We stayed at Amparo's charming apartment for 3 nights. Central to Barri Gotíc & walking distance to so many attractions, the location was perfect. Amparo greeted us on arrival and was a very friendly & helpful host before & during our time in Barcelona. Her apartment is clean and beautifully appointed. Maybe a little cosier than the pictures suggest, but certainly enough room for us & enhanced our stay in Barcelona.
Amparo made us feel very welcome and we all felt immediately at home. The 4 of us settled in to this charming space with great enthusiasm. I loved the kitchen and we actually cooked a fabulous dinner in it even though the restaurants nearby were always tempting and we prepared many wonderful breakfasts. The view from the French doors is gorgeous and so different to living in Australia. The narrow streets work so well.
Die Unterkunft ist bezaubernd. Eine sehr gemütliche Wohnung mitten in der Altstadt von Barcelona. Wir wurden herzlich von Frederico, einem Freund von Amparo begrüßt. In der Wohnung waren eine Erstausstattung von Nespessokapseln, Wasser, Bier, Duschgel und Seife. Handtücher liegen bereit. Es gibt ausreichend Stauraum für die Kleidung. Das WLAN ist extrem gut und schnell, das Passwort liegt bereit, ebenso eine schöne Auswahl an Reiseliteratur und Informationsmaterial über Barcelona. Vor dem Reiseantritt bekommt man eine sehr informative Mail von Amparo mit vielen Tipps. Da es doch sehr laut in den Strassen von Barcelona ist, liegen sogar extrem gute Ohrstöpsel bereit. Sehr nett und aufmerksam!
Von unserer Seite gibt es eine ausdrückliche Empfehlung diese Wohnung zu buchen.
The apartment was just what we expected, large, full of character, high ceilings, and in a great location. Amparo was there when we arrived, was very helpful answering our questions, and provided us with all the information we needed to have a great time in Barcelona. Our group loved the location and neighborhood, and highly recommend it!
Beautiful appartment with perfect location in the heart of Barcelona! The host is very welcoming and friendly. Recommend it to all, I would love to come back!
I cannot recommend Amparo and her apartment highly enough. The best feature of this 200-odd year old apartment is the gorgeous high ceilings and the floor to ceiling windows and shutters. The whole apartment is absolutely stunning, much bigger than expected nestled in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. There are two bathrooms equipped with everything you need, the kitchen is beautiful and spacious, again housing everything you will need and the small balcony, patio garden and large living room made for lovely sitting or if you're feeling Spanish 'siesta' areas!! Amparo was an absolutely wonderful host. She went out of her way to made sure we had everything we needed, that we were comfortable and settled in. She met us on arrival with cold water and plenty of maps of Barcelona and took time to tell us where the local supermarket was and the best restaurants and cafes etc were (all of which located within 2-5 minutes walk!). She answered any questions we had, stayed in contact both before and during our trip and even booked our taxi for us when we departed. We have recommended Amparo to friends and family travelling to Barcelona and will not hesitate to stay there again!!!
We truly miss Amparo's Barcelona Flat! Everything about our first airbnb experience was amazing. Amparo's communication and timing were impeccable! Federico arrived to welcome us and show us around the apt. Very kind and helpful man. Amparo even texted us mid-week with an entertainment suggestion for our family. The flat felt like we were transported to an authentic Barcelona and was ideally located in the center of the Bari Gotic, but amazingly quiet and near museums, historic sights, beach, cafe's, shopping, everything! The apt was a retreat for us each afternoon and evening so we could regenerate for the next day's adventure. I would highly recommend and would visit and stay at this place for sure! What an experience for our family, and our two 12 year old boys. Thank you Amparo for opening your home to us so we could experience your part of the world. Many thanks!
About the Host, Amparo
buuuhh.. i think i'm quite normal. I love travelling, nature and my bike.
I like quietness and peace and at the same time I like being close to the bakery, the bars and the cinema!
I love open spaces as well as details, you will find all this in our home.
People say I am a very good travel guide.
