Location, Location, Location!!!
This apartment is the perfect location. Right in the heart of el Born, my favorite part of Barcelona by far! At your door step, you have amazing food, cocktails and shopping. We walked to Barceloneta Beach a few days, to check out La Sagrada Familia and to Las Ramblas. We did not get in a vehicle for the 7 days we were in Barcelona and it was fabulous! The apartment itself was clean upon arrival and was the perfect home base with all of the necessities. We are already planning our trip back for September 2019 and plan to stay here again.
The El Born area was a perfect location! The apartment is difficult to find the first time if you are totally unfamiliar with Barcelona. The cab driver even had difficulty. The apartment itself is very nice, the entrance up a tight spiral staircase. Jennifer Sarah was great!
The apartment itself is nice enough. The pictures do it justice. We had a slightly tougher than usual experience checking in, as the keys for the apartment had been miss located and it took them a couple hours to find. Also, we were communicating with the owner via the Homeaway app, but then a different person called us a few days early to say she would be checking us in, and then yet another person was the actual person checking in. Little confusing.
More on the apartment: the main issue is the bathroom, specifically the shower. It was SUPER hard to figure out hot and cold, and it flooded the bathroom on our first attempt. It would have been nice to have a demonstration of how it worked when we arrived. Also, the stairs coming up to the apartment are metal and loud, and very narrow. You can hear when anyone is walking up or down the stairs.
Overall a cute apartment, but just has some drawbacks.
Side note – my fiancé got pick-pocketed very close to the apartment. The apartment is in a nice area, but just be very aware of having your belongings in your front pocket and not talking to anyone that is offering you anything on the streets.
The location makes this place a must.
We could not have loved this apartment more due to the location. The apartment was also clean and felt very safe. Communications and arrival were easy. The shower is an adventure but we figured out how to not soak the bathroom floor after a couple tries :) Otherwise everything was great! Some people noted that there was noise; you could hear people when they were on the stairs but there was not a lot of traffic on the stairs nor were people using the stairs at times that the noise was disruptive. We'd stay here again hands down.
Studio in the heart of El Born
The apartment's location, being that it was close to the beach and many of the city's attractions, was excellent. El Born has a very cool vibe to it and we really enjoyed the area's atmosphere. The apartment, although clean and well appointed, is in need of general maintenance. It could use some fresh paint and a deep clean. We did not hear noise from the metal staircase as others have mentioned. We did think it was strange that there was no top sheet for the bed, but we did locate a comforter that solved the problem. It was also great to have air conditioning as it was very hot during our stay. We would highly recommend the convenient bike rental shop just around the corner. Overall, we would not hesitate to stay here again.
Great stay in Barcelona
Nice little apartment in the heart of Barcelona. Apartment was equipped with everything nessassary to prepare meals which by the way we NEVER did. I am a food explorer and had to eat at the endless little restaurants we were surrounded by. Location could not have been better. Many attractions are walking distance, others are easily accessible by metro which is very inexpensive. We had a wonderful week. Thank you Marc and Sarai for being so welcoming and helpful.
