Highly recommended! My husband and I had a great one week stay at Kiko's apartment. The apartment's location is good and safe. It is close to the subway, nice eating places, cool cafes and pubs. Plus Kiko is the perfect host!!! He is so easy-going and nice. I really loved the way he opened up his entire place to us. He also gave us a lot of good tips to explore Barcelona. We really enjoyed the conversations we had with him...from football, politics and everything else. The room is spacious and lovely. There's also a nice coffee machine in the room, good for coffee lovers like us. Good central heater - keeps us warm during winter. We will definitely stay with Kiko again if we were to head to Barcelona again. Thank you for everything Kiko! xx Your asian kids :P
very nice room and very nice host
Une chambre en ville!!
Location is pretty good. Few minutes walk to almost everywhere!! EL RAVAL is popular but authentic district . Just a step from the subway ... a lot to discover.
The room is great,large and you sleep well
And Kiko is a great host, his tips for going out were very helpful
in two words: I recommend!!!
Kiko's apartment is well located close to the centre of the Barcelona. It is easy to walk to public transport from one of the main streets 5-10min away. Kiko is prompt in responding and reliable on information and directions. He is professional and respectful in his approach to the leasing of a room within an apartment. The room as advertised is very spacious and comfortable. It has a really nice feel about it, has beautiful ambiance and is a nicely renovated old building. It is also a quite place to stay in when you close the doors ( also good shutters). Modern shower, toilet and generally separate from Kiko's space within the apartment(living areas are separate.)
Barcelona is a labyrinth at this point at the heart of the city and I would recommend getting a good map with street names, so that you can find your way home.
I highly recommend this place - one of the best I've stayed in.
I can only add another voice to the long list of reviews here: the room is spacious and amazing, stylishly furnished, in a remodeled historic building with Catalonian ceilings and architecture. It's inside the old downtown area and super close to anything you'll want to see in any direction. Except for a few metro rides, we walked almost everywhere and walked home at night.
Kiko is the quintessential host, such an honestly warm hearted guy. He always was forthcoming with a recommendation or just help with navigating somewhere we wanted to go the next day. Thanks Kiko for an awesome stay in Barcelona!
This place was the perfect weekend in Barcelona. Everything was super clean, nicely decorated, super spacious and its located in the middle of everything, I couldn't ask for anything better. But what makes even better is Kiko as the host, he made us feel so welcomed we felt at home right away, we felt like we were all old friends. Kiko was so helpful in everything, super friendly and has nicest personality. He recommended best tapas in town, how to get train, everything that you need Kiko will know how to do it like the locals, makes the experience in Barcelona even better. At the end we were sad to leave but I am sure we'll be back soon. Thank you Kiko for everything, was the perfect weekend.
We stayed at Kiko's apartment for almost a week. The location is perfect. It's only a five minute walk to La Rambla through some quite and nice streets. We felt safe walking home at night, that's a big plus. Also it's close to Sant Anthoni market and some great places to go for breakfast. Kiko knows the best places!
The apartment itself was very clean and spacious. It's amazing how Kiko managed to do so much with little space. The bathroom was great. Wonderful powerful shower. Towels were present, so no need to worry about that.
The bed squeaked a bit, we're light sleepers so after a couple of nights we just dropped the mattress on the floor and slept like babies. The air conditioning was amazing too (quiet and turbo mode) and we were pleasantly surprised with the speed of the internet. The whole apartment breathes culture and it's nice staying at a place that makes you feel like a local.
And of course there's Kiko, a host that should be rewarded with an award immediately. He was so kind and hospitable, full of tips and tricks, great stories and kind gestures. He made our stay to an unforgettable memory. It was my birthday during our stay and Kiko was so kind to provide a great bottle of wine. We opened it together and shared some tapas while talking until the early hours. He can make a great salad in only a minute and never hesitates to answer any question. He explained everything carefully when we arrived and had a lot of tips for the neighborhood. He really was and is the perfect host.
If you still have doubts, forget about them. This place and host is perfect. Five star experience for sure!

L'appartement était tout simplement formidable et très bien situé! Nous avons été en mesure de nous rendre partout à pieds. Le quartier est formidable, avec tous ses petites restaurants et bars. De plus, le marché qui se trouve au coin de la rue est extra! Finalement, Kiko est un hôte formidable!
Merci pour tout!
My friend and I stayed in Kiko's Room from late July to early August for four days.
Remodeling and adorning the house by yourself, Kiko, the house was really awesome, clean and I could feel petty pleasures regarding the interior. Containing a lot of musician albums, it amused me a lot listening to new musics. I deliver my appreciation to Kiko who cared for us even a cup of coffee.
I could have made me feel awkward living with a stranger in a guest room, but this experience gave me chance to live life with natives and communicate with them and I'm sure this would be a very valuable memory to us.
With the delivery of information about restaurants, must-go places, traffic information, what to be aware, made us well provided that we didn't need any guide book at all to enjoy and feel being in Barcelona. (Kiko, thanks to you, because of you, we could find the airport without hardships.)
Every sample pictures weren't exaggerated or beautified, and it wouldn't disappoint a person by the scene of it. I think this trip was successful and memorable for taking a wonderful lodging.
It was really lucky to meet you, thank you, Kiko !
I and mum spent 5 days in Barcelona at Kiko's apartment near Rambla (Liceu). Since it was the first time for my mum in Barcelona we enjoyed staying in this very centred part of the city despite of little bit noisy nights. The apartment is very large and clean nevertheless you should prepared that it has no conditioner and wifi yet.
Hello Anne. thank you very much for the nice repport and hope you and your mum enjoyed very much your stay in Barcelona. Well, the owners of the appartment look like dont wanna spend any money on getting wifi and air conditioner in the appartment. Which is really a pitty then since end of October the temperatures are very high in Barcelona and the appartment becomes too hot, especially since windows cannot be opened because of the noisy l neighborhood and steet. Therefore I m now offering other appartment in the areda with better set up for guests proper accommodation. I ll keep you informed for your or maybe any friends stay in Barcelona or the future. Take care !!!!
