Description

The space

The flat features the Catalan modernist architecture of XIX centenary, large window, mosaic tile floor, high roof, carved ceiling.

I live in this flat, I am just rented it while I am going on holidays. The flat is 70m2, I did not want to lose space so I put the minimum furniture, lots of white and pastel tones as well as flowers, I want to feel as a country side house into the city of Barcelona.
The balcony with its flower is big enough to accommodate 2 chairs and a table. It is perfect to enjoy a breakfast under the sun.
Even if there are lots of bars and restaurants in the area, the flat is located in a quiet street, I sleep with the window open, it is not noisy at all.

There are 1 bedroom and a sofa that becomes a double room in the leaving room.
The beds are equipped with new comfortable double beds, clean sheets and towels.
Furthermore the apartment has a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen, fridge, oven washing machine.
There is high speed internet in the all apartment.

The flat is very well located; just 10 minutes walk from the famous Gaudi buildings, La Pedrera and Casa Batllo. It is closed to Passeig de Gracia, the luxury shops street. You have wine bars, tapas restaurants, shops, clubs, and historic monuments at a walking distance.
The metro “Fontana” is only 1 minute walk.

If you need some advice about what to do, where to eat, where to go clubbing, it will be my pleasure to give you some local tips. I hope you will love my home.

I loved Matilde's place. She has turned everyday objects into works of art, this creative and inviting atmosphere is seen all over the flat from the wildlife artwork on the walls to the cool tiles under your feet and the amazing balcony over looking a quiet street in Gracia. This place would be perfect for a couple looking to explore Barcelona from a relaxing base central to Gracia and a short metro ride from the buzzing streets of central Barcelona

Mathilde's place is great. It has everything you need. I loved the little balcony with flowers and neighbors who play classical music each morning. It's very relaxing. I extended my stay and probably would never leave if I didn't have to!

Matilde's apartment is lovely and really well located, very close to the metro station and in a nice area full of shops. She was a great host, always available and helpful.

The apartment looks exactly like the photos, bright and airy, and located on a street in a quiet, residential neighbourhood. Just around the corner is a bustling non-touristic street with shops, pharmacies etc. A large food market is nearby, and Matilde left helpful suggestions for restaurants - perfect when you arrive from the airport! It's a nice stroll to the gothic quarter and around the rest of the city, and the metro is very close, for visiting outside Barcelona :)

We were meet by Mathilde's friend Sara who showed us around Mathilde's beautiful home. Mathilde had left suggestions of were to eat out which was very helpful because we arrived late. The description of the flat was spot on, I loved the flooring and the balcony area. The neighbourhood is very friendly and close to Metro for access to the whole city.

Mathilde’s place is close by the subway station, "Fontana". Around the area there are a lot of boutiques to shop around. If you need any groceries or refreshments for your stay, there is a supermarket across the street. In addition, there is a McDonald’s if you need to satisfy any midnight cravings. This is extremely convenient for all travelers and visitors alike. Onto to the place itself; One positive thing about Mathilde’s place was that it gave us a romantic and “Spain” feel of the city. However, there were several unpleasant experiences about her place. First off, I am unsure if Mathilde knows that there are ants roaming around in the bathroom and kitchen. Whenever we use the bathroom we always saw ants on the floor, bathtub, wall and the sink. Food could not be left outside on the bar table as ants could infest around the area. The shower was always faulty as it only dispenses cold or hot and never warm. It was so hard for us to shower because we had to switch the tub handle back and forth. We endured our stay for 5 days not because we didn't know how to use any of her appliances, but using them caused quite a headache! In addition, there is a door next to the bathroom that connects to the balcony which does not lock. Therefore, every time before sleeping, we would lock the kitchen door that's connected to the balcony and the bathroom for safety. As our first trip to Europe and to Barcelona, we did not expect any of this. In addition, WIFI was promised to renting the flat as part of the advertising on her AirBnB website. Before arriving, Mathilde informed us at the last minute that the WIFI was broken due to the last renter. We replied back to her saying that we needed the WIFI for our trip because we needed it to communicate with our family at home, as well as to check in for our flight for our next destination. Upon arrival, the WIFI was STILL broken! What made this worse were the countless efforts of trying to notify Mathilde. Every time we came across free WIFI (McDonalds, museums, etc.), we would email/AirBnB message her. However, she never once replied back until the very last night of our stay. Her excuse was “not being attentive to her computer” as she was also on vacation at the time. We found this very unacceptable. In the end, the WIFI was not provided AT ALL during our stay. One thing to note; we did not understand how the previous AirBnB renters gave her such remarkable reviews as I found this experience so bad. If she were more attentive to the renters as the owner of the flat, this place would have been much more enjoyable. This is our honest experience of Mathilde’s place that we wanted to share with you. Thank you for reading this.

Response from Matilde:
Hi Melony, I sorry to read your comment. I did answer your message 24 hours after your messaged me, sorry it was not that quick I was not on holidays as you wrongly guessed but working on a massive event. 24 hours is not 4 days. As mentioned before your arrival the ruter antenna broke with previous guests. It is now fixed but i had to order a new ruter and it was taking some time. None of the guests complain about water.
