    I couldn't have been happier with Mari. She makes you feel at home and the apartment has a very cozy atmosphere. Plus, the cats made our experience a hundred times better. If we ever go to Barcelona again, we'll stay with her and the kitties. 10/10

    Mari est une excellente hôtesse.
    Nous avons été très bien accueillis, son appartement est très agréable.
    L'appartement est très bien situé, juste en face d'une station de métro.
    Mari donne des conseils de visites et a toujours un petit mot gentil.
    Je recommande vivement d'aller passer quelques jours chez elle! Et ses chats sont adorables

    I stayed with Mari for 2 nights on a brief stop in Barcelona and had an amazing experience! My train was delayed and she was kind enough to stay up waiting for me. She even reached out beforehand to ask what I liked for breakfast which was so thoughtful! The room was very nice and comfortable and the cats were definitely an added bonus! Her apartment is right by the metro which is super convenient for getting to the sights! She was so sweet to make me breakfast and gave me directions to getting to Cala Mila! If you’re traveling to Barcelona, I very highly recommend staying with Mari! Nothing but glowing reviews here!

    Mari ist eine tolle und charmante Gastgeberin.
    Sie hat ein großes Herz für Mensch und Tier.
    Das Bett ist gemütlich, die Wohnung schön.
    Wir haben die Abende meist auf der Dachterrasse ausklingen lassen. Natürlich nur wenn es nicht regnet.
    Einmal hat Mari auch für uns gekocht und Kekse gebacken. War lecker.
    Frühstück kann man sich selber machen. Sie erklärt alles.
    Es gibt auch Handtücher.
    Mari spricht super deutsch und hat uns tolle Tipps für Barcelona gegeben.
    Die Katzen sind alle süß. Mia war mein Liebling.
    Die Metro-Station ist gleich gegenüber.
    Große Supermärkte ca. 4 Gehminuten.
    In der Straße gibt es alles was man sonst noch braucht.
    Tolle ruhige Lage. Schlafzimmer ist zum Innenhof, man konnte wunderbar schlafen.
    Bis zur Sagrada Familia sind wir in 30 Minuten hingelaufen. Auch zum Park Güell in 40 Minuten.
    Natürlich kann alles schnell mit der Metro erreicht werden. Aber wir Laufen gerne.
    Wir können Mari zu 100% empfehlen

    1ere fois que je pars avec Homestay. 1er fois que je pars chez l'habitant en partageant son appartement. petit mais fonctionnel pour juste venir dormir.
    Surprenant pour moi .Mais quel bon accueil. nous étions attendus chez Maria. et ses chats. logement bien situé a coté d'une station de métro; topissime.
    Le quartier super tranquille avec la vie des habitants, des commerces , des petits restaurants de tapas. GeniAL.

    MARIA est une personne délicate et attentionnée. Le petit déjeuner avec elle un matin sur sa terrasse au soleil a été un moment conviviale. Barcelone est une belle ville . je suis sous la charme de MR GAUDI talentueux personnage.
