The Space

If you are looking for a chill out place, economic and with genuine artistic atmosphere, that reflect the alternative spirit of the city, this is the perfect place for you!

I´m an international designer living with my cat in an previous business shop transformed to a home/workshop (ground floor) where I design and manufacture one-off cloths.
But don´t worry! the workshop is in a separated area, far way from the room. my work won´t disturb you :-)

The Atelier is in a not car trafficked street between "El Palau de la musica" and Arco del Triunfo. Only 10 min walk to Plaza Cataluña, la Rambla and the Cathedral de Mar.

I offer you a double room on a mezzanine with sheets and towels and high speed wifi included on the price.

I speak 5 language and I will be happy to show you around the neighbourhood and advise you of main attractions at your arrival.

Hope to see you soon and help you to fall in love with Barcelona as I did my self some years ago!!!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • It was a fantastic trip to Barselona. Vanessa was a great host! And her cats insanely friendly and affectionate. The apartment is in a fantastic location close to the central Plaza Catalunya, the main attractions and even the beach. Near the house there are plenty of cozy cafes with cuisine that suit all tastes, as well as countless surprising number of grocery stores and cozy shops with all kinds of goods. The room is actually more spacious than in the pictures. Climbing stairs to the bedroom does not cause any difficulties. Every corner of this apartment is filled with the atmosphere of creativity. Kitchen is enough equipped to cook any not very sophisticated meals. There is even a small oven. Otherwise, the experience was lovely and we can highly recommend this place. Thanks Vanessa!

  • Vanessa nous a très bien reçu dans son logement qui est idéalement situé entre la place de Catalunya et l'arc de Triomphe. Il y a le métro à 5 min et le quartier est très sympa avec beaucoup de petits restaurants et de bars. Les chats sont également très accueillants et très câlins. Vanessa parle très bien français, ce qui est très agréable pour ceux qui ne parlent pas la langue du pays.

    Le logement est très bien décoré, un vrai atelier d'artiste. Néanmoins le quartier est très bruyant et le logement plutôt mal isolé. Si vous avez le sommeil léger, pensez à prendre de très bonnes boules quiès.

    De plus l'appartement n'est pas adapté aux personnes de plus de 1m80: la douche, l'escalier et la mezzanine sont un peu justes... Enfin, l'appartement est un peu sombre (contrairement aux photos).

  • Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful stay at Vanessa's apartment she was a great host! The apartment is in a fantastic location close to lots of cool bars and restaurants. The room is a good size with a cool spiral staircase up to the bedroom. The apartment had everything we needed as well as too very friendly cats. Vanessa was great at recommended places in the city and even took us to the best tapas restaurant in town on our final night! We can't recommend this place highly enough. Thanks Vanessa!

  • Vanessa is very kind, open and responsive person. Always ready to suggest the best places to stay. Her house is very colorful and fun, and it has everything you need for comfort e.g. lovely fluffy blanket. :)
    But most important - is its location in the center of Barcelona! It helped us fall in love with Barcelona. Thank you Vanessa. (Review from Russia, Siberia)

  • Vanessa is a lovely person and very delightful to chat with. She was a wonderful host and was very accommodating. Despite being on the mezzanine, the room was plenty private with enough space to move about. The apartment is very centrally located and is near two accessible metro lines as well as a lot of bars, restaurants and points of interest. The area is generally pretty quiet and safe. The only thing that may concern some people is that the mattress is rather thin (I have lower back problems so I think most people would be fine). Otherwise, the experience was lovely and my friend and I felt right at home. Definitely recommend!!

  • Great stay at this cozzy creative bubble in a great neighbourhood! Vanessa was so nice and welcoming and had lots of great tips for places to eat etc...Loved her 2 cats!

  • Having read all previous comments, we realized that Vanessa already had the reputation to be a great host and we weren't disappointed ;-) She is great company and inspiring to talk to. Her cats are playful characters, curious and soft.

    The place is very central (we didn't use the metro at all during our 7-day stay) but calm, lively but authentic. The neighborhood is definitely great with a lot to discover: restaurants, art galleries, bars, cafés, flee markets, narrow streets, .... Vanessa showed us around on the first day and always had some inspiring ideas about how to spend the day.

    Go for it if you want to have a relaxing and inspiring time, don't go for it if you have high class ambitions, don't like animals or weight more than 100 Kilograms (the shower is made for compact people ;) )

    Thanks to Vanessa for hosting us! We had a great time and would always book again.!

  • This is an awesome hideaway in the beautiful born neighborhood. Vanessa is such a living and welcoming host. She really made my time enjoyable while I was in Spain.

  • We had very good experience living in Vanessa's place. Vanessa is a great host. The first day she guided us all the neighborhood. Showed us where are the restaurant, bars, shops etc. Vanessa is very helping when we need help. I like her cats.

  • Aaju and I stayed with Vanessa for nearly a week. Vanessa was really sweet and it was lovely chatting with her about our cultures and countries, albeit for a short time. The room was quite comfortable and Vani has obviously put in a lot of time and effort to make it cosy. Thank you so much Vani!
