“EXCELLENT STAY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”

we stayed in the apartment for 10 nights

we travelled with our 3 year old daughter

this was our 1st rip to barcelona and we absolutely loved it. the location was very important , the apartment is located on a quiet back street which included a great japanese restaurant and a small grocery store.at one end of the street is Catalunya square, a central travel hub with all modes of transport available.at the other end of the street the gothic 1/4 starts,which houses hundreds of small shops and bars in beautiful old streets.

lorenzo,the owner was a joy to deal with from start to finish,i even emailed him with a question on the FREE wifi and he responed immediately.

the place was clean and tidy and had many useful things.

thank you lorenzo and Barcelona for a truly amazing holiday in a fantastic city

“Excellant location and extremely helpful owner”

The apartment could not be in a better location, it is around 30 secs from Placa Espanya and a 15 min walk from the bus station.
The apartment was very clean when we arrived and had all the things we needed (bed sheets, extra blankets, kitchen utensils etc.)

The best thing however must be the owner Lorenzo, he was extremely helpful and communicative throughout.

“Great location and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

people found this review helpful

I have been coming to BCN for over 30 years and have pretty much stayed in every type of accommodation. Above all else location is king - and this has it being 2 minutes walk from Pl de Catalunya (and hence the Aerobus stop).
Do the sums; a basic single hotel room centrally located will set you back circa 70 euros a night (eg Hotel Toledano, Hotel Lloret etc..) A decent hotel ( eg Camper ) is more like 150+ euros a night eg For the cost of this flat you get much more space, a fridge, ability to cook for yourself, watch TV in private, sit on a sofa, eat at a table in private etc... etc..
It has a small shop for essentials 20 meters from the entrance and 2 forns for bread in the morning within 3 minutes walk. Palau de la Musica and El Born are 2 minutes across Via Laeitana; Barri Gotic/Cathedral etc 3 minutes via all pedestrian routes.
It's quiet at night; no traffic due to location and most of the nieghbours seem to be older. No parties!
Very clean and comfortable bed/bedding with extra bedding if needed.
The apartment could do with a freshen up (it's not as modern as some we've used) but you pay for what you get; there were two of us but 3 or 4 sharing 60 euros a night to pay is a no-brainer. There's a 4 ring gas hob, oven and fridge with small freezer. No dishwasher/washing machine. The bathroom is very small but but does the job perfectly well. No aircon but heater provided for cooler evenings.
Biggest minus point for us is lack of lift and it's up 4 floors (principal, primero, segundo then tercero)
Wifi provided.
Would I use it again? Yes
Would I recommed it? Yes
Best of all the owner (UK based) is helpful and trustworthy; going direct and cutting out the letting agencies will save (you both) a hefty premium

“Central Location, great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

Stayed for 5 nights at the end of July with 2 friends. This apartment was perfect. It had a fully equipped kitchen and the beds were comfortable. Towels were supplied and the apartment was clean. We were a 5 min walk from one of the city's main squares and las rambles which was great for eating out. The airport bus stop is located on this square so it was very easy to find when we arrived. The tour buses also leave from here so it was good for sightseeing. The beach was within walking distance but there is 2 metro stations close by which we also used. Great holiday.

Nous avons séjourné à 2 couples en famille et cet appartement convient tout-à-fait pour accueillir 4 personnes. Il est exceptionnellement bien situé, les photos sont le reflet exact des lieux. Lorenzo a organisé notre venue très facilement (remise des clés) et nous a bien conseillés.

“Ottima posizione, scelta consigliata!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
Google Translation

In base alle recensioni qui su tripadvisor, abbiamo scelto questo piccolo appartamento senza grandi aspettative ma con la necessità di alloggiare in una posizione centrale visto che poi in appartamento non ci stai
molto… abbiamo invece avuto una piacevole sorpresa, l'appartamento è sufficientemente spazioso, molto pulito, ben organizzato, dotato di tutti i comfort. Lo
consigliamo vivamente, qualora decidessimo di tornare a Barcellona lo prenoteremo sicuramente di nuovo. Grazie al proprietario Lorenzo ed alla sua
disponibilità che ci hanno permesso di trascorrere una piacevolissima vacanza.
