Javier was very kind to let us leave our bags in the apartment as our flight was in the afternoon.
The place was exactly as shown, big and spacious. The apartment was just off the main road, few steps away from Rocafort Metro.
Most importantly, it's clean, affordable and near central area. If I really have to nit pick about the apartment, the wifi is abit slow and one of the bathrooms is abit small. Other than that, I have no issues and had a wonderful experience staying there.
Would definitely recommend this place.
Some basic info on us:
We are a couple with three children ages 4 to 12, we stayed at C2 for 7 nights.
We booked the apartment about a week and a half before travel and had made a mistake in the booking.
Javier and his brother were very helpful in solving our booking problem and we were off to a good start that turned into a great stay (spoiler, right…?).
From the get go they were very responsive, helpful and accurate for which they had earned our trust. That is not easy when you travel a lot as I do.
Once we landed, though it was very late at night, Javier was in touch with us and coordinated our arrival at the apartment where he greeted us and provided the keys and helpful info about the apartment and surroundings.
The building is family owned and operated by Javier and his brother and that is evident also by the good form it is kept in.
The location is also great as it is about 60 meters from an L1 station and a block-and-a-half away from a large and inexpensive supermarket.
The apartment faces the inside courtyard which is a calm green garden. It is in very good condition and well cleaned, my wife is very sensitive to this and she was pleasantly surprised. Well done!
The kitchen is fully equipped and everything worked (washer/dryer included). There are blinds on the windows that make the apartment completely dark in the morning so you are able to sleep in late.
Each floor has its own WiFi access point, ours was a little choppy but we managed to connect the one from the floor above and the signal is available almost everywhere in the apartment. We did not complain as it was enough for us and we also had unlimited mobile data from the local carrier.
We read somewhere that people complained about noise from the geriatric center below, we did not notice anything and they keep private.
Most of our communications with Javier were through text and email and it worked well. There is a doorman downstairs whom we saw once, I believe it was because we tended to leave early and we came back in the late evenings.
Since our flight back home was late at night, during check-in we asked for a late check-out. Javier told us that it would be no problem if the apartment is not booked for the date of our check-out.
Being a skeptic I was a bit worried but Javier kept his promise and in fact allowed us to stay until 18:30. That was a real valuable service, especially with the kids and it allowed us to have another full day in beautiful Barcelona and bath the kids before departing. Special thank you for this.
All in all we had a great time and would obviously come back and recommend that apartment and the associated experience to our friends.
Thank you for the experience!
We had a great experience staying at Javier's flat. It is in a great location, right next to Rocafort metro station, well appointed and quiet. Javier was a great host, arranged to meet us on arrival at a time convenient to us and also organised a late checkout. Thanks for a great stay.
Nice neighborhood, great location and clean house. We had someone waiting for us on time of arrived.
Third bedroom is really small I think this house should be for 5 people not six.
Javier is a good host and I would recommend him to anyone.
Enjoyed our stay. Good communication from Javier; representative (colleague?) of Javier's met us at the agreed time. Apartment was clean, well equipped and everything working. As expected and advertised. Neighbourhood was as expected too: residential, safe, quiet, good access to metro, bus routes, etc. Thanks again.
El apartamento es cómodo, bien equipado, posee una ubicación y conexión privilegiada (metro, taxi, bus).
