fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this apartment. The size was great for our family of 5 (3 adult children). Great information when we first arrived and we were allowed to move in early which was a bonus. The location is awesome, supermarket 5min walk away and you are right in amongst all the action. Incredible location. We would definitely stay again if we were back in Barcelona. Thanks!

We would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this very comfortable apartment. It was a great fit for our family with three young children plus my husband's parents. We've visited Barcelona several times but this was definitely our favorite location. The apartment was amazingly quiet considering its prime location. We loved walking out the door right into the heart of Barcelona. Check-in was very easy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only downsides were one shower (it is a huge shower with two shower heads, but was still a bit inconvenient for more than one family sharing the apartment) and the six-story walk-up was difficult for my aging father-in-law. It was no problem for our kids, though. The apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious, and very welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.

Apartment summary is misleading

  • 2 of 5

While the location of this apartment is amazing and the ad photos are very similar to the actual apartment, my family and I were VERY disappointed with our stay in this apartment. We feel that we were misled on two important points: 1) air conditioning, and 2) the amount of stairs involved.

The description of the apartment claims to be air conditioning. This gives you the impression that the entire apartment is air conditioned when in fact only the living room is air conditioned. None of the bedrooms have air conditioning. The two front rooms don't even have fans. We ended up pulling mattresses into the living and all camping out as though we were in a summer camp, in order to cool down. We did not pay good money to find ourselves sleeping on the floor. I am past those camping days.

On the stairs, the description does state that it is on the 3rd floor. What it doesn't tell you is that it is 82 stairs to get to the third floor. It is 40 stairs just to get to the first floor. So if you are a family of young children and senior citizens, like we were, this was very difficult for everyone. Therefore, we felt like we were misled. An average third floor apartment is not 82 stairs up.

I was also disappointed with the lack of information provided by the gentlemen who greeted us and lack of information available in the apartment. I have rented a lot of apartments by now and they always have a binder of information to explain the wifi code; the garbage scenario; how to get around the city and city maps; along with suggestions for restaurants. This apartment had NOTHING along those lines. Thank goodness our tour guide could help us with directions; gave us a map; and gave us restaurant recommendations.

The apartment could also use some work - many tiles and pieces of hard wood are popping up when you walk on them. There is some TLC needed. But the kitchen and large bathroom were nice and fully operational which was good. And again, the location was amazing once we had a map and knew where we were.

Therefore, unless you are going to stay at this apartment in cooler months or are physically fit, I do not recommend this apartment for the average family.

Owner's Response: Dear Brigitte, I deeply regret your comments, as you were informed at all times that the apartment is on a third floor without lift of an old building in Borne quarter. This feature is advertised on the website, and I communicated to you again when you contacted me on November 2015. The Borne is a very old area (some archaeological remains dating from S. III a. C), all houses are made of stone and are rehabilitated. The architecture of the same does not allow the installation of elevators. By the other hand, your stay coincides with the first heatwave in Barcelona. During your stay you have a 24hours contact phone , so you can ask fans or anything that will miss in the apartment. Our staff is always available for you. During check-in you were informed of the operation of the apartment. At this point you should ask what is necessary, and once again you have a contact number in case you need something later. Anyway, we appreciate your comments as they help us to improve our service. All the best, Karen.

Location

From the Owner

El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same line. Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minutes walk away. El Born has been transformed almost overnight into the stylish, in-vogue heart of the city. Small, intimate, friendly and funky quarter. The heart and soul of this community is the wide open, tree-lined Passeig del Born. At one end of the Passeig is an impressive metal and glass structure, the former Mercat del Born covered market, while at the other end is one of the most important Gothic churches in all Catalonia, Santa Maria del Mar.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Barcelona El Prat (BCN) at 18 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Barcelona Cruises Terminal at 3 Kilometres Nearest Train : França Train Station (RENFE) at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Barceloneta at 3 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Enjoy Barcelona!
