Well, we never met Drasco or Xenia but a nice swedish girl, who showed us around. So we can say nothing bad about the communication - that was perfect.
The apartment itself is small and has 3 bedrooms (4 beds in total) but only one bathroom (small). two of the bedrooms got a wonderfull view over barcelona/barceloneta.
It is really loud and noisy due to the fact that there is a main street just outside the house. And the walls are thin.
Really bad: we had to sleep in a completely cold apartment because the heater didnt work. They tryed to fix it, but it was still cold. After two people taken a shower, there was no warm water left, so the third one had to take a cold shower. In a cold apartment.
The apartment is very good located.
Bottom line: it was okay, but I would not stay there again
The apartment size is 70m2 (around 700 sq ft).
There are TWO bathrooms in the apartment, not one.
We have AC heating + extra heaters in the apartment, so it's hard to believe it was completely cold.
The water heater system in the apartment is electric and it needs time to heat the water when it rans out of it.
It was a fantastic stay. Ksenia and Drasko are very friendly people. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. You have great views over the port and town. In this apartment you will have an unforgettable time in Barcelona.
The flat, although smaller than in the pictures, can comfortably accommodate 4 - 5 people. The elevator, location close to everything, and lovely view are definite advantages. On the not so good side I would mention the bad sewage smell in the kitchen, the very loud two front bedrooms and the fact that I did not get a highchair even if I requested one. All in all, recommended.
Perfect place in Barceloneta, close to the beach and lots of restaurants. Therefore quite noisy at night. Also hot, as AC is only in living room. Very good service and communication with Ksenia and Drasko.
We had a nice holiday in this appartment. Everything was working fine including the comfortable air condition. Really nice view around the harbour.Just a few things we were a little disappointed about were, that we had now basic nutriments like Salt, Pepper, Oil, dischclothes and so on, that we had to buy that all. In the past appartments we always had these things. I know that it is not normally included, but that was the one thing we had better known before. We were three people, so the place was perfect for us, but we asked ourselves how more people can find place in this appartment, because for eating you only have a table for three. In total it was a really nice holiday and appartment.
The apartment has great views and is ideally located in Barceloneta by the Marina. I'd have no hesitation in recommending it.
Great stay - wonderful location and an adorable apartment. Only criticism was that the batteries on the AC control were almost dead so it was difficult to operate, there was no backup supply of toilet paper to be found, an extra set of keys or two would have been helpful and the maid came a few minutes early but gladly waited for us to check out on time. The view is darling. You can easily access the beach, restaurants and tour bus drop offs. You could walk to the La Rambla but taxis are also readily available. We were met on time and given a helpful tour of the apartment as well as suggestions on where to go. There are lovely little places in all of the allies to enjoy for food, drinks or shopping as well. Everything was clear and straightforward and we would gladly recommend this as a place to stay. It's a great apartment in a great location and overall it was an extremely pleasant experience. Cheers!
Great location and a very comfy apartment.
Communication was great during our stay, and hosts have always been responsive and prompt.
We had a nice stay in Ksenia and Drasko's appartement.
The appartement is very well located, near the beach en the center of Barcelona. It was a nice and clean place, and big enough for 5-6 persons. Very nice and gentle people, I can really recommend this place!
Ksenia and Drasko were terrific hosts! The apartment was beautiful and they couldn't have been easier to work with. They both speak good English and will recommend great activities to make the most out of your trip. If this listing is not available during your travel dates, I highly recommend staying in another one of their properties in Barcelona. Hope to see you guys again in the future!
