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.
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!
Helena, thanks a lot for the awesome stay in your apartment! I can't imagine better place to live in BCN. Santa Maria del Mar is just few steps away, the whole old city too. absolutely fantastic restaurants just a minute walk from home. The apartment itself is clean and big. next time in BCN - in Helena's place for sure!
Great apartment, spacious, bright, well-equipped and perfectly located!
During my stay in Barcelona, I was in 3 different apartments and this option was definitely the best. I stayed there almost for 10 days, and from the beginning felt like home. The apartment gives on a quiet place, just a 2 minutes walk from "Santa María del Mar" church and Argenteria street with a lot of Tapas bar/restaurants.
Last thing as I was there mainly for work => the wifi internet works great and is really fast!
Although I sent the booking inquiry just the day before my arrival, everything was perfectly organized by Helena and her brother Antonio. Communication was always easy and Helena's advices on local places was really helpful. Highly recommended!
El piso de Helena es muy recomendable: por ubicación, comodidad y espacio. El barrio es estupendo (aunque demasiado turístico), con todo a mano; el edificio es nuevo (instalaciones, ascensor, etc.). Teníamos un poco de miedo por el ruido, pero es verdad que el piso es bastante tranquilo. Helena es muy agradable y excelente anfitriona. En todo momento estuvo disponible, a pesar de no encontrarse en Barcelona cuando fuimos, y preocupándose por nuestra estancia. Gracias por todo.
We have stayed at Helena's apartment in Barcelona for two weeks, and that was a wonderful time! We liked the apartment itself, the building and the neighbourhood. But the most of all we liked the attitude of Helena - she was a well-wishing, polite, positive and responsible person. Helena was answering my e-mails immediately and her advices were just-to-the-point.
That was my third time in Barcelona, which is one of the cities I'd like to come back again and again. And Helena also made a significant contribution to that wish.
Thanks for everything!:)
