“great location - good prices - overall good value!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stayed in the apartment with two teenagers, and each had their own room and space. the location is great, near metro and just down the street is a supermarket and huge market. great neighbourhood, no fear to walk during the night. we did have trouble with air conditioning, but a repairman came to fix it. the apartment was clean and we enjoyed the fact that we could cook and do laundry.
at the begining of our stay there were some problems with internet , but that too was solved quickly.
we always prefer vacation rentals when staying for more than 3-4 nights in one place. Better that hotel , great for families or group. What you see in the pictures is what you get.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment in the Villarroel Centre complex. Check in was on site (recently moved) which was a big help and we could leave our luggage in a room beside the check in desk until our apt was ready. David was very helpful and orientated us on a map.The lift up is very small and only fits one or two people at a time but if you don't fancy lugging your case up the stairs the lift will do the job for you. The apt had 2 bathrooms which was great for our party of five. Shower was great and pressure good with plenty of hot water.Kitchen was fully equiped with all you could need for your stay. Our apt was at the back so noise from the street not an issue. We had a small balcony which was great to dry beach towels on. Main double room large and really nice and other 2 rooms a bit tight for 2 adults+ luggage (twin) but beds comfortable and we all slept well. The apt is close to la Rambla (10 min walk) and the area feels safe day and night. As mentioned in other reviews a bakery is downstairs and supermarkets are close by. The air con/heater was difficult to work out how to use so it would be helpful if instructions left in apt. for this. Great to be near a metro/subway stop and there are a few nice bars around the corner if you don't fancy a long walk late at night (taxis cheap and metered anyway) At our request the receptionist organised a minivan to collect us for our trip back to the airport. All in all I would recomend the Villarroel Centre apts, the Dailyflats team and would stay here again should I return to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Throw a few dishwasher tabs from home in your bag as only a few provided. Our apt was away from mai...

This apartment in Barcelona was very suitable for us. It is hard to find such reliable vacation rentals in Barcelona. Most of them aren’t fully equipped, or the staff isn’t friendly. This is not the case. We spent a very nice time there, it was completely furnished and very well located and moreover, the team was so kind to us.

This is a charming apartment in Barcelona. My husband and I have spent a week there with my grandsons and I shall say it was a lovely time.

The beds are comfortable and rooms are big enough to fit your entire luggage and actually be able to move around easily. Also the kitchen is roomy and very well equipped I may say (my grandsons love my apple pie, so this was a must when choosing our accommodation).

Although we are used to stay in apartments when we travel, we hardly find such a level of service. The people working there were very kind to us, specially our check-in assistant David, which offered us very interesting information about the city and the area.

I will definitely return to Barcelona, and surely I will rely on Dailyflats again.

We stayed as a family of 7 in a 3 bed room apartment . 4 children and 3 adults. The 2 smaller ones used the living room sofa as a bet (it opened). The apartment it located about 10 min walk from the center and the ramble st.. It had every thing for our stay all the kitchen apps. All the bending needed a tv, micro, washer with dryer ... There are few supermarkets just across the street. It was a very comfortable and reasonable solution for so many. The only problems were the street noise when opening the windows but no sound when they are closed and there were 2 air conditions in the apartment. And no instructions how to work the electronic appliances. There is free Internet so  a short googling gave us the instructions but still it would have been nice to have them given in the reception. It must be noted that the reception is located about 20 min walk from the apartment and if you have many luggages as we add it is not very comfortable to walk the distance (there is a subway). We had a very good experience and I defiantly recommend the place and will be back.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad to hear you and your family enjoyed the stay in one of our DF Villarroel Centre apartments in Barcelona.

As the apartments have a very central location, it can be noisy sometimes when opening the windows. However, luckily you do not have any noise problems when the windows are being closed. In case there are any questions regarding on using the appliances, feel free to contact your contact person or the check-in office directly as we will gladly assist you.

We are also very pleased to inform you that we have recently opened a new check-in office which is only a short 2 minute walk away from the apartments, making it more convenient for our guests. For your next stay in Barcelona, we would gladly welcome you again in one of our apartments!

