Hi there! we are a couple,im italian and my boyfriend is spanish, we both live and work in Barcelona and this is our house. We are renting two nice and cheap private room in our flat.
Our Flat is really big, 120 mq, peaceful and quiet. Located in the right eixample area, which is one of the nicest neighborhood in town. We live close to all the main important things you need to see in Barcelona: the city center; Passeig the gracia which is the main street of barcelona for shopping; Arco de Triunfo and sagrada familia; the beach; Ciutadella Park; and gracia area. You can get everywhere from here just having a walk!
We also have metro stop just on the same square.
I stayed for three nights. I was not very happy with the accommodations.
There was a shelf right above the bed, so it was awkward to sit up. There was a window in the bedroom but no curtain, so there was no privacy.
The shower was a death trap. One side is exposed, and the glass partition on the other side wasn't even connected to the bottom. So it spilled water like crazy all over the floor. And the wood on the shower floor (you can see it in the pictures) wasn't securely attached, so they were constantly slipping under my feet. Between the unattached shower floor and the insane amounts of water on the bathroom floor, it was quite dangerous trying to get out of the shower. Giorgia said I would have to mop after every shower. Not a good solution to the problem.
I stayed over New Year's, and they had a party. It was busy and loud into the early morning hours (about 4 a.m.)
Giorgia & Eduard were pleasant enough people, but I wouldn't stay again.
Casa davvero molto bella e situata in una posizione strategica: vicinissima sia a monumenti che alla movida (a piedi o in metropolitana). Non ho potuto conoscere Giorgia ma Eduard è stato molto gentile e disponibile e il loro cane è un coccolone educato.
Very beautiful house strategically located: really close (by walk o by underground) to monuments and nightlife. I didn't meet Giorgia but Eduard is kind and helpful, a good host; their dog is educated and cuddly.
Falta de limpieza y cuidado en los espacios destinados para el inquilino. Lástima ya que la casa tiene mucho estilo y una buena ubicación; Eduard fue muy amable conmigo.
-Cuarto de baño descuidado, desagüe de la ducha atascado, sin papel higiénico.
-Dormitorio con polvo, falta de limpieza general.
We stayed at Giorgia's and Eduard's place for 4 nights. The apartment is really cosy and everything worked perfectly! Would come back! Oh, and the dog is really cute!!! ;)
The room was perfect for the two of us and Giorgia's dog, Domingo, greeted us upon arrival. We were also lucky enough to be able to take Domingo for a walk at Tetuan park right across from the apartment. In truth, Domingo took us for a walk! Great hostess and centrally located to the Metro and plenty of eating/drinking places.
This was one of the strangest experiences we went through.
We arrived to a dirty room with a terrible view to the balconies of other people. Eduard didn't even bother to greet us.
Giorgia said the previous guests had left and she needed time to clean the room. That was fine, we left the property to grab something to eat before coming back for a rest.
On the second night, we came in at 11:00pm and they quickly shut the door to their room. Then Eduard started screaming at Giorgia and cursing in Spanish. The guy kept on raising his voice and banging on various objects. This went on till 2:00am. We woke up again at 7:00am with Eduard's screams and the dog howling.
It was so uncomfortable, we started looking for somewhere else to go, but couldn't find anything immediately available. Unfortunately we had to spend another two nights there. The mood of the house was extremely tense and uncomfortable.
We understand that couples get into fights and have arguments, but Eduard had absolutely no regards for the fact that they had guests over and didn't even bother lowering his voice! This was very disrespectful.
Also, we received absolutely no help from Eduard or Giorgia as far as the tourist sites go.
There is also a huge dog in the house, which maybe a problem for some people.
To sum it down:
Negatives: Fights between the couple! Uncomfortable mattress, room has a really bad view, dog maybe an issue for some people, house is pretty old and rundown, no help as far as tourist sites go.
Positive: Good location
I stayed only one night but Eduard was really kind to meet me, and ensured I had cold filtered water, I didn't get to meet Gloria as I went to bed early. My room was a single bed in a tiny room but extremely comfortable and I slept very well. The house is spacious and their dog is so sweet, a happy yellow lab that's full of love. Thank you to Eduard for your hospitality!
Pratique et joliment décoré.
Giorgia est très pro.
Giorgia is a very accomodating host and all the reservation process went perfect. Very flexible with timetables and communication went really fast.
In fact I did not stay in the house as the booking was for my nephew.
He said everything went well :)
The house is located ten minutes walk from the city centre and the metro station is a few meters away.
There is dog in the house, Domingo. Take into account that if you have some allergy.
In other words, a convenient place to stay in Bcn
Estuve una noche en casa de Eduart y Giorgia y me experiencia ha sido muy buena. Muy atentos, gente sencilla, su perro (Domingo) un encanto. Además la casa está muy bien situada, tienes la parada del metro a 1 minuto.
La próxima vez que vaya a Barcelona repito seguro.
Gracias por todo chicos!!
