The flat is centrally located in L’Eixample on Consell de Cent, in the heart of the city. Around the corner is Enric Granados - voted the most desirable street to live in Barcelona, with numerous bars, clubs & restaurants. Metro stations Universitat and Passeige de Gracia are a few minutes away but you’ll find you can walk practically everywhere and if you don’t feel like it there are easy transport links to the major tourist attractions (Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Barceloneta). Also in short walking distance are Placa Catalunya for Aerobus links to the Airport & Passeige de Gracia famous for the Gaudi buildings. Plaza Espana, La Rambla, El Raval, Barrio-Gotic and Borne Districts are all close by.
The apartment is great for large families or friends, accommodating a maximum of 6 people. The apartment is on the first floor with elevator and has 2 bedrooms with double beds, and a lounge with a sofa bed. All rooms face the interior patio so although it's bright and airy, there's no traffic noise for those late risers. The bathroom has a shower with great pressure and constant hot water.

We booked the apartment so some of our senior staff could attend Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The apartment was as described, great location and great value. Aaron was really helpful. Would definitely recommend it to others.
We spent a wonderful week in Barcelona staying in Aaron's appartment. Aaron is a responsible host and extremely nice person!
When we arrived, Aaron had already ben waiting for us at the appartment. The appartment itself is very nice and convinient. 2 bedrooms are fully furnished, the kitchen is well-equipped. We cooked for ourselves from time to time. And even used a washing machine! For the quests coming from Russia and other Northern countries: the flats in Spain do not usually have central heating. But there are 3 heaters that do their job for all the rooms. In February we felt comfortably warm in the appartment. There are no heaters in the bathroom and in the kitchen - but they are not needed there. The location of the appartment is fantastic: my friend living in Barcelona said that the location was the best possible. As one of the pluses: right aroud the corner there is a good cafe (Breakfast bar) and wonderful restaurant - Flamant. Flamant is highly recommended!
As a nice surprise from the host - we have (email hidden)lentines gift in the fridge:). Thaks a lot, Aaron!
We are fully happy with the place we lived in in Barcelona and I am ready to recommend it to my friends going to visit Barcelona in the next few months.
Irina it was a pleasure hosting you both. We are very lucky to have this apartment in such a prime locaton. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, we always try to make our guests stay as special enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Hole to see you agin in the future and hope it's not too cold for you in Russia. Best wishes.
Aaron is a perfect host. He welcomed us with a map of the neighborhood and a lot of great hints on what to do, where to eat and they were all very useful. The apartment is in a very Nice area, close to everything, with buses and subways at the hand. The apartment has everything you need to a nice stay, and we mean it since we stayed for more than two weeks. And whenever we needed anything like help with home appliances Aaron responded very promptly. It was a perfect stay. We sure recommend Aaron's apartment and we plan to be back there.
Very often traveling. We can compare. The apartment is very convenient, clean , beautiful. The apartment has all have to live there as at home. Owner very nice and helpful. Is near the metro station, in walking distance. We recommend to stay in this apartment.
This apartment was in an excellent location and with a Patisserie on the first floor with wonderful smells all day long what's not to love. Aaron is accessible, friendly and very helpful. The neighborhood is filled with lots of great restaurants and shopping and the subway and bus lines are easy to get to and navigate. The apartment is very quiet and clean. Would definitely stay here again.
The apartment was perfect! Clean, perfectly situated and Aaron was a great host. Would definitely stay here again.
Aaron is a perfect host!
Despite the late hour of our arrival Aaron took the time to serve us some drinks and tell us about Barcelona and what to see and do.
When it comes to the apartment there are both good and less good things...
The good things are far more than the less good. There are only two downsides as we see it. As we were 4 people staying in the apartment the bathroom is a bit on the small side. You can not be two at the same time there. So it took a while to shower and freshen up in the morning. The other downside of the apartment is that it has no aircondition. When we came the weather was very humid making the apartment rather warm.
However, Aaron had put in fans that helped alot.
Now to some of the many upsides:
* Nicely furnished apartment
* VERY clean
* Great kitchen
* WELL working WiFi
* Good location (15 minutes walk from Placa Cataluna)
* Good restaurants and bars close by (especially the tapas and paella at the tapas-restaurant just around the corner) BUT avoid the La Flauta - WORST service EVER!!!
* Calm and quiet in the building
An apartment worth the money.
We had a great time!
I enjoyed my stay very much. The apartment is very nice, the location in Eixample is great - easy to get there from the airport, close to several subway stations, in an area with many nice bars and cafes and little shops, but the flat itself is very quiet. Aaron was very helpful in recommending places to go out which you would not normally find in a travel guide - overall a very pleasant experience! Highly recommended!
We had a great experience in Barcelona. The flat is located near the University Metro Stop (but a taxi from the airport worked better). Aaron was waiting for us when we arrived and helped us get settled in the area. Aaron gave us great places to eat, bars to visit and local attractions. He was also available our whole stay always happy to answer questions.
The apartment is a great size for 3 people with two bedrooms, one bath and a large kitchen. There is a lot to do in the neighborhood in terms of bars, restaurants and museums/historical stuff. If you want to venture into the city the Underground is a 5 minute walk. Honestly, spend a whole week in Barcelona---you'll need that much time to see the necessities!
I recommend staying at this apartment any time. We will be back to Barcelona.
We had a lovely stay with Aaron! The apartment was beautiful, with candles all lit when we arrived. He was very accommodating with checkin and checkout, and even helped us with the hot water at midnight! This apartment is also in the most beautiful area in Barcelona, close to a number of stunning restaurants and cafes. Highly recommended.
