  • Very good location!!!! Walking distance to everywhere. Richard and Jeff are amazing hosts ! They were very helpful ! I will definitely stay again in this apartment!! Thank you !

  • This apartment is in a great location, close to the metro and walking distance to many sights .Jeff and Richard are pleasant and friendly and welcomed us with a bottle of cava.
    On the downside, this apartment and the service provided was not of the same standard as the previous 8 apartments within the same price range, that we have used in Europe during our 3 months of travel.
    - Richard and Jeff forgot that we were arriving: we had to wait 2 hours ( until 11 pm that night ) to check in as the apartment had not been cleaned and prepared
    - the description and photographs of the apartment are quite misleading : the apartment was dark, dingy and much smaller than it appears in the photographs.
    - the sofa bed is a chaise lounge and not a pull out sofa bed
    - the apartment was not properly cleaned and sanitised: the carpet was in need of a shampoo and the bedroom floor was in a very poor condition
    - the shower stall had part shower door and part curtain, the main shower head did not work and the hand held shower fitting was broken
    - the water in the shower did not drain quickly and the tap fittings were stained and corroded
    - the only window/door in the apartment is not properly sealed and the shutters do not close properly, as a result it is very noisy ( until at least 3 am in the morning )
    - the smart tv did not work at all during our 6 day stay and the wi- fi did not work for 2 days
    - the response rate (email) during our stay was very poor, however the hosts let themselves in and out of the apartment without consultation (apparently to fix the TV)
    This was a disappointing experience and we would not use this apartment again

    Response from Richard & Jeff:

    Hi Prags, we are very sorry for your comments, if you see our previous reviews, there has no even been one guest who has a closed opinion of what you taught of the apartment. It seems to me that your opinions are influence by the fact that when we came in to fix the TV WITH YOUR PERMISION ("Sure Richard , if that's convenient for you. We are going out soon but let yourself in
    Regards
    Prags" )
    and after seen no following several of our house rules we kindly ask you to remember then " AC on, Lights ON etc ".
    We believe that if you have found so many issues other than the one you told us which were the TV, you should have told us because we could have tried to solve them, because we want our guest to have the best experience as possible.
    on the contrary of what every other guest thinks it is a very bright apartment with all the amenities that we offer and our photos were taken and verified by Airbnb directly, it seems unfair to us to exaggerate and even elaborate false comments because it will falsely damage our reputation and I would not recommend to anybody someone to do this kind of actions.

    Sincerely we are very sorry you stayed in our apartment.

  • I can honestly say that both Richard and Jeff were utterly wonderful hosts. Over the course of our trip they were both individually and collectively hospitable, kind and extremely generous. I only wish that Malin (my other half) and I hadn't such a busy schedule as we would have loved to have taken them for a drink.

    On arrival they kindly looked after my bag even though it was before check in and gratefully recommended lovely places for a lone traveler (waiting for Malin to arrive) to spend time, eat and be merry. During the course of our trip they were nothing but courteous and always greeted us with a smile.

    I would highly recommend this place to anyone wishing to be close to the heart of Barcelona and wanting a spacious apartment equipped with all the necessities one may need.

    The flat is ideally located, the noise is minimal, the area safe and clean and the atmosphere fitting a romantic weekend away.

    Two thumbs up from us.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Jeff's and Richard's place. It's a fact-you can walk everywhere! But also can reach every single place by metro and bus within instances! Really fantastic! The flat is rather small but clean and tidy. We agree to those visitors that remarked the place as noisy. But at the end of an exhausting day it was no longer a problem. The bed was wonderful to sleep in -not too soft, not too hard. Although we didn't have the opportunity to meet the guys personally the contact was warm and very obliging! They managed the check in and check out very easily We would definitely stay there again! Thanks so much!

  • Perfect area to stay in Barcelona! Richard greeted us when we got there and was so nice and gave us a tour of the place and great recommendations on restaurants too! The apartment was clean and very nice just like the pictures and perfect location to sight see and then take a rest in between. We would definitely stay here again and wish we could have stayed longer. :)

  • We arrived by ship in Barcelona very early on a Thursday morning. This made it difficult to be in contact with Richard and Jeff for some time prior to arrival but when I called, Richard was at the apartment and met us when we arrived a bit later. He made sure we had everything we needed to settle in for a week. Both Richard and Jeff speak excellent English which made communication easy and comfortable.

    The apartment is small but very clean and well organized. The queen-sized bed made us very comfortable. The neighborhood is busy and noisy but we liked it because it is central and cosmopolitan. We were able to walk almost everywhere or get there on the "Calle Parallel" metro that is only 50 meters from the front door.

    Richard and Jeff recommended three restaurants that all turned out to be great and off the tourist route. They also went out of their way to print our "on-line" tickets to Sagreda Familia so we did not have to waste hours standing in line. Barcelona is a wonderful city and Richard and Jeff certainly helped to make our stay a great success.

  • Richard and Jeff provided very clear, detailed instructions about reaching the apartment and, as promised, their friend was there to let us in when we arrived after our very long trip from Australia. They also provided helpful suggestions about tapas bars, shopping, etc. and we were greeted with a very welcome bottle of wine. The apartment is very well located - easy walking to La Ramblas and all the attractions around there and the metro is only a walk of a minute or two. Unfortunately the bedroom faces onto a noisy street and the windows are not double glazed so getting good sleep was a bit difficult.

  • This flat in Barcelona was in a great location- right next to Metro and nice cafe. Also walking distance to Las Ramblas and port area.

    Clean and efficient, our hosts fulfilled our expectations and then some.

  • My husband & I stayed in Richard & Jeff's place for a week & we loved it! It's quite large & has an ACTUAL queen sized bed (not two twins pushed together, which seems to be a common thing in Europe). The apartment was very well kept & had a stocked kitchen, so we could bring home groceries to save money on eating out. Richard & Jeff were very very accommodating in getting the apartment ready early so we could check-in right when we arrived (early) and then waited patiently when we were later than expected. Communication was great! Richard greeted us at the apartment with a delicious bottle of Cava & showed us around. He also provided a list of transportation tips & favorite local restaurants. They are not kidding about this location, either! You really CAN walk everywhere! The subway is a few steps away, if you need it (maybe to take the funicular up to Montjuic), but you really can walk most places from this spot in the heart of Barcelona! Incredible location. Also, Richard & Jeff are right next door, so any issues and you just need to knock on their door. Very convenient! We saw Jeff a few times during our stay as well, & he was quick to make sure we were doing well in the apartment. They have a great TV, also, with lots of English channels.

    The only downside at this apartment is that the street is a bit noisy. Not a problem if you are a heavy sleeper, like my husband, but worth noting for any light sleepers out there. :) Even so, I highly recommend this place!
