THIS IS NOT A SERVICED APARTMENT.
Firstly, Simon is a fantastic host, he met us at the bus stop and walked us back, giving us an overview of the area and advised of different places and restaurants to visit and go to.
Secondly the apartment was exactly as described and the pictures do not do it justice It is extremely clean and well maintained with all the essentials you would expect and the terrace is great for sitting out late at night. The location is very central, with just a short walk to the main shops, port and beach front.
We would highly recommend Simon and his apartment to anyone and will most certainly be visiting again.
Once again, thank you Simon from Clare and Chris
Appartement très vaste, très bien situé, à cinq minutes de la Rambla, et calme.
L'acceuil de Simon est très agréable. Il nous a indiqué plusieurs adresse de restos très sympa. Et quelques conseils de visites, très pratiques. En clair, il nous a amélioré notre découverte de cette super ville, Barcelone. A conseiller.
Zdanie jakie Simon wypowiedział witając mnie w mieszkaniu doskonale oddaje to jakim jest gospodarzem: to twój dom przez kolejny tydzień więc czuj się jak w domu.
Wspaniały loft, wspaniały ogródek, idealny do spędzania tam wspólnych wieczorów.
Mogę pisać tylko o pozytywach :) Spędziliśmy tam cudowny tydzień. Zdecydowanie polecam to miejsce!
Dziękujemy za wszystko!
This was my 2nd stay at Simon’s apartment because amongst the Airbnb hosts, I would like to say Simon himself and his apartment is the BEST of the Bests. The apartment is conveniently located in the center of Barcelona, very good tapas bars and restaurants are in walking distance. The rooms are clean, towels are fluffy, patio is charming, I can’t point out anything negative. Simon, the host, himself is so sweet and kind. Though we said we can manage ourselves and reach the apartment, he wished to welcome us at the bus stop and tried giving his hand to carry our bags. I never have seen such host who behaves way beyond our expectations. Thank you Simon, you are the best!!
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our short trip to Barcelona! It was my first time using airbnb and Simon made me feel super comfortable leading up to my trip. Simon greeted us with open arms once we arrived to the apartment and he gave us a lot of information about the city and things to do. The apartment is in a good location and is basically walking distance to everything. The apartment was exceptionally clean and in great condition. I highly recommend staying here! Simon was a really awesome host!
Simon war ein überaus bemühter und hilfreicher (website hidden) hat uns persönlich von der Bushaltestelle abgeholt und war auf dem Weg zum Apartment ein perfekter Stadtführer !
Das Apartment liegt ideal um Barcelona zu Fuß zu erkunden! Es ist sauber und toll eingerichtet und man ist mit allem versorgt was man für einen gelungenen Urlaub braucht.
Das Highlight ist der kleine private Garten
mit Sonne am späten Vormittag ( im März )!
Der Fernseher hat nur spanische Sender aber das WIFI funktioniert gut.
Simons Lokaltips sind goldwert!
Wir werden sicher wieder Simons Apartment buchen und ihn auch unseren Freunden empfehlen!
Simon was incredible. He met us at the bus stop for the airport bus and walked us back to the apartment, describing the neighbourhood as we went. It was a great way to get our bearings. The apartment was clean, spacious and contained everything we needed to feel comfortable on our stay. Location excellent.
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.
