  • Studio très propre, ixchel et joan sont très sympa ! L'idée du petit guide perso est très bonne ! Parfait pour un séjour de fêtes et de visites ! Je recommande !

  • Me and my sister spent two nights in Ixchel's studio. The location was great! Good connection to get to the center of Barcelona and you could easaly walk to Parc Guell. There are lots of restaurants and bars around and not very touristic. Ixchel and her boyfriend are very friendly and helpful. When we found out that all of us were going to Cadaques at the same day they offered place for us in their car.

    Even thou the apartment is very clean and cozy, its good to know that its located in the basement with no daylight and that it smells of moldy.

  • My friend and I stayed in Ixchel's Gracia neighborhood apartment for five days in June 2014. Ixchel was a wonderful host! She greeted us upon arrival (she lives next door) and gave us a book filled with restaurant suggestions! When we did not know how to turn on the kitchen faucet, she promptly came to help us out! She also was extremely helpful in giving us directions to and from the airport, and we had no problems at all finding the apartment (and this is coming from 2 girls who get lost frequently...).

    The apartment itself is located in a great and safe neighborhood-- just 5 minutes from Lesseps metro stop, which is on a great metro line, and just 10 minutes walk to Park Guell. There are a lot of supermarkets, bakeries, cafes, and convenience stores right on the main street (Travessera de Dalt) in front of the apartment.

    Just so everyone knows, the apartment is located in the basement of the building, so there is a musty smell. That being said, it is extremely clean and has all the amenities one needs for a short stay in Barcelona (fridge, stove, cups, utensils, coffee machine, bathroom, shelves, comfortable bed). The bathroom does not have a separate shower, so those who like to take baths should be aware.

    My friend and I enjoyed our stay in Barcelona, and we thought Ixchel was a great host!

  • Ixchel was a great host. She was very helpful directing us from airport and around the district. Apartment is very well located close to subway station - almost next to Part Guell. It is very well equiped, but since it's in the basement it's rather place to sleep rather than spending more time. Good choice for a price!

  • Nous avons passé 5 jours à Barcelone dans l'appartement d'Ixchel. L'accueil par son ami Joan était très chaleureux. Bien que peu lumineux (car situé au sous-sol), l'appartement est très agréable et bien équipé (machine à café, bouilloire, etc) et le lit très confortable. Rien à dire ! surtout que le prix défit toute concurrence !
    L'appartement est situé à 10 min du parc Guell, 5 min du métro et en plein coeur du quartier Gracia. Ixchel met à disposition un carnet des bonnes adresses de son quartier. C'est comme cela que nous avons découvert un restaurant à tapas sensationnel avec une ambiance authentique espagnole...

  • Petit studio fonctionnel, idéalement placé, très pratique pour un court séjour!
    Un petit bémol: manque de lumière..

  • Nous avons passé un très bon séjour! Accueil rapide et sympathique, aucun problème avec le studio qui était très propre à notre arrivée. Supermarché et métro tout près donc bien situé. En gros rien a redire je le recommande à d'autres personnes :)

  • Ixchel was uncomplicated to communicate with and gave us helpful information regarding transport.
    It was great that we could check in really late!

    The location of the appartement was close to the metro and supermarkets.
    The appartement was clean and all the equipment we needed.

    Nevertheless it was not really what I expected from the photos.
    The appartment had stylish interior, but it was in an basement and therefore really really dark and moldy smelling. Not the best option for a romantic getaway with your boyfriend.

    There was no "regular" shower (the hose is integrated in the toilet) – but it was my fault that i overlooked this on the pictures.

    Of course, you can´t have everything for this reasonable price, but I guess there are a few better options in BCN if you want to spend a romantic weekend.

  • La atención fue estupenda y el piso tal y como aparece en las fotos.

  • My husband and me spent 3 nights in this little, comfortable and really clean study and we really had a nice stay. The location can't be better: it’s in the heart of Barcelona, near bus stop and subway station, great for exploring the city and very close to Park Guell. Ixchel is friendly and helpful host and she will help you with everything you need. She wrote herself a list of restaurants nearby, very useful… Really good correlation value/quality: raccomended for your visit! Grazie!

I'm from Barcelona and I love the city, I can recommend you places to visit, eat or go out. The study is completely independent so we will not have a lot of contact but I live at next door :) Soy de Barcelona y me encanta la ciudad, te puedo recomendar lugares para visitar, comer o salir. El estudio es totalmente independiente así que no nos veremos mucho.Pero cualquier cosa que necesites vivo en el piso de al lado :)
