Our hostess was not on site and sent the cleaner to open the door for us. They did allow us to drop our luggage a few hours early but then delayed our check in by 1 hour. The location was great and the building very secure. The apartment did not live up to the pictures shown on the AirBNB website. The linens were old and uncomfortable. There was no toilet paper. We needed an early check out for a flight and this cost us 50 euros. Posted but seems a little high. Especially considering the amenities in the apartment. This apartment advertised air-conditioning. There were two small air conditioners in the one bedroom and in the main living room. The temperatures were extremely high while we were in Barcelona and the bedrooms were so hot that many of us had trouble sleeping. We have stayed in many hostels, and none that would compare to the shabby condition of this apartment. Broken down fan, One bed had just a foamy on it.
Gloria was a horrible host. She seemed to be in a rush to leave when we checked-in and charged us a late check-in fee (which is ok), but requested cash payment (against AirBnB policy).
The apartment was also grossly misrepresented. The photos in the listing give the impression the apartment is clean and spacious (something you'd expect at a 3 star hotel). However, what we found was something more comparable to a 1 star hotel. There were large stains on the wall, peeling paint on the ceiling, chipped tiles, toilets missing covers, lack of a door between two rooms (no privacy), one room with a door that wouldn't close (we had to use a suitcase to keep it closed), and a mattress used in place of a door (seriously, you cannot make this stuff up). While the number of beds matched the description, there was one room with 5 beds and another with only 1. Keep in mind all the beds are single beds except one, so one couple in our group ended up sleeping in different rooms.
Unhappy with our experience, we contacted AirBnB the same night we checked-in (we checked in late after all). AirBnB suggested we contact the host for a refund for the unstayed nights, which we did. The following morning Gloria arrived at the apartment unexpectedly and asked us what was wrong with the place. I didn't want to start an argument, so I mentioned we didn't like the place and requested a partial refund. Gloria at the time said she would provide a partial refund but that we needed to vacate the premise immediately. So a group of 9 adults and 1 toddler were forced out onto the streets in the morning without an alternate place to stay in a foreign county. While we were still on the streets looking on our smartphones for an available hotel, Gloria sent me an AirBnB message mentioning that she would not be providing a partial refund.
Fortunately we found the Hesperia Barri Gòtic hotel which had available rooms and was only a short 5 min walk away. It's rated as a 3 star hotel and we ended up paying only 20% more than Gloria's place for 4 rooms (one in our group went somewhere else) and I can say the extra money was well spent as the room quality was significantly better. I suspect if I booked this hotel in advanced, the price would've been about the same as this listing.
Le logement est très bien placé à deux pas de La Rambla. Il est idéal pour un groupe d'amis mais loin d'être aussi cosy que ce qu'on voit sur les photos.
Attention aux frais supplémentaires : un enregistrement tardif, un départ tardif ou des bagages laissés en consigne vous seront facturés.
Pour le reste, ça s'est bien passé même si une des deux douches ne fonctionnait pas.
Mari qui nous accueillait était compréhensive et nous a fait une petite réduction.
The apartment was ideal in terms of location and ideal for a large group on a weekend break! Gloria provided everything we needed and was a great host!
Very spacious apartment. Great for big groups of people. Gloria was very easy to meet and check in. The alley entrance is pretty sketchy but the apartment is nice.
Gloria ha sido eficaz y disponible en todo momento... El piso esta bien, ideal para grupos numerosos y a pie de centenas de bares...
Le logement est conforme aux photos. Spacieux pour accueillir 12 personnes.
