  • I had the pleasure to meet Stephanos and his apartment. All was great, the flat covered what any traveller is looking for when staying in Barcelona. The flat is close to the tubes, green line, red line. Walking distance to the Ramblas (Raval and the well known Ramblas where the Boqueria market is), walking distance to the Example, Sant Antoni Market and to the sea area (Port of Barcelona).There are loads of supermarkets nearby and theatres too (Paralel, Liceo areas). The location is great. The flat has two clean bedrooms, the mattresses are comfortable. The kitchen, bathroom and living room have all we need. The terrace being in the second floor has its own charm, fully decorated making it so pleasant to have dinner outside. Stephanos helped me with the luggage and with all the indication on where I was and how to move to take shortcuts in the city. Great experience, all went as expected and more. I will definitely recommend Sant Pacia´s flat.

  • Arrivés un peu en retard sur Barcelone, Stéphane s'est montré très compréhensif et est venu à notre rencontre pour nous remettre les clés.
    L'appart est bien situé, propre, bien équipé, avec une terrasse très agréable... J'ai apprécié le petit carnet de bonnes adresses et ses conseils pour bien profiter de la ville.
    Seul petit bémol, l'entrée de l'immeuble qui sent un peu ( pas l'appart, ouf ) et le chauffe eau situé à l'extérieur qui peut s'éteindre à cause du vent ( nous avions été prévenus, facile à remettre en marche )
    Nous avons eu un soucis d'électricité durant le séjour, heureusement résolu rapidement. Stéphane est ma fois très réactif.
    Je recommande.

  • First thing to say is, that Stephane is a pleasant and obliging host. We had a nice stay in his apartment. It is well equipped with really everything you need, even a small "library". The terrace is facing to the backyard, but quite enjoyable. We were four people and the apartment was spacious enough, although there was water damage in one of the rooms. That was a pity but not Stephanes fault, he did everything to fix it until our arrival. The neighborhood is typical for El Raval, very vivid and multicultural. The apartment is near to the Ramblas del Raval with good and cheap restaurants (e. g. Guixot, very good salads and bocadillos) and nice bars (one of the best gin bars in BCN is nearby, the Ultramarinos). I would recommend a stay!

  • The flat is great, spacious, bright and is as appeared in the photos.
    Our host was courteous and helpful.
    Outside the flat, the staircase is not as good: the walls are old and need of repair, and there is a strong smell at night.
    Again, in the flat you don't experience any of that, so take into account as the price of the flat rental is low.

    5 hours after our check-in, while we were out of the flat,
    THE FLAT WAS BROKEN INTO,
    and so was the flat across the hall.
    MOST OF OUR BELONGINGS WERE STOLEN.

    Stephane, the host, was the one to call us and call the police. In the following days he was very helpful by guiding us, taking us to the police to fill out forms and generally being very kind.

    We, Stephane and AirBNB are now in the middle of a process regarding getting some money that Stephane has gotten from his insurance (a fraction of the value of the goods stolen).
    I cannot yet report on the outcome of these proceedings since they are not over, and AirBNB has a 30 day maximum period in which we can write a review. Until now we had not yet received this money from the host Stephane.
    If you are interested in the outcome of these proceedings, please contact me privately.

    To sum up, we had a bad experience that has nothing to do with the host, but we did feel it was right of us to pass the information on this incident so that others will know. Also, the review of the host's behavior is not complete until we receive the insurance money he promised to pass.

  • Très bon séjour à Barcelone

  • The flat is nice and the best thing is the balcony. You are next to the Ramblas and a lot of sights. Raval is a cool area where you can experience the "real" Barcelona without much tourism. Affordable and good tapas bars included. The only thing: when we were there a room had a leak in the roof and some water drops were constantly dropping. So one room was not in a good condition. The rest was ok. Thanks for the nice welcoming and good tips!

  • Un appartement sympa dans un quartier typique. Séjour excellent. L'appartement se présente exactement comme décrit et montré sur les photos. Proche de tous: la station métro, des boulangeries, restaurants, supermarchés ... Check-in et check-out bien organisés. Très bon séjour à Barcelone.

  • Séjour très agréable chez Vanina ! L'appartement était propre et très bien situé, parfait pour visiter Barcelone !

  • Nice flat, we had a very nice experience. It was quite clean, the rooms are large and the terrace is a plus. Good quality/price ratio.
    At our arrival, Vanina and her boyfriend were kind with us, even if we have been waiting for two hours before getting the keys of the flat as they were working. But it was not a problem for us, it can happen.
    But on the contrary, at our departure, Vanina has been rude as we left the flat at 12.45am instead of 12.00am. She was rude on the phone with me and, before we could take our luggage away from the flat, she let the new guests enter the flat while we were still in there.
    It was a bad ending of an overall good experience.
