I stayed here for four nights whilst over for Mobile World Congress. Compared to where my colleagues were staying I think Monica's flat represented great value for money and an ideal location. Getting to the big conference centre by Metro was very easy (once I located the short-cut to Urquinaona station) and I was well located in the evenings. The flat was quiet, although in the day there was extensive work being carried out to the building fabric. As has been mentioned before you are three flights up a spiral staircase - not a problem for me, just as an FYI. I also had some issues operating the heater but I think this was more human error. The only thing I would look to improve would be darker blinds or curtains for privacy.
Monica is the very nice people, it was pleasure to meet her :).
Apartment is very nice and comfortable, close to the center of the city.
Cosy, fancy and clean flat in the best place of Barcelona!
Monica is very nice and she helped us a lot!
She told us the best places to eat and to visit.
Monica is the friendliest of all hosts!
She cancelled her English lesson to accommodate my timing and come earlier at her flat and check me in.
The flat is super nice and full of personality.
So many thanks to Monica for being such a perfect host! Though just a brief stay, she was amazing w/ her communication, flexibility around my arrival, and attention to detail!!! The location & space were exactly what I needed :) I couldn't have asked for more!! I highly recommend to anyone visiting this lovely city!
My husband, myself and my 13 year old daughter came from Australia to stay in Monica's loft apartment for 3 weeks in Barcelona, one of our favourite cities in the world over Christmas and NY 2013-2014. The apartment is in a perfect location, central to everything. It is the most authentic way of staying in a city that comes alive with people and culture. The apartment is exactly as Monica describes, we managed pretty well for three people in a small space!. She is very generous leaving some things that are useful for a stay such as condiments.
Monica is the most wonderful host. She greeted us early in the morning with enthusiasm. She is thoughtful, kind, warm with a lovely spirit. She gave us some great tips about what to do and where to go, and was very gracious when we arrived late (2 days) because of my daughter's illness in transit.
The place is amazing. Considering we were living in close proximity to so many people it was a wonderful mixture of community and residential. It was a joy to walk out the door in the morning and walk past Palau de la Música Catalana!!!
We stayed almost THREE WEEKS. That's a long time for 3 people in a loft, but it is designed well so even though we're used to alot of space it worked well. And Barcelona is a place for walking and enjoying the Catalan culture, not sitting around in an apartment!
I would definitely recommend Monica's apartment to everyone (3 people or less). The stairs were an adventure and make for good fitness. Thank you Monica, will definitely be back , much love Australia xx
Monica's place was an excellent place to stay in Barcelona. It's in the city center and affordable for the size of the unit. I highly recommend staying at her place!
monica was a great host. she met us upon arrival and was very helpful with suggestions for activities and attractions during our stay. the apartment is well located and has everything required. a great base for exploring the city. many thanks!
Monicas loft was perfect for our quick stay in Barcelona. The only reason it wasnt five stars for us was the stairs. We couldnt figure out how to turn the heater on but once we did the loft warmed up quickly.
walking distance to the Gaudi Cathedral and the Ramblas...we highly recommend using Monica's place when staying in Barcelona
This is an amazing loft in the center of Barcelona. I truly recommend staying here vs. a hotel!
