The apartment building has been renovated which conserves the historic facade of the ancient Born quarter. The apartment itself is located on the fourth floor of this lovely building. There is no elevator in this building, as is quite common in the old part of Barcelona. From the living/dining area you can look down on a pedestrian street with some great cafes and good restaurants; the master bedroom is to the back of the building and is very quiet .
The bedroom accommodates a double bed and comes with wardrobe and drawers where the guest can put his belongings. The decor is simple.
The living room area has a comfortable sofa, TV, DVD and stereo and is a nice area to sit back in and enjoy some quiet time before heading out to the hustle and bustle of Barcelona.
The kitchen is fully equipped with gaz tops and oven, and all the commonplace items like fridge, pots, pans, coffee machine, fridge and so on. The bathroom comprises of a shower unit.
PLEASE NOTE: this lovely, recently refurbished building is typical of the Borne area in Barcelona, as mentioned above there is NO elevator
The apartment comes with a great private patio/deck terrace which the guests will enjoy most for romantic dinner, relax, sunbating in the heart of Old town!!

I stayed for several weeks in July/August, and the lack of air conditioning was not an issue. Apparently it was a cooler summer than usual though. Regardless, sleeping by the large window in the living room was helpful on the warmest nights. I agree with others that the terrace is the best feature of this apartment.
My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to be in Barcelona for the whole month of December. We were delighted with this sweet apartment - the neighborhood and the great markets nearby. Everything felt within walking distance or within a short metro ride away. We especially liked walking to the sea! We were lucky with mostly sunny weather and enjoyed time spent on the private deck. Carola was incredibly welcoming. We had a few minor things that came up needing fixing and her response time was very fast. We never felt inconvenienced in any way. The stairs are EXCELLENT exercise for those of you looking for that. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen with lunch on the deck. My only suggestion would be for a larger bed, but that's very American of me. There is also a couch that converts to a daybed which we were happy to use on occasion. Gracias Carola!
My wife and I visited Barcelona for the first time on her 30th birthday and stayed in Carola's apartment. This place is really a gem. It is located in the Barri Gotic and from there you are able to walk everywhere you could possibly want - to the beach, L'Eixample, el born. Everything is close. Though the location is good, the best thing by far is the private rooftop terrace. What a great way to unwind at the end of a day; we loved it. Awesome. As far as cons, there were no surprises. The unit is on the fourth floor with no elevator and there is no AC (note: you won't find many original places in such a great part of town that have elevators or central AC) - but those really are minor notes, especially because Carola was very open with the information before we booked. The apartment was great and we would definitely stay there again. Thanks for a great experience!
We had a wonderful stay in Barcelona, the apartment had everything we needed, the best bit was the lovely private terrace to eat sunbath and totally relax after a long day exploring barcelona. The apartment is situated within walking distance to all areas of the city but quiet and peaceful. We travelled from the airport by aerobus brilliant only 5.65 Euros straight to Catalunya plaza then a 5 min walk to the apartment buses run to airport every 10 mins great. We would highly recommend this apartment the owner Carola was exremely helpful with lots of tips and advice. Thanks again two happy holidaymakers.
We had a great stay in Barcelona and the apartment had a lot to do with it. We were met by the owner who gave us a good rundown of the apartment and the to do's in the area which started our vacation on the right foot. The strengths of the apartment were the location and the porch which were perfect. The Rambla area of Barcelona is certainly vibrant but the area around the apartment is fantastic. We wandered each night for supper and found great squares full of tables and great meals. We relaxed with a bottle of Cava on the deck before going out which was also lovely.
The only warning I would have to someone thinking about renting the apartment pertains to the stairs. It is on the top floor and there is no lift. If that doesn't bother you, and it was no bother to us, then it is a great place to stay.
Carola's apartment is a fabulous place for a couple who wishes to visit Barcelona, stay in a very central location but without all the noise of crowd or traffic. The location is close to all major tourists attractions and has a sunny rooftop terrace. Thanks for the opportunity to stay at your place and for the all the great tips about what to visit and mostly where to eat!
