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.
All are guests will have their keys, they will have their suite with their own bathroom. The suite has clean sheets and a blanket. Also big towels for the shower. The room has tv and a balcony with table. The guests can use the kitchen to prepar their food, and they can eat on the bar in the kitchen, in the room and also in the living room.
Other Things to Note
We live in a building with lots of neighbors so we need our guests to respect the place and to be silent in the night after 23.00 h.
we like to have people that respect our house and our things. we have a dog so we prefer to have guests who likes dogs as well.
Muy majos, la habitación tenía todo lo que necesitaba y la ubicación me vino perfecta para mi trabajo. Volveré siempre que sea posible!
Since my arrival was quite early I send a message to the couple to ask if it was no problem to store my luggage. They were friendly and telling me to come by and put my luggage in the room. They were still cleaning the room from the previous guest, so that was nice to see I would get an all fresh room.
The room is big, really big, with your own bathtub, toilet and bidet. The small balcony lets you enjoy and reflect about your day in the city.
You are also welcome to use their living and kitchen. A friendly couple and I would recommend staying here.
Giorgia and Eduard was a great host. Nice location close to everything, cosy apt makes you feel at home instantly with a warm welcome. They answer all my questions and ready to help. I made a instant friend with there pet Domingo clean and beautiful educated dog, I will love to see again.
Georgia and Eduard were great hosts and the space is perfect! There is a private bathroom and balcony, it is located well, and they give you space to use the fridge and kitchen so your stay is very easy
This is the perfect place to stay for a central location that where you can walk to the majority of the best tourist sites. And if you don't want to walk, the subway is only about a 2 minutes walk away on a central line.
The bed is very comfortable, but if you don't like flat pillows, you might want to bring something to bulk them up.
The balcony is wonderful, but bring bug spray in the summertime for the mosquitos that are in the greenery in the courtyard (though, oddly, you can leave the balcony door open and they won't come into the room).
Having your own bathroom in an AirBnb is a marvelous luxury and worth any extra money. They also are good about letting you use the kitchen as long as you clean up after.
The hosts are nice people, but if you're looking for a super-friendly BnB experience, this is not it. These are people who are renting space to make some extra money. This worked fine for me as I like to be left on my own, but might be an issue for some.
1) wifi isn't strong enough to reach the whole house. They accommodated by moving the wifi, but then needed to move it back to so I had to ask for it to be moved again to have it in my room.
2) the room is only OK clean. The bathroom fixtures were clean, but there was a pretty thick layer of dust on the shelves (not that any were free as all shelves were filled with hosts goods) and dog hairs in the bedroom which are brought in with every pass through the house. Also, my towel smelled ok for a day, then smelled like it had been sitting in the bottom of a hamper after one use. Drying it in the sun helped, but not much.
3) their dog is friendly but very untrained. I was jumped up on, licked a lot, and even nipped a couple times when he was excited. Also, the whole house smells vaguely of dog. A couple days with the door to the house closed and the balcony doors open and I didn't smell him anymore, at least in the room. But if you're a dog person, none of this will bother you.
4) You're not the only guest. They have a total of three rooms to rent (though this could be positive if you have a group)
we'd like to know if danielle thought at least for a second to enjoy her vacations or she just spent her time looked in the room thinking about how many bad things she could write about us. also is funny because she decided to write the positive things as private text so people can't see it. (really nice and helpful from her)
When we first met Danielle we didnt really have a good feeling, Eduard recived her and he called me saying he didnt like her and her way to be. she was complaining about our dog which is a lovely animal, so we felt not really confortable, and she told us that she IS NOT A SOCIAL PERSON.Even though we were nice to her and also helped her to find a place to hang out in the night with her friend. (we are not an issue for anybody look at all are other reviews! people like us!). Our house is cleaned and nobody in 2 years never said that it smell of dog. never!! also most of the things she is complaining about are explained on are schedule! so she should know that the house is shared whit other guests and that we live with a labrador. you dont like dogs you just dont book our place! thats it Danielle! our dog is not untrained! he use to say hi to people, he is a friendly dog, all our guests in 2 years fell in love with his super cute personallity. you are the first one that complains about it! because you are not kind as person.
and sorry, but really you are writing about the fact you had to ask us about moving the wifi? and about mosquitos? i mean really? is summer time mosquitos are around lady! and that pillows were too flat? omg!!
And also you had to make a comment about the fact that we are making extra money with airbnb! WHY DO YOU THINK PEOPLE DOES AIRBNB? FOR FUN? and anyway this is not your business what we do with are money we dont even know you!
how disagreeable are you woman!
let me tell you danielle, you are the most BITTER person I've ever known! your spirit of life is very unpleasant. You better book a Hilton Hotel next time, but before that make sure that you visit a doctor. we really hope he can cure your bad vibes. you are a creapy person. we promise!
I decided to pay a last minute visit to friends in Barcelona and I looked for a room in the center and I found one available at Georgia and Eduard's place.
Georgia answered very quick to my inquiry and the booking was finalized only 2 days later.
I was supposed to get the bunk-bed room but I was nicely surprised when Georgia told me that the double room was free and for me.
They don't live exactly as centrical as I was looking for but the location is great actually! Metro just at a few meters of front door but it is easy, fast and nice to get to the center on foot.
Their flat is a jewelry! High ceilings, spacious and the decoration has been thought with a very good sense (for me!) and into the small details.
I arrived later than what I had told them and fortunately they were home and welcomed me very nicely without a remark (sorry guys again). I didn't get to talk much with Eduard but Georgia is a very nice person, helpful and available! And you can't miss Domingo, their dog that will welcome you greatly!
I left very early in the morning and didn't have the chance to say goodbye and thank you to this lovely couple but I will go back there another time for sure and I recommend this address without a single doubt!
My stay was too quick but I definitely enjoyed my time there! First booking on Airbnb and it was perfect!
Molt gracies Georgia y Eduard!!
Hello Giorgia Y Eduard,
I told you in the morning that I wouldn't show up and I did not canceled my booking. You got the money, not the guest.
All the best,
