Most apartments in the old town are on narrow streets where the light and views are limited. However Ali Bei is a fantastic street. It is completely silent but still in the downtown (no noisy motos). The location is strategic for you to rest silently and and walking distance everywhere, not to miss any attraction of the city. Just in the corner with Carrer Marina, 10 minute walk to the heart of el Born, Gotic, the beach, and 15 min walk to Sagrada familia.
A) GENERAL PRINCIPLE: The apartment is located in the very heart of the downtown, but the building is very quiet, with children and old neighbours living in other apartment. Therefore, the behaviour codes are very strict to preserve the neighbours rest.
For the rest, do as if you are at home.
B) ECONOMIC ASPECTS:
* There is a cleaning fee of 45€.
* There is a cot and a high chair for babies available for the guests who rent the apartment. The cost of this pack is 25 €/week (or fraction of a week) for the combo (cot+high chair). It will be paid in cash upon check in.
* After 6 accomodates, the charge is 10 €/person a day.
* Airbnb will pre-authorize 400€ security deposit on your credit card.. The authorization will be void within 48 hours after the end of your stay so long as the host has not reported any problems.
C) PARTICULAR RULES:
*Have special care whit the elevator of the building.
*Its important you take care of the noise, any complain will be penalized with the deposit, there is families with children and an old lady just across the door, That demands respect about the noise in the stairs if you are late from party at night or early in the morning).
Parties are not allowed at the apartment. The complains will determine the termination of the stay.
*The contact between host-Hosted its very important for me, you can contact me any time of the day about anything that concern you, i will be really happy to help :)

*Guests are welcome to do their laundry at the apartment :). Otherwise, we'll guide you to the nearest laundromat.
Great experience in the apartment! Towels and linen were provided and the air condition was worth gold because of the hot weather. We could even check out later on our departure day. Thanks to Esculapi, Laura and Miki!
Absolutely perfect experience - Esculapi was extremely friendly and had excellent communication throughout the entire process. Her recommendations were great and really helped us out with deciding where to go. The flat itself was exactly as described; it had no trouble accommodating our group of 8. 20 minutes (slow) walk to the beach, with lots of great restaurants by the marina, and close to the metro / supermarkets. Ideal. Would definitely recommend!
Location is good for the beach and easy walk to the ramblas
The building is fairly quiet
The showers were good
We had to move the furniture to make better use of the space
The balconies seem a little unsafe
The air con in the bedroom leaks on to the floor
The front bedrooms have no furniture except for beds
There are no tea towels or a kettle
Extra hand towels would have been nice
There are not many glasses for a flat that accommodates 8
We were a group of 8 and stayed there for 3 nights. Our communication went very smooth right from the start. They offered us two set of keys as we were a big group. I haven't met Esculapi, instead I met her boyfriend Makki who greeted us on arrival. The house is very nice and perfect for 6-8 people, with all the needs for your stay. The location is close to a metro station and 10-15mins walk to sagrada familia. One downside of the house is that only one bedroom and the living room has air conditioning. So it can be quiet warm during summer. All rooms do have windows but then you have to wake up with the traffic noise the next morning. If they place small fans/cooler in the house this should solve the problem.
I recommend this place for a larger group. We all enjoyed our stay. Thank you for hosting us.
It was ok. Probably not worth the money. Property could have been cleaner. It was not exactly luxury as described in the listing. We were not able to use one of the toilets as it was a pump one. We were instructed not to put toilet paper down this toilet but to put it in a bin. This is not satisfactory so we did not use this toilet. Therefore not two toilets available. Kitchen was not clean and the utensils also not clean.
De verhuurder heeft prettig contact gehouden toen we erg laat aankwamen.
Heeft ons opgewacht bij de metro om ons naar het appartement te begeleiden.

About the Host, Esculapi
I was born and grew up in Barcelona and, after living in several European countries for a few years, came back to this town. Maybe because I became sure it is the one that fits best for me.
I hope to be able to host you and you to discover the city, at least for a few days.
These apartments are in what I consider the best locations in town to provide you with the best Barcelona experience. These apartments were picked in the most quiet and peaceful downtown spots, walking distance to the main attractions and happenings in the city.
Hope that if this is your choice, it will satisfy you.
See you around!
