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!

The space is exactly what is advertised. Beautiful apartment in Barcelona it's clean and spacious definitely a spot where you could live long term.
Anna's apartment is in a fantastic location - it's right by the beautiful music hall and lots of lovely bars and shops. All the sights are only a walk away.
The apartment was easy to find and the we picked up the keys from a friendly lady at the local shop. The apartment was clean, full of charm and perfect for three friends.
Definitely recommend staying here! We will be back next time we come to Barcelona!
A pleasant apartment in a perfect location. Great help from host and a great time. Would highly recommend Anna's place to anyone visiting !
Anna was perfect. Booked last minute and she was immediately responsive. Everything worked out well. The area is good to get around and would definitely look into booking again.
Anna's place in Barcelona was amazing! Great size for four people and wonderful location near an assortment of food and sights! Unfortunately I had to leave a day earlier than expected but my friends said the place lived up to the expectations we set prior to the trip! Anna was also understanding of my departure and was very friendly! I will definitely recommend Anna and we will definitely be back to spend some more nights at Anna's!
Die Lage der Wohnung war top! Leider ziemlich hellhörig, so dass wir schlecht schlafen konnten! Die Wohnung an sich war ok! Die Schlafzimmer haben keine Decke und man hört jedes Geräusch des anderen! Die Sauberkeit war in Ordnung, aber nicht gut! Alles in allem war es aber für 3 Nächte in Ordnung!
We had a lovely few days in Barcelona and the apartment was in such good central location. It was a clean and tidy apartment with plenty of room for my three friends and I. Anna had left the keys with a local shop keeper who also let us leave our bags with her once we had checked out. They were all very accommodating and would definitely consider staying again to explore more of the city!

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!
