The Space

Wide and very nice room in an apartment of 110 square meters located in the District of El Born in Barcelona. The room has a double bed, ideal for a couple. Bed linen and towels included. You can make full use of the full equiped kitchen, the spacious bathroom, toilet,and the living room. The flat is part of an early 20th century building, and the floor has been completely refurbished months ago, although it keeps all the original structure, with beautiful and colorful floors made of hydraulic mosaic, large doors and windows, and ornaments on the walls and ceilings. The apartment is very bright, both morning and afternoon. The situation is excellent if you come to spend a few days in Barcelona. Just in front of the old market in el Born, just 2 minutes from the Parc de la Ciutadella, and 10 minutes walk from the beach of la Barceloneta. The area is very well communicated in terms of public transport. The street where the apartment is located is very quiet, although a 5 minute walk there is an area full of design shops, art galleries and museums, among which stands out the Picasso Museum, the beautiful church of Santa Maria del Mar, nice bars and restaurants, and the colorful food market of Santa Catarina. The flat has wifi (total coverture), heat, washing machine, tumbledryer, dishwasher and TV.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Staying at Anna's place in Barcelona was a highlight of our trip. The apartment is greatly located in El Born with good walking distance to all the tourist areas. There are many good restaurants in the area. Anna gave us couple of suggestions and they were all good and excellent! The kitties in the flat are welcoming and cute. We highly recommend Anna's place to anyone and we look forward to (email hidden) again in the future.

  • A perfect location and a wonderful home. Anna's interns welcomed us the day that we arrived and we met her later on that night. The kitties were an added welcoming committee. The key was a bit finicky at first, but Anna was quick to give us a new one right away. The room has beautiful high ceilings and a wardrobe for you to put your things in so you don't have to feel like you're living out of a suitcase. The apartment is in a lovely neighbourhood with lots of shops restaurants, and main attractions at a close walk away. It's also not in a super touristy area, so it gives you the feel of actually living in Barcelona for your stay.

  • We had a good time in Barcelona and at Anna's place. The partment is wonderful and has a good location (restaurants, café's, small supermarkets). The useful metro-station at arc triomph is 10-12 minutes walking distance. From the sunny livingroom you have a fantastic view to mount tibidabo. The room itself is a bit dark (window to small quadratic inner yard, typically for barcelona). Maybe eraplugs are helpful because of noises from other flats (kitchen and bathrooms).
    The flat is very clean and the prying cats are cute.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Anna's apartment. She (email hidden) living (email hidden) and the location just perfect for discovering Barcelona on foot. Maybe the mattress was a little soft

  • Lovely apartment with the most gorgeous looking floors. The cats were great company for our daughter. (email hidden). Let's you be, but is very helpful should you want any help.
    Location is good. Nice walk to the metros. We did get a little lost at times and would recommend carrying a fairly detailed map. Apartment has a lift, so is great to carry luggage/sleeping children!

  • DO NOT RENT A CAR !! In Barcelona you can go everywhere you want by Metro or bus. Anna (email hidden). We enjoyed our trip very much. 2 Metro spots, 5 buslines, 10 min walk to the sea, a beautiful park next door and tons of good restaurants. The room is comfy and the location is simply great. Thank you Anna for the great time.

  • Great appartment with fantastic view in a beautiful and trendy neighbourhood. Unfortunatly the matrass was pretty thin and so sleeping wasn't to comfortable. Communication with Anna and because she was travelling, her cousin was very good, but we would have liked to have know on forehand there was also a cat living there and you are sharing all other rooms. The room itself was clean when we arrived, but the kitchen (and the garbage) could use some extra attention. We spend most of out time out of the appartment and had a great time in Barcelona.

  • We had a lovely stay at Anna's place! The location is perfect, in the middle of trendy El Born, yet just far enough away in it's more gentile setting to be a peaceful & restful place.

    We loved the interior, trendy but still Spanish. Great facilities also.

  • Anna & Mingus will welcome you !
    The flat is located in a an amazing historical location, really close to many attractions like the "Picasso museum", the "Gotic district" and the beautiful beach of Barceloneta.
    The house is spacious and comfortable.
    The flat is 5 minutes by walk from the closest metro station (Barceloneta). Moreover the area is plenty of very good places where to eat delicious local food. I've really enjoyed to stay in Anna's flat and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a short stay in Barcelona.
