We had a very nice stay in Olgas appartment. After we arrived at her appartment we met with Olga and she handed us the key and showed us everything. The kitchen is fully equipped but there was a smell from the sink. Probably because the appartment is located in the old town of Barcelona.
Metrostation just 5 minute walk. Shops and Restaurants arround the corner. Walking distance to Las Ramblas and the harbour.
Olga is friendly and helpful and the communication is easy.
The flat was clean and tidy.
Olga was on time to meet us and very welcoming. The area felt safe and the apartment is in a good location, close to restaurants and small stores to buy groceries. About a 5 min walk to a nice beach, which is great to have so close especially if travelling with kids. We toured during the day and enjoyed the beach in the evening when it was not so hot. About a 10 min fast walk to Poblenou subway/metro station.
The apartment was clean, the bathroom is fairly tight and the floor and shower could use refinishing. Kitchen breakfast bar is way too tight therefore we ate at the coffee table by the sofa. There could be some larger beer glasses and coffee mugs.
Otherwise a good stay and value.
We used the Taxi company recommended for our way to the airport. Unfortunately they did not come at the time requested and we had to find a taxi on the street. The taxi driver would not take 5 people and luggage, saying it would not fit even though we had taken exactly the same vehicle going from the airport. We were forced to take two taxis. The ride was 35 euros. Later that day we got an email confirming a taxi pick up at 23.50. We were very clear about the pick up time, at 11.50 before lunch NOT 23.50 at night!! Perhaps it would be clearer to use a phone to arrange this, not email, but most people visiting do not have a local phone.
Lovely stay, great location for me an my partner. Walking distance from La Ramblas, taxi to beach. Very clean and allround a very pleasant stay. Will recommened for sure.
L'appartamento è molto ben situato, vicinissimo alle Ramblas e alla fermata Paral-lel, con la quale è facile raggiungere i principali luoghi di interesse. Purtroppo c'è stato un incoveniente iniziale: la proprietaria non si è presentata sul luogo dell'appuntamento all'orario previsto, dicendo che lo aveva dimenticato... il fatto che non si fosse presentata ci ha fatto spaventare non poco... però una mezz'ora dopo averle inviato un messaggio si è presentata, è stata gentile, si è scusata e ci ha anche offerto una bottiglia di spumante! L'appartamento è adatto più a 2 persone che a 4 perchè piccolo. Altro inconveniente l'assenza di prese elettriche (ce ne sono solo in bagno) e la poca illuminazione dell'appartamento. Inoltre, le pentole fornite per cucinare erano solo 2 e molto scadenti...anche se questo ci ha permesso di assaggiare tutti i piatti tipici della cucina spagnola! Tutto sommato, consiglierei questo appartamento, soprattutto ad una coppia.
Die Wohnung ist auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert und hält was die Fotos versprechen. Sauber, gemütlich und die die Lage ist unschlagbar - 5 Minuten zur Rambla, 2-3 Minuten zur nächsten U-Bahn oder Bus Station. Gut als Basis um die Stadt zu erkunden. Das einzige Manko, ist, dass das Haus sehr hellhörig ist und man auch mitgekommt, was die Nachbarn machen. Olga hat uns sehr ned empfangen und die Schlüsselübergabe hat reibungslos funktioniert. Gerne wieder.
Es war einfach perfekt. Der Kontakt zu Olga war nett und vollkommen unkompliziert, die Schlüsselübergabe hat gut geklappt. Die Dusche war leider defekt (es kam kein Wasser), wurde aber umgehend repariert und wir hatten eine nagelneue Dusche. Das Apartment sieht wirklich genau aus wie auf den Fotos. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man für einen gelungenen Aufenthalt braucht. Die Lage im Zentrum ist einfach genial. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten sind zu Fuß zu erreichen, Bars, Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in Hülle und Fülle in der näheren Umgebung.
The accommodation was really awesome, perfect for two people. It is located in the perfect area - close to the beach and La Rambla. The apartment looked exactly as shown on the pictures and also the host was really nice. Key transaction went without problems. The only reason why I only give 4 stars and not 5 is because the apartment is really clairaudient and the neighbors above always started doing constructions at 10pm. Apart from that, everything was perfect!
