Staying with Lorena and Desy was a great experience for my wife & I especially for our first trip to Barcelona. You're right in the middle of the action and easy access to public transportation. I would bring earplugs as some nights can be very loud on the weekends and they do street cleaning in the evening. If you're a light sleeper, I would recommend bringing a pair. It was great to wake up each morning, take a look out of the balcony, and have a quick bite of breakfast before we started our day. Lorena and Desy worked during our stay but were very helpful each time they were present. They suggested places to see and places to eat (all of which were fantastic). Hugo the cat was quiet, yet friendly though sometimes, if you walk to the bathroom at night he may be chillin in the hallway so walk with caution! I absolutely loved that there was pull-up bar in the hallway! Being as health conscious as I am, I nearly used it everyday on top of all the sight seeing we did!
It felt like we were true citizens of Barcelona! We did not pack a beach blanket but Lorena responded quickly when we asked for one. I would highly recommend this to any of my friends and family; this was our last big trip before my wife gets too far into her pregnancy to travel but we would not hesitate to come back and stay here when we're with our son in the future! Thank you for your warm hospitality!
I had a lovely stay! Lorena and Desy are great hosts and are really good and experienced as hosts. The room is just as described and pictured and is in a great location in the Gothic. It's easy to get to from the airport, is close to a metro stop and tons of sites and restaurants and bars. I found the room to be very quiet and comfortable with good wifi, a great kitchen, and a very comfortable bed. Desy and Lorena are very nice to live with and invited me to join them for dinner and a flamenco concert. This was my first airbnb experience and first time in BCN and I couldn't ask for anything more!
Staying with Desy and Lorena was fantastic, they are definetly superhosts. Apartment's location is great and in the heart of Barcelona centre. When I visit Barcelona again, i Will book with them again :)
If you want a great hostess and a great location, look no further. Lorena and Desy were extremely accommodating during my visit to Barcelona. She made sure that I had a comfortable stay. She even met up with me at the bus stop after my flight to ensure I get to the apartment safely. From providing insider tips to mapping out the metro line, they did everything to make my visit unforgettable.
As for the location, you are literally a 2 min walk away from the action. Las Ramblas, tapas bars, metro line, market, etc. are conveniently located, so you won't miss out.
The room was small and cozy, but it can get loud at night time, but that's what you get for being in the middle of the action. I highly recommend this listing!
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!
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!
