My girlfriend and I stayed in Helena's apartment in Borne for about a month and had a terrific time. The apartment details and photos are accurate, and has all the amenities you would need while traveling. The kitchen was a decent size and had all basic appliances, as well as a coffee maker and an orange juice press. The living room had a couch, a small dining table and a window that overlooks a square. I was working for part of the time in Barcelona, and the WIFI signal was strong and quick. The bathroom included a hair dryer and the shower pressure was excellent.
Most of all, what we really enjoyed was the location. There is a nearby market that we frequented that had plenty of fresh produce. You're right around the corner from plenty of tapas & pinxtos places, as well as the beautiful Church of Santa Maria del Mar. Moreover, you're close to public transportation (Juame I station), and a pleasant walk away from Plaça Sant Jaume.
Overall we had a fantastic time in Barcelona. We were sad to leave and will hopefully be back soon! We would definitely stay here again.
Great flat, great location and excellent information both before we arrived and when we got there. Helena’s brother was really helpful too and I would definitely recommend this apartment to others and stay here again next time!
The flat was true to the colorful images that represent it. Upon walking in, you are immediately welcomed by a sense of "I can live here".
The more-than-adequately equipped kitchen is just what one needs to prepare a nice meal at home after touring the city and being too exhausted to go out to any of the myriad of restaurant choices in El Born & Barri Gòtic.
The beds are comfortable and the windows shutters and glass swinging windows do a nice job of keeping the lively sounds of the neighborhood very low.
There's plenty of closet spaces in both bedrooms and plenty of room to iron your clothes with the provided iron.
The bathroom is new and clean and the water pressure is nice and strong! You'll enjoy your showers. There's a tub, so if you want to soak in a tub full water, you can do it.
The washer/dryer was a big PLUS!
The WiFi was up and running at all times and the signal is good and strong. I was even able to connect while having breakfast downstairs.
There is a bike rental store around the corner on Carrer de l'Argenteria where you can rent for a couple of hours for just 6 euros and do a nice ride around town or on the boardwalk on the nearby beaches.
Helena and her brother Antonio were very helpful the whole way. Antonio was there to greet me when I arrived from the airport. And when I thought I would need the flat for an additional night, they were willing to accommodate me at last minutes notice.
On my next visit to Barcelona I hope the flat will be available, as I would definitely stay there again. So please, be a kind guest and give this unit the TLC it deserves so that I can enjoy it again! :-)
We had an excellent experience at Helena's apartment. Her and her brother where prompt in answering our questions and were available to us at anytime. The apartment is in a really good location and everything in the apartment was well maintained. I would only request for an air conditioner for a 5 star experience.
Helena's flat is perfectly located. We had a great time in the Born neighbourhood. Plenty of shops, cafe's and bars located seconds away.
An amazing park and transit super close as well.
The flat itself was clean and cool, with 2 giant bay windows in the living room keeping the air circulating throughout the day which was important for us north americans that rely too much on air conditioning.
I would recommend this place for a group of 2-3 travellers.
Lovely location, great hosts. Helena and Antonio are gracious and always ready to assist. Some sleep disturbance due to motorbikes and animated discussions in square below. Would still gladly go back.
We had a very pleasant stay in Helenas apartment. First of all is the neighbourhood with the Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral charming and we spent a lot of time walking around in the narrow streets. The appartment couldn't be more central and the location close to sea is a great benefit.
The apartment has a simple and modern decor, but has everything you need, nice bathroom and good beds. We were welcomed by Antonio who kindly gave us information.

As the other guests already told, the place is - for sure - one of the best you can have in Barcelona: very close to many highlights like the Picasso Museum, the cathedral, bati gotic and so on. And only a few steps away from the seaside and the beautiful beaches! The flat is located at a quite place without traffic. The apartment is not luxury, but functional and all in all a nice place to be. Everything was well organized. We had a wonderful time there!
