Great place! The apartment looks exactly as on the pictures – very comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated. The location is perfect for visiting Barcelona. We went there for the Mobile World Congress and it was very easy to go to the location via public transport. Katia and Ale are great hosts. Communication throughout the whole process was easy and fast. Highly recommended!
It was a very nice stay for us in Barcelona. The flat is in a very good location. Alex was very helpful for us!! He recommended very good places, and he was helpful for all our needs! Also they both gave us good information before we get there.
We didn't have any problems in the flat. It was totally satisfactory for us. The only thing that can be improved might be preventing the bad smell in the bathroom. It is not very problematic, but sometimes it is annoying.
And an info about the heating: Heating is provided by mobile electrical heaters. For each room, a heater is available (There are totally 4 of them I think.) However, the rooms got enough warm for us.
Shortly, if we go again to Barcelona, we would definitely stay again at Alex&Katia. Thank you guys for your hospitality! Hope to see you again! :)
Nice place.. very cosy.
Katia and Ale are really nice people.
We recommand that place.
Thank again for everything.
What a pleasure it was to stay in this spacious, lovely apartment! Great location just off the Rambla and near the wonderful outdoor market. Katia and Ale could not have been nicer! Highly recommend this apartment for spaciousness, cleanliness, comfort and location!
I had a great stay with my 3 kids at the fully equipped flat. We walked nearly everywhere from there and found good restaurants very close by, too. Katia and Alex are endlessly helpful, full of recommendations and hospitality. Thank you for a great Barcelona weekend!
We enjoyed our stay here, the decor was simple and fun. Be prepared for a a leg work out up to the top floor of this apartment. The stairwell was a bit dingy and stinky sometimes, but that's what you get with an older building.
There were some minor inconveniences, the toilet seat was broken (would not stay up) the lighting in the bathroom was dismal and the oven was not functioning (they have a microwave grill instead). But the clothes washing machine was easy to use and did a good job.
We enjoyed the wood beam ceiling and tile floors and had lovely breakfasts at the dining table from food we bought nearby at the mercado. The location is great and it was fun to be part of the lively local neighborhood.
It was a little difficult to reach Katie and Ale sometimes because their phone did not have a message service, it they did not answer we could not leave a message. One day we waited for them to arrive in the morning so we could pay them for an extra night, but they did not show up. Later we got an e-mail from them saying they would come at another time. It was not a big deal, we worked it out. Overall they were very friendly and accommodating.
Very nice place in an excellent lively location. We stayed over New Years and found it perfect for bars, restaurants and nice shops. The area can get a bit seedy at night but is never threatening.
Communication with the hosts was excellent and they were extremely friendly and completely understanding that we left the place in a bit of a mess.
The flat itself is very nice - not huge amount of natural light in the bedrooms but that seems to be common for Spanish city flats. Some very small gripes - the shower is annoyingly weak for example - but overall a great place to stay and for the price it seems an absolute bargain. Would definitely return.
They are really kind!!!
Really nice and understanding persons. When we came into their appartment, the WIFI connection was disturbed for a while and Katia and Ale really took time to fixed this for us. Not only that, the appartment is nice, clean and spacious... It's really nearby everywhere...
This will be our fixed address if we visit Barcelona again... :)
CHEERS, Kendy and Wesley...
Our first experience with Airbnb and we were very pleased with our stay. A great location, close to metro and many good walks. Very clean spacious apartment for our group of 4. We felt very comfortable in the city and enjoyed our stay immensely. If we came back, which I hope we can do, we would definitely want to stay here again. Thanks Katia and Ale.
Alex and Katia are sooo nice people, it was just great meeting them! They waited for us over an hour because our plane was late. The apartment is also chic, tidy, all perfect. The only problem we had was that it was a bit chilly during the night. Maybe it's just normal in Barcelona during such cold days as it really was very cold. But still, to be fair, it was a downside, but really the only one.
