Fabulous apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A really great apartment - well placed for accessing all the sights and just a short stroll from the Ramblas, the beach, port vell and the metro for getting to other parts of the city. The apartment had everything we needed and we loved the terrace for an al fresco breakfast and for chilling after a long day exploring the sights. Absolutely nothing not to like!! Thank you Lucas and Flavia

Owner's Response: Thank you Joanna, very pleased that you enjoyed the penthouse. The terraces are sure the best after a long day walking in the city with confortable armchairs to relax and enjoy the view. If the church is lighted during the night is the best. Hope next time you come back to Barcelona, will contact me and thank you for having selected my apartment fior your stay in the Barcelona. All the best F.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in an excellent location. El Born is a great neighborhood. We also found cabs were very reasonable when we traveled further especially if where we were going wasn't close to a subway stop.

The apartment has everything you need to have a wonderful time in Barcelona. We ate out on the main patio for all our meals except when it was raining.

The only drawback is shown in the first picture. The bedroom is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. If you need to use the bathroom at night you must go down and up those rather steep stairs. We left a small light on downstairs. That really helped. Be sure to shut the metal blinds in the bedroom. The church across the way starts the bells back up at 7 AM.

We highly recommend this apartment.

Fabulous old town apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I lived in Greenwich Village in New York City for many many years, so when I found this sweet apartment I was excited to surprise my husband. He was extremely pleased when he walked into the apartment and we sat on the balcony looking out at the church and listening to all the bustle and people below. He especially enjoyed being able to go down to the street and find his breads and cheeses and sausages and coffee and all the wonderful things to eat found in the many shops just a few steps or blocks from the apartment. Centrally located in the heart of the old town, it was wonderful to be able to walk to the museums, to the shops, to the sea. We especially enjoyed hearing the faint but detectable sound of the church bells as the clock struck on the quarter hour, half hour, three-quarter hour and hour. It reminded us of our days in Greenwich Village and we cherish our memories of this beautiful apartment. I do agree with the previous comment that the one thing I would advise is that you keep the downstairs light on in the evening so if you do you have to get up and go downstairs to use the bathroom, your way will be well lit. We spent many mornings and evenings sitting on the balconies and enjoying the delicious energy of the people, sights, sounds and food Barcelona and the old town has to offer. Being able to see the basilica up close was a treat, and I still can't decide whether I liked it better in daylight or lit up in the evenings. I did have a couple of questions, and was able to email Flavia and get a response very quickly. We were able to cook our meals there if we wanted to and I did make delicious fresh fish one evening that we got from the Saint Catherine market, which you can walk to. The market is a mere 10 minutes from the apartment. It's so wonderful to go walk into that market and see the fresh meats, fish, vegetables, desserts. Our deposit was also returned promptly, arriving as a credit in my account less than two weeks after our return. All in all, a wonderfully memorable experience. I encourage you to rent this apartment, so you too can experience its charm, and leave with a wonderful memory of the old town of El Born, Barcelona. Thank you Flavia!

Beautiful Barcelona Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful accommodation for a fabulous visit in Barcelona. The suite was well appointed with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. It was clean, comfortable and lovely with the two floors. We found the stairs manageable although took caution when using at night. The two patios were private and a welcome place to relax after a long day of sight seeing. The location could not have been safer and the location perfect for ease of travel to all of the sights, restaurants and shops.

A team member was waiting for us at the door to let us into the apartment and helped carry our bags to the first floor elevator and explained all aspects of the rental unit on our arrival. Flavia and her team were most helpful during a small incident with a door lock jam and was available immediately when called. Her return of the damage deposit was quick and in full.

We loved Barcelona and our stay at this beautiful penthouse and would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and well situated accommodation.
