Guestbook comments from the owner

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! I have rented several houses/apartments through VRBO and I must say that you have been the BEST property manager/owner I have had! Thank you so much! Barbara

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location.

As Someone in there late 50 's the stairs was a bit of a struggle 50 steps to our apartment. But if you have great hips the location is great. The bed was hard. But other than that it was a great stop over place.

Great location! Perfect for beach and city!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and spacious flat. With availability to drop bags off pre- check in time and post check out which was really helpful. Speedy response to all queries. One bedroom doesn't have a door - which didn't bother our party, but think worth knowing about.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great location right next to the Santa Maria Del Mar. Everything was well laid out and it was very clean. The owner was very responsive and helpful with questions and they even provided a crib for our toddler son. Do note that the stairs to get into the apartment are a little tricky with a lot of luggage. It's up two floors and the old, charming staircase gets narrow at some points and is only partially lit at night. Also, the directions provided were not the easiest. We spent an hour trying to find the place because it didn't come up in our GPS. A reference point would have helped, as in, "it's the wonderful old metal door with graffiti right above the pastry shop Bobu." It was a a great place and wonderful location, just don't bring a ton of luggage and note that it's on a pedestrian street so a cab/car will have to drop you off about 100 feet away.

An excellent, well equipped apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clearly and truthfully illustrated in promotional material. Carmen and her team could not have been more helpful, providing clear and detailed information, preparing a clean and welcoming property with spare essentials, and being most accommodating over our departure and luggage. Furnishings and beds were comfortable, the apartment was well equipped to meet all of our needs, and the air conditioning was super efficient. The location could not have been more perfect, yet out of the key, noisy honeypot outside the church. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Excellent location in heart of El Born steps from Cathedral by the Sea, not for seniors, no elevator

  • 4 of 5

Barcelona is pretty congested everywhere in the city, very few

Elevators lots of stairs. No parking anywhere except in underground garages for about 20 euros a day

Travel light and go with the flow. Great tourist sites, beaches are fun, good is quite good.

Amazing location, very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a fantastic location in the El Born area, very close to the square of the Santa Maria Del Mar church. As the door opened we were glad to find that the air-conditioning worked very well, keeping the main room at a comfortable temperature at all times. The bedrooms also have air conditioning which worked well. The apartment is quite quirky in layout and there are a few internal steps here and there (as well as the two flights of stairs to get up to the apartment. Don't be put off by this, it's amazing how your legs get better at this as the days go on!). The kitchen area is more than adequate and there is a very good fridge/freezer and washing machine (washing liquid and softener provided). The bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The double bed was a bit on the firm side but that's a personal thing. The small balcony off the main room has washing lines to peg out your beach washing (and pegs). The main beach at Barcoloneta, and Port Vell, are only ten minutes walk away. It is then an easy walk to the other beaches of Barcelona and Port Olympica. The square downstairs from the apartment has some lovely restaurants and it is only a few minutes walk to the main area of El Born which has many restaurants and bars. The metro stop of Jaume is only five minutes walk and from there you can link to wherever you want to be in Barcelona. The Wi-Fi worked really well in the main room. All in all this is a great holiday apartment from which to enjoy all that Barcelona has to offer. We would definitely visit again.

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.

150m. far from JaumeI metro station (yellow line)
