This is a 3 bedroomed apartment (2 doubles and a single) located in the heart of the Old Town. It has got 2 double bedrooms, one of them very spacious and facing 2 streets, and a single and all rooms are fully AC, it also has got a large equipped kitchen integrated in the living room, a large double seater sofa, a walk in shower in a spacious bathroom and all mod cons like a washing machine, WiFi and satellite tv. It affords a view of a typical Born street. Its best advantage is certainly its location, as it is in the heart of one of the founding neighbourhoods of the city, the Born. It is right at the back of Picasso Museum and Barcelona's most beautiful Gothic cathedral, the Santa Maria del Mar is also in 2 minutes walk. Also, in 5 min walk you find the Gothic Quarter, the Cathedral, the modernist Palace of Music, the monument of Arc Triomf, the biggest park in town with the Zoo within, ruins, Picasso Museum, the 2nd oldest food markets, 2 different metro lines and the train direct to the airport.
In 10 min walk you find: the beach, the Port, the 2 main shopping streets and the most famous avenue avenue in town (Rambles).
The apartment is located in the trendiest area, the Born with its narrow streets and alleyways, little leafy squares, art galleries and museums and the greatest restaurant concentration in town.
My name is Carlos and I am from Barcelona. I love the Old Town of the city, as it is where the city originated and it has a wealth of history and happening things all at your doorstep.
Carlos purchased this apartment in 2012
This apartment is located right in the heart of Born, the trendiest area in town and within walking distance to most sights and equally, it has the highest concentration of restaurants in the city and the Picasso Museum is right behind.
Being located right at the back of Picasso Museum and Santa Maria del Mar Gothic church you live in the middle of history and are in walking distance to most sites, as in this part of the city, all the sights are concentrated.
Stayed here Oct 4-11. Our family of 5: 3 adults and 2 children ages 8 and 11 stayed in this flat which is located near everything you need. Wonderful nearby restaurants and cafe's, lovely boutiques and markets. Plenty of exercise on the narrow stairs to the 4th floor flat which allowed us to indulge in pastries from Hoffman's bakery right down the street. The washing machine is very helpful when traveling with children. It did get very warm- up to 79 F so we needed the AC to cool the apartment but the small room with bunks was a bit stuffy. we opened the window and used the fan. Unfortunately the lower bunk still did not get enough airflow, so we moved our son onto the floor in the master bedroom and he slept fine. AC in the two larger bedrooms was great. The shower still needs fixing but still usable. Despite these minor flaws, I would stay in this flat again: Beds are comfortable, kitchen has everything we needed, bathroom is clean and modern, it is spacious enough that everyone could have some privacy and most importantly the location is unbeatable. Excellent Tapas Bars, especially Taperia on Princessa and Saboc near Carrer del Rec, Demasie for coffee and pastries in morning was open slightly earlier than other cafes. There is a cafe just a few feet away from the flat but was not open before 9am. Museo de Xocolat the park are a few blocks away- another great aspect for children that need some running space. The Market del Born is now a cultural exhibit and sheds light on the the historical development of the area and the tyrannical times under Franco. Saturday and Sunday are great for the Artisan markets and for a pick up game of football with some local children. easy access to the Metro which took us all over the city. Also the Tourist "hop-on-hop off" buses pick up near the Santa Catarina market. and will take you past the breathtaking Gaudi sites that are a must see Not too close to the very touristy La Rambla but close enough to walk there to enjoy the street performers. Too relax- enjoy a mojito on the beach and if it's too warm- just remove your top!
Carlos gave guidance for taking the taxi from the airport to the flat- unfortunately I lost the directions in Spanish but our driver found our way. Guillermo waited patiently to meet us as there was a slight delay out of the airport. He was most helpful and gracious. He has plenty of tips from what sites to visit and how to access them,the nearest grocery and a taxi for departure
This apartment has the best location ever, we have just come home from a five day trip to this city that has everything, from culture to the beach to history to the most varied foods. The apartment is great, the bedrooms are very well decorated and comfortable. The living area, has everything a holiday maker needs, (but has only one seat for relaxing on). The kitchen area is really well equiped, as is the laudry area. There was a few problems with the shower when we stayed, which we feel should have been fixed before we arrived. We were met by Guillermo, who has to be the most knowledgeable and passionate person Barcelona could ever have, his information and tips about the city made our holiday really enjoyable, he is a true treasure!! I would recommend this apartment to everyone, except those who are not able to handle the 7 flights of very steep narrow, but very historic stairs. To stay in the heart of this vibrant and historic city, is an experience everyone should have once in their lives, we loved it and can't wait to come back,
This appartment is very well located in the heart of the old town and the Born district. The size of the appartment is great by European standard: we were 3 adults and 2 children and we had plenty of space. Air conditionning was a must and they were working fine.
Carlos and Diego provided us with great recommendation on the resauants in the area. They have also been very helpful in helping me recuparae a lost luggage and confirming a cab to go back to the airport.
We had an amazing time in Barcelona and the location of the appartment was definitely a part of it! Thank you very much to both of you!

Нам очень понравилась квартира, отличное состояние и прекрасное распложение в самом центре Барселоны, район Борн. В округе много кафе, ресторанов и маленьких улочек для прогулок. Хозяева очень доброжелательные и приятные. Отличный опыт, который я всем рекомендую. Виктория
The apartment is located at the heart of one of the founding neighbourhoods of Barcelona, at the Born district. It is the neighbourhood with the highest concentration of restaurants and museums in the city, so you'll be in the middle of it all.
