I made a vey late réservation at Xavier's place. Booked on tuesday for an arrival on thursday night. Xavier confirmed my réservation very quickly. On our arrival I think that Xavier had an appointment on thursday night and we haven't talked a long each others. That's right that I talked spanish and do know Barcelona, in this case I didnt feel lost. The appartement is very well located in Barcelona, every is close to Xavier'place but I was disapointed as It wasn't very cleaned. ( but it might due tothe fact I made a very late reservation). The TV is missing , the kitchen a bit old but the lounge is great, the double room is very nice and qjiet , the single room is small. If you are looking a appartment very well located the appartment is good.
Xavier was really great in terms of letting us check in early. The train took longer than expected and when we called to let him know we were there, he arrived shortly after. The apartment is a 5 floor walk up, no lifts. Bathroom is small, but has great water pressure. There is a HUGE refrigerator in the kitchen, which is nice if you want to do a big grocery shopping trip. We didn't use the kitchen cause we were only in town a few days. One bedroom was nice and the other bedroom was awful. It wasn't a real bed, smelled of mold & you could see that there is water damage in that room. The sheets were terrible and used looking in both rooms. I slept on the couch instead of the 2nd room. The towels were equally terrible. Bring your own. There also is no TV. The location is amazing. Within walking distance of so much you would want to see.
Xavier treated me very well. He had excellent communication and even allowed me to store my luggage at his appartment for my evening flight. The house was clean and cozy. I would Recommend Xavier and his Listing to travelers looking to explore Barcelona!
Experiencia perfecta. Apartamento perfecto para pasar unos dias en esta dias con los amigos o en pareja. Muy cerca de todos los sitios de interes de la ciudad (no hemos tenido que coger ni una sola vez el metro). Muy cercano tambien de diversas zonas de fiesta nocturna de la ciudad. En cuanto a la casa, consta de dos habitaciones, cuarto de baño, cocina (con todo lo necesario para poder hacerte tu propia comida) y un salon bastante grande. En resumen una experiencia bastante satisfactoria y si volviese a la ciudad repetiria seguramemte.
Appartement calme, bien situé et conforme à la description.
Excellent accueil de la part de Xavier et notamment flexibilité très appréciée pour l'heure d'arrivée.
El anfitrión no nos enseñó ni la casa, se limitó a contarnos las estancias sin mostrarlas. A la salida tampoco supimos nada de él.
Nuestra elección era en gran parte por su "horario flexible", pero fue flexible solo para él, puesto que nos impuso la salida a las 10 de la mañana, comunicándolo la noche anterior.
No es como se refleja en las fotos:
- Aunque pone dos habitaciones, una es una cama de gomaespuma en la que no se puede dormir entre incomodidad y olor.
- Pone que hay posibilidad de usar el sofá, pero no es sofá-cama (Aunque es más cómodo que la cama)
- Cuarto sin ascensor (Sin aviso)
- Mal olor
- Puertas que no cierran
- No hay persianas ni cortinas
- Ducha en mal estado
- No hay TV
- No hay telefonillo
Una de nuestras peores estancias en Barcelona, nos sentimos engañadas. La pésima calidad no se corresponde con el precio.
When we arrived, the host didn´t show us the apartment neither explained anything.
We mainly chose it because of his flexible schedule, but it was flexible only for him; he made us leave the apartment at 10am without telling us until the night before.
The apartment is not as in the pictures:
-It says 2 rooms, but one of them is only a thin bed with an incredibly uncomfortable mattress.
-It smells badly and the bed sheets are not as clean as the should be.
-He says we can use the coach but it is only a coach not a bed.
-It is a fourth floor without a lift and he doesn’t say it in the description.
-Humidity in the walls
-Doors that are impossible to close
-There is a TV in the pictures that doesn’t exist
-The is no entry phone
-The shower doesn´t work correctly
It has been our worst stay in Barcelona and we feel fooled. The price is not worth the quality of the place.
Very helpful and got in contact with us promptly. Met us at the local metro station and walked us to the flat. The flat was clean and spacious and exactly how it looked in the description. Wifi worked perfectly. Was in a great location in Central Barcelona. Apart from the steep 3 flights of stairs it was the ideal crash pad for a night in Barcelona! Would definitely recommend.
About the Host, Xavier
Me interesa el arte y la gastronomía entre otras muchas cosas. Barcelona me ofrece la posibilidad de disfrutar de ambas cosas. De vez en cuando me gusta viajar, y sobretodo a paises donde la fauna y el paisaje me llamen la atención. Me encantan los animales, pero en su hábitat.
Suelo disfrutar con mi gente conociendo restaurantes o bares nuevos. Mi tiempo libre lo dedico a disfrutar de mis amigos y de mi familia.
