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.

Anna and Marcos provided a very clear description of how to reach the place, map and book about the places to visit - it was very useful.
Since we love walking, location of the apartment right in the center of Barcelona was an excellent choice.
Thanks Anna and Marcos for hosting us. Not forgetting their lovely cats that made our trip more interesting and enjoyable. The place is clean and with strategic location to some of the tourist attractions. They are very kind to recommend some good foods around so we get to sample some good cuisine in Barcelona. They are very helpful and attentive! Highly recommended!
We had a great stay with Anna and Marcos! They were so helpful and had great suggestions for what to do and where to eat. The location is perfect- Near lots of attractions and restaurants but in a nicely secluded side street. The cats are super friendly! I would definitely recommend staying here!
