The area of El Born is one of the most beautiful parts of the old town, with many choices to eat out, do trendy shopping and visit museums. Sightseeing is part of everyday life here!
The apartment has one double bedroom with comfortable double bed and storage space for unpacking.
There is also a double sofa bed in the living space.
The bathroom is equipped with a bath-tub, shower, wash basin and toilet.
In the living room there are typical wooden beams and floors, with a dining table to enjoy eating at home. The Santa Caterina Market, two blocks away, has a great variety of local food and wines. But if you rather have it outside, there is an infinity of great tapas bars, restaurants, bistros and even sushi bars.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to cook.
Located on the 2nd floor of a typical Born building without lift. The apartment has 2 balconies with views to a narrow street, perfect for a summer evening. We're located on a backstreet for what you'll be in the middle of everything without being bothered by the noise of the recurred streets nearby.
This is an ideal apartment for friends, family or couples. It is well located between the city centre and the beaches, and you can have a wonderful time exploring this very special part of Barcelona.
Wi Fi Available.
Full private apartment. Wifi. Amenities. No partying allowed in the house (life goes on outside, don't miss it!). No (website hidden) with local channels. 24 hour on duty for anything necessary.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to meet each one of our guests in person. We provide of recommendations on where to go eat and how to move around the city. We are delighted by any invitations to go out for a walk. Only if they ask us, otherwise we understand they rather explore by themselves.
One of Barcelona's best. Combines medieval architecture with locals and ex pats that live here. Very quiet neighborhood, still with a wide range of places to go eat and go shopping. Picasso Museum around the corner.
Best is to take Aerobus to Plaça Catalunya and walk from there for about 15 minutes through pedestrian streets to Jaume I metro station. We strongly discourage anyone to take the train, it takes forever and the combination is terrible. Please ask for a (website hidden) map itinerary for the walk, it's nice to get a first glimpse of the city and start locating yourselves.
50€ Cleaning fee.
Maria met us and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and the neighborhood. Great location - walk to almost all except Sagrada Familia and Montjuic. Clean, all facilities one needs. Just be sure you can climb 4 flights of stairs with your baggage, etc.
The apartment is in an ideal location, steps away from the Picasso Museum, great restaurants like Cal Pep, and night life. The place itself is cozy, well kept, and equipped with everything you need. Maria was an excellent host, meeting us when we got there with helpful tips about Barcelona and very responsive whenever I had a question. Definitely recommend her!
Cet appartement est très bien situé dans le centre. Juste à côté du musée Picasso du parc de la citadelle, et à 10 min de barceloneta ou de la place Cataloña. La cuisine toute neuve est super bien équipée (avec la machine à laver + le sèche linge). En somme un très bon appartement. Enfin Maria a toujours essayé d'être arrangeante et disponible, elle a été vraiment très sympathique. À bientôt !
L'appartamento è spazioso, molto curato, luminoso e dotato di tutti i comfort. Very cozy. Un posto in cui è davvero piacevole tornare la sera dopo le lunghe camminate barcellonesi. È vicinissimo alla cattedrale, a Santa Maria del Mare, al museo picasso e a due passi anche dalla metro. Il Born è una delle zone più caratteristiche anche per uscire la sera. Maria è stata una splendida host. Si è resa disponibile in tutto anche se abbiamo prenotato all'ultimo momento e ci ha dato degli ottimi consigli su posti da vedere e dove mangiare..bene ;-). Se tornaremo a Barcellona le chiederemo senz'altro di nuovo ospitalità. Raccomandabile in tutto. Grazie ancora Maria
Maria was a great host and so helpful in providing us with tourist information. She was always quick to reply to all of our questions and inquiries before arrival and during our stay. The apartment is clean, spacious and conveniently located. We were able to walk everywhere. Lots of markets, grocery stores, restaurants and nice little shops very close by.
Fantastic location -- central to a ton of stuff, but on a quiet street. During our stay the building opposite had been knocked down into an inactive construction site, which made for huge amounts of sunlight flooding in. Big, comfortable, clean bedroom, tons of closet space, nice living room, two small balconies. Bathroom is small but good; kitchen is a little bare-bones; laundry is a huge plus! Maria was immensely considerate, chilled-out, and helpful. Would love to stay again.
Maria's place has been great to visit. Good location, many cozy restaurants and bars near the apartment. Good distance from the beach and town. Visited it with a friend where we had a room each and it was no problem. All in all a good experience and could easily find to use Maria again.
