Stefania is an absolutely great hostess! She was very helpful and seems to know Barcelona backwards!
We were very comfortable and her place is clean and very Bohemian.
Breakfasts were plentiful and Stefania makes herself aware of your likes and dislikes.
The apartment is central and near to public transport systems, cafes, restaurants and bars.
Staying with Stefania was the best decision I've made. I was truly sad to have to leave her flat, she made me feel immediately welcome and I will absolutely be staying with her the next time I'm in Barcelona.
Excellent host! Great cook! Clean, bright room, super cozy atmosphere, historical place, very close to the Plaza Catalunya.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Once I got over the stairs on the first day to reach the flat everything was OK. The interior was different and really personalized to the kind of person Stefania is. She was helpful and very accommodating. The place was clean and well kept and yes it's in the heart of the town. Most things were walking distance from her home.. ..The Gothic quarter, La Rambla, the Cathedral, Casa Batill and Mila.
I enjoyed my visit and stay.
Ooh coming from and to the airport was easy access as well using the aerobus. Stefania recommended it.
NB if you are not to climb stairs or steps then it not advisable for this homestay. There is no other access to the flat....only by stairs. Bear that in mind.
If you can manage as I did then continue to book and enjoy your time there.
Un merveilleux séjour auprès d'une hôte extrêmement accueillante toujours prête à partager et à aider dans un appartement spacieux plein de cachet , je recommande chaleureusement !!!
Stefania is a great host, very helpful and kind. She has a great heart. The room was clean and spacious for the three of us. The flat breathes a nice artistic atmosphere, if you like authentic stay with her, if you like generic go to Ibis :-)
Séjour parfait chez Stéfania ,elle est au petit soins pour ses hotes ,et pleines de bons conseils,bonnes adresses,bon tuyaux , les petits déjeuners sont très bien et copieux ,Appartement Chaleureux
Stefania est tres gentille. Apartement est proche de tous.
Absolutely perfect place to stay for tourists due to very central situation close to Metro Placa Catalunya /Ramblas and terminal stop Aerobus (5 minutes by foot). Situated in a pedestrian zone with countless small shops and restaurants. Accommodation in an original, well-preserved late 19th century house and flat, as in topmost floor without lift provides quite well fitness training. Clean and comfortable bed and bathroom, fully sufficient breakfast for a perfect start into the day. Stefania is a down-to-earth and very spirited, kind and helpful person who can give you countless hints for your stay and additional useful and interesting information about Catalan history and politics. Really fascinating to talk with her! Listen to her good advice! She knows what she is talking about. And she is entirely honest and not in first line commercial. For us it was a benefit to meet her. Flat with very individual interior design, full of paintings, arts and antiques. Perfect for artists, individualists and nonconformists. Children also welcome! @Stefania: Special thanks for the fresh lily blossoms in our room, I love their smell so much! Also thanks for the hint concerning panoramic café in Corte Ingles mall, we had our final lunch there and is was superb!
