Francesco is an amazing host. He has everything a guest needs. Extremely clean and comfortable space.
Francesco’s place is in an amazing, centrally located area. It is in walking distance from some Barcelona's best attractions. Francesco was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. Check-in was very well organized and efficient. We loved the balcony and the house was exactly as-pictured.
The apartment was lovely; the view from both ways is superb. The terrace makes the apartment, the view is great.
Franz was a superb host and helped us significantly so we could take advantage of the short time we had in Barcelona.
The location was easy to find both from the airport and then on the way back from exploring. Its spot on location wise, easy to get to the beach and the W, and also Sangrada Familia etc. which can be easily accessed.
I'd highly recommend Franz's place - we were there for a short period of time, and didn't need to cook anything, but the kitchen is small and would have been difficult to cook anything there.
The whole booking process and communication with Francesco was excellent and he arranged the taxi to pick us up from the airport - our flight was delayed but all parties were in touch with each other and so it all went smoothly. The position of the apartment is superb as it is easy access to all areas of Barcelona - generally a 25 minute walk got you to the Ramblas/Barcenoleta/Sagrade Familiar. The apartment has everything that you need and is very comfortable. The neighbourhood is lovely with good amenities for self catering and a lovely breakfast cafe on the corner (Carlos - 10% discount arranged by our host!). We would thoroughly recommend it for anyone wanting to use it as a base to explore such a wonderful city.
It really does have a great view. The kitchen is small but workable. The patio is great. It's about a 29 min walk to the main tourist destinations or an 8 euro cab if you're in a hurry. Francesco was great about making our stay a nice one. Highly recommended.
A wonderful apartment with beautiful views, a great space and a very gracious host -- a perfect spot for a visit to Barcelona!
Excellent flat, nice area, lovely views of the whole city, central for Barcelona and Francesco was very helpful and knowledgeable, recommended.
