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 basics for simple meals). 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 quite 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.
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. It's minutes away from Mercat El Borne, which showcases a recently opened dig exposing roman ruins as well as the museum of Catalunya.
From the apartment, 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 Triunfo 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.

Lo mejor del apartamento es su localización: una calle tranquila en uno de esos barrios populares que hacen que te enamores de Barcelona. Los vecinos del piso son tranquilos. Para llegar al piso hay que subir tres tramos de escalera muy empinados (piensa en Amsterdam). El piso es un pequeño (unos 30 o 35 ms2) apartamento con una habitación y un baño muy sencillo. A menos de 200 mts en la propia calle encuentras de todo (cafés, restaurantes, supermercados, etc). Yo fui en lo mas cálido del verano y pasé mucho calor en el piso, aunque el ventilador de pie ayuda bastante. La conexión wifi es muy buena. No hay tele (ni falta que hace porque ya digo que la vida del barrio es estupenda). Cuando yo fui, en la casa no había escoba ni paños del polvo ni de cocina. El piso debería haberse ventilado mejor antes de alquilarlo.
Appartement conforme à la description, idéalement situé.
A savoir : l'appartement est au 3ème étage sans ascenseur et les escaliers sont exigus.
Nous recommandons cet appartement.
The street is really amazing. Small groceries, bakery, local artists etc; all made a perfect atmosphere in the heart of Barcelona. Although we didn't meet Geoffrey & Gabby personally, they prepared a nice place for us and where truly helpful on phone/app. It was great experience, we're ready to stay here again.
Great little place in an excellent location. As it appears in the photos. Clean, ideal for single travellers or couples. Many useful resources in the apartment (maps, guides, etc). Walking distance to most of the main tourist attractions and a metro stop less than five minutes away. You have to travel up an amazing few flights of stairs but take this into consideration if you have a heap of luggage! Noisy with the balcony door open at night, but sound-proof when closed. Many nice eats within metres of the front door. Great value for money, and lovely hosts. Highly recommended.
L'appartement est parfait pour un petit séjour et très bien situé: tout est accessible à pied. Bon accueil. Au calme.
Le seul point négatif est que l'appartement pourrait être plus propre.
Nous le recommandons.
Geoffrey and Gabby went out of their way to make my arrival, departure and everything in-between amazing. From helping me with my luggage, to letting me store it at their place when I was early to arrive, to checking in with me on their own accord to make sure everything was OK. The location is incredible; bars, restaurants, a park 2 blocks away - I couldn't recommend this place more. The photo is pretty much the whole place so good for 1 person or a couple.
