I am an Australian architect living in Barcelona for many years. Hope to see you soon!
The apartment is beautiful and looks exactly like the photos. Kimberley was very friendly and accommodating as well. WiFi is super fast, the shower pressure was great, and the washer was awesome.
We definitely preferred this over any hotel you can get in Barcelona. Its near all the walkable attractions, but is in a very quiet non-touristy area. This is huge, because all the bars and restaurants nearby are genuinely Spanish, priced cheap(!), and yummy.
The terrace was truly the most beautiful feature, which made our breakfasts bright and sunny, and our evenings cool and relaxing. Every amenity was new, fully functional, and very convenient.
We look forward to coming back to BCN and staying here again.
We can highly recommend a stay at Kim's apartment. The spacious and tasteful apartment, the fantastic location and Kim being a great and helpful host really made our stay in Barcelona perfect. Especially the list that Kim sent us before with all the tips and hints regarding sights and restaurants made our holiday even better. We were 5 people arriving late at night, and instead of going in 2 taxi´s Kim had in advance booked us a big Taxi that took us straight to the apartment at a very reasonable price. And off course the wonderful terrace just makes it more atractive to stay in and eat breakfast og dinner or just relax and chill after a day around the city.
Highly recommended, Kim was very welcoming and the apartment was fantastic and exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Kim provided loads of useful info about the local area. Thanks again!
Amazing space, right in the city center! We love it! We will be back for sure!
Super week-end à Barcelone... Un grand merci à Kim pour son accueil, ses bons plans et sa disponibilité. Nous ne pouvons que recommander son appartement, tranquille, fonctionnel, à 2 pas du métro, 10' du centre et avec sa terrasse très agréable.
We had a great stay. The appartement is not extremely spacious, but the floor plan is well thought off and created a relaxt and comfortable atmosphere.
An incredible apartment right in the middle of Barcelona (we didn't find the area seedy/edgy at all as per previous comments, but maybe because we are both from London and used to a certain degree of seedious!?) felt very at home and safe. Had everything we needed, Kim showed us all round her flat. The cleanest airbnb apartment I have stayed in, by far. I personally found the outside street noise hard even with the doors all closed, my cousin slept like a baby, so each to their own I guess. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kim's apartment to anyone else coming to Barcelona!
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.
Abbiamo passato 5 gg fantastici a barcellona anche grazie al fantastico ,caldo e superaccessoriato appartamento di Kim situato a pochi metri dalla rambla e dalla fermata della (website hidden) è gentilissima e disponibilissima .lo consiglio a tutti.saluti luca
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.
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!
