My husband and I stayed for 7 nights in Feb/March in this comfy apartment which is part of a lovely, old large house. The bed was truly comfortable and cozy. Having a full kitchen was great. The weather was very cold while we were there and it took a few days for us to figure out how to get the apartment warm enough, but once we did it was nice. The fireplace is the showcase item! Parking is outside/uncovered but was always available and okay for us. We enjoyed the easy walk to the charming Greenwich Avenue's high end stores for awesome window shopping.
A couple things to consider if you are thinking of renting is that this is ground level apartment and the neighbors above are heavy footed (which matters if you are a light sleeper), also, this is an old building which lends a certain charm but also some cold air coming thru the windows. Additionally, this apartment seems to be someone's actual living quarters and it feels like you are moving into their space and with their things. I was a little surprised at first, but quickly settled into the homey-ness, comfort, and casual charm. The owners were quick to respond to any needs.
I am totally qualified to write a review as I stayed in the apartment for 2 months. First, the apartment is BEAUTIFUL! The working fireplace really makes the place cozy! The convenience to downtown shops and restaurants is wonderful, all within walking distance. Second this is a family run operation and everyone made me feel special! To say that I would stay at this incredible apartment again is an understatement.
It is a spacious apartment in an elegant, quiet, residential neighborhood. Helpful staff on sight. Nice bedrooms, quiet patio and a lot of space. If you know Mexico City well and know how to get around, this is a good place to stay. It is not close to the city center, so the air is of better quality than in other areas. The best thing about the place for us was the proximity to an excellent restaurant called Caballo Bayo. I highly recommend it. There is a small supermarket about 10 min away but we couldn't locate any other places to shop or to eat. The kitchen has some basic equipments. OOwners were not on sight but responded through staff. Godd place to stay if you're looking for a quiet hideaway.
This was special. The location of the flat is excellent and in the heart of the city. We were close to many restaurants, Gaudi buildings, gourmet shop of meats and cheeses and local markets. Roberta is an excellent host and welcome her guests Very comfortable- A home away from home.

We did walk everywhere (almost). The location can't be beat. Close to great restaurants, Las Rambles, Gaudi houses, etc. We took the aerobus from the airport and it was just a short walk to the apartment.
Robis's apartment is beautiful and quite comfortable.
The location is perfect as it is in the middle of everything. Just as described we could take a train for any part of the city within walking distance as well as for the airport.
In terms of comfort the apartment has everything what you need. Internet wifi works like a charm. Hot water works absolutely fine for the shower!!!
The small terrace overlooks the street and at night we could enjoy our wine and enjoy the street view. There are couple of cafes which opens up at 6'ish in the morning and you can literally step outside to have your morning cup of coffee.
Overall our experience was great.
Also thanks for the cookies!
Very nice and perfectly located apartment. Roberta is a wonderful host, she was always in touch and ready to help. We felt like we stayed in an old friend's apartment.
Roberta's flat was fabulous. The location is central to all ther great attractions of Barcelona. Roberta was extremely helpful in haring with us the great attractions of her city. Further, she was very accommodating particularly since we were so late in our arrival, and she made special arrangements to assure we were well received and taken care of. I would highly recommend this flat with Robera on your next visit to Barcelona.
Roberta’s place on Carrer de la Diputació was great! I organised a vacation for my parents (a couple in their 50’s) and had them stay with Roberta. They found the flat clean and ready and looking as per the photographs. It was ideally located and they walked everywhere; up to the Sagrada Familia and down to the sea. They said it was the ideal base for their first visit and experience of Barcelona. Thank you for welcoming my mum and dad to your city Roberta, I appreciate it.
Robis is a great host, very kind and generous with her information and time. She had cava and cookies waiting for us when we arrived - so sweet - and was helpful with everything from where to go to how to get back to the airport. Her place is spacious and comfortable and also centrally located. We recommend it!
Roberta & Roxanne are great guests and I recommend them to all.
Roberta is a great host to her house, as a friend I have stayed several times at her flat in Barcelona and totally love it, the location and proximity to all the attractions around the city. She always have good recommendations for places to have great dinner, or have a good time. Really recommend her flat and orientation to the city. Great host, great friend!
