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.
This appartment is a great place if you want to stay in Barcelona! We had a good time there and had everything we needed! The flat is lovely and in the center of the barrio gothic. We would recommend your place to other people. Thank you so much monica!
On a passé 10 jours dans l'appartement de Monica. Tout c'est merveilleusement bien passé. Monica nous a attendu à l'appartement le jour de l'arrivé , et nous a donné de très bons conseils.
Le duplex/souplex est très charment , correspond parfaitement aux photos.
Le duplex est tres bine situé , juste à côté de La Rambla.
L'appartement ainsi que la cuisine est très bien équipé.
Barcelone est magnifique.
Merci Monica pour ton accueil.
Monica was fantastic! She met at us the duplex upon arrival and provided us with maps, restaurant suggestions, a small tour of the apt, and even had a bottle of water waiting for us in the fridge.
We had a mishap with our first taxi drop off and we called Monica, who spoke on the second taxi, getting us where we needed to go. She couldn't possibly have been a better host. The WiFi went out and she beat us to it, calling immediately and coming to fix the issue.
As for the apartment, it was in a great location for a tourist in Barcelona. It was not but 3-4 min walk from Las Ramblas. A market was not too far away, and there were great restaurants and nightlife options in every direction. Bed was. O for table, a/c was fantastic! Felt so great to come back to the duplex after a hot, sweaty day of touring Barcelona.
The apartment was perfect for 2 guests. We had four people staying by the end of the trip and it was slightly cramped but Monica had warned us of this and we were aware. So 4 guests is doable, but 2 is perfect!
Monica made the entire process so easy from beginning to end. Her place is in the perfect location with easy access to almost everything whether on foot or metro. The home is comfortable and perfect for what we needed. Would definitely stay here again!
This little apartment was perfect for our Barcelona trip! Was close to everything we wanted and Monica was really helpful and super friendly! Would recommend this property to all couples!
Stayed 3 nights in Monica's apartment and absolutely loved it! Located in a great part of the city and close to everything you could possibly need! Monica provides a really great overview of the city, points of interest and restaurant recommendations - definitely go to her top pick for tapas, you won't be disappointed! Would definitely stay here again.

About the Host, Monica
I'm French Canadian from Montreal! Studied and worked in Manhattan as an interior designer 8 years before moving to Barcelona in 2004 and making it my home. Being in Europe makes it easy to travel which is great! These days i keep busy on design projects, family fun and having tapas with friends!! Loving it!
