“Great Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

You simple cannot beat the location or price of this flat in the El Born section of Barcelona; within walking distance to almost everything. We stayed in the Saba unit of the building which is over 400 years old but beautifully renovated with 2 French door balconies so you can watch the action in the street below. The rental agent Eve was great.....meet us at the appointed time, helped us with our luggage up the 3 flights of stairs, gave us travel advice and made sure that everything was working and we were satisfied before she left....very impressed with her and Pillow Apartments! Wifi and full washer and dryer were a bonus as this was the last stay of a 3 week European trip. The only negative was there seemed to be a sewer gas smell coming from the bathroom but we left the fan on and kept the door closed to help remedy this.....must be an "old building" problem as we noticed this in Rome also. Would highly recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2010

We stayed in the Potosi apartment for four nights in the beginning of May. The apartment is beautiful and looks exactly like the photos on their website. It's got a full kitchen, washer/dryer, free wifi, great a/c and heater, etc. It was so nice to have a living room and eating area in addition to the bedroom, for less than the price of most hotel rooms in Barcelona. The location is fantastic - right in the middle of one of the main streets in the El Born neighborhood. You walk out the door and are surrounded by restaurants, shops, etc. There was a little noise from the street but the apartment is high up, so it wasn't too bad (and we slept with earplugs so it was fine). On the other hand I wouldn't want to show up with lots of heavy luggage because there are a lot of stairs and no elevator. A couple of other issues: the people who run La Casa de l'Argent (and their sister building, La Casa de les Lletres) are extremely nice, but could be more on top of things. For example, when I had asked about the cancellation policy, they said we could cancel up to one week before with no charge, but then after I paid the 50% deposit they told me it was nonrefundable. They did not seem to understand that this was contradictory and I think it was an honest communication error, but be warned that their communication skills are not perfect. Also the washing machine wasn't working and it took two emails to them to get them to fix it, so we had to bring our clothes to a laundromat, which was disappointing. And the biggest negative was that there was an odd, mildewy smell that seemed to be coming from the shower, and sometimes made the apartment smell funny. I don't know what caused it but hopefully it was temporary. Overall it was an excellent deal for a very attractive apartment in a fantastic location. If you want any guidance from a concierge while you're there, I'd stay in a hotel because you're completely on your own in this apartment. But if you're confident in exploring Barcelona independently, I'd definitely recommend staying here.
