You will be renting a fantastic apartment with 3 similar double bedrooms, right in the Barcelona's most exclusive neighbourhood; El Born.
The apartment is situated in the Roman historic centre of Barcelona, on a short walk from the Gothic Cathedral, Picasso museum and the beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella, close to the beach and subway and surrounded by pretty cafe terraces.
Perfect for up to 3 couples, groups, large families or independent travellers, this is the ideal base from which to explore Barcelona in style. As you will see from the reviews, everyone falls in love with it!
We are experienced airbnb hosts and take guest satisfaction very seriously. Whatever you need; from fresh sheets to restaurant recommendations, we're there to help.
Here is some more detailed information:
The living room has high ceilings, wooden beams and large double doors that open out to the small balcony to let the sunshine in and overlook the typical Barcelona streets. The livingroom is partly open to the clean kitchen, which makes the whole a spacious commune area. The kitchen is fully equiped with all utensils and a wooden dining table (great for lunch and dinner with good wine). - You might want to experiment with fresh ingredients from the Santa Catarina fresh food market just around the corner.
• Bathroom: with shower, bathtub and washing machine (rare in this area).
• Terrace: there is a roofterrace, so you can take the sun and eat your meal upstairs in the spanish sun without anyone seeing you.
• High Speed Internet.
There are three double bedrooms with in each room a double bed, night table and big closet. The rooms are clean and have (like the living area) white walls, high ceilings and wooden beams, very cosy and Barcelona style. Perfect to have a good rest after long days of strawling around the city.
Its all about location!
After a short walk you will be on Paseo del Born where you will find sunny cafe terraces, the picasso museum, boutiques and historical sights all clustered around the beautiful 14th century Santa Maria del Mar church.
The apartment is also just around the corner of the the Gothic Cathedral and the lovely Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can enjoy a morning walk in the sun around the lake.
Some of Barcelona's nicest cafe's and tastiest restaurants are all close-by. You will never get hungry, or bored, as in the street next, you are able to rent a GO-car to drive around the city and the beach is only a 20 min walk through the old town and harbor.
FROM THE AIRPORT: The easiest way to get to the apartment is simply to jump in a taxi outside the airport which will cost around 30€. If you're travelling along and want to save money there is a train link from the airport (T2) but trains only leave every hour or so (annoying if you just miss one) so it's easier and cheaper to jump on the blue AeroBus from the airport (7€ - leaves every 15 minutes) and then walk from the final stop Plaça Cataluña to the apartment (5-10 min walking).
BY TRAIN: If you are arriving by train, the apartment is right in the middle of 3 famous stations (all 5-10 min walking). Plaza Cataluña, Arc the triomf and the lovely Estación de Francia. This last one is also an excellent transport link to get to the beaches and some enjoyable day trips outside the city, for example, pretty Sitges, the Dali Museum in Figueras and the breathtaking monastery in Montserrat.
BY SUBWAY: The closests subway stations are: Urquinaona, Jaume 1 and Arc the triomf (all less then 4 minutes walking). They host the yellow line (to the beach) and red line (which connect you with the entire city).
Have a fun time planning your trip!

Awesome place in the center of Barcelona!!! Sanne is great and very helpful. You will not regret staying in this apartment!
The apartment is in a great location in the city for sure!
The apartment was really centrally located, very convenient to move in the city. Although it was really old, it was in good condition and the decoration was nice. Sanne was available for our questions and helped us to get the internet fixed in a few hours! I would go back again.
Sanne was really helpful, the apartment was clean and as described, in a great location near to all the sights, and we had a great time! Thoroughly recommended.
Very good stay indeed!
I stayed in Sannes apartment for a week in sep 2013. Sanne was a very good host. Easy to communicate wtih, she came back to me with short notice every time even though she was actually in China at the moment. She was very willing to give me information and helpful about whatever I needed.
The apartmnet was clean, light and fresh with 3 good bedrooms with comfortable doublebeds and spacious closets. The kitchen and bathroom was in good shape with all the necesary things you need and everything was marked with infosigns, so it was easy to find. The surrounding area was also quiet and nice, and the apartment was very good situated in the center of Barcelonas exciting areas, with walkingdistance to Plaza Catalunya where the airportbus goes, and near to the beach as well. (As a swede it´s also nice and comforting to see some IKEA furniture).
My overall opinion is that Sanne and her apartment was more than satisfactory. Very very good! It´s perfect if you are many people, a family or friends. I would definitely stay there again.
Sanne is a perfect "host", she really gives you a fantastic guidance. The location of the apartment is perfect, everything is just around the corner. You have plenty of space in the apartment for a family counting 5 persons! The apartment has also WiFi, which was just perfect for my teenage kids.
The entrance and the stairway to the apartment looks a "bit touch", but don´t pay attentions to this - inside iit's so cosy.
Its all about location for this apartment and the host itself! We stayed with three kids and rooms are spacious enough. Close to everything, shops, sights, metro, markets. Got to be prepared for lack of sleep due to noise coming from inside the building (must be paper-thin walls as typical for the entire city though...) and outside (less from people but some construction going on). Nevertheless, apartment is on a traffic restricted street (especially on weekends) and gets less walk/drive through traffic than neighboring districts. Very basic furnishing and interior (super old building!) but sufficient and kept as clean as possible. Sanne is a perfect host; super responsive and helpful in every way possible to make your stay as comfortable as can be! thank you Sanne!
Super séjour, Appartement très bien situé.....
Vraiment so happy !
Great stay overall.
The best things are the excellent location, price/value and cleanliness etc. Also, the roof terrace (not directly connected to apartment) was really nice for both breakfast and a glass of wine in the sunset.
The apartment was very basic furnished and had a basic standard overall. There is not so much cozy with this property, besides locataion. But when in Barcelona you don't sit around in the apartment. The balcony on the picture is VERY small.
Sanne was a great host.
This property provides clean, basic accommodation in a very handy location. The position of the apartment is fantastic - you are a minute or so away from many major sights, street playgrounds, bakery and grocery shops and some great boutique stores as well. You do need to be prepared for communal living - your neighbours are very, very close! The living area is spacious and comfortable. We found Sanne to be a wonderful host - extremely responsive and answered all our questions very promptly as well as checking in with us that everything was going well.
