Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Spend so nice time in Barcelona in this apartment! You can see Sagrada from your bed and drinking wine sitting on the balcony with a beautiful view. This flat was clean and German was friendly. It is not so noisy because of high floor. You can see ikea-style on foto - it is true: do not dream about luxury apartment but be sure - you'll get so luxury view )

  • El apartamento tiene un precio que no se corresponde con la realidad de los servicios prestados puesto que estos son muy deficientes.
    Las camas están en mal estado y sucias, al igual que el apartamento en general.
    El agua caliente no dura el tiempo suficiente para que una sola persona se duche con normalidad.
    La calefacción son unos radiadores en malas condiciones.
    No dispone de wifi, hecho que se contradice de nuevo con el precio del apartamento.
    Lo único a favor son las vistas del apartamento y su localización.
    Sin duda mi peor experiencia con Airbnb.

    Response from German:

    Picky and very demanding from the beginning, upset b/c wanted to get in earlier than regular schedule, on top of it she was warned about it and the fact that the place had no wifi but still able to get online thru major free city hotspots. Hot water runs for regular showers not intented to be for long showers. All is as stated in the add. Complaints are based on completely inaccurate and ambiguous facts. Price of 70 euro, besides airbnb fee which I am not aware of, for 4 people is 17 euro/ person nite, less than a bed in a dormitory at bcn youth hostal. Doorman, remarkable building from which the views are awesome matches by far price and detailed info posted in the add. Couldnt ever recommend her at all b/c besides it all didnt even drop trash to container downstairs.Thank you. Molesta desde el inicio por no poder entrar a la hora que ella decidió a pesar de estar al corriente de que no se podia, igual que el hecho de no haber wifi a pesar de poderse conectar a traves de redes gratuitas hotspots. Sus críticas, honestamente, están basadas en esas molestias de la huésped, ningún criterio objetivo. El precio es fantástico, otra cosa será la comisión de la agencia pero 70 euros para 4 personas, 17 euros por mitad de una cama en habitación compartida en el youth hostal. ? en bcn, con conserje, ascensor, finca catalogada y una avenida emblemática mas allá de la panorámica desde la terraza están fuera de toda duda. No la podria recomendar. Gracias.

  • Appartement très agréable, tout comme l'hôte. Verdaguer est vraiment en plein entre et le métro (qui donne accès à toute la ville) ne pourrait être plus près. La vue est vraiment extraordinaire et la terrasse très confortable. Rien à redire sur cet appartement à part que ça n'est pas très bien isolé et que l'on ne peut fermer les volets mais ceci n'est vraiment pas grave du tout.

    The flat is absolutely lovely, as the host. Verdaguer is really on the middle Of the city and the subway (wich give access at the all city) couldn't be more close. The view is quite amazing and the terasse really confortable. Nothing bad to say about this flat except that it is not really isolate good and we cannot close the store verry well. But this is being à real pain in the.. Be cause it doesn't matter at all !
    Thalys German, this was a nice trip to Barcelona

  • The room is really fantastic; clean, spacious, comfortable, magnificent view of Sagrada Familia from its window or terrace (nice look in sunrise, and romantic night view under the moon).
    German, the owner, is very supportive and flexible host. He is also friendly and polite. We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona thanks to his support. I really recommend him.

  • A part la vue qui est panoramique sur la ville, cet appartement est en mauvais état. Les lits ont des lattes cassées. Aucune isolation phonique donc très bruyant, il est difficile de trouver le sommeil et on est constamment réveillé durant la nuit à cause du trafic sur l'avenue Diagonal et des personnes qui hurlent sans arrêt !!!
    Je ne reviendrai pas dans cet appartement.

    Response from German:

    Nabti was too picky, since he knew upfront thru info provided that staying in downtown right by the Diagonal Avenue, 5 min walk to the Gaudi's Sagrada Familia Cathedral implies some city noise even tho the apartment is on the 8th floor with double thick glass in the windows. Can't have it all, nice view, staying in the center, have the metro literally at 5 meters from the building and expect the silence from the countryside. Great value for price on top of that. Unfortunately can´t recommend him.

  • Decent tidy cheap place with a good location. Host was very helpful. Would recommend staying there. Thanks German.

  • Three of us stayed in German's apartment for 4 days. Although the apartment is small we had enough room to relax and talk at the end of the day. One in our group is 6"3" and he had to watch the curved roof line. It was not a problem. We wanted to be up where we were. We were not in Barcelona to spend time in an apartment. It was a place to rest and take a shower. The price was good. Quiet so sleep was easy. View was ok.
    We had done some traveling before we arrived so it was nice to have a washing machine. Blow dryer for my hair was a plus, too.
    German sent a nice list of places to eat and some other suggestions that were helpful.
    The lighting was fine in daylight but could have been better for the dark hours.
    German's response and communication with us was prompt and good.
    If you are picky or plan to take a luxury bath, look elsewhere otherwise I think you will have no problems staying here.

