Patricia purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Patricia chose Ciutat Vella

About El Born:

Many of the buildings date from late Medieval times. Notable buildings are the Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar and the palaces along Carrer de Montcada, including the Museu Picasso, the Museu Barbier-Mueller d'Art Precolombí, and part of the Textile Museum. Another place of interest is the Fossar de les Moreres, the site of a mass grave of Catalan soldiers fallen during the siege of 1714, which ended with the fall of Barcelona and the end of the War of the Spanish Succession.

This is one of the trendiest and most touristic districts in the old city. It is a popular place for expats and contains many art boutiques, bars and cafés.

What makes this apartment unique

Lovely flat in El Born with 1 rooms.

A precious flat with a beautiful balcony to a pedestrian street in the hearth of the bohemian neighborhood El Born, in the center of Barcelona with a kong size bed, plants and a lot of daylight, wall with original stones from 18th century.

A lovely room with divided in bedroom and a space to work.

The flat has all the services (hot water, electricity, internet) included, and its all equipped, even towels and clean sheets.

It also has a Double bed available in the living room in case you need it.

In the flat I have many guides and also I´m 100% available for any doubt, suggestion, meeting, etc.

El Born is the most chic and bohemian neighborhood in Barcelona, the flat is just at 1 minute walking to Museo Picasso, 2 minute of Santa Maria del mar , 10m minutes walking to the beach and Las Ramblas, 3 minutos walking to 2 Metro Stations, 3 minutes walking to The Ciutadella Park.

In El Born there are a lot of unique and well hidden designer apparels and many restaurants as well as unique bars, you wont regret staying in the very hearth of the most beautiful Barcelona Neighborhood.

In the flat I have many guides and also I´m 100% available for any doubt, suggestion, meeting, etc.

What I always say to the guests is “mi casa es tu casa“ (my house is your house) so you can feel free in a housy flat, with many books and sculptures made by my room mate.

Hope to see you soon!

Avoid this rental property. Not as advertised.

The El Born neighborhood is excellent however our stay in this apartment was extremely disappointing. I travel the world and use VRBO/Home Away and Air BnB routinely. This is my first negative review.

The biggest issue with the apartment is a foul sweuage smell filling the living room and bathroom. I took to bushing my teeth in the tiny kitchen to avoid the unpleasantness of being in the bathroom. We bought candles and incense to mask the smell (this did little to help). I've previously stayed in structures with old pipes, this has never been the case.

The bath towels were stained and "crunchy". We had to launder our own sheets as they smelled musty and I questioned if they had been cleaned prior to our arrival.

A general lack of care for the apartment was evedent throughout the rental. Empty bottles, a broken light bulb and various other trash in the closets. All the little things added up and created a very unwelcoming environment.

Only one set of keys was provided to the outside community entrance door. If you intend to split from a travel companion for the day there is no way to enter the property.

I notified the owner, Patricia, via Home Away app and WhatsApp about the discrepancies on my first of a seven night stay. She ignored both mediums and never responded.

She did not provide any insight to the apartment as she tasked another individual to open the apartment on check in. This person was in a rush and took no time to welcome us -- less than three minute exchange before they scurried away.

I would compare the accommodations equivalent to a hostel. Maybe $50 a night would be appropriate. I would suggest you pay NO more.

Wonderful apartment in one of the best neighborhoods in Barcelona! Perfect for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful vacation in Barcelona. It was our first time in Spain and we were a bit nervous about renting a VRBO as we did not speak the language and completely unfamiliar with the city. Patricia's apartment was perfect and she was a gracious hostess. The apartment was cozy and had everything you needed. It was in one of the best neighborhoods where you could walk to most everything and be enchanted with the city. Patricia made herself available to us and was extremely helpful! She was patient with our questions about the city and about how to use the European washing machine. She even came over to help us!

We felt so lucky that we ended up in a cozy apartment in the best part of Barcelona with a gracious hostess! Definitely 5 star review.

Fantastic location !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July 2016. Its an amazing place for people who are travelling light. It has all the amenities that one needs. It is right in the midst of some very good restaurants and sights. We do not recommend staying here if you have too much luggage or if you are travelling with children. Climbing up 5 floors is a big hassle with luggage and kids. Other than that we would highly recommend this place !
