Myself and a friend were due to fly to Barcelona on Wed 12th of June for Sonar Music Festival. Unfortunately, due to french air traffic control strike our flight was cancelled and no alternatives were available until the friday. We were only staying in Barcelona for 5 nights so decided to cancel our trip and accommodation with Bonavista Apartments. Pablo (Manager) at Bonavista was very fair and understanding in respect of our late cancellation. I will definately consider Bonavista again for future trips to Barcelona.

Understandably cannot comment on the accommodation but all other reviews point to an excellent option for holiday in Barcelona!

Thanks very much Pablo!

Stayed at Apt # 102 from May 30 to June 2. We arrived much earlier than the check-in time but we were accommodated by Andre and then by Victor who met us at the apartment at 10 am. They both spoke English very well. We were allowed to leave our bags and walk around the area while we waited for the apartment to get cleaned up. We got apartment 102 which had a queen bed and a queen sized sofa bed. It had a good sized fridge, stove and oven, microwave and dishwasher. This allowed us to prepare a good breakfast before heading out for the tours in the morning as well as have late dinner on the day we had a late tour. The free wifi was a plus as it allowed the 4 of us to use our laptops at the same time. It had a flat-screen TV and we learned on the last day that it was connected to cable too so we could get English News networks. Previously it was set to Antenna and although there were a lot of channels, none had English programs.
The location of this place has its plus and minuses. On the plus side it was just off Passeig de Gracia and therefore close to the Metro (Subway) and close to some of the must-see sights (Casa Mila and Casa Battlo). On the negative side, it is located right beside a bar where it really gets noisy at night up to the wee hours of the morning. Just make sure you bring some ear plugs so you can get a continuous sleep.
Another thing I wanted to mention is that the Stove/Oven and dishwasher are European. Though I was able to figure how to operate them, it would be nice to have an instruction manual. Same with the washer, it was difficult to figure out the settings.
Since this is an apartment and not a hotel, you don't have daily cleaning and they don't provide you with bath soap, shampoo and conditioner. Either bring these or buy them in the nearby grocery ( Consum along Carrer Gran de Gracia ). Btw, make sure you buy extra toilet papers too as extra ones are not provided. What is provided is, dishwashing soap, dishwasher soap, and laundry soap.
Overall, the great price, amenities, location outweigh all the negatives and We give this 5 stars!!

The apartment wasn't 45sqm or even 40sqm (I measured 35sqm). But it was good.

SLEEP QUALITY: awful if you're on the first floor facing the street. Very noisy because the windows aren't double glazed and soundproof. Otherwise it's great since the beds and pillows are of excellent quality.


Modern, clean, bright and very well located. Everything is within walking distance since it's right in the centre of Eixample.

The second time we stayed there we asked for a room in the top floor, which was confirmed. However, when we arrived we were sent to the first floor again.

Thankfully they're very flexible and friendly and found us an apartment on the second floor facing the internal courtyard... Even though it didn't have a balcony like the street-facing apartments, it was much quieter.

FACILITIES: the usual with the nice addition for a washing machine AND a separate drier.

NOTE: there is air conditioning in the living room and main bedroom, but NOT in the single bedroom. The window there faces the entrance hallway so you can hear everyone coming in and out at night. Quite hot in the summer since its May and it's already hot in there.

Well located and within easy walking distance of everywhere important (and very close to a brilliant organic supermarket) these apartments are very well equipped, thoughtfully designed and have everything needed for a self-contained stay in Barcelona.
Comfy bed, great bathroom, spacious, very clean - all great.
One grouse, the front facing rooms are noisy at night (why do they empty the bottle banks at 3am) and Friday night seems particularly bad for late night drinking - so try and get a rear apartment.
Other than that we would certainly book again.

Stayed at Bona Vista 5 for 5 nights, with our 3 adult children. What a terrific location! Tucked right off the Passeig de Gracia, within walking distance of Eixample, Sagrada de Familia, Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas - sights not within walking distance are an easy cab ride away. The coffee shop at the corner is great, and open all the time. A great spot where we were able to meet up, as the apartment had only one set of keys. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment, with a separate living room - small, but very adequate. The small balcony on the street was a great spot for people watching. The only drawback was that the shower was broken in the one small bathroom. Our contact while staying in the apartment was Maria. She was very helpful. There is a bar a few doors down - Da Luz - which was also very convenient and a delightful, off-the-beaten-path stop. The street is noisy, but once you get used to it, it's a great vantage point for a great city experience.
