Amparo made us feel at home - warm welcome, sharing ideas on what to do while in Barcelona (Museums, Restaurants, Parks, etc). Yes, the home was as described - lots of space, 3 bedrooms, outdoor space, balcony gardens and well equipped kitchen. We slept in the front room! We played some ambient sounds (white noise) so the noise was not an issue, we slept like babies. We were close to lots of restaurants, bakery, grocery shops and the like. We were happy to meet in person and also to see her as we were leaving. She was very responsive and made a couple of taxi reservations for us. Safe location, we felt at home. We are coming back!!!
Our host Amparo was ready and waiting for us when we arrived and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was just as we expected from the photographs and had all the facilities stated. This is the first time we have used airbnb and it worked really well. Amparo left us information and guide books as well as all the basics we needed in the kitchen. Coffee maker and pods very welcome. We were told it could be a little noisy but we did not have any problems. Lovely to soak up the local atmosphere of Barcelona. Location was excellent for the marina and la ramblas area and well located for train and metro stations.
It was great that Fredrick met us at the apartment. He was so helpful explaining everything. Even had some great background playing. We were amazed at your artistic, spacious apartment. We want to hire you as our interior decorator! The apartment was easy walking distance to the center. We highly recommend this place!
Thanks Amparo, a great apartment in the centre of the el Gotic area of Barcelona close to plenty of attractions. The apartment is as stated in the listing and we were met by the enthusiastic and welcoming Frederico who ran us through all we needed to know. The apartment is fully equipped and more than suitable for the two couples that made up our group. As stated in previous reviews the apartment looks larger and lighter in the listing photos; however, it was perfect for our group. We arrived on the Friday afternoon of the May day long weekend and those who slept in the front bedroom did not get much sleep due to the noise coming from revellers in the adjacent courtyard and people moving through the street until about 0500 in the morning. We bought some ear plugs and slept soundly for the rest of our stay (noise was much less during the week) but if you are a light sleeper and don't like sleeping with earplugs it may be best to grab the back bedroom (the couple in our group sleeping in this room did not hear one bit of street noise for our entire stay). I would recommend this apartment for a family or two couples.
Amparo's apartment was lovely and light-filled, and very comfortable. We felt very welcome, and there were lovely touches like fresh flowers and drinks in the fridge. She gave us lots of information in the neighbourhood, including maps of how to get to various places, and recommendations of where to eat. The neighbourhood is in walking distance of most of Barcelona's attractions.
Had a brilliant time in Barcelona. I really love this city. Amparo is a perfect host. Great apartment, great location. Do not look anywhere else, just book it
