Heureusement que nous connaissions Wimdu avant car cette expérience sur Barcelone avec Felipe fut désastreuse... Tout d'abord nous avions réservé cet appartement au premier étage d'une résidence dans un très beau quartier, nous avons été pris très rapidement en charge par l'une des collaboratrices de Felipe( oui car il est gérant d'une agence de location). Arrivé dans l'appartement qui été censé avoir été récemment rénové, nous découvrons un appartement insalubre, avec la porte vitré de la salle de bain cassée, des néons totalement éventré, des meubles de cuisine vieux et rongé par l'humidité des lieux, des tâches de brulures de cigarettes sur le click clack et une odeur de renfermé. Lors du check-in, la collaboratrice de Felipé nous dit que des professionnels de l'extermination d'insectes étaient venus, car les anciens locataires s'étaient plaint des fourmis dans l'appartement. A notre GRANDE surprise, il ne s’agissait pas de fourmis mais de CAFARDS qui grouillaient encore partout dans l'appartement. Nous avons de suite appelé l'agence pour changer immédiatement d'appartement, la collaboratrice fut réactive et nous a relogé dans un autre appartement du MÊME immeuble au 4ème étage qui se trouve aussi sur Wimdu et que nous avions vu avant notre départ. Cet appartement au moins était SANS cafards mais la réalité ne reflétait pas du tout les photos mise sur le site... L'appartement qui lui aussi devait être rénové avait du l'être il y a 10 ans... Des traces de moustiques écrasés tapissés les murs, la moisissure avait envahi les meubles de salle de bain et rongeait les meubles de la cuisine, les radiateurs ne tenaient pas au mur et l'installation électrique était plus que douteuse, en plus la chasse d'eau n'arrêtait pas de fuir et se remplissait toute les 30min dans un vacarme énervant... Nous avons l'habitude de partir en voyage en Espagne et savons être beaucoup plus souple sur les règles du batiment, mais là l'appartement était insalubre et malgré les nombreux appels à l'agence de Felipe rien n'a été entrepris. Heureusement que les seuls moments passés dans l'appartement étaient pour y dormir et que nous passions la plupart de notre temps dans cette magnifique ville qu'est Barcelone.
Suite à tous ces problèmes, nous avons contacté l'équipe de Wimdu qui a pu arranger le problème une fois rentré en France et je tiens à les remercier pour cela. J’espère que Wimdu ne permettra plus de louer ces logements ou alors après vérifications d'une rénovation complète!!! Je ne conseille pas du tout cet hôte!!! il est le gérant d'un agence qui s'appelle lowcostbcn, les appartements sont effectivement low-cost mais le prix lui et loin d'y être ce qui est inadmissible.

Fortunately we knew before Wimdu because this experience was disastrous Barcelona with Felipe ... First we booked this apartment on the first floor of a building in a nice neighborhood, we were quickly taken over by an officer with Felipe (yes because it is the manager of a rental agency). Once in the apartment that was supposed to have been recently renovated, we find substandard apartment, with the glass door of the bathroom broken neon completely gutted, furniture, old kitchen and eaten by moisture places, tasks cigarette burns on the click clack and a musty smell. At check-in, the collaborator Felipé told that professionals extermination of insects came as former tenants complained about the ants were in the apartment. To our surprise, it was not ants but COCKROACHES still swarmed around the apartment. We immediately called the agency to immediately change apartment, the collaborator was responsive and we were relocated to another apartment building on the 4th floor EVEN which is also on Wimdu and we saw before we left. This apartment was at least WITHOUT cockroaches but reality does not reflect at all the pictures up on the site ... The apartment also had to be renovated was of being there 10 years ... Traces of mosquitoes crushed lined the walls, mold had invaded furniture bathroom furniture and gnawed the kitchen, radiators did not take the wall and electrical installation was more than doubtful, and more flushing could stop not leak and filled the whole 30min in an annoying noise ... We are used to traveling in Spain and know to be much more flexible about the rules of the building, but that the apartment was unsafe and despite numerous call the agency to Felipe nothing was done. Fortunately, the only moments were spent in the apartment to sleep and we spent most of our time in this beautiful city of Barcelona.
Following all these problems, we contacted the team Wimdu that could fix the problem once back in France and I want to thank them for that. I hope Wimdu will no longer rent such housing or checks then after a complete renovation !!! I would not recommend this at all host !!! He is the manager of an agency called lowcostbcn apartments are actually low-cost but the price he and far from being what is unacceptable.

