I can't live without music, good food, good wine and friends!
I like to share my place with friendly & respectful people.
Love the beach & happy people.
Carlos was a great host, very helpful and knowledgable about the local area and barcelona as a whole. The room was large and comfortable with plenty of natural light and quiet in the evenings for sleeping. I was able to use the kitchen facilities and Carlos cleared some space in the fridge so I could store food from the nearby supermarket. The apartment block includes a lift which is quite rare and was much appreciated (as the flat is on the top floor). Carlos was kind enough to let me leave a bicycle I hired in the flat for security. Although there is a 5-10 minute walk from the nearest metro station (St Antoni) the location is excellent as a base for seeing the whole city but it is particularly convenient since the main tourist areas of La Rambla and Playa Catalunya are close by and easily walkable. Thanks for a great stay!
This apartment is as advertised, bright, clean, and conveniently located. Carlos did an awesome job of helping me get to know the area and pointed out some little known but amazing restaurants.
I would definitely stay there again!
The room was bright and spacious in the appartment close to la Rambla and the market. Carlos is a nice host ready to help you orientate in the city.
Since we were a bit delayed we had to pick up the key at Carlos work place, but it wasn't far from the apartment and he explained it very well how to get there. The room was sunny and big just like in the pictures! The bed was comfortable and we had enough space for our stuff. For our taste the kitchen and bathroom could have been a bit cleaner. Just to be fair to other Airbnb hosts with whom I have stayed and from whose places you could have eaten of the floor, I want to point this out. Since Carlos worked at night we did not see much of each other during the week, but the first night we had some excellent cocktails at his bar and he gave us lots of great tips where to party. The area is also very convenient to get around the city and since it is in a multicultural neighborhood there are many late night shops to buy water and fruit. It is also close to the big market, which was excellent for breakfast. Overall I can recommend the place.
The room and building were as described. Really comfortable and fun place to stAy. Carlos was a great host.
Staying at Carlos's apartment was a joy. Carlos was welcoming, warm, open and really helpful. We felt very comfortable sharing his space. He was easy going about having us there. Carlos kept to his own schedule as did we. We came and went independently. At the same time, Carlos helped us with directions and suggestions when we asked for them.
The room was ample and just as described. Clean and bright. I appreciated having a desk for the work I needed to do.
We were able to use a shelf in the refrigerator. That way we saved money by cooking at times.
There were also times I needed to spend time in the living room closer to the wifi. I felt welcome in that room.
The apartment is centrally located and everything for us was walkable.
Thanks, Carlos. You were the best!

I enjoyed my stay with Carlos. The room was spacious and very nicely done. As it was my first time in Barcelona, Carlos took some time to suggest some highlights that I should visit. What was also nice was that he provided a folder of cards of nice restaurants that I could go. The location of the apartment was pretty centric too.
Carlos is a friendly and nice host. He was accommodating to me in terms of doing an early check in, which was very helpful. His AirBNB room is just as described - full of light, spacious, and a nice place to relax in between adventures. His apartment is clean and feels like a "home away from home" quite close to La Rambla and other tourist attractions while feeling delightfully set apart from it. Only one caution though, is that coming alone home late at night I would advise coming in from the La Rambla side, where there are more people and constant cars, vs. the side streets leading to Paral-lel.
Carlos is an experienced AirBNB host and a great guide to the local El Raval neighborhood - he was even kind enough to take me out to some local bars one night I stayed with him. For more experienced and independent travelers, I would highly recommend Carlos' apartment. It was just what I was looking for, in a neighborhood I came to enjoy very much!
Carlos is a really nice, easy and hospitable guy, and wants you to feel like home at his place. Unfortuntely we didn't meet too often as we were on different schedules
The room is very big and clean, and I slept very good!
I had a really great week in Barcelona. Carlos is a very good host. The apartment was clean, comfortable and quiet. Well, the perfect spot to have a nice time in this wonderful city!
Carlos is a great guest, very friendly. The flat was left in a perfect condition. Highly recommended to all hosts.
Carlos is a great host and a really great guy. He always helps you if needed, he also can be a great guide through Bcn's bars and you'll never get bored with him. The apartment is great, full of light (especially coparing to typical flats in the zone) and new, it is situated in a vivid historic centre of the city with plenty of sights, restaurants and landmarks around.
*Carlos, es mi hermano y debo decir que es un hombre muy responsable, lo admiro por su buena voluntad de siempre ayudar!!!
*Es un hombre disciplinado, limpio y nunca deja de lado el respeto del entorno de los demás!!
*Cuando estamos juntos en un viaje, hace todo lo que esta en su tiempo y manos para mostrarnos lo mas hermoso de un ciudad y eso créanme, no tiene precio!!
*Yo lo recomiendo porque es una persona honesta, respetuosa y muy aseada, esas 3 cosas a mí me dan la confianza de cualquier persona!! (En hora buena hermano, te quiero)
Carlos is a good friend of mine and we have worked together for almost two years. He is a very responsable and caring as a person. His flat is in a very good location, near to the rambla and the city centre and with loads of bars and restaurants. The flat is always clean since carlos is a very organized person. Im sure that in carlos place you´ll have a great time!
Carlos e' fantastico per gusto, gentilezza e simpatia. La sua casa e' come lui, solare, al centro della movida, bellissima e accogliente. Il posto ideale per sentirsi a casa a Barcellona
Charlie is a friend from barcelona and he`s got a really nice flat, above all, the terrace. There you can really relax, reading or eating. The apartment is big and very bright which for me is very important. Charlie aswell is a great guy an he really makes you feel like home, always inviting you to his dinners etc. The location is another thing that i liked, its really in the heart of Barcelona in walking distance to everything in the centre.
