We loved staying at Luis' place. It was spacious, well decorated, and in the best location!
Our check in was easy with two friends of Louis'. The place was spotless, the water pressure was great, and the surrounding restaurants and bodegas were perfect. There were plenty of maps and guidebooks, a reliable internet connection, a hairdryer, huge closets and beautiful balconies. It is a 3rd floor walk up but we didn't find it a problem. We walked everywhere. It was even easy to catch a cab to the airport.
Great price, great place. You won't be disappointed.
I stayed at this apartment for a month, and had a great time. Some thoughts that might be helpful:
- Luis, the host, was incredibly friendly, helpful and responsive. He was reachable at all times and that made my stay much more enjoyable.
- The apt looks as shown in the photos. I had no issues with cleanliness and importantly for me, water pressure in the shower was good!
- As others have commented, the apt is up a few flight is stairs. It's quite narrow but safe. After a full day of walking around, these stairs don't seem like much of an obstacle! However I agree with earlier comment that if you have massive luggage a, could be a challenge.
- Safety-wise, I never had an issue. Plenty of tourists and locals around so no problem.
- Tourist areas are close and Metro is very close by too.
- Right downstairs is a lunchtime restaurant heavily frequented by locals, so if you are at a loss for where to eat and want to have a more local experience, give it a try!
Luis was amazing! Such a friendly and accommodating guy. We booked the apartment the same day we checked in and Luis made it all happen so smoothly. The apartment was wonderful. Some of the best tapa restaurants we ate in Barcelona we're just around the corner. Tons of cool little shops right around the corner as well. Grocery stores, the metro, and the beach we're all very close by as well. For the first two nights we stayed on La Ramblas but loved Luis's apartment WAY better. It was so close to the metro that all the touristy stuff was easily accessible. Luis also emails back with any recommendations and questions very quickly. The apartment was beautiful and clean with a fully equipped kitchen. Two lovely balconies, one right off the master bedroom. We will definitely stay at Luis's apartment again and will most definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Barcelona!
The apartment has some great qualities, but overall we were disappointed with our stay. The location is fantastic. The apartment is within walking distance from Las Ramblas, Le Borne, Barceloneta, and many other great areas/museums.
We were met by a woman Luis sent who handed us the keys to the apartment and left. No explanation was given as to which keys go to what door, where to dump trash, etc. A neighbor in the building was super helpful and gave us some information. The floors were filthy. I'm not a clean-freak, but the floors were so noticeably dirty with hair and dust that none of us dared to walk barefoot. Apartment is also up 4 very steep and very cramped stairs (difficult to move luggage up and down) - this should be mentioned in the description.
The owner also charges a lot extra for each additional person. I understand charging maybe a few euro, but the charges requested here are excessive. We had 1 extra person in the apartment for 2 of our 5 nights so I was honest and mentioned it to Luis and he still insisted on charging an extra 30 euro (despite the fact that there was a mix up and only 2 towels were provided) - he could have made an effort and let the fee slide given the situation with the towels and the dirty state of the apartment.
I've really lucked out in the past with fantastic AirBnB stays, so I think that also impacted my opinion of this apartment. Not even a roll of toilet paper was given. The apartment has potential to be great, but as it stands now, I wouldn't go back.
The apartment is really nice and comfortable, conditions are great, however make sure you take a smaller bedroom to avoid street/highway noise as the Air-conditioner was not working. It would have been better to have the host receiving us in-person for our entry to show passwords, cables, on-and off buttons on different equipment, etc. and so to reveal that something is wrong with Air-con. Also, note that there is railway along the beach and a street, however you get to the beach in 5 minutes.
Очень хорошая квартира, просторная, уютная, многофункциональная, со всеми возможными удобствами!! Были небольшие неполадки, как неубегающая вода в ванне и раковине! Отличная кухня, прекрасные кровати, очень удобно жить с детьми! единственный минус - очень тесный гараж, парковаться приходилось с большим трудом, в итоге стали ставить машину на улице! До пляжа 3 минуты, поезда хоть и ходят часто, но абсолютно не слышны и не мешают!Бассейн хороший, но была одна проблема - плохо чистили, иногда не приходили чистить по 4-5 дней! Хозяин прекрасный человек, готовый ответить на все вопросы, во всем помочь, и главное быстро и четко!! Спасибо за гостеприимство, Льюис!! Сам городок интересный, надо лишь пройтись внутрь, тихий, спокойный, уютный и без туристов!!!!
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Perfect description of apartment. Location was also perfect, located right at the heart of Barcelona and walking distance to most touristic sites! Had a wonderful time, thank you!
Communication was very prompt and professional. Apartment was clean and spacious. No lift though and access from a very small staircase. Should have been mentioned in the description.
very nice neighborhood with plenty of things to do and nice bars and restaurants.
Overall a very positive experience
The apartment is great and has many things to recommend it - proximity to rail station and beach (5 mins each), communal pool (very welcome after long day in the city), great balcony with view over the beach and sea, and all mod cons in the kitchen. The listing and photos were accurate and reflected the apartment well.
The distance to Barcelona is perfect - 20 mins on the train to the downtown stations. Also a very easy rail link with one change from the airport. In fact the rail service is fabulous - a train every 10 minutes throughout the day. And then the metro system in Barcelona is equally quick and efficient and easy to get to grips with for a traveller.
We are the kind of family, with two virtually adult daughters, who want to mix it up on holiday with some beach time and some sightseeing in the city, and we were comfortably able to do everything we wanted to.
El Masnou itself is quite a small place and not touristy, another attraction for us. The bar on the beach was fine for a beer or coffee and simple tapas, and there is a strip of bars and restaurants in the port if you like to eat and drink out a lot.
For us, the greater attraction is shopping in the local markets and cooking at home. El Masnou has a fantastic market on Carrer Italia which had everything you needed - seafood, meat, vegetables, ham, bread etc etc. There is also a decent wine store near there. The city has grander versions of course of both markets and wine outlets, which are another great thing about Barcelona itself.
Luis was an attentive host, replying quickly to all communications, and was quick to respond to a small problem that we had, and we would definately come back again. Thanks Luis.
Persona educata gentile ..molto riservato ottima la conversazione. Bella persona
I was in Masnou last year, but I slept in a small hotel. Masnou is a great place because you can have the relax of a quiet town and just in 25 minutes you can be visiting Barcelona.
The port is fantastic to have a walk, enjoy a fantastic mediterranian meal or drink a cocktail in a terrace.
Next time I´ll book this apartment. The price seems right.
Luis is a friendly guy and a lot of fun..His apartment is very comfotable and ideally for families and groups who wants to visit Barcelona..
I stayed at Music Palace apartment and everything was great. Luis was so kind with us and the apartment was very clean and confortable.
Great hollidays!!! NEXT YEAR AGAIN:)
