We had a great time at BORNE-1OldTown. We we were welcomed with coffee, cake, wine and breakfast which made us feel at home from the very first moment.
The apartment is great and equipped with a 5* equipped kitchen and living room. Great wide very comfortable beds which made us sleep like babies... The Nespresso machine with all capsules provided made our mornings... Supermarket right around the corner and so is a great bakery. The Triumph arc is meters away and so is the subway.
The only point to mention is the bathroom that functions well but needs renovation (of which the owner said he will do, and I believe he will do so soon).
We had a great time Sailor! Thanks a lot.
Amazing experience. My wife and two kids all had a memory forever. The location couldn't be better (we stayed at ritz Carlton the week prior and much preferred the partner). Lots of shops, restaurants and cafes in walking distance. If I could quit my job in NYC and move the family to Barcelona I would! Certainly hope to return and stay in same apartment. Can't recommend it enough!
I would definitely recommend Marino's flat. It is very comfortable and clean, in a great location, with friendly and helpful hosts. We really enjoyed our stay.
The added touches of Sachertorte and Nespresso coffee were lovely! Thank you.
Very nice place to stay, excellent area, lots of nice places to go. Flexible check in, all you need for a pleasant time in Barcelona. Thanks!
We stayed in Barcelona for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip in Spain. We rented a car. It was very important to find a place next to the parking. Marino was very friendly and helpful. He provided us with information about parking Saba on the Arc de Triumph. It was just 5 min walk from his apartment. We book parking in advance and didn't worry about it at all.
The place was very nice and clean. The kitchen had everything . The bed was very big and comfortable. We found two good grocery stores 5 min walk from the place. There are many bakeries around. We liked to buy some fresh pastries before breakfast. It was easy to walk in the downtown.
I would recommend to watch flamenco show at Palau Dalmases. It is 7 min walk from the apartment. We found this place by chance. The show was very amazing.
There is a metro station 7 min walk from the place. We went to Gaudi park and to the Magic fountains by metro. It was very easy and convenient.
Marino was very good host. He was always available. We got a big chocolate welcome cake from his coffee shop.
Thanks a lot for making our trip very comfortable!
The apartment is conveniently located next to Arc de Triomf. The hosts were kind enough to come pick us up to the agreed location in spite of our early arrival to Barcelona. We were even presented with a gorgeous chocolate cake from the bakery below the apartment on our arrival. They were extremely helpful in explaining everything the surrounding area had to offer and they left all we needed to enjoy Barcelona from the get-go (towels, linen, mineral water, milk, coffee...). The apartment has a working Internet connection and Spain/Barcelona guides for you to arrange your trip. Totally recommend them!
Marino was very kind. Even så we were 90min late, he kindly waited for us and even had some delicious cakes prepared. The apartment was as described.

Hola, nací en León y a los 20 años vine a estudiar artes plásticas y fotografía a Barcelona, hace unos años, empecé a alquilar mi apartamento de la Sagrada Familia cuando me trasladé al borne en el casco antiguo.
Me gusta mucho la experiencia de conocer gente de otros países y siempre intentamos que los huéspedes tengan una estancia lo mas agradable posible.