  • Great place with Amazing balcony and good location to explore the city. You can reach by walk any point you need also there is a metro station 10 meters from home for lazy asses :)
    German - perfect host. I have no problem with anything.
    Thank you.

  • We just came back from a wonderful sunny week in Barcelona a couple of days ago. We enjoyed everything: the sight-seeing, the beach and of course our appartment. Unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to meet German in person, but he gave us valuable information on directions to the appartment and places to visit in the city via email. He is a very friendly host with fast response times if you have any questions. The appartment itself is just as described - it is a simple but cozy room with great views on Barcelona. It is located very well in the center of the city (Metro stop can be found directly in front of the house) and is therefore a perfect starting point for all sightseeing tours. The appartment is rather small and I wouldn't recommend it for 4 people, but it is perfect for a couple like us to discover the city and to watch the sunsets and beach fireworks from the bed top. The kitchen furniture is very basic, but we didn't plan to use it very often anyway. We had a great time and enjoyed every minute. Thanks again to German for being such a nice host.

  • Плюсы: хорошее местоположение, рядом метро, прекрасный вид с балкона
    Минусы: квартира требует капитального ремонта!!! Мебель и бытовая техника старая, больше похоже на хлам с барахолки!!! В ванной отсутствует крючок для душа, вода нагревается от маленького бойлера, нам на двоих с мужем горячей воды не хватало, холодильник старый, ржавый, с одной шатающейся полкой, микроволновая печь на трех ножках, стиральная машина старше моей бабушки, кровати(их три) давно пора обновить, полотенца от старости сыпятся на глазах, шторы на окнах поломаны, мебель на балконе расшатана(страшно сидеть), мало света, всего 3 потолочные лампочки, одна из которых перегорела, розетками тоже страшно пользоваться, они в удручающем состоянии, нет кондиционера, когда на улице выше 25 градусов, квартира напоминает парник!!! Балкон в апартаментах от соседнего балкона разделяет маленькая перегородка, которую легко пересечь, при этом дверь на балкон не запирается, ценные вещи в квартире было страшно оставить. Входная дверь-кусок фанеры с заедающим замком!! Еще один неприятный момент-это личные вещи предыдущих жильцов, было не очень приятно их обнаружить...окна большие, панорамные, но очень, очень грязные!!!! Занавеска между балконом и комнатой вся в дырах и потертостях!!! В такой дыре мы еще не жили, а нам есть с чем сравнить!!!! Таких денег апартаменты не стоят!!! Ведь люди платят не только за вид с балкона и хорошее место на карте города... Хозяин квартиры очень милый, доброжелательный и внимательный...тем более странно, как у такого хозяина может быть такая ужасная квартира, ведь он так заботится о своих постояльцах...

    Response from German:

    I´d rather would agree with this russian guests comments, staying for quite a few days.
    Not to mention that 68 euro per nite.. for 4 people.. is less than a youth hostal in bcn which costs 30 euro per person in a shared room for 8.
    not agree a bit in all what she says. It is just not fair.
    I always mention from the beginning the good and not so good stuff.. some people will never be happy whetever they are.. that is a life lesson I have learnt. Some would never be happy regardless of what you do.. taking things for granted.. never take into account that the place is located in one of the most expensive districts in BCN with hotels nearby easy over 250 euro nite.

    Guest didn´t speak a word in english.. let her stay longer at no cost.
    she acted weird since she arrived. didn´t take garbagge downstairs as stated, did leave lights on, towels on the floor, didn´t try to make things easy by speaking in russian, so couldn´t understand a word.

    Герман - самый милый хозяин, с которым приходилось общаться, путешествуя с Airbnb. Квартира оказалась такой, как и ожидали, прекрасное европейское жилище, не очень все новое, не очень большое, с терассой и видом на Саграда, море и Агбар башню. Рядом супермаркет, с прекрасными пакистанцами, которые уже на третий день относились к нам как к друзьям, рядом ресторан Эден, Итальянская кухня, самое лучшее место для вечерних тихих поседелок. Если вы ожидаете суперлюкс на крыше дома в центре города - будете разочарованы, потому что апартаменты Германа - выглядят точно как на фото, прекрасная квартира в центре Барселоны без лишних изысков. Мы очень довольны путешествием и общением с Германом.
