The flat is located on the fourth floor of an old building in a little street a couple of metres from the Plaça Reial and La Rambla, i.e. right in the centre of Barri Gotic. It is made up of one big room with a bed, cupboards, an alcove where the kitchen is, and a separate bathroom with toilets and a bathtub.
While at first we were only surprised by the amount of dust, we came to realize that the flat was quite dirty and in a general state of decay ; there were traces of seepage around the window, on the curtains and on the ceiling (but they were hidden by cardboard bits). There was quite a musty smell to the place, the sheets had not been cleaned and I strongly suspect that there were bugs. At the end of our stay, we did not feel healthy.
In short, if you do not care about hygiene then go for it, because the flat is ideally located for for anyone wishing to visit the city, go to the beach (Barceloneta beach is only 15 min away by foot) and party. However, you must realise that this is the heart of one of the most frequented districts, so people who don't like crowded streets should avoid staying in this neighbourhood. The streets can get quite noisy at night due to the high number of bars and nightclubs around.
Found the apartment fantastic, great location, host was very friendly and helpful, apartment wasn't the cleanest, could do with a good scrubbing all over, otherwise very happy with stay.
The best location, practically on the Rambala and a short walk to the beach. Great kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities in the flat. Across the street from several food shops and laundrette. Good stay, thanks.
Not satisfactory at all. Bed was not really clean, it could even had bugs. The whole place was very old and dusty. Inadequate is a word for this place. Will never stay there again. The neighborhood was pretty loud even on saturday morning, and talking around 7.30-8am, people screaming. We could hear the neighbors tv, their conversations, everything. The location of the apartment is really close to La Rambla, which it could be a good thing, but the street it is, it's not safe. The door has a pretty bad lock, anybody can just break in and steal all your stuff if they want to.
The apartment is in a really excellent location in Barcelona: between Plaza Jaume I and Las Ramblas; on the 3rd floor (or 4th? I can't remember right now) of a tipical building and the spaces are well organized. Kipras was very kind and helped us with the check-in. The apartment wasn't very clean and there was nothing in the house to be able to do it ourselves, but not a big deal, we were only for a weekend. The wi-fi worked great, the bed was comfortable, the place is quiet, very nice and close to every facilities: supermarket, bycicles for rent, pharmacies, shops, bars, restaurants, etc.
We had a nice stay, thank you Kipras!
L'appartement de Kipras est idéalement située dans une ruelle du centre ville juste coté de la place real. Un ami de Kipras nous a donné les clés et nous a montré l'appartement.
Celui-ci était vraiment propre et spacieux avec une clim et une petite cuisine.
We had a great time in Barcelona. The flat had a good location for everyone who would like to be close to the beach. Unfortunately the apartment could be in a better shape. The kitchen table was falling apart, the shower was floting over when we arrived(i fixed it), and the place could have been better cleaned. Kipras was not easy to contact before our arrivel, send him a message on airbnb, mail and sms without answear. But when we called we got in toutch with his friend. Recomend the apartment if Kipras fix the things. It was cosy with the small porch, and the closness for everything from the beach to nice restaurants. So would stay there again if the flat got some more love:) ...
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Kipras' apartment is located in a very convenient location - next to the beach and the metro. We found it very clean and as expected from the pictures.
Communication was great, Kipras was always very responsive to our emails. He was nalso kind enough to bear with us with a late check-in (11pm), even though he told us only the day before we flew to Barcelona that there was a 20 euro fee for late checkin that I didn't see on the ad at all.
Overall - very satisfied!
It was awful!
We were met by the friend of Kipras. The elevator didn't work, so we should drag our heavy bags to 5th floor and that guy didn't even help us.
You won't find any wi-fi in the apartment — neither free nor paid.
In the window there will be a view to the opposite building wall in a distance of 1,5 m.
The tap hole in the bathroom is loaded so you'll need to take a shower in 3 min, because the water isn't discharged.
If you'd like to have a tea, you should boil water in a can — there is no electric kettle.
You'll be feeling a slight smell in the apartment — permanently — something strange.
From evening to late night you'll be listening everything that happens outdoors and at your neighbors — the center of Barcelona is very active, believe us! (On the last night a jack-hammer was rumbling right under our windows from 11pm to 1am!!)
What is more — this street will be served at night as a toilet by locals — so meet the fragrance.
And the worst is that on 3rd day the gas ran out and we were keeping without hot water and stove. When we wrote about it to Kipras, he just apologized and said that he would ask his worker to fix it. But nothing changed.
So if you wanna spend your vacation as good as you wish — look for something better.
Kippraas's sister was very respectful traveler, she is a nice people. You can trust her.
A great guest with his family!
Un séjour discret avec des locataires formidables, jeunes et sympathiques!
Una família molt agradable, teanquila i gens sorollosa! En tot moment han mantingut la seva intimitat.
La llàstima ha sigut l'idioma. No hem pogut mantenir una bona comunicació. No obstant ens hem entès i crec pel que hem pogut parlar amb signes i amb angles q l'estancua a casa ha sigut molt bona per (website hidden) encantada !!!
