Why Host chose Ciutat Vella

From the moment I walked in the Barrio del Born 20 years ago and it was not even a shadow of what it is today, I noticed a special atmosphere walking along the Paseo del Born, it was early spring, with a gentle breeze, the trees just green and all these streets with names of artisans, made ​​me fall in love with the area and was really thinking in 1500 when each craftsman had his street.

Museo Picasso himself apart the magnificent works of the painter, its buildings will bring to mind those times. Now everything has changed but the streets are still fantastic.

A medieval but with all the appeal of boutiques, restaurants, tapas, cocktelerias and especially the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a city like Barcelona, ​​where nobody is going to sleep before 12 pm neighborhood.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place, practically one breath away from the exquisite Basilica St. Marie, surrounded by prime restaurants and a nice walk to the beach! Unbeatable! Also very comfortable, spacious - and the managers were excellent.

Very good!

  • 4 of 5

Owner was very quick to respond to our emails. The young man who met us at the apartment was very friendly and helpful. He graciously arranged a taxi to take us to the airport at the end of our stay. The location by the Basilica in the Born district was great. Supermarkets and many good restaurants nearby. Very convenient to metro station. Short walk to Las Ramblas. The apartment was exactly as advertised. The owner called several times to make sure everything was fine. We would stay there again.

  • 5 of 5

"The apartment was nice, clean and quiet. Location is lovely, good restaurants, beautiful boutiques! We were worry about the church bells, but shouldn''t. My mornings were beautiful because of it!

Few minuses, all of them were probably not the owner''s issue, but…

First was the ants that crawl through the kitchen to the bathroom and eventually start to scout in the kitchen.

Second was the capacity of boiler. In other words, first two people took nice warm shower other two lukewarm. We made it work, cause it was end of July.

Third, it would be better if this apartment would be listed as 3+ people. The bedroom upstairs was comfortable for two. The folding sofa downstairs was long by width and relatively narrow. So, the only way to sleep was to climb over the person that slept on the edge of the sofa.

Everything else other than those minor issues was great! I would recommend this apartment with whole heart!

  • 5 of 5

"Excellent location and perfect apartment for a homelistay. Apartment fully equiped and very clean, it was a great bonus to have the outside space too. Situated in the El born area close enough to wander down to the beach area or equally up to Placa Catalunya. Very peaceful and lovely surroundings not far from Passeig del Born. The Church opposite creats a great setting and backdrop for the apartment, even the sound of the bells create a lovely feel. (For light sleepers they start at 7am, so you may want to sleep on the comfy sofabed downstairs). Flavia was very helpful on booking, sending lots of useful information and Rodrigo did the meet & greet, he was very friendly and helpful and punctual when we had to leave at 9am. Thank you very much for having us to stay at your apartment, and we look forward to our return visit to Barcelona. We loved it!! :)"

"The aparment was really superb!!!

The location must be the best in the hole Barcelona near everything. The apartment was clean and nice and even better than on the pictures. We relly loved the two teracces where we spent much time, they were lovely. Flavia the owner of the apartment was really a good help before arriving in Barcelona and when we where there she called several times just to check that everything was OK.

We can trully recommend this lovely apartment to anyone. I´m sure we will come back to Barcelona and then we definitely would come back to this apartment."

Nearest Beach

Spending your vacation in this apartment, you will be in the heart of Medieval Barcelona life with people walking up and down anytime day and night but with the security that you can relax and sleep like an angel as the apartment bedroom is in the back of the building and you will not hear any noise. Just you will have during the day the Santa Maria Cathedral bells that really makes you feel you are in a XV century old town.
