Our apartment is in a quiet, nice and well connected neighborhood surrounded by several parks. Only 20 minutes walk from the beach and Plaza Catalunya or the holy family! Renovated and decorated with care by myself just trying to have a modern, fresh and warm air to be a cozy corner in the city with a special charm.
We have 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms, a good size kitchen and a large dining room. Currently only we offer one of the rooms to accommodate as momentarily are staying at my grandmother. She's no trouble because your room is at the opposite end of the house and did not hear noise from her or her you can hear noise at night.
The room is medium but very cozy and well fitted room with a large closet to store your bags and belongings, a folding table desk to study or organize your day and a divan trundle double bed with memory foam mattress very comfortable in which it can be stored below it.

The apartment is only 3 minutes from the Marina metro station (red line) and 5 minutes from Monumental (purple line) if you need it.

* We live in a quiet family neighborhood so it is very important for us that you respect the neighbors and be aware of the noise on the stairs and in the apartment.
* On the other hand, you have total freedom to come and go as you want but we are not on vacation so if you arrive late please remember that the next day we work and we need to respect our rest.
* Please do not bring towels to the beach, we can provide beach towels if you wish.
* Please do not smoke in the apartment or room with the windows open, we are not smokers. If you want to smoke you can do so in the street.
* We care because you can feel at home and everything is able, please try to take care of the same way.
* Most importantly, make yourself at home and enjoy Barcelona! :)
Smoking is not allowed.

Hi everybody !
Melissa and Mickael are great hosts, very friendly. The bedroom is confortable and clean.
The appartment is perfectly located, close to many sites : Sagrada Familia, Arc del Triomf, Parc de la Ciutadella, la Torre Agbar and the Parc Guell.
Furthermore, the subway station is at five minutes walking, which is very convenient.
Thanks Mel and Mickael for everything, for the good moments we shared.
Valérie and Philippe, from Brittany.
Es ist eine sehr sehr nette Familie mit viel Humor, die bei jedem Problem geholfen hat. Ich hab mich da, wie zuhause, gefühlt. (Teilweise sogar besser...) Alles ist sauber und das Bett ist bequem.
Es ist nur ein kurzer Weg zur Metro und Tram und in 10min ist man mitten in der Stadt.
Beide sprechen Spanisch und Englisch.
Wenn ich mal wieder nach barcelona komme, weiß ich, wo ich übernachte :D
Room was as described (small but cozy and clean). Access to the others areas in home was provided. Michael and Mel are very nice and helpful people.
Unfortunately during our stay two issues were nuisance. First, the smell in the apartment was strange. Second, cockroaches in the kitchen.
Summarizing the conditions are adequate to the price.
a very very friendly Family. The room is a little bit small but for sleeping it's okay, you live near the Sagrada Familia, but every day to go in the centre it is to far. Thanks for everything and greetings from germany :)
I felt like my home when I stayed their home. Their room was clean and the subway station was close to their home.And if you like to walk,also you can go to Sagrada Familia and some famous tourist spot on foot.When I go back to Barcelona,definitely I'm gonna choose their home again :) Thank you Mel and Michael !!
Mel and Michael are great hosts. I really felt welcomed as "part of the family". The bed was so cosy. Plus, it is so easy to to walk or hop on the metro to get to the city centre, the beach, well just anywhere.
The sleeping room definitely too small.To dress-1 person has to get out to enable the 2nd
one to get dressed.Also a limited access to TV.OTHERS:hosts and sharing family from Peru
and Venezua-very frendly.No control in access to frigde staff/what we never used/.
Nice friendly hosts who offer very clean comfortable accommodation. Good location within n walked no distance to sights, beaches and city centre although convenient for metro and buses to anywhere. It was an ideal homestay for the #TICBCN Barcelona city orienteering race.
Thank you Mel and Michael.
