Soy un chico muy extrovertido, adoro Barcelona y su cultura, me encanta conocer gente de todas partes del mundo, viajar, esquiar, hacer submarinismo, ver el fútbol,..etc.
Very nice place to stay if you want to spend a good amount of time in Barcelona. Would recommend.
I absolutely cherish my time in Barcelona at Juan and Olga's apartment. They are both wonderful people, and while I don't speak any Spanish at all, "Friendly" is a universal language. They are so nice, and Olga proudly keeps the place spotless. The apartment has modern amenities, and I was welcomed to use the kitchen, living and dining areas. I felt like I was taking advantage by letting Olga do my laundry, but she insisted. While the sixth-story balcony doesn't look out to any landmarks or the ocean, it's perfect for people-watching and catching fresh air. I found the bed and pillows to be very, very comfortable, and Olga provided fresh linens every week. There is a large wardrobe in which to hang your clothes and store your belongings, as well as two end tables that will store many things within reach but out of sight.
I love, love, love the location. Metro access is literally at your front door, and you have only a 5- to 7-minute walk to la Ramblas or the harbor and Maremagnum mall. In February, when I was there, the weather was great for walking everywhere. I ate many delicious lunches at the Boqueria Market, and la Ramblas is a main artery to Passeig de Grácia and Plaça de Catalunya. You are also about a 15- to 20-minute walk to the Juame I Metro stop, which is where the New Europe Barcelona Free Tours pick up daily at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM - I highly recommend those as well. And Juan was nice enough to walk with me around the corner to a fitness center so that I could get a temporary membership and burn off all the Tapas I enjoyed in Barcelona! =)
Barcelona never sleeps, and it's important to note that there is constant white noise from the street that you can hear in the room throughout the night. I had absolutely no problem with it, and in fact, really felt it added to my Barcelona experience. If you are a sensitive sleeper, this might not be your ideal location. But you owe it to yourself to pack earplugs and give it a shot, because it's definitely an AirBnB gem.
This really is a fantastic, clean, modern apartment in a fascinating city, and you have quick access to all of it from this charming room hosted by two adorable, friendly souls. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Barcelona. Highly recommended, I will definitely return.
Doña Olga es muy amable y cariñosa. Me gustó mucho los dias en que estuve en Barcelona. La localización es perfecta, tambien. Lavado de ropa sin cobrar nada por ello. La habitación donde me alojé es un poco ruidosa, pero quien está acostumbrado al ruido de la avenida no le importará.
I had such a wonderful time in Barcelona! The apartment was very clean and the location was ideal. Juanmi and Olga were very helpful and extemely gracious. Olga even did my laundry! Thank you Olga and Juanmi.
We have brilliant 3 weeks in Juami's appartment. The apartment has everything to feel as you are at home. Very nice, clean room, excelent location just near metro, a lot of shops and cafes near, not far away from la Rambla street. Olga and Juami were nice and hospitality. I definitly recomend to stay here if you need, not just a room :)))
A very good stay at Salinas. Olga and Juanmi are very caring and helpfull, the apartment is always clean and has a very good location in Barcelona. We stayed there for 3 weeks and had a lovely time. We felt safe and home.
I stayed at Juanmi's place with a friend for three weeks and I really have to say it was a huge pleasure for us. Everything was just perfect: Juanmi and his mom were so friendly and caring! Beautiful and extremely clean apartment in the heart of Barcelona. If you want to make the most of your Barcelona trip make sure to stay with Juanmi. It really can't get any better from my point of view! If I come back to Barcelona in the future I will certainly stay with Juanmi and his mom again!
Thank you very much for an awesome time Juanmi!
Bonjour, je recommande fortement prendre une chambre chez juan. Il est doté d'un excellent relationnel avec une bonne connaissance de la ville de Barcelona. Il est quelqu'un très sympathique et sociable. L'appartement est très spacieux avec des chambres confortables. Il est très propre et bien équipé (cuisine ,toilettes, serviettes, papiers, ...). Il est à 5 minutes à pieds de las Ramblas et place de catalunya pour faire la fête, 10 -15 mn à pieds des plages de barceloneta et ports olympiques où on peut se baigner. En bas de l'immeuble, il y a la station de métro Parallel. C'est pratique. Dans le quartier, Il y a beaucoup des restaurants, bar à Tapas, commerce et épiceries. J'ai loué 3 semaines dans cet appartement et Je me suis senti chez moi. Séjours à refaire !!! Merci beaucoup JUAN.
Had a brilliant time living here in Barcelona, the description was accurate and juanmi and his mum were a pleasure to live with. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who want to come to Barcelona. If I return then I will definitely come back here!
Il soggiorno è stato piacevole. Il punto di forza è nell'ubicazione del palazzo, vicinissimo al centro e con l'ingresso della metropolitana proprio davanti al portoncino. In pochi minuti si raggiunge la rambla e, da lì, il quartiere gotico con la cattedrale, ecc. o la plaza Catalunya. Tra l'appartamento e la rambla si passa davanti al palau Güell, incantevole, in modo particolare alla sera. L'appartamento è pulito e confortevole, ma non è indicato per chi ama il silenzio perchè si trova affacciato su una importante arteria di scorrimento piena di locali notturni per cui il rumore della strada non cessa mai. Un altro aspetto da tener presente per poter scegliere con cognizione di causa è la presenza costante di persone in casa (comunque rispettose) per cui non è adatto per chi ritiene fondamentale la privacy.
Juanmi and his friend Jose were great. They were friendly, flexible, clearly communicated their plans and left the apartment clean.
