It's a very nice apartment situated in a very cool part of town. Easily walkable to coolest places like the Born.
The apartment is clean and is a good size, the only problem is the lift was not working when we were staying and given the apartment is on the 6th floor it meant we certainly got our exercise in whilst we were there.
Would certainly stay there again and would recommend to anyone.
I had a lovely time staying in Daiga's wonderful apartment. They were very attentive and helpful, and even though being outside the country Daiga's mother took so good care of me I will be back in a heartbeat! Thank you!!
This apartment is large, completely furnished and in an excellent location. It is in the heart of the gothic quarter within easy walking distance to the Cathedral, the Rambla, two metro stations and tons of shops and restaurants.Our party of six people very much enjoyed our stay! Given this excellent, fun location, the apartment can be noisy (outside conversations filter into the bedrooms throughout the night). The noise did not disturb us, but it is not a quiet place. We were able to use the kitchen to cook breakfast and to hang out together.
The apartment is on the 5th floor, and the elevator in the building was not working during our stay in January 2014. If you cannot climb five flights of stairs, look for another place.
Some tips for (Americans) using the appliances - for the stove, you must place a metal bottom pan on the burner in order to start the heat. To use the dryer, you must empty the water in a part in which the moisture accumulates if it is full. The hot water can be adjusted on the thermostat in the front closet, but we were never able to get the shower in the front bathroom to work. The other shower (attached to the back bedroom) was fine once we reheated the water.
Daiga's apartment is in the absolute perfect location, right off La Rambla. The space is beautiful, spacious and immaculately clean, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. Since it's located on a busy street, it can get pretty noisy at night...but this is Barcelona, who needs sleep?! Just bring some earplugs and enjoy!
I have no words to describle the appartment its so great and my familly feels like at home.
Daiga is so atentive with us and everthing work very well.
Thank you Daiga, we have a happy time in your appartment.
Unfortunately this turned into a very unpleasant experience. The flat itself is fine, no kitchen though, in case that is what you are looking for. However there was some confusion regarding payment due to euro and pound conversion as the host charges an extra Euro 40 for cleaning fees on top of what you are paying with air bnb. Rather than discussing it helpfully the host, Andre, proceeded to rant to us on the phone about how he 'hadn't wanted to let the flat because it was too cheap' etc and then, even when we tried to explain we were merely seeking clarification and had every intention of paying, he still shouted at us, was extremely abusive and hung up. It was left up to us to phone him back after a while to try and sort it out. Very unpleasant, unnecessary and really spoilt our break and not in the air bnb spirit. Having subsequently read more host reviews it seems that this was not an isolated incidence and I regretted not reading them before booking.
Beware! 1) The suite pictured is NOT the one we received & the view pictured was NOT the view we got. The view of the suite pictured is on a higher floor facing the lagoon (pool). Our suite was on a first floor facing a PARKING LOT! Airbnb policy states hosts must provide accurate pictures of where you are staying. This is not the case for this property. 2) You will NOT have access to the lagoon (pool). Again, another detail that was not disclosed to us. When we arrived & the owner's friend Roberto let us into the suite he also gave us a unit # & name to use for access to the lagoon. We thought it was strange but did as we were told & were denied entrance to the lagoon. After speaking with the lagoon personnel, the front desk & finally the property manager at the onsite office we got the TRUTH. Access to the lagoon is only granted to those guests that rent the suites from Playa Blanca Vacations or owners that take the proper actions with management about their guests/renters. We even offered to pay a daily fee for the wristbands we saw everyone wearing to access the lagoon but were told this was not possible. The property manager explained in detail how things work & was surprised this owner did not explain this information to us. 3) When I booked with Daiga, in the description it stated a $ 25 check-in/ cleaning fee due upon arrival. Hours AFTER I booked & received confirmation, she changes it to $50 & sends me a message telling me its $60. When I replied asking her to clarify , she NEVER responded. At check-out, their friend Roberto shows me a receipt for a $50 cleaning fee addressed to me from a site (website hidden). Why was this receipt sent to their friend & NEVER to me & from a site that is not airbnb?? When I spoke on the phone with the owner Andrea ( Daiga's husband), he stated its always been $50. I took a screen shot that proves it was $25 & then changed to $50. I also have the message from Daiga asking for $60. The Playa Blanca offices also let us know they charge $25 for cleaning & $35 if you want toiletries as well. When I spoke with the owner (Daiga's husband) on the phone, all he would do was deflect the blame to Playa Blanca & told me they were the liars. Playa Blanca were NOT the ones to post a listing with false pictures, misleading information & lies. Airbnb suggested I try to obtain a refund from the owners. I don't want a refund or any money back. All I wanted was an accurate listing & truthful hosts. If Daiga and Andrea need to lie this much about their property, they definitely need the money more than we do. It's disappointing Airbnb doesn't hold hosts like these accountable for their deceptive...

Excellent apartment, right in the centre of Barcelona!. I would definately use this place again in the future. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, especially in Plaça Reial which is 20 footsteps away.
Excelente apartamento, ubicación inmejorable, a un par de cuadras de Plaza Catalunya y con buenos servicios disponibles (website hidden) tal cual figura en las fotos, e incluso más acogedor ya que dispone de todo aquello que resulta necesario para los primeros días, con lo cual uno se siente muy a gusto. Muy recomendable!!
