Welcome to Barcelona's Old town!!
This appartment is located in the very center of the city, 2 min. walk to Paseo de Born and 10 min to the Barcelonat Beach. The neighborhood "El Borne" is the trendiest part of the old city of Barcelona. The area is full of restaurants, bars, art galleries and the shops of all kind. The little street named "Portal Nou" makes a reference to the old roman times of Barcino and it actually means "New Portal" since there was an entrance through the defense wall of the city. The remains of this wall, dated from the IV century, can be seen in many places around this area.
This cozy one piece apartment has a living room/bedroom with a doble bed (futon) that can be turned into a sofa, so it acommodates two people. It has a balcony to the street so light and fresh air is guaranteed. It has a kitchenette equipped with fridge/freezer, washing machine and everything needed to cook and eat. It has a wardrob to keep all your clothes tidy, a bar-type table. The bathroom has a bathtub and it has been recently renovated. In the living there is a TV . The appartment is provided with linen for the bed and towels.
The location is great, being the street a small street, only two min to buzzing and exciting Paseo del Born, but far enough of it to be quiet. The area is full of restaurants with nice terraces,bars and pubs. Just downstairs there is a bakery where you can buy fresh bread and pastries. Supermarket and other facilities are also very close by. This bohemian part of the old center of Barcelona is well known for the art galeries and atéliers of outcoming artists.
I hope you really enjoy your stay in both the appartment and the city, with all it has to offer!
AIRPORT PICK UP:
Get a lift from the airport directly to the apartment for only 20€ (25€ after 8pm). I provide this service with my private car or with a friend of mine when I don't have the time. It's the easiest and fastest way to get to the apartment and when you are 2 oe 3 people it's almost the same price than taking the aerobus and the metro. Ask for availability!!
NOTE: check in time 15:00, check out 12:00. Check ins after 20:00 will be charged 20€ extra. Check out's during the evening/night (when possible) are charged 20 € extra.

It was as expected. A small very adequate flat in an old part of town. I would note- the front door and stairs are quite narrow. If you are a large person this place may not be for you. Everything you need in the heart of Barcelona.
I really enjoyed my stay here. It's small but perfectly suitable for 1-2 people, and it's got everything you need (even wifi from the bakery across the road until around 9pm :)
The flat is in an absolutely perfect location for exploring Barcelona by foot, in a lovely area with loads of small bars, restaurants, and shops, close to the sea and right next to a big park.
I suppose the only downside is that it's on the first floor and you get some noise and exhaust fumes from the small street if you leave the balcony door open (there's hardly any traffic except scooters though and no bars in the street), but I suppose that's life in a city!
I was quite sad to leave "my little apartment" and I'd happily stay again.
We were extremely happy with our stay. Albert organised pick up at the airport which was convenient as we arrived late. The apartment is exactly as described, clean, cozy and ideal for a couple. The location is the biggest advantage with many of Barcelona's attractions within walking distance and the metro nearby also.
Albert´s apartment is great.
Very well located, close to many restaurants, cafes and shops.
Small but bright and very clean and tidy.
I really would recommend this place to anyone
We had a wonderful week in Barcelona in this apartment.
The apartment is small, but it is perfect if you are a couple that just want to get around and explore the beautiful city of Barcelona. The apartment has everything you need and is located in the El Born quarter, which is a very nice area of Barcelona with lots of narrow streets – we loved it!
It is also close to the city centre and the beach, and a lot of the must-see attractions are in walking-distance from the apartment if you don't mind walking a couple of kilometers in the streets of this beautiful city. We rarely used public transport.
Albert was a great and friendly host. We had him pick us up at the airport, and it was so nice and convenient to be driven directly to the apartment.
The bed could have been better and the tv set seemed to have some loose connections, but that wasn't really anything to complain about. Other than that everything was absolutely brilliant!
We will recommend this apartment to friends and family, and we would absolutely love to come back some day!
Bon accueil, bon contact avec Albert, l'appartement correspond à la description et le quartier est très sympa.
Super helpful- thanks for everything!
Albert was very prompt to respond and very helpful from the start. Immanuel (Malin's husband) picked us up at the airport and was very friendly and helpful. It was a very nice little apartment, and in a great location - 15-20 minute walk to the city center and the beach.
Great apartment! Great host! Lovely neighbourhood and good location! We felt there like at home and nothing bothered us)) I would definitely recommend this flat to others!
My husband & I had the pleasure of staying in 2 of Albert & Malin's apartments. This was the second one we stayed in & we really enjoyed our time. The apartment is clean & bright with a balcony that lets you look out onto the bustling street. The bakery across the street has great stuff. The Arc de Triumph is less than 5 minutes away, making this an ideal location for checking out tourist sites. If you walk in the direction opposite the Arc, you'll get a good feel of the El Raval neighborhood & its residents.
Protip: We learned very quickly that the hot water tank is tiny, so keep that in mind when showering :)
