Although Quim was not at the room to greet us, he was very attentive and communicative about where to get keys etc, due to our late arrival. He also was friendly enough to print out bus tickets! The appartment is beautiful, looked exactly as expected with lovely bright light. The room is the perfect size as well. Highly recommended.
We had a great time for 3 nights. We were scheduled to journey from Paris to Madrid via Barcelona. And it was specially good for us to do a laundry in the middle of the journey. Furthermore, there were many supermarkets near apartment so we bought many things such as fruits. And the owner was very kind. As for the location, the place is good for both getting to it from the airport and going to Santz station from it to ride Renfe.
Quim was a fantastic host. Went out of his way to accommodate me in Barcelona. His flat was fantastic and the room was very comfortable!
The place is in a great location, a few mins walk from Plaza Catalunya and on the edge of the old city. Metro stations and bus stops are very close by. The host is very nice, attentive and the place is nice and clean, with very comfortable room.
Quim was very nice. Best thing about the room was the black out blinds. The air conditioning was very good so the room was always cold. Would stay here again
We really enjoy our stay at Quim even if we didn't see him a lot (being really busy visiting the city). The appartment is really well located and we were really confortable in the room with airconditionning.
