Very nice and clean apartment close to the city center. Fernando was a welcoming and friendly host!
Fernando's a great host who was incredibly friendly, quick to reply to our messages, and very helpful and accommodating.
We had a fantastic four night stay in the apartment, which was lovely, clean, tidy, and brilliantly located right in the centre of the El Raval neighbourhood, close to loads of great bars and restaurants.
We'd happily recommend Fernando and his apartment to anyone planning to visit Barcelona.
First of all: Fernando was really fast in replying any questions and has been very polite and helpfull. Gracias!
His appartment in El Raval is a nice hub to explore the city of Barcelona: near to the Sant Antoni metro, easy to access from El Prat Aeropuerto and close to Montjuic and La Rambla.
It is an oldfashioned appartement which has been nicely made over, resulting in a mixture of 'grandma-stylish' floor and bathroom with modern design furniture and decoration.
The El Raval neighbourhood does not seem that nice at dark, but is quiet a vibrant place by day with many possibilities to eat (croissant and coffee for €2 only) and shop in the immediate surroundings.
We (three friends around their 30s) were in Barcelona the first week of March. I can recommend taking the train to nearby Sitges for the annual carnaval festivities.
Overall: Fernando offers a good price/quality value if you're travelling with three persons or more. I would go back.
Fernando's place has a perfect location if you wish to see by foot every important location in Barcelona. The apartment looks very good, it was clean, decorated with style and it has everything you need - you can cook, you can wash your clothes, you (email hidden), confy beds and couch, and all the details for your confort.
The stairs were not a problem for us, yes they are narrow but they are not impossible if you are young or just a sport's fan.
We came as 2 couples and lived at Fernando's for 11 days. Because of the bedroom separated by courtains and the small bathroom now I would say that the apartment would be much better suited for a small family or just a couple... We did not mind so much the courtains but the tiny bathroom, which is common for these old architecture buildings.
You should also know that the bedroom with the 2 beds has a balcony facing the street and this is why it is louder than the bedroom with the masterbed. However we did rest on our stay, so noise is not really a problem for this space. The walls are thin as you can hear your neighbours walking and this is why you should respect Ferando's rules and try not to bother the others with loud talking or music.
We had a bit of bad luck with a toilet incident, the building is old and also is the plumming ... but Fernando saved the day, he is very helpful and handy at the same time. He responded very quickly on airbnb e-mail and fixed it.
Fernando will give you the best advice and he will do his best to make your stay as confortable as possible.
We just had an amazing 3 nights stay at Fernando's apartment!
He is a super nice host who is really helpful, sympathetic and easy to contact.
The flat is super clean, very bright, designed with good taste and has got even more than what you need!
In addition, the good surprise was the big smart TV that enables you to listen to music from your Apple devices via Airplay & the Philips Ambilight that creates a nice atmosphere.
Small details make it great and Fernando spares no one ; )
Fernandos Apartment is great for a trip to Barcelona. When you want to fall out of the door and into the heartbeat of this wonderful city you are on the right place! Fernando is a wonderful person who helps you with any question you have and everything you need. I would and I will come back to your place! Highly recommended!!
Great place, great location and wonderful host - this sums up my experience with my stay at this apartment.
94 stairs with no (email hidden) watch out if you will carry huge luggages. However the apartment is very cozy, quiet, well-decorated and fully equipped, also located in the center of La Rambla. I miss the bed, its an extremely high-quality bed that gave me wonderful sleeps after long haul flight. Fernando is a friendly host and he lives just nearby, so he can help you on anything if needed. I certainly recommend the apartment to everyone who would like to visit Barcelona!
Fernandos place is a really good choice when visiting Barcelona! The location is PERFECT and the flat is very nice. I strongly recommend it.
I was in Barcelona for workpurposes, and shared the flat with a colleague for 1 week. We were very comfortable.
The place is quiet and equipped with what you need to cook simple meals and breakfast. I think the flat is very good for 2-2 friends, a couple/small family. For 4 adults it might be a bit small with only 1 bathroom and the drapes mentioned under "Note 1". However, I guess that thoose things might not be an issue at all to many people :-)
Note 1: The room with 2 beds is separated with drapes/curtains from the livingroom/kitchen area. This was not a problem for me (who slept there) since my room mate was very quiet if up before me in the morning.
Note 2: The stairs leading to 4th (3rd) floor can be too much for a person with difficulties to walk/move. They are also very narrow, but I made it both up and down with a "normal" suitcase.
The apartment was lovely.We were there for 4 nights and it was clean, nicely decorated and indeed spacious. We enjoyed it alot. The neighbourhood was also nice, with lots of places to eat or have a drink and places to do groceries. Very near to the city centre, we walked almost everywhere, but the subway was also close!
We had a great stay in Fernando's apartment and would stay there again when we go back to Barcelona.
La familia de Fernando fue muy correcta y tranquila, estaban de visita y creo que se sintieron como en casa ;-) gracias
I didn't received Fernando but his brother and wife, and even if it was a friend of mine who made check out, i haven't been really happy about his stay.
First, my friend forgot to show them the internet and washing machine, problem that was fixed a few hours after when she could answer her from being t work, so he sent right away a mail to airbnb, which delayed the payment of about a week. Then, the day of the check out, they already left when my friend arrived, and as she didn't had the keys, had to wait 40mn to Fernando to arrive, who wasn't even going to go make a proper check out, she has to ask him for that. The flat was really dirty, food on the floor, towels, hygiene paper. They moved a table from a room to another and didn't bother to put it back. They made a mess by unplugging an replugging all cables of TV and lamps and left it like that. Finally, as a coincidence, my drying machine stopped working after they left, thing that i can't prove was them, but weird...
So i can't advise to receive Fernando's family.
Fernando ha sido un huesped fantástico. Encontré la casa mejor que cuando me fui. Tuvimos comunicacion constante, todo estuvo perfecto. Muy educados y colaboradores, incluso me ayudaron con una pequeña reforma en casa mientras yo me encontraba de viaje. 100% recomendable!
Desde el primer momento Fernando dijo que sería tranquilo y silencioso y desde luego que ha cumplido con su palabra. Además también es anfitrión de AirBnB y entiendo que se ha comportado como desearía que se comportasen sus huéspedes. Además es una persona viajada y con grandes experiencias en la vida que contar. Voluntarioso y predispuesto a echar una mano siempre que haga falta. Es un huésped (e intuyo que también anfitrión) más que recomendable!!
Una persona muy cercana, amable e simpática. Quedamos encantados en conocerle y recomendamos a toda la gente.
Fernando is a nice, friendly and really polite guy! I would definitely recommend him as a guest!
I know him since 6 years ago, He's a funny, honest and helping personality. I love his loft in barcelona that he restored himself with a wonderful taste of the best sense of decoration. He is an open mind person and you will make of him a friend for sure!.
