We had a nice couple of days in Lara's flat. She very kindly came to meet us from the airport bus to help us find the place and check us in. The apartment is as described and pictured, nice and spacious with two good sized double rooms.
The general condition of the place is not pristine but it is very good value for the price, and suits perfectly a younger crowd, which was exactly what we were looking for.
We were here in winter and so did not use the terrace, but this is a great size and would be really lovely in the summer.
Amazing location for a break in barcelona, right in the centre of the old city and a short walk from the ramblas, the beach and the port. However, it's still sheletered enough that is quiet at night, we had no problems being disturbed.
Recommended =) Thanks Lara for a lovely stay!
Good location, right off the main street La Rambla, easy to visit the turistic interesting point, close to everything. Slept 4 people very comfortable, the beds and the pillow are new, very nice to sleep. The terrace and the apartment are recently painted the apartment looks exactly as in the pictures. Lara is very friendly and accomodating person. The day of the check in she came to take us to the bus stop and gave us cool advice about the city. Thanks Lara
Nice, well located apartment in the centre of Barcelona, so close to everything (restaurants, bars and boxes..)
Lara is a very friendly, personable and available... to redo host..
Good location, right off the main street La Rambla. Slept 5 people comfortably. Bathroom door is a bit sticky and hard to open at times, shower drainage is pretty poor. Good if you're in Barcelona for a couple of days and don't plan to spend much time in the apartment except to sleep.
Lara had started on a new job and couldn't meet us when we arrived so her friend let us in.. but she did come after work to see that we were ok. She explained the rules and showed us how to work the washing machine...no problems there.
Location wise, this flat was perfect. So easy to access La Ramblas and the metro stops, and walking distance to most of the places we wanted to go.
we also found that there were some good restaurants on our street and we tried 3 of them.
The place looks a little older and tired than the photos depict.
The big room had a good firm bed but the other room had a softer one that sinks in the middle.
we were given one pillow each...would have been good if there were extra.
we didn't cook so this didn't bother us, but the pots and pans in the kitchen were in a sorry state. they were of the non-stick kind and very well used. Had scratches so some were rusty. most of the pots had no lids. I think they should be replaced.
Other than that, everything worked fine. Like I said, we really loved the location. Shopping in the Gothic area was a wonderful unique experience
Lara's accommodation was comfortable and in a great position. We enjoyed walking around the old town and Gothic Quarter, and it was easy to walk to the metro. Lara met us at the door and we could go in quite early in the morning. The terrace courtyard was nice, and because the apartment is old, some things are looking a bit shabby. However, it was clean and the position was such that I would recommend this apartment.
We had a great stay at Lara's flat, the flat was very clean and decorated nicely. There was ample room for our group of three and the outside terrace was perfect for breakfast and relaxed drinks in the evening.
Lara was an excellent host, arranging a good value and trusted taxi for us, to and from the airport, as well as dropping by upon check-in to meet us and show us round. She was really helpful and approachable if there was anything we needed or to make our stay more comfortable.
The flat is in a perfect location, just off La Rambla, close to bus and metro routes, bars and restaurants and minutes from the sea.
We'd definitely stay again, as the flat is exactly what we needed and a really great deal.
The flat is just in the city centre, 50 mt from Plaza Real behind the Ramblas: VERY GOOD.
Everything was clean: VERY GOOD.
BAD: The flat is not as nice as it looks in the pictures: they are "optimistic" for the lightness, for furniture that is very old, for covers and pillows that are "very used", I would say (definitively it is not the same fashion and coloured apparel that you see in the pictures); one bed has really too soft mattress (sponge made?); also the flat is terribly warm and dryers are not enough in my opinion.
This was a group of 5 boys, I could meet just one of them for the check in... the rest of the group I have never seen. They don't send any message they don't tell me anything. The guy that I meet Luca was really nice, polite and very friendly and at the end of them stay he said thank you. Francesco only complains about everything. My flat is in the historical center of Barcelona in the main street of Gotic and they paid just 19€/night/person... I gave them a whole apartment with 2 rooms, terrace, big bathroom with shower, fully equipped kitchen, big living room, everything funcional and very clean for the same price of a single bed in a hostel with other 10 people inside and bathroom shared with 1 whole floor. Francesco instead to say thanks ... he just write a bad review in airbnb... complaining about everything... fornitures, beds, hot weather, the bedsheet are very used... but Francesco ... why you didn't choose to go to a hotel??? in the hotel you have air conditioning, everything is new also the bedsheet... (the hotel will be 200 €/night/person in this period). In the center of barcelona the houses are all old and the price that I charge doesn't permit me to buy new forniture and new bedsheet often. Sorry francesco if I couldn't buy new bedsheet for you... next time go to an hotel... and remeber to say thanks sometimes...
Thank you, Lara. We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and the apartment was in a perfect location to explore the city.
Overall a great experience in Lara's flat! The place was much more spacious than we expected (judging from the picture) and the location was excellent. Nestled right off the Rambla and close to all the highly rated restaurants in Barcelona. Lara was very accommodating and responsive as well. I would definitely stay here again. Only con that I can think of is the lack of AC in the apartment. But considering the excellent value of this listing and the two portable fans available to cool you off, I think it's worth being a little warm :)
