Read more

In Barracart we always wanted to stand out for our hospitality, cleanliness and comfort, and our commitment to sustainable tourism. Above all, hospitality, besides being a pleasure, is our duty. Both the restaurant (Casa Montaña) and the apartments (Barracart) are a passion for our family, we like getting in touch with new people and make them happy with small details, to make their stay special and Valencia a place to visit again and again..

Likewise we want our guests to feel well attended but free. Relaxed and happy enjoying the city, knowing that they will not lack anything. Our intelligent building makes possible a total and remote control of the access, so there is no Front Desk in the property. The check-in will be done on-line (auto check-in), for an independent, contact-free access to the apartment, through a personalised access code. While we are available any day 24 h by mail, whatsapp or phone, also in person on a variable schedule. Our office serves – upon request – for meetings, a shower after check-out, or to store suitcases. We provide our own app for customized local information, our tourist guides for culture, leisure and gastronomy.

For major protection, in addition to the housekeeping and safety measures, we disinfect the apartments with UVC germicidal lamps. Similarly, our bicycles, on a rental basis, are a safe means of transport to discover the city. In any case, our Travel Assistance Insurance protects you against any unforeseen during your stay.

At Barracart we recycle waste, and we have been reducing the use of plastic, with our reusable shopping bags, glass water bottles, no-capsule coffee machines (also), or using fixed dispensers for the hygiene products. As well as our home automation installation ensures energy saving, while making possible maximum comfort. Day by day we use biodegradable and bulk cleaning products, supporting local commerce, and contributing with our grain of sand to a more sustainable future.
