Alejandro was really helpful. It was very hot and we had a broken fan but it was fixed in a day. We were also able to store our luggage for a few hours which was incredibly helpful. The accommodation feels like a hostel and is quite basic. It was sometimes dirty as the others staying kept making messes. The view and location was beyond perfect and the place is great value for money.
Alejandro was very good about contacting me and staying in contact when I needed it. He was unbelievably prompt and helpful when I asked a question. The apartment is in a great location true to description in cathedral square near la ramblas and you can walk to the beaches. The cleaning staff was also very friendly and went above and beyond. All of the amenities worked and were there like he said. It's the perfect place especially for backpackers. The bathrooms are shared but I never had a problem finding one open to use. It's a great value for the price. The only issue we came across was two cockroaches one downstairs and one in the bathroom.
Overall, the room was perfect for what my friends and I needed. We had the room facing the cathedral, and the view was spectacular. The location was also good as it was near the metro as well as Las Ramblas, which had many restaurants, shops, etc. The only thing I would point out is the shower temperature was unpredictable. But again, the stay was a good value for the price. Thank you for having us, Alejandro!
Basic and noisy but adequate. This listing operates as a hostel, so there are other 6 rooms with people or families in them. The view on the photo can only be seen from 1 room. Great location but bring ear plugs. Without them you will not sleep, as crowds die down at around 4am and noisy building cites start up at 7 or 8. Did not meet the owner. The facilities are also pretty basic. There is 1 fridge and 2 air fans to share between 6 rooms, so be ready to fight for it. Worth it if you get the room with the view.
There is 1 fan for every room. There is a big fridge but guests seldom use it, it's almost empty.
There are 3 rooms with balcony and amazing view to the Cathedral.
And yes, as described this is a hostel, and the price is the price for a private room,
the thing is that Artyom was in Valencia, and found a private apartment for the same price like a room in Barcelona. but Valencia is Valencia, and Barcelona is Barcelona...
The location was amazing and in the middle of the gothic district! Beautiful view from the window. Unfortunately the common areas were very dirty. There were 2 bathrooms, one was very small, the other had a moldy shower and both were very dirty for the first 2 days we were there. I wrote to them about it the first day and got a quick response back that they would be cleaned. The kitchen was also dirty. The washer could only be used at night when the house keeper is not using them.
La estancia en el apartamento de Alejandro ha sido buena. La habitación compartida entre 4 correcta, así como las zonas comunes y los baños. Buena ubicación. Un buen detalle la facilidad para recoger las llaves en otra ubicación. Gracias.
