Juan's flat and the entire experience was absolutely perfect in every way. We loved spending time out on one of two terraces (one even had a great view of Tibidabo!). Laura (who provided access to the flat) was very kind and helpful whenever we needed her. The location was exactly what we needed and close to lots of great restaurants and a grocery store. The building was secure and I felt very comfortable leaving all of my belongings there (something I'm usually slightly paranoid about).
Only thing to be aware of is the 6 flights of stairs to climb, but we considered it a blessing because we needed to work off all that amazing food! And you can't get those views on the first floor :)
Juan was such a wonderful host and his apartment was so lovely. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Barcelona! The terraces are so nice for enjoying views of the city on a sunny day or starry night. Gracia is also such a charming neighborhood with lots of great restaurants nearby. Juan was always so accommodating to our schedule and gave great recommendations for things to do in and around Barcelona, including a beautiful little beach that we were lucky enough to explore!
The Apartment of Juan is amazing. We had a wonderful time there and felt very welcome. The Apartment looks totally like the photos are showing. You have two really lovely terraces. Juan helped us a lot!
He was really nice and fast with his answers, that we could book his beautiful apartment to have nice holidays there. Juan gave us really good restaurant and coffee recommendations. Gracia is a really nice area.
Our stay was just perfect. Thanks!
host perfecto, casa muy linda, zona que más céntrica no se puede... mejor que así no podía pensarlo
Juan nous a très bien accuelli, déjà en amont, il m'a souvent demandé si j'avais des questions. Il nous a trouvé un bon plan pour garer notre voiture. Il est même venu nous accueillir à la station de métro car nous nous étions perdu.
Pendant notre séjour, il s'est inquiété de savoir si tout allait bien.
L'appartement est idéalement situé, à côté du marché couvert, à 2 pas de la cathédrale, du musée Picasso ...
Si nous avons l'occasion, nous y retournerons.
We stayed at Juan's flat in Barcelona for 5 nights and it was nothing short of an exceptional experience.
The location was fantastic, you are not far away from everything. A short walk to vibrant and popular La Rambla.
The flat was well decorated, and good living space for a studio flat. Also, equipped with a decent and modern niceties that makes holiday easier.
Juan as a host was very helpful, apart from his timely and comprehensive email that serves as a guide from getting your way around and to the flat, he also managed to provides an honest recommendations of different restaurants and bar in around the area - in terms of what to expect and all that.
My girlfriend and I were particularly impressed with his effort in making our life easier with a central remote control that control most of the appliances in the flat e.g. fan, lights - Getting to the switch to turn off/on the lights sometimes can be a daunting task esp when you've be asleep and suddenly woke up as a result of heat, it means you can switch on the fan without having to leave the comfort of the bed. I know it sounds petty but I cannot over emphasize how comfortable that makes us feel. After all every small things in life makes a huge difference.
Juan, thanks for the fresh fruits, the welcome spanish wine and water you put in the fridge before we even got there. Much appreciated if we ever visit Barcelona again, we would not think twice of booking your flat again. Hopefully, it will be available.
Thanks a million
Juan is really kind and helpful host. Before arriving he did contact me several times informing about everything we need to know before we arrive and that helped a lot. Than he met us at the station and show the neighbourhood. The apartment itself was clean and well equipped (including spare linen, towels, umbrellas and thing you need for cooking like oil salt and tea/coffee). The terrace was amazing, we spend most of the time there! Overall Juan is responsible and good host who understand what a tourist need for a comfortable stay in apartment.
Juan was a great host, he made us feel very welcome and showed us around the flat. We had fresh fruit and Cava on arrival which was a nice touch! The flat is small but has absolutely everything we needed for our stay. It was not a problem for partner or me but the flat is on the top floor (5th floor) so you will have plenty opportunity to work off all that food and wine you consume!
I would say that the location of this Flat is absolutely perfect. The Gotic and Born areas are my favourite with an abundance of bars, restaurants and interesting things to see. Was also a pleasant 15 min walk to the beach.
I cannot speak highly enough of the experience we had. Thanks!
We had a fantastic stay in Juan's apartment, the place is lovely, exactly like the pictures and in such a good location! Juan and Laura were so great, always available if we needed anything and very helpful. The flat is right next to an indoor food market which was really fun and you should definitely visit and we also found a cool cocktail bar round the corner called The Lime House. Barcelona was great to explore and Juan & Laura could not have been more helpful for us giving us tips of places to go. You've found a great place to stay for your trip!
Juan is a great host, we got a lovely warm welcome when we arrived at his place. He even provided us with a welcome champagne and fruits in the fridge. The flat is within a few minutes walking distance from the beach, so we headed there every morning. Juan provided us with a list of recommended restaurants in the neighborhood, we tried the Woki Wok right on the playa, their food and sangria is great at a really reasonable price. The is a market hall right next to the flat, it was fun doing the morning shopping there, especially buying local chees and ham.
The flat itself, - despite of the relatively small size -, has a well-designed floor plan, thus making it the right place for 2 persons. The terrace above the flat is a great experience, we enjoyed drinking wine, eating cheese and baguette there. The house is a traditional Barceloneta one, with narrow staircase, travelling with two smaller luggages would be better idea than with a single big one as we did, but Juan helped with it as well.
Juan's initial email on how to get there was very useful, he also looked up the best train to get back to the airport on time.
All in all, we had perfect time at his place, we are really thankful for Juan's support and highly recommend the place!
Unfortunately I havn't the chance to meet in person Juan for a series of unfortunate circumstance. In any case, we didn't have problems and everything is going well. The house was left and used perfectly! Recommended guest
Juan and his aunts were very nice and friendly guests. It was a pleasure to host them, we could easily communicate and exchange. Juan was very respectful of the apartment and left it tidy and without any problem. We would be happy to have them again in Marseille !!
It was really nice to have Juan at Shantidevi ashram ,love to have him
Juan is a really nice guy, lots of laugh, and he helped me a lot.
I'm real happy about him, he was my first guest.
Juan stayed with us several day. He is a very nice person who took time to know and discuss with us.
He is also a host and understand completely our spirit. We loved that in him.
We hope to see him again or stay with him in Barcelona.
Juan Pablo stayed with us when he visited Miraflores in Lima-Peru. He is a nice person, friendly, with good communication, and respectful. I would recommend him as a guest in your home-stay and he is welcome to stay in the studio or any of my other properties whenever he is back in Lima!
Ragazzi simpatici e sempre sorridenti, spero ritornino in estate per godere del sole siciliano.
Juan is a perfect guest, friendly and very nice. I have met once but my good impression has been confirmed. I hope that their stay has been pleasant.
Juan was very friendly, polite and communicated well his plans, so he was just perfect guest! The apartment was also left absolutely spotless. I fully recommend Juan to any host! :)
Juan is an interesting & happy person. Very knowledgeable and always willing to share his wisdom. He is widely traveled & stayed in my house for 3 weeks. He kept his room very clean & took care of the house like his own. A great guest & a very good friend.
Conocí a Juan Pablo en un curso de meditación, así que eso ya fue un buen comienzo!! :D
Es muy amable, tranquilo, creativo y divertido, ama viajar y sus historias son super interesantes! además es un excelente anfitrión, siempre atento.
Recomiendo ampliamente a Juan Pablo no solo por ser mi amigo, sino por sus cualidades, que hacen de el una gran persona :)
