Mine will not be different from most of the previous opinions - the flat and the host himself are just great! :)
Huge thanks to Ivan, especially that due to some airport strikes we arrived at the palce at 2 am (!!) - and still he was there to greet us, eagerly helped with the luggage up this awesome-tim-burton-style staircase, had fresh bread waiting for us, just fantastic. A 5***** welcome, thank you Ivan!!
We stayed 4 nights in Ivan's flat. The apartment looks as good as on the pictures. Two nice bedrooms and the view from the balcony was really great. It was clean and tidy so we were fully content.
The stations Urgell (L1) and Universitat (L1,L2) are just a few minutes to walk and in there are a lot of nice restaurants cafes and bars in the neighborhood.
Eine wunderschöne Wohnung, sehr gut gelegen, sehr chic - und die Treppen zum Apartment waren ein guter Work-out.
Iván war sehr zuvorkommend und einladend, trotz unserer etwas verspäteten Ankunft. Auch hat er uns mit vielen Empfehlungen hinsichtlich Restaurants weitergeholfen und war stets schnell und unkompliziert zu erreichen. Jederzeit wieder!
We have just returned from a week at Ivàn's apartment and couldn't have asked for more. My partner and me were joined by my parents. As it was their first experience of AirBnB I was a little apprehensive but I needn't have been.
Our flight arrived in Barcelona at 11am; four hours before check-in time. I knew Ivàn had guests checking out that day and we were prepared to sit in a cafe for a few hours until the apartment was cleaned and ready. However Iván was more than happy for us to leave our luggage at the apartment so we could go explore. When we returned the apartment was spotless, with clean linen and plenty of towels.
The apartment is in a great location surrounded by amazing local restaurants, cafes and bars (both straight and gay), craft beer hangouts, ice cream store, supermarkets, independent food stores. Best of all you hear an abundance of Catalan and Spanish voices, which reminds you that you're not in the tourist traps.
Iván recommended a tapas bar which shouldn't be missed under any circumstances. Simply delicious.
Barcelona is easy to get around on foot, bicycle or metro. We covered miles of the city and couldn't have asked for a better location to be based. You really feel like you are living among locals. And the tourist sites are just a short walk or metro ride away - day or night.
The apartment has all mod cons, a great little kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, washing machine (and line on the balcony), wifi, HD TV, comfortable beds, a powerful shower etc.
Previous reviewers have mentioned the road and stairwell noise this didn't bother us. It's a European city and you get used to it. Besides its mainly a rush hour thing. If you make like the Catalan/Spanish community and go eat late and have a few glasses of wine, by the time you get back to the apartment the traffic has all but disappeared.
Thanks Iván for lending us your apartment and helping to make our stay in Barcelona so much fun.
Ivan was a fantastic host, he was incredibly welcoming and was very helpful on the day we left with letting us keep our bags in the flat so we didn't have to bring them with us when siteseeing.
The area around the flat was brilliant with lots of lovely cafes and restaurants - would recommend "Brunch and Cake" for incredible breakfasts and "Flamant" for lovely dinners at very reasonable prices. And it was a good location to see the rest of the city - either by walking or via public transport.
The flat was a great size for the 4 of us and had all the amenities that we needed. We were very happy with our stay.
We had a great stay in Barcelona. The location turned out to be perfect for touring with great restaurants nearby. Ivan made it easy to get settled, meeting us at the apartment and recommending nearby places. The apartment was charming and comfortable. We will definitely be coming back.
Ivan was a great host. He answered all of my emails swiftly, and ensured I had a comfortable stay. The apartment is great- in a good location with many restaurants and bars- note its not as close to Las Ramblas, but not a far walk maybe 20 min- although to be honest this area was better than Las Ramblas- you felt like one of the locals!! The apartment was clean, tidy and had great light. The bathroom is small- but normal for Europe. It did get a little noisy at night and you can slightly hear the neighbors- but not to worry, again this is a part of Barcelona city living. Would recommend.
We had a brilliant stay at Iváns flat. He was extremely helpful and even carried our suitcases up the stairs - and they were heavy!! The flat is exactly as described - very bright, spacious and beautifully decorated. We used the kitchen only once, but everything is there in case you are planning to cook yourselves. It has to be said that the bedroom with the balcony is quite noisy as it leads to a main street, but this is definitely to be expected in the centre of Barcelona. We had no issue with it. The flat is probably even nicer when the weather is better, there are two balconies, one with a table where you can have your breakfast... Unfortunately it was still too cold for this! All in all we loved the place and can definitely recommend it. Muchas gracias por todo Iván :)
We had a lovely vacation in Ivan's apartment. Ivan's flat is very lovely and kind. Everything is comfortable and pretty. The location is perfect, close to shopping, restaurants, museums, etc. Ivan was very welcoming and gave us a lot of great recommendations for restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. We would definitely recommend staying here and we would stay here again.
It was a great pleasure to meet Ivan and visit his apartement. Very well localised, clean and comfortable with good spirit and energy:-))) Ivan is very helpful from first meet. I'd like to come back:-)))))) incredible staircase:-))) I recomend this place - 5 stars:-))))
Even though did not get to meet in person, I can recommend Ivan as a guest. He and his friend stayed few days. They left the apartment clean and tidy. The communication was efficient.
Espero que todo te vaya bien desde que te hospedaste en mi piso en Paris! Ha sido un gran placer recibirte!
Yvan es un chico serio, agradable, y muy respetuoso de las cosas. Ha dejado el piso tal y como lo ha encontrado. Limpio, colocado y respetando los horarios que habiamos acordado. Lo recomiendo sin ninguna duda.
