  • We were 4 girls staying in Katia & Alex's apartment for 3 nights and we have nothing but brilliant things to say about our visit.
    This apartment is absolutely perfect for a stay in Barcelona. It's in a fantastic location - only a 2 minute walk from La Rambla and the wonderful food market.
    The apartment has everything you need including towels which is perfect when packing only hand luggage and it is exactly like the pictures. As it says in the description there are a lot of stairs so it might not suitable for the elderly or disabled but we loved it and it had all the charm of an old traditional Spanish building.
    Alex was a great host and greeted us warmly and recommended places for us to eat and drink. As our flight home was late in the evening, he kindly let us keep our bags in the apartment until 7pm on our last day which was so helpful.
    The whole trip was great and a brilliant first experience using Airbnb.
    I have no issue recommending this apartment to anyone!
    Many thanks,
    Jess

  • We had a wonderful time in the perfect Flat of Katia and Ale. They are perfect hosts, we enjoyed our stay very much. Very good communication with many helpful informations. The Flat is spacious and super clean. Everything was just perfect, and so well located (5mins. from Rambla). We look forward to visit Barcelona again and stay here. The Airport Pickup was perfect too. Many thanks!!!

  • 6 of us travelled to Barcelona for a 6 day holiday and had a great time, which was made even better by Katia & Alex's apartment!

    Hosts - Both Katia & Alex were really nice and friendly. They kindly offered to arrange pickup services to and from the airport, and offered great tips on bars / restaurants to visit. They were also extremely responsive in their messages, always making prompt replies.

    Accommodation - The flat was really spacious - there were 6 of us, and we could have had 2 more with no problems. The place was also really clean, which was nice. All in all, it was extremely comfortable, with a great living room area where we could relax and chill. Wifi was great, beds and chairs were comfortable, sufficient towels provided etc. nothing more we could ask for really.

    Location - The location of the apartment is superb as well - 5 minutes from La Rambla and the subway station, and really close to the plaza catalunya. There were also many great bars and restaurants around.

    All in all, a wonderful experience. Something I would definitely recommend if you were traveling to Barcelona with a party of 4 or more.

  • Nous avons séjourné à 4 personnes , début Mars, 2 Week Ends de suite chez Katia & Ale. Nous avons testé les nouveaux TGV directs Paris Barcelone ( avec escapade Madrid entre les 2) , l 'appartement est à environ 35 ' porte à porte de la gare de Sants par Metro ligne verte directe.( M° Liceu ) .Le logement est grand , en position centrale de la ville, et nous avons apprécié la disponibilité de Ale qui a été trés gentil pour nous aider dans nos demandes diverses relatives aux draps, aux horaires de départ, et aux fonctionnements divers dans l’appartement. Communication facile avec Ale sur whatsApp , il parle plusieurs langues , donc génial. Nous recommandons l 'appartement , sauf pour les personnes qui ont du mal à monter les marches , mais l'annonce est très claire à ce sujet donc pas de surprise. Nous aurons plaisir à revenir !!! Merci pour tout. Yves.

  • 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! :)

  • 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!
