What makes this unique apartment are the fantastic views to the Sagrada Familia. A view from your living room or from the balcony of the room, and there she is, majestosa. It is the ideal place to start a tour of Barcelona site.
You will be the envy of all other tourists with your apartment next to the Sagrada Familia. The location is simply incredible. Admire the splendor of this modernist basilica from its surrounding gardens before walking along Avenida Gaudí to look for a restaurant to have your paella and sangria. Afterward, discover the streets of the Eixample, which take you to the Gracia neighborhood, the Agbar Tower or Plaza Catalunya. Don't leave Barcelona without seeing the exclusive shops of the Paseo de Gracia, which you can find all around the Casa Batlló or La Pedrera.
Just 2 minutes from Sagrada Familia Metro. L2 (purple) and L5 (blue). That will take you in just 5 minutes to the center (Passeig de Gracia) or 20 minutes to Camp Nou to enjoy a Barca match.

My friend and I booked via Wimdu for the first time. I was more optimistic about the experience that she was. However we had jointly agreed to stay at the Sagrada Familia Apartment. Firstly it is superbly located 2 blocks for the iconic landmark. Ironically despite the 1000's of visitors at the Basilica each day, 2 blocks away it feels local and peaceful (although the bars below can make a little noise if you are an early to bed person. It feels very special to be able to see glimpses of this UNESCO marvel from the apartment as well as walk past it each day. The Metro stop is also 1-2 blocks away, making it easy to get in and out of the city suburbs that have other sites and places of interest (L5 - blue line). Re getting the keys, it is a pain having to call from the airport and arrange for someone to meet you at a particular time, when other airbnb type sites have key boxes so you can arrive more freely. Plan 2 hours from landing to arriving in the city if you go by train certainly.
Martin -our key man was very nice and helpful. It would help nevertheless if WIMDU actually had the correct address. There are 2 building on 436 Career De Mallorca. This particular one is 436 B (opposite Santander bank). As a result meeting out key exchange was a mix up. However all was well after that first hiccup. The apartment is not as big as the photos, nor is it as modern or appealing. We both found it very average. The kitchen is tiny and poorly equipped we felt.. The bathroom not much bigger. There is a double bed, 1 tiny cupboard single room and a pull down single in the office.
It is ideal for 2 people regarding places to put suitcases etc but not inviting enough for you to want to chill on the couch and relax. Saying that we knew we would be out most of the time but that is besides the point.
You pay approx 40 euros for cleaning. I am not sure who gets that money but we found it quite unclean, needing to wipe surfaces and clean crockery first before use.
The little lift is super handy nestled in the hollow of the stair case i- which is old and atmospheric. Also this is the only rented apartment in the building so there is no party noise elsewhere.
The shower pressure is OK. NB. you are only given 1 toilet roll so be prepared! There are no bathroom toiletries except a half empty cheap hand soap dispenser. It felt tacky.
Overall the apartment is quirky in so much it is in an old quarter and is typical of this part of the city. There is a lovely bakery next to the building and cute little bars down below and up towards the Sagrada on the left (after Santander) on Carrer De Mallorca.
Sadly the beds are dreadful as are the pillows. Despite street noise, our inability to sleep was based on poor quality mattresses and flimsy pillows. A real shame.
The little balcony off the double bedroom is nice to enjoy with a night cap or morning cuppa, especially as you can see the Sagrada Familia so closely.
For convenience to the SF Basilica and the Metro, it is well positioned. For quality I am sure you can find better for the money (although maybe not so close to such a world icon as this!?)
Nice studio, all we needed was there. Only thing missing were some glasses for water (just one large glass). The studio is clean and comfortable. Terrace with pool is very nice! We stayed with four friends, which is ok if you don't need a lot of space. Good access to the metro, studio is however relatively far from the old center. Good service provided by Wimdu, we had a late check in which was no problem at all. Overall a very nice experience!
The apartment is completely newly renovated and can easily host up to 6 people. It is also very clean. Nonethelss, there were few things my friends and I did not like about it:
- nothing was provided, not even toilet paper (after you pay 350€ for a weekend you expect at least that)
- they require extra costs for pretty much everything: we paid €60 more for late check in, then €10 for touristic taxes. All these costs are clearly reported on the website, still I think the late check in costs can be cancelled if modern technology to handle keys are used
- last but the most important thing is that they also required us to pay a €200 of refundable deposit. Since we could only pay via debt card, they withdrew our money and then simply FORGOT to give it back to us. I have to call them three times in one day after almost 10 days and finally have the deposit back. If you ask money for everything, then you have to be very serious about it yourself, I think
Good location, clean apartment, great service!
Lovely stay, helpful staff/owners, good location, great appartment. The boiler had broken when we arrived, but the owner came and fixed it that evening.
We had a great holiday.
1. Excellent Location. Near to Metro stop and airport Bus stop
2. No issues with the apartment except the late check-in fee and high cleaning fees.
3. Wifi was good and never faced any connection issue.
We had a nice time in this Apartment, no problems with oxis! We would recommend this Apartment!
We really liked the apartment. It was clean, cosy and close to the metro station. The agency was very responsive and we arrange everything we wanted to.
A very Nico situated appartment close to city centre of Barcelona - walking distance. Can equip max 5 persons, so for families very nice. Balcony on 5th floor with streetviews, good for morning breakfasts and evening wine. Appartment has two nice bathrooms, quality overall is well. One recommendation: equip each bedroom with a fan - now only 2 available.
We were a group of nine people who stayed in the apartment. It was spacious and clean with a comfy terrace only part of the furniture is a little sleazy. It is located very good with a metro station and bus stop for the airport bus right around the corner. Also there are a lot of nice bars and restaurants in the area and a supermarket just the other side of the street.
