The owner, Ricardo, was easy to communicate with via TripAdvisor, flexible with check in/out times, and gave us a tour of the apartment on arrival. Even had some water, beer and snacks stocked on arrival, very thoughtful :)
As a family of 5 we really enjoyed this apartment in the middle of the Eixample neighborhood of Barcelona. Hands down the best area of the city, tree lined streets, small park across the from the apt, grocery store downstairs with everything you could need, great restaurants on the same block, about 15-25 mins walking distance to shopping, Gothic Quarter, Sagrada Família, beach, etc. We didn’t use the metro but there’s plenty of stations nearby and also bike rentals on the street down the block.
The apartment building is safe and secured, well taken care of entry way, elevator makes it easy to get luggage up to the 2nd floor. The apartment has a huge patio with outside sofa and dining area which gets a nice breeze. Comfy area in family room for all of us, SmartTV and connected our Netflix easily, fast WiFi, kitchen had everything you could need, and bathroom was large and clean. Washing machine and drying rack (worked great!). Since we visited in the summer, it was pretty warm in Barcelona during the day, it did cool off at night a bit. There’s 1 AC unit located in the family room.
Overall, we would definitely stay here again and recommend to all of our friends and family.
