Excellent part of Barcelona with everything nearby, Picasso Museum literally around the corner and almost no street noise as this is a back road (except for a few party people walking by occasionally). Wifi. Flexible Check in. We are happy to host u.
We offer a clean & chic studio to enjoy a comfortable stay right at the heart of Born area.
A few blocks away from the Picasso Museum, Santa María del Mar, Barcelona Disseny Hub, Mammoth Museum, Santa Caterina Market, The Cathedral, El Palau de la Música Catalana, and many more interesting sites.
It is at a walking distance from Ciutadella Park and the beach.
This area is crowded with options for eating out, shopping, or just wandering and enjoying the beauty of medieval streets & sites.
Well connected to metro and buses. But really, who wants them? Staying here you can walk everywhere, or rent a bike and go around the city in a heartbeat!
Nearest metro station is Jaume I (yellow line) two minutes away, then Urquinaona (red/yellow lines) is also close about eight minutes away, and Liceu (green line) is about ten minutes walking through beautiful Ferran street.
The apartment consists in a large space, where living room and kitchen share the same surface, as well as the bedroom that is separated by a sliding door. It can be divided to host up to three guests: two in the main bedroom and the third guest in the expandable white couch you can see in the pictures.
The kitchen is equipped with:
-coffe maker (american style)
-washing machine (no dryer, you can air-dry your clothes outside)
-pans, pots, dishes
And, there is Santa Caterina market just two blocks away, there you will be able to find a variety of products to cook at home if you enjoy doing so.
We don't allow to smoke inside, there is a balcony where you can smoke in case you really want to. The space is smoke free.
Dog and family friendly.
Kitchen. Wifi. Entire apartment, not shared with anyone. Assistance.
Interaction with Guests
I meet every guest myself, except when I'm on holidays. We meet for key exchange, and they can pose any special requirements or questions they could have.
One of the best neighborhoods in Barcelona when you come to visit, for it's proximity with many spots of interest and for being a live museum of medieval architecture. Bars, restaurants and shops all around to not have the need to move elsewhere and walking distance to other interesting neighborhoods.
We have Jaume I 5' away from home. Arc de Triomf and Urquinaona metro stations also close by.
Not ideal for parking as the whole city centre is a bit difficult, we recommend you park elsewhere in the city (if you need to park for free) or ideally not bring a car at all. There's really no need for one, and you can always rent a scooter.
Try to avoid partying at home, the neighbors don't appreciate it and they can be trouble or even call the police. With so many nice places to go to, why stay at home?
We allow smoking in the balcony, but prefer if you don't smoke at all for respect for upcoming guests who don't.
This apartment was even better than the pictures. It was very Bright and clean.
Maria Was Very helpfull and Met us at the apartment in the middel of the nigt.

L'appartamento corrisponde esattamente alla descrizione: pulito arredato con gusto e veramente confortevole !!!
A due passi dalla fermata della metropolitana si trova in una zona centrale in una posizione comoda per raggiungere, anche a piedi, alcune dei principali luoghi di interesse della città.
L'ospitalità di Maria è stata al di sopra delle aspettative: puntuale all'accoglienza si è dimostrata cordiale, sinceramente cortese e disponibile a fornire informazioni, consigli e suggerimenti.
The flat was exactly as it's pictured here -- very clean, sunny, well decorated, spacious, and comfortable. I don't have a single complaint! The location was perfect and we could walk to just about everything we wanted to see in the downtown area. The metro is less than 5 minutes away for anything that wasn't walkable. The best part for us was the well equipped kitchen. My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful afternoon walking around La Boqueria and buying ingredients to make dinner which was so fun and easy given that Maria had pots, pans, spoons, and basic spices already stocked. It felt more like living in Barcelona for a few days, rather than just being a tourist there.
Maria herself was an excellent hostess and quickly responded to any questions that came up over the week. I would rent her flat again in a heartbeat :) Thanks for helping make our vacation so memorable!
Great location. Easy communication. Lovely apartment, modern and clean. Less than 2 min from Picasso museum.

Our stay in Barcelona was excellent due in part to where we chose to stay. This apartment is perfectly situated for seeing many of the 'old city' sights, such as the Bascillica de Santa Maria del Mar (Amazing!), the Picasso Museum, the Arc de Triomf, Roman ruins, and so many others.
If you want to grocery shop, the Mercat de Santa Caterina is just down the street. There are plenty of corner shops, too.
Maria Candela made everything very easy - she met us to give us the keys, then was available during our stay via AirBnB. She gave us a list of suggestions for our favorite things to do: eat and drink. We couldn't do everything on her list, so we're saving it for next time!
The apartment itself is well equipped for cooks. We hosted a small dinner party and were able to make a complete meal with the kitchen appliances, dish ware, etc. It made us feel right at home.
Next time we're in Barcelona, we will definitely consider staying in this apartment again. The proximity to so many sights and restaurants is something that's hard to pass up!
Lovely apartment in a very fun location next to many fabulous shops and restaurants. The flat was clean and beautiful, I highly recommend!
