Cosy and central apartment located in the authentic and bohemian Poble Sec neighborhood. Accommodates 2 people and is on a quiet street. You can live and experience the real essence of Barcelona and far of tourist aglomeration
Bati and Enï were both very reactive, friendly and welcoming. I had a lovely time at their place and a lot of privacy. The room is well equipped, has a big closet, a desk and a heater - the bed is comfy and warm :) The flat is also clean and organized.
I felt totally comfortable leading my little life around and the area is also really nice and convenient (a few minutes away from metro stations, and from the center/old town). Thank you, Bati and Enï!
Solo tuve el placer de conocer a Eni, una gran anfitriona. Tanto la habitación como la casa muy limpia y ordenada. Perfectamente situada y muy cerca del metro. Una gran experiencia.
Our stay was good, had no problems. We were a little hesitant and sceptical about 'private room' concept. In fact first day we didn't feel so good and private. But from next day, after knowing our hosts eni and bati, we felt it isn't bad as we r thinking! ;).. Room is just enough for 2 people. We just came there for sleep over so didn't mind being a little cozy..
bonjour Eni et Bati,
Nous avons passé une semaine à Barcelone chez Eni et Bati, l'accueil est chaleureux, l'hébergement idéalement situé à deux pas du métro, à proximité de la vieille ville ce qui rend les déplacements en transport en commun ou à pied faciles.
Situé au quatrième étage avec ascenseur, le quartier n'est pas très passant, aussi calme que possible par rapport au fait que nous sommes dans une ville de 2 millions d'habitants.
La chambre est spacieuse, les rangements assez nombreux.
Un seul regret, ne pas avoir pu échanger davantage avec nos hötes mais l'emploi du temps de touristes et des travailleurs est rarement compatible !
Les conseils de visites et bonnes adresses de restaurants sont judicieux et à suivre absolument.
Bati est Breton, cela facilite grandement les échanges.
En résumé, cet hébergement idéalement situé, d'un bon rapport qualité prix est à recommander pour une visite de Barcelone.
We had a nice experience in Barcelona. Enï and Bati's apartment is well located, and it was interesting to discuss with them about the life. They are a cool couple.
We were not expecting a five star hotel, but a real life place, therefore we were satisfied.
They advised us about what to see, where to eat good food for a good price.
Thank you Enï & Bati
This was our first experience of being guests. While I want to be fair ,I was very disappointed. I do feel I need to state the facts for other guests and they are given without any animosity.
On their Airbnb site there is a picture of a massage room with various (email hidden)is of course gives an certain ,lovely,spiritual ambience which appealed greatly to us , with attractive possibilities. I enquired the price and Bati said he would check the price with Eni.
On arrival we were told she hadn't been doing it for 10 months and wouldn't being doing so in the near future because of her wrist. Why wasn't I told that? Why is it still displayed? This room is now a storage room. and easy to delete!. A miss representation.
The pillows had kapok coming out of their covers ,only a pillow slip over, so certainly NOT hygienic..That is really important with so many guests and common housekeeping..Even on a budget price.
The one bedside light had a red bulb so impossible to read in bed (website hidden) also had a cracked base.
At night there was noise from the road, whining dog in the flat below and lift noise.
The late check in at 4pm means, if you arrive by plane earlier you have to wheel /carry your luggage around with you which is not ideal. The same with a 10am check out. We were not offered the chance to leave our luggage until our afternoon flight and our hosts left before we were told what to do with the key.
It is near the tube station but then most places are.
Bati & Eni are a young ,hip, pleasant pair and I don't blame them for earning a few extra ££. However, they do need to improve on these things and have integrity.
If you just want just a crash pad then maybe it will do .
I write this as an experienced Airbnb host and hope it will be taken in goodwill.
Barcelona excelled all our other expectations..What a gem .
We are sorry, but Eni are working in this room again, so we thing that isn't convenient to delete this picture. Glo, before than your arrival we never said you that Eni will do you a massage, even so you booked knowing that maybe Eni would not do a massage. So, we understand that this was not the only reason you wanted to come to our house, does it? We have a room for massages and beauty treatments but that does not mean we can or should do massage all people who ask. Eni has another job and other clients to do massage them, then you first have to agree on a schedule with her. Eni explained you that she had a tendinitis. We are sorry but we don't see any problem with this situation... We never promised anything that we have not fulfilled then.
About the pillows: the pillows have a cover pillow and other pillowcase, and always are clean!! with this pillowcase the pillow never coming out. I don't understand because you say this. We are sure that is HIGIENIC. We have several sheets and pillowcases for our guests and always they have clean sheets. NEVER any guest complained because we are not higienic or because the flat, the room or us are dirty.
About the lamp: you have another light for read, this isn't the only one light in the room. And this lamp isn't broken, like you say only the base is cracked and glued.
About the check-in and check-out: when you booked you accept the schedules. Why you booked if the schedules do not seem right? We are very flexible with the schedules. If we don't work or we can always try to adjust this schedules and acording the hours of check-in, check-out with our guests. But if we are working or we have to receive other guests, we only can to have this schedules... We don't accept that guests leave the lugagge at home if the same day come to home other guests, this is for security (in case of stole, broken, etc.) we want to be responsable in this bad situatons. We don't have a room where we you put inside the bags and close the door with lock. But in demand we offer to our guests the adress of diferents lockers very close and well located.
You don't understand the concept Airbnb like us. Is very different than if you go to a hotel or a hostel... We are not in Airbnb for earn money, we are sorry but you are very wrong. For us Airbnb experience is personalized with each guest, treat guests as individuals persons and not as customers; to be warmly and to do them feel like at home, treat our guests as if they were just one of the family, advise and help them in whatever they need, is to share experiences, views, learning about other cultures, take an interest in their motivations, if there create bonds of friendship (we made friends with some guests and we still have contact with them). All this is wonderful!!
We are sorry but we think that you don't have the same concept of us...
This was our first Airbnb experience, and It couldn't have been better!! Bati and Eni were really warm and welcoming when we arrived, and made us feel relaxed and right at home after a long journey.
They are a lovely couple, who always made time to talk to us, be it about our experience in Barcelona, or any other subject we could think of! We had some really good conversations together, they are really interesting to talk to. Staying with them definitely made our visit to Barcelona much more special than it would have been otherwise.
Their flat in the relaxing Poble Sec area was always clean and tidy, and was very easy to get to, with good transport connections around Barcelona and beyond, also an excellent base for walking. It felt like a privilege staying in their apartment as though we were locals!
Our trip was made a lot more personal by their indispensable list of recommendations which they provide for their guests.
Thanks so much Bati & Eni :)
Perfectly located to get anywhere in the city. Very close to the harbour!
Bati and Eni were a very enjoyable couple. They made us feel right at home. We had a lot of fun visiting with them. They were very helpful in telling us how to get to their place from the airport, and were very sharing and welcoming with their apartment. We feel like we've made two new friends!
Bati and Eni are great! they are hospitable and very kind.
They have to leave and they left their home without any problems. For any doubt or any questions they are ready to help you.
The house is near Avenida Paralel, In 10 mins you can arrive to the Rambla.
The room is not very big but comfortable and very clean as all the house!
It's the perfect solution for some days in Barcellona!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
