“Excellent place in the middle of all the action.”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Right on Las Rambles 100m from Plaza Cataluna. We were in a back room so there was no noise from the thousands of people outside. The front rooms may be noisy. All modern facilities are provided and there is a supermarket next door.

“Great Value For Money and a True Gem”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in this compact, modern, clean and quiet apartment (situated at the Top of The Ramblas), for 5 days in July 2013. It is perfectly situated close to the Metro and is easily reached by taking the A2 bus from the airport to Place de Cataluña (and then it’s a couple of minutes walk). Site seeing, shopping and eating out are on your doorstep☺.

The apartment has excellent wifi, a large fridge, stovetop and microwave and combo washing machine and dryer, an iron and hairdryer. It has great external shutters to control the sun and provide total block-out for great sleeping - unusual in many of our recent accommodations. Security is excellent - you need a key to access the building. The neighbors are quiet and the apartment is not overlooked.

There are 2 small clean and efficient lifts to whisk you up to the apartment (a nice luxury in the summer heat). Walking down is easy and good exercise.

The apartment has excellent air-conditioning - critical during the end of July when it is a muggy 30 degrees at 6pm. Hotel air-conditioning can be very unreliable and is often at the mercy of a centrally controlled system, which is not a cool idea! Just be sure to turn it off when you go out and pull down the shutters (this ensures Mario can keep the rental costs reasonable). The bathroom is refreshingly clean and modern, with a great shower. There are no suspicious smells.

Apartment Top Ramblas looks down upon the roof of the supermarket it is built over so there is a sense of privacy and quietness not often found in apartment living in a city the size of Barcelona. During our stay a family moved into a larger unrenovated apartment on our floor facing The Ramblas, without a/c, so they had to open their windows for ventilation despite the fact that The Ramblas hums away beyond midnight. We felt sorry for them – always do your research re the climate you can expect in the countries you visit and never assume a/c is automatic. Remember that big crowded cities radiate heat from their infrastructure and it is always good to have a cool bolt-hole to retreat after a sweaty day’s site seeing.

Apartment Top Ramblas is literally next to a busy supermarket and good local restaurants. Three course daily lunch specials (for around 10 Euros) with wine and coffee are to be found if you bypass the hectically touristy Ramblas eating joints and explore the smaller labyrinth of alleyways.

The owner, Mario, was very accommodating and communicative. He willingly extended our checkout to 6pm to accommodate our evening flight. This was greatly appreciated.

Organize your arrival time, in advance, with Mario. Text him as you are leaving the airport etc. so he can meet you promptly (he lives nearby so you will not be kept waiting).

Expect to turn up with the cash for your stay upon arrival (easily attainable at the airport ATMs). You will be given an official receipt so there are no concerns here.

We highly recommend this apartment for the ability to enjoy cooking some of the local produce yourself. St Josephs Market is a couple of minutes down The Ramblas, offering a tremendous selection of affordable seafood and delicatessen delights.

Light sleepers may find the rumble of the Barcelona metro (it is fairly continuous) a little unsettling to begin with. I suspect this may be a problem throughout the inner city area since the Barcelona metro is shallow unlike the unnervingly deep London and Moscow undergrounds. On the plus side a shallower metro is easier and nicer to use (but it is hot).

Do not hesitate to book this apartment – it is great value for money and a true gem!

“Overall Excellence”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The location is perfect for visitors who want to be in the city center: a supermarket at the street level, the city information booth across the street, restaurants galore, a world famous street scene outside the front door, walking distance to many tourist sites. The apartment faces the back of the building so it is quiet and we enjoyed the view of the ancient brick walls that were incorporated into the newer buildings.
The owner, Mario Pou, was great; very responsive and reliable and made sure we had his contact information.
The apartment was exactly as described, immaculate, well furnished and well supplied. The wi-fi was fast and easy to access and the building has two elevators, though they are a short set of steps from the lobbly.
