Wonderful view of the city...public transportation easy and convenient to use. No need for a vehicle with their excellent public system. Wonderful apartment. Antonio will ensure that you have everything you need. Apt located in nice neighborhood with friendly people. Price is reasonable especially considering all that you get.

“A charming, tranquil and truly magical retreat close to the heart of Barcelona!”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Thank you Antonio for making our family holiday so special! This apartment is a gem. Clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. And the pool and view.......stunning! Antonio, our host, was so very charming and helpful greeting us with a warm welcome and a fridge full of basic essentials and the odd treat. The apartment itself is located in a slightly cooler part of the city which provides a welcome relief after the heat of the city. Very easy access to the centre where one can enjoy the beautiful city delights, cheap food and drink and the infectious Catalan culture. We hope to be back!

“Another satisfied customer !”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I will not repeat the other reviews, they are all true.
Some things to ad:
- My wife said the appartment was very clean. I think this was the first time she said so after 25y of travelling. So it's definitively clean.
- The shower is really very good, as Antonio pointed out up-front.
- Very quiet neighbourhood. Since the bedroom is more or less situated in the hill-side, and the matrasses are good, I slept better than at home.

Also 1 less positive remark. Maybe it was because of the rather bad weather-conditions we had, but it was very windy on the terrace. Since we refused to go inside, we sometimes had to put on a fleece (at the end of July) to sit outside in the evening.

“Just as the name says, Magic Place is a very appropriate name”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This has been our second year of spending a part of our holiday in Magic Place. We were made very welcome by Antonio and thoroughly enjoyed our time in this wonderful spacious apartment overlooking the city of Barcelona. Antonio was very helpful from our initial booking inquiry through the time we checked out. The property is well-situated in the hills overlooking the city with the advantage of accessing Barcelona by train which is only a few metres from the apartment. The apartment is lovely decorated (and very clean). Convenient with easy access to the pool (also very clean) and the surrounding seating areas and nice sunbeds.

“Perfect bliss!”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I really couldn't believe that this place was going to live up to the reviews and pictures - it seemed to good to be true! However the Magic Place is truly marvellous and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone staying in Barcelona.

The location is ideal being a perfect distance from the centre - it really is so easy to get there and we loved riding the funicular every day!

The apartment itself if furnished to an excellent standard throughout with the most comfy beds, lovely large shower and everything you need. But the real showstopper is the pool! It is shared apparently but we had it to ourselves the whole time we were there, I would go so far as to say the best view in the whole city! The only problem is we found it very hard to ever leave to go and do some sightseeing.

Antonio was a kind, generous and welcoming host. We are already planning our return trip. Thank you.
