About the Area
Our house is located in the city of Barcelona in a quiet and safe place. We are 20 min. from the city center (when using underground) and about 30 min. drive from the airport.
The underground is just in front of my apartment and there are a lot of underground and bus options using these stops.
Close to my apartment is the Sagrada Familia.
Barcelona is full of trendy cafes, bars and restaurants as well as some nice fashion boutiques and specialist shops.

Mari est une personne très accueillante , sympathique et sensible, toujours prête à satisfaire ses hôtes dans le but que tout se passe pour le mieux possible.
Très communicative elle parle plusieurs langues étrangères.
Important,malgré la chaleur appartement très agréable pour dormir, il y a toujours un petit brin d'air chez Mari et ses amis les chats sont très sociables.
Nous sommes très très contents de notre séjour
Mari n'est pas une femme, c'est un ange. Toujours souriante, d'une grande gentillesse, elle vous donnera renseignements et conseils pour vos sorties. Vous vous rechargerez en Zen attitude. Vous arrivez chez une hôtesse, vous quittez une amie. À recommander vivement.
Marie is the best host i ever come across. Very kind gentle thoughtful. 5 hearts not good enough. She deserves 100 hearts. Room is lovely and comfortable. Bathroom is very clean. Good shower. Beautiful terrace. I strongly recommend her place to everyone. I will definitely stay with marie again in my next trip to barcelona. Thank you so much marie for everything. Big hugs!

This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Mari is a loving and positive person and easy going with her guests. We really enjoyed our stay. Her place is just next to the metro station in a safe area. There are mini markets and coffee shops very close. If you dont have problem with cats (they are friendly and fun), its a great choise...
Helloooo * I stayed with Mary for some days in Barcelona. Had such a lovely experience.
The booking was originally just for me, however my boyfriend was also able to make it and Mary was very accommodating *
Mary's home was very cute and homely, she was such a lovely lady and had the most adorable loving& hugging cats!! I had so many cat cuddles - which made me so happy!
Thank you so much for everything Mary <3 Would go back anytime x x
Ich hatte wunderschöne Tage bei Marie und ihren Katzen. Marie ist ein wundervoller Mensch. Ich komme bestimmt wieder.
Très bon accueil de Mari et de ses 4 chats. Appartement petit, bien situé(a la porte métro Congres) quartier populaire. Pouvoir discuter en français avec Mari a été un plus,avec de bon conseils. Zen et cool ,la présence des chats peut déranger certains....
Mari is an incredibly sweet, compassionate and thoughtful person, who put me completely at ease upon my arrival in Spain. I couldn't have asked for a better host.
Lovely experience, Mari is laid back and good company. Apartment was great, roof top terrace for sunny breakfasts ,lunch and dinners. If homestays all come as good as this , i will do it again.
