Recommended - good location to all the sights - nice host - great apartment - would come back again
Very conveniently located with a great view from the communal terrace. Alexander is a very attentive host and we found his apartment in top condition when we arrived.
As others have mentioned before, if you are not prepared to climb stairs you should probably stay away. Also the bathroom was really small, however, we felt that the location & price outweighed this.
In una via silenziosa del Borne si trova questo studio molto carino.
L'arredamento originale rende lo spazio davvero piacevole. Preparatevi a salire come in una torre fino all'ultimo piano e se volete c'è anche una terrazza comune sovrastante.
Molto pratica la posizione, sia per turismo che per soggiorno.
Con Alex perfetta comunicazione.
My boyfriend and I rented the apartment for 5 days for a trip to Barcelona for his birthday. We had an excellent experience.
Alex is very prompt at communicating and very helpful. He provided us with all the information we needed to find the apartment easily and he met us there on time and showed us around and checked we were all ok with it.
The apartment itself is in a great location - 3 mins walk from the Picasso museum and lots of lovely tapas bars.
We had everything we needed. The apartment was clean and well cared for. The bed was comfy and very warm, even though the weather was quite cool when we were there. There was plenty of hot water and everything worked - cooker, kettle, hob, toaster, TV, stereo. We only cooked breakfast in the apartment, but we had everything we needed to do that with pots, pans, plates etc. There are even cocktail glasses if you need them!
There was some noise from the street, but it is in the middle of a city so you will always get noise! We didn't have a problem with it and generally found the apartment to be quiet and peaceful. The only interruption was the church bells, and we didn't mind that.
I would definitely rent another apartment from Alex. He was well prepared and there is a helpful manual in the apartment that answers most questions you may have. We didn't need to contact Alex during our stay as there were no problems, but I am sure that he would have responded straight away if we had any queries. He was also very flexible about checking in and leaving times which really helped us out.
If I had to make any suggestions to improve the apartment, I would say it would be handy to have a microwave, but I really am being picky to say that!
I would thoroughly recommend the apartment and Alex as a host. If I ever decide to go back to Barcelona, I will check his apartments first.
Studio bien situé et agréable, il ne faut pas avoir peur de grimper quelques étages, mais c'est aussi le prix à payer pour avoir un peu de quiétude à un coût très compétitif.
Nous remercions Alexander pour son professionnalisme et sa cordialité !
The apartment was ideal for the weekend we spent in Barcelona, has everything you need and is just like the pictures that Alex has provided. It was very easy to get to from the airport, just a 30 minute train ride to Estacio de Franca then a 5 minute walk from the station to the apartment. There was no street noise at all at night, and the bed is very comfortable! There is a beautiful church, Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar about 100 m from the front door and several small convenience stores very nearby as well. We weren't sure if the the main water in Barcelona was okay to drink but it we drank it the whole time during our stay and it tasted fine! We usually had showers and did some washing up everyday and there was always hot water. There is no mains heating but Alex has a small electric heater that we used in the evenings which kept the apartment at a good temperature, and once you are in bed the duvet is very good so it doesn't matter anyway! There is also a radio which is nice to have and the kitchen is well equipped with most things you might need. Alex met us at the flat to give us keys even though we arrived at around 23.00 which was really helpful as well.
Very nice and cosy place .
