We had a very pleasant stay with Ron's appartment. Both people are very nice, giving information, being interested without being over talkative.
We certainly recommend this.
I cannot say enough about Ron, Tadaaki and Danko-chan - they're not SuperHosts for nothing!! Everything about my stay was a pleasure from the initial booking, simple directions to the apartment, and a wealth of local knowledge which they happily share. I wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again, nor recommend them to anyone visiting Barcelona. I had the honour of joining them for a meal out when I first arrived - it was a great night of food, wine, great conversation and a lot of laughs. The apartment itself is beautiful - clean, comfortable and in a fantastic location. I felt as though I was visiting old friends, and it was wonderful that SueEllen popped in now and then! ;-)
Staying with Ron and Tadaaki was like staying with friends. And there's nothing like opening the door and being greeted by Danko's happy face and wagging tail. Plus, their apartment is beautiful and conveniently located. Getting around was a breeze, especially thanks to Ron and Tadaaki's expert advice. All in all, I've never had a more comfortable stay while traveling abroad. I can't recommend staying with them highly enough. They're amazing hosts!
Favorite fishing hole? Ski resort with the shortest lift lines? Perfect airbnb in Barcelona? This one goes on our list of favorite addresses. Location, accommodation, comfort, friendly knowledgeable hosts (and dog) are all top notch. Restaurant suggestions for our special occasion also combined to make this a five star stay.
As always Ron, Tadaki and Danko are the best host you can have in BCN. It's my fourth times with them and there'll be a fifth, sixth...
Plus the apartment are clean, spacious, confortable...is my home in BCN!
What can I say. I walked into their beautiful home and was treated warmly and with care. My bedroom was very comfortable and quiet. The bed was fantastic.
My hosts always were helpful and went out of their way to make me feel at home. The neighborhood is in a great location and it is lots of fun to wander the narrow streets of Born and discover things.
I would highly recommend staying here.
Ron and Tadaaki are very nice people as everybody said. (I'm going to be one of them.)
The house is nice, clean, well decorated.... very very good.
In fact I felt very comfortable so didn't go out much even it located in perfect place for tourist!!
AND Danko (who is claver, nice and charming dog) is there! That is all. You don't need to check anything else. Woo I miss him already~
Thank thank you for all you guys.
Ron and Tadaaki were fantastic hosts! We really enjoyed our time with them and would not hesitate staying with them again the next time we are in Barcelona. We had the pleasure of going out with them both one night for a meal - they are great guys and really interesting to talk to.
Their apartment is awesome, really clean and a great location. Born is the perfect area to stay in - great shops, restaurants and very safe.
We also fell in love with Danko! He is the sweetest dog and like many other reviewers have said - we wanted to put him in our luggage and take him home!
Would highly recommend to anyone looking at staying in Barcelona!
Ron and his beloved Tadaaki are a sweet couple. They are very organized and tidy which in fact I found to be a great education. Very helpful and lots of insider tips about the city. I loved the apartment with it's high ceilings and original mosaic floors. I especially liked sitting on the balcony for morning coffee and again in the evening with a glass or more of wine , watching the world below and the antics beyond .XX
I was a little apprehensive about staying in someone's apartment, but it ended up being the best experience!! Tadaaki and Ron were so great, the apartment is even better than the pictures, the room was fabulous and spacious, and they even had a fabulous list of suggestions for me! The neighborhood is perfect - right near Gotic (where I roamed for days) and close to train, metro and tram. I cannot recommend them highly enough!!
