Desafortunadamente no conocimos a Jessy, pero nos recibio un chico que vive en el departamento ya desde hace algunos meses. El lugar es muy central y muy facil de encontrar. El metro cerca e incluso la Fuente Magica. Lo unico que lamentamos fue no poder usar nuestra Moka para hacernos el cafe ya que el utilizo del aparato de cocina esta prohibido para los huespedes. Sin embargo, con mi novia disfrutamos mucho de la estadia en Barcelona.
La habitación estaba bien con todo los servicios y no encontramos problemas para llegar aunque reservamos tarde y llegamos tarde. Lo recomiendo.
I would like to make a detailed and honest account of our stay in the double room in Jessy's flat.
Firstly, I'd like to say that we never met Jessy but she was very prompt in responding to our questions prior to the booking. My friend and I were arriving very late at night (our flight landed about 12:00AM and we were at the flat by 1:30AM). Jessy assured us in advance that it wouldn't be a problem and indeed it wasn't. We were welcomed by one of the flatmates who took the time to show up the flat, explain the basic rules and even give us a map and some recommendations as to where to go in the next days.
- Bus straight from the airport.
- Very friendly and helpful welcome.
- Great location, very close to two metro stations and a lot of bus lines. Going around was very easy.
- The flat was quite clean, although we didn't use the kitchen at all so I couldn't say about that (the stove and oven are off limits but the rest is ok to use).
- Very nice balcony overlooking the big Gran via street.
- The room itself was extremely disappointing. Very dark and gloomy, not even close to being as bright as in the pictures at any time of the day. The window gives to a wall so no ventilation. It was extremely claustrophobic.
- The bed was very uncomfortable, enough to give me back pains.
- Very noisy apartment building. We could hear the neighbours having very loud sex during the night as well as people talking loudly at all hours of the day and night.
- One positive about the room is that there was enough storage space and it was clean.
- Quite small but clean.
- No ventilation so often smelled bad. It could be a good idea to add some air freshener.
- Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel provided.
- There was a 7-minute limit to the shower but that didn't prove to be a problem at all.
All in all, I would say that Jessy's flat is very nice and well located but the room we were in was terribly disappointing and uncomfortable.
The room is like in the pictures, you choosed the cheaper room. We changed the bed because you say that it was uncomfortable.
There are people living in the building ofcourse there are some sounds, maybe you should choose a house or flat, not sharing the room in the flat if you are sensitive to sounds. In the bathromm we cleaned it good and put the airfreshener.
Très bon accueil malgré notre heure d'arrivée tardive sur les 1h du matin. Chambre qui correspond parfaitement à la photo et au descriptif, sauf pour le petit-déjeuner (nous pensions qu'il était inclus mais n'avons rien vu dans la cuisine). Emplacement idéal en plein coeur de Barcelone, à 5 min à pied de la Plaza Catalunya et de l'arrêt de métro Rocafort. Seul bémol : la tête de lit n'est pas rattachée au sommier donc elle est brinquebalante, le matelas est un peu vieux et usé, le sommier en métal fait un peu penser à un lit de camp et couine énormément. Il faudrait penser à le changer. Appartement traditionnel un peu daté mais bien équipé dans l'ensemble.
The apartment was fantastic and in a great location to what we were looking to do. Upon arrival we received s map of the city as well as numerous suggestions and hidden gems for things to do while in Barcelona. Rooms also came with padlock doors which was s bonus. Great value for a great place to stay!
The place is cool! Small room, but just enough for sleepover as that was what we needed. The apartment is neat and cozy. Wifi is solid. We were told that the apartment will be full of people, but we've never met anyone actually.
We didn't really meet Jessy, but she was really responsive to all our requests and organised everything smoothly.
The neighbourhood is really nice. Large streets and open views, close to Placa Espanya.
Jessy and her husband were very accommodating! upon our arrival they were very reachable and flexible about giving us the keys. The room is exactly like the pictures, not very big but enough for two people. The location was just perfect! 2-3 mins walk from any bus/metro/attractions ! The only negative thing I could point out would be the oven that doesn't work, so it's not really practical if you were planning on cooking meals, and they would lock the patio door which prevented us from enjoying the beautiful view and weather from their balcony. Other than that, I strongly recommend staying at Jessy's place!
