What Past Guests Are Saying
US - Germany
Could not have found a better flat
Great flat, great owner, super great location. Horacio was wonderful and provided us with a lot of great information prior to and during our stay. There was plenty of space; we were a party of 9 (4 adults & 5 children). Since we stayed a week we received a free housecleaning midway through our stay ...Awesome. Location, location, location. The best part about the flat is the location.. close to everything. We could not have found a better flat.
Amazing apartment in El Born
The apartment was amazing. Big and spacious. Plenty of space for a lot of people. We did have a few issues with hot water but Horacio was going to have the hot water heater checked after we left. Washer and dryer were extra helpful too!
The El Born neighborhood was beautiful and very hip and trendy. My sister stayed at a hotel off Via Laetaina and liked our neighborhood much more. There are a lot of bars and restaurants to grab a bite to eat or have a drink.
Horacio was such a nice man, he really worked with us and helped us out. When we checked in, he even showed us around the neighborhood. I even called him to so ask about a dry cleaner to steam some dresses for us. He got me the address to the nearest one and even offered to go with us to help communicate!
Thank you so much for the wonderful memories in Barcelona!!!
5-Bedroom apartment in Born Neighborhood
We just returned from a one week stay at the 5-bedroom flat in Barcelona and things could not have gone better. The owner, Horacio, provided us with excellent information prior to arrival and met us at the flat on a very busy Easter Sunday afternoon. We were driving in from Zaragoza and he was patient with our late arrival and guided us to parking which saved us quite a bit of money. In short, Horacio was an excellent guide and host.
The flat itself is exactly as described, including being very clean. We were two families with 10 people, including five teenage boys. We fit comfortably and were even able to host two friends for dinner without a problem. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. Our friends cooked us a large dinner and were impressed with the outfit of the kitchen. We used the washer and dryer daily.
The Born area is very interesting. Our friends in Barcelona wondered how we found a place in this neighborhood. There are restaurants, stores and plazas all over. The Italian restaurant behind the flat is great, especially Wednesday-Saturday when they have live jazz. Everything in the neighborhood is compact without a lot of tourists. That being said, you can walk to most things you want to visit within 10-minutes, including two metro stations, museums, Las Ramblas, etc. The area feels safe as well as we were out late returning from an FC Barcelona game and felt comfortable.
This is not a luxury flat but it is very well done, well-maintained, comfortable and quite convenient. Horacio is very attentive. I would recommend this flat to family and friends.
Clean and spacious flat in great location.
We were seven women travelling, and it was great to have an apartment with so many separate bedrooms. Two bathrooms also helped the mornings run smooth! Flat is in the middle of fabulous Bourne area, best place to stay in Barcelona for food and shopping that isn't too commercial. All fussy women agreed that we'd recommend this to anyone - large families or larger groups of people. Not a massive living room space but great for getting together after a long day out in wonderful Barcelona!
Per & Tina
Perfect location in Barcelona
Thanks for a nice stay in a truly beautiful and cosy apartment which fully fulfilled our expectations, located very central especially in relation to El Born, with the wonderful tapas bars and the diverse business community in the small streets with a very nice atmosphere . The apartment was clean and in a fine condition and also very well equipped.
As host you where providing a perfect service, both in connection to introducing to the apartment and the close surroundings, parcs, restaurants, special attractions etc.
Our recommendations for attractions to experience, beside the nearest neighbourhood with all the restaurants and nightlife, is park GĂĽell, Sagrada familia, montjuĂŻc , Picasso Museum, Ciutadella park and offcourse Las Ramblas with the old market. and last but not the least the beach witch is in walking range from the appartment.
Response from Horacio Neira - 10/13/2012
Dear Per and Tina it was my pleasure to meet and also your family, I am happy that you enjoyed your time in my apartment and also discover the variety of boutiques and little design shops around the aparment that is such an extraordinary world to explore and one of the things I most like about it.
I look forward to your visit again in Barcelona. Kindest regards Horacio
This unit is well located- the short walk of a couple blocks takes to you any of the several Barcelona Districts you'll want to visit. The flat is well equipped and reasonably quiet - given the usual sounds of the city. There were 5 in our group and actually room for a couple more.
