Hope you'll have a great time in our apartment. Please, take care of it and please no smoking in the flat.
Very nice apartment and comfortable. I love this neighborhood near montjuic, and there are many good restaurants and cafes nearby (cometa is really cool). Taras was very friendly and helpful too.
Tarás is perhaps the best Air BnB host I've had the pleasure to deal with. He always responded quickly to my messages, and made himself incredibly approachable during my stay. He provided fabulous recommendations and was keen to make sure everything was going well while I was there!
The apartment itself was also perfect! It is in a great location-close to a large variety of local restaurants, bars and shops, as well as a metro station-not that you really need it, as la rambla is only a short walk away! Touristic sites are easily accessible, but the neighbourhood has a very local Catalan feel. Perfect if you want to visit tourist sites but stay somewhere with a more genuine atmosphere.
The apartment is clean, modern, and fully equipped for a long or short stay! There is nowhere else you should stay in Barcelona! When I come back next, I'll be booking with Tarás again 100%!!
Taras was a fantastic host, very personable and kind. He met me at the apt and gave me some mapped out suggestions of places to eat. He was extremely helpful with local knowledge of where to go and what to do. His apartment is on the trendiest street in Barcelona! All the new coffee shops and restaurants are within a couple blocks which were really fun to try. The apt is very clean, comfortable and spacious with newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms. It was nice to have access to the balcony in the afternoon when the light hits the apartment, otherwise it was dark and quiet most of the time. Slept very well with no distractions, what more could you want. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Taras!
Taras was there to welcome us when we arrived and spent time explaining how everything in the apartment worked as well as informing us about the area (and left a book with info too). He also very kindly gave us a lovely bottle of wine and welcome gift which was unexpected and a really nice touch. He sent us a text the next day to check we were happy with everything too. The apartment was amazing, lovely and modern and very comfortable, great air con too. It is in a lovely neighbourhood with lots of great places to eat and bars very close by, literally a few steps or a short walk along the road. The Poble Sec metro is just around the corner and you can get to Las Ramblas in 3 stops, couldn't be better. Overall can thoroughly recommend this apartment and Taras is a great host.
I'm just back from staying at Taras's apartment with a friend. Taras was a friendly & welcoming host who communicated well with us beforehand to make sure our arrival plans went smoothly, which they did. The apartment was perfect for us and was in an ideal place to walk to popular areas/sites in Barcelona, the beautiful gardens at Mountjuic are a short walk away. But the best thing about the apartment is the neighbourhood it's in......the apartment is in a quiet street, yet there are plenty of fantastic, reasonably priced eating places/bars & small shops on the doorstep, lovely small boutiques, etc, it has a real 'local' feel & vibrancy, there are none of the hectic tourist crowds that you experience around the main, popular areas. This neighbourhood is a relaxed area to explore at any time of the day or evenings.
