Nice neighbourhood, great flat!
Loved the flat - the layout was great and the location was also really good. I read a few other reviews that mentioned the flat being too far out of the Center of town, but we definitely didn’t feel that way. We liked the neighbourhood vibe and had an easy time getting everywhere we needed. Would stay there again!
Spacious apartment with a great view in a great neighborhood.
I will start with the apartment. It was bright, clean, and comfortable. It had everything I needed to feel at home.
The view is the highlight of the apartment. It’s the kind of view a person doesn’t get tired of looking at, and it is compelling at all hours of the day and night, though the sunrise is unbelievable. Directly out the window is the prominent Torre Glories. Gaze a little to the south and you have a clear view of La Sagrada Familia. If the apartment view isn’t enough, hike to the top of the park behind the apartment for incredible 360 views of the city and mountains.
The neighborhood is outside the tourist center, which I appreciated. I enjoyed watching kids playing roller hockey, soccer, and basketball in the sports facilities in front of the apartment. The shops, bars, cafés, and restaurants are by and for locals. It is a relatively steep, but short hike to the metro station, followed by a 20 minute metro ride to downtown, but it was worth it to me.
Vanessa was great to work with. I told her I will definitely stay in her flat on my next trip to Barcelona.
WOULD OPT FOR A PLACE CLOSER TO CITY CENTER NEXT TIME
Although the apartment was clean, and as described, although the apartment is renovated, it is in an old building. The next time I visit Barcelona I'd look for an apartment in a more convenient neighborhood...Yes, the bus stopped in front, but it's 15 stops to city Center. The metro station was located 1/4 ml. away, down a difficult 1000 ft., 30 degree sloping path (hard walk uphill). In addition, the area is very "blue collar", doesn't have any decent places to eat, and I found the locals to not be very friendly to tourists. I chose this place based on the fact that it was in a "safe" area (which it was), but after visiting many of the central areas of Barcelona, although more crowded, I also found them to be "safe" (never felt threatened), and all of them had a large police presence... these areas are also where all the sights, restaurants and culture are... I'd rather leave an apartment and walk a few blocks to be in the center of things, than spend an hour (round trip) to do so. Nothing really wrong with this place, this is just my view.
Perfect place to stay in Barcelona
The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It contained all the amenities we needed like wifi, washer/dryer, microwave/oven combo, coffee maker, tv & home cinema surround sound and plenty of DVD’s to choose from. The owner, Vanessa, met us upon arrival and was extremely nice and helpful providing lots of tips on the use of the apartment as well as recommendations on places to visit. She gave us a bottle of wine and fresh fruit to enjoy. She also included a binder with instructions for all appliances, local restaurants, etc. There were 3 - 4 markets within a 1-2 minute walk for anything you needed and a fresh produce market right next door with delicious organic fruits and vegetables to choose from. The apartment is within walking distance to a metro stop and is in a quiet and safe neighborhood. But most of all the view is simply amazing all day and all night!!! The last morning we were there we woke up to a beautiful sunrise peeking beyond our spectacular view. We saw many gorgeous parts of Barcelona but wouldn’t have traded our view and close proximity to the city for any other area.
thank you so much for your lovely review! I'm so pleased you had a nice time but I do think it was too short... you must come back!
All the best to both of you,
PS: thanks for leaving everything so tidy!
Great apartment with perfect view!
This is a very nice and newly renovated apartment. Spacious, clean and very well designed. All amenities you need are there. The view from the balcony is great. My previous stays in Barcelona has usually been downtown and then having a view of a dirty alley. This is something completely different. We had a very good time there and enjoyed it a lot. I´ll be happy to come back! Mathias:-)
thank you Mathias! You're welcome back anytime!!
