My son and I stayed here for 3 days. The flat is as described...beautifully decorated and kitchen well equipped. 5 minute walk to Metro with easy access to all Barcelona has to offer. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
The description and pictures of the apartment were accurate. It is a spacious 3 bedroom apt and the 5 of us fit comfortably in the space. The place was clean, warm, nicely decorated and well equipped for our needs. Internet service was good. The neighborhood was quiet even though people were out and about throughout the day. It was very close to the metro station which was convenient for going to the city center.
There aren't any good restaurants in this area so you will have to eat near the city center to find places. I suggest that the owners provide a list of a few good places to eat in the city center or other areas in their welcome guide. Communication with Marcos was good and he responded to messages as well as phone calls in a timely manner. The check-in process was an issue as I had pick up the key from a bar and no one working at the bar had any clue what I was talking about. After calling the owner and waiting no longer than a few minutes someone arrived with the key. Overall the stay was good but the check in process could use some improvement.
We had a fantastic time in this apartment with our 2 year old daughter. The apartment was in a really convenient place near metro stations and supermarkets. We could easily get to anywhere in the city.The toys were a lovely touch and adored by my daughter. The accomodation was really well thought out and beautifully clean. The coffee machine was a welcome luxury on a returning home from long days sightseeing. Marcos and Raquel were very quick to reply to messages and Raquel very welcoming even on our late arrival. Thank you for an amazing stay we will be recommending you to others!
The apartment is close to the Bac de Roda metro station, which is very convenient. It's about 25 minutes travel time to the convention centre. Many shops are just outside, the cafe across the street sells fresh baguette bread in the morning.
The beds are good, kitchen is well equipped, optical fibre internet is blazing fast. Dishwasher and washing machine available. Cartridges for coffee maker are also included.
The key was handed over by someone who did not speak english, however this was not an issue.
A few things to consider:
- some street noise in one of the bedrooms
- some noise from the neighbors can be heard through the wall
- kitchen is missing a few items for cooking
- stove is difficult to turn on (press the lower two buttons for a long time?)
- shower is leaking a bit
- no foreign TV channels
- only two seats in the kitchen
We had a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend this apartment for up to four people (may be too small for 6).
We had a really enjoyable stay here, the apartment is very close to a metro as well and a grocers and general store overy the road which we found very handy. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked (we particularly enjoyed the nesspresso machine!). Overall we had a really great stay, Marcos is very friendly and stayed up late to let us in as our plane was delayed, even giving us lots of local knowledge and tips.
We stayed at Raquel & Marcos apartment for 8 days and were very pleased with the accommodations! There was three of us, all who had a wonderful time and were very comfortable during our stay.
In the apartment we all had our own bedrooms with nice beds, the living room was a good size with TV and internet, the kitchen had a wonderful coffee maker and nice size refrigerator and the bathroom shower had the best water pressure.
It was in a great neighborhood location with many food shops, and the subway (purple line L2) was 2 minutes walk away which was very close and convenient to many of the Barcelona sites.
Raquel & Marcos were great hosts and I highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone! We hope to book with them again sometime in the future on a return visit to Barcelona.

Myself, girlfriend and a few of our friends stayed in the apartment for 3 nights in March. We arrived a little later than expected as on arrival we were met by Marcos who must have been there for a while (sorry again). On arrival Marcos was very friendly showing us about the rooms, the facilities and how to work the heating, also advised where to go for food and drinks.
The apartment was comfortable and cosy and had everything we needed for our stay. The apartment has wifi which was brilliant as it allowed us to check directions and prep before heading out and not occurring data roaming charges.
The apartment is just around from the metro which takes you to all major links and tickets can be bought in the station.
Overall very please with the apartment as like all other reviews, no complaints at all and felt very welcomed. No hesitation in booking again.
