Appartement catastrophique. Les fenêtres ne ferment pas, les carreaux de la cuisine sont cassés, les lits sont minuscules (1m40 de large sur des sommiers grincants...), il n'y a pas de fenêtres dans les chambres, il manque des poignets aux portes des chambres, les plombs sautent tout le temps, impossible de brancher un 2e radiateur pour tout l'appartement sans faire tout sauter, la machine à laver ne rince pas et n'essore pas, les canapés sont noirs de crasse sous de vagues draps blancs cache misère, la salle de bain tombe en ruine. C'est assez fou puisque les photos de l'appartement laissent croire à un endroit cosy et fonctionnel.... De plus les hôtes sont sympathiques et essaient de faire oublier la vétusté des lieux en se montrant très reactifs aux besoins des hôtes. Mais franchement, nous avons eu la nette impression de nous être fait avoir comme des bleus.
The worst guest experience we have ever had! Okay to start with this this guest booked an apartment which clearly states that it is aimed at the guests traveling on a budget and does not have a fully complete kitchen. Upon arrival this guest found fault with everything! I do agree that there was a problem the first night with a fuse not working correctly. We had this fixed the next day and the guest didn’t tell us that there was still a problem. They compiled a list of things they didn’t like with the apartment. Let's start with the beds.. I was questioned whether I would have such beds in my own apartment. Well yes, yes we do have the same beds in our own apartment, we actually also have the same type bed in 80% of our apartments. Regarding the size, a standard double bed is 135cm wide, this is according to my knowledge and a quick check on wikipedia. No windows in the rooms.. This is factually incorrect. One of the rooms does have a window in to the living room, which in turn has a large window opening to the street, so whilst its not the brightest of rooms, there is a window. I did a quick double check yesterday and all windows are present and correct in all rooms. The Sofas.. Whilst not the newest, the covers where washed in October and we have throws over them. The issue you seemed to have with the bathroom was an area where we had a boiler and cupboard removed and rather than re-tiled we plastered and painted the wall. The guest also re-arranged the apartment furniture, and not on a small scale either. The dinning room furniture was moved to another room, a couch was moved from one end of the apartment to another and double beds and twin beds swapped around between rooms. They did not ask if they could move all the furniture around and then we were quite shocked when they left without putting it back the way it was!
the appartement of phil and fiona is a beautiful paradis in barcelona! the bright and charming place looks exactly like on the pictures. the kitchen is well equipped, so that we were able to have breeakfast and cook dinner. we loved lo live in this area- it's close from el born (very very nice!), sagrada familia and pl. catalunya. it's very safe, so you can also walk home by night or take a taxi which are cheap.
the most charming thing was the school in the backyard. we felt like 'real' home!
thank you very much to the hosts! phil and fiona took really care, responded quickly and are great hosts.
L'accueil de Phil a été très chaleureux ,il a pris le temps de nous faire visiter l'appartement et de nous donner les instructions nécessaires.Le quartier est sympa avec tous les commerces autour ,d'ailleurs nous avons mangé deux fois au resto-tapas juste en-bas de l'immeuble.Quant à l'appart,on s'est vraiment senti comme à la maison.On retiendra surtout la luminosité de la cuisine et la couleur "blanche" dominante et apaisante.
Het contact met de verhuurders was uitstekend. Het appartement is eenvoudig en erg centraal gelegen en vlakbij een metrostation. Helaas zijn de bedden een ramp en zorgt het drukke verkeer aan de voorzijde niet voor een goede nachtrust. Het schoolplein pal aan de achterkant geeft 's ochtends, 's middags maar ook 's avonds veel lawaai. We hadden veel last van kakkerlakken in het huis. Hiervoor waren wel bestrijdings-doosjes geplaatst.
Thanks again for staying with us. Sorry the city centre was a little noisy for you. As you will see in the review below, the previous guest liked the atmosphere from the school kids at the back of this apartment.
This apartment was fumigated just last week as all of our apartments are every three months. Sadly living in a warm climate and being in the city bugs can be a problem, but we do as much as we can to combat. Aside from closing every window and door, fumigating is the best we can do.
On the bed front, it would have been great if you had of let us know you had broken one of them. We could have then got this fixed during your stay!
As you'll see in all our reviews, we work hard to make sure all out guest have a great time and we are on hand to help out and fix any problems that may arise. But you do have to contact us in order for us to help.
The Barcelona apartment is very large and the front room is wonderfully glamorous. Even before arriving Phil and Fiona sent some very helpful websites and information which greatly improved our stay in Barcelona. Their associate met us to let us in the apartment and was very friendly and helpful, she gave us some great restaurant recommendations.
The kitchen looks out on a school yard and it was fun to see the children playing during the day. The apartment was very clean and well suited for our stay. The shower was huge! And it was nice to have the lift for our suitcases.
Pictures were accurate, loved the tiles and paintings on the wall.
Also enjoyed the sounds coming from the school nearby. It was a nice short walk to La Sagrada and also enjoyed the restaurant a few steps away.
I stayed with 2 other friends in Barcelona for a few days and we had a great time in the apartment.
The place is very spacious, charming and clean. It is located in a quiet neighborhood that is not too far from the old town (a 15 min walk).
Phil and Fiona were very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely stay there again.
