Arola was so kind and was very easy to communicate with. Her flat is in a wonderful location that is very easy to get to with many amenities near by. She provides a very generous breakfast and the room feels very luxurious. I was extremely comfortable and wish that I had known more Spanish or Catalan and had more time to get to know Arola. I would very highly recommend this place as a place to stay, and maybe even hope that I get to return.
The host is very friendly, responsive, helping on transportation and restaurant reservations. The size of the bed in the bedroom is King size, with big closet, there is ample space for make up and showering as well, quite comfortable for two persons. The neighborhood is quiet in the night time, and convenient with subway station, many restaurants, stores. Highly recommended!
