David the owner is fantastic from start to finish, he organised a taxi to pick us up from the airport with a car seat for my daughter and met us on arrival he spent some time with us explaining the area the local shops,restaurants,metro,bus stops and beeches he then took us into the apartment showed us round explaining everything, had a high chair and travel cot for my daughter,he has also got in some essentials like milk,coffee,tea,wine,fruit it was just such a lovely welcome,he then took us to a market that is on once a month with his wife and twins and we had such a lovely time amazing market, David is so kind and helpful and has a beautiful family,on our first night there my daughter took a temperature and we had no calpol with us i rang David to ask him would any Pharmacy's be open David very kindly drove over and took my husband to the pharmacy and back and came in to make sure our daughter was ok,he was so so good,he always kept in contact to make sure we were ok and had everything we needed,it was just so nice to know we had somebody close by if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this apartment,we had a lovely holiday in a beautiful apartment.
On arrival David the owner took the time to show us around the apartment and took us over the road for a coffee and explained all about the area and the interesting places to visit.
The apartment was clean and well equipped everything you needed for a comfortable stay and left us basic provisions like tea, coffee, milk, bread and jam, Also bowl full of fruit and 2 bottles of wine were a nice touch. We have stayed in a lot of apartments over the years and not experienced the great hospitality which David gave us. The apartment was in a quiet location, no traffic with a supermarket nearby and a metro ten minutes walk away. For beach lovers there was a lovely sandy beach five minutes walk away.
As per previous reviews, this apartment is as described. Very comfortable with all the amenities, close to the CCIB and easily manageable in getting the metro or bus. Very quiet as well. David will take away any concerns you may have in his communications with you. A great place to stay.
This apartment at La Selva de Mar is amazing. It is fully furnished and comes with all amenities you can think of. The apartment is bright and comfortable and tastefully done up. The owner, David is an extremely friendly, helpful and generous person who was thoughtful enough to stock everything including groceries, toiletries, magazines, DVDs, games etc. He was kind enough to explain in depth about the city, restaurants, places to visit etc. We would like to thank David for his wonderful hospitality and we will surely visit again!!!
Note: This has nothing to do with the apartment but I would advise all future visitors in Barcelona to be extra cautious while walking in the streets. Though the city is relatively safe and does not report high crimes, it does have a large percentage of pickpocketing incidents. We would warn all visitors of distractions by pickpockets and to be careful especially around tourist spots and metros.
The apartment was exactly as described and David the owner was really helpful. From our first enquiry everthing was really easy. The apartment had everything you could possibly need and David was generous with detergents etc, he also supplied us with wine, fruit, milk, tea, coffee etc as well as lots of Christmas goodies. Thank you David! Lol
David gave us lots of advice about where to go and how to get about the city and was also available if we needed anything else.
As well as being clean, and comfortable the apartment was in a perfect location. Within five minutes there were a supermarket, 24 hour grocery stores, bars and restaurants. Within a ten minute walk there is a big shopping mall/hypermarket, the beach, the metro/bus and also Poblanou which was a little town in itself. We really liked Poblanou. It has a supermarket and two big streets of bread shops (yum!) butchers, fishmongers, cafes, bars, restaurants and every kind of small shop you can think of. It even had a Whole Food kind of shop. Everyone was really friendly and the whole area had a nice atmosphere.
The apartment was quite and the area was safe and clean. We used the nearby metro or walked and all the main sites were easy to get to from the apartment. I really cannot recommend it enough.
We had a really relaxing time and will be back.
A great place to stay in Barcelona. The apartment was clean and tidy and had everything one would need during a vacation. The location is great. The MRT and Tram station is only about 5 minutes walk away. The bus stop is just around the corner from the apartment. The Diagonal Mar (Mall) and conference center is 10 minutes walk. And if you love the beach it is only a few minutes away. If you feel you don't want to cook, there are a number of "Tapas" cafes near by. If you like Chinese food, the Wok Chow Restaurant near the MRT is a good place to go to. All you can eat for 23 Euros for 2 people.
David, our host was great. He went out of his way to make our stay in Barcelona a memorably one. He treated us to a huge bowl of fruit and food supplies when we arrived. For over an hour he showed us on a map where to go and visit. He even helped us organize our transport back to the airport after our stay. My wife and I have travelled to a number of places around the world and stayed in various apartments, and no other host has every treated us like David. A big thank you goes out to him. I highly recommend David and his 2 bedroom apartment for all those who are looking for a great place to stay in Barcelona.
