  • Perfect place to stay - right in the heart of Barcelona! The apartment was a bit small but if you just need a clean and cozy place to sleep than it's great :) Recommended!

    We arrived quite late to Barcelona - not a problem at all for Marc, he just the keys in the special deposit machine without any additional fees.

  • On the contrary, we didn't have a good experience with Marc. We arrived early and were advised to check in anytime after 1pm so we left our bags there & went out for the day. Unfortunately, we were robbed & spent the rest of the day trying to sort out police reports & other administrative matters. This took us till the evening which left us rushing back to Marcs before his office closed at 8pm - we arrived at 7:20pm but Marc was not there. Instead it was his girlfriend's friend who was very busy playing computer games who handed us 4 apartment keys minus the main door and building key.

    When we realised shortly after putting our bags in the apartment, the guy in the office was gone and it was all locked up before 8pm. We gave Marc a call who kept hanging up on us and sent us an SMS to contact him via SMS. We smsed him twice asking for the 'friend' to pop by with the keys but received no reply.

    This left us stranded as we couldn't go out for dinner else there was no way of getting back into the apartment (building).

    The next day Marc told us that he left early the day before for his girlfriend's birthday. We didn't even get an apology as he had too many people queueing to see him with issues (no hot water, booking stuff ups etc).

    In a nutshell, the apartment is well located just off Las Rambla but Marc's management of the apartments need great improvement.

    Response from Marc:

    I'm so sorry for the inconvience. I understand that you had a problem, but you could tell me that you would arrive late, because you told me that you were gonna arrive at 13h. Because I was waiting for you from 9h until 19h.

  • Thanks for the good stay! The apartment is small but has everything that we need. Every item is working well in the apartment with good hot water and it is really in a very good location!

    The apartment suited us very well as we spent very little time in the apartment being tourists. Really Iove the superb location!

    Thanks Marc :)

  • Marc's apartment is situated in the historical part of Barcelona and of course it is the biggest bonus. Only 1 minute walk from La Rambla and Barri Gotic. 2 minutes walk from the nearest metro station Drassanes. The apartment was rather comfortable, clear and included all necessary technics like washing machine, hair dryer, fridge and electric cooker. There are a lot of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The only problems are thin walls and view from the window - in 2 meters there is the wall of the opposite building. But it's not a big problem if you need an apartment only to sleep. Marc left us clear towels and printed information about Barcelona and it's sightseeing. If you want to live cheap in the very heart of Barcelona - Marc's apartment is a good variant for you.

  • L'appartement est très bien placé, c'est malheureusement le seul point positif ! Marc n'est pas vraiment un "hôte" puisqu'il a carrément un bureau pour gérer ses nombreux appartements, on est loin de l'esprit Airbnb ... La propreté n'était pas au top, c'est très sombre, et les photos doivent dater de l'époque des travaux fraîchement réalisés car le lieu a changé et pas en bien , on a même eut des surprises avec l'eau chaude .. Ils ont aussi décidé de changer les serrures en plein séjour sans nous avertir avant, heureusement que nous sommes repassés avant d'aller dîner .. Nous sommes très déçus, et nous ne recommandons pas cette adresse .. Mieux vaut privilégier un hôte qui prend plaisir à recevoir les gens et leur faire découvrir sa ville, et non un businessman qui attend votre chèque ..

  • Logement conforme au descriptif...
    Idéalement situé,donnant sur La Rambla, permettant l'accès aux commerces et aux transports en commun...
    Propre et simple...parfait pour 1 petit séjour à 2...
    Seul bémol: voisins parfois un peu bruyants et ...les murs ne sont pas très épais!!

  • The room was tidy, and just as expected. Everything we needed for a short weekend break.

    Didn't see Marc once, but his 'friends' were always about. One problem with the toilet, it not flushing! That wasn't treated for the duration, but any other problems or questions where answered quickly.
    Recommend to anyone looking for a weekend on las rambles

  • We had a nice stay at Marcs apartment. The walls are very thin but for the price it is okay. Great location!

  • Séjour très agréable. La description du logement correspondait à la réalité.
