A charming and contemporary styled 56 sqm apartment with room for upto 4 guests, with the following amenities:
Cot on request
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 the 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.
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.
Lovely little apartment in a great location. We found most places of interest / nice bars and restaurants / the main shopping streets etc all to be within a 15 min radius from the flat. It's particularly easy to get around the beautiful gothic quarter and the Ramblas area. There is a metro stop a few minutes up the road, from where you only have to travel one stop to get to Barceloneta beach.
The apartment is not particularly fancy but is tidy and has everything you could need. The bedroom is spacious, the bathroom small but clean, and the kitchen is large with a big fridge / hob / all utensils. The only downside is the actual street which the apartment is on, which is quite run-down looking (but still feels safe as so central). Maria was a great host and we had a great stay here.
We had a great stay! The location was excellent and the apartment was great. We would definitely recommend the apartment to any of our friends.
Maria, our host, and our time in Barcelona was the absolute all time BEST !!! Maria immediately made us feel welcome and made our entire stay comfortable. She thoroughly highlighted everything we'd need to know to navigate around El Born and neighboring areas and was always just a phone call away.
The lovely accommodations were perfectly suited for us. Clean, nicely decorated & updated appliances made our travels to neighboring cities easy. The flat gave us a nice place to call - HOME while traveling so far from the States. We ❤️d the entire experience & would not travel to Spain any other way.. Xoxo
We had an amazing week at this place. Firstly, María Y Candela is an amazing host - she was very welcoming, gave great local tips on everything including bike rentals and haircuts, and generously offered a lot of flexibility in terms of check-in and check-out time. Secondly, the apartment is located in a superb district, very close to all main sights and activities - park to do jogging in the morning, Barceloneta beach, gothic quarter, passeig de gracia - all nearby, not to mention that El Born itself is full of authentic local restos, bars and shops. The flat itself is well equipped with everything, clean, neat and stylish, and in a perfectly calm place (calm even on a day of a national holiday celebration). A small rooftop included! I would strongly recommend María Y Candela's place to anyone visiting Barcelona.
We really enjoyed staying at Maria Y Candela's! The location is excellent — very close to Picasso Museum, to Santa Caterina Market, about 10 minute walk from Ciutadella Park, lots of bars, restaurants, shops within reach and at the same time the street itself is very quiet. The apartment is clean, well equiped, it is light and spacious. Maria is an excellent host! Very friendly, very helpful, very flexible about check-in and check-out time. Would love to stay there again!
I would recommend Maria y Candela wholeheartedly. They are a small agency. I had problems with agencies in the past, but Maria y Candela were head and shoulders above other agencies. They dealt with me professionally and courteously. I stayed for three weeks in the flat and they were immensely helpful, kind and friendly.
The flat is in a fantastic location, very near the Born area but also (miraculously) on a side alley so that it was completely silent at night. For two people it is extremely comfortable. The bed is large. A third or fourth person can easily sleep on the comfortable futon in the living/dining room, and I did this for 3 nights. The kitchen is a separate room, which is unusual and great.
I was here for an extended period and really very pleased indeed.
I spent five nights in September in this flat, my very first airbnb experience, and found it a very nice alternative to staying in a hotel. The best thing about this flat was its location- in the middle of everything but still in a peaceful little street. You can walk everywhere, and you have loads of cafes, restaurants and shops around you. The flat itself was also to my taste, sparcely furnished and modern. An important criteria when choosing it was the bed- it had to be big enough for me and my lady friend ( as we are not a couple). We slept very well in it!
I had a nice correspondence with Maria and Candela before our arrival, and it was a pity we didn´t meet them after all- they went on holiday the day before. But we were welcomed by Jessica, a lovely person who gave us lots of advice. We had a fantastic stay in Barcelona and we can warmly recommend this flat.
