Far from the noise and high prices of most touristic zones, at Sant Andreu neighbourhood you will find the authentique Barcelona. At same time, the loft is very well communicated, at just 12 minutes by metro to Las Ramblas and the very center.
At 85m² this apartment has everything needed to enjoy a visit to Barcelona. The kitchen, bathroom and living areas are fully equipped and the two private terraces offer plenty of sunlight all day long.
We are Hamid and Montse, the hosts. We live just downstairs and are opened to offer you any help or information that you need about the city, markets, etc.
If you come to Barcelona by car we offer private parking for 10 euro/night.
We had a lovely stay in Montse's place. It is in Sant Andreu which is a more quiet and calm neighborhood away from the busy center. It's a very nice place to come back to at the end of the day, as well as just spend time in. You really feel like you are a part of local life. It's definitely not touristy. There are also a ton of shops and restaurants and cafes all around - Sant Andreu was definitely one of our favorite parts of Barcelona.
The apartment itself was very nice as well. There are two balconies, one is a huge terrace overflowing with flowers and greenery - really magical. There is also a small kitchen, but it's nice - with a great view - to make some things in (small fridge, stovetop, microwave, no oven). The bed is comfortable as well. The metro is only about a 10 minute walk, and it takes about 30-40 mins to get to most sights. It's an easy ride though!
One thing to note - there is no door to the living room. When you walk in the house you walk up the stairs - on the first floor lives Montse and her husband (they have a closed door), then you keep going to the second floor and at the top of the stairs is the living room (no door there), however there is a big door that locks the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. It wasn't a big deal to us, we just thought it was important to note. Also the tub itself in the shower is shaped a bit oddly so if you are tall it can feel a bit tight in there.
Montse was very nice, and we had a great time at her place. We definitely recommend staying there.
We had a very nice stay at Montse's appartment. We have been welcomed by her husband who speaks french. The neighbourhood is very nice, very typical - no tourists and closely related to the touristic areas. We used their parking place which is very useful. We hope to come back some times to enjoy the great terrace ! Highly recommended !
Encontramos en casa de Montse justo lo que necesitábamos, tranquilidad y sosiego, no faltaba ningún detalle y la casa está perfectamente situada en una pacifica zona peatonal sin ruidos de coches pero a sólo una calle de Gran de Sant Andreu donde se pueden encontrar todo tipo de tiendas de calidad excelente. Recomiendo este lugar a todo el que no necesite estar en el centro de Barcelona.
Nuestra estancia ha estado fenomenal, la anfitriona muy bien y la independencia es total, lo que te permite una gran libertad
El apartamento muy bonito y muy bien equipado
My boyfriend and me loved that place. It is a little bit out of town, but we had metro tickets for the period we stayed in Barcelona and it took us 10 minutes to the city centre :)
Sant andreu is a nice place. Everything you need is in the neighborhood (supermarket, bakery, restaurants). We stayed during New Year's Eve and enjoyed the noisy city centre and the quite, relaxed place we were living.
Everything we needed is in the apartment! Montse is really nice and lives in the same house.
If we come back to visit our friends in Barcelona we would definitely book again the nice and cozy place of montse :)
We had a really nice stay at Montse's loft! It was clean, cosy and in good condition and Montse was a very helpful and attentive host!
Soy de Barcelona, soy periodista en TVE, soy curiosa y me gusta conocer gente nueva. También me gusta la decoración y la restauración de muebles, así que es un gusto invertir tiempo en amueblar el loft, pintarlo, añadirle piezas recuperadas, etc
