Helmut and Gerard's apartment in Barcelona was beyond amazing - beautifully decorated, clean and modern, and has the best outdoor space you could ask for. The pictures really don't do it justice. The hosts were incredibly helpful and responsive before and during the stay, and they also helped schedule airport transfers. My mom and I had a great time at this Airbnb and I would not hesitate to recommend this listing!
This apartment was AMAZING. It was VERY clean, quiet, spacious, and had ample and comfortable outdoor space. My partner and I actually spent a lot more time in the apartment than expected because we enjoyed it so much - which is saying something when the alternative is exploring Barcelona!!!! The hosts were great, quick communicators. Highly recommended!!!!!!!
Perfect apartment for our stay in Barcelona - even better than the pictures! The location is great, close to bars and restaurants and less than 5 mins from the station.
Gerard was very helpful, easy to contact and very accommodating to our schedule for checking in and out.
We would definitely want to stay in the apartment again!
Diese Unterkunft ist wirklich absolut zu empfehlen!
Wir hatten eine super schöne Woche in Barcelona. Der Empfang war sehr herzlich, so dass wir uns sofort gut aufgehoben fühlten.
Die Verkehrsanbindung war ebenfalls klasse, da man nur wenige Gehminuten zum Bahnhof oder zur Metro brauchte. Somit kam man ziemlich einfach und recht schnell schon an die wichtigsten Orte.
Für alle Fussballfans ist auch zu erwähnen dass man zum Camp Nou bequem zu Fuss gehen kann ;)
Die Tipps von Gerard waren auch sehr nützlich!
Zur Wohnung brauch ich nicht viel sagen. Haargenauso wie die Fotos es versprechen und mit allem wichtigen ausgestattet.
Von der obrigen Dachterrasse hat man einen herrlichen Ausblick und die untere Terrasse lädt dazu ein die Abende bei einer Flasche Wein ausklingen zu lassen, dank der schönen "Chill-Lounge".
Sollten wir nochmal nach Barcelona reisen, werden wir garantiert wieder hier buchen!
Gerard's place is great. The pictures are completely accurate. It is spotless, well-designed (replete with modern furniture), comfortable and spacious. There are a ton of amenities he offered (espresso pods and so on) which we didn't even take advantage of, as we spent most of our time exploring the city.
Gerard himself is extremely accommodating, knowledgable about his city, and helpful.
The area is quiet and feels safe. Most of your main attractions are a few miles away, so it might be less central than some might prefer. But you are within striking distance of the city's biggest train station. We ended up walking nearly everywhere. The only time the location was an issue was getting back to the apartment to shower/change and go to dinner, which required a bit more of a detour from the downtown area. Also, the bathroom affords less privacy than some couples may prefer, so prepare to be comfortable with one another.
Overall, we were very pleased with the space. I also highly recommend taking Gerard up on his offer to utilize his driver to-and-from the airport. Very convenient, and cheaper than taking a cab.
My wife and I spent four nights in Barcelona. The apartment suited us as we were traveling around Europe, it made a change from staying in hotels and gave us the home away from home feeling. The apartment is compact and contemporary, with all the essential items required for a short stay. We enjoyed being able to do our washing and prepare meals and the outdoor living areas were inviting. The photos are true to the living space and the apartment was immaculate. Although the location of the apartment was not in the city centre, Sants station was near by and we purchased a three day travel pass which made getting around easy. There are a few bars and restaurants nearby although we only frequented one particular bar, preferring to explore Barcelona city Centre. A shopping Centre is also located approximately 10 minutes walk away.
If you are happy to travel short distances we would happlily recommend this apartment, we were completely satisfied with our experience and would not hesitate to stay there again. Our only feedback is my wife would have liked a full length mirror for getting ready and a ironing board.
If Airbnb is ever going to release a top-10 of Barcelona apartments, Gerard's apartment definitely deserves a spot on that list. Both the apartment as we as Gerard's help and services are just incredible.
On arrival, Gerard greeted us with open arms and Immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. He showed us around in the apartment and explained us how to operate all the nifty features the apartment has to offer. He also provided us with his personal recommendations for food & drinks in the neighbourhood.
The very stylish interior, the glorious living room, the incredible comfortable bed, the even more awesome terrace,... the entire apartment is a dream come true. I'm pretty sure my girlfriend and I spent more time enjoying the apartment than we did at roaming and travelling through the city!
The apartment is located in a very nice and cosy neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is also less tourist-y, resulting in a very relaxed and quite environment. The nearest metro-station is only a few minutes from the apartment, and takes you straight to all the popular places in Barcelona.
If we ever visit Barcelona again in the future, first thing I'll do is check if Gerard's apartment is available!
