Hola!

I am a Spanish interior designer who loves to travel! I love finding new cafes, reading the paper on a sunny Sunday and... the sea! The designer shop around the corner and a good movie on a weekend make me happy.

I have been travelling since I was very little and I like to feel like at home, I always thought hotels could be impersonal so travelling to homes is a better option! :)

I hope you enjoy my place and the trendy and charming Born area!!!

Horacio

Horacio purchased this apartment in 2010

I have being looking to buy a property in the Born area for a long time and I was really lucky when a friend of mine told me about this apartment.It is so hard to find a nice apartment in this area. People living in the Born do not want to move away. This is the best area to live in Barcelona with all the pedestrian streets, sunny squares where to enjoy a cafe and you really feel like in a neighborhood with all the services at your doorstep, no need to go characterless moll centers when you are surrounded by so many unique design shops and little grocery places and artist ateliers. I loved when first saw it, having no neighbors in the same floor, with an interior patio perfect for a little garden and with 3 double bedrooms overlooking a pedestrian street with so many boutiques and original shops it was really a dream, On top the apartment is between two other listed building with half a meter brick walls so its really quiet and never hear any noise from other neighbors.

The only pity I wish I could have a terrace but that would be the paradise!!!1

Being in a stone's throw from most sights and various underground stops, plus stepping into history tracing back to the Middle Ages. Equally, the highest concentration in town of restaurants is at your doorstep, the Born, as well as the main commercial centers and independent shops. Finally, but not least, the beach is in 15 minutes walk from the apartment

Great location, easy to get around, nice apartment

Very nice place. Horacio, the owner, was exceptional as he spent a good deal of time on ideas to explore Barcelona. Easy communication and payments. Place was clean, nice bedrooms and kitchen. Wifi speed was very good and there were many restaurants, bars, and places to see near by with fairly easy walking distance to Las Ramblas and other areas. There is some street noise on a couple of the front bedrooms but value compared to other places and location easily makes up for it. Would definately stay again.

Fantastic location, comfortable apartment

The apartment is in a fantastic location in a pedestrianised area with lots of restaurants, bars 2 minutes from the door. Five good-sized bedrooms, good kitchen facilities. The living space is comfortable but not large. Horacio was very helpful with lots of local knowledge and taking delivery of something for us. Highly recommended. Local restaurant Llamber pricier than others but very good food and drinks.
Owner's Response: Dear Helen and family,
many thanks again for booking my Born Glamour apartement in the heart of the Born neighborhood for your visit to Barcelona and taking the time to write a review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the area and you felt comfortable in the apartment.

As you say I wish the living room was a bit bigger, but I believe the good size of the 5 bedrooms and the spacious closets make up a little bit for it.

I am sure anybody visiting the area will love the tons of quality restaurants such as the Llamber, that you mentioned, the Big fish with its sumptuous design or famous tapas Bar Cal Pep.

I look forward to meeting you back in Barcelona, you are always welcome.

Kindest regards Horacio

Amazingly located and spacious apartment

  • Submitted: Apr 2, 2013

The apartment is situated in one of the coolest areas in Barcelona, the Born district. There are a variety of great cafes and bars around which you should definitively check out. You are also just a stone throw from the Picasso museum and other great tourist spots.

The apartment itself is very spacious (we were there with a party of 5) and has comfortable good sized beds. As you would expect there is a TV, Wifi and a well equipped kitchen. Moreover, the person who we interacted with, Horacio, was as nice as one can be. He helped us out with some excellent suggestions and recommendations. He was also very flexible when it came to check-in and check-out times which took a lot of stress out of our last day.

The only downside to the apartment could be that it's on the 4th floor and has no elevator. I personally liked the work out.
Owner's Response: Dear Omid,
thank you so much for booking my loft apartment for your visit to Barcelona and for taking the time to write a review.

Unfortunately this review has been posted on another apartment that is a large 5 double bedrooms also in the heart of the Gothic area just in front of the Born Market surrounded by pedestrian streets. But this one is located in a first floor and has a lift.

I have asked Homeaway to delete the review on to post it in the right apartment but so far nothing have been done.

I look forward to meeting you back again in Barcelona.

Best regards Horacio

We used this flat for our company trip to Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress. We stayed 8 people comfortable in this apartment and it fulfilled all of our expectations we had.

Horacio was a gracious and helpful host and made our stay easy and simple.

I can truly recommend this host and apartment.

Fantastic Apartment

We came to Barcelona for my mums 70th birthday, and were a family group of 10, ranging from 5 yrs upto 70.
This apartment was perfect for our needs and couldn't have been in a better location. It was close to shops, restaurants, buses, underground, the beach, zoo and much more, that everyone could easily walk to. The children loved the beach and zoo, and we went on the hop on hop off bus which was excellent for seeing all the sites in a large group.
We found the apartment clean, and well equiped for if we fancied a night in, and there were lots of towels and bedding available.Horacio was very welcoming and helpful, providing us with details of places to visit, and I would definately recommend this apartment to friends.

Born Glamour Holiday apartment in Barcelona is in the heart of El Born without a doubt the trendiest Barcelona neighborhood, It’s an off-beat and fashionable area that offers up some of the city’s best art galleries, funky boutique shopping, and simply excellent, bars, clubs, and tapas.

The architecture and winding streets will take your breath away.

Very centrally located El Borne is nestled between the Gothic Quarter and arguably the city’s most relaxing and enjoyable green spaces called Parc Ciutadela.

The Borne was alive and well in the medieval times. It was a bustling area actually, as it was in close proximity to the port and many traders became rich and built palaces that can still be seen today on Calle Montcada.

Over the last 30 years the Borne has turned into the fantastically fashionable neighborhood you see today

It’s kept it’s medieval dress but has gotten quite a few new accessories such as Picasso Museum, Palau de la Musica, the church of Santa Maria del Mar.

Golf: the property is located in a residential building - only mature people under 35 y. are accepted, parties, loud music and similar are not allowed. No pets.
