  • The apartment is absolutely adorable! The view from the balcony gives you the vibe of the old town. Juan and his wife are great hosts, ready to help with anything, and trying their best to make your Barcelona experience most enjoyable. I might sound like a paid commercial but in all honesty, we had a great stay and I'm definitely recommending this place to any friends who wish to visit Barca.
    The location is great, metro and train stations nearby, beach is 10 min walk, Gothic Quartet is a few blocks away, lovely parks and museums all around within walking distance. You won't need to use public transport much because of the close proximity to everything. I recommend hiring a bike.
    The neighborhood is very nice, and at night is close to some great bars and nightclubs.
    It's just the perfect place to stay really for your vacation here.

  • Mi esposa y yo pasamos una agradable estancia en Barcelona, Juan fue de mucha ayuda al recogernos en la madrugada y darnos datos históricos sobre la ciudad, así como consejos de como trasladarnos a los lugares que nos interesaban. La habitacion era muy agradable y el barrio en una super ubicacion, realmente lo recomendamos. Muchas gracias Juan.

  • Nous avons été surprise du peu de lumière dans l'appartement, mais l'avantage c'est qu'il est très bien placé dans la vieille ville, le quartier est super ! Belem est une femme très gentille et discrète. Le matelas est très dur, donc vigilence pour ceux qui ne sont pas habitués à ce style là. Pour ce qui est du bruit, la semaine c'est calme, mais attention, les WE sont agités ! (petit bar dans la ruelle) . Demandez bien à l'avance le lieu de Rendez-vous, coordonnées. Le prix reste imbattable..

  • Just perfect stay in the center of Barcelona! The location is amazing, next to the Picasso museum, 7-10 minutes from beach, and everything else is pretty close, you don't even have to use any public transport. You will find everything you need in the lovely and clean apartment and the room is really comfortable and pretty big, so it's just a perfect spot for two people trying to have the best time in the best city. The room also have a very sweet small balcony that brings the real spanish atmosphere in your stay.
    Belen is very nice and kind and friendly and supportive, so as you may see we liked her a lot! :) She picked us from the train station, and offered us a small tour around neighborhood, also she helped us to recover (we don't feel well, just a few days earlier we caught a cold). Belen gave us some really good medicine that helped us a lot. We haven't actually met Juan, but I spoke to him on the phone and it seems to me that he is just on of the nicest persons in the whole Barcelona.
    So if you are choosing this guys and this apartment for your stay in Barcelona you a priori make the right choice!!!
    Thank you Belen & Juan, we definitely will come back ;)

  • Amazing couple who were willing to go out of their way to help with everything! Belen was super calm and approachable and the flat had a really nice ambience. If you're looking for a cosy setting in a truly awesome location, look no further than this sunny room in Borne Barcelona ;)

    Thank you both for all your help (particularly with all my luggage), really enjoyed the guided tour too. I hope we can meet again!

  • Perfect stay for us in Barcelona! Me and a friend really liked this beautiful located appartment, in the middle of El Born (!). The location and friendliness of Belén (we didn't meet Juan personally) brought our stay in Barcelona to a next level. The first day Belén picked us up from Estacion de Francia (train-station which is very near - 5 minutes walk) and showed us the area for a good orientation. This was lovely. After that she gave us the keys and we could go and come back whenever we wanted. The room was very nice, we both really liked the Japanese beds. My back almost always hurts when I wake up, even at home, but I was very suprised of these beds because I woke up without any backpain, which was the first time in months. You wouldn't expect it because they seem to be very hard, but I loved it!
    Belén is a very nice person and the appartment is clean and comfortable. A good choice! Thanks for everything!

Vivo con mi pareja, Belén, en una casa amable, en el Borne de Barcelona. Durante muchos años he vivido y trabajado en la ciudad de Londres y anteriormente en Milán. Puedo hablar diferentes idiomas como inglés, francés, italiano, alemán. Mi mujer y yo, nos consideramos personas internacionales y gratas. Personas que nos gusta ayudar a otras a conseguir sus sueños. Nos gusta mucho el Shiatsu japonés y damos masajes de Shiatsu, a todos aquellos que nos lo soliciten, al ser muy interesante y recomendado como arte energético de sanación tradicional japonés. Hemos visitado Kyoto y Osaka, y nos impresionó muchísimo. Tenemos amigos en muchas partes del mundo. Y ahora, nos toca vivir y desarrollarnos en la ciudad de Barcelona, donde yo soy escritor, músico y atiendo temas relacionados con Turismo junto a la promoción de masajes terapéuticos japoneses. El Borne de Barcelona es un Micromundo. Donde se combina, el pasado Medieval, de la ciudad, a sólo diez minutos de la playa y de las embarcaciones - yates privados de lujo y recreo -, con la Catedral del Mar , y su antigua pertenencia al mundo romano, que se hace presente en su muralla y en los vestigios de la Antigua Julia Augusta Barcino. Con calles estrechas, limpias, sin coches y sin ruidos de motores que invitan a agradables paseos, con restaurantes, bares de copas y tiendas vanguardistas. Donde para los amantes de La Cultura y el Conocimiento se convierte en un pequeño paraíso al existir una gran gama de museos dedicados a diferentes periodos históricos y temas, destacando el Museo de Arte Precolombino, el Museo Europeo de Arte Contemporáneo, el Museo de Arte Primitivo de Cavernas, Mamuts y Pinturas Rupestres, que junto con el Museo sobre la vida y obra de Pablo Picasso, el Museo del Chocolate, Museo de Antiguos Carruajes y Museos de Historia Antigua y romana, hacen del lugar un punto energético importantísimo para ser visitado por personas amables y con ganas de vivir.
