  • Akira made us feel very welcome in Barcelona! As soon as we were on the aerobus we recieved a text from him saying that he waited for us in the apartment. It was no problem finding the apartment thanks to his clear directions how to get there from the airport. It was perfect for us 6 women: clean, 3 bedrooms, 2 toilets, 2 sinks (only one extra shower could make it just a little more perfect). We could easely walk to the Sagrada Familia, the beach and Barceloneta and the Gothic area. And not expensive at all!
    I would surely recommend staying in this apartment to anyone!

  • Akira was a courteous and helpful host. we could always ask for tips or contracting him. The apartment was as shown on the pictures, very clean and comfortable. All in all was it a very nice trip to Barcelona and we would book again at any times this accomodation. Thank you, Akra and have a very nice 2013!

  • Strengths- Location. 1)If you like to walk, this place is great. We walked to Sagrada Familia a few times and to Old Town as well. It is abut 20 minutes to both places. If you want, the underground is a block away, so you can get around that way too. 2) Akira really tries to be helpful and keeps in contact with you. He sets you up with a lot of information. 3) The bathrooms were just re-done. They are pretty nice. 4) I took the Metro to the train station to get to the airport, all on the T-10 Ticket (10 Metro /train multi-person trips for about 9 Euro). Pretty easy to do. 5) We asked Akira to get us some groceries because we arrived Christmas day. He set us up and charged 6 euros for what we wanted. 6) He also set up an airport shuttle for us when we arrived, although you get by with the train within one block. 7) Many restaurants and small groceries down Marina. 8) Heat was very good.

    Just Ok- 1) Furnishings and bedding are just ok. The place was pretty clean, but didn't quite feel like hotel clean. 2) Street noise was there, but not too bad. If you are a light sleeper, it may be a problem- but you are in Barcelona!

    Weaknesses- 1) Door handles/hinges squeak (loudly!). 2) The apartment could use a touch up with some handy work and a little more cleaning. 3) The shower is elevated and smaller in size. The door entrance is small and I tripped and fell on the floor, but luckily I wasn't hurt. If you are a big body, the shower will be a definite squeeze.

    Overall, it was an older European apartment in what we thought was a very good location.

  • Akira is e very nice and pleasant host, with good management and customer focus skills. Even if you didn`t made your touristic itinerary, he will help you and give you the best advises.He always answered when we need something (even if it was late at night)

    The apartment is nice and clean; the living room is perfect to take lunch/watch tv or play a board game - we were 6 persons.

    Overall, I recommend Akira's flat! it was a nice experience!!! if I will visit BCN again, I will book this apartment with no restraints.

  • Great apartment. Clean, comfortable and provides enough space for 5 (we are a family with 3 grown-ups) or 6. Located very near to the metro station and no more than 20 minutes walk to Sagrada Familia, La Ramblas or the beach. Very good supermarket and a small marketplace nearby (100 meters). Akira is very kind and helpful host. We definitely recommend this apartment for a great visit to Barcelona!

  • Great location - four blocks from the beach and right on the tube station. Far enough out of town to be quieter than staying on Las Ramblas. I would say that this apartment is a real Spanish experience. It's like having your own apartment in Barcelona and plenty big enough for five. I would say that unless you have a very small child, having two in the smallest bedroom would be a bit of a squeeze. Akira is available when you need him to be and a very accomodating host. He was on hand straight away when we had problems getting into the apartment and for that I thank him very much.

    Akira is very nice and helpful; he gave us good advices and adress, very appreciated and usely during your stay. Thank you.

  • We had a really good experience! Akira was a great host and went out of his way to acocomodate us. We went with our kids and he even put together a crib at the last minute. Place was nice. The bed was really comfortable. We loved opening the windows and a cool breeze would pass through the entire apartment. It was great!

  • Akira is a great host!The apartment is very well located close to the metro, and about 20 minutes walking distance from the Sagrada Familia and the Barceloneta beach. Though the equipment is basic. Overall I recommend Akira's flat!

    June 2012
  • Great spacious apartment exactly as pictured in a really good location no more than 2 minutes away from the Metro station and a reasonable walking distance to the Sagrada Familia and La Ramblas. The 3 rooms and facilities were as described and ould have fit a larger party than the 5 on our trip. Akira was also a great host who was very helpful giving us information for the trip before the trip. Only thing I would say is that visitors should definitely pay attention to how to open the door when you are handed over the keys as we had to call Akira when we couldn't figure out how to open it but it really is simple once you get the hang of it.
