wenn wir sagen würden es war gut - dann ist das untertrieben!!
Alles hat gestimmt: Keine Fake-Fotos; Gastgeber der Extra-Klasse. Er hatte uns von der Metro abgeholt. Die Wohnung gezeigt und uns wertvolle Tipps für Essen & Trinken gegeben. Wir haben das auch gemacht und es war alles wunderbar........wir würden jederzeit wieder zu Simon fahren. Die Wohnung oder besser gesagt die Loft liegt mitten im Leben ...bunt und ohne sich zu verstecken, ein anderes Barcelona als die meisten es vielleicht kennen.
Wir lieben es sehr und auch Simon!
Simone & Stefan
We had a great time at Simon's loft. Simon made it very easy to plan. He gave us a lot of suggestions which helped a lot. He was very sweet and an amazing host.
The loft is close to the Ramblas, but also privat, located in quiet surroundings. We fell in love with it- spacious, beautiful decor and clean. All in all a great experience and we can highly recommended staying here.
Simon is such a great host - welcoming, friendly, responsive and it is so evident that he enjoys hosting. He recommended plenty of things to see and do during my stay as well as restaurants to visit and was always available if I had questions. The loft is exactly as it is in the photos - extremely clean and modern. The loft is in a quiet residential area a short walk from the busy centre of Barcelona. I would definitely recommend Simon's apartment!
Our first experience of using Airbnb - very easy and straightforward from booking to check-out. Any queries before we arrived were answered immediately, with information about provision of towels, hairdryer etc which are thoughtful and useful extras for a short break. Simon was waiting for us at the bus stop and was enthusiastic, welcoming, informative and genuinely friendly. Apartment is very clean and quiet in a great location. For the size of the space and quality of fittings and equipment it's incredibly good value. It would be an even better base in summer - it was slightly chilly in the flat in February but in hot weather would probably be a very cool oasis!
It was a present for my parents, their feedback is perfect.
We couldn't have asked for anything more. Simon was very welcoming,helpful and cheery. He met us straight off the bus and gave us a quick tour of the area around the apartment. He showed us around the apartment, gave us recommendations on what to do/what to avoid and talk us over a map of Barcelona.
Simon was a fantastic host and I would fully recommend his apartment!
Our stay in Simons loft was our first Airbnb experience.
The loft is as attractive as the photos are. The apartment in the middle of El Raval is spacious, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and everything is clean. Although the streets in El Raval are narrow and a bit dark at night our experience is that it is a safe place to stay.
Simon is a perfect host. After our booking, he provided us with some advice how to get to the city. He accompanied us from the aerobus stop to the apartment and gave some useful suggestions for places to eat and to drink. There are a lot of great spots in the neighborhood.
Simon and his apartment have defenitely contributed to our three great days in Barcelona.
They say, "An Englishman's home is his castle…"
Born in Yorkshire, I moved to Catalonia over eleven years ago and have made Barcelona my home. Our city centre apartment may not be El Castell (as they say in Catalan) but it's our pride and joy, built with love and the generous help of friends and family. Transformed from an empty shell in a modern Barcelona residence it is now a secure, fully equipped and fashionable, city centre sanctuary.
We would like to think it´s a reflection of us, perfectly nestled in the centre of the city with access to everything Barcelona has to offer, exhibitions, theatre, concerts, restaurants/bars, beaches and the splendour of the Barcelona, however once home and sat with a glass of wine in the garden completely separated from the hustle of the city you can sit back and feel relaxed .
We simply hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
