  • Great base for a short trip to Barcelona, perfectly located to explore the city. Interior wise, the photos say it all.

    Sonia was an excellent hostess. Friendly, welcoming and knowledgable of the area with good communication.

    Would definitely stay again.

  • We had a very short stay in Sonia's apartment, it was everything we expected for the one night; clean, big enough to accommodate the five of us for a short stay and a great central position.

    Sonia is so helpfull,se provide us a lot os usefull information about the city and explained us the easily way for going from the airport to the apartment,where we meet to the check in.

    The apartment's location was perfect for tourist,not more than 10 min walking to Ramblas and city bus tour. The neighborhood was plenty of nice shops,restaurants and bars.

    Sonia was really nice with us, during our stay she has been making sure that everything was satisfactory.

  • The host was really helpful and the flat centrally located.

    After the first night I woke up with a bite on my neck and head, after the second night they appeared on my arm - when I got home I got them checked out and my doctor clarified they were from bed bugs.

    Response from Sonia:

    Hi Scott, thanks for informing me of your suspicions, as I said in my previous email, I regret the inconvenience you've had, if I had known before I would not have accepted more reservations for this apartment until I have solved the problem. Next week is empty and of course I'll do a full treatment of this apartment. I will make available to airbnb and futures guests, certificates of this health treatments.

  • Sonia's apartment is located just down a side street off Carrer Joaquin costa. I loved the location, Joaquin Costa itself has a number of cool bars, stores and cafés. As for the apartment - it's true that the lobby and stairwell is pretty run down, exposed pipes, you can hear water rushing as your go up the stairs.

    The apartment itself is nicely decorated, and the main bedroom has a nice little balcony.

    The apartment is a little dark for my liking. There are some nice light fixtures and candle holders, but not all the bulbs work and there are no candles. The place is mainly lit up by a bunch of ikea lamps.

    About the bathroom, water does spill out of the shower and form a pool, but we put a towel down and so it didn't really bother us at all.

    All in all, location wise it's perfect and apartment wise, I think as long as you don't plan to spend a lot of time hanging out in the apartment, it's perfectly decent accommodations.

  • My husband and I stayed at Sonias apartment last week. When we arrived we called Sonia who said she would meet us at the apartment. After waiting for awhile we called her and she told us that the apartment wasn't ready, that her cleaning girl would meet us to let us in and drop our bags. We were taken to a different address around the corner then we expected to a building that had a dirty, smelly, falling apart lobby and a sketchy loud staircase.

    The apartment was not ready for our 2pm check in time. It looked like the other people had just left ( bed and couch a mess, dishes in sink, towels on the floor and mildew smell in the bathroom) We reluctantly left our bags and returned back a few hours later to find a cleaner apartment but still not up to par.

    The area is very close to the main touristy area, think of staying 2 blocks from Time Square in NYC. When the other reviewers said it was loud, that is an understatement. It sounds as it you are trying to sleep in a construction site, basketball game, dance club and fightclub! The noise does not stop until about 2:30am and starts again around 5am.

    The bathroom was a huge problem in it self. The shower is so small and water runs directly out of the shower onto the bathroom floor where there is no drainage. We had to turn the water on and off in between soaping up in order to not completely flood the bathroom. And still the floor was soaked the entire time making the SMELL of mildew unbearable in the bathroom.

    I tried to tell Sonia that we were displeased and she refused to reimburse us for one night which is what I was asking for. We ended up leaving 2 days early and checking into a hotel which was the same price and much cleaner and better area!

    If you don't care about very LOUD noise, very smelly, wet bathroom and the occasional roach in the kitchen, this is your spot!

    Response from Sonia:

    Esperaba el comentario negativo de Amanda, me pidió que le reembolsara el importe de una noche de alojamiento por haber llegado a las 2 pm y no haber encontrado el apartamento preparado;intento siempre que las horas de check in/out sean flexibles para tener contentos a todos y siento mucho no haber podido contentar a Amanda y que sea la primera vez que me pasa no es excusa!, Karen, la chica que me ayuda con la limpieza, estuvo las siguientes 3 horas limpiando y ahí no volvió nadie, imagino que ya estarían disfrutando de la ciudad. Siento mucho también que el barrio no le gustase, el centro histórico de Barcelona puede resultar demasiado "intenso" para algunos viajeros, por eso ruego que se informen bien antes de reservar sobre la zona en la que se encuentra este apartamento.Tengo otro situado en una zona más burguesa para otro perfil de viajero. Quien espere un barrio de ambiente aséptico, que se abstenga!, en el Raval hay mestizaje, sus edificios son los más antiguos de Barcelona, no siempre en las mejores condiciones de mantenimiento, casi ninguno tiene ascensor, pero no hay otra zona igual en Barcelona!; aquí se encuentra concentrada toda oferta cultural, con Universidades, calles llenas de estudiantes, talleres de artistas, y los bares y restaurantes más atractivos de la ciudad. Entiendo que Amanda se disgustó con el check in y a partir de ahí absolutamente todo le resultó insoportable.

  • The apartment has a great location in the middle of Raval district with short walking to everything. It is very well equipped and you have all you need for a short vacation. Sonia was a great host and helped us out with questions and met us when we arrived. All-in-all a very pleasant stay in Barcelona.

  • We like! Aparment is nice and location is great. Sonia was helpful host. Only bad thing was voices from street, but we understand that because apartment is right in the centre.
    I recommed!

About
He nacido en Barcelona y salvo pequeñas temporadas que he pasado viajando, esta ha sido siempre mi ciudad, presumo de conocerla en detalle y de ir descubriendo lugares nuevos, todo se mueve, todo cambia, para poder seguir manteniendo su esencia. Estoy encantada de poder facilitar la estancia a los viajeros más intrépidos que no se conforman con ser meros paseantes y quieren tomarle el pulso a la ciudad.
