Hola a todos. Tuve una muy buena estancia durante dos meses en lo de Fran. Ella es muy acogedora y su casa está muy linda, limpia y ordenada. El lugar donde vive es bellísimo. Está bien ubicado respecto de las cosas que hay para hacer en Barcelona si estás dispuesto a tomar el metro. Es un lugar tranquilo y con muchos bares a la noche para salir. Fran está atenta a las necesidades de los huéspedes y te abre su casa y está dispuesta a compartir una parte de su vida contigo. La habitación es pequeña pero no le faltan comodidades. Placard, cama espaciosa y cómoda y mesa escritorio.
Fran's apartment is lovely. She is a welcoming and relaxed hostess. Gracia is a really good area to stay in Barcelona, easy to manage, atmospheric and authentic.
The room is small, with a large single bed... so maybe best for only one person.
Very excellent neighborhood near many shops, wine bars, neighborhood squares, and independent shops. This isn't as close to the touristy neighborhoods, but the easy metro system is near by and will get you to everything you want to see in the city I'm 10 minutes. However I enjoyed this neighborhood the most if you want to feel like a local.
Francesca is a very nice girl who will chat if you want to chat, or leave you to your days business, whichever you prefer. She keeps a very clean tidy home, and although the bedroom is small, it is the perfect cozy size for a traveler.
Fran is very good host, everything was nice. Appartment is comfortable and location is good too, it is near the Placa Catalunya. Fran recommended me interesting places, museums and good food places.
Thank you, Fran!
Fran is the most genuinely kind host you could ever ask for. I was extremely blessed to stay here on my first ever Airbnb experience. The apartment is super cute, extremely clean and has everything you need. The bed is comfortable, the wardrobe is big and the water pressure is nice and strong. The location is perfect, I LOVE GRACIA and so will you. There are so many squares lined with cafe's, supermarkets, fruit & veg stores and friendly people. I walked all over town from here to La Rambla, Barcelonette, El Gothic Quarter etc multiple times but it's super close to 3 metro lines, Fontana/Diagonal/Joanic, taxi's are plentiful and there are a lot of bus stops nearby. Fran helped me ease into my new life of travelling and was able to give me a lot of advice about Barcelona and Spain. Fran is respectful, hilarious and has a big heart. I highly recommend staying with Fran. Thank you so much Francesa. I will miss you on my travels x
I stayed at Francesca's for four nights and it was perfect for me. The room is just big enough and has everything you need...light on the bedside table, a shelf, closet and a writing desk/table. And the location is (email hidden) eminently walkable and friendly Gracia. Francesca is a gracious host although I was out most of the time visiting with my daughter who lives nearby.
My stay was more than perfect. Fran is a great girl. Muy maja ;)
The house is clean, cozy, comfortable and she made me feel really free. The location is great, is not in the middle of the touristic crowded place, instead, it is in the best neighborhood of Barcelona, where you can live and enjoy the local bars and people. As well as you can be on the main places of the city by metro or walking if you like. I hardly recommend ;)
Fran's place is awesomely situated in the heart of Gracia, where there's lots of cafés, bars, restaurants and everything that you need, with a nice chill & relaxed neighborhood feel, full of pedestrian streets and squares to hang out - the perfect place to stay in Barcelona outside of the tourist zone, but also close to the metro station to be able to go anywhere rapidly. Fran herself is super nice, opened & easy-going - the apartment and the room is small but she will let you use her apartment however you like, like real roommate conditions. Very recommended if you're on a budget and if you'd like a taste of everyday life in Barcelona!
I was lucky to stay at Francesca's flat for a long period of time. Francesca is a respectful and easygoing person that will let you live and feel like you're at home! She is also the type of person with whom you can have a lot of fun and talk.
The flat is really clean, and you have everything that you need. The neighbourhood has a good atmosphere and offers a good selection of restaurants, bars and terraces. Perfect for someone who is looking for a good nightlife!
There was no better way to start a year long trip to Barcelona than staying at Francesca's flat! Thank you!
We spent a fabulous week at Fran's place. Her flat is just gorgeous: very tidy and clean, modern, comfortable, with beautiful furniture, full of light, very good taste.
Fran herself is a very warm host, easygoing, open-minded and a really lovely person. Such a pleasure to meet you, we would have liked to spend more time together than the first evening. Thanks for the wodka-lemon and the very nice conversation, by the way :-)).
For a tall couple the bed in the guest room would have been too small, but we had no problems with that. And if you prefer to sleep in absolute silence you won't be happy in the area of Gracia, because at the time we stayed there, there was party all night. On the other hand this is the thing you have to cope with when going to a city like Barcelona - and this was music and chatter and not traffic noise. And if you can't sleep you can still go down, have a copa at the beautiful Placa del Sol and listen to the guitar music playing. Anyway, I loved the neighbourhood of Gracia with all the bars and cafés and Yoga studios and organic food and individual designer fashion stores, far from the crowded Ramblas and though close enough to take a walk to the city centre and see the important sights. And my boyfriend really liked the shawarma;-) The apartment is in between two metro stations (Fontana/Joanic), and therefore well connected. All in all, very recommendable indeed. Hope to see you again soon, dear Fran!
