Dear Hop, Everything with the apartment went very well. We enjoyed the place. The location was perfect for us. The view is a real selling point.
The wait at Sagrada Familia was only 15 minutes for us on Friday. We made sure we went during a weekday instead of WE-day.
No negatives. Everything was as described. Thanks so much.
Best - Diane & Chris & family (USA/Paris)
Dear Hop, Seasons Greetings to you. Hope things are looking up in Barcelona and Spain.
We are having an untypical cool and wet summer in Sydney. We are planning to visit Barcelona again next year in October and hope to stay at Harbour Appartment No 2. Best wishes, Leslie and Noel
dear Hop, We had a wonderful stay!
Thank you so much. Kindly, Ayako, Shin and Hana (Canada) J J J
Hi Hop, We are sorry that we won’t meet with you in person to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in Harbour Palace 2. For us the location was perfect, the apartment was spacious and comfortable and all the amenities made us feel right at home.
If we are ever able to return to Barcelona we will surely contact you to reserve this apartment. In the meantime, we will recommend both the apartment and your agency to friends who are Barcelona-bound. In thanks, we have left you a little something in the refrigerator. Enjoy and thank you again!

Dear Hop, We have returned to Sydney and are just getting over the jet-lag.Thank you for your excellent and helpful service.
We hope to return to Barcelona next year or the year after. All the best, Leslie (Australia)
Thank you so much, Hop. Yes we had a great time and will be back!!
Thanks again, Alison & Naomi
Thank you so much again for everything in Barcelona. Already missing the apartment...and thinking of future occasions to go to Barcelona again and OF COURSE back to the apartment. Children loved it also: we all have a wonderful remembering of this holiday.
Thank you again & take care, Gloria (Germany)
Thanks Hop! We really enjoyed our stay!

Great location, great views, elevator in the building. The apartment was well located by the harbor and we were able to walk to most places of interest. There was a nice coffee shop across the street which was convenient for the first morning. The 2 deck Barcelona Turistic bus (hop off and on) was a nice introduction to the city and the Articket for 7 museums worked well for us, getting you at the front of the ticket line! The Ramblas was a wonderful street, especially early on a Sunday morning, before it got too crowded, but was always a "happening" place... And of course, we loved the Gaudi buildings. Kathleen
Here is the first apartment people we rented from (this is the one I couldn't find for ages Bluebell, if you remember!) www.rentals-barcelona.com Just had a look at their website, and they're still operating. The man who runs it (part owns it) is American and really friendly. We stayed overlooking the harbour (Harbour Palace 2 I believe) and it would be children friendly. Very good accomodation - clean, modern yet in an old building, great views. Good luck! xx
Robin and I loved the apartment, and had a wonderful time in Barcelona. Next time we'll stay for a full two weeks. Thanks so much. Margaret
Dear Hop & Cristian, Thank you for your note and many thanks for the use of the apartment. We did very much enjoy our stay here and your very polite and professional help using everything. Hopefully we will come again some time soon & if we do, we shall meet again.Thanks again and the best for the New Year.

Just to say thanks for the great view and location and very efficient service. We had super time and may well be back!
Sorry I did not hava a chance to say good bye. I had a great time in Barcelona despite the cold weather. Hasta luego!!!
Dear Hop, Just a quick note to say thank you very much for helping to make our recent trip so memorable. The apartment was lovely, and perfectly situated to enjoy the huge variety of experiences Barcelona has to offer. What a fantastic city!!!!
We had a wonderful time, and managed to see a lot, yet still so much more to do...we must come back!
Sincerely we both fell in love with the city, and wondered about possibly arranging another visit -perhaps for two weeks in February? (At this stage, it is still only a dream, but will be in touch if it becomes possible..) Thanks again for all your assistance. Kind regards,
I shall hereby express my satisfaction concerning the standard of the apartment and your outstanding service! We spend a very nice week in Barcelona!! I'll surely recommend your company to friends and workmates who are planning to visit Barcelona!!
Good morning Hop, Our trip home went really fine, all tired but very happy. I just wish to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart for your excellent care of us from our arrival to departure. Your apartments were just perfect and we wanted for nothing, thank you. Barcelona is a lovely city and there is so much more to explore, we have just seen a little. I have wonderful memories of our visit to Barcelona and this will keep me going, we may get to return and this would make me very happy. again, thanks so much for all you did for us and, the service is just excellent, I know I speak for all of the group when I say this, they were all charmed with their apartments etc. It was wonderful having the lift. Until the next time, I feel it will happen, with much gratitude, Kay. (Ireland
