We are a hippy-happy family from Barcelona with two kids. We'll be glad to have you around in our loft in St. Pere - Sta. Caterina's district, at a 5min walk from glamourous Born.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights. Xavi was a great host, he was always in touch and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and cafes in the area. We absolutely loved the neighborhood and adored the loft - very clean, a great location, and a lovely place to stay!
Our first experience with airbnb.com was a trip to Barcelona where we stayed at Xavi´s Loft for 5 nights. It was perfect from the first contact to sadly haveing to head back home. It was an easy walk from the Airport-shuttlebus and we dropped of our stuff to explore the neighbourhood.
It is a realy friendly and safe area and we imidiately felt comortable. It doesn´t seem touristy, even thouh you have a lot of the mustsee-places within walking distance. The Loft itself ist very spacious and very well equipped (Note that there is no TV, wich in my opinion ist completly dispensable with all these attractions around). We especially liked all the nice details as in the perfect kitchen area, the cool bathroom or the selfmade bookshelfs. Needless to say that it was very clean.
We found it very helpful, that Xavi informed us in advance about things that are important to him. That prevents both from not getting what each expects.
For us, we got way more than we expected! Definately two thumbs up on Xavi´s Loft!

I spent almost a week at Xavi's place. Very nice experience. Great loft and central location. I would come back there next time in Barcelona! Cheers, Yassine
We enjoyed our stay at Xavi's apartment very much. It was spacious and well appointed, and well located to explore the city's Gothic Quarter. It has a lot of character and is clearly the result of of care and attention to detail. The bed was comfortable with an extra large duvet. As the street is fairly narrow it can be a little noisy, but we never found this to be a problem.
Great unique apartment, full of character.
Notre séjour chez xavi et adriana s'est très bien passé ! Leur appartement est très sympa, spacieux, chaleureux ... Et bien placé !
Idéal pour une famille comme la notre avec 2 enfants (dont un de 4 mois).
Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement et serions prêt à y retourner avec plaisir !
Very good appartment, well located and nice ! Plus the host make everything easy once there !!! thanks xavi for these few days.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Xavi's apartment. He made an exception for us and was able to let us check in on a Sunday. The apartment information he sends is very detailed and helpful. His partner Adriadna met us at there and reviewed the apartment details with us. We never had any problems getting into apartment and the neighborhood is great! It's very close to the Arc de Triomphe (sorry if it is spelled wrong) train station, and an easy walk to the gothic quarter, l'exiample, el born, and barcolenetta. There are cafes, supermarkets, and pastry shops right down the street--however there are no cafes directly below the apartment making it very quiet! Just remember when staying anywhere in barcelona-you are in the city and there is noise. Other than the occasional scooter the apartment is quiet.
Unfortunately there was some confusion in receiving the key, which involved waiting around for a few hours and numerous phone calls – bad start.
Xavi tried to help to get us in - but to be honest there should not have been a problem in the first place.
Other than that once we got into the apartment everything was good.
Location: Very good, safe
Apartment: Clean spacious and has everything that you would need.
Barcelona: Always great!
Apartment very well located and fully equipped.
