I am an entrepreneur from the UK living in Spain. I have a great beach front place which I have been living in for over 10 year. If has all high-tech amenities and is probably one of the nicest places you can rent in Barcelona.

The apartment was as advertised - great location, well maintained building, quiet, very clean, and all amenities were there and worked well. The technology in the apartment, notably the wireless internet, various media sources, and networked door locks all worked really well. Also, the place actually seemed even larger in real life than it appeared in the photos.
Dealing with the host was very easy, he was always friendly, quick to reply to my emails, and flexible on our last minute need to delay our arrival time due to a change in our travel plans. Once we were booked with him he was easy to also reach via phone/SMS/whatsapp as well, and he absolutely did not disturb us in any way during our stay.
We would absolutely look to rent it again should we come back to Barcelona in the future.
Very nice host. Apartment in very good condition, slight signs of use, but no problem. Fridge was filled anything else. Key collection and return of the keys were kept completely straightforward.
A beautiful apartment with a wonderful view. Everything was perfect, we would at any time like to book this apartment again.
They say where you stay is about “Location, Location, Location”, and that is certainly true with this apartment. You are a short walking distance to two beaches; another beach which is voted the third best beach in the world by the discovery channel survey is one metro stop from the apartment. There are many restaurants near the apartment while it is a short walk to the metro to get anywhere in the city. The view from the apartment is great.
Before we arrived and during our stay, Forian was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had about the apartment or Barcelona. He was very accommodating on the time of arrival and worked through many questions with grace and great accuracy.
Start the morning waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the ocean. The area is quiet in the mornings which you can either spend at the nearby beaches or exploring the Sagrada Família or the Park Güell with plenty of time to take a dip in the ocean in the afternoon to cool down. Other options are guided tours and day trips to the Pyrenees Mountains or nearby countries.
Once you are done with exploring the historical sites or hanging out at the beach, the apartment is wired for Mega entertainment with super fast WIFI, many channels on TV, Net Flicks and other movie services, DVD player, VCR player and whole house sound. When none of those things work for you, there are about a 100 or so DVDs and another 100 or so CD's to choose from in the apartment to wind-down your day.
The food is great with several good restaurants nearby. We enjoyed the food at Roma- we recommend the pizza or lasagna which is just right around the corner after you leave the apartment. If you don't want to eat out there is a grocery store out the apartment to the left and straight down the road a few blocks in the "the Center" on the bottom level. The kitchen has a wonderful espresso maker – beats out Starbucks and is super simple to use. Make sure you try the Tapas and the Iberian ham.
When it is time to retire for the night the beds are very comfortable with air conditioning and fans in both bedrooms. There are also two extra air mattresses that could be used. The two bathrooms were nice and clean.
I have been to many countries and this was one of the best locations and my family could not have had a better apartment to stay at in this beautiful city. We highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Barcelona.
The place was just wonderful, outstanding and beyond any expectations. We would have never thought how wonderful the location could be terms of being located in the heart of anything a tourist wants to reach, wonderful views, nice furniture, high end music connections and so on. Our host was wonderful. Florian made our stay being one thing to definitely remember. THANK YOU!!!
Great location once you get a feel for the area -- and would have been great with the beach right there, had the weather held up. Next time! Thanks to Florian for his responsiveness.
The 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious. 2 good size bedrooms, each with it's own full sized bathroom. The apartment is on the corner of the buiding on the 5th floor. The photo on Airbnb is taken from the balcony that looks out onto Carrer Salvador Espriu, and the 2nd balcony looks out to the side street and also toward the beach. On arrival I contacted Markku who lives in a 3rd floor apartment and does the key handover and tour of the apartment, Marrku was extremely helpful and a genuinely nice person, very willing to help, thanks once again Marrku. Did not use the air conditioners as although it was high 20's the fans in the rooms did a great job. The apartment was across the road from a hop on hop off bus, and the underground rail stop was 2 blocks from the front door. The supermarket was 3 blocks away and housed in a shopping centre, where we also found an ATM. Spent a couple of days lazing on the beach. A trip to Sagrada Familia was well worth it, as was a visit to the Museu di Historia where we went down into the remains of a roman village. A train trip out from Barcelona city to Montserrat was fascinatIng, and the funicular cable car rose at an angle of 62.5 percent. It amazes us that Bacilicas (churches) are built so high and so isolated on top of mountains.
I would recommend Florian's apartment to anyone looking for a good quality apartment within a short stroll to the beach and transport stops.
Great place, convenient location. Florian is easy to get a hold of and a great host. My first experience with Air BNB and it was a good one!
Amazing location!! Right across the street from the harbor and restaurants, next to the beach. Apartment has lots of conveniences and fully stocked kitchen. All the A/C's weren't working while we were there, but it wasn't too hot with the balcony doors open. The apartment was really convenient and comfortable.
Excellent location! The Olympic Village has been so well-maintained since '92. Highly recommended if you want to stay away from the crowded city center. We felt very safe in Florian's neighborhood. Beach so close and water was clean. Very comfortable accommodations. The view is absolutely spectacular. We felt right at home while on vacation. Florian's apt is so spacious and clean. All the modern conveniences were most appreciated as we had bkft and dinner every day at home.
During our stay, only 1 of 3 air conditioners was working. However, there
were 3 fans available and a nice cross breeze every night despite the 35 degree weather. Be careful to monitor the a/c water evacuation level on the balcony. Needs emptying approx. every nine hours.
Florian was in touch regularly via phone and email and his neighbor Markku let us in the apt and was available if we needed him. Thank goodness for the safe and free (!) underground parking in Florian's bldg.
We will definitely recommend this place to others and hope to return again soon.
the owner has good communication plus a tech geek like me:) I can definitely recommend this apartment for the beach & party lovers.
Excellent communication. Wonderful renter! We would welcome him again!
He was friendly, polite and clean. Really good host
La comunicación con Florian fué perfecta y muy fluida. Es una persona independiente a la vez que adaptable a las situaciones sobrevenidas.
Dejó la casa en perfectas condiciones. Fué un placer alojarle en "La casa del mandarino".
Very nice guy, communicative and responsible. A very good experience guesting Florian.
Florian was a wonderful visit. He was very friendly, polite and took care very well for apartment. We hope to see him again in Buenos Aires. Strongly recommended...
Florian and his girlfriend are so nice and is also beautiful to see the happy couple traveling together acting like very good friends. They are competent travels and they only ask for something if really need it. If you see they are needing something, just give to them, otherwise they will not ask for. I recommend them for anybody else. They are clean, quiet, sweet and respectful, happy and smart. They also speak a very good Portuguese, which is a quite difficult for Germans, and they love animals. Good hearth. I loved them!
Florian is a great host and his beautiful apartment is ideally located on the beach, it's the perfect place to stay in Barcelona!
I met Florian through my work as and Airbnb photographer. He is a very friendly and nice guy and his apartment is absolutely stunning, one of those places where you can spend hours taking pictures of all of its little details and beautiful spots. Highly recommended, I'm sure that you'll love it if you decide to stay over! : )
Florian is not just a great flat-mate, but a very good friend.
He speaks several languages fluently which makes it easy for him to get along with pretty much everyone.
He's organised, very tidy and clean.
We shared few places in the world and I am sure we will do it many other times.
Best guest anyone can have.
Florian is an entrepreneur that has traveled the world extensively. Having stayed in hundreds of 4 and 5 star hotels he knows exactly what makes the customer very happy.
Not only is his flat spectacular he goes the extra mile to ensure your stay is remarkable.
Very kind and nice person.
