“Gem of a place”
Reviewed November 1, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed here for four nights and couldn't have wished for more. The apartment is great for a couple both private and secure., very quiet location but easily accessiible to anywhere in the city as the hostafranc metro is right outside. There are many places to eat nearby catering for all tastes. We booked a transfer from the airport via a taxi which was quite expensive, having now visited barcelona I would recommend useing the aerobus service which regularly runs to and from the city costing only 6 euros each way. If choosing to stay here the bus stops at plaza espanya which is literally 10 minutes walk to the front door, just head for hostafranchs metro when you get to the large hostafrancs market head up by the traffic lights with the front door right next to the dentist marked with a number eight. We visited all main attractions in Barcelona we were not disappointed and would highly recommend the usual tourist trail, one thing to note if you're budgeting a holiday is that anything you eat or drink in the la rambla area will cost you double at least than anywhere else. (Beer costing £7) there are many alternatives close by to rest your legs and enjoy the ambience, just take a short walk on one of the many side streets to find a cheaper yet better quality of both food and drink. To name but one of these places head for placa reial which is a beautiful square with multiple options to eat and drink, as a guide two beers two glasses of wine two three coarse meals with coffee cost £40, I felt it necessary to order so much just to be able to write a fair and honest review honestly! There isn't much else I could say which hasn't been said already, other than barcelona was a fantastic place which was made that extra special by our stay in this apartment. Thankyou Lourdes for being such a great host and allowing us to stay in our own little casa, it was everything we hoped for and more. Oh and I did water the plants!

“Exactly what we wanted!”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This cute little apartment was just as it looks in the pictures. The location was very central and Lourdes was helpful & professional. The apartment was small (but perfect for my sister and myself) and the roof top patio was so big we were only inside to sleep anyhow. Even when it poured rain we could sit out on the covered area and enjoy our dinner and wine. There is a washing machine and clothes line to use. Downstairs was small shops with food, wine and a grocery store 2 blocks away. The subway was right out the door. The night was so quiet. No street noise at all! Although my sister heard people and babies from the bedroom which was above a court yard. Highly recommend this spot - it was perfect as a home base to see this beautiful city.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed in this apartment for four days in May. It is a fantastic little apartment and very well equipped and clean. Has a beautiful roof terrace with loads of outdoors space to sit and relax. Great location with Metro and Bus stops right outside the apartment. As an example, one afternoon I was from the apartment to La Rambla on the metro in just 6 minutes! Supermarkets, restaurants and shops all very close by as well.
Lourdes the apartment owner was very nice and extremely helpful.
All in all I would definitely return to this apartment, had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed staying there!

“Home away from home!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had such a great stay in this lovely apartment. Lourdes is wonderful to deal with, from beginning to end everything was smooth. Great location, right near the metro. After a long day of sightseeing, the rooftop was exactly what we needed to relax and enjoy some wine. The stairs are tough but after a couple of days you get used to it and to me to have that rooftop patio, I would have climbed more stairs. Please help Lourdes keep her plants alive and water them every couple of days if you are staying for a week or more, such a relaxing activity and Lourdes certainly appreciates it. Thank you for everything Lourdes. We hope to see you again someday. Gracies!

“Rooftop Retreat for alfresco evenings”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I travelled alone on business but cannot wait to get back to this apartment with family to enjoy to its fullest. Excellent location with metro and bus less than 5 min walk. D20 bus would have you at the beach in 20 minutes. Plaza Espanya only 10 mins walk with links to anywhere in the city. Supermarket and fresh market also very close so everything you need.
Property has all of the household items from a hair dryer to a washing machine if you are lucky to stay longer!
Lourdes was the perfect host, who happily answered my e-mails with any questions I had.
I would highly recommend this property. There is no lift and 89 steps but they are worth it for the beautiful space that has been created on the rooftop.

“A little gem in Barcelona”

person found this review helpful

Perfect apartment to rent for a stay in Barcelona. The rooftop terrace is magnificent, location perfect, close enough to the center but tucked away in a quieter neighborhood so my stay was peaceful. The metro station and fresh food market was literally across the road. Lourdes was very accommodating and I will definitely rent this apartment again.

“Great Location, Wonderful Views”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I stayed with 3 adults in this wonderful place. Lourdes was fantastic met us there one time and was very flexible seeing as we need to stay an extra night. She also supplied us with water and a bottle of wine, which was fantastic. The wifi worked wonderfully.
The locations is wonderful, near the main train station and ridiculously close to a subway stop. We did have to take the subway often to get to places because Barcelona is a bit large. It is very close to a market, which is nice.
The climb up the stairs is a lot, but we were prepared for that by reading other reviews, so that did not bother us at all. It is quite and has wonderful views at the top of the building.
I would stay here again.
