  • We had a great time at Freddy and Alejandro's flat and recommend it for those interested in staying in the Barceloneta area. It is conveniently located being close to the beach, shops, restaurants etc. Thanks to Freddy & Alejandro for such a memorable stay.

  • Freddy and Alejandro could not have been more welcoming- the food, recommendations on shopping and spotless apartment made us feel like valued guests. The location is fantastic- right at the beach but still close to the city. The only downsides were minor- no TV and a musty smell in the bathroom after we ran the AC. Overall, we loved it!

  • We stayed at Freddy & Alejandro's place for a week in May 14, and it was great! Very nice people who made an effort to make us feel at home - thanks :)

    The appartment is situated perfectly if you want to go to the beach.

    The double bed in one room was super, the bunk bed in the other bedroom was less super, but it worked. The shower is tiny, so don't eat to much wonderful tapas while you are there :)

    Alejandro helped us order a taxi for departure and walked me to a cosy restaurant when I arrived alone Sunday evening. Sweet and helpful!

    I will love to come back!

  • Freddy and Alejandro are excellent hosts! My friend and I arrived to a the cutest flat,
    bowl full of fresh fruit and a nice little tour of their favorite places in the neighborhood. We loved staying there. Lively, convenient and cute! Thank you!

  • Freddy and Alejandro are generous, responsible, and knowledgeable hosts who made our stay in Barcelona unforgettably perfect. I highly recommend staying here, whether you are traveling with friends, family, or on a honeymoon.

    The apartment is immaculate; the foam mattress beds and pillows extremely comfortable; the neighborhood is quiet, intimate, friendly, and devoid of tourist traps.

    Freddy and Alejandro also stocked the fridge and pantry with enough food that we couldn't finish it all even after 3 days. Also, when we had trouble with our luggage at the airport, Freddy and Alejandro personally went to the airport, resolved our problems for us, and then even helped ship our errant belongings back to us! You really can't find hosts who are this warm-hearted anywhere else!

    主人热情周到。居所清洁,便利,舒适。给人以宾至如归的感觉。适合深度旅游。

  • We had a wonderful time staying in Freddy and Alejandro's apartment. The apartment is well-equipped, clean and in a great location. The surrounding neighbourhood is lovely to walk around with nice places to eat or buy food and we also loved being so close to the beach. Many other sights/attractions are within walking distance, as well as the metro and bus stops. Freddy and Alejandro are helpful and friendly - they showed us good places to eat and interesting places to visit. Thanks guys!

  • Alejandro nous a accueilli très agréablement. Il a passé du temps à discuter avec nous pour nous montrer l'appartement, nous expliquer où trouver les commerces, plages et restaurants... Une boite avec ce qu'il faut pour le petit déjeuner nous attendait ainsi qu'une bouteille de vin. Un accueil vraiment charmant!
    L'appartement est vraiment idéalement situé dans un quartier très pittoresque et vivant. Les touristes ont l'air d'avoir tendance à rester dans les rues en bord de mère et du coup les rues à l’intérieur du quartier on conservé leur charme et authenticité.
    Pour ce qui est de l'appartement, je suis plus partagée. Il aurait besoin d'un bon rafraîchissement, tout n'est pas très propre (probablement lié à l'humidité du quartier). Par rapport aux photos du descriptif la plupart des meubles ont disparus. il n'y a plus de placards dans la cuisine et plus d'armoires dans les chambres. Donc pas moyen de vider nos valises. Le lit mezzanine est vraiment brinquebalant et des fils électriques à nu pendent du plafond. A éviter avec de jeunes enfants.
    Je suis bien embêtée de devoir dire tout ça car Alejandro était vraiment très accueillant et sympathique... Mais je ne recommande vraiment pas cet appartement.

    Response from Freddy & Alejandro:

    Chère Armelle,
    On regrette que votre perception de notre appartement a été si négatif. On est vraiment surpris, surtout après plus de 50 evaluations positifs de nos locataires précédents.
    Par rapport aux fils électriques à nu pendus du plafond, du point de vu de l'esthétique ils ne sont pas le plus agréable mais biensur ils ne representent aucun risque pour les gens, et encore moins pour les enfants qui devraient cramper pour arriver au plafond et toucher les fils qui n'ont même pas d'electricité! Nous avons déjà reçu des nombreux familles avec des enfants sans le moindre plainte.
    Les photos avec les nouveaux meubles seront disponibles cette semaine. Ils ne correspondent pas aux photos publiés, car nous les avons changé pour faire plus confortable le séjour de nos locataires. Il y a assez d'espace pour laisser les vêtements de vos valises sur les cintres.
    Par rapport au lit mezzanine nous voulons le changer pour une option encore plus confortable, pourtant nous pensons que ce n'est pas du tout dangereux.
    En ce qui concerne le nettoyage, (email hidden) des merveilleux commentaires, quand même on fera bien des efforts pour le maintenir bien propre.
    Merci pour vos commentaires.
    Bien cordialement,
    Freddy y Alejandro

  • An awesome place near the beach? A basket full of delicious food and fruits? Cold beer and champagne on the fridge? Then come to Freddy and Alejandro's place. It is the perfect way to know Barcelona!!!!

  • We loved staying in Barcelona at Freddy and Alejandro's apartment. It was perfectly located, had everything we needed. Freddy was so awesome, he greeted us upon arrival. He gave us a map and guided us to "must see" places in Barcelona. Freddy was really welcoming. made us feel comfortable. The apartment is less than 5 min walk to the beach. It is in an old part of town and the vibe in the neighborhood is great. We would go back in a heartbeat. Book this place, you won't regret it.

About
Hey! We are a well travelled couple, We like to host visitors and make them feel at home. We try to share all the experiences we had in our trips, in order to give our best tips about the neighborhood and the city. We are students (medicine and economy), we love to cook, eat, drink...and many other things. We rent the whole apartment, so you will be alone. The apartments in Barcelona are located few minutes walking from the beach in the charming and pintoresque district of Barceloneta. Very close from the metro, bus stops...with a perfect connection with the main touristic attractions. The apartment in Papudo is located just in front of the beach in a very modern building, next to the woods.
