Interaction with Guests
We're on hand should you need any thing or have any questions.
village within a city as people describe it; walking distance to everywhere it is only 15 minute walk to Passeig de Gracia yet a step away from that city feeling. It enjoys bustling squares and vibrant bar and cafe life. If you want to experience the real Barcelona and feel like a local this is the location for you.
It is only one block (2 minute walk) from the Metro station and just 7 stops to the beach. Just 3 stops away from Paseo de Gracia metro Station and 4 stops away from Plaza Cataluña (metro Urquinaona).
Other Things to Note
IMPORTANT: If you do not arrive until after 10pm on the day of arrival please contact us before making your booking.
As you will be staying in a fully touristic licensed apartment There is a tourist tax of .75 cent per adult per night, this needs to be paid on check in please. Children under 16's are free.
- No smoking inside the apartment but there are 3 small balconies altogether where you can smoke.
- Respectful and reasonable quiet noise levels especially after 11pm.
- No loud parties please!
- With the hot weather we would really appreciate if you could clean down kitchen surfaces at least once a day (only if used) and bring out the garbage at least every second day. This is necessary in the hot weather, thank you! The garbage bins are located very close to your apartment - near the main front door. They are the big grey plastic containers - you can't miss them! Cheers!
- Most importantly relax and enjoy your stay!

Nous avons été enchantées de notre séjour dans le logement de Phil et Fiona. L'appartement se trouve dans le quartier de Gracia, quartier très charmant et agréable, plein de vie et de petits restos.
Outre le fait que Phil et Fiona soient très professionnels et sympathiques, l'appartement correspondait parfaitement à nos attentes et correspondait aux photos et à la description du site. Un appartement très charmant (les sols sont magnifiques), lumineux et calme. Nous reviendrons certainement. Thanks Phil and Fiona!
Phil & Fiona could'nt do the check in with us, but they send some good friends, so we had a warm welcome from Paula and her friend. They showed us everything and had some very good tips to go out in Barcelona. The flat was wonderful, clean and we felt like Home. We had a realy good time in Barcelona. The communication with Phil and Fiona was very easy and they where helpful all the time. I realy can reccoment to stay at their place. It's absolut wonderful. Thank you Phil and Fiona for having us guests, we realy enjoyed every minute.
The apt was fantastic, as was Phil and Fiona. We had such a great time, and can't wait to come back. Would recommend this apt. to anyone. Thanks much!
Das erste positive Erlebnis war der persönliche Empfang und die Begrüssung am Ankunftstag. Die Wohnung hat total unseren Vorstellungen entsprochen. Wir waren positiv überrascht, dass wir sogar eine Waschmaschine, einen Geschirrspüler sowie eine Nespresso-Maschine vorgefunden haben. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Toll ist auch, dass die U-Bahn in nächster Nähe ist und wir den Strand in kurzer Zeit (4 Stationen) erreichen konnten (Vielen Dank noch für den Tipp der 10-T-Tickets :-). Ein weiterer besonders positiver Punkt war die Möglichkeit des flexiblen Check-Outs und die spontane Hilfe, welche uns Phil angeboten hat, als wir am Flughafen unseren Rückflug verpasst haben. Vielen Dank für dieses tolle Erlebnis in Barcelona - wir kommen bestimmt wieder.
We enjoyed staying in this comfortable and airy apartment, Gracia is a great area to explore, a real local neighbourhood, yet not too far from the attractions. Phil and Fiona were reliable and easy to deal with - a bit more personal info would be useful, like recommendations for good restaurants in the area.
Allt var perfekt! Bra information och kontakt innan ankomst. Bra mottagande vid ankomst och uppföljning under vistelsen. Lägenheten var mycket mysig trivsam, med sköna sängar. Lägenheten har allt du behöver för att laga egen mat om du önskar. Vi kände oss som hemma.
Övrigt - lägenheten ligger i lugna kvarter, men har ändå nära till mysiga torg, restauranger och affärer, bagerier. Då går på 20 minuter till shoppingkvarteren. Tunnelbanan ligger runt knuten. Vi kommer definitivt hyra den igen när vi åker tillbaks till Barcelona.
