Appartement bien agencé et situé au calme.
Le contact sur place est très sérieux. Merci Cynthia !
Possède un joli salon, une cuisine intégrée, une chambre alcove située à côté d'une grande salle de bain.
Pas besoin de son véhicule pour se déplacer vers la Rambla, le centre historique ou bien la plage.
Un parking BSM est situé non loin et permet si l'on veut de se déplacer dans la ville et emprunter d'autres BSM.
Des commerces sont au pied de l'immeuble.
Je recommande cet appartement au regard des deux autres que j'ai pu faire auparavant dans le même secteur.

Hello,
we have been in this apartment for 3 nights and definitely we do not recommend it to anyone!
About the apartment: the only good thing is, the place is very centrally located! We had to figure out how the A/C works, forget about the window in the floor (cause it doesn’t open at all), forget about the other window (cause it’s a balcony going to the noisy lift outside) and only using the main window/balcony. The only thing inside the kitchen was the sugar…Maybe (for that price) Fernando has to provide at least some oil and salt (now it’s ours inside ;-)). The couch is not comfortable at all and two persons can’t fit lying there (the back of the sofa is full of pillows). The bed is very squeaky! By the way in the announcement/advertisement its written the apartment is for max four persons…maybe the sofa is more comfortable than the bed..we didn’t try.. When we arrived the sink of the bathroom was clogged. The most annoying thing is the internet connection, it’s just impossible to use it at the same time with two phones..ipad didn’t work at all! You can see in the pictures, there is a TV, forget also about it, it’s broken.
About the Wimdu service: already from the airport (so almost 2 h in advance) we informed the girl who was taking care of the place that we were already in the bus (it takes about 30 min from the airport) and I had to write her again when we were nearby, nevertheless she didn’t get there at our arrival  She explained us how to deal with the alarm, with Internet and about not making parties and so on..We didn’t check with her the TV, she just told us, there are many remotes for it. She told us, next day has to come someone to install the safe in the apartment, which is for sure a nice thing, but maybe this could be done before arriving of customers!!! The guy came and we were still home, he was a really nice guy and we showed him all the things, which didn’t work. He fixed the sink, put the safe and advised the girl about the other things.
About the announcement: You should maybe compare and write ads in the same way, putting the same rules also about how to leave the apartment in all languages, cause we have read only the same one in English and Italian and many things are missing! In any of the two ads there is written about the alarm! Nobody told us, some safe is going to be fixed at our arrival! Lastly Wimdu informs by email about the details, only that the house number is not correct, is written 25, but it’s 23.
Price/Performances ratio? No way..
A nice stay to everyone somewhere else ;-)

Le logement est correct . Ce qui me gène c'est qu'on a eu affaire .. à un loueur professionnel ( 1 employé à l'arrivée , un autre pour le départ ...) Fernando fait comme s'il était un particulier ( on l'a eu un fois au téléphone , on se met d'accord avec lui et envoie un SMS pour RDV avec t son employé !!! ) et on constate qu'il gère ....
je ne sais pas si Windu accepte cela .......

Commençons pas les choses positives:
L'emplacement est très bien, la décoration sobre et pour la propreté, ça allait aussi. La salle de bain était très bien. Les gens contactés par courriel avant, ceux rencontrés sur place, à l'arrivée et à notre départ, ont été très sympathiques.

Mais plusieurs choses nous ont déplu.

L'air climatisé ne fonctionnait pas, c'est une sorte de ventilation mais qui n'apporte pas d'air froid alors qu'il a fait chaud pendant notre séjour. Heureusement, nous avons pu utiliser un ventilateur pour faire circuler l'air et se rafraîchir la nuit, parce que pas de fenêtre pour faire de l'air dans la chambre. La chambre c'est comme un recoin ou passage pour aller à la salle de bain.

Les fenêtres ne donnent pas sur la rue ou sur une vision intéressante, elles donnent sur deux cours intérieures bétonnées dont l'une a un ascenseur extérieur qui fait pas mal de bruit, pas très joli comme paysage et en plus, nous réveille la nuit.

Pas le goût de cuisiner dans cette chaleur et sans avoir quelque chose à regarder à l'extérieur. Ça aurait été bien qu'il y ait sel, poivre, épices, huile...

Internet était très lent, mais bon ...

Si c'était à refaire, nous prendrions un autre appartement surtout à cause du manque de vue extérieure et avoir eu un balcon aurait aussi été un plus.
On se sentait un peu confiné entre quatre mûrs, mais, tout le monde ne serait pas dérangé par ça.

On ne regrette pas mais on ferait autrement si c'était à refaire.

Inden afrejse fik vi en mail fra Fernando med alle nødvendige informationer når vi var ankommet til Girona Airport.
Oplysning om busforbindelse til Barcelona - det ville være fornuftigt at tage taxa fra busstation i Barcelona til lejligheden. Telefonnr. på kontaktperson når vi var ankommet til Barcelona. Vel fremme ved lejligheden blev vi modtaget af en ung mand som fremviste lejligheden - og kom med gode tip om restauranter i nærheden.
Alt i alt en perfekt oplevelse.

Locatie is fantastisch. Dicht bij de boulevard en het centrum. Appartement is rustig en in prachtig gerenoveerd gebouw. Badkamer is groot, slaapkamer is open. Keuken is prima, keukenspullen erg karig. Schoonmaak is een aandachtspunt. Al met al een prima plek in een geweldige stad.

We had a wonderful time in this apartment. It is located in the living centrum of Barcelona. To the metro station it was 5 minutes walk and from there on you had a lot of options to go to. The apartment self was wonderful, the bathroom and the kitchen had a lot of space. Only thing I was missing was some cooking gear such as standard pepper, salt and maybe some herbs to cook with it. The freezer was all in ice, at the last day we have told the host of the accommodation about it. Furthermore we had wonderful days in this apartment!

Central, easily accessible by public transport. Proper location of the apartment, The value for money is poor. 've Paid 80 euros per night. There is a small old fashioned TV present, does not fit the modern age. The couch is old, the table and floor lamp are defective. The photos in the ad do not correspond with reality. The apartment is poorly maintained, everywhere is dusty. Towels that are there are not white, but dirty brown. Luckily I brought own towels and I recommend the guests to do just that. The bed does not sleep well; creaks with every move you make so you can not sleep well. Basically I have a little regret that I chose this apartment; stark contrast to what is promised in the ad.

We have just returned from Barcelona and are totally excited. The flat is very nice, fully equipped, with all things which are necessary to spend longer time there. An excellent location!!! In my opinion, there is no better location in Barcelona than this one. Very good contact and support from the landlord (thank you Cynthia!)
We can recommend this appartment with clear conscience!
