El Born is unique!!!
The gently ancient medieval stone structures surrounding wherever you are cobbled, winding streets. Plants and flowers fall ornate than the eye can see that while the locals sleep peacefully on the banks of small balconies and picturesque squares.
You can enjoy a perfect day to get lost in this neighborhood, visiting world-class museums, both in stores and find vintage cloths. Enjoy tapas restaurants have a drink in bars and top brand cocktelerias.
The terminal is easily accessible and centrally located. It is located between Eixample and Port , bordering a beautiful park and the Gothic District . The area is the perfect place to step back in time and take a break from the cosmopolitan lifestyle you'll find elsewhere in the city.

Other Things to Note
1. ARRIVAL: I'm happy for you to check in early or check out late if there are not other guests before or afterwards, otherwise check in is from 15:00 and check out by 11:00 to allow plenty of time for the flat to be professionally cleaned. You can always store your bags on the lockers close to Catalonia Square. Please check on (website hidden) “lockers barcelona”.
2. How do I submit a reservation request?
Enter your dates & click the Book It button.
You’ll find the Book It button on a listing or in a message thread. Make sure to enter your exact reservation details before you click, then review all details from the checkout page.
3. What is Instant Book?
The Instant Book feature allows you to book instantly without having to wait for my confirmation. This is a bit like a pre-approval without the need for a me to manually pre-approve each guest. I have made this listing available through Instant Book, once the reservation details and payment information are submitted the reservation is automatically confirmed on the site.
4. How does the Airbnb payment system work?
The payment system is secure, reliable, and convenient, supporting many currencies.
When your reservation is accepted, the payment is processed and collected by Airbnb in full.* Whether the reservation is two days or two months away, they hold the payment until 24 hours after check-in before giving it to me. This gives you security that everything is as expected.
5. How does Airbnb handle security deposits?
A security deposit helps protect hosts and guests from accidents that occur during a reservation. For example: spilled wine on the rug, a broken window, or an unreturned key.
Details on the process:
24 hours before check-in, the guest's credit card is authorized for the amount of the deposit.
48 hours after the checkout date, the authorization is released if the host does not make a claim.
This will be your home, not a hotel , make yourselfs comfortable and relax : -)

Luciana was a great host. She replied to messages quickly and everything was arranged in advance.
At some point I stupidly managed to leave the key in the apartment and she arranged for someone to come round with a spare key no problem. Thank you!
The apartment was lovely and true to the pictures, though the kitchen utensils were fairly basic (no salt/pepper or bottle opener/corkscrew). Another thing to note is that the staircase is very steep and narrow which is quite common in Barcelona, but getting big suitcases up and down required some finesse.
All in all we had a lovely stay in the apartment and would recommend Luciana as a reliable, friendly and accommodating host.
Appartement propre et bien agencé. En plein coeur du quartier El born. Situé à proximité des plages et du centre ville. Parfait pour alterner visite et farniente. Le quartier est très animé en période estivale, idéal pour les fêtards. L'immeuble est relativement vieux, l'accès au deuxième étage est assez étroit. Éviter les grandes valises. .. Relativement chaud en période estivale, la prėsence de la climatisation est plus que nécessaire. L'accueil s'est fait par l'intermėdiaire d'une tierce personne.
Very nice and cosy apartment! We stayed for 5 days and were very happy to find it. Very well located: "barceloneta" and "rambla" are accessible on foot, and "El born" is a very nice place to stay.
I truly recommend!
Myself and my girlfriend had a great experience here. Luciana was very accommodating and the city speaks for itself. Look forward to doing it again!
Excellent apartment in a great location, very modern and clean but with traditional touches. I loved the big windows and the bathroom. Definitely recommend to others!
The instructions were clear and considering how winding the streets can be, it was great that they chose to meet in a popular area, rather than having us find our was on our own. The flat was clean and exactly as described. The neighborhood is vibrant with many shops and restaurants right outside the door. It was nice to be so close to the beach as well.
We loved staying at luciana's apartment in Barcelona. The location was perfect. We definitely recommend it for any young couple ready to enjoy the city
