  • COSY Room was a delightful space. Soft and cosy bed in a bedroom adjacent to a lovely sitting room complete with an interesting library. Jose Luis ensured we had lots of information and resources about the area and was available to answer any questions we had.

  • We are very grateful for Jose and Juanjo opening up there home to us and helping us navigate our way thru Barcelona. There kindness and patience was much appreciated! There home was more spacious than I imagined. Also the location was perfect for us. I felt very safe and secure in there home. This was my first time using AirBnB and it was certainly positive.

  • Deb and I were at the end of our 12 day cruise, and we finished up in Barcelona which just happened to have a 24 hour taxi strike.
    I emailed José who was kind enough to prepare a map and told us how to get to his location without the use of taxis.
    José has a great location close lots of activities restaurants, beaches, close to buses or even if you just want to walk around this lovely city.
    I had to use a wheelchair during my visit and we found Barcelona very inviting for that purpose
    We found the accommodation very cozy with a bedroom and the sitting room for our exclusive use. We found José very helpful very charming and would recommend staying here to anyone traveling to Barcelona thanks José.

  • I stayed with José Luis and Juanjo for 3 nights on 24-26 June 2014. Their apartment is immaculate, situated in an amazing location close to Barcelona beach and an amazing array of great eateries and specialty food stores. José was gracious enough to provide me with an extraordinary list of the best little eateries in the local area. I couldn't have asked for a better location and better hosts who were very easy going, relaxed, friendly and willing to answer any questions or provide tips and advice when necessary. The room was spacious, airy and comfortable with a gorgeous ambience about it and I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone that wants to stay in the El Born area of this great city, close to Ramblas and a short walk to the best that Barcelona has to offer. Believe me, you'll feel like a local living the dream in Barcelona by the time you leave this place.

  • We stayed with Jose Luis and Juanjo for 5 nights and enjoyed every moment.
    The room was even better then the pictures (and we had high expectations!). It was spacious and stylish with our own sitting room/library filled with barcelona literature. The bed was large and comfortable. The hosts made sure that we had lots of space and plenty of privacy. They made their space feel like ours and we respectable and genuinely good people with a great energy in the house!

    The location is perfect- right between el gotica, borne and barceloneta beach. Juanjo and Jose made sure to provide lots of recommendations (which we tried many and agreed with the high praise!) and were eager to answer questions and share their love of Barcelona!

    We would love to stay in this space again- of our 6 week trip this will remain a fond memory with hopes to return!

    Thanks Jose Luis and Juanjo!

  • All i can say is awesome, i had 2 different reservations so please read my previous review

    June 2014
  • This was the best place on my recent trip to barcelona. The room was spotless and included a 2nd sitting room with a small mini fridge. In the bedtoom, there is an electric teapot provided with coffee, tea, sugar provided. The have the prettiest red floors with a super comfortable bed, super soft pillows and sheets. There'(email hidden) just out the front door and around the corner is the 7 portes restaurant. I bought a dinnet show for 55 euros that included 5 course menu, wine, cava and even cognac with dessert. Then a concert with an amazing cuban singer that was sensational. Best thing, walking home was just around the corner.close by is the beach, a bike rental shop, and the hopping borne section for late tapas and gelayo
