I arrived and went to the apartment. Laura's boyfriend answered the phone. The address in the e-mail differed from the one of the apartment but nothing to worry, we found it. Great apartment in great location. All good.
This place was great! The location was perfect - not far from La Rambla, and steps away from Placa Real. Even more importantly, it's in the Gothic area which has tons to explore, and also a short walk from Born. We had also rented mopeds and it was pretty easy to find nearby places to park them overnight. Would definitely stay here again.
We truly liked the location of the apartment. We could not be more centrally located. Loved the terrace. It was a nice apartment for a small group.
Daiga a eu un excellent contact avec nous, mais elle était malheureusement absente lorsque nous sommes arrivés et nous avons été accueillis par le contact du contact dont elle nous avait donné les coordonnées... Petit problème : l'adresse de l'appartement n'est pas exacte car il est situé Carrer de Vidre, 7 au lieu de Carrer de Escudellers, 20.
L'appartement correspond tout à fait à la description et il est très agréable avec ses trois chambres et trois salles de bain (nous étions 3 couples d'amis). La terrasse est grande, mais très exposée au soleil dans la cour et entourée des climatiseurs des appartements (donc assez bruyante).
Il manque de la vaisselle en quantité suffisante pour 6 personnes, et nous aurions apprécié d'avoir quelques capsules de café et pastilles pour le lave-vaisselle à notre arrivée, avant de pouvoir aller faire des courses en magasin.
Le quartier est très central, avec de nombreux restaurants et une animation non-stop (à éviter pour les insomniaques !). Nous en avons bien profité car notre séjour a involontairement coïncidé avec la semaine des fêtes de la Mercè (la plus grande fête votive de Barcelone). En bref, nous nous sommes régalés (mention spéciale pour la bodega en face de l'appartement.
I booked the apartment for myself and 5 friends to celebrate a birthday in Barcelona. It was the first time any of my friends had used airbnb and perhaps for them, will be the last.
The apartment is located very centrally, close to La Ramblas, because of this it is also very noisy, with partygoers and music until 1-3am each night. The house itself is spacious and well equipped with each room having its own bathroom.
The major concerns were around communication and responsiveness. Diaga requested information about our arrival date at booking (3 months prior to arrival) which we were unable to confirm. Two months prior to arrival, I contacted her to see if friends who were arriving early to Barcelona could check in, this message was not responded to, I contacted 3 weeks before arrival to confirm flight arrival times with no response, and twice a week prior requesting confirmation of the details and any necessary information. Diaga responded stating she would be waiting at the apartment, then requested we call her 30 minutes before arrival, which we confirmed we could.
We arrived slightly later than expected due to a flight delay however, they were still completing the house making beds etc. We were asked to sign an agreement to join a 'gastronomic Society' to adhere to Barcelona's strict rental policies, it felt we had little choice but to agree to this, but felt this really should have been communicated prior to check in.
During our stay we broke a glass jar, we were unable to find a broom or dustpan in the house to clean this. I wrote a message to Diaga at approx 8 at night which had still not been responded to the next morning. I recontacted her as there remained glass on the ground. Upon returning home that afternoon we found a broom and dust pan in the kitchen but the message was not replied to nor were other request in the message.
An additional cleaning fee of $70 and a $500 deposit both are excessive and not something I have encountered in other airbnb stays. I have stayed in airbnb places that have been run by businesses that have operated very professionally and other properties that have felt very personal, this felt like neither.
Overall the place is nice, but the lack of communication is stressful especially if you are renting for a group.
I am sad to read Nicoles review. As everything was perfectly prepared for her stay. And only because I brought her broom next day...not 8 pm as she was requesting, she wrote this bed review.
As well its written that guests will need to pay check in and cleaning fee upon arrival and deposit will be taken with credit card preauthorizathion.
