Beautiful and cool apartment next to SAGRADA FAMILIA (Gaudi area) and PLAZA de TOROS MONUMENTAL.
The house location is perfect. Cheaps supermarkets around.
The beach is 10 minutes to home, in bike.
All the appartment is new: design kitchen & bathroom. The flat is equipped with all you need, and the rooms have bed linen, towels and hairdryer.
There are two double rooms, and a living-room with double sofa-bed.
The apartment has place for 7 persons!
The most amazing in the flat is the wonderful and big terrace (25 m2) where the sun is brighting during all the day..in front of the terrace there is a Park so you see trees and birds.
I hope we can see each other soon in Barcelona !
We are a small family who stayed 4 nights in Esthers place and we where very satisfied with the appartment with the own terrace and the super great and strong wifi. It is so near la Sagrada Familia and from there we where walking to the la Rambla every day and down to the beach. We also found small favorite restaurants nearby and that was great after a hole day downtown.
DO NOT DO IT!!! I have booked this trip to Barcelona and the experience with the host Esther was absolutely horrible that ended up in blackmail me in getting a good review as I forgot my jacket at her place.
The situation is that she will not have the common sense of sending the jacket, even if, she said to do so, unless, I write her most likely a positive review that will suit her. I will not do this as it is against any principal that I stand for!
The reason for this attitude is that the flat that she is advertising as WIFI- BIG TERRACE SAGRADA FAMILIA is not according to reality: the place is not clean, towels are not fresh and they are stained, the terrace is not clean and we were not able to stay in that area and also the pictures of the apartment presented on airbnb do not match the reality as the house has no light and no windows so no air. The place is maximum of 5 persons not 7 and the terrace has no view as it is said in the description.
Furthermore, during my stay, I have also asked to change the bed linens from day 1 as the ones that were on the bed were dirty and had a strange smell. She brought new ones but still had the smell of old linens and of course we paid 10 euro/person. Cockroaches are also present for the better enjoyment of the guests and apparently all of the above are also confirmed by other reviews left by other guests.
From my perspective, I am willing to accept that I will not receive my jacket back from this woman that has no customer care skills and good will. On the other hand I will post the truth about this apartment and the low end attitude of the host that has the impression she paid for my stay and not the other way around.
Esther is a very nice and friendly host. However, it would be better if there is no cockroaches and fleas in the apartment. There's a nice kitchen in the flat, but the mosquitoes and cockroaches in the kitchen didn't allow us to enter the kitchen. I would suggest Esther to clean the kitchen well, dump the garbage, and also remove the water from the pots and plants to avoid mosquitoes.
Moreover, originally each of us need to pay 10 euros (per person) for the bed linens (which I found quite unreasonable), but Esther is still nice to give us a discount - we just paid 30 euros for 4 people. All in all, the flat is in a very nice location, 5 min walk to La Sagrada Familia and there's supermarkets and many restaurants around the area. But really, clean up the flat before welcoming guests to stay. Good wifi connection.
We came to Barcelona with a group of guys towards the end of a holiday throughout Europe. To be very honest this was not exactly what we expected due to the lack of certain amenities and overall cleanness of the place.
What we did like about the apartment is the location (2 blocks away from Sagrada Familia and the nearest Metro station) and the balcony. The building is a little noisy and u feel very close to your neighbors at time.
Esther is a lovely and friendly person with a great welcoming smile.
The location of the house is perfect, near Holy Family, two subway lines and buses. To park your car is not impossible, but is payment zone.
Only consists of two rooms plus the lounge. the space for 4 persons is fine.
Is a dark apartment, Kitchen is good but little
We saw a cockroaches present in the apartment.
Finally, the apartment cleaning is not good (with cleaning fee).
El apartamento es exactamente como dice el anuncio. Queda cerca de la sagrada familia y tiene un metro muy cerca! Lo recomendaria a quenes quieren un piso pequeno pero completamente equipado para explorar la ciudad.

It was a great stay at Esther's apartment. Altough our arrival time was delayed everything worked out fine.
The apartment is really spacious, the terrace nice and the wifi fast.
Esther is a lovely person and the location of the apartment just felt perfect.
In case you arrive at Barcelona airport you just need to take the subway for less than 4 € to a close station called Clot.
