Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Imcreible! Quim was such a great and helpful host. Cultured, Educated, and an all around great guy. Quim's place is awesome.

  • Highest praise for Quim, a great host. I had never been to Barcelona before, but thanks to his perfect and detailed information, I got the correct bus and found his flat easily. He is in the heart of the city, so I was able to walk to all the sights. His flat is spotless and beautifully designed by him - and unlike many other places, his building has an elevator. Whenever I needed advice or information, Quim was very quick to help out - and if he did not have the answer, was able to find it in seconds via the internet and then translate it into English for me. I felt as if I were the only guest in a five-star hotel, with the best concierge in town on site.

  • I visited barcelona for MWC Conference. It was a last minute decision and hotels were packed and too expensive. I tried AirBnb for the first time and landed at Quinn. The place is very centrally located. 10 minutes walk to the Ramblas and city centre. lot of cafes around. Place is nice and cosy. Quinn is a thorough Gentleman. You cannot find a better place to stay if you are a budget traveller. Highly recommended

  • Quim was very friendly and He explained how the Doors we open and the Waschmaschine works and so on. It was nice time.

    January 2014
  • The apartment is superb: modern and neat space on the top floor of modern building, very sunny with one of the walls made of glass. Quim keeps his apartment clean and tidy, which is very important in my opinion.
    The area where apartment is located, just to the east from Catalonya square, is probably the most convenient for staying in Barcelona. I spent the majority of time in El Born and Barry Gotik, which are like 10 minutes walking from apartment. This is where all attractions and restauraunts are, but I defenetly would not prefer to live there.
    Quim is very discrete and friendly man, it was a pleasure to meet him.
    Overall, I had a great experience.

    December 2013
  • It was first Airbnb experience for me and my husband, and we were happy that it was at Quim's. We stayed 2 nights and it went all good. Quim was a wonderful host and we were surprised at the cleanliness of the rooms. There were lovely balconies and sunroom. I wished I could have spent some time there to relax.
    Location was perfect - we could walk from Placa Catalunya, it was within 10 min and not difficult when carrying our luggages. Also it was walkable distance to anywhere, we walked to Casa Mila and Barri Gotic.
    For the record, there was no hair dryer. As it is winter and I have very long hair, that was the only deficit.
    We loved Barcelona and will definitely consider to stay at Quim's again.

    December 2013
  • Quim is a very welcoming and staying at his flat made my trip to Barcelona a real pleasure. I hope to return very soon.

    November 2013
  • Quim is a great host! Very friendly and nice, he provided a welcoming home to my travels.

    He was very prompt and responsive to my booking an inquiries about finding the apartment. I would definitely recommend a stay at this place to friends and family.
