About this listing

Wonderful flat in the heart of Borne, the "coolest" area in Barcellona. Bars, restaurants, shops, museums, the city park, the calm of a really Barcelona house and really close to the beach. You can't find better place! :-)

Description

The space

Hello, my apartment is located right in the heart of Borne, a very lively and elegant neighborhood in the center of Barcelona.

This is an actual house (I live between Barcelona and Milan), and I feel it has much more personality than a tourist apartments, which tend to be a bit anonymous.

The building is a well-kept old construction and it lies on a quiet and charming pedestrian-only street. I fell in love with it because I felt it summed Barcelona's bohemian style and its elegance.

The apartment is for 2 people. It is made of an entrance, a small but practical bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen / living room, and one bedroom. It is on the 5° floor (no lift!!). It is fully furnished and there are some small but important things..photos, books, plants…please take care of them please as if they were yours!

The neighbourhood is fun and lively, and on the street there are many nice shops and restaurants. Although very quiet, the party is just a few steps away on the Paseo del Born. The Parc de la Ciutadella (BCN's biggest park) is a short walk away, and you can reach the beach by foot (15 min walk). In the neighborhood there are also the Picasso Museum, the zoo, the Santa Caterina Market (and soon the beautiful Borne Market, still under renovation).

Although I'm pretty sure you'll be able to walk everywhere and take advantage of Barcelona's great weather, the apartment is very well connected: the main train station (Estació de França) is 4 blocks away, the bus station (Norte) is 10 min by foot (good if you land in Girona). Jaume I (yellow line stop) is 10 minutes away.

Note:
2014 - ADSL wi-fi (hi-speed) unlimited!

Guest access

Interaction with guests

Location, location, location! This apartment is in such a good location, I could say nothing else about it and that would be enough. It was in walking distance of so many great things to see (markets, cathedrals, museums, cafes, bars and restaurants). I took the metro daily and it is only a short walk away, which unlocks the rest of Barcelona. Matteo's apartment was a great place to relax and recharge after a busy day and Matteo was a great host. He made the entire AirBnB experience very easy with a wonderful hand-off of the keys upon check-in. The apartment is artsy and bright and despite the building being a classic style, the decor is up-to-date and stylish. Matteo was very thoughful and left a bottle of wine and bottled water for me. The only thing to be aware of is that the apartment is "walk-up" style on the 5th floor, so stairs must be climbed. Great work out! :) I would definitely stay here again! Thanks Matteo!

We had a fantastic time at Matteo's super cute apartment. He warned us about the five flights of stairs, but we found that it was great to be far above the street-level buzz of El Born. The apartment is in a perfect location, and has everything you would expect. One bonus: air conditioning - a lifesaver during Barcelona's hot summer.

We spent a week in Matteo's apartment. We wanted something with a bit more than the typical Airbnb flat's in Barcelona offer. Matteo's place was perfect for our stay. He had everything we needed for a week stay which included washing clothes, cooking meals, using wifi a lot (great internet connection), and nestled in a wonderful district. Be ready to climb the stairs to the 5th floor, but it's totally worth it. Great value especially for its location in Born surrounded by some of the best food we had while in BCN.

Matteo was a great host, he was very helpful from our arrival to the departure. He explained us everything, was available anytime we needed something. He even bought us a bottle of wine! A very nice person who made our stay easy and comfortable. The apartment was clean, sunny, and looked way better than on the photos! I would go to this place again for sure and strongly recommend it. Thank you so much for the holidays we enjoyed

We just loved our stay at Matteo's ! It is a cool flat indeed, but more than this : the location is perfect -Born is our favorite district, so typical and lively, full of bars, restaurants, in the center, and not to far from the beach- and the flat has been so tastefully designed and furnished ! Quiet in an exciting area, what else? Only good vibes in there. Last, Matteo was lovely, fully available and well organised, and he gave us a lot of good tips and recommendations ! We were so sad to leave !

Matteo has a great apartment smack in the middle of Born, which is a beautiful and lively neighborhood. Very near the Ciutadella parc and walking distance to Raval, the beach, and everything you would ever want. We were welcomed by a friend of Matteo's and also by his supercute dog Apple, which was a nice beginning of our stay. :) The apartment is tidy and cosy, with lots of personal details that show this is a living space of a creative person. It has everything you need for sleeping, cooking and living as if you were at home. Make sure to read Matteos guide book, he has a lot of good recommendations, but do not miss the nearby place Picnic for brunch- it's amazing.
