About this listing
The best location for a holiday or long term in Barcelona. Easy to walk everywhere, lots of bars and ambiance. A bit noisy during the weekends. WiFi. Spacious and fit for a family of five or six. Only one bathroom with tub.
We offer this spacious and diaphanous space at the heart of Born area, right in front of the recently renovated 1876's work of Josep Fontserè i Mestre. The Born Market (Mercat del Born Centre Cultural) used to home the city's main market (today Mercabarna), until it was moved to the actual place near the modern Port. Since the finding of ancient roman, medieval and post medieval remains has taken years to catalog, the market was closed for 36 years until this day, that it has become a Multi-cultural space that hosts the city's fashion week as well as many other ceremonies. There is also the possibility to visit the old Born remains that show how life was back in 1700's.
The area is flowing of excellent choices to eat out, drink, shop, walk around and enjoy the electric outdoor life of Barcelona. With the beach at walking distance, near Picasso Museum, Parc de la Ciutadella, Arc de Triomf and metro stations:

It has everything you need to make your stay a comfortable one, with pots and pans, as well as kitchen items to cook at home...in case you do wish to stay in! Because the offer of restaurants around the house is so good that you will have a hard time choosing where to go next. We offer recommendations of places that we know, tours and any information you could need to move around.
The apartment is located on an almost street level first floor, so there won't be many steps to climb. Since the area is very nice, it gets visited year round and can be a bit noisy at night on the weekends but no later than 1 am.
Reliable, good speed WiFi available.
We will be happy to host you and respond to any questions you could have.

Interaction with Guests
We meet personally each guest. We give tips and recommendations upon arrival and then upon request via sms or whatsapp.
Best location in town, to our point of view.
A short walk to the metro. But then perhaps metro is not as necessary when you are so close to everything.
We kindly ask respect for the neighbour's sleeping hours, this is quite an issue in Barcelona. We offer our space to open minded travellers who will make good use of the apartment. If you really must, please smoke on the balcony or in the nice street ambiance.
In case you have a two person reservation, please specify wether you will share the main bed or would like to have separate sleeping surfaces, in order to make necessary arrangements. Thank you for choosing our flat.
