Guestbook comments from the owner

Hola Carmen. Thank you for everything. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable, so well located - we love it! Your suggestions were perfect and we had a wonderful time! I have rented several houses/apartments through VRBO and I must say that you have been the BEST property manager/owner I have had! Thank you so much! Barbara

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean. Wifi worked. Large fridge. Close to dining and walking around Born and area.

It is noisy some nights, but that is to be expected in this area. Really perfect location. So much to see and do within walking distance.

The location could not of been better

  • 4 of 5

Just steps from the plaza in front of Santa Maria del Mar.

Breakfast each morning at Bubos just steps away

Bubos also had great olives and bread with tomatofortapas in the evening.

I will say the apartment is quite noisy because of location and the windows

I wished I had brought earplugs with me

The building is very old and the stairwell is a little scary - very dark

The apartment isvbery comfortable and the beds and showers are great

Great Location, Great Air Conditioning, awkward layout, needs cleaning and toilet paper.

  • 3 of 5

The place is spacious, but has some strange and inconvenient issues.

1. The place needs a good cleaning. The bathrooms are not supplied with toilet paper. This is an inconvenience, and inconsiderate. Also, the sink and refrigerator smelled like spoiled food. I cleaned this myself because we could not stand it. 2. I did communicate with the owner and she told me toilet paper was not included, but asked her cleaning person to come and bring some toilet paper and to clean the bathrooms of the mold. That never happened, she did not show up. After many attempts, and asking the owner, I gave up. 3. There are awkward steps inside the place, so, you must be careful not to fall or trip. This is not for anyone who has even the slightest issue with sight or balance. 4. We were woken up several times by drunk people pressing the entry call button and singing songs. This was crazy and disruptive, but no fault of the owner. 5. The good things about the apartment are the wonderful air conditioning, washer and dryer, and space. It is old, but, that is expected and part of the experience. The apartment was well lit. I would say it is decent value for the area.

I wish I could have met the owner. Instead, the cleaning lady greeted us and unfortunately she did not speak English so she could not help answer any questions or teach us how to use the washer or dryer. We did enjoy our stay in Barcelona.

I'm going to be generous and give it three stars, I don't have the heart to rate it a two.

Stay here if you can handle stairs, noise, and some dust and mold in the bathrooms.

Location and charm can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as described in the ad. It was a bit tricky to find but once inside we were thrilled with the apartment. Be aware that the stairs to get to the apartment are steep are difficult to maneuver suitcases up, but they certainly made for good giggles as we tried to haul our heavy luggage up the flights. The square that's close by has great places to eat and people were friendly. We never met Carmen but the cleaning lady Leila was kind and helped us through the ins and outs of the apartment as best she could (she didn't speak English nor I Spanish). I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a spacious, comfortable, clean rental in a great location of Barcelona.

Great Spacious Apartment in the Middle of Everything

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay! So much space - after a week of very hot weather and two teenagers getting a little cranky - it was so wonderful to arrive here and spread out! There is a spacious main floor with a kitchen and living area and bathroom - then downstairs is a small bedroom with 2 twin beds and a desk and wardrobe. Upstairs is a large master bedroom with a bathroom and a walk-in closet. Large windows brought in lots of light. It is a 3rd story walk up.

Owners were very easy to deal with - our bedroom air conditioner broke after the first night and they got someone in there to fix it the next day. Plenty to do right outside the door - beach is 15min walk away. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Car: not necessary

Located in El Born, a trendy area full of new designers and cozy restaurants, and near Santa Maria del Mar (Catedral del Mar), Picasso Museum, the old port and the beach. The terms that best describe this apartment are design and comfort. In an ancient building, it was completely renewed 2 years ago and it overlooks a quiet pedestrian street.

150m. far from JaumeI metro station (yellow line)
