We spent five weeks in May/June 2014 in the apartment. The apartment has just been great and we had a wonderful time in Barcelona.
The neighbourhood is very nice: very relaxed and not crowded with tourists. The apartment is also very well connected to all parts of town by busses and the metro and also well connected to the airport as the airport bus stop is only a few yards away. There are supermarkets very close and nice tapas bars etc.
The apartment itself has a large open plan kitchen/living room plus two bed-rooms and two bath-rooms. It is in the attic and has two roof terraces, one on each side of the building. Especially the one facing the street is just fantastic and has stunning views of Barcelona. There are also a few steps leading to the roof of the house (from which the pictures of the terrace has been taken) but we never really used this.
The apartment itself is very nice, very clean and tidy and well equipped with everything we needed, plenty of kitchen utensils, etc.
We have never met Nuria personally but handover of keys and everything else went very smoothly.
All in all we had a really nice time in the apartment and would definitely try to stay there again should we come back to Barcelona some time.
A note to families travelling with small children (we lived in the apartment with our two children, age 4.5 years and 7 months): if you, like us, use one of the three-wheel prams (a mountain buggy in our case), note that it does not fit into the lift. We had to take one wheel off to get it in, which is doable but a bit of a nuisance. So think about bringing a smaller pram.
Also, we were warned by Nuria that the bathroom floors are a bit delicate and can be damaged by water, so the children may have to be a bit more careful with splashing water during a bath.
But these are just small notes and in all other aspects we found the apartment (and also the terraces) very child-friendly and our children had a great time there as well.
Great apartment. The pictures represent the apartment well, with the fact that there is three great terraces a real plus point - if you come in spring spending an afternoon in the sun on the terrace would be fantastic. Close to all public transport, and the area around is both quiet enough, but has plenty of grocery stores, bars and restaurants. Nuria was really easy to deal with - prompt replies, great communication and her friend was there waiting for me when I arrived. Also have to say the apartment was spotless - everything was really fresh and we played 'Spot the dust' - nobody won !
The flat is absolutely beautiful, I came here for a work trip but would be happy to use it again for holiday. Very good location with the airport bus stopping in the next street; a quiet neighborhood with Ramblas ia 20min walk. Good communication from Nuria who is a great host.
We had a very good time at Barcelona especially because this city is just great but also thanks to Nuria's flat which was perfect!
We were two couples and space was good enough for 4 people - 2 bathrooms are just great, bedrooms are confortables and the decoration is excellent.
We have spent 5 wonderful days at that apartment! It is very clean and tidy, fully equipped with everything that you may need!
It is only 30 minutes walk from main tourist attractions and 2 minutes walk from Airport shuttle bus stop.
Neighborhood is nice and very calm. So you can be sure you will relax there from La Rambla noise :)
We will be happy to stay at this place one more time and strongly recommend it for everyone!
Nuria and her boyfriend where terrific guests. Felt very comfortable having them stay with us. Very nice couple. I highly recommend to all hosts. Would have them back to stay anytime.
Una pareja estupenda, muy simpática, agradable, educada. Perfecta comunicación. Fue todo perfecto.
Muchas gracias por vuestra estancia.
Loved having Nuria & Carlos at our house! They have been great guests, very communicative and responsible.
Hope to see them again next year @ La Casa del Huerto!!!
