“Do not stay here unless they renovate the bathroom”
Reviewed September 18, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Starting with the positives! Great location and fantastic view of Sagrada Familia. The apartment has lots of space. Two bedrooms, air conditioning (not in one of the bedrooms though), a full kitchen, spacious living room/dining room combo. The office staff was very helpful. You do have to stop at their office to pick up they key - but they did help arrange a car service from the train. So that was very helpful.

The cons - I believe this add says their is a washer and a dryer - there is no dryer. Not a show stopper but FYI. The AC works great and there is a fan so if you leave the smaller bedroom door open it cools off in there as well. There are two bathrooms - one with a toilet and a sink and the other off of the master bedroom. I have to say this is the worst bathroom that I have seen in a rental. It smelled like urine, the cabinets were held together by duct tape and the shower had fallen off of the wall into the filthy dirty tub. You had to hold the sprayer up to rinse off and shower. We dreaded going to take a shower in it every night - it truly was terrible. The kitchen is fine - the place overall really does need some updating - but I could have lived with it - the bathroom is a big NO.

“Affordable accommodation with breathtaking views”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I had done lots of research and knew the bathroom was less than perfect (which I agree with, it needs a renovation) but it does work and we appreciated the space for our family of 5.

The views are spectacular and we loved the location. We love to walk and from here, that's what we did. We only got taxis to and from the airport. The area was well serviced for supermarkets etc and we always felt safe, something we were thrilled about.

The second bedroom has one single bed and a single trundle underneath. It's a small room but we managed for 8 nights as we were on holidays in an amazing city. We wanted to be out experiencing things.

There is no dryer but I found things dried quite quickly using the drying racks so no problem for us.

Finally, the management team, in particular Karina, were outstanding in their assistance from before we arrived when my husband was stranded in France, to when I had a mishap with a key (my fault entirely). I couldn't speak more highly of them and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

“Outstanding Views from Balcony”
Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This apartment is very well located in Central Barcelona and especially on the third level directly opposite the famous Sangrada Familia cathedral. The views from the Balcony is stunning.

The apartment however is a little small for a family of six people and ideal for four people in family maximum. The bathrooms are in need of a facelift and touch up. The master bathroom wall grouting is stained but the layout is fine. The lift to go up three floor was too small to take large suitcases and that was a great inconvenience for check in and check out.

The management company however, is very responsive to our requirements and when our bathroom toilet flush was spoilt, they fixed the problem with 24 hours without fuss. This is appreciated as we do not speak Spanish and was our first visit to Barcelona.

In conclusion, we would recommend this apartment to any small family seeking world class views at affordable prices.

“Fabulous Apartment, Fabulous View”
Reviewed December 10, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The epitome of perfection. Check in was fast, apartment was immaculate. Easy access to the metro, good restaurants and groceries within a few blocks, and the Sagrada Familia filled the view from all the windows. I wish we had booked for longer. Any postcard you get of the church will have this apartment in the picture. We will return to Barcelona because of this apartment.

“Amazing view and comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

One of the highlights of Barcelona was to be able to see Gaudi's architectural works, so that made the view of La Sagrada Familia from the apartment window the most compelling feature of this place. However that wasn't the only good part of this place. Once inside the apartment, we found that we were comfortable and able to relax. The living room/dining room were spacious and airy, and we enjoyed spending time there. The main bedroom was also light and comfortable. The smaller bedroom was perfectly fine for our teenage son.

The location -- across from a park and steps away from the metro, restaurants, supermarket, and, of course, Gaudi's cathedral -- was ideal. It took only 15 minutes or so to get to the Gothic Quarter, La Rambla, beaches, etc., but we were happy to be a bit removed from the noise and activity of those areas.

We didn't use the air conditioning at all, although the temperatures were in the high 80s (Fahrenheit), so it would have been nice to have ceiling fans in the living room and large bedroom (there was one in the small bedroom). This is a minor complaint, though.

The property management office (Barcelona For Rent) was located a 10-minute walk from the apartment, and they were very helpful in orienting us to the apartment and surrounding area. The WiFi worked well, and the TV was great for keeping up with the World Cup. The elevator was *tiny* but functional for transporting luggage or those tired after walking around the city.

We would highly recommend this to anyone looking to experience living in a neighborhood while enjoying Barcelona. The view of Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia is amazing!
