About This Listing
Apartment with lots of light and a beautiful view on the 4th Floor of an old historic building in El Born.
The location of the apartment is perfect: you are 10 minutes walk from La Rambla, the Plaza Catalunya, the Gothic Quarter, the Cathedral. A 15 minute walk from the beach (Barceloneta and Port Olympic). 5mn from the Parc de la Ciutadella.
The neighborhood is alive and bohemian, small restaurants and bars abound, you're not with the tourist crowd that revolves around La Rambla but you can mix it quickly if you want. The nearest metro station is Arc de Triumf.
The apartment is spacious (80 sq metres), 2 bedrooms each with double beds, wi-fi access, kitchen, large sitting room and bathroom, three small balconies.
Important things : There is no elevator and one bedroom has no window, no AC but multiples fans .
I will provide you with towels and bed linen, maps and any information you need.
Please message me with your requests or questions. I look forward to welcoming you to Barcelona
1 Laundry machine a week (7 nights)
I provide with towels, not beach towels
We really enjoyed staying at Veroniques place! She is such a nice, welcoming and happy person! She will help wherever possible and is very easy going :) That made our stay in Barcelona extra special! The room is not big, but big enough for 2 persons, also because of the drawers where you can put your stuff in. We used the kitchen a lot, which was a plus. The choice we made for el Born was great! In our opinion the best neighborhood of the city, with its nice shops, restaurants, art, creativity and nice mix of people! All together.. We loved our time in Barcelona at Veroniques place and would have stayed longer if we could :) Thanks Veronique and ofcourse Fifi for making us feel at home!
Great apartment in a great location close to the Parc de la Ciutadella. Near the sea and the beach, Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. Veronique delightful hostess, very sociable and friendly. And it has a wonderful dog Fifi. Thank you so much for everything, Veronique. Sergey, Elena, St.Petersburgh, Russia
My stay at Veronique's place was fantastic. The room was exactly as listed on Airbnb and Veronique was also so nice to set up another small room that I could use to work/study during the day. The apartment is just by the Arc de Triomf, a very lively area full of bars, restaurants and shops. Yet, the bedroom is very quiet and you will have no problems with street noise if you stay here. From the area you can practically walk to to anywhere you want to go in BCN. Finally, Veronique was a superb host - always extremely nice, friendly and helpful. If you have any doubts or questions regarding Barcelona just ask her - she will tell you how to make the most out of your trip! In sum, my experience in this apartment was great and I would definitely stay here again!
To begin with, thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Barcelona, Veronique! Our host is an absolute sweetheart. She was extremely accommodating in many ways (which was greatly appreciated when we had some significant airline issues in getting to Barcelona in the first place!), and was helpful, pleasant, and great company for the duration of our trip (though she was also great about giving us our privacy, too!). Her dog, Fifi, was lovely as well!
Her apartment is in the charming district of El Borne, and was within walking distance of most of the major sights to see. Veronique also made a couple of suggestions for other things to do and see in Barcelona, which turned out to be some of the highlights of our trip.
Her apartment was very clean, comfortable, and safe, and was great to come back to after a long day of traveling! One thing to note for travelers who may have some difficulty getting around: the apartment is up four flights of very narrow stairs (69, I believe my mom counted haha!), so may be challenging for those with mobility issues or very large suitcases. The apartment was a bit noisy as we were there in the days leading up to a festival, but ear plugs would fix that if necessary! Spain is definitely hot in the summer, but thankfully Veronique had plenty of fans to circulate the air and create a breeze to make it more comfortable for sleeping. Unfortunately, the air conditioning unit has never worked for her, as that would have been great!
All in all, we had a fantastic stay in Barcelona, and would be very happy to cross paths with Veronique again in the future!
It would be foolish to dare to hope that a host can be this friendly, welcoming, easygoing and above all helpfull. But I was blown away, Véronique is the perfect host, summing upp all mentioned qualities in an excelling fashion.
The apartment itself is in the perfect neighbourhood for the traveller, close to the metro station and in easy walking distance from Catalunya square and the beach.
The entrance to the apartment is up a tiny staircase so carrying up large suite cases can be a bit of an adventure. That I found however to be the only minus with the apartment. The room supplied is large, the bed nice and you have a lot of space for your luggage. Rest of the apartment goes as the pictures describe, large living room, great kitchen and a spacious bathroom.
I can highly reccomend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a nice and cozy place to stay at in Barcelona.
Very nice quiet room in a trendy neighborhood. We enjoyed a nice stay and were really happy to have a nice place as homebase for our Barcelona expedition!
Located near the parc, metrostation, restaurants and cafés.. perfect !
Véronique is a friendly and pleasant host! We would surely like to stay at her place again on future trips!
