Isabella is a very good host. She met met in the apt at the appointed time, explained everything and gave me the keys. She's always very prompt with email and took care to explain to me that she may not be available during work hours, just to set expectations.
The apartment is up a couple of flights of stairs, and there is an elevator. It's very clean and nicely furnished. Two spacious bedrooms could easily accommodate 4 people, although it was just my colleague and myself staying for a conference. There is a nice well-equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. A spacious living / dining area opens onto a small balcony that overlooks the street through a pair of french doors. High ceilings throughout make it feel very spacious.
The apartment is in a terrific location. It's literally a block from the Universitat metro station in the center of town, and yet on a very quiet street, sheltered from the busy Gran Via by a large University building complex. The street is also protected from car traffic, with only a small amount of two-wheeler traffic allowed. There are a large number of cafes, bakeries, tapas bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk and the neighborhood feels extremely safe at all hours. When I left, I had to take a 4.45am cab to catch an early flight on a Friday morning and the nightlife stragglers were still milling about.
The plaza outside the apt is the local gathering place for dogs and their owners,which is great if you like dogs.
I would highly recommend this 2BR apt for business travelers that may want to share the cost, or for a family traveling to Barcelona. It's very comfortable and in a terrific location. Prices were extremely reasonable considering this was the week of the Mobile World Congress, where 90,000 people visit Barcelona.
p.s: I managed to lose a set of keys and Isabella was very accommodating about it. She really is a very good host.
O apartamento de Isabella é ótimo. Super aconchegante e amplo! Destaque para a cozinha bem equipada e para a sala que é grande e com um sofá bem confortável. As fotos correspondem bem à realidade. O apartamento fica muito bem localizado. A estação de metro mais próxima também não fica distante, apenas umas 2 quadras.
Como a Isabella estava viajando, fomos recebidos por sua amiga brasileira que nos repassou as principais informações.
Very nice and cosy appartment for 2-5 people. Well equipped for all needs even for an extended stay. Extremely central located, great restaurants literally just seconds away. Super nice view from balcony.
Central location, comfortable room in a well-lit and equipped flat, super friendly hostess, generous with her very relevant info and explanations, what could be better? Look no further, here is your perfect place to stay in Barcelona.
Isabella est très accueillante et sympathique ; son appartement clair , très propre et très bien situé . Elle n 'hésite pas à vous orienter sur les bons plans de la ville (resto , locations de vélo ....)
On a hâte de revenir !
I spend 3 nights at Isabella's appartment for my first Abnb experience. It was perfect. The room is very clean,spacious and you have wifi working very good. The situation is perfect in a pedestrian street near Passeig de Gracia,Gaudi's Pedrera and Casa Balto, Plaza Catalunya and Ramblas. And the cherry on the cake is Isabella. She is a perfect,helpfull,kind and smiling...a dream-host. I'll certainly be back!
Isabella es una anfitriona excelente. Te hace sentir en casa desde el primer momento y es una gran ayuda a la hora de conocer Barcelona.
El apartamento está situado en un sitio inmejorable, desde el que puedes moverte a todas partes caminando sin problemas y es un sitio muy agradable para descansar tras un largo día conociendo la ciudad o trabajando.
Gracias Isabella por todo.
Isabella has a spacious, clean apartment in a very central location. Initially I thought it was a few blocks too far from some attractions but it was a short walk to Casa Batllo and Las Ramblas and the Pass. de Gracia Metro - no need to transfer to other metro lines at all. Further the apartment is located on one of Barcelona's few pedestrian streets, filled with a lively assortment of families and students throughout the day and evening. Lots of cafés and 24 hour markets nearby. Her point of contact, Diego, was a very friendly and helpful person and his English is terrific.
Die Ankunft hat tiptop geklappt. Diego hat für Isabella uns erwartet und war sehr freundlich. Die Wohnung ist gut eingerichtet und entsprach unserer Erwartung. Im Sommer kann es einfach sehr warm werden, da keine Klimaanlage.
Very nice and clean apartment, located very close to the city centre. Everything was absolutely perfect.
Isabela es una joven maravillosa de muy buen trato ,es una persona que comparte su tiempo con los de la casa, es muy organizada es una persona que recomiendo a cualquier anfitrión
Great guests! Left the apartment in perfect condition and they were very friendly and nice! Highly recommend!
Isabella is a wonderful host and friend. Some one that I recommend very highly. She has the ability to make you laugh all day long as well as knowing the ins and outs of whats going on in Barcelona. She is extremely well connected and knows all the best places to go and eat and to go out. As a host she is always someone that will put in the extra effort to make your stay an experience that you will never forget. If your going to go to Barca then make the right decision and go and stay with her.
Hmm... how best to decribe Isabella?? I would say she is a hurricane full of positive energy and fun. she is always up for having a good time and never short of a smile on her face. Isa is a real organizer and I am sure she will not fail in preparing the perfect visit to Barcelona for anyone staying with her, from directions to her place, over recommendations for bars and restaurants, to the little extra tipps about Barcelona which you can only get by an insider :-)
Isabella is really easy going, she loves clean places, traveling, cooking and enjoys good company.
I know her from school. So I really recommend to do some business with her, she can help you with your concerns.
Isabella Is an amazing person. She is very organized, clean and an amazing cook!
She knows her way into the city, and is always willing to have a good time, no matter what!
I know that if you meet her you will adore her too!!
Isabella is great! Caring, loving, considerate, helpful in all ways and a great host. Full support!
Isabella is an amazing person! She is very helpful, smart, funny sweet and organized.
I give her 5 stars of 3 possible stars.
