The Apratment was perfect. We really enjoyed staying in the apartment. There was no equipent that was missing, everything was complete. The apapartment is in the heart of barcelona, really central located, like in the middle of the city. We never had to use our car, everything was really near and we used a lot the underground transportation and the bus it was really easy to use. The apartment is right on top of one of the biggest Zara stores in Barcelona. The bathroom was great it had both a badtub and a shower, the 2 beds were very comfortable.

Juanmi was a really good contact person. He showed us every single thing of the apartment, how to use things etc.. he also came with us to show where we can park our car and he came back again wih us. He showed us every single important place in Barcelona on the map. He even paid one way with the bus , which was really nice from him. He was very friendly, educated and respectful. He helped us with our luggage and gave us also one more contact number in case something happens and we can't contact him. We really enjoyed the whole stay in Barcelona and we will definetely come back again to this apartment.
