I was thinking about this review from the very first night of our stay in Barcelona. I can’t say we enjoyed our stay at Charlie’s place. Both Charlie and Nils are very nice and the check in went really smooth, we could accommodate straight after we got the city. It was cheap, the location is good but the conditions may surprise. First of all the flat was dirty. Both bathroom and kitchen didn’t seem to be cleaned for a really long time. We had clean sheets, but the floor in the room didn’t seem to be swept either. The toilet was clean but the flush was giving us hard times because it was just beside our bedroom and while somebody was flushing a toilet the noise was so loud that we could hear it 1:1 in our room. That was one of the reasons why had problems with sleeping at night, the other one was a bed: there was no way to spend a peaceful night in that bed. It was composed of 3 pieces from which two were thin mattresses and one was a hard wood covered with some fabric which in total was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever dealt with (and it is really not an exaggeration). It was a surprise because while I was making a reservation there was a different bed shown on a photo: a single, normal bed. To sum up: I think that Charlies place may have a potential to become a good Airbnb in the future but they should take better care of preparing their flat: clean it, change a bed and inform about the noise of a bathroom hearable in the room. The location is good, close to the beach, metro and buses, if you have time and strength it is also possible to walk to and from the city.
