We stayed at Xavier's apartment for 5 nights. Great central location close to El Born and the Gothic Quarter and a 3 min walk to metro stop. Plenty of eateries, Super markets close by especially the Market of Santa Caterina. Clean and quiet room with a comfortable bed and the rooftop was very nice to enjoy an afternoon drink overlooking Barcelona ropftops! There is an additional guestroom and a narrow set of stairs to reach his floor. Overall would definitely stay again.

Xaviers house is a really nice stay to escape from busy Barcelona. The location couldn't be better and the room was beautiful. Too bad the weather was bad so we couldn't use the rooftop! The house is clean and Xavier was helpful. Gracias Xavier for the nice stay!

Xavier is a great host, easy to reach and V good English. The place is next doors to Picasso Museum in a strict centre location but less noisy than the rest of it. Bedroom and toilet were in good condition, roof top terrace has a great view on Santa Maria del Mar church. Would highly recommend this place. Thanks Xavier!

Practically attached to Picasso Museum, Xavier's home is central to some of the oldest spots in town, trendy shops and hidden bodegas. Easy communication made it a breeze to check in and out.

Xavier's place is at the perfect location. His place is almost 400 years old and well designed. We couldn't stay a lot at the house because of our short holiday but we wish we could've spent more time in the house. As for xavier, we couldn't see him during our stay since he had to work. But he and his firend helped us alot when we need them. If we go back to Barcelona again, we will definitely stay at his house!
