The listing description was mostly accurate except that it wasn't quite clear where in El Gotic the apartment was located until after we had booked and Ibilola sent us the correct address. This section of the Barri Gotic neighborhood is very party heavy and we were a bit uncomfortable coming back and forth to our apartment at night because of all the very pushy beer salesmen in the street and the vomit on the street outside. However, if you are coming to Barcelona to party, this is the right location. Also, the city of Barcelona cleans the streets nightly so they were always pristine again in the morning when we went out for breakfast. The neighborhood felt safe, but it's not quiet and a few times I had to yell at street salesmen to get them to leave us alone after politely saying no to them several times.
A kind of Drama queen!
Erin said his messages were replied, but not as fast as he wanted. Google map link sent to him was not okay because, l did not state, to let him know that it was close to plaza real !! He was also shocked and a kind of happy to see sex shop, pubs strip shop which he was able to pay one euro to see e.t.c
He used towels given to him. 100 percent cotton. He said he shouted at a man, mind that! It seem he is not used to people, the reason why the previous host cancelled his reservation. FREE YOUR MIND, live and let live!!
Ibilola was very uncomplicated and helped us to find the apartment. On our last day it was no problem to leave our luggage in the apartment although we had to check out by 10 a.m. – we had a flight in the afternoon and some hours left to walk around – better without luggage! Thanks. The apartment was clean, but the big room rather noisy at night. Don’t forget earplugs ;-) The location is very good – we could easily take a walk to Casa Batllò, Casa Milà or to the Beach.
Ibiola was a great host! She was tidying the place up while waiting for my friends and me to arrive--which made the beginning of our first trip to Barcelona very enjoyable.
In addition, the apartment is centrally located in the Barre Gotic district, only a few minutes walk to a lot of attractions and the metro station.
We received good instruction from Ibilola before arriving Barcelona, so it was quite easy to find our way and we feel greateful that she allow us to check in early around 10am.
The location is perfect which surrounded by nice restaurant and very close to La Rambla street.
The only down side that I will say is the flat is a bit disappointed as it seems a bit more basic than its look in the picture.
The apartment was located in a central area that made it very easy to get from one place to another. The host was accommodating, nice, and friendly, especially as our flight arrived rather late in the night. The apartment is spacious as well. We had three people in our group, but it can easily fit 6 people.
