Xavi's apartment is in a great location. Everything was as it is in the photos, only problem for us was one bathroom to 8 girls. Other than that all was perfect, we were met outside the apartment on time by a very friendly woman, who gave us loads of helpful information about what was happening in Barcelona that weekend. For a big group on a budget this place is a winner!
Lovely apartment with all the things you need in the kitchen. We enjoyed our stay very much and we would all return. Big enough for 12 girls, so don't hesitate to book it if you travel in larger groups. The terrace is perfect for a quiet night.
Nous avons passé un séjour fantastique! L'appartement est agréable, propre, fonctionnel et très bien situé! Je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de rencontrer directement Xavi mais la réservation et l'organisation a été facile!
Nous reviendrons avec plaisir!
I would like to warn all against the owners of the apartment. Already during the booking the owner was a person-oriented only for profit. We traveled to Barcelona for four adults and five young children (mostly 4-8 years old). I was able to write that seven people have been coming in and the owner would never be able to see, but as I wrote truly the situation is based on the nominal discount because of the age of the children. In response, I read that for him it does not matter. We flew to Reus approximately 15.30 hrs. We called the owner to advised us what transport choose to get to their apartment before 6.00 pm (after this time you have to pay a penalty for late arrival). We heard to select the bus to barcelona and then go underground. So we did. Unfortunately, we got there 15 minutes later than 6.00. The owner said that we have to pay a fine of 25 euros. On top of that we were from Wednesday to Saturday, and the Internet began to operate only on Friday evening.
As for the apartment itself it looks kind of cool, is located close to the center, quite clean but the street it is on does not look interesting or rather does not smell too interesting. All along the street to feel the smell of sewage. In the evening, it is difficult to open the window.
In conclusion, unfortunately, I do NOT recommend ... at this price you can find many interesting offers ...
Our stay at the flat was enjoyable - Renata was our contact for the flat and she was brilliant at being on hand to make sure we had everything we needed. The whole check in and out process was really smooth and we had no problems. The only issue we had was that one day the front door to the apartment got stuck and we were unable to get in with the key (apparently a common problem) but the agents were really helpful when we called and after many attempts of trying to get in to the apartment with the key (a few hours!), we managed it! The flat was clean and comfortable and the location of the apartment was perfect. It was really central to lots of bars and restaurants and there was a lovely little bakery just across the street. Beware the photos make the apartment look a little bigger than in reality, but the cosiness of it all just added to the authentic 'city-living' feel, and for 8 of us sleeping, there was enough space. Good value for money and a great location - to be recommended!
