It was my first experience with AirBnb and Pinar made it a very positive one. We could always come to her with questions and she was very helpful and nice. Oh, and the location! Couldn't be more perfect. Very nice restaurants and café's in the neighbourhood.
Pinar was very gracious and welcoming. Her guide selections were helpful. I had Problems with the 30 day cell phone I bought in Zurich. I was told by Pinar and her friend the phone was cheap and they couldnt help. Pinar and her companion were unavailable and not assisting in reserving Museum tickets for timed entry meant I would have to wait 1 to 2 hours in 30 degree heat. I am 69 years old. Most disappointing was her inability to confirm a previously scheuled solo tour of Sagrada Familia which did not occur.
People under age 40 who have all the answers will probably have a good experience.
i am very sorry about your experience, but we fixed your phone and your connection, the problem was you were just unable to use it.
i think its unfair to say that i was unable to reserve your museum entries, as you didn't asked me to do it.
anyway, i am sorry for the inconvenience which i caused unknowingly.
This was my third stay with Pinar and she was as friendly, welcoming and helpful as always.
The room is large and clean, and I had full use of the bathroom and kitchen.
The apartment itself is in a great area of the city, 15min walk from Placa Catalunya and La Rambla.
The area around the apartment is full of restaurants and bars and is great for a night out.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Barcelona.
Pinar was friendly and welcoming. The room was as pictured and clean. We arrived in Barcelona on a 35 degree day and Pinar provided us with a fan and bottled water in an attempt to relieve the heat. However, the heat combined with the occasional smell of tobacco smoke was slightly off putting. Overall the listing was suitable for our short stay - thank you Pinar
Pinar est souriante et cool. Elle nous très bien acceuillit malgré le fait qu'on est arrivée très tard dans la nuit. Serviable si vous avez besoin de direction. L'appartement est bien situé, à 5 min du métro. C'est un appartement typique de Barcelone.
Il y a tous les éléments nécessaire dans la chambre ( parapluie, sèche cheveux, ventilateur, gel douche/shampoing, serviettes de bain/plage, guide de Barcelone, internet). La cuisine et le salon sont à disposition.
L'appartement est sympa et très bien situé, entouré de bars et restos, proche des ramblas, et il y a plusieurs arrêts de métro à proximité. Pinar et son copain ont été très accueillants, ont respecté notre intimité tout en étant disponible pour nous donner des conseils ou autre ! Pinar respire la joie de vivre !!
Myself and my companion had an incredible time for the short stay we had at pinars apartment. She is very friendly and was very honest with us having guests who were also a ton of fun to hang around. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have an awesome time in Barcelona! Thanks Pinar! You're a legend
