We descided to return to Juan´s apartment in barrio gótico this year since we had such a great stay there last year. Everything was as nice as then and maby even better since Juan had changed some small things like getting a better stove and better WiFi.
We love this apartment with its spectacular view and big terrace. Once again we loved every morning waking up feeling we had the perfect stay, having breakfast outside in the open air or just having another glass of cava in the evening. We loved being close to the beach and at the same time in the center.
Juan is a very kind person and made us feel welcome when we arrived.
We would love to stay there again.

Juan was the ideal landlord and friend - interesting and interested, attentive yet discreet, always helpful and kind. You couldn't ask for a better host. After four months I still hadn't finished admiring the view and you should know that this loft flat is just three houses away from Casa Cervantes, where Spain's most eminent writer spent two years. Perched between the Gothic and the sea (which you can also make out from the terrace) you can't go wrong and have the best of both worlds. Magic light. Highly recommended and thank you so much Juan. Hasta la vista.
Juan was a top class host. Making sure we had everything we needed, even sun screen. The apartment was very nice, quiet and clean. Lovely terrace! The beds are very comfortable. Everything we needed was there including a nice bathroom. The area is very pleasent too. Good bars/restaurants. We would definitely go back to Juan's apartment!
I had a great stay at the flat and Juan was a great host. He was very kind and helpful! I would definitely stay at this flat again as it was clean, the view was great, and the location (close to the beach) was great as well.
This flat was an excellent choice for our stay, and Juan was an great host. The itself flat is cozy and straightforward, and has all of the basics that one might need. It has a wonderful terrace that is perfect for relaxing and taking in the views. Above all else, it's the location of this flat that really makes it shine. Everything is within walking distance: La Barcoloneta, the beach, shops, bars, pubs, shopping, nightlife, public transport, sights, and on and on. Juan was very friendly and available if we needed anything, and gave us some great getting started advice when we arrived. Would definitely stay there again.
We visited Barcelona with my best friend on her 30th birthday in Sept13. We had a great time, and loved the terrace and the apartment that had everything we needed. The location is great, and there are a lot of nice restaurants, bars and grocery store on the street, that is car free. No noise in the apartment since its on the attic and its very nice and quite. Juan had thought about everything, fresh towels, beach towels that could be used, even a book in spanish-english! Juan was travelling when we arrived, but his nice friend Ato let us in, and that worked perfectly and was no problem! I recommend the area and the apartment. It is in the city, and still close to the beach!
Juan's apartment was so wonderful, the terrace being the best place to relax and enjoy the Barcelona sun and city landscape. Small kitchen and bedroom (with two single beds) but the private rooftop terrace was larger then the whole apartment, and it has cushions on which to relax. Juan was out of town for most of our stay but his friend Ato was such fun and made sure we had everything we needed. You will definitely get a workout going up the flights of stairs to get to the apartment, but who doesn't want thighs of steel?!
Me and my friend were in this flat second time! And i hope we will return again. We like Barcelona, Juan and this flat! Juan makes our vacation comfortable! Thank you very much dear Juan and the same to Ato ;)))

We stayed for 5 nights and it was perfect! The terrace is amazing and the flat is spotless and has everything you need! The area is fantastic, close to everything. Just keep in mind you need to climb lots of stairs to get to the flat. Juan is a very helpful and thoughtful host. Very much recommended!!!
We had a wonderful stay at Juan's place.
The apartment was a little small (but that was said in description already) but the balcony was huge! Very very nice to see the whole city and just have your own place to tan.
I must say the 100+ stairs were a killer. With no elevator, I would only recommend this to people with above average condition.
The place is close to everything, so if you want to see the city, this is a good place to start!
Right next to the Big post office... you can miss it!!
Ha sido un placer alojar a los padres de Juan Maldonado en nuestro apartamento. Personas atentas y encantadoras, con quienes hemos tenido una excelente comunicación para poder atenderles y solventar algunos detalles con el fin de que pudieran sentirse como en su propia casa. Han respetado escrupulosamente las normas y el cuidado del apartamento, dejándolo limpio y ordenado. Juan y sus padres, son, en definitiva, unos excelentes huéspedes que recomendamos absolutamente.
