Ricardo was an absolutely wonderful host! His apartment was as described- amazing views of the Marina, 5 min walk to El Born, great restaurants around the area, the beach just a few short blocks away and the Barceloneta metro stop made it very convenient to get to other parts of the city. There is one thing though- the apartment is on the 5th floor of a low-rise building, so it can be quite noisy with the late night revelers, motor-bikes, and sanitation trucks at the early hours in the morning-- but nothing that a pair of earplugs can't solve!
Ricardo was very helpful in giving recommendations and gave us lots of privacy as well. His apartment is very clean and organized. He has great taste in music too! Two thumbs up for the 'Amazing View' apartment!
Our stay at Ricardo's place was very enjoyable..The apartment is well located on the marina, close to the beach and within easy walking distance to the old town and the main centre. Ricardo was an excellent host: answering questions and giving good recommendations, helping us book and print train tickets, ect. He was very pleasant to chat with over a drink or two..We recommend staying at his apt..
We cannot say enough lovely things about Ricardo and his apartment. The location was perfect, the room was beautiful and he made us feel so welcome in his home. Not only was he helpful with advice about the city but he let us leave our valuables with him while we travelled around Spain and happily gave us a refund when we mistakenly double booked a night. We'll definitely be back when we next visit! Ali and Jenn.
Ricardo was a great host, offering us information on places to visit, his favorite personal restaurants, and a home with beautiful views of the marina and downtown Barcelona at sunset. He also helped us out a great deal when the airline lost our luggage. We enjoyed the location in Barceloneta with a very local feel at the neighborhood Mercado and bread store. Highly recommended!
Ricardo was very helpful and nice and his place is beautiful and immaculate. Views are amazing. A fantastic experience!
We had a great time staying at Ricardo's. Nice room with great view, clean place and a very nice host. Ricardo gave us cool recommendations for restaurants and places to visit beyond all available city guides. Thanks again for all, Ricardo!
Ricardo was a very kind and accommodating host and the room was clean and comfortable (with the great view that was promised). On top of that, the location was a quick and easy walk to the center of town, so definitely a great place to stay!
Ricardo took great care of us. Very clean place with a nice view and perfect location.
Ricardo's home was clean, roomy, and comfortable. Ricardo himself was a wonderful host. He was accomodating, helpful, and kind. The location was incredible, with a close walk to the beach, the city center, food market, and train station. We would love to return!
The best host......the best place in terms of location, view, cleanliness, kindness, secure, .........The best..... went to City park hotel and then to Catlania Hotel and by far this was the best. I will recommend this to any one. It is good for metro and bus and food market.........I loved it
