It was a lovely apartment, great location and spacious. The decor is great and we really enjoyed staying there.
The apartment is perfect for a couple, the second bedroom is an internal room that cannot be closed off.
There are two roof terraces that are lovely for drinks and coffee. I would stay again
A great apartment in a great area, surrounded by great restaurants, bars and boutique shops
We did not meet Ricard but met Raquel instead, she was very helpful and told is about the area
Las fotos se corresponden más o menos con la realidad, y el piso está muy bien localizado y decorado.
Sin embargo el piso tenia una falta de limpieza y mantenimiento enorme. Encontramos pelos en sábanas y toallas, la persiana del baño y la tapa del inodoro rotas, ventana sin persiana ni cortina para la luz en la habitación, y ni siquiera se había barrido, y ya no digamos fregado en días.
Hablamos con la propietaria y quieren poner remedio a ésto, pero nosotros nos lo encontramos así. Es una pena porque el apartamento está muy bien decorado y sería muy agradable si estuviera limpio y arreglado.
wunderful and artistic apartment full of industrial chic and charme! we loved our stay at ricards and discoverd the beauty of the island and beaches with a scooter. everything you need is in the apartment, perfect stay for a couple. romantic terrasse outside and charming bed. we noticed that it was a bit filthy and dusty, especially the cooking and eating utensils. the communication with ricard was a bit tired and slow but the apartment took all our irritation. over all we had a great time and stay at ricards and recommend it to everyone.
Our 2 weeks stay was very dissapointing. The house has got lots of potential, the owners have got good taste, but the house is completely neglected. The communication was very bad; we had to wait 2 hours jn front of the house because the (very unfriendly) housekeeper refused to bring the key. A call to the owner (Raquel) didn't bring much, she said she couldn't do anything from Barcelona. The house was dirty, the gasbottle was finished (later replaced by helpful friends), no sun umbrella (there was a standard for it), no water boiler, not possible to close kitchendoor (handle/lock broken, so anybody could walk in (including very crazy unfriendly nabour), the lights were some naked bulbs (not very cosy), very little kitchen equipment (we bought some ourselves). On the foto's it shows a nice terrace with sunbed, but in reality sunbed is not there. The house does not have 2 bedrooms, but 1 as the second "room" is a storage room without windows. The terrace is completely neglected and not at all like in the photo. All together though we had a good stay, as Ciutadella is very nice, Menorcans are very friendly, lovely food and good place to ride bicycle. It's a pity that such a nice house is neglected.
The apartment was really nice and exactly as expected. The area is perfect to explore the city. You can do most in walking distance. Everything was very clean and nicely prepared. The room with the toilet is super tiny, so you cant really close the door, but you get used to it... Overall, a really good experience, I would come again.
We had a wonderful stay at this spacious and individually furnished apartment, which has an artsy feel to it. Having been in BCN several times, El Born is still the perfect location for me. Don't be put off by the noise on weekends. I've experienced a lot worse in other parts of town and it was certainly not an issue for me. Raquel was very friendly and happily accommodated individual needs. I can only recommend this place.
I highly recommend this 3rd floor flat. My girlfriend and I wanted to move in immediately. Besides having all the creature comforts, the flat is decorated remarkably tastefully and artistically. The windows overlook the narrow and winding streets, but didn't feel as tho we were being intruded upon at night. While the flat is near some lively action, it is far enough away to keep most of the noise down (the Spanish are a vigorous people that enjoy life late into the evening). Location can not be improved upon. Our hostess, Raquel, was sweet and informative.
Raquel and Ricard have a beautiful lat. It is on a quiet lane, in the heart of El Borne, with quirky shops and bars near, but little noice in the night.
They have decorated the flat in a really simple, tasteful way, with lots of exposed walls, old shutters and interesting lights.
Around the flat are charming arts and crafts, and pictures by Raquel. It feels like a the home of an individual, and yet it felt like our home for four days.
Raquel provided excellent support. Meeting us with the key when we texted our approach, and seeing us off with a hug and a kiss.
Thanks Raquel, we will be back

Our stay in Barcelona was great. The flat and the good adress had a big effect on it.
Everything was as described. Thank you Raquel for the warm welcome and the uncomplicated check-in & out ;)
We will come back! lovely grettings...
