A very nice and welcoming family! Our kids loved playing with little Carolina. The apartment is very close to Montjuic and the airport, so it was a convenient place to stay for our final day in Spain. The room is basic but does have a lot of closet space. There is an elevator, which is convenient when carrying luggage. We could not find suitable street parking (in July) so we parked at a parkade a couple blocks away for €18/day or €14 overnight with 8 am pickup. If you book parking in advance you can save €7.
Stayed here overnight before my flight back to the states, was a perfect stopover - Jairo and Sandra were accommodating and helpful (and Ana Carolina was adorable). Really great neighborhood - perfect location if you're looking for less touristy, more relaxed atmosphere, while being close to train stations and livelier boulevards.
Jairo, Sandra and the lovely Carolina are awesome hosts. We spent a week with them and we felt just like at home. Their apartment is well located and at the same time you will feel safe. I recommend this family to anyone going to Barcelona. We feel like we have another family there and I would definitely go back to them if I will visit Barcelona again.
Sandra and Jairo were very welcoming hosts and their little daughter was very sweet. The apartment was a little different to what we expected from the pictures, and the room a little bit smaller than expected but we really loved having the balcony outside. We found the apartment a little bit far from the centre, however Jairo was very helpful in providing us with information on how to get around Barcelona, and also recommended some nice beaches.
까롤리나 집에서 묵었던 경험은 진짜 특별하고 행복한 경험이었어요! 세심하고 배려 깊은 주인아저씨덕에(아저씨라 부르기엔 너무 젊고 세련되셨지만!) 집에서 열리는 파티에도 참여할 수 있었고, 집을 찾는 데도 전혀 어렵지 않았어요! 스페인 가족의 문화와 삶을 체험해 볼 수 있었고 집은 정말 깨끗하고 편했어요! 정말 추천합니다 절대 후회하지 않으실 거에요!!!
