Barcelona-home reviews from Stephen Lowe (United Kingdom)
BHM2-2824 APARTMENT WITH THREE BALCONIES ON LAS RAMBLAS
The experiences we made in Barcelona were amazing, the city is amazing all year long but especially during summer! We had a late arrival at the mid-night and we suffered for the transfer from the airport then we called the owner just for help since we do not know anyone here, the owner was so kind and she didn’t refuse the call, she asked us to take Aerobus or the metro since the location is in center of the city which saved us a lot of money.
We were planning a vacation to Barcelona around the summer and we stayed 20 days which was more sufficient to roam around Barcelona since we are not sure about the flight tickets we haven’t booked the apartments in the first place and we were looking for the best homes in Barcelona. We finally found the right place from Barcelona-Home. The website was quite similar and they have good customer service, only struggle we have a huge time difference so if we need to clear some clarifications about how it works we always need to look upon the Spain time before we make a call, usually I used to call around 7 am in the morning so it’s evening in Barcelona.
I was looking for the apartment at the center and this is before a month we arrive it was almost neck of the moment but still we got the right help at the right time. Later after several options sent by the agent20, her name was Sara, and she was so patient in helping us with the multiple options. We were confused about the prices at the beginning and Sara explained us clearly about the utilities and cleaning charges from the owner and she got the instant confirmation from the landlord. The payment has gone through successfully with the credit card. As soon as we book we got the message saying the owner has 48 hours of confirmation.
During the check-in, the owner was so kind and they were so friendly with us. The apartment is literally the best of two worlds. From its balcony it overlooks the teeming life of the legendary Ramblas – the very heart of the city – with its beautiful art deco buildings, flower markets, art galleries, and theatres and just a few minutes stroll from the harbor. And step back from the balcony and into the stillness of rooms where all have been chosen with the real taste from the dining-room, to lounge and bedroom-all designed with quiet elegance. A relaxing place before entering the wonderful vibrancy of the city.
