Exquisite studio in Barcelona Born

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer de Corretger, Barcelona, Catalonia 08003, Spain

A very cosy, super equipped, professionally decorated studio for 2, even 3, 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, to catch some sun rays or enjoy a glass of wine in a balmy night.
Please note that elQuart in on the 4th floor and like most buildings in the old town, 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.

  • Josune is a very nice and helpful host and her flat is a really great place for a good time in Barcelona. It's very close to the Calle de Princesa and you can do a lot of sightseeing and shopping by walking.
    The flat itself is very nice designed, everything (including the heating and warm water) is working just fine. The shower is a little special at first because there is not a lot of water pressure (which is because the flat is on the 4th floor in an old building) and it is in the middle of the bathroom, but you'll get used to it! The bed is very cosy, the place is very calm at night (and at daytime) and the flat has a kitchen with full equipment, even a small dishwasher and a washing-maschine.
    I can highly recommend this beautiful place and i try to come back one day!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Josune's studio in Barcelona. She has a wonderful multi-paged guide for the apartment with suggestions for food, shopping and site seeing. The studio is in a WONDERFUL location, on a side road that helps keep things quiet but only blocks away from La Ramba and the coast! Even with three people, there was plenty of space in the studio, with enough amenities for anything that we needed. Gracias, again!

  • The flat is very nice and clean and it is located perfectly for those interested in sightseeing as you can get almost anywhere on foot and the metro and other public transport are also very near. The area around the house is very interesting and has an amazing atmosphere with narrow streets, old houses, shops, cafes, etc. We stayed there for a month in December with two kids (a toddler and a baby) and there was everything we needed: a washing machine, a dishwasher, all the kitchen stuff and expendables, tea and coffee, a good fridge, an oven and a microwave, two large beds, a big TV (we didn't watch it a lot, though, as there were much more interesting things around), and a lot of storage space for the things we brought with us (we had quite many). The wireless internet connection was very good, which was important for me, as I had to do some work online from Barcelona. Josune is a perfect host and a wonderful personality. She was very busy when we came, but she still came to see us and was ready to do everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. She got us the key from the storage downstairs to keep our pram so we didn't have to take it to the 4th floor every time (which was very good as the house has no elevator) and arranged a taxi from the airport with a big car for our luggage, a carseat for the toddler and a very nice driver. Enrique who checked us in and out was very nice and helpful, and both kids loved him. Our first experience with airbnb couldn't have been better, and of course, if we ever go to Barcelona again, we would like to stay with Josune again.

  • I enjoyed staying at the Exquisite studio in Barcelona. The studio is quite nice and comfortable. It is also well-located (somewhere in between the metro stations Arc de Triomph and Jaime I). There are many restaurants and bars in walking distance. I liked that neighborhood. The access to the studio was easy and the host Josune was very kind. I would definitely visit again Barcelona and stay in the same studio.

  • Everything was great and as stated in the description. The flat is very cute, very clean and very well located. WLAN is working perfectly and the flat is well equipped. The shower/ bathroom is very tiny, but for a couple of days it doesn't bother at all. Contact to Josune was very nice, she responded quickly, took care of us while we were there and didn't only provide us with a lot of useful information, but also with a nice bottle of cava. While we spent three days in pouring rain, Josunes studio was the perfect place to recover from the wet and the cold. We will come back!

  • This was my first experience with airbnb and it couldn't have been better. I was just so lucky to stay at Josune's very nice studio. It really felt like home. I even slept better! The flat has everything you need, it's well equipped - also for longer stays. It even a roof terrace where you can enjoy the sunset. The location of the flat is just perfect. It's in the middle of my favorite "barrio", where you can find lot's of nice restaurants and bars just around the corner. And it's quite close the beach of Barcelona. Josune is just such a nice, helpful and trustful person. And she has a great sense of humor! The perfect host. I'm very happy I got the chance to meet her. I can definitely recommend staying at her place and I'm sure I will come back again. Muchas gracias a ti, querida Josune!

  • We had a great stay at Josune's flat in El Born for 2 months. The apartment is very well decorated and located in one of the most charming neighborhoods in Barcelona. All the best attractions are within walking distance, and El Born has tons of great restaurants and shops. Josune was a great host, offering help and advice whenever we needed it. She was so kind and welcoming. We can truly say we felt at home while staying in her cozy apartment. It is a perfect place for couples or a few friends. You won't be disappointed!

I was born in Spain but have lived most of my life overseas. About 5 years ago I decided it was time to come to the motherland and Barcelona was a no-brainer destination. You know why, this city is truly amazing. Everything goes at a different rhythm in my country, my life slower and simpler as well. I am a freelance business consultant to support my acting. My client is based in London, my family in the Basque Country, my friends dispersed all over the world, so unavoidably there is a lot of traveling. Because no matter how hard I try to settle in one place, I will always be a nomad. I try hard to be a good, friendly hostess and will make all efforts to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Having lived in all continents, I love to have foreigners around me. I speak 6 European languages, love to tell you about my favourite places and if there´s something fun going on, I will let you know.
