APARTMENT IN THE BORN

  • 3 of 5
Great location! Right next to the Santa Maria de la Mare in the heart of the Born. Minutes walk to the Picasso Museum, on top of the best dessert place in Barcelona (Bubo) and near great tapas bars. You get the keys from the pharmacy which is open all the time (almost) and we got a second set of keys which was very helpful.
Everything worked well within the apartment - excellent WIFI -- we could not figure out the TV which was probably for the best anyway! Washer-dryer worked, plenty of hot water, and we were able to have tea, snacks etc when needed. Altogether a great escape!

EXCELLENT LOCATION. GREAT FLAT.

  • 4 of 5
This apartment has been well maintained and is well appointed with furniture, kitchen needs and bathroom linens. Even better is the location, with great walking parts of Barcelona just outside the door, restaurant options galore, ease of access. It's in a lively part of town, so expect some noise coming in from outside social activities and street clean-up, but it's not excessive. Only complaint was the double bed was a bit hard, but the twin beds were comfortable and cozy. Very enjoyable stay and we'd come back to this rental.

This renovated apartment is in the historic district; close to many restaurants and bars and within walking distance of all of the main attractions in Barcelona. The owners are very easy to work with and the apartment has everything one needs for a terrific stay in Barcelona.

FABULOUS LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
As two couples, we stayed here for 3 nights and it was absolutely perfect.... Location was ideal, and apartment itself was in great condition. Directions to find it were a little tricky, so make sure you double-check before arrival, but any troubles there were outweighed entirely by the overall great experience.

Thanks to Carmen was being easy and straight-forward to work with!

EXCELLENT APARTMENT IN AN EXCELLENT LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
My sisters, daughter and I stayed at the apartment for 8 nights, selecting it largely based on the great reviews. (Note: the tips left by others were incredibly helpful!) The location of the apartment could not be better. It is minutes away from everything - beach, main artery, large market, museums, etc. and there are great restaurants and shops in the alley surrounding the apartment building. The grocer and produce shops are literally 40 feet from the door, and the best chocolatier in town is directly beneath the building. The kitchen was well supplied for all our cooking and eating needs (even if we did have to run out to buy salt and pepper). Having a washer and dryer in the apartment meant being able to pack lightly for the trip; and laundry detergent was supplied by the owner.

The stairs up to the apartment didn't bother us, but they may not be for everyone. There are also bells of two nearby churches that ring on the hour and quarter hour that some people might find annoying (although they did not ring late at night). The foot traffic/noise outside the window at all hours is going to be an issue just about anywhere in that area, not just at this apartment. Using the fan helped block out some of the noise. The only other suggestion is: if you leave the apartment while someone is still in it, don't forget to take the key to the exterior door as the intercom does not work.

Overall: Any minor inconveniences (and they were minor) were greatly outweighed by the convenience of this great location.

EXCELLENT LOCATION! SOME MINOR HICCUPS.

  • 4 of 5
The location could not be better if you are wanting to experience life in the Ancient part of Barcelona. Numerous shops, restaurants, tourist attractions within 5-15 minute walks. You are also near Metro, Train, and tourist bus stops.

We booked a one-way airport transfer in advance. The service was nice, since we have not been to Spain before, however, we took a cab on our return trip. The easiest and most economical option is really just getting a cab when you arrive, which is quite simple.

The apartment was modern, comfortable, and most importantly, clean. Unfortunately, the Clothes Washer was out of service, which caused some inconvenience for our travelling party. We packed lightly under the impression we could do some laundry. We had to go to a laundromat. Landlord did reimburse for the cost, but still an inconvenience. We had some issues with the in room safe, directions in spanish and could not open it. I would agree with a previous reviewer that a "general information sheet" would be an improvement. I would not recommend this apartment to anyone with Mobility issues. The stairs are narrow and winding to get to the entrance. Once in the apartment, you have use stairs to access the bedrooms. If you are a light sleeper, then Spain may not be the place for you! Street noise and neighbors loud, but I think this is true of all of the areas.

We had a fabulous time in Barcelona and this apartment gave us a more authentic glimpse of the lifestyle than a hotel would have.

Located in El Born, a trendy area full of new designers and cozy restaurants, and near Santa Maria del Mar (Catedral del Mar), Picasso Museum, the old port and the beach. The terms that best describe this apartment are design and comfort. In an ancient building, it was completely renewed 2 years ago and it overlooks a quiet pedestrian street.
