It is not about listing and endless set of rules, basically my philosophy about the house is letting my guests using their common sense, being respectful, treating others as you like being treated and on top of that making the people staying here comfortable and helping them to make the most of their stay with me. My priority is always the comfort and wellbeing of my guests and I will go out of my way to achieve that goal.
You will be given a set of keys after the check in process, giving you complete freedom to go in and out at your will.
From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 1 night.
Xavier nos dio mucha información nada más llegar, incluso de zonas cerca de su casa para aparcar gratis el coche. El barrio es excelente, pleno centro, el Born. Se va andando a la plaza de Cataluña en 10 minutos. La casa está bien, la habitación muy cómoda y la cama buena. Aunque está en pleno centro, no hay ruido para dormir. Muy recomendable.
Xavier's apartment is beautiful and in an ideal location for exploring the city. He was very accommodating and helpful in his neighborhood recommendations. Both the room and bed are very comfortable, and there were no issues with the shared bathroom. Definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Barcelona!
Very nice neighbourhood to visit Barcelona!!
Xavier's house is in the centre of the small city streets but when inside, the appartment is really quit and relaxed. Nice and clean bedroom. The bathroom has to be shared with other guests that was totally fine for us. There is a small rooftop terrace, a perfect spot to start your day with a cup of tea in the sun... We would definitely recommend a stay at Xaviers' place!
Perfect location! Lots of cool tapas bars and shops around and also close to a metro station. Very quiet, tranquil apartment and always clean and tidy. Xavier was a great host!
Accueil très agréable du ZEN et discret Xavier, appartement près de tout et loin de rien. Déco de très bon goût au 3eme étage (accès assez physique ;-) via un escalier rustique étroit), situé dans une petite rue vivante la journée du vieux Barcelone à quelques mètres du musée Picasso.
Le petit plus, l'accès à la terrasse au 5eme pour une petite bronzette, un apéro ou...
A coup sûr , nous y retournerons!

I had a fantastic stay in Barcelona. The location was perfect. I was within walking distance to many major attractions and public transportation. The room was large and the bed was comfortable.
Beautiful apartment, the best neighborhood, very kind host, comfortable bed. What more could you ask for? :)
