Mariona gives you a warm welcome. Her apartment is located in the centre of Born. Keep in mind the sleeping room is quite small and that you share the bathroom, kitchen and living room with Mariona, her son and a friend. So if you are quite keen on your privacy, this place might not be ideal for you. If you are willing to meet nice people, this place is perfect.
Amable y atenta recepción por parte de Mariona y su familia. El poco tiempo que pude compartir con ellos, me trataron de maravilla y me hicieron sentir como en mi propia casa. Apartamento en un edificio, que aun sin estar en buen estado tiene un encanto increíble. Ubicación privilegiada. Habitación tranquila, limpia y correcta.
My host Mariona Jimenez was super nice. She welcomed me at the door and helped me bring my luggage to her apartment. showed me to a very spacious room (Barcelona standards) plenty of light, table to put my electronics on in the room with wardrobe and shelves. I had access to internet. Wonderful place, next to the Picasso museum. Ancient building with character on outside beautifully refurnished inside. I had access to everything and did not feel like I was in the way. It is located In the area of El Born where you have access to everything, Walk out of the street and 7 minutes later you are at the famous Catalunya Square. Or walk in the opposite direction you are the water front or the old fishing village area. Restaurants, shopping, everything is at your finger tips. So lucky I found this listing. One caveat, she has cats so if you don't like animals might be a sticking point. They never bothered me and she made sure they did not bother me. She is a knowledgeable and caring host for anyone who is new to Barcelona and needs guidance.
The location of Mariona's apartment is fantastic. It is right in the middle of the gothic area of barcelona and there are many interesting shops and restaurants close by. Mariona was polite and helpful and I felt comfortable in her home. The room is quiet to sleep in and very clean. However, it is quite dark as there is only a small window which faces a courtyard. The apartment is in a very interesting 17th century building and it is on the 4th floor so there are lots of stairs to climb. This may be a problem if you have limited mobility.
I and my sister we stayed in Mariona's apartment for three night and we had a lovely time. Great location, very central. Room is located off the central large courtyard so it's quiet and the house is comfy. Mariona is a quite and kind person and her son Bruno is such a polite little guy. I recommend a stay here.
l'appartement est à l'identique des photos, le quartier est vivant mais sans être bruyant la nuit; la porte est à côté du musée Piicasso!!
Mariona est agréable, et d'une aide certaine pour s'orienter dans Barcelone! (le matin selon les endroits à visiter, elle me guidait grâce au plan et m'indiquait les bus ou metro à prendre...) bref de bons conseils! et toujours avec bienveillance, et le sourire.
j'ai passé 3 jours excellents dans cette ville époustouflante de beautés artistiques! la majorité de mes découvertes à pieds car l 'appart est parfaitement situé! par contre, 3 étages à 25 marches chacun!! faut avoir de bons mollets!!
