Double bedroom with a queen size beed and a large closet with slidiing doors. Plenty of light as it has two windows that face a pedestrian street with views over a florist´s
Great location, great apartment and Horacio's great attention to detail made our stay really enjoyable. Highly recommended!!!
Stayed for MWC, it's an easy commute from apartment to Fira, the location is just perfect and overall it's a really convenient and comfortable place to stay at. Horacio gave really great tips on restaurants and places to meet the clients. Would do same next year.
Horacio is a very friendly and helpful host. The apartment is spotless and very well located in the heart of El Born. I give 4 stars only because of the construction work in the shop below the apartment. A temporary issue and not Horacio's fault at all but the noise started around 8am and shook us out of the sleep every morning.
thanks again for your visit I am glad you were comfortable in my apartment. My apologies, I had not idea the GStar shop close to the apartment was going to do some renovation. Will be finished in one week time, they are opening a new Desigual shop.
Looking forward to meeting you again, Kind regards Horacio
Apartment as described, lovely and roomy even for seven women. Fantastic location, everything easy to access.
Went to Salamanca restaurant on the beach front, recommended to us by Horacio, food was gorgeous and the service was best we have had in a long time, they went the extra mile for birthday girl.
Would definitely use this apartment again.
Easy check in check out, everything went really easy.
Many thanks Horacio
Horacio is a great very friendly host! The place is like what you see in the pictures. It's a nice place, location is superb! Walking distance take you to catalunya, passeig de Gracia, la ramblas, and el born. There's a supermarket just across the street. Metro is 2-3 mins walk.
Great location near to the Ramblas. Perfect for big group. Clean flat with all commodities. The flat is an old building.
Horacio is a very nice host. He has been very flexible regarding our check out. He knows very well Barcelona if you have any queries.
It was a great stay and i will use airBnB again.
Best host ever and great apartment! Horacio was extremely helpful in all pre-trip planning, flexible when we made some changes to our booking, super friendly in person and quick to respond to the one minor problem we had (the gas canister just needed changing out for hot water). The apartment is in a perfect location for exploring Barcelona and has loads of space (there were 9 of us) - totally recommend it and thanks to Horacio for giving the trip that extra feel-good factor :)
Location of flat cannot be beat. El Borne neighborhood is definitely the place to be. Flat is spacious and comfortable. Beds nice and soft. Showers with plenty of hot water. Design cool and contemporary. Best bars restaurants and street shows can be found just down those many stairs.
On the downside, flat could use a little TLC - door knobs fall off, kitchen wall looks dirty, privacy shade between bedroom and kitchen is held up by scotch tape, wardrobe door has a dent like someone punched it in. Small details but they add up to give apartment a bit of a tired look. Also lighting is pretty dim and many tall uneven steps to reach the apartment. Stair rail on apartment floor must be fixed. It does not look safe. Make sure you have everything before each time you leave the apartment. In short I wish apartment owners/managers realize a fraction of their earnings must go towards routine maintenance.
I hope you are greeted by Horacio and NOT Diego. The first is a sweetheart, the second not so much...
To sum up, I would definitely stay there again but apartment is not for older people or family with small children on account of the many stairs to reach it.
many thanks for choosing my loft apartment in the heart of the Born area and for taking the time to write this honest review.Thank you also for pointing out again the little damages that you mentioned to me on the day you were checking out. All of them have been already sorted out, except for the building not having a lift.
I am happy that you enjoyed your visit and that you appreciate so much the Born area, is my favourite part of Barcelona.
Is a pity you had that sensation of the Kitchen walls when the whole apartment had been totally repainted just 2 weeks before you entered!!!.
Hope to see you soon back in Barcelona and that next time I may invite for a glass of a good red wine.
All the best Horacio
Appartement en parfait état, très propre très fonctionnel correspondant à la description. Grande cuisine pouvant accueillir sans problème 8 personnes ainsi qu'un grand salon pouvant être transformé en 4eme chambre. Quartier calme très plaisant au cœur de la vielle ville avec toutes les commodités à proximité (commerces, marché couvert, parking...). Horacio a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable tant par la rapidité avec laquelle il a toujours répondu à nos nombreuses questions que par les informations touristiques qu'il a pu nous donner.
Merci Christine pour avoir choisi mon appartement pour votre escapade de fin d'année à Barcelone! Ce fut un plaisir de vous accueillir avec votre famille et je suis heureux que l'appartement et le quartier vous aient plus. Le Born est en effet une petite perle et c'est aussi un de mes endroits préférés pour prendre un verre en terrasse ou pour diner avec des amis. J'espère que nous aurons l'occasion de nous rencontrer si toutefois vous décidez de revenir en visite!
Horacio is a great host and his apartment was amazing! The location was perfect, when I go back to Barcelona I will definitely try to rent the apartment again!
