Loved the views from the roof terrace, quiet area, comfy bed, brilliant staff, lovely restaurants
The sofa was a bit saggy and uncomfortable for two middle aged folk.
Perfect apartment and loads of cafes and late night lively bars right on the doorstep
Trivial matter (the waste from the bathroom sink needs clearing as the water was draining away very slowly). This minor issue is the ONLY thing I could think to mention in this section !
The location is in the lively Born area with many good restaurants but the apartment is in a quiet pedestrian street so is quiet at night. The main bedroom is not large but there is a comfortable living/dining area. The staff at Inside BCN were exceptionally helpful and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was very good value for money.
The space was good and the terrace an awesome place for al fresco eating. Location very good for the barrio and Picasso, cathedral etc. Kitchen good, living space adequate.
Concierge office not in the building but about a five minute walk. Concierge turned the blame on our WIFI provider when in fact their whole building was affected, but no reaction until other, presumably younger people, complained. No apology received.
Location,facilities provided where great,easy to walk to everything and everything you needed was close by.
The two things that stood out most about Inside Barcelona apartments were the excellent staff and the PERFECT location of the apartment. We were provided with maps, information about sights, restaurants and basically everything anyone could want or need on a holiday. The staff were extremely nice, friendly and knowledgeable, and spoke the best English of anyone we came across on our entire European holiday (12 cities). Barcelona is notorious for pickpockets and in many areas can feel unsafe and quite scary for tourists. Not here. A beautiful part of the city (El Born / La Ribera), with amazing restaurants everywhere, great shopping, and just a wonderful vibe. It is officially the oldest part of the city, but feels the most modern of anywhere, if that makes sense. The apartment we stayed in was literally 40m away from the most beautiful park in Barcelona (Parc de la Ciutadella), and was also within walking distance of many markets, bars, La Rambla and the beach. As for the apartment itself, what can I say! Two-storey, a beautiful kitchen complete with washing machine, a great shower, two bedrooms for the price of one, a beautiful balcony, air conditioning on both floors. WOW. Stay here. I could not recommend this place any higher.
Our apartment was in the best location in the El Born district of Barcelona which is a perfect place to stay. Full of great bars, restaurants and shops on one side and the zoo and beautiful park on the other. The apartment was like being at home after staying in hotels for the last 4 weeks. It was clean, spacious, very comfortable and, had everything you have at home incl washing machine and dryer, which was a heaven sent. We were also lucky we had a roof top balcony. The staff at Inside Barcelona were fantastic as well and extremely attentive. If going to Barcelona again this would be the place to stay at 10 out of 10
Great location, and very secure apartment... As a group of 3 girls, we felt very safe! The beds were super comfy, the apartment was clean and the kitchen was fully equipped, the staff were very kind and helpful.. We didn't want to leave!
The hot water, or lack of, was the only downside for us.
- Cleanliness and modern appliances and apartment. - Excellent location,walk out of the apartment and find many great restaurants with great ( Not the tourist menu nut real local food) - Excellent customer service. Property has an office,I got an email with complete instruction how to reach via train/taxi.On check in someone from office came with us.showed apartment,gave instructions on appliances and locks etc.with instruction in apartment. - I had an issue with locker and I went down to their ofice and they came with me and solved the issue in 5 minutes. No charge.
Inside Barcelona provided us with comprehensive directions for getting to their office from the airport and advice about booking for the Gaudi sites we wished to see. We opted for the airport train with a same-platform change at Passeig de Gràcia to get to Estació de França, a 5 minute walk from the Inside Barcelona office. The comfortable apartment, a home away from home is in a quiet pedestrian zone in the Born district, which has lots of cafés, bars and shops, and a well-stocked supermarket, De Tot El Born, within 10-15 minutes walk. And you can get to anywhere in Barça from either the Estació de França train station or the Jaume 1 metro station, 10 minutes walk away.
Location, very nice Building, High ceilings, friendly staff
The bathroom door got stuck due to poor quality.
Location, building, design, staff
Top service before arrival, at arrival and when leaving. I've never before received so much relevant information - always given with a smile. Good location: quiet and reasonably central: not more than 15 mns walk to anywhere in the old town - and close to the beach.
Only a detail: you must fix the lock in the street door.
Excellent wifi Clean, modern look
Having an apartment Location Location Very friendly helpful staff Good wi fi Location Busy area for locals and tourists alike Food galore Brief walk to centro
Poor water pressure Old towels..small and a little thin
Everything was absolutely perfect. We got detailed instructions how to get to the office from the airport. It was really near to the train station. All the area was really nice. The apartment is close to the office and nice park. There are a lot of restaurants. Supermarket and pharmacies are very close. It is about 15 minutes from the beach. Paula was very friendly and helpful. She walked us to the apartment from the office. She explained us everything necessary about apartment. We got map with nearest supermarket, pharmacies, and recommended restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner and so on. We got list of basic information and extra services. Paula showed us he most interesting places of Barcelona on the map and she told us how to get there. We were surprised that we have a terrace as we didn’t expect it. It was great. We felt there as home. The apartment was very nice and clean. It looks like exactly as on the photos. It is very well equipped. The air conditioning was really necessary in the hot weather.
Even before we left the UK the staff at Inside were exceptionally helpful advising us what pre-flight arrangements/bookings we needed to make for us to make the most of our time in the city. Face to face meeting on arrival was reassuring that the staff "were there for us" 24hrs if needed. All of the historic sites of the city are well within walking distance of flat, thus we were able to soak up all the smells tastes & sight of the city.
We appreciate that the stairs in the apartment were a design feature & thus unavoidable... but would have preferred living on one level.
Lovely light & spacious apartment close to the gothic area & las ramblas. Plenty of choice for restaurants on the doorstep. Taxi from airport 34€ but easily caught the train back for 4€pp
There was no shower gel / shampoo in the apartment
The location of the apartment is a bit tricky at first but once you know where it is it's fine, in fact it is superb. In the Born area close to lots of restaurants & bars with a lovely feel to the whole area. Quiet place in a busy area with superb staff at Inside Barcelona, fantastic. Only slight downside are the loose fitting bed sheets & a couple of small issues with maintenance but nothing that would put me off moving in permanently.
Nothing to dislike really
Paula from Inside Barcelona as lovely, gave us a great welcome and supplied lots of useful information. Nice split level apartment in the trendy Born area, with no street traffic, lots of nice restaurants and bars and also within walking distance of the beach.
Car parking in nearby municipal car park is expensive (26 euro a day)
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great location
Brilliant facilities, so close to the places in Barcelona you must visit, very helpful staff.
Comfortable apartment and very nice staff (they are very very helpful). The apartment is very clean and kitchen is reasonably nice. We were happy to have the AC and washing machine since we have a small child. We will for sure stay here again when we return to Barcelona next time.
The bed can use a little upgrade. The bed has sagged a little; not as comfy as we like. The hot water is limited (can only take 14 min hot shower) since they have a small water tank.
Size of the appartment, especially when compared to an hotel room Living in the city, with people from Barcelona in a trendy area The terrasse although we did not use it a lot
The staff were so friendly, explained everything about the apartment, helped with arrangements. The apartment was a wonderful surprise, modern with a large living room and complete with terrace, table and chairs where we played cards till midnight! The area was fantastic, not far from the beach and harbour, quiet in the day and lively at night with lovely bars and restaurants. Wonderful!
Absolutely Nothing! It was perfect!
