I arrived earlier and it was nice to have been allowed to leave my luggage while the apartment cleaning went on. The location was safe and lots of amenities and restaurant around.
The apartment was clean and the utensils were clean though we ate out all the time. There was constant hot water and that was important especially after a long day of being out. The apartment can afford to be a little more lit up as it was quite dark in some areas.
However, the drawback is 52 steps of winding staircase which was only as broad as my luggage. It was good exercise but if you travel with your backpack..it is fine. Not so if you are lugging a heavy suitcase behind you.
So if you are as old as the number of steps on the staircase and you are the hiking sort, this place is fine especially after a day of wine and rich food.
We had a wonderful, long stay in this apartment. The location was perfect - walking distance to the beach and in a quite part of El Born. The apartment was even more spacious than we expected, and we enjoyed the fabulous shower and comfortable, big bed. Wifi was always dependable as well. Our stay was very comfortable. We very much enjoyed the decor. The building is old and has a lot of character, but the apartment has been fully renovated and tastefully decorated.
Mel and Michael were fabulous hosts! Michael met us for check-in, providing detail instructions on all of the appliances as well as recommendations on where to go in the area. Mel was also incredibly responsive and helpful throughout our stay.
We hope to return!
The location was excellent and the place was as described, very cosy. The girl who met us was very pleasant and helpful, even went and got a map for us and bought it back.
Hosts offer assistance on just about anything you can think of.
I would recommend this listing to anyone. But do remember it is on the 3rd floor with no lift, maybe not worth it for a 1 night stay.
Very pleasant stay. The apartment was perfect and exactly as described. Brilliant location right in the heart of Barcelona alongside the locals. The hosts helped at every stage, I recommend booking travel with Mel as it allows for a smooth journey. Overall a beautiful city and fab apartment! ☺️
My wife and I had a great stay in this centrally located flat in the gothic district. Michael met us at the flat before official check in to leave our luggage so we could explore the great city. He gave us several recommendations that were right on. Def recommend this unit.
The managers Michael and Mel were accessible at all times and helped us with planning what to do in Barcelona. Importantly they were able to help arrange a driver in the early hours of the morning to get to the airport. They responded quickly to any maintenance issues. The unit is situated up 3 flights of stairs which was Ok for us as they were good stairs. The lounge was big with 2 couches that were comfortable. The bed is 2 firm king size singles pushed together which provides plenty of room and one can move without disturbing the other sleeper. It was a short walk to the train and the various shops and market in the older part of town. We had a great time in Barcelona

Somos una pareja muy sociable y amable, nos encanta viajar y mezclarnos con los nativos de los lugares que visitamos, nos gusta el turismo en el cual podemos sentir y vivir de manera similar a la gente del lugar por lo que queremos que la gente que visita Barcelona pueda sentir lo mismo. Yo soy española y llevo viviendo en Barcelona desde que nací, mi marido Michael es latino pero llegó a esta bella ciudad hace más de 10 años y se enamoró de ella. Barcelona es especial. En estos momentos trabajamos full time gestionando alquileres de corta estancia en esta ciudad y nos encanta lo que hacemos porque nos gusta atender a la gente y que esta pueda sentirse tan cómoda como en su casa Ir a los lugares que són comunes entre los vecinos del lugar puede convertir tu viaje en algo para recordar. Te podemos dar consejos y ayudar a encontrar y recomendar lugares preciosos o visitas inolvidables tanto en esta bella ciudad de Barcelona como en otros lugares de España en los que hemos estado!
También nos encanta la buena comida (Michael es todo un gourmet!) y la pasión de Mel es el arte y cuidado de las uñas.
We are a very sociable and friendly couple, we love to travel and meet new people, we like tourism in which we can feel and live much like the locals so we want that the people who visit Barcelona can feel the same. I'm spanish and i've been living in Barcelona since i was born, my husband Michael is latinamerican but he arrived to this beautiful city more than 10 years ago, and he felt in love with her! Barcelona is very special. We work full time managing short term rentals in this city and absolutely love what we do because we love to meet people and make them feel as comfortable as at their homes. Go where is common between local residents can make the difference and turn your trip in something to remember.
