  • Wonderful apartment. Exactly as advertised. Comfortable and large, accomodates quite a few people -- 7 or 8. Three separate bedrooms and a living room pull out. Clean everywhere, really well equipped kitchen ( although I always wish for better knives ) and the terrace is just fantastic. You can see Sagrada Familia towers from here! Neighborhood has really good supermarket around the corner, coffee, bakeries nearby. Restaurants in the area, though we cook for ourselves. Walking distance to the Gaudi houses. Metro nearby gets you everywhere. We would surely stay here again.

  • Amazing apartment in an awesome location; Super spacious, comfy and clean. The host was very accommodating. My friends and I loved it.

  • If I had to do it over again, I would book another apartment instead of this one. First time in Barcelona, I chose this apartment based on the reviews, pictures and a general sense of where it was located on the map. First thing you should know, the apartment is very close to Ramblas. A good location in the heart of the city near Ramblas, Placa Catalunya, Bouqeria. That said, the small street it's on is dirty and filled with beggars and most had dogs lying next to them. It's quite upsetting to see every day. Once you walk beyond the street it's on and away from Ramblas, there are tons of beautiful streets to walk around in. Staying on Portaferrissa where this apartment is located (while has lots of shops) would not have been my first choice had I known what its like. Also, taxi's don't go down this street, so if you have a lot of bags it might be a challenge. Secondly, I originally booked the stay with Lina and all communications were with her. Upon arrival, it was someone else from her company filling in because she was on vacation. I would have appreciated if she gave me a heads up as to who I was going to be meeting. Up-front at booking, it was communicated to Lina that getting the apartment as early as possible was a priority as my parents were arriving at 7am and would be tired after travel. Lina's colleague agreed to meet at 2:30pm to get keys (it was the earliest they could do). The apartment hadn't even begun to be cleaned yet when I arrived. It was a mess! The place looked awful and it was frustrating to walk into that mess without even knowing it wasn't cleaned yet. It ended up taking a few hours to clean and we waited until about 5:30pm when it was ready. No discount was offered for the inconvenience, but they did bring over a bottle of champagne. The apartment was much improved once it was cleaned. However, it doesn't look like the pictures in person. It's not as bright and a few things to keep in mind; the furniture was different than in the pictures (not as nice), one of the kitchen sinks is broken, no nespresso cups are provided and the apartment generally needs maintenance. Building elevator only fits two or three people at a time. The beds are not comfortable. There was a taxi strike during the stay and we regretted booking Airbnb instead of a hotel because there was no concierge readily available to help us figure out alternative transport. All in all, not bad.. but I would try to stay on a better street if you can along one of the many charming and cleaner streets away from Ramblas.

  • Het contact verliep goed, ze waren aanwezig bij aankomst en vertrek. Het appartement was licht, modern en ruim. De locatie ook prima, heerlijk een supermarket in de straat. Allen de kakkerlakken vonden wij vervelend.

    Response from Lina:

    Beste Desiree,
    Bedankt voor uw feedback en alle commentaren. Ik ben oprecht excuses voor dit ongemak veroorzaakt door de kakkerlak. Wij beschouwen het reinigen als een van onze sterke punten en we streven ernaar om onze appartementen en gebouwen in perfecte omstandigheden ordelijkheid en netheid te houden. Onze prioriteit is altijd de tevredenheid en het comfort van onze gasten. Zoals je gemerkt hebben we een schoon team altijd in het gebouw, niet alleen om het reinigen van de appartementen nadat u uitchecken, maar ook voor het hele gebouw, inclusief dak en gemeenschappelijke ruimtes schoon te maken.
     
    Maar ondanks al onze inspanningen kunnen we niet alle appartementen omgeving en aangrenzende straten beheersen. Dit is Local Government plicht, en ze doen een goede baan schoonmaken van de straten en de riolering, maar soms hebben ze niet goed schoon te maken, of ze slaan het voor een paar weken en een bug kan krijgen in de mensen buizen op zoek naar voedsel , speciaal op het oude gedeelte van de stad. Dit is een probleem in alle oude steden van Europa (Parijs, Londen, Rome, Praag ...). Trouwens, twee keer per jaar een plaag controle bedrijf sturen we naar het gebouw om alles te controleren. Dit bedrijf verspreidt een soort van chemische, volkomen onschadelijk voor mensen, om een bug aanwezigheid te voorkomen, maar zoals gezegd, dit is nutteloos als de Local Government helpt ons niet goed schoonmaken van de straten.
    Nogmaals, mijn excuses voor de aanwezigheid kakkerlak. Als u ons over dit probleem tijdens uw verblijf had aangemeld, zouden we ons best doen nemen van een aantal maatregelen om uw verblijf te veraangenamen, of zelfs je het veranderen. We zullen de bestaande maatregelen om te voorkomen dat ook dit gebeuren te versterken en zal de Local Government praat met haar aanwezigheid in het gebied te vergroten.
     PS : sorry voor (website hidden) vertalen van het Engels

  • Fantastic location! The apartment is beautiful and the host was happy for us to contact for any further info or suggestions. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this apartment.

  • This lovely apt is in a great neighborhood, close to plazas, a beautiful cathedral, bars, restaurants, etc. The host was very kind and responsive. The biggest downer was that since this is a corporate, and not a private apartment, there were rather hefty fees for late check-in (I arrived around 9p) as well as tourist taxes.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. We were a group of 6 girls (originally meant to be 7). Check in was very easy and clear, there was someone waiting at the apartment when we arrived. The showers were great and the bathrooms clean and modern, we didn't run out of hot water at all. The two double bedrooms were nicest, leading out to a courtyard, and the doubles were the european style two singles put together, which was fine. The other two rooms had two single beds each and had no windows but were still large, light and airy. Fantastic location! Only downside perhaps would be there were no full length mirrors in the whole place, only the over sink mirrors in the bathroom, which would have been really helpful with 6 girls when getting ready. This was only a minor issue though. Well stocked with a lovely lounge area. The electric card key to the door was tricky a few times but generally fine. Would defo recommend!
