  • Sergio was a great host. Greeted us on the day with a lot of great info on places to eat and see. The flat suited us perfectly. A chilled bottle of Cava waiting for us, and a Nespresso machine for morning coffees. Beds were comfortable, and the flat was clean and in top shape. Highly recommended.

  • The apartment looks exactly the same as in the pic. It is cozy, clean and really close by to the la ramblas! It can be a bit noisy at night but it is fine after we closed the window.
    Sergio greeted us on the first day and provided us lots of useful information that we are really grateful. And the surprise is a bottle of cava!
    We certainly recommend this apartment!

  • Sono appena tornata da Barcellona dove ho soggiornato 3 notti da Sergio con le mie amche.
    L appartamento e' piccolo ma pulito ed ordinato e Sergio e' un ottimo (website hidden) ha consigliato come muoverci in citta' e quali fossero le zone piu o meno sicuro.
    E' vero, sotto casa ci sono le.prostitute e all inizio puo' essere uno shock, ma e' veramente sicuro e nn dicono nulla ai turisti.
    Noi eravamo 3 ragazze e rientravamo la sera da sole tranquillamente.
    Consiglio quest' appartamento a tutti sia per la posizione sia per l ordine e la pulizia. L unica cosa da aggiungere sarebbe uno specchio in piu',essendo 3 ragazze avrebbe fatto comodo ma e' proprio una piccolezza.

  • This our first time using AIRBNB but definitely not the last, It was a great experience, the house was very clean and in a good condition, located at the center of Barcelona 3 minutes from La Ramblas street. Sergio was great and was willing to answer any question of us and was always available since the minute we registered and until the minute we left.

  • We spent 4 days wonderful. The department is very well located and had everything we needed. It was very clean. We have always had hot water.
    Sergio has received us very well and he has always been very available.
    We appreciated the welcome bottle of Cava offered by Sergio.

    Thanks a lot Sergio for everything and we hope to visit Barcelona with our daughter soon.

    Response from Sergio:

    Very glad you were able to enjoy your short visit to Barcelona and the Raval, yes having a clean place and good communication are of utmost importance to us. Also we like our guest to have a taste of Cataluña by enjoying a bottle of local cava. Best, Sergio

  • Sergio was very communicative and a great host! The apartment has 2 beds in 2 rooms which was nice since my friend and I each had privacy. The rooms are separated by partition not a full wall (so you can hear everything).

    The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a walk up. Felt very secure since the building itself is entered via a key, and the apartment unit also via lock & key. The apt is located within short walking distance to Las Ramblas which was super convenient! Walking distance to the park where the airport buses stop (also super convenient). Very close to La Boqueria so you can go and get fresh food every day from the market. Washer (we didn't use), towels, kitchen stuff, tv, refrigerator are all at your disposal. Very clean overall. Location is the best part about Sergio's apt!

    This apt is located in a seedy neighborhood with bars below the building (which makes for super noisy nights if you're sensitive to noise at bedtime). We stayed for weds/thurs night and it was lively. All part of the Barcelona charm. Makes for very interesting people-watching from the balcony. Also, the hot water heater is a bit tricky so make sure to get complete instructions from host, otherwise you may end up taking cold showers like we did.

    Overall a good stay and I would recommend.

    Response from Sergio:

    Hi Herra glad you had a good time in Barcelona and we do appreciate your comments. Yes Barcelona and the Raval is are lively areas of town. Hence when staying in the center of town you will have city noise and the nice vibe of the mediterranean city and the locals. Regarding the hot water nobody had any problems before with it, again it is more than anything else part of the experience in traveling (water pressure in Europe is not as strong as it is in the US). Furthermore there was no reason for you to take cold showers as everything was working perfectly but again was merely a cultural thing and different devices being used as it is an old turn of the century restored building with very thin pipes. Again that is the charm of staying in an apartment and learn about the local customs. Best, Sergio

  • The apt is well located for sight seeing around town. (From the Liceu metro stop look for "American Soda" restaurant, then go down this street a couple of blocks then turn right onto C. de Rob.).Sergio is a pleasant host who provided some good local dining suggestions. The only drawback was the apt was a 4th floor walk-up (no elevator), such that next time my friend might think twice about over packing! Overall, Barcelona is a fantastic city with a many wonderful things to see and do. The apt. allows you to feel as if you are a temporary resident in this exciting metropolis.

    Hi Ilse, glad you made it safe home and with all your luggage. Sometimes people do not read the full description of the apartment and yes the Raval is a charm area with old buildings hence no elevator (as we mention in our description of the apartment). We are glad you enjoyed some of our local eateries in the area and our recommendations for sightseeing. Yes one thing that the Raval has going for it is the feeling that you are inmerse in a local neighbourhood and allows you to feel the REAL Barcelona.

    Best, Sergio

  • Sergios apartment looks exactly like it does in the pictures! He is extremely friendly, helpful and also leaves a lovely champagne bottle in the fridge! The location is great as everything is in walking distance. The area 'La Ramblas' may look run down and not safe but no one will bother you here; so no need to be worried. The apartment itself is nice, it gets fairly cold at night so make sure you bring extra night wear. Also the bathroom is constantly freezing and the hot water does not get fairly hot. Apart from that you will have a great stay and enjoy Barcelona :)

    Response from Sergio:

    HI Anil thanks for your comments. As you well know there are heaters in the apartment which you used. Regarding the hot water the apartment has continuos running hot water (no matter how many are taking a shower you always get HOT water). I beg then to disagree with your comments as yes the apartment is cozy and has enough heating and hot water and the issued with the heater were problems generated by not being well used and hence broken by you during your stay. Best, Sergio

About
BONITO PISO EXTERIOR CON MUCHA LUZ Y SOL Y CON BALCON A LA CALLE. Os espero! We like to travel so much, we always find a new place to to find in the world. I think meeting new people and new cultures is a great way to learn in life. I like open people who respect thoughts and feelings of other people. I learn you get more from helping other people when they have needs. I have a great experience since I start with Airbnb, most of the people I meet are very nice and friendly. They help me to improve my place and keep it the best we can so you can enjoy this beautiful city: Barcelona
