Great stay in a very modern apartment. Had everything we needed to feel at home and the bed was really comfortable. A/C was nice, especially if you're coming during the summer months. The location might not be ideal if you're here as a tourist, but there are readily available taxis to take you where you want to go. All in, we'd stay here again!

My experience with Lorenzo and his company can only be described as awful. The apartment was as pictured, and our stay started out fine until the 3rd day of our 5 day stay, when I was painfully ELECTROCUTED in the shower by the metal handle. We called the management company, they were very rude and stated that it was "impossible" that it was electricity in the shower. Lorenzo then came to the apartment and was shocked himself when he touched the handle (only after taking off his rubber soled shoes). He shut off the electricity to the apartment, at which time the painful shocking no longer happened. Then, after speaking to someone at the company, he denied that this was caused by electricity and he has denied it ever since. Because we believed he was lying to avoid liability, we no longer wanted to stay with Lorenzo's company for the remaining two nights, and decided we would stay at a hotel. He offered us an apartment we had never seen, which was further away from town, for the last two nights. We declined, and he refused to refund us the payment for the two upcoming nights, which we had pre-paid on Airbnb. He accused us of "discriminating against the people of Spain", and tried every tactic to avoid refunding us for the nights we did not even stay in the apartment. We had to open a claim with Airbnb to finally get our money back. My advice: stay far away from Lorenzo and this company. Your stay could be fine, but if anything goes wrong they will reveal themselves as a rude, unreasonable and sleazy company.

Response from Lorenzo:
Dear Dana, Your evaluation needs a few comments, because there are always two points of view. Very briefly: - No one was rude. Perhaps it would be worthwhile also to assess your aptitude. On the other hand I have had the courtesy to not write any reviews on your attitude. - Indeed I repeat: there was no electricity in the shower (the pipes are in plastic ...). The facilities are new and, after extensive research, it has been found that the problem was caused from another apartment. Now it is fixed. I had other guests… any problems and very good comments. - Your life or health was never in danger. Everything is installed according to the High European safety standards. - Considering that there was a problem I offered you an alternative apartment. It was a new apartment that is having very positive comments, like all those I have on my profile. Unfortunately you decided unilaterally to leave without the courtesy to check the alternative. This can not be called “collaborative behaviour”. - I am an honest person, polite, cooperative and if there is a problem in an apartment (which can happen to anyone ... even at your home), I am the first to look for a solution or alternative for helping my guests. - I omit comments on what you said (offensively of europe, Spain and Spanish) - After 2 minutes ... Threatening to call your lawyer, make a legal case and to make sure to delete my profile from AirBnB ... can not be defined a collaborative behaviour. - Finding a solution requires a collaborative attitude (and will) from both side. From my side I always have been ready to find a solution and help you... with a common sense solution. Good luck for your next stay.

To some Airbnb-travellers this matters, so just to clarify. This is a fulltime rental-appartment (run by Home Around), so you are not renting a private home. But the appartment is very nice and welldecorated - exactly as described and shown on the pictures. It is not a big appartment, but we were two adults and two teenagegirls there for 3 days and it worked out fine. Lorenzo is the caretaker of the apartment and was very helpful. We changed our reservation from 3 to 4 persons in the last minute - so there were only towels and linnen for 3 people when we arrived. But not for long. Lorenzo fixed it in 10 minutes. After he left, the girls discovered that the wi-fi was down. Big issue for teenagegirls, so we called Lorenzo who fixed it immediately - and it worked fine throughout the stay. He also gave us good advice about restaurants in the neighbourhood (Bogatel and Poblenou). So all in all Lorenzo was a very good host and as attentive as a private Airbnb-host could have been. The neighbourhood is quiet and very local. The appartment faces out to a street with some car- and bus-traffic in the day-time, but you are not bothered by it at all in the appartment. There is a little supermarket just round the corner, but we found no notable restaurants in the immediate neighbourhood. But it is a very well placed appartment: The appartment is only a few hundred meters from metro-station Bogatel, so you can reach the city center in few minutes. Every day when we came back from sightseeing, we went for a swim in the afternoon on the very nice Bogatel and Marbella beaches, which is only 10 minutes walk (going east) from the appartment. There are restaurants on the beach, but you can also take a 10 minute walk up north from the appartment to the Rambla Poplenou. It is a pedestrian street with many good restaurants (and a large supermarket). Rambla Poplenou is mostly attended by local residents and not that many tourists (compared to other parts of Barcelona). In conclusion: We had a wonderful stay and will gladly stay in this appartment again next time we are in Barcelona.
