Alex was super friendly and was able to meet us even though we arrived at midnight! The room was comfortable, in a beautiful historic building, and the location ideal. Overall, such a positive experience, I can't think of anything to criticize!
Sono stato benissimo. La casa è molto bella e pulita e completamente attrezzata. Ringrazio Zara e Alex per la loro ospitalità e se tornerò a Barcellona tornerò da loro.
The graffiti room was as advertised (artsy, spacious, high ceilings, and neat), and Zara and Alex were awesome hosts. Zara made checking-in and checking-out easy. She checked in a few times to make sure things were going well. And the other nice thing is that Alex lives in one of the rooms as well, and he was such a warm, friendly person that it made my first time in Barcelona definitely feel a bit less foreign.
The location is safe and amazing. One of the cross-streets is the major thoroughfare of Rambla Catalunya (a nice walking street), and it feels safe walking around even at night. Downstairs, there is also a really awesome chocolate shop that serves amazing sipping chocolate.
Zara and Alex are very welcome and try their best to solve all questions you have. The room is big, bright, and clean, the flat was located in central city and very cozy. You can visit anywhere easily.
Dont hesitate just stay here :D
This place is great!!!! Zara is very sweet, she let me drop off my luggage before the check in time and give me some advice about some good Restaurants and places to go for fun. The apartment is very well manage by Alex. He is very friendly and helpful with all the question that I have. The room is clean, cozy, and big!!! Just like the picture. Great location in the center of Barcelona. I will definitely chooses this Airbnb if I revisit Barcelona.
De locatie is echt top! Maximaal 10 minuten lopen naar hartje centrum en in de buurt van het appartement zijn hele gezellige en goede (tapas) restaurants en ontbijt/lunch rooms.
Het appartement is mooi en schoon, in totaal zijn er 3 kamers die verhuurd kunnen worden en Alex woont ook in het appartement en is erg behulpzaam. Verder zijn er 2 badkamers en hadden wij flexibele check in en check uit tijden. Kom zeker nog een keer terug!
Zara' place was awesome! It was really near Plaza Catalunya, Casa Mila and Casa Batlo. The shopping street was just around the corner and everything was within walking distance. There was the most amazing tapas just opposite as well! (this place that's is mostly glass)
The room was big and spacious, the apartment was really nice too.
I would totally recommend Zara's apartment to anyone who's staying in Barcelona!
Très bel accueil et grande disponibilité de l'hôte.
Le logement est conforme à sa description, proche du centre ville. Bien situé, nous avons pu visiter la ville, ses musées, l'opéra... et déguster des tapas avec les spécialités catalanes.
Allez y, prenez le temps et le plaisir d'un séjour culturel et reposant.
The apartment was excellent. The room was spacious, light and very warm, even in winter. Alex and Zara were very attentive. The apartment has great areas to stay and the location could not be better! When I return to Barcelona I have no doubt that I will try the same place to stay.
Very clear instructions how to get to the apartment, and useful tips about transportation tickets. I never met Zara, but her friend Alex greeted me and was very nice and helpful in giving me hints how to get around Barcelona. The room was like in the pictures, clean and cozy. The apartment itself has a nice vibe, makes you feel very welcome. Excellent location, not in loud and crazy area around Rambla, but 5-10 minutes walking away from a lot of attractions. Kitchen is well equipped if you fancy cooking.
The things to mind would be: wifi signal is weak to none in the Graffiti room ( i have a Samsung S3 mini), pretty noisy from the street (you have ear plugs offered but myself don't feel comfortable sleeping with them).
However, these a minor drawbacks considering it has an excellent location, a very cool & chic vibe and a helpful host. Would stay here for sure in my future visits!
All went perfectly, the booking, the stay, the flat was left in good condition. Thank you, hope you enjoyed your stay in Lisbon!
She is really nice person.I didn't get any problem from her.
Zara and her mum were fantastic guests. They are welcome back anytime!
Zara and me worked together 2 years and she was a great, worker, friendly and very creative partner.
As hostess, you'll discover the most interesting tips of the city.
In your space, you feel at home.
Good luck Zara
Zara is one of the warmest, most relaxed people I have ever met. Although her ability,
to multi-task like a mofo, know all the best places to go for gin and tonics on a Tuesday, carry random pieces of wooden furniture over long distances while rolling sushi for forty people may make her seem like a force of nature, she is in fact cool as a breeze on a hot Barcelona evening to be around!
I met Zara in Barcelona a few years ago and was delighted when I heard that she was a hostess for Airbnb. Zara is kindness personified and someone who always goes the extra mile to assist and support people and share her wondeful, genuine and generous nature. Over Christmas my daughter and I were a guest in her Airbnb room and Zara made that experience so easy for us, giving reassurance before I arrived as to how to get to from the airport to within walking distance of her house. I was completely reassured that I would not get lost by the very clear directions (and even the Spanish to use). Zara came out of work and met me off the bus and we walked the short distance to her apartment where she helped me up the stairs with my bags. The apartment was immaculate and very comfortable. The big king size bed was perfect for my daughter and myself. Very comfortable (I am very fussy about where and how I sleep at all times!), clean, airy, spacious room with a wonderful balcony high enough up from the street to provide a quiet night away from the traffic but not so far that my arthritic knees found the stairs too onerous. I loved that I could cook and wash up behind us and it was really great to have a catalogue of information available re places to go. The area is perfect for visitors; a great cinema around the corner, situated opposite lovely bakery and deli and excellent wine shops as well as cheap and cheerful little restaurants and cafes on the doorstep....the little Argentinian cafe being my favourite. The walk into the centre of Barcelona (Rambla etc) is both easy and enjoyable. Definately recommend Zara's room/apartment as a great base to explore Barcelona and definately recommend Zara as the hostess with the mostess!!
I couldn't imagine a friendlier, more helpful and accommodating host than Zara. She is fun, creative, well-traveled and kind and goes out of her way to make your stay in Barcelona special.
I recently visited Zara in Barcelona and she lent me her spare room for a few days. I have to say she is a born host. Apart from all the obvious stuff like clean sheets etc, Zara made me a fruit smoothie and eggs for breakfast. She is a very laid back and friendly person who knows everything worth knowing about Barcelona.
Clean, friendly, classy! what else is there?! Two thumbs up! -
