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.

Genial. Todo. Los gatos adorables, igual que Mari. La estancia, limpia, cómoda y con todo lo necesario y más. Mari is the best ✨✨✨
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.
EXCELENT SEJOUR MARIE TRES SYMPATIQUE TRES ACCUEINTE ET TRES SIMPLE SANS OUBLIE SES CHATS NOMES MRCELETO SOPHIE NADIA KARIM
Helpful and Caring host. Metro at doorstep a bonus.
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
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
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.
