We had an incredible time in Barcelona and flat was amazing, very central, very nice and all in all the perfect place to stay. Lovely people and very helpful would highly recommend Nina and her apartment.
It was very nice to stay at Nina's place. Perfectly situated in the old town with nice bars and shops around. During the stay (december 2012) it was a bit cold when we arrived in the loft, but Nina got an extra gas oven which worked wonderful. I recommend highly to stay at her place if you visit Barcelona!
We had an amazing time staying with Nina and Ellen in Barcelona. They are both really friendly and lovely people with so much knowledge of Barcelona. The room was fantastic. We had 5 girls all together at one point but it still felt spacious. We felt so at home. I had been told El Raval was a dodgy area but we never once felt unsafe. The stairs to the apartment...well that's an adventure in itself, but once you reach the top floor its so worth it. I know where I will be staying next time I'm in Barcelona.
Nina's place is in a really cool area and she's done a great job of decorating the place. If you want a room with a lot of character (in a neighborhood with a lot of character), you should definitely stay here. There are tons of restaurants/cafes/bakeries/bars along and around her street and it's close to a metro stop--we walked to most places we wanted to see and took the metro to the beach a couple times. And Nina and the other housemates are super friendly.
Only thought would be to make sure you have ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Cool neighborhood=neighborhood that doesn't go to sleep. It's pretty noisy all night. But I'm a heavy sleeper, so...
We had a lovely 10 days at Nina's apartment. She was very helpful about everything we have asked. The apartment was right in the center of the city, so everything was quite accessible. If I decide to revisit Barcelona, I know where to stay.
Staying in Nina's flat was a great way to experience Barcelona - both she and her roommate Ellen are lovely, and she's got a map painted on the wall of the room with her recommendations on food, music, and bars. (And she's more than happy to give you directions and recommendations herself, too.) The neighborhood is definitely located in one of the city's cultural hubs, so it's easy to find the rhythm of the city. We had a great time staying with her! Recommended!
Everything went smooth and easy while our stay in barcelona.
The map that is drawn onto the wall in the guest room was very nice to get an idea where the nice places in the city are.
The Room itself is not big but there is enough space for two people.
We enjoyed the feeling that we are part of Barcelona living for a couple of days in the very center of el raval where a lot of nice cafés and bars are.
We surely will come back at some stage!
Thank you Nina! really nice stay in Barcelona, good located, great atmosphere, quite free and cozy....
A wonderful flat and a wondeful host! The room is bright and airy with great views of the city (lots of stairs to climb to reach the flat, but the pay off is the view). The rest of the flat is also beautiful, a simple kitchen and bathroom - nothing too fancy but everyhting works.
Located in the heart of El Raval, (before I went I read lots of things on the internet that said this was a dodgy are of Barcelona but I never once felt intimidated, not even when we were walking home in the early hours!) a busy, thriving neighbourhood, the location was perfect for us... lovely cafes, bars and restaurants all close by and not far from other great neighbourhoods - it took us about twenty minutes to walk over to El Born.
Nina and Ellen are great hosts, very relaxed and friendly. Nina has painted a brilliant map on the wall of the guest bedroom which shows you where all the good bars + coffe shops are.
I highly recommend it! x x x
Nina's very helpful and her place is nice and perfectly located. Thanks!
