Our overall experience at the studio was fairly positive; however, there were a few complaints. The biggest being that the street that the apartment is located on is pretty sketchy - lots of prostitutes. It was very scary coming home after a night out, especially with a group of 3 girls. Nobody ever bothered us though!! The bathroom was another big downfall. The floors and toilets were constantly soaked because of water coming from the shower and the hot water heater above the toilet kept leaking - it would drop on us every time we used the restroom. We left with all of our belongings having a very musty smell, I think mostly a result of all of the condensation in the bathroom. Might have helped to open the balcony windows, but we did not feel safe or comfortable doing so since it looked out into others apartments, and like I said, there were a lot of prostitutes out on the street below.
If the street we were on wasn't so bad, it would have been an ideal location as we were only blocks away from La Boqueria! Brought food home from this market and cooked several nights!
Stella made us feel right at home. We enjoyed the place very much and you can't beat the location. It was a little noisy but it's to be expected with a location so close to all the action. Definitely would recommend! Thank you so much Stella.
Stella's place is absolutely incredible - it is in such a convenient area to town, is super clean and has such an awesome feel and vibe to it! We felt extremely lucky to have found such an awesome Barcelona pad and highly recommend Stella's place to anyone! It was so nice to be off the Ramblas, yet be so convenient to it, only a 1-2 minute walk - with supermarkets, markets and some of the coolest hippest shops around this place was an absolute gem!
Stella was a great host. She was very accomodating before we even arrived and sent so many great tips on where to go and where to eat. We had a late return flight and even though Stella had new guests checking in, she let us leave our bags to pick up later so we could visit and travel easily. Very grateful for this!
The studio was comfortable, everything as described. The neighbourhood was quite bustling, lots of bars nearby, but very convenient. We practically walked everywhere but the metro station was really close too. Was a great stay! Thank you stella!
상냥하게도 우리가 도착할 시간에 맞춰서 기다려주었고, 친절하게 룰에대해 설명해주었습니다. 만나기 전부터 여행에 대한 정보에 도움을 주었고 커뮤니케이션에 응대가 빨라서 매우 고마웠습니다.
관광지와 교통편이 나온 지도도 보내주었죠.
그녀의 집은 매우 깨끗하고, 생활에 필요한 모든 집기, 가구, 편의시설이 완비된 아주 좋은 스튜디오였습니다.
근처에 람블라스 거리가 있고, 까르푸도 가깝고, 리세우역이 있으며 해변까지 도보로 대략 15분정도면 갈수있는 좋은 위치입니다.
숙박하는 동안 부족한것 없이 편안히 지낼 수 있는 매우 좋은 스튜디오입니다.
We had a fantastic week in the apartment and Stella was such a great host. The location of the apartment is amazing and so easy to get everywhere, especially being so close to the ramblas and the metro station. The apartment was the perfect size, and had everything we could need.
Stella was a great host, in particular with her folder of recommendations. Very helpful to find lovely places to eat and drink nearby. We would have been lost without it!
Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for anyone coming to Barcelona.
First off, the studio's location is very convenient. It is a 5 minute walk to Liceu metro, so getting to other sites in BCN takes no longer than 10-20 minutes. The bocqueria market is also very close by for the freshest of groceries.
Secondly, you can take said fresh groceries and use the studio's well-equipped kitchen to cook. People tended to pay it forward, so there might be left over oil, sauce, spices, etc. for use.
Thirdly, Stella is a very accommodating hostess, who made our stay welcoming and comfortable. Be sure to read the guide in the white binder, as it has some indispensable and helpful information!
We stayed at Stellas apartment for four days/three nights and didn't want to leave at all. She made our stay very comfortable and welcomed us with a bottle of cava. Everything was just perfect and exactly as on the pictures. Stella was so friendly and so easy to get in contact with. The apartment was superclean, the bed plus the sofa was comfortable , the fridge had some basic stuff, towels, hairdryer, shampoo and other basic tolietries was also provided. Well, I cant come up with anything bad that really bothered us. The only negative thing was the neighbourhood. It such a pitty that I have to mention this, because the apartment and Stella as a host was absolutely amazing. But, Raval area and especially Carrer de robador (where the apartment is) are not the finest parts of Barcelona. There are prostitutes down the street, homeless food shelters right outside the door and in general strange things are happening around the corner. I was lucky staying with my boyfriend at Stellas apartment, I wouldnt even manage to get outside on my own. But then again, these people doesnt do any harm if you dont stare - soon you get used to this reality and learn to appreciate it. Thank you Stella for letting us stay. We are definitely coming back.

Stella was an excellent guest! It was lovely to meet her for the check in, we had a great chat and found we had a lot in common. She was really easy going and appreciative of the apartment, there were no issues during her stay and she left the place in perfect order. Highly recommended and welcome back any time:)
