Great stay! This is such a cute flat, it is centrally located and walking distance from anything you could need. Mike was there upon arrival to help us with whatever we needed, he was so accommodating, going beyond what we expected. Definitely recommended if you are visiting Barcelona, these hosts have everything you could need.
We spent a wonderful holiday in Mike's apartment.
Everything was exactly like the pictures and even more brighter.
The stairs were not a big problem and the pulley was very helpful. Is the perfect location for young travelers, couples and lovers of vintage things.
Communication with the host have been easy and pleasant although we did not know the language very well.
In my next trip to Barcelona definitely will choose to stay in his apartment!
Absolutely LOVED Steve & Mike's apartment. The location is excellent, right in the heart of Barcelona, and within walking distance from all the main attractions as well as plenty of bars and eateries, but far enough that it's not too overly noisy (you can still hear the street though).
Mike was meant to meet us on check in but was very busy that day, and instead sent us the code to get into the door and get the keys. The apartment feels safe, and is absolutely adorable with it's quirky decor. It is also very well equipped, and we particularly appreciated the laundry facilities. There's no bin though so make sure you have some plastic bags handy!
Unfortunately, the window in the living room had been broken by a previous renter, which made the apartment a bit cold and noisy at night. Mike apologised and told us it was being fixed the following week. There was no toilet paper left in the apartment, but Mike quickly rectified this, leaving some at the door for us. We finally had the pleasure of meeting Mike as we were on our way out on the second night. He was polite (and quite nice to look at LOL) and even gave us suggestions on where to go and eat and places to party afterwards.
All in all, a fantastic stay. The apartment could benefit from a bin or two, and maybe some extra blankets. Other than that, we had an excellent stay, and would happily stay again!
First of all, it was really difficult to get in touch with Mike. Even until 2 days before the trip, it was impossible to reach him. Even after finally reaching him and agreeing on a meeting time, he did not come on time and we were stranded on the street waiting.
The apartment building itself was pretty nice; it is in a quiet neighborhood in Barcelona with a very accessible train stop. The apartment unit itself is on the top floor, as it is mentioned as a penthouse, and the walk up isn't too bad.
The apartment was clean but extremely cold (the trip was in the winter) with no heating what so ever. There were no towels so showering was basically impossible, especially with how cold the apartment was. I contacted Mike via airbnb so we could get some more towels but he did not answer me at all.
Checking out was also sort of a pain because he did not come meet us on time again. I waited for half an hour but since he didn't show up, I just left the keys under the doormat with the door locked. This was one of my first airbnb experiences and the price I paid for this apartment was not even that much cheaper to a hotel. I don't think I would be returning to this apartment again.
Appart très sympa, hôte très réactif !
it is lovely place near to old city. And Angle is friendly.

L'hôte doit nous accueillir mais il n'est pas là. Il nous donne par sms les indications pour accéder à un appartement qui n'est pas celui que nous avions réservé. Nous sommes obligés de passer la première nuit dans cet appartement donnant sur la rue, très bruyant, non chauffé, et où il n'y a que 3 serviettes de toilette alors que nous sommes 4. L'hôte nous propose de nous rembourser cette première nuit. Cela a été fait.
Le lendemain, nous pouvons nous installer dans le bon appartement, après le passage de la femme de ménage.
Il n'est pas chauffé et nous n'obtiendrons jamais les couvertures demandées. Les radiateurs d'appoint sont inutilisables la nuit (l'un est trop bruyant, l'autre dégage une lumière trop vive). La couette de la chambre des parents est une couette taille enfant. nous dormirons 7 nuits avec nos pulls et/ou manteaux sur le dos.
Le wifi ne marche pas. Malgré ce que disent nos hôtes. Et ce, dans les trois appartements qu'il louent, au même étage. Nous avons dépensé près de 100 euros pour avoir dû nous connecter via notre serveur français.
Il n'y a pas de rideaux dans les chambres (nous utiliserons un rideau de douche dans l'une, et un drap dans l'autre)
Il n'est pas "sunny" (comme l'annonce le disait avant que le mot soit retiré) car il est exposé plein nord.
Il est plus petit que prévu.
La télévision ne marche pas. Par chance, nous pouvons récupérer un câble dans le premier appartement, et en connecter un autre, par hasard, sur le toit...
L'équipement de la cuisine est très pauvre. Peu d'assiettes, peu de couverts. Pas de micro-onde, pas de bouilloire, pas de cafetière, rien pour faire le thé, deux petites casseroles. Et rien pour le premier petit-déjeuner, comme promis dans l'annonce.
Steve and Mike gèrent 15 appartements, nous ont-ils dit. Ce ne sont pas des particuliers, il faut le savoir.
Dès l'arrivée dans l'appartement (qui n'était pas le bon) nous avons contacté l'assistance d'Airbnb. L'équipe a été à l'écoute et nous a beaucoup aidé et soutenu. Nous avons demandé un remboursement de 30%, qui a été validé.
A part ça, quand nous avons croisé nos hôtes, ils ont toujours été charmants, souriants et pleins de promesses.
It was a pleasure to host Steve and Mike on their Tokyo trip! They were polite, communicative and they left the apartment in great order! I want to wish them the best in their future journeys! Journey on! Brian
Esteve is been a perfect host, highly communicative, friendly and flexible!
Unfortunately, Esteve was horribly inconsiderate of the property, destroying decorative pillows, not using coasters on wood- destroying tabletops and also getting water all over the hardwood floor which left marks. I found broken glass from several missing wine glasses in the dishwasher and all of my personal alcohol (which was stored in the very back of a cuboard out of reach and sight) was gone. There was dark beer (or something else) all over the chairs, shower curtain, bed skirt/comforter, and elsewhere. There was trash leaked all over the floor and all down the carpet hallway of the unit, and male body fluid from sex on the decorative throw pillows in the living room and on the living room futon...GROSS!! I would never rent to Esteve again and I advise you to use caution and impose a hefty security deposit.
