Please, behave yourself as you would like your neighbours to behave. Don't be noisy especially at night.
Take care of the apartment, because it is located in a very old building and somebody else is coming right after you.
The location of the appartement is the major advantage. Besides, it contains all the necessary equipements such as washing machine, a/c, tv, fan and it is clean. Regarding the negative points, the shower is really small even for us coming from Paris where major appartements are specially small. The stairs are quite narrow but It's okay for a short stay, their inconvenient is that they are badlooking.
Alejo and Lida (the woman who gave us the keys) are very nice, friendly and flexible. Our flight had 1h delay but Lida waited kindly for us. Thanks for welcoming us!
Appartement where my sister and husband stayed.
It's a good Appartement but beware of the stairs!! Really hard to go up with heavy luggage. It's perfect if you don't mind the stairs.
Great flat located very close to major attractions and with easy access to Jaume I metro. VinaTecha (opposite) has a fantastic selection of wines and they even opened our bottle for us after we discovered the corkscrew had been left broken at the apartment. Alejo was kind, helpful and flexible, allowing us to check out later to make our plans easier. Given we only stayed for two days, it would have been nice to have a few necessities (such as toilet paper) supplied, but overall we were really happy. I would certainly recommend this place.
Our stay at Alejo's place was enjoyable. The location Is AWESOME, across the street from a wine shop and very close to La Rambla and many restaurants and shopping. The room was very dark so we were able to enjoy our vacation and sleep in a bit. The balcony allowed us to enjoy fresh air all the time.
Our 2 downsides to this apartment were a) the shower was incredibly small, b) it's up three flights of stairs and the staircase is steep and narrow.
Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay very much!
We didn't meet Alejo personally but he was reachable online and was very helpful. Born district is wonderful and the flat is centrally located so it was lovely. The staircase is almost impossibly narrow and in quite a bad shape. The bathroom is really the smallest I have ever seen and the bedroom has no window, but the flat is otherwise nice, comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed our stay!
Great apartment in a vibrant neighborhood. Alejo communicated in a timely manner and met us at the apartment on time and with a smile. Comfortable apartment. Spacious for 2, reasonable for 3, cozy for 4. Tiny shower, Spacious open kitchen Keith good layout for group cooking and dining. Alejo was a gracious host. Space was clean and well maintained. Would recommend to others for sure
I stayed in the apartment for over a month and loved it. It really is the perfect location. I could run to the beach in ten minutes and the El Born neighborhood is by far my favorite in Barcelona. It is quiet at night. The bedroom is away from the street so I never heard anything.
Alejo was quick to respond to any issues I had. The apartment is a big as you need.
About the Host, Alejo
Hola, me llamo Alejo. Vivo en Barcelona, donde tengo un apartamento perfecto para 2 personas, en la mejor área de la ciudad - El Born -, por sus calles peatonales por donde pasear y descubrir la Barcelona antigua, por sus restaurantes donde cenar con una copa de buen vino, y desde donde se puede ir andando a los principales lugares de interés de la ciudad.
Me encanta viajar, aunque ahora que tengo hijos, viajo menos.
Haré lo posible para que tu estancia en Barcelona sea muy agradable.
