Interaction with Guests
As I am away from Barcelona when renting the apartment, I have my housecleaner come and arrange the key pick up and drop off with him.
However, when I am in town, then I enjoy welcoming my guests with wine, cheese and olives, and going out for a coffee in the neighbourhood.
Yes, the Metro Urquinaona (Jonqueres entrance) is 100 meters from the apartment and is on the orange line. It is very convenient. There are also many buses passing on Via Laietana, right next to the apartment, as well as the Sightseeing bus next to the cathedral, a few minutes away.
Very easy going, just enjoy! Although I allow smoking, I prefer that you limit it to only smoking out of the kitchen window with the door closed.
Respect the neighbors and don't play music very loud. Just try to behave and have a good time there without bothering the other people. They are really nice and friendly, but it is a well to do family oriented building so quite a peaceful haven from the fast pace and noise of BCN!
We had a great time staying in Anna's apartment. When we were in Barcelona, Anna was on holiday herself, but she had everything perfectly arranged (key pickup, cleaning, emergency phone number, ...). Upfront we received clear information from Anna via mail.
The apartment itself was clean and spacious. We had everything we needed. It's also conveniently located, near a metro station.
Thanks a lot, Anna!
Tres bel appartement, très bien situé et très calme. Tout le confort intérieur nécessaire et des informations très précises d'Anna qui répond rapidement aux messages. A recommander aux personnes sportives ( 4 etages a pied) désireuses d'une situation exceptionnelle.
Anna was very accommodating to the needs of my family and very welcoming. Excellent communication throughout, even though there were a couple of hiccups along the way.
Nous avons passé un tres bon we en famille chez Anna. L appartment est idealement situé, dans une rue calme mais au coeur de Barcelone. Les informations pour s installer dans l appartement etaient très complète et Anna cherche vraiment à ce que ses hôtes passent un bon séjour. L appartement correspond vraiment à la description faite. Le palais de la musique juste à côté est magnifique et il y des supérettes pour faire des courses facilement. Le bar à tapas en face du palais de la musique est délicieux et le service impeccable.
Je recommande donc vivement l appartement de Anna pour les prochains voyageurs.
My friend and I had a great time staying at Anna's apartment. The apartment was located in such a perfect location for us, as it was close to the restaurants on La Rambla and we were able to wander around the streets of the Gothic Quarter. Anna was extremely helpful and accommodating in arranging the key pick-up and drop-off, which made our quick trip to Barcelona much more enjoyable. The apartment was tidy and cozy - and we especially loved the personal touches and decorations from her travels. I would definitely stay here again!
Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Barcelone ; l'appartement est très bien situé en plein centre mais tout en étant au calme. Pas un bruit la nuit pour se reposer. L'organisation d'Anna pour récupérer les clés et pour l'arrivée à l'appartement est parfaite.
Nous avons bien aimé le caractère un peu typique de cet appartement : poutres, haut plafond, tommettes au sol ... et la décoration ramenée des voyages d'Anna. En conclusion, charmant, clair, original, dépaysant.
I didn't get to meet Anna, but she was easy to communicate with and everyone I interacted with was great (Eliana, the cleaning lady, and the ladies at the shop where we picked up the keys). I had no issues coordinating with her and she replies quickly. The apartment is big, clean, and in a great location, close to everything. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. The kitchen and bathroom were stocked with essentials. The only slight downsides were that the shower didn't drain very well and it could get a bit chilly at night. The beds weren't the most comfortable, but they were ok. There were no full length mirrors or bright living room lights at night (which isn't bad but made it a little difficult for three girls getting ready to go out). We were there four nights and enjoyed ourselves. Overall the experience was great, I highly recommend staying here! Thank you, Anna!

Hello travelers of the world!
I am an outgoing person, a lover of life and beauty. I am a professional contemporary dancer and choreographer, and also teach ballet, modern dance and argentinian tango in schools and dance companies, most recently for the Cirque du Soleil. As I travel a lot, I love to return to my peaceful and harmonious home environment in order to recharge my batteries. I love to share the good energy with those who come to stay there. The paintings and eclectic mix of artwork on the walls remind and inspire me from my travels in Asia, America and Europe.
My motto is: Keep moving, the journey never ends!
