The Space

(First of all, the price is for all the apartment, not for a room). The location can’t be better, it is just behind the antique Santa Maria del Mar Church and Picasso Museum, about five minutes walk from Las Ramblas and about five minutes walk to the old port of Barcelona on the sea. The district is the well-known EL BORN, a trendy area full of new design shops and cosy restaurants and pubs. All the area around is pedestrian. Just a few meters from the Picasso Museum in Montcada street and also to Mercat Santa Catalina where you have an amazing variety of fresh products such as fish and fruit. The flat is very lighting. It has 2 large bedrooms with 2 double beds (one is up stairs as big as a living room), one bathroom, a full-equiped kitchen and a living room with sofa, WI-FI, TV and DVD. Also refrigerator, microwaves, and all you need to feel at home ! Contact me for any doubt.

  • Great apartment in El Born. Only one flight of stairs and two separate bedrooms in addition to open plan LR/DR/Kit.

  • I am sorry having to share Lindsay's comments on the apartment.

    First of all, getting in was pretty easy. Though Roc wasn't around, there was no trouble in receiving the keys from a friend of his who has his shop right below the apartment. He was very helpful and friendly - thanks so much to Davide!

    When we first got in, we were very disappointed about the dark apartment which was not at all in such a good shape as prophesized on the pics. From there you might get the impression of a very well-lit apartment, clean, new, fully equipped. Though the floor and the bathroom were obviously clean, we just couldn't feel that comfortable as we wished to. I decided for this apartment because I expected it to be brightly lit, clean, well-located. It is well-located indeed, all kinds of shops and bars and attractions in easy reach. But due to the narrow little streets there was almost no light coming in, it was too hot and the fans as discussed by Lindsay didn't give any relieve at all. The smell of the streets - urine and garbage of any kind - is true, unfortunately. The tiles of the bathroom floor just seemed having been put there without fixing them to the ground. But the worst about it all were the ants in our bed and on the sofa and the cockroaches in the bathroom and the kitchen drawer (which I am not very surprised of regarding the big whole behind the toilet and around the tubes there).

    I am really sorry about this very negative comment. I am not too picky and I have lived in Spain for one year, so I am used to some bad smells and Spanish standards. But I never experienced any cockroaches in my flat and I am not ok with announcing a great-style aparment when in the end it is not at all. Sorry.

  • Roc was easy to contact, and was at the apartment when my friend arrived to check in.

    The apartment is fine, has comfortable beds, and is in a great location.

    The main floor bedroom is very nice, large window, high ceiling etc. The upstairs bedroom has very low ceilings, maybe 5 feet high. My husband and I could not stand up, and it was quite awkward to move and dress upstairs. The staircase leading upstairs is also very small. Not easy to move down when you are trying to get to the washroom in the middle of the night. Lots of tripping and bumping heads!

    The neighbourhood is nice, in that there are shops and restaurants everywhere, and you can walk everywhere. This particular street smells of urine and garbage all the time. There is no air circulation so you have to keep the windows open.

    Roc did have two fans, but they really just push the smell and hot air around.

    If you are staying in Barcelona in the summer, I recommend finding a location with air conditioning.

    The apartment looks a lot cleaner in the pictures then in person. The cleaning lady showed up while my friend had arrived, and stayed for two hours, but the washroom never really felt clean.

    If you're not picky about smells and heat, then this place will be fine. It is in a really cool location.

    We were all just very hot, we got sick, and it was very difficult to get a good nights sleep with the heat and the smell from the street.

    I don't like to complain, as we were very grateful to have a place to stay. Thank you Roc for your hospitality!

  • My friends & I love our stay at Roc's apartment. The location of the apartment is excellent, close to Picasso Museum, many cool shops, restaurants & bars. We walked everywhere & spent hours just exploring the neighbourhood. The apartment itself is very clean and cosy with clean & comfortable beds. Roc is very friendly, kind and accommodating host. Thank you very much for your warm hospitality, Roc!

  • The apartment is in a great central location for exploring the gothic quarter. Also very close to the Jaume metro stop. Close to lots of cool boutiques and delicious restaurants. It does get loud at night (mostly just weekend nights) because of the bars nearby, but it was no problem with simple earplugs we travel with! We both slept well. We loved having a big bedroom, and the whole place was very clean! Roc was there to greet us when we arrived and is such a kind man. Thank you very much for having us, we enjoyed it!
