Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona. It is a lovely and clean room. The location of the apartment was just perfect, very central

    April 2014
  • Juan Luis and Juanjo were fantastic hosts! They gave us great directions to their house as well as perfect recommendations on restaurants in the area that we would never have discovered without them. They were both very friendly and open to have a conversation at any time. They told us to make ourselves at home and they truly meant it. Because of them and the perfect location of their home, we would certainly recommend them and will stay with them again if we find ourselves back in Barcelona.

    April 2014
  • José Luis is the perfect host: both friendly and reliable. His beautiful home has lots of old world charm, is spacious, extremely comfortable and ideally located for both the city and the beach, defenitely the best place to stay in Barcelona!

  • Hello All, I stayed in "COZY Room" for two weeks, and it was beyond what I expected. Where I am from "cozy" is used as a polite way to say small, and these two rooms were far from small. The first room you enter has a modern sofa that is very comfortable, and it sits in front of an immense library of books on art, design and various other topics and genres. The room has a fridge, wardrobe, and a balcony. Then you enter the second room through a wooden door (that slides away) revealing a large and very comfortable bed that is immaculate in white sheets, shams, and blanket. The room also has a table and chairs for working or eating, two bed side tables with lamps, a dresser, portable heater, kettle, and a balcony. The room was furnished with tissue, tea, coffee, milk, sugar and spoons. Both balconies have beautiful plants, and they overlook a small street with a popular sandwich and cava den. The view is small but you can see the beautiful Montjuic on one side and a park square on the other side. The two rooms were very private and I felt like a king. The apartment is amazing. The shared spaces consist of a large living room that is decorated with the most unique contemporary art, a large television, a large sofa, and a coffee table. The room also has a balcony that peeks out onto the same street as the rooms do. The living room joins with the dining room which is cheerful and clean. Both these rooms have doors into the foyer. The kitchen is nice and complete with washer, toaster oven, and beautiful glassware. The bathroom is unique as it is split into two. One door is the toilet, and one has the shower and sink. This is handy as one can be used while another is in use. No waiting around for the facilities. The location is perfect. In between the beaches (Port Vell/Barceloneta) and El Born (Riberia). Between a commuter train station, the Metro, the city park (where Gaudi made a his first commission while still in school), and the post office. It is a short walk to Las Ramblas (where many tourists go to see street performers or shop.) Jose and Juanjo were amazing hosts. They stocked the room with brochures on the various things to do and see in Barcelona. They also sent me an email with a list of the best places to eat, drink, shop and see. I can tell you I tried many places in the city and their recommendations were always spot on. Their energy was peaceful, and welcoming; A zest for culture and hospitality. Jose and I sat drinking cava and chatting about my home, his home, and life in general. Juanjo was throwing a party at the Barcelona version of Moulin Rouge and invited me and my friends, and offered us free admission and drinks. Can you really do better than...

  • It was an absolute pleasure to stay in this cozy room. Everything ran smoothly; the place was spotless, José Luis & Juanjo are friendly and helpful hosts, and the apartment was ideally situated just steps away from Barceloneta. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique and memorable experience in Barcelona.

  • We stayed two nights in the room and had a great time! The room is very clean and very near all nice spots. Jose Luis and Juanjo are great hosts and made us feel very welcome, we definitely come back the next time we visit Barcelona.

    March 2014
  • Beautiful home and a truly perfect location near the port and La Rambla.

    March 2014
  • Jose Luis and Juanjo are very lovely people, and the room provided was fantastic. One of the most comfy beds I have slept in, and the apartment was in a central location near the port, which offered a lovely and not too long walk to the main tourist destinations. The guys were very respectful of privacy and great guys, keen to help with whatever you needed. Would stay at the same place again when I visit the beautiful city that is Barcelona :). An ideal stay.

    March 2014
  • José Luis & Juanjo were great hosts! The first impression of their accomodation after having climbed the stairs in this unique old building which is located just perfectly in Barceloneta was great. The flat has high ceilings, nice interior, is very open and the big old windows, which are open most of the time create this special light and cosy atmosphere. Once you step in it feels like home already.
    Downstairs just in the neighbourhood is this funky old bar, where you can have beautiful jamón and beef and this nice rosét with it, kind of champaign, think it was called kava.
    José recommended some really nice restaurants to us as well as places to go, which was a great help, as we haven´t really checked anything before.
    And you, as already said, he location can´t be better, 5 minutes to the beach, also 5 minutes to this funky neighbourhood called el born.
    Really a nice, pleasant and uncomplicated stay, thanks for everything!
    So we recommend a stay with José Luis & Juanjo 100% and would come back immediately!
    Cheers Isa & Phil

    March 2014
  • We have 4 days enjoyed the hospitality of José Luis & Juanjo. The apartment is located on the most favorable place to Barcelona. Both the apartment, the hosts and the location is a must. If we visit Barcelona again we sure here again.
