Wir haben ein Monat in Barcelona verbracht und haben uns in der Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Gastgeberin war sehr sehr nett und freundlich und hat uns jederzeit Ihre Hilfe angeboten.
Das Highlight war sicherlich die nur für uns zugängliche Dachterrasse von der man fast die ganze Stadt sehen kann.
Der einzige Nachteil war das sehr kleine Bad und das Fehlen des Waschbeckens.
Alicia, se comporto muy bien con nosotros, muy buen anfitrion, la ubicación es muy recomendable muy accesible a todo y la vista a la sagrada familia desde la terraza es impresionante.
Très bon accueil ,le logement est propre .
L'immeuble est calme et le quartier bien desservi au niveau des transports.
Il n'y a pas de salle de bains et la douche est vraiment très petite.
La terrasse n'est pas du tout aménagée , elle n'est pas contiguë au studio et donc peu utilisable dommage!...
The studio is indeed very sunny and cosy, though a bit small for two people. However, it has everything you need. Very nice thing is a board with a recommendations from previous guests: you may some useful info about places to go. In my opinion, the main advantage of this appartment is access to the roof! We enjoyed sitting there in the evenings, looking at Sagrada Familia and Barcelona roofs.
Alicia's studio is perfectly located one block away from Sagrada Familia and the metro station! It's a great fit for one person but the fold out bed accommodates two. It was a pleasant surprise to see how much privacy one gets as the studio is on the top/last floor (with lift) and you have the whole roof terrace to yourself...with stunning views of Sagrada Familia and Barcelona rooftops. Wifi worked great and so did the air conditioning unit. There was a ready to use beach bag, umbrella, blow dryer and plenty of closet space/drawers to put your stuff in.
My only concern was that the studio was a bit dusty (cleaning depends on previous guest) and the shower was a tad too small. Nonetheless, I truly enjoyed my stay.
I never met Alicia, however her friend Rafa was waiting for me and thoroughly explained everything. Alicia was prompt in responding to emails and phone calls.
Thanks again, Alicia!
Thanks for your stay Milton.
We do the cleaning after guests do it, but if we open this wiiiiiiide window to let the air ventilate the space, in just few minutes there is a thin dust cover over all the furnishment. I know it , because I lived there for few months before advertising it on Airbnb and I was so desperate with that fact .. I had to put out dust almost every day ;-)
Hope to see you again in Barcelona !!!
We stayed in the apartment a bit longer than a week and it was amazing. Alicia was a lovely host. The flat was simply brilliant. Although small, it is nicely furnished and absolutely cosy. The highlight of the flat is perhaps the AC. After a long hot day at the beach we could hardly wait to get back to the nicely cool apartment.
The apartment is very well situated. It is near the metro station, so you can reach all the sights by public transport. The beach is also only a short metro-ride away. Sagrada Familia is just round the corner. And now comes the most brilliant part: you can see this spectacular church every single day from the terrace. Despite the "touristy" location, the house is very safe and Alicia makes sure that it also stays safe.
There are plenty of nice restaurants just rund the block. You will find Spanish and Italian cuisine, several fast food restaurants and snack bars. There are also nice places where you can get a cold mojito or sangria. If you'd rather cook your own meals, there are plenty of small shops where you can buy your daily essentials, fresh fruits, veggies, or spanish specialities. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need (even a hand blender for making fresh smoothies if you wish).
To sum it up in a nutshell, if you're looking for a great stay in Barcelona and an awesome location, you definitelly should book this flat! I don't think there are many other places with such a great location.
My friend and I were really shocked by this place. We expected to see a cozy studio - but it turned out to be so tiny and cluttered that it was almost impossible to be there. The picture does not reflect the real size of the flat - actually the flat is much much smaller.
There was a smell of cleaning substances in the flat - the cleaning had just been done and the smell was there until the very morning.
The so called bathroom was extremely small - we could not take a shower, besides, the water was not warm enough.The bed sheets had pills on them, etc.
So we decided to leave the flat in the morning and we were not going to stay for the second day (as we planned) - we had to go to the nearest hotel, with our suitcases again.
When I texted Alicia about that she did not answer. Neither did she later in the evening. Or the next day. Alicia did not answer us or call us back. It seemed she just did not care.
So we stayed in a hotel near Sagrada Familia with a beautiful terrace - which was very much different from the so called terrace of the studio (it was very dirty and not so nice as in the photo).
I find this situation very unpleasant. Maybe this flat is ok for some people (and the location is good) - but pictures should reflect the real situation. In reality it is tiny and everything looks like second-hand stuff.
My family and me occupy three units of the building, and it is posted on the apartment wall. Instead of look for us to tell us her complains, or call to my mobile or land phone line (also posted on the apartment wall), or sent to me a message through Airbnb system ( that I would received instantly through the mobile APP), she decided to send to me an SMS, that I never received from her russan number , and left the place.
This apartment is on Airbnb since the begginning of 2012 and has only positive reviews. The photos are real, verifyed and taken from an Airbnb professional. People doulble size than her took their showers there. The studio is not fully furnished brand new for her stay (it was furnished three years ago). This studio has a window more than two meters wide and the terrace is the whole roof terrace of the building.
Definetely, I think Airbnb is not a good option for travelling for her. Hotels suits more her expectatives, as you can read.
I suggest travellers who read Anastasiya post, to read all the other positive reviews from previous Real Airbnb Guests, specially the post from Hajni&Florian who occupied the same studio after Anastasiya.

Me encanta conocer gente de otros países, compartir experiencias y de paso practicar el inglés.
Siempre que puedo participo en cualquier actividad propuesta por Airbnb o los miembros de su comunidad en Barcelona.
Un par de datos más sobre mi: Me encantan los perros y disfruto cantando en mi coro y tocando la guitarra.
