My recent stay was perfect at this aparment. Nice location and a nice apartment. Very clean and well prepared. Thank you again.
En nuestro caso fue mi hijo el que se contactó con Karen ya que él vive allá en Barcelona. Sus comentarios fueron muy buenos con respecto al muy buen trato y amabilidad de los dueños. Hubo un pequeño inconveniente con uno de los caños de desague y enseguida tuvimos respuesta e inmediatamente lo solucionaron. Estuvimos muy contentos!! Gracias Karen!!
Karen was a great host and very responsive and welcoming. The apartment was very comfortable. It was a perfect space for our group of four adults and two children. Each room has its own heater, which was helpful as the late December nights were a bit chilly. The apartment is well situated in a safe, quieter neighborhood close to a supermarket and some cafes and not far from two metro stops.
The reservation was canceled 17 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We loved this apartment! On top floor (5th) with good elevator.
Whole apartment was spotless; beds comfortable; spacious bathroom with fluffy towels; private terrace was cool and shady for breakfast; excellent location with bakery, grocer, and subway on same block. Walking distance to University area and la Rambla. Two air conditioners. Great for our family of 4.
Host was friendly and helpful. Since we did not need our rental car, host recommended "Parking Viajeros", which was perfect: 7 euros/day, very safe and clean, 4 subway stops away. Would definitely stay at this apartment again!
Karen was GREAT, The flat was GREAT -- We look forward to returning to Barcelona. The flat is in what we believe is the best location in Barcelona -- not in a complete tourist area like LaRambla -- but close to everything. We walked to La Sagrada Familia (about six blocks), lots of grocery stores (within a couple of blocks) and cafes (50 meters), even more bakeries or panaderias (everywhere you go), Passage de Gracia and Casa Batllo (four or five blocks), Plaza Cataluna and La Rambla (a little more than a kilometer -- not far when looking at the great architecture and snacking on a baguette), the beach (four metro stops on the Yellow Line) and whatever else you might want (we went to many hardware stores, working on personal projects). As for transportation, the flat is close to two different Metro lines, multiple bus lines and a taxi is easy to get at any hour. The flat is comfortable and clean, with three bedrooms and a kitchen with anything you'd need.
The apartment is in a great location – central, near to the subway station "Urgell" and the Aerobus station "Gran Via - Urgell" – and easy to get to places of interest. Also you find supermarkets, etc. around the corner. The apartment is very nice and clean, identical to the photos but a bit smaller. Karen was very friendly and very accommodated when we needed some "extra help"! We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. So, if we're coming back to BCN one day, this would be a great place to be!
The flat is in a great location (we attended Primavera Sound Festival). Karen was very helpful and really a great host. I absolutely recommend staying there ==> we were 4 people, that means the flat was really packed - but for 2-3 it's absolutely perfect!
This is a cute little apartment in a great neighborhood.
Karen was helpful - no problems meeting her and she gave us good local info.
The apartment is cosy and cute. The bathroom is small and a bit awkward. The kitchen was small, but functional. The bed is comfortable and fits 2. There is a futon that could sleep 1 or 2 more people, but I think the apartment would feel a bit tight with more than 3 people.
We really liked the neighborhood. It was not touristy, and seemed safe, with lots of families and an artsy vibe. There are a ton of cafes and restaurants on the main street nearby. Great running/biking along the waterfront by the beach. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the metro, with a bus stop closer. In a few stops, you are right in the centre of the city.
Appartement très propre, nous avons été bien accueilli et tout était conforme à l'annonce. Terrasse très spacieuse et agréable. Il n'y qu'un hic : la sdb/toilettes est entre le salon et la chambre donc passante ...
