Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • This apartment is even better than the pictures. It is the best place I have stayed at on my trip. The location is great - cafés, bars, the park, the beach, all at your fingertips. The host is really helpful and responds to any questions immediately. Wonderful experience.

  • A very charming apartment that feels like home. The neighbourhood is great too: lots of nice bars, restaurants and little shops and within walking distance of most of the interesting places and neighbourhoods. You can have a good night out and be home in an instant (although you shouldn’t underestimate the stairs; 96 in total I believe). Cristian is a perfect host: the communication by mail was very friendly and easy and although we didn’t meet him in person, he made sure we were received well and inquired by mail if everything was ok and if he could be of any assistance. In short: a great place to stay in Barcelona.

  • This apartment has its own personality. The light, the books, the furniture, the way things are mixed, everything seems to add to its bohemian character. Staying here gives you an opportunity to enjoy a different type of apartment. The location is also among the best to explore the different areas of Barcelona. Cristian was a very good host. He was very friendly and made sure everything was ok and nothing was needed.

  • My wife and I stayed in this beautiful loft for a week in July. It was spacious, well kept and had great facilities like a washing machine and dryer. The building is located beautifully in a great part of town - 20 mins walk from the beach and 10 mins to the Ramblas and half hour stroll to La Sagrada Familiar. I would recommend absolutely but it is a four floor walk up so probably not for the infirm or stair haters. Cristian was a gracious host who was always available and answered all questions we had. Barcelona is a wonderful town and staying in this apartment completed our pleasure.

  • We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful apartment. Aside from a small issue with one of the airconditioners, everything was absolutely wonderful. Filled with light, clean, and in a perfect location. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your gorgeous Barcelona home!

  • Cristian was incredibly responsive and accommodating when I made a last second booking. I contacted him at 11:30PM the night before flying to Barcelona and Cristian managed to help me with a completed booking in a matter of hours.

    Although the "Princess" loft was not available, Cristian managed to arrange a stay in another nearby apartment in El Gotic (the "Duplex 2" apartment). Great service!

    The Duplex 2 apartment, while very small, was very centrally located. Best part about this place is it is absolutely perfect for exploring the city.

    Overall a fantastic experience and my thanks to Cristian, Rita (who met me and provided keys) and the cleaning staff -- all superb.

    That said, there were a few small issues worth mentioning so that prospective visitors can plan accordingly.

    Pickpockets are particularly active in El Gotic. Someone attempted to steal my wallet the first night. Extra care is definitely required with money / wallets / handbags! The simple solution is to keep money and phones in buttoned or zipped pockets and handbags in front...

    Additionally, 1 minor issue with the flat - the noise protection from neighbouring apartments is poor. I had some loud neighbours during my stay, and would definitely recommend earplugs, especially if you are a light sleeper!

    Otherwise a fantastic experience, Cristian, I'll be contacting you again for my next trip to Barcelona!.
