Perfect apartment to explore Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay when you want to experience Barcelona! Nice and cosy apartment with everything you need, perfect location close to everything and still located a quiet place for a good night sleep! The area Born is so charming with small cafés, bars and unique shops around every corner of the small streets. We stayed three persons for six days and it was perfecto! We would definitely like to stay here another time.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

The owner was awesome! So helpful with reservations, recommendations, and we arrived late and she was so great about it. She has information in the apartment for your "tourism" needs. We never had to call her, but she was so sweet and offered if we needed anything to let her know.

The apartment was cozy and perfect for our needs. I'm picky when it comes to cleanliness and I didn't feel gross.

Location was awesome! Safe area! I felt like I was a local and not such a tourist living here for the week. Close to shops, great restaurants, beach, metro....pretty much EVERYTHING.

Have already recommended this place for friends and will definitely use her again.

There is no lift.

a nice apartment right in the heart of Born!

  • 5 of 5

The building is quite old and does not have an elevator but the apartment has just been redercorated and absolutely worth it.

It is well located as it's at 3 min walk to the Passeig del Born and to the closest metro station (the yellow line the goes straight to the beaches) and right behind the Museo Picasso.

The apartment itself is well equipped and perfect for a couple (I'd stayed there with my boyfriend); only 2 "imperfections": no air conditioning (there is a fan but in august may get quite hot) and there's a rather small refrigerator so there's not the freezer compartment (quite useful if you need ice).

I would defintely recommend this property and enjoy BCN as much as you can!
