Great apartment in beautiful El Born.
Our stay was perfect. The apt was very clean, which is very important for us because we were traveling with our 17 month baby.
Horacio was very kind and helpful. He helped us with our bags as the apt is on the 4th floor. He also set up the cot and the high chair for our little one, which was a tremendous help!
The place itself is very nicely set up. The kitchen is perfectly set up to prepare food for our baby and still be able to keep an eye on her while running around the apt. :)
The location is ideal for families or just anyone really... Some of the best restaurants, cafes, shops, art and culture venues are footsteps of the apartment. Bonus to have the beautiful Ciutadela Park walking distance from the apartment, which for families with little ones couldn't be more ideal. Great playgrounds, the Barcelona zoo is part of the park, the list can go on and on.
Also, the beach is a very close walk from the apt!
Thank you Horacio for making our stay very smooth and for all the tips you gave us prior to arriving to Barcelona! We will definetly stay there again!
We (2 families with two babies and a small kid) had a fantastic long weekend in Horacio's beautiful apartment. The location could not have been better suited for us. El Born is by far the most beautiful part of Barcelona. The apartment was big enough to fit us all quite comfortably. It is modern, spacious and bright. Horacio helped us carry all our stuff upstairs and gave us some great tips on how to explore the nicest places in the neighborhood. All in all it was a brilliant stay. Well worth the price. Thanks again Horacio. You were a great host. We will certainly come back.
the apartment is in areally fantastic position for visiting and living barcelona. the flat is nice and calm even though it has some issues:
forth flat without lift is tough:)
just one wc for seven is not enough.
perfect for a family less for two.
good location anyway.
nice and gentle checkin!
Perfect location, the flat is on a beautiful plaza in El Borne.
It's large and stylish . I did not meet Horacio, but Sandrine who received us was extremely helpful.
When we arrived it was cold in Barcelona and the flat was cold too, but she turned on the heating and tried to fix some lamps which were not working. The flat was perfectly clean and it has been a good choice for us.
Le loft est très agréable, la décor est très sympa les deux chambres sont très grandes avec un espace salle de bain très original
Appartement très bien situé en plein coeur du Born un des quartiers les plus sympas de Barcelone, tout près de la plage et du quartier gothique
