The Space

HUGE APARTMENT WITH GREAT VIEWS. BORN DISTRIC

The apartment is located in the heart of old city centre, just in-between the Gothic, Born and the Barceloneta neighbourhoods. You are a stones throw away from Santa Maria del Mar cathedral, Ciutadella park, Picasso museum and some of the best restaurants and bars the city has to offer. You are also a 10-minute walk distance from the beach – fantastic for your summer vacation.
The apartment has 120 square meters and can accommodate easily and comfortably up to 6 people. It disposes of three double bedrooms, two of them very large, a balcony, a big bathroom with a shower, a huge kitchen fully equipped, another small wc, a living room, a separate dining area and a small interior patio with a washing room. It has its charming Barcelonan air with typical flooring from the 19th century as well as high ceilings. It is ideal for families, a group of friends or couples alike.

In the Kitchen you will find of everything you need to cook your way through vacation. In the closet you will find fresh and clean towels and linens. The apartment also includes Internet Wi FI and a Washing machine

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. In the same building premises you will find two of the most mythical culinary institutions of the city – “La Xampañería”, a famous street food joint, and “Set Portes”, a high end local cuisine restaurant– look them up in your guides!

Being a local, i can provide you with some great tips on how to get around and where to dine and drink. Please don't hesitate to contact me for further information.

Hope to see you soon!

  • The apartment is very well located and central to the old city areas and beaches. The apartment is very large and functional with kitchen and a bathroom and additional toilet, so great for our group of 6. Very clean linen towels etc. Comfy beds too!
    The owner and manager provided excellent communication, before our trip and on arrival, even extending to a few recommendations on places to eat etc..there were only two minor downsides;
    1 the sewage smell - which may be temporary due to the road works out front
    2 - no real living room or TV for "down time" - this won't apply to everyone but for us (a family with 4 children) it could have been better.

    We had a great 5 days.
    Thankyou so much we loved Barcelona.

  • Me and my friends spent a lovely three days in Aitor's place for the Primavera Sound festival and we had the time of our lives, Aitor's place played a good role in it. The flat is hudge, the location is perfect: right next to the Barceloneta metro station, two steps from the nicest neighbours in Barcelona as the Born and the Gothic. Aitor and Lorran were so kind to us and let us leave our luggage right when we landed and give us the key of the flat for coming back after lunch. They provided the house with everything we needed and were available for every question we had during our stay. The flat is as beautiful as you can see in the pictures and the vibe is pure Barcelona. We simply loved it. We will for sure come back in Aitor's place next time we'll be in Barca.

  • We had a great time staying at Aitor's apartment. It is clean, large, light and airy and perfect for a group of friends. Aitor was totally amenable to our complicated and ever-changing plans, he also added an extra bed for us for a last minute extra member of our group without any extra charge.

    The shower is hot and powerful, though there wasn't always quite enough hot water for all 6 of us to shower in the morning. So you do need to stagger this, but if you are late risers like ourselves it isn't a problem.

    The balcony with table and chairs has great views of the city, and you feel like you are right in the heart of Barcelona. The location is fantastic for walking around the cool El Born district and the beaches surrounding Barceloneta. It's also only a 5 minute walk from Barcelona Franca station, where you can take a train straight to the lovely beaches of Sitges.

    I would definitely recommend Aitor's apartment for your stay in Barcelona.

  • The communication was really friendly, the handing over of the room was quick and easy. The appartment was indeed huge and very central. Not much furniture to use but just enough.

  • Aitor, the owner, was responsive and friendly. Staying in the apartment however, was a mixed experience, especially in comparison to the other places we rented through airbnb.
    Pluses: Great location. Airy and spacious. Balcony with small table and 2 chairs. Great dining room. Bathroom and for the most part, kitchen fully operational/functional.
    Negatives: Sewage smell upon entering the building and up the stairs. Maybe a temporary consideration as the neighboring street was under construction. The apartment was barely and minimally furnished. One mattress placed on wooden shipping pallet. Some shelving made from wooden boxes. Only 1 cup with a handle and incomplete dishes etc. for an apartment that sleeps 6. No disappointments for college kids but for some travelers there might be shared disappointment, easily remedied if Aitor chooses to invest a relatively small additional sum which would turn this into a sensational, five-star rental.

  • L'appartement est parfaitement situé et (website hidden) correspond parfaitement à la description faite sur airbnb. Nous avons eu un excellent séjour à bcn!

  • We could not have asked for a better location! everything we wanted to do and see was within walking distance. Aitor was extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and was also flexible to our arrival schedule. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Квартира расположена в историческом доме и очень удачно относительно культурно-развлекательных зон. Единственное что может расстроить, это шум от дороги, который и днем и ночью достаточно активен. Нам повезло и мы попали на праздничное шествие, которое проходило на бульваре внизу, и у нас, можно сказать, были "билеты в первый ряд". Внутри квартира аутентична, кафельный пол, высоченный потолок, а размер самой квартиры почти как "футбольное поле", но все поделено на мелкие комнаты, не хватает общей зоны отдыха с телевизором. Три небольшие двуспальные кровати и диван в прихожей, который не раскладывается; нас было шестеро, кому то пришлось спать на диване в прихожей, приемлемо, но на любителя. Эта квартира больше подойдет молодым людям, которые не ищут особого комфорта, и больше охотятся за впечатлениями.
