A few positives and negatives about this apartment. I stayed for a month in February. First I was expecting the apartment to be bright as it is presented in the photos. It is not at all but rather quite dark. This will be fine if you are out sightseeing all day but if like me you are working from home on a longer stay this was quite disappointing and I do feel the apartment is misrepresented in it's photoshopped images. Second when I arrived the apartment wasn't very clean. I had to write Agos to have the cleaner return which he did without hesitation. Other concerns I had during the stay were addressed quickly by Agos. Overall I found it quiet and I slept well despite a thin mattress. Wifi worked perfectly. The location is great and the neighborhood of Borne is right at your doorstep. It is my favourite area of the city and also very close to the beach.
I stayed in this apartment for a month and it was a great experience! The location is perfect and is just the right size for two people to stay. It's a bright apartment, but that can also become really dark, so you can have a good night of sleep.
Kitchen tools are not so great, so not the best place to prepare fancy meals, but well.. you are in Barcelona, so go out and enjoy the local food!
It can be a bit noisy at weekends night since there is a bar in front of the apartment, but usually they quiet down around 1, 2 am, so it didn't bother me.
Overall, it's a good value for money.
The apartment is just like on the pictures and perfect located - in the middle of Born. The equipment of the kitchen is a very rare - 1 glass, 2 knifes, 2 plates and the washing machine doesn't work. Everything else is fine and works. I never meet Agos but a friend of his showed us around. There is a construction work right next to the flat and they start very early. The communication about this was very easy with agos but if you want to sleep in, it is quite impossible.
We stayed here for four weeks in September and had a great time. The apartment is lovely, spacious for two people and full of character. Marina and Agos were very accommodating and helpful. The location is perfect; in central Born, ten minutes walk to the beach, five to Las Ramblas. We were able to walk just about everywhere we wanted to go in Barcelona.
The kitchen was great, came stocked with everything you need and some basic ingredients which is always appreciated. I was able to cook at home a lot. The bed took little getting used to as the mattress is quite thin but I'm finding that's standard in Europe.
The only downside is the noise from renovations in the opposite apartments. We had to keep the doors and windows shut most of the time, and even then it was loud. Hopefully this will be finished soon, but if you like to sleep in past 8am, bring earplugs just to be safe!
Overall I warmly recommend this apartment for a great stay in Barcelona.
We stayed at this apartment for a month and we loved the location. Really near everything so we were able to walk everywhere. The location however was very noisy especially at night and this was made worse by the major building work going on opposite for the entire month.
Overall the apartment was spacious and we had a lot of fun there but be prepared with earplugs if you want to sleep!
We had a realy nice stay in Lucas' apartment. The apartment itself is perfect for a couple that wants to spend some days in the heart of Barcelona. Size and location are great, it provides everything you need and there is really nothing to complain about! The communication before our trip as well as the during the trip was uncomplicated and easy. We would definitely recommend Lucas as a host and his apartment in Borne.
Optimum location, clean flat and good price to quality ratio. I can recommend it
