    September 2013
  • Anna Marie was a lovely host and her apartment was first class! Situated near Placa de Sants station, the heart of Barcelona is only a 5 minute train ride away! Apartment was impeccable...clean, charming, plenty of character, with an amazing pool and balcony! As for Anna Marie, she was exactly the same! Very warm and welcoming, who indicated our best options during our short stay. She very kindly suggested bars, restaurants and culture spots to visit etc. She was always contactable during our stay and was always willing to help! Me and my friends will most definitely be returning!!!

    August 2013
  • My girlfriend and me spent 6 nights at Anna Marie's place and simply put, it was a fantastic experience that we can highly recommend. She is a very caring host who made sure to make us feel comfortable throughout our stay. As she writes on her page, she welcomes you as a friend, which we liked a lot. Since she has lived in the city for some time she was able to give us very good recommendations for going out, among others to find the best Tapas bar in Barcelona.

    The house, which is comfortably located a few minutes footwalk away from a metro station, is fantastic, its interior stunning, and the terrace on the rooftop perfect after a long day in the city. Also, if you have the slightest interest in Scandinavian design, you will find yourself surrounded by beautiful, timeless furniture and art. This, too, is part of the remarkable atmosphere we experienced.

    July 2013
  • During our vacation in Barcelona we stayed 5 days in Anna Marie Jensen’s home, a townhouse tastefully decorated in a transition area of smaller workshops, the Sants area, integrated in Barcelona 100 years ago. Danish furniture architecture and design in semi industrial surroundings, thorough cleaning along with a five star service level, gave our stay a luxurious touch yet in homely surroundings. We felt very welcome and even as a guest in this home without classic, separated rooms, the stay was a good experience, as Anna Marie has a fine sense of both an interest in her guests while respecting guests' need for privacy.

    The holidays in Barcelona were an attractiveness-tour focusing on the city’s history and many attractions. Thus each day advanced as scheduled and was spent walking from the morning to the night. The daily kilometers of walking offered a special opportunity to get close to the pulse of the city and it's culture and featured unexpected experiences that cannot be planned and made ​​the visit distinctive and memorable.

    Day 1: Las Ramblas, La Boqueria, the Colombo’s statue, the French railway station, the beach, the Riviera, the Ciutadella Parc, the Arc of Triumph, shopping center and Parc de Joan Miró.

    Day 2: Camp Nou, Les Tres Torres, Sant Gervasi la Bonanova, Parc Güell, Casa Mila, the Cathedral, Paseo de Gracia

    Day 3: Montjuïc, La fuente Magica, National Art Museum of Catalonia, Olympic Stadium of Barcelona, the Miró museum, Parc de l’Espanya Industrial, Sagrada Familia, El Born, El Raval and El Paralello, un area with seemingly many immigrants. Santa Maria del Mar. Anna Marie’s house. La Fuente Magica (evening light show at Plaza Espanya)

    Day 4: Tibidabo, Plaza del Tibidabo, El Born, Santa Maria del Mar, stop over in Anna Marie s house, La Fuente Magica (show in the evening at Plaza Espanya)

    Day 5: Parc Güell, hydropower plant, the Olympic City, the Ciutadella Parc, at Anna Marie s home

    July 2013
  • Beautiful apartment, great hostess, very comfortable. I felt welcome and well looked after. I had a busy three days in Barça and enjoyed being able to come back to Anna Marie's oasis of calm at the end of each day, and was sent off each morning after a healthy breakfast with a spring in my step. Recommended.

  • The Best Airbnb EVER for me by far!!!
    The best way to describe my experience in one word is
    "5 stars B&B experience"

    1. The house is super centrally located. Easy Walking distance to Sants (Central station of BCN) and minutes to the main Subways.
    2. The house is remodeled from classic house into Ultra modern Danish style-Top end design house.
    3. All facilities / bedding materials / bath room / kitchen appliances are all TOP-END brands. They are truly 5 Stars quality/function
    4. Anna Marie is a "Super host" who offer a "Unique service" which cannot be found any place else. She cooks breakfast and dinner upon your requests. She puts all her heart and seoul to pamper you with 5star-hotel quality meals. ( From my experience they all taste better than many 5 stars hotel/restaurants)
    5. Neighborhood is very safe and surrounded by traditional/modern shops ... for all you need. I basically just relax and did not want to move for the whole week that I stay with her because everything is there at Anna Marri's
    6. Complete privacy in your private room, as the guest rooms are completely separated from the common areas(kitchen/pool deck) and the host bed room, so you can stay amongst yourselves with the room partition that separates you from the other side of the house.
    7. Cleanliness is the best of all and most important to me.
    the host cleans every day the entire house to perfection. Ensure air circulation so all room do not have any bad smell left and feel fresh.
    I have never met any one who likes things cleaner than myself.
    This point STANDS out amongst all experience with Airbnb around the world.

    I highly recommend Anna Marie's place for those who are
    a. Well mannered / capable to communicate well with the host
    b. Capable to accomodate / understand and respect with rules and hosts properties.
    c. Those who like to find alternative home out of home experience with the super host who will pamper you and make your travel experience 5 star...
    d. Suitable for 1 up to 6 group travelers. As there are 2 Kings bed with super quality mattresses and 2 more single bed/sofa.

    I am amazed with the experience I have had at her place. And cannot think of other places besides Anna Marie's if I should visit Barcelona again. I only problem is I would hope the place will be available for me again next time.
    Thank you again Anna Marie

  • It was a really great holiday at Anna Maries Loft in Barcelona. We were 6 guys doing sightseeing and visiting a music festival.

    The Apartment is really stylish, great beds, additional bathroom and a pool to cool down after sightseeing.The next metro station is just 2-3min away, small nice restaurants in the neighborhood.

    Anna Marie is very caring about her guests. She done breakfast for us multiple times,does the shopping and also washed our cloth ;). If you have a question about transportation,restaurants, etc. she will always be a great support. She will also respect your privacy and if you want to sleep after a long night she is very quiet in the house and will not disturb you.

    We all had a really great stay and recommend the stylish loft of Anna Marie if you are looking for apartment with a carring host in Barcelona.

    June 2013
  • Anna Marie is a kind host and her place is stunningly presented. It was in a good location for trips to montsserrat and easy to get back to main areas of Barcelona. Anna Marie offers breakfast and makes sure everything is clean and tidied when you are out. It was a shame we didn't get to swim in the pool because we were too busy, but maybe next time! Thanks Marie.

    May 2013
  • Anna Marie is a lovely host who lives in a very stylish yet cosy apartment. We were a group of seven people sleeping there for three nights. With seven people occupying two rooms, it can get a little crowded. However, everyone enjoyed the stay very much. Anna Marie is the most welcoming host who is always happy to give you recommendations for places to eat or to see. I especially loved the beautiful little terrace where you can relax and maybe take a dip in the pool.

    May 2013
  • The flat of Anna Marie is spotless. It is also exquisitely decorated. Imagine a five star midcentury modern boutique hotel with all of the amenities for an unimaginably low price. Anna Marie provides laundry and ironing services, wifi, daily coffee and tea, etc. She has a wealth of information about Barcelona sites, dos and donts. The neighborhood is conveniently located to everything, but provides a respite from the usual tourist track. And Anna Marie? She is the Danish mother I never had. A tremendous caretaker and kindred spirit. If you are looking for that gem in Barcelona, you can truly look no further.
