Would I stay here again or recommend to others? YES!!
The flat was well-located in the Sant Antoni neighbourhood of Barcelona, one block from the Urgell stop on the L1 metro line. The immaculately clean flat was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. The air-conditioning worked perfectly and it was an absolutely treat to be in a perfectly climate-controlled space due to the central cooling, especially when it was so hot outside. Jaume and Gemma were fantastic–could not have asked for better hosts. Would I stay here again or recommend to others? YES!!
Highly recommend this apartment!
Apartment was gorgeous - clean, spacious, had everything we need! Also within walking of nearly everywhere on our list for our stay in Barcelona. Our hostess was a huge help when she greeted us and gave us tips and walked us through the map to get oriented as well! Highly recommend this apartment!
Beautiful and bright apartment!
Jaume's apartment is beautiful with lots of light, convenient to stores and an easy walk to Placa Catalunya. The 2 bathrooms were nice with great water pressure.The Barcelona Aerobus stops less than a block from the building and is a great option. They let us check in early which made it very convenient. We liked many of the restaurants and shops in El Born so this was a bit further from that then we would have liked but the apartment was comfortable and very nice.
This apartment was extraordinary!
This apartment was extraordinary! I was there for business and the apartment is extremely well appointed with everything you may need for a comfortable stay. The location is also really wonderful - within easy walking distance to Gothic quarter, Las Ramblas, Born, city center, and so much more! Conveniently located in a quiet residential area with nearby groceries and local restaurants with all the amenities you could ask for. We also really appreciated the washer and dryer! All in all, a tremendous place to stay - whether for work or pleasure!
The Livingstone is a lovely, clean, modern unit in a great location. Spacious by big-city standards. There's a beautiful apartment building across the street that enhances the view. Very convenient to the Metro and to several good restaurants and other sightseeing destinations without being in a touristy area. This is a real residential neighborhood. Look online for restaurants in the Sant Antoni area to find some nearby gems. Also in the neighborhood (a 10 minute walk north on Urgell) is a terrific, festive Salsa club frequented by locals that we visited one night. We aren't great dancers, but nobody minded that we were there just to watch. JazzSi Club, also in the area, is highly recommended, but we never managed to get there early enough. Wish they had a late show! Two suggestions for BizFlats: a couple of luggage stands would be nice so guests don't have to place their suitcases on the floor. And for us Americans, some washcloths/facecloths as part of the linen supply would be most welcome. Thanks again for a great stay!
Felt like home!
We loved our beautiful flat (it was actually the Livingstone) in Barcelona! The pricing was so reasonable that we kept the flat the whole time we were in Spain even though we left for 2 and 3 day excursions. Every time we returned to Livingstone, it felt like home, it was so much nicer than the other flats we stayed in. It was light and airy, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The only thing nicer than the apartment was the staff. Gemma and Jaume were so awesome in making us feel welcome and taken care of. If we are lucky enough to return to Barcelona one day, we would definitely want to stay there again.
Comfortable apartment in a great location! Most sights within walking distance, and, for those not, a quick train ride.
My husband and I enjoyed staying at this apartment due to its great location and "comfortable feel". The living room area allows one to de-escalate after a busy day touring. Also, we were met at the apartment by the property manager who took the time to explain the surroundings and provided us with her cell phone so we could call with any questions. We enjoyed walking La Rambla which is within an easy walking distance from the apartment. We also enjoyed walking within the Exiample to see Gaudi's beautiful and interesting architectural designs. The area is safe. While the outside of the building does not lend charm or antiquated Spanish architecture, the inside of the apartment where we spent our "down time" was all we needed to provide the Spanish feel.
Beautiful and convenient
We were group of three friends and stayed in this beautiful apartment for 3 nights. Reservation process was very easy, and thanks to many useful information that we get from bizFlats we felt welcome even before arrived. Ali met us, helped us to find our way and answered all questions that we had. We didn't use the public transportation because it's very easy walk from flat to many tourist places of interest. The apartment was neat and clean, and we thank you for making our stay in Barcelona so enjoyable.
Hemos estado encantados con el apartamento. El piso se ve como en las fotos, Ali ha sido encantadora y nos ha ayudado y recibido muy bien. La ubicacion esta muy bien a 10 minutos andando de la rambla. Hemos tenido una estancia para repetir. Muchas gracias.
Great stay in gorgeus city, look no further
The property is exactly what it looks like on the photos, place is clean, everything one needs is there. A rather comfortable bed which is a pleasant surprise. As for the location - it is in a quite place while very convenient - it is only a walking distance to most places in Barcelona. The host provided a multitude of extras on request too, from airport transfers to parkings and coffee machines. Great stay, would recommend it to anyone and am going to rent it again next time I'm over in the city
