About the Homestay
I live in a large apartment in the center of Barcelona, in a quiet neighborhood with my grandmother and my two very nice cats;)
My apartment is located in a quiet, beautiful and well connected neighborhood surrounded by several parks. Only 20 minutes walking from the beach and from plaza catalunya or from the holy family! Renovated and decorated with care by myself recently try to have a modern, fresh and warm air to make it a cozy corner in the city with a special charm.
I have 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms, a good sized kitchen and a large dining room.
The single room "Cozy Small Room" is small but comfortable, it has two comfort mattresses for a pleasant rest, it is a sofa bed where two people can sleep comfortably. It has enough space to store clothes and suitcases. ideal to rest and study.
The double bed room "Cozy Double Room" is a medium room but very cozy and well used, with a large closet to store your bags and belongings, a folding desk to study or organize your day and a divan double bed with very comfortable viscoelastic mattress in which you can store below it, also has a small fridge.
We also have another room with a very comfortable single bed and window. Apart from your room you have shared access to:
* Complete bathroom and renovated in a fresh and modern way with bathtub where you will have everything you need (hair dryer, etc ...)
* Kitchen recently renovated in a fresh way with breakfast area. It has a microwave, refrigerator, oven, dishwasher .. kettle, coffee machine .. and washer and dryer.
I love to host and to know new cultures, we wish to welcome you in our home with a very warm welcome. You will have the privacy you need but we will be at your disposal at all times to help and assist you during your stay, if necessary.
We work in the beauty sector and Mel is nailtech. She loves nailart!

About the Area
Great location in a quiet neighborhood near the center of Barcelona. Less than 15 minutes from the Sagrada Familia and only 20 minutes walk from the beach and harbor (you can also go by bus). It is relatively close to important cultural sites (Parc de la Ciutadella, zoo ...) and a 25 minute walk (or 5 minutes by subway) from Plaza Catalunya. The apartment is only 3 minutes from the Marina metro station (red line) and 5 minutes from Monumental (purple line) if you need it. Have 10 minutes to the train station Arc de Triomf and plenty of bus stops! Just five minutes from the bus station which goes directly to the airport in Girona!

* We live in a family and quiet neighborhood so it is very important for us that you respect the neighbors and be aware of the noise levels on the stairs and in the apartment.
* On the other hand, you have total freedom to leave and enter when you want but we are not on vacation so if you arrive late please remember that the next day we work and we need respect our rest.
* Please do not bring bath towels to the beach, we can provide you with beach towels if you wish.
* Please do not smoke in the apartment or in the room with the windows open, we are not smokers. If you want to smoke, you can do it on the street.
* We worry that you can feel at home and everything is in condition, please try to take care of it in the same way.
* We have two cats and they are part of the family, they are very calm, you can play with them without problem.
* Most importantly, feel at home and enjoy Barcelona! :)
Smoking is not allowed.
Bonjour. Cet hébergement est très bien situé, c'est son point fort. Tout y est très propre. La chambre pour 2 est un peu petite, et je me suis sentie un peu gênée par l'accès partagé à la salle de bain. Attention si l'adresse est facile à trouver, par contre il n'y a aucun nom sur les boites à lettre, du coup il a fallu sonner chez tous les habitants de l'immeuble avant de trouver le bon. Bien se faire préciser l'étage et la porte au moment de la réservation car le numéro de téléphone indiqué ne répond pas . Mon anglais très rudimentaire n'a pas permis d'échanger beaucoup avec notre hôtesse et nous étions fort occupées par les visites dans la merveilleuse
ville de Barcelone .
It was really nice meeting Mel & Michael. I and my friend enjoyed staying at their apartment. They’re very friendly & very polite :) i I didn’t go to this website for a while, therefore I’m writing this review now, better late than never :D

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour. Appartement très bien situé. Chambre un peu petite mais très propre. Sanitaires très propres également. Mel et Michael sont très accueillants. Très serviables et très gentils. Je recommande sans problème cette location.
È stata la nostra prima esperienza con questo sito ed è stata fantastica! La casa è in pieno centro (circa 10min a piedi dalla Sagrada Familia) e anche se la stanza è un po' piccola, la casa è accogliente e funzionale. I proprietari di casa sono una coppia giovane, disponibile e simpaticissima, che sono spesso fuori casa per lavoro. Un bel punto di appoggio e un'ottima compagnia, esperienza da rifare sicuramente ❤️
Mel y Michael una pareja muy agradable. La casa muy limpia y acogedora. La ubicación zona tranquila pero muy cercano al centro y con toda combinación de transporte público super cerca.
Sin duda si volvemos a Bercelona nos alojaremos allí.
Michael and Mel always were very friendly. They have given us many helpful tips. The flat is very centrally and is clean. I can only recommend a stay in this flat.
Very clean apartment, well located, functional. Mel and Michael are really helpful and friendly.
Very nice and helpful hosts. My stay there was perfect and it's also a great location.
