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.

    Superhost. J'ai adoré. Très serviable et le plus pour moi, dialogue dans la langue de Molière parfait. Les chats sont adorables et très sociales. Hâte de revenir. Merci encore pour l'accueil.

    Ich habe meine Zeit bei Mari sehr genossen. Sie ist eine unglaublich herzliche und unkomplizierte Frau bei der man sich sofort wie zu Hause fühlt! Ihre Katzen haben dafür gesorgt, dass es nie langweilig wurde ;) Vielen Dank für die schöne Unterkunft und die leckeren, hausgemachten Säfte!

    This was my first homestay, and it was the best experience I could have. Meeting Mari was a blessing in my destiny. She made me feel like home, and I'm thankfull for every little thing we share.
    I would definitely come back any time.

    Mari made me feel very welcome and even cooked meals for me. She was very helpful as regards places to go and how to get there. The bedroom and her apartment were both very nice and as advertised. Location was only a couple of minutes walk from the metro. I would highly recommend staying at her place. She is a lovely woman.

    Mari ist eine tolle Gastgeberin. Sie gibt gerne Auskunft, ist sehr bemüht, dass sich ihre Gäste wohl fühlen. Da sie viele Sprachen spricht, ist die Kommunikation einfach und angenehm und interessant. Sie engagiert sich im Tierschutz und das merkt man an ihren tollen Katzentieren. Deren Gesellschaft hat man als Bonbon mit dazu. Das Zimmer ist ausreichend groß, sehr sauber und ruhig. Die Terasse ist groß, gemütlich gestaltet und läd zum Verweilen ein. Metro und Bus fahren quasi direkt vor der Tür und die unmittelbare Umgebung ist auch einen kleinen Rundgang wert. Ruhiges von Familien bewohntes Viertel. Alles in Allem, eine durchweg empfehlenswerte Unterkunft. Ich würde sofort und gerne wieder dort übernachten.Danke für die schöne Zeit. Und hoffentlich auf ein Wiedersehen. Cat

    Mari is a great person, loving, friendly, and nice to chat with. Not only did I feel completely at home with her and her friendly cats, but she percevered with my attempts to improve my Spanish. The flat is very chilled, clean and the roof terrace is great. Located right next to the metro too. I would highly recommend this Homestay and would do it again.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
