I was immediately impressed by the size, much bigger than expected. Very comfortable for a family or 4(could probably accommodate as many as 6). All amenities were as described and worked very well(appliances, wifi, bathroom shower, etc.). Rooftop patio was an added bonus. The location is removed enough from the noise and hassles of the heart of tourist area but is no more than 5-10 minute walk to most any attractions in the city. Owner was easy to deal and accessible when needed for questions and info. Very enjoyable.
The apartment is close to a metro station and near Sagrada Familia.
It is very simple, not as luxurious as the fotos might promise and laundry facilities are not in the apartment but up on the terrace.
The sleeping rooms are very small and dark and smell a bit. There is no double bed in the apartment but 4 single beds.
You cannot close the door to the street side terrace from the outside, which means that its not recommended to smoke at this terrace since the smoke would go to the living room!
The kitchen is equipped very poorly! Only a few dishes, very crappy pans, only 2 cooking plates and no baking oven. It is not suitable to cook a full meal. Also the fridge would have needed some defrosting of the freezing compartment. The power plug for the toaster was damaged and very insecure.
The kitchen wall to the shower was wet because of the bad sealing of the shower! There is also a power plug in this wet area - quite dangerous!
I got the impression, that the apartment is quite overpriced and not very well taken care of.
The apartment is excellently located with ease of connectivity by Metro
The apartment is well maintained and has all that a modern day traveller needs to make her/his stay comfortable and enjoyable
Apartment was very near Metro, also within walking distance if we like walking
Very near Sagrada Familia. The apartment was very comfortable, washing facilities are not in apartment but up on terrace.
As described, this is a nice apartment building! Location to La Sagrada (3 blocks) & the heart of L'Eixample (6 blocks) and a key subway (Metro) station on beautiful Passeig Sant Joan also only 3 blocks away. Also both of the popular sightseeing bus lines have stops nearby (ten minutes walk.)
Building is seven stories, only 2 apartments per floor. Great little elevator! Stayed in apt.#2 which is on interior side of these identical 'blocks' - nice and quiet side, no traffic noise at all! Great view east towards La Sagrada and south to sea.
Rooftop terrace is as shown, but locked shut at 10:00pm. Location of washer and dryer. Nice seating.
Nearby are a few supermarkets, best is Consum (one block east) with everything you'd need to have for your stay. Wine, groceries etc.
Apartment was fully furnished. Might need a few more cups or glasses, but enough for a couple. Great refurbished kitchen and bath (IKEAs finest).
Connection with Ariadne was really good, helpful in offering after hours keys as we arrived well past 9:00p.m. Onsite property supt Javier was also really friendly and available.
We had a great time staying in this perfectly located apartment with awesome balcony with view! It was close to everything and worked great for our travel stop. The wifi was broken in the room, but there was a cafe down stairs that we could use if needed. Would definitely rent again!
Lovely clean, bright apartment close to the metro and Gaudi's Sagrada Familia. Great communication from Ariadna and Núria. The apartment comfortably housed 5 of us with loads of space for a week. Recommended A++
