Nous avons été bien accueillis par Gerlie, une amie de Gabie et Dan, qui nous a donné quelques renseignements utiles.
L'appartement correspond à la description qui en est faite : petit, mais très bien situé, tout en étant au calme.
L'appartement était conforme à la description. La terrasse super avec le beau temps. La situation très bonne à 2 pas de l'arc de triomphe et du quartier El Born. L'accueil très chaleureux avec gerlie. Je recommande cet appartement
We weren't happy with our stay here as our host's friend didn't come to meet us with the keys on our first night. Our flight was very delayed due to air traffic control strikes in France and we arrived at 3am, when we were supposed to land at midnight. Before we took off, I tried to contact Gaby and Dan's friend, who was meeting us with the keys, to tell her about the delay. At first she said it was OK to meet us at 1am, although she clearly wasn't happy about it. When the flight was delayed further, she didn't answer the phone, didn't reply to my message and hung up on one of my calls. When we arrived in Barcelona we had nowhere to stay. Air Bnb were very helpful and refunded us a night in a hotel which we found ourselves. We stayed at the flat the remaining 2 nights of our stay. It was clean and light, but damp and small. The best bit about the flat is the roof terrace and the location. There's no hairdryer - be warned! Based on the unreliability of these hosts I definitely wouldn't recommend them and wouldn't go back to them.
Sorry for the problems you had due to arriving late at 3am. Airbnb told us you were staying in a hotel as you were arriving so late, and we assumed that was your plan, and ourselves and our friend went to bed as it was the middle of the night. I don't feel we were unreliable in this instance - seems to have been a miscommunication.
Clean, modern, small, pleasant and very central flat. Wonderful large roof garden (accessible via the separate stairs outside the flat) - great for evening meals and breakfast in the sun. There are no proper windows to the bedroom (a dividing wall allows light over the top section). You have to be careful not to put toilet paper down the toilet as, similar to many other flats in the area, the plumbing can get blocked. Perfect for two - was a bit tighter for three.
The flat was quiet simple but it was enougth to stay for few days. The area was one of the best place of Barcelona for us. There were a lot of restaurants/tapas/little shops to enjoy Barcelona by night (and day!). The flat is very well placed in the city. We went by feet from there to a several of well known places.
And we had a good presentation of the area and the flat by a very nice friend of the host.
To conclude: a good flat if you are staying in Barcelona for few days.
The location is great, and the flat is clean: close to Ciutadella Park and in the nice neighborhood of El Borne, and the Picasso museum that you can visit for free every first sunday of the month. It is not far from Barceloneta.
Gaby & Dan were available whenever I had questions and made sure everything was going well but were not able to meet me. I was very well welcomed by Gerlie.
They recommended La Tantarantana which is one of my favourite restaurant in Barcelona, you need to come early or book to get a table. Get the artichoke and sausage!
I would recommend this place.
Nous avons été accueilli au pied de l'Arc de Triomphe par une amie des propriétaires, à l'heure convenue. Bien que ne parlant pas le Français, elle est très sympathique et accueillante.
Bel appartement, très propre, conforme à la description (assez peu équipé tout de même), comportant une vraie cuisine. Très bien situé, à seulement quelques mètres de l'Arc de Triomphe et du métro.
La terrasse est sympa, dommage qu'il n'y ait pas d'accès direct depuis l'intérieur de l'appartement.
Le lit bébé fourni est un vrai lit bébé, ce qui est une très bonne chose.
Les points faibles sont : les escaliers permettant d'accéder à l'appartement et à la terrasse sont exigus ; il n'y a pas de volet ; le mur entre les deux chambres ne montent pas jusqu'au plafond.
A recommander si vous recherchez la simplicité à un prix correct.
