Прекрасная квартира в Готическом районе Барселоны - в двух минутах ходьбы от площади Каталуния и Лас Рамблас. Пляж Барселонета всего в 15 минух.

Pros - Excellent location. The flat is a right next to Santa Maria del Mar; it is a 10 minute walk from Barceloneta beach and 10 minutes from Las Ramblas. There are lots of lovely places to eat and drink.
The flat was clean and kitchen and wifi worked fine. Communication with Julia is good; she always replied promptly to messages and we were greeted at the door by Julia's friend.
Cons - no external windows but air conditioner works well. Broken shower bracket made it difficult to shower. Shower isn't massive but is a decent size.
Beds are two camp beds and cushions were provided rather than pillows.
But all in all, it is a cheap listing, comfortable and very very central. Good if you are just going to use it to sleep.
Julia's friend was kind he gave us a good description of how to get to the apartment from the airport.
the apartment was very very small the bathroom is a disaster, the towels were not enough, the only good thing about the apartment is the location.
so i will give Julia only one star for the location.
Todo espectacular, Barcelona es una gran ciudad, lo que puedo decir del departamento es que la ubicación no puede ser mejor, apenas salís a la calle encontraras todo lo necesario para pasar un buen momento, restaurantes, bares, super, alquiler de bicis, etc... La única contra que le encontramos es la ventilación ya que no tiene ventana hacia el exterior lo cual también se transforma en una ventaja porque es muy silencioso. Lo recomiendo a toda la comunidad. Un 8 en relación precio calidad.
Devo dire che è stata un esperienza negativa rispetto ad altre volte in altri alloggi di cui mi ero trovata molto meglio..sia riguardo lo spazio che al funzionamento...ciao
Unfortunately we didn´t meet Julia but a friend of her gave us the keys the the house and the appartement. He was very friendly - although he only speaks spanish - and waited for us since our flight was late.
The appartement is clean and has everything for a short trip to Barcelona. Julia left some towels for our stay. Sadly the bathroom is very small. The shower has only a space about 60 *60 cm. And one of the beds squeaked when you change your position in bed. But at the end everything was fine for a weekend trip. Comparing to other price/performance-ratio for apartements in Barcelona the apartement is worth its price.
We did not meet Julia but her representative greeted us and gave us keys and advised the main entrance door lock could be tricky. We were shocked by the tiny size of the studio and the many steps required to climb. I expected a street window but there was only an opening to the atrium. The bed was very low and comprised of two very thin singles pushed together with only one mattress protector and a double sheet. There were two very small pillows provided. The covers provided were two single duvet covers. There was a locker on the right side, higher than the bed which my wife unfortunately struck and had a serious injury to the side of her face. The shower had little space and a broken holder for the shower head which made it so difficult to shower properly.
The wifi and air-conditioning worked fine.
Even if your expectations were very poor you would have been very disappointed with this letting. The entrance lock gave us so much trouble that we were sometimes 20 minutes trying to get access.
Жилье ровно как в описании: на 2 этаже, лестница непростая, если спускаться с чемоданом (при встрече муж Юлии поднял 2 наши тяжелых чемодана, за что ему огромное спасибо!)
удивлением для нас стала очень маленькая душевая, совмещенная с туалетом. так как при использовании душа защитная занавеска оказалась короче, чем нужно, на полу в ванной/туалете после душа очень мокро, купили тряпку, чтобы вытирать)) еще один момент был неожиданным: общая дверь в подъезд на старом замке, так что не удивляйтесь, если минуту-две с непривычки будете искать "нужное положение" для ключа, чтобы открыть дверь. я заметила, что многие соседи не напрягаются, а просто не закрывают дверь, ибо открывать реально сложно! на 3 день проживания я наловчилась и стала открывать замок за 10- 15 секунд)
местоположение прекрасно! соседняя улица Princessa полна разных магазинчиков, ресторанов и кондитерских, между carrer del Atgenteria и Princessa находится музей Пикассо. поблизости с квартирой есть прекрасный магазин Veritas (на via Laeitana), где можно купить все необходимое и высокого качества. недалеко: Hofmann с его знаменитыми круассанами с маскарпоне. если перейти дорогу к Jaume 1 - вокруг вас куча кафешек и магазинчиков, а до Rambla - 15 минут через маленькие оживленные улицы. До пляжа Сен Себастьян и Барселонеты -минут 25 пешком (причем можно идти по via laeitana, а можно- по мелким улицам)
The host was pretty responsive and flexible and helped us get situated and the place was clean. The location is great, right in the middle of the El Born area. I understand it's a studio, but the bathroom/shower was really small and just not something we were used to. Otherwise, things were great.
Would not recommended.
First off all, we had no communication. Our messages, emails and text were ignored. It took a call the day before the booking to get confirmation that we would be met at the requested check in time.
We were met by a friend who was helpful (but no English).
The apartment itself is a lot smaller than it looks. The pictures are also photoshopped to make it look newer, nicer and brighter than it is in real life.
The apartment has a bad damp smell, the de humidifier/air con unit helps but it is very noisy.
We were prepared for a small shower (as per description) but this was ridiculous. It is too small to stand in and draw the curtain so you have to leave it open. There was no shower mat provided- only two small old towels. The shower head has also broken off the wall so that you have to hold it. The bathroom itself isn't big enough to open the door. It hits the sink and when you sit on the toilet your knees touch the wall.
Kitchen is good- has everything.
Beds are two single camp beds pushed together. Not uncomfortable but not great for a couple.
We were provided with two sets of keys. It turns out that only one set works. Thankfully we discovered this early on and were able to ask the shop next door to let us into the front door. (They have a store cupboard in the same block).
Cannot fault location. Great area of town close to shops and metro. I guess the only positive is that this is cheaper than most hotels but it isn't a pleasurable experience.
We met Julia's friend who was a very kind person (helped us with the bags).
The appartment is ok even if a little bit too hot cause of the bad clim, the bathroom is a little bit too small.
Whatever, we were in the city, in a great street with a supermarket, a place with restaurants to drink a coffee & cie.
15min to walk from the beach, 15min to walk from las ramblas + plaça real, what else ?
Thanks a lot. it was perfect !
Julia was a wonderful guest, very friendly polite and charming. We had some good chats, pity her stay was so short. We hope to see Julia again for her next visit:)
