Beautiful and bright private double room for rent for 1, 2 or 3 people in a cool shared apartment in Passeig del Born, one of the nicest and alive areas in Barcelona old city. The apartment is located few steps of the imponent Santa Maria del mar Church and Picasso museum, 5 minutes to the beach and is Great for shopping and go out for a drink, tapas bars, restaurants and clubs. The room is spacious and totally furnished with double bed, Sofa bed, wardrobe, etc...and it has a nice balcony where you can sit and watch people walking on the paseo. There is nice living room area, kitchen and 2 toilets one shower and Internet WIFI. There are 4 rooms in total in the apartment, only travelers staying here in the summer and sometimes one or two med-term rent in the winter.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any question you may have.
Looking forward to welcome you in Barcelona!
Me quedé en el piso durante un mes. El piso es de 4 habitaciones, y estuvo completo durante mi estancia, pero tuve la suerte de tener compañeros bastante tranquilos y no hubo grandes problemas con el ruido. Laura no vive en Barcelona actualmente, así que todos los trámites se hacen a través de otra persona que vive muy cerca. La habitación es preciosa, mucha luz y ubicación perfecta. El Born es una zona encantadora de Barcelona, y es todo un lujo vivir en su pleno corazón. La única desventaja es que la ventana/balcón no es de pvc, es muy antigua, y además de la vibración del cristal, el ruido de la calle puede ser muy muy molesto - sobretodo a las 3 de la mañana cuando aún hay gente de fiesta. La otra gran desventaja es que el sistema de electricidad es también muy antiguo, y los plomos se iban como 3 o 4 veces al día. No se podía cocinar con más de un fogón al tiempo, y por mucho que hubiera lavadora y secadora, era imposible utilizarlas a no ser que te levantaras a las 6 de la mañana cuando nadie más estaba cocinando ni con la estufa puesta. Y para aquellos no fumadores... hay gente que fuma en su habitación y a veces en el salón, y el olor a porro puede ser aplastante. Tan sólo estoy siendo sincera, ya que a mi me hubiera gustado saber esto antes de llegar. Pero también es cierto que mi estancia era larga - y estas cosas no serían gran molestia si sólo fueras a quedarte un par de días, o un fin de semana.
Great location. Livey, with both locals and groups of tourists with guides in the daytime. Nice architecture.The church Santa Maria del Mar. Atmosphere. Close to the sea. Neat little balcony. Good bed, nice smelling sheets .Good shower.
BUT : Very noisy at night; bars; screaming people, street being cleaned by cars deep in the night. Bring earplugs! Unpleasant smell in the room. No plant. A bit shabby. No reading light above the bed. No orange, but grey on the couch .I miss elegant details. Room deserves a better decoration. No LOCK on the room…PRIVACY!
Dead plant on the balcony. The one moment I sat on the balcony I received a shower from the neighbour above watering plants…. (?!)
I had to remove big dots of hair from the bathtub.
Serious problem : It was forbidden to put the rented bike in the hall at night; nasty because there is a serious risk of theft. So I could not stay out on bike later than 21.00 o' clock ; at that time I had to bring back the bike to the shop.
I had no face to face contact with Laura.
Great view of El born right out the window and on the balcony, the only thing is that there are a three other rooms with Air BnB travelers who share the 1.5 bathrooms and living space. Everyone traveller was respectful and did not make much if any noise which was great. Staying here really made me feel like I was living in the heart of Barcalona
Great location, great value if you are traveling on a budget. Thank you!
Sehr gute und sonnige Lage ohne Klimaanlage in der belebten Altstadt, ein Bahnhof + U-Bahn + Taxis + Hafen + Restaurants + Supermärkte zu Fuß erreichbar
The location was awesome, the room very spacious, and a lovely small balcony with a perfect street view. Communication with Laura and checking in/out was very easy. Great spot in Barcelona!
I went in Laura's appartment with 2 friends at the end of August. I never met Laura or Allen but over the phone or by email they were always very kind and available. There was a mistake so we had to stay 2 nights at the hotel and at first we didn't really appreciate that but Laura and Allen were soo helpful about that and they made everything fine and we didn't have to pay anything more at the hotel. Plus, they took care of everything and the hotel was literally 2 steps away from the appartment !
The place itself is convenient and it's huge ! We were 10 but we never had a problem sharing the bathroom or the kitchen !
Clean, with everything we need and very well located.
Thanks again Laura and Allen :)
This was a great building and very quiet, except for the people on the street partying until 4a. It didnt bother me but if your room is in front might be difficult to sleep. My room was excellent as it had a terrace and was very big. If you want to save money the rooms in the back are smaller I think. If you have alot of luggage ( as I did) please note there are lots of stairs and they are very narrow so tough to manage if you dont have help. Laura was very helpful by email and Sandra who greeted me was also very sweet and welcoming. Only problem I had was with the bathroom. The floor was always wet and think there should be a mop kept in there and a reminder for guests to clean up after themselves. The last night I was there, we ran out of toilet paper. I think thats inexcusable. Thankfully a neighbor gave us some since all the stores were closed. I would definitely recommend this place to travelers on a budget. The Born neighborhood is great, full of shopping, food, bars and close proximity to everything. The Park Ciutadella is beautiful and has yoga offered there sometimes.
Laura's apartment is wonderful!!!! It was very clean and the area is just great with all the nice restaurants, càfes and shopes. Also it is just a short walk away from the beach. My friend and I really loved it. I will definitely come here again!
Great location, nice and simple room and bathroom, also made use of the kitchen. Can be a bit noisy in the evenings if you go to bed at a pre-barcelona time. Great stay and would recommend the room!!
