Well Equipped, Economical Apartment in Old Town Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

The three of us, a married couple and adult child, had a wonderful vacation in Barcelona. The apartment was in a great location and perfect for our needs. Though the layout of the apartment is a little quirky due to the nature of the old building, it was as advertised and pictured. The apartment was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. As stated by others, stairs leading to and inside the apartment would make this unsuitable for those with mobility issues. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries and needs.

Best Location to enjoy and explore Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We (parents & 11 yr. old son) stayed here 11/18-11/24 and were so happy we chose this apartment. It is clean, well laid out, lots of room with a large master bedroom and closet/ changing room and bathroom. Although we did not cook, the kitchen is well supplied and has a large refrigerator. The washer and dryer were very much appreciated as we only took carry-on luggage. It is within walking distance to all major sights. Although we used public transportation to Park Guell, we walked to the Sagrada from there and then back to the apartment. There are so many cafes, bakeries and restaurants close by. Be sure to go to LaLuna - great food and ambience.

Although we did not get to meet her, Carmen answered all my questions and provided a cellphone # to reach her when we were on our way. We were met at the apartment and shown the workings of all appliances, etc. I do agree with other reviews regarding the noise of this area at night. That said, I would not have traded our location for one which may have been quieter. Earplugs! We would not hesitate to stay here on future visits to Barcelona - our 11 year old loved his "man cave"!!!

Perfect Barcelona location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location, clean, and well appointed. The approach to the apartment does not reflect what it looks like once you are in the apartment. Although the stairwell is a common area to the building, it does need improvement and along those lines I encountered Carmen who along with a workman was making plans to improve the stair area. Regardless of the stairs, I wholeheartedly recommend this apartment.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean. Wifi worked. Large fridge. Close to dining and walking around Born and area.

It is noisy some nights, but that is to be expected in this area. Really perfect location. So much to see and do within walking distance.

Hola Carmen. Thank you for everything. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable, so well located - we love it! Your suggestions were perfect and we had a wonderful time!

Located in El Born, a trendy area full of new designers and cozy restaurants, and near Santa Maria del Mar (Catedral del Mar), Picasso Museum, the old port and the beach. The terms that best describe this apartment are design and comfort. In an ancient building, it was completely renewed 2 years ago and it overlooks a quiet pedestrian street.
