  • We spent a truly memorable week in Barcelona and we'd like to thank our nice hosts Marcella and Marino for their warm welcome, useful tips and being very responsive to our needs.
    The apartment has everything we were looking for - and more! The place is easy to find, quiet, safe, within walking distance from many of Barcelona's famous sights. And having Santa Caterina market nearby was certainly a plus!
    We were out and about most of the time but it was really nice to come back to a place that felt like home.
    Hope to come again.

  • Marino has a been a perfect host- even an early check-in and late check-out were no problem. The apartment is perfectly located and has everything you might need during your stay.
    We had a great time and can highly recommend Marino's place!

  • lo hemos pasado muy bien en la casa de Marino, ubicación perfecta: muy centrico, en el casco antiguo, estación de tren/autobus cercana (muy cómodo para el traslado desde los aereopuertos) y también del metro, muchos bares/cafes/tiendas alrededor, con muy poco ruido en la calle. El piso es muy luminoso, cómodo y limpio, muy bonitas las vigas de madera.. y bien equipado! Check-in y check-out muy rápido y simple. Marino es supersimpatico y disponible y nos dio la bienvenida con dos Brownies buénisimas que nos hos hemos olvidado decirle cuanto nos gustaban!! Grazie Marino, buonissimi!!!

  • Marino and Marcella were the perfect hosts. The apartment is exactly as photographed on the profile, and very clean and comfortable. They even provided shampoo/towels/extra blankets which I thought was a really nice touch! It is located above their lovely bakery. Marcella gave us a fantastically detailed guide to the city when we arrived, drawing in useful routes to take and things to see on a map. And Marino/Marcella were easily accessible if we had any queries. The WiFi was really high speed and very reliable.

    The apartment is located in the El Born area which is a perfect base for a stay in Barcelona, in our opinion. It is an old old part of town, with meandering streets that the taxi found hard to find from the airport. We soon learned that telling taxi drivers to drop us at the Arc de Triomphe was the easiest option, with the apartment a two minute walk from there. The old town is within walking distance, with it taking ten minutes to reach La Rambla. I note previous guests found the area a little scary at night, but we never encountered anything concerning in the slightest.

    All in all, we would stay here again if in Barcelona and would be very happy to recommend to friends.

    Clean, excellent wifi, a/c and great security, we could not fault the apartment.
    Thanks Marcella and Marino for a great weekend.
    5 stars!

  • The hosts are excellent. VERY responsive (they live just down the street and operate a high-end bakery beside the apartment), and very pleasant people who work hard to be accommodating. The apartment is very centrally located, but in a bit of a rough neighborhood. I didn't find it dangerous at all, but there are warnings about pick pockets. The apartment is cute, functional, complete and easy to find. Lots of amenities nearby.

    I LOVED the chocolate cake but didn't have time to eat it all (I can't eat chocolate at night), and felt badly leaving it behind and not acknowledging how great it was.

    Highly recommend this apartment. I would definitely return.

  • Wonderful stay at Marino's place. Quick communication and very accommodating.
    On arrival we were treated to one of Marino's delicious chocolate cakes while we waited on the keys to the flat.

    The flat was very clean, comfortable and had everything we required. Including fast and reliable WIFI

    Guidance offered by Marcella about Barcelona was great with lots of advice and some non touristy spots to visit.
    The place is very close to El Borne, which in my opinion is one of my favorite parts of Barcelona. Transport links to the metro are a short walk and lots of supermarkets, bars and restaurants close by.

    In comparison to most Barcelona streets the street is quiet but still has the occasion noise outside from passing groups or cars, especially at the weekend. But for me this just added to the authenticity of this El Borne flat.

  • Excellent location in the old town area of Barcelona.
    20-30min walk to the beach, and very close to the metro stops.

    Charming neighborhood to stay in. Marino and his wife were extremely welcoming and helpful during my stay. You will not be disappointed.

    September 2013
  • Ideal studio on a great location. Everything is nearby, metro, minimarket, tapasbars, Parc de la Ciutadella.. And Marcella also gave me some handy information and tips to go to in Barcelona!
    The studio has a very nice, clean and fresh interior and is just like described, good bed to sleep on, a full equipped kitchen, well working aircondition, fast wifi, clean bathroom.
    Simply said, highly recommended!

About
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.
