Interaction with Guests
As we work almost the whole day, during the week we are only at home in the evenings. On the weekends we enjoy being at home but if theres nice weather we will also go out or go out fior a drink in the evening. We like respecting our guests private atmosphere and vice versa, but of course are happy to share moments together with our guests if they want to.
In our neighborhood you will find a mix of fashion, bohemian and historical atmosphere. it is a multi-cultural neighbourhood, where you will see a lot of people of moroccan and caribbean origin. You will find a lot of bars, restaurants and little shops, and also some nice museums and historic buildings, so we definitely think its a nice area to stay at!
The metro Jaume 1 (yellow line) is a 3 minute walk away from our flat and brings you almost everywhere in the city. There are also several buses you can take and the tourist sightseeing bus also departs from near the Cathedral. Alternatively you can rent a bike in the nearby bike rental places or just walk if you like walking as everything is pretty much nearby :-).

Hi there! We know it should not be about listing and endless set of rules as we think that using the common sense should be enough, however, in order to really ensure both of us will have a pleasant cohabitation, we would be happy if you could give a quick read through our "general guidelines" before making a reservation:
- Please bear in mind that only the number people mentioned in the reservation request shall stay in the room (maximum 2). If you want to bring other daytime visitors into the flat please ask us before.
- If you want to smoke please do so in the balconies outside only.
- Please feel free to come and go whenever you want, but if you come late at night please always respect ours and others' neighbors sleep and rest at night
- Checkout shall be, if not agreed otherwise with us, before 11 am.
- We will provide you with clean bed linen and towels.
- You can use the washing and drying machine at an extra cost of 2,50 € each.
- Please feel free to use the kitchen and the basic food there is such as water, coffee, sugar and tea. You can also use the shampoo and shower gel we provide for our guests in the bathroom.
- Please bear in mind that we live in a 4th floor without elevator.
- Please also remember that we have two quite energetic cats in the house, so you definitely should be a cat lover (or at least not a cat hater! :)
- We will give you one set of keys to enter the house, but if you loose them we do request a penalty fee of 10 Euros.
Thanks a lot for your understanding and help with keeping our shared apartment nice and clean!
My husband and I really loved staying at Anna's during our stay in Barcelona! She made us feel incredibly welcome and at home. The room was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Plus the location can't be beat! It's very central and you are close to everything. We also loved her two kitties, who were friendly and playful. We definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again.
Anna and Marcos (along with their cats Tiger and Ashy) made us feel at home. The location was great as we were able to walk to all the sights we wanted to visit. A real bonus was having the Palau de Musica only a 5 minute walk. This allowed us to attend a concert and saunter home. The Time Out guide they loaned us had the most detailed map we had come across, the space and features were exactly as mentioned, and with oranges in season it was a treat to have a bowl of them on the counter. A special thank you to Marcos for his vegetarian restaurant recommendations. They were great and our friends loved them. With good restaurants and markets nearby our only word of warning is don't forget anything at the bottom of the stairs as they live on the fourth floor and it's a long walk up to do it twice.

Anna & Marcos checked in on us before our arrival to ensure that everything is well-prepared. The instructions were very clear and thus our stay was very enjoyable.
Apart from the fantastic location, what tops the entire experience for us was definitely the two cats. We adore Tiger & Ashi and if you are a cat-lover, do make sure that you stay with Anna's and Marcos'!
It was my pleasure to stay at this great place with lovely cats, friendly host and hostess.
Amazing location to getting around the city.
2-3 minutes away from a metro station and 7 minutes to the center by foot !
i highly recommend this place to people who wish to spend their time in the very heart of Barcelona with such a coziness.
Anna und Marcos haben sich sehr um uns bemüht und alles getan, damit wir uns richtig wohl fühlen. Das haben wir auch ! Die beiden sind super nett, liebevoll, sehr hilfsbereit, großzügig , sehr gastfreundschaftlich und kommunikativ.Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und gemütlich eingerichtet und super zentral gelegen in einem schönen alten Viertel. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Metrostation und Fahrradverleih sind um die Ecke. Wir haben ein paar Tage in Barcelona verbracht, um die Stadt kennen zu lernen und haben uns bei Anna und Marcos rundum wohlgefühlt. Beim nächsten Barcelona Besuch würden wir gerne wieder bei Ihnen wohnen.
Anna and Marcos are such sweet, generous and warmhearted persons and did everything to let us feel at home and we actually did. The appartment is very cozy and had everything that we (website hidden) is located very central in a beautiful quarter of Barcelona, very close to the market, the Metro station and different shops.Also bike rental Shops are located nearby.We can absolutely recommend the appartment of Anna and Marcos, we had a very good time there and the next time we will be in Barcelona we would love to stay with them again !! Thank you
Staying with Anna and Marcos was wonderful!!! I can't say enough. They were so nice and welcoming and their apartment was beautiful, just like the pictures. Also, you can not beat the location. Being near a metro made it easy to go wherever in the city, and their neighborhood had great restaurants and bars and shopping as well! They also were very accommodating to our travel schedule, allowing us to both check in early and leave when convenient for our travels. Thank you both!!!!! We can't wait to come back!
