You're 5 minutes from the closest subway, 10 min.. from the trainstation, 30 seconds from the first nice tapa-bar, in the middle of a great city in one of its best barrios.
Other Things to Note
The winding staircase is listed as part of Barcelona's architectural heritage but not really made for big suitcases. The flat is on the 4th floor and doesn't have an elevator.
Please do respect the neighbours!
Even though we were not able to meet personally, Bernard made sure everything was perfectly organized and prepared for our stay. Keys and arrangements with the cleaning lady were as agreed; he followed up with a phone call to make sure we had everything we needed. Apartment was as described, very clean and in a nice neighborhood with lots of bars, restaurants, squares and in walking distance to the Ramblas and the beach.
As mentioned in many other comments - yes ,the staircase is really narrow and steep but if you come with small luggage, you can get there without any trouble.
We also enjoyed the recommendations for restaurants and tried the one downstairs. Not the cheapest place overall but the food was good and really different from the usual tourist stuff. In a nutshell - a stay we really enjoyed and we would certainly come back to the place!
We had a fantastic holiday in Barcelona. The flat is located close to both the beach and the city, with a great market place nearby. The apartment in itself was very clean and well equipped. Bernard was kind and gave us a long list of things to try, which was helpful. We would absolutely recommend this apartment, and keep in mind that the staircase is a great leg workout!
Bernard was great- on time, happy to share his recommendations and helped carry our bags up the stairs. He insisted we call him for anything we might need.
The apartment is clean, well appointed and perfect for 2. The location is wonderful- near great bars, the food market , interesting shops, Picasso museum and 10 mins stroll to Barcelona's other historical attractions in the gothic quarter.
If you are particularly tall or wide you may find the stairs a challenge!
What a great spot! And the unique tight 70 step staircase is one out of the box! But don't worry Bernard will carry your case up the stairs. This clean and trendy large studio flat
Is in the best part of town. 10 mins walk from everything. I miss the place and trust me you won't be disappointed!
Brilliant and convenient location for wandering around the city and taking in the cafes, bars, restaurants and attractions. Our host was lovely and welcomed us when we arrived. One word of caution for those who cannot do many steps...the staircase to the apartment is extremely narrow and up four levels. Also do watch out for bag snatchers in the surrounding alleys - we were diverted and almost lost our bag. These things aside it comes highly recommended.
Bernaro was extremely welcoming, and really helpful- We loved everything about our stay! Thank you! Great location too :-)
Bernard's home was perfect for our weekend in Barcelona. It was in the perfect location with lots of nearby dining options. Bernard met us at check in and gave helpful recommendations on how to avoid the tourist traps.
I'll be happy to welcome you in this perfectly located great place in el Born.
I've been living in Barcelona for over 21 years and never stopped looking for those truly nice, authentic, preferably non-touristy and sometimes really hidden tapas-bars, restaurants, bars, shops or simply great being-there spots, making Barcelona what it is.
If you need any kind of information, it will be a pleasure to share my recommendations and try to get the best out of your stay in this wonderful city.
Hope to be seeing you.
