Our family of five celebrated a wonderful and memorable Christmas 2013 in this apartment! For families on a budget willing to sacrifice luxury for location, this apartment hits the target. The location is absolutely magical. The Santa Maria del Mar church is really as close as it looks it the picture. The church is a historical gem and acoustically dynamic. We took in Handels Messiah, as well as the Cante de Cibel and Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. If you are staying here, look up the concert schedule to experience a real treat. Anyone loving music and history will find both of these in spades! The location couldnt be improved upon. It is a ten minute walk to the entire Barri-Gotic area, including the Rambla, and Port Vell. Picasso Museum is 2 minute walk. Barcenoleta Beach - 15 minute walk. For a family of five on a budget, this saved a ton of money as we hardly needed to buy metro tickets.
Upon checking in, Marcel gave us advice on where to eat good tapas for a reasonable rate, gave suggestions on what to see and do in Barcelona. Marcel also hooked us up with a great tour guide for the Sagrada Familia - Antonio. Through this connection, we were able to skip the enormous line-up and gain special entrance to the Crypt. The hosts were also quick to respond to any of our concerns during our stay.
Future renters should be aware that the apartment is small. Our family of five maxed out the space. While the pictures are accurate, some furniture is in need of repair and the shower presented some issues due to small size and smell. We also did some clean up ourselves in the kitchen when we arrived. Although it does not have WiFi, we did find a cafè with free WiFi a block away.
Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment to families on a budget looking for an affordable, memorable, musically and historically rich vacation.
I really enjoyed Alvaro's apartment in Barcelona and as an AirBnB host myself, I would certainly recommend it. The apartment is in an old building right across from the historic Santa Maria del Mar church and it has a lot of charm and character. Alvaro seems to be taking good care of it and the place is clean and comfortable. It's located in the El Born neighborhood of Barca, which is a very bohemian and artistic area with excellent food,and a good homebase for exploring the old part of the city. It's also a close walk from Barceloneta and the beach. I didn't get a chance to meet Alvaro and was checked in by is friend Marcel instead, but Alvaro was very good in communicating everything before my arrival, and Marcel was just as helpful with showing my around the apartment and giving me tips on the area and the city. Thanks you guys for the great stay!
Appartement avec un excellent rapport qualité/prix. Confort basique mais appartement très propre et ultra bien situé.
Alvaro nous a donné plein d'informations touristiques utiles, n'hésitez pas à faire appel à lui pour des restaurants ou monuments, il est très disponible. Si on revient à Barcelone aucun souci pour reprendre cet appartement. Juste un point = prévoir un torchon pour la vaisselle.
Apartment thumbs up:
-Location, location, location!
Apartment thumbs down:
-Difficult narrow stairway up with no elevator
-Very small bathroom and kitchen
-Sewer gas odour
-Shortage of coffee cups
Alvaro was a great host. He arranged a ride to the apartment from the airport with Jose, had Marcelo meet us to give us information about the apartment, neighbourhood and city, and he arranged a taxi for us when we left. He always responded quickly when we needed advice or help. So, a big thumbs up for Alvaro!
Alvaro was helpful and friendly and although we had no problems I am sure he would have helped if we had. I chose the Born area as I have been before and in my view is the most central and best. I found everything to my satisfaction and we had a good time
Alvaro was a fantastic host who provided us with lots of nice towels and perfect white sheets. The apartment is very basic but on the whole we had a really great stay!
The apartment was in a fantastic location, right in the middle if the action but not too noisy at night. It's an older style building which added charm and character. The bathroom and kitchen are small but the rest of the rooms are spacious. We loved the living room overlooking the plaza and church. Alvaro was a very professional and friendly host who gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and the area, including great tips on what to see and where to eat. He also kept in touch and made sure we had everything we needed. We would stay there again and recommend it to others.
Our stay was perfect, the flat was very clean, spacious, at one of the best charming place of Barcelona, and mostly with a perfect location.
Alvaro is a wonderful host, really helpful.
Thanks a lot
The flat is really nice and perfectly situated, right in the center of everything! It has everything one could need during a stay, clean and comfortable. Alvaro is very attentive and nice host, we were really impressed by his perfect english and knowledge of Barcelona's most interesting places and events. Thank you once again!!
The apartment is nice but very small. The living room and the bedrooms are comfortable. In the living room there is a sleeping sofa for two people and a second sofa. The corridor is tiny and the kitchen and the bathroom are very small. The stairs of the building are dirty. The balcony is small, too but it's on the main street so the view and the atmosphere are beautiful. The place "Church Santa Maria del Mar", where the apartment is situated, is fantastic. It's a very characteristic part of the city, full of very interesting bars, restaurants and street artists. Moreover, the zone is very comfortable to see the city. Infact, it's close to the Rambla, Picasso Museum, MACBA and the metro station of Jaume I. Suitable apartment for 5 guys and a family but for only 3 persons. The hosts are very kind and helpful. An amazing holiday.
