Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Eugene's apartment, although it seems slightly smaller than on the pictures. It worked very well for our group of 4 - more could be slightly problematic. Everything worked just fine and we very much appreciated lovely white bedding and towels, hot showers, hair dryer, iron and a balcony :)
    It's a great location, too - very close to La Ramblas, the port and Gotic.
    We can definitely recommend this flat.

  • The apartment was lovely! It's really close to the Ramblas and Playa Reial, only a few minutes walk. The apartment is not huge, but it's big enough for 5 persons. There were 3 bedrooms and 2 toilets. The shower was a bit small, but ok.
    There were only two things we didn't like. We had to bring our luggage to a bike shop, because we had to check out at 11 and our fligth was at 10 in the evening. There was no opportunity to leave the luggage somewhere else. This costs us almost 20 euro for a day. Not really a good service.
    The other thing, there were not enough glasses and towels.

    But at the end, I can really recommend this place to everybody! If I will come back to Barcelona,I will definitively go back to this apartment!

  • What a great place to stay!!!!Very clean, kitchen equipped even with citrus juicer.We had great contact with Eugene, answering all the questions. Highly recomended!

    February 2014
  • Eugene answered all my emails promptly and was flexible when required. He speaks excellent English as do the people who manage the apartment.

    The apartment was just like the pictures. Immaculately clean, well maintained with smart decor.

    The beds were comfortable and lots of wardrobe space. Also the provision of towels and shower gel was very welcome.

    The only downside to this apartment is that we were six adults and it was a little crowded for us but that is not a criticism of the apartment as such.

    The location was excellent. Barcelona can feel a little unsafe at times but this area felt fine and there were plenty of bars and restaurants near by.

    I would definitely recommend it. Excellent value.

  • This apartment is beautiful, clean and as described. Eugene is quickly responsive and helpful. We had no issues and there were no hidden costs. The neighborhood isn't the nicest, but it is close to Las Ramblas and we had no safety issues. Overall, I think this was a beautiful apartment, which served our purposes as described and I would stay here again and recommend others stay here.

  • The apartment was perfect for our weekend in Barcelona. Great location, easy check-in, clean, secure and well equipped (even had tea and coffee!). Everything was as it looked in the pictures. The shower was not working but the empty apartment next door was made available to us for our stay so there was no inconvenience caused. One thing to note is that the room with the bunk beds does not have any windows, not really a problem but worth mentioning. Would definitely recommend this place!
