Great location!! El born is hip and chic and not too touristy with a good mix of locals. The apartment is cute and artistic, Lucia is very kind and helpful! Be prepared to climb quite the set of stairs to get to the apartment , so pack your bags light. Would recommend for a true Spanish experience.
Das Zimmer bei Xabi & Lucia ist sehr gemütlich und ziemlich gross, so dass man sich auch gut am Tag darin aufhalten kann. Die ganze Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und wir durften alles mitbenutzen.
Auf dem Balkon kann man gut Essen und dabei das Spanische Leben auf der Strasse beobachten. Die Lage ist aber dennoch so, dass es Nachts ziemlich ruhig wird.
Xabi & Lucia sind beide sehr nett und haben uns bei Fragen immer gleich geholfen.
Ich kann die Wohnung nur weiter empfehlen!
That was a great time in Barcelona! The place is absolutely the same as on the pictures. The apartment has a favourable location too. A lot of bars, museums and other cool places are near apartment. Lucia & Xabi were very friendly. Lucia answered for all our questions and was very helpful. We are highly recommend this host!
Xabi and Lucia arranged a great stay for us in Barcelona. They were away during our visit, so they had their friend Lissette meet us with the keys. When we were delayed with traffic, Lissette contacted us and explained how to get to her work so I could collect the key.
The apartment has a lot of character. We didn't use the kitchen for any cooking, but it was set up for it and available, along with everything in the fridge and cabinets. The view to the street is really nice. We love to hear the sounds of street activity at night; a really light sleeper might be bothered by this, but that's likely to be the case in a lot of this city.
The apartment is in a great area of El Born. An excellent restaurant, Loft Del Born, is literally next door to the building entrance; we ate there twice. A wonderful little square is around the corner. The walk to the Metro at Jaume I is short and lined with great shops and cafes. Now that we know the city decently well, I would recommend anyone to stay in this neighborhood.
Above all, you are two blocks from the Estació de França train station, which takes you directly to places like Sitges and the Aeroport. This was super valuable for us. We caught the first train to the airport at 5:00 AM for our 7:10 flight to FRA. It was a 2 minute walk, 30 minute train, and then tram to Terminal 1 at the airport. From other areas of BCN, you'd have to make a transfer or pay more for the Aerobus or a taxi.
We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Barcelona.
Staying with Xabi and Lucia felt like staying with my favorite family members. They made me very welcome in their home and I felt inspired being around such a creative, happy family. The location is superb - I loved the neighborhood El Born. The room was perfect - very light, airy, and spacious. When I return to Barcelona I will definitely stay with them again.
L'appartement de Xabi et Lucia était tout simplement parfait: bien décoré, fidèle à la description, propre et très bien localisé dans le quartier El Borne! Ils n'étaient pas là pour nous accueillir mais se sont assurés que leur ami Pablo nous accueille et il nous a donné de très bons conseils et répondu à nos questions!
Très bons restaurants de tapas à proximité et situé près de la playa Barceloneta, du quartier Gotic, de la ramblas, etc!! Nous le recommandons sans hésiter! Merci :)
She made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable, it was my first time in Barcelona and she also gave me so many suggestions on places to go. Overall it was an amazing experience at her place!
