We have a lot experience to host people from around the world. We are friendly and, of course, very honest.
Roger's apartment is in perfect walking location to everything and very easy to find. Sharing the apartment with Roger's mother and father is a nice experience and I was fortunate enough to hear his brothers beautiful piano playing most days! Thanks for having me
The room was OK but it was not very easy to get into the apartment, since Roger did not inform the number of the apartment, only the house number on the street. There are no names in the buzzer downstairs so impossible to know which one to ring. This was despite me contacting him in advance to ask how to find the place (no answer to SMS, but later answered my email). Luckily I was able to find his number and make an international call to his mobile, and luckily he happened to answer the phone. I hope othes will be as lucky as I was!
Superbe accueil de la maman, du papa de Roger et de Albione son frère. Appartement ayant un vrai caractère, la chambre était très bien et très au calme. L'appartement est très bien situé, proche de tout. Un merci particulier à Albione qui m'a accompagnée et m'a fait découvrir des endroits intéressants dans Barcelone que je n'aurai pas vus sans sa compagnie.
L’appartement est très bien situé dans un quartier connu pour ses petites rues étroites et anciennes, ce qui crée une ambiance intime. L’hôte et sa famille, d’une grande gentillesse, étaient toujours prêts à faire de leur mieux pour m’accommoder.
You cant ask for a better location: its right in the heart of Barcelona. Roger's mother, who hosted me, is an amazing woman and did everything in her power to make me feel welcome and at home. Truly a great host and a sweetheart!
The room I had was very basic: a bed, a desk/chair, a set of shelves and wifi. That's usually all I need when I travel, so it was more than enough. The room was facing an inner patio, which kept street noise to minimum, although you can still hear church bells far in the distance, which can be quite soothing. Bed was comfortable and linen was clean.
Bathroom is shared among all guests. Shower head kept falling down which was a minor annoyance. I am sure Roger will fix it for his future guests.
Two things I'd like to mention is that its quite an old apartment and I got the sense of it only once I got there. And despite paying a very affordable rate, it would have been nice if the floors and the room curtain had been a bit cleaner.
