CHECK-IN & OUT
I am flexible to coincide with your check-in and check-out times.
(Please refer to the house rules for arrival directions and check-in/out info).
The appartment is very nice, extremely clean. THe terrace is great; Philippe is keen to share his knowledge of the city.
To be completely honest, one, walls are very thin in the building. From the room you hear everything that happens in the appartment, as well as the elevator which is quite noisy.
Would recommend, thanks Philippe
Philippe was a great host and displayed a level of generosity that I didn't expect during my stay. I had a wonderful time at the apartment - it was easy to get to, and Philippe's directions were quite useful.
The apartment is well set up, and the furniture and decorations are reflective of Philippe's past. It is quite modern and has all the facilities and amenities you could ask for in a penthouse-style apartment.
I ended up staying for 8 days over the New Year's period, and had an absolutely fantastic time. Philippe even extended me an invitation to join him and his friends for dinner and drinks on NYE! During the course of my stay, we had several interesting discussions about how Sydney has now changed (he used to live in Sydney). Some of our other chats event took on a more philosophical twist!
I would definitely recommend others to stay with Philippe and I only hope that, in the future, I can reciprocate to Philippe.
While our stay was short we were made to feel very welcome and on more than one occasion Philippe refereed to it as our home.
Awesome apartment with a beautiful sun deck, not that we had time to use it.
The accommodation is spotlessly clean and ultra modern, it's luxurious. Phillips is a charming host and extended an invitation to us to join a few of his friends for a meal.
I would recommend Philippe to all my friend and I hope to have the opportunity to return one day?
Very convenient for public transport to the airport and city centre which is a comfortable walk with many shopping distractions along the way.
Philippe's penthouse-style apartment is really awesome, especially the huge rooftop terrace. Everything is very modern, stylish and clean. The metro station is right next to his place, which makes it easy to get everywhere in Barcelona. I had a great time at his place and can recommend it to everyone.
Philippe is quite the commensurate host. Friendly, efficient, warm and welcoming and always with a smile.
Philippe made us feel really at home in his lovely apartment which he's put so much into. It was a real pleasure staying here. The decking is just great to enjoy a little sunbathing in privacy. Great facilities and a comfortable bed. Bathroom and kitchen are amazing but then so is everything.
Philippe was very helpful providing information as to where to go to catch our bus back to the airport which is not that far from his place. By the way at time of writing the Aerobus is around 6 Euros each person each way whereas the 46 bus is only 2 Euros!
We could see the September festival beach fireworks from Philppe's apartment from the roof terrace .. nice advantage.
The area is blessed with several vegetable shops, supermarket, bars and restaurants. There's also a multi-storey car park next door - useful for anyone travelling car.
We were walking everywhere and didn't even bother to take the metro as there's so much to see above ground.
The cable to the castle is worthwhile. We walked back down and came across a great bar called Miramar with wonderful views over the port and city. Well worth the walk down fro the castle!
Thanks Philippe for the excellent G&Ts, the offer of food and your great company!
Certainly to be recommended.
Philip is à very Kind and respectfull host. He is chill and interesting. The place is amazing and the zone perfect! Tank you very much philip !
If you want a quiet, beautiful place to stay in Barcelona, choose Philippe's appartment. We arrived 19th of August and this was our first experience with AirBnb. We left the appartment at Sunday 25th of August and it was fantastic! Philippe is amazing; he will provide you with detailed information about what to do in and around barcalona, is very open-minded, and loves good food and drinks. The room is comfortable and well appointed, the quality of cleaning was good. The terraces are equiped with nice furniture and provide an amazing view over Montjuiic. If you like spanish Tapas, we would like to recommend 'La lolita', just around the corner of Philippe's flat. The food is excellent and well priced. The beach is a 25min metro drive. The airport shuttle to (plaza de Espagna)Calle de Tamarit works well and goes almost every 10mins. We consider Philippe's appartment as a super place to enjoy barcelona. It really was a perfect stay! Best luck with your business Philippe, hope to see you around in Maastricht one day! Regards Sander & Eline
Every photo is as good as it is in real! keep that in mind:)
Hi Sander and Eline, thank you so much for taking the time to write this very nice review very very well written. It was great to have you both home and I very much enjoyed your company and especially the great diner at lolita. Could you please thank your parent for the great diner we had for your birthday. All the best and maybe seen you in Maastrich. Take care. Philippe
It is a stunning place with a beautiful view from the balcony! Just like in the photo and even better! I am in complete awe of this apartment and from Philip! Is very convenient - 1 minute from the metro, 15 minutes to the center and 25 to the beach! Philip was a very caring and friendly, and helped us in any (email hidden) was fun to spend time in the company of such a lovely person. For ten days, he became the father of our family! Recommened to all this wonderful place! Уou will not regret it!
I had the pleasure to rent the Queensize bedroom at Philippes place with a friend. First of all the apartment is such a nice place, theres really everything you need to have a comfortable stay or to live like Queens and Kings:) The terrace is just amazing. The area around are really nice to, one of the best areas in Barcelona. Just around the corner, there a lots of good restaurants and bars. A little away from the beach (approx 30 min with metro), but in walking distance to all the places you want to see. Philippe is the best host, sweet and very easygoing. You feel very comfortable in his company. He will help you with everything you need, like wheres the nearest supermarktd, where to go out, what to see and stuff like that. I can definitely recommend you to stay at Philippes place.
Un formidable séjour à Barcelone grâce à Philippe et à son accueil chaleureux.
On se sent vraiment chez soi dans ce très bel appartement, propre et aménagé avec gout.
Philippe est un hôte fabuleux; disponible, sympa et soucieux du bon déroulement de votre séjour.
A noter, les superbes terrasses avec vue sur le tibidabo d'une part et sur le téléphérique du montjuic d'autre part, où il est très agréable de boire l'apéritif!
Par ailleurs, l'appartement est très bien situé. A proximité du métro et à 10mn à pied de la place de Espagna où il est très agréable de se promener le soir.
En conclusion, vous pouvez vous rendre chez Philippe les yeux fermés, ce sera quoi qu'il arrive, exceptionnel!!
