“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

The apartment was great, exactly how it looked in the pictures. The washing machine was nice after a few weeks of travelling. We couldn't get hot water in the shower for more than a few minutes which was annoying. Overall, the hosts were so helpful and I would definitely recommend and stay at this apartment again!

a good place to stay, clean, not far from the tourist sights, would recommend to stay in future. one thing happened was we gave them a text informing we would arrive in 30mins, but there was some connection lost due to the phone?, so we had to wait for several minutes outside, but it was no biggy, and the staff was very nice and helpful

I travelled to Barcelona alone in May,2014. I was satisfied with the big, clean room and that double size bed. The staff were very nice. They greeted to guests at the door(remember to give a call before your arrival) and offered a lot of valuable information.The location is convenient ,just next to metro station-verdaguer and diagonal, it's centrical but away from crowds of tourists which is safer and more quiet. The apartment is spacious and bright, equipped with everything you need, cooker, hairdryer.. sometimes guests shared the food and had some talk at the dining table,very great atmosphere. I'd like to thank GianFranco for the warm reception here and I really recommend this place :-)

I was in Barcelona with my friends for a 6 day vacation. The house was very clean and was located close to metro station.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
I definitely recommend the house for your stay in Barcelona.

We stayed in the apartment on Calle Sant Pere Martir, 15. The neighborhood is really nice, both quiet and with lots of good restaurants, cafes, and bars. The metro station is only 5 minutes away, and lots of tourist attractions of Example are within walking distance of the flat. There are a couple of amazing vegetarian places not far from the apartment: Zaatar Vegetariano (C Paris 200) and Quinoa Bar Vegetaria (Travessera de Gracia, 203), as well as a great Italian restaurant called La Tarantalla (C Fraternitat, 37). Highly recommended to anyone who would like to enjoy Barcelona away from crowds of tourists.

I was in Barcelona with the family for a 4-day vacation and after the MWC in February I decided to choose once again Sweet BCN Apartments. At Ferrer de Blanes 6 there is a very nice and comfortable loft, lot of services around, close to Diagonal (L3), 5 mins walk to Passeig de Gracia. Lot of space for the children - three rooms and a big living room. This is the fourth time for me in Barcelona and there is no other place to stay but Sweet BCN Apartments. Thanks to the staff and to Gian Franco.
