  • Overall, it was a very unpleasant experience:
    1) We dealt with three different people throughout the booking/handover process, which was extremely confusing (they were all nice, but it was unclear who was responsible)
    2) After accepting the appartment inititally, Javier sent an email (within 10 minutes) that the appartment I wanted was not available, rather than stating that beforehand. Since the booking had taken place within 1 week of arrival date, I could not cancel, which to me already felt like a huge scam (offering a nice appartment that doesn't exist and upon acceptance of payment, claiming that the appartment is not available due to some conincidence). Despite several emails, messages and calls, I could not get hold of them for 2 days, which obviously increased my anxiety (given that the travel date was 1-2 days away)!!
    3) On the last day before arrival, they suddenly came back witha a new appartment, which was far from being the same quality standard as the one I had initially booked. Given there was no time to look for something else and that I could not get my money back anyway, I accepted.
    4) When I had finally arrive in Barcelona and met up with Javier's colleague to check-in, the check-in papers actually stated a much lower price (EUR 220 vs EUR 330), presumably because the new appartment was of a much lower quality. Unfortunately, in the end they charged me the price for the original appartment anyway and claimed that the other price was a mistake.
    Overall, very very unpleasant experience, especially since this was my first AirBnB experience!

    We wan to offer you a 15% descount in you next visit to Barcelona in some of our properties.

    Our apologies,

  • Javier's place was centrally located in the fashion district, and was in a very busy and metropolitan part of town. Though this allowed us to explore the many neighborhoods easily, the street noise was notable, especially in the late night hours. This apartment is ideal for a group of friends who are wanting to experience a trendy, upbeat and lively neighborhood of Barcelona. Javier was quick to respond to our various requests and was a gracious host. The photographs in the advertisement very well represented the accuracy of the space, and we enjoyed the architecture and style of the apartment, particularly enjoying the high ceilings and the terrace.

  • Javier ha sido un anfitrión excelente, de fácil comunicación y muy atento. El apartamento es increíble (las fotos no mienten), está decorado con muchísimo gusto y extremadamente limpio. La localización no podía ser mejor, prácticamente en Paseo de Gracia, parada de metro a menos de 100m y rodeado de restaurantes, tiendas y zonas de ocio. Además, el trato personal con Javier ha sido óptimo, nos llegamos a conocer un poco e incluso hemos dado una vuelta en moto juntos por Barcelona, muy divertido!
    Recomiendo encarecidamente este apartamento para todo aquel que busque un residencia temporal con estilo, bien situada y a un buen precio (¿No es lo que queremos todos?).
    Gracias Javier

  • My girlfriend and I just had an amazing stay in Javier's apartment. It was extremely clean and very comfortable. The apartment it located close to Gaudi attractions, shopping, restaurants and the subway. It was very in an very convenient location for exploring Barcelona on foot and easily accessible to the multiple subway lines.

    Javier was a great host and provided a book with restuarant recommendations and was extremely helpful with everything we asked about.

    I would highly recommend this apartment, it is in a great location and its great to come back to a wonderful apartment after a full day of exploring the city.

About
Hello!! My name is Javier, and although I'm originally from Girona, I've been living in Barcelona for the past 13 years, so I know the city and its surroundings quite well. Traveling is one of my favourites hobbies. I love getting to know different cultures and people from around the world. I had the chance to visit many countries, either for fun or for professional reasons, since my last job was as a publisher for trade magazines. I started the business of rental apartments because as a tourist, I lived first hand the benefits of living a local experience wherever I go, and I know other people search the same type of authentic vacations. This is how I got into the this business and now I have apartments in the best areas of Barcelona with all the necessary facilities for an affordable price. I invite you to come and discover a different and unique experience of Barcelona and all its beautiful locations and sites! For further details, do not hesitate to contact me. Javier
