The Space

This superbly located, spacious apartment offers everything you need

Situated within the old city center in the beautiful and lively Born neighborhood, this flat will allow you to simply walk everywhere. This centric location is just down the street from the Picasso museum, a stone’s throw away from the Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral, a waking distance to the beach and just around the corner from the Ciutadella park with the city’s zoo.

The apartment includes one large bedroom, a living room with a double couch bed, full-equipped kitchen and bathroom and three lovely typical Catalan Balconies - all decorated with a an authentic Barcelonian air.

Could accommodate easily and comfortably 4 people, and suites for couples, families or a group of friends.

The building premises is fully renovated and includes a lift (no carrying your heavy luggage up a dark staircase) and a secure room for bicycle.

Kitchen disposes of everything you need to cook your way through vacation and includes an oven, stoves and a microwave. In the closet you will find fresh and clean towels and linens.

> Internet Wi FI

Just around the corner you will find some of the best restaurant and bars the city has to offer as well as supermarkets, local galleries and design shops.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This (email hidden) to stay in Barcelona, right in the old city and easy walking distance to the local sights, beach and loads of great bars and restaurants. Also really close to the metro for the rest of the city. Jonathan and his manager were brilliant giving us loads of information and were flexible when our flight was delayed arriving.

    The apartment was totally clean and comfortable and just as shown in the pictures, would absolutely recommend this as a place to stay in Barcelona.

  • The perfect place to stay if you want to experience Born and Barcelona. Great location, spotless and beautiful apartment. Jonathan was very helpful and met us when we arrived to the city and also gave us some great advice as where to eat (don't miss Bar del Pla next door!) We would love to stay here again next time we come to Barcelona.

  • Dear Jonathan,
    we had a great time in Barcelone and we really feal like "at home" in your nice and clean flat. It is in the old City, so just in a few minutes we could reach a lot of highlights of Barcelona by foot and when we were tired we could have an short break and start again in the evening.
    So thank you a lot for the Appartement. I think we will come back - at least in 12 years when the Sagrada Familia is ready :-)

  • This apartment is in a great location for exploring Barcelona. We loved staying in the Born district and walking the streets, sampling the restaurants, and shopping. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and Jonathon (email hidden). He was always available whenever we contacted him prior to our arrival and while we were there. I would definitely stay here again when I return to Barcelona.

  • A very nice, comfortable place located very conveniently for seeing the sights of Barcelona. Spacious, clean and comfortable, as well as being tastefully decorated. The only problem we encountered is that the hot water runs out very quickly - by the end of two back-to-back showers, the water was running pretty chilly.

    The location is very central, almost immediately next to the Picasso Museum and within walking distance to many attractions, and there are lots of tapas bars and other restaurants right nearby. The only downside of this is that there can be some street noise at night, which wasn't really a problem for us but might be tricky if you are a light sleeper.

    We had a great stay here and would recommend it!

  • Great location! The apartment was perfect for us: clean, bright, airy, and central for everything we wanted to do. We had a wonderful time and would happily stay there again next time we are in town.

  • Jonathan's apartment is in the absolutely most charming area of the town. It is as beautiful as shown in the pictures and it was very clean there. We had a good sleep because the bed was comfortable and it was quiet at night. We also loved having good Wifi connection and a convenient elevator.
    Jonathan is a very reliable and helpful host. We highly recommend this apartment.

  • Jonathan's apartment was all that we needed for our Barcelona trip. It was clean and tidied, in the middle of the Born district. Shop, restaurants, markets and supermarkets were just around the corner. Communication as well as handing over the key went smoothly. Jonathan was helpful and gave us a lot of advice on where to go for various things. The metro station Jaume I is only a few minutes away and airport buses arrive in Plaza Catalunya which is about 15 minutes walk from the apartment.

  • This apartment was absolutely perfect! My husband and I stayed there a few nights during our honeymoon and we felt very lucky to have found Jonathan's apartment. It is a one bedroom fit for 2-3 people. Great historic charm with the exposed brick and the balconies looking down at the cobble-stoned streets. The location simply can't be beat; we were able to walk everywhere including The Picasso Museum, several restaurants, the beach, flamenco shows, and a variety of bars. Given that this apartment is in the heart of everything, we were still able to sleep at night, as the windows are thick and do a great job of drowning out the sounds. We were able to do a couple loads of laundry and used the drying rack off the balcony. The kitchen is fully stalked with all the needed supplies, there's free wifi, cable tv, and the bed was comfortable and Jonathan had plenty of extra sheets and towels in case we needed them. As for Jonathan, he (email hidden). He was always available by phone and email and he met us to give us the keys at check-in, then let us have our privacy for the remainder of our stay. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Barcelona!

  • We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. The place is really comfortable and cosy. The location is perfect and El Born such a lovely area to stay.
    We stayed here with our two girls (8 and 6 years old) and it was very nice that we could crash for a short siesta, make our own coffee in the morning in the kitchen and sometimes diner at night when the girls were tired.
    We really would recommend this place. It shows that Jonathan takes good care of the apartment. He also responds very quickly to e-mail messages if we had any questions.
    If you're sensible to noise you might want to bring earplugs for the nights. I used them, but the rest of our family didn't and slept all very well.
