“Good location”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Situated in a side street with plenty of local bars and restaurants. None of them created a noise problem and by midnight the street was peaceful.
All major attractions are In easy reach.
The apartment has all you need for your stay
However the rugs and living room carpet need cleaning, as does the sofa.
The light switch in the hallway was potentially dangerous and twice live cables were exposed. A temporary, unsatisfactory, repair was made using the broken switch glued/ taped together.
We had a major noise problem on the first night with our upstairs neighbours screaming and shouting at each other till 5 in the morning. I informed the flat owner and he suggested that I called on these people and complained myself.
For all I knew the people might have been violent and I don't speak Spanish.
Whilst I accept that he cannot control the neighbours it is his job to make my stay enjoyable .
Sometimes this entails doing difficult things, such as making the complaint himself on my behalf.
As he is not prepared to look after his paying guests in this way I would not return

Eric, we are sorry that you experienced some issues during your stay. We pride ourselves at providing a comfortable home from home as our other reviews will testify.

You reported the problem with the light switch in the communal hallway and although outside of our apartment and control we did report it immediately to the property maintainer who does appear to have visited and made a temporary repair.

Unfortunately the issue with the neighbour is outside of our control and being located in the UK we explained that there really was no action we could take as we do not have each neighbours contact details. It does appear the neighbours argument was a one off incident.

Our apartment is a residential apartment in a residential block. Renting a private holiday apartment is an independent traveller's option and does not provide on site management. If on site management is required then a hotel would be the preferred option.

We are glad that you enjoyed the stay in our local area and your time in Barcelona.

Kindest regards

We have recently returned from staying in this 'home from home' apartment situated in central Barcelona and, this being our seventh visit, had another fantastic two weeks holiday in this vibrant city.
The apartment is central to everything - a ten minutes walk to the Fountains of Montjuic and the surrounding areas, a similar ten minutes walk to the Gothic Quarter (the Ramblas) and to Port vell with only a two minutes walk to the bus stop that takes you directly to the beaches.
Even after a seventh visit there is something new to find and do, if you wish, for 24 hours a day - and, being placed in the apartment makes doing this so much easier.
The apartment is spotlessly clean has instant hot water for as many showers as you like and all the amenities you could wish for. For us, the major plus is also the street that the apartment is situated on - Carrer del Blai. there is over half a kilometres of cafes, bars, restaurants, small shops etc and, being off the main tourist run in and out of the city, food and drinks are at local prices and not tourist prices. The atmosphere is vibrant and friendly and gives you a real feel of true Spanish family life.One week back and already planning for next year!

“Location Underwhelming”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is the first time I have ever written a less than stellar review for all of the places we have stayed using Trip Advisor around the world... U.S., Europe, Australia, New Zealand, etc.
While not far from place d'Espanya, Montjuic and the metro, the pedestrian street is loud and less than attractive. The apartment is secure, comfortable and well furnished for a six night stay. We were a party of four adults. There were two air conditioning units for the two bedroom apartment Which was insufficient during the summer heat. One of the bedrooms had no air conditioning, only a wall fan. The kitchen and eating. area had a fan but was very warm and not conducive for cooking and dining if the weather is hot. The website advertised the apartment for $156+ € a night and we were charged $1759 for 6 nights. Upon arrival they also wanted a 200€ cash damage deposit that we did not have as my husband had been robbed on the train from the airport. The owner was gracious enough to allow the stay without the cash. However, asking for a cash deposit should be mentioned on the website.
Barcelona is a wonderful city, full of beauty and excitement and we enjoyed our time exploring and visiting the sites. We would have preferred a better living situation.

We are really sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay in our apartment. We pride ourselves in making guests feel welcome and the standard of our accommodation.

The apartment is located on a pedestrian street with lots of cafes and restaurants and the Spanish culture is to sit outside and eat later in the evening and this creates a vibrant atmosphere. This is typical across Barcelona. However the businesses on our street do not close late with the majority closed by midnight and you have the benefit of no traffic noise. The bedroom located street side is double glazed and we have never received a complaint regards street noise before, in fact you will note from the other reviews that other guests see this vibrancy as a benefit.

There are 2 air conditioning units in the apartment and each room has a wall mounted fan and there is also a large portable fan to offer additional flexibility. Barcelona is hot in the summer months.

Regards the price, you booked direct on the site so would have been presented with the total cost including the Holiday lettings booking fee before you confirmed and then paid on-line. We would have been happy to have clarified the pricing had you contacted us before booking. We did subsequently provide you with a breakdown and received no response. Regards the amount you were charged in dollars, of course we have no control over the exchange rate that your credit card company applies to the transaction.

Regards the damage deposit this is normal practice and the damage deposit is shown on line and we also confirmed this in an email to you and also in the check in directions. We were happy to waive the damage deposit in light of the bad news that you had your wallet stolen and also work around that you did not have a mobile phone to contact the check in team.

We really tried despite some of the unexpected challenges around the deposit and the mobile to make your stay as great as possible and are sorry that you did not enjoy the apartment location.

We wish you well.

This apartment is in a great location in Poble Sec. Lots of great restaurants right out the door, including several excellent tapas places.

The crew on the ground are also excellent. Our stay here was perfect - exactly what we were looking for. Montjuic is walking distance, as is the Metro.

We also were travelling with our daughter, and the apartment and location were great for families. We'd definitely stay here again.
