My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at Jose's flat. First of all, it's in a great location. The building is very old, rustic and beautiful. Jose lives at the top, very nice & cosy flat. The room is small, but everything you need with a private bathroom. He also has a great rooftop, where he served us breakfast (including delicious homemade tiramisu!).
Jose was very friendly, greeted us with a big smile and helped with the luggage. Would definitely recommend this place.
Jose was incredibly nice and helpful. He kept in constant contact with us during the check-in process and helped us get oriented in the city (with maps, suggestions, etc.). He was also very accommodating - he let us keep our bags in his apartment after checkout while we still explored the city. Best of all - he prepared a light breakfast for us (tiramisu and more) that was delicious.
The room was as described. Clean and private. The bed was comfortable, and the shower had good water pressure and was clean. We were here in July and the room does get hot - however Jose provided a fan to help alleviate it. You will have to climb six flights of stairs to reach the room (there is no elevator). The outside terrace had a beautiful view and was a nice touch.
Overall, a great experience, and we would stay here again. Would recommend.
Jose was an amazing host! He was very welcoming and gave some tour tips. The location of the flat is good. Only downfall is that you have to walk up to the very top of the building and the room is quite hot. But my overall experience was satisfying
José was a very welcoming and friendly host. He gave us some good advices for new non-popular places in barca and he was always there when we had a question. The appartement was very nice (barca - gotica yeagh!!) and José made us breakfast every morning. We had a great time in barca - thx a lot!!!
This was our 2nd time @ Jose's and we had the same great experience! He's an excellent host!
The apartment is in a great part of town and access to everything you would want to see is easily accessible by foot.
Thank you Jose for another wonderful stay. Maybe we'll see you when you come to Toronto one day!
Jose is great! He's friendly and answered all my questions and helped me whenever I needed. He is personable and so easy to talk to. His home is in a great location, not far from the metro. Barcelona gets very warm and the room gets a little toasty. It's on the top floor but I think the stairs are a good workout!
It was so nice to having lived in this pretty and stylish room where I had even my private bathroom of Jose's appartment. He is so nice and considerate. He has prepared almost all the things I may needed. The appart is located near la Rambla, just like 5 min walk, and 10 mins walk to Place Catalonya, 5 min walk to the seaside. I will consider to choose it again when I come to Barcelona next time.
About the Host, Jose
Llevo 6 años viviendo en Barcelona y me encanta esta ciudad. Su clima, su luz, su mediterraneidad, sus playas en verano, su callejuelas por las que perderse y sus placitas donde tomarte un café.
Soy fotógrafo, así que siempre voy con mi cámara en mano para no perderme ni un detalle de esta ciudad ni de sus gentes.
Me considero una persona tranquila y sociable y me gustaría que todo el que quiera alojarse aquí se sienta como en su casa y se vaya tan encantado de esta ciudad como yo lo estoy de ella.
