Hosts were very accommodating. Arranged for pick up to train station when we left. Apartment was very clean and beautiful.
Great location, price is good for the area, photos make it look bigger than it was but still very comfortable as most of the time is spent out looking around. Great for short stay 2-4 nights.
On a whim, we had the idea to visit Barcelona in between work trips and had a great time staying at Career d'Obraders #13 last week. We arrived the same day we booked and Michael promptly met us when we arrived at the apartment. We let us inside and showed us around and also gave us a local map and helped us build an itinerary for the next 3 days. Everywhere he lead us, we had a terrific time - great food, great sightseeing, great beaches. One of the highlights was staying in the Gothic neighborhood - far better than any hotel. The apartment was super clean and provided all the amenities we need. And as a special welcome, we were provided with a chilled bottle of Kava, which got our trip started on the right foot. Book this place, you won't regret it!
The listing was accurate for the apartment and the person working for Mel and Michael who checked us in was helpful in providing information about the city. A good location if you want to be in the heart of the tourist area. We had not been to Barcelona before and found the area too crowded and too touristy for our taste but it is conveniently located to many sites and restaurants. The AC is definitely a plus as there is no breeze.
We were nicely treated and took a short walk to the apartment. the quant apartment was right inThe center of the action. Although noisy being near late night bars, this was expected in Barcelona. The location was perfect and our host gave us a great dining recommendation, which we dined at twice. The apartment was clean and our time was nice.
Michael met us promptly and made us feel very welcome.
The apartment certainly met our needs: central location, excellent shower, efficient air-conditioning, comfortable bed. We went everywhere on foot (Montjuic, Eixample, Gracia, Barceloneta), the apartment there at the end of the day to make our Barcelona break enjoyable and fulfilling.
Mel et Michael nous ont finalement reçus dans un très bel appartement avec deux chambres séparées, idéal pour 4 personnes, non loin de l'Hopital Sant Pau. L'endroit est calme et tout proche du metro et de l'agréable Avenida Gaudi qui descend vers la Sagrada Familia. Nous avons été accueillis dès notre arrivée, avec une bonne bouteille de vin, et avons pu laisser nos bagages à l'appartement. Nos hôtes étaient charmants et nous ont expliqué , plan à l'appui, que voir aux alentours, où manger, et ont réservé un taxi pour notre retour. L'appartement était élégant, clair, très bien équipé et très propre. Merci à Mel et Michael pour ce très agréable séjour.
Thanks to you!! The apartment as you know is in Las Ramblas but in these case there was an inconvenient and the guest couldn't stay at the original place so we looked for another place taking care of their needs and all the expenses. I'm glad you enjoyed anyway!! Thanks again and hoppe to see you again!

Somos una pareja muy sociable y amable, nos encanta viajar y mezclarnos con los nativos de los lugares que visitamos, nos gusta el turismo en el cual podemos sentir y vivir de manera similar a la gente del lugar por lo que queremos que la gente que visita Barcelona pueda sentir lo mismo. Yo soy española y llevo viviendo en Barcelona desde que nací, mi marido Michael es latino pero llegó a esta bella ciudad hace más de 10 años y se enamoró de ella. Barcelona es especial. En estos momentos trabajamos full time como anfitriones en alquileres de corta estancia en esta ciudad y nos encanta lo que hacemos porque nos gusta atender a la gente y que esta pueda sentirse tan cómoda como en su casa Ir a los lugares que són comunes entre los vecinos del lugar puede convertir tu viaje en algo para recordar. Te podemos dar consejos y ayudar a encontrar y recomendar lugares preciosos o visitas inolvidables tanto en esta bella ciudad de Barcelona como en otros lugares de España en los que hemos estado!
También nos encanta la buena comida (Michael es todo un gourmet!) y la pasión de Mel es el arte y cuidado de las uñas.
