I will be in business travel during those days so you can enjoy my home...
The apartment is perfect for a couple or someone who likes to enjoy Barcelona in this beautiful neighborhood. I'm living here since 1998:)))
It is located next to Cathedral Sta. Maria del Mar and 7 min. walking to the beach...you can walk almost everywhere in Barcelona from here.
Fully equiped... and fast Wi-Fi!
Carles is a very good host ! Quick answers of any questions and a very welcoming guy.
The flat is perfect to discover Barcelona very good location, sunny and well organised.
Don't forget that the flat is on the fifth level of the building with no elevator.
We couldn't have asked for a better location. The apartment is smack in the middle of the older part of the city. Instead of Las Ramblas' chaos there are are small pedestrian streets lined with shops, bars, restaurants, bike rentals etc. The walk to the beach is also short.
Carles was out of town, so his girlfriend waited patiently for our very late arrival past midnight, which was very kind of her as we kept getting delayed while we were driving from Italy.
The double bed is comfortable, but the single sofa bed was too uncomfortable for someone 187cm tall.
We struggled with parking, as I could never figure out the street parking system in Barcelona. After a lot of research I found that the paid underground parking at Carrer del Dr. Aiguader road, just before university/hospital by the beach offered the best deal - where you get 5 days parking for the price of 1.
The apartment is on the 5th floor without a lift, which we quickly got used too. You probably won't find many lifts in any of the old buildings in this district anyway. But it was worth it, getting up high from the street it felt like we had a bit more air and space. And with the central location it was easy to pop back home quickly whenever needed while we were wandering the streets.
Thank you very much for your evaluation.
I'm very sorry, I think I didn't write any evaluation about you... As you know I was working a lot out of Barcelona, and finally I didn't have time...
Anyway, if someone reads this, I really recommend you. The communication was very good, and the apartment was very clean when you leave it.
Thank you again, and I hope to meet with you next time.
Carles wasn't physically in Barcelona during my stay, but he made sure I was greeted properly when I arrived and was very responsive whenever I asked for something. The place is friendly and spacious, the neighborhood gorgeous and within walking distance to the beach. There are a lot of good restaurants around. Barcelona was great and Carles' home made it possible.
Carla and Carles have a cozy, bright apartment that really feels like a home. We felt like we could treat it as our own and they were very warm with helping us settle in when we first arrived. Also, this place is walking distance to a lot of cute cafes and restaurants, so you'll definitely have access to the best parts of the city from here. Thanks for welcoming us into your home:)
Tuvimos una excelente estadía en el apartamento de Carles el cuál nos resultó muy bien ubicado según nuestros intereses de visita en Barcelona. El Born es.un barrio con mucho movimiento día y noche, lo que lo hace transitado y seguro, aunque un poco bullicioso por momentos. Vale destacar que el apartamento tiene ventanas doble vidrio que aislan muy bien el ruido exterior. La comunicación con Carles es muy sencilla, él es muy preciso con las indicaciones y eso hace que todo sea más fácil. Hasta la próxima Carles! Gracias por todo.
The flat is in my favorite district in Barcelona, close to many restaurants and bars all is pediestran and not far away from the beach you can do everything by walking. The flat is clean there is 2 rooms for 3 people and one bathroom. Thanks for your trust !
