Imagine your own 5 star hotel room inside an apartment, now double it and we are getting close.
This superbly decorated and fully equipped 2 bedroom apartment has been lovingly restored in November 2012. Without sacrificing the original charm of the 1850's building we have modernized with all of todays luxuries but kept the mosaic tiles, high ceilings and spectacular wood work.
Layout - 2 completely private double rooms with 2 private ensuite baths. Both rooms have two doors each, one door to enter and the other double doors onto the internal patio with natural light.
- massive lounge with a double sofa bed for larger groups or families.
- Brand spanking new kitchen with all the bells & whistles
- Sexy flat-screens TV's in every room, music and wifi
Location - Right in the of el Born (think soho of London or West Village in NYC but better). From the balconies you can almost touch the beautiful church Santa Maria del Mar. Spitting distance to one of the cutest wine bars "La Vinya del Senyor" on Plaza Santa Maria. Fresh Paella just at the end of the street at mama's "Mar de la Ribera".
You are in amongst the action but tucked away behind double glazed windows so when you don't want to you don't have to hear anything.
Transport from here is a breeze but honestly you will probably just walk everywhere:
Metro: Jaume I (Yellow line L4)
The street is quiet, beautiful & pedestrian only access (hence we meet at GoCar to collect the keys).
1. ARRIVAL: I'm happy for you to check in early or check out late if there are no other guests before or afterwards, otherwise check in is from 16:00 and check out by 11:00 to allow plenty of time for the flat to be professionally cleaned. You can always store your bags with the doorman or in the restaurant. If you have a weird flight time let me know and we can work something out :-)
2. How do I submit a reservation request?
Enter your dates & click the Book It button.
You’ll find the Book It button on a listing or in a message thread. Make sure to enter your exact reservation details before you click, then review all details from the checkout page.
3. What is Instant Book?
The Instant Book feature allows you to book instantly without having to wait for my confirmation. This is a bit like a pre-approval without the need for a me to manually pre-approve each guest. I have made this listing available through Instant Book, once the reservation details and payment information are submitted the reservation is automatically confirmed on the site.
4. How does the Airbnb payment system work?
The payment system is secure, reliable, and convenient, supporting many currencies.
When your reservation is accepted, the payment is processed and collected by Airbnb in full.* Whether the reservation is two days or two months away, they hold the payment until 24 hours after check-in before giving it to me. This gives you security that everything is as expected.
5. How does Airbnb handle security deposits?
A security deposit helps protect hosts and guests from accidents that occur during a reservation. For example: spilled wine on the rug, a broken window, or an unreturned key.
Details on the process:
24 hours before check-in, the guest's credit card is authorized for the amount of the deposit.
48 hours after the checkout date, the authorization is released if the host does not make a claim.
This will be your home not a hotel, make yourselves at comfortable and relax :-)
Please no smoking in the house (€250 fine)!
Also please respect the neighbours and keep noise down to a minimum. Barcelona has some funny rules about subletting so just say you are friends of mine if asked, thanks :-)
Damien is the perfect host! He responded quickly to all our questions and was very helpful. The flat is great in all ways. Spacious and clean with two quiet bedrooms. The location couldn't be better. Just in the heart of the best neighborhood in Barcelona. I will definitely recommend this to everyone!
We loved the flat
Very smooth check in
Clean and everything you need there
Die Wohnung ist genau so wie beschrieben. Super gelegen und doch ruhig. Damien hat immer sofort geantwortet. Als es uns zu kalt war, hat er sofort mit einer Elektroheizung reagiert. Top Service!
Lovely flat, exactly as pictured and described, in a great area - Damien's assistant met us promptly, was friendly and had some good tips for the area. A really enjoyable visit!
Professionelles Management und super schnelle Antworten bei Fragen. Die Lage, Ausstattung Sauberkeit und das Design der Wohnung sind absolut perfekt. Die Schlafzimmer sind nach hinten raus und entsprechend ruhig. Das Viertel Born ist genial, tolle Bars/Restaurants aber nicht ganz so touristisch überlaufen. Ich kann das Apartment nur weiterempfehlen.
Muy bien!! Todo el mundo muy amable, piso lindo decorado bien y situado en el mejor barrio de Barcelona!! Vayan seguramente.

Having traveled and lived all over the world I appreciate the simple pleasures and the benefits of staying in a home rather than a hotel. I started off with sharing my spare rooms through Airbnb and now with the help of my little team we have a dozen private luxury apartments, however we strive to maintain the family feel and love to share the best of Barcelona with you.
My assistants Karolina and Maria, the cleaning team and I are here to help.
Feel free to grab a drink from the fridge and I encourage you to buy some amazing ingredients at the market and utilize the kitchen.
