I am from Berlin, love travelling and always prefer to stay with local people than in a hotel.
Anne's flat is in THE PERFECT LOCATION! My boyfriend and I spent a week at her place and seriously, it's all about the location! We didn't use our Metro pass once and just walked everywhere with ease - Montjuic, La Rambla, the Gothic quarter, Guadi's La Sagrada Familia (plus his two apartment blocks), the Arc de Triomphe and many more places worth visiting. If you have an issue with walking, the apartment is only a block away from the Metro, 2 blocks from the airport shuttle and is only on the second floor (but has a lift too). It's a small place with a tiny kitchen (with two gas burners) but numerous pots and pans (though no microwave nor oven). The bathroom is fine, though the shower is definitely small and lacks a curtain but hot water is gas on demand which means no cold showers - ever. The shower itself is old and poorly placed plus there's no shower curtain which means every time you shower you have to mop the floor which is slightly annoying. My boyfriend, who is 6ft2, struggled to stand comfortably in the small tub and get under the shower head, but I was fine (I'm 5ft9). The bed is super comfy and I slept really well! But the bedding was somewhat lacking - there was one top sheet provided which wasn't even a double and meant only one of us could use it (it's kinda warm in Barcelona but I always like sleeping under a blanket as I'm quite used to warm weather). The apartment also has a small sunroom with dining table that backs onto a small courtyard where we spent many evenings and was a massive plus! In general the apartment is a little old, but is packed full of character. I loved the high ceilings and old fixtures but it might not be to some people's taste. All in all, I would totally recommend staying at Anne's place. The location makes it a 10 out of 10 and the minor issues can easily be overlooked!
Très bon produit! L'appartenant correspondait parfaitement à notre attente. Bien placé : à 10 min de la Rambla à pied, à 20min en metro de la gare Sants. L'immeuble est bien sécurisé et le quartier est très bien.
L'appartement est charmant et a du cachet, très cosy.
Nous avons été très bien accueillies par une amie de Anne Katrin, qui nous a laissé de bonnes adresses et bons plans! Nous attendaient une carte de la ville et une bouteille de vin espagnol délicieux.
On vit un petit peu avec le voisinage (dû à l'isolation de l'appartement et aux voisins parfois bruyants), mais quand on est en vacances ce n'est vraiment pas gênant.
Very good product! The flat perfectly matched with our expectations. Well placed: 10 minutes walk from La Rambla, 20 minutes by metro from Sants station. The building is secure and the area is very good.
The apartment is charming and very cozy.
We were very well received by a friend of Anne Katrin, who gave us good addresses and tips! She gave us a map of the city and a delicious bottle of Spanish wine.
We live a little bit with the neighborhood (due to the isolation of the apartment and sometimes noisy neighbors), but when you're on vacation is not really annoying.
We really enjoyed our stay in Anne-Katrin's lovely flat and felt very at home. The flat is located right next to the Raval, so equally perfect for daytime strolling and going out at night. The flat was clean and very well prepared, everything we needed was there and Anne-Katrin gave us quite a few pretty amazing recommendations! The communication was very easy. I'd go back immediately.
Anne and Andrea are definitely one of our favorite guests! Very friendly, warm and polite people. Extremely responsive and reachable by email, they kept me well informed of their arrival time, really looked after the apartment as if it was their own and they left it clean, neat and tidy when they left. They even were so kind. It was a big pleasure to have them at home and I'd be glad to host them again any time. Thanks very much for your choice!
Anne Carme and Patri stayed with us in the apartment. They are lovely and friendly girls. It was a pleasure to host them. The communication was great and the apartment was left in perfect condition. We surely recommend them as guests.
Anne was a really nice guest, good on communications and friendly with everyone .
I recommend her to other host.
