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:-))))
Ivan took care of everything. Very friendly, very good service. There was not only a place to stay, but also a very warm welcome and very useful things like water, coffee, olive oil etc. I highly recommend the place and Ivan as a host!
Ivan made us very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. He helped carry the bags up the stairs when we arrived and was a font of information regarding local restaurants and places to see. Because my wife and I have been travelling for about nine months, we were delighted to have the facilities to cook fresh produce, like fish and prawns, from the big market along La Rambla (only 15 minutes away).
Ivan's apartment can be a little noisy at night but it's not a huge issue and the position more than makes up for it because it's not in the tourist hotspot but within walking distance of the good shops and the major attractions. WIFI was excellent, and a very good washing machine and clothesline are available on the back balcony, outside the lounge room doors. The apartment is well stocked so people staying for a week or more don't need to buy the basics. It needs to be mentioned that those with some physical impairment should know that there are 53 steps to negotiate to Ivan's front door. For us, it was some much-needed exercise for the day.
All in all, it was a delight to have Ivan as our landlord for two weeks. He twice provided printouts of documents we needed to sign and get back to Australia. And, he was very prompt in returning emails.

The flat was as posted. Nice size two bedroom in a nice area. Very clean tidy. Ivan was also super helpful in guiding us to the flat and even came to assist us in finding the right bus stop to get back to the airport. Nice guy.
The neighbour hood was safe and fairly quiet as I have heard other locations in Barcelona can get quiet loud at night.
We took the €5 bus from the airport and it drops you off a few blocks away. Ivan guided us in.
It is a fourth floor all steps flat. After 9 miles of walking around all day, you have to tackle the steps. No issues for us but could be challenging for some. The bathroom is also small, think cruise ship size. Again no issue for my wife and I, but if you are traveling with other couples, it could be tight.
Would highly recommend this space.
I have to say- thanks for all Ivan.
We arrived very late in the evening and we had a warm welcome.
Ivan shows us around and say welcome with bread and milk for the next morning.
Everything was really clean, you have everything in the apt and the view from the bedroom is great!
Thanks a lot and see you next time!
We recently stayed at the property for 3 nights. Ivan was very prompt in his communication prior to our arrival and gave me useful info re. travel options from the airport to the flat. He was welcoming on arrival and made sure we can contact him should we need hell during our stay.
The property had some great positives as well as some negatives. Firstly, it is on the 5th floor and there is no lift which was not a problem for us, but could be an issue for other people. The flat is in a building with a front lockable door and felt safe. The location is amazing, an easy 10 min walk into the city centre and the street the flat is located on was such a joy to walk explore- full of lovely little cafes, bars, restaurants, art galleries. There is a great choice of little supermarkets and bakeries nearby too.
Now the negatives- although the flat is well appointed and decorated very tastefully, we really struggled with the noise in the master bedroom. As it happens to face onto the main street, which is quite busy with traffic both day and night and only single glazed, it was incredibly noisy and we struggled to get a good night's sleep. Maybe consider taking ear plugs.
The second bedroom was smaller snd much quieter at night, but quite noisy first thing in the morning as it faces the internal stairwell of the building and you could clearly hear people walking up and down the stairs and closing doors.
Maybe it's comes with the age of the building, which Ivan confirmed was built in 1910, but the internal walls are incredibly thin and we could hear the neighbours talk late at night or their alarm clock going off in the morning.
The apartment is well equipped, the kitchen provided sufficient amount of crockery, cutlery and has a dish washer. Ivan has left a generous amount of breakfast supplies and other cooking ingredients too, however we ate out every day and did not cook at the flat. I would have liked to have a hair dryer and some spare pillows provided. The bathroom was beautifully decorated but on the small side and insufficient shelf space and no hooks for towels.
Worth mentioning that the flat is not air conditioned. There is a little balcony coming out of the living room and the wifi worked very well.
Overall we loved the location and found the apartment a bit of a hit and miss. Good for short stay, would have struggled to stay there for longer due to the noise. Nice host!
hi Milena, thank you so much for your review !!!
just to specify the apartment is located in a 3rd and a half floor.
hope to see you soon.
A really funky flat and lovely host Ivan. Some cool bars and restaurants nearby where more locals than tourists (rare find in Barca!). Walking distance to two main train stations if you plan to venture out of town.
Nous avons passé 4 jours et trois nuits en famille (avec notre petite fille en bas âge). Hôte très sympathique , qui a répondu à toutes nos (website hidden) est de très bon conseil!! L'appartement correspond aux photos. Le quartier est proche de tout!!Pensez à prévoir le stationnement dans le budget!!!
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.
