Australian living in Barcelona.
Work in IT/Environment
Luke is a great host. He's friendly, welcoming and more than happy to help with any tourist queries. The room is big, clean and comfortable, spot on with his description. The location of the flat is superb. It is near the tube, so you can hop on that if you want to. But it is also within easy walking distance to Plaça de Catalunya, which is a central square from which you can walk down la Rambla to the Barri Gotic (Old Town). All in all, this made for a delightful stay in Barcelona.
This place couldn't be nicer. Seriously. Not only is Luke awesome, but so is the view from the gigantic private terrace. Also a plus is all the natural light in the apartment. It is clean and quiet and totally mellow. Cable TV in the living room if that's your thing. Free wifi works great as does the washing machine and there's lots of line to dry your clothes on. Stove is also great and easy to light and amazingly, there is a dishwasher. Swoon. The bedroom is big enough that it doesn't feel cramped at all and has plenty of storage space and a desk. The bathroom is clean, only fault there is the shower is a bit of a "spa" shower. Hot water goes in and out but not so bad. It's near lots of bars and cafes and grocery stores. Not exactly central but easy walk to the metro and a lovely walk to wherever else you want to go. Safe neighborhood and the elevator in the building works flawlessly. Friendly Luke and his 9 million Barcelona maps and books will make sure that you have a fantastic time here. I know I did!!
Luke and his girldfriend were perfect hosts, with good tips to visit the city. We spent good times on the terrasse, great chats and awesome view. The room is nice and quiet and the flat calm.
I stayed at Luke's flat in Barcelona for two months and I had the best time there! Luke is a wonderful host- he and his girlfriend made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I needed to have a great stay. They went out of their way to show me around and gave me tons of information about Barcelona. They really made my stay an amazing experience.
The flat itself is in a great location- very central and easy to reach most places. The best part is that the closest metro station is only 3 streets away and has two metro lines! There are also lots of great little shops and restaurants all within walking distance- Luke knows lots of places to eat so he's great at recommending places if you are looking for something to eat.
The guest bedroom is lovely, double bed, large wardrobes and a small desk. But of course the best part of the flat is the wonderful terrace with a great view of the hills to the north of Barcelona and Tibidabo. And of course the air conditioning- which was a life saver during the hot summer months!
I had an absolutely wonderful time at Luke's house and would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of staying there.
Luke y su pareja son unos muy buenos huéspedes, respetuosos y amables. Tienen curiosidad e interés inteligente en descubrir el lugar visitado. Ha sido un placer tenerlos en Dar Mima^^ y siempre serán bienvenidos. Esperamos volver a verlos!
Luke was a fantastic guest and left the penthouse in perfect condition. Come back any time Luke.
Luke is a very discreet guest, tidy and he left the place very clean. I enjoyed his stay even if due to our working ours we didn't see each other very much. I strongly recommend him and you're welcome anytime.
