There are no house's rules just the common sense. This is our home-place, so please be respectful with neighbors and don't make noise during the nightime ;) You're on holidays but we'll be living there all year long!!!
The apartment is just as beautiful as the pictures and Katia is a perfect host ! Very easy going for checkin & checkout .... that was just a perfect week-end in Barcelona and I strongly recommand this apartment !
This was our first experience of airbnb, but we'll certainly do it again. The flat was great - a short walk from La Rambla, spacious and all the amenities we needed. Katia and Ale were lovely hosts and very obliging - check in and out was really easy. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Cet appartement est tout à fait fidèle à sa description ; très agréable et idéalement placé au centre de Barcelone, dans un quartier très vivant ; ce qui n'empêche pas d'être au calme dans l'appartement. Il est propre et bien entretenu. Avons été accueillis par la femme de ménage très sympathique. De nombreuses visites peuvent se faire depuis l'appartement à pieds, et le métro - station Liceu - est à 2 pas. Quelques adresses de bons resto dans le quartier sont même proposées. Autre bon point, sa proximité avec le marché la Boqueria. Malgré ses 4 étages à monter, nous étions contents de venir nous reposer un peu. Nous y avons parfaitement bien dormi. Très bonne adresse à retenir.
I throughly enjoyed my stay at the apartment. Couldn't ask for a better location (5 mins for La Rambla, but far enough away that it wasn't noisy all night). The apartment was huge (5 of us stayed with room to spare). And Katia and Ale were great, responsive, and easy going hosts. The only down side was the 4 story walk up...but maybe it was necessary after all the Spanish cured meat and wine. Overall an excellent experience!
Tres bon accueil de Katia; Ici la confiance est de mise; nous avons passé un très bon moment dans cet appartementtrès bien situé à coté des ramblas.
This was a last minute booking for us (after we landed in Barcelona) and Katia couldn't have been any more helpful. She was not available herself for our arrival (5 minutes after our first contact) but had another very nice lady (Cris!) welcome us and let us in.
These were probably the coldest days in Barcelona all this year, so the apartment was a bit chilly, and it is a 4th floor walkup but otherwise it was absolutely perfect. Super clean, spacious, well decorated, well stocked bathroom and bedroom!
Katia & Ale were there to meet us when we arrived and were very helpful and welcoming. The apartment is lovely and inviting and very clean, it is also in a great location which was perfect for our trip.

Hello! we live in Barcelona since 9 years now and we find this city a very nice place to stay in. I'm Katia, I used to work as translator, I love travelling and meet new cultures. I love languages and words, good kitchen and animals. Alessandro is a gold hands young man, he loves surfing-skating and travelling random, music and joking, the altogether, always better!
We are looking forward to meeting interesting people, share our apartments and a little of our catalan and spanish life too! :D
