SINGLE ROOM IN HAPPY FLAT – EXCELLENT LOCATION!
On the left side of l’Eixample, on Entenza street in between Gran Via Avenue and Diputacio street 2 min walk to Plaza Espanya and 10 min to Plaza Catalunya just in the heart of the “Gayxample”.
The room is really cozy (interior with a window) and painted in orange and grey. Single bed, shelves, hanger, wardrobe and bedside table. Heater in winter and fan in summer.
The flat is comfortable and has been recently painted in light colours and brightly decorated. We are a total of 2 people in the flat, my mother who moved in a couple of months ago and will be staying until next year and myself. She doesn't speak english but she is very cool. We have a small dog (short hair), he is very cute and calm.
The kitchen (with ceramic hob) is fully equipped and it is available for breakfast. (Also available for meals in case of staying more than 6 nights).
There is 1 bathroom (complete, with bathtub) and another separated WC.
Wi-Fi conection and building with elevator.
I am the one to keep in touch at all times with the guest via email or whatsapp to arrange the arrival to the apartment and the one to receive and handle in the keys. I amnot much at home, if I am, I will most probably be resting (I work a lot in 2 different places) but I am always connected in case the guest may have a question or if any problem might occur.
WHat I love about living in this area is that you can walk anywhere you want
PLAZA ESPANYA - 3 min walk (Underground Line 3),
FIRA BARCELONA (Exhibition Centre) and ARENAS Shopping Centre - 3 min walk,
MONTJUÏC GARDENS, PALAU SANT JORDI, OLYMPIC STADIUM, CATALUNYA'S ART HISTORY MUSEUM just 10 min walk!!!
It is also important for you to know that all main supermarkets can be found in the area and that a 24 hr Supermarket is just round the corner on Gran Via Avenue.
AEROBUS to the Airport and many other buses and trains
ROCAFORT Line 1 is the closest underground station, just 100 m away.
BARCELONA SANTS is 10 min away from where you can take a train to the AIRPORT, SITGES, MATARO, MANRESA, MALAGA, MADRID, SEVILLE, etc.
I remind the guest there is a little dog in the house. He is 8 years old, small, very sociable and calm. It is very weird to hear him bark. All guests who are familiar with dogs became friends with Vos right away but if the guest doesn't like animals or if he or she is afraid of dogs, Vos will feel this and will get nervous, in that case, he will bark quite a lot every time he sees this person around the kitchen or the corridor.

Hatte eine wunderbare Zeit - auch dank Rodrigos unkomplizierter Unterbringungen und Gastfreundschaft. Er ist wirklich ein sehr freundlicher und zugewandter Gastgeber, der einem das Gefühl gibt, willkommen zu sein. Die Wohnung liegt perfekt zentral, von wo aus man sowohl das Nachleben wie alle Touristen-Attraktionen leicht erreichen kann. Kurzum: so sollte eine Airbnb-Unterkunft sein!
Der Gastgeber war beim Check-in nicht anwesend, da er arbeitete. Das Beziehen des Zimmers hat nur zufällig geklappt, obwohl der Mitbewohner nicht gebrieft war.
Der Gastgeber kommt im Nachhinein mit neuen Regeln, die er zuvor weder mündlich noch schriftlich angegeben hat. Er stellt nach Gutdünken den WLAN-Router ab und beschwert sich darüber, Lebensmittel im Kühlschrank zu deponieren.
Der Gastgeber trat mir gegenüber äußerst unfreundlich und unprofessionell auf. Entscheidend für meine Bewertung ist die Hygiene. Leider muss ich feststellen, dass die Wohnung des Gastgebers insgesamt massiv verdreckt ist:
- Im Zimmer fand ich 2x Kakalaken über das Bett laufen
- Es gab keine Wechsel-Bettwäsche oder Handtücher über 12 Nächte
- Das Bad wurde nur 1x vom Gastgeber oberflächlich geputzt
- Alte Blut-, Kot- und Rostflecken wurden niemals entfernt
- Toilettenspülung, Dusche und Einrichtung sind z. T. kaputt
- Die Mikrowelle hat noch niemals Putzmittel gesehen
- Im Kühlschrank kleben überall alte Lebensmittelreste
- Die Küche war insgesamt stark verdreckt und nicht geputzt
Diese Unterkunft ist hygenisch sofort aus dem Verkehr zu ziehen! Es gibt eine Fotodokumentation zu diesem AirBnB-Quartier, die ich auf meinem Blog veröffentliche.
