Ven a conocer Barcelona y disfruta todos sus encantos. Seguro que será una experiencia que no te decepcionará en absoluto!
Juan was charming and waited for us even though we arrived late. He was quite helpful and forthcoming with information. Unfortunately the tourist passes he sold to us for a couple of euros were from last year and not valid anymore. Which was some what of an inconvenience.
His accommodation is centrally located, clean but lacking any extra comforts. Toilet half came out of wall, shower was just adequate and the beautiful large terrace only features two basic chairs. The "living room" is furnished with two chairs and a wooden bench.
Written communication was not easy with Juan, me writing in english to him and him answering in spanish. Neither of us speaking spanish.

Response from Juan Alfonso:
No te preocupes, cuando lo necesites hare lo imposible para que lo tengas y si no te buiscare otro que tambien podras disfrutar
gracias un abrazo
The flat is nicely situated in the Born district close to many tourist landmarks, small cafes, restaurants and interesting artisanry shops.
The street in which the loft is located in is quite busy, however, there is absolutely no noise to be heard inside the appartment - it is very quiet. Since the appartment lies in the top floor of an old building keep in mind that you will have to walk up some faily steep stairs.
The inside of the appartment was decorated as shown on the images. It is a modern and clean appartment and everything worked fine.
Juan was an excellent host and handing over the keys worked perfectly well.
Juan Alfonso. Es muy amable. Ha sido una pena que el apartamento estaba ya ocupado. Espero que la proxima vez sea possible reservarlo.
Muchas geacias. Laura
This lodging actually looked like the photos! What a terrific verandah with a view that went to the old cathedral! Juan could not have been more hospitable. He even went out and BOUGHT an alarm clock for us! Very comfortable bed. Very clean and private with nice little communal kitchen. Only flaw was a LITTLE peeling paint in the bathroom which he is about to fix. I would definitely come back and recommend this to others. Lovely to have a safe quiet secure spot in a bustling neighborhood.

We had a great time in Barcelona and we really enjoyed the appartement. Everything was perfect - especially that big terasse. Juan was really nice and helpful. We already recommended the appartement to our friends and we will definitly come back!
One thing you should definitly do in Barcelona: Rent a bike and make a trip to the beach! It's phantastic! :)

Juan Alfonso is very nice and responsive. Although we did not stay at the Palau de la Musica Loft, he arranged for us to stay at his City Center location. It had a tiny kitchen, nice balcony, and the rooms were decent. Good experience overall.
Juan greeted us warmly and explained all about the flat and the local area. The flat was clean and looks exactly like the photos. It was air-conditioned, which wasn't actually needed for us but good to know. We were two but there was also a sofa bed and a foldout bed if you are going with friends and don't mind open living. The flat is on the 3rd floor with no lift so make sure you don't pack a heavy bag. overall the flat was great with a brilliant location for us. The only slightly annoying thing was the bathroom was very dark, so difficult to see in the mirror, but that's all. I would definitely recommend to a friend. Thanks Juan
