Minerva and her mother were fantastic. I had detailed instructions and suggestions to get to the apartment and around Barcelona, and Kitty (her mother) met us at the apartment to let us in. She had croissants waiting for us which was very nice!
The apartment itself is beautiful. Open concept, plenty of natural light, and a wonderful crossbreeze with both balconies open. It was clean and spacious and everything you'd want. It's also in a real neighbourhood - kids playing soccer, families doing their thing. You get the real experience (though if you're a light sleeper, ear plugs may be useful, just because it is a neighbourhood and noise carries into the night - I think because Spain just eats late :) ) It is up 6 flights of stairs, but with all the delicious food you'll be eating, it's good exercise! (considering the pinxo and tapas places less than a block away ... needed!)
I loved the location - 20-30 minute walk tops to anything, but a metro 5 minutes away as well.
No complaints - everything was great! I would stay here again.
The stay in Minerva's flat was great! The area was lively, location outstanding and the flat very beautiful. The host was very helpful and informative and the place spotless.
The only trouble we had was finding the correct floor on arrival, since we didn't spot the texts in the ceiling (and the counting system, well, its not the same as in Finland ;) ) . The only improvement I would suggest is getting a large mirror so the guest heading to see sights could take a peak of her mirror image...
We also loved the pintxos restaurants down the street, so handy and so good!
Definitely would recommend and return myself! Thank you so much!!
Бронировала квартиру для своих родителей. Квартира расположена недалеко от Rambla, также недалеко площадь Испании. Квартира очень большая, чистая, со всем необходимым. В ней спокойно можно жить вчетвером. Minevra очень хорошо рассказала, как найти квартиру, а ее мама показала все, что расположено в самой квартире.
Рекомендую всем компаниям бронировать эту квартиру.
The apartment location is great, close to Las Ramblas but not that noisy and without the crowds. It's close to the subway station and supermarket. The apartment itself is very comfortable and exactly as is appears in photos, kitchen is fully functioning. No problem with hot water or anything else.
Minerva and her mother are wonderful hosts, helped us a lot with local tips. Definitely recommend this place !!!
It was a wonderful vacation! The apartment is wonderful, big and comfortable! The apartment has everything you need - dishes, linens, very comfortable bed and a shower. Nearby, just down the street, there is a wonderful tapas bar - Pincho J, as well as a big supermarket. Comfortable walking area and close to the center.
Kitty (mother Minerva) was very hospitable and friendly) Many thanks to her!
We're still happy to come to Barcelona and be sure to stay in the apartment Minerva!
We had a really nice stay in Minervas' apartment! The flat is really beautiful and clean. We were provided with everything we needed (kitchen equipment, towels, etc.).
We really enjoyed our visit to Barcelona and highly recommend this apartment!!!
Also we would like to say thanks again to Minerva and Kitty, who have been really nice and courteous!!!
Great place to stay. We haven't met Minerva in person as she was traveling but her mother Kitty has welcomed us with warmth and made our stay pleasant at this lovely apartment.
Perfect place to stay in Barcelona if you don't mind going up 5 floors everyday. Location is excellent and apartment itself is very well maintained.
Minerva was a perferct host. She gave us the direction to the flat timely. The flat is beautyful and very clean. The location of the flat was great, right next to nice Tapas Bars and Shops in a quiet side street.
We had a wonderful time in Barcelona and we would like to say thanks to Minerva for the amazing stay.
tolle lage, hübsches haus, wunderschönes appartment
An amazing stay in Minerva's place!! Kitty was very nice to welcome us and understanding for the checking out quiet late in the day. The appartement is beautiful, decorating with lovely taste, and with everything we needed. The neighborhood is also great, calm but living, with the center very close by walk. We really enjoy our days in Barcelona and we will come back in Minerva's appartement with pleasure, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Lovely guests who took excellent care if the place. Highly recommend.
It was a wonderful experience hosting Minerva and Miquel. they were very courteous and neat and tidy. Very easy to speak with and very friendly. I would not hesitate to host them again.
very nice guest
Minerva and her partner were great guests. I would recommend to any host. They are welcome back here anytime. Thanks for staying!
What a nice couple Minerva and Miguel were. We had great conversations and they we a pleasure to have stay. Minerva even took her first scubadive with Mac on the GBR. Well done Minerva ! Would recommend them as guest to stay for sure. Avy and Mac
Minerva and her partner only stayed with me for a short stop. I was extremely sad to only know them briefly. They are very warm, humble and interesting people. They seem to be very easy going and from a host perspective I would highly recommend. They are the 'perfect' guests; clean, friendly and not noisy.
Minerva and her husband were easy going and immaculately clean, the perfect guest. Welcome anytime!
Great experience with Minerva and her boyfriend, Miguel. I totally recommend them! Lovely and careful couple.
Minerva and Miguel are very friendly, attentive and quiet. At breakfast we had short but nice conversations about books and... children. With regard to children, it was interesting to note that we share the same ideas. Interested in our city and our culture, Minerva learned how to dance “samba”!!!! It was very good to have them with us.
Minerva and her husband were fine guests. We barely saw them, as they only had two days in Salvador and took advantage of what time they had to see the city. They were very pleasant and respectful, and I'm sorry they couldn't stay longer.
I've known Minerva and her husband Miguel for 5-6 years now. They are two of the nicest, most inspiring, and most trustworthy people I know. They helped me start my business ((website hidden)), doing everything from helping me come up with the name, to designing the website, choosing the colors, the logo, etc.. Minerva is always willing to help out with anything at any time, a great person and friend, and very generous with her time. They were such gracious hosts to me when I went to their wedding in Ibiza, one of the best weddings I've been to! Thanks, Minerva and Miguel for being such awesome friends. I would definitely travel with either of you, host either of you at my house, or stay in your house without any worries at all (by the way, their apartment in Barcelona is really nice, quaint, well-designed, comfortable, and in a great area).
