My priority is always the comfort and wellbeing of my guests and I will go out of my way to achieve that goal.

If you don't mind stairs, this is a cool apartment in a very convenient neighborhood. The roof deck is a great place for a drink at sunset and the room is very comfortable, although no longer contains a desk as in the pictures. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice place with a lovely room for two. Bathroom in the hall, but that was okay. The place has a beautiful roof terrace

Xavier's place is great. You will not find more central place in Barcelona. It'a perfect. Next to Picasso Museum and near to a lot of places with tapas and vermouth. It'a clean and cosy. Highly recommended to all.

Great accommodation in a central location. No elevator and narrow staircase so best to avoid lugging bulky luggage... Recommended.

Xavier's house was absolutely amazing! The design inside was wonderful and you felt straight at home. There are quite a few stairs to get up to the home but very easy to accomplish and definitely worth it. His house is in the centre of many restraunts, bars and shopping areas. Would definitely reccomend staying there!
