Elena is een goede gastvrouw. De kamer was prima. De locatie echt heel goed, we konden overal naartoe lopen.
Elena was very considerate, warmhearted and welcoming host. I felt very comfortable during my stay.
The room was spacious with the private bathroom was right outside the room which was very convenient. The wi-fi could get slow in the rooms but you're always welcome to hang out in the living room area where there's faster connection. Apartment is located near two subway stations in a safe area so it was convenient to get around.
But above all, I'm truly thankful to Elena for being a friend in a foreign city.
Elena did everything to make us feel welcome. She helped us where she could and took her time to explain all about Barcelona. And... she made coffee for us every morning! The room was what we expected. Simple, but clean and comfortable, as was the bathroom. The room is in the back, so you don't have any noise from the street at night.
Really nice place just off the main street. Superb location as it is near the metro and a short walk to Las Ramblas. The place was really comfortable and clean, just like in the pictures.
Elena was really helpful as a host by giving good recommendations on restaurants and attractions!
Would definitely stay here again in Barca !
Внимательные и доброжелательные хозяева — Елена и Зинаида. Чувствовала у них, как дома. Всегда готовы помочь и подсказать, как лучше добраться до того или иного места. Можно было воспользоваться утюгом, кухней, холодильником. Елена по моей просьбн любезно согласилась зарегистрировать меня по интернету на авиарейс.
Из того, что омрачило отдых: постоянный шум от мощного кондиционера в сососеднем доме (он находится очень близко). При открытом окне заснуть было сложно. А если окноь не открывать — очень жарко: кондиционер в квартире находится в дальней комнате. В комнате был вентилятор, но он не решал проблему.
Elena's apartment is in the best neighborhood of Barcelona called Borne. It is a few steps from the best restaurants and bars and is filled with warm and friendly people. Elena and her mom are very warm, hospitable, and extremely kind. The apartment is impeccably clean... so clean...it is better than a 5 star hotel. I felt at home here and hope to stay in Elena's casa again during my next trip to Barcelona!
Мы выбирали жилье через airbnb первый раз - и отлично сделали свой выбор!!! Замечательные хозяева, ненавязчивые, отзывчивые! Всегда можно было обратиться.
Комната отличная. Чисто. Все необходимое имеется. Не жарко. Что немаловажно, так как отдыхали в августе. Очень полюбилась веранда. Постоянно завтракали там )))
Расположение - лучше не придумаешь. Практически не пользовались метро, так все в пешей доступности. До монжуика, до центральной площади 10/15 минут пешком.
В общем , огромное спасибо Елене и Зинаиде за прекрасный отдых. Мы будем вас рекомендовать друзьям и возможно приедем сами еще раз, только уже с дочей )
My friend and I really enjoyed our time with Elena and her mother Zinaida. They are very friendly. The location is really good, just 5 minutes from Urgell metro station. And 10-minute walk to Placa Catalunya. The room is very clean and comfortable. There was also a private bathroom with shower, which is brilliant. We can also use kitchen, balcony, washing machine etc. Zinaida gave us a lot of information about traveling in Barcelona, the traffic, beautiful place and delicious food. It is a simple, clean, cozy room with very pleasant hosts. Thank you very much, we will recommend it to our friends!
Elena is a very good host as she is very hospitable. She gave us very helpful directions and tips and suggestions for restaurants. The place is very clean, and the washroom is conveniently located right beside the room. The room and washroom are separated from the rest of the apartment, so it provides a lot of privacy. Elena also allowed us to used the kitchen, so it was nice to make breakfast in the quiet apartment. I will stay at Elena's place again.
We had the best time staying at Elena's apartment!
We liked the fact that we had a comfy bed to sleep in, a private cozy bathroom and in the same time shared living room, kitchen and balcony.
There was almost no noises in the bedroom so we could relax in perfect conditions. We were allowed to cook in the kitchen and to have some space in the fridge to keep our food cold. Also, we enjoyed having tee/coffee on the balcony.
The apartment is near La Rambla, 5 minutes away, in a very nice zone, having all the shops/pubs near it.
Elena and her mother are the best hosts ever! Not also they treated us very very nice, but in the same time they gave us a lot of advises: what we should visit in Barcelona, how to get to each attraction, where to buy tickets and so on.
We thank them again for everything! :)
Elena was a wonderful guest, very punctual didnt let me worry at all when she was arriving I always knew where she was and I swear the house was bit cleaner when she left it.
Iam only sorry I didnt get to know her and her friend bit more due to me twisting my ancle and not being able to get back before they had to leave. Definitely if she is coming again to valencia Id love to host them again and hopefully get to know each other a bit more .
