Some of Barcelona's nicest cafe's and tastiest restaurants are all close-by.
There are also two metro stations just a few minutes walk away, the nearest of which is Jaume I (about 100meters walking distance!). Bus, RENFE Trains and TRAM T4 all public transport you can think of is just a few minutes away.
Born is definetly the most beautiful & best area in the center for a nice holiday.
FROM THE AIRPORT: The easiest way to get to the apartment is simply to jump in a taxi outside the airport which will cost around 25 to 30€. If you're travelling along and want to save money there is a train link from the airport (T2) but trains only leave every hour or so (annoying if you just miss one) so it's easier and cheaper to jump on the blue AeroBus (from both Terminals T1 & T2) from the airport (7€ - leaves every 15 minutes) and then take a taxi from the final stop Plaça Cataluña (10€)
BY TRAIN: If you are arriving by train, Estación de Francia is just a three minutes stroll from the apartment, from which you can also jump on a train to the beaches and day trips outside the city including Sitges, Figueras and Montserrat.
I rent day by day and i have special offers for weekly and monthly rentals (check the calendar for pricing or just write us a message and we work out a special offer within your budget!). We also offer long time rentals up to 6 months, in special cases I also accept it can be even 12 months.

Toni's flat is in a fantastic location, right in the heart of the gothic quarter. It has beautiful original tiles and features. The flat is quite dark - but we were out most of the time! Toni was a great host, easy arrival and departure & came back to us immediately with any queries.
A lovely spacious and comfortable flat in a perfect situation. Tony is an absolute gentlemen, and I'm sure we will stay in touch. Thanks again mate!
A unique, vintage flat in a fabulous location, large and comfortable, lots of precious detail & texture (better than photos). We loved it and would stay again. Some things are dated, but everything works fine. Toni is wonderful, takes care of his guests and is fast to respond.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Toni was an excellent host, accommodating us last minute when we needed to add an extra day. The space was beautiful, very affordable for the size of the place, and centrally located to everything. Our stay was wonderful because of this. We were warned about the noise on the street from past reviews but I didn't find it nearly as bad as people claimed. The water for the shower was a trouble at times but that was our only complaint. We would absolutely stay again and recommend it to others.
The + = Great great great location (one street from Picasso museum! ), spacious, 2 big rooms, full kitchen and a wash machine. All we needed. Toni is kind and did answed quickly by mail.
The - = the bath was not clean and the shower in it did not work so well. We did not take our shower everyday because of this.. The street is very busy, espacialy bu night. BUT, it's a kind of charming..it's Barcelona! :) Depends of you..
Great location! This flat was right in the gothic area, which is a perfect spot to base your Barcelona trip from. The bed was comfortable and the apartment spacious.
