Un accueil particulièrement chaleureux.
Raoul est un hôte attentif, gentil et se met à votre disposition pour vous apporter tous les renseignements que vous souhaitez.
L'appartement est vraiment sympa et original avec une super terrasse.
Il est bien décoré et bénéficie d'un très grand confort.
On se sent comme chez soi.
Le logement est situé dans un quartier proche de tous les centres touristiques et de la plage.
Les bars et restaurants aux alentours sont supers et excellents.
Je recommande vivement ce logement.
Si je devais revenir à Barcelone, je reviendrais dans cet appartement sans hésiter.
Séjour très agréable en famille avec nos deux enfants, superbe appartement atypique fidèle aux photos et idéalement situé, accueil des hôtes très chaleureux. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié cette magnifique terrasse ainsi que tous les équipements de "la tour de l'amour".
Un plus pour la décoration surprenante...
Ps : la montée vous amène au paradis.
Raul and Federico were great hosts! They were very friendly and gave us some tips about nearby places to eat. The neighborhood where the apartment is located was perfect- there was so much to do within a short walk. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated. The terrace was beautiful as well. We would definitely stay here again if we make another trip to Barcelona!
We have chosen this apartment because of its intrinsic and quirky look and we were super impressed. The flat is just stunning and even better in reality. Staying there was a real experience - the building has true character with a roman feel with a contemporary yet traditional design. It was a great pleasure to spend time in the apartment! When we arrived in the evening Raul met us at the Santa Catarina market and took us to the apartment which is a 5 min walk. Located in the Ciutat Vella it is close to all local amenities and close to all of the touristic attractions.
We really wanted to experience the life in Barcelona rather than just be tourists and we did, the locals were really friendly and hospitable. We prefered to go to the quirky cafes, have traditional tapas in the market and visit the local shops and kept away from the touristy places by choice.
Raul and Fede were amazing hosts - they gave us suggestions of places to go and eat and things to do. We also went to their galleries where we've seen their amazing creations!
Would highly recommend the whole experience and we definitely want to stay again in the future if possible.
When we arrived we met Raul at the nearby market. He walked us to the apartment which was in a fabulous location. On the way we strolled down a small street where his art gallery was located and he introduced us to his neighbors. They all knew each other and it was encouraging to see they all looked out after each other.
The apartment was in an ideal location. I will repeat what the other reviewers have said: the stairs were the only struggle with this apt, but even so, they were quite charming. Narrow and difficult but authenticated the age of the place.
The apartment is obviously owned by an artist- there were collections from travels all over the world. Simple and elegant. Also, the arrangement was nice-bedroom/bath on bottom floor with lots of storage. Second floor living space with beds. Third floor kitchen and bath. This is where we stayed. The weather was perfect and we opened the wall up to enjoy the view of Tibidabo.
Thank you for a lovely visit!
A great stay at Rau'l tower. the triplex with the terrace is perfectly located to enjoy Barcelona by foot. The apartment in itself is unique and tastefully decorated by Raul who is a very talented artist. Make sure to pass by his art gallery only a few streets away !
Muchas Gracias Raul and Federico! We really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and safely got back to Germany. All was excellent! Nothing to complain about... I would highly recommend this place ....
Raul was an incredible host. He met us on arrival and told us everything about the area and what to do and see.
The apartment was amazing. Clean, well decorated and spacious, it was perfect for our city break and the terrace was great.
I would highly recommend both Raul and the place to anyone.
My Girlfriend and I both loved our stay in Raul's apartment. All prior communication was excellent, and we were met on the day, as arranged at a location near to the apartment.
The apartment itself is lovely. It's arranged over three floors, with the bedroom at the bottom, the kitchen/roof top terrace at the top and the living room in between. The apartment is up several flights of narrow steps, and this should be taken into consideration if you have any mobility issues, but the stairs proved to be no problem for us. It is Raul's home, and as such is very comfortable. You could get lost in the sofa in the living room, and the bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and offers great views over the roof tops of Barcelona, and the terrace is a little Oasis after a day spent sightseeing.
Having visited Barcelona on several occasions, La Ribera is my favouriite area of the city, particularly around El Born, and this apartment could not be better located. It's equally minutes walk from Jaume metro, Parc De La Ciutadell and Passeig Del Born, great for bars and restaurants.
This is a great place to stay, and I will try to book again, on my next visit to Barcelona.
The location of the aprtment is great: you have all you need nearby! Grocery shops nearby are open until late 11pm, metro is not too far and of course all the benefits of the center of Barcelona in terms of bar and monuments.
The apartment is located on the 4th, 5th and 6th floor (triplex) and the building has no elevator. It is a steep and narrow staircases that you need to climb with you suitcase. The apartment is as nice as it is on the picture: lots of light, great terrace and all the details that make you feel at home.
Raul is a great host, very flexible and reactive. We defiitively recommend to people that are not concerns by the stairs and we would be happy to stay again.