Kind regards,

Spent 5 nights in the Villarreol 28 apartment and would definitely rent again from this agency. We were allowed to keep our luggage at the rental office (not near the apt but 5 min walk from the center of town - Placa Catalunya where the Aerobus left us off). We spent the day on the Hop-on-off Bus and toured the city, returned to the rental office at 5pm, retrieved our luggage and they helped us get a mini-van taxi for 4 of us (and luggage) to Villarroel. It was a older residential block with elevator and our apartment overlooked the quiet street with french doors opening to the balcony. Very European! Sparcly furnished but adequate. Couch, a couple chairs, flat screen TV and dining table and chairs in the LR, adjoining galley kitchen with stove, oven, full refrigerator. Wished there was a microwave!!! MBR was large with another flat screen TV but the other 2 bedrooms were single beds and tiny rooms - OK for a vacation. We spent almost no time in our actual bedroom except for sleeping. Convenient bakery next door for pastries, sandwiches, juices and coffees. Escriba - one of the oldest and best known bakeries in Barcelona was only a few blocks north of Grand Via. We could walk everywhere from our location and the Aerobus back to the airport was only 2 short blocks away. IDEAL. It's in a safe neighborhood. We were 3 ladies in their 60's and one daughter in mid 40's and we always were careful yet felt very secure there. Shower needs to be pointed very far into the wall so it doesn't spray out into the toilet area but we dealt with that too. Wish there was a clothes dryer and not just a washing machine. But you can't have everything. Good value for the money. I've rented vacation houses in the US before but never in Europe and would definitely do it again for a group. Much more fun than everyone having their own room and having to meet in the lobby.

Room Tip: The Villarroel 28 (apt 28 in the complex) was in a great location and good for 4 people.

Since there were four of us (friends) travelling together, this seemed the most economical, yet comfortable way to go rather than finding hotel rooms. This is my first time renting a flat rather than a hotel, and it was a good experience. The flat was clean, plenty of towels and pillows, and very comfortable for our 5 night stay. The lift worked well (we were on second floor) - room for all 4 of us without luggage.
The location was great - and we loved the bakery right next door for our breakfasts. (However, do try to find Escribe Bakery a couple blocks away for a 'Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory - and bakery - experience. Just look for the huge decorated chocolate dragon in the window!)
If you are leaving the flats and going to the airport, the bus stops literally less than a 5 minute walk away - very convenient as well. It's also about a 20 minute walk to Plaza Catalunya.
My one (rather minor) complaint would be that there were no directions for the washing machine - and we must have spent 15-20 minutes trying to figure it out. By then, we could have rinsed the clothes out in the sink -- and there is no automatic dryer. A microwave oven would have been nice, but we did OK without it.
Be prepared to supply your own toilet paper, paper towels, etc. There may be some there, but there wasn't enough to last our entire stay. There was dishwasher soap, sponge for kitchen, though.
There is one inconvience involved with booking the flat rather than a hotel. We arrived on early morning flights, and had to pick up the keys at their office, not on the premises. They were very helpful, and held our luggage for us until we could check in. However, this necessitated moving our luggage from the office to the flat - a 20 minute walk when we were already exhausted from our overnight flight and initial sightseeing. If at a hotel, the bags would have already been in the building.
We would have also found a concierge to be helpful at times, but we made do with the internet to answer our questions. (There is wi-fi available - but it could often be quite slow...)
One more minor item. It would have been helpful if the management had given better directions from Plaza Catalunya to their office. (a landmark to look for to steer us to the right street, etc.) - The Plaza is huge, and bleary-eyed tourists had no idea which way to even go once let off at the Aerobus stop. Also, the office is unmarked - just an address and double glass doors - with buttons to push for access - no name. We were lucky to find it ... though it took us 20 minutes to find out which way to walk from the bus stop.
All in all, a great experience - and would definitely recommend these flats - just a couple of suggestions to make the experience a little easier!

Thank you very much for your lovely review and we are glad to hear you and your friends enjoyed the stay in one of our Villarroel Centre apartments and that you had a great time here in Barcelona and got to experience some delicious bakery goods.

We offer apartments and as a service we do provide toilet paper and toiletries to at least survive the first night, however we do not supply it for the entire stay as we are not a hotel.

As many guests informed us to prefer a check-in office in a more convenient and close location we are currently also implementing changes regarding our check-in offices and will open a new check-in office mid May that would be located only 2 minutes walking from the Villarroel Centre apartment and closer to other apartments as well. So in case you would come to Barcelona again, this would be more convenient for you. We would gladly welcome you again.
