I am an Australian architect living in Barcelona for many years. Hope to see you soon!
The apartment is very well located close to the Ramblas. In general the aparment was as described however it felt a little run down with some scale on bathroom taps, some rust here and there and chopped off wooden pieces. Nothing major but not the level you would expect for what you pay.
The boiler hot water were not enough for two to shower unless you do it real quick.
The rest was very nice - well equipped kitchen, nice bed an dcomfortable table and chairs.One thing that bothered us was the humming coming out ot the electricity box when turning on the heating but it will only disturb the noise sensitive characters :)
The street was also according to the description, many shady characters however we felt less secure than we thought we would be with occasional running into vomit on the street, some screaming and one time we had a drunk breaking into the building when we left it in the morning. On the other hand there's a very cool bar just a few doors away!
Kimberly was very kind, communication was super fast and she waited for us in the apartment at the time we have set, giving us full explanations on the apartment (and she was kind enough to wave off a mug that we accidentally broke)
All in all we liked the apartment and the host. but I would reconsider staying on "El Raval" below l'Hospital St. and I would expect the apartment will be a little better kept.
We did not approach Kimberly on any of the above as it wasn't that important to us but I'm sure she would have atended to it if we did.

Kim has a lovely apartment, with a charming balcony, in an excellent location in Barcelona. Kim herself was very helpful with transporation advises and dining recommendations. Highly recommended.
We loved staying at Kimberley's apartment. It was right in the center of things, but in a small street, making you feel like you actually live in Barcelona. The apartment felt very clean and we had everything we needed there. Would definitely stay there again.
Our stay in Barcelona at Kims place was wonderful! It was a nice atmosphere, it was quite even though were were located near the Center! Thanks for all the additional Information she gave us about the neighborhood. I can recommend staying there!!!
We booked Kimberley's apartment for 3 days and had a great time in Barcelona.
The location is perfect to visit by foot the city center. The street is quite noisy but it's always the case when you want to be in the center of Barcelona. The apartment is well equiped, everything is consistent with the description.
kim was a perfect host, nothing to complain!
Como la vez anterior, todo estupendo, Kim es una anfitriona excelente y el sitio está perfectamente cuidado, actualizado y limpio... Muchas gracias!!!
It was really great, only the street noise was a little annoying. We stayed for a week and will come back for sure if we are in Barcelona!!
Thanks Kim you were a great hosed and the house had everything we expected!
Kim's apartment was truly lovely! It was spacious, bright, and clean and the perfect way to feel like a Barcelonan during our trip. It's close to some really great places on Parliment Street and a nice walk from all the tourist neighborhoods and destinations. We had an amazing stay and loved Barcelona, and Kim was so helpful by providing a bunch of recommendations, all of which were awesome.
We had a great time in Barcelona and this apartment was a big part of it. The location is extremely central and most places we wanted to visit were within walking distances.
The apartment is modern, well equipped, and Kim gave us great tips!
Kim and her friend were perfect guests.
Communication was easy and I have had no problems.
They were very respectful to my apartment and I will book with pleasure at other times.
Very nice guest, do not hesitate to host her! I hope Kim will return to us one day.
A great guest ! Respectful, constructive and communicative. Kim also informed me about one or two small things that were to fix in the apartment. Thank you Kim !
I didn't meet Kim as I was abroad during her stay in paris, but all our exchanges by email were very nice. When I arrived at home after a long travel I found everything in order. She let the flat tidy and clean,the sheets we washed and hung to dry, the used towels placed in the laundry basket. She let me two new wine glasses, that she bought before discovering mine in another cupboard.
I really recommend her if you are looking for someone to trust in, she is very nice and respectfull.
Kim you are welcome if you want to come back!
