  • My boyfriend and me, we were staying at Mathieu's place when we were staying in Barcelona for 24 hours. Mathieu welcomed us in a very friendly and polite way. He provided us with a classy room that had everything what one could wish for and also gave proof of the fact that Mathieu is a man of taste. The next day, Mathieu took his time to sit with us and so we had the opportunity to learn about his home country, something I personally enjoyed very much. All in all, we had a wonderful time at Mathieu's place and would always come back. Very much reccommandable!

  • Amazing location, stunning apartment especially for those who appreciate classic furnishings and stylish surroundings. Mathieu was very accommodating on arrival, giving us great recommendations of where to go out and visit in Barcelona. The apartment is shady, keeping it mostly cool although we got a little hot at night which was to be expected visiting in August. There is a fan in the room which was a big help. The cats are very friendly and well domesticated. If you catch them at the right time you can watch them eat together, although they will not bother you if you're not a feline lover (they're not allowed in the bedrooms). The room is private, quite big, stylishly decorated with an en suite shower and sink. The room also has access to the apartments internal courtyard. The shared toilet is located down the hall next to the other rented room so it's courteous to be quiet during the night!

    Located in the Gothic quarter, we were right next to Las Ramblas, La Boquera, the cathedral and the series of beautiful nooks and crannies that define the area. Placa Catalunya is 10 mins walk (for airport transport links) and the Jaume 1 Metro stop is 5 mins away which can take you anywhere in the city.The beach is a 20 minute walk or short subway ride.

    Overall the apartment is friendly and mellow and the perfect respite from the bustle of the streets below. Good for couples and single travellers alike.

    Great hosts, we would definitely stay again. :)

  • Mathieu was very responsive to my queries prior to arriving and was a very gracious host. He also gave us recommendations for places to eat and visit. The space was beautiful- exactly like the photos! I later learned that he has studied interior design. The location was also very central- perfect for our needs.

  • From the first moment I stepped foot in this apartment, I knew I'd found the perfect place to stay- it really is unique, and full of the most wonderful furniture, objects, and artworks- all of which make for a beautiful setting. I stayed in two different rooms over the course of my stay- the first, a sweet single room with a really comfortable bright yellow bed; and the second, a beautiful double room with ensuite bathroom and a private terrace. I slept so well in both, and felt really at home. He also has three adorable cats!

    Mathieu is an extremely warm and generous host, who makes you feel very at ease. I enjoyed so many conversations with him about where I'd been and what I'd seen; he is a very genuine person. He also really knows and loves the city, so only recommends the most special places to visit. I particularly loved Bubo, where I enjoyed the most delicious cake for my birthday- thank you Mathieu!

  • Mathieu was acoomodating and the flat is accurately represented in the pictures. The location is perfect for exploring the Barri Gotic and Ramblas- right in the middle of all the action AND still very quiet in our room. Location was priority for us when choosing a place, and we were thrilled.

    I wanted to mention was how accomodating Mathieu was when we arrived. My husband is 6'6" and did not fit on the bed- it had a footboard that made it too short for him, and the bed seemed like it was going to buckle when we were on there together Mathieu just happened to have a spare bed that we moved into the room.

    There were a few things we really would have liked to have known before arrival, that we didn't notice in the pictures, so I think it is only fair to let the future guest know. A few of which would be easily updated by the owner (shower curtain, pillows, wardrobe notification)....

    1. There is a bathtub with shower wand connected to the room, but it has no shower curtain which we found extremely inconvenient. We weren't a fan of taking a bath in the tub, so we wen't without showers the entire time. The shower room also had a strong musty smell which would stink up the room if you didn't close the door.

    2. The toilet was not connected to our room (we knew we'd be sharing) but that mean we had to get up in the night and leave the room to use the toilet.

    3. A rule we found invonvenient was that we were supposed to keep our door closed at all times because the "cats weren't allowed in our room" so that left for little air circulation, which would be a real problem on a hot day since there is no AC. The apartment does smell like cats, and if you are allergic or don't like cats, then don't stay here. It also made us nervous the one time the cat snuck in behind me and had to catch him to get him out.

    4.Beware of the red wardrobe- I opened the right door to hang my clothes and the door fell off, a problem we would have appreciated being alterted to when checking in. This made me feel uncomfortable as I thought I had broken this unique peice of furniture, but after closer inspection it was clearly broken before we arrived.

    5. Call us spoiled (we were on our honeymoon...) but we only had 2 pillows total, and we would have slept much better with 1 or 2 extra pillows.

    Unfortunately we decided to depart a day early and stay in a hotel on our last night becuase we wanted to have showers and a good sleep before going home. The location was perfect and that is what we were going for, but we learned our lesson to take a closer look at the details before booking next time.

    Response from Mathieu:

    i dont rent rooms with orthopedic beds , the beds are 150 cm/ 200cm .
    no curtain in bathroom cause it is not hygienic and you can see it in the pictures!!!
    the cats are not allowed in rooms for a good reason .
    and the toilet is just outside the rooms .

  • I was a new member to Air BnB travelling last minute around europe. Happy Room 2 was the first place i came across in Barcelona . Instantly i feel in Love with this Vintage style spanish apartment and friends had recommended i stay in the Gothic area. My booking was seamless as Mathieu was fast to respond. On my arrival Mathieu showed me around . I feel in love with his 200 year old apartment not to mention his collection of furniture which has been a hobby forever . The original marble bath which seem to be very popular with the guests also added to my barcelona trip . My friend staying with me had missed her flight to Australia seems the 24hour clock was a little confusing. Mathieu spent hours with us helping with our solutions.
    As a private chef it was only natural to host a dinner party and the space was a home away.
    Mathieu is a very unique soul, people like that are very rare these .I hope our paths will meet again one of these days
