We are two people living in a large 4 bedroomed, spacious and gay friendly apartment in the very heart of Barcelona's El Born district. We have two rooms available to rent, each with a double (matrimonial) bed. We have full high speed WIFI throughout the apartment.
Small, intimate, friendly and funky, 'Born' is where just about everything fashionable is happening now - in art, clothes design, interior decoration, smart restaurants, cool cocktail lounges, chic wine bars and hip dance clubs. The area has two distinct personalities, daytime, and nighttime. The former, you can shop till you drop or spend your days visiting one of the many museums (including the Picasso museum) or monuments in the area, the latter, you can wine, dine and soak up the atmosphere, or head out to one of the many bars or clubs (you won't need a taxi to get home!).
Plaza Catalunya, the infamous Las Ramblas, the port, Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral, and the beach are all within a 10 minute walk, as well as the Parc de la Ciutadella, the stunning Palau de la Musica and the Barcelona Zoo. We are also close to Estación de Franca, international train station, Jaume 1, Urquinoana and Catalunya metro stations, which gives easy access to the 3 main metro lines.
El Born has it all. Just imagine Soho, Covent Garden and Notting Hill all rolled in to one.
We love Barcelona and want you to love it as much as we do. That is why we are happy to tell you all of our favourite places, and some of Barcelona's best kept secrets which the average tourist doesn't find out about.
You will have the use of our comfortable living space, bathroom and separate WC, as well as our fully equipped kitchen. A basic breakfast will be provided for you to take at your leisure, or should you prefer something more extravagant you can step out of the front door and choose one of the many bakeries or cafes. Free coffee, tea, water and milk is included. With the Mercado Santa Caterina just on our doorstep, you can enjoy fresh produce, meat and fish at anytime of the day.

The apartment is located at a very good location in the center of barcelona, where most of the action is happening, close 3 minutes walking from the La Rambla street.
When we first arrived and entered the apartment we got a very clean room, where the door is going straight to the living room. 90% of the time, nobody was present at the living room so we had our own area, quiet, clean and private.
The kitchen is very much accessorized, with pots, pans, cutlery and everything else needed for cooking. It has also a large refrigerator, Nespresso machine with coffee tablets and cereal for a fast breakfast. Nearby the apartment you can find a cheap supermarket and a great local market, where you can buy all the things you want for cooking in general.
Paul was very nice and kind, he explained us specifically about nearby places where we should go, such as supermarkets, good local restaurants, and tourist locations not-to-miss. We went to some of the places he recommended and were never disappointed.
Paul is very much aware of the apartment and taking care of all the important, as well as the things: Cleaning the apartment, activating dishwasher, cleaning the toilets, making sure we have toilet paper and fresh & clean towels all the time. Hot water is available all the time.
The apartment itself is looking just great. The living room is equipped (email hidden) and sofas to lay down and watch a good movie. It also has cable-ready VGA & HDMI including adapters for your computers, if you are willing to bring your own. The room has a king-size bed suitable easily for two, very comfortable and great for resting after a busy day in Barcelona.
Generally, I would recommend this apartment for anyone, from lonely pals that are looking for a place to put their head to young couples that want to enjoy a beautiful apartment in the center of Barcelona. The experience was great, Paul gave us everything we needed and much more, and made sure we had a blast during our stay in the city. I can say that definitely, when I will be back to another trip in Barcelona I will contact Paul again. Gracias, Senior!
Had a great visit in Barcelona with Paul. We even walked about the city and got a sense of my bearings. Great host, very polite, clean and tidy, and gave me a very welcome experience.
One star off was because of the single-pane windows, which meant you heard all the street noise at night; garbage collection and younger catalonians whooping it up, and the windows made it was generally chilly. Upstairs dog didn't help matters, because it would bark at any disturbance in the night, compounding the noise.
Mind you, we had particularly chilly weather at that time, and I bet the rest of the year is actually quite wonderful because of the design to keep it cool.
Paul is a great host, very friendly and a gentleman, offered me full access to his kitchen including cereals and coffee machine. The apartment, located extremely well, and a very short walk of many eating places, the gothic quarter, metro stop, and everything else. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable.
"Clean, Modern & Very Very Central": the perfect name for this flat. The owner Poul is the perfect gentleman we spent in that place a great time. I suggest to everyone than want visit Barcellona this location. We were satisfied a lot and, last but not least, we will return in the future. Thanks Paul for your kindness.
My husband and I loved staying at Paul's place, the location was perfect, right in the heart of the city and we could walk to many interesting places. The apartment is very nice, modern, spacious and so clean. The room was very comfortable and it was very nice for us to go back to such a place after a long day around the city. Paul was not there during our stay but he made all the necessary arrangements to make our stay comfortable and pleasant, he even left us a bottle of wine! We stayed with Paul's friend, Darren, and he was very nice and friendly and was helpful in giving us information on how to get around the city. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this place!!
Paul maintains an excellent and oh so central room in Catalunya I would highly recommend to anyone. You see the Gaudi Cathedral 70 meters from your front door and everything else Barcelona offers. Plenty of walking only streets all around the neighborhood. And Paul was the gracious host; answering all touristy questions cheerfully and recommending good restaurants and places to visit. A 5 star location in an excellent building. Real value.
Paul is amazing host ..make u fill like home ..he help us to find good restaurants and it's nice to have a local friend when u travel ..im sure that at my next trip to Barcelona I'll be in touch Again
This apartment is really centrally located. We were near restaurants and shopping. It was a close walk to La Rumblas. You can hop onto the Metro and be at all the tourist attractions within minutes. Also, the apartment was very clean. Paul and his roommate were wonderful! We enjoyed our stay very much!
Perfect location. Welcoming, friendly and helpful! Thanks :) Was fab!
Wonderful apartment! Super clean and in a fabulous location. Right in the middle of all the action in Barcelona.
Paul was very helpful and gave us great tips. He was very generous with letting us have access to everything in the apartment. He even stocks a shelf in the fridge for renters! Just very kind and makes you feel welcome.
My boyfriend and I will hopefully get more time to get to know him next time.
Thanks Paul!!! We had a wonderful experience.
