We loved Arian's apartment! He was such a great host and was so easy to communicate with- he called us from the airport and met us at person in the apartment, and whenever we texted or called him with a question he was very helpful. The apartment is clean, comfortable and cute, and the AC was a huge bonus during summer in Barcelona! It's on the top floor of a building that doesn't have an elevator, but you get used to the stairs. Would absolutely stay here again!

This is a cozy apartment in the heart of Barcelona, great for a couple. It's located within walking distance to major landmarks like Sagrada Familia (you can see it's tips from the balcony!), Triumph Arch and Plaza Tetuan and the Born district. There are many great restaurants, cafes and bars in the area too. Chocolate Sampaka, a world-known artisan chocolate maker, is a 20-minute walk. For its size, the apartment is well equipped: it has a small kitchen with a sink and a two-burner electric cooktop, a washing machine + a drying rack and an iron, and a dining area. We definitely felt a bit crammed, but at the same time the place felt romantic. There are a couple of things worth noting that aren't mentioned explicitly on the listing. First, the building doesn't have an elevator. While not uncommon for the area, the staircase in this particular building is very narrow and steep. It feels like a little hike every time you go up which is a great way to burn some extra calories after those hearty Mediterranean meals. However, lugging the suitcases upon check-in and check-out was somewhat painful. The place is better suited for light travelers :) Second, the place doesn't have as much privacy as we had expected it to. The patio is very gorgeous, but it's accessible to all tenants in the building. One time when we were in the apartment, the neighbor kids ran up there to play. That said, the patio is very beautiful as the pictures witness. Also, the drapes on the door and the windows are pretty thin and make you feel like you're in a fish tank. The communication with the host was fantastic - we were able to arrange our arrival at the time that worked for us, and Arian checked on us over the phone/text multiple times during our stay. Overall, I think we got a very good value out of this booking, for the price and location. Would recommend Arian's place, with a couple of caveats mentioned above.

The apartment looks exactly as shown in the pictures and the location is great, it is very close to all the important places in Barcelona. The communication with Arian and his team was really well organized and they are very helpful. We can only recommend staying at his place.

I was quite disappointed with my experience this time. I was given a couple different reasons why the apartment I booked was no longer an option. I feel as though the host was not being honest about the circumstances because his story changed. I was sent pictures and offered an alternative apartment. Although I attempted to decline I was misunderstood (understandable). I should mention I was asked for more money because the new apartment I was shown was a 2 bedrooms instead of 1. When I arrived the apartment I was taken to was not even the one I was sent pictures of. It was a 3 bedroom. As soon as I expressed that I was not pleased with the situation Arian said he was going to cancel my booking as to avoid a bad review. He also continually brought up the monetary loss he was taking by having us in the 3 bedroom. I have never had anything arise like this. I panicked at the thought of having nowhere to stay and said we would stay. Next time I won't make this mistake. I feel as though Arian threatened to revoke our stay to scare us into a good review. However I feel like people need to know. I later discovered the place wasn't even listed on his Airbnb or his property management website ((URL HIDDEN) I can not recommend this host.

Our stay at Arians apartment in Barcelona was very nice. The flat has a nice location with a 15 min walk to the Born area and a 30 min walk to the beach. The flat is nice and especially the tearesse is really nice. The apartment is overall in an okay condition - the only minus is that the door to the bathroom is of glass, and you can not close it properly, so you don't have much privacy there. But overall a very nice flat - and Arian and his people were very helpful if anything was needed.

Great little apartment on the top floor. It's very close to Sagrada Familia and some great little cafés/patisseries. The transport in Barcelona is excellent so the apartment has easy access to all areas of the city. I can thoroughly recommend going to Barcelona - the architecture and food are amazing. Arian is a great host. He is very accommodating. The list for the accommodation says no towels or iron, but these were provided too as well as fruit and drinks when we arrived.

The apartment is in a great location, near to a few underground stations and within walking distance to major attractions and exclusive areas. It is almost in perfect conditions and very similar to the pictures. The terrace is great and during my stay, I didn't see anyone using it. There is bit of noise from cars but after midnight I couldn't hear any noise. There are great places to visit nearby so it was a shame that written information wasn't provided by the host with suggestions, like restaurants, cofe shops, etc. however Adrian was always available both by email and telephone to answer any queries. Adrian was very accommodating and allowed me to leave my suitcases in his apartment after my check-out time as I was spending the morning at parc Guell. I would stay in his apparent again.
