I enjoyed staying at Maria’s place. Her house is very clean and in an excellent location. Maria is very helpful and very charming. She helped me with my Spanish, called people on my behalf to book restaurants and vacation. I really want to thank her in my review and really recommend her place to all home stay guests.
The apartment is spotless and comfortable. 40 minutes from the door to barcelona, and walking distance to the autonomous university.
Je recommande aux personnes de passer un séjour chez Rosa maria qui est très agréable pendant le séjour et importante pour de nombreux conseils pour visiter ou déjeuner .
Elle peut aussi vous rendre service pour vos déplacement, allez vous cherchez ou ramener à l'aeroport. Le petit déjeuner est proposé si on le souhaites.
Une piscine pour se rafraîchir les fins de journée.
Voilà à une prochaine fois
I had a great time with Malia! She prepared me a beautiful breakfast every morning, and cooked some typical dishes at dinner. I enjoyed talking with her so much! Her house is around 10mins by bus from the UAB, and we can go to the city center by bus and train easily, so I think the location is perfect. I want to stay there again! Thank you
I loved every minute of staying with Maria Rosa. She is the perfect hostess with a super clean and wonderful home, rooms and bathroom. Traveling to down town Barcelona is very easy from her home by bus and train. she has a fabulous swimming pool and serves freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast. she is a sweet lady and her home is beautiful
I stayed at Maria's home for about 3 weeks & had to the best time. Maria has a wealth of knowledge of Barcelona and it's surrounding areas. She always has the best information on how to make your trip even more memorable than what you may have planned. Her home is immaculate, quiet, well kept and best of all near one of the most exciting cities in the world. I highly recommend this location for anyone who wants to experience Barcelona in its most authentic way.
My stay with Maria Rosa was perfect in every way. I highly recommend her as your hostess in Cataluña. You will love everything about her home and it's location.
