I live in Barcelona, I work for an ecommerce company, (website hidden). I travel several times during the year and I think airbnb is a great idea.
We had a great time at Alejandro's apartment! It was bright, airy and convenient to everything. The metro is steps away, and the view of the Sagrada Familia from the apartment is amazing! My daughter and I only wish we had more time to use the wonderful kitchen and beautiful patio.
The host canceled my reservation 29 days before arrival.
I cannot say enough great things about this apartment and Alejandro. Our trip was amazing, and largely due to the fact that we got to stay in this apartment. Alejandro is very responsive and helpful and so nice in making sure we had everything we needed.
These are the highlights (there are many more)
+The view is stunning and the apartment is perfect
+It is centrally located and easy to maneuver around the city with the 2 metro stops on the same block.
+The patio is the perfect place to relax, watching the sagrada familia and relaxing at the end of your day.
+The building is very safe and the neighborhood is active until late in the night. We felt very safe traveling on the metro and around the surrounding streets (two women)
Thank you Alejandro for your awesome hospitality!!
Decided to come back to the city and stay at this apartment again!
The appartment is great, good location, clean and comfortable, well equipped and Alejandro is a nice and flexible host.
Alejandro is a wonderful and very generous host. He was super helpful when his apartment was unavailable for the first day we wanted it, and even picked us up to take us to his place. He was very responsive to our many questions and very flexible. The place is lovely and right next to La Sagrada Familia and two metro stations. We had an excellent time in Alejandro's penthouse.
I learned after talking to Alejandro that he actually has two apartments on AirBnB in Barcelona. I end up staying in this one one night, in addition to the other one.
This one is very nicely furnished, has wireless, nice shower / bathroom, comfy bed. It's about a two block walk to a metro station - maybe five minutes. It's on a good metro line that connected us easily to most of the places we wanted to go. It's also possible to walk to the touristy places around Las Ramblas, but it took us maybe 30 or 35 minutes. Depends on the length of the stroll you're looking for. In the other directions though, it's really close to the parks on the opposite side of the city from the water, and it's very near Sagrada Familia. All in all, good, relatively quiet location.
This apartment is absolutely beautiful. It directly overlooks the Sagrada Familia - the location really couldn't be better. Its walking distance to downtown and right next to the metro. It's beautifully furnished, and it has the best deck probably in all of barcelona. We wanted to stay there for a week or two, but we had some more places to visit. : )
Alejandro is a fantastic host. Met us when he said he'd meet us, gave us some tips to check out in town, and was very responsive over email!
We'll definitely be checking back with Alejandro next time our travels bring us this way.
What a fantastic flat! We loved it! perfect location, 1 second from the metro. Great views and a terrific terrace that we struggled to pull ourselves away from! The flat is bright, safe, secure, peaceful, airy, modern, very well equipped and comfortable. We can't recommend it enough and would definitely stay again. Thank you Alejandro :)
A very nice guest. Good communication and clean.
Un pareja genial, muy amables y buena gente.
PAlejandro and his wife a very nice couple.
It was very nice to haqve them in my place.
Alejandro was a great guest and he is welcome back anytime. Highly recommended!
Alejandro and his guests made themselves feel at home. They came on time, were friendly and our staff at the house spoke very highly of them.
We were very happy that they could share our view of the house as a paradisiacal location and would be very happy to welcome them back!
Very nice experience! My first visitors from Spain! Very kind and tidy!They arrived on time and respected the rules of the house. I warmly recommend them!
