Nous avons bien reçu hier le montant de la caution via paypal et nous vous remercions pour la rapidité de cet envoi .

Nous avons bien apprécié ce sejour: votre appartement est très bien situé , bien equipé , fonctionnel et esthétique .

La mer , le beau temps et les monuments de Barcelone nous ont ravi .

Le seul petit regret est de ne pas vous avoir vu quelques minutes autour d un petit verre pour faire connaissance et nous parler un tout petit peu de votre ville .

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Wife and I (mid-70's)stayed at the El Born apartment for a week in early December-a great time to visit with beautiful weather and no crowds. The apartment was spacious, quiet, clean, and secure. It was furnished with high quality furniture and appliances. The couch, lounge, and bed were comfortable. The Bosch washer/dryer were the best of any of our European apartment rentals. The location was excellent and we walked to many sites. Ed/Carmen provided excellent communication with easy payment and deposit refund.
We bought our American "stuff" (milk, cereal, etc.) at the recommended De TotAl Born Supermarket. The closeby Santa Caterina Mercado provided wonderful cheese, bread, ham, fresh fruit. We got our T-10 Metro passes at the Jaume Metro. The TI at Plaza de Jaume provided lists/tickets for current concerts. Our best meal in Spain was a wonderful seafood dinner at La Mar Salada (75 euros-but great food, service, location). If a senior don't get an Artnet card as most museums have a senior discount. If you are an independent traveler who does not need a tour guide with a flag and have the time to plan your trip this apartment is an excellent choice.We plan to return in 2014 and see some Barcelona FC "futbol" matches.

Nice but noisy.

  • 2 of 5
The appartment is well designed and comes complete with everything you could possibly need for a stay in this great city. Everything is nearby due to it's excellent location so you don't have far to walk to take in all the famous places this city has to offer. Also the TV is a larger one than in the photos and you can get several English speaking channels.

Would I stay here again? Most definately not.The description of the apartment says it overlooks a quiet street which is traffic free. Completely untrue as there was so much noise from a bar downstairs on the next block until 1;45 am and the street-cleaning vans working until 2.45 am. This happened every night apart from one during our stay. I accept that in a city there will be noise but the issue was compounded by the windows in the property. They and the frames were made of wood with no sealing on any of them. Surely double/triple glazing would solve this problem. It's hard to believe that only one other review mentions the noise as if there had been more I would not have booked this apartment.

Owner's Response: We only reply to reviews in very few occasions: most of the time the reviews are very good, but even when they are not so good we feel that our prospective customers deserve a direct opinion from previous customers without a counter-review from our part.
Nevertheless, we feel that this review is extremely unfair and requires a reply.
The description we provide for the apartment states the truth: "it overlooks a quiet street with traffic restrictions". However, the reviewer changed it to "a quiet street which is traffic free". We would never say that the street is traffic free, because it is not. Rather, traffic in the street (and the whole area) is restricted – to neighbours and city services. Also mentions that a supposed "noise generating bar" is "downstairs on the next block". This is correct as it is not in our block. These are the facts. The flat is located in a core area, lively, full of shops, restaurants and bars. We are somewhat confused that this would come as a surprise to the customer as this is precisely one of the best features of the apartment, and we clearly advertise this. The window frames in the flat are indeed made of wood. This is mandatory in the older building of this preserved part of the city. The do however have double glazing. They have the best possible insulation subject to preserving the aesthetics of neighbourhood, which is key to make it enjoyable to our visitors.
His final comment is very illustrative: "It's hard to believe that only one other review mentions the noise". We had many hundreds of happy customers who have stay in that place since 2004.
That raises a question: Why do people come to Barcelona? And why do they choose to stay in El Born, on of the preferred and most sought-after locations in the city?
One thing is sure: You should not come to Barcelona if you are expecting the quiet atmosphere of a small village. This is not what Barcelona is. Barcelona is a very lively city. This is its best feature. If you visit Barcelona you should expect a mixture of excitement, authenticity, amusement and a characteristic ambient that El Born fully provides.
The customer complains about the key features of the area, and those that have been the key to revitalizing the old parts of cities worldwide to make them fashionable and attractive. You need to make these areas clean and safe. To make them clean, you need cleaning services. To make them safe, you promote a lively atmosphere and people in the streets, day and n

EXCELLENT SEJOUR A BARCELONE

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement. Il est spacieux, propre, et très confortable, tout à fait conforme aux photographies. L'équipement est très complet, rien ne manque, tout a été pensé pour que l'on s'y sente bien.
Le quartier est agréable,animé et surtout très central, à proximité des Ramblas et du bord de mer, pas besoin de prendre le bus, on peut tout faire à pied.
Nous n'avons que des compliments à faire sur cet appartement et nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Carmen's apartment for one week. It is a clean and modern apartment and has everything we needed. The WiFi was also very fast!

The queen size bed was comfortable and firm, which was important to us because we prefer firm beds. She also has extra comforters in case the weather is cold.

The bathroom and shower were clean. The hot water and water pressure in the shower were tolerable, not great, the same as other apartments we've rented in historical areas of Europe.

The neighborhood is lively where the restaurants and stores stay open late. We were able to satisfy our gelato ice cream cravings every night before we went to sleep.

Carmen and her husband Ed were very responsive by email and answered all of our questions in a timely manner.

It can sometimes be difficult trying to rent an apartment halfway around the word. You never know whether the person on the other side is trustworthy or not. Rest assured that Carmen is the real deal. She is indeed a responsible and trustworthy person.

I highly recommend Carmen and this apartment!

Perfect appartment!!

  • 5 of 5
It was not our first time in Barcelona but it surely was the best one and this thanks to this great appartment situated in the center of el Born. The appartment is exactly as shown on the pictures and bears everything you may need, even a free w-LAN connection! Leaving the appartment you are directly in the district of el Born with its favolous bars and tapas-restaurants, some minutes of walk and you reach the gothic district, las ramblas or the beach, we never needed any bus or metro.
Carmen, the owner, is always reachable by Email and answered all our questions promptly..Even when we needed help for a transport to the AirPort on our depart, during a general strike in Barcelona.
We highly recommend this appartment and will surely return in the future.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment had everything we needed! My husband and I were traveling with our 11 month old baby, and the apartment was perfect for us. There was lots of room for our son to play and it was the perfect location, being so close to everything.
I am so happy we decided to stay in this apartment instead of a hotel.

The location can’t be better, it is just about five minutes walk from Las Ramblas and about five minutes walk to the old port of Barcelona on the sea. The district is the well-known EL BORN, a trendy area full of new design shops and cosy restaurants and pubs. All the area around is pedestrian. Just a few meters from the Picasso Museum in Montcada street and also to Mercat Santa Catalina where you have an amazing variety of fresh products such as fish and fruit, and also very close to Barcelona Cathedral and Palau de la Musica

On the other hand, in contrast with its historic location, the apartment is new and has all the comfort that the modern home features provide
