We stayed in this apartment for seven weeks this summer and recommend highly. It is large and located in a very convenient neighbourhood close to Plaza Espana, Plaza Catalunya and the subway lines that run along the Gran Via. While Francesc is not located on site, we found him to be very attentive to any of our questions. While the apartment could use a little TLC, you will be hard pressed to find such good value in central Barcelona. Excellent Tim 10/24/2016 7:20:00 AM
We had a fantastic time at Francesc's apartment and I hope we were good guests. The building itself and the apartment have a unique historic character. The place is extremely well-located, and the subway is literally around the corner, in a very convenient neighborhood. This is a superb property, and we highly recommend it.

This was a perfect apartment for our family. A great location in a great city. Francesc was helpful and responsive. We absolutely rent from him again. Excellent Sara Daniels 2/28/2014 4:59:00 PM
