Oh, up until this moment I could not stop telling people how nice it is to travel through Airbnb!
This summer we had a very promising trip – it started beautifully! – which almost turned to a complete disaster, when we planned to stay in Barcelona for the last 3 days of our vacation. The reason? – A bad choice of a flat and dealing with people, who only started to rent their flat (…to humans?) via Airbnb with absolutely no idea how to basically prepare flat for guests. (Cleaning? – Nope! Correct time of arrival? – Nope. Correct description of the flat? – Certainly – NOT! Etc., etc…)
Unlike previous flats, the last one in Barcelona was supposed to be a private “Lovely, sunny apartment in Sants”.
See some pictures of this “lovely” appartment yourself… Fortunately we understood to take at least some pictures.
1. The dining room was really spartan.
It is spartan, indeed.
Spartan dining room
I almost liked the DIY pallet table, but … that terrible plastic cover… The worst part here? It is a really dirty table!
Nothing really bad here, except… We had holes in bed linen…
Holes in bed linen…
And holes in the walls… And some nails protruding from the walls…
“Lovely, sunny apartment in Sants” – do you feel it?
To cheer you up, here is a small cheerfull chest in the corner. It’s old, its upper drawer handle is broken – but you have to cheer up somehow!
Maybe, new paint and some work enhance this apartment?..
3. Small room…
A small room stuffed full with two old and nasty sofas…
You would not notice from the picture, but the sofa on the right was not … pleasant (or safe?) to sit on, – it looked really nasty and dirty. I would not say that it was pleasant to sit on another sofa though 8(
But I could be picky here. The room had a “view” (that is how it was presented to us – “THE VIEW”).
