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.
Xavi welcomed us very warmly with drinks and nibbles. We enjoyed a chat with him on our first night and he have us some good tips. The room was very comfortable. We had everything we needed. Barcelona was brilliant, so relaxed and friendly. I would recommend Xavi's apartment for anyone wanting a relaxed weekend.
Xavi was a great host! Really helpful in terms of giving advise on places where to go for restaurants and cultural activities.
I came with my 5 year old daughter and Xavi did give her books and colouring material for her to keep busy whilst in the flat.
The flat is in a typical Spanish authentic building. Flat was always left tidy. Our room was comfortable and spacious. I would definitely recommend Xavi's place.
Xavi has a beautiful apartment in the El Gotic neighborhood of Barcelona. The location is very good, right next to the City Hall, 5 min from El Rambla, 10 min from Boqueria de Barcelona and about 20min from the beach.
The building itself was old style and it is now in renovation. With the addition of the elevator, Xavis' guests won't burn as many calories...and gain some weight from all the great food in Barcelona!
Xavi has decorated the apartment with some original artwork. As a host, he was direct in expressing the rules of the house, but he knew to give us privacy and let us enjoy our stay.
We really appreciated all the tips and places he recommended in Barcelona, we ate really well.
Another plus was that we had the chance to meet other airbnb-ers from different places and we really loved this opportunity and the conviviality.
All in all, we had a good time in Barcelona and we want to thank Xavi for hosting us.

Wszystko w jak najlepszym porządku.Super lokalizacja , bardzo przstronny pokój.
Przemiły gospodarz , bardzo uczynny , ujął nas śniadaniem
Xavi was very warm and welcoming, making us feel at home in his apartment and in Barcelona. We sat down and enjoyed watermelon when we arrived and our room was great and the small balcony had a view of some great architecture. The apartment is traditional, and decorated with Xavi's very talented artwork. Someone who like a clean apartment and is good about cleaning up after themselves would enjoy this space--as Xavi both keeps his place clean and tidy and expects the same from his guests. Thanks, Xavi!
Мы отдыхали вдвоём с женой в июне 2015 года. Прекрасный готический квартал оставил незабываемые впечатления как и само место проживания- старинный дом с подъездом, массивными дверями, лестницей. Радушный приём хозяина настроил на приятный отдых. Важная для нас и подробная информация о шопинге, магазинах и ресторанах помогла рационально использовать время и деньги. Местоположение удобно для пляжного отдыха и прогулок по центру города. Проживание в комнате было комфортным, кухня и ванная комната всегда в нашем распоряжении. Приятный совместный ужин и разговоры помогли сгладить языковой барьер и узнать испанский язык. Хозяин Хави очень внимательный и радушный .
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!

About the Host, Xavi
soy amante de vivir bien, del arte y de la belleza. Me interesa todo lo que valga la pena, buenos libros, cine, buen vino, etc. Procuro estar al día de lo que sucede en el mundo, cerca y lejos de mi. Me gusta la gente inteligente, buena y con sentido del humor.
