All good :)
Flat is nice, has everything you might need and location is perfect!
Gabby and Dan's place was a great end to out trip in Spain. It was on the top floor with a cute view and walking into the alley way to get the building made everything feel so authentic
Es war fantastisch. Gaby und Dan haben innerhalb 10 Minuten nach Buchungsanfrage geantwortet.
Das Apartment liegt super zentral, alles in laufnähe im Altstadtviertel. Das Apartement war sauber, die Einrichtung war völlig ok und ausreichend. Die Bilder sprechen mit der Wirklichkeit überein. Es gab Handtücher, mussten wir nicht mitbringen. Für einenen Städtetrip klasse Lage und angenehmes Wohnen. Einziges großes Manko ist das fehlende Wifi.
We had a little misunderstanding, with the arrival, but it was resolved quickly. The neighborhood is great, it is easy to get there fro the airport, we used taxi and it was around EUR 30.
The hosts' friend Gerlie met us at the Arc de Triumfo and walked us to the apartment (which was about 2 minutes away). The location was amazing, but the apartment was a bit run down.
- The shower head wasn't attached to the wall
- The front door was almost impossible to open, and we were almost trapped outside one night
- The terrace isn't directly attached to the apartment (though only one flight of stairs up) and most of the chairs were broken
really only minor issues since we weren't spending a lot of time in the apartment, but the shower and front door lock were definite drawbacks.
First of all, the location of this apartment was fantastic. It was just a short walk down a tiny street from the Arc de Triomf. It was very central and convenient for getting around.
In regards to the apartment itself, I would say the photos were slightly deceiving. There were a lot more things in the apartment than pictured, making it quite a bit more cramped than expected. The doors also couldn't really be closed as there wasn't actually a handle from the inside of one of the main bedrooms. The kitchen wasn't very well equipped for cooking either, so we ended up eating out for most meals. I'm sure Gaby and Dan would be happy to make improvements to that, however, so maybe this won't be an issue for long.
The terrace was a great place to relax in the evenings. As someone mentioned, there were no lights, but we were provided with some tea lights to use which was very atmospheric anyway!
Overall we had a pleasant stay and were happy with our dealings with Gaby, Dan and the friend that went out of her way to check us in at noon.
The apartment was located in a very nice neighborhood of Barcelona, easy to walk to areas with lots of bars :) right next to Arc triomf, A small parc where lots of people hang out and play.
The apartment itself is very small and maybe a bit dated. I would not recommend it for 4 people. One bed was fine to share with 2, but the other one was really too small for just friends to share. Also the doors to the bedroom and bathroom are just sliding doors..so they do not really close the rooms.
If you want to cook during your stay, forget about it. We tried to fry some eggs, but the cooking plates did not get hot enough.
The eggs just stayed fluid. We had to wait for a very long time just to make some coffee...
The door of the apartment was really difficult to close, and we had some trouble coming in. Check in was not flexible at all, as stated in the description. We could only check in at 6pm with a friend of gaby and dan. They did give us some info on where to store our luggage in the mean time (we had an early flight). But please do not state that you have flexible check in times when you can only check in after 6pm :) when our keys were stolen from the taxi, gaby was very understanding which we appreciate!
All in all, great location, and for 2 people it could be fine.. If you just use it for sleep.
Roof terrace is really big, but no lights.. So later in the evening you cant see anything.. Which is a shame for such a lovely terrace!
Gaby e família foram muito agradável em receber. Deixaram o apartamento impecável. Recomendamos definitivamente.
Wonderful couple. Very easy to talk and we recommend to any host.
Gaby y Dan (y su peque) son encantadores, muy receptivos a la hora de proponerles lugares, planes e ideas para disfrutar de la ciudad. Aceptaron enseguida las normas de la casa y no ha habido ningún problema con ellos. Recomendables!
I didn't get to meet Daniel, but he left the apartment spotless after he checked out.
great guest place was kept in great condition
Daniel was awesome! He left the apartment as clean and tidy as I gave it to him. Also, he is trustworthy. He had to stay 4 extra nights because of hurricane Sandy and I could not go to the apartment to pick up the money for the extra nights. I trusted him to leave $400 cash for me and he did! I very much recommend Daniel as a guest!
Daniel is a great guest . Very adaptable and friendly
Dan and I first met two years back working for the same company. He's an absolute english gentleman and full of interesting stories. He's travelled all over the place so is always my go-to point for travel tips, and its impossible not to have a good laugh when hanging out!
