This apartment: it is pristine and stylish with the bonus of a terrace. The showers are terrific (there are three of them! every bathroom has an en-suite) and the beds are really comfortable.
The location: if you want to be in the middle of everything, this is the place for you. Literally two steps from Placa Reial - an elegant square off La Rambla, filled with restaurants, bars, palm trees and a few hawkers - and on the edge of Bari Gottic, where there are more tiny lanes and little squares, jam-packed with tapas bars. The tapas bar right opposite the apartment (Biarritz 1881) is tremendous.
Because you are in the middle of everything, there is noise. Despite the double glazing and shutters, the noise does come through, especially late at night when revellers are wandering around. However, I am light sleeper - the kids seemed to sleep through it all. And I would say that it's worth it for a few days city-break in a tremendous location.
If I were staying in Barcelona longer, I'd probably go for an area which is less busy, like Exiample, but for a short break you are at the heart of everything here. …
Motor Yacht Dandy
Absolutely AMAZING!! Exceeded expectations
I booked the Elmo T for my sister as a surprise for her hen do. There was a group of 7 of us. We have been extremely excited about this break and when we arrived all of our expectations were not only met but exceeded! The yacht provided everything that we need to make our weekend enjoyable and comfortable. The bedrooms and living space are spacious and well kept. Sergio has been a huge help both before arriving and during our stay making sure that we had a brilliant time! He answered all of our questions and took time to ensure that we were having a good time. I cannot recommend this yacht and Sergio enough. We arrived back on Sunday morning and by the evening were already looking to see if we can book again! This was such an amazing experience. …
NEW! RIGHT ON PLAZA CATALUNYA!
Wow!! Beautiful apartment right in the heart of barcelona
The pictures are amazing but they still don't do this place justice! We couldn't believe it when we arrived! Absolutely beautiful, well decorated, perfectly furnished. There are 5 good sized double rooms that can all be converted to twins. The master bedroom is huge with fantastic views of catalunya.
The three bathrooms are more than adequate for 10 guests. Josep was very helpful throughout the booking process and sorted out taxis for us from the airport (about €40 per taxi). Josep's father was there to show us around, he was the most lovely man and answered all our questions. They had left champagne, chocolates, cokes, bottled water and bread for us, such a nice touch.
To enter the apartment, you will see a large black door (more like a gate). If it isn't open, buzz floor 5, no 2 and he will let you up. The lift works fine but it is only small so we kept having to go up in three goes!
Plenty to do around the apartment, and the tavern right next door has live music every night and is a great night out. The one downside would be the noise. Obviously it is to be expected in such a busy area, but just be aware if you're a very light sleeper to bring ear plugs.
Thanks again Josep (and your dad) for a wonderful stay. …
