We loved the central location as you can walk to most of everything you want to see in Barcelona or take the tram. The apartment itself is wonderful. A big thank you to Marcel for his restaurant recommendations and orienting us to grocery stores and other essentials. It made arriving so much easier.
This apartment is located right in the heart of El Born, near shops, restaurants, bakeries, The Picasso Museum and Santa Maria del mar. It is a short walk to the beach, metro stop and Gotic Quarter. The building has an elevator (you have to walk up a couple of short flights of stairs to access the elevator). It is cozy, comfortable and secure (alarm system and locked door from street). Kitchen has some basic equipment and it is a tiny space with a 2-burner stove so you may find it easiest to go to the many wonderful restaurants in the neighborhood. The Santa Maria market has some prepared foods so that makes it quite easy. We did jamon, cheese and cava on the balcony for dinner one night as well as croissants (from Hofmanns) for breakfast. The only problem we ran into is that there is not a dryer and in December we had a difficult time getting our clothes dry outdoors. It would not be as much of a problem in warmer weather or for shorter stays. Flavia and Antonio were extremely helpful and easy to work with. I cannot imagine a better location if you want to experience old town and all it's delights.
