The apartment was perfect - just as described and pictured, with the additon of ambience and security. The welcoming and help with our luggage was very much appreciated as was the advice on where to eat and what to see. Instructions for the use of appliances, maps and guides for touristic events and the overall attention to comfort and relacation were provided without any sense of intrusion. The location was perfect for food, culture and history. Thankyou for a wonderful stay and we hope to visit again soon.

Very nice apartment, clean and well cared for in detail. Also it is very close to the center of Vitoria and to all available services. The kindness and courtesy of Yolanda complement the stay which was really great for us.

Yolanda and Mikel were excellent hosts giving us tips for the best restaurants and pintxos in Vitoria and giving us lots of advice for drives into the Rioja region. The apartment is compact but has everything you'd need for 2 people. Ideally it's situated near a strip of bars in the old town. Parking is restricted but Yolanda gave us some good advice and we easily found free parking about 10 minutes walk away. Once we arrived in Vitoria you can easily get around on foot. I would definitely recommend staying here.

We had a fantastic time staying at Yolanda & Mikel's studio, and would highly recommend this listing to anyone looking in Vitoria! It was city center (but quiet in the evenings) so walking around for sightseeing, eating and drinking was a dream. It was also a great home base if you plan to visit Rioja, Bilbao, San Sebastien. Yolanda was great with communication before and during our stay, with suggestions to wineries, restaurants, and personal stories about Basque life and culture. We even saw Mikel on the street on his way to work and he greeted us like we were locals, which we got a kicked out of :) Highlights - Shower has great pressure which is a must anywhere, they have an easy-to-use washer and since we stayed a wk that was critical, Lopez de Heredia tour, Yolanda helped set up a tour at Bodegas Bhilar (new winery months away from opening to the public), Restaurante El Clarete (10 course menu), La Torre de Anda (pintxos bar) where you're treated like family. While we have visited Spain before, this was our first time in the Basque Country and the experience that Y & M gave us is what all AirBnB should strive for - We indeed felt welcomed home!

We were very warmly and graciously greeted by Mikel - we met Yolanda the next day - who showed us the studio and explained everything we needed to know. The only phrase I can use to adequately describe the studio is 'exceptionally high standard'. Although we're quite new to Airbnb, and we've been really pleased with our past bookings, this one really sets itself above all the others. The hosts, both English speaking, were very easy to communicate with and they are very thoughtful. This is obvious when you see just what the studio provides. Every detail of every convenience has been well thought out. They even offer - for a very reasonable price - a private supper club in their home! We didn't have time to take up this offer but it's definitely on our list for our next visit. The warmth and friendliness of the hosts pervade the studio, giving it a wonderful atmosphere from the moment you step into the shared hallway. Although living so close might seem a little intrusive, I can assure you it wasn't at all. The studio is very private, with its own 'lockable' door. We used the information folder provided to try out some places to eat and drink and we would highly recommend you use it too. As already stated this is an exceptional Airbnb rental and the credit goes to the wonderful hosts Yolanda and Mikel. We highly recommend this as a fantastic place to stay. It's the best we've been to. Thanks again Yolanda and Mikel, we look forward to seeing you again when we return to further explore your beautiful city.

We received a warm and helpful welcome to this perfectly located apartment. Our hosts were happy to provide whatever information we needed whilst at the same time allowing us our own privacy to enjoy the comforts provided. We appreciated the effort that had been taken to make the space feel personal and homely - not just a rental space. Sitting on the little glass enclosed balcony was a pleasure. Our only criticism is that as we had 2 fairly large suitcases there was only space to store them between the sofa and TV. Not a huge issue and if we'd smaller cases they could have gone under the bed or hanging rail unit. Just a few minutes walk to the main squares and plenty of places to eat. Definitely recommed staying here, as we would love to again.

Yolanda User ProfileYolanda is a superhost.

We are an easygoing, friendly couple from Vitoria, in the heart of the Basque Country. Mikel has lived here all his life so he has an in-depth knowledge of the town and the rest of the Basque Country and is very happy to share tips about the area. Yolanda spent most of her 20s and 30s travelling around the world and living mostly in London and Barcelona. She's very happy to be back home but still enjoys travelling and meeting new people.
Mikel is a doctor and works at the local hospital and Yolanda is a wine journalist. We are avid urban bike users and sympathise with the Slow Movement.
We both love food, wine (ask us about Rioja!), watching films and spending time with friends and family.
