Didn't get to stay at Valen's in Barcelona for my 50th as the flight was cancelled due to the French air traffic control strike. So I can't tell you how the stay would have been. However, what I can say is that the communication leading up our denature was excellent - prompt and full of help and advice. It certainly made us feel like we were going to enjoy ourselves, which made the disappointment greater for not getting there. We will defiantly rebook with Valen when we do make it back to Barcelona.
What can I say, fantastic apartment perfect for a family of 4 like ours - my kids (6 and 5) thought it was better than home! Valen was a superb host, great information provided and communications.
The flat is in the perfect area a short walk from Pl Catalunya and the Cathedral (get the A1 Aerobus from the airport straight to Pl Catalunya and you will be in the flat within 40mins of getting through passport control). We walked from the flat with the kids to Sagrada Famillia, Montjuic, the beach, Magic fountains, everywhere! Used the T10 tickets to go further afield (L2 to the Camp Nou) and to come back - the metro is great all one zone so no messing about with tickets.
I cannot praise Valen enough both before and during our trip. The information provided before was great, very comprehensive and he was outside the flat to meet us bang on time. Even better than that was when something went wrong (hot water/boiler breakdown). Valen was around in minutes and it was fixed immediately. Truly brilliant.
I would highly recommend the flat and Valen as a host. We will definitely be back to explore some more.
Valens hat uns im Vorfeld bereits sehr nützliche Informationen zu Standort und Barcelona gegeben. Wir haben die Wohnung sehr gut gefunden, und sie liegt sehr zentral in einem ruhigen und unbefahrenen Quartier. Sie entspricht exakt den Bildern und Beschreibungen von Airbnb. Wir haben unseren Trip sehr genossen. Herzlichen Dank an den Gastgeber.
Valen is very nice. He shared with us many useful information before our departure. His apartment is very easy to find, only 5 mins walk to Catalunya metro, and also very quite at night. We enjoyed very much our stay in Barcelona. It's clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!
The apartment was beautiful and in an ideal location. We enjoyed the feel and look of the apartment, and within walking distance of so many attractions - we couldn't have asked for better! Valen was informative and very friendly the entire process, with many recommendations that we found extremely helpful. The city itself was amazing, but staying in such a wonderful place really did ensure the trip was a pleasant one! Thank you very much :)
Valen was the greatest host we had in our one month trip trhough Spain, very friendly and available. The apartment is an amazing location, walking distance to some of best attractions, and 2 min from Plaza de Catalunya. The apartment is spacious, clean, with many facilities. Very quite and calm. And different from most, it has elevator.
My wife and I throughly enjoyed our stay at Valen's flat. The location couldn't be more perfect for exploring the older parts of Barcelona and accessing the rest of the city via the metro is quite easy too. The flat is quite spacious for the price, is very clean, and has all the amenities one would need. It can be a little loud at night, but this is to be expected when staying in the heart of Barcelona's nightlife. Valen was a great host. He was always very prompt and thorough in his communication leading up to our stay. Meeting him to access the flat was easy and as he instructed. He also provided us with a lot of recommendations for things to do and places to eat in the neighborhood and beyond. If you are planning to visit Barcelona, I highly recommend staying here!
Apartment was very clean and spacious. Valen was an excellent host and helped me with all my questions. Location is excellent!
Valen's place is centrally located in the Gothic neighbourhood with really easy access to Placa Catalunya for the airport bus, La Rambla and a variety of important tourist attractions. A really good spot!!!
Valen was very welcoming and provided us with recommendations for restaurants. Communication was fast, clear and the checkin procesd was quick and professional.
The flat itself is bright, clean and spacious for two, however we found the light coming through the window quite bothersome both at night and in the mornings due to the blinds not being fully blackedout.
The flipside of being centrally located, is that the street sounds aren't ideal for light sleepers. On that note, you should note that the double bed is in fact two single beds.
I absolutely loved Valen's flat in the heart of Barcelona. It was literally within walking distance of La Rambla in the Gothic Quarter, within many restaurants and shopping stores. The metro underground is a five-minute walk to Plaza Catalunya and the buses are within vicinity as well. The flat was clean and spacious with French doors that open to the balcony. Wifi was no issue and the beds were comfortable. Valen was even kind enough to look for my friend and I when where first locating the flat. It may be a little noisy at night and there was a neighbor's barking dog, but that is not Valen's fault and should not deter you in any way. I will come to Barcelona again soon and will sure want to book with this flat once again.
The apartment is really amazing and the location unbeatable: its in the center of the gothic quarter where all the shops are and its next to a nice little park. The street is quiet at night and the place is full of light during the day: truly a jewel. I have been to Barcelona many times and tried out different apartments and areas and this one is the best Ive stayed in. The owner was very nice and helpful. I arrived late and found a warm smile, some fresh fruit and goodies waiting for me. He gave me great tips on nearby places and made me feel at home. Very cool and highly recommended!
