Lovely, clean and spacious apartment in great location. Easy walking distance to the top of La Rambla and Placa Catalunya. Supermarkets downstairs. It was quiet as apartment located in the rear of the building. Both bedrooms and the living room have air-conditioning which made a comfortable stay in summer. Wifi worked well.
Great location and lovely hosts! The apartment is close to many fun districts and the metro. Daiga is helpful and informative. There is street noise, but I think it adds to an authentic Barcelona experience as the city is lively and vibrant.
We rented the “penthouse near the sea” for 9 days, for over 200 euro per day. We got to the the apartment only to find that the elevator was out of order and we had to walk up 96 steps. Apparently that was well known to the owners,(there was someone waiting to help us with our luggage, which proves this point, as a metter of fact, the elevator has not been working for a few month) yet it was not mentioned in the description of the apartment. The elevator did not work during our entire stay. Had we known that there were 96 steps with no working elevator we wouldn't have chosen this place.
The apartment was noisy. the noise from the street continued especially at night, many bars restaurant drank people etc.
The noise was unbearable even on the fifth floor and prevented us from sleeping until we eventually bought ear plugs.
On top of these major problems there were some minor once: There was only an almost finished roll of toilet paper and non in reserve. We had to go all the way down to buy some. There was a washing machine but no washing powder.Though the apartment is stylish and newly renovated - it is poorly furnished as far as comfort is concerned. These were no bedside tables we had to put our books tissue and glass on the floor. There were no bedside lights, the electric sockets in the bed rooms were without covers. The were no electric sockets near the electric cattle and the coffee machine so in order to use them we needed to place them on the floor or on a chair. The microwave did not work.
The indignity, deceit and insult were complited when the owner, after we left, send us a message: "I would like to apologize for all the troubel you have with appartment and lift. Thatwhy, I would like to offer the wine and coffee you used." Let me remind you we paid more than 1,800 euro.
We felt we had been taken advantage of and did not get what we paid for. The apartment is not practical not comfortable, dreadful noisy and certainly not recommended.

Lovely apartment in a central location. Not as big as pictured -- one side of the house is sectioned off. It is a 1-bedroom, but Daiga set us up with sheets to make the couch into a second bed.
Daiga was not in Barcelona at my time but sent a friend to check us in. €300 deposit via credit card and €50 cleaning fee in cash were requested at check in, which I have not encountered in other listings.
This 1.5 bedroom (advertised as 2br) flat is centrally located in a secure elevator building. Although it is on a busy commercial street, it is facing a court yard as one can tell by looking at the photo taken from the small balcony.
The place was clean as expected from a host who charges premium cleaning fees.
The small kitchen was used for light meals and we could have made more use of it had it been better furnished e.g. micro, toaster,pots &. pans etc.
Water was hot enough, but we took turns using the shower since it turned cold pretty rapidly.
Paulo , who apparently represents Daiga Abel, made sincere efforts to overcome some glitches we had with using the Wi-Fi ,unfortunately we could not obtain full service from the internet provider during the week we occupied the flat.
My wife, cousin and I spent 8 nights at Daiga’s apartment. The other reviewers and pictures capture the apartment very well. We did not meet Daiga but Paulo met us at the apartment and went over everything. All communications with Daiga and meeting up with Paulo at the apartment went very smoothly. The apartment ... all we can say is that it was wonderful - beautifully decorated, comfortable and very large. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was very good. The kitchen has every gadget know to man plus a few unknown. The location is very good and we would recommend taking the time to explore around the area. There are numerous little shops and larger grocery stores within a block and even a market. We started our day with coffee and breakfast at the dining room table, and, ended our day talking in the living room relaxing on the sofa and chairs. The living room and dining area are in the same room with wall to ceiling windows which make for a bright and cheerful room especially given the colorful art work. We picked up food and wine and cava from the local stores ... there is even a wine cooler for storing your goodies at the right temperature. We relaxed over many bottles after a long days of sight seeing. You can walk to everything from this location (maybe a 40 minute walk to the harbor or 30 minute walk to Ramblas) or you can take the bus which is extremely convenient with the stop just around the corner and buses running every 8 minutes or less. We used the washer which worked as you would expect ... we did not use the dryer but rather hung our clothes up around the apartment but they dried in no time. You could open windows for fresh air which we did. The master bedroom and living room had air conditioners but not the second bedroom. We opened the windows in the bedrooms (they opened on a internal court area) which provided enough cool area but this was early April. I would guess that in the summer you would have to keep doors open if you wanted to cool down the second bedroom. We had a great stay and recommend this property.
The apartment was just perfect!! Great location, big rooms, really comfortable for a weekend of fun in Barcelona! Daiga was really helpful by email. I did not actually meet her in person as she had to leave Barcelona when I arrived but we dealt with Paolo who was great! I really recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to visit Barcelona and enjoy the nightlife.
Daiga was very helpful and was available whenever we had any questions. She provided a cot & sheets for the baby for no charge. The apartment was clean and as described. It is right in the heart of the action so make sure you are happy (email hidden)ly atmosphere. So close to shops, Metro, restaurants, bars and the lovely place Real - definitely recommend !
This is a fabulous place to stay. It's so good we felt instantly comfortable and surrounded by every conceivable gadget in the kitchen.
Great stay. We enjoyed our place and it is as close to Placa Reial as you can get. I would stay there again next time I am in Barcelona. Thanks so much Daiga
