Barcelona Vacation Apartment Rentals Reviews
Barcelona Vacation Apartment Rentals Jul 04, 2009
Before we went on our holiday to Barcelona, we had difficulties finding a good apartment for a good price and which was centrally located. When we found this apartment on http://www.homeaway.com/ we booked it immediatly. The owner is very nice and friendly and the communication between the her and me went very smooth, with no mistakes. So when we arrived at the apartment, everything was taken care of in the right way.
The studio apartment itself is about 40 square meters. It includes a kitchenette, 2 single beds, a couch which could be converted into a double bed, a dining table and a bathroom. The apartment building also has a shared roof terrace with several washing machines and an elevator. Our apartment was located on the first floor, which was convenient.
Although the apartment is located on the most popular and busiest street of Barcelona, you could not notice this. The surroundings were very quiet.
Towels and bed sheets are provided, but are not changed. Therefore I advise to bring some of your own.
The location is absolutely fantastic! It is located right on the Ramblas. Across the street is La Boqueria, the famous market. Shopping streets are also near by and a large supermarket is also located in the street itself. A walk to the beach took about 25 minutes. The subway stop Liceu is just a 100 meters away.
We paid 650 euros in total for seven days, excluding 150 euros security deposit, which will be given back to you on the last day, if nothing in the apartment is broken.
I would definitely recommend this apartment, which can either be booked through homeaway.com or aparteasy.com. This last website offers more of the same apartments. They're ideally located for a city trip!
