I am using airbnb a lot. But Albert was most friendly host I had so far.
The good size apartment is very nice decorated. Specially the bath is nice. Everything was clean. Internet speed was also great. Location is quite central and its in a vivid area were locales live.
I can absolutely recommend to stay in this apartment.
Alberto war ein perfekter Gastgeber. Die Kommunikation war von der ersten Kontaktaufnahme bis zur Verabschiedung perfekt. Wir konnten das Apartment vom Flughafen schnell mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln erreichen – Alberto hatte uns über die schnellste und günstigste Route informiert. Nach unserer Ankunft am Abend hat Alberto uns das Apartment ausführlich gezeigt, uns mit zahlreichen Tipps für unseren Wochenendtrip versorgt und einen Tisch für uns in einem sehr guten, aber preiswerten Restaurant reserviert. Das Apartment entspricht exakt den Bildern bei airbnb. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber und trotz der zentralen Lage ruhig gelegen. Das Viertel Raval wird in einigen Reiseführern als problematisch beschrieben. Wir haben uns dort aber jederzeit sicher gefühlt – auch bei nächtlichen Kneipentouren im Raval. Die Location ist ideal, wenn man die Stadt zu Fuß entdecken möchte. Las Ramblas sind in ein paar Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Während unseres Aufenthaltes hat Alberto uns weitere Restaurant- und Ausflugstipps per Mail geschickt. Alle Tipps waren sehr gut – und in keinem unserer Reiseführer zu finden. Wir hatten ein Superwochenende. Vielen Dank an Alberto. Das war airbnb at it´s best!
Alberto was a perfect host. The communication was from the first contact until our check out perfect. We reached the apartment easily by public transport - Alberto gave us the directions for the fastest and cheapest route. After our arrival in the evening Alberto showed us the apartment, provides us with numerous tips for our weekend and reserved a table for us in a very good restaurant, with local food and fair prices. The apartment looks exactly like the images at airbnb. It is very tastefully decorated, very clean and located close to the city center. The Quarter Raval is described in some guidebooks as problematic. We felt safe at all times - even durting nightly pub crawls in the Raval. The location is ideal to discover the city by foot. Las Ramblas can be reached in a few minutes. During our stay Alberto sent us more restaurant and excursion suggestions via email. All tips were very good - and not in any of our guides. We had a super weekend. Many thanks to Alberto. That was airbnb at it's best!
Je recommande vivement ce logement, très bien situé et très joliment aménagé et équipé. Alberto est un hôte absolument charmant, joignable à tout moment et très arrangeant concernant les horaires d'arrivée et de départ. Il est très appréciable de trouver des petits produits pour la cuisine et la salle de bain qui seraient casse-pieds à prendre dans la valise pour un week-end.
Une nouvelle fois un grand merci, nous avons été absolument ravis!!!
We have just returned from a most enjoyable week in Barcelona. Alberto was a most welcoming host and he even came to find us as we were walking through the streets looking for the apartment. This place is small and well appointed with good attention to detail and very good furnishing and fittings. It also has an excellent shower , a very comfy bed and lovely granite top kitchen area. It's clean with good air con or heating. The area is gritty and urban but is the new up and coming area of Barcelona. Very close to la rambla and easy access to the metro. We thought it served our needs perfectly. Oh and it's also very quiet so no noisy neighbours so you like your sleep you will be fine.
Alberto est un hôte exceptionnel! Il a pris le temps de bien nous expliquer les coins intéressants de la ville et son appartement est très bien situé! Vraiment un must si vous passez à Barcelone!
Excellent stay at la Bourbonniere ! Alberto went out of his way to make us feel at home and accomodate us. Very clean and beautiful appt as well as being nicely situated. I would not hesitate to go back when in Barcelona next.
Alberto was a fantastic host - very friendly, communicative, flexible and helpful. The apartment was precisely as described - a wonderful space for up to two people and with great transport links across the city. Thanks Alberto, hope to stay again some time!
We had a wonderful WE in Barcelona. Thanks to Alberto! He is very friendly ! we got nice advices from him to visit the city. The appartment was very clean, very well furnished. The appartment is very well located, close to the city center. Thanks!
Alberto was a great host, super at explaining the ins and outs of the apartment. And what a charming apartment! The bathroom was magnificent, as well as the kitchen and bed. Location was superb, right in the middle of the city. Thanks again, Alberto!
I recently stayed at Alberto's apartment. What a great host! He's very warm and friendly. The place is really well done and very clean. It has great natural light and wonderful wood floors. It's perfect for a couple. It's very close to the Parallel subway stop, but one can get to most places worth seeing by foot.
The neighborhood has a lot of character. Beautiful tiny streets and great architecture. It's very safe too—We walked around very late at night. There are really great restaurants in the area, i.e. La Veronica in Rambla del Raval, and Las Fernandez, both just a couple of minutes from the apartment. By the way, if you're a Botero fan, there is an awesome Botero sculpture of a cat a couple of blocks from the apartment. There's really great street art all over the neighborhood.
I definitely recommend staying in this apartment/neighborhood.
