The stay was very pleasant. The place is located quite centrally, few minutes walk from La Rambla, really easy to find with many very nice bars and restaurants on the street. Laura provided great instructions and a friend of hers met us to give us the keys.
The place was quiet, it was not hot inside, the place is not new, but cozy and has all you may need.
What may be useful for others - the celling is low and the douche is quite small - my husband had to wash himself bended (he is 185 high). But this gave us realistic feeling about the life in Barcelona :)
Location is good. Laura is kind. But there was two bad things. The kitchen was not clean so I didn't want to cook. And the next is important about privacy. When I was in my room and there's nobody in the house, a stranger came into my room without knock or my permission. I was startled and very uncomfortable. (He was a friend of Laura.)
Laura and her family were friendly and welcoming. The apartment is situated perfectly in the midst of everything allowing easy reach of Metro stations, restaurants etc.
Ich hab mich in den 3 Wochen wirklich sehr willkommen gefühlt. Laura & Rash hatten immer ein freundliches Wort für mich. Die Unterkunft war wirklich geräumig und die Terasse wirklich ein Traum. Vielen lieben Dank!
Laura was an excellent host, she took me in very last minute and accommodated me. The location was perfectly in the middle of everything. She gave me space when I needed it. I was a little bad at using her key (my own fault!) and she was very kind about letting me in late after I had been out. Her family is very sweet and she helped me speak a little in Spanish too! I would definitely stay again. Thanks Laura! Jx
Such a beautiful home, in such a great location! It was only about two blocks from the metro. The room was super spacious and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable! Laura's family was super nice and accommodating. Rita, her daughter, was my favorite! This place was super great!
I had a great time in Barcelona, staying in Laura’s and Rashid’s apartment. The apartment is in a great location with easy walking distances to several metro stops, the Plaza de Catalunya and Plaza España, Montjuïc, Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter for example. They are extremely welcoming, kind and open minded family and made me feel very much at home. They are very happy to answer questions about the area and the best way to get to your destination. Many thanks for your hospitality Laura and Rashid.
