The Neighborhood

El Borne is a unique neighborhood. The winding cobbled streets flowed smoothly and we delve into the medieval structures around you wherever you are in the district. Plants and flowers fall from the small balconies. You can spend a perfect day just wandering around El Born, lost in its streets, visiting museums, going into the vintage clothing stores and trying out any of the tapas bars.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The flat was not so clean during our stay. Cleaning of laundry and bathroom was really not satisfying. We spent just 2 nights, so it's ok, we're young and so on....but when you pay the price you want something in return, and this was surely our worst flat that we choose on Airbnb. The full material of the house are first-price chosen, including doors, windows and kitchen stuff. It's a pity cause the position is very central , everything is there, i love this district and i was there 6 times....but I always thought that cleaning is first. And here, was not clean. With some little improvements this can be a very good flat to stay in Barcelona.

  • Pablo was great. He was very friendly and met us personally upon arrival. He was helpful over the course of the trip, always answered promptly to questions about the area and provided useful suggestions. The flat itself was in a great location - it was very easy to travel to the main tourist attractions and there were lovely places to eat and shop in the local vicinity. The flat comfortably fitted the 4 of us, but the bathroom was a little small for us. We had a great time and the flat was very convenient for a short trip!

  • Pablo was very welcoming and patient as we were two hours late for our check in due to taxi strikes in Barcelona when we arrived.
    The apartment is exactly like the pictures and description. It is a very cosy house!
    5 of us stayed in the apartment for a week very comfortably.
    The area of El Borne is amazing. It is only a 5/10 minute walk to La Ramblas. The neighbourhood is gorgeous, full of lovely restaurants and bars.
    Looking out the bedroom window at the Cathedral every morning is a sight not to be missed from Cosy House.
    Pablo was always contactable and even gave us loads of advice on where to head out for food or drinks. The apartment was well equipped for cooking although we ate out a lot as the restaurants were so good.
    I will definitely be back to BCN soon and it is Cozy House where I will stay!
    Thank you Pablo, see you soon :)

  • We loved the flat, which was cosy and looked out over a buzzing square in the beautiful, lively El Born area - perfect location! Pablo was great, he gave helpful tips about where to go out and was a very friendly host.

  • Pablo was most helpful, friendly and very accomodating to our requests. He was also a good source of local information. We had a nice chat and shared stories over tea.

    The location of the apartment can't be better. It is at the center of the old part of town, 100 m away from Picasso Museum, and close to Metro and Renfe stations, and walkable from the beach. The space was sufficient to our need, with two bedrooms and a kitchen/living room. And the wi-fi connection was excellent.

    However, these don't change the fact that the apartment was dirty and badly in need of repair. Parts of the kitchen floor were peeled off. A nail sticking out of the bathroom door, which was quite dangerous. The bathroom door scratched the floor when being closed. Bathroom was smelly. Water from the shower didn't drain properly. The balcony windows at one of the bedrooms didn't close. The sofa was broken and its cover was dirty. And the kitchen: I have never seen a kitchen counter and kitchen utensils that dirty since my student dorm days!

    We didn't complain because the location was perfect and we were too tired to find another hotel nearby. But we should have.

    In short, the apartment was not ready for sale. I don't think it should be listed on airbnb until it is properly renovated, new sofa is provided, and professionally cleaned.

  • Our stay in Pablo's apartment was great. The location is perfect - soooo close to beautiful churches, picasso museum, modern art museum, the beach, and more. We could walk to most of the best sites to see. Neighborhood was marvelous with lots of wonderful places to eat and people watch. would recommend to anyone wanting a more cultural experience than hotel stays.

  • The flat was wonderful. The location is right in the middle of the Born district giving easy walking access to local sights. The flat was cosy, rustic and in a building of historical significance. Pablo was a wonderful host giving us invaluable advice on the local restaurants and shows. He even delivered a bottle of champagne to me when he discovered my birthday fell during our stay. It can be a little noisy in the street at night but this only added to our experience. Highly recommend this listing.

  • La posizione della casa è eccezionale, sei a due passi da tutto ed in una zona tranquillissima anche se si viagga con bambini, lo zoo ed il parco sono a 5 minuti, il supermercato è a 10 metri, cena nella piazza bellissima.
    La pulizia invece non mi è proprio piaciuta, locale molto sporco, letti rifatti alla buona, bagno angusto con una piccola vetrata senza tenda che dà internamente verso gli altri appartamenti ed una presa elettrica con cavi totalmente scoperti a rischio scossa elettrica. Credo e spero fosse dovuto ad un check-out troppo vicino al nostro check-in e pertanto la tempistica della pulizia non è stata possibile, visti e considerati gli altri commenti positivi.
    Pablo comunque è sempre disponibilissimo per qualunque informazione

  • Pablo was a great host! Recommended without no doubts. A spacious flat, very organized and clean. The flat is located in a good place, the born has a lot of options for someone who wants to go out and enjoy the city. Next to diverse facilities, supermarket, banks, pharmacy. The metro is in a walkable distance, easy acess. One of the rooms is a little noiser than the other, but was not a big problem for us.
