Room was very clean and everything there what you need. We were recieved well and very friendly! Very nice stay, happy to visit Barcelona again!
We stayed at Monika & Gyan apartment as the last of other 4 places we stayed in Barcelona and to be honest...only this one left us with mixed feelings. At first, we're welcomed neither by Monica nor Gyan but by their friend who greeted us warmly, showed things around, explained the rules, etc. (we're given towels which was kind). The whole apartment was very clean. Sadly,we stayed for 2 days and Gyan didn't even say 'hello' even though we heard him he's at home...(it's Monika& Gyan profile, right?) As far as room is concerned, we're surprised how claustrophobic our room was. Both bed &wardrobe (with only 2 hangers...) leave little place for 2 people to move around (to be precise-none). There was no table to have a decent meal- in fact there was one in the living room you have no access to as a guest, hence you eat in your bed our outside the apartment as we eventually did. Our room was next to the entrace door which was kind of broken. In order to open them, you have to push it very hard, causing a lot of noise. That's why were woken up by people coming in&out. Additionally, what stroke me the most, is that you can't even make yourself a coffee in the morning since there's no kettle. I can (hardly but stilll..)understand that owners do not allow guests to cook but then why do not equip kitchen in at least a kettle? When I asked for one, I was told to make myself a coffee in the.....microwave -how ridiculous & rude. Summing up, if you're looking for a one-night room, it is acceptable. Unfortunately, we felt uncomfortable.
The place was in a great location and Monika and Gyan were very accommodating. I recommend it!
Io e il mio fidanzato siamo stati 5 giorni nell'alloggio di Monika e sommariamente ci siamo trovati molto bene. Nonostante la stanza da letto e il bagno molto piccoli, la tranquillità della casa, la gentilezza di Monika, la vicinanza a ogni tipo di servizio (metro, supermercato...) ci hanno soddisfatti appieno! Inoltre con meno di 10 minuti di camminata si arriva alla Sagrada Familia (bellissima anche di notte)!! Consigliamo questo alloggio perché è centrale e ben collegato!
Pros: location and price
Cons: room is tiny and super hot. We actually had to get a small fan to cool the room. The wifi is very weak in the room that we stayed in. Gyan Carlos told me that the problem was my phone but I explained to him that my phone is able to pick up a stronger internet signal when I get closer to the other end of the apartment. He argued stating that regard less its still my phone. He then provided me with a router so we can get a better signal. After that no problem with the Internet.
Не знаю на сколько надо себя не любить чтобы писать что это комната класс, как здесь написано ниже. Это комната на столько мала, там только переночевать на ночь максимум. Соседей напротив в доме слышно даже через закрытое окно, постоянно плачет ребенок до 2 часов ночи. Но самое ужасное это пипец как жарко, просто сауна и открытое окно не спасает. И это 30 евро сутки?
First, the good part. The host was really nice and polite. The apartment is clean and incredibly well located.
For the bad part, we found the room a little bit claustrophobic with poor illumination. It was ridiculously hot those days and we could have surely used a fan, but there wasn't any. Also, behind the (very small) window there were trash bags.
I know it was super cheap for the location - and for that I do still recommend the place, but it could have been a much better experience with just a little effort from the owners.

About the Host, Monika&Gyan Carlo
We are a young international family with our daughter and I think we are very happy and funny people, we like to go out, go to the cinema, meet with friends or just go to the beach. We like to listen the music and play and chat together. We knew so many people here in Barcelona and we have a very good experience to share our flat with other people and for this we have tought that it could be a good idea to registrer to Airbnb.
