Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Cons: Well, apartments definitely doesn't look as good as photos and the room is really dark and small. The building is very beautiful but strange, because in this room the window is on the stairwell side and you wake up at about 6 am when the neighbors start to slam the doors and speaking loud.
    Pros: Location is TOP. Mary and her husband are very nice persons and they will always help you if you have questions. I really appreciate the atmosphere there.
    Resume: I highly recommend this place, but don't expect to see something amazing.

  • Encantadores. Mary y Starky son hospitalarios, magníficos. La casa está en un sitio privilegiado. Junto a PLaza España, con una parada de Bus en la misma puerta que te deja en el Aeropuerto en 30 m. Todo muy tranquilo y el balcón del salón con unas vistas espectaculares
    Todo muy positivo y una estancia para repetir

  • Très bien accueilli, la chambre est correcte et propre. l'appartement se trouve à côté de la Place d'Espana qui facilite quand on prend le bus depuis l'aéroport. De plus le métro se trouve également sur cette place, ce qui permet de se rendre dans tout Barcelone.

  • Thank you Mary! I had an amazing time. Great directions from the hotel to the flat, Mary was waiting in the room. Mary is a great host and has helpful advice about getting around Barcelona. The atmosphere in the house is very relaxed, there is a great view from the balcony, the bed was comfortable, sheets and the towel were clean. I'm definitely planning to stay here again :)

  • Mary and Starsky are friendly, kind, and helpful. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Mary and Starsky's house.

    The house is located on the center of Barcelona and the Metro is very close so it was easy for me to access to any place I wanted to visit. The room is inexpensive and worth it to stay.

I'm from Portland ,Oregon, USA and I've been living in Barcelona since June 2011. I studied a master's degree in Translation Studies at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) and am currently working as a freelance translator/english teacher. My interests include, hiking, camping, cooking, soccer, dancing, el Camino de Santiago, yoga, running, foreign languages, and of course, world travel. I couldn't pick a favorite place in the world, there are too many wonderful things to see and experience; however, next on my destination list is the Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal. Although I'm new to Airbnb, I have lots of experience living with people from all over the world. Previous roommates of mine have come from countries such as China, Nigeria, Kenya, Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela, Iran and Mexico. Looking forward to meeting more travelers from all over the world! Peace
