Wonderful place in Barcelona! I never got the chance to meet Zara as she was not available.
We were checked in by Alex, who was lovely and was very helpful. The room was beautiful and everything you need was provided.
It is a perfect area to say in Barcelona as everything is either in walking distances or a short taxi away. It is also nice for solo travels as there are other travels staying that you can meet up with.
Had a wonderful time and would come back!
We never met Zara, but she was in constant contact via email with us and always responded almost immediately!
Alex greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the beautiful aprartment. He was friendly and helpful and even allowed us to through in a couple of items with his own laundry. I had a few early morning chats with him, which is what I most treasure with a bnb: home-like comfort and conversation. he was super flexible in allowing us to leave our bags and pick them up whenever on our last day.
The room is exactly as desribed. The bed was quite comfortable. We had lots of space and a lovely view of the street for people watching. Because the street (any city street) can be noisy, the host included a fan for white noise and earplugs for our use (we did not need them). There was also a list of restaurants in the room with locations and descriptions to help get you started. The tapas place across the street is reasonably priced and delicious! If you did not do much research ahead of time, use one of the many resources in the common area near the kitchen. Wifi also worked best in the kitchen.
Everything else about the apartment was wonderful. There were croissants, coffee and tea, help yourself style, for breakfast. Two full bathrooms, sharing was never an issue, a sunroom and dining area for relaxing. Everything was clean and in great working order.
The location of the apartment is excellent. Two blocks from La Rambla, two blocks from Passeig de Gracia and a metro stop. I recommend walking everywhere because you can see and experience so much more that way. But, if you need the metro, you can easily navigate home.
Everything about this space, Alex, the room, the location, were excellent. Lots of small considerations made for guests.
I was not sure about my time of arrival, which was difficult to manage for Zara, but she finally managed to get me the key and let me in. When I came in the room was not ready, but her friend managed to make the bed. However, the room and the bathroom were not cleaned.
I always ask guests for their flight/arrival information after booking to be able to plan the check-ins in advance. Unfortunately Maarten could not give me a specific arrival time until the same afternoon and actually arrived an hour early. These last minute arrangements meant that the check-in was not as well-coordinated as usual. A bit of a one-off situation which highlights the importance of telling hosts your arrival information in advance, as we have to plan work and personal schedules around check-ins.
Alex was at the apartment to meet me, picture true to review and the location is brilliant
Nice room in a nice apartment. Everything we needed was there. Like other reviewers said, there's a lot of street noise in the room, but although used to silence we could sleep very well and without earplugs in the comfy bed. Recommended!
Our experience in Zara's Graffiti room was great. (Even though we didn't actually meet Zara)
We were greeted by Alex who was friendly and helpful; the room was clean and spacious; the bed was comfortable.
The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. Everything is nice and clean. Also, the positioning is perfect! You can walk to pretty much all important touristic attractions in town. (We did. Bought a 10 journey transportation ticket and only managed to use 6 of them in 4 days - 3 each) This is in fact the biggest asset of the apartment.
The only rather negative things we could point out are the poor Wi-Fi signal in the room (it was fine in the kitchen though) and the noise coming from the street (but that wasn't that much of an issue since we always went to bed exhausted).
Overall a really positive experience, great deal considering the location. Would surely come back next time we're in Barcelona.
The room is very nice and clean. Very recommend. The location is very convenient, and it is near the metro station and many cafes or bars. It is located near some tourist places. But only a small pity is the balcony faced to a bar, which is a little noise at night.
