Pixel was very nice and the location is superb! It's located incredibly near to La Rambla where all the excitement occurs. There's a metro station less than 5 minutes away so it makes travelling so much easier :)
No problems here. Basic, clean and great location. Pixel was helpful but not intrusive. As I found all over Spain, people eat much later than Aussies, so a lot of kitchen noise between 9-10 pm, but nothing unreasonable. Otherwise its a quiet and secure location. Good large common area.
I love the location totally. The building itself is built in 1880 so it's quite amazing. Let me first talk about the apartment, there are several rooms in it and as it's the low season now, I was the only guest in the apartment apart from Pixel and his brother. The room is similar to what you will see in the listing. However, I must say that as the place is in the hipster area, there could be some noise at night but it's not that bad too, it's manageable in my opinion. Also, as a typical Spanish house, it is not prepared for winter season but Pixel has a portable heater which is very useful as I'm very uncomfortable with the cold. Next, location; it is just 5-10mins away from the stop where you'll alight if you take the aerobus from the airport. It is also 1-2mins walk from the la rambus, the place most people will be going everyday, so you are indeed blessed if you stay here because you will never need to take the metro or bus. Lastly, about Pixel; he's really a cool guy, very unpretentious and easy going. I'll definitely come back here if I were to visit Barcelona again.
Great location and people!! Pixel dude - you are the best. Helped me out a lot and gave great advice. I will be returning for sure also... if ever in the US you have my FB handle please message me :)
Pixel was a fantastic host and very understanding with us. The apartment was a great place to stay for a large group and the location was ideal. Can only highly recommend. Would return without a doubt.
It's wonderful experience!!! Pixelmaniatik is a very funny gay and a little crazy maybe? Ahahahahah he invited me to have a Christmas dinner together and he taught me to do Cinese food......... This is also crazy
The house is in the excellent position! You can find everything around there. And if u have any question, Pixelmaniatik will help u.
Anyway, this is a wonderful place.
Pixel was friendly and helpful. The place has a great location and provided everything for a pleasant stay.
Firstly, it can't be overstated what a great location the apt is in: 5-10 min walk to Placa Catalunya and 2 min walk to Macba. The host, Guillermo, was friendly and helpful, but we were alarmed that we got no contact from him until less than 24 hrs before we got there even though we tried multiple times before then (our booking was made a few weeks before). Contacting Guillermo while we were there wasn't ideal either but things eventually worked out, e.g. we had to ask for extra quilts and towels since there weren't enough for the number of people in our group.
The apt was funky and nicely decorated but was quite run-down in places, and the best way to describe it would be "shabby-chic":
1) We (12 people) were over-optimistic that 1 bathroom would be enough for all of us. Our own fault and not a disaster but something to keep in mind the more of you there are. The bathroom itself was tiny with a shower cubicle, sink and toilet with some broken fixtures. Nice strong shower though and 24hrs hot water.
2) If you intend to cook, it would be very difficult as again the kitchen is very basic. There were plenty of plates, glasses, etc though and the excellent coffee maker was used a lot!
3) Wi-fi very poor: not fast and intermittent connection.
4) Can get cold (we were there mid-Nov) since many of the doors are draughty. Not sure how it would be in colder months.
5) Some wall sockets hanging out of the wall.
6) Roof-top terrace was unavailable when we were there due to missing key.
7) Nice comfortable beds with clean bed linen and towels.
Not trying to be harsh, just realistic! Ultimately, the good outweighed the bad and its all to do with location: at ~£28 per person per night for our stay it was quite good value.
El appartamiento es exactamente como en l'as fotos, muy bien situado à 2 minutas de la rambla y de plaza catalunya. Muy grande, perfection para grupos de amigos !
Pixel is a cool, helpful guy. His apartment is always clean&nice. It's location is also good for exploring the city. By the way, he has great knowledge of Barcelona, he helps you and gives you secret tips too. I'm very lucky to meet this guy. Summarize my experience, "What you expect before coming, you will get more."
Great and Nice Guest! Always followed our instructions and easy to communicate! We recommend this guest!
Guillermo was a very nice guest. Hopes to meet him again in the Moscow
Guillermo was a very nice guest of ours. Though we haven't many chances to talk to, as Guillermo was very active doing sightseeing and meeting his friends, he is a friendly and interesting person. Also he was flexible on check-in time, following the rules of the house, left the room clean. Hope to meet him some time again!
Guillermo is a great guy!
We met at the airport and we had good communication during his stay.
Guillermo thank you so much for staying in our houseboat. You where a great guest. We for sure want to meet you next time when we go to Barcelona and then stay in you beautifull appartment.
Simon and Jolanda
Al though Pixel and I only texted each other he is nice and correct.
Pixel could not make it to Caracas, instead he sent me a wonderful guest who s name is Jan, a great and sweet person that I trusted my home completely the minute I saw him.
Thank you Pixel and I am sure we will meet one of this days!
Easy going guy, clearly an Airbnb Veteran
Although I was traveling and did not get to meet Guillermo he was very easy to communicate with and was very responsive to our messaging. My roommates enjoyed having them as guests and felt they were very courteous and friendly. I look forward to having them visit again.
PixelManiatik is very cool and smart! it's easy to hospitate him, he's very polite!
Knowing Pixel for many years I can say He has deep knowledge of the city, it´s secrets and nightlife so besides having a comfortable stay in his really centric apartment you can also ask him for tips that will guide you through the not so know barcelona from ground zero.
