There are no rules too special, respect, cleanliness, communication and the main thing to be happy!
The place was really pleasant and well decorated. Miguel's flat is perfectly located next to Arc de Triomf metro station and not far from Paseig de gracia, Universitat, Catalunya and Urquinaona. This proved very convenient for shops, visits and the beach. Miguel himself is a nice and helpful gentleman, with friendly and polite manners.
Miguel's apartment is perfect for a single person or couple traveling in Barcelona. The place is clean and unique, with great art and furniture as well! The location is an easy walk to el gotico and the park... just far enough from each to be quiet. We stayed with Miguel while attending Sonar 2012, and had an easy time coming and going at all hours of the day and night.
Miguel was really nice. Just before we arrived, he phoned us to make sure we found the place. Once we arrived home, we felt just like that, home!
We moved around as if the house was our own place. We chatted with him when we and he were at home, or had a coffee together, and then each one continued with their plans.
We definitely will stay at his place when we go back to Barcelona.
Regarding the location, it was perfect: a stone's throw away from El Borne, Paseo de Gracia, Barceloneta, ...
Staying at Miguel's apartment inspired me throughout the period of my stay. His apartment is charming, creative, well-decorated with very unique character of Miguel's passion for fine art, creative works, and interior design. It's the perfect place and very convenient location to stay with friendly atmosphere and very warm welcoming from Miguel and his gracious friend Mauricio (Pupi). I loved staying at this place and being around creative people, having sharing our talks, personal conversation, dinners, laughter and joys with Miguel and his flatmate was one of my most favourite time spending in Barcelona. Miguel and Pupi have been very kind and I'm glad we have become good companies and good friends with each other after 2 months staying at his place.
If you're looking for some creative, unique and special characteristic vibes to spend with local host and enjoy good laughter and want to explore in one of the most beautiful and relaxing areas of Barcelone, which is Arc de Triomf and Ciutadella Park and the Zoo, this is one of the host and place you shouldn't missed!
We loved staying at Miguel's apartment! It's centrally located, the apartment is clean and has great decor (the best vintage wallpaper!). We didn't see Miguel too often and he made us feel very free to make ourselves comfortable in the apartment. When we did see Miguel he was incredibly nice and gave us the best recommendations for things to do. This was our first airB&B experience and it was such a great experience I'm sure we will do it again. Thanks Miguel!
Miguel is a terrific host: just the right amount of conversation, of orientation, of freedom to just be in his place. I am lucky to have crossed paths with this design superstar, who even invited me to a design networking holiday party among his friends during my time in Barcelona! What's more, he and I enjoyed a meal together one night... I am delighted by Miguel, by his accommodating nature, and by his generosity.
I've been in Barcellona for about 5 weeks, Miguel's house is really nice located in a strategic position close to the center but enought isolated from the noisy crowd and traffic. He is a very kind host and I do recommend his room for your stay and enjoy this magic city.
Todo perfecto. Buen recibimiento, anfitrión amable y dispuesto a echar una mano. Habitación justa de dimensiones pero correcta, con buena cama. El resto del piso agradable y bien decorado.
Location imasing, close everywere.
Finally appeared that room was small. Only place for bed and also room was dark (small window). Exept this fact, Miguell was very helpful and gave us direction to great places according to breakfast and dinner.
In apartment staid one more person. We really meet Miguell only at the beginning.
Very nice and original place to live! Metro is just 2 minutes away, and all attractions of Barcelona are within walking distance. This is probably the perfect place for young people looking for something easy and refreshing!
