Manager of several apartment in Barcelona with an experience more then 5 years in area of short term apartment rental.
The apartement was very nice, clean and in a good position. Dionisio is so friendly and cool, we spend a great time! highly recommended (:
This was the first time using Airbnb. The process and experience of renting was fine and quite easy to use although one has to pay Airbnb the full amount up front which is a bit much when booking early. Dion as a host was friendly, speaks good english, communicative, professional and reliable. He is easy to deal with and on that front, we would use him again. The apartment however was not quite what we were expecting – perhaps the photos and description didn't quite set our expectations well. The property is large so on that matter, great. It's a very dated property both outside and inside. Some time time ago could have been quite grand.There was plenty of hot water and decent shower pressure. It had a strange internal courtyard terrace which was totally full of hanging laundry. There were a bunch of students staying in the apartment the night before so it required a lot of cleaning. It was actually cleaned as we saw the person doing it but it didn’t actually feel that clean. Things like duvets, sheets, towels are old/worn and didn’t smell particularly fresh and there was a fairly stale smell generally in the apartment and building. The beds are more like lightweight camp beds and mattresses rather than proper beds/bedsteads. A word of warning, the main bedroom and other front bedroom are both very noisy from a traffic perspective as they are right on the main road and only on the first floor. I had ear plugs and still heard the traffic so didn't sleep well at all. It's not an apartment we’d use again and perhaps more suitable to students or groups of friends partying in Barcelona rather than professionals looking for a good, comfortable and quiet place during a very hard week of work. This is intended to be a fair reflection of the apartment and to help prospective renters so I hope this is useful.
The host was easy to communicate and deal with, no problems. His apartment was clean and spacious, just a little cold at night. But an included fanoven was good to have there. The apartment has the best location just a few meters from lower La Rambla street. Little noisy at night. Lots of life with small shops, cafés and restaurants in the neighborhood. Both neighborhood and the apartment felt very safe at all times. Good value for the price!
We loved the location and cosy stylish Sunny Apartment Gotico in Ramblas Area. We had a woderful long weekend in Barcelona... Dionisio was ever so helpful and welcoming...Thank you.
This is the perfect apartment for a great location in Barcelona. It's big and clean as the pictures. Near Las Ramblas, the metro, the market. We recommend Dionisio apartment and I would return if I were to visit barcelona again.
Thank You Dionisio ;)
If you're looking for a great location, then this is the perfect apartment. It's very central and ideal to stroll home to after drinks in the Raval. The only down side is that the showers aren't great, but they're manageable. The apartment was clean and tidy with two nice living areas to sit and chat. Also, the beds are seriously comfy! Dion was really helpful and was available to call whenever I had a question. I would definitely recommend this to groups looking to stay in Barcelona.
Very nice situation nel gotico, the apartment was big, sunny(as his denomination) and Dionisio is very friendly and clear, accurate for the information.
Logement spacieux, très agréable !
Internet accessible très facilement, c'est agréable !
Dionisio est vraiment sympa, très serviable, c'est très agréable !
We had a wonderful stay at Dionisio's apartment, The flat is perfect for big groups for a short stay in the city and has an ideal location (near las ramblas, between plaza catalunya and the metro Liceu, near a carrefour market).
Dionisio was flexible about the check-in and check-out schedule.
The apartment was functional and heating systems are available in almost every room.
I also recommend this apartment because it has the best value for money in the neighborhood.
Roomy and well-located apartment for big groups! The eight of us stayed at Dionisio's flat between 27 January and 1 February (five nights). When we arrived the apartment had been freshly cleaned, ready for our stay, and our friendly host waiting for us to explain some ground rules. Overall, the flat is very spacious, especially the kitchen and the living room, so we had no problems cooking and eating for our rather big group of eight. The bedrooms were comfortable and two bathrooms were definitely enough for our needs. We especially appreciated the free wifi connection available.
The location close to the Urgell metro station meant it was relatively quick and simple for us to reach the far corners of the city. While the immediate neighbourhood is quiet and residential with good amenities close by (several supermarkets and cafés within a stone's throw from the apartment), the major tourist sites such as Passeig de Gracia and Ciutat Vella are only a nice walk away.
In conclusion, we'd recommend Dionisio's apartment and would be happy to stay there again next time we are in Barcelona.
Dionisio is the best host in Barcelona! The apartment we rent in the city center was really nice and clean, Dionisio was always there for us during our stay. We really enjoyed our vacations, thumb up! ;-)
Dionisio is my old school friend. He is very friendy and knows how to take good care of the guests. Dring my next trip to Barcelona I would definetely trust him with my accomodation arrangements ib Barca! ;) hope to see you soon
