Katia was incredibly accommodating in preparing our check in at midnight and being so kind as to preparing a nice bottle of wine for my Birthday. The place is in such a great location and the house is so cute and quirky. We had the best time staying here! From the rooms, plenty of towels, a fully functioning kitchen and great wifi, the charm of the apartment and location was beyond what I had expected. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to visit. Superb service, excellent host and amazing place to stay. Thanks Katia!!!!
Very central location (2 minutes from Las Ramblas/walking distance to the beach)
Good communication online (fast responses)
Lots of food/drink recommendations from Katia and Ale for the area
Can fit a larger group of guests (there were 11 of us in total)
Air con (nice to have a cool temperature apartment)
Lovely view from the balcony (however that meant a long walk up four flights of stairs)
I rang Katia after we'd all bought food only to be informed that the main part of oven wasn't working-it would have been nice to have known prior to buying food.
Although there was enough room for 11 people, communal areas were very cramped i.e living room which was our main communal area was also 4 people's bedrooms and we couldn't eat all at the same time
The general appearance was a bit shabbier than we were lead to believe from photos i.e the front door had a smashed window-but this wasn't an issue to us.
Felt a bit overpriced for what we actually got (however this could be due to the good location)
Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and would definitely recommend!
Super relax hosts and helpful. Flat was really nice and well located we had a great time many thanks!
We had a great stay in Barca at Katia's place. It is just a few blocks from La Rambla so convenient to all we wanted to see. We tried Iposa and Selenus restaurants in area both recommended. It is on 4th floor with no elevator so take care if you have trouble with stairs. Very clean and authentic decor!
We were eight women and have a total of three nights at Katia's apartment. The apartment is as described centrally. It is a beautiful old building, fully equipped but unfortunately without an elevator. The apartment is surrounded by many small shops selling food, fresh fruits and bakeries.
Katia is the perfect hostess, she was always very reliable, has responded immediately and did everything very well organized. The living room and one of the bedrooms have even air conditioning, which is very advantageous in the warm temperatures.
I would book the apartment anytime again but not with so many people because it has unfortunately only a small toilet and a large bathroom. That was the only sticking point for so many people.
Otherwise everything was really perfect for an unforgettable stay in Barcelona.
Many thanks again to you Katia, we had a very nice time!
Katia is a wonderful host! Warm and inviting! Beautiful place in a wonderful location. Much bigger than we had thought. And very well maintained!
When everything works perfect, there's not much to say!!
