Francesco was a lovely, charming host and he gave us great tips on local restaurants and where the best shopping district was. The apartment is small but it has everything you'd need for an active holiday and the views from the terrace are amazing. Local cafe on the corner was our breakfast go to and authentic and devoid of tourism, which is welcome at times and the coffee is divine. Its in a quiet but well positioned location to explore the city and get a good nights sleep. I'm coming back same time next year and I'd love to stay here again.
My husband and I recently returned from a two week stay in this apartment, and we can't say enough good things about the place. It was our first time renting instead of booking a hotel, and the experience was stress free and seamless. Francesco was a very responsive, helpful and genuinely friendly host. The apartment was in excellent condition, clean and contained everything we needed, including a welcoming bottle of Cava in the fridge. It is located in a great area, close to public transportation but walking distance to almost everything. A charming and delicious cafe nearby, markets to buy food, cash machine, taxi stand, bus, all meters from the secure front entrance. The views from the ample terrace were awesome, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We hope to stay there again, and recommend Francesco and his apartment!
What a great find. The apartment was clean and comfortable and there was everything we needed. It is well equipped and well furnished. Particularly liked the outside area it was fantastic, as it was quite warm we used it quite a lot. There was a great view overlooking the rooftops. There are plenty of shops and eating places around this area and they were reasonably priced. Our host left us lots and lots of leaflets about where to go and what to do, ideal if it is your first visit to Barcelona. it made a great change from the hustle and bustle of an hotel as it was quiet in the evenings. We would like to say thanks for the Cava which was waiting for us in the fridge and we will certainly consider going again.
Francesco was a great host. We changed arrival time several times but he was willing to accomodate our timing. We stayed 3 nights at a 4 star hotel before we moved to his place, and we still prefer Francesco's place, as it is a nice cosy place. He is very attentive and helpful host, giving us tips where to get cheap and good food. The place is very nice and well equipped. Location is very convenient, it is within walking distance to few restaurants, metro, and our favorite place "Lidl". I would definitely recommend his place to my family and friends.
The apartment maximizes the Barcelona experience. Located next to Ciutadella park, it is close to city center, whereas Barcelona's touristic attractions can be accessed via all means of transport, very close to the sea as well. The apartment is an attic with a splendid view, very well equipped, and next to it there are supermarkets, small restaurants and one can find more or less everything. It was very clean -bathroom, kitchen and bedclothes - and our host was very polite, discreet and extremely helpful. Overall, we had a great time, Francesco's apartment is highly recommended.
