Sharing the apartment with me and other fellow Airbnb guests, is very different of renting a hotel. Is a new thing we are all trying to adapt our self to this new set of circumstances. You knew in advance were you'd be going, otherwise you wouldn't be in one of my rooms. If something, sharing a room here is more like a roommate than hotel or family guests. Is quite hard for me, a single guy with huge apartment, to keep everything perfect with hotel standard all the time. Im not a Hotel, Motel a Hostal, im alone here and I have a life, other than my flat and Airbnb. So, I try to do maintenance all the time. I ask for a cleaning fee because that is a different job, very fiscal and hard, believe or not, and sometimes I need to ask people to help me with that money. It only covers the cleaning of your room after you left, it doesn't cover the maintenance of the place, the cleaning of the kitchen or the bathroom after you or your friends use it. As temporal roommate you could help by cleaning the kitchen and the bathroom after you used, and even give little care for the whole space while you are here. Don't hold your opinions about my place or your room or whatever circumstances you keep till the moment to review. I take those review very personally, after all I allowed you to be in my home, my space, my life. And because I try my best to keep everything in order and clean. Let me know what is it and I fix or repair it or whatever you tell me, help me out doing whatever you can for the place and, even more important, by telling me as sooner the better what you are not happy with. Is better that tha long faces and terrible reviews form both ends.
Check out must be coordinated at least the night before you departure.
Remember you can always reach me at my phone or Whats App, Telegram, Viber with the same phone number.
If you wish to contact me by email, I always prefer you use airbnb message board. It makes everything easier.
Towels and sheets are provided.
Very important too:
I live in an actual second floor but is called Primera that means first. Actual first floor is called in Spain Primera. So careful with this. Please don't knock on my neighbours doors if you are not sure is my door. My door number is 1-2, means first floor(but is a second) second door. It is an inter phone downstairs that you better ring before you come into the building. Remember 1-2.
Turn off the lights, heater, fan, when you leave the room. Save the planet.
Set the shower pressure no too hard, so you dont water the floor thus clean it up.
The room is to be left in the same condition as it was when initially checked in.
You will be responsible to maintain the standard of cleanliness and tidiness in the Room, Kitchen and the Bathroom.
Being respectful and friendly to others around you both in the apartment and neighbors.
You have full access to common spaces as kitchen, washing machine room and living room. As you do in your house clean them after use.
Here is our honest review:
- Location is excellent.
- Facilities provided is good.
- Hosts communication was very poor. Messaged him about arriving an hour early - no response on Airbnb or Viber.. He later told us he doesn't have Viber anymore. Messaged him on Airbnb the day before departure asking where he would like the keys left.. we never heard from him.
- He seemed grumpy we turned up an hour early and waited outside. Perhaps if he had communicated with us we could have avoided this.
- Bed not comfortable at all, very bad for your back.
All in all it was an ok experience for us, we were out most of the time and only at the accommodation to sleep. If you are after cheap with a good location then this place should be fine for you! Thank you for hosting us :)
You are. Right adding Viber again to Iphone, didn't know it was listed here as a way of reaching me. In general i try to make guests understand how important is not waiting for me downstairs, entering.the building before contact me, knocking or ringing my neighbours buzzer or doors. And of course, is never a good start when the guests don't read house rules and the last message I send day before. I understand must people is new to Airbnb and this kind of hosting. We the hosts are exposure to a great deal of pressure from all sides, government, neighbours, local autorithies, the list goes on and one. In general, I can't help it, to fell grumpy when I first meet a guest that didn't follow this simple rules because this very cheap room that you didn't ,and so many young couples as your self, without a budget to stay in a centric big house, maybe not existing next time you way outside the doorstep or you bother my newer asking for me. I just ask please, read the House Rules before coming. Once in my house everything is cool, and you are very free and welcome. Hope you dear guest, understand and have some empathy for small scale hosting, with solitary prices, like my self.
The room is close to the shopping, eating places and main sightseeings of the city.
Nous avons été bien reçus par Alejandro. L'appartement est sympa et très bien situé.
Ho soggiornato dal 30/08 al 02/09 con la mia ragazza. L'appartamento è composto da 3 stanze per gli ospiti, la camera dell'host, il bagno principale, un piccolo bagnetto e la cucina. La camera è piccola rispetto alle foto ma essenziale, pulita e in ordine. Anche il resto della casa pulito eccetto la cucina che era bella unta, per cucinare si lavava due volte.
Alejandro invece è una persona gentile e disponibile anche se all'arrivo abbiamo fatto fatica a contattarlo e il check in è stato fatto alle 3.
Tutto sommato esperienza positiva, da rifare
Мы жили по этому адресу в Барселоне с 10 по 20 августа 2015 года. Квартира соответствует описанию. Находится в хорошем месте, в центре старого города. Недалеко от пляжа. Условия проживания хорошие. Алехандро внимательный и гостеприимный, общительный. В квартире всегда поддерживал чистоту и порядок. Спасибо ему за все.Рекомендуем эту квартиру.
Alejandro was a very good host. He welcomed us kindly even though we checked in late. The house is very nice, and the location is perfect. We could walk almost everywhere, and public transportation is just a few steps away. We had a nice small balcony for smoking, and looking to a very nice El Born street. We had a great time.
Alejandro fue un muy buen anfitrión. Nos ayudó con lo que necesitamos, y fue muy amable en todo momento.
La habitación estaba tal cual se informaba en el anuncio.
Nosotros llegamos de madrugada, por lo que al principio y sin conocer Barcelona, nos dio incertidumbre el barrio, pero la verdad es que es seguro y está siempre lleno de gente porque es un barrio muy turístico.
Muchas gracias por todo Alejandro! Anfitrión recomendado!