Für Rückfragen zu diesem Quartier stehe ich gern jederzeit Rede und Antwort. Ich empfehle, von diesem Quartier dringend die Finger zu lassen! Solch eine dreckige Unterkunft ist mir während der vergangenen 5 Jahre Bed & Breakfast in Barcelona noch nicht untergekommen - bei keiner Agentur. #fail
The host was not present at check-in, as he worked. The occupation of the room worked only by chance, although the roommate was not briefed.
The host is coming with new rules, which he hasn't previously given either orally or in writing. He is at the discretion from the wireless router and complains to deposit food in the refrigerator.
The host is unfriendly and unprofessional. Vital for my review is the hygiene. I regret to say that the apartment is a total host of massively dirty:
- In the room I found 2x cockroaches running across the bed
- There was no change sheets or towels over the 12 nights!
- The bathroom was only 1x superficially cleaned by the host
- Old blood, excrement and never rust stains were removed
- Flushing the toilet, shower and furnishings are partly broken
- The microwave has never seen cleaner
- In the fridge stick anywhere old food residues
- The whole kitchen was very dirty and not cleaned
This accommodation is hygienic to immediately pull off the road! There is a photo documentation of this AirBnB-flat, which I publish on my blog.
For inquiries relating to this neighborhood I am always happy to answer questions. I recommend strongly to let the fingers of this neighborhood! Such a dirty quarter I have not yet come across during the past 5 years Bed & Breakfast in Barcelona - with any B&B-agency. #fail
This review is absolutely no true, AirBnB Support working on this.
Unfortunately Thomas was the only bad experience I had hosting at AirBnB. THE MOST DISRESPECTFUL PERSON I EVER MET.
He took posession of the fridge and used the kitchen for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I didn't say anything because I didn't want to be mean but a short term rent (and the ad says so) includes the use of the kitchen just for breakfast. Of course you can cook lunch and dinner too but you must ask for permission first or at least give notice you will. By the way, he never left the kitchen nor the table clean after using them.
He stayed all day long (every single day most of the morning and the whole afternoon and night) at the living-room working.
Two nights before his check-out he stayed until 3 am coughing and typing. My room is next to the livingroom, so I had to ask him kinidly to leave the common area. This ofended him (sorry about that! Common sense. House rules.) But the last night he spent at my place he stayed connected chatting on (website hidden) until 2 am. He has this deep voice and coughs every 2 minutes really loud so I had to ask him to leave the common area again. He felt ofended once again, He said I didn't let him work!
When he left the common areas as kitchen, livingroom and corridor he never turned the lights off. I came home a couple of times, no-one was there and all the lights on.
I felt invaded, harrassed and really unconfortable with this person around. DISRESPECTFUL, DIRTY, CARELESS, zero common sense, zero communication, he coughs really loud every 2 min aproximately and berps while he talks to you (he did this several times as a normal thing and never said "oops! sorry!". Really disgusting.
On top of all this HE opened a ticket on AirBnB Customer Service to critize MY place. Not a nice person at all in any sense.
Awfull behaviour! I have a whole year of good experiences and nice comments on my flat and hosting This was a real pity.
I really liked Rodrigo and his sisters hospitality. Very respectfull and free minded. The location was perfect. Most of all I'll remember my chats with Vos at night ;))
Me han hecho sentir como en (website hidden) ubicación es excelente y el trato inmejorable.
Muchas gracias por todo.
La habitación de Rorigo es muy cómodo, tranquilo y lindo, se ve como la foto que está en web. Y Rorigo es súper amable y educativo, su hermana también, me ayudaban mucho! Estoy contenta que viví en su habitación, muchas gracias a vosotros!
