Clean, large and well-thought-out apartment on the 3rd floor of a turn-of-the-century building in the heart of Barcelona. High ceilings and a lot of architectural details. 3 bedrooms with comfortable beds, 1 master bath and another full bath in the hall. Kitchen has an oven, microwave and fridge. Unit also has a washer and dryer. There is also a sitting area in the back of the apartment with full windows, but not much of a view. It does however keep the bedrooms quiet since you are away from the street noise.
The only negative would be the antique elevator (probably from 1910). While picturesque, it really only holds two people (without luggage). The 4 of us were like sardines trying to get into and out of it. Took stairs most of the time - not that bad.
There are plenty of restaurants, shops and markets nearby and it is only 1 block from the high-end shopping district. Check-in and check-out were a breeze and the owners were very good at responding to requests quickly and passed along recommendations for local sites and restaurants. We also used the van service they recommended to bring us to and from the airport and were picked up in a really nice Mercedes van with limo seating. I would stay there again next time we were in Barcelona.
We really wanted to feel like we lived there and not like a tourist! Perfect location and charming apartment made our trip so enjoyable. The market was a couple of blocks down and was perfect for a morning stroll to get eggs and coffee. The location made getting to all attractions super easy. One block off Passeig de Gracia was awesome for walking to Placa Catalunya, easy walk to Familia Sagrada and so much more.
I would go for a jog in the morning and felt really safe and enjoyed the sights along the way. Check-in was easy and exactly as we were informed, very professional.
We will be back, thanks Evelyn
We had a wonderful stay at this apartment which is in a great location for exploring the beautiful Barcelona. Check in worked as promised and help with the transfer from the airport was seemless.
A great place to begin our family’s trip through Spain. Quick communication from the owner, who also provided links to an airport pick up service which worked well.
Great position in a quiet, upmarket area.
There are many important things about this apartment, location is only one. The others-the air conditioning is excellent. The apartment is on the back of the building so no traffic noise. The water pressure and hot water is great in both bathrooms. Chrckin was easy, we used there pick up service from airport. Finally the landlord is resonsive to any need.
Lovely apartment, bright, lovely sun terrace, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. Enjoy :-)
