Interaction with Guests
I try to meet with guests personally at check in and do everything i can to accommodate! From making reservations to suggesting places to eat and go out. We have been known to take our guests sailing, out for drinks or inviting them to parties. Of course now as we have small children there is not as much partying anymore :) We can still point you in the right direction.
The duplex is super central, 50 meters from Las Ramblas. The Boqueria market is close by! The beach and Port is a 10 min walk away. You can basically walk to most of your favorite spots!
The duplex is perfect for guests who want to be located in walking distance from everything and this is where the action is!
The metros Liceu and Drassanes are close by 50 meters away located on Las Ramblas! And there are the popular tour buses located walking distance in Placa Catalunya!
Other Things to Note
All fresh linens and towels are included. And the kitchen is full equipped!
There is also a telephone (landline) included for the convenience of our guests. And WIFI of course!
Upon reservation we will email you check-in procedure and best way to get to the duplex.
We ask our guests to please call us upon arrival at Barcelona airport and we will meet you at the flat for check-in.
Inside the duplex you will find directions regarding trash disposal, internet use, a telephone (landline), suggestions on restaurants and day trips as well as and our home number which you can call direct from the duplex for special inquiries.
Check in normally takes place between 13h30 and 21h00 but if your flight arrive early in the morning send me a note and perhaps we can arrange an earlier check in or at least store your luggage while the flat is being cleaned.
Check out is normally before 11h00. If you would like to check out later than 11am please email me (Monica the owner) and if we do not have guests checking in the day of your departure we will be happy to accommodate a late check out.
For all check ins after 22:00 there is an extra 20€ extra charge payable to the person in charge of your check in.
I am happy to assist you with any inquiries about the city or culture.
Everything about this reservation went very smoothly. Monica always responded to emails quickly. Her directions to the place were perfect. The place is in a very central, convenient location. You can walk everywhere from her place. Her description of her place was perfect. It is so charming and has everything you need. The bed was so comfortable and the AC works great. The shower is is new and modern. This was our first experience with Airbnb and we will definitely do it again. Thanks for making it so easy Monica!
Appartement sombre et très bruyant situé au rez avec beaucoup de passage de jour comme de nuit et pas de porte entre la chambre et la porte. Sinon propre et joli, situé près du metro.
Un peu cher pour ce que c'est finalement.. hôte n'étant pas là,accueillis par Tarrah.
Monica was extremely nice and gave us great tips to explore the authentic Barcelona instead of exploring all the tourist attractions. We had a nice talk and felt welcome.
If it is not an issue that the apartment is at the ground level, I can recommend the apartment. It was clean and nice, and had heater/cooler both upstairs and downstairs. The location is superb!
Monica war sehr nett und freundlich, Sie hat uns schon vorab während des Mailverkehrs viele Tipps gegeben, was wir besichtigen können, bzw. wo wir kulinarisch gut aufgehoben sind!
Die Wohnung ist in der Altstadt zentral gelegen und sehr gemütlich,
jedoch würde ich sie Personen die Ruhe suchen eher nicht empfehlen,
da die Wohnung zentral in der Altstadt liegt, wie sich viele Lokale und Bars befinden, die Leute hier meist bis 2, 3 Uhr morgens unterwegs sind, und da es dadurch etwas lauter ist!
Monica is a very nice host and provided us with great information on restaurants etc. The location of the apartment is very central and everything can be reached by foot. We were very happy with our stay at Monica's place.
Monicas well fitted apartment is well situated just off the Ramblas. I was a bit concerned that it may be rather noisy but except for the first night, we couldnt have wished for a quieter location. Even then, the "noise" was nothing more than the buzz of passing pedestrian traffic and although I am a VERY light sleeper, I had no problem getting my night's rest.
Monica's restaurant suggestions are excellent and we had a fantastic evening at Los Caracoles just around the corner.
Thanks for a wonderful stay Monica.
