I'm a graphic designer from Barcelona based in Shanghai. I enjoy a lot being at home chilling in good company, cooking, playing music or even working.
When I travel around I look for cute clean places with nice deco.

Clara's place was perfect for my stay. It is located in an awesome location surrounded by restaurants, shops, bars, etc. The WC across the hall was not an inconvenience to me at all. It is a perfect size for 1 or 2 people.
Clara was a great host, even far away, she always replied promptly and the room is very well located! One of the best neighborhoods in Shanghai!
I always receive good service from Clara and her friends. The location is great, walking distance from main shopping avenue. Great food in the Area!
Clara was a very generous and communicative host. Even when she was out of town, she checked in with me and was immediately available for any of our needs or questions. The VERY convenient location, much appreciated air conditioning, mellow and artistic atmosphere, comfortable bed, clean room and awesome DVD collection created a great place to rest at the end of the day in bustling Shanghai. Highly recommended!
haha a good DVD Colletion is the key! xx
Clara's apartment was super cute. It was really cosy and felt like home, while being spacious at the same time. Located in a fantastic area of Shanghai, everything was within walking distance - subway, convenience stores, cafes, restaurants, etc.
The apartment itself is located within a very Chinese building. This itself was cool. It was also really quiet - you escaped the hustle and bustle of the outside world as soon as you stepped inside.
Having the toilet outside the main room was slightly inconvenient, but you got used to it pretty quick and it wasn't a hassle.
I was there in January and it was freezing outside, but the apartment was always warm, even without the main heater on. It is bright with the sun coming in (you can block this out by using the curtains), and the balcony was also great to sit outside and eat or read a book.
Clara was super easy to deal with, and her friend who showed me around the apartment when I arrived was also really friendly. Overall, it was a great stay and I would recommend this place.
The good: the room is cosy and good if you need privacy. Heating in the main room was ok, there is consistent hot water/water pressure, bed is very comfortable, fast internet, kitchen available with fridge and hot plate for cooking, funky decor. Sitting on the balcony in the morning was nice, very lovely cityscape and charming old Shanghai neighborhood. Fantastic location just five minutes walk from 南京西路站, so easy to get to and from Hongqiao airport and train station. Clara was away on vacation when I arrived but her friend helped provide the key and tour and she was very nice. There is a convenience store just downstairs, you need to buy your own bottled drinking water while staying there.
The less good: The shower room is detached from the main room and very, very cold in the winter (I was there in December). The toilet room is also detached and have to walk past someone's kitchen to get there, also extremely cold. The first day I was there locked the bathroom door and since it turns from the inside when locked forgot to unlock, the next morning could not open the door and had to run outside in my PJ's to search for a locksmith. Was not warned about the bathroom door issue, there is no bathroom key, and there was no help from host when I called, had to pay 150rmb for the locksmith (he knew I was desperate).
Clara and her friends were very easy going, nice and friendly! They kept my place clean and tidy. communicate with them was very easy too. They respect all my house rules and neighborhood, update the situation of my home. it's so comfortable to let them stay in my apartment!! recommend to all host in airbnb and welcome back anytime for sure! ^^
Clara is one of the more sociable people I know. Easy going, smart, nice and super funny. She has very good taste and it shows it in everything she does. This is reflected also of course in the place she lives, a really fantastic apartment. Go there and you will not regret it!!
Clara's an amazing person who speaks Spanish, English, French, Catalan and Chinese. She loves to meet new people, has an excellent social network, truly knows what it means to enjoy life to its fullest, and will undoubtedly go above and beyond to not only make you feel at home while staying with her, but also to make your experience in her place and city as memorable and exciting as possible. She has a great sense of style and design and this will be reflected in her gorgeous apartment as well. Do yourself a favor and stay with her!
