Isabel was fantastic, as was Flat 1A in Barcelona. The flat was very well appointed, very clean, and cool! Air conditioning works well. Isabel was able to get us a private driver to the airport during the taxi strike on very short notice. But most importantly, the flat is within just a few blocks walk to Las Ramblas, la Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, and La Placa de Catalunya. Easy access to metro and train lines within a few blocks. Perfect location for first timers.
This really is a Sweet Home Barcelona as it is called by the friendly owner Isabel. It is in the walking distance of the fascinating old city centre as well as Barcelonetta, la Sagrada Familia, etc. Considering the central location, the apartment was sufficiently quiet to allow a good night sleep. Isabel was very kind to share some tips on local eating venues, she had also prepared a folder containing information about attractions, transportation etc. If one wants to nag about something, perhaps it could be a WI-FI connection that left younger generation to struggle posting their activities online :).
We would highly recommend this apartment and hope to stay there next time when visiting Barcelona.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful 2 bedroom property. From the high ceilings to the antique tiles used to restore the flat to the spacious living room, my daughter and I were happy to stay 5 days in this Barcelona apartment. The smaller bedroom had limited space to store luggage, but right outside is the front entry way that was perfect to use. That bedroom also had a window to the inside courtyard, which could be noisy, so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. The flat was within walking distance to many of the key areas in Barcelona, including the Gothic Quarter, La Sagrada Familia, major shopping and other areas. Beach is a taxi ride away, and bring beach towels as none are provided. You can rent chairs and umbrellas at most of the beaches.
Isabel was there to welcome us to the flat, with a very warm welcome and a detailed list of potential restaurants, sights, and tips for the area and the city. The property has an elevator, very helpful when carting luggage!
Very well appointed property with all of the amenities you would hope for during a stay to Barcelona. Would absolutely stay here again and recommend to family and friends.
Everything you could need and close to most of the main tourist sites but quiet and comfortable. Isobel was a helpful and charming host who went out of her way to help us, her appartment is beautiful with all that you could need, in a safe and quiet area.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.
Ps. Isobel has also set it up well for small children.. high chair, games etc.
The location for this Barcelona apartment was perfect. It was within walking distance of many sites, yet was located in a nice quiet neighborhood. Isabel, the apartment owner, met us when we arrived. She was a lovely and gracious hostess. She provided some basic food items which was very thoughtful. The book of local sites and restaurant recommendations she left at the apartment was also very helpful. The apartment, though small, was well appointed and very comfortable for us. I would absolutely stay at this apartment again.
We loved our time in Barcelona at Isabel's flat. It had all the convinces you could want.
Beautifully decorated with enough space for my husband, my self and our son.
Isabel was a gracious host who helped us with any arrangements we requested.

A lovely spot for a 'girls' weekend with my mum and sister. The apartment was beautiful with some traditional Spanish features including original tiled floors. Very comfortable with a touch of luxury and everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect for us too. Quiet at night but close enough to easily get to the main attractions and within walking distance to plenty of lovely restaurants.
