Interaction with Guests
Guests have full freedom and have my help and recommendations if needed.
The “Barri Gòtic” is architecturally unique, full of beauty. It is a cosmopolitan neighborhood where people from all countries live in total harmony. The street is pedestrianized and although it is in the center it's very quiet. In the flat, you can not hear any cars or people, only the bells from the church of Sant Just, that is in front of the balcony of the room.
the apartment is perfectly situated for commuting around the city. There are two different subway lines next to the house. There are bus stops and a train station to go (to nearby beach towns) too at five minutes.
The normal behavior of civilized people is required. You can not smoke in the house, but you can on the terrace. Leave the kitchen and bathroom clean after you use it.
Wir waren Anfang Juni bei Xavi zu Gast. Er ist wirklich ein super Gastgeber der uns gerne weitergeholfen hat, wenn er konnte. Eine Karte der Stadt lag in der Wohnung, sodass er einem direkt vor Ort noch Tipps geben konnte. Die Wohnung ist ebenfalls super. Die Lage ist einfach optimal (15min zum Strand und 10 min zum Pl. Catalunya). Das Zimmer hatte für 2 Personen eine sehr gute Größe.
Ich würde jeder Zeit wieder zu Xavi fahren!
Xavi was a truly wonderful host. We drove into Barcelona to Xavi's place and for Americans it was comical for the GPS to tell you to turn down a street that was bike path size and teeming with people. The sea of people parted and there's a paid parking spot right next door where I think Xavi got us a discount. It was wonderfully convenient.
Xavi's photos of the entrance and courtyard helped us navigate getting to the flat as my french cell phone wasn't wor king with the Spanish network. We loved Xavi the minute we arrived. We shared a glass of wine and made quick conversation. He asked if we were going to head out to (email hidden) was 11pm. We were starving. So he took us out, pointed out neighborhood spots along the way and dropped us at Set de Born which was amazing. It was our best meal in Barcelona and we would have eaten there again the second night if Xavi hadn't recommended another hopping place that was very good.
The flat was perfect -price, centrally located, quiet with human noise (the birds outside were chatty so use earplugs for them), the bed was huge (a king for us which was great, we're 6'+tall), the room was big, the ceiling fan cooled off the heat of the day (perfect for the afternoon siesta), and quick access to Metro.
It was my first time to Barcelona and my other half's fifth time. We had an amazing time and Xavi is a big part of our memories there. I've been all over Europe and Barcelona is now up near the top of my list and I hope to get back soon. Thank you again Xavi.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, Stadtteil ist sehr authentisch, das Haus in dem Xavi wohnt ist großartig. Xavi ist ein prima Gastgeber, sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Alles in Allem ein toller Aufenthalt in Barcelona und absolut empfehlenswert!
Everything was as expected... So it was perfect !
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt bei Xavi! Er hat uns sehr herzlich in Empfang genommen und wir haben uns sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Zimmer sind liebevoll eingerichtet. Alles ist sehr sauber und ordentlich. Xavi hat uns viele gute tipps für die Stadt gegeben und war für jede Frage offen. Die Wohnung liegt absolut zentral und ist trotzdem sehr ruhig zum schlafen! Wir würden jederzeit wieder zu Xavi fahren!
It was wonderful to be guests from Xavi! He was welcoming us really lovely. The Appartement is really central, comfortable, clean... all in all wonderful! We really recomended Xavi!
We had such a great time at Xavi's house. He was very hospitable and helpful and he often went above and beyond what we expected in a host. He gave us the space to do our own thing, but was also great company and we really enjoyed getting to know him. His house is lovely, very clean and quiet, which is amazing considering its smack bang in the middle of the gothic quarter, as central as you could hope to be in Barcelona. Also, the bed is super comfortable! Honestly, we couldn't have hoped for a better experience and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying with Xavi.
