  • We stayed for two weeks in March. This apartment was very comfortable for the two of us and very well appointed. The area that the apartment is in appears a little rough, but we enjoyed being so close to everything. Other than having no view, we would recommend this apartment to anyone. A bread shop 20 yards away, a breakfast place a couple of hundred yards away for good coffee and churros (les 6 portes) and a great restaurant 100 yards away (O"Toxo). We found this a great place to explore Barcelona and found David to be very approachable and helpful. The TV signal is useless in the evening, but having a TV meant that we could watch movies off my tablet if we wanted to. Lovely place.

  • The apartment was very clean and convenient and the location very central. Beds were comfortable and we slept very well despite the street sounds! Kitchen was well equipped for our breakfasts and Wi-Fi was functioning well. The host was helpful and gave good instructions how to arrive from the airport. Check-in/check-out was flexible. All in all, we had a very nice spring vacation in the beautiful city. Thanks David!

  • The apartment is at a very good location, just a few minutes from la Rambla and there are lots of good restaurants and bars nearby. The apartment itself is nice, clean, beds are comfortable and all the handling with David went very smooth.
    In short, we really loved our stay and I would go back there anytime! Highly recommendable!

  • Really fantastic flat to stay when you are travelling in Barcelona!
    David is a nice and cute host that can give answers to all your questions about Barcelona, and he printed you a map marked some great restaurants and other nice places.
    He allowed us to stay late the day we leave because our flight was leaving in the afternoon, which is so considerate!

    The location of flat is perfect: It will only take you 5 minutes to walk to the La Rambla and 10 minutes to the Plaça Catalunya. It is easy to tell the direction when you get here for the first time and you can find many little shops and supermarkets on the way back.

    That’s is one of the coziest flat I have ever stayed in when I travelled in other cities. The interior decoration seems like come from a professional designer and everything is tidy and clean. We love the big bed fixed in the wall up there which is very interesting. You can use the kitchen to cook by yourself if you like because there is everything you need in closets. The books on the shelves are also useful for you to have a better understand about the architectures and open spaces of the city.

    Thank you David, for letting us have an unforgettable time in Barcelona.
    See you next time!

  • We were very happy with our time at Davids place. The apartment is new, extremely clean and very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and contain all the comforts of a homely residence. The balcony allows plenty of fresh air in if required and provided a quintessentially beautiful Barcelona street view.

    Ravel is an excellent location to be based for a holiday in Barcelona. The neighbourhood boasts some great boutiques and is a stone throw from La Ramblas and La Boqueria. It was not a far walk to some of the best new restaurants and bars, we enjoying exploring the surrounding streets.

    David was a great host. His communication prior to arrival was prompt and clear. He provided clear directions to his place from the airport and was waiting to greet us with the keys on arrival. David kindly took us through his place and provided a map with locations of public transport and some of his favorite restaurants in Barcelona.

    I would happily recommend staying at his place, it really helped for fantastic holiday in Barcelona.

About
Hi! My name is David and I was born in Barcelona 43 years ago. I like to travel and try to go out to see the world when I have vacations. I work as technical arquitect, specialized on building restoration. My office and home is in the Raval neighbourhood. I live with my partner Eli (she's on the profile picture with me). If someone wants to know places to eat, drink, shopping in Barcelona only have to ask me. I like my city and I like to transmit my enthusiasm to others.
