This is a perfect apartment for a family or group of friends, ideally located in the centre of Barcelona. From our first enquiry via TripAdvisor, Fabio was really helpful and, even during our stay, he would check in with us to make sure that everything was in order. We arrived later than expected due to the lack of clear directions to the train station at the airport but he was very understanding and kept telling us not to worry. We discovered the next day that we had only been left hand towels but Alfredo dropped off some bath towels that same afternoon.
There is a grocery store next door and two express supermarkets just around the corner. Location was important to us. The Sagrada Familia metro stop (get out at the Parque Gaudi exit) is about 5 minutes' walk away. If you are coming from the airport, the cheapest way to get there is to buy a ten journey ticket (which can be used by different people), get the R2 Nord to Sants (two trains an hour) and then change to the metro L5 (direction Vall D'Hebron) to Sagrada Familia. Alternatively, you can go to Passeig De Gràcia and change to the metro L2 (direction Badalona). This will cost you €1,05 for each person and the train journey takes about 20-25 minutes to Sants / Passeig de Gràcia. If you prefer to walk and take in the sites, it takes about 35 minutes to walk to the Barrio Gótico (take the Sandemans Free Walking Tour on your first day for a great introduction to Barcelona and Catalunya) and 45 minutes to the Park Guell as it's uphill. A visit to La Sagrada Familia is a must!
Loved it!! My family and I enjoyed our stay. Fabio was so kind to meet us at a restaurant when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the apartment !! The apartment was perfect for us, all appliances worked, bathrooms and bedrooms very clean! Location was perfect, close the Sagrada Familia Catheral. The market right next door was very convenient!
This apartment is very close to Sagrada Familia as well as a supermarket and neighborhood restaurants.
The apartment building is very safe with access to the building by key .
The kitchen is well equipped. The bedroom pictures and bathrooms are accurate and layed out well.
Fabio is very easy to work with and reachable.
My negatives would be that the living room couch needs to be replaced. The leather or leather like coating is peeling off so there is a throw cover.However, it slides down as you sit on it.
Also, the rug in front of the couch needs to be cleaned or replaced.
All other furnishings were fine.
Fabio is a lovely host with a spacious comfortable apartment in a fantastic position around the corner from Sacrada and central to Barcelona underground and great restaurants. This is an ideal base from which to explore all that the city has to offer and you couldnt ask for a more caring and genuine host than Fabio. We hope to visit again from Australia.
Perfect location 2 minutes from Sagrada. Spacious, well equipped apartment with all you need for your stay in Barcelona. Fabiano even welcomed us with cold drinks! Highly recommend for a family stay in beautiful Barcelona.
Quick and helpful communication with Fabio and Alfredo, definitely recommend! Very clean home, very comfy bed, close to Sagrada and metro, easy access to everything.
The location of the apartment is perfect, you can easily get to anywhere in the city.
It's all you need, so it was a perfect stay.
Thanks Fabio, thanks Alfredo!
The condo is located very close to the Sagrada Familia church and it takes no more than 15 minutes to walk to the church. There are several restaurants/cafes and small convenience stores just as you walk out of the building. The owners were very helpful and always had fast responses by email. The only issue we had was due to the heat wave that hit Barcelona when we were there and only one room was air conditioned. The owner did explain to me that the other two rooms will have air conditions installed soon. We would certainly return to this condo if we needed a place to stay in Barcelona.
