Arrived by taxi from Barcelona train station (having spent the previous week in Madrid), we were met by owner Antonio, who was friendly and very helpful. Antonio showed us around the spotlessly-clean apartment and all the facilities. As a middle-aged couple, this apartment was perfect for us. The immediate area is well served with bars, restaurants etc. The Girona metro station is just across the road and we used this all the time to travel around the city. Buy the 10-journey tickets - we never waited more than 3 minutes for a train, even on Sunday. During our stay, my wife became briefly unwell and required hospital treatment. Antonio advised us of a nearby public hospital (The Hospital Clinic, metro station of the same name). I cannot fault the care and treatment she received, all the hospital staff were excellent. I hope future visitors won't need this medical recommendation, but in case you do, our experience could not have been better. Back to the apartment now, I highly recommend it as a place to stay, ideal for a couple. Thank you Antonio.
The apartment was in a fantastic location, it was very clean and had everything you could need for a city break. The area felt very safe and it was easy to walk to most places and the metro was a couple of minutes walk away.
Antonio was very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
My family of four had a wonderful time at Antonio's apartment. We were warmly welcomed by Antonio who gave us maps and advice on what to do.
The location is excellent. Opposite Girona Metro station. There's a good supermarket around the corner. Numerous small shops and cafes nearby. There's a wonderful typical Barcelona market a block away. It's full of fresh seafood, fruit, veggies and much more. It's easy walking into the city and also only 10 minutes walk to La Sagrada Familia.
The apartment is spacious. We were all happy with the beds. Two singles in one bedroom and a queen in the main. Having two bathrooms was a bonus! All you need is in the apartment including a washing machine. Drying clothes is an experience as the washing line is literally off the back balcony - 5 floors up!! Fortunately there is a lift.
Antonio was very helpful throughout our stay and even sorted a taxi to the airport when we departed.
One little Barcelona tip - the water has a strange taste. Bottled water is super cheap from the supermarket.
