Review submitted by ARIEL from ginegar (Submitted: 27 Apr 2008)
there were some objects that was broken.
we try to reach Joan to fix them but we did not succeed
Thank you Arirel, I'm really sorry about you not reaching me. I can't understand it, though. I have my cellular 24 h. connected. Also the voice mail is all the time on. About the broken things I replaced that light ball and if you meant the washing machine, it is fixed now. Sorry again. How's the weather in Israel? Come back some day.

Great location - central yet quiet. Tidy apartment and friendly host. Had a great New Year's in Barcelona!
Review submitted by Diahann from Montclair, New Jersey, USA (Submitted: 14 Nov 2007)
The excellence of both the property and the service we received during our stay cannot be overstated. EVERYTHING was outstanding!!! I traveled with my fiance, my parents (in their 70's) and my niece (early 20's). Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The location was perfecto - steps from the Plaza Real, we walked easily to great shops, excellent restaurants, Starbucks(!!), Barcelona Cathedral, Picasso museum and the harborfront. The building itself is extremely secure, with a locked iron gate leading to the passage where the building is located, directly from Las Ramblas. Transportation to and from the airport was a breeze, even for my non-spanish-speaking parents who navigated their way there on their own, as we traveled in 3 separate groups. Our host, Juan, was there to meet them and did not leave til' they were settled in; he was extremely sensitive to their needs - even transfering them from the duplex apt. I originally rented, to another, more convenient apt., where all rooms were on the same level. We actually rented 2 apts for our party, but the apts were so large, comfortably furnished and accommodating, we could easily have shared 1 place. (The price I paid for the 2 apts was less than the cost of one week in a 3 star hotel for 1 double room). Both apartments were immaculately clean, plumbing and hot water well up to North American standards. 1 apartment had a dishwasher, both had washing machines - which we made much use of. Detergent, glass and silverware, linen, towels, irons etc, were all supplied. Juan himself was available to us at all hours of the day or night to answer questions and help resolve issues (my international Sprint cell phone refused to work in Barcelona - Juan came up with an ingenious solution! He also acted as liaison between ourselves and the airport/airline personnel who tracked down our lost luggage). I could go on and on and on - you get the point. I have already recommended these apartments to friends and family since my return to the US - and plan to stay here and nowhere else on all subsequent trips to Barcelona - which I hope will be many!!
Wow, Diahann! This review was excellent. Thank you very much !

Handover arrangements- waited 45 mins after arranged time for keys. Standard of cleanliness disapointing, bin under kitchen sinkoverflowing with rubbish from previous occupant, however would probably recommend to friends purely because of the excellent location.
Hello Linda, Thank you for your comments, anyway. The reason why you had to wait for me is that I was expecting you to call me from the airport, like everyone else does. We always need 30-45 minutes to get to the apartments (we don't live there!). I guess you are right when you say that the apartment was not absolutely clean . I will show this comment to the lady that cleans that apartment. I know she will get worried though since this is the first time that she's receiving a complain. Usually all our guests are happy. Sorry you weren't. There're fantastic hotels in Barcelona.

Location and security were great- felt very secure in an area that appeared to get a bit 'heavy' late at night.
Review submitted by Miriam from New York (Submitted: 11 Apr 2007)
This apartment has a very good location. But, although it is advertized and priced as being suitable for seven people, its facilities were not adequate for this.
There was insufficient heat and hot water. There was only enough hot water available for one or two guests to have a shower over one period.
Review submitted by JACKIE from LONDON ENGLAND (Submitted: 7 Mar 2007)
The apartment was in a fantastic location. We were disappointed with the apartment as it was not as nice as it appreared in the photos. The beds were hard and uncomfortale. There was no curtains at the windows and it was very sparsely decorated.
Hi, Jackie. Thank you for this comment. Everything is renewed.
