I had just finished working in Barcelona and needed a place for a few days to spend with my girl to kick off our holiday. I could not have picked a better place to start our adventure in Spain. This flat is beautiful - Sean showed us around, gave us some history on the craftsmanship of the building and the designs found throughout and he even taught me how to make a little Catalonian snack. They provided some nice coffee, baguettes, jambon, and some fresh tomatoes from the market (among other amenities). We also got to meet Francis, who showed us more details in the various rooms in the flat. Both Sean and Francis were very generous with their time and spirit, and they took great pride in being hosts, going well above and beyond. I hope we get to stay here again next time we are in Barcelona, this was a very special place to us. Can't recommend enough. So comfortable and so photogenic.
In our opinion, this was the ideal place to stay in Barcelona. First, the apartment itself - the facade is a gorgeous example of Catalan Modernism (built in 1907), and on the inside reveals itself as an elegant, creative timepiece with several unique touches. You'll immediately notice the silk tapestries on the walls, the detailed ceiling work, and the beautiful floors. It is also decorated with an astute eye for color coordination and a flair for the unexpected.
Second, the Carbonell family welcomed us with open arms, and they are, by far, the warmest, liveliest group we have ever encountered on Airbnb. A Hollywood movie was being filmed in their area of the apartment (one of many movies filmed there), and every time we returned home from sightseeing or meals, the Carbonells waived us over to reveal new developments with the movie or the expected arrivals of the cast. And while the two apartments are completely separate and spacious, they let us know that we were welcome on their side anytime - an area which included a beautiful outdoor garden and pool area.
Finally, the location. For those seeking a slight removal from the madness of Las Ramblas, this is perfect. Located a few neighborhoods away from the areas bustling with tourists, this apartment is also positioned directly above one of the handiest metro stops in Barcelona - you can quickly be taken to Las Ramblas, the Gothic Quarter, or the beach. Overall, we highly recommend this apartment. What a great experience, and a big thank you to the Carbonells for having us!
Un lugar increíble. Volveremos cada vez que viajemos a Barcelona, si es posible.
Una casa con mucho gusto, historia y ¡unos anfitriones maravillosos!
Absolutely amazing apartment! My wife and I were speechless. Perfect location for getting in and about Barcelona, close to all public transport and only a few Euros if by taxi.
Plenty of near by shops etc.
The host family were really nice and made us feel very comfortable and gave good advice on where to go.
Would advise all to stay here!
We had a fantastic stay at Sean's place - beautiful, very spacious apartment, all the necessary equipment etc. and Sean and his family were the perfect hosts, devoting a lot of their time to making certain we had all we needed and making our trip memorable.
Sean and his family were extremely welcoming! We had a great time in this amazing apartment. I will be coming back here for sure. Close walk to great shops, sites, and food.
