  • First, the flat has a great location. Barcelona is very accessible from the flat, putting all the major tourist sites, the beach and lots of restaurants at your disposal. Next, the flat itself is very nice! It has a great view over looking Barcelona and comes with a small kitchenette. Lastly, Francesco is an awesome host. He made sure to provide lots of great recommendations on bars, restaurants, and city attractions. He also was very accessible and responsive during our stay. All in all, this is the perfect place for small groups visiting Barcelona!

  • We had a great time at Francescos appartment. It is perfect for two travellers, we even had enough space for our little baby. Francesco (email hidden), very helpful in any situation. He even arranged for a baby bed on short notice (thanks again!). He gave us a very warm welcome and we felt right at home from the start :-)

    The appartment is in the top floor of an apprtment building. There is a small elevator going to the floor beneath - you walk up only one stair to the appartment door. The terrace is wonderful!!! Great view and really large. You can even see the Sagrada Familia Church.

    Everything was in working order and very clean. Beds are ok. There is some noise from the streets, but not much (Ambulance Siren), since it is on the 7th floor.

    The location is very good - it is located next to the city park. Beach, City center, Ramblas etc. - everything is in walking distance. Or you cn take buses or trains, the stations are round the corner.

    There are supermarkets around (ie. LIDL is across the street). We used the small "kitchen in a closet". Although it is small, it was fine for us. At the corner is a small bakery with very good cafe con leche :-)

    We definately recommend this lovely appartment to any travellers. It is perfect for some days or a week in Barcelona!

    Thanks again Francesco for a great time!

  • Francesco's apartment was perfect for our last day and night in Barcelona. It is a small studio for 4 people but the wonderful top floor balcony/terrace is truly fantastic. My sons enjoyed laying out in the sun by day and my husband and I enjoyed the beautiful panoramic day and night views. The apartment looks exactly like the photos on Airbnb. Francesco and Isaac were very responsive and kind hosts. It is a very clean and modern decor. As mentioned by a prior reviewer, if you are looking to cook big meals, it is a small kitchenette in a closet. However, it worked well for us as we prefer to eat out but have breakfast and snacks in. We highly recommend Francesco and his place, thank you Francesco!

  • That was a true pleasure staying at Francesco's place. He is a really great host with a lot of tips to enjoy Barcelona life. Available any time you need.

    The apartment was really nice, completely what we expected, spotless, with a massive terrace. We cannot expect something better. For sure, we will be back and will advise this place to our friends :-D

  • Francesco's flat has an amazing view! Have to say loved the mini kitchen the most!! Taking the taxi to town centre is about 10 mins. He was friendly, helpful, gave us lots of information around the area that he knows about. Would love to stay longer if we haven't paid for our tickets!!!

  • I highly recommend Francesco's apartment. It (email hidden) for Barcelona -- it has a lot of light, great views and is well located in proximity to public transportation, city center and the beaches.

    Francesco (email hidden), he will go out of his way to educate the guests about the city and accommodate their needs. I would not hesitate (email hidden) again.

  • On a vacation to Barcelona, my boyfriend and I stayed at Francesco's beautiful rooftop flat. Everything about the experience was perfect. Booking was fast and communication was clear. Upon arriving, he greeted us, showed us around and gave us tons of information, maps and guides to help us navigate the city. His hospitality was warm, welcoming and he even left us a bottle of bubbly to enjoy our stay. The flat is gorgeous! Everything is brand new. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom modern and clean and the terrace...oh, the terrace. We spent most of our time at the flat out on the terrace enjoying the view of the city with the spires of Sagrata Famillia seemingly within our reach. The flat is situated within walking distance to all the city sights and there are many grocery stores, banks and everything you might need. A taxi to the airport was inexpensive, easy to hale outside and only about 1/2 hour door to door. I highly recommend anyone traveling for work or play to Barcelona to stay at Francesco's flat. Nothing could feel more welcoming or comfortable!

    Francesco was also very helpful and open I will definitely repeat there!
    thanks so much!

Hi! I'm an Italian guy, Business Development Manager with PDM/EMBA. I have been living in Italy and then I moved to Switzerland, to The Netherlands and to Spain. Now I'm back again to Barcelona, for the 2nd time since many years. I travelled as a backpacker in all the 5 continents and I'm multilingual (Italian, Catalan, English, French, Spanish and some German). I'm a biker and I can suggest to other bikers coming to my flat nice routes around Barcelona. I'm used to provide all my guests all the information they may need in order to enjoy Barcelona as much as possible with tips about the city/public transports, maps, events, bars/club/restaurants that I like and other relevant information about possible destinations around Barcelona.
