  • I had the pleasure of staying at Alexanders beautiful apartment and great terrace with a fantastic view. Alexander is a very nice, service minded and gentle person. I found the location to be perfect as well as the room with a very comfortable bed, direct access to a shared balcony and absolutely no noise from the street. The room and the apartment itself was very clean and tidy.

  • Alexander is a kind and gracious host. I have been traveling for about a month now and have a fair number of comparisons. The room is of normal size and the bed is comfortable. It is very simply furnished and the shared bathroom is down the hallway. I found his place not worth the price for several reasons. At this price, one should have a private bathroom and a more well appointed room. The location is not ideal and one can hear pretty much everything going on around you. I had a cough when I arrived and because the walls were so thin, I fear I kept people awake. If Alexander had priced the room at $50, I would not have been so disappointed in my stay. After staying in several major cities, I have a good sense of what one should expect for the price. This place is not worth it.

  • The room is not quite as nice as the actual pictures. There are a whole range of house rules not stated in the booking form that are presented to you on check in. The host varies greatly from friendly to down right rude when you ask him for help or advice. He has written everything down in a manual and refers you to the manual instead of answering your questions outright. The hallway echos greatly thus you cna hear the tiniest noise in the apartment. Overpriced for what the accomodation is. The best thing about this accomodation is its location to gay bars.

  • This was the best place I stayed on my 30 day vacation.

    Alex and I met a day prior to my booking so I could get the keys and check out the room. He called me the following day after I was supposed to arrive to make sure that I got in OK and that everything was fine.

    My stay was very enjoyable. The room was one of three in his 5th floor penthouse. The room was very clean and had the basic furnishings you would expect: bed, desk, bedside table, lamp, adequate outlets, bath towels, extra pillows and blankets, and an oscillating fan (an essential for a room in Barcelona without air conditioning).

    I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

  • We had a very good time in Alexanders beautiful apartment. The room was great with a comfortable bed and a nice little terrace. The flat was clean and nicely furbished. The other guests were friendly and considerate and you never had to wait long to get in the shared bathroom. We could use the main terrace as well, which offers sun in the morning and a beautiful view on the city. Alexander was really nice and helpful. He was always up for a little chat and provided us with all kind of information we needed to make our trip just perfect. Thank you! :)

About
Scandinavian living in Barcelona. I am now a physical therapist and have a back ground in working in hotels and restaurants. I have worked 9 years as an airline steward. I speak 7 languages like danish, swedish, norwegian, german, french, spanish and english though I prefere not to write too long letters in french. I love traveling and to meet new friendly people and spend loads of time in the gym and eat healthy food! Because of my background you can expect efficiency and professionalism when you book a room or an apartment with me. I also had the honor to be awarded by another site like Airbnb as Host of the year 2011 :-) Welcome to Barcelona!
