Owner is a landlord with multiple listings. This was my first booking on AIRBNB and thought it was individuals renting a flat, and I thought there would be a welcome, some emails from them and possibly some items left in the flat. The day before we were due to arrive e, I got an email from Manuel and I confirmed we would arrive at 21.30. He told me there was a €35 late check in charge. When we arrived Manuel has sent a lady to meet us who was very helpful. I said we did not expect to pay to check in and the original booking h did not mention this fee and said as it was not agreed when I booked, I had not agreed it. Lucia called Manuel and we didn't have to pay it. We asked for 2 sets of keys, at first we were told no there was only 1 set. Then Manual suggested we make a second set at own expense, which I did not agree to. Then Lucia gave us her set and said that the cleaner had a 3rd set so not a problem for us to have 2 sets.
The apartment is small, bright and smart. The bathroom is cramped and the shower is up several steps ( probably 1 metre above the floor in the bathroom. The shower was hot and worked fine, although easy to get into not as easy to climb down out of.
The flat is on the second floor with a small balcony. It is on a busy street so traffic noise as you would expect, and occasional noise late at night as pepole walk by.
Great value at the price and located just off Paseig de Gracie, close to shops and Casa Battle.
I might not book a flat from Manuel in future, as at no time did we feel welcome, it just felt like a transaction / a contract, and not what Airbnb seems to suggest on their website.... that their renters meet you and make you welcome. Lucia was welcoming, even after 2 arguments we had with Manuel.
Might just be easier to check into a hotel, no hassle with keys late check in andore facilities. I have rented apartments in over 10 cities and thus was the first time I used Airbnb, may also be th e last time !
Bien situado, un apartamento con encanto. Muy recomendable.
Manuel was nice and friendly and provided the extras that we asked for ( baby bed, blender and fans)
Basic essentials available in the apartment
A little noisy, with a rather busy street below
A better job could be done with the cleaning ( especially the floors)
A little touch such as providing hand washing soap and maybe a roll of paper towels in the kitchen would go a long way.
We enjoyed our short stay at Manuel's apartment in May. It was relatively close to all the major tourist attractions in the city center by foot. On our arrival, we were greeted by Manuel who was very friendly and helpful with various tourist tips. His apartment was clean, very spacious and in a safe neighborhood. The only issue we had, which was out of the control of the host, was the external noise level. Since the apartment is on a major street, the frequent noise from passing vehicles and people may be an issue for light sleepers. Other than that, Manuel's apartment is a great choice and we highly recommend it to those visiting Barcelona!
We had a lovely stay in this flat. The flat is very well located, clean and have everything you need for a short stay.
Manuel est un hôte fort sympathique, son appartement est bien agencé.
Wifi haut débit télévision, même si nous n'avons pas allumé cette dernière.
Kitchenette pouvant être utilisée, et frigo.
Très proche de plusieurs ligne de métro, ce qui permet de visité Barcelone en toute facilité.
Petits bar et restaurants dans le quartier. A 10 minutes à pieds de la place Catalunia et du haut de la Rambla.
Rien à redire ...
SI une petite chose, le voisin pense qu'il n'y a personne et laisse parfois (le premier matin) son réveille sonner pendant plus de 20 min. Un bon coup de poing sur la cloison et cela s'arrête.
My mom and I stayed in Manuel's apartment for 2 nights and it was fabulous! The location was fantastic and very close to casa battlo and some great outdoor tapas restaurants and cafés. The apartment was very clean and Manuel was super nice and accommodating with our check in and check out times. Definitely recommend!
