Very convenient also as you can get from the airpot by train to Estacion de Francia train station, that is only two streets from the apartment, it costs 1,45€ per person and it takes 35minutes, but previously you have to take the free transfer bus from T1 to T2 but this is very quick.Though the best is a taxi, cost 30-35€ and takes 30 minutes.You also have two subway stations only 5 minutes walking.You´ll see also that the apartment is not far from the port so if you come on a cruise is no more than 5 minutes to the apartment by taxi.
Also the apartment is located in the heart of the Born are, a very trendy and quiet area surrounded with pedestrian streets, boutiques and main amenities for a lively and comfortable visit in Barcelona, for example Picasso Museum, Chocolate Museum, Santa Maria del Mar Gothic church, Ciutadella Park, Santa Catalina Market, Barceloneta Beach, Las Ramblas,etc

Horacio was great. He was accommodating with pretty much everything that we asked for. I wish all of my Airbnb experiences were so smooth.
Horacio is a nice and friendly host. The apartment is nice and clean, and extremely well located in a pedestrian area in the centre of the city, with all the relevant services close by e.g. shops, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and near to many touristic attractions e.g. the Picasso museum, the cathedral, a nice park and the zoo and the sea is only 5 minutes walk away. We (5 people) spent a lovely holiday in Barcelona, also thanks to Horacio's flat and to Horacio's hospitality.
We came as exhibitors of the Barcelona Boat Show and were looking for a place close to Port Vell and large enough to acommodate 5 people working on the fair in separate rooms. Two rooms are facing the patio and are of course more quiet (but have little natural light) than the three rooms facing the street. As other guests already mentioned the living area is not very big and also a bit dark which was no problem for us as we came home late anyway. Rooms were clean and the kitchen well equipped. But the best thing is you are right in the center of it all with not only the port but all major attractions close by.
Overall, it was a very positive experience staying at "luxury large design apartment." The description and photos were accurate. Horacio was not able to meet us but a friend of his did, and Horacio came by later to show us how to work the appliances, etc., and left a bottle of wine and a bottle of water for us. He also sent a long welcome email about amenities in the area, and quickly answered questions we had. The location is great, in El Born close to great restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. It was a little farther from the Metro underground system than was ideal for us, with a slow-moving older person and an easily-tiring small child. Horacio also ordered a taxi for us when we had to leave, and helped us with the luggage when we were leaving. He even posted one item we had inadvertently left in the apartment. Overall, I highly recommend this spacious apartment and gracious host! Also, our taxi driver had trouble finding the place, and because it is in a pedestrian area dropped us about 2 blocks away. However, then we had trouble finding the actual apartment. Make sure you get detailed directions from Horacio if you are staying here.
it was a pleasure to meet you and also your family and you are always welcome and would be very happy to meet you again.
I always post the address and even the location of the apartment on google maps and the council official map as I did with you in my welcome letter, but of course I can not expect that every taxi driver professionally knows all the addresses in Barcelona, The Mercedes taxi I booked for you on your departure did not have any problem to find this address in such a central and popular location.
Had a wonderful time staying in this apartment with my family. Bedrooms were spacious the location is great and there was a bottle of wine and some snacks for us when we arrived Was advised not to use outdoor area except for non-talking quick cigarettes due to the neighbors. Really good area, felt more local then touristy.
The service provided by Horacio was first class. A lot of additional information about the surrounding area was provided which was a greet touch.
The apartment was exactly how it was described & was a great place to stay.
Very good apartment in a great area of Barcelona. The living room was small, otherwise everything was perfect.
