“The Perfect Barcelona Apartment”
Reviewed 30 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

people found this review helpful

This was our 3rd trip to Barcelona and this time we were fortunate enough to stay 10 days in this wonderful loft apartment. The owner was extremely easy to work with and accommodating to any of our questions. I felt he went above and beyond to make our experience flawless.
This apartment felt like our home away from home and is located in the heart of the city. Not only is it beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable, it's evident when you walk thru the door that the owner is an architect. There's so much attention to detail! This place has everything you need to make your stay perfect.
The location is an easy walk to the more touristy destinations, but if you stay in the neighborhood there are a multitude of restaurants, shopping, markets, etc.. We actually preferred staying in the neighborhood as we felt it was a more authentic Barcelona experience. We loved the nearby restaurants including Bar But, Hule and La Pepita, but the kitchen was so fabulous we also had a great time staying home and cooking! At the end of the street is a great square where our kids joined the local kids in a few games of futbol while we got to enjoy a great meal at the numerous restaurant patios watching them play.
If you like amazing cocktails don't miss Old Fashioned or Bloody Marys, both located on the same street as the apartment! For a great selection of wine the owner of Bodega Boavista will help you out and it's right around the corner.
I'm already missing this place and I just got home! I cannot wait to go back and visit again. Thanks for making our experience one we will never forget.

“Great location - walking distance to all the major attractions.”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Comfortable spacious apartment with modern furnishings in a quiet location, yet very central. There was a bit of confusion as to which metro stop was closest to the apartment. Clearer arrival directions would be great.
Overall a fantastic stay, with a very knowledgeable host Paul, who met us to hand over keys.

“Great location and comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016
3
people found this review helpful

Our party comprised of myself and wife, plus two children aged 10 and 14.

This was our second stay in Barcelona; we stayed in late October 2016, for seven days.

We took Alejandro's offer to organise Taxi transfers to and from the airport - this worked well and was hassle free. The taxi driver was there to meet us from the arrivals gate, and was prompt when collecting us when heading back to the airport later in week.

Alejandro (accommodation agent) was helpful and easily contactable when we had a small problem with the WC - was quickly fixed !

The accommodation was very comfortable and stylish - there was plenty of space for four of us - it was a pleasure heading back there at the end of the day. The apartment is dual aspect (double glazed) so we could have the doors and windows open, and enjoy the breeze/fresh air. You can hear the bustle of people and the odd car passing by, but this is very much part of any Spanish apartment experience. Evening times ....again, you will hear noise, but this was never overly intrusive (quite enjoyable really!). Small (very!) but usable balcony area.

The apartment was well equipped with everything you may need (not that we ate in that much) i.e toaster, hair dryer, microwave, cutlery, dishwasher etc etc.

There is reliable and fast WiFi. There is a TV with local Spanish stations on offer - several DVDs available - a few books to look though including some Barcelona guide books.

The location of the apartment is excellent; literally just a few mins walk from the main Barcelona city centre stretch (top of town). Metro 8min walk? Having said this, the apartment is located in a side street, only a 90 second walk from a sub-community, with square (restaurants and shops/cafe), with side streets leading off (more small shops and eateries). Really great 'locals' market also, just a few mins walk away too. The location really is excellent. Not ideal if you want to access the beach, as its the other end of town from the seafront (if thats important to you?).

The main double bed is very low, and very firm, but not uncomfortable. There are two single beds, again, low and firm. I believe most items in the apartment are 'Ikea'. If I were being critical, the beds were over firm, and we would have benefited from eat least another 4 pillows !

The apartment is all open plan, so if you visit, everyone in the party must be fairly familiar with each other; you could certainly hear others snoring in other parts of the apartment! There are partitions, separating areas, but these partitions don't extend to the vaulted ceilings.

The apartment has two air con units, mounted high - we had the bedroom one on for just an hour or two one day, and its was silent in operation and effective.

Things to bear in mind:

- The apartment is on the third floor, with no lift, narrow staircase. I would not imagine this apartment would be suitable for someone with a significant physical disability.

- Alejandro recommended we did not drink the tap water (high levels of calcium?). This was a little problematic as we arrived and did not have anything to drink (so had to go straight out and buy some). Maybe some could be provided by the agent, just to get you started on arrival?

Overall an excellent apartment - brilliant location - well equipped. Everything you need right on your doorstep. Alejandro was very helpful, with good communication before and during the stay easy to contact.

We would definitely consider staying here again on a return trip to Barcelona :)

“Beautiful Loft Great Location”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

PROS: Alejandro is a very responsive host and totally professional. He loves this apartment, it was where he lived with his wife and kids until they outgrew it. He's an architect and did all the design work, and so his pride in his place is very evident. It's in one of the most charming parts of Barcelona, Gracia, which has many small pedestrian streets. There are terrific small shops close by, restaurants, cafe's, all off the tourist track. If you're into organic or natural food, there were at least two natural food shops within several blocks, plus what I believe was a natural grass fed meat market. It's location can't be beat, close to the metro and walkable to the Gothic Quarter and Sagrada Familia. The kitchen is fabulous and the fridge is large. I felt very happy being in the apartment, turning the corners and seeing the beautiful exposed beams and stone.
CONS: It's a three story walk up, no lift, so if that's an issue, this won't work. There is a fair amount of street noise into the wee hours of the morning, lots of young people leaving bars and even talking in "normal" voices, the narrow streets just amplify everything. Plus for some reason, garbage collection is at 12:30 pm directly below the windows. Some nights it didn't bother me and some nights it did. I brought earplugs and a white noise machine which I would definitely recommend. Or close the windows and turn on the air conditioning.

All in all, the neighborhood is great, the apartment is terrific, the noise can be insane at times at night, but if you can handle that, go for it!

Hi Laura thank you so much for your nice review. This is a quiet area but we are in Spain, so even in this pedestrian street you will be "disturbed" if you sleep with the windows opened !
Best regards.

“Amazing Loft”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Amazing Loft. The location is excellent very close to the inner city and within walking distance of the main shopping and eateries.Also within 15 minutes of the main tourist area.
There are many small bars and eateries in the street and ajacent lanes plus a large square just 80 meters further up the lane with a range of outdoor eateries.

Apartment is well appointed with everything available.
Thanks

Location just off Passeig de Gracia allowed us to walk to La Pedrera, Ramblas, even Barcelona cathedral and Sagrada Famillia and all four of us are 66 years old. Many cafes, bars, grocery stores very close. Metro one block away. Well-equipped loft with modern kitchen plus a small balcony to view the side street. Owner Alejandro arranged a taxi for us to the airport plus a driver who carried all our heavy luggage. Much more enjoyable and economical than a hotel.
