“Maria and Jose's apartment was very good for me. I traveled to Barcelona for working and had a quiet apartment to comfort when I came back. It is a very well equipped apartment with nice atmosphere and good connections to the center. Nice neighbourhood. I could met them in Vienna and they are very nice, responsible and also ready to help.”
Maria's reviewsAs a host (4)
“We were very nervous before our first Home exchange, but thanks to Maria we had the best holiday we could ever imagine. The apartment was modern, clean, spacious and had everything we needed- and more! TV, computer, fully equipped kitchen, renovated bathroom, extra bedroom and a washing machine. Along with all that the apartment was very close to the metro and the big train station. All in walk distance! It is also very close to shopping malls and various tourist attractions, but yet it is not in the middle of everything which is really nice when you want some peace and quiet. It is a lovely neighborhood as well with families and children were you feel safe and welcome as a tourist. We can really recommend an exchange with Maria in Barcelona, her great hospitality and experience will give you a fantastic holiday you will never forget.”
“We had a wonderful stay in Marias calm and nice apartment in a great location in Barcelona - just 15 min from the Rambla and 20 min from the Barceloneta. The area is great located and very close to a big marked with fresh fish, vegetables and Spanish specialties. Maria is a sweet and helpful host, who knows her neighborhood and really knows how to recommend the best restaurants and great places to see. We highly recommend Maria and her apartment. We loved to water her homegrown tomatoes and fresh herbs, and would love to do it again.”
“María is a young architect and she has recently refurbished this large, spacious, bright and super-clean two-bedroom apartment. This is a fully equipped flat with a modern bathroom and kitchen (everything in the apartment is new), all kinds of kitchen appliances, flat screen TV, Internet access... basically all we needed for a pleasant stay in Barcelona. The apartment is in a safe area, very close to the subway and train stations (trains to the airport and other interesting locations and beach resorts such as Sitges). Unlike some parts of Barcelona which can be too noisy at night, the flat is located in a quiet street. You will find all kinds of stores in the area, a supermarket across the street and a local market nearby. You can also walk to many of the tourist attractions. Our exchange was simultaneous, so her family was available during our stay in case we needed something. We also loved the atmosphere in the restaurants and "tapas" bars close to the apartment. In sum, this is a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing.”
Where is it?
The Sants neighbourhood is quite central and very well connected. Is situated just beside Plaça Espanya and the Olimpic Stadium area with such interesting museums and sites as MNAC, CaixaForum, Joan Miro Foundation and L.Mies Van Der Rohe pavillion.
The neighbourhood also gives the name to the biggest train and bus station of Barcelona, 5 minuts walking from the house, and from where you can get all around the Catalan Coast (Sitges, Salou, Tarragona...) and also mid distance and long distance trains to Valencia, Zaragoza, Madrid, Bilbao...
The area is also connected to 3 metro lines L1, L3 & L5 and many buses direct to the old city town and other interesting areas. L1 Hostafrancs stop is less than 5 minuts walking and in 8 minutes arrives to Plaça Catalunya, the big central main Square of Barcelona.
