Our personalised briefing by Sebastian on our arrival,his recommendations and helpful advice in response to our questions made us feel very welcome in Barcelona. We would plan to stay there again if we have the opportunity.
Location is great close to shops and restaurants. Very quiet and clean
nothing it was great
Good location within walking distance to the Born area, lots of really nice restaurants and cafes. Very helpful staff. The staff offered to look after our luggage due to early arrival and late checkout.
Only two wine glasses in the apartment. The Wifi was not stable.
Loved the location, the layout of the apartment is terrific. The terrace was huge, perfect for sitting outside after a great day of site seeing.
There is a number of night clubs in the area. The patrons leave the clubs at 5 or 6 am. Not too great if you are a light sleeper.
Area - Born is a chic and interesting district. It feels safe at night. You can walk to many places or take the metro. Lots of nice bars and restaurants. Personally I chose it as I had friends staying at Hotel Picasso one block away.
It was extensive for one person to stay- but that was inevitable vive my situation of booking last minute.
Location was great, apartment clean and staff very helpful
Location was great ! one step away of all the spots ( right in front of "ciutadella parc") near city and beach The apartment is quite complete, big and clean and even being in the back of the center is not noisy at all. kitchen well equipated
The bed on main room is really too small and not confortable at all. They have 2 small single beds together the matress are too narrow and very thin, not good quality , what is a pity because besides that the apartment is quite qualitative - I think they should really reconsider to change the bed and put better matress and a bigger double bed ( instead of two singles) because that is really damaging all the good points of the apartment . We've been there 7 days and Wi-fi only worked well 3 days ...
So easy to get to tourist sites in Barcelona & just a 15 min walk to the beach. Lovely restaurants & bars nearby. Would stay there again for definite!
Modern nice apartment.
We arrived on a saturday and we called the number on our reservation but did not get an answer. Hard to check-in even after 15.00.
no parking, only one bathroom
Sebastian who received us was extremely helpful and kind. The nearby main street was not a problem at all. Very newly renovated, spacious and extremely comfortable.
W-Lan did not work the first day.
Modern apartment with comfortable bedroom, great bathroom and spacious living area. The terrace is really superb! Great to be given a map of the area and suggestions of where to go.
Seemed to be a lot of rules to comply with so the check-in process was quite protracted. Didn't seem much versatility on late check-outs etc.
Location was great, apartment was clean and comfortable. We were able to use the hotel as our base of operations without being too far away from anything. The location was about 15 mins from La Rambla and the beach.
The building front door had issues staying locked which was frustrating. It looked as if it had just been broken. We reported it right before we left so we don't know if it was fixed right away
Bad wifi connection, no service, no cleaning during 1 week stay
Everything was fantastic. Sebastian greeted us and explained everything very well, the location of the apartments is fantastic and very central and perfect for a group of friends travelling.
We were given the wifi password but none of us could connect to the internet for the entire duration of the stay which was annoying.
Excellent location and really helpful owners. Pretty decent kitchen and bathroom
The beds are really small and pretty uncomfortable. The trip switch kept turning everything off and the kettle didn't work. We had to clean a lot of it as it was pretty dusty when we arrived..
Location was good for park and walking distance to city centre.we had a lovely terrace with our room ,in the warmer weather would have been well used,the apartment was spotless .there was plenty of crockery if you intend to cook
They could do with some new towels and tea towels,they were grey ,the heating in the sitting area wasn't too good .which is quite essential in march .there was a leak under the sink.and a couple of bulbs needed replaced.the safe didn't work.we did report it ,but I don't think they were in a hurry to fix it .not while we were there anyway
Loved the location, and the apartment. Would definitely go back.
Wifi had continuous problems which, given we were there for work - was really annoying. Also annoying for an English person - the kettle wasn't working.
excellent location for the El Baro region and the prettiest part of Barcelona. Easy walk to metro and to the beach. Lots of great restaurants and landmarks very close. the apartment was lovely - everything you could have wanted! Our host gave us plenty of information on arrival. Remember it's not a hotel, it is an apartment so there is no concierge!
Just for info and this was not a problem for us but there are spiral stairs in the penthouse apartment.
best accomondation everd had
to leave the apartment after four nights
Excellent location in a lovely area. The white and silver scheme is stylish and feels plush. Beds comfy and the lounge area is really nice. The bath is very small
The hot water never got more than warm and therefore baths and showers weren't that great. We had to boil wate to add to bath. The kettle didnt work at all but we managed by boiling water on hob. Cuttlery and glasses were more for 2 rather than 4. Also I paid £180 on booking.com but when we got there they insisted money wasnt charged and proceeded to ask for £220. This included Catalan visitor tax which is fine but also included a cleaning charge?! Not really on.
location and enviroment
Kitchen facility is so simple and Oven is not working.
The apartment was great, better than our imagination. And the location was great as well, very close to a good Japanese buffet.
On the morning we checked out, as required, we left the keys on the table and lock the door. However, when we went downstair, it turned out that the main gate was locked and we did not have the key!! So we had to wait for 20 mins. Apart from it, everything was great.
The house was clean and beautiful, with all comforts. The location is perfect, next to the Park and to the city center. We'll come back.
