My name is Emmanuel from barcelona spain,computer addict,entrepreneur and digital marketer
Flexibility is also of emmanuel.
We were guests here for a month. The place was by no means equipped for anything longer than 2 days and 2 people maximum. Our reservation was for 3 people and the "bed" in the living room turned out to be an air mattress with a hole in it. The butane tank ran out as well so we were without hot water and a third bed for 3 days. In all fairness the problem seemed to be the owner of the apartment and Emmanuel did try to help although he only finally replaced the air mattress with a foam ikea futon pad after airbnb said he was obligated to. Sink and shower drains were all clogged and there were well over 100 stairs to climb too. An overall disappointing and more than anything frustrating experience. My money would have been better spent elsewhere. This was my first experience with airbnb though and thanks to their attention and support my situation was remedied to the best of their ability, which I certainly appreciated.
The flat that we booked was not available and to replace it Emmanuel gave us a room in his house, telling us that he had a big space for our needs and privacy, but actually it was not like this. We slept sharing a room in 4 people, in not hygienic conditions.
We also had problem to have the second mattress, in fact the first night we had only one bed for sleep. Even if he hosted us in his house, the only possible solution, we payed the same amount, 100 € per night, as anticipated for the first flat.
Emmanuel was great - very helpful, responded quickly, and made the stay really effort-free. The flat was lovely - and very central!
Debido a problemas de organización por parte de Emmanuel, tuvimos cambios a ultima hora. Tuvimos que hospedarnos 2 dias en un apartamento y el resto en este con el trastorno que supuso el cambio. El primero era pequeño y el baño minúsculo. El segundo mucho mejor. Un poco inpuntual a la recogida y a la entrega de llaves. Esperemos que sí hay una segunda vez vaya todo bien.
We had really good time in Barcelona. The flat was clean and the host was great.
The host canceled my reservation 5 days before arrival.
Flat is very closed to center and metro. It is also spacious and brightness. Emmanuel is sympathic and easy to contact if you need to.
Photos dont do the place much jiustice! Really nce, clean apartment. Perfect for a couple or three friends. (One bedroom and one fold out couch) Great area in Barcelona, a short distance away from hussle and bussle of Las Ramblas. An issue with wi fi- but we were suitably compensated. Overall, great experience.
Awesome time in Barcelona, the first night we got in we stayed in the centre of the city and Emmanuel told us we needed to be relocated to a different flat in Barcelona, it was right by the beach, so we had no complaints about that. We were moved to Barceloneta beach and the flat is literally 30 seconds away from the white sandy beach with lots of restaurants around, everything you need is right in the neighbourhood.
This was such a rad trip, my friends and I had such a great time hanging out at the beach daily and we met really cool locals at a bar right next to the beach, whenever we go back I'd definitely stay with Emmanuel! They were extremely accommodating, gave us our privacy, very easy going and professional! Would love to be back in a heartbeat!
The host canceled my reservation 9 days before arrival.
