  • This apartment was basic. There was comfortable bedding and clean towels. The kitchen was very sparse. The bathroom was very small with no separate shower, which meant the floor was always wet. The lack of natural light was unusual. There was no hot water at first, but when we contacted the host they came and turned it on promptly. The wifi was fast but no cell coverage. The first floor accommodation was nice. They offered to store our luggage the last day (which we accepted), but it was not a secure storage.

    Response from Ibilola:

    No reason she can say storage not secure. She kept her luggage and nothing happened to it. No one ever lost anything in my storage!

  • Ibolila's place was just what we needed for our 2 night stay in Barcelona! It was easy to get in contact with her and get squared away in the place. It's in a happenin part of town. We had a great time getting lost in those historic alleyways. Make sure to rent some bikes down the street!

  • Really nice apartment, like the pictures. Ibilola is really fun and responsive! We told her our 3 months old daughter was with us and there was a crib in the apartment when we arrived! Two small downsides: there is no basics ingredients to cook like oil and sugar. Second one is that there is no window to the outside. We knew it, but we realized it was tougher to adjust to Barcelona time (we’re from Canada) without natural light. Although the taxi ride is supposed to be around 25 Euros from the airport to the apartment, we were charged an extra 13 Euros for 2 backpacks, 1 luggage and 2 handbags and a stroller… As the metro is really easy and well adapted to handicap people (there are elevators almost in each station), if we would have to do it again, we would use the metro. In all cases, you need to walk about 4 minutes to get to the apartment, as all streets around are pedestrian, so taxi doesn’t bring you nearer than the metro. The first day was really humid, so we wrote her a message on AirBNB and 30 minutes later, her colleague was knocking on the door to help us is the dehumidifier. We would clearly rent this apartment again or an apartment that Ibilola is taking care of.

  • Appartement propre, conforme à la description.
    Je n'ai pas vu Ibilola mais un ami était là, disponible et très agréable.

    Cet appartement a les avantages et les inconvénients des vieilles villes :
    Pas de lumière naturelle, salle de bain petite, bruits de la rue mais une position idéale, du charme et assez bien équipée !

    A quelques pas des Ramblas et de la plaza Reial, des commerces et du metro.

    Mes enfants, ma femme et moi ont passé un très bon séjour pour notre première expérience sur airBnb.

    Thanks for all Ibilola !

  • Amazing location, we found that all the bars and restaurants we enjoyed the most we're within 5 minutes walk. It's really easy to get to the area on the metro. We were able to cook, with a fully equipped kitchen. There's unfortunately very little natural light coming into the apartment wichu can be disorienting during the day, but it made it easier for an afternoon siesta. When we arrived we had a bit of a problem connecting to the wifi but Ibilola quickly got back to us with a solution. Great location, basic but comfortable apartment and good communication with the host.

  • We stayed at the apartment for four days and really liked the apartment. It was clean, comfortable and had GREAT location. In spite of it being so close to the center of activities, it was very quiet. This was partly due to the fact that there were no windows to the outside. It 's a great apartment for an experienced, self sufficient traveler, as we only met Ibilola once when we arrived.

  • El piso esta bien situado, pero no tiene apertura ninguna sobre el exterior !
    ... una làstima que no lo hayan precisado, porque no ha llegado a altura de nuestras esperanzas para nada... decepcion !

    Response from Ibilola:

    Decepcionada porque no es exterior y que no se puede fumar dentro ?!
    Leer la descripción, gracias :)
