Away from the crowds
This property was almost perfect for my husband and I, our daughter and granddaughter. Re the check-in-our daughter's flight was delayed, which caused her and us to miss the check-in deadline, so we were charged a penalty (which we knew before hand). What with having to send passport, flight info, etc. and call from the airport upon arrival, I felt it was a fairly complicated check-in.
In addition to going over all of the apartment amenities and rules, Carlos also made a very nice booklet of restaurants to sample, which we used to good advantage.
There were a few cons- one was the lack of air conditioning in the tiny second bedroom. It had some shelves that could not hold a suitcase - no closet - and a huge window into the apartment well. which when opened, carried all of the apartment dweller's conversations up to the room. Two beds filled this room, which was really only big enough to have had one bed. It was fine for my daughter and granddaughter to snuggle in and visit and dress out of luggage laid out in the hall and in the second bathroom, but would not have been OK for my son-in-law, who would have wanted room for his luggage and to dress in this second bedroom.- and to not have to keep the door open in order to keep the room cool.
The ensuite bathroom has a treacherous tub, with no grab bars or mat, and the step-in and out was perilous. The queen bed filled the masterbed room with so little room on the sides that my husband immediately injured his toe on the frame, trying to hug the wall, getting to the bathroom.
We were asked to turn off the air conditioning during the day, which was a mistake, as the one day we did, it took a whole evening and overnight for the apartment to cool down!
The elevator did not work one day, which meant a six flight hike down the steps. The super fixed it before we came back, as we had been given his phone number, thanks to Carlos.
We enjoyed being able to eat breakfast and a couple of light dinners and evening snacks, and to fix a picnic for our Montserrat excursion in the well-equipped kitchen. Having a wash machine and a rack to hang clothes as well as lines outside the window was a real plus during the super hot month of August.
Best of all, after the crowds of the day, we so appreciated returning to good neighborhood restaurants and a quiet, cool place to recuperate.
The TV was too complicated to use. We streamed on our smart phones.
Clean and cozy in a nice area within walking distance to the Sagrada Familia. Building has an unique older elevator for those who find stairs challenging. Grocery and bakery close by.
Victor and his family group were good guest. comunicative as also they leave the apartment in good conditions. I`ll be happy to receive them a next time.
Apartment is in a great area. Walking distance to La Sagrada Familia.Metro and buses close by. Apartment itself is in need of much attention. Living room furniture is old, uncomfortable and covered up by cheap furniture throws. "Patio" furniture is old, shaky and uncomfortable . Window coverings on the patio are filthy, threadbare and tattered. Dining room chairs have the padding coming out of all the cushions and have been covered up with cheap cushions. Air conditioner in the main bedroom doesn't work, main bathroom glass shower door doesn't fit, leaks, needs replacing. Cracked and chipped dishes in the kitchen. Three frying pans are in absolutely disgraceful condition and need to be thrown out and replaced. Second shower room is so small it's almost useless, we refused to use the shower it is so cramped. Second bedroom is very small and has only one single bed in it (not two as shown in the pictures), we used it just for storing suitcases etc. as there's just the two of us. A family with children would have difficulty. It could be a wonderful apartment if the owner(s) paid attention to it. Carlos, the manager, is superb. All our dealings with him were first class, and he's a really nice man too. We don't think he is the owner though. We're sure if he were this place would be way better. Pictures on the listing are very flattering to say the least. Having said all that, Barcelona is wonderful and we had a great time there. The apartment area is great, good grocery stores around the corner (we recommend the organic one). Good restaurants nearby. Highly recommend the Ferrum Restaurant (reservations are a good idea) just down Carrer de Corsega, 10 minute walk from the apartment.
Thanks for your comments about the service and the location, however as is not comun receive a long list of fail`s, to avoid a confussion, I`m confirming you the AC always had worked fine and as I have informed you at your arrival, the Window coverings were replaced inmediatly after your reservation. For the same, we will check the real condiion of everything else you mention.
Quirky but nice
Very affordable but needed an extra train to get to MWC at FIRA.
Good value for a great location
The apartment was very spacious and comfortable. Carlos met us and explained everything we needed to know about the apartment for a comfortable stay. The location was perfect for sightseeing. It is within walking distance of the Sagrada Familia and many other sites such as La Pedrera and Casa Battlo. Metro stops are nearby and the system is very easy to use. Great restaurants are nearby so there is no need to venture over to Passeig De Gracia where prices can be higher. Our favorite, La Ramona, was right around the corner. The apartment was generally quiet since it is toward the back of the building, however if you are in the smaller bedroom, you can easily hear noises next door and in the hallway. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. All in all though, we had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this apartment. You will definitely feel like a local!
Thank you for your review, especially comments on the advantages of the location, your favorite restaurant in the neighborhood and tranquility which means an inner apartment; as the property will surely take note of your observation.
Comfortable apartment, great location.
We spent a week in this apartment with its great location; walking distance to Sagrada Familia, many restaurants and bars. Two good grocery stores nearby. The apartment was comfortable, the large closet in the master bedroom was a great place to store luggage. The second bedroom was VERY small, only space for the two single beds and a small shelf unit. The two bathrooms were convenient, one on the small side but the one in the master bedroom was very adequate. Kitchen was very well equipped and the supply of household products (towels, bathroom tissue, cleaning supplies, dish and washing powder) came in handy. The TV has lots of English speaking channels and was a welcome addition to the apartment as we were able to keep up with current events. Lavinia met us upon our arrival and toured the apartment with us, making sure we were comfortable and had no questions. The little sun room off the living room was a nice place to rest with a glass of wine after a day of city touring. The quirky elevator was an adventure but very welcome as the apartment is on the 4th floor. We would stay here again should we return to Barcelona.
Thanks for your review and your comments about the caractheristic and advantage of the apartment with it sunny living room, the location, the neighbourhood, our service as also your special description about of the traditional elevator. It would be a pleasure to receive you again.
O apartamento fica em uma localização central, na fronteira do tradicional bairro de Gracia, onde você pode encontrar todo o tipo de serviço e em apenas cinco ruas da Igreja da Sagrada Família, e a 7 minutos de metrô da cidade histórica central e com fácil acesso a muitos locais de interesse.
