Wonderful studio in one of Barcelona's best quarters. Paco's house hosts upto four people:
2 in double bed,
1 in single bed, in separate bedroom;
1 in expandable couch.
It's ideal for couples, very cosy and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable:
WIFI (with one of the fastest and reliable speeds in Spain)
It's location is Strategic at the heart of Born neighbourhood, from where you can either walk everywhere, or take the metro to see other parts of the city.
Close to some of the best restaurant, shops, bars you plan to visit and many of Barcelona's places of interest such as: the Picasso Museum, the Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral, the Cathedral, Santa Caterina Market, Convent de Sant Agustí and so on. Also at a walking distance from Las Ramblas, Parc Ciutadella, Arc de Triomf and the beach.
Nearest metro stations are: Arc de Triomf (L1, red line) & Jaume I (L4, yellow line). Buses are around the corner but, who wants them? It's a great occasion to rent bikes and see the city from the eyes of the local. We can recommend good bike rentals on-the-block.
The square in which the apartment's located in is alive and has a great ambiance, as you enter the house, you will be surrounded by terraces and people chilling on a friday afternoon after work. Regardless the fact that this is a party wise area, the noise proof windows will make you forget about the fuzz downstairs as you won't hear a peep. You can check this on our reviews. A good night's sleep is guaranteed!
We'll be happy to give you tips on the non touristy places as well as directions on how to move around. Benvingut a Barcelona!
This is a great little apartment in an excellent part of Barcelona. The apartment is on a plaza where you can watch the world go by. The apartment has everything you need and the newly renovated bathroom is lovely. There are several excellent cafes and restaurants a few steps away and for the NZ and Australians a great flat white coffee is a 30 second walk! Maria was a great host and we were able to leave our bags on the last day as there were no new guests coming which was a great help. HIghly recommended if you want an authentic experience.
The apartment is located wonderfully in the center of the city, within walking distance to everywhere. The street and surrounding area are quite lively at night, there are a couple of bars and restaurants on the square in front of the apartment.
We were three persons staying in the apartment and it did not feel crowded at all.
The apartment is in good condition and comes with a small kitchenette where you can make some tea or coffee.
The Wi-Fi works great.
Maria was very helpful waiting for us when we arrived and in general is a very nice person.
A cute apartment, perfectly located, we absolutely enjoyed our stay there and would like to come back to it any time again!
Maria was a great host. It'a nice and clean apartment. We had a wonderful time. Perfect location for exploring Barcelona. Also this apartment will always be special for me because my boyfriend proposed to me infront of the entrance at Carrer d'Allada Vermell,
Nice clean little appartment in very central location. Many nice restaurants and shops in close proximity. Only minus was the shower, which flooded the entire bathroom if you didn't pay attention, but we were aware of this due to previous reviews. The flexible check-out time was convenient since we had an evening flight back and could stay in the appartment until 2pm. Would stay here again.
We have a great stay in Maria's residence. The position of the Apartment and the furnishing war perfect for three persons. The district was really nice and good dinner and Bars on the place below. It was easy to get anywhere we liked
We stayed in the apartment for two nights in September 2013.
It's nice and clean, good value in the middle of the ancient city of born.
We would consider booking it again if going back to Barcelona soon.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in El Born at Cute & Centric and Maria could not do enough for us. The apartment is very basic but we found it comfortable and loved the area which seems to be always buzzing.
Fantastic little apartment right in the heart of the city. A short walk to the cathedral, La Rambla and easy access to Placa Catalunya where you can find your way around any part of the city. Would massively recommend it to people who want an authentic experience and to enjoy local bars and tapas. The appartment is ideal for no more than three people. The bathroom does flood a little bit but hardly an inconvenience. The whole trip was made that more enjoyable with this appartment. The neighbourhood is safe, there are plenty of places to visit nearby at night and the bars in the square outside really add to the ambience. Cannot wax lyrical enough about it! Maria was always on hand to answer questions and provide information and made the entire process very easy and relaxed for us. Will not hesitate to go back.
Brilliant location, away from the noise of La Rambla but still in a central location with lots to do nearby. Maria was very helpful with lots of useful information. We enjoyed listening to the hustle and bustle of the cafes within the square, and wouldn't hesitate to re-book when we visit Barcelona again.
