  • We had a good stay in this room. The room we had was very spacious, bed was comfortable, and the shared bathroom was clean. You are close to the beach and el borne here. Only complaint we had was the door to our room would not lock! It would appear to be locked but you could just push on the doors and they would open up, happened when you locked it both from inside and out. Would of been nice to lock it when we were out considering other travelers stay in the apartment. Other then that have no complaints, good overall stay.

  • We felt very good during our stay in the vintage double room of José Luis & Juanjo. The location is just perfect right between Barceloneta (beach) and the historic centre. Shops and bars are conveniently nearby the apartment building.
    The apartment as well as the room is big and very spacious. We would definitely recommend this place and come back soon.

  • José Luis & Juanjo,... Oh I am smiling just thinking about you two and your very unique, generous and charming top floor flat, just blocks from the sea. My friend and I absolutely loved our time in BCN, starting from this gorgeous room. It is quiet, even though located so centrally; though as you open those windows in the morning, a breeze of sea smell flows in with this vibrant energy. Oh it made us feel so good.

  • This place was great it was clean and comfortable and it is so much better than staying at an hotel because we could cook our own food and relax, the location is what makes this place amazing, only 10 min walk to beach and 5min to city center, Jose & Luis gave us a map and took the time to go through it with us telling us where to go and not to go.

    Without doubt we would recommend this place and stay here again if we went back to Barcelona.

  • We've had a wonderful time staying at the Vintage double room offered by Jose Luis & Juanjo! They were perfect hosts, helping us in any way possible, whether with directions or advice on what to see in the city. The room was perfectly located as well! Everything was within walking distance!

  • Lovely room and great location! The building is amazing and the decoration of the flat as nice as you can see in the pictures. We hardly saw our host, he welcomed us the first day but they live on the appartment downstairs so we didn´t saw them much Jose Luis was very helpful sending us a full list of places to go, restaurant to eat, etc.
    The best: the location, the area and the good public transport conection. Amazing pieces of furniture that make the place really special.
    The worst: the bed is very small (we are not big people and our feet were out) and the moquitos! Bring a repelant with you! Also right now they are working on the street and the workers start at 8am (Sat included) so not good if you are planning to rest.
