Dear guests: when you coming home late, please do NOT TALK in the hallway. Open and shut my door QUIETLY, and please be respectful of my neighbors. Finally, although I understand that sometimes you might meet that special someone, you can't bring him/her home with you. My place is ONLY for the Airbnb guests who have booked my apartment -- No Exceptions!
In our apartments is not allowed to smoke (only on the balcony), to organize home parties, to make noise at night after 23h. We appreciate that all our guests wash their dishes before they leave the apartment, throw the garbage and put all used beddings and towels at one place. Many thanks and have a pleasant stay!
Overall we had a really great experience. A friend of the host met us there. She was 30 min late but was really friendly and showed us around the apartment. We loved the feel of the apartment and loved that it was on the top floor. The neighborhood was great, right next to the beach and a market. Metro station was also very close. We really appreciated having air conditioning because it did get hot and humid outside. We would definitely recommended this place to others.
The flat was exactly as shown on the pictures. It is very close to the sea which is very pleasant.
Kasinia was here to welcome us and she explained everything well to us.
The only thing to know before booking is that the staircase is very steep and narrow, it is quite an exercise to get to the fifth floor, but the view and nice atmosphere of the flat deserves it !
Really good experience, exactly as described, suited our needs well and the location is perfect. The host was very punctual and helpful. The flat is very cute, old style Barcelona ( just what we wanted) and the balcony was wonderful (lovely cast iron balcony with a a table for two to enjoy a glass of cava or a coffee!). The flat is perfect size for 2 - just big enough and the host thought of everything we might need. Very comfortable stay in the best location ever. Only thing I would say - the flat is on 5th floor after very narrow stairs, so not for the unfit or too weak to carry their suitcase! For us, it was much needed after enjoying plenty of tapas! If I go back to Barcelona (which I hope to) I would look to stay here again. In summary, perfect flat for a long weekend: Beach and culture, great restaurants and also the big square and shop is very close.
Me and my girlfriend had a lovely stay at this apartment. The location is unbeatable, the beach is right there and most of the city's attractions are within walking distance. And if you want/need, the metro is right nearby as well.
With a bakery as well as a fresh food market just around the corner, we could enjoy a delightful breakfast on the balcony every day.
The heat can be overwhelming for a pale guy like myself, so it was a definitive plus being able to come back to an air conditioned flat.
All in all, the apartment exceeded my expectations, would recommend it to any couples looking for a place to stay in Barcelona.
It's a very comfortable apartment, location is also the best. 5 minutes walk to the beach and subway, a lot of restaurants, big supermarket. The only inconvenient — the last floor without elevator — so, if you have a lot of big baggage, be prepared to the dramatic stairway to heaven :)
We had a lovely stay at this apartment! There were 3 of us and there was enough space for us all. We especially liked the balcony and the tapas bar La Ja-ica on Ginebra Street, just round the corner. It's a fantastic location with everything you need all around. The only complaint was the stairs - they can be brutal, but it's a good work out I guess! A friend of Xenia & Drasco let us in to the apartment, but they were very quick to respond to emails if we had any questions. We'd highly recommend this apartment!
Добрый день! Хотелось Вам рассказать свою историю путешествия в Испанию. Меня отправили в Испанию на обучение в пригород Барселоны на 2 дня и 3 ночи. Так как окончания обучения выпало на конец недели, то я решила остаться в Барселоне еще на 3 дня для свободного путешествия с моим молодым человеком.
От работы меня заселили в отель 5 звезд. Первый раз я была в Европе в 5 звездочном отеле и меня впечатлил этот отель, номер, я думала, что меня больше ничего так не впечатлит, но я ошибалась!!! и ошибалась очень сильно, стоило мне зайти в район Барсилонеты, увидев эти узкие улочки, балконы, открытые окна, маленькие ресторанчики сразу прочувствовалась жизнь местных жителей. А стоило мне зайти в квартиру я растаяла. Небольшая квартирка, но уютная и мне показалось, что я когда-то уже здесь была. Когда прилетел мой молодой человек и увидел эту квартиру, мы решили когда-нибудь купить такую же в этом районе. Завтракали мы всегда на балконе, наслаждаясь прелестным видом, солнечными лучами и духом жизни местных жителей.
Рядом с квартирой хороший супермаркет (дешевый) и рынок. До моря идти 5-10 мин.
Благодарна очень Дразго, он подсказал пару мест, куда можно сходить и рассказал историю возникновения района Барсилонеты. И еще могу сказать, что я люблю общаться с порядочными и честными людьми, так я могу охарактеризовать Дразго.
Спасибо Вам еще раз за ту сказку которая у нас была с моим молодым человеком в эти три дня!!! На три дня мы почувствовали себя испанцами.
