The building is quiet so please refrain from playing loud music and organising fiestas.
Great apartment, great location. Very close to everything. I was able to walk everywhere. It's a safe neighborhood, right next to a grade school. Really good water pressure in the shower (always a plus). Internet was reliable. Beds were comfy. The only drawback was that even though there are no bars nearby, it was a little loud at night so we needed to sleep with the front bedroom doors closed. This wasn't an issue because there were fans in the bedrooms and the back door could stay open for fresh air.
The girls had a brilliant week staying in this apartment. Perfect location to access most attractions and beaches by foot. Independent food shops including bakery and small supermarkets within a couple of minutes of door. A variety of restaurants to choose from also. The apartment was clean and comfortable for three ladies (three generations). Andre was amenable and helpful. Would definitely go back.
We had a lovely stay at Andre's apartment. The apartment is at great location - in the lovely El Born area of Barcelona - really close to La Rambla and Playa Catalunya and the beach is not that far away (20 mins walking).
We never met Andre, but he made sure that we have a good stay. We were 2 couples there and had a great time. We strongly recommend this place
Great location, very central, yet quiet. The apartment had all the amenities we needed and Andre was very helpful before and during our stay.
We enjoyed our stay,the apt. is as described, clean and quiet with a very central location.
This lovely apartment was a great base from which to explore Barcelona. We were able to walk to all of the major attractions. We really liked, though, that the area felt more neighborhoody and less touristy than, say, the Gothic Quarter. El Born is such a lovely part of Barcelona, within a few minutes from the Arc de Triumf and the beach, and we would definitely stay again.
The one issue is that, while there is a washing machine, there is no dryer. Just FYI.
Max was a good host, really helpful and flexible with his schedule. The flat is in a nice neighbourhood, calm and the beds are super comfortable - slept like a baby after long days of walking in the city! Highly recommended.
