Horrible experience! Clearly the host is here to make money. Once you pay don't expect anything except an attitude. TV never worked. After 3 or 4 days someone from the family came to fix it; It worked for few hours with spanish TV. never worked after. Major strong sewage smell in the building. The septic tank is located in the entrance of the building therefore there is a constant strong smell of toilet throughout the building. Smell goes through the pipes, therefore you wake up and go to sleep with a strong smell... Internet is very poor in the apartment, often doesn't work. Work better in the staircase where the smell is the strongest! Advertising this apartment as "sunny" is a scam ! It is on the 2 floor of the tall building facing another building in a typical narrow street of Barcelonetta. The apartment could have been at least brighter if the windows would have be cleaned.
Unfortunately I have to leave a negative review about this apartment… it was burglarized while we were staying there. Police believe that someone had a key to the apartment and let themselves in while we were out, and they stole all our electronics. So my advice is to make sure that Sonia has changed the lock in the apartment before you consider staying there. It's a nice apartment in a great location near the beach, and Sonia was a very gracious host.
Our first experience of AirBNB and it was a good one. Our flight was delayed by over an hour so we arrived late on a Saturday night (10 pm) but we were met at the door, no problem.
The bedsit apartment was exactly as described, clean, modern and in good condition throughout. There were 4 of us, two adults, two children and it was just the right size, and well equipped. Plenty of storage if you needed if for clothes etc.
Location is perfect for the beach and seafront - perhaps a 2 minute walk. The area is perfect for a holiday - lively, plenty to do, lots of places to eat, and buy food and supplies. Recommend the Barceloneta Market, 5 minutes stroll away. Also Bombatas restaurant, not much further, but go early to beat the rush. The flat is just 20 minutes walking distance to Barcelona centre, perhaps 10 mins to La Barceloneta Metro.
I would recommend this apartment for small families or couples looking for a good base for a |Barcelona stay.
It is amazing apartment! Everything was great! I like it so much! Next time I will visit this apartment again! PERFECT!
Great apartment with lots of rooms and comfort in a nice area close to Bairro Alto. It is, however, owned by a big holiday company, which did not spend time to show us around or give us information.
The apartment is well situated in the middle of Lisbon, spacious and despite the lack of terrace offers a beautiful view over the rooftops of Lisbon. It is "airy" and in good restored condition and clean. The somewhat narrow bathroom does not interfere. We have heard no noise from other apartments and could relax well.
