The apartment was nice and very well located. There were many great restaurants nearby and the beach was just around the corner. We stayed here in February, and it was very peaceful, no noise from the street or neighbours. Kassy's husband was very helpful and responded very quickly if we had something to ask. The kitchen was well equipped. Even a bit noisy, the air conditioner kept us warm during cold evenings. Overall we had very nice time in Barceloneta!
Très bel appartement très bien situé : dans le Barrio gothico tout près des ramblas et du port. Nous étions une famille de 5 et avons trouvé l'appartement très spacieux et bien équipé. Seul point négatif: la chambre est située au dessus d'un bar et il y a un peu de bruits à l'heure de la fermeture.
Nous recommandons cette adresse.
This apartment is ideally located right near the beach, bus lines, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, markets, etc. If you are visiting Barcelona for a short time and just want to relax in the sun near the beaches, this is it. Location, location, location. Standard was good, I a cannot complain. You get what you pay for and the photos are all very accurate. The hosts are very good and responsive. If you call with a problem or a question they will be there immediately and do everything they can to make your stay a pleasant one.
The apartment was just great. Best view over Barceloneta Beach that you can have.
Great neighbor (traveler aswell), great city.
Kassys friend who gave us the key was perfectly in time!
Kassy was not available but her friend Zorica met us to handover the keys. The description and photos are exactly as it is. The location is great! It's very center, near the metro (Drassanes station). Lots of nearby local shops, restaurants, bars. Just a few minutes walk away from Las Ramblas and the end connects to Placa Catalunya (we just found out on our last day!) The kitchen was very useful for us. The AC's heater isn't consistent and needs improvement. The washing machine is pretty handy too, though an instruction guide on how to use it can be helpful. Overall, we had a a lovely stay.
The apartment was located in the central area and directly on the harbour. We spend New Years Eve there and could actually see some firework. The appartment was clean and cozy and the WIFI was working. It was a really nice stay and the view was amazing.
The only problem was the hot water which wasn't working all the time. After one quick shower the water went cold. Which is not practical for up to 6 people who can stay there.
We had a great time in Kassy's apartment in Barceloneta. Arriving there, we were greated not only by sunshine and blue sky (end of december!), but also with a freshly cleaned flat :) We felt very welcome and whenever we had questions by email they were quickly answered.
The location in Barceloneta is great for getting into the city from there and also for going out in the evening. The sandy beach of Barcelona is only minutes away, and when searching for a good place to eat just turn around the corner and walk around in the streets - there is some nice places to discover there. Supermarkets and Metro station is also only mintes away by foot. We could not imagine a better place to start exploring Barcelona!
This was a very bad Airbnb experience for my friend and I - the worst one we've ever had.
The location was excellent. We waited by the door and a lady came to let us in. She did not explain who she was, and even though she was very nice, she was clearly lost inside the building, even though she claimed to have lived there.
The apartment was older than what is seen on the pictures, especially the bathroom which was full of mold. It was really cold inside the flat and throughout our stay (5 nights) it never got warmer. There was no heater.
The problem was when I attempted to take my first shower. After a couple of minutes the water went ice cold - as the apartment was freezing this was not a pleasant experience. We messaged Kassy to tell her about this. Soon after another lady (different than the one who opened the door) came into the house also introducing herself as Kassy. She assumed that the boiler was probably damaged. With this whole problem we had already wasted half of our first day in Barcelona. She said she would come back at 7 pm with a technician to fix it.
When we were back in the evening there was a message from her saying that she came back at 7 pm to test the water and that it lasted 7 minutes. She also said that she timed herself showering and it took her a very specific 4 minutes and 38 seconds, claiming surely 7 min of warm water would be enough for two people on holidays.
After we replied saying this was unacceptable, she suggested we could leave and she would pay us back the remainder of the nights. This was on the 30th of December in one of the busiest European cities around New Years. Having to pick between spending our remaining days "house hunting" or enjoying Barcelona, we picked putting up with a very bad Airbnb host and experience, due to the lack of options.
From what we described above and other details of our stay we could tell that this apartment clearly belongs to an agency and not a private host, which is a shame as it goes against what AirBnb is meant to be about.
Before you commit the same mistake, please message me on Airbnb and I will be happy to send you pictures of what the apartment actually looks like and share a bit more of my experience.
Kassy and her husband were extremely kind welcoming me with some local fruit. They are very responsive as well, having sent over a long lists of local bars and restaurants. The apt is quite nice as well. Exactly as the photos and felt like a real home. Really enjoyed this place and my hosts.
Es war wunderbar, wahrscheinlich der schönste Blick in Barcelona. Werden wahrscheinlich wiederkommen um von Morgens bis Abends aufs Meer zu sehen. Die Gastgeber waren reizend und haben uns herzlich empfangen, danke. Bei der Abreise waren wir traurig das Appartment und Barcelona zu ver lassen.

Kassy was a great guest. Very good communication, respectful, the apartment was left very clean. I would definitely host her again and I strongly recommend her to everyone.
I met Ksenia and Drasko couple of months after arriving in Barcelona. They are very kind, helpful people. They are hard working people and always happy to help the persons who are staying in their flats : if you need a nice place to eat , drink simply ask, they will be happy to offer their precious advices!
Ksenia and Drasko are the kind of people you want to deal with when you come to Barcelona. I have seen how much time and effort they put into decorating flats and making everything perfect. Not only are they fantastic people, that love their jobs but also they are incredibly nice. I spent wonderful hours with them in Barcelona. Being in touch with them will surely enrich your stay in Barcelona. They know Barcelona so well by now that they can give you good advise on nearly everything. On top of that they both speak a lot of languages. I think it must be more than 6 :)
Ksenia and Drasko are two incredible people with big hearts, who always look after their friends. Workwise they're both reliable and committed to what they're doing and it's been a true pleasure working with these guys. I wish them all the best with their business as well as in life. Un beso grande!!
Ksenia is a very responsable person, as well as easygoing and happy no matter what!!!
I know Ksenia for almost 8 years, and I can say that Ksenia is an honest and correct person, responsible and punctual. I am lucky to know her personally!
