A great host and a perfect apartment. Horacio was easy to communicate with, gave us lots o detail on the area, bars, restaurants and transportation, all of which made the weekend even more enjoyable. I'd have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who was staying in Barcelona.
Nous avons passé, avec mes amis, un très agréable séjour dans ce très joli appartement de style, très spacieux et très pratique avec ses 2 SDB. Les lits ont été préparés à notre convenance et les draps étaient propres tout comme l'ensemble. L’appartement est bien situé, à 5 min à pieds de la place catalunya dans une rue calme et peu animée. Horacio est quelqu’un de tres agréable, très professionnel et très disponible. Il a dû s’accommoder de notre arrivée tardive mais ce n'etait pas sans déboursser 50€ pour une arrivée imprévue à 00h.
Je recommanderai cet appartement à des amis qui voyagent en groupe ou à une famille avec des enfants.
Loved the location and Horacio was awesome! He provided us with so much great info/ideas for our stay in Barcelona.
A group of 7 of us stayed in this apartment in May this year and everything about the apartment was brilliant. The pictures are true to real life - the rooms are spacious, with high ceilings and lovely furnishings. The bedroom were all large - we had 3 single beds in one room and 2 beds in the second and third bedrooms. The two bathrooms were also lovely - powerful showers in both and towels available.
The location of the apartment is brilliant - short walking distance to las ramblas (5-10 mins) and only a couple of minutes walk to the nearest underground station.
Horacio was really accommodating when we made changes and was really quick to reply to all of my queries. We were able to stay longer in the apartment on the day we were leaving with no problems at all. He was also great at talking through some great places nearby to eat and drink when we looked a little lost on arrival!
Overall a great stay and I'd definitely stay at the apartment again when back in Barcelona.
We have a group of 8 people from Hong Kong and had a wonderful time in the apartment. Horatio, the host, is extremely nice and responsive to emails/text/Whatsapp. Before our trip, we had to change the bed arrangements and the number of guests multiple times, and Horatio was extremely helpful in making that happen. He gave us an introduction to Barcelona regarding where and how to sightsee and what restaurants are good. Overall a great Airbnb experience!
We had a wonderful month long stay in Barcelona. The flat was perfect in a beautiful neighborhood. Exactly as advertised. Large bedrooms, very comfortable living room and dining space, and great bathrooms. Kitchen had everything needed including a Nespresso machine and dishwasher. Grocery store, pharmacy, and several great cafes right across the street. Close and within walking distance to all of the major Gaudi works, Picasso Museum, Cathedral, parks and zoo, shopping and the beach. I highly recommend this flat and Horacio for your future visit to Barcelona.
We rented the apartment for 3 persons during a business trip for almost a full week in Feb 2014.
The apartment itself was great: big spacious rooms, lovely architecture and a lot of space, even for 3 adults travelling together. The location is superb, within a few mins walk to Place Catalunya and everything else one typically spends time at in Barcelona.
Horacio himself was a great host. Check-in and out were nothing but smooth and Horacio was available to us and quick to respond to all our questions. Beyond that, when we had a minor issue with the bathroom on day 2 he sorted it out within a few hours. Also after we had left and we needed to change something on the bill, Horacio worked closely with AirBnB customer support to sort everything out! (Im pretty sure a lot of landlords what not have been bothered too much since we had already paid & were gone).
I can definitely recommend the stay with Horacio and especially in this gorgeous apartment. Much much preferred over a hotel or similar.
Apartment as described, lovely and roomy even for seven women. Fantastic location, everything easy to access.
Went to Salamanca restaurant on the beach front, recommended to us by Horacio, food was gorgeous and the service was best we have had in a long time, they went the extra mile for birthday girl.
Would definitely use this apartment again.
Easy check in check out, everything went really easy.
Many thanks Horacio
Horacio is a great very friendly host! The place is like what you see in the pictures. It's a nice place, location is superb! Walking distance take you to catalunya, passeig de Gracia, la ramblas, and el born. There's a supermarket just across the street. Metro is 2-3 mins walk.
Très bon séjour! L'appartement est aussi beau que sur les photos, et bien placé. A deux pas du coeur de Barcelone. Nous avons été heureux de rencontrer Horacio, qui saura répondre à tous les petits problèmes.
