  • Para una pareja con un niño de 2 años como nosotros el piso era perfecto! Lo tiene todo, esta muy bien equipado, en el mejor barrio de Barcelona! Hay muchos restaurantes al lado, pero no hay ruido en el piso y eso se valora mucho en una ciudad como Barcelona. Se puede disfrutar del Parque de la Ciutadella con los niños! Lorena es muy flexible y contesta rápidamente. Lo recomiendo a todos los que quieren disfrutar de lo mejor de Barcelona!

  • This apartment was convenient to all of the Borne district. We walked everywhere and found many grocery stores and restaurants nearby as well as the Picasso Museum. The kitchen was well appointed, and we cooked delicious black eyed peas for New Years Day using a few of the spices there. We did find the beds to be hard and the bathroom (and especially the bathroom sink) to be small.

  • We stayed 4 nights at Lorena's apartment, and it was great. The location is perfect, and we had no problem at all. Lorena is a very nice host and I can definitely recommend her apartment to everyone.

  • Not a true one bedroom. A studio converted with a very thin wall. The bedroom only has space for a bed. It is not any where near bright as it does in pictures. There were a lot of noise. You can hear the footsteps upstairs and even when people talk. Not good if you are a light sleeper.

    Location is good. The window directly looks on to another window in the back of the streets so no street view and no light. The bed is really old and uncomfortable. When we first arrived we couldn't tell whether the sheets were just really old or dirty. We wanted to wash it first as their is a washer but there was no detergent. We decided not to since there was no dryer so we just used some blankets.

    Biggest disappointments were in the details. There was only two tiny towels. We are from USA and used to multiple towels and big ones. Maybe our expectations were too high. But the towels were so old that it actually hurt when used to wipe. There was no toothpaste, no shampoo and half roll of toilet paper. We had to go buy some which was rather annoying since we were only there for a couple of days.

    The bathroom is tiny. I mean really really small like the ones you may (email hidden). It has a sink that is probably a quarter of the size of regular one and there is a glass piece sticking out on top. So it's impossible to wash your face of brush your teeth without getting the floor completely wet. Same for the shower which doesn't have a separation from floor to the shower. We would have love to have some extra towels.

    Also be careful walking from the bedroom to the bathroom which is at opposite ends. At night I didn't want to turn on the light since the bedroom has the top part open since it is not fully enclosed and I paid the price bumping in to drawers.

    It was very clear that nobody actually lives in this apartment and it was only used to rent out. For that we could have just got a cheap hotel.

    Pros - good location. Free wifi that works pretty good. Good real kitchen.

    Cons - old furniture. Tiny tiny bathroom. Loud. No view. No amenities what so ever.

  • Lorena was an excellent host - stepping in at the last minute when our other accommodation fell through. She was really communicative and flexible re check-in and out. The flat was lovely, quiet and in a nice neighbourhood. Very convenient for all the major attractions.

  • We had an excellent stay at Lorena's apartment. The apartment is perfect placed in El Borno near the center of Barcelona. My husbond, to years-old daughter and myself found the apartment perfect for a small family like us; especially the park, the zoo and all the playgrounds nearby were nice time outs for our five action packed days of sightseeing in Barcelona. And Lorena was very helpfull, hospitable and kind. She really made us feel welcome in her apartment. I can definitely give the apartment my warmest recommendations, and we hope to come back soon :-)

  • The apartment was so nice.I live here in Barcelona and my family visited me.I've reserved for 2 persons(my family),but Lorena prepared the bed for me also in case of I stayed!She was so kind.
    Unfortunately,during our stay something bad happened in front of the apartment so we were afraid.But it should happen anywhere so we don't mind.
    The location was good because from the nearest station,Arc de Triomf,we can take not only metro but also tren.Also,there are many restaurantes and shops near the apartment.We really liked this district.The apartment was big enough to stay and really comfortable.The first day,we arrived late but her mother waited us at the apartment.Check out time was also flexible.
    Thank you so much,we really enjoyed our stay!

Me considero una persona honesta y fiel a mi (website hidden) sociable y muy perseverante en lo que deseo. Me gusta salir con amigos y disfrutar de mi familia asi como leer en una linda playa o caminar junto a una buena compañia por alguna sendero de montaña. Cada dia que pasa, valoro mas, algo tan sencillo como un buen atardecer, una copa de vino con una charla interesante Me encanta viajar, y como alla donde voy, encuentro personas que me abren su corazon, tambien yo intento hacer lo mismo y hacer que quien venga disfrute y cuente conmigo para hacer de su viaje una estadia feliz :).
