The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The stay at Luis home didn`t come into being because there was a technical problem with the booking system.
I have spent one week in Luis' apartment. It is clean, well-appointed and as advertised. Its location is convenient both to reach the beaches and to go to the city center. The street in front is lively and has a lot of restaurants, bar, shops and convenience stores. On one hand, this provides several alternatives and does not force to walk a lot to sastisfy the basic needs. On the other hand, this makes the neighborhood rather noisy as well. People can speak loudly until 2-3 am and life begins again around 7 am at most. This may be a problem if you want to sleep, especially because only light curtains cover the windows and no shutters are present. Aside from these considerations, which are positive in the overall, I must say that I was disappointed by the behavior of the host. We had satisfying and reassuring communications during the reservation process and before my trip. Unfortunately, this was not enough to have a pleasant and "surprise-free" experience. More specifically, we agreed on a time of arrival for the first day, i.e., 1 am. However, I could access the apartment only 7 hours after my arrival, i,e, at 8 pm, which is a big delay. In practice, the host was not available when I arrived and there was no way of contacting him. I had to wait for almost 3 hours before being able to get in touch with a person that could provide some help (the person that actually lives in the apartment, which as I said made me enter the apartment 7 hours after my arrival). A second problem has been experienced for my departure. The day before my departure, at 1 am in the morning, I was told that I would have had to free the room within 9 hours, i.e., 10 am, since the room had to be cleaned before the arrival of the next guest. It goes without saying that I would have appreciated a longer notice, at least 24h, especially considering the problem I had when I arrived. Anyways, I freed my room at 10 am as requested, but noone came to clean the room. I actually left the apartment at 4 pm (I received the permission to do so), ans still noone had come to clean the room. In practice, I could have lived my last day a lot more calmly if I had been told to free the room later. Summarizing, I spent one week in Luis' apartment, hence the impact of the problems I had for the arrival/departure has been limited to a couple of days. Had I spent less time in Barcelona probably my review would have been much worse, especially if considering the noisy neighborhood.
I have spent two weeks in this apartment with my friend. It is near the beach and in the street with lot of restaurants. The metro station is also very near. In the evening it is very loud because of the restaurants, so if you are in Barcelona to take rest, I would not recommend it for you. The place is perfect for young people.
The room is clean, you can ask for clean towels when you need it.
Luis wasn`t in the apartment, but Salvador waited for us and was there from time to time. He is very nice and although he does not speak english we have managed to communicate.
Overall, we are satisfied with our stay in this apartment and would recommend it to enyone.
Very nice room and direct access to our own bath room. In total the flat is good.
Near the beach! 5 minutes to walk. Underground Poublenou is very close and it is easy to get to the centre of the city. A lot of bars and restaurants in the street. We would advise on earplugs.
Luis was not there himself. In advance the communication was a little bit to less in our opinion. Anyhow, at the end everything went smoothly. Salvador, who is living in the flat, is a nice guy and we had some good conversation and he gave us hints for parking.
Thanks for the accomodation!
