Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • There were 6 of us ladies and one bathroom and we still managed to have a very comfortable stay. It is a great location and very spacious inside. We had all that we needed to cook and the living room was especially relaxing. I will say those stairs were tedious and we were nervous of the foot traffic in the gothic center... but this is Europe what can you expect! Ibilola was very kind and accommodating. Great experience.

    Thank you so much :)

  • This apartment is excellently located right in the middle of a cool part of town. It's large and private, complete with many windows for a nice breezy afternoon. Owners are easy to communicate with and very helpful. I would recommend this space to my friends visiting Barcelona.

    Thanks :)

  • The flat is as described and good value for money. We had a friendly and punctual welcome. The flat is spacious and in a great lively area with easy access to a whole range of restaurants and very close to the famous Ramblas. There was absolutely no noise problem as suggested in previous reviews.

    The only downside was that the wi-fi seemed to work well in the mornings and poorly not at all in the evening. To be fair I didn't contact Ibilola about this so she didn't have the chance to fix it.

    There is an underground parking at about 150 meters from the flat which is expensive as all parking in Barcelona but really useful if you need it.

    This is a budget place and it comes with it's inconveniences but these are mostly in the description made so if you are not prepared to accept these you should be prepared to pay much more for a place less well situated. Personally I found the inconveniences perfectly acceptable but to avoid misunderstandings you should be aware that:
    -you cannot access the flat by car, be prepared to carry your stuff 100 meters.
    -there are 80 steps up to the flat in a narrow staircase.
    -the entrance is in a dimly lit street and the stairway is old and not very clean. There is no security risk but the feable hearted might freak out.

    In conclusion, good value for money, great location, great for most people but not for all.

    Thanks. See you again!!

  • We had a great time in Barcelona, and it was nice to be able to stay in the middle of the Gothic Quarter. Ibilola communicated well, met us promptly, and was very friendly.

  • All was ok.
    the apartment is in a nice area. The furnitures are not all new but the ratio price/quality is very good.
    the apartment was pretty clean

  • Positive : location is very much in the city centre, price good, can stay many people.
    Negative : If you are looking for highstandard living it is not.
    Overall good. Simple living at very low cost.

  • The apartment has a very central location, in the heart of historical and also night life district. Perfect for young travelers. But can be a bit noisy during nights. The apartment is in the 4th floor, and the stairs are difficult to climb. My parents who are in their 50s had difficulty in climbing. Carrying our luggage up and down was also an issue. Consider this as an important warning. Besides, the apartment was not very clean. Any case, it's good for young ppl, has many beds, kitchen is good, place is central, the hosts are helpful.

    Good to read your comment, the apartment was clean, but not to the best.
    I will make sure staff do the best of her duties !!
    To have the apartment noise less the sound proof door of the balcony need to be closed. As described, the apartment is in the fourth floor without elevator, in the old city, the heart of BCN. That why the price is so small considering the area!
    Thank you :)
