I had an amazing experience with Rodrigo and the apartment. It was clean, easy to use and very well situated for what I needed.
Rodrigo himself is amazing. With his friend Rafa, the two are full on knowledge a d I sights and very happy to share them.
I would highly recommend Rodrigo and his apartment. So much so that I plan to rent again next year for the same meetings.
The studio is really great, the same as shown in the pictures. We especially appreciate the artistic and creative decoration. We didn't meet Rodrigo, but his friend who met us at the studio is quite friendly. The location is convenient, minutes walk from Rambla avenue and metro station. So all in all, a good choice for anyone who visit Barcelona.
Before we arrived at the apartment we had problems with our flight due to a lightening storm and having to be diverted to Valencia instead of Barcelona airport. So instead of arriving on time we ended up being 10hours later than expected. Not a great start to our holiday but Rodrigo and his friend Rafa (who was the one greeting us) both helped out as much as they could to make sure we could make it to the apartment without any more problems.
The apartment was just how it looked in the photos. The bed was comfortable, shower was amazing and there was plenty of space for the two of us.
We didn't have any problems with the apartment.
I had previously stayed around the corner a month before so I knew the area was safe and friendly. The apartment is very close to a supermarket, cafe and a very short walk to La Ramblas.
We had a very pleasant stay at Rodrigo's apartment.
Very nice flat
We unfortunately did not meet Rodrigo, who was out vacationing as well..and near where we live in the states! Go figure! Our communication with him was great, prompt and easy. His friend let us in and in fact was looking for us & yelled from the balcony knowing that we must be the visitors.
This is a perfect location to see all the major city sights. One can get a little turned around if you're not use to all the small corridors & veering streets, but we did find it. It also helps to be very clear with the taxi driver. Ours unfortunately let us off in Rambla rather than Raval even though we showed the address & the map. That was the only unfortunate taxi incident we had - others were super helpful.
Rodrigo's has all the basics: utensils, bedding, towels & such. The most important for us is the tea maker/kettle: an electric one right there on the counter. The place is very sweetly decorated (I appreciate art in a space), neat & organized. Curtains to the windows and also for the sleeping area are great help to catch up on sleep. Don't underestimate the advantages of having a washer! The shower had great pressure & both my husband & I loved the bathroom - nicely done. Although next to the Raval walk way it was so quiet in the eves (the noisier part of the day)...although if you like the sounds, open the balcony door to soak in the neighborhood songs: scooters, children playing, restaurant chatter, and such.
Perhaps the only drawbacks for others: it is up stairs, but not bad. The bathroom door has to be swung all the way open & closed to reach the toilet (minor detail - there's still PLENTY/TONS of room compared to other European bathrooms). And we used the couch as our dresser - laying out clothes & rearranging luggage, but still had room for seating. Taller folks be careful of the living room chandelier, but appreciate it's nature ;).
The most important part!? Rodrigo gives you tons of info on restaurants & sights and is super accessible to advise when needed. We texted a question (not time pending) & got an answer within an hour. So impressed! His friend was the same - we texted & we were immediately answered.
Taxi's were easy to catch from the neighborhood. A pharmacy was close by (my husband contracted a cold) & there's restaurants galore. You could have coffee at one, a meal at another & a treat at the market that's close by.
I will use Rodrigo's space again, wouldn't hesitate, and look forward to a future visit!
