Really awesome place to stay while in Barcelona, it's extremely central and perfect
for 3-5 people.
Joan was awesome and even helped us by picking us up at a nearby location (apartment is a little bit hard to find).
Thank you for everything, highly recommended!
Great apartment in an awesome location! Extremely close to Las Ramblas and I would stay here again!
For the price and location this is a fantastic apartment. I was struggling to find anywhere to stay in Barcelona during MWC and then stumbled across this on airbnb.
I was able to walk everywhere in the evenings and the metro is just around the corner.
Would definitely book again for next year.
Appartement très bien placé en plein cœur de Barcelone dans une rue piétonne animée ce qui entraine quelques nuisances sonores.
LOCATION!!! Hard to find a better spot to stay in Barcelona's old city - two minutes walk to Las Ramblas or the Cathedral; five up to Plaza Catalunya or ten down to the bottom of Las Ramblas. Not only is the apartment totally central, with two bedrooms and another sleeping area, but it is surprisingly quiet.
SHHhhhh... QUIET! The two bedrooms are silent and dark, and the living room/sleeping area was reasonable quiet as well, even with its lovely little balcony overlooking the action on Caller Portaferrissa. Reasons: the neighbours are quiet and there is no bar right near by (but many many within a short walk in any direction).
The quiet made for perfect sleeping for our baby and 4 year old, which is key for a young family when traveling (but maybe also for those intent on sleeping in after a night of partying? :)
The apartment is not fancy (it's exactly as you see it in the photos) - up two floors of narrow stairs, and basic, with simple furnishings, but the bathroom has a decent sized shower which is nice and hot. There's a little basin-type floor to it, which was deep enough to bathe our children in. The kitchen was fully stocked with lots of dishes, cutlery, pots and pans for cooking at home.
All in all, we were very happy with our stay, and we thank Joan and Fred for being immediately responsive and helpful in addressing all our needs.
Joan's house has a perfect location, in the heart of Barcelona!
very clean, comfortable and with a nice terrace on the way!
Joan was very friendly and helpful, would definitely go back and recommend it!
First of all, we received a very pleasant welcome. Joan is very friendly and explained us everything. There was a bottle of Cava in the fridge which was very nice as well. The location of the apartment in the middle of the shopping centre is amazing. Bedrooms, kitchen, living room all just fine. Bathroom could have a bit of renovation, as well as the shower curtain. Overall very satisfied.
Fantastic location! Close to metro and las ramblas, 15-20 minute walk from the Barceloneta beach. Joan is bound to give you a few useful tips if you're new to the area. Good pastries and coffee right next door. The studio is not exactly a luxury one, but pretty spacious and somewhat quiet as it is deeper into the street, which we liked.
A very well located apartment, on the Barceloneta-side of Bari Gotic, which are my two favorite places in Barcelona. It is large, clean, well equipped, good Internet connection. I wish the apartment had more sun light, but this is impossible in the narrow streets of Bari Gotic unless you are on the last floor. The communication with Joan and his friend Nico was excellent.
