Très bon séjour chez Delphine ! Même si nous ne l'avons pas rencontré, son ami Nacho, qui tient le bar attenant à l'appartement nous a accueilli !
Le quartier est vraiment très sympa, avec plein de petits restaurants, bars, un supermarché et un primeur dans la rue ! Je recommande le restaurant Ethiopien dans la même rue, ainsi que le retau a tapas "chez lou" prés du métro !
La disposition de l'appartement n'était pas tout a fait la même que sur les photos mais on s'y est senti très bien ! On reviendra c'est sur !
Nice, simple and sharming place in area I love . Easy to reach , good for stay, no any problems be in touch with owner.
Very nice relaxed house.
The apartment was in a good location and a great neighbourhood - very convenient to go into the city for sight seeing etc. Bathroom was tiny - more like a closet - and the washing machine was tiny and in a storage area that was not easily to go in and out of! Basic amenities like clean sheets and pillow cases were not in place - Air conditioning runs good. Not enough clothes line to hang the clothes to dry. I think the apartment is better suited to youngsters, especially if it is said to sleep 6 given that it has only one large-ish one bedroom! Delphine's friend who runs the bar next door was extremely helpful during our stay.
The location of this apartment is really great. It is within walking distance of two different subway lines. It is also very easy to reach Park Güell and the Sagrada Familia on foot. For vegetarians, it is useful to know that there is a great health food store nearby called Veritas (on Carrer del Torrent de l'Olla).
A few people have mentioned the noise issue with the bar next door. One recommendation I have if you are worried about this is to run the fan or air conditioner at night. My mother is a very light sleeper, but we found that the steady sound of the fan was enough to keep her from waking up.
Very spacious flat in wonderful area of Barcelona. Lots of great restaurants and bars nearby. The Ethopian restaurant was delicious, great cocktails at the Brazilian bar across the road and the BEST bakery at the bottom of the street called Forn Ideal (try their pastries especially the chocolate croissants with bars of real chocolate inside). It was really nice to be able to come back to a large, relaxing space after a day of sightseeing. The bathroom was a little cramped and basic but sufficient. We also used the little washing machine in the storage area which was really useful to have since we'd been travelling for a while and had a bit of washing. Communication with Delphine was always very friendly, though sometimes it was a little hard to get hold of her but I'm guessing this is because she's travelling and overseas. When we arrived we met Delphine's friend Nacho (who owns the bar next door) to get the keys and to be shown around. Though there is a bar next door, this is part of the charm of staying in Gracia. It's a relaxed area with lots of things going on but it's fairly low key and we never had a problem with noise or music. Though you can hear it through the wall, the bar closes fairly early and it's never too loud to be annoying, though I guess it depends on how light a sleeper you are!
The only thing we would say is to make sure you note that cleaning is not included (this is stated in the property description) so you do need to tidy up/clean before you leave which may not be to some people's taste. It would be nice if a cleaning service was provided but we were aware of this so it wasn't too much of an issue. Because of this, I think the flat wasn't as clean as it could have been when we arrived but it was okay.
We really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and staying in Delphine's flat meant that we experienced the city from a local perspective.
Large nice apartment, great for younger couples and groups. There is a bar next door which was a bit noisy at night since the apt. is on the ground floor. Good location in Gracia. The air conditioning worked well.
Good stay! Nice, relaxed with a lot of space.
We loved the neighborhood because of the people, little squares and relaxed vibe.
Unfortunately we haven't met Delphine but the contact and key transfer went very well.
I had a very pleasant stay in Gracia. Delphine is very welcoming and helpful. Great space with a peaceful vibe.
Delphine is a great host and the place is so lovely. We had a great trip at her apartment. The neighbor is also very nice, there is a great Ethiopian restaurant in the street.
Muy buena persona, muy amable y interesante. Agradable y respectuosa. Una de las mejores experiencias.
