The Space

Our studio has it all! A double bed, warm duvet, soundproof balcony doors, curtains to block out the sun, electric stove, full size fridge, full bathroom, large wardrobe, a 2 in 1 coffee and dining table & in a beautiful neighbourhood

This is a studio apartment with a bathroom, double bed, kitchen, living and dining space, and balcony overlooking a quiet street.You can expect the apartment to be clean and intimate enough for two people. The kitchen has two electric hobs, a kettle, a toaster, and a fridge. It also comes with all the basics; cups, glasses, plates, pots, and pans. The living space and dining space include a two person sofa and an adjustable dining/coffee table. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, the stairwell is steep and narrow, and some parts of the wall are exposed so you need to be careful not to get white chalky dust on your sleeve! But don't worry, it will brush right off.

We include bedsheets, towels, and toilet paper. If you want shampoo and or conditioner let us know as well. If you need breakfast supplies (eggs, milk, tea, coffee, cereals, sausages etc.) also specify so we can make sure to have it there before you arrive. Otherwise we'll assume you will be eating out.

The balcony is the best part of the flat. It gives the place a lot of character. It is quite entertaining to observe all the activity below. Carrer Portal Nou is a wide street compared to the other narrow streets of the Old City and it is particularly nice because of its cobble stone road. Portal Nou is a newly gentrified street, so you will see a mix of old and new such as the traditional bakery opposite the flat and the trendy cupcake shop a few doors up. It is also situated near a pedestrian avenue Old Saint Augustus where you will find traditional local eateries and the well known Carrer Carders which is excellent for its strip of shops, bars, and restaurants.

A short ten minute walk either way will lead you to various popular tourist sights, whether it be Parc Ciutadela, El Mercat del Borne, or El Barrio Gotico. It really is a great area due to its proximity to tourist sites and night life. It is also conveniently close to the Arc de Triumph Metro and Train station as well as the Estacio Nord bus station, making it easy to get to from whichever airport it is you are setting out from.

  • I booked the flat for my college-age daughter and her friend; Gabby was responsive to my emails and checked with me to find out when the girls were arriving. My daughter said the studio was in a perfect location - they could walk everywhere! Hopefully next time, I will be the one staying in Barcelona!

  • Quartier idéalement placé et au centre de la vie barcelonaise. Studio typique dans un immeuble pittoresque. L'appartement est conforme à nos attentes et se révèle parfait pour un couple.

  • Gabby was very sweet, a great host! She met me near the apartment and showed me in and pointed out everything in there. Its perfectly located in the great El Born area, with tons of restaurants and shops along all of the winding small side streets. Was a great find!

  • Had a very comfortable stay in Gabby and Geoff's apartment. As listed, it was cozy and clean. The location was key and couldn't be beat. El borne has excellent food and shopping. We were also in close walking distance to two metro stations making sight seeing very easy.

    Upon arrival there was an issue regarding the key and we had to wait to get in, but Gabby worked it out as quickly as she could. I have the impression that this was a fluke because otherwise she was very communicative and helpful. Would still recommend the place regardless.

  • This apartment was perfectly located. Seriously perfect. It's on a really cool street with cafes, shops and a bakery across the street that we had breakfast at each morning. It's cozy, but had everything we needed. Gabby and Geoffrey were friendly and helpful.

  • Les + : Appartement très bien situé, dans une ruelle calme au centre de la ville.
    Les - : Appartement un peu vieux et pas très bien entretenu. Les hôtes n'y réside pas, et les locations s'enchainent...
