  • agréable appartement situé à proximité immédiate de la plage. Un supermarché est situé à 50 m de l'appartement. Le centre de la vieille ville est tout proche, l'accés au métro aussi. Idéal pour un séjour de quelques jours. Quelques inconvénients tout de même : un peu bruyant car situé en rez de chaussée. La propreté de l'appartement laissait quelque peu à désirer lors du check in. Nous l'avons signalée à Christian qui se proposait de faire intervenir une femme de ménage. Le rideau de douche est par contre hors d'usage et un changement s'impose. Mise à part ces quelques points négatifs, l'appartement reste sympa et il ne faut pas grand chose pour que la satisfaction soit optimale.

  • Je recommande ce logement, idéalement placé, entre le coeur de la ville et les plages. Appartement propre et spacieux, parfait pour un couple.

  • Very fast and efficient check-in and check-out.
    Perfect location and a very nice little studio indeed. The conditioner was a bit too loud and hard to sleep to, but overall a very great great experience!

  • We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It's nicely decorated, the kitchen is well equipped, we had everything we needed. Kristian couldn't come himself to let us in but he sent a friend who was very nice and welcoming, showed us everything etc. The apartment is only a 5-minute-walk away from the beach, a supermarket is right around the corner, an awesome market with fresh seafood/meat/produce is right next to the supermarket, the Barceloneta metro station is only 5 minutes away, too - it's absolutely fantastic.

    There are cafés and great places to eat very close by, too; we recommend the "Bro" if you're looking for a delicious burger and the "Somorrostro" if you're looking for something a little more sophisticated.

    Our only complaint would be that the apartment could have been a little cleaner overall (mouldy shower curtain, dust on the floor), and in general there seems to be a mould problem (maybe because it's so close to the sea), we could see some on the walls. We didn't mind it all that much because we only stayed there for a week and simply ignored it, but someone who is allergic to mould should reconsider.
    But other than that our stay there was nice.

  • The apartment was newly renovated and quite lovely when you consider closeness to metro, beach, restaurants and bars. Perhaps Barceloneta has a water/drainage problem because our shower overflowed at the floor level. It was cleaned up as we requested, and new towels appeared, as we requested, but the shower was not fixed. Once you knew how to deal with it, it was certainly liveable. As another reviewer wrote, there was no way we could leave our luggage (we, too, had a late flight) but fortunately we had seen lockers available at the beach, and our problem was solved. But we solved it ourselves. There was no help from the owner or the man who let us in.

  • The apartment is well located and the decor is very nice.
    The only negative thing that I have to say is cleanliness, which was pretty basic.

  • Das Appartement liegt zwischen Hafen und Altstadt, man kann vieles fußläufig erreichen, auch die Metrostation ist nicht weit.
    Das Appartement befindet sich im Erdgeschoss, öffnet man die Haustür, steht man schon drin. Fenster gehen zur Straße raus und sind aus Milchglas, man kann also nicht rausschauen. Das Appartement ist ein Raum in 3 Bereiche, Schlafzimmer (eine halbe Ebene nach oben), Wohnzimmer (eine halbe Ebene nach unten) und Küche (ebenerdig) eingeteilt. Dann gibt es noch ein kleines Badezimmer. Die Möblierung ist ok, Ikea sei Dank. Die Räumlichkeiten waren allerdings ziemlich verdreckt, in der Küche überall auf den Möbeln und dem Herd ein Fettfilm, der Kühlschrank von innen schmierig und Schimmel rund um die Türdichtung. Das Besteck, Tassen/Gläser sahen auch nicht besser aus. Wir haben erst mal den Kühlschrank und alle Oberflächen gereinigt und desinfiziert. Schimmel in der Dusche, Dreck und Staub am Treppenaufgang, hinter und unter dem zweiten Bett Glassplitter und Dreck, das Wohnzimmer roch sehr intensiv nach Schimmel. Allerdings reagierte der Vermieter sofort auf meine SMS und schickte jemanden zum Putzen vorbei. Das Bettzeug war soweit in Ordnung. Es gab allerdings für 10 Tage nur ein Duschhandtuch und ein kleines Handtuch pro Person und ein Geschirrtuch.
    In der Ausstattung des Appartements ist eine Kaffeemaschine (Dolce Gusto). Einen Wasserkocher gibt es nicht. Topf und Pfanne waren angebrannt, eine Paella-Pfanne war in Ordnung.
    Wir haben uns arrangiert in den 10 Tagen, aber wiederkommen würden wir nicht.

    The apartment is situated between harbor and historic center. You can reach a lot of things by feet and the metro-station is not far.
    The apartment is located on the ground floor, you open the front-door and you are in. The windows are facing to the street and are made of frosted glass so you cannot look outside. It is one big room, divided in 3 areas: Bedroom (half level upstairs), living room (half level downstairs), kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor. The furniture is ok, thanks to IKEA. But everything was very dirty and greasy, mold in the fridge, dust and dirt behind and under the beds, mold in the shower. Broken glass was behind the second bed, smell of mold especially in the “living room”. However, after sending a message to the landlord, he immediately sent someone to clean up, after that it was a little better, but we still had to clean and disinfect a lot by ourselves. The bedclothes were ok so far, but we had only one big and one small towel each for 10 days.
    The coffee machine is a Dolce Gusto, there is no water boiler, the pot and the pan were both burnt, so you could not use them for cooking.
    We got along these 10 days, but we won’t come back.
