This was the best Airbnb we've ever stayed in around the world and we have visited many over the last few years. The location can't be beat. The management company was responsive, helpful and super thoughtful. We had small treats waiting for us and our kids upon arrival and other nice touches during our stay. We have recommended this location and company to all others who visit Barcelona.
Wow, what a great review, thank you very much! We are so happy to see that you had such a great stay and felt well taken care of. It is also so great to see that your children liked our little treats. We thought they may like it. It has been a pleasure to host you. We'd love to see you and all the family again soon!
