Ivan was a great host-warm, engaging and very responsive. The apartment is clean with modern fittings and spacious, just as the pictures show. The appliances and wifi worked very well! The original details in the apartment and the building help to make it a great, authentic experience. The location is ideal for enjoying life as a local in a vibrant, beautiful neighborhood. Consell de Cent can be a busy street and periodically noisy, but you're living in town! The rear terrace is great with room for 2 at the table and a wide view of Barcelona apartment living. Great urban vibe! We stayed for 2 weeks and used the apartment as a total living space and so we used the oven, micro, dishwasher, washer, etc. all worked fine! I highly recommend Ivan as a host and his apartment as a wonderful, authentic Barcelona home away from home! I hope to stay, again!
Ivan was the PERFECT host and the apartment was truly incredible! Our flight arrived early in the morning, and he met us at the apartment and let us drop our bags off many hours before check-in. We really appreciated that! Plus, he was always available to answer questions and provide tips -- both prior to our visit and during our stay! The apartment was clean, spacious, well decorated, and in an ideal location. It really felt like home. We had an amazing time in Barcelona, and Ivan and this apartment were a huge part of that. Highly recommended!
Mine will not be different from most of the previous opinions - the flat and the host himself are just great! :)
Huge thanks to Ivan, especially that due to some airport strikes we arrived at the palce at 2 am (!!) - and still he was there to greet us, eagerly helped with the luggage up this awesome-tim-burton-style staircase, had fresh bread waiting for us, just fantastic. A 5***** welcome, thank you Ivan!!
We stayed 4 nights in Ivan's flat. The apartment looks as good as on the pictures. Two nice bedrooms and the view from the balcony was really great. It was clean and tidy so we were fully content.
The stations Urgell (L1) and Universitat (L1,L2) are just a few minutes to walk and in there are a lot of nice restaurants cafes and bars in the neighborhood.
Eine wunderschöne Wohnung, sehr gut gelegen, sehr chic - und die Treppen zum Apartment waren ein guter Work-out.
Iván war sehr zuvorkommend und einladend, trotz unserer etwas verspäteten Ankunft. Auch hat er uns mit vielen Empfehlungen hinsichtlich Restaurants weitergeholfen und war stets schnell und unkompliziert zu erreichen. Jederzeit wieder!
We have just returned from a week at Ivàn's apartment and couldn't have asked for more. My partner and me were joined by my parents. As it was their first experience of AirBnB I was a little apprehensive but I needn't have been.
Our flight arrived in Barcelona at 11am; four hours before check-in time. I knew Ivàn had guests checking out that day and we were prepared to sit in a cafe for a few hours until the apartment was cleaned and ready. However Iván was more than happy for us to leave our luggage at the apartment so we could go explore. When we returned the apartment was spotless, with clean linen and plenty of towels.
The apartment is in a great location surrounded by amazing local restaurants, cafes and bars (both straight and gay), craft beer hangouts, ice cream store, supermarkets, independent food stores. Best of all you hear an abundance of Catalan and Spanish voices, which reminds you that you're not in the tourist traps.
Iván recommended a tapas bar which shouldn't be missed under any circumstances. Simply delicious.
Barcelona is easy to get around on foot, bicycle or metro. We covered miles of the city and couldn't have asked for a better location to be based. You really feel like you are living among locals. And the tourist sites are just a short walk or metro ride away - day or night.
The apartment has all mod cons, a great little kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, washing machine (and line on the balcony), wifi, HD TV, comfortable beds, a powerful shower etc.
Previous reviewers have mentioned the road and stairwell noise this didn't bother us. It's a European city and you get used to it. Besides its mainly a rush hour thing. If you make like the Catalan/Spanish community and go eat late and have a few glasses of wine, by the time you get back to the apartment the traffic has all but disappeared.
Thanks Iván for lending us your apartment and helping to make our stay in Barcelona so much fun.
Ivan was a fantastic host, he was incredibly welcoming and was very helpful on the day we left with letting us keep our bags in the flat so we didn't have to bring them with us when siteseeing.
The area around the flat was brilliant with lots of lovely cafes and restaurants - would recommend "Brunch and Cake" for incredible breakfasts and "Flamant" for lovely dinners at very reasonable prices. And it was a good location to see the rest of the city - either by walking or via public transport.
The flat was a great size for the 4 of us and had all the amenities that we needed. We were very happy with our stay.
