Victor Bello purchased this Apartment in 2001
What makes this Apartment unique
No doubt, the best things of my 2 apartments are the unbeatable location and their terraces. It is really something. It gives you happyness when you are there. Choosing the 'GREEN PENTHOUSE BORN' you will enjoy a 360ª panoramic view of Barcelona center and even farther. From there you can see the amazing Sagrada Familia, the Gotic cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar church, Tibidabo montain, Montjuic montain, Twin Towers, Agbar building, etc... THE WHOLE CITY. In both apartments, it's a great plus enjoying the sun during the day or the stars over your head at dinner time . To have breakfast there is the best way to start knowing the city. At the end of the day, there is no better place to rest!! I love to keep it as nice as possible because it really give me happyness. You will not believe how quiet are both terraces at night... making you feel as you where in some little town of the countryside. Choosing 'THE TRAFALGAR PENTHOUSE' you wiil be abble to see how is a tipical 'patio' of a Eixample cuarter. And you will enjoy a lift. jeje

Enjoyed our visit with our son attending university. Walked to most everything. Very helpful owners. Good communication.
Great location with fun terrace!
My boyfriend and his adult son and his girlfriend spent two weeks in the Trafalgar penthouse in October 2017. The apartment is comfortable and the terrace is fun to enjoy wine and the spirit of the city in the evening. The space is located very close to Metro stops making it convenient to get around the city. It is also close walking distance to many of the local sites and restaurants. We had a wonderful trip. Our host was very helpful.
Great attic apartment in a great location
We had a lovely stay in this apartment. Victor and his associate Flor took very good care of us, from stocking the fridge with some initial supplies, to giving us a tour of the apartment, to checking in on us during our stay to be sure everything fine (which it was), to ordering a taxi for the trip to the airport. Flor even texted me to let me know the taxi was on the way! There are two bedrooms. The one with an AC has two single beds which can be moved together. The other room has a double and a fan (which we found to be comfortable). The kitchen is well-appointed right down to a cork screw. The nespresso makes a pretty darned good espresso. There's a dishwasher and also a washing machine. We were on the 5th floor, but there is an elevator (it stopped working the last couple of days, but wasn't a big deal.) I think if you're unable to climb several flights of stairs you should probably avoid places with small elevators. The outside terrace wraps around the building letting you pick your spot in the shade. There are views but as in the pic beside this review, somewhat restricted. But the location is stellar. You're right by El Born (Victor will tell you about the passage shortcut into the neighborhood. It's a five minute walk to the Arc d' Triumph and 5-10 to the Cathedral and Barri Gotic. There is a supermarket, an organic market, and a French market (if you've just got to have your foi gras) a block away. If you're a runner, you can run to the Arc, then down around the park to the beach. Take a left or a right to run on the boardwalk. It's easy to put together a 10K and fun to run along the beach. You'll probably find yourself stopping to take a picture now and then, but hey, it's a vacation, so you get to pause!
I would definitely recommend this apartment for the hospitality of Victor and Flor, and for the excellent location.
Great location ,all things needed were supplied
Great location the unit is clean and tidy centrally located for easy walks around the gothic area ,the beds are a little hard and the wifi irregular apart from that it did the job nicely
A cute apartment, in a great location. Dont come if you expect a pristine , hotel style environment. Would be good for a family as it has a large outdoor terrace. The apartment is fine as it is, but with a little bit more attention to detail it could be great. Bathroom is basic. We enjoyed walking to many locations from here and having good metro access. Elevator to 3rd floor so you need to be able negotiate two lots of stairs. Access to terrace is by stepping out the window. So again some mobility required for that. Overall a good apartment in a old town location . Very quiet at night. Lounge and one bedroom are air conditioned. Wooden window shutters keep heat out during the day.
The whole experience was perfect. Victor and Flor set the standard for us. Before we even arrived, we received an information packet via email about great restaurants around town, music, and other helpful info about the area. Flor greeted us when we arrived and showed us the property as well as gave great recommendations for food places nearby.
The apartment itself was perfect for our needs. Having a two-year-old, we spent most nap times out on the terrace reading or just chatting and taking in the sun and general ambiance of Barcelona. The kitchen was well stocked with anything we needed for cooking.
We quickly fell in love with Barcelona and loved the location of the apartment. We walked to beautiful Citadel Park a few times and spent time wandering the charming streets in the neighborhood. There's a metro stop just at the end of the street as well as shops, restaurants, and grocery stores nearby. Always something to do.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us!
Area: Santa Caterina-BORN- Urquinaona subway The Born area is opposite the Gothic, separated by the Via Laietana, and next to the Barceloneta, a short walk from the main beaches of the city. Since the 80s the Born has become one of the most artistic and flamboyant city, becoming arguably the most fashionable area of Old Town. The monuments of this district are innumerable - opulent modernism Palau de la Música, the Mercat de Santa Caterina contemporary and gothic splendor of the church of Santa Maria del Mar - and are all within a few minutes walk. Another key attraction of the area is the Picasso Museum exalted. A great advantage is to be located next to the Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can relax so much historic center alleyway. El Born is right in the center of Barcelona and therefore will provide a basis expressive and well placed for exploring the rest of the city. And among all these places of interest, one will enjoy the narrow streets lost iran will discover lovely shops, squares with terraces, or any corner where you get a great picture. And of course the huge gastronomic offer and bars, where to dine or enjoy a delicious Mojito. The Born adjoins the Barceloneta old fishermen district and today posedora of the best beaches in the city. A lovely 25-minute walk from my house, across the harbor and this particular neighborhood, will take you to the beach of Barceloneta. Where you can swim from April until almost November. Thanks to the warm climate of our city.
