The host was extremely rude and yelled at us when we tried to contact her when we arrived late due to car trouble. We were so uncomfortable that we started looking into alternative stays just to avoid dealing with her. The friend she sent to give us the keys, however, was kind and understanding. He was the only reason we agreed to stay at the apartment.
As for the apartment itself, it was dingy but livable. The pictures are a bit misleading. The location is good but not somewhere you want to bring children through at night.
All in all, my family's experience with this listing has caused us to discontinue our use of Airbnb.
Bon accueil de Ibilola. Appartement basique (tel que decrit) mais très central.
We were welcomed and shown around with efficiency and a lovely manner. The apartment is simple and spacious. We loved to sit in front of the open doors of the balcony, overlooking the street and absorbing the fantastic atmosphere in the quarter. We had a drink on the roof terrace one evening and marvelled at Barcelona's night sky.
We found our stay in this apartment very pleasant. The street is noisy albeit small, but it was no surprise for the location. Well, actually you can hear what the whole building is doing :) The balconies were great, too. Never had a chance to check out the terrace. Overall, I would recommend this apartment to anyone who's looking to spend a good time in the old part of Barcelona.
The apartment suited us well. Its a great location and you can immerse yourself in the gothic quarter. Everything went very smoothly even though I hadn't properly the arrival time notes Ibilola made arrangements to let us in.
The gentleman who gave us the keys was very helpful, and thoroughly explained the rules regarding noise etc. We were surprised that there are such strict noise rules when there is a lot of noise from the street below, but I understand the need to respect other residents. The hosts were really flexible on arrival times when our baggage was delayed at the airport.
The apartment was a significantly more run down than it appears in the pictures, although it was clean and tidy. There was only one fan for the three rooms, and the flat gets very hot as it doesn't have air con, but I guess that just encouraged us to explore the city more.
Location is excellent, very central in the Gothic Quarter with good access to the bars and shops nearby. Access to the apartment is up a lot of steep stairs, which was no trouble for us but is worth mentioning.
The apartment is in a great area of bcn and I really appreciated the flexibility of the arrival times and letting us leave our bags beyond the check out times.
I was however surprised to hear upon arrival of having to sign a contract asking our party of 4 to pay a substantial amount should we be too noisy. I felt this was unnecessary considering I had paid a deposit through air bnb and found this approach very heavy handed.
I never expected air conditioning but I think it is completely unreasonable to provide just 1 fan in an apartment that sleeps 6 people in a hot European city.
The flat was not clean enough and the floors were dirty. For example, if you put your towel down on the floor after a shower, it was filthy.
I also made the aware we were a party of 4. Only 3 small towels were provided and 1 hand towel.
Overall the apartment had a feeling of shabbiness and was very run down.
Victoria, you missed the truth. You paid no money to me at arrival and you was not asked to pay. You was asked and adviced not to make noise. Because you can be fined by police, if the party in the apartment as you planned. Yes l made you to agreed with the terms and conditions.
I see it unfare to you the bath towel giving to you on the floor instead of mat!
The house get dirty with the use. You walks street around, beach, thrown drinks on the floor. And you did not clean. So what do you expect Victoria ?
