Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Alpha was super nice and the room was central to everything we needed to do and see. The room and the apt. leans towards the artistic side of things which we liked. Her boyfriend was super cool and pointed us in the right direction for a night of Flamenco and was a pleasure to chat with. Nice experience overall.

  • We spent a good time in Alpha's flat. Especially she recommended us a lot delicious food. You can easily to find how to play and how to eat in her play list in Barcelona. The only thing is that you need to prepare sauce for cooking.

  • Alpha's Room was perfect for me, i loved it there. It's perfect located to visit this great city and you have a great host too :) I can recommend it and i'm sure i will stay there again. Very clean by the way too.

  • we had a really good time at Alpha's ! the room is really clean, and you've got all you need. the quarter is an ideal place if you want to leave away from the rush of the historic place, and not far away, 20 min walk, crossing the Raval full of restaurants :)
    only one regret, we havn't seet Alpha a lot, but she'is full of nice advices ! a nice place to stay, try it : you'll enjoy for sure :)

  • Alpha's crib is nice cosy and clean. She is a very kind and helpful hostice and we had a great time there partially by Alpha and her appartment. Alpha is very open for questions and will recommend you great stuff in Barcelona you won't find on the internet or travelbooks. Her house is situated in the city center of Barcelona and walking distance (around 10 minutes) from the Ramblas and the trainstation Barcelona Sants. Highly recommended if you don't mind not having a couple of housemates (we did have a private room). Enjoy your stay, we did!

  • The best about the room is the perfect location and very kind hosts. Although we didnt see each other too often Alpha and Fran were always ready to chat, answer any qestions, or help in other way. Apartament is in great location away from the crowded touristy center, so you can find lots of shops and bars for locals there (the language might be a slight problem prepare basic dictionary when going eating, or order what others do :), 5 min walk to two different lines of metro, and 10 minutes or less to narrow streets of old town or pl.Espanya.
    The room itself is small, but clean. Its dark thou, it has a window but facing inside "yard"of the building, all you see is walls, unless you look high up, then you can check weather the sky is bright.
    Apart from that its good, so if you dont want to spend too much time in the room, its perfect.

    October 2013
  • We had a great time in Barcelona, thanks largely to Alpha's hospitality, knowledge of the city and overall helpfulness. She even got roped into giving us lots of great tips for our incoming wedding in the area.
    I wouldn't hesitate to stay with Alpha again in the future.

    October 2013
  • Alpha is a very nice and pleasant host, she was waiting for us in the middle of a night after we came much later than we should, she gave us all necessary information about Barcelona. The place is perfectly located in a quite area but at the same time not far away from the center. It was a great experience and we're definitely recommend everyone to stay at Alpha's place!

    October 2013
  • actually i rented this apartement for a friend.
    he was absolutely haooy with it.
    it was clean, the host was nice. so there is absolutely nothing bad to mention.
    would book again and again...
    the area is very central, so close to almost everything.

    catch you again...

  • Definitely recommend to stay in Alpha`s apartment. Alpha and her roommates were very friendly, helpful and modest. The apartment is situated in perfect location (3 different metro lines reachable in 10 min on foot and La Rambla in 20). The flat itself is clean and very cozy and you would have your own bathroom.

    Perfect choice for your stay in BCN!
