We didn't have the pleasure of meeting Maria but her parents were very helpful and showed us around the apartment when we arrived. The place has plenty of space and all the amenities you will need for your stay. We were there 2 weeks in total and found it a good part of town to be located. It's well connected via bus and tram, both of which are literally 5 minutes away. You can even walk to the city centre easily (if you like walking) and there are plenty of sites to see along the way (and different routes to take). The mercat Fira de Bellcaire is near if you fancy a flea market trip and you can walk to Bogatell beach with ease. There's a bakery and general store just beside the building entrance, and also plenty of local restaurants, bars, and other local shops etc. just around the corner. You will also find a Carrefour, a shopping mall, and cineplex near by if you need that kind of thing. All in all is worked well for us.
My friend and I had a wonderful first time in Barcelona at this apartment. It's close to the Agbar Tower, and four metro stops from Las Ramblas. The neighborhood is quiet, and the balconies were very nice. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Maria, but her father was very helpful. We did have a problem with the lock getting into the building one night, but were able to get in when another resident came. Overall, I would highly recommend this place.
Maria is a great host, that's why I like airbnb, you get to meet real people, that you can talk to and share a glass of wine. Besides you can feel like at your friend's place, almost like home. Thanks!
We had a wonderful time at Maria's place. She and Victor are really nice and super uncomplicated hosts. Always friendly and welcoming you in the whole appartment. And the room and it's little balcony look even nicer than in the pictures. Can recommend it to everyone.
Maria was a wonderful host! Warm, caring and very easy going. Me and my boyfriend were picked up by her boyfriend from one of the metro stations, then given a nice little tour around the apartment, and provided two sets of keys. We were told to feel like at home and were given a shelf in the fridge and a huge set of clean towels. We stayed for five nights. The room we stayed in was spacious, spartanely decorated with an artistic feeling to it and with a nice firm bed. We had a balcony in our bedroom and there was another balcony in the living room where we ended up having our meals. The area in itself is close to La Familia Sangrada and has a very "local" feeling to it. There is a bike rent just around the corner from the apartment, and an excellent little convienience store just below. Really a nice place to stay at. Hope you enjoy you stay as much as we did!
very beautiful clean and comfortable apartment and room. Very helpful and polite hostess :)
