Just stayed at the Gaudi apartment for 3 nights. We were 4 people and stayed in two bedroom apartment. It was clean and comfortable. It was very close to Metro and the church. Nice bakery right next door for breakfasts and lots of restaurants near us, including grocery stores. The company was receptive to our needs and when I called or emailed, they responded right away. They even called a cab for us. The drawbacks for me that I wish I had known so I would have been better prepared: we had two bathrooms, but one bathroom was only toilet and sink, the other was a shower and sink. The washer and dryer are in first floor in a location that's a little scary at night. No detergent needed for it either. We quickly ran out of toilet paper and had to buy it ourselves. Nothing is provided including daily towel and daily cleaning services unless you pay additional fee.
What an absolute gem this place is - the best thing we can say is: we have been lucky enough to stay in many places all over the world, and this is only the second place we have found (the other being in Rome) that we would stay at again and again, without ever searching for any other accommodation if we return to Barcelona.
Location - perfect! 30 second walk from the Metro AND the Sagrada Familia. An abundance of shops, supermarkets, restaurants on your doorstep. A beautiful tree lined pedestrian only strip that you step onto as you leave the apartment ( or stand on the balcony and watch the world go by, as we often did). Views of Sagrada Familia from the balcony, your room and the pool.
Apartment - perfect! 2 bedrooms were great, extremely clean and quiet, view from balcony brilliant, fully self contained, pool area fantastic.
Assistance - Excellent. From the moment of first internet enquiry until the time we checked out, the service and assistance from the bcn staff was outstanding. Always prompt, efficient, friendly, and striving to ensure our stay enjoyable. We were met on day 1 at the apartment to check our needs and give us general Barcelona advice, and the staff also assisted us throughout our stay.
There is so much to love about this apartment block - I cannot fault it. So if you want something close to everything Barcelona has to offer, at a great price, with brilliant amenities and an outstanding support staff, you cannot go wrong with this apartment. Try and get a high apartment for the best views, but all views are amazing!
Six of us arrived at the apartment on 13th June and were greeted by a lovely host (Cara) who explained everything we needed to know and said to contact her if we needed anything.
The apartment was spotless with everything you could possibly need - cooking facilities, iron and ironing board, dishwasher, air con... There was a washing machine downstairs which we also used.
The apartment was absolutely beautiful with gorgeous views of the Sagrada Famillia from the balcony and from the roof terrace. The pool was small but just what we needed to cool down in the 32 degree heat. We met many people on the roof terrace who were also in Barcelona for Sonar Festival, which was nice.
The area was perfect, lots of restaurants and bars round about and it was easy to get to where we wanted to be.
I don't have a bad thing to say about this apartment, it was perfect from start to finish and I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Barcelona. 10/10.
The apartment was very clean and contained modern furnishings. For a few extra euros we upgraded to a unit overlooking the pedestrian street and with a marvelous view of the Sagrada Familia from our balcony. The location was ideal with easy access to transportation and tapa bars and a bakery within a few feet of our building. Since our stay was in the middle of our 2 week tour of Spain, we made good use of the free washer and dryer in the basement of the building. Recently we've stayed in apartments in London and Paris. This apartment has provided the best experience of all.
Very good services, the apartment is fitted out well and comfortable. The district of Sagrada Familia is touristic and there are a lot of good restaurants near the place Gaudi. Really very well to pass one week in family.
