Me gusta el sol, el mar, y los momentos de charla en buena compañia.

Beth's communication with us was great, from the time that we booked and throughout our stay. She was keen to ensure that we had the best experience possible and e.mailed us recommendations for places to eat, provided a selection of toys for our young son, and acted extremely promptly to fix the boiler one morning when we had no hot water. An excellent host.
We couldn't fault the apartment - beautifully renovated with gorgeous period features (floor tiles, stone ceilings, exposed brick walls, etc), well equipped (lovely modern kitchen), nicely furnished and in a great part of town. There are many local shops, bars, restaurants, etc, in the surrounding streets, including several supermarkets. Blai Street (which runs outside the bedroom windows) is full of great tapas and pintxos bars. This can make the apartment a little noisy, particularly on weekend nights, but we simply used earplugs (we never travel without them!) and the problem was solved.
The apartment has 3 bedrooms - one with a king-sized bed and ensuite bathroom, another single which has a bathroom across the corridor, and the third bedroom has a double sofa-bed in it. This third bedroom has a blind across the opening rather than a door.
Poble Sec is a great area in which to stay. The apartment is only 2 minutes' walk from Parallel Metro station which is on 2 Metro lines so speedy access to anywhere in the city. However, La Rambla is only about 10-15 minutes' walk away, as is Port Vell. The hill of Montjuic is just behind Poble Sec and we would regularly take the funicular railway up the hill (it goes from Parallel Metro station) and enjoy the evening sun whilst taking in the stunning city views.
All in all we had a wonderful stay in this stunning apartment. Barcelona is a fabulous city with so much to see and do, and this apartment is a great base from which to do so.
Beth a été très présente, nous avons beaucoup discuter. Nous ne l avons pas rencontré directement car elle était en vacances, mais cela ne nous a pas empêcher de communiquer durant le voyage.
Le quartier était près de la ville, avec des commerces bien utiles à proximité.
Nous avons passé d incroyables vacances, je vous recommande cette appartement pour un voyage entre amis.
Beth was welcoming and helpful while trying to navigate Barcelona. Communications with her were easy and thoughtful.
The apartment was great - as per the pictures really, and was plenty of space for our family. Full of light also - corner spot, with a balcony running throughout both sides of the flat, and with a large roof terrace. Location is also perfect and very lively - close to many shops/tapas/bars (Quimet & Quimet, one of the best tapas bars in Barcelona is 300m or so away, down the flat one can find twi great tapas bars/bars). Beth was very helpful - providing us all the advice we wanted and more.
The appartement looked exactly the same as shown on the pictures! Beth was allready before our arrival a very caring host. She asked to assist with any sightseeing and restaurant tips and could give us very good recommendations (we loved the restaurant Rosal, 34, which is just acros the street). The neighbourhood is a cultural mix, but mostly spanish and less tourists. For people that are not used to the lively city lifestyle, the appartement might be a little too noisy. For beeing so central with very good connection to the metro and even walking distances to places like harbour, old town, etc. it is definitly worth it!All of us (we have been 4 people) would definitly stay there again!!
The reservation was canceled 119 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Останавливались у Beth на отдых с 10 до 23 августа 2013 года ! Это наш первый приезд в Барселону, и могу смело сказать он не разочаровал! Все очень понравилось, потрясающая квартира всё так как на фото, расположена по мне так в самом удачном месте!. Рядом станция метро и автобусные остановки. Можно без труда добраться до любого места города. До пляжа едет автобус 36, у него конечная как раз возле дома! Очень удобно и экономит уйму времени. Beth встретила нас, показала и рассказала о всех самых интересных местах и как к ним добраться, за это ей отдельное спасибо. Бес сомнения если мы ещё раз поедим в Барсу, то остановимся именно тут. Всем рекомендую!!!
We had the best time in Beth's apartment. It's very nice, just as you would expect from the pictures and very central.
Beth was a great host, helping us solve problems during our trip (like pediatrician for the kids!).
Had 8 great days in Barcelona and in Beths beautiful apartment. Nice neighborhood with good tapas and lively spanish athmosphere. Beth was really nice and we felt welcome. The apartment was clean and very tidy when we arrived and if it was anything Beth would help us.
During July 2013 we rented the apartment for 9 days. We had a great stay and some wonderful days in Barcelona. The host Beth was really nice and helpful. She was easy to contact pre, during and after the stay.
In the following I have listed the 3 worst and 3 best things about the apartment:
3 worst things:
1. No aircon (unfortunately we realized too late that the apartment didn't have aircon. However, Beth bought us some fans.) Personally I wouldn't book an apartment without aircon during high summer in Barcelona.
2. Only suited for one couple not two. (From the pictures of the apartment it is difficult to see that one of the rooms doesn't have a door. So if you are staying two couples one of you have to sleep in a room without a door).
3. A little noisy. The Blai street just outside can be very lively during evening and night. Especially in the weekends.
3 best tings:
1. Our host Beth was really helpful and easy to communicate with.
2. Cool and local area. We found it great that the area Poble Sec was very local. We found great and cheap tapas bars just outside the street.
3. The interior of the apartment. The apartment has very beautiful floors and ceilings. It was clean, light and has a spacious kitchen and dining room.
All the best
A very nice family from Barcelona. Beth and her husband are very nice people. I have been to Barcelona many times so it was easy to talk.
TOP 5 Guest of the year 2014 !
Beth and I never got to meet because of my work schedule. But she was very communicative and sweet over email. She left the apartment in very nice condition.
Bet es una persona de confianza para mi y mi família, muy sociable, comunicativa y alegre. Estoy segura que hará todo lo posible por atender a sus huéspedes como se merece.
