Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed for 8 nights in the apartment in the heart of Barcelona. The apartment is located right in the centre of Barcelona, everything is in walking distance.

    Im very disappointed about the cleanliness of the apartment. It was very dirty!! The shower didn't seems like has been cleaned since it was new, and it was mold and fungus all over!! The kitchen was dusty and lots of frying fat all over. Plates and cutlery was dirty, so I didn't even try to use anything of it.
    The refrigerator has a need for defrost, since everything you put in to it get frozen.
    The sheet on the bed had lots of stains.

    It was intended that the son of the Host was going to meet me to take the key when I would leave the apartment, but he did not show up as agreed. Tried to call him, but only got the phone responds. 30 minutes later he sent a text message that he was late and could not meet me. I almost lost my plane because of this!

    I will only recommending the apartment to backpackers who are used to staying at Hostal and are not so much interested in the cleanliness.

  • This was my third time to Barcelona and I usually stay in the Ciutat Vella area. I was here for 4 nights; Jordi met me right away and was prompt in helping me check-out. Overall I loved the apt. It was a bit noisy on weekend nights since it's close to bars, but I'm usually out late so it didn't bother me. During the days you can open up the doors and windows looking down on the street below... and it's beautiful to just hang out, do some work, and have a couple beers from the local grocery store. I actually slept the last night with the doors open just to listen to the city and to wake up to sunlight. It's about a 5-6 minute walk from 2 subway stations. The TV signal was crappy sometimes, but let's be honest, you shouldn't be watching TV if you're visiting Barcelona. It also has a great little roof top terrace to hang out on during the evenings with a friend... or again, do a little work or read a book.

  • Nice experience.

    I met Mr Ignasi son Jordi, a nice guy with a smile.

    It is good apartment on the 4th floor in an old building,
    Got all you need for couple or more days.
    No elevator, don't carry large or heavy stuff with you,
    Place got WiFi, logging info is in the back of the router.

    Location is great for Barcelona stay, just a few minutes from the Liceu (Opera House) and MACBA (Museum of Modern Art)
    Barri Gòtic is less than 10 min walk.
    Very quiet at night. Good feeling
    You'll exercise your legs in the stairs!!!

    I would recommend the place if you like to stay in the Raval.

  • Ignasi and his son Jordi were very easy to work with. The room is in a great location and provided us exactly what we needed at the right price. I would definitely book this room again.

  • Who could ask for a friendlier, more enthusiastic introduction to Barcelona? After clear and helpful communications with Ignasi prior to my trip, his son Jordi welcomed me to the flat and the city with genuine warmth and hospitality. Located conveniently close to Plaza Cataluyna (direct bus to the airport in 30min) and las Ramblas, the flat is tucked down a sidestreet with a wonderful tapas restaurant on the corner. This large studio flat is on the fifth floor of a well worn building, but in itself is clean and newly renovated. With hot and powerful shower, Internet, cooking faculties and clean towels all provided. There is access to the communal roof terrace for smokers.

    It was perfect for my weekend stay, close to nightlife and easy to find. The romantic soundscape of Barcelona at night seeping in the windows lulled me to sleep and made me feel immersed in the city.

    Jordi made it clear that if i needed anything he would be happy to help, or show me around. A perfect host.

  • Everything very fine.
    The studio is spacious, clean, new and very cute.
    Has a lot of light (which is rare in the old town)
    It's in right in the middle of the historic town, so it's perfect for holidays in Barcelona.

    And the host was very friendly.
    I recommend this place.

  • Appartement conforme au descriptif et aux photos. Prix raisonnable. Propre, bien situé et dans une rue calme. Bonne literie. En revanche, l'escalier commun pour accéder à l'appartement est un peu fatiguant et sentait très mauvais lors de notre séjour (mais aucune odeur dans l'appartement lui-même). En hiver (séjour le 31/12) le chauffage assuré par la Clim est un peu bruyant (comme une clim d'hôtel). Accueil très chaleureux par Jordi, le fils d'Ignasi qui parle assez bien français (et anglais). Avons laissé les clefs sur la table en partant.

  • I had a great time at Ignasi's, the apartment is located in a quite street in the very lively neighborhood of Raval. Is surrounded of great bars, cafes and restaurants, and just 10 min walk away of the city center.

    The apartment has all you need for 1 or 2 people, it was clean and tidy and has a great value for the price.

    I would recommend the place if you like to stay in the Raval.
