Lived in apartments at José from July 30 to August 4. The apartment very much was pleasant, there is all necessary for comfortable accommodation, some minutes to the subway and the cathedral Sangrada-Familiya. We will be glad to arrive again.
We have had a very nice stay in the terrasse apartment. It was surprisingly close to Ssgrada Familia which gave a great view from the terrasse. The apartment and neighbourhood are very nice and the owner very helpful and easy to reach.
Josè è stato molto disponibile ad aspettarci fino a notte fonda, causa ritardo del volo. L'appartamento rispecchiava le informazioni proposte dal sito. Situato in un quartiere strategico facilmente raggiungibile con ogni mezzo pubblico ed a piedi in 20/30 minuti si arriva sulle Ramblas ed in pieno centro. Abbiamo trovato l'appartamento pulito ed attrezzato di tutti i confort. Nonostante la zona sia molto trafficata, l'appartamento, molto luminoso, trovandosi all'interno risulta tranquillo e silenzioso. Bella vacanza, consigliamo sicuramente l'appartamento!
José was very quick to reply and supply all necessary information. He was happy to meet us at night to hand over the keys and kept in touch promptly throughout our initial booking and during our stay.
The location of the apartment is ideal: I usually prefer to stay a little out of the hustle and bustle, yet it was not too far away to get central; a leisurely walk into the city was highly enjoyable and very do-able. Sagrada Familia was only a few blocks away and I loved the terrace view and hearing the church bells each day - open space to unwind and soak the rays can only be a plus!
Can't beat the proximity to not only Sagrada familia but tube stations and shops/amenities. The area is safe and there is movement throughout the day/night.
The building itself is lovely, with an internal open area for all the floors and a comfortable lift.
My only negative comments would be regarding the fridge which smelt bad and dissuaded us from opening/using it. This did not affect us too much as we were mostly out and about but if you are keen to cook or stay in you may find it much more uncomfortable than we did.
The terrace had sun all day long and the neighbours were very respectful. All in all a pleasurable and comfortable stay for us 3.
Pasamos tres dias en Barcelona. Estuvimos comodos en el apartamento, Jose muy amable indicandonos muchos detalles de utilidad. El entorno es inmejorable, muy elegante y lleno de negocios. Los vidrios de las ventanas lo hacen muy silencioso y se descansa bien.
It all depends on your priorities - the ideal living conditions or a perfect location. I would like both. Unfortunately the photos do not quite match reality. But the location of the apartment is really ideal.
Nous avons été très bien reçus par José, malgré l'heure matinale de notre arrivée. Nous avons apprécié l'attention qu'il a eue de nous accueillir dès notre arrivée alors que nous proposions de différer notre entrée de quelques heures pour lui éviter un réveil matinal. Nous avons également apprécié le café chaud à notre arrivée. L'appartement était propre, pratique. José avait pris la peine de nous préparer une liste personnalisée des commerces à proximité avec plusieurs critères de choix. Nous avons apprécié sa simplicité, son pragmatisme et sa fiabilité.
Jose's apartment is perfect. The location is ideal, as you can walk or take public transportation anywhere. Even at 4:45AM I could walk out to the corner to catch my early cab to the airport. The taxi stand is a one-minute walk! The apartment itself is comfortable, clean and quiet (it's on the 4th floor, with elevator!). And Jose is a great host. He was flexible dealing with my changing flight arrival, and when we met at the apartment, he had a list of recommendations all printed up and ready for me. I definitely recommend Jose's apartment. Gracias Jose!
Once again, we based our selection on the reviews we read. Just as other reviewers mentioned, the apartment was great and exactly what we expected and Jose and his son gave us a gracious welcome. The communication was flawless- Jose speaks Spanish, English and French - so it was perfect for us! He was responsive and thorough. He even scoped out a parking garage in front of the apartment and seemed to have gotten us a discount on parking for 48 hours.
And what a welcome! We arrived late but had been in contact with Jose. When we were looking for the parking garage, there was Jose waiting out in front, flagging us down. He helped us carry our bags into the building and then his son was waiting for us in the apartment. He gave us a small tour of the place and gave us information regarding maps and sights to see. And there was fruit on the table and juice and water in the fridge (which I hope we correctly assumed was for us!).
The apartment was perfectly located for us. We wanted to walk everywhere but did not want the noise at night.
Great apartment, great location and great owners! We hope to stay there again some day!
Jose's apartment was in a great location and he was very helpful from start to finish. Staying in his apartment started our Spain trip of on a good foot.
Conozco a José , hace muchos años , es muy buena persona, amable ,educado y detallista,
Le gusta que que sus huéspedes se sientan cómodos en casa .
Jose es una excelente persona, muy amable , de fácil trato y siempre deseando que estes a gusto. Cualquier cosa en la que pueda ayudarte, está encantado de hacerlo, además de que su background como promotor en el mundo del entertainment hace que se conozca la ciudad a fondo y te ayudará a saber que espectáculos ver, donde comer o donde salir. Su apartamento , al igual que él, son un excelente ejemplo cuidado y pulcritud asi que, no solo la ubicacion y distribución es perfecta, además los detalles no faltan. Lo recomiendo como mejor elección para visitar Barcelona!
