Marko and Tina were fantastic hosts. The apartment was located in an absolutely perfect spot, really close to beach and within easy walking distance from all the attractions in the Gothic Quarter. It had all the cooking utensils we needed and was very cosy. All in all had a great stay and would recommend it again!
Marko's wife Tina checked us in. She was very friendly, polite and helpful. We kept in regular contact with Marko throughout our stay and he was very helpful and quick to respond. The apartment was exactly as described. It was in an excellent location, only a short 2 minute walk from the beautiful seafront of Barceloneta and the metro station. There is an excellent array of restaurants and bars in the vicinity. The wi-fi connection was excellent! The check in and check out process was very simple and straightforward. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would recommend this to anyone looking for a good value apartment in Barcelona.
The reservation was canceled 160 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very nice stay in a central location. Lots of stairs though and water pressure in shower doesn't work.
Very welcoming host and great place to be when around Las Ramblas. Might have to be careful of pickpockets around this area, but overall great experience.
Markos Apartment is perfect situated in Barcelona. You can walk to the beach in about 5 minutes and the Metro is also not far away. Marko was an amazing host, I can definitely recommend his Apartment!
Marko was very friendly and helpful. The apartment's location is very good. it is very close to barcelonata beach and there are markets and restaurants near the apartment too. but this good location cause trouble sometimes. Especially in mornings it's very hard to sleep because of the noise and since there's no air conditioner in the apartment you need to sleep while windows are open. And also the apartment is pretty small, especially the toilet and the bathroom.
The Flat was clean and the terrace was great.
But the wifi dit not work.
Everything went very well. Mark met us at the arranged time, and gave us a quick tour of the house. He told us to contact him for any problems or questions. Barceloneta was a great place to be. Close to everything.
The appartment was great - very clean, and a good size for two.
However, we found the host really rather intimidating and unhelpful.
After making the initial booking, I got in touch with Marko to confirm the check-in time, and for more specific address details. He did not reply for a few days, so I texted him, and then emailed him seperately, worried that it might be a scam. He eventually replied and told me to 'take it easy', which I found rather patronising.
Then, on the day of arrival, we were admittedly running a few hours late. We let him know this, but were met with some very abrupt messages, and a very impatient tone, not offering any help with directions, and sounding very annoyed when we couldn't find the street on the map. Even when we explained this, it took 5 seperate phone conversations before he offered any more help/details on the location of the flat. Eventually, we established that we had gone to Carrer Bot, rather than Carrer Botella, and eventually found the flat. When he buzzed us in, he stood at the top of the stairwell chanting 'late, late girls', which we found both patronising and intimidating. He then gave us a brief tour of the flat before rushing off to his next appointment.
The next day, we decided to make the most of the roof terrace by having our breakfast outside. However, the host had failed to tell us that the door to the roof top locks automatically unless you fasten it to the catch, and so we found ourselves locked out on the roof top, in the blazing sun, for a good hour, with no water, shouting for help. Thankfully, somebody in the building heard us and came to help, otherwise, we could have been stuck for days.... This is something that he really should have warned us about upon arrival.
Marko is a very helpfull and easy going man. He is clean, quiet and responsible person. He take care of all yours friends and collegues. I definitely recomend him as a host.
