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!
Bernard's apartment is a wonderful place to stay on your trip to Barcelona. It is perfectly located in el born in walking distance to so many amazing restaurants,bars,museums, and a metro station. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures and is newly renovated and decorated very nicely. Bernard was extremely responsive and easy to communicate with. He had many great recommendations for what to do in the city. We enjoyed our stay and were very sad to leave el born.
Bernard's studio apartment was great and Bernard was fantastic through the whole process. He got back to us very quickly on all communication. Bernard wasn't able to meet us for check in because of extenuating circumstances, but he bent over backwards to make sure we were taken care of.
The only challenge of the apartment is the stairs. Very steep and narrow, but I believe this is in the description.
Bernard provided excellent recommendations on local restaurants (Bar del Pla is great!). The El Born district is centrally located and a short walk from the heart of Barcelona and a metro stop.
I cannot say enough positive things about Bernard. Great host. Stay with him if you are visiting Barcelona.
The apartment is located in the best part of Barcelona: Close to the beach and the city, with a great market place and a lot of nice bars and restaurants nearby. As it is right in the middle of El Born, it might be a bit noisy at weekend nights but that's no big problem. The apartment itself was very clean and well equipped and it's nicely furnished.
Bernard was really helpful and gave us a long list of good places for food an drinks. Communication was clear and easy!
We would absolutely recommend this apartment and would love to come back one day.
What a brilliant place! Bernard was the perfect host, even meeting us at the airport to give us the keys. The apartment itself was stunning, so homely and modern in contrast to the old, beautiful building and the gothic neighbourhood. Although a small space it feels a lot bigger, with a great balcony overlooking the streets below. Bernard also gave us a great list of recommendations. One of the nice touches was previous guests having left wine, and books. We left a bottle of wine ourselves - it adds a little character!
Will definitely stay again - thanks Bernard!!
Un séjour parfait dans un appartement plein de charme et idéalement situé.
Le studio est très propre, lumineux et moderne. Le lit est très confortable, la vue du quatrième étage sur les rues pittoresques du vieux quartier d'el Born est surprenante.
L'escalier qui mène au studio est également pittoresque car très étroit et charmant si l'on voyage avec des bagages aux dimensions standards. Sinon un peu de sport au programme. Bernard est un hôte très sympathique et prévenant car il s'est gentiment proposé pour monter une grosse valise.
Bernard nous avait également communiqué avec un ingénieux email tous les bons Restos avec leur localisation sur Google Map.
L'appartement est situé en plein centre à deux pas des sites intéressants. Une entrée de métro située à 200 mètres permet d'explorer Barcelone dans de très bonnes conditions.
Rien à dire, très bonne adresses !
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!
About the Host, Bernard
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.
