We stayed in the apartment at Paseo de Gracia at the end of May, 2012. After a week of hotels, it was like having our own oasis in the most beautiful part of the city. The location is perfect, close to the center of the old city, but far enough from the rowdy crowds. We could walk everywhere from there, and for excursions, the subway is literally steps away. The apartment was spacious, very well appointed, and very comfortable. The kitchen was modern, and had plenty of room for all 4 of us. The bathrooms were large and modern as well. We would highly recommend this apartment as a great alternative to a hotel.

We stayed here with our party of 6 (my wife, me, mother and 3 kids.) It was very easy to get to from the airport. It was very clean and met our needs well. We only did some very basic cooking in the kitchen but everything worked well. The location is on a very elegant, yet busy, street in Barcelona. The city truly does not sleep at night, but this is part of it’s allure. It is about 3 blocks to Placa de Catalunya and the start of La Ramblas. The Metro station is also right in front of the building. There are many nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Carmen was very easy to work with. Her daughter met us at the apartment when we arrived to show us how everything works. The concierge helped us get a taxi for our ride to the train station. Everyone was extremely helpful.

We just returned from a five night stay at this property and can’t find enough wonderful things to say. The apartment is located in a beautiful building, was very clean and well maintained, attractively decorated and offered all the comforts of home. There are big windows that open out onto a balcony that allows you to soak up the city. The location: Pas. Gracia is an upscale avenue with many shops and restaurants, everything is there that you could need and you are within walking distance to many major sites. The Metro was right outside the front door, train station two blocks away(highly recommend a day trip to Tarragona) and Plaza Catalunya was only two block away where you can catch the touring bus( excellent way to see the city). We also were able to take the Aerobus from the airport to the Plaza and walk to the apartment, inexpensive and convenient. Food shopping was only two blocks away which is important when traveling with two teens. Tapas Tapas and Browns both located on Pas. Gracia are great restaurants. The owner: Carmen met us upon arrival and took the time to explain everything to us about the apartment. She was very friendly and accommodating. Also she gave us her phone number to call if we needed anything at anytime. She has put a lot of thought into anticipating the needs and comforts of her guests. We really enjoyed Barcelona and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family and we would certainly stay at this apartment again.

The two bedroom apartment is located in the heart of Barcelona, conveniently next door to the metro and walking distance to some major attractions.
It was clean, tastefully decorated and furnished with all of the comforts of home.
Carmen and her husband met us upon arrival and reviewed everything we had to know to make for an enjoyable visit. I highly recommend this property and hope I have a chance to visit again.

Carmen is a pleasure. We arrived in the city on a very hectic day in Spain. She went beyond the call of duty to help us with our arrival and with settling in. She was available to us at all hours if needed but did not impose on us in the slightest. The apartment is centrally located, attractive and spotless. There is a metro stop right outside and is within a stones throw of a taxi line. There is plenty to access by foot from the apartment as well. We would return there without hesitation. We stayed with two kids (9-12) and they also enjoyed the space (the one English channel on tv was Disney and that worked well during siesta time).
