Our cool and comfortable 1 or 2 bedroom apartment with exposed brick has a true Barcelona feeling! Just blocks from Picasso Museum, comfortably fits four/five people and is centrally located on a quiet street, in a gorgeous pedestrian neighborhood!!
Hello! Thank you for looking at our listing!
This is a listing for a private apartment, located in the very heart of the neighborhood called El Borne, in the very center of Barcelona. The apartment is just five minutes from the Picasso Museum, Santa Maria del Mar church, the beautiful Parc Ciutadella, the Barcelona Zoo, Arc de Triumph, Estacio de Francia, and many more landmark spots! The location is superb and so central, just downstairs from the apartment there is a beautiful restaurant, Mercat Princesa, featuring 15 booths serving delicious spanish food, coffee, sushi and great breakfasts. Many cute cafes, bars, restaurants and shops are just around the corner from the apartment. You can walk, or hop on a quick bus ride and be at the beach in less than ten minutes.

The apartment is very spacious, it has one large bedroom with a cozy double bed and beautiful antique exposed brick walls, a big living room with a comfortable sofa bed. There is a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, as well as a modern dining room that seats five people, and of course a bathroom with a bathtub/shower. The apartment has high speed 100mb Fiber optic Internet, and the building has a doorman and elevator.
The closest metro stop is Jaume I (or Barceloneta) on the yellow Line 4. There are also many buses that stop close to the apartment, making it fast and easy to head to the beach. The flat is also just five minutes walking distance from Estacio de Francia and about ten minutes from Estacio del Nord.
The apartment has a very open feel and is decorated with taste. The exposed brick walls in the bedroom are beautiful! But nothing is more perfect than the location of this flat, you are really in the heart of Barcelona! If you book our flat, you will receive a list of our favorite places to check out in the neighborhood, so you can get the insider's guide to our city :)

The apartment is very well located and has a good size. It could have a little bit of better maintenance. There was not enough hot water to shower 2 adults, there where other inconveniences and most of them where solved by Pauline and Laurene (such as the Internet not working, 2 days and 2 times).
This is the second time I rent from them, (although different apartments, I prefer the other one much better, as it was cleaner and better maintained). Laurene and Pauline responded in what they could in a prompt way. Still I wish they where able to fix the shower, but I definitely will rent from them again (but I will prefer another apartment, or the same one after a good maintainance)
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The apartment is beautifully located, in the heart of the bohemien neighborhood of El Born, just few steps from Picasso Museum, Paseo del Borne and Santa Maria del Mar Church. We have visited almost the entire city without using public transport, just walking around without any problem! El Born is full with nice shops, alternative restaurants and tapas bar; Santa Caterina Market is 5 mins walk. We have left the car in the El Born Parking just at the end of the road (26 Euro/24 hours).
As far as the apartment itself is concerned, it shoud have been a little more cleaned and equipped (especially the kitchen); toilet and kitchen paper were missing, as well as soap in the bathroom. We also suggest curtains in the living room area. At our arrival, we found the apartment extremely cold, since there is no heating system (only a small electric radiator), but I think it is normal in Barcelona!
We have been welcomed by Florencia, who gave us the keys, but very few information about the city.
We reccomend this location and would return for a further stay in Barcelona!
Just as it says, this is really in the centre of El borne. We spent a family weekend in Barcelona The appartment is conveniently located and we parked our car in the garage El born, only 100 m from the apartment. Just off the doorsteps of the house there are plenty of popular eating/drinking places and smaller supermarkets. The metro is just a short walk from it. The appartment is nice and could easily cater me and my wife plus our three kids (in the sofa bed ).
Disappointed with Lauren for not following through her agreement with us to refund a portion of the cost. We had one less person staying at the apartment and she agreed to refund us the difference in cash during our 2 night stay. We texted Pauline each day for a good time to meet and even said we were happy for her to slide it under the door of the apartment, however received no response until the last day, stating that we would be refunded by electronic transfer. We had also texted about leaving our luggage at the apartment after checkout on the last day to be picked up later in the afternoon before we left for the airport - again, no response until after the checkout time by which point we had checked out and made other arrangements with our luggage. After returning home, I supplied Lauren with the bank details for the refund but she is now refusing to do so saying that we had a late checkout - which we did not because of the very poor response time/communication from her. The apartment is in a good location in El Born however if you don't want to spend your trip (and post trip) chasing up issues or waiting for a response, I would not recommend you book here.
Bel appartement bien situé dans le quartier El born. Bien pour 4-5 (website hidden)ès pratique pour visiter Barcelone à pied.
Il y un bar/Resto en bas ce qui génère beaucoup de bruit les week-ends.
Il serait pratique d'ajouter des rideaux opaques aux fenêtres.
A great location, in a very secure and quiet apartment. The kitchen was Spartan, and could use some new glasses and cookware. A microwave would also help. The a/c worked well, but was not completely installed, and required manual daily draining. However the bed was very comfortable, and the location is the best.
The flat is awesome, clean, big, and near bar and restaurants. Right beneath the flat is a huge cafe/restaurant and is always busy. we loved our stay there a would totally stay there again! Also, try the corner tapas place-- bormuth, it's amazing!
Très bel appartement mais mal équipé, peu de vaisselle, électroménager vétuste et climatisation qui fuie. Par contre bien placé dans le vieux quartier de Barcelone à deux pas du Musée Picasso, tout peut se faire à pieds.
Clean and nice apartment. Good location in Born. Close to almost everything. I would absolutely recommend this place to other people.
