  • This was a very lovely place to stay. Not only the room and the appartment were great, but also the owner Jerome was very nice !
    The flat is situated in a nice building with elevator. The room is at the back of the appartment, and you have a little privat balcony. It's very quiet here.
    Jerome gave us very usefull tips to visit Barcelona, and is a great host. He made us feel very welcome at his appartment.
    If you're visiting Barcelona, i would recommend this location !!

  • The flat was amazing and the bedroom even more cozy than on the pictures. I was a bit nervous because it was my first AirBnb experience, but Jerome is really nice, and made me feel at home right away. He went skiing so I had the apartment for my self the whole weekend, but he was available on phone all of the time, checking everything was alright. The bed is really comfy and I had breakfast on the balcony every morning (in february!)

    The apartment is really central, but surprisingly quiet (I am a light sleeper). Just around the corner you have really good restaurant, bars, shops. ATM just outside the door. The Aerobus stop and subway is less than 100 meters away. And a local bus takes you straight to Parc Guell (no 24).

    As a pattern designer I fell immediately in love with the different tile floors even if some pieces where missing.

    Everything was clean, and I really liked that I could make my own breakfast (grocery store is just a 4 minutes walk away).
    Do not hesitate! Thank you Jerome, I would love to come back.

  • Jerome's appartment is situated very centrally: One you arrive at the airport, you only need to take the Aerobus, which stops almost in front of the house; and most sights in Barcelona can be reached on foot from Jerome's place. Despite that, the appartment is very calm. Jerome is a great host and gave us many recommendations for going out that he adapted to our interests. We firmly recommend his place to any traveller, even those who prefer not sharing a place with the host, since the room we stayed in had a bathroom ensuite and its own balcony.

  • The apartment is really beautiful, centrally located and quiet. It's worth mentioning that the bedroom has its own bathroom, so you do not need to share. Jerome is a great and fun host and always helped with recommendations where to eat out or what to explore. I can highly recommend this place to any traveller.

  • We had a wonderful experience staying with Jerome and hope to see him again sometime. Yes, the location is very convenient, and yes, his apartment is very nice. Having our very own bathroom directly connected to our bedroom was a rare luxury. Jerome's apartment is very quiet, opening onto the courtyard of the complex instead of the middle of the street.
    However, what made the experience 5-stars was Jerome himself. He was very helpful with everything, and patient when I seemed unresponsive (because of cellphone difficulty) to his texts coordinating our arrival. We like to do some non-touristy things, and with Jerome's help spent an evening listening to live Cuban music at a little club where people were nice and we seemed to be the only non-locals there. We liked sharing the apartment with Jerome so we got to spend time with him. And, since it's only a 2-bedroom apartment, we also enjoyed some quiet time while he was away at work or having fun.

  • The apartment is in a fantastic location!
    the room is very big and very quiet so you can enjoy it and have a good sleep after a day trip or a fun night :)
    Jerome hosted me very nicely in his well designed apartment that has its unique vibe.

  • Jerome's flat is truly impressive and situated beautifully in Barcelona. Located in Eixample, but still very near old town, I was able to access the city on foot, or by the Metro. My stay included site-seeing, museum visits, shopping and afternoons on the beach. This flat was perfectly situated to do them all.

    The flat is well-represented by the pictures--classically beautiful, comfortable and clean. Staying here, I felt more a part of the city and less like a tourist. I also felt safe and secure.

    Jerome is a delightful host--very friendly and easy to talk to, and very helpful. He generously shared his living space and his kitchen in addition to the room and bath. I was very pleased with this experience.

  • Jérôme is a nice and friendly guy. He left for the weekend but we could always phone or sms him .Very good, central location on the busy "Gran Via" but the room is at the back and very quite. Private bathroom .

  • My husband and I were using airbnb as the first time. We feel extremely happy and grateful of our stayed at Jerome's place. We will never hesitate to stay at his place next time when we are back in Barcelona.
    Great flat, great room, great location and great host!
