About Philip Spark

I'm Philip, I lived in Barcelona for more than 10 years and specially love "La Barceloneta "and the old town with all the pedestrian streets and local life with beach, markets and the cosmopolitan atmosphere.

All my properties are fully furnished and have all the appliances of home! I always enjoy being hospitable with all guests and it is my biggest satisfaction that they enjoy themselves and have a memorable experience in Barcelona. My hobby is urban photography and sea activities. See you soon!

Philip Spark purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Philip Spark chose La Barceloneta

Despite humble beginnings as a settlement built on top of a medieval area of jousts and celebrations El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city.

El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same line. Las Ramblas and the very center of the city are a pleasant 5 minutes walk away!!!

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is the perfect choice for your stay in Barcelona.

At walking distance of main highlights of the city.

Perfect for big groups to stay together in the same building, or for families, friends, etc...

Enjoy the most authentic area of Barcelona!!!

Perfect for weekend breaks or longer stays.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment. Great location. Great communication. Overall brilliant! Always stay on la ramblas but will definitely be going to this apartment again as really great location and busy but quieter than la ramblas. We are 3 women and felt completely safe in el born. Great for groups of people. Washing machine (we didn't need/use it) so good for longer visits! Really easy to get around to see sites from. Would book again in an instant. Perfect for weekend breaks or longer stays.

the location is great

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is great. We could walk to everywhere. The place is so spacious, a perfect living room for six of us to gather together around the open kitchen, dinning table and looking out to the back years. Thanks!

Couldn't ask for a better place

  • 5 of 5

The location was great and the apt was as advertised. Everything that was needed was there plus close to metro, groceries and restaurants. Very close to Ramblas and the beach. Couldn't ask for a better place to come back to after a day out.

amazing barcelona

  • 5 of 5

One of my favorite locations in Barcelona. Steps from the beach and nightlife and walking distance to the ramblas and tourist attractions.

Our host and his team are great and went above and beyond expectations. The apartment is larger than looks on the photos, clean.

I would highly recommend to anyone coming to Barcelona.

muchas gracias!

  • 5 of 5

A very massive apartment with space to chill. As centrally located as possible. We were a group of 8 women and found the beds comfy and the 2 bathrooms more than enough to all get ready quickly with hot water. The living room is perfect to drink some Spanish vino before going out. Location is superb with everything scenic being a 5-10 minute walk, lots of cool shopping & food in the El Born neighborhood and a supermarket/restaurants very close to the house. Would definitely recommend this place for large groups! Muchas gracias para la estancia estupenda!
