  • The Central Duplex Great Terrace was perfect for us. My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights (we should have booked a longer stay!) and we found that the duplex was very well equipped, furnished and decorated. The terrace (in a walled inner courtyard) is very private, good for relaxation and is a really positive feature of the duplex. The duplex is well located being very near the beach/promenade but also within easily walking distance of La Ribera and Barri Gothic. We also found it easy using public transport (nearby public bus stops, metro, and tourist bus stop). The duplex is located in a quiet street - at night-time completely silent which made for good sleeping! Also there are lots of restaurants nearby. In summary it is very ideal.

  • Tom and Jay are real good hosts. They always reacted immediately on the questions we had about the apartement and leaving our luggage. A few days before arrival we received an e-mail about how to reach te apartment. Upon arrival we were received very friendly. They even had a leaflet for us about where we coud store our luggage on our departure. The appartment was clean and convenient. Very close to the beach and to the city centre. We realy enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and would defenitely recommend this apartment to everyone!

  • Fantastic place - we have stayed in quite a few AirBnB places by now, and can recommend absolutely recommend Tom & Jay's place, especially for the price offered (around 60 Euro in February). It was very clean (often an issue), lots of small touches (e.g. new sponges in the kitchen), and had absolutely everything needed. And a massive movie collection. Tom & Jay used or occasionally still do live here themselves, and it shows.

  • Thanks Jay for your great hospitality and for trusting us with your unique home. Perfect location for our first yet brief visit to this amazing city. We plan to come for longer next time.

  • The apartment is really cool. It's absolutely clean. There were no problems with heating or hot water. Free underground parking - very convinient for such a city as Barcelona. Tom and Jay speak English fluently, we had no problems with communications. The location is great, 5 minutes walk and you're on Via Laietana. Lot's of small stores, bars and restaurants around. It's really a very very nice place. Even in winter :)

  • The apartment is very nice and well equipped. The kitchen, the bathrooms and the livingroom had evrything one could want. The position is super close to the beach. The city centre is 15 minutes walk time. I would reccomend this house more in summer then in winter, but still it was a very nice place to stay in. The hosts were superhelpful. We had internet issues and they immediately called the techincal service and managed ti solve the problem.
    The sofa bed was ok, but not very comfy. I would suggest going only in 2 people or maybe a family with children.

    Response from Tom And Jay:

    Thanks for your comments Lorenzo, we always appreciate guests feedback. Unfortunately no sofa bed will ever be as comfortable as a good mattress which we have in the bedroom, there’s no doubt about it. We just never heard from our guests, as you can see from other comments, any complains. Having said that there’s always room for improvement and we are about to order new large sofa and a separate lounge which should make it much more comfortable for groups of 4, like yours.

    As for the location, in the apartment is 3 minutes walk away (a “jump away” as you can read from a comment below) from the beach, so yes - it’s much nicer during the spring/summer months than in the winter, however even during the cold months there’s plenty to do around and it’s just a short walk away from El Born or Gotico. Many thanks, Tom and Jay

  • Tom and Jays place was perfectly located for a getaway in Barcelona! Just a jump to the beach and the restaurants there and only a 15min walk to the city centre. I would recommend staying here if you get the chance!

About
Hi guys, we are Tom and Jay, both professionals working in IT, living most of the time in Barcelona, but also in London (Barcelona is the greatest city to live in and London is the greatest city just to visit ;). We always heard from our friends how great hosts we are, so we decided to start with Airbnb and share this experience with others, we love to travel, have lots of time to do it, so it seems like a good beginning of a great adventure. We already have experience in flat exchanges, so we exactly know how to make you feel at ease whilst staying in our apartment. We both have work experience in hospitality and we believe we know what's important to make your holidays that little bit special.
