“Brilliant Flat with Taste”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Wonderful Flat to Relax after Enjoying Wonderful Barcelona. The flat was previously a Home and Tastefully finished and run by a wonderfully helpful Isabel (landlady). I would prefer to keep it a secret and for us ONLY:)!

“Stay Here!”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The location is excellent allowing us to walk everywhere we wanted to go, though it is a bit of a haul to some places like the Sagrada Familia. It's easy to get a taxi, though. Good restaurants and an OK supermarket are nearby. The apartment is very nicely renovated, comfortable, clean and quiet, and used to be Isabel's family home. There are several travel guides in a cabinet, but only a few English language satellite TV stations, all news. Didn't check out the Catalan/Spanish ones.
Isabel was a gracious and thoughtful host, waiting for us when we arrived. She is charming and answered all our questions, even the ones we didn't know we had, and had juice, coffee, wine, milk and chocolate waiting for us. When my husband fell and broke his wrist while navigating a rain slicked sidewalk, she and her husband were very helpful in directing us to a good hospital, even offering to come into town to help us out. In and out of the emergency room in 2 hours. Very good care by an English speaking doctor, 4 X-rays, medication, setting the bone and a cast for 430 Euros (full price) at a private hospital! We were impressed. Be aware that the tiled sidewalks of Barcelona get very slippery when wet.
Thank you Isabel, for a wonderful stay. We will definitely stay in your apartment again if we can, the next time we are in your lovely city.

“Luxurious, spacious, very modern”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This apartment is extremely attractive from the moment you first walk in. The neighborhood is safe and fairly quiet, and reasonably close walk to subway. Excellent kitchen and master bedroom with en suite bath and balcony. Just great. The second bedroom is very basic with the bath in the hall.

The living room is quite nice, and has a balcony. Anybody would be extremely happy to stay here.

“Visit number 6 to Sweet Home Barcelona”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Barcelona is our most favourite summer holiday destination and for 6 years we have visited this marvellous city. Our visits here are always enjoyable, for visiting old haunts and discovering new places, and most importantly, because we are hooked on "our" favourite apartment. The location, the comfort, the amenities, the excellent attention to detail and helpfulness of the hosts keep us coming back for more. We have recommended this property to a friend, who in turn has stayed here on two occasions. Barcelona is a treasure trove of restaurants, super shopping and awesome architecture, all in easy walking distance of the apartment. Even the beaches can be reached by walking, otherwise the bus service is regular and convenient. I can't imagine any visitor to Barcelona and SHB not enjoying their stay here.

“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1

What a great find this was! The flat has been renovated to a high standard, is luxurious (especially the main bedroom and ensuite) as indicated, was spotlessly clean and Isabel, the owner, is delightful. The extra touches - flowers on the bench, cava, orange juice, water etc in the 'frig, plenty of towels - are not expected in a holiday rental, but we very much appreciated them!
My husband and I stayed here for a week with our adult son and his fiancée. We paid, so we got the big room, but the smaller one with the small bathroom was perfectly adequate. The enclosed balcony is a lovely place for breakfast (good croissants close by), the living/dining area is very comfortable and the kitchen has everything one could need.
The location is terrific - in the Eixample neighbourhood, four blocks from Passeig de Gracia, 10-15 minutes' walk from the old town/el Born districts (where narrow streets with shops selling good quality locally made goods are lovely to wander around and get lost in) and close to plenty of good restaurants/tapas bars.
The 8 euro taxi fare to Park Guell was well worth it (it's up quite a steep hill) and we walked slowly back via a lunch stop and visit to the Sagrada Familia.
Isabel provided comprehensive notes about everything - the flat, the area, the sights, restaurants etc etc.
I cannot recommend this flat highly enough.

(Note that bakery and larger supermarket on C/Ausias Marc are closed on Sundays. Also, taxi to the airport on a fairly quiet Sunday morning cost 40 euros. Consider airport bus which leaves regularly from Plaza de Catalunya, 15 minutes' walk with luggage. This is what our son did).
