  • Everything was great!

    February 2014
  • One of the best locations I've stayed ever. The bedroom and bathroom were both great. Erwin has also been an extremely great host. Overall, a definite recommendation.

  • I had a great time staying at Erwin's place; the room was a good size and the bathroom was fantastic. It almost has a private entrance so you don't feel like you're imposing too much on your host. Shower had good hot water, pressure. Overall a lovely experience that I would highly recommend - a bargain for the price.

  • Although the weather was bad last weekend, Erwin's apartment made my day easier. Erwin and Isabel are very nice, friendly and welcoming. Erwin helped me a lot during my stay. They are so kind to let me do early check in and late check out because of my flight schedule. All in all, they are great to live with!

    Now about the apartment. Great location, walking distance and easy access to metro to all attractions. With the detailed guide from Erwin, you don't even need a map to find the place from the airport. 10 minutes walk to the port, 15 minutes walk to the beach, 7 minutes to La Lambra and metro. The neighborhood feels safe at night. The room and bathroom is super clean. The bathroom is big enough and have everything you need. Super comfortable pillows! The room is exactly the same as shown in the picture. So you will not be disappointed.

    The only downside about this room is that it's kinda noisy at night (between 12 to 3) there was a sound of rolling door going on all night and it was super loud. And sometimes you can hear party people walking by. But as long as you are not a light sleeper or you have your ear plug with you, it won't bother you at all.

  • I have just spent a pleasant week in Erwin's flat with the en suite bathroom. He & his partner made me feel at home & allowed me to use their kitchen facilities.There was plenty of drawer & cupboard space & I even had a shelf in their fridge. They were very relaxed about my comings & goings & always found time for a chat or an enquiry. I found the location convenient walking distance to major sights & there were useful neighbourhood food shops & eating places. There is metro access fairly near, though I did not need it. This was my first experience of sharing an apartment on holiday & I found it very agreeable.

  • Erwin and Isabel were friendly and welcoming and the room and bathroom were a good size, clean and comfortable. Great location, and the neighbourhood was very vibrant late into the night. It was good to have breakfast on the Terrace. Thanks.

  • just what I needed: clean, spacious and quiet. thanks!

    September 2013
  • Irwin was a wonderful host, always willing to provide directions or suggestions of places to see and visit. Our stay was comfortable, the bathroom was very nice though the room could get stuffy when the AC was off. The street is also quite noisy, so if you're a light sleeper bring earplugs. Thanks so much Irwin!

  • We had a great stay at Erwin's place. He was out of town while we were there so we didn't meet him, but his friend met us and showed us around. And although erwin wasnt around, both times i called him he was very helpful. The room was a nice size and spotlessly clean, with a newly fit out ensuite bathroom. The apartment had a well equiped kitchen, a big terrace and air con which was nice for the hot Spanish summer nights. The apartment was in a good location, within walking distance to most things we wanted to see (and about a 10 minute walk to the airport shuttle bus at placa catalyunia), however it is a terrible spot if you arrive with a car (which we did), and at night it doesn't feel like the safest area. Overall, it is a great clean room in a good central location, and I would recommend it to anyone!
