Sandra a été d'un excellent accueil. Nous avons échangé par mail avant notre arrivée, puis elle nous a tout expliqué en anglais à notre arrivée dans son appartement.
Sandra and Lluis’s apartment is a conveniently-located, comfortable and spacious apartment for 2 people. It is very well planned with a lot of storage space, and has everything you need: linens, towels, shampoo, toilet paper, a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and all necessary kitchenware. It’s also very clean.
The apartment is full of light during the daytime from its two parallel windows, one of which leads to an open balcony (equipped with a table and four chairs), with beautiful views of most of Barcelona.
Apart from the double bed, there is a sofa, a long desk with two chairs and a large dining table in the kitchen with another two chairs.
The Wi-Fi worked perfectly. There’s great hot water in the shower. There’s even a washing machine combined with a dryer.
Sandra met us for the check-in. She is very nice. She explained in great detail everything we needed to know about the apartment. I must also say that communication with Sandra and Lluis prior to our stay was very good.
Note that in order to reach the apartment after entering the building, you need to go up 8 floors in a small (but safe and efficient) elevator, and then there are a few steps to the apartment (it’s on the 9th floor).
The apartment has many shops, restaurants and supermarkets close-by, and it is located in a safe, central area, adjacent to the metro station. It’s a 10-15 minute walk to the Rambla.
In short, the apartment is highly recommended for couples visiting Barcelona.
We stayed at Sandra's apartment for four nights. Sandra could not meet us in person while checking in since we got a bit late on the day but she had her friend Alexis help us with the check-in.
The apartment is extremely charming and offers stunning views of Barcelona (you can see Sagrada Familia, the old cathedral, the Columbus monument, Montjuic as well as views of the Mediterranean Sea from the flat). The location is excellent ;2-3 min walk to the nearest metro station (las ramblas is approx 15 mins if you choose to walk, you'll get there sooner by metro though), plenty of eating options and supermarkets in the neighbourhood. The flat has all the amenities as described on Airbnb- all appliances that you might need in the kitchen, washing machine and dryer, air conditioning and heating etc.
The building is a bit old and has a very small elevator (very difficult for 2 people with bags to fit in). We took some time getting used to the door locks (it gets a bit jammed).
But all in all its a fabulous place to stay if you're travelling to Barcelona.
We loved it! Best view, nice interior, very clean. And authentic! Good neighboorhood, close to everything. Thank you so much!!
Das Apartment ist sehr klein, hat aber alles was man benötigt. Wir hielten uns eigentlich nur zum Schlafen in der Wohnung auf. Aufgrund, dass das Apartment im letzten Stock ist, wo sich auch das Getriebe vom Aufzug des Hauses aufhält, ist die Geräuschkulisse hoch.
Preis Leistung stimmt trotzdem.
Sandra hat uns alles super erklärt und auch der Check-in sowie Check-out verlief reibungslos.
Unfortunately, Sandra and Lluis were not available to meet us but they arranged a friend called Marta to meet us and show us the apartment. Marta was friendly and helpful and showed us the amenities of the apartment. The apartment was very clean and tidy exactly like it was advertised. The area was a metro ride or a 15min walk away from the tourist area of Barcelona. It was nice to be away from the hustle, as long as you don't mind walking or catching the metro. There were supermarkets close to the apartment as well as restaurants, it was easy and convinient. Enjoyed our stay, would recommend to others.
Sandra was a great host, welcoming us to the apartment when we arrived at 10pm - she gave us a great introduction and the apartment was well equipped with maps and guides and even umbrellas, a sewing kit and all kinds of little added extras that could have been useful.
The location is amazing, the views cannot be underestimated - we loved waking up to such a rousing sight each morning. Sadly we were only in Barcelona for four nights, so we didn't get to spend much time actually in the apartment - but we enjoyed going for a stroll down Av. Paral-lel after midnight and down to the marina. The metro station is literally right outside, as is the bus stop for the D20 which we found useful for getting to the Zoo in the east of the city, and Camp Nou in the west.
The apartment was clean, comfortable and absolutely perfectly located.
We will definitely be back to Barcelona, and we would love nothing more than to stay at this cozy apartment again.
Sandra was a lovely, friendly host and provided lots of useful information about the area/shops etc. The apartment itself was beautiful, with a stunning view of Barcelona; great for a couple as it was very cosy. There was a Balcony and barbecue that we would have loved to have used had it been summer- we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! Thank you so much Sandra and Lluis!
Impesionantes vistas desde el ático, equipado con todo lo que puedas necesitar. Sandra fue muy agradable, haciendo de nuestra estancia una experiencia muy positiva. Estuvimos muy cómodos en su casa. Muy Recomendable. Gracias.
Studio très bien situé,très bien équipé,très fonctionnel et superbe vue !
La communication avec Sandra est idéale,réactive et très bien organisée.Sandra est très arrangeante,c'est une hôte sympa qui vous donne toutes les informations dont vous avez besoin.
le seul petit bémol c'est que le chauffage vient d'une climatisation réversible et que c'est un peu bruyant mais comme il fait toujours beau à Barcelone ...!
Sandra and Luis looked after our house and treated it with respect. I would definitely rent to them again.
Two lovely couples that where a pleasure to host
Quel bonheur de profiter de Barcelone dans ces condition ,un apartement trés confortafle avec une vue magnifique et trés bien situé .On recommencera encore et encore .
Merci pour l'acceuil .
Lluis' place is my favorite 'observatory refuge' in Barcelona. It has all the positive points you might look for:
its location is absolutely great, very close to the city centre, but not too noisy;
it is cozy but very well organized and has good storage space;
it is extremely clean (Lluis has always being a cleaning-maniac);
it is very bright and well ventilated;
it has lift (something that in Barcelona is not always the case, especially in the city centre);
and the most important thing.... it has the most amazing views of the city!
When I was there I've used to spend a lot of time looking at the city beneath me and observing people passing by. The privileged views are the reason why I call it my observatory refuge, because there I feel like I'm in a very comfortable and peaceful place, but at the same time I can see the whole city and the lives of its inhabitants.
Lluis' flat is well worth a visit, it's a gem!
I stayed at Lluis' place in January 2013 and all I can say is that it is an absolute gem in Barcelona. The views, the location (easy to get anywhere in the city), the terrace (in the sun), the atmosphere and the neighbours (it even has a bath-tub, which is not so common in this city, in my experience!). If you are visiting Barcelona, coming back to this place really lets you relax and feel good after being out and about. Absolutely marvelous!
I would like to recommend Luis house to any person that will like to stay in Barcelona close to the city center.
The apartment is next to two metro lines and has a magnificent view of Barcelona and a lovely terrace.
The apartment is fully equipped and is wonderful place to stay and relax within Barcelona center.
