Eine wunderschöne Wohnung, fast noch schöner als auf den Fotos. Sauber, komfortabel, geschmackvoll, sehr gut ausgestattet. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt - vielen Dank Mar!
My friends and I stayed in this apartment for 2 nights. The host was very welcoming, polite and extremely fast in her communication throughout. The property is fantastic - spacious, very modern and it has everything you need during your stay in Barcelona. It matches the description fully and I would actually go further in saying that the pictures don't do the apartment full justice - it is even more beautiful than it looks.
The location is also great - very central and we easily walked around the different sightseeing spots from there. If you are coming from the Airport - take bus A1 or A2 - the flat is just a few minutes walk from the bus stop.
In a nutshell - book this place, you will not be disappointed!
Mar was very helpful in arranging an early check in on the arrival day. The apartment was just as expected from the photos , probably a little bigger. Everything you could possibly need and in a fantastic location. I was only in Barcelona for a few days and definitely needed more time. But I have already discussed about coming back in a few months and staying in the same apartment ! So I think that speaks volumes . Thanks again Mar for letting me stay in your beautiful home.
Mi experiencia en Barcelona fue increíble y mucho de esto es porque el piso de Mar esta muy bien localizado. La ubicación es perfecta, el apartamento es perfecto! Agradable, confortable, bien equipado, limpio, con muebles simples y elegantes. La cocina es fenomenal y me he dejado muy tranquila con los supermercados que están muy cerca del piso. Si queréis uno restaurante japonés, hay. Si queréis uno árabes, también hay.. mexicano? También...
Wonderful apartment, wonderful host. Mar was very helpful with restaurant recommendations even before we arrived and very easy to accommodate our early arrival and show us everything in the apartment. The apartment itself is great - full of light, stylishly furnished , lovely architectural details and very comfortable to relax in - in the morning with coffee from the Nespresso machine or with a glass of wine after a long day sightseeing. 1 block from the Metro, an easy 15 minute walk to Placa Catalunya, nearby shops and cafes it is in a charming and central neighborhood.
Das Appartement ist sehr schön und konfortabel eingerichtet, die Lage ist super. Nicht gefallen hat uns, daß Mar zunächst zusagte, daß es kein Problem sei, wenn wir erst um 23.00 Uhr ankommen. Freundlicher Weise boten wir ihr an, daß mein Sohn, welcher bereits früher in Barcelona war, den Schlüssel auch früher holen kann. Es war vereinbart, daß er sich 12.00 Uhr bei ihr meldet. Ab 10.00 Uhr machte sie mir Stress auf meinem Mobiltelefon, daß mein Sohn sich noch nicht gemeldet habe, genau wissend, daß ich in München und beruflich unterwegs bin. Das selbe Thema hatten wir bei der Abreise. Sie sagte meinem Sohn, wir könnten so lange bleiben wie wir wollen. Mein Sohn wollte noch arbeiten im Appartement, da sein Flug erst um 20.30 ging. Ab 15.00 Uhr standen die Putzfrauen im Hausflur und um 15.30 Uhr wurde geläutet und nachgefragt, wann wir nun endlich gehen würden. Das ist nun in meinen Augen das Gegenteil von Gastfreundschaft. wir haben einen Schlüssel verloren, dafür sollen wir ohne Rechnung 150.00 € bezahlen. das kommt uns viel vor und wir werden den Schlüssel natürlich nach Vorlage der Rechnung bezahlen.

Normally, all my guests inform about their arrival time in advance, so we can arrange all the details of their check in properly. Of course it was not a problem to wait for your son, but I was waiting at the apartment and didn't hear from him until almost 13h. Sorry to have stressed you out, the truth is I only sent you a message in the morning kindly requesting your son's phone number to contact him, which I think was the logical thing to do. I also work and have a little baby, so I always appreciate when guests plan their check in in advance so I can also arrange my work and personal schedule accordingly.
Regarding the check out, I told your son there was no rush to check out in the morning as the cleaning was planned in the afternoon. Sorry if I was not clear enough about it. In any case, I also contacted you previously to know your plans for the check out (to your son's email, from which he had contacted me on the check in), as I was ready to change the schedule of the cleaning if you needed to stay longer, but the truth is I never got any response from you and that is why the cleaning was not re-scheduled.
Finally, regarding the loss of the keys, I also contacted you immediately asking you about it and never got a response. My cleaning lady does not speak proper English so she did not informed me about it because she probably didn't understand you. Of course these things can happen and is not a big deal, but the important thing in my opinion is to communicate with your host, which I have found quite difficult with you. Of course I never had the intention of charging you 150€ for the key. You can re-read my message where I said I would ask airbnb to hold the deposit until getting a response about the key.
I think the right thing would have been to talk to me directly to solve all these questions, which I have tried several times during your stay.
Thank you again for choosing my apartment for your stay and also for leaving the apartment in good shape. And sorry again for the inconveniences. I honestly think everything could have been easily solved just by contacting me.

I work as freelance for cultural and development projects. We organize dance and music events in the city such a contemporary dance festival located in well-known public spaces of Barcelona.
I love to travel and met new people. I have had the chance to travel the world quite a lot thanks to my work for international NGOs working in countries such as India, Cambodia, Peru, Mozambique, Bolivia, Colombia, etc.
My place is charming and cozy. I recently spent quite a lot of time renovating it completely, but keeping the old modernist elements, which are very unique and valuable. I hope you will really feel at home here!
