Interaction with Guests
We're on hand should you need any thing or have any questions.
village within a city as people describe it; walking distance to everywhere it is only 15 minute walk to Passeig de Gracia yet a step away from that city feeling. It enjoys bustling squares and vibrant bar and cafe life. If you want to experience the real Barcelona and feel like a local this is the location for you.
It is only one block (2 minute walk) from the Metro station and just 7 stops to the beach. Just 3 stops away from Paseo de Gracia metro Station and 4 stops away from Plaza Cataluña (metro Urquinaona).
Other Things to Note
IMPORTANT: If you do not arrive until after 10pm on the day of arrival please contact us before making your booking.
As you will be staying in a fully touristic licensed apartment There is a tourist tax of .75 cent per adult per night, this needs to be paid on check in please. Children under 16's are free.
- No smoking inside the apartment but there are 3 small balconies altogether where you can smoke.
- Respectful and reasonable quiet noise levels especially after 11pm.
- No loud parties please!
- With the hot weather we would really appreciate if you could clean down kitchen surfaces at least once a day (only if used) and bring out the garbage at least every second day. This is necessary in the hot weather, thank you! The garbage bins are located very close to your apartment - near the main front door. They are the big grey plastic containers - you can't miss them! Cheers!
- Most importantly relax and enjoy your stay!
We were three colleagues staying at Phil and Fiona'a house for some days. The apartment was perfect! It was located in a very nice area of Gracia and easily accessible. The apartment itself is super pretty with cute little details and an amazing character. Everything you need was provided for and workings perfectly. We much enjoyed out time and would return anytime again.
Gracias Phil and Fiona por hacernos sentir como en casa y hacer nuestra estancia en Barcelona muy facil.
El piso es impresionante y en una zona muy buena.
The apartment was the perfect base for our long weekend. Would thoroughly recommend. Fiona and Phil were really responsive and helpful throughout.
Nous avons vécu un superbe séjour à Barcelone et l'appartement était à la hauteur de nos attentes. Phil, Fiona et Noa ont été disponibles à tout point de vue. Seul petit bémol : il n y a pas d'ascenseur (2 étage)
The apartment is very well located, close to the main interesting points in Barcelona. O was traveling with my family and we were able to walk around the city and back to the apartment very easily. The apartment is very comfortable and it's worth the value. The owners were very quick to answer all our requests and questions
We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. Thanks to Phil and Fiona.
The apartment was well appointed and in a great neighborhood. In terms of our experience both renting it and working with the host, it was less than ideal. First of all, it is my suggestion that the host include all of the necessary fees and taxes within the listing. It is confusing and a nuisance to plan for bringing cash above and beyond the listing and frankly feels a little bit unethical. It would be more desirable if all applicable fees were visible and included in the listing. In terms of our communication with the host, we did everything asked including filling out a robust document of details. Within it we listed our planned arrival time. An hour prior to our arrival time we were getting calls and emails from the host telling us we needed to get there soon or we would not have time to get into the apartment. This was upsetting because we had done everything asked and were tracking on time to our arrival. When we did arrive she made us feel badly that she had been waiting for quite a long while. Again, not great customer service. All in all, the stay was fine. The additional fees outside of the airbnb structure of payment and the communication with the host were less than ideal.
I agree that we did not hit it off on the right foot at the beginning. After you made the booking, you emailed us that you were unhappy with paying the cleaning fee at check in. This was very clearly outlined in the description about the apartment in the beginning and 'other things to note'. I did address your concern immediately and asked if you were not happy with that we could cancel the reservation without any penalties to you. You said you were happy to proceed. We then edited the booking so the cleaning fee was included so not to inconvenience you. I am quite upset that you are highlighting this after we thought we had addressed this issue you had at the time. For future guests please note that the cleaning fee is now included in the booking. The tourist tax is due in cash on check in and there is nothing we can do about this. This is the standard procedure across the board in Barcelona. With regard to the check in - you emailed me from the airport to say you expected to be at the apartment at 3:30. I waited till 4:30 for you to arrive which is not a problem normally but I had another check in waiting for me which I had changed the time around to suit yours so I was a little rushed on your checkin. I am very sorry you thought I made you feel bad! That was certainly not my intention. Again for future guests we like to communicate as much as possible so we can avoid situations like this and be therefore we have have plenty of time to welcome you at check in.
