We had a fantastic time at Pepo's apartment. The apartment is beautiful, lovely wooden floors and long windows which let in plenty of light.
The apartment is well kitted out, it has everything you need including hairdryer and toiletries in the bathroom and all the kitchen essentials.
We didn't find any great bars near the apartment but this was fine, as we'd rather have peace and quiet throughout the night and drink a little farther out. Plus what could be a better end to the evening than a walk back to the apartment from the metro past the most beautiful building in Barcelona. We will definitely be staying again!
Bel appartement ! Calme, bien situé et agréable à vivre. Pepo est un hôte accueillant. Nous recommandons cet endroit sans hésiter.

L'appartement de Pepo est très agréable pour decouvrir Barcelone. Il est situé à deux pas de la Sagrada Familia, avec de nombreux restaurants, transports et commerces autour, le top. Il est très propre, possède une belle cuisine et est très calme au niveau du bruit de la rue. Nous n'avons malheureusement pas rencontrer Pepo mais il nous a envoyé de nombreux messages via Airbnb afin de savoir si notre séjour se déroulait bien et nous a donné les informations importantes sur l'appartement. De plus il réponds très rapidement en cas de besoin et est très sympathique ! Le seul point faible s'il devait y en avoir serait peut être le pommeau de la douche qui est un peu usager et le bruit de certains voisins qui descendent mais rien de derengeant outre mesure. Nous avons en tour cas passe un très bon moment à barcelone et je n'hésiterai pas à recommander l'appartement !
We loved this apartment in Barcelona. It exactly matched the photos and its location was brilliant. Literally around the corner from the Sagrada Familia and within easy public transport distance of the main attractions. You can even walk there from Las Ramblas if you enjoy a walk. The apartment was spotlessly clean with a spacious, welcoming feel. Plenty of room and a genuinely comfortable bed. We slept so well. Pepo was great with the communication and very supportive and we were so pleased with our choice. Just one thing it is on the third floor which made it great for views and keeping noise to a minimum but there is no lift and so you do have to climb the stairs. Once inside though it was brilliant and we'd go back for sure on our next visit to Barcelona.
Pepo is a great host and was very helpful in sorting out some Eurail problems I had. The place is exactly as advertised and is brilliant for a stay in Barcelona.
It is difficult when, like me, you have never visited a city to know how good a location is. You can stare at a map all you like but it is really difficult to really tell. I can assure you that Pepo's apartment is beautifully located. So easy to walk to many places & the wonderful Barcelona metro is just minutes away.
There is an unusual numbering system and the apartment is actually 4 flights of stairs up, so bear that in mind if stairs are a problem for you. It wasn't for me and I am no spring chicken.
I unreservedly recommend Pepo's apartment.
Thanks Pepo for giving me such a great first airbnb experience.
Sehr cooles Apartment und ein netter Gastgeber! Pepo hat bereits im Apartment auf uns gewartet und uns in Kürze alles wichtige gezeigt und erklärt. Die Unterkunft enspricht der Beschreibung und war sehr ordentlich und sauber. Die Ausstattung ließ ebenfalls keine Wünsche offen. Die Lage ist wirklich optimal, besonders wenn man die Stadt zu Fuß erkunden möchte. Bis zum Strand oder La Rambla sind es keine 30 Minuten. Ansonsten gibt es auch die Metro direkt in der Nähe. Fazit: Sehr empfehlenswert, würde ich jederzeit wieder buchen!
