Vincent is really nice person, who always makes sure that everything goes smoothly. The aparment is really nice and we liked the location. Metro stop is 2 min away if you do not feel like walking. If you want to enjoy local atmosphere instead of tourist places the gracia neighbourhood is worth visiting, only 10 min walk. Definitely recommending this place! Thank you Vincent
it was very clean and comfortable room among I have seen. host is very kind and the location is near the tourism attractions. If I have a chance that I visit Europe, exactly Spain, I would reserve his room again. Thank u for having an unforgettable memories in Barcelona.
We had a great time in Vincent's place in Barcelona!
Barcelona was reallly hot. but Vincent's place had an air conditioner that relieved us so much.
The place was also very convenient in its location which was near the city center.
The room was also beautiful and neat and it had two bathrooms and a kitchen that were accessible. it was great not to have to wait to shower after all the sweat.
to add an episode, on the first day somehow the electricity went off and Olaf(Vincent's friend) immediately came to fix things up and help us right away. Thank you again Olaf.
Thank you Vincent for providing a great place to stay over in Barcelona :)
Hope to see you again.
Perfect we erre very happy with our room and specially the location. Olaf greeted us and gave us great restaurant tips!!
I absolutely loved Vincent's home, so comfortable, so elegant and well located near the centre of Barcelona. I would always recommend his place also because Vincent is an exquisite person, very nice and polite. Absolutely recommended!
Very cool place to stay for couple of days. The AC worked fine in the room. The location is also nice. The subway is ver close and mostly you can walk around the town.
Vincent was a very attentive host, extremely polite and helpful. The area is really great, you are sharing the apartment with other travelers, however I do recommend this as a great place to stay!

About the Host, Vincent
I believe the most important thing you need to know about me is that I treat my guests the way I like to be treated: as friends, respecting privacy but always ready to help out!
I am a life-enjoying traveler and have visited over more than 43 countries (both budget and high-end). My favorite travel destinations are Cuba and Asia in general. I have been living in Barcelona for 13 years so I'm full of 'tips & tricks'.
I like art, dining, photography, martial arts, shopping and a good night out, all of which can be found close to our apartment.
I have been living in Spain (Madrid/Barcelona) for 14 years (ex-expat) and I really enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle you can find in Barcelona.
Life motto (as requested by airbnb):
Flow with the Go
