Reviews of this property
This roomy fourth floor apartment is located at the heart of a thriving local community, on a small attractive city street lined with restaurants and shops. The great advantage of its location is that it hasn’t been spoilt by tourism, yet it sits central to everything Barcelona has to offer.
The apartment, which is accessed by staircase, contains a spacious and attractive lounge area, two bathrooms (very useful for more than two adults!), a double and a twin bedroom and a well-appointed kitchen. There are small balconies at the front and back of the premises and, with doors to both left open, a refreshing breath of air can waft through and cool the entire apartment on even the hottest of summer days.
However, if it’s sunlight you’re after as well, on the floor above is a massive private roof terrace with large dining table and chairs, plus barbecue area and sun-loungers - an impressive space which captures the Catalonian sun all day long. From here, looking down to the west is the narrow street of Vallespir and its attractive medley of characterful buildings: to the east the vast modern underground railway station of Barcelona Sants, with its hotel and coach station above. The long distance transport connections here are excellent (regular trains to the airport leave from platforms 8 and 9), although it’s a bit of a hike through the busy station concourse and out beyond to the Sants Estació metro station. It’s a much easier - and more interesting - five-minute walk in the opposite direction to the quieter Plaça de Sants metro station or the D20 and H10 bus routes, all of which connect directly with the Barclona’s most popular tourist attractions. Be aware that the coach and railway station do generate noise around the clock, but the double-glazing in the apartment is totally effective and we never missed a comfortable night’s sleep!
There’s a wealth of distractions close to the front door of Penthouse Vallespir and our pleasant and well-informed host was very generous with some great advice on where to go and what to see.
This is a super and charming apartment in a gem of an area, which we would heartily recommend to anyone wishing to experience fully the true spirit of the wonderful city of Barcelona.
Classy European flat in older building with 2 baths and private roof terrace overlooking Sants with Montjuic and Tibidabo views.
3rd floor with no elevator but Oscar will give a hand with your luggage if required. You should not carry bricks in your luggage though.
A big thanks to Oscar for an amazing reception and info about Barcelona, nice apartment with a great terrace, easy access to metro and train, we could go to Camp Nou on 20 minutes and took the metro to La Rambla.Vi had a great holiday in Oscar `s apartment and will definitely come again
It was a pleasant stay at the Penthouse Vallespir. Oscar was already waiting when we arrived. He showed us the penthouse and after that he gave us important information about Barcelona and everything you have to know and to see.
Oscar handed over the keys and the next time we met him, was in the apartment for the check out. We finally discussed our impressions in a calm atmosphere. To sum up, it was our first wimdu experience, but not the last one. Thanks to Oscar for the great stay! Best regards from Frankfurt!
Oscar was very friendly and welcoming! He told us about lots of great things to do in Barcelona and advice on how to get around. The apartment was as described and the roof terrace is amazing. Would definitely recommend it.
Oscar is a great host, very friendly and gives a lot of information about Barcelona.
We had wonderful days in Vallespir and the metro is a few minutes walking from the apartment. Here are Metro, bus, train and taxi to go everywhere you want.
We also walked to Sagrada Familia and Gotica, so if you love to walk you can walk to all famous places in Barcelona. Eating tapas in Catalana (at Rambla de Catalunya) was an evening to remember. We are a family of 5, with 3 kids 8, 11 & 12. Thank you Oscar!
Very good welcome from Oscar. Popular and friendly neighborhood
Très bon accueil de la part d'Oscar. Quartier populaire et sympa
Eine tolle Wohnung mit allem was man braucht und eine schöne Dachterrasse gibt's oben drauf dazu mit interessantem Ausblick zwischen den Bergen, insgesamt sehr zentral gelegen. Wir, 2 Mädels auf Städetrip, haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles sauber und in gutem Zustand. Aircondition im Wohnzimmer, morgens von Sittichen geweckt worden, trotz Bahnhofnähe erstaunlich ruhig.
Oscar ist ein sehr sympathischer Vermieter mit vielen Tipps zu Barcelona fernab vom üblichen Touristenkram. Insbesondere seine Restauranttipps sind goldwert. Wir würden auf jeden Fall die Wohnung wieder nehmen. Dear Oscar, we enjoy our trip und we'll come back! Greetings from Hamburgo!
Das Appartment hat uns sehr gefallen es war alles vorhanden was man für einen Stadturlaub benötigt. Die Wohnung war sauber und gepflegt, es gab nichts zu beanstanden. Die Dachterrasse war sehr schön. Das 2. Bad war bei einer 16 jährigen Tochter gold wert. Die Lage ist zentral zu U-Bahn, Flughafen und somit sind alle interessanten Punkte der Stadt gut zu erreichen.
Oskar hat uns sehr nett empfangen, obwohl wir durch Fluglotsenstreik 3 Stunden später ankamen. Seine Tips und Infos waren super.
Auch der zweite Urlaub mit WIMDU war wieder gut.
