Fully restored and refurbished in 2011. Located on a street with no traffic and only 10 minute walk distance to the beach. Close to Museu Picasso, El Palau de la Musica, Museu d'Historia.
The apartment is located in the most trendy area of Barcelona , the old Middle Age town which at the same time was built over the Roman town of Barcino. The street with no traffic and is 2 minutes from all little terraces, fashion shops and cozy restaurants. Borne is like a small village in the city. Fashionable but very authentic.
The neighborhood is one of the most charming areas of Barcelona, el Born. The Born area is the the old Middle Age town which at the same time was built over the Roman town of Barcino.
The area is full of little restaurants, boutiques, wineries...and walking distance to many of the most interesting spots for Barcelona. You hardly will need to use public transport but if you do the "metro" or underground is 2 minutes walking distance from the apartment.
Public trasnport in Barcelona is quite cheap. The nearest metro is only 2 minutes from the apartment. In any case let me recommend you to use taxis as the price here is not so high. A metro ticket will cost you 2 euros each. if you share a taxi you may even be paying less if you are not going too far.

Rendez-vous manqué pour nous qui avons joué de malchance et dû renoncer à notre week-end... Téresa a cependant été très disponible et arrangeante... Une hôtesse adorable, merci pour tout
After staying several nights, I am very surprised as to why this apartment has received such high reviews. The apartment is ok. While it is decorated like the pictures on the listing, it looks nothing like this due to the lack of lighting.
The apartment itself is very very dark. There is only one light in the living room and two dim lamps in the bedroom. The bathrooms are well lit. I did stay here while the facade was under renovation, but I do not believe the scaffolding blocked much daylight from entering the apartment.
The location is both good and bad. The dark street the entrance is located on did not feel very welcoming. However, the location is very central to the main attractions. I was able to easily walk to the Picasso Museum, the beach, Las Ramblas, the marina, and La Sagrada Familia. The location also included a lot of street noise at night.
Overall, this apartment is ok. My expectations from the many great reviews and pictures far exceeded my perceptions of the apartment during my stay. With so many other attractive lodging options in Barcelona, I would not stay in this apartment again.
Teresa's apartment was wonderful to stay in during our trip to Barcelona. It was very comfortable and the location was really great. The neighborhood we stayed in was filled with all kinds of little artsy stores and delicious small restaurants. We loved it! We never got to meet Teresa but she was available to contact and recommended fabulous restaurants and things to do in Barcelona. We would stay here again!
Great little flat in an amazing location. We had a brilliant stay and loved exploring all the little bars and shops of the local area. You really are in the best location to explore the 'real' Barcelona as well as in easy reach of the main tourist attractions. We had a little problem accessing the flat but Teresa was very apologetic and very friendly.
Teresa reageerde altijd onmiddelijk op bericht van mij, dat gaf een prettig gevoel. Het appartament is zoals wordt geadverteerd. Een prettig tweekamer appartament in misschien wel de leukste buurt van Barcelona. Nauw trappenhuis, wat voor mij geen probleem was. Enige jammere was dat de gevel wordt opgeknapt en daardoor in plastic is ingepakt waardoor de twee balkons niet gebruikt konden worden en het een wat claustrofobisch gevoel gaf.
