Chic&Cozy apartment duplex at Born

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer dels Ases, Barcelona, Catalonia 08003, Spain

Coqueto y encantador dúplex, situado en el mítico barrio del Borne, junto a Santa Maria del Mar y a 300m. del puerto deportivo de Barcelona. Muy luminoso y tranquilo por estar en una calle peatonal, a tan solo unos minutos caminando de las principales atracciones turísticas, y perfectamente comunicado con todo tipo de transporte. Es el lugar ideal para disfrutar de la ciudad desde su mismo centro neurálgico.
Para estancias superiores a dos meses.
Todo está pensado en este apartamento para sentirse en un lugar acogedor, en una de las calles con más historia de Barcelona, que era el paso de carruajes a la “Catedral del Mar”.
Al entrar accedemos al salón comedor, muy luminoso gracias a sus ventanales de suelo a techo. En los momentos en los que sea conveniente algo más de intimidad y relax, podemos hacerlo gracias a cortinas de lino traslúcido, o a las contraventas correderas de madera, según nuestras necesidades. Cómodo sofá, mesita y taburetes decó para degustar almuerzos con vistas a la calle, televisión y equipo de música serán nuestros aliados perfectos tras una jornada descubriendo la ciudad para reponernos y disfrutar del plan del día siguiente.
Una pequeña ventana / pasaplatos nos conecta con la cocina, perfectamente equipada.
Un baño completo, totalmente blanco, dotado de ducha completan esta planta superior, de modo que podemos realizar toda nuestra actividad diurna en ella sin necesidad de bajar a la zona de descanso.
Por una original escalera colgante, de caracol, con cierto acento industrial, accedemos a la planta inferior, el dormitorio. Aquí se han conservado las maderas originales de la construcción, así como la típica bóveda catalana de techo. Amplio y luminoso, de inspiración oriental, dispone de un auténtico tatami japonés, concebido para le más reparador de los descansos. Las lámparas también proceden del país del sol naciente, y dan a la estancia ese carácter zen que tanto nos ayuda a empezar el día de la mejor manera.
Aquí encontraremos también amplios armarios, un aseo y una ducha muy original, que combina el cemento pulido con azulejos metalizados, cristal y la mas moderna grifería, pensada en un consumo racional y sostenible de los recursos y el mayor confort de sus usuarios.
Se trata de un apartamento situado en un TERCER PISO SIN ASCENSOR, como ocurre con todos los edificios antiguos de esta parte de la ciudad.

  • Great place, great neigbourhood, great host !!
    I arrived very late in the evening, but Virginia was so kind to wait for me at the apartment. She showed me around and I could call her whenever there would be a problem (but there weren't !)
    For sure I'm returning here whenever I go back to Barcelona !
    Conclusion: GO !!
    Don't hesitate, it's all you need for an enjoyable stay in Barcelona !
    Thank you Virginia and hope to see you soon !

  • Virginia was a fantastic host and her apartment is absolutely marvellous! My stay at her place was a total success. Having an injured foot, Virginia rushed from a doctor's appointment to meet me and give me the keys and explain everything I needed to know about the flat. She was also very understanding and flexible with the checkout time at the end of my stay which was extremely helpful.

    The flat itself is very comfortable, spotlessly clean and has a very unique layout with the comfortably sized bedroom and convenient bathroom downstairs as well as spacious living area and a well equipped kitchen plus an additional bathroom upstairs. The building also has a fabulous common area roof deck which is accessible. The location is really convenient as well, in the heart of Born, only 30 meters from the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar.

    Overall, a very, very pleasant experience! Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again!!!

    (Note that the flat is entered on the third level (no lift) and the steps down to the bedroom are a little bit steep. Neither was a problem for me at all and I only mention it in case it could be something of a concern for others...)

  • We had a wonderful stay in this apartment ! The location was perfect for us, there are bars and restaurants and shops all around. I liked the fact that it is a duplex, it conveys a sensation of quiet and intimity. Virginia was very nice, she welcomed us perfectly. And Barcelona is a wonderful city, I hope we will go back soon !

  • Chic & Cozy apartment was perfect!!! The pictures show the apartment exactly as it is. The space is set up well, extremely comfortable and clean. The location is perfect, directly in the heart of Born on a quiet pedestrian street. There are lots of good options for shopping and dining very close to the apartment. It is within walking distance to the beach, Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas and much more.

    Virginia was a gracious host and was accommodating to all requests. She even left a bottle of wine in the refrigerator upon arrival. Barcelona is an amazing city and staying at Virginia's place made my experience even better. I look forward to visiting and staying at Chic & Cozy again!!!

  • Apartment was at really central location. We loved the bedroom. It could be a little noisy at times but we didn't mind. And It looked a little bigger on the pictures. But the only thing you will do there, is sleep. So no problem there is as well. Virginia was a really lovely host. She was there to give us a warm welcome. And we could stay till 19:00. On check out day. Talk about things that do matter. We really appreciated that. So thank you Virginia. We definitely come back. Ciao Bart

  • Really the perfect place (!) to discover BCN. The appartment has all requirement which will be needed and we loved to stay there for nearly a week. We could start every activity by feed and also a bike rental is 50m near by. So enjoy your days en la capital de Catalunya. We did it :-)

    It was defenetly not the last time to visit BCN.
