  • Located in a very nice area, Ignacio the host is very helpful.Apartment is on the 7th floor of an old warehouse, in the evening and during the weekend the warehouse is closed only entrance with a key. Elevators are a bit scary at first, but DO NOT open the little doors until the elevator has stopped! (I learned the hard way)The apartment is a delightful surprise, it is contemporay, clean and provided of anything you may need.The terrace is a joy!Wifi is quick and the location is nearby beach and city centre.We will definitely visit this apartment again!!!

  • It is my pleasure to recommend this flat for your stay in Barcelona. We spent 11 nights here and it was a wonderful experience.

    Ignacio and Carolina are excellent hosts. From start to finish, communication was prompt and polite. We were given excellent recommendations for restaurants, bars, and practical advice.

    Their flat is beautiful. It is located in a warehouse building that is reminiscent of early transformations in the meat packing district of NYC and currently in Brooklyn. It's a very hip space, decorated very well, and the terrace is a dream. The apartment is well equipped for cooking and relaxing. The WiFi is fast and reliable, which we appreciated as we had some work to stay on top of while we were there.

    The location is excellent too. You are near two metro lines (L1 and L4) and within walking distance to the beach and to El Born. Nearby is a supermarket and many cafes. There area is very safe and we found everyone to be very kind, despite the fact that my Spanish is like a two-year-old child... :)

    All told, we had a wonderful experience and would not hesitate to stay here again.

  • We had a great time staying is this beautiful apartment during a heat-waved Barcelona fortnight, with lazy, cool air conditioned siesta's overlooking the flowery terrace and easy acces to the subway, although lots of sites are walking distance.
    Ignacio was the perfect host: there when you need him, ready to answer your questions an provide you with tips.

  • It was very pleasant 3-weeks stay at Ignacio's. The flat has the perfect location between beach and city center and it is very cosy.
    For those who are traveling with baby: as the flat has some stairs (but not more than two steps at once) I think the best if the baby cannot walk yet or already walking up and down stairs very securely.
    The terrace is lovely and secure also for kids.
    Ignacio and his wife are nice and reliable people with perfect English. Check in and check out were very quick and easy with a lovely surprise; they provided a baby crib and high chair purchased for our stay.
    I would rebook or recommend the flat any time.

  • Ignacio's apartment is amazing. The terrace is beautiful : it's very pleasant to take the breakfast & to do a barbecue for the dinner. The apartment is really well located : 15 minutes walk from the beach and 20 minutes from Las Ramblas. Ignacio et his wife are very friendly et give goods advices to discover Barcelona.

  • Fab apartment with views over the city to the med, and right, to Montjuic. Tastefully furnished and exactly as the pictures show, except the terrace, which has new furniture and is now even nicer! The location is great - you are 2 mins walk from Marina metro station, there is a good baker the same distance away, plus a newsagent, supermarket, various bars and cafes. You can easily walk to most attractions, though it's nice to have public transport so accessible for when your legs get a bit tired.

    Ignacio and his wife are lovely people - very helpful, friendly and warm. They speak great English, so all communications and arrangements were very easy indeed. Got great tips for restaurants and cafes too - loved the mascarpone croissant! This is a fab place to stay and I have no hesitation in recommending it. Please don't forget to water the plants if you do. :-)

  • We stayed in Carolina and Ignacios appartment for 4 days, and it suited us perfectly. Upon arrival Ignacio welcomed us in the street and helped us with our luggage to the appartment at the 7th floor. Here we also met his wife Carolina and both gave us a warm welcome and made us feel right at home. The gave us tips on Barcelona and promised to write an email on further recommendations next morning, and surely it came right on the money.
    the appartment is great and sits on top of an industrial building in a good neighbourhood, walking distnace to all we needed. I can not recommend this place enough, and Ignacio has been really helpfull before and under our stay.
    Thanks again...

  • Ignacio was an ideal host for us....quick to respond and accommodating! Besides that he was invisible :) Although he seemed like the type of guy I would like to have a glass of wine and chat with.

    The flat was fantastic. Stayed 5 nights. It had all the elements we required and was clean, bright, quiet and the perfect amount of space for 2 people. Had a lazy breakfast on the 7th floor terrace every morning. And the location was well balanced...a nice 10-15 min walk from either the beach, Born district (fantastic area) and Sagrada Familia. About a 5 min walk to a beautiful park, Parc de la Ciutadella, or Marina train station and about 20 min walk to La Ramblas. Supermarket and cafe across the street. Highly recommended.

  • Ignatio's apartment is really well located. There are 2 metro stops and a tram stop within a 5 minute walk. The estacio de nord bus station is also only 1 kilometre away. It's a short walk to the born / gotic area. The apartment is just like the pictures. Ignacio gave us some great tips for restaurants. Highly recommended.

  • Ignacio and his apartment rock! Great interior, fantastic terrace. Ignacio and his wife were lovely and full of great advice. Very near metro and walking distance to a great park and bars and restaurants in El Born. Highly recommended.
