You can use the kitchen, but you have to wash your dishes and what you dirty for cooking. Your room must be tidy. Do not leave food, or dirty dishes or glasses in your room or in the common places of the house. Leave the sink as you find it after using it. The light is very expensive in Barcelona, try to turn it off when you're not in that room.
Smoking is not allowed.
Patricia is so lovely and welcoming. I’m delighted to have had the chance to meet her. Thank you Patricia!
I had a really comfortable stay - Patricia and her daughter are wonderful sweet people.
Patricia did her best at all time to make me feel comfortable not letting me miss anything and was always ready to answer any questions.
The area is nice - next to the Arc de Triunfo and you can easily walk to Placa Cataluna and then Rambla. Supermarkets, Cafés and restaurants and buses, metro and train are all very close to the flat.
I would definitely like to come again.
Thank you Patricia. It was nice to meet you and Carla. Thank you for the meal and cake. I enjoyed it.
Very close to everything - was able to walk everywhere.
La mejor!!! She was very kind and an amazing host. The location is perfect. Although small, she kept the place very clean! Muchas Gracias Patricia! Se lo agradezco muchisimo!
I will forever be in debt to Patricia and her daughter. They hosted me for 3 months. Love, love, love them.
Ha sido un placer compartir unos dias con patricia y su hija. Encantadoras las dos!
L'accueil chez Patricia a été très chaleureux. Son appartement est situé dans le Born, un quartier ancien très pittoresque, proche de la plage, du centre ville, du port, bref idéalement situé. Patricia se met en quatre pour faciliter le séjour, mettre à disposition tout le nécessaire pour que l'on se sente comme à la maison. Cerise sur le gâteau, sa fille m'a appris quelques mots de catalan !
Patricia was a very accommodating and lovely person. Her place is adequate for simple needs... For travellers on a tight budget I would highly recommend...
Well to begin I arrived at 3 am from a delayed flight and Patricia was patiently waiting. I spent six nights and was comfortable as Patricia did everything to make me feel at home. One morning she even prepared freshly squeezed orange juice and made a fabulous fruit basket with all sorts of fruits. Patricia went out with me one day and showed me the hidden secrets of Barcelona. I am appreciative of her taking time out to show me around. She also loaned me money when I was short and the banks were closed. Below please see list of pros and cons.
1. Great central location, .two minutes walk from Arc Triomp, five minutes from museum of music, 10 minutes from Place Catalunya.
2. Patricia is a fun-loving, hospitable host who invites you to access all facilities.
3. Great price.
4. Speaks English.
1. Bed is really a small cot and extremely uncomfortable.
2. Place is not kept tidy.
3. Above a night club so there are loud noises until morning.
All in all I enjoyed my stay at Patricia's and although the accommodations are not the best her hospitality made up for the inadequacies. I would definitely stay there again. She is a trying single mom and I was happy to have been able to help.
Patricia was a lovely host and made me feel very welcome. She was easy going and I had plenty of privacy when needed.
She is a very sociable lady with a lovely 7 year old daughter, and Patricia speaks very good English.
She is happy for you to use all the facilities such as washing machine, shower and kitchen appliances. The flat is just a short walk to the Arc De Triomf with many local areas to walk and explore.
I would highly recommend her.