We found the appartement clean, altough with cockroaches. The tube of the shower broke down twice but was repaired immediately after calling Everything was very poor, no luxery, no extra knifes or scissor, no wineglasses, only old smal bolted pans, no curtains, no theepot or coffeemachine. There were three very little new fryingpans.The oven did not work, the gas of one spiral of the cooking place did not work eather. The chair on the balcony was broken. The bedbank was to thin with spirals all over. My teener boys did not like it. No towels. A big fridge and a microwave did there work fine.
The place is perfect situated, allthough a lot of noise from the streets with open window, we had a nice week, nice weather, the space is fine, the shops and metro nearby. Our connnection person was realy kind and helped us with everything. Thanks for his help.

I did not get the apartment I rented, but it was in the same quartier "El Borne". The apartment was clean, in good condition and well equipped. The location is very central to all shops, bars, restaurants as well as museums.

For a good location close to the subway and close to attractions, must bear an apartment certainly good size but not very clean, in a dilapidated building, with an uncomfortable bedding, mattresses doubtful and cramped shower. Also provide the surety, not mentioned in the ad.

La location è perfetta per qualsiasi tipo di vacanza. Confortevole, centralissimo sia per raggiungere il centro storico (ci siete già) sia per raggiungere la spiaggia. Appartamento spazioso e accessoriato...che dire...? Andateci !!!!!

Cathedral, 2 bedroom 60m2 terrace ltn

La città di Barcellona è fantastica, peccato per l'appartamento in cui ci siamo trovati. Tolto il fatto che al contrario di quanto c'era stato detto, televisione e rete Wi-Fi non funzionavano (problema minore), l'appartamento cadeva letteralmente a pezzi. Intonaco che cadeva dai muri e parti della casa mezze distrutte e poco confortevoli. Ma la cosa peggiore è stata la sporcizia che al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato e, ciliegina sulla torta, le formiche che invadevano il bagno e le camere da letto!!!!! Il proprietario molto gentile e disponibile senza dubbio, ma l'appartamento, nonostante la sua posizione comoda e vicina al centro, lasciava molto a desiderare. Ci era stato presentato molto diversamente da come poi effettivamente l'abbiamo trovato. Il massimo comunque, era dover scavalcare la finestra del soggiorno (salendo oltretutto su una scala pericolante e in legno, che sembrava costruita da bear grylls nella foresta) per poter avere accesso alla terrazza, sporca anche quella, con vista sulla casa del vicino che stendeva i panni. Un esperienza che non consiglierei neanche al mio peggior nemico.

Sehr empfehlenswert: gebuchte Wohnung war belegt, als wir nach 3 Tagen schlechtem Ersatz in die Wohnung kamen, stank diese nach Marihuana, hatte kein Wifi, war voller Spermaflecken - aber der 5-tägige Aufenthalt war bislang - 2 Wochen danach - kostenfrei.

Central Born Flat With Balcony (pn4)

Ho trascorso 5 giorni a Barcellona ed è bellissima , vorrei poter dire lo stesso dell'appartamento , ma non era presentabile a un pubblico o almeno per quel prezzo , nel bagno ci sono molte cose arrugginite , si vede che non è curata, su internet mettono foto perfette ma non è così amici , non vi fidate, cercate di contrattare sul prezzo e di pagare all'arrivo , la casa non aveva neanche il wifi , e i fornelli della cucina ne funzionavano 2 su 4 uno non aveva neanche più il pulsante per accenderlo , per finire non ci consiglio questo appartamento
