I had a great 6 weeks in this apartment. It's centrally located, near La Rambla, but we ended up exploring the surrounding areas that are a little less busy. This place is close to great bakeries such as El Mos, there's a small park nearby which we had a picnic in while sitting on a blanket in the sun. The host, Agos, is very quick to respond and most helpful. The kitchenette means you can prepare meals at home to save a little money. The only downside is a lack of natural light, however I would still recommend staying here as I had such a great experience.
Beau lieu pour passer quelques jours à Barcelone. En hiver, un peu moins conseillé, et surement, nous n'avons pas eu de chance avec le temps parce qu'il faisait froid et peu de lumière donc appartement pas du tout lumineux ! Mais le plus dur, le chauffage manquait (seulement un chauffage d'appoint et un climatiseur qui réchauffait mal) et la douche avec une pression minimale, dur de prendre sa douche dans ces conditions :( Nous n'avons pas vu Agos, et le jour de notre départ, nous avons du porter les valises le matin de l'autre côté du centre de Barcelone, (nous partions le soir) une jeune femme nous a reçu, nous avons laissé les valises et quand nous avons voulu les récupérer à 17h, une autre personne toujours pas Agos, est venu nous ouvrir pour les récupérer. Un peu inconfortable et surtout très impersonnel!!!! Service hôtel mais SANS le service hôtel ! Ce n'est pas ce que nous recherchons sur Airbnb et nous nous sommes trompés! Au delà de ça, c'est surement un appartement parfait dans les beaux jours et pour des voyageurs airbnb qui aiment ne pas rencontrer leur hôte !
Agos was a good host. We had a complication with our stay (we needed to leave because of an issue with our baby and the apartment) and he worked with us to resolve the issue.
Note that this is a company that owns a few flats, so it's not a super personal airbnb experience. Nevertheless, they have a coordinated system (person comes to greet you, cleaning person comes, etc) so there are no surprises.
the neighborhood was the absolute best in the city. Agos's staff was prompt, courteous and did everything possible to accommodate our stay. it is not a 3 star hotel but with reasonable expectations, you will have a wonderful stay.
Appartement très bien situé au centre de la vieille ville de Barcelone. Aucun problème pour le rendez vous. Nous avons eu un problème électrique qui a été solutionné sans délai. L'appartement est situé dans un rue passante mais suffisamment en retrait pour ne pas être inquiété par le bruit. Nous avons pu dormir les fenêtres ouvertes.
Nice apartment in a central location. Important in a city as spread out as Barcelona. Easy checkin and great help with luggage storage at checkout. The neighbours are a little noisy though but if you plan to be out till 2am partying then it should not be a problem
Agos is a great host and really made is best for our stay. We recommend this apartment.
There is the pros and cons of the apartment:
- Best location in central Barcelona, walking distance from many attractions and near a subway station
- Quiet area even if it's in central Barcelona
- Well decorated, comfortable, secure and clean
- We had to wait 30 minutes in front of the building at our arrival on a very busy street
- When we arrived, the apartment was not ready even if we respected our check in time.
- The apartment is really dark and there is only a partial window to the outside. The apartment is not well represented in the pictures.
