Creative couple originally from the UK but living in Barcelona since 2010. We are architects and product designers and love to show people around this inspiring city.
We just returned home from a wonderful week in Barcelona. This apartment, hosted by Sara and Chris, was one of the main reasons we had such a great time. The apartment has a great location in the trendy Born district, close to the action yet facing a quieter street on the bedroom side so you don't get as much noise. It is just perfect for a couple. The bed is larger than most you find in Europe and very comfy. Sara was a wonderful host and was there for our every need. The unit felt very safe as well since it's located in a private, locked building and has its own elevator. I would highly recommend this apartment and I would rent again on my next trip to Spain! Thank you!
Vert sexy apartment, right in the heart of town. The location is perfect, with funky Born beside you, and the beaches of Barceloneta a short walk away. The apartment is large, taking the whole floor of the building and is beautifully laid out. Sun streams through the windows at the front to greet you in the morning but equally, you can hide away in the fabulous bedroom to the rear if you have been out a little late. Which you will be. This is Barcelona.
Great bathroom with rain shower. Well fitted kitchen, but as my lovely host pointed out, "you don't come here to cook!"
Your only problem might be that you won't want to leave.
All in all, you could not find a better place to stay in Barcelona.
El apartamento es pequeño pero muy bonito, limpio y con todo lo necesario para una estadía fantástica. Muy bien ubicado.
Sara y Chris muy simpáticos y me han hecho sentir como en casa.
The apartment was very central in a great location near many delicious and authentic Catalan restaurants. Sara was very accommodating with check in as we were two hours late (sorry Sara!). She provided us with a detailed list of recommended restaurants, bars, attractions which we tried out. Her list is very accurate and the restaurants were all delicious! Sara responded to our needs very quickly and was easily reached by email. The best part of the apartment was the washing machine which was very helpful!
Thank you very much! Everything was amazing!
The flat is clean, had everything I needed.
Sara was an amazing host. She warmly welcomed us at our arrival, showed the appartment and terrace and gave us some helpful advice. The appartment itself is really tiny (what shouldn’t be a big problem if you want to spend whole days outside), but also very functionnal and equipped with everything you need: a folding table, cooker, washing machine, fridge, dishes, cutlery and so on. Sara provided us with towels and hair-dryer; in the small bathroom with funny toilet we found all necessary cosmetics like shower gel, shampoo and body lotion. Also, such basic food products as olive oil, coffee, salt, pepper and rice were provided; a bottle of spanish red wine was waiting for us the day of our arrival. The biggest advantage of the appartment is its location - the El Born district is simply amazing, full of small squares and lovely cafes. What's more, it's close to the underground (which you can do without), the beach (15 min walk to Barceloneta), harbour and Barri Gotic and La Rambla. You can find a beautiful park across the street, perfect for jogging or lunch. There's a second door leading to the roof with a terrace where you can admire stunning views on the city. It's worth getting up to watch the sunset. The only disadvantage was that during the day, the appartment warmed up really bad and in the evenings it was hot - we managed by opening the windows and turning on the windmill. By the second or third day, sleeping was much easier.
We can strongly recommend Sara's and Chris's appartment for a longer or shorter stay - we spent there 10 days and we don't regret it!
Thank you Sara and Chris! Best regards from Poland! Karolina and Karol.
Couldn't recommend this more! Sara was a wonderful host, there to meet me when I arrived and super relaxed showing me the apartment. The apartment is really central - we walked everywhere.
The apartment is small but is clean and has everything you need. The massive terrace totally makes up for it and has spectacular views, we spent both evenings sat watching the a sunset before heading out.
I will definitely be returning.
Sarah was a warm and welcoming host, gave us all the information we required and responded quickly to our requests. The apartment is small, spotless and was perfect for our short stay. There is a lovely large terrace with views over BNC and the park opposite if you have time to chill. The El born district is very cool and atmospheric. We spent most of our time wandering the winding alleyways that are such an alluring part of the buzz of BNC. I would definitely recommend Sara's little rooftop place, the lovely old elevator made our tired little wandering feet very happy too. Thanks Sara.
Sara is a very nice host. From the beginning, she answered us fast, and gave us the needed information about, how to arrive to the apartment. Regarding the apartment, it was absolutely amazing. It is as small as described, but very charming, and it contains all the things you need for a longer stay. Also the view from the rooftop terrace is beautiful, which we enjoyed a lot. The Neighborhood is very nice, with a lot of bars, restaurants and local shops. We would definitely recommend this apartment to everyone else!
Sara was an amazing host. She met us upon arrival and gave us a quick tour of the place.
My wife and I loved the cute little apartment. We stayed for 8 days and it certainly has everything you need and more. The location was perfect - El Born is great if it is your first time in Barcelona (as it was ours).
Sara went beyond the call of duty by lending us beach stuff.
