  • Tuvimos una estancia estupenda en barcelona. El piso esta nuevo y limpio. Las camas son muy comodas y está situado en el centro de la ciudad. Los propietarios se portaron muy con nosotros y fueron muy amables.

  • Alvaro a été très disponible et est un hôte remarquable! Grâce à lui, nous avons pu organiser une superbe fin de semaine à Barcelone, pour un groupe de 13!!! Son appartement est très bien situé, à 2 pas des ramblas et à 2 stations de métro de la navette pour l'(website hidden) est aussi très confortable et joliment amménagé. Il y a 3 balcons donnant sur la rue, ce qui est très agréable pour boire un café.L'endroit est calme et silencieux le soir, pas de problème pour dormir !. De plus,il nous a donné plein d'information sur la ville et les lieux à visiter! Nous retournerons chez lui lors d'un prochain séjour.Vraiment une adresse à garder et à recommander!!!

  • Our stay was great and made even more perfect with the warm hospitality given by Alvaro! With 6 adults and 2 kids, there was more than ample space in the apartment for everyone to rest comfortably. The apartment is clean and well-maintained, location is perfect with the metro being 3mins away, not forgetting restaurants, cafes, and even a price-friendly supermart circling the area! It is situated in the middle of popular tourist attractions, hence traveling time is greatly reduced, making it even more convenient and enjoyable.
    The impeccable service that Alvaro provided started from his prompt email responses to even going out of his way to purchase a rice cooker when we enquired of its availability; also ensuring punctual airport pick-ups.. well basically putting his guests' comfort as his first priority!!
    We would definitely choose to stay with Alvaro the next time we step foot in Barcelona!

  • Alvaro è una persona affidabilissima, precisa e cordiale. L'organizzazione è stata chirurgica, veloce ed efficiente! Ha reso il nostro soggiorno indimenticabile. L'appartamento corrisponde perfettamente alle foto, anzi dal vivo è molto più bello. Dotato di ogni comfort e localizzato in una posizione strategica. Veramente non si può desiderare di meglio! Pulitissimo e niente lasciato al caso! Nulla da dire sulla disponibilità e la cortesia! Ad incontrarne persone così! Raccomandatissimo. Tutto il gruppo in pochissimo tempo è rimasto entusiasta di Alvaro. Se dovessimo tornare a Barcellona non avremmo dubbi su chi contattare! Lo ringraziamo pubblicamente di tutto! Tony & Co.

  • Our stay in Barcelona couldn't have been more perfect. Alvaro was a kind, gracious host. He was helpful even before we arrived, with prompt answers to my inquiries. He even offered to pick us up at the airport! (His mom, Susana, actually picked us up-- she was lovely, and helped us get acclimated right away.)
    The apartment is great-- spacious, light, and equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. It's in a wonderful neighborhood, walking distance to many of the sights you'll want to see in Barcelona. We happened to be in Barcelona for Business, and the apartment made a great HQ, with speedy wi-fi and a good-sized living room for working, and four separate bedrooms with very comfortable beds.
    I'd definitely recommend both Alvaro and the apartment to anyone who's visiting Barcelona.

  • Great stay - Alvoro was really helpful, even picked us up from the airport and provided restaurant / drinks suggestions.

    Absolute recommendation.

  • We booked with Alvaro at the last minute. We were 8 people - 4 adults and 4 grown up kids. Alvaro was very prompt in his response and extremely helpful, going out of his way to assist us. As for the apartment:
    Location - excellently located, easy to get to anywhere as metro station and bus stops are a minute away. Convenient and good supermarkets/ fruit/ bread shops. Very good restaurants in vicinity. Las Ramblas and Barri Gotic 10 and 20 min walk.
    Amenities - exactly as in pictures. Washing machine, dish washer, comfortable beds - brand new with new linen. Large beds for Spain. One bathroom is tiny but both have shower. Our group of 8 was very comfortable.
    Accommodation - 8 people very comfortable and there was a spare king size bed which could sleep another 2. The apartment is spacious, with decent sized rooms so even with a large group we did not feel cramped.
    Host - Alvaro speaks excellent english which was a big help. Very helpful, he went out of his way and picked us up from the airport - bringing to cars to accommodate us. He was responsive and we felt his concern and efforts to make our stay wonderful were very genuine.He made sure there was enough cleaning equipment, detergent, wipes, napkins etc so we did not have to run around buying stuff for our short stay.
    A wonderful start to our holiday.

About
Let me introduce myself. My name is Alvaro and I was born in the beautiful Spanish city of Barcelona 40 years ago. For the past fifteen years I have been exporting antiques to many parts of the world and I have many satisfied customers because I always strive to meet their needs. One of my main attributes is that I am very interested in and focused on what I do. My interests include good food, cultural events, museums and sightseeing around Barcelona. I also enjoy travelling abroad and learning about different cultures. I also help my mother manage one of her business which is a turn-of-the century apartment building in downtown Barcelona. Because of their orientation, the apartments get a lot of sunlight. The building is well situated and there is a metro station at the door as well as numerous buses. There are many restaurants, bars and theatres in the surrounding area and major tourist attractions are nearby. In June 2012 we decided to rent these large apartments on a short-term basis to tourists and business people. They have been renovated and furnished to a high standard and are equipped with everything needed for comfortable living. We are available 24 hours per day and 7 days per week and will endeavour to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I am proud of what my city has to offer and look forward to meeting you. Alvaro
