FANTASTIC APARTMENT IN AN UNBEATABLE LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic apartment in an unbeatable location. 5 mins walk from train station (25 mins from the airport) and right in the heart of the old town. Loads of great bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The apartment is spacious, clean, airy and really comfortable. Would definitely recommend, and will definitely return.

GREAT APARTMENT, FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 8 days and loved it. The apartment was clean and comfortable. There was lots of room and it was cool even on the hottest days. All of the appliances worked well and were better than expected. We used the kitchen appliances and the washing machine and had no problems. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet at night.
As nice as the apartment was, the best part was the location. The Born is a great place to stay. There are many cozy restaurants, shops and markets all around. It is a vibrant area, but not too crazy. The courtyard down the block comes alive each night with people eating and drinking outside. Walk a few blocks and you are in the heart of the Barri Gòtic neighborhood with even more restaurants and shops. On the other side of that you have La Ramblas, with even more.
You can also walk to the beaches from the apartment. It takes about 20 minutes and we did that several times. We were able to go to the beaches, museums, some amazing restaurants, shops and markets all by walking. When we did want to go further it was very easy to take the subway or catch a taxi from a block or two away.
You can also rent bikes very easily. There were a few bike rental shops in the Born that rented bikes from very low prices. The city bikes can't be used by tourists, but that turned out not to be a problem. Barcelona has many bike paths and it was easy to get anywhere by bike. I rented a bike each morning and rode down to the beaches and along the waterfront.
As other reviewers have mentioned, you do have the stairs to deal with. But it wasn't that big of a deal and I'd put up with that any day to stay in this amazing apartment.
Some tips: Many of the excellent tapas restaurants nearby are take-out as well as eat-in. When the tables were all taken we would just fill up boxes with delicious tapas and enjoy them in the apartment. Souvenir shops in the area always haggle with you. If you don't like haggling, all you need to do is show an interest in something and then walk out. They will offer you a better price as you leave. You'd be amazed at how low they go sometimes.
I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment. I hope one day to return.

A GREAT BASE FOR A BARCELONA TRIP

  • 5 of 5
I don't think you could ask for a better location than this - in the heart of the Gothic quarter in the tiny historic streets. There are bars and restaurants everywhere and transport further afield is easy. Train from the airport with one change gets you to Estacio Franca - only 5 minutes walk away.

The flat was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. There was some street noise at night but it didn't bother me - if you stay in the heart of a city you don't come for tranquility.

All considered - hard to fault.

NICE LARGE APARTMENT IN THE CENTRE OF BARCELONA

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here with 5 people. The Apartment is large and offers enough luxery to enjoy a comfortble stay. It is spacious, has french baclonies all around and was clean and cool. (mid summer)
The fifth bed was realy bad, It urgenly needs a better matras.
The badroom was excelent , only a pitty there was only one Toilet which was also located within that badroom.

It is on the 3rd floor but after taking the stairs it feels like it is on the 6th floor, steep and narrow. The roof terras is excelent (only 2 stairs up) , but furniture on the terras needs attention!
Can advice the apartment if you want to stay in the very centre of Barcelona and don't mind climbing stairs.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is great! We spent 2 weeks in Barcelona and we had a wonderfull time. Me & my daughters loved the huge bathroom with 2 showers, the open kitchen and the comfortable sofa. The roof terrace is great at night after a hot summer day. In the neighborhood are good restaurants, famous museums and a market with delicious fresh food. We didn't need a car and walked to the beach in 15 minutes, we rent bicycles for sightseeing. We enjoyed our stay and we would rent the apartment again when we come back.
Thanks to Claire for the perfect organization.

Right near metro Jaume I at one end and Parc Cituadella at the other, El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city. Every day the cafes are packed and at night people move along to Passeig de Born to sample the many bars, all of which serve up a mean mojito, don't forget to stop at the famous Cava bar! El Born isn’t just about the nightlife, there is plenty of culture to be had as well. Medieval, winding streets, home to the Picasso museum and the Textile Museum which has a great little café with a terrace attached to it and the Santa Maria Cathedral which you can wander around in and maybe even catch a wedding, to name but a few. Other points of interest in the area are the many tapas bars lining C./ Argenteria, the arab baths at Passeig Picasso and the Gaudi inspired Parc Cituadella. You can also walk to the beach too in about 15 minutes! Nearest metro is JAUME I, which is about 3 minutes walk from the apartment. www.bcnbound.com more info.
