Never actually met Monique or Igor, although I didn't spend much time in the apartment. Was let in by their cousin Natalie who was very nice and accommodating. Inside the apartment was fine overall. My only complaint was that it was a little warm without any AC. Full kitchen with fridge and stove was available for use, as well as a living room with a TV. Location was great though, and the apartment is a great option for people looking to save some money and plan to spend most their time exploring the city.
When we first arrived her cousin let us in and showed us around the apartment. The apartment is converted into a property to rent out rooms, so when we stayed there all the rooms where rented out (6 rooms in total). The pictures of the room are slightly misleading because the room doesn't look half as good as it does in the pictures.
We arrived late and since we hadn't eaten yet we just dropped our stuff in the room and went to a restaurant first to eat. When we got back and wanted to go to sleep we realized that the sheets where really dirty and there was multiple stains on the sheets and pillow cases.. We tried knocking upstairs on the door where Monique her cousin was staying but after multiple attempts we got no response. We decided to just put tshirts over our pillows and sleep like that the first night..
Second day we inspected more of the apartment and realized that a lot of things where pretty dirty, stuff like the bin not being emptied and rubbish pretty much falling out because it was to full. The bathrooms have some black mold forming at the top corners, we had a desk chair in our room that was full of stains and to dirty to even sit on our put anything ontop of and if you would walk around without shoes your feed would be black at the bottom..
We tried knocking again for Moniques cousin at the second and third day staying there and we didn't get any response what so ever. One time while knocking we clearly heard voices inside but no one bothered opening the door.
On our 4th night Moniques cousin was showing new people that where staying at the apartment around so I kindly asked her if I could have a word with her ones she was done showing her around. I noticed a strong smell of marijuana when she came near me and she clearly looked intoxicated.. She didn't look happy but said sure. After showing the people around I explained her that our sheets where dirty, she then asked me to show her and she said that she put on new sheets so that they cant be dirty. I showed her the stains and she got pretty annoyed and in my opinion rude and said we should have told her earlier and that she will get new sheets. I tried explaining how we constantly knocked for her but she didn't seem to want to understand. I also asked for clean towels after 4 days which she didn't seem to appreciate either.
The remaining time of the week the apartment did seem to be kept cleaner and the bin did get cleaned regularly. After getting clean sheets the stay felt better. The other people staying there where all really nice and we got on well with them.

Todo muy correcto. Ubicación excelente, relación calidad-precio fantástica, trato muy correcto. Personalmente he estado muy agusto. Totalmente recomendable para viajes cortos de trabajo o de turismo.
The room was as described I never met Monique or Igor, not sure if they exist. It seems a lot of apartments have been turned into airbnbs for investments not really staying in someone's home, which is ok if you know that's what's up. At Monique and Igor's I got a lock for the room which is good. The upstairs neighbor let me in and gave me the key, she was helpful and accommodating.
Really enjoyed my stay at Monique & Igor's apt. 2 mins from the subway, cool tapas bar / restaurant called tickets 1 min walk at the end of the street. 5 mins to the redeveloped bullring / which is now a state of the art shopping centre with all the latest shops and cool restaurants. Sans high street is next to plaza Espsanya and has some really cool shops, one which sells all the top brand name aftershaves & perfumes without the label @ a fraction of the high street price. The other guys in the apt were cool, Natalie was a cool host provided the info for the wifi, the room was visibly appealing on the eye & was able to watch Barca TV in the living room. Met guys & girls from traveling from
Brazil, France, Germany, Russia & Slovakia. Even learned about Novak Djokovic's gluten free diet & the Paleo Diet. 10/10 great place to stay!
Everything was as expected, allowed me to check in early and drop my bag off, all around great experience.
