First, the biggest positive - the location! Valerie's place is in an amazing area and there is so much around. If you want to be in the center of Barcelona, this is the place to be. Also, the place was nice and spacious and fitted our two families well. There were a few issues though. Firstly, we had issues with having enough paper towels, bath towels and shower gel (we barely had any gel to begin with) - so the essentials. I would think those are essentials and there should be spares of these stocked somewhere. Secondly, it was hard to reach Valerie - many times replies took hours especially for things that I felt were important like replenishing the supplies. Thirdly, we had our light go out in one of the bathrooms and for 5-star service, I would expect somebody to show up and replace the light for us ASAP. But that didn't happen - we basically had to have some showers without lights.
Overall we had a great stay & Valeria was a great host. She was easy to contact to arrange check in & check out. There was plenty of room for our group of 6 (three couples). The only small issue we had was little to no hot water for showers. We enjoyed having the windows open while we were there but the street was pretty loud. We also appreciated the ceiling fans in each bedroom.
Valeria's apartment is great! It's in a very convenient location - right near Plaza Espana and restaurants/bars are a short walk away. And there was lots of space - we had a large group (including two small children) and everyone was able to feel comfortable. Valeria and her co-host Lilian were also flexible with our check-in time which I really appreciated, as many in our group had just flown into Barcelona from the U.S.
