Many thanks for the great loft, we have felt fine really. The loft has lain Very central, and everything foot-in heat accessible. Perfectly
What a great experience! The loft was beautiful, in a very central location. We would definitely stay there again. And Simon was the absolute best! He gave us tips and recommendations for our short stay to maximize our time in Barcelona. Highly recommend this apartment!
Simon and his place were awesome! He was so hospitable - meeting us at the bus stop, walking us to his place and pointing out landmarks along the way. Upon arrival, he provided us with a map of the city, and business cards of his favourite local eateries and shops. We ended up eating at about 5 of his suggested places and they were ALL INCREDIBLE!
The place was clean and well-kept - no surprises from what was shown in the photos. It is very conveniently located - just steps from some of the city's best restaurants and just a few minutes away from the city's main drag.
Simon really has thought of everything a guest in his home might need throughout their stay and made himself available if any issues arose (which they didn't!).
Thank you, Simon!
Simon is a really good host, we have been welcomed in a wonderful manner. Simon caught us at the bus stop, and gave us as much advices as possible, restaurants, places to visit (Palau Guell was really nice and interesting!), beaches to go to. Thanks Simon! The loft is also really nice with its patio, fully equipped, and very well decorated. El Raval is such a local way of life "barrio", that makes you feel like a barceloner !
Simon was amazing! Superb communication when we booked and throughout our stay... He greeted us and walked us back to the apartment pointing out restaurants and useful places as we walked by... He was extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable helping us with the places we wanted to visit during our stay and advising the best times to visit. He provided us with safety tips and was at the end of the phone if we needed him for anything... After talking through Barcelona and what we wanted to do he left us to enjoy the beautiful apartment which was extremely spacious and clean and in a great location where it is easy enough to hop on a tube or a short walk to the ramblas but at the same time the apartment was so peaceful and quiet. Other residents in the complex where the apartment is situated were also very friendly and welcoming. we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and we would definitely love to come back and stay again... Thank you so much Simon
This is a fantastic place to stay. Simon went above and beyond to show us around the local area and recommend some top places for us to visit and eat. We ate just next door one night (sorry - I have forgotten the name) and it was delicious!
Wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights - we will definitely be back.
Simon was a great, welcoming host. He took care of us during our stay giving good hints. This apartment is a great one with an excellent location in the center of Barcelona. This was our first time to use Airbnb and thanks to Simon, this was absolutely not the last time.
About the Host, Simon
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.
