Stayed here for 5 days at the start of July. Took a good while to find the place, as its down a rather dodgy looking alley behind the Santa Maria del Mar and there are no signs. Had to call the company several times for directions and then the door code to get in, as the one they had emailed... More

Liked this apartment a lot. Its a nice cosy apartment in a great location. All the facilities you need are there. The only real negative is that the check-in was somewhat convoluted where you have to check-in at another location (that wasn't that easy to find), and then its not obvious where the actual apartment is (or where the entrance...

The photos shown on the webpage are professionally done with much additional lighting. The reality is much darker and not all the lights even work. The apartment did not smell but the photos cannot show the really bad (sewer type) odor upon entering the small foyer. They cannot show the surprise 250 Euro deposit demanded. They can't show that the... More

We must have rambled around Barcelona for the guts of an hour trying to find this place! It was down a side road and was really difficult to find, the reception is nowhere near the apartment itself... when we got there, the apartment was fantastic, the balcony was huge! It is a typical studio apartment, inside isn't that big and... More

The bathroom is the smallest I've ever seen with the shower at one end with the toilet in front of where you get out and no where to stand when you dry yourself, everytime you have to jump over the toilet to get out of the shower. Stayed in room 402 the apartments were in a great location but really... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
