Patricia is a sunny bubbly amazing person with an apartment equally as great! Its central to all the tapas bars, shopping, pharmacies, supermarkets, and only a short bus ride down to Barceloneta beach. Her place is very clean and felt like a hotel!!! Will definitely stay again - much love! XoXo
Patricia was very nice and helpful and had no problem letting us check in a little bit early which was nice. She was easy to get a hold of if necessary and was quick to reply emails.
The apartment is just like the pictures and is very nice. They do have a construction site in the building and I had a hard time sleeping because they were just outside my window and the staircase was very dusty due to the construction.
The rooftop pool was perfect for taking naps in the sun after a hectic day at the beach.
The location of the apartment is outstanding! We could walk everywhere and if we needed to take a taxi it was only 5-10 euros. You have all the desired stores to shop in just around the corner.
I stayed in the apartment for one week. The kitchen is very basically equipped (more like a hotel suite kitchen) missing some basic things like a large bowl or a dish rack. It would be nice to have some basic food items on hand as well (as another reviewer noted also) such as cooking oil, salt and pepper.
Secondly, the bed didn´t have a fitted sheet. You have to sleep with only the comforter on top since the normal sheet is used to wrap the mattress with. This is definitely not acceptable for an apartment this price and is not hygienic. I couldn´t recommend this place mainly for this reason. The bathroom too didn´t have soap holder or any sort of place to put your toiletries except the floor.
Lastly, noise is an issue in this apartment. A double pained window or some thicker curtains would definitely help reduce the noise by quite a bit.
That said, the good things about the apartment are: 1) it´s location 2) it has strong working wifi and 3) it has an elevator for getting you suitcases up.
Also, important to note, is that there is no check-in / check-out policy on the listing page (hopefully this will be corrected soon). Had I know that the owner was going to leave the keys for me almost 2 km away from the apartment because I had a flight that arrived at night I wouldn´t have rented it. Also on check-out day she wants you out by 11 a.m.
Patricia was a great host. She informed us a few days prior that this apartment that we had initially reserved was having a drainage issue with the shower, so she put us in a different apartment down the block, which was also nice and had a pool on the roof. We didn't use the pool, but the apartment was in a great location with a nearby convenience store, and close to the metro which made it easy to get anywhere. It was also very close to Plaza Catalunya, which made getting from the airport to the apartment by way of the easy aerobus very simple and cheap.
Patricia met us at the apartment as soon as we arrived, and was helpful in pointing out good spots to see, restaurants, and shops for a few things we needed. The bedroom did not get much sunlight, as the windows are in the courtyard, but the rest of the apartment was sunny and clean, and the air conditioning kept the place wonderfully cool.
We had a lovely time, amazing place and location off the Gran Via and very very close to everything,which couldn't be better. The apartment was clean, modern with good air conditioning and a cute little balcony, but you must be aware that to have this great location it can be a bit noisy during the weekend nights (this was not a problem for us).
Patrica was very warm and welcoming and gave us great advice and tips on where to go. We would have no problem recommending this apartment and Patricia to our friends traveling to Barcelona and would be delighted to stay there again. Barcelona is an amazing city, so much to do, see and eat :-)
The apartment is in a very central location. So central that in the four days we were there, we never caught any public transport and walked everywhere instead. A number of people have commented on how loud the apartment is. It is a city apartment on a main road. We didn't feel it was exceptionally loud given the location, but if you are a light sleeper, just pack some ear plugs and you will be fine. We didn't have any issues with the noise. It is worth noting that the bathroom is an ensuite, so if you are travelling with friends, you may want to consider this! We all became good friends during our stay sharing the bathroom! Nicely furnished, everything you should need for a short stay and just around the corner from a great supermarket.
The apartment is centrally located, Patricia was very friendly and helpful and we had a lovely stay. The rooftop pool was a particular treat, with a stunning view over Barcelona. The apartment had everything that we needed, and I would definitely recommend staying here.
This was Awesome!
Great clean place with an AC that will keep you nice and cool. The roof top swimming pool was fantastic. I'd geuss its about 25m long. Location you cant get any better.... dead in the centre. Next to Pl. Cat.
Patricia organized everything in a great professional manner.
Thank you and untill next time!
The space is very clean, modern, and conveniently located about 2 blocks from Placa de Cataluyna where there is an aerobus stop. We did not meet with Patricia, but she was responsive in all communication and her colleague who checked us in was very nice. We stayed in 3A and the street noise was pretty consistent because the windows are not well insulated, but they offer a view. Don't know if an inner apartment would be different. The restaurant recommendations Patricia left were helpful. Overall a nice stay and a good host.
Patricia was an excellent hostess. We did not meet personally as she was on holiday, but she provided clear instructions on where to pick up the keys to the flat, which was easy to do. The apartment is situated in an excellent location, close to public transit and major sites. The A/C is nice to have. The bathroom is well stocked with towels. She provides a juicer and coffee machine to use. As in previous reviews, there is some street noise, but this was never a problem for us. It would have been nice to have more glassware, plates and a few basic cooking supplies (salt, pepper, oil) as she does provide pans and pots to cook with. I highly recommend Patricia's flat and think it is an excellent way to experience Barcelona.
Friendly people. Nice to meet them!
Don't hesitate inviting Patricia into your home, she and her friends have been good guests :)
