Olga's apartment is in the heart of the El Born district of Barcelona. It's perfect if you want to get out and about and explore! For 2 of us it was enough space, there is a double bedroom which leads onto a small balcony - perfect for an evening glass of wine and some people watching (there is a tapas bar on the street below which is always busy and so it can be noisy at times). The 2 other bedrooms are smaller but were perfect for storing some of our things like luggage, wet towels and swim shorts from the beach.
The photos on the site are accurate, although the apartment is a little worn in places (when you arrive, be prepared to carry your stuff up a few flights of stairs!). Everything is fairly compact, we mainly used the apartment as a base and spent most of our time out in the city, so it was perfect.
Olga was a great host, the only problem we had was with the water heater one morning and she came down to take a look that day. There was a slight language barrier in that we didn't speak very good Spanish, and Olga has limited English so worth bearing in mind ahead of your trip - the apartment has WiFi so we used the airbnb site to communicate during our stay.
Overall we had a great holiday and a great stay in Olga's place. It's in a fantastic location with access to Barcelona's best sights, bars and restaurants. If you're looking for somewhere in the heart of Barcelona then we can definitely recommend Olga's apartment.
I just returned home after 10 days spend in Barcelona, based at Olga's apartment. It is a superb location from which you can easily explore the fabulous treasures of the el Born neighbourhood, with also the Ramblas in easy walking distance ( about 15 min) as well as the beach (15 min as well). The apartment is excellent for feeling home away from home, with a lot of space and a real homey feeling to it. Sipping your wine on your own balcony is such a bonus! The pictures on the site are accurate; a central and quite spacious sort of lounge area/living room, with an open kitchen to the side; 1 double bedroom with enough space, 1 good sized single bedroom and another small 1 person bedroom in the back. All the bedrooms have more than enough storage space for your cloths/belongings with also simple but aesthetically nice places for hanging cloths (yes, I did bring more than enough of them, it's a party city isn't it?). Bathroom is next to living room and adequately sized. Tastefully decorated, excellent wifi. It is a bit worn perhaps (the kitchen mainly, but accommodating with all you need; the mattresses on the single beds are not the very best perhaps, certainly not the worst either though; the shower worked perfectly, no problems with water pressure, always hot water, did become a bit wet on the floor, but that might have been just us ;-) but nothing too disturbing. So if you fancy a super modern clean cut place, this won't be it. If you however can deal with minor imperfections and appreciate location location location, you won't be disappointed! Many curvy little streets and squares hide lots of great little shops and excellent places to eat.
Dealing with Olga was very pleasant and easy, being met on arrival and departure in person. She was always quick to respond to any queries I send her and accommodating my last minute addition of an extra travel friend for 3 of the 10 nights, which made my holiday!
Very nice, clean apartment. Very good location as well
We had a wonderful stay in Olga's apartment. The apartment was in a fantastic location with lovely views out of the big front windows. Noise does filter up to the front bedrooms at night, but I think that just goes with being close to so much fantastic nightlife.
The rooms are a decent size, the bathroom is small but big enough and we had no problem with the water pressure in the shower.
The apartment was clean and well-equipped. The kitchen has everything you would want in terms of pots and pans, utensils, etc but if you are planning on cooking some meals just be aware that there aren't any things like oil, salt, or spices available for you to use.
Thanks to Olga for hosting us!
Sonntag bis Donnerstag waren wir in der kleinen Wohnung in Innenstadt von Barcelona. Die sehr zentrale Lage macht sie zu einem idealen Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Stadt. Auch ist sie sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die Austattung ist ausreichend, was uns aber nichts machte, da die Stadt alles für eine gute Versorgung in nächster Nähe zur Verfügung stellte. Die besonderen Sehenswürdigkeiten haben wir dann alle zu Fuß erreichen können. Zur Strand braucht man auch nur 20 Minuten. Die Wohnung ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen, wenn man keine zu hohen Ansprüche stellt.
We had a pleasant time and the apartment was clean and nice and located in a very nice area. We can absolutly recomend it!
Olga me gusta tu casa!
Muchas gracias y saludos a Ali y Hassan.

O apartamento é bonitinho, mas deixou muito a desejar. Banheiro sem conforto, local muito barulhento e o prédio muito abandonado e mal conservado. Impossível dormir de tanto barulho!
A única coisa boa é a localização.
The apartment is situated as described right at the edge of the beautiful city-center (best situation for partying).
As I have been staying quite often in Spain, I know that you can't expect too much comfort.
The buildings entrance is very old and lacks restoration - the photos here on airBnB are misleading - the whole apartment is less fancy and definitely needs some cleaning and painting.
Don't get me wrong: If you want a good city-adventure with your three student friends, this is a very good and well priced option. I just think, that the photos are misleading and the overall quality of this flat has to be described as is.
Also the water-pressure in the show was very low (and hot water was more or less optional).
Good location and well equipped apartment. A great place to stay if you want to get to know the Born Area and the surroundings, and if you don´t mind a few minutes walk you can go through an amazing park and get to the beach be feet.
The price is very reasonable considering the location and the size. There is also a little balcony which is nice for having a glass of wine and watch people go by... Water pressure in the shower was a tiny bit low, but not a big issue at all. Internet was working perfect so all in all its a highly recommendable place. We actually wanted to stay for a longer time than planned, but unfortunately it was booked for the preceding days... The apartment is as it appears in the photos and it was nice and clean when we arrived. :-)
