The Neighborhood

In a beautiful location to base your Barcelona stay - really good for short stays where you want to see everything and travel as little as possible.
"Low" in El Borne neighbourhood, this apartment is surrounded by the best Barcelona has to offer and with plenty of little terrazas where you can sit and sample the local cuisine and watch the world go by.

Getting around

A 3 min walk from Parc de Ciutadella and 5 minutes from the bustling small streets of El Borne brimming with very cool bars, boutique shopping and the spectacular gothic cathedral Santa Maria del Mar.
It`s 5 min walking to the old port (Port Vell) and Barceloneta with it`s old fishing town feel (and the best seafood restaurants in Barcelona), 10 minute walk to the "Ramblas" and the amazing greenmarket "la boquería"...
The nearest METRO stations are Liceu.(green line) and Barceloneta (yellow line).

  • Nous avons été reçu par un agent (website hidden) aurait pu nous rassurer sur le logement. Mais malheureusement nous sommes arrives dans un appartement qui n'était pas conforme aux photos. Nous avions choisi cet appartement car il y avait 3 chambres doubles. Il n'y avait en fait que deux chambres doubles et un clic clac dans le salon.

  • The flat is really nice, it has 4 bedrooms with 3 king size beds. 2 of the king size bedrooms have a balcony where you can look to plaza de les olles, even if it is not a big balcony.
    For me this apartment has everyhting what you need, good beds, nice living room, perfect kitchen and the best location in el born. 10min to la rambla, 10 min to barceloneta and 5 min to gothic.
    I was really happy with my choice, hope I can help some of you guys with my experience.

  • Me and four friends stayed at Angela and Asaf's apartment from the 26th till the 1st of October. Our first impression of the apartment was good, would not call it sunny nor huge, the living room don't have any windows, so quite dark. The apartment is posted as being 100m2, it is at the most 75m2. Out of the 4 full days we had almost 2 days without water, I talked to Asaf about this, the first time it was back after seven hours, the second time I tried to call without luck, I also send Angela 2 mail but never heard back from either of them. The water did come back a few hours before our flight, but would have been nice with some info. The only really good thing I can say about this apartment is the location which is great. But I would not stay at this apartment again.

  • Positives: Checking in was easy and timely and the location is great: on a quiet pedestrian street near to a Metro station and lots of restaurants and bars. 10 mins walk from the beach. The apartment is a decent size and was clean and comfortable when we stayed there. Angela is a very personable and friendly communicator.

    Negatives: The water stopped working on our first night and didn't come back on until mid-morning. This meant that my colleagues and I couldn't shower before leaving for the day. Angela was apologetic and kind about it, but she was out of the country (don't know if this is a regular thing) and I was very unimpressed with the letting agent who didn't seem to care at all. The water cut out again for a few hours the following morning, so I guess there are plumbing problems there. The people in the apartment upstairs informed us that they have had frequent problems with the building.

    I would recommend Angela as a host but I would be very hesitant to stay here again given the lack of care shown by the people on the ground in Barcelona when something went wrong.

About
I grew up in Sydney, Australia and moved to London at 24, gave it a good 10 years and now I've found Barcelona and Asaf. To me, Barcelona is the love child of these two very different cities: Its the perfect combination of the good weather, relaxed and active lifestyle of Sydney and the bustling, centre-of-the-world ness of London. Asaf and I love to show visitors what Barcelona is for us: The creativity, architecture and music. The beach, cycling, BBQs with friends, wonderful food and amazing weather. It'(email hidden) to call home for a little while. In my spare time I crochet and I have a little Etsy shop called Churchill Handmade. My creations are all from natural fibres like wools, hemp, bamboo and organic cotton because I think we all need a bit more nature in our lives.
