A double room in a serene apartment for rent in a historic building dating from the medieval period. On the doorstep you will find the Picasso museum, independent boutiques, art galleries, artists workshops, and this is the Borne area known for plenty of trendy bars and restaurants.
Every morning you will be served a delicious breakfast and when the weather permits this can be enjoyed on the private roofterrace, which you are also welcome to use throughout your stay, very well suited for a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing.
Several metro stations and bus stops are nearby, howewer most of the sights are within walking distance; the cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar, the beaches and Las Ramblas can be reached in less than 10 minutes.

It is not about listing and endless set of rules, basically my philosophy about the house is letting my guests using their common sense, being respectful, treating others as you like being treated and on top of that making the people staying here comfortable and helping them to make the most of their stay with me. My priority is always the comfort and wellbeing of my guests and I will go out of my way to achieve that goal.
You will be given a set of keys after the check in process, giving you complete freedom to go in and out at your will.
We just came back from a great stay over here! It's a very lovely appartment in a great neighbourhood (El Born), with a lot of nice tapas restaurants, boho cafes and small boutiques. It's very easy to get around here by foot, buss or metro. I would definitely recommend this place to everybody!
Nice room in very stylish appartment. Location is superb: Born area with lots of little streets, boutiques and restaurants. Next to Picasso Museum. You can hear the people in the other room talk, but if you don't mind that it is a great place to stay with a hospitable host.
Xavier was a fantastic host - we were coming fairly early in the morning and we had baggage, so he let us come to his apartment at 10am to drop our bags off (and our room was ready then too, so we were able to get settled in). The hot water wasn't working for one of the days we were there, so he let us use the shower in the flat he owns upstairs which he's renovating. His place is beautiful and the bedroom was large and very comfortable. Incredibly fast wifi as well, which was a positive for us! There are quite a few stairs up to his apartment, but they're not too narrow and are manageable. Fantastic location also - literally one door down from the Picasso Museum. Great part of Barcelona to be in. Would definitely recommend!
Great experience, the apartment is nice and very well designed. The bed is really comfortable, thanks Xavier for hosting us!
We have just returned from a great stay here, at Xaviers apartment. We had a fantastic visit here, and Xavier was a great host. The apartment is lovely, well equipped, with lovely breakfasts. The location was perfect too, next door to the Picasso Museum in the El Born ( gothic quarter). It was so easy to jump on the metro, buses and to walk everywhere too. Toby and I, visited the Parc Guell, Barceloneta beach, Casa Batllo, Sagrada familia, and the Picasso museum too, all with help from Xavier. El Born is a great area to stay in, with boho cafés, restaurants and shops. We definitely recommend staying here! Please note there are a lot of stairs up to the flat, so you need to be pretty fit!!
De ontvangst was prima, de locatie van het appartement fantastisch. We bleken het Picassomuseum als buren te hebben. Bovendien een heel gezellige wijk met volop tapas bars, restaurants en winkels. Een aanrader!
