Our stay with Vince at the Penthouse Suite in Barcelona was exactly what we expected, and more!
The apartment is very clean and in a wonderful location - away from the constant hum of big city traffic and very quiet despite being only 2 blocks away from Las Ramblas. After exploring the city, we'd have picked this spot again on location alone - the Gothic is centrally located - for both the metro and walking - but the apartment's location on a small walking-only street doesn't make you feel like the area is overrun with tourists. And, as tough as it might be to believe, I think the terrace is actually undersold on the site - it's absolutely huge, has a bunch of different areas to lounge/sit, and gets a lot of sunlight if it's a nice day out.
Vince is a wonderful host - helpful in providing advice on Barcelona destinations, always game for a great, interesting conversation and attentive to whatever you might need at the apartment.
We would definitely stay there again!
Staying at the PenthouseSuite was our very first Airbnb experience and it couldn't have been better! Vince and his partner were very welcoming and the flat was exactly as it looked in the pictures. The location was excellent, the flat clean and tidy, internet worked well and the terrace was very relaxing. It was home away from home. Highly recommended!
Vince is great host. He welcomed us with drinks and went out of his way to get us a reservation for 8 people in an amazing restaurant on short notice. The room isn't big, but very nice and the rooftop terrace is spacious and really beautiful.
Highly recommend this place :)
Vince was great. He made us feel comfortable right away. We had a glass of wine on his terrace when we arrived and talked about many things. We wanted to go out to dinner and he recommended a fabulous restaurant within a 5-minute walk of his place.
The apartment was smaller than we expected but nice and clean. When I booked it, I didn't realize we wouldn't have our own bathroom. I might not have booked (at the highest seasonal price) had I known; but to Vince's credit, he sent me a detailed email and did disclose that we would be sharing the bathroom with him and his partner Julio. As it turns out, they are very discreet and they were never near the bathroom when we needed it. We were also free to use the kitchen whenever we wanted. Also, their Wi-Fi worked very well.
The terrace is great, as advertized. There are several ancient church bell towers very close by, including the Cathedral's; and you can also see all the way to the port and the famous W Hotel. It is very peaceful up there, but at the same time you feel you're in the middle of everything.
The location was the best you could hope for in Barcelona, in the middle of the old town, with all the small pedestrian streets and the beautiful old buildings, but also within a stone's throw of the Rambla. Absolutely loved it. One great feature: the apartment is within a 2-minute walk of the famous Boqueria market, off the Rambla. Tremendous place to shop for jamon, fruit, cheese, olives, bread, etc.
Vi havde den bedste tur til Barcelona og Vincent var den bedste vært! Ud (email hidden) sjov og imødekommende, var han utrolig hjælpsom og gæstfri!! Han gjorde vores tur til let, sjov og fantastisk!! Kan kun give Vincent mine varmeste anbefalinger med på vejen! Og hvis/når jeg skal tilbage til Barcelona, håber (email hidden) hos Vincent igen!! Skønneste vært!
Vince makes you feel very welcome.
He is always open for a chat and/or a drink and you can ask him for any kind of recommendations and such.
Vince made us feel very welcome in his lovely home; the penthouse is so central and only a 10 minute walk to the beach and loads of great restaurants. Vince was very helpful when we wanted to know where to go for dinner or how to catch the metro around the city. The roof terrace is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for sunbathing or enjoying some drinks in the evening. Barcelona as a whole is just amazing so all in all we had an unbelievable stay - thanks Vince!
