Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Viva Catalonia! We loved our Barcelona experience and much of that was due to our superb lil' apartment in the hippest area of the city, El Born. The Market, local shops and galleries and restaurants are at your fingertips. A few restaurants that are a must in terms of service, food and experience: Milk for brunch (if you want a more English style breakfast), Arcano (exceptional service), Obe (italian...literally around the corner from the apartment)...and there's another restaurant attached to the market Santa Catarina something or other...GO! Also...there are a few little convenience stores around the apartment. Opt for Maxi's...across from Obe. Max is always there and super friendly.
    The only thing that might bother some, is that the street noise can be a wee bit if you are a light sleeper, you may want to be tucked away more. We were so tired from walking the city, we had no problems with sleep.
    I would also recommend a trip down to Sitges! Lovely beaches and shopping!

  • Thank you so much for your kindness. You have a lovely appartement, very clean, well located, and with a nice view on a typical street of the Old Town of Barcelona. We will definately think of you for our next strip!

  • Marino's apartment was perfect for our trip to Barcelona! It was exactly as the photos show: clean, equipped with everything you might need, cozy (due to it's low ceiling and big bed) and also very central when it comes to exploring the city. Almost everything turned out to be 5 to 15 mins away from El Born. Marino was also very friendly when it came to checking out of the apartment and leaving our bags with him to enjoy our last day in the city before heading to the airport. We found the apartment ideal and absolutely recommend it.

  • Very good location and great apartment. We stayed during the Primavera Sound festival and found this very convenient and friendly. They were able to accommodate for our late arrival and departure, thanks again!

  • Marino was very friendly and welcoming with our checking and even before. The appartment was easy to find - and 5 minutes after arrival Marino`s friend passed by giving us the keys - even speakting some German. The organisation was therefore perfect! The studio was clean and exactly as the photos show. Due to the building and the first level location natural light is limited and the ceilings are rather low. The location "el Born" was perfect for exploring the city. Thanks again!

  • Very clean, centrally located studio excellent for exploring the city. Met the lovely Marcella when we arrived who let us into the flat and showed us where to find everything and ran us though where we were/what to see/ how to get around etx. Thank you for a lovely stay!

  • Fantastic apartment! Santa Catarina is in a charming area of El Born which was bustling by day but quiet at night. It was a very quick walk to the Metro, local bars, and the Picasso Museum. People in the neighborhood were friendly and we always felt safe when walking around. It's a very comfortable apartment with everything you could need for your trip - air conditioner, great wifi, hair dryer, and a very comfortable bed and sofa.
    Marino and Marcella were very welcoming and were quick to respond to messages and help with suggestions with transport and sightseeing. There was even a bottle of wine waiting when we got there!
    Will definitely be staying here again on future trips to Barcelona!

  • Superbe séjour à Barcelone ! Le soleil étant de la partie cela fut parfait !
    L'appartement était très bien situé, très proche de la cathédrale et de tous les quartiers dynamiques de Barcelone. Il était très propre et correspond bien à la description, Marcella nous a très gentiment accueilli et nous a donné de bons conseils de visites. Nous espérons pouvoir revenir bientôt.

Hola, nací en León y a los 20 años vine a estudiar artes plásticas y fotografía a Barcelona, hace unos años, empecé a alquilar mi apartamento de la Sagrada Familia cuando me trasladé al borne en el casco antiguo, donde tengo una pastelería en la que ofrecemos desayunos que están incluidos en el precio del alojamiento de los apartamentos, gestionamos junto con mi novia nuestros apartamentos y los de otros propietarios en la zona, tenemos un nuevo loft a nivel de la calle, decorado con un estilo bastante original, con espacios abiertos, muy bien equipado con la oportunidad de ver la gente si lo deseas. Me gusta mucho la experiencia de conocer gente de otros países y siempre intentamos que los huéspedes tengan una estancia lo mas agradable posible.
