Beautiful loft situated in the historical and cosmopolitan area of Born. This petit apartment of 30 m2 is on the second floor and a lovely balcony very spacious with table and chairs for morning breakfast. It is ideal for 2 . There is a double bed a kitchen with mini fridge, gas oven with butano, table with 2 chairs. The bathroom is equipped with shower, and toilet. Apartment situated in the Born area of Barcelona old town, where you will find pedestrian streets with art galleries, fashion stores, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. The street can be quite noisy as its very central and right in the middle of el born. The loft is located on one of barcelonas bohemian restaurant streets, like many entrances in this area you have to go through the commercial property to enter during their opening hours, when the bar is closed the door becomes like any entrance. In other words before 1am YOU HAVE TO ENTER THROUGH A SMALL BAR.
There are many famous touristic attractions are very near as Palau de La Music, St. Catherina Mercat, Sta. Maria del Mar Cathedral, Picasso Museum, the amazing Cathedral of Barcelona, the popular Ramblas and the beach. The nearest metro station is Jaume I one which is one block from the flat. This place is definitely the real place feel the Barcelonian urban life and enjoy your stay at a good price!
The flat itself is simple, but it's location within the city is perfect. My only issue with the flat is that it's directly above a dingy bar, and as I'm one lonely girl, I didn't exactly feel wonderfully safe and without ease. But perhaps I need to toughen up a bit! Again, its quaint and its location is desirable, but I would consider the bar and the ever-so-slightly questionable people hanging around before booking.
Hey Alessandra :) the flat is as shown in the pictures,we're slightly confused about your comment (questionable people) since below the flat there is friendly indian people who own the bar, previous customers commented positively about them, we are in the middle of the center in Barcelona the lovely Borne and in our experience its very safe. Thanks for booking and we glad you enjoyed the flat and its great location.
Loved this place, easy to find, really close to the metro and the location is perfect especially for accessing the old town. We ate our breakfast on the balcony with the sun shining. Very cute and very quirky! Will stay there again for sure!
Perfect place for a couple ! Nice host, very accommodating...
I stayed in the studio apartment for one night, arrived late and left early. The previous reviews written highlight the quirky problems of this little place already, which are true and luckily I didn't stay there for long and was alone, so the open plan toilet wasn't a problem. I had ear plugs and managed to get some sleep. Leaving at 9am and walking off to enjoy breakfast at the nearby lovely Caterina market I was glad to be on the road again
The apartment was lovely! IIt was organized and cleaned before our arrival. The location is really good, central enough to move around old Barcelona, and still located in an area away from the touristy buzz. I really liked it!
Nice flat, well located, perfect for a week-end! The staff of the "Tower Bar" where we got the keys is very friendly and helpful. Note that the bathroom has blinds instead of a door (what's not a problem if you use the toilets in the bar). I recommend this place!
Not hard to find, I arrived to the bar and the barman immediately recognised what I was there for and gave me the keys. Walked upstairs and into the room. A simple place with everything you will probably need in Barcelona - a bed, a table, a shower, a small kitchenette. Wifi sometimes goes down but not for long. Great location, you can literally walk left or right from the front door and go on an adventure.
Nice small apartment in the center, near everything.
Subway, bars, restaurants etc.
You enter through a bar which is convenient for getting the keys.
There is no real door to the toilet, but it's possible to use the WC in the bar if your not ready to share every experience with your roommate.
Cozy little apartment in the Old City. Great location to a lot of the "touristy" spots. The room was pretty basic, and fine if you're just looking for a place to sleep. Make sure you're close with whomever you're traveling with, as the bathroom doesn't have a door, just blinds. Bar staff below were friendly and even helped carry our luggage up the stairs. Handing off the key was also easily coordinated. Plus, you can't beat the price of this place!
The location of the apartment was perfect. Close to the metro stop, a good place in El Born and therefore close to all the nice bars! The bar below the apartment is a bit lugubrious. The bartender was nice, but there's a quite a strange atmosphere... The noise didn't bother us, but we came home late every night.
The apartment was small, but that's okay if you'll be there for a few days and we were actually outdoors all the time. The lovely balcony is an absolute plus! Allthough it was cold in the time we were there, it's just nice if you can sit outside!
The bathroom, however, is terrible. There is no door, only a luxaflex-thingy which is quite a struggle to put down, so we had a staring contest if one of us was at the toilet. The shower has a bad leak. The first day there was even water in the 'living' AND the second person that needs a shower must take a cold shower into account. Oh, and the shower head fell of. Awesome.
Philip was very nice though and was disappointed when we told about the shower. He said that we should have contact him. But it was fine, it was just three days.
We had a great time, enjoyed our 'own' space in El born, but next time we will probably look out for something else.
hey thanks for booking, sorry we have never heard any thing about a cold shower for the second person before or after this trip, and unfortunate you couldnt work the blind must have been a one off :) its a shame we didnt know about the shower head we could have changed it and water wouldnt have been spilt,any how change now!!! thanks for booking and if using airbnb if something were to break tell the owner and we fix it thats our jobs :)
