  • Xenia And Drasco were great hosts, really responsive when I reached out to them. Neither were available when we arrived so we were shown around the apartment by one of their friends. She was lovely and very helpful.

    The apartment is perfect for exploring Barcelona, super close to the beach and there are some fab restaurants withing 2mins walk. we spent very little time in the apartment because we were out a lot, but it was modern, clean and comfortable...albeit a little noisy on street level :)

    Thanks for having us guys!

  • English version:
    We're back home from an amazing week in Barceloneta! We stayed in our own beach flat at Carrer de la Mestrança and are so happy with everything! Not least the amazing location to the beach from the apartment. The hosts have really been to any satisfaction and I can heartily recommend their driver, Peter who would pick up and leave at the airport and drive you directly to the apartment. In the area there are plenty of supermarkets, bars, pizza, tapas and it's walking distance to Opium, Las Ramblas, and much more! Will definitely rent apartment of Xenia and Drasco again next time I go to Barcelona.

    Swedish version:
    Nu är jag och min tjejkompis hemma igen från en fantastisk vecka i Barceloneta! Vi bodde i en marklägenhet på Carrer de la Mestrança och är så nöjda med allt! Inte minst sagt det otroliga läget till stranden från lägenheten. Värdarna har verkligen varit till all belåtenhet och jag kan varmt rekommendera deras Chaufför som gärna hämtar och lämnar på flygplatsen och kör dig direkt till lägenheten. I området finns det mängder av super markets, barer, pizzeria, tapas och det är gångavstånd till Opium, Las Ramblas med mera! Kommer definitivt att hyra lägenhet av Xenia och Drasco igen nästa gång jag åker till Barcelona.

  • we enjoyed our staying at menstranca in the first week of may. the location is perfect, you can see the sea when you open the door,
    nearby metrostation, port, cableway to to the montjuic and a lot more...
    everything for people who love to go out.
    xenia and drasco stayed in contact with us during our stay which was realy kind and helpful.

  • Onestamente non capisco come possano esserci recensioni positive per questa proprietà. A parte la posizione, è una soluzione davvero pessima.
    Pareti di carton-gesso con rumori che arrivano da ogni dove, quelli della strada si sentono come se non ci fossero i serramenti.
    L'appartamento era molto sporco, con un odore di fogna insopportabile.
    Bagno cieco con un lavandino da 30 cm per 40, in cui era difficile anche solo lavarsi i denti.
    L'appartamento non ha riscaldamento, se non un piccolo calorifero elettrico. Certo, è Barcellona, ma quando fuori ci sono 8/9 gradi, non è un disservizio irrilevante.
    Onestamente, non lo consiglierei mai ad un amico.

  • We have had a lovely time in Barcelona en were pleased to be so close to the sea, however the place was very small en not very clean. It could do with a make-over and a good scrub.
    It took 3 minutes for my white socks to turn pitch black.
    There is no light switch in the bedroom or it was well hidden.

    Response from Xenia And Drasco:

    Dear Margot, there is a switch on the right wall and sorry about the floor, we'll talk to the cleaning lady and find it out. Also in this case you could contact us immediately and we would clean once again without any problem =)

  • I had 2 wonderul nights on the Beach, literally at Barcenoleta. The place exceeded my expectations.

    I booked last minute but both hosts were able to answer my messages within minutes of my request and so I didn't waste a single moment coming over.

    I arrived early thanks to the help of (website hidden) maps and a taxi and Ksenia was very quick to meet me and made me feel very welcome.

    I would come back here a million times over!

  • Great Location and a clean apartement. 1 Minute to the beach, restaurants and little supermarkets.
    Plenty enough space for 2 persons and for 4 persons it wouldn't be a problem either!
    Perfect place to spend a couple of days in Barcelona.

    October 2013
  • Our holiday in Barcelona was a great succes. The apartment was small but nice, especially because it's 20 meters from the beach! Ksenia and Drasko are very nice people (good communication) and they helped us with our bagage at the day of departure.
    It's definitely worth it to come back!

  • Great location- only a few hundred metres to the beach with Spars (grocery store) close by for food and some great tapas bars only 10 minutes walk away.

    The place is basic and small (especially the bathroom) but was comfortable for 2 people and felt very safe even though it's on the ground floor.

  • Ksenia and Drasko were very nice. Location was perfect, we had a great time:)

Xenia: I am originally from Moscow and I moved to Barcelona 4 years ago. I love this city because it's a perfect combination of history, culture and seaside, mountains and beaches, because of its climate (300 sunny days in a year) and because of it's size - it not too small neither too big. I practice Yoga, play beach volley and study german language. I wish all my guests enjoy Barcelona the same way I do, and I since I know Barcelona very well, I can give you good tips on where to eat, go for a shopping, go at night, which sightseeing to visit, and whatever you wish to know about this beautiful city. I speak spanish, english, russian and german. Drasco: I am originally from Serbia, have been living in Barcelona since 2001. I like to play basketball, interested in new technologies and in foreign languages. I know every single street of the Old Town of Barcelona and a vast majority of the other Barcelona neighbourhoods. I like people and I can answer to almost any question regarding your stay in Barcelona. I speak english, swedish, russian, catalan, spanish and serbian. We prefer to travel on our own, to stay at private houses or rooms all over the world because we believe that way we can learn more about a new country, its people, traditions, etc. Our life motto: if you dare to win, you can't lose! :-) You're welcome to stay with us in Barcelona! :-)
