Everything was perfect. The flat is spacious and had everything we needed. It's also much more bright compared to the photos. The neighbourhood is culturally diverse and vibrant, and perfectly located. We were able to walk everywhere... And we felt safe no matter the time. Lived the city, would definitely go back and stay here again!
Aucun problème durant le séjour, ce n'est pas moi qui ait été accueilli mais mon ami qui est arrivé plus tôt, et tout s'est très bien passé. L'appartement est spacieux et très typique !
We stayed at this apartment for about 4 days. The location is lovely, close to the main streets and metro stations. The apartment itself is superb as well, everything works perfectly and the neighbors aren't loud sleep was pleasant. Barcelona is a wonderful and dynamic city we will definitely be back!
The apartment is just great and Elena very helpful. We (my husband, his two teenage girls and I) spent a nice week in Barcelona. Elena was there to give us the keys of the apartment and explain how it works and she was very flexible as to our hours of arrival and departure so we felt relaxed. The apartment is big enough for 4 people, very original and welcoming. It is conveniently situated : we could go to a lot of places by walking, like the harbour, the ramblas of course, the miro foundation, the picasso museum. And there's a subway station very near (5 minutes walking) with two lines, so we could easily get to gaudi's casa mila and the sagrada familia for example. The area is very lively, with a lot of groceries, small supermarkets ... And I recommend a wonderful shop which sells bread ans pastries from marocco in carrer del hospital (around number 56).
The only thing which can be inconvenient is the noise late at night (Barcelona is a noisy city anyway and we went there in July). We had to get ear protections the two first nights and then we grew accustomed and adapted our lifestyle : we get to bed late, wake up late and enjoy all what Barcelona had to offer us (which is a lot!!).
Fantastic Apartment, great location only 5 mins to La Ramblas, great host. Thank you!
Elena was very nice and extremely responsive to any questions or concerns that we had. The location was perfect, very close to all Barcelona attractions. Not all furnishings that are pictured are available in the unit, but overall our experience was positive.

Perfect flat, amazing location and terrific suggestions of things to do. had an amazing time!
We really enjoyed our stay at Elena's apartment. It is cozy and fully exhibits the distinct Catalan style that the photographs show. The kitchen is well equipped - you can cook your own paella after visiting the wonderful Boqueria market nearby (although next time I will check out the less touristy Mercat de Sant Antoni which is even closer).
Elena is a great host, knowledgeable about Barcelona and the neighborhood.
We'll gladly stay there again next time.
There is not any problem about her.
Elena was great guest and nice person I really enjoyed them host in our house and hope to see them again ,
very happy to host Elena and her family; They were perfect and very polite guests; I'm very delighted that they enjoyed the stay, you're always be welcomed again:)
Elena and family were perfect guests. They are welcome any time!
Very happy to have received Elena and that she has enjoyed his stay ... You are welcome every time.
I've know Jelena for more than 10 years. I had to pleasure to be invited for her wedding in Barcelona, which was a lot of fun. I can assure you that she's a very charming and welcoming person. She's well travelled and speaks more languages than I can count on one hand - all of them perfectly.
I stayed at her place in Barcelona a couple of weekends when I was visiting the city with friends. You won't be disappointed: this is a comfortable and cosy apartment within walking distance of the main sights: La Rambla, CCCB, MACBA, Placa Reial, the Boqueria market ... - all of this is 10 minutes by foot. The apartment neighbourhood is colourful, with lots of quirky bars closeby - but it is also safe and quiet at night.
I have known Jelena my entire life and she never stops surprising me! Innovative, creative, warm and exciting, these are just some of the qualities that Jelena has. And of course, she made her apartment a magic and cosy harbour in the busy and never sleeping-ever-changing Barcelona.
She renovated the entire place herself, designed the bathroom tiles, choose the right furniture and the right colours.
When someone puts so much positive energy and love into a place - the love stays inside and you feel it!
Being there just feels home but it also makes you feel are from Barcelona yourself, which is what I most like when travelling.
Step outside the apartment and you are in the HEART of Barcelona.
Walking to the MACBA, the market, the Rambla is as easy as sitting outside in one of the bars on the main square at 50 meters distance. A great bakery, shops are all at your instant reach.
I can only say, with this apartment you will have a special experience of Barcelona and it will make your stay unique.
I wish I was there now!
Jelena is a great host! Knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The apartment is beautiful, right in the heart of the city. Great location. Close to everything. We trully enjoyed our stay there. Had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back. Thank you very much, Jelena! See you again soon!
