A very cosy, super equipped, professionally decorated studio for 2, in the most artsy neighbourhood of Barcelona.
Well connected by train, metro and buses, behind the Picasso Museum, 3 minutes to Sta Maria del Mar, 10 to the beach.

The space

ElQuart is a studio apartment carefully renovated with all attention to detail and loads of love. I renovated it for myself with the highest spec and made of it a little nest.

Ideal for 2 people, it has a maximum capacity for 3 if you have visitors and you get along well.

I equipped it to the max and I managed to include in its small space everything. All appliances: washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, mixer, kettle, extractor fan, vitroceramic stove, fridge, radiator heaters, vacuum cleaner.... as well as amenities: thin-screen TV and the best WiFi internet.
To make your stay as comfortable as possible, I always leave an iron and a board, hair dryer, even a sun umbrella, beach towels and a ball.
Decorated professionally, I think it has a wow factor to it. It is an open space, with a great vibe and a lot of light from its 4 windows and balcony.
You will also have access to the roof terrace, but unfortunately is no longer furnished because every community has to have an angry neighbour.
Please note that elQuart is on the 4th floor and like many buildings in the Ciutat Vella, it has no elevator.

It is located in the Born neighbourhood, the cutest and most pleasant area of the Ciutat Vella, the old part of town. It has been a place for merchants and retailers since the 13th century, modernised in the last years. It is mostly pedestrian and full of small shops, restaurants, terraces and bars, museums and art galleries

El Quart´s location is just ideal: just behind the Picasso Museum, a block´s away from the Paseo del Born with its nice terraces, another block to the beautiful Ciutadella Park, 3 to Santa Maria del Mar and only 10 minutes walk to the beach.
There are 3 lines of metro stops close by as well as bus stops.

I put a lot of pride into renting this flat and take my tenants seriously. It would be my pleasure to give you tips, help you with anything, make sure that you have all you need for a great stay.

My wife and I stayed at Josune's place in the El Born neighborhood of Barcelona and it was absolutely amazing. The location is perfect with tons of bars, restaurants and parks to choose from immediately outside. We also had everything we needed in the apartment and more. Josune is such a wonderful person and a fantastic host to say the least. Without a doubt, I'd highly recommend Josune's place to anyone looking for a place in a great location and beautiful apartment.

Josune is the best host ever! She is very responsive and always willing to help out or give recommendations. The apartment is well appointed and ideally located for easy access to the waterfront, parks, metro, and great food and nightlife. We stayed for 3 weeks and could not have asked for a better experience or host. I hope to return soon and will definitely stay here if it is not booked up. Thanks Josune!

Josune is the perfect hostess. Communication is prompt and her suggestions are spot on. The studio apartment is exactly as pictured. It is very clean, fully equipped and centrally located--nearby public transportation, lots of restaurants, bars, shops, museums, parks. As others have mentioned, there is no elevator. Pack lightly. There is a clothes washer for your use. Five flights of narrow stairs, adds to the charm and experience! Josune arranged a taxi for us from the airport, which ensured not getting lost. And, Josune allowed an early check in, since our flight arrived at 0900 on a Sunday morning. This was important to us after 30 hours of air travel! We stayed 7 days, and will happily book again with Josune, when we have an opportunity to return to Barelona!

Thank you Jodi and Scott, you were the perfect guests, impeccable I can say. Yeah, I know about those stairs but it is actually unusual to find elevators in the old part of town. They are 4 flights, to be accurate and this is clearly explained in the description. Jodi, you have a home in Barcelona.

We flew 32 hours from Hawaii to Barcelona so we were burnt out and jet lagged when we arrived. Josune was waiting in her flat with a bottle of wine for us which was wonderful. Perfect location for us .no need to rent a car you can walk to cafes and bars without problem. Her place was comfortable ready and clean. We stayed 10 days and it was a great experience. She checked in with us from time to time to make sure we had every thing we needed. Over all a very good choice. When we come back we will stay at her place.

As we relocated to Barcelona Josune's flat was our first stop. Josune is a wonderful host: she made all prior arrangements for us, was very communicative and helpful at all stages of our stay. The apartment itself is indeed a gem. It's quiet, has good energy and surely is in the center of everything. We loved staying at Josune's apartment and are very thankful for everything she's done to make our stay super special, comfortable and safe. Muchas gracias chica!

What a beautiful and unforgettable experience. Josune was extremely nice, helpful and full of lovely and unexpected surprises for us. She really took care of every single detail since the very beginning, responded to all emails and gave us such a warm and special welcome in her beautiful gem in El Born. The neighbourhood is lovely .The cosy flat is just great, decorated with love and taste. It has all you need for a great stay. Everything in there is excellent t. It could not be better situated, in a very quiet little street, giving the possibility to walk almost everywhere. Culture, shopping, nice walks, wonderful food and very much more are just around the corner. Josune always provided extremely useful information and advice for unforgettable places and always available for more and more! She is really on the top of everything, full of good ideas. We highly recommend her cosy place not only because of the wonderful geographical situation but because you can hardly find such a complete experience with an amazing host. We are definitely planning to go back! Thank you very much Josune for our lovely winter and spring time there!
