APARTMENT FOR 4 PEOPLE ONLY(For families travelling toghether we accept 2 more people ON REQUEST, there's a sofa-bed).
I stayd for one night in the apartment, and the host waa nice and the location is very good.
A) the apartment is in a fantastic location. You can pretty much walk to all the popular places in BCN by foot from here.
B) David met us to check us in instead of Carles and gave us great tips on the restaurants and the area, which was very helpful. Except one thing- he told us there's a tram at the Plaza Catalunya to take us directly to the Sants St. but this was not true. After wandering the area for a while looking for the tram with our luggage, sweating, we learned that we needed to take the Rodalies to avoid all the transfers. There is no tram at Plaza Catalunya, FYI, according to the information desk.
C) Carles was pretty much prompt in his responses via airbnb, which I appreciated especially when we had some troubles with the key at the apartment later at night. He responded almost immediately when I sent him the sos.
A) we had some issues with the cleanliness of the apartment. We found crums on the table/chairs on our arrival, worst- couple hairs on the bed linen. The linen itself was pretty much worn out, too.
B) this apartment is basically on the third floor in a walkup building (counting the ground floor as "1" not "0"), with a very narrow staircase. We had 4 big suitcases so it was pretty challenging to climb up, though David helped us with one of them at checking in. I might have changed my decision in choosing this place if I knew this before, as I was traveling with my mom who is in her 60s. Obviously she had a hard time with it.
C) they only have one small air conditioning in the master bedroom (it's actually more like a cooling fan system with the water tank you need to dump when it's full), and the other room on the other side of the apartment has a fan with no window. It got pretty hot and stuffy in this weather as you can imagine. So this apartment is actually more like half-air conditioned, I would say. And don't expect privacy since the bedroom doors need to be left open for air circulation due to this reason. Definitely something to consider if you are looking for an air conditioned apartment that feels actually cool and plan on using both rooms.
We enjoyed the excellent location, waklked everywhere. Lots of good restaurants close by, loved the atmosphere. Apartment had plenty of room for family of four. Would definitely recommend.
Excelente estadía en el departamento de Carles! Mejor ubicado no puede estar!!! Cerca de todo y a la vez muy tranquilo!
I had a great time in Barcelona and at Carles's apartment! The place was clean and quiet and in a great location. I would definitely make a trip back, thanks again!
Le logement est tout à fait fidèle aux photos. Très bon accueil. L'appartement est idéalement situé dans une petite rue piétonne en plein centre de Barcelone.
Fiquei em Barcelona na casa do Carles por algumas noites. Ele nos recebeu pessoalmente e foi muito atencioso. O apartamento é espaçoso e super bem localizado. Perto de tudo! Recomendo muito e voltarei com certeza!
