A GUEST FROM JAPAN JUNE 2013
The Best place EVER for me by far!!! The best way to describe my experience in one word is "5 stars B&B experience"
1. The house is super centrally located. Easy walking distance to Sants (Central station of BCN) and minutes to the main subways.
2. The house is remodelled from classic house into Ultra modern Danish style-Top end design house.
3. All facilities / bedding materials / bath room / kitchen appliances are all TOP-END brands. They are truly 5 Stars quality/function
4. Anna Marie is a "Super host" who offer a "Unique service" which cannot be found any place else. She cooks breakfast and dinner upon your requests. She puts all her heart and soul to pamper you with 5star-hotel quality meals (from my experience they all taste better than many 5 stars hotel/restaurants)
5. Neighbourhood is very safe and surrounded by traditional/modern shops ... for all you need. I basically just relaxed and did not want to move for the whole week that I stayed with her because everything is there at Anna Marie's
6. Complete privacy in your private room, as the guest rooms are completely separated from the common areas (kitchen/pool deck) and the host bedroom, so you can stay amongst yourselves with the room partition that separates you from the other side of the house.
7. Cleanliness is the best of all and most important to me. The host cleans every day the entire house to perfection. Ensure air circulation so all room do not have any bad smell left and feel fresh. I have never met any one who likes things cleaner than myself. This point STANDS out amongst all experience with places around the world.
I highly recommend Anna Marie's place for those who are
a. Well mannered / capable to communicate well with the host
b. Capable to accommodate / understand and respect with rules and hosts properties.
c. Those who like to find alternative home out of home experience with the super host who will pamper you and make your travel experience 5 star.
d. Suitable for 2 travellers. As there are Kings Size beds with super quality mattresses.
I am amazed with the experience I have had at her place. And cannot think of other places besides Anna Marie's if I should visit Barcelona again. Only problem is I would hope the place will be available for me again next time. Thank you again Anna Marie

"Superb quiet loft in authentic and lively area"
We had a great time in this house! We were very warmly welcomed by the house owner - Anne, who lives in the house as well. Anne shows you all the delicious shops in the neighbourhood and offers to cook for you or prepare breakfast, IF you wish. She told us she even babysits, may you come with small kids and wish to have an evening out just by the two of you. That would have been great – some years ago…… (our children are 16 and 14).
Anne makes you feel at home immediately and fully respects your privacy. The house is beautifully designed, with great Danish furniture, paintings and very comfortable king size beds and lounge chairs. The house has a beautiful roof terrace and patio, with even a small swimming pool.
The house is located in a neighbourhood just off the tourist tracks of Barcelona, so you can still get a local feel. Several nice restaurants around the corner. A quiet And this all just two metro stops away from the Plaza Espana. The Metro is within 2 mins walk, the Sants train station only 8 mins away. Very practical if you want to go to the superb beaches south of Barcelona, such as Sitges.
We have been in Barcelona several times, and we never found such a quiet place. Great after a day in the city buzz.
When we return to Barcelona this will be our choice to stay! Because we never found such a great place (– and certainly not for that price…).
