Hi! My name is Josep and I'm from Barcelona. I'm a Civil Engineer and I like practice sports, gastronomy and cuture.
See you in Barcelona!!
Josep est un très bon hôte, de très bon conseil et disponible si besoin. L’appartement est placé dans un quartier résidentiel très agréable et possède un parking privé souterrain très securisé.A 5 minutes à pieds d'une station de métro,13 minutes en tout de Placa de Catalunya (centre névralgique des transports au pieds des Ramblas) 20 / 30 minutes a pieds du parc Guell.
Le logement est aussi très luxueux avec de beaux materiaux (semblable à la photo) et une cuisine bien équipée (ustensiles, récipients et tous les appareils nécessaires).Nous étions 5 adultes et la taille de l'appartement était suffisante.Nous recommandons avec grand plaisir cet hôte qui nous a assuré un bon séjour !
Tuvimos un tiempo muy agradable en el piso de Josep, el fue muy cordial y amable desde un comienzo.
El piso en si muy comodo y acogedor, una locacion muy central a todo tipo de super mercados y restaurantes, muy conveniente, todo a la mano.
La cocina muy completa, incluyo todo lo necesario, todo funciono perfectamente.
La verdad que nos gusto todo, definitivamente lo recomendamos!
Josep was a fantastic host. He was professional, friendly, accommodating and incredibly helpful. I especially appreciated how easy and quick it was to communicate with him. The apartment was spacious, clean and conveniently located for if you are planning to visit for the MWC. I would definitely rent from him again.
Josep was wonderful from the first communication to the last. He gave very helpful tips and recommendations and was extremely flexible when my arrival time changed. I credit Josep with making my stay in Barcelona such a success!
The flat is exactly what is shown by Josep on the images presented on the site : bright, newly decorated, well equiped, with parking slot in the building, and with enough space to stay for a family of 4.
Josep had been very welcoming, very flexible to arrange arrival and departure, and available to share some tricks and advices for the stay. Perfect host !
Quarter is a bit off center of Barcelona, out of city crowd and with some nice areas to walk around (climbing on the hills around). Access to city center is easy with subway, about 15-20minuts "all included" from the flat (metro 1st zone, so low cost). Everything needed for food shoping (supermarket, bakery, grocery..) is 5 minuts walk away which is very convenient.
Only (not so) "negative" point noted during our stay : flat is at first floor with leaving room and main bedroom on main street, with heavy traffic and traffic light nearby (so a bit noisy from early morning to late night with buses, pizza delivery men, etc..)
This flat is beautiful, very spacious, with lots of light and Josep is a great host. I thought it was thoughtful that they have a board in the hallway with restaurant suggestions, I tried one of them (Abyssinia for Ethiopian food) and really recommend it, food is really unique and delicious. The place is clean, comfortable and well connected with (L7 and L3) there´s a supermarket just downstairs. There´s also lots of places to have breakfast around. MUST TRY: the cronuts (croissant+doughnut) in Santa Gloria, right around the corner.
Park Guell is within walking distance and there´s also another work of Gaudi nearby, which is not in the main tourist routes, and I was pleased to discover (Bellesguard)
I went up the hill through Av. Tibidabo for a bit of exercise and found this great path up in the mountain, great for a run (I believe the name is Carretera de Aguas). I also really enjoyed seeing the modernist palaces down this same avenue, it was really a treat.
All in all a great experience! ;)
Alla mia seconda esperienza su quessto sito purtroppo devo ammettere che per le mie aspettative ho preso una brutto colpo. Le foto sono vere ma non rendono giustizia alle condizioni dell'appartamento. In quattro su quattro abbiamo subito optato per non soggiornare nell'appartamento prenotando in estremis un hotel peraltro fuori città. La seconda camera non si può definire per due persone e le condizioni di sicurezza a mio parere non sono idonee ad ospitare dei turisti. Ho frequentato con gli stessi amici hotel e appartemnti in tutta europa e non ci era mai successo di abbandonare un posto letto. A mio parere le fotografie creano un'aspettativa molto più alta di quanto è nella realtà. NOn metto in dubbio che comunque si tratti semplicemente di un parere legato a delle apettative soggetive che avevamo io e i miei amici anche in funzione delle esperienzae già vissute che comunque non sono poche.
Josep was a helpful host while communicating with him over mails,calls etc. We did not get to meet him as he was travelling when we arrived, the cleaning lady let us in.
The place was rather cramped with almost no ventilation, the table fans are too small, esp during summertime when the temp is touching 40 deg C in Barcelona. The apt description says it accommodates 6 people but it is way too small for 6, some of us had to sleep on the floor as the couch of not big enough for 2. The apt was quite dirty and had not been cleaned properly. The shower was not working, the bathroom did not have a lock.
Would really request Josep to edit the apt description as it cannot accommodate 6 people and ensure that it is cleaned well before he has guests stay over. It added a bad twist to our stay at Barcelona because our stay was not very comfortable.
It was our first time on Airbnb, and we'll do it again!
Everything went very smoothly, we had all the information we needed as Josep was always reactive to our mails. The place is nice, clean and comfy. Josep helped us find a free parking place, super helpful!
Thanks from all of us !
Josep is really a very nice host like everybody else wrote. We were 6 in the appartment and everything went just fine except maybe for the absence of the air conditioning. It was august and the weather was hot... We would have enjoyed to be able to cool the house. Even when we opened the windows, we were not able to get some really fresh air. However the location is great,it was close to the metro and plaza Espana. There was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is equipped so you can even cook if you feel like it. And Barcelona is always beautiful
Josep e i suoi amici sono stati fantastici, addirittura mi hanno aiutato a pulire la casa, sono ragazzi che tutti vorrebbero avere come amici, il massimo dei voti e massima stima
It was a pleasure to have Josep and his family as our guests at Red Apartment, we hope to meet him again!
Josep and his family stay in my apartment for 2 days in may 2012, I just meet his sister Alba that is a Erasmus student in Siena, very funny and easy girl; great experience.
