  • The apartment was great and terrace was huge! Check in went smooth and we could leave our luggage at the apartment when we left a little bit longer.

  • Stayed in Kristian's apartment for 3 nights in June. Had a great time, location is great, just a couple of minutes walk to la rambla. Surprisingly very quiet given the location near a few bars. The terrace outside was amazing! Perfect views, we spent a lot of time out there!
    Apartment was exactly as pictured, and very clean. Everything that you'd want was there.
    Spent a lot of time trying to find the place but was well worth the wait. In all, had a great stay and had a wonderful time. Would recommend!

  • We loved Kristian's flat and adored the TWO balconies. There were so many spots to sit and enjoy the sounds of Barcelona, we really felt torn between all the gorgeous views. Barcelona was so full of life and it felt like Kristian's apartment was right in the middle of all the action. It felt a little dangerous walking around the neighborhoods at night, but we still loved our experience. I would really recommend staying here if you are in Barcelona and want a place to relax in after a long day of walking all over the streets of Barco!

  • Staying at Kristian's flat was a good experience. The flat had everything we needed for a short weekend stay and it was very central so we managed to get most of our time in Barcelona.
    The check-in experience could have been better though. Kristian was ever so kind to allow us late check-in after 10pm. I was 1st and on my own: the street is not easy to find as it is split in three different streets names so unless you know this you will never find it. The taxi was not able to get me closer to the flat either as there only pedestrian street around the that street so it took me at least 20 minutes to locate the street, even if the flat left me at just 3 minutes from it. Once on the street the house didn't have a number so again I had to ask to the local shop for the number (forget finding this easily by asking if you don't speak the language). Once I've got several people confirming on the house number, Kristian asked me to ring the bell maned ATICO, but again there was no 'atico' sing on the house, neither in any other house on the street. I tried to email and text Kristian but didn't mange to get hold on him and when phoning no one was answering. The whole experience created me a lot of anxiety and it was only later at night when my friends arrived that we saw Kristian's friend getting into the house with the key.
    As the area is not the most inviting when you arrive new to the city and late at night I will recommend check-in much earlier that we did. Having said this we didn't encounter any problem during our stay. The flat was very clean and not noisy considering is on the centre.
    We brought coffee with us so we could have breakfast in the terrace, however Kristian had a capsule coffee machine so we couldn't use it and there were not capsules provided, that was a shame but we found plenty places to have breakfast in the area.
    Overall, good experience and very a flexible host; the check-in and directions given to the flat could have been better though.
    Thanks Kristian!

  • This is a great flat, very spacious and well located, right in the middle of the gothic quarter. It was very clean and light, and the roof terrace was amazing. Kristian was very helpful and arranged for his friend to meet us near the flat and take us there.

  • Although we never met Kristian, he was very quick in responding to inquiries. He arranged for us to be picked up from the airport. The driver met us and was very friendly and accommodating. He dropped us off with another gentleman who took us to the apartment. He showed us how to use everything. Apartment was nice with a lot of room for the two of us. Enjoyed having the huge sitting area outside especially at night. Air conditioner did not work first night, most likely user error and Kristian responded to my email and sent some over to help us. Overall, we had a great stay. Apartment was centrally located to shopping and restaurants and not far from the main bus area in the city. Was also very clean. Would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to be in the action. Thanks Kristian for providing a seemless transport from the airport

  • We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It is incredibly central, only a few minutes away from Placa Reial and La Rambla. There are lots of restaurants and bars nearby, but the flat isn't noisy.
    The flat is very modern and in good condition. We particularly enjoyed the terrace. If there are four of you or you plan on cooking a lot, then you may find the kitchen facilities/equipment lacking, but it was absolutely fine for us.

    There was a problem with ants, which we messaged Kristian about on the morning of our penultimate day but he didn't reply. There were a few other issues with communication, for example despite messaging Kristian twice on arrival as instructed, no-one came to let us in to the flat and we were waiting a long time.

  • Kristians place in BCN was great; great location in the middle of tge city and the apartment was nice and clean.

    The sofa bed ind the living room, was broken, though, and was very uncomfortable to sleep on. And the kitchen is badly equipped.
    Otherwise the place is fantastic :)

  • The House is in the heart of Barcelona behind Plaza Reial (where there are many restaurants and locals to drink and spend your nigth)....perfect position to visit Barcelona by walk! It is very clean and you can find all you need.
    Kristian is helpful even if I didn't see him (I only spoke with him by phone), but the guy who welcomed us was very friendly and helpful. thank you!
