Goed ontvangen, goeie briefing wat betreft de omgeving. Echt een lekker appartement met 3 heerlijke dakterrassen... Het dak terras geeft een mooi uitzicht. 1 nadeel;-) de trappen om er te komen is pittig maar na 2 dagen weet je niet beter haha De buurt was echt genieten heerlijke barretjes, restaurantjes en werkelijk alles op loopafstand. Lekker basic echt prima te doen.
Great place! Really enjoyed the sun terraces, and the location is really central so it suited us. Yoshi was very helpful also.
There are a number of steps to get to the apartment as it is on the 5th floor, so bear that in mind when booking.
So as a single father of 2 children, a boy 11 and a girl 13 when we went on our 20 day trip of a lifetime to Barcelona, accommodation was critical to our vacation success. We flew Lufthansa during the early part of the strike and when our flight from Frankfurt to Barcelona was cancelled due to strike action, our meet up date and time were changed. We were to meet up with my nephew (teaching in the Costa Brava area) and he was to stay with us........Enter Yoshi :) with a call to Yoshi, my nephew was given access to the Penthouse and waited for our arrival.
All pre vacation communication with Yoshi was clear, friendly and professional. The pictures found the air b&b site are accurate. during our vacation we rented this suite for 20 days. We spent 5 days driving through the South of France and kept Yoshis place on rental just in case. We stayed in some very nice places in France, we are also fortunate to live in a very beautiful place in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada, Yoshis Penthouse is as nice an experience as either. I can tell you this much for certain, Yoshis Penthouse is to me unique. The apartment is well appointed with what a family would need to thoroughly enjoy a family vacation. Aside from the apartment living up to all the advertised perks, here is why....
1. The Terraces provide not only relaxation but one of the most incredible views you will find in urban Barcelona.
2. The location is perfect with everything within reasonable walking distance you could imagine.
3. Jaune 1 (subway/underground) Metro station is one city block away from the front door. The Barcelona Metro is world class and makes it possible to get around affordably and efficiently.
4. Not once did I feel endangered during the day with my children or late in the evening walking alone. Of course I have lived in Cities before and take reasonable precautions.
5. .........And most important, Yoshi actually cares about your time spent in this apartment. Honestly, I had questions and concerns at the beginning and Yoshi addressed all our issues promptly inclusive of knowledge of the area and issues that arrive that have nothing to do with his rental.
During our 20 day rental, both my sister and brother were also in Barcelona on vacation. I had everyone over for a family dinner during Easter. Although they were happy with their Born area rentals they both have not stopped talking about the "Easter at the top of Barcelona".
If you are looking for a safe, unique, authentic Born area (best in Barcelona in my opinion) experience, rent Yoshis place and enjoy!
Thanks Yoshi :)

Wonderfull stay in the best area to explore in Barcelona,el Born.nice to relax at one of the three
rooftopterraces,but you need to take at least 107 steps to come there!
Yoshi is a very relaxed host,and I definitely come back at his place.
Wir hatten eine super Zeit im Penthouse mit den 3 Terassen! Über den Dächern von Barcelona - mittendrin und doch so ruhig.
Yoshi und Mily waren tolle Gastgeber, alles was wir brauchten war vorhanden und wenn wir Fragen hatten konnten wir uns jederzeit melden. Die Lage der Wohnung ist klasse, Metro um die Ecke - aber eigentlich ist mit ein paar Turnschuhen die Stadt super zu Fuß zu erlaufen!
DANKE für die ersten Frühlingstage dieses Jahres!
The apartment was beautiful and we had a lovely stay. The location was perfect, close to an old and charming part of Barcelona as well as being close to the sea, but the fact that the apartment is at the top of a large building meant that it wasn't loud at night and the views are breathtaking. We spent a lot of time on all of the terraces but the roof terrace was particularly stunning. We only Met Mily but she was friendly and helpful especially as we got lost on the way meaning she had to stand outside waiting for us but she was really kind and spotted us looking lost on the street before showing us up to the house. I would stay here again and reccomend it to anybody wanting to stay in a gorgeous part of Barcelona in a gorgeous house.
Yoshihisa tuli meitä vastaan, vaikka olimme etuajassa. Hän auttoi matkatavaroiden kantamisessa, mikä oli ystävällistä koska rappuja oli paljon. Huoneistossa oli karttoja ja esitteitä Barcelonasta, niistä oli apua. Isäntä selosti tarpeelliset asiat ja oli valmis auttamaan tarvittaessa.
L'appartement est parfaitement situé pour visiter Barcelone. Le quartier est des plus agréables sans être encombré de monde.
Nous avons bien profité du calme qu'offre cet appartement et de la vue à partir des terrasses (une vue qui se mérite après une ascension d'une centaine de marches)
Nous y avons été très bien accueillis par la compagne de Yoshi qui nous a donné de bons conseils d'endroits sympathiques dans le quartier.
En cette saison, l'appartement est un peu froid car peu isolé. Le confort y est sobre mais suffisant pour un court séjour, idéal sous le soleil (déjeuner ou prendre le soleil sur les terrasses)
Nous y sommes allés avec un enfant de 6 ans qui a été aussi ravi que nous.
hôte accueillant et souriant , nous ayant laisser à disposition les adresses et bon plans de Barcelone , rien à redire
It was great to be in this cosy place in a awesome area with a beautiful view on Barcelone; Thanks Yoshi !
Yoshi is a lovely person and great guest. I recommend him to everyone.
I have known Yoshi and Mily for over five years and have worked on several projects with Yoshi including art installations and catering events. Yoshi and Mily are a multi-lingual couple, comfortably fluent in English, Spanish, Catalan and Japanese. Both of them are very talented artists and are extremely well-connected within the Barcelona art community, always happy to recommend things you may not find in the guidebook. In addition, Yoshi is one of the best sushi chefs in Barcelona after years of honing his skills in Japan, the US and UK and with a propensity to enjoy a beverage, his knowledge of restaurants and bars in the down-town area, is second to none. All in all, a sensational couple who offer a mine of information, great hospitality and a different edge to Barcelona. I have no reservations in recommending them fully.
