The Neighborhood

. From this apartment we think is a strategic site , and provides a reading of the very particular city. You are close to downtown, but not " in the middle " wanting in tranquility and taste more barcelones . But in 20 minutes you are walking calmly on the Ramblas .
8. Proximity to the largest city park (Ciutadella ) and the beaches of Barceloneta and Icaria both ( Olimpic games) really stands out . Many things to do around , it also highlights the proximity to the famous clubs of the city (5 minutes walking ) , or the charming neighborhood of "Born" , Santa Maria del Mar ... or 22@

Check In
  • Great hosts, great apartment, and great location!! Apartment had everything we needed. Loved the coffee shop and fruit store right around the corner for breakfast. Pizza place across the street is delicious and the beach is just a few blocks away!!

  • This is a nice apartment which was well located and easy to find. Perfect for small groups or families with two bathrooms, bedrooms and in a safe neighborhood. It is easy to walk to the Gothic section and the subway stop nearby connects you to all areas of the city.

  • Great place with everything you need for your stay. We had a fully equipped kitchen, clean and new bathrooms, internet, a place to relax and to rest between the many activities to do in Barcelona.
    The hosts are very nice and kind and will help you in any way possible.

  • This really was a prefect place to stay in Barcelona. Sonia and Alfonso were so nice, helpful and welcoming. They communicated well and were flexible in coordinating a time to meet them to get the keys and to get tour of apartment. They provided information about local restaurants and sights based on my interests that were perfect and really enhanced my stay.

    The apartment is clean, modern and in such a great location for exploring not only El Born and the Marina, but also easy walking distance from several metro stops. There is a bike rental shop a few blocks away that I made use of (would recommend renting a bike to see the town... Barcelona is very bike friendly).

    I would not hesitate renting from these wonderful hosts again and in fact I could even see myself living in an apartment like this. Next time I come to visit Barcelona I will be looking to rent this apartment.

  • My mom and I loved the place, the area and the owners. They were very nice people, however, the place is not too well maintained. It was incredibly dusty and too much hair left on the ground-- my mom and I got allergic attacks and left sick.. If you're not big on allergy, this is the perfect place. However, when we told the owners, they immediately brought the vacuum and helped us. Which was very professional and kind. They even changed the sheets as requested. This place is a beautiful apartment. Very convenient everything! Just make sure you don't have severe asthma or allergy!! I would come back, just remind them if you have asthma beforehand.

    Response from Sonia & Affonso:

    Sorry for the question of asthma, and because of the situation, we change the sheets like you asked us. We have the most care with cleaning, Always with vacuum. Everything is washed in professional laundry. Maybe because the climate change (fall) could contributed. Hope to have you back. And you are really nice people. Best.

  • nice owner and very nice apartment, we will be back soon.

    thanks Philippe.

  • pros: Our host was really quick at responding to our messages, were on time for our arrival, helped us settle in, provided maps and brochures for activities. The apartment is big, has fast and reliable internet. The kitchen is good size, and it is well integrated with the dining area.
    also, the apartment is located close to metro Marina (L1) and within walking distance of Lidl supermarket, the beach (south), Sagrada Familia (north) and city (west), with a wonderful walk through parq cituadella.

    cons: The bed was very used and uneven, which meant we slept quite badly. There is a constant light from the street the master bedroom during the night and therefore, if light is a concern for you, it is not ideal.
    You were not allowed to throw toiletpaper in the toilets.

    For the price: we were only 2, so 55 plus airbnb fee and cleaning fee, it becomes a little much. I would recommend doing it with 3 or more people.
