"Superb, everything we could possibly need, with friendly information too."
This second floor apartment was spacious; clean and tidy when we arrived, and the representative was waiting to greet us and show us round. Everything we might have needed was there, many things we did not need to use but useful in case, ie candles; needles; extra quilts and cushions. There was even a little food to get us through until we could shop properly, though there are all sorts of shops just minutes from the apartment, it's in a very good location, also very close to the Metro and buses. A car isn't necessary there at all, and indeed it's not easy to find somewhere close to park, though we used a local free car park. Although not in the spec, there is air-conditioning in the living room, which was very effective, with fans in every room. The owner was easy to communicate with and very polite; friendly and helpful. All in all it was a really great place to stay, and if we return to Barcelona again, would not hesitate to book here again.
Thank you so much for your review! I'm so glad you had a good stay! All the best to you, Leonor

"A comfortable bright quiet place to stay only a few minutes from the centre by metro"
This is a brilliant place to stay in Barcelona! Away from the bustle of the centre but within easy reach by metro. As the local area is residential there are plenty of good food shops close by. The area has a friendly buzz by day and is quiet at night. The flat itself is bright, roomy and comfortable with a recently fitted kitchen and bathroom. It also has a roof terrace which is ideal for an evening drink overlooking the rooftops (or for drying clothes!). We can't wait to return.

"Luminous and very spacious flat, in a lively neighborhood!"
I had a great time in Barcelona for my holidays, and this flat helped me a lot. It's located in a very nice spot in the city, you'll find almost anything you need. Well equipped kitchen to cook nice local dishes and a roof terrace to enjoy them. Near to the appartement there is a market where you'll find a broad spectrum of local products. Don't miss it!!!

"Comfortable, clean and quiet at night!!"
We (family of 4) stayed for 2 weeks in this flat last February and found it very comfortable. We loved being in a local district of Barcelona, and felt part of Spanish way of life. At the same time, it was very quiet at night and slept very comfortably!. The flat is bright and spacious, has been recently renovated and it was very pleasant because everything was new and very clean. It was great to have some supplies available on arrival (sugar, tea, olive oil, salt, toilet paper, etc.) Thank you! The roof terrace was also wonderful! And with the metro we were very quickly in central Barcelona. Would definitely recommend it! And will definitely go back in the summer!

"True picture of Spain, Barcelona, Excellent place to get the taste of Barcelona"
When you stay in this lovely property you get to know true Spanish life. A stroll away from subway, at the heart of typical Barcelona neighborhood. In the morning you see housewives walking to various local shops to buy daily needs, chatting, maybe gossiping!!. In the afternoon men are having their after work coffee in the neighborhood coffee shops and at night everyone at the local bar. Property is extremely clean and functional. Rooftop terrace is fantastic place to relax and sip a glass of wine in the evening after a tiring day of touristing around. Service was excellent. Staying in this place left a lasting impression on us. Would love to go back again. It is definitely recommended.

"A real find"
This flat is very comfortable , practical and well equipped for self catering. It seemed as if the kitchen and bathroom are newly installed and the whole flat was spotlessly clean. It is in a great location -not a touristy area but a bustling local area with superb food shops on the doorstep and only 20 minutes by metro from the centre of town. For me a real plus was that the neighbourhood was bustling during the day but quiet at night . I was staying there with a friend but I can't wait to go back with my family . The pictures on the site and the owner's description are completely accurate.
