I had a very good three-night stay here. Lorena was very friendly, gave good directions, always responded promptly, encouraged me to make myself at home, and recommended good restaurants and other places to go. The room has a small, but nice balcony overlooking a lively street. Great location, comfortable bed and room, friendly hosts.
Dear Lorena and Desy, i felt very at home in your apartment. Though it is not the newest, the surrounding is incredibly good, what is a big plus!
I would come back any time :-)
Gracie! Lorena & Desy! felt like home as soon as I arrived, I had some problem with my flight, came quite late from the original schedule but Lorena was very kind and very patience, waited until I arrived and showed me the place. Both Lorena & Desy, excellent communication, are friendly and helpful. I was so happy to stay here.
Excellent location, it is right in the middle of everything, whatever, wherever you need to visit, eat or walk to the beach! Highly recommend!
Lorena was nice and so was the room. The place is really central in Barcelona, walkable to almost all attractions. Except for the initial technical problem to find each other, everything was fine. For the price, I would say, this is good value.
Séjour super! l'appartement est idéalement situé, très agréable, très bien meublé et très spacieux, on s'y sent à l'aise! Desy et Lorena sont très sympas, elles préparaient un petit déjeuner le matin et Desy est même venu me chercher à l'arrêt de bus à mon arrivée. Je reviendrais avec plaisir et je recommande!
Lorena and Desi are great hosts! As first time being in Spain, I came not so prepared but they showed me around and kindly took me to watch a Flamenco in a local place. I had a great time in Barcelona and I'm already starting to miss it!
Me sentí como en casa literalmente: anfitrionas muy agradables, simpáticas y preocupadas por tu confort. La habitación tiene un buen tamaño, con todo detalle y la cama es comodísima.
Por poner alguna pega, el baño es algo reducido y las instalaciones un poco viejas, pero te puedes organizar bien y usarlo sin problema.
La ubicación es perfecta, a 5 minutos de la Plaça Catalunya, en pleno Gótico y muy cerquita del Borne y de La Barceloneta.
Si te quieres mover, a 1 minuto tienes la principal línea de metro y también para de autobús.
Desy was a great and very friendly host. I had a really nice stay at her and Lorena's place directly in the centre of Barcelona!
You have to be careful to find your way back once you first leave the house :) but Desy gave me a map and a short instruction when I arrived. The flat and rooms itself aren't modern, but really clean and thougtful furnished. I changed rooms when I arrived because I liked the little balcony at the other one and wanted to leave the courtyard in case someone wants to smoke inside (window opens to it and I'm a nonsmoker). This room was said to be more noisy but as it's an old house in the middle of a big city I didn't expect it to be the most quiet place on earth anyway. I took some earplugs and I didn't have any problems with that.
They have a really funny cat - I had some interesting conversations with her :D Ok, that sounds a bit weird, but I only stayed for a few days and Desy had a lot to do, so we hardly met at home. That's why I had time to observe their cat while having breakfast :P
... anyway it's a good place to stay and I can recommend it :)
Desy and her brother Adrian were very nice and friendly (as most Spanish people). I had a bad experience in les ramblas where my wallet was stolen and Adrian went with me to the police station, he was very helpful. The flat is in an old building situated in perfect spot where all attractions were around. The room was clean but not sunny. Highly recommended. Lastly, take care of pocketpickers.
Location is really good for travelers. Room was very clean. Desy was very nice and friendly. And Desy's family was nice too. Desy prepared breakfast for us. So we were able to eat breakfast. Me and my friend like Desy's apartment. If we go again to Barcelona, we want to stay this apartment again.
Lorena and Alex are very friendly and enthusiastic travelers .

No tuve el placer de conocerle ya que estaba de viaje, Pero Pauline y Tibo quienes estuvieron a cargo, hablaron maravillas de Lorena y Alex. La comunicacion fue excelente, Intercambiamos E mails y llamadas basicamente para decirme que extendían su estancia. Un placer tenerlos en casa kei y es un gusto recomendarlos ampliamente.
Lorena es una persona muy simpática y acogedora. Su piso esta muy bien ubicado, cerca de casi todas las atracciones turísticas, se puede ir andado a casi todas partes, aparte de estar en el centro de todo es muy silencioso. Cualquier duda que tengas ella intentara ayudarte a resolverla. Great appartment and great host, if you choose to go to her place you won't certanly be dissapointed
Lorena es muy muy buena anfitriona, cuida hasta el ultimo detalle y eso hará que vuestra estancia sea muy cómoda, es muy difícil que todo este bien al 100% cuando uno llega a un alojamiento pero ella con su empeño lo consigue!!! Por otro lado la ubicación de la casa es simplemente ESPECTACULAR y esto unido a los consejos de Lore hará que tengáis unas vacaciones inolvidables.
Lorena es un cielo .. atenta y muy cariñosa .. Siempre sonriendo... Ambos son una pareja que os transmitirá muy buen rollo... Ademas Barcelona se puede conocer de mil maneras y estoy segura que con ellos os enamorareis de esta linda ciudad compartiendo agradables momentos con ellos.. Y en lo que necesitéis os ayudaran..
Mi "hermanita" es un amor de persona. Te ayudará en todo lo que necesites y siempre tendrá una sonrisa para ti. Estoy seguro que no te defraudará como anfitriona y compartirá contigo buenos momentos para que tu estancia en su hogar sea un gran recuerdo por tu paso por él. No dudes en aprovechar su conocimiento del mundo y de la vida.
I knew Lorena in Andalusia ten years ago; since then I've maintained a good friendship with her. She hosted me in Madrid for a couple of weeks (and I did the same in my city, Turin): on that occasions I spent a great great time and she always made me feel at home.
It's relatively easy to describe Lorena: she's sunny and smiley, of a contagious happiness and a relaxed, worm and balanced lively calm. Her relaxed mood was reverberating on her house, which was pleasantly cozy and welcoming. You can easily notice the energy and the intelligence in her shiny look: surely, she is a pleasant and trusty person, a kind of person with whom you feel naturally at ease. I'm more then sure of her kindness and good will, so as I'm confident that her boyfriend must necessarily be a lovely person: consequently, I'm more then happy and convinced to recommend them as hosts!
Amazing! The house is very well located, in the center of Barcelona. The guys are fantastic and make you feel at home all the time. We lived with them for a while in Barcelona and Madrid and we can assure they are respectfull and friendly. Relaxed ambient, suited for all easy-going people who wants to enjoy the heart of the city.
I met Alex and Lorena in a workshop of Superadobe construction last Summer.
We spent night and day together, food and 40 degrees heat!!
They worked hard and also had time and smiles to share afterwards.
They are very kind people. Very lovely and fun to spend time with. And heartopen.
We were sharing facilities and they respect other people space and time. Also help alot and are very flexible and tolerant. They were working in very hard conditions,and never saw any complain. Actually things were fluent.
I will recomend their company to all!! and I wish I could live with them;),It is true that Alex cooked with passion a great Paellla!
