Empfehlenswert! Mit 6 Erwachsenen bestens gebettet, in der Nähe des Arc de Triomf. Gastgeber Marino stets hilfsbereit und unkompliziert. Tipp für alle kleinen Gruppen die untereinander gut klar kommen.

This is staying at a five star hotel, but better, because we loved our hosts that made us feel very welcome and spoiled us with treats from their exclusive cake shop La Tarta.
I/we would love to stay here again.
We had 4 fantastic days in Marino's apartment. The apartment is large and very comfortable, with everything we could need for a wonderful stay. We walked to all the main sites in Barcelona from the apartment, the metro was close by and we found our way around the city easily.
We were meet promptly and shown around the apartment, explained how things worked, given maps and ideas of thing to do and see.
Marino helped us get our tickets for Sagrada Familia when we were having no luck pre-purchasing them from Australia. A delicious welcome cake made by Marino's cafe was waiting for us in the refrigerator.
We could not have been looked after better. A wonderful welcome to Spain. I would highly recommend this apartment.
The apartment is amazing, in a great location and the hosts were lovely. Met at agreed time to show us round the apartment which has everything you need. Highly recommended. Thank you for a great trip!
We stay here for 5 days and it was great. Good service, nice room and a good location!!
Best Airbnb experience I have had thus far!! We were in awe the first day at how amazing the apartment was and how friendly and accomodating Marino and Marcella were.
I, along with six other college students, stayed at this apartment for four nights in March of 2014. Contact with Marino beforehand was easy and finding the apartment was too. Our group arrived earlier than expected and we were allowed to leave our luggage at the apartment while we strolled around the neighborhood and got lunch. Marcella spent some time with us describing the neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods, providing us with some great restaurant and bar recommendations nearby. Make sure you do not lose this map! It was very helpful (and surprisingly in-depth) for a group of newcomers.
When we first walked into the apartment, we were shocked. The whole apartment has a really cool feel to it; sort of modern and artsy with a really unique design. The apartment was very clean and stocked with silverware and dishes and soaps and detergents that you might need during the stay. They even provided about ten large water jugs, which ended up being pretty important for a group of college kids.
The location is amazing, tucked away in this really cool neighborhood called El Born. By the end of the trip we knew the area pretty well and felt almost like locals, or at least less like typical tourists. There are great little bars, restaurants, and shops all around. The amenities were fantastic; comfy beds, towels and robes provided, silverware and glasses (even champagne flutes) provided, washer and dryer, the list goes on and on. And to top everything off, Marino provided breakfast and coffee for each guest every morning if we chose to eat. I feel like I'm leaving so much out, but bottom-line, this Airbnb was amazing. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to Barcelona.
Nous avons eu droit à un accueil superbe!
Marino est extraordinaire!
Concernant le logement, il est de grand standing!
Un ensemble d'éléments contemporain qui font de cet appartement un bijou qui mérite d'être publié dans les magazines de design d'intérieur!
Le quartier est parfait, festif, et mettant en évidence toute la richesse de Barcelone!
Nous vous le conseillons vivement !
Merci encore Marino R.
This place is AMAZING! So much character, lovely vibe, smart kitchen & bathroom and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We took our 2 year old boy, and he also loved everything about it, lots of room to play and run around. It has 4 lovely double beds, and a huge sofa - but would recommend only staying with family or friends you are very comfortable with as it's fairly open plan.
Marino was a perfect host, bringing us a delicious breakfast each day, and a delicious Sacher Torte from his bakery on our arrival. There are CDs, guide books, art books, piano, electric guitar, wi-fi, chess board... the list goes on. Can't recommend highly enough.
Estaremos de vuelta!
Gracias Marino, tuvimos una estancia maravillosa.
My wife and I stayed with Marino and Marcella for three nights in January 2014, during a weekend break to one of our favourite European cities.
The whole experience was extremely pleasant and positive, from a warm and quick reply to our original enquiry, through regular correspondence as our arrival time approached, to a very warm and friendly welcome in their cake shop, "LaTarta" located on the same street as the apartment. We were taken to the apartment (45 seconds walk), and shown how everything works, and left with a fantastic welcome gift (we won't spoil the surprise by saying what it was!)
Both Marino and Marcella were always available for a chat or if we had any questions. We are quite self-sufficient so I don't think we over-used their helpfulness, but we are sure first-time visitors will get all the answers they need, and more.
The apartment is fantastic - great design, much of it hand-made by Marino, and every possible convenience has been provided for. We could write for many pages about the apartment but it really is first-class. Particularly great for us was the double-double bed - all together about 3.5 metres wide! :)
Two main points to note, which have been covered by some previous reviewers:
1. The apartment is much darker than the photos show, as there is almost no natural daylight coming from outside. The importance of this really depends on your preferences - we were on the streets the whole day and this didn't bother us at all. However, if sunlight in the apartment is important to you, you may want to look at other properties.
2. The apartment is on the ground floor, so the street (Portal Nou) is about 15 metres from your bed. Is it loud? The best answer is probably: 'it depends'. At the weekend, nowhere in a city like Barcelona is quiet - all you need is for one loud group of party-goers to pass your front door, and you may hear them. On the other hand, on Saturday and Sunday nights we slept perfectly. If you are a very light sleeper, it is probably best to take ear plugs just in case...
Despite the above, we had a great time and are very, very happy to recommend Marino and Marcella to other guests. They are fantastic hosts and you will not regret staying with them :)

Marino and his Wife are top of the line Airbnb'ers.
They are super responsive, very helpful and friendly nice people who love what they do.
The apartment is designed, very cool and has all the most modern things you need and when you step out, you are minutes away from the Chocolat Museum, Born, Arch de Triumph and all the other sites.
And they have a great place to have amazing chocolate cake and breakfast too!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
