From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
If you value location over luxury this is a great place to stay. It was ten minutes walk from the last stop off the Aerobus, fifteen minute walk to the beach, five minute walk to the Arc, and ten minute walk to La Rambla street.
El Born is a beautiful area with a lively nightlife and cool, funky shops all around. The food in the area is also great with a delicious gelato shop on the same road!!
Unfortunately, Laura sent me the wrong address and information in an email so I was walking all over Barcelona, without wifi, for an hour and a half, and ringing the wrong doorbell. But other than that everything went very smoothly.
The flat had all the basic amenities and we never needed anything. That being said, there was one shower shared by 3 rooms (two of which are doubles) so be prepared to wait if necessary.
I very much enjoyed my stay here, my friend Kelly and I had a great time in this area. Like I said, it wasn't the most luxurious flat but it was clean and had everything we needed.
The apartment is situated in a very nice street in Barcelona. That was fantastic. Price - quality wise it is a good apartment. Do make sure you make a clear appointment about picking up the keys. We had some problems with this...
The location of the flat is very great, very easy to get to all the attractions to the sites of Barcelona and Roberto gave me a warm welcoming, Allen can be reached very easy for information and help me a lot, but just some little things are not very well: the room is not very clean as the picture, the red sofa cannot be used, since it full of dust, and also some dust on the quilt. and I have to say this is a place just like a hostel, the host not stay in this house, so those travelers who want to find a place that can live, chat and share culture with the local people, this is not an ideal place.
Laura's apartment is perfect for a long or short stay in Barcelona. She sent us great instructions for getting there and on arrival, we're met by the fabulous Michi (Laura was away). Michi gave us maps and guides and answered any questions we had-mostly about where to eat!
The bathroom is nice and big, washing machine and dryer very useful, kitchen great and bedroom perfect. Location... AMAZING!!! You stay on one of the most popular streets in Barcelona, but it's still quiet inside!
Thanks for the great stay- I highly recommend it!
Didnt meet Laura, but we got a warm welcome by Lauras friend! Perfect location and we got all we needed for a weekend in Barcelona. Didnt stay much in the apartment though.
