  • Juan is such a nice host!
    He was a friendly, kind and easy-going host.
    He recommended every nice spot in Barcelona and checked it on the map for us. It was really helpful during our trip. He even brought us to watch football games and it was real fun, thank you Juan! :)
    His home was cozy, neat and he made us feel it's just like my home. And it's close to beautiful beach, so you can enjoy Barcelona' beach any time.
    I'd like to stay in his home again.
    Thanks for everything, Juan!

  • Juan es muy majo y ordendado, el piso está siempre limpio y recogido.

    He alquilado la habitacion para mi familia que ha estado en Barcelona de visita, han estado a gusto en el piso.

    Tenian un poco de "miedo" al principio porque estan acostumbrado a ir en hotel, pero la experiencia ha sido positiva.

    Probable volveremos a reservar la habitacion en futuro.

  • Juan is as good a host that you can expect. Communication was brilliant right from the booking time till we left the apartment. He was very helpful with explaining the best way to do things in Barcelona and also helped us buy tickets online to avoid waiting in queues. His recommendations for food were awesome and I highly recommend to try them, especially Chitaco which is right around the corner from apartment (don't miss their Sangria) and Bar lobo by Ramblas for nice tapas. Juan also was friendly enough to take us to probably the best place in town to watch the world cup football games and then hung out with us for late night bites.
    The apartment is very conveniently located and you can walk to most places without actually liVing in the hustle and bustle of The off town. The room was well set up and the whole place was really nice. Juan gave me a lot of tips on being a good host which I intend to start soon.

    I highly recommend Juan's place to anyone visiting Barcelona

  • Apartment Juan completely corresponds to the description and photographs. It is in a nice house, beautiful, clean and comfortable. The location is very good, near a beautiful Park and within walking distance from the Old town. Juan very helpful and friendly owner, attentive to details.
    He is always ready to come to you for help and answer your questions. In the beginning of our visit he told about interesting places of Barcelona, which are worth visiting and the wonderful places where you can eat.
    We are very grateful to him!
    I recommend you to choose the apartment Juan, I am sure you all will like it!

  • Juan was simply an amazing host giving us so much information on the city, we were unable to see all of his "hot spots". We realized we need to spend more than 3 days in beautiful Barcelona. Nevertheless without Juan's help much of the city would have been unseen. He was a great host and has a great place that was clean and conveniently located! Also the rooftop terrace with 360 views of the city was amazing!

  • Juan is the perfect host. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Great location, very clean and safe. Juan was also extremely helpful when we first arrived. He pointed out all his favourite spots for food and a list of things to do and how to get to them. He definitely went above and beyond. I highly recommended staying at Juan's place.

    Aw thanks for such a lovely review, glad you really enjoyed the stay, I really hope you guys get a chance to come visit again!

  • Juan est un hôte fantastique!
    Il est vraiment sympathique, gentil et très serviable. On s'est tout de suite senti très bien chez lui, un peu comme si on venait rendre visite à quelqu'un qu'on connait et qui est très content de nous recevoir.
    Dès notre arrivée, il a passé une heure avec nous pour nous donner pleins de bonnes infos sur la ville, les bonnes adresses, les tuyaux qui font gagner du temps et de l'argent, etc. Par la suite, il a toujours été disponible pour répondre à nos questions.
    L'appartement est agréable, bien situé (à proximité d'un parc agréable et à 10-15 min à pied du centre historique). Il est aussi très propre. Bref, rien à redire là dessus. La chambre n'est pas très grande, mais on a pu utiliser le reste de l'appartement comme on voulait. Et si vous voulez une grande pièce rien que pour vous, il y a une deuxième chambre disponible dans l'appartement qui est plus grande que celle qu'on a louée.
    En conclusion, je vous recommande d'aller chez Juan si vous voulez vivre une bonne expérience airBn'B à Barcelone.

  • Juan was a great host. He waited for us for approximately an hour due to an inconvenience we had, and he offered his assistance. He provided us with a map and suggested places to visit and to eat. His home is very nice, clean and has a nice energy. Juan is very easy going, helpful and positive. He responded to our request in a timely manner, and replied to our messages very quickly. His house is in a perfect location. Close to the city center.

  • Juan gave a good rundown of the the area, resturants and general tourist information. The room in the flat was comfortable and the share bathroom was clean with all the amenities. I would stay there again and recommend it to my friends. Kind regards, Howard

About
Hi there! I'm Juan... a cheerful, friendly, and organised guy. I love to meet new people, help them, and also learn from them. For the last 14 years I have had the good fortune to travel around the world for work, fun, and studies. I have lived in different cities including London, Paris and Madrid. My main passion is traveling and enjoying new and different cultures. I have a dream to one day live in Japan for a good period of time and also to embrace India. I like meditation and enjoy the simplicity of life. I have always greatly appreciated the cleanliness and order in places where I have travelled. Because of this I like to offer the same to my guests. I have hosted my family, many friends, friends of friends, and many wonderful Airbnb guests. I really enjoy showing people around the city, especially to places that travellers often don't know about. Barcelona is an endless and fantastic city, and I would welcome you to visit. --------- Soy alegre, organizado, me gusta la meditacion, ayudar a la gente y aprender de todos un poco.

Siempre he valorado mucho la limpieza y el orden en los lugares donde he podido viajar por eso me gusta ofrecer lo mismo. Mi principal hobbie es viajar y disfrutar de nuevas y diferentes culturas. Uno de mis sueños es vivir un tiempo en Japón y poder conocer desde dentro la India. He tenido la suerte de hospedar a familiares, muchos amigos y amigos de amigos, con los que he podido disfrutar de tours por Barcelona, visitar lugares de los que no siempre los turistas tienen conocimiemto, Barcelona es infinita y maravillosa. -------------- Je suis amical, organisé, je pratique la méditation, j´aime aider les gens et apprendre d´eux.
