About this listing
If you really want to enjoy your holidays in Barcelona you found the right place. A nice double room in front of the Catedral Santa Maria del Mar in the heart of the city is waiting for you. The room is completely furnished: double bed, two bedside tables, a wardrobe with mirror, a recessed shelf, a drawer recessed and a small balcony.
The neighborhood is surrounded by the best bars and restaurants in the city as confirmed by Tripavisor. Next to the park thereis a Tram stop, bus stops, Estació del Nord (230) and Estacion de Francia (800) and three subway stops around: Jaume I (270), Barceloneta (450) and Arco de Triunfo (800). The area is surrounded by the most typical Barcelona shops, including some very historical. In the same building there is one of the oldest shops in Barcelona where you can sample typical Catalan products. At few meters you will also find places to rent bicycles or scooters.
I am a simple person who really love Barcelona and enjoy the neighborhood and its history everyday. The idea comes from the desire to share the beauty of El Born and the city with as many people as possible; several spoken languages (English, Spanish, Dutch, Italian and some French) very glad to provide you all the info and help you so that you can really enjoy your holidays.
The apartment is located in El Born, a few meters from the main attractions of the city: Santa Maria del Mar (10), Museo Picasso (50), Paseo del Born (20), Parc de la Ciutadella (350), Las Ramblas (800), Barceloneta (450), Plaza Catalunya / Airbus station (1000), Arco de Triunfo (800), Catedral of Barcelona (550) and much more. If you want you can also access to the building's terrace to have a nice view of the city.

Luca est un hôte prévenant et très arrangeant.
L'appartement est au centre du Born, quartier vivant de Barcelone. Nous avons pu réaliser la plupart des visites à pied grâce à la bonne localisation de l'appartement.
Luca prend soin de ses invités et est très à l'écoute des diverses demandes.
L'appartement est très propre.
Luca es una persona muy agradable. El apartamento esta muy limpio y la situación es muy buena. El único problema es el ruido de la calle los fines de semana, pero es normal ... Es el Born ..! Muchas gracias por tu amabilidad Luca ..!
A nice, clean room in an old building, very well located in the heart of El Born. The bathroom is shared but very clean and basically feels like private.
Luca is a very friendly host, helpful and flexible with the checkout.
All in all, a perfect stay!
Luca welkomed us in the middle of the night because of our late flight. He took the time to explain everything and we had a little chat. Luca is a really kind and warm person! He put some water, biscuits and a map of Barcelona next to our bed. He gave us clean towels every two days and he cleaned the bathroom every day. When we left he baked his famous apple pie and he made coffee for our last breakfast! This appartment is so nice to stay, in the best area of Barcelona! I really receommend this place to everyone!
Fantastic stay! Luca is a super host - really responsive and helpful, gave restaurant and sightseeing suggestions, offered to meet us at the nearby metro station to help us find the apartment (but there was no need - it's very easy to find), and is even mailing me back the pair of leggings I forgot at the apartment! Very clean, lovely bathroom, provided everything we needed (including some very welcome water and cookies on arrival). Great amount of privacy, but Luca is also very friendly and happy to chat. Located in a great neighbourhood, near a lot of restaurants and literally next door to the beautiful gothic church! The only thing to keep in mind is that this can be quite the party neighbourhood on Friday and Saturday nights, and with the apartment being on the second floor (and the windows opened in the summer heat), it can be very noisy from the street. So bring some earplugs if you're a sensitive sleeper. But overall, can't recommend it enough, a great stay! Thanks Luca :)
Luca is an amazing host. He met me right outside the Santa Maria del Mar church which is incredibly easy to find and took me to his beautiful apartment, which is right alongside the church. His place is extremely clean and the room I stayed in was large, comfortable, and had a large window. He was also very generous with his time and information, giving me lots of ideas for places to visit, eat, and drink at all in the wonderful neighborhood of El Born. The only small issue was that there was some construction occurring one of the mornings in the alley outside the room, but this wasn't Luca's fault and he even provided me with complimentary ear plugs.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to a friend and would look forward to staying there again the next time I visit Barcelona.
Luca was an extremely considerate host. Or room was clean and comfortable. The location of his apartment is perfect for seeing the city. It's right near many great restaurants and places to shop.
Luca was very gracious in helping us learn about the local attractions and doing a load of laundry for us. We were very happy with our two night stay and would gladly stay again.
