From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
Big cosy room with a large comfortable bed and a balcony with a great view. Central location. Lots of small boutiques and cafés around. Very bohemian neighbourhood. The cafés don't close till 3am. Laura wasn't in Barcelona when I arrived. Additional charges for late check in may apply.
Best Place to stay for holidays. The apartment is really beautiful and everything is like it is described. Its very central and everything to reach by feet. A pitty that I couldt see Laura herself, but her friend was very kind to me and showed me everthing. Communication with laura was also very kind and very helpful. If I visit Barcelona again, I will again ask for renting the room, which was very bright. The room was also very clean comfortable. In the night it is a bit noisy, but who will be at home at night in Barcelona? ;-)
So thanks for everything!
Le logement est très bien placé, El Born est un quartier très vivant, proche de tout, c'est parfait.
En revanche, nous n'avons pas eu la chambre sur les photos mais la chambre d'à côté, plus petite de plus elle ne ferme pas à clé. Les pièces communes (salle de bain, cuisine) sont assez sales, personne n'a vraiment l'air de s'occuper du ménage ni même de la vaisselle. Cela ne donne pas envie de manger à l'appartement.
Dommage que Laura ne soit pas à Barcelone mais Michèle est quelqu'un de très accueillant. Effectivement si il y a un problème, Laura est à l'écoute (à condition que vous ayez du Wifi ou un forfait de téléphone adapté puisque vous ne la verrez pas).
Nous avons été assez déçu de l'atmosphère de cette colocation, personne ne parle à personne, c'est chacun dans sa chambre donc pour l'échange humain ce n'est pas le meilleur endroit.
Le seul vrai bon point est donc l'emplacement qui nous a permis de vraiment profiter de Barcelone et d'en voir le maximum à pied !
Appartement calme et vraiment très bien situé. Le quartier est vivant et en plein coeur de Barcelone. Idéal pour des gens qui sont en visite le temps de quelques jours. Chambre lumineuse et spacieuse avec un petit balcon très appréciable. Nous avons eu nos propres clés ainsi qu'une bonne connexion internet. Dommage que le salon et la cuisine soient sombre et que certaines pièces paraissent impersonnelles. Très bon accueil de Michele qui est très énergique et bonne communication avec Laura. Le séjour s'est très bien passé. Merci beaucoup!
Laura's friend (Roberto) checked us into the apartment. Roberto was very nice and helpful. He gave us a quick tour of the apartment and wrote down a few restaurants and places to shop. The apartment looked exactly as it was pictured. We knew that the neighborhood we were staying in would probably be noisy based on past reviews and it was (usually until 2am) - we were prepared for that so we didn't mind. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but not too bad for a short stay. The other rooms were full when we were there, but using the bathroom wasn't an issue (we never had to wait). We did not use the kitchen on this stay, but it looked well equipped with what you would need.
We loved this neighborhood and would return to the same area if we visited again! There is a neat church (Santa Maria del Mar) near by and tons of shops and places to eat. We also lucked out seeing a parade on Halloween night full of people dressed in goblin costumes (I think) and lighting sparklers. We most likely would not have seen this if we would have stayed in a different area (although I'm not sure what celebrations took place in the other districts). This really is a great jump off point to see all of the sites in Barcelona.
My room at Laura's place was wonderful. Very spacious and with a nice little balcony overlooking the heart of el born. I will say this, however...the rest of the apartment is not super nice. Pretty filthy, in fact. But if you just want a nice room to sleep in at a great price and great location, look no further. Just don't be expecting a nice clean kitchen/bathroom to use.
