apartment deposits

by traveldogg

I'm trying to book an apartment in Barcelona and on one booking engine, they say when you get there you have to give 100 euros deposit. we're already prepaying big bucks for the stay. does anyone have any experience with this? do they take it only in cash?? or put a hold on your card and then cancel it when you haven't done major damage at the end of your stay???

Re: apartment deposits

by Mikejj

Have you tried Viamichelin, with most of their hotels,apartments, you give your card details as security but pay the hotel or whatever when you arrive. I've used that site for years and never paid a deposit, (dont stay at the Music Hall Apartments, website looks great but the place is a dump)

Re: apartment deposits

Yes it is usual. I remember paying cash deposits in all apartments I rented in Spain or other countries. I'm not sure if they only accepted cash, or I just preferred cash as per the reasons ranger gave above.

Haven't rented in Spain but have in France, Germany, Italy and the UK. We've always paid deposits in cash and they have always been cheerfully returned at the end of our stay. In Paris we had to leave the entire 9-day rent as a deposit (effectively paying rent twice). We got it all back in cash at the end of our nine days and had enough cash for the entire rest of our trip with some left for the next trip.

BTW, we always photograph the house/apartment when we get there as proof of condition. We've never needed it, but it's nice to know you have it if something happens.

Enjoy your stay.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

You must see The Ramblas, the football stadion of FC Barcelona, 'el parque Guëll', La Pedrera, (= art of Gaudi), the Port, the beach .... La Sagrada familia (church), the Cathedral and the barrio gotico, the Arch of Triumph ... My friend Eladio from Barcelona ! He and his wife guided us in the city by using the subways. It was very kind of them.

Barcelona Beaches

these beaches are not the most fantastic you have luck to see in your life, but in these last years their quality (sand and water) has grown so much!!

Thanks to 1992 Olympic Games Barcelona has changed his face and recover the beaches where for a long time only passes the train and that area was ful of industries.

Now we can enjoy with 5 beaches, each one with their feature that i want to explain here

the best way to arrive is taking the subway and go down in Ciutadella Vila Olimpica yellow line, and follow the street to right hand once in the ground


The first beach you can find is Nova Icaria the fullest and easy recognized beach in summer due to Pizza hut restaurant, that i only visit some afternoon to see how people playing Beach volley

The next and the most interesting for me is Bogatell (also subway Bogatell station)it always is emptier than Nova Icaria and water is cleaner too

Third Mar Bella Also quiet and calm beach cause its further away of touristic guides!!, Above all you could see spanish or catalonian people there

The last is Nova Mar Bella that i dont suggest cause there are 'next' to it the Besos river outlet, and Besos isnt a clean and gorgeous river of course

In that list i forgot the most typical beach in Barcelona, La Barceloneta placed to left hand seeing to sea of Nova Icaria beach and far away from Vila Olimpica freetime zone and Mafre and Arts Hotel Towers. Its in front of Barcelona Sea Hospital (look at your guide map). To arrive there twopotions Barcelona subway station or Ciutadella

Sant Jordi

by Yosemite_44

The 23th of April is feast of St. Jordi, the patron saint of Cataluña. All over the city you will find bookstands in the outdoors as girls are supposed to buy a book for a guy and guys buy roses for girls. This is a fun day to experience!

Spoilt of choice

by de_lady about St Catherine's Market

Yes, yes... I know there is THE famous La Boqueria Market off las Ramblas and that should be enough but I am always a bit picky and trying to find an alternative. well Saint Catherine's Market is much much smaller place but I preferred it to La Boqueria cos it was not so squishy-squashy crowded and definitely sellers were not artificially winding up prices as the guys from las ramblas. Much more quiet, no need to look around your shoulder in search of potential pickpockets, time to have a tasting of what u want to buy and a moment of conversation with shop assistants. Dont know maybe I was lucky and usually its also noisy and crowded, I visited the market on early Saturday afternoon.. * best buys - jamon (ham), chorizo and other hard sausages, locally made olive oil, mozzarella-style local cheese, weigh-in olives marinated with garlic, tiny shallots, and even tinier cucumbers <----- personal favourite,
....and remember dont feel shy to ask to try something, shop assistants usually dont mind, much cheaper that famous La Boqueria as I mentioned before, if u are buying just few products as souvenirs from your trip I think u can expect to spend around 20-30 euros on that. Extended shopping ( local delicacies for whole family) - well... double or triple that amount.
aaaa and always try to bargain... no one minds and it is great fun :)
