  • The studio was in a great location - central and near many restaurants. The building was wonderful; old and historic. The studio was small and cozy, perfect for a weekend with my boyfriend. Also provided a space heater (which we used) as well as a fan and basic kitchen necessities. However, it was not clean. The bedsheets did not smell fresh and the blanket given had multiple stains (disgusting) so we opted to not use it. We also found some chips under the table. And we also found many parts of the studio were breaking apart, for example, the curtain rod kept coming off the wall. Minor problems, but overall good stay. Maria and Justin were flexible in letting our friends pick up the keys for us as we were arriving in Barcelona late at night.

  • Me and my boyfriend had a nice stay in Maria and Justin's apartment. The apartment was perfectly located and surrounded by a lot of really good restaurants. The apartment was clean and there were lots of warm water in the shower. We would stay there again next time we come to Barcelona.

  • Appartement très très bruyant, les voisins ont des chiens qui hurlent à l'envi. Murs tres fins qui laissent filer le son de la musique. Il faut prévoir des boules kies si on veut dormir, car les fenetres ne ferment pas : le bruit de la rue, des travaux est omniprésent.
    Les rideaux aux fenêtres ne sont pas coupés, ils trainent au sol. La pendule n'a plus de pile.
    Canapé lit inconfortable, avec un trou au milieu du matelas. Pour dormir, il vaut mieux mettre le matelas au sol.
    Terrasse ensoleillée mais mal équipée : pas de bancs ou chaises, mais des palettes en bois de recuperation, incofortable.
    Ventilation dans la salle de bain très bruyante et sale, pleine de poussière.

    Equipement pauvre dans l'appartement : pas de wifi ni machine à laver. Une carcasse de lave-linge bloque le passage vers la terrasse.

    Linge de lit trop succint et sale. Pas de housse autour de la couette trop petite pour deux. Dessus de lit sale.
    Seulement 2 serviettes pour 9 jours, dont une pleine de poils de chien. Malgré le signalement sur airbnb, pas de reponse ni de proposition pour le lavage.
    Appartement très bien situé, prix correct, ce qui n'explique pas les critiques négatives du dessus. Nous avons tout de même payé 360 euros pour 8 nuits en février, ce qui me parait cher vue l'implication nulle de ces loueurs sans scrupule.

    La nuit barcelonaise n'en est pas moins magique sur la terrasse.

  • Good stay. Ideally placed apartment. Very pleasant terrace.

  • It's a 4 on ten. This place is nice and is worse the price but is definitely not for everyone.
    First we give a 10 on 10 for the location : in the center of the Barri Gotic, you have all restaurants and night life at ten minutes walk.
    Then a 8 on ten for Justin & Maria : nice, cool and welcoming. A ring when you get there and a ring when you left. Easy.
    But it is as well a 4 on ten for the apartment conditions and a 2 on ten for the bed : actually it's a mini double bed with deep in between... not that comfortable specially for a couple.
    Long story short... this flat is a good deal for who plans to spend most of its days and nights outside the place. We very enjoyed to come and go over the course of our trip.
    Have good holidays to Barcelona people !

  • Although Maria was on time for check in and very kind and friendly to us, we simply cannot really recommend this apartment at this price for the following reasons:

    - It is very run down with old/broken furniture and kitchen cupboards, dirt under the fridge, not as it looks on the pictures...

    - The bathroom is very cramped and had a musty smell. There was hardly enough hot water for us both to take a shower.

    - The stairway leading up to the flat was very narrow and steep, it would have been a challenge with a large suitcase or if we had some problem to climb a lot of stairs and smelled like sewage.

    - Yes, the terrace is private and looks pretty much as described in the photo so would have been perfect to spend time outside in the sun, but we simply could not be there for more than 5 minutes due to the overpowering smell of take away food/deep fat frying oil which permeated the air.

    - There is no Wi-Fi in the flat.

    If you are not fussy about cleanliness or don't wish to spend more than a few hours sleeping then this apartment is in a very good location in the Born district of Barcelona with cute restaurants and shops in the surrounding streets and easy walking distance to Las Ramblas.

    Positive Points:

    - The little juliet balcony is cute and overlooks the street.
    - As the flat is 4th floor, it does get a lot of light.
    - The bed was comfortable and we slept well.
    - If you cleaned it first the kitchen would suffice for a quick breakfast. Inside the fridge was almost brand new and clean.
    - When we couldn't work the shower initially Maria answered the phone to us and gave us the info we needed straight away.

    Response from Justin Y Maria:

    Hi Amy If you read before booking the profile of the apartment is very clear no wifi :) so is not our mistake. the furniture is already fix it will be nice if you had warned me about this when you call me for the hot water... the hot water is available but not for LONG shower as u expected :/
    you clearly were very rude to the demands from the beginning and will expose your mail to show you were coming with predispocision../

    ¨I suffer from a bad dust allergy so please could you ensure that the apartment is cleaned properly before we arrive? Apart from that we are very much looking forward to staying in your place and being able to leave you a nice review...

    I did my best with the cleaning...
    Sorry but you all the time acting childishly sorry to let you now but you are not welcome!

  • The hosts seemed friendly and were easy to get in touch with, but the apartment was not worth the fare. The apartment was in a great location, but didn't look or feel like it had been thoroughly cleaned before our visit. There were shelving units that didn't work that were just sitting around, the hot water would run out after 5 minutes of showering, and the apartment had an overall smell to it that was irritating.

  • The apartment was in a great location right in the middle of Barcelona. A great place to have as a base to explore the city. Although it is small, there is definitely enough room for two people and the terrace is a great place to hang out, especially in summer. There was a bit of a misunderstanding with checking in but this was quickly corrected by Maria and it was not much of a hassle. The apartment was quite dusty which isn't pleasant when you have allergies.
