  • Jessica (email hidden)! She greeted me at the flat and showed me around. She is very caring, amiable, and friendly! Both the check-in and check-out processes went very smoothly.

    The flat is perfect! It is very clean, spacious, comfortable, and has everything you need for both a long-term and short-term stay! The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is clean and has everything you need for cooking if you are up for it. The bathroom is spacious too, and the water pressure is great. Also, you never run out of hot water which is great! WiFi worked perfectly, without any problems during my 5-weeks stay.

    The location cannot be better! It is in the heart of the old town - in Born. Stores, bars, restaurants, pharmacy, anything you need is in walking distant. And it is just a joy to walk out of the flat at Placa Sant Agusti Vell. Both Metro Arc de Triomf and Jaume are in 5 minute walking distance.

    There is no question I would come back to this flat when I am back to the magic city of Barcelona!

  • Everything good that was said about this apartment is true. It’s simple, clean, cozy and has all you need for a short stay. And if it’s not your first time in Barcelona, you’ll appreciate only two flights of stairs (especially if you have a heavy luggage). And the owner, Jessica, is a super nice host. At the time of our stay she wasn’t in the city but managed to organize our check-in and check-out at the time most convenient for us. And since it was winter she provided us with a new heater which helped a lot.

    Have in mind that there a lot of pickpockets (tontos) in Barcelona. The apartment’s building is at the little square that is a crossroads for five different streets which (email hidden) for them to flee. They sprayed our backs with a paint in order to make us clean it and put our bags down (to steal them of course). Which, I have to admit, was pretty inventive and well conducted. But Jessica’s sister who helped us with check-in detected them instantly and our things were safe. It’s not a thing to happen often but be attentive while you enjoy this beautiful place.

  • Jessica (email hidden), flexible and to the point.

    The flat is right smack in the middle of Born, and that makes life easy and fun.

    It's an old building, but the space is newly renovated. It is simple, with kitchen and fast internet. I personally didn't need or want more.

    *For the winter trippers, there is not a heater, but I am sure Jessica brings in a portable which is common procedure.

  • Это чудесные апартаменты! Они находятся в красивейшем районе города, где каждый уголок является исторической ценностью. В пяти минутах ходьбы раскинулся божественный парк Parc de la Ciutadella, он прекрасно подходит для утренних пробежек, вечерних прогулок и пикников для всей семьи. Довольно близко расположен пляж ciutadella-vila olimpica, но мне больше понравился пляж bogatell, до него было удобно добираться на автобусе. Все виды транспорта были в шаговой доступности от апартаментов, это было незаменимо для моей дочери, которая этим летом училась в языковой школе и ежедневно пользовалась метро. Если говорить о транспортной системе города Барселона, то это самый отлаженный механизм, даже ночью вам удастся добраться до любой точки города на ночном автобусе, а в выходные на метро, так как оно работает круглосуточно. Не могу не отметить, то, что вокруг все улицы усыпаны небольшими барами и кафе, где можно приятно провести вечер за разговорами.
    В интерьере квартиры нет ничего лишнего, прекрасно оборудованная кухня дает возможность готовить вкуснейшие блюда. Очень комфортная кровать и вообще планировка квартиры очень удачная. Не маловажная деталь – наличие стиральной машины. Это прекрасное место для обитания путешественника! WIFI был прекрасным помощником для учебы и поиска интересующей нас информации. Для меня было удивительно обнаружить, что окна не выходят на улицу, но это считается нормой в Испании, в отличие от России. Что касается соседей, мы их практически не замечали и все жители дома показались нам дружелюбными и приветливыми.
    Jessica - легендарный хозяин, она очень дружелюбная, и готовая прийти на помощь в любую минуту. Её преимущества: знание нескольких языков и открытость! Она не была навязчивой, мы чувствовали себя, как дома у неё в гостях! Как только поеду в следующий раз в Барселону обязательно постараюсь снять эту же квартиру!
    Спасибо Jessica, Спасибо Airbnb!

  • The location of the apartment is convenient to plaza cantalunya and quite some scenic spots nearby. However, the stay was not an enjoyable one due to the smell of the sheets , the overall cleanliness of the apt and the small bed. Me and my friend are both around 120 pounds or so. The bed was kind of small for us. The sofa was not a bed. So we had to share the bed. My travel partner even took out a sheet she carried with her if she travels to remote area. If you can find a three star hotel with comparable price. Definitely go with hotel.

  • Jessica was as amazing as the apartment. Very helpful, kind and understanding.the apartment is located in one the nicest areas. Its well connected and central. We hope to rent the same apartment every time we are in Barcelona.

  • The apartment is very nicely located. It is near the city center, but the immediate vicinity doesn't have the same catering to tourists feel of areas closer to La Rambla. There are a good selection of excellent restaurants within a 2 minute walk, as well as a number of good neighborhood bars.

    The apartment itself is very utilitarian, meaning Ikea versions of most furnishings/kitchenware are available. There is little natural light, which wasn't a huge problem given that we were out and about most of the time.

    Jessica is very responsive and (email hidden). I'd recommend this place for anyone looking for a clean, well located, simple lace to stay in Barcelona.

  • We enjoyed our stay in Jessica's flat. The location was central and perfect as a base to explore the city. Jessica was easy to reach when needed. Kitchen and bathroom were fully functional and modern. We enjoyed cooking our own breakfast before heading out each day. There are only 2 flights of stairs up to the flat so it was never too daunting after a long day.
    The only issue was the noise of construction in the building next door. I definitely recommend checking with Jessica about construction before visiting, especially if you intend to be home during the day for siestas!
    *also note the washing machine doesn't work but there is a laundromat right near by. There is a clothesline and pins at the flat as well if you prefer to hand-wash.
    Overall great experience and awesome location. gracias Jessica!

  • Had a lovely stay at this apartment in Barcelona, enjoyed getting lost in the beautiful streets of Born & Gothic Quarter. We stayed for almost a week and found the apartment very comfortable.

    Only things we didn't have with us that would have helped were; Matches for the stove to make a tea/coffee (no kettle) & a hair dryer.

    Heater was provided and made the apartment lovely and warm. Apartment was very quite and didn't hear anything from outside. Occasional neighbour noise, but that's standard :)

    Bed was quite comfortable, however isn't a top-end mattress :: basic foam style - this info may help for anyone with back problems :)

    All in all, great location and lovely stay. Jessica is extremely hospitable, friendly and very helpful. Loved it, can't wait to get back to Catalonia ASAP!!

    Xx

  • We have been more than happy to stay in this lovely apartment for a whole week. Great, great neighborhood in the middle of the charming Born, with both cozy restaurants and bars. Close to everything you need. The apartment is nice and clean and seems new. Lots of space with a great bathroom and a nice kitchen. Placa Catalunya is only a 10 min. walk and if you want to go to La Rambla it's an additional couple of minutes.
