"Tanya and I really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona!

The apartment is in a wonderful old house with a great lift from the last century. We absolutely loved it! It was perfectly located in a very central area near the harbor and the beach. It's also only 5 minutes walk to the trendy district of El Born and Barceloneta. And for all shopaholics: the big shopping street begins almost directly at your doorstep.

Thanks a lot, we felt very comfortable at this place. We will definitely stay here again!"

"My experience? I didn't want to go back home - ever! This apartment is just amazing, and pictures can't do it justice. It's very grand with extremely high ceilings and everything is new/renovated. On top of that the people that you deal with are extremely nice and the communication is great! (...)I really wish I could just swap my place and live there! Thank you!"

"Our two bed/bath was a terrific find for two couples. The unit was on the 2nd floor corner overlooking the marina with several cafes and restaurants located on each street. Walking distance to the tiny winding streets of the old quarter, and marina, transportation including HOHO, city buses, taxis just across the street. Small convenience stores close by for breakfast, or snack supplies. Apartment was decorated in a modern funky style with good sound proof French doors in the living room and front bedroom. The 2nd bedroom was very large with en suite bath. Kitchen equipped with everything you would need and we were treated with snacks and a bottle of good wine left on the table. Eat the potato chips...they were made with olive oil, so much lighter than our Canadian version:-). Bathrooms were modern, fully equipped including hair dryer. Also available, iron and board. Beds were single with good foam mattress and positioned together for couples. There was also a small alcove bedroom with two single beds. The staff was very warm and friendly and happy to give us good advice and made us feel welcome in their city. Overall impression-modern, clean with great accessibility to wonderful Barcelona. Great for two couples and a couple of children. Thanks to the 1840 Team."

"Amazing apartment! Our hosts went out of their way to make sure that our stay was everything we expected and more. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, we were 2 families with 2 teenage boys and everyone loved the apartment. The location can't be beat, with Las Ramblas, Gothic area, Barcelonetta, Port Vell and the beach just a short walk away (...) We have already stayed at the same apartment building previously and will definately consider coming back (...)Can't see why anyone would choose to stay in a tiny hotel room when you can share a beautiful apartment like this. I highly recommend this apartment to others!"

"We had a great time staying here in 2013.

Our group was one couple (myself and fiance) and 3 friends.

The apartment was huge and spacious, bigger than we realised from the pictures. The master bedroom was very spacious and had a private ensuite. The two other bedrooms had a double (2xsingles pushed together) and then 2xsingles arrangement. The size of the apartment allowed us all to have a bit of space in our own living areas and plenty of space to catch up and look out at barcolenetta from the lounge room window. Very comfortable apartment, great design, and loved the facilities of coffee machine and washing machine.

The staff was very helpful in settling us in, and also giving us advice. We really appreciated the downloadable guide to the area which had recommendations for restaurants etc. We enjoyed 7 portes just 100m away and Mirilla not too far away.

We especially loved being able to walk to Las Ramblas and the most amazing food market we have ever experienced! Barcelona and our stay at this apartment just left us never wanting to leave! Would highly recommend this apartment to others."

Karleen, July 2013

"We had the best time. Our hosts were fantastic and there to meet us when we arrived. The apartment was spotless and they had some snacks and coffee and wine for us – which was glorious since we just arrived in Spain! The location was fantastic – very easy to walk everywhere or to get the metro. Lots of great restaurants around. I would very highly recommend. We had 5 people, but would easily fit 6. Thank you so much – we had an amazing stay!"

Wine, milk and coffee is a simple but always very appreciated touch.

The pictures didn't show it prior to our booking but the apartment actually has a pretty nice view of Montjuic and the docks.

If its sunny out you got a pretty nice bar downstairs with lots of outdoor seating.
