i stayed in francesco's flat for three day's and had a great time! the appartment is clean and very nice arranged, there's everything you need, and has a nice terrace to chill-out after a long day in BCN. francesco welcomed us with a bottle of cava and at the check-in, he spend a few minutes with me to inform me exactly about all the interesting things in BCN, the must see's and places to be.
the appartment is well located, with the metro you can go to the citycenter in about 10 minutes, and in the same time you're in the barri gothic by walking.
i would definitely recommend this flat and especially francesco as a host!
We had a great stay at Francesco's apartment. It is located in a central part of Barcelona and makes it quite easy to get/walk to the different places of interest (Sagrada familia, beach etc.). The apartment is located on the very top level of the building (with elevator) and has a great terrace (see Framncesco's pictures), awesome view of the city included! The apartment is very clean, well equipped, and as described. Francesco was a very nice and flexible host, helped us with everything, gave us advice on where all the good and fun places are and even provided a travel guide in German language! Perfect! Bathroom very modern and clean, one separate bedroom and a couch in the living room that offers space for two additional persons...well, very cool place to stay. Try the espresso and the croissants from the bakery just around the corner. My friend and I that stayed at Francesco's place for 3 nights - this way - enjoyed breakfast on the terrace and had the perfect experience in Barcelona!
Una maravilla de piso. Francesco es un anfitrión super antento y no ha dejado ni un solo detalle para que estemos comodos. Altamente recomendable.
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 was a perfect host, 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!
About the Host, Francesco
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'm a biker and I can suggest to other bikers coming to my flat nice routes around Barcelona.
