About this listing
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 hobs with butano, table with 2 chairs, there is also a heater for the winter months and a fan for the summer months :) the balcony is definitely a high point and really good to watch barcelona city pass you by :). 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!
enjoy yourselfs in sunny Barcelona

Horrible, asqueroso, immonde! WARNING TOURIST TRAP. Everything is a blatant lie from the photos to the description. Now before I start this dreadful review of this shit stinking crack den of an appartement, let me explain that I have never written a negative review for anything, be it through yelp, foursquare or even airbnb. I have never seen such a massive tourist ripoff. This place represents the very worst of what you can find on airbnb, a money grabbing shithole labelled as a "loft" where everything and I mean EVERYTHING is ugly, broken or missing. The shower floods the appartement, the bed is unusable because of the coils almost sticking out of the mattress, the sink is clogged, the balcony has no windows to prevent you from hearing the drunks from the dive bar on the floor below, which you have to go through to get to the appartment, there is a ceiling lamp as your only source of light, one rotting plant on the balcony and the list could go on and on. Honestly, if I was an ahole I would have thrashed this place when I left. You guys should be ashamed to even list this on airbnb and I would only recommend this place to someone trying to hide from the police or who wanted to overdose on crack or heroin. They even charge a 15€ cleaning fee for a 15m2 flat. I mean seriously how low can you sink you sleazy basterdz. Obviously no one lives here and we never met the "owners" who have arranged for the downstairs barman to handle the key transfer. This place is absolutely horrible. STAY AWAY from this obvious tourist trap.
We had great communication from our hosts from the very start. The apartment is in a great location within the quaint alley ways of the gothic quarter, with great little restaurants,shops, museums, churches etc. And also a short walk to the beaches and esplanades. A little noisy at night from the street and bar, but it wasn't a big issue for us. Very clean apartment and Great value for money.
This place is sick. The bar downstairs is nice and the people are really friendly. We got to take our food and drinks upstairs to eat on our balcony- pretty much like room service. Definitely recommend this place to people seeking to have a rad time in barcelona
The location on this apartment is just perfect ;o)))
The balcony is very nice, and you'll spend all your time there... however it´s a tiny place, no door to the toilet/bathroom, the kitchen section not fully equipped (the few things are in a really bad shape...)
The bed is horrible, it´s NOT OKAY renting out an apartment with a bed like that... I do hope that they´ll buy a new one, or else I do not recommend anybody to sleep there !!
The barman in Tower Bar was very nice and helpful ;o)))
We felt very welcome and since we arrived earlier than the original check-in time, Richie arranged with the cleaning lady to get the apartment ready for us on our arrival. Due to a precise description and address it was very easy to find, and the neighbourhood was awesome - right in the middle of the center and we loved to sit on the terrasse to drink a beer while watching people walking by on the street. Also, the hosts left us a list of bars, cafes and restaurants worth visiting - and they truly were :-)
The only thing negative we have to say is, that the bed was terrible; broken under the mattress so we had to squeeze together in one side and it was about to fall apart and creaked every time one was (hardly) moving.
Perfect location, but terrible appartment. The location was perfect, close to everything. However the appartment I would not recommend. The bed was absolutely terrible, the madras was totally broken and the bedframe creaked so much that you would wake up when turning in the night. The toiletseat could not hold it self up, so you would have it in the back when sitting there. Moreover there is no door to the toilet, so you have to be very familar if you are traveling with another person. Finally I was not able to come in contact with Richie before arrival, I wrote the morning before the arrival date, and not until 30 hours, several messages and a failed phonecall he wrote me back, 3 hours before my airplane took off. This led to an unnecessesary concern.
