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
This apartment/room was in a great location, very close to the Jaume metro and very close to all. It was clean and comfortable for the most part, just very small, but okay, and Ritchie and Ananda were very communicative and helpful.
I would not recommend this place for long stays, as it is very small and not totally equipped for anything more than two or three days. I would also not recommend this place if you need a quiet place to sleep, as the streets outside are somewhat noisy until 2 or 3 am. And I would also not recommend this place if you are very modest, it's really best for a single or a couple who are comfortable sharing small spaces.
But I would definitely recommend this place if you won't be spending much time at your lodgings or entertaining guests. I would also recommend this place because Ritchie and Ananda are very friendly and helpful and communicative. The location really can't be beat.
Before arriving, we had been in contact with Richie and Ananda quite a bit. They gave us very specific instructions on getting to the flat, as well as recommendations on places to eat and visit in the area. The flat was easy enough to find, as it's located above a small bar, where we picked up our key. The flat was clean and welcoming, and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The balcony was nice too, a great place to have breakfast before exploring. There was music and noise in the alley on the weekend, but during the weeknights it was quiet. The location of the flat is great, only a few minutes walk to the nearest metro, and within walking distance to the popular plazas and centre. We enjoyed our stay here
Richie was a great host! It was my first Airbnb experience and it was great. He was so helpful with directions and responded quickly when I had questions, even during my stay. The apartment is very cute and located in an ideal neighborhood. We had so much fun hanging in the Born neighborhood. The balcony was also a treat to enjoy my coffee and breakfast on in the morning. Would definitely recommend Richie's place for anyone traveling to Barcelona
My partner and I chose this as our base to explore Barcelona due to it's central location and price - it was perfect for our needs and we had a wonderful time.
The area was great for us as we could walk to nearly all the sights and only had to get the metro a couple of times. It also has excellent nightlife and some good places for food.
The flat is above a bar, so can sometimes be a bit noisy. But the people who run the bar are really friendly and they even helped us to find somewhere to store our luggage on the last day.
Overall the flat needs a bit of a refurb, the beds a bit uncomfortable and the balcony door can be tricky to lock - however for this price and location it's still excellent value. The basic kitchen facilities were a bonus for us as it meant we didn't need to spend money on eating out everyday and the balcony is a great place to sit, eat and watch the busy little street below.
Overall I'd really recommend this to anyone on a budget who wants more than a soulless hostel.
Thanks Richie and Ananda and to the helpful (email hidden) (below) for a great stay.
Situated in a nice neighborhood, and unconventional building, the apartment is a cosy place,
clean, and authentic.
