Few apartments in Barcelona ooze as much character as this.
The bare brick walls and high Catalan-vault ceilings are a reminder that we are in a buildingv that dates to the 1800s. The lounge boasts a comfortable sofa and stunning solid wood dining table, while its walls feature some truly original décor: a mural, the flowers on the wall and the bright green tiles that contrast with the kitchen’s white modern, minimalism. Its island will delight the chefs among you.
There’s more than one surprise in store on the balcony: aside from the monkeys that welcome you, there are also majestic views of the Pla de Palau, the market square of medieval Barcelona and a gateway for everything that arrived in the city from the sea.
Follow the hallway and you come to the stylish bathroom and its spacious shower. Next up is the single bedroom with its charming decorative touches and a small desk, just in case you’ve got no option but to work during your stay.
Finally, there’s the large double room with king-size bed and TV, which you might want to turn on for the news or even a film before you nod off for the night.
And what can we tell you about the location? Surrounded by the medieval streets of El Born and looking out to Barceloneta and the sea, there are few parts of Barcelona as ideally situated as this.
Our recommendations? Eat on the terrace at Sagás, which is right next door. All the meat in its sandwiches come from its farm in the little village of the same name. You can also try the terrace at El Pasadís del Pep, a well-known restaurant. If ice-cream is your thing, Gocce di Latte serves up the very best in Barcelona. Just a minute away lies the Basílica de Santa María del Mar. Climb up to its terraces and you’ll be rewarded with some wonderful views (one of the city's best-kept secrets).You can also stroll along El Passeig del Born and check out the Centro Cultural to find out more about the history of Catalunya.
We could go on for hours, but we’ll leave the rest for you to discover on your own.
We’re ready and waiting to welcome you. And so’s your apartment. When can we expect you?

Welcome to Barcelona! We’re delighted to have you with us and we hope you have an amazing time staying in our flat. That being said, and at the risk of stating the obvious, here are some basic ground rules for you to follow.
We’re not the police, nor do we want you to feel like we’re patronizing you, but we think it’s our duty to point out some common-sense stuff, as we’ve had some experiences in the past with guests who haven’t behaved so well.
Respect the neighbors. Put yourself in their shoes and keep the noise down to a minimum after 10PM. You are on holiday, but they are probably stressed about their jobs and would appreciate a good night’s sleep. We want you to have fun but to be reasonable too, and to treat others how you would want them to treat you. Also, try to avoid slamming doors and making a noise in hallways. And please try to be quiet when entering the building. It’s not hard to be a good neighbor and annoying them is only going to get you into trouble, which is something you surely don’t need when you’re on holiday. You’re also not allowed to have more guests than you stated when making your reservation.
No parties! We get it – you’re excited about being in Barcelona. But remember: the walls are thin and if you’re having a party, then so are the neighbors. And they might not be in the mood for one. Bear in mind that they may call the police to complain, which is something we all want to avoid. Any guests causing a disturbance will be asked to leave the apartment immediately. And they won’t get a refund. Sorry!
Keys and check-out
Please do not leave the keys in the mailbox. If you leave earlier than your check-out time, please leave the keys on the table and pull the door shut behind you. Most flats have doors that don’t need to be locked when you leave. Incidentally, that’s something to watch out for, as it’s very easy to get locked out, which is also a bummer – take our word for it! Make sure you lock the door with the key every time you leave the flat. It’ll keep your belongings safer.
Do not smoke inside
NO smoking allowed in the apartment. We care about your lungs, but if you have to do it, please step outside. We’d like to keep the flat smelling nice and fresh for our next guests.
Do not waste energy
We kindly ask you to please turn the lights and air conditioning units OFF whenever you leave the apartment. We care about our planet.
Additional cleaning, bedding, etc. can be arranged for longer stays but please make sure you request this when booking.
