WELLCOME TO VISIT BARCELONA
We spent great time in Carmen's house. She is a nice host and really helpful. The room is spacious and with tasteful decoration. The location is perfect and accessible to almost any transportation. The whole room is more like a separate studio and I would like to strongly recommend. I will visit again definitely next time. Happy new year!
very nice room, spacious, clean - nothing to complain about. Has been a very relaxed stay.
Carmen is very friendly and willing to do anything to help a guest. She provides a refrigerator and microwave for guests. The apartment is walking distance to the old town sights and many of the Gaudi buildings. The negative was the traffic noise, which I am not used to. The balcony is right on a very busy traffic circle. Also, 80 steps takes some huffing.
Carmin's apartment is an arty, quirky place to stay. Just my style! It is conveniently located for all central Barcelona; many places such as the Sagrada Familia are walkable and the apartment is right by the metro. Carmin and Fernando were very helpful: not minding when we arrived early, providing a fold-out bed for my son, helping with the suitcases up the flights of stairs and letting us leave our cases in the apartment on the day we left. Would definitely stay again. Some feedback for improvement though: the red bulb in the bedside lamp is atmospheric, but makes reading in bed difficult! And as a coffee addict, it would have been good to have a cafetiere or some other means of making coffee, as well as tea.
There may be 85 steps to get to Carmin's apartment but it is so worth it! She and her boyfriend are caring warm people who always showed concern for me. And any question I had about Barcelona they were happy to answer. I would definitely stay at the apt again. You get alot of bang for your buck with not only having a a bedroom but your own little living room as welll.
Carmin has taken great care to make a welcoming, pleasant space. the additional sitting room was very welcome as well as the fridge. The location is great. Make sure you can walk up four flights...as is true here and elsewhere on our journey! (Carmin helped with our bags)
I had an amazing time at Carmin's place. The apartment is ideally located and you can go easily to any place of Barcelona from there. The neighbourhood is friendly, safe, there is a fantastic park a few blocks away and many supermarkets, shops and bars in the area.
The room is very nice, it's quite big and the decoration makes it a relaxing place. Internet works perfectly and the fridge and the micro wave are very convenient to prepare breakfast.
Carmin and Fernando are very friendly and always ready to help you so that you enjoy the your stay to the fullest. I definitely enjoyed my stay with them!
Carmin's place is in a great location for seeing it all in Barcelona. There is a metro very close by, which I used at times, but I mainly walked where I wanted to go. I only met Carmin when I arrived and she was so sweet. I said hello to her in passing one day on the street outside but otherwise did not see her. As described, you have your own living area with a fridge in the hall and you share the shower and separate toilet area. There was never a problem with having to wait for either. There isn't a lift so enjoy the 85 stairs (yep, counted daily!) up to her flat. The bed was squeaky but comfortable and very long. It's quiet when you close the shutters and there is a large fan if needed. It was not as clean as I would have liked however it was still alright. It is clear Carmin cares for her guests and although I didn't see her, I had the impression that she would have been totally available to help if I needed anything. Carmin was fantastic in communicating with me both before and after when I thought I had left something at her place (eventually found it), and in providing directions to her flat.
Staying at Carmin's apt was a good experience. Apt is well-furnished and decoration make it relaxing. the place is well-located, between sagrada and the gothic area. Room is clean and bright. Bed is ok but creaking.
It was a pleasure to stay at Carmen's flat. The central location meant that it was easy to find and easy to access many of the tourist spots on our list within walking distance, or a short tube ride away. The flat itself was a climb to get to (perhaps not suited for the elderly) but once inside, the apartment was clean and had a colourful, creative feel which reflects Barcelona's cultural enthusiasm for design and art.
Correspondence with Carmen was always immediate and a few days before arriving Carmen was happy to give advice on how to get to her apartment from the airport, and for the duration of our stay gave us our privacy, allowing us to easily settle into our bedroom and living space which was very comfortable. Carmen wasn't in the flat much and it would have been good to get some advice on our first night on the best places to go to eat within the area as this was our first visit to the city, but we also appreciated that she was busy and happy to leave us to do our own thing.
The fridge & freezer were a welcome addition to the room which allowed us to eat breakfast in front of our own little balcony which looked onto the busy Plaça Tetuan - a slightly noisy junction but worth it for the sunshine and city buzz!
An overall great stay made better by Carmen's dog which provided much entertainment. Thanks Carmen!
