  • I spent a really wonderful month in Barcelona in Sandra&Jairo's appartment. I'm very glad that they were so welcoming and let my little baby stay at their place. The room is very sunny and bright, trees are very close and it seems you are somewhere in the countryside not in the center of the city. Place is also perfect to stay with a baby. Quiet residential area with some supermarkets nearby where you can buy everything you need. We also enjoyed Hostafrancs market with lots of tasty things like jamon :). Location is good for sightseeing too, we went everywhere by foot, even Barcelonetta's beach and park Guell. Placa Catalunia is also within one hour walk with a stroller. Highly recommended!

  • This is the second time I have stayed with Sandra and Jairo. Just like last year, I had a wonderful stay. They are friendly and helpful hosts. This was a business trip so I relied on their good wifi and being able to get a good, quite night's sleep in preparation for work the next day.
    Some of my colleagues stayed in more expensive hotels just off La Rambla. They were surprised to hear that I was 'slumbing it' by staying with AirBnb.
    Several of them had been kept awake with street noise at night, and didn't feel safe walking down La Rambla at night.
    I pointed out that my accomodation:
    - was cheaper
    - was in a good safe neighbourhood
    - had all the facilities I needed to work including wifi
    - was cleaner than most hotels
    - guaranteed a good bed and a quiet night's sleep
    - came with an excellent tour guide (Jairo) to help me navigate public transport
    ...They had to they had to concede that staying with Jairo, Sandra and Ana Carolina did sound better than their posh hotel!

    Thanks to Jairo, Sandra and Ana Carolina for making my trip memorable and enjoyable.

  • Thank you a lot for your kind welcome and hospitality. The place is wonderful and calm, sunny and clean room with a cute balcony, close to the metro station. I'd recommend this place for staying if you love children (you will definitely love Anna-Carolina) and looking for some good place for a couple of days. Sandra and Jairo are the best hosts! Thank you

  • This was my first time using airbnb and I was nervous about what it would be like staying with people I didn't know. Sandra and Jairo immediately alleviated any fears I had; they were great hosts who warmly welcomed me into their home. They were helpful in explaining things about the city and giving me suggestions of what to do. Jairo even brought back a map for me one day when he came home so I could find my way around easier. They're very friendly and easy to talk to, and have a sweet little girl, Ana Carolina, who's always happy. The room itself was clean and quiet, the bed was comfortable, and in the mornings the light shines through the tree outside the window and you can hear the birds singing. It was also in a great location, close to the metro and the Sants area. I would definitely stay there again, it made my trip to Barcelona really enjoyable!

  • I have stayed at Jairo and Sandra for 6 weeks. they are extremely friendly and open minded. Very welcoming and caring. They were always happy to share a social moment and exchange events of the day. Their little princess Ana Carolina is just adorable and such a smiling little radiant spirit. I really liked the room. It was very light and with the balcony right there to enjoy some fresh air and hanging up laundry. The only thing I was missing was a luck on my door as there were on the other two bedrooms in the apartment, I wanted to ensure privacy during the day when I was out... so now there is a luck on the door! ;) The room was not so sound proof, but it helped me with silicone earplugs, and everything was fine. We also went on a few trips around town together which was nice because as they live there, they know the City very well. I also got to lent a map over the City and hints of what to see, which was really nice. All in all a really nice stay.

  • Sandra and Jairo are wonderful hosts, kind and patient with their very-tired-guest... The room is cozy and comfortable; its location is very interesting, 'cause is near Sants station and not so far fro Plaza de Espana. Thank you for all and a big kiss to Ana

  • Thank's to Jairo, Sandra and Anna Karolina we had a very nice stay in Barcelona. We get a lot of support from Jairo on where to go and how to get... The flat is nice and clean. The room has a nice view of the acacia tree. If you are lucky - you will hear the voice of green parrots. We could use the kitchen and a sitting room any time. Anna Karolina is a big fun. Very nice and happy kid.
