I'm from London originally but lived in Barcelona for over 10 years.
Lived in an apartment for a month. The apartment was not big, but very comfortable and clean. Just a wonderful location, close to the subway, five minutes on foot beach, near many supermarketov.V next time in Barcelona, it is only in this lovely apartment.
The apartment is very nice! Its just 10min walk to the beach and the surrounding area offers everything you need, from local butchers, to pastries and vendors selling fresh fruit. You need just 10min to the city center when you take the subway.
It was a great stay and for a vacation in Barcelona I would definitely book it again. Emily, the hosts friend welcomed us and was very nice and flexible regarding the check-in and check-out!
We had a great time at Joanna's apartment. Mainly due to the location, facilities and the ease of the whole experience!
The aparment is one street over from a main pedestrian road that has retail shops and restaurants, some of restaurants had pretty poor survive so we used the supermarket nearby to do our own cooking. The kitchen in the apartment was equipped enough for us to make some nice healthy dinners over the four nights we were there. As its on the second floor we didn't hear hardly any street noise which was great as my mum is a light sleeper. The two bedrooms had fantastic blinds that made it completely dark to have a sleep in, which was very nice. It was very hot during our stay but there was air conditioning in the apartment that made a difference. Although the apartment is a little run down it was a very pleasant place to stay and feels very homely! The only downside was the distance to the beach which was about a 10/15 minute walk, but that is a very small issue. I knew there wasn't any Internet in the apartment before we got however this would have been a big bonus as roaming fees are very expensive! Overall my mum and I had an amazing experience in Joanna's flat and would recommend it as a stress free, lovely stay in Barcelona! Thank you!

Best experience was Peter, a friend of the owner who handed over the keys and helped us later on in an emergency. One of the nicest people ever met.
