Other Things to Note
About the reviews saying that the pressure water is low I want to put it clear something: THE PRESSURE WATER IS PERFECTLY FINE TO GET A SHOWER. It's not very strong, so don't expect a lot of pressure to get relaxed under the water like a jacuzzi... But I repeat, It's perfectly fine to get showered!
NO SMOKING. NO PARTIES. NO NOISE. VISITORS ARE NOT ALLOWED. PLEASE RESPECT THE QUITENESS OF OUR PLACE. THANKS.
We had an amazing week soaking up the culture of Barcelona. Carles was extremely accommodating even though we were delayed arriving from the airport. The apartment was just as described and the location amazing with tons of restos and shopping as soon as you step out on to the streets. I would recommend his place to everyone. Carles, thanks so much for the hospitality.
Beautiful apt. in a great location. Carles was very helpful with everything.
Carles and the loft were great! Super location for first trip to Barcelona. In the middle of a lot....but small passage way made it peaceful. Carles was very responsive and a good guy. Feel lucky to have been able to stay in Carles' loft!
The stay was great. Carles was out of town but David met us on time and had some great restaurant suggestions for us. The apartment is super well located and very comfortable. All the critics of the shower are wrong; there is plenty of pressure.
We had a problem with the washing machine but Carles was super accommodating and took care of it right away.
Overall a wonderful stay. Thanks!
We stayed at Carles`s place for about 10 days. He is a great host, was welcoming us personally and explaining all the practicalities about the flat and giving us short excursion around the neighborhood. As well later on he sent us very useful recommendation on places nearby.
Flat is spacious studio-style, everything what would you need is there, wifi was working perfect for our needs, with aircon turned to the heating indoor temperature was very fine. Flat is not soundproof, but area around and neighbors are quiet.
But real advantage of this flat is the location: you are in the Gothic quarters, close to El Born and Passeig de Gracia , 15mins away from La Ramblas, 4mins to nearest metro station. With plenty of options to eat and drink - everytime in a different place, also St. Catarina market is just 10mins away.
So if you want to live in Barcelona like local book with Carles!
Very good apartment in very good position!!! The apartment is confortable, clean and well equipped.
We stayed very well for a week and Carles was always available....
We were welcomed by David at the time we arranged to meet at the apartment. Fantastic location - could walk to almost everything we wanted - and David provided a nice introduction. The spacious room included firm bed, kitchen and dining area, desk and sofas with a bathroom off the entryway. It was attractive and comfortable and we enjoyed being there. Twice we needed to be in touch with Carles and David so we emailed, they responded immediately and addressed our concerns - one was even on Christmas eve and Carles came by to get our internet connected.
