About This Listing
We are a couple that used to travel around the world when we were young, now our way to travel…. staying home with my son… is to host people from around the world.
We offer a big and nice room in our flat, as you can see in the photos the room has your own and comfy bed, a big desk with a LCD screen so you can connect your laptop, big wardrobe, Wi-Fi and a sound system.
We don't have AC, but we have a big fan, and the room is very fresh.
Next door you will have your own bathroom, with a nice shower, no need to bring towels or shampoo we got it covered
You are more than welcome to use our kitchen, you can use the fridge to store food for breakfast, however we don't allow cooking due to a recent problem with a guest, we also have a cheap supermarket just around the corner. We also have washing machine and dryer in case you got dirty clothes. And of course you can join us on our living room to watch a movie or to read something.
One of the best things of this room is the location, you are in the center of Barcelona, everything is in walking distance, and is a safe and quiet neighbourhood. All major attractions are just 10 minutes away, you can check it out on (website hidden) maps, the street is carrer del bruc.
In case you want to visit other parts of the city such as the beach or Plaza España, we are just 5 minutes away from the metro station that covers the main lines, plaza Urquinaona and plaza Catalunya.
Also since we are born and raised in Barcelona we can give you all kind of hints of the best places in Barcelona, our favourite restaurants, and how to avoid tourist traps, also our son can tell you the best bars and nightclubs in the city
We can’t wait to welcome you, you will feel like home
TESSA & MIGUEL
My hosts were not there when I arrived and I found out afterwards that they were away for the weekend. I was shown my room and the bathroom with a peek at the kitchen and that was it. Not a very good start or full welcome. I felt that I did not stay in the place that was advertised, not even being shown or welcomed into the living area as in the advertised picture.
As much as I appreciate the feedback i don't think is the right time to do it, if you were having an uncomfortable experience you should have expressed this feeling during your stay not after, because now nothing can be done.
I'm sure you understand that we aren't robots and this is not our full time job, this means we can't be all the time at our home, emergencies occur as I'm sure it also has happened in your life, and if my parents request my help during the weekend I must help them, this is why i couldn't be at home during the weekend.
As I said, a simple message during your stay explaining what was wrong, could have gone a long way in making your stay more comfortable.
Perfect location to explore most of the major attractions in Barcelona. 5 mins walk to metro and 15 mins walk to catch aerobus to airport( most convenient and cost effective method).
Absolute privacy cos the room and my own bathroom is separated from Tessa's family living area. All amenities are provided including Barcelona lonely planet guidebook, which I have used extensively.
Bathroom amenities are taken care of no worries.
And most importantly, Tessa is such a warmth host, making sure I familiarise with the place and got what I needed.She even helped me to post back my belongings which I left at her place. I would recommend this place again.
Tessa and her family were very friendly and willing to hang out and chat. The apartment was clean, the room private and quiet, just as described. The apartment has a perfect central location - easy walking distance to the major sights.
I stayed for 10 nights with Tessa and her family (her husband and two sons). They were very kind, friendly and respectful of my privacy. Moreover, they gave me immediate and nice responses when I asked something and requested help. Location is good and many attractions are within walking distance : Barri Gothic/El Born/Passeig de Gracia/Sagrada Familia within 15-30 mins & Barceloneta/Gracia/Placa de Espanya within 1 hr. Private room was very quiet and well equiped. Free WIFI also worked very well in the room. Private bathroom was clean and had a shower with powerful water pressure. FYI, both are not lockable. I was comfortable and happy with the family. Highly recommend it.
