El apartamento esta muy bien, está bien equipado, éramos cinco personas cómodos, la ubicación es buena, unas cuatro cuadras del subte.
No conocimos a Cristina pero respondía enseguida a nuestros mensajes. Gracias, lo pasamos muy bien!!
밤 늦게 숙소에 도착했는데 청소하시는 분들께서 기다려주시고, 몇몇의 주의할 점이라던지 사용방법도 자세히 알려주시고 지도도 보여주며 친절히 설명해주셔서감사했다. 숙소는 지하철과 가까웠는데, 일주일정도 지내며 필요에 따라 지하철을쉽게 이용할 수 있어서 편리했다. 화장실도 2개나 있어 편했고, 난방도 적정했다. 침대 또한 3개나 있어서 무척 편안하고 넓게 자신들의 공간을 이용할 수 있어서 좋았다.
Our vacation at Barcelona was very good. We were 5 people. The apartement is nice und looks like exactly as on the picture. The flat is 5min away from the subway station which is pretty good to go to the airport or everywhere in the city.
Cristina is a good host. She waited us until our late arriving at the flat.
The appartment was really clean.
She wasn't able to meet us at the apartment so she sent her cleaning lady which was a bit awkward as she spoke no english and our spanish was less than ordinary. She was communicative via email though. The only pluses were really only the location and the spaciousness of the apartment. I have to say I was disappointed. I chose this apartment because the reviews I read said it was clean and the list of facilities lead me to believe we would be comfortable over the 8 nights we stayed. Unfortunately quite a number of the facilities didn't work, the apartment was far from clean and smelt like a public toilet for most of our stay. The bathrooms look like they have never seen a good scrub and bleach. There is dust everywhere. The kitchen cupboards are greasy and the insides need a thorough clean. There are no mattress protectors or pillow protectors. When pressed about the appliances that weren't working she said that she was out of town and unable to do anything until she returned. This would have been fine I if they had been broken during our stay but these items had obviously been broken for some time. This means that she let the apartment under a false set of pretexts. We rented it expecting to be able to use the facilities advertised. She knew they were faulty and yet made an effort to fix them only two days before we were due to leave. Given that we were here over Christmas I felt this was a poor show.
This review is quite exaggerated and inaccurate. The only real problem was that the DVD player was broken (actually nobody complained about that before because nobody used it for years, I supposed that the reason why it was broken).
1. Quite a number of the facilities didn't work? The only thing that didn't work in the apartment was the DVD. Catrina complained about a DVD which didn't work. I bought a new microwave and TV (because they were a bit old, but worked) and a DVD for them in order to try to make them happy (something that they didn't mention in the review). For some reason we couldn't make the DVD work with the TV, so I offered them the DVD as a Christmas present to take for their next 2 destinations so they could watch all the DVDs they had with them but they didn't accept the present.
2. They didn't tell me anything about the house not being clean, I would have cleaned myself if they had complained about that during their stay, as I went to the apartment 3 times during their stay to bring them things. To be honest in the 3 times I went there I didn't find it particularly dusty or dirty, and I also did the cleaning for the following booking myself and I didn't find any greasy cupboards or public toilet smell.
In conclusion I think this family expected the service of a 4* hotel in an economic rental apartment and they were quite impolite not accepting the DVD player as a present or value all the efforts that I made to solve the DVD issue (I bought 2 different DVD players), which was apparently a key element for their Christmas holidays.
Cristina's place was very comfortable to stay in with five people. It was very close to La Sagrada Familia, which was nice and also close to the metro to get to places like plaza Catalunya and plaza españa. I would definitely recommend staying here! Cristina was also a very helpful host.
Quiet apartment near the Clot metro stop. A friend of Cristina's met us to drop off the key, but Cristina was responsive and helpful by email. Although the apartment was clean, we did notice the peculiar odor despite attempts to keep it at bay.
The apartment is very nice. Clean and in a very nice location. We had a very pleasent stay. Thanks!
