STUNNING!!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had been to Barcelona twice before, staying in the Sants and Gracia districts. While we loved the "feel" of Gracia we both agreed that this apartment, with its stunning views of the Sagrada Familia, was the best we'd stayed in. This time we travelled with our 15 year old son who claimed he would love to live there permanently - his own little modern "bachelor pad". The roof terrace was stunning and we even managed to have breakfast outside a couple of times, a big bonus considering it was late October!

The apt provided everything stated and more. For example, we were greeted to a welcome pack containing Wine, Milk, Water, Cake and orange juice. If needed, beach towels were provided as was a flat screen TV, DVD's, CD's, cards and games which may have come in handy had the weather been bad.

Prior to leaving the UK, we were contacted by the agency who advised that the owner of the building had changed the lock on the main front door. They provided us with a contact name and telephone number. Catherine met us at the front of the building to hand over the new key - proving excellent customer service as, unbeknown to us, we'd arrived before the offical arrival time of 3pm.

Central to many sites and famous streets, there were many bars, bakeries, eateries in the location as well as a market selling fresh produce. Although busy and lively, once up on the 7th floor (lift provided!) we felt that we were in our own little Barcelonian paradise!!!

We all agreed that we would have no qualms about returning to Barcelona (again!) and would gladly stay in this lovely, clean, well maintained and spacious apartment!!!

Great apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My wife, teenage son and I had a great vacation in Barcelona and this apartment was one of the reasons. It is absolutely as advertised. The terrace both increases the usable space, and makes the interior seem larger. It was very comfortable in a totally Ikea way. Everything worked perfectly and the instructions were clear. It was immaculately clean. The location is in the middle of the city, convenient to everything without being overly congested or noisy. It is surrounded by everything you need for daily life like a resident, without the tourist side of things. That's just a short walk or metro ride.

The downsides are few. It is located in a leafy residential area, so if you're interested in dancing til dawn it's a taxi ride away. Same with the beach. The kitchen is more of a kitchenette, with only two burners, a microwave, and a small fridge. It's great for wine, snacks and breakfast but you may be hard pressed to roast a leg of lamb. It worked fine for our purposes. And lastly, the second bedroom is very small. There isn't enough room to walk between the two beds. As there were only 3 of us, it wasn't a problem, but if you're sharing you should know the other person pretty well. As I said before, it was perfect for us and I highly recommend it.

lovely apartment, ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment in an ideal location for exploring. Only having 4 days in Barcelona we made sure we made the most of our time so the terrace was ideal to chill out on when we returned. Would definitely book again. Maybe the Amsterdam apartment or Branscombe chalet.

Perfect pied-a-tier in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful roof-top apartment is the perfect place for a stay in Barcelona! The apartment is well-equipped and has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and the view of the Sagrada Familia is amazing! Bus stops are right across the street, the Metro is two blocks away, and an amazing covered market is about 4 blocks away. And the neighborhood itself is so charming - far enough from all the touristy areas to get a better sense of the city, but not too far - just a short walk/ride away from all the major sites! Highly recommended!

Stay was perfect in every way. Size, layout, view appointments - wish we had longer there in this beautiful peaceful and lovely apartment. The view of the Sagrada Familia from the outside deck was outstanding. Dont stay anywhere else!

Lovely, airy, good location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment suited our needs well. The owners communicated well and nothing went wrong during the stay. The weather was perfect so no real need for a/c or heat. The kitchen is a little sparsely stocked if you want to cook but there are many good restaurants in easy walking distance.
