“Excellent! Best vacation in Barcelona”
Reviewed September 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The apartment is fully corresponds to the photos ! Very convenient location . All rooms have air conditioning . Comfortable bathroom. The most important thing for me was that comfortable bed with orthopedic mattresses . At the bottom of the supermarket . The windows looked out not on La Rambla so it was very quiet and well . Mario is very good landlord . At any time, been in touch if there were any questions about the apartment or the city. If you wish to Barcelona then I highly recommend this apartment . Thank you Mario for everything!

“Clean, Comfortable and a GREAT location!”
Reviewed November 8, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a wonderful 4 night stay here 10/15 to 10/19/2015. The unit was exactly as described in the listing. It was clean, quiet, attractively furnished, had very comfortable bedding and although we didn't use it much, the kitchen was fully equipped. The unit also had a clothes washer-dryer that came in handy and the Wi-Fi. worked well. Mario was an excellent landlord. He met us as promised, made helpful restaurant suggestions, told us the best way to transfer from the airport, and responded promptly to a request for instructions regarding the washer-dryer. The location can't be beat. Right on the Rambla, near Placa Cataluna, the Gotic District, El Born, the Metro and lots of other wonderful sites. It was a GREAT place to stay.

“Incredibly QUIET apartment in a perfect location”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a wonderful stay in this very clean & comfortable apartment, with everything you need. Its unbelievable quiet when just outside the main entrance you are right in the middle of hetic la ramblas bustle, but a good experience.
Mario was professional, friendly & on hand if you needed him.
Could not of wished for a more central located apartment, it was very convenient
for us to explore Barcelona & the supermarket next door was a added bonus too.
We highly recommend this apartment. Thankyou Mario regards Helen & Ashley

Stop; you've found your place! We were fortunate to stay at Mario's apartment on our recent trip to Barcelona. If you are looking for a place that is convenient to get to from the airport, in the middle of the action and quiet at the same time, this is your place. The Aerobus drops you off at Plaça de Catalunya and it is a three-block walk down Les Rambles to this apartment, where you will find Mario waiting for you with a smile on his face - he's a really great guy.

As for the apartment itself, it is exactly what the pictures look like, only better. It is not large, but it definitely provides more comfort than a typical hotel room. It is a one-bedroom apartment. There is an open-plan kitchen and living room and a separate bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. In the kitchen you will find everything you need for whatever amount of cooking you decide to do. We typically made breakfast and lunches (or picnic lunches). A very welcome feature is a clothes washer/dryer, which allowed us to pack more lightly than we otherwise might have done.

The bedroom has a queen bed with a very comfortable mattress that is on the firm side. There is a built-in armoire with three drawers, about a dozen clothes hangers and a canvas hanging closet organizer that serves as extra clothes shelving. The bathroom is small but has all the basics, shower only but no bathtub, and was all we needed.

The apartment is on the fourth floor and is served by two elevators. Although the building entrance opens directly onto Les Rambles, the apartment itself is at the back of the building and faces away from Les Rambles. For this reason, it is very quiet and you don't hear any of the noise from Les Rambles. All the windows feature a double set of blinds, one translucent and one opaque, so you can adjust the light in the apartment any way you want. The bedroom and living room each have an air-conditioning unit and you can set the desired temperature and fan speed on each.

From the apartment you take 20 steps and an elevator ride and you will find yourself on Les Rambles right next door to a large and very complete supermarket called Carrefour, which in all likelihood has everything you will need. And if that isn't enough, you are less than three blocks from the fantastic (and perhaps overwhelming) Mercado de La Boqueria or it is about the same distance to the very large (you can't miss noticing it) El Corte Inglés department store, which also has a series of markets and a high-end supermarket within it. From the apartment building front door you have all the convenience of the Les Rambles location. On one side, behind the apartment building you have El Ravel neighborhood to explore. On the other side of Les Rambles you enter the Gothic quarter. You can walk up Les Rambles past Plaça de Catalunya and enter l'Eixample part of town. From the apartment, you are literally a couple blocks from the L1 and L3 metro lines so you can easily and quickly get to any part of Barcelona using the excellent metro system. For your initial orientation to Barcelona, in Plaça de Catalunya very close to where you get off the Aerobus, there is a major Barcelona tourist information center.

A final word on quietness: the apartment windows actually look out and down to the roof of the Carrefour building three floors below, which is flanked by similar residential buildings on all sides. So in a sense it is like looking down over a plaza with absolute no traffic on it. This is quite different than having a street behind the apartment building and therefore EXTREMELY quiet - check it out on earth or satellite view in google maps).

In summary, we highly recommend this apartment for convenience, location and quietness. Mario is a great guy and is ready and willing to help you in any way he can. All of this added up to the perfect stay in Barcelona for us.

“Perfect Location in Barelona”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

This apartment is right on Las Ramblas, the best place to be in Barcelona. It is on the fourth floor (there are elevators) and it is in the back of the building. That means you don't get the view of Las Ramblas from the apartment, but you don't get the noise either. It was really handy to have a good grocery store, Carrefour, right next door.
The place was clean and well fournished. For example there were air conditioners in both the living room and the bedroom. The wifi worked very well because it was totally dedicated to this one apartment. The kitchen allowed us to prepare most of our meals right there.
Mario was excellent at being at the apartment to greet us when we arrived and to meet us when we wanted to leave. We enjoyed the apartment.

“Ideal apartment in ideal location. Perfecto!”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a very easy review to write. A very cozy well appointed apartment with all the amenities you could want. Wifi, TV, washer drier, air conditioning and immaculately spotless as well.
Centrally located in the city center you can walk or take the subway which is right at the front door. Supermarket downstairs and fabulous restaurants within walking distance.
The building is also well maintained and the apartment owner Mario makes sure you have everything you need to make your stay enjoyable including restaurant recommendations that were totally on the mark.
Forgot to mention the incredibly fair price for the rental.
Highly recommended, will stay there again and refer all my friends.

We were so pleased with this apartment. It looked like the pictures online (I think it was actually better), Mario was very reliable and pleasant, and it was so convenient. Much better than staying in a hotel, you have more space and you can prepare your own food. Great location on La Ramblas, but very quiet. Minutes from the Aerobus stop so easy to get back and forth to the airport. Had a great stay, thanks Mario!
