Xavier's place is located just next to Picasso Museum, so it's really easy to find the place especially if it's the first time for you to arrive in Barcelona. Xavier has a great taste of art and keep a clean and lovely house in a 400-year old building. The most important point is the location, easy to get around the old city by foot, and also so many restaurants in EL Born area.
We have just returned from a great stay here, at Xaviers apartment. We had a fantastic visit here, and Xavier was a great host. The apartment is lovely, well equipped, with lovely breakfasts. The location was perfect too, next door to the Picasso Museum in the El Born ( gothic quarter). It was so easy to jump on the metro, buses and to walk everywhere too. Toby and I, visited the Parc Guell, Barceloneta beach, Casa Batllo, Sagrada familia, and the Picasso museum too, all with help from Xavier. El Born is a great area to stay in, with boho cafés, restaurants and shops. We definitely recommend staying here! Please note there are a lot of stairs up to the flat, so you need to be pretty fit!!
We totally fell in love with Xavier's place the moment we saw it. It's right smack in the middle of the city and it looks just the same in the photos. I will definitely recommend Xavier's place to anyone looking to visit Barcelona.
I really enjoyed staying with Xavier. His house was fantastic and my room was pretty and tidy. The neighborhood is wonderful and central. He was a really wonderful host and made me feel welcome.
De ontvangst was prima, de locatie van het appartement fantastisch. We bleken het Picassomuseum als buren te hebben. Bovendien een heel gezellige wijk met volop tapas bars, restaurants en winkels. Een aanrader!
This room is situated on the third floor of an ancient and interesting apartment block in the Born area of Barcelona. The apartment is pleasant, consisting of another guest room, a bathroom, kitchen, living area and the host's room. Xavier is a very helpful person and was most willing to provide advice on sightseeing etc.
We were, however, less than pleased to have to lug two heavy cases up three flights of narrow stairs to reach the apartment. There is no indication of this in the details. Similarly, the bathroom is not ensuite, and is shared with the other guests and the host himself. We felt that this was not made explicit in the details, and although we had a comfortable stay, it could have been different, if the bathroom had been in use more by the other guests or host.
Hermoso lugar , cálido y acogedor. Xavier un amable y cordial anfitrión.
Xavier made me feel welcome - he's a great Airbnb host. I would come back again. Apartment was very central, clean, warm and had a homely feel about it.
Xavier welcomed us to his home with sincerely and warmth. The location is excellent for spending time in central city. The stairs are narrow, many, and steep.The climb is well worth it. A beautiful home done in good taste.
집은 전체적으로 깔끔하고 사용하기 편했어요 가장 좋았던 점은 바로 옆이 피카소 미술관이고 골목골목 bar나 가게들이 많아서 시끌벅적한 분위기이구요.호스트는 한번도 보지못했고 스텝이 안내를 해줬고..엘레베이터 없어서 고생좀 했습니다. 엘레베이터없는거 빼고는 추천하고싶네요
Xavier i els seus companys van ser molt amables sempre, va haver-hi una *pefecta *comunicació a tot moment. *també van ser molt respectuosos amb la casa i els voltants.
Moltes gràcies i torneu sempre que volgueu!
I've lived at the "Vaixell de Paper" for a while and I feel really lucky, as it's been a very happy time. The house is just amazing, really beautifully decorated, and the terrace at the top offers you one of the best views of the city. The house is located at the heart of the city, where you can find the main sights, go out for restaurants/bars/discos...but at the same time you can enjoy a relaxing atmosphere. Xevi is a big friend, he has a huge heart, and he is a great host who is always willing to help. 100% recommended, It's the best place to stay if you are visiting Barcelona!!
A finales de Octubre estuvimos en este sitio : en un B&B super chulo ubicado en una de las partes mas magicas de Barcelona !!!!
Xevi ha ofrecido una hospitalidad super agradable y nos ayudò para una buena visita de Barcelona!!! Esperamos repetir pronto!
Great flat!. Nice rooms!. Amazing host!. Beautiful area!. The place to stay in Barcelona!!!!!.
As you can see in the photos, it is a beautiful, big, very clean and cozy house. Is located in the Born neighborhood, one of the most emblematic quartes and beautiful Barcelona, also indicate that Xavi is very pleasant, and will make guests feel at home.also has a beautiful terrace. A great luxury to have a terrace in a neighborhood like that¡ ¡ ¡ ¡, you won't regret it, one hundred percent recommended¡ ¡ ¡¡
This flat is amazing, just in the heart of Barcelona, by the Picasso Museum. In this flat you will enjoy a real Barcelona experience and you will feel like being at home! Xevi is a very kind and helpful person!
A flat perfectly situated next door to the Picasso museum and in the area of Born which everyone who comes to Barcelona wants to stay as it has the best restaurants,shops and bars. The flat has a lovely homely feel to it and a beautiful roof top garden to get some tranquilo time! Xavier is a great host with always time to chat and answer as many questions as you can muster.
Having known Xavier for a long time now and having left him in charge of our own bed and breakfast, during our periods of absence, we can say that as a host he is brilliant (everyone of our guests pointed this to us after we came back); polite and considerate, happy to help you through your stay in Barcelona. With his more than considerable knowledge of the city and its surroundings, always able to give you tips and recommendations, which definitily will make the most of your stay here in Barcelona enjoyable.
What is most important is that he takes pride in his appartment and his roof garden, and you will be treated as royalty when staying with him.
