The Cuitadella Park is 5min away ,with its gardens and fountains and pleasant atmosphere, is definitely worth visiting. Just behind the park there is the zoo! The barceloneta beach is also a fifteen-twenty minute walk away. For shopping there are a lot of choices, from small trendy designer shops in the neighborhood to great shopping malls like the new Arena Mall built in the old Bull Fighting Arena at Plaza España only four stops away on the metro or all the shopping zone around plaza Cataluña with all the label name stores.

The neighborhood of Born is fabulous. It was well located on a pedestrian street. A little noisy at night but a perfect location. The room was clean and simple the other people in the apartment were very nice. I loved the area and Barcelona would definitely recommend to others.
AMAZING LOCATION! On the central street of atmospheric Born, a 10/15 minute walk to the beach and in the heart of a very cool area. Bed was very comfortable, and the balcony was great! If you're looking for peace and quiet maybe choose another room in the flat, but then you will lose out on the lovely view onto the street and the charming balcony itself, which I recommend. The room is indeed large and sunny. The only thing is that the single narrow mirror could make it hard if you are more than 2 people in the room. The rest of the flat was ok, functional. There was never an issue with hot water running out whilst we were there. The kitchen was a bit depressing- small and dark, but that didn't bother us much. The hosts were very helpful with arrival and giving us information... I had the impression that if we needed them they would respond very quickly!
We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad in Laura's appartement. Een prima kamer (vooral gezien de prijs) en vooral een hele fijne locatie om de stad te leren kennen. Vlakbij het strand, midden in het gezellige El Born. Laura was er niet, maar Roberto ontving ons heel hartelijk.
De badkamer is wat verouderd, maar daar is verder weinig op aan te merken. Gewoon een goede spot!
Vi havde 5 dejlige dage i Barcelona, Born, i den charmerende bolig. Lejligheden ligger lige ud til et torv, hvor der er meget liv og snak. Ingen trafiklarm, men en evig summen af den store by og de mange mennesker der (email hidden) der. Billederne af værelset snyder lidt. Værelset er mindre og ikke så lyst som på billedet. Køkkenet var meget slidt og ikke rent. Men det var ikke noget der spolerede vores tur.
The location of this airbnb room is absolutely perfect for a long weekend visit to Barcelona - its right in the lovely gothic el born district, perfect for meandering around to museums, lovely bars, and delicious restaurants. Great value. The room and flat itself was very clean, and the artwork was fun!
The bed was comfortable, and though you could hear the street the whole time, it just made the city feel right at your doorstep. Just to note - the writing desk pictured isn't in the room, so if you're planning to do some work like I was, you'll be more easily distracted by the city outside!
I think others have also mentioned this, but it's important to note that Laura doesn't live at the flat and instead hires Michele to look after her Airbnb guests. Michele is lovely, very welcoming, but this pass over of people does cause some problems with communication. The couple of days leading up to my arrival, I send Laura couple emails, as well as SMSs to her and Michele and didn't get a response back from Laura until late that night, after I arrived. Michele also said that she can't send texts, so my texts asking if she'd received any of my texts before my arrival went unanswered (a bit worrisome when you're running late while trying to find your way to a new city!) Michele did pick up my call, but otherwise communication was limited during my stay because she wasn't able to text back.
I had a great time there. The apartment has the best location close to good restaurants, cafés, bars, the beach and touristic spots.
It's very cozy and clean. I did not have the opportunity to meet Laura, but she sent Michele to welcome me. She was helpful and pleasant.
