The Catalunia region

A great base for a Barcelona trip, 5 out of 5

Review Submitted: 04 October 2012 Date of Stay: September 2012 I don't think you could ask for a better location than this - in the heart of the Gothic quarter in the tiny historic streets. There are bars and restaurants everywhere and transport further afield is easy. Train from the airport with one change gets you to Estacio Franca - only 5 minutes walk away.

The flat was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. There was some street noise at night but it didn't bother me - if you stay in the heart of a city you don't come for tranquility.All considered - hard to fault.


5 out of 5 Review Submitted: 31 August 2012 Date of Stay: August 2012 Great stay!

Location location location! Great place to stay. Loved the apartment and the area. So much to do. I felt very safe and the apartment was clean and as pictured. Claire and Jordi were very professional and wonderful to work with. My husband and I are hoping to come back and stay a few more days in the future...Great restaurants and and places in every nook and cranny. This area is so bohemian and artsy. Love it!!!!


Nice Large Apartment in the Centre of Barcelona 4 out of 5. Review Submitted: 20 July 2012 Date of Stay: July 2012

We stayed here with 5 people. The Apartment is large and offers enough luxery to enjoy a comfortble stay. It is spacious, has french baclonies all around and was clean and cool. (mid summer)

It is on the 3rd floor. Can advice the apartment if you want to stay in the very center of Barcelona and don't mind climbing stairs.


Great location

Review Submitted: 11 August 2011 Date of Stay: July 2011

This apartment is great! We spent 2 weeks in Barcelona and we had a wonderfull time. Me & my daughters loved the huge bathroom with 2 showers, the open kitchen and the comfortable sofa. The roof terrace is great at night after a hot summer day. In the neighborhood are good restaurants, famous museums and a market with delicious fresh food. We didn't need a car and walked to the beach in 15 minutes, we rent bicycles for sightseeing. We enjoyed our stay and we would rent the apartment again when we come back.

Thanks to Claire for the perfect organization.

"Large well equipt apartment"

this apartment is correctly described, as being large & open plan. its light & airy but quite overlooked, even thought this wasn't a problem, as most of the surrounding apartment during your stay were empty.
what this does offer is it's location in Barcelona, once you figure out the narrow streets of la ribera & get your bearings, this apartment couldn't be more conveniently placed. only a 10 min walk from main Catalonia plaza, 5 mins from les rambla.
during stay had a couple of issues, one with cleanliness of bedding/water temp & the other was when the safe locking it's self, but both problems were sorted within 1 hr by Jordi, the local helper (very helpful & pleasant)
sat on roof terrace for a short time, nothing other than the spring temperature spoilt this, would imagine would be a nice place to relax on a warm summers night.
would we stay again? not really, but if you are a large group (we were only 2 people) it would be an idea base to stay.
