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

Perfect Apartment, Location and Host

  • 5 of 5
The Borne Glamour apartment is absolutely perfect for larger groups. There are 5 comfortable, nicely appointed bedrooms that we had 4 teenage girls and 3 female adults in. The bathrooms are very modern with good water pressure for showers. The kitchen has everything you need and large frig which was useful since we cooked breakfast in everyday. There is lots of dishes/silverware/pots for large groups as well. There is dual unit air conditioning in the large apartment to keep all guests happy. The washer/dryer was an added bonus that we ended up using. The wifi is great. Horacio also provided free international calling. What more could you want??? The location is spectacular. 10 minute walk to La Rambla or Barcelona beach. There are wonderful cafe's just outside the apartment. The grocery store is around the block as well as the bank to get cash. Horacio is a spectacular host. He brought over a bottle of wine and some delicious Spanish ham as a gift. Horacio made himself available our entire stay and also gave good recommendations for things to see and do. He was there to greet us exactly the time he said. The only small warning for the guests is there is a cocktail bar across the street that can make it a bit loud in the wee hours of the morning but only for the 3 bedrooms facing the street. The internal bedroom guests heard nothing at night. However, that is to be expected with having such a central location for an apartment. And maybe some better kitchen knives would be helpful. Overall, it was a fabulous experience with this apartment. Highly recommended.

Convenient, Clean and Comfortable apartment in hea

  • 5 of 5
I searched high and low all over the net for a place in Barcelona to house 6 adults and 4 children and was fortunate to come across this apartment. Upon arrival, a car was arranged for the 8 of us whilst the 2 of us took the train to França train station that is only 4 minutes walk to the apartment. The cab driver had no trouble at all locating the address - Plaza Commercial. Was walking around looking for the place when Horacio, the owner of the place, 'found' us (as the others were already in the apartment). It is not a huge place but the layout made it seem so. It has 5 very spacious rooms - all well decorated, with big closets and most importantly clean. The beds were comfortable enough as well. The entire place was also well equipped with full kitchen setup, laundry area and most importantly 2 toilets with bath (for the 10 of us!) The location is a 10 mins walk to Ramblas Area and only 15 minutes to Barceloneta beach. Horacio was kind enough to point us in the directions of the great eateries in the area such as Llamber and El Foro. May i add great and affordable. :) All in all a great place at a great price with a very hospitable host... We hope to be back next year!

Good apartment for family

  • 5 of 5
The flat was spacious, clean and well equipped and we had a good welcome when we arrived and a thorough explanation, also a prompt response when we phoned asking for help with something. We found the location good for staying with children as it is very close to Parc de la Ciutadella (5-10 minute walk). I would recommend this apartment to people who are travelling in a family group. Points to be aware of: although there is a lift in the building, the flat is on the half-landing before the lift arrives at the first floor, so you do have to go up a few stairs to get to it. There are 5 bedrooms two of which face the inner courtyard so there is no problem with noise at all in those. If you are a light sleeper you might be woken by noise from passers-by in one of the other three but my daughter didn't ever get woken up and she had a room facing the street.

Owner's Response: Dear Lucy and family I am happy that you enjoyed your visit to Barcelona and that you were comfortable in my apartment, many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with my future guests. I would consider this apartment very quiet for being very central if you compare it to any apartment located in the Eixample where there is lot of noise coming from the traffic, but not here as it is a pedestrian area.

Hope to see soon back in Barcelona, Best regards Horacio

Location, location, location!Ideal choice

  • 5 of 5
This large comfortable apartment in El Born was an ideal choice for our multigeneration family vacation. The description was accurate and exactly as expected- large, comfortable apartment with 5 nicely appointed bedrooms and two modern bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and would have been easy to prepare a gourmet meal, except there were so many wonderful cafes and tapas bars nearby that it was not necessary to cook at all. The property was very clean and well maintained. The host and his assistant provided wonderful customer service, sending us a detailed listing of things to do in the area, restaurant recommentdations, tour suggestions and tips, and also arranged a taxi for us for the early morning departure that we had. I would highly recommend this apartment for large groups or families traveling together. The location in El Born is ideal for exploring this neighborhood and the Barri Gothic and a quick taxi ride to La Sagrada Familia, and Park Guell. It's also a short walk to Barceloneta. A nice surprise was the archeological museum across the street which houses the remains of a market from the 1700's. Charming, clean, fabulous location, cheerful decor- all in all I would highly recommend!

Great location, easy to get around, nice apartment

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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

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.