Location makes up for the mess-up in booking and ultimately ever
I was notified that this apartment was double booked a week or two before our departure and that our family will need to split up into two apartments for the first few nights. Needtheless to day, this put a damp on our long awaited vacation. Upon arrival, we were shown these two alternative apartments. One was not acceptable and we declined. We took the other one, which was a charming loft style apartment. We had to scramble and looked for a hotel after a long exhausting trip to get there. To their credit, we were given additional discount for this mistake (plus a bottle of wine and free Wi-Fi); nonetheless, it was a lot of hassel to pack and repack and get everyone settled in. We were also offered help on moving our luggage from one apartment to the other. Onto the actual apartment, it is exactly like the photos shown on the website. With the exception of one bedroom, the rest of them are a bit on the small side but that could just be the style in Spain. The kitchen has everything one would ever need to function well in a kitchen. The washer and dryer came in handy. The air-condition worked well, which is essential this time of the year. Some of the bedrooms were subjected to the noise from the streets but I think that would be the case at a lot of apartments. Afterall, the night life is what makes this a fun city so we were not too bothered by this. The location is the best part about this apartment and it is wonderfully surrounded by countless restaurants and shops. It is also close to a lot of area's attractions. We walked to a lot of places and we also utilized the subway. Getting to places was not a problem at all. One really does not need a car. The owner also provided a lot of info/direction, which was very much appreciated. The security to the apartment building was very solid. We felt very safe. The check out process was painless. We were just a bit late in checking out and they were very accommodating. In the end, the kids had tons of ice cream, tried the tapas and had a lot of fun at the beach and ultimately that was the most important thing to our family.
Very well located nice confortable apartment, Horacio and his assistent were very good with all the help we needed, close to the Barceloneta , the beach,and las ramblas.Beds are confortable too we specially liked the blinds in the rooms that allow to block the sun and you can sleep well. Suggestion lo leave manuals for the appliances or a good explanation on how to use them.
Fantastic apartment in central location
The apartment was perfect for us. Seven of us shared for my 50th birthday celebration. We had everything that we needed, it was very well stocked out for visitors, including towels, guide books maps of the area etc. taxies to & from the airport were arranged for us & everything went very smoothly. The flat is very close to the Picasso museum & some bars where we ate breakfast every morning. There was a small super market for water etc just round the corner. I would recommend the apartment to anyone wanting a central location, it was great!
New York City
Great experience in Barcelona
I usually do not write this type of recommendations, but, I thought it would be great for people to know about our experience at this apartment-since the owner was so helpful to get us in the apt. We were 9 in total in our group...and did not feel overcrowded in the apartment. The layout is good, and while it does not have a big living/dining area, it is perfect space for a more than comfortable stay. The rooms are big enough, offers two good bathrooms, and it has a good kitchen. The owner keeps the apartment very clean and well decorated. It is located in a great neighborhood of Barcelona which is well known and safe. It is close to the Picasso Museum. In the are there are lots of great restaurants, bars, and the shopping area is great. We enjoyed walking and dinning around the area. I do recommend this place for large families or group of friends. Good luck in beautiful Barcelona! we enjoyed staying at the apartment...and will do it again!

Many thanks Cesar !
Hope to see you again some day :)
Very nice flat in a great location
We are a Norwegian family, and in addition to us parents, we brougt four teenagers /young adults. We stayed there for eight days. It was a really good experience. The area El Born is very nice and close to the more busy Ghotic area and La Rambla, and also close to Barceloneta and the beach.
The flat was as described, it was clean and everything worked well. The livingroom is a bit small, but has a good table for etaing meals for 6-8 people, so that was not a problem. Bedrooms were really good, bathrooms were excellent and there was not any noise at night. The manager was very helpful. We certainly recommend this appartment.
Response from Horacio Neira - 04/18/2012
Thank you a lot Toril !
This apartment was in the excellent El Born area, close to all the amenities. 10 min walk from the port, Ramblas, markets and the other tourist areas. A well equipped apt. and friendly helpful service provided by Pia and Horatio. I would stay here again and have no problem in recommending it. A lift is available for those with mobility problems.
Fantastic apartment in a great location
This is a lovely apartment and I would definitely recommend it to others. From the start, the communication with the owner was excellent. I received lots of useful information about the apartment and the surrounding areas. Horacio helped us to book a taxi transfer from the airport which made life easier, and he answered all the questions we had very promptly. When we arrived at the apartment, it was just as we imagined from the photos. The apartment was clean and welcoming. Each bedroom had lots of storage space and the kitchen was well equiped. The location of the apartment was perfect. Even though it was easy walking distance to the metro stations, we actually walked to most of the tourist sites from the apartment. There are several nice bars and restaurants nearby and a supermarket just up the road so everything was convinient. We particularly like El Foro restaurant which served the most delicious argentinian steak. Most importantly though, the flat was quiet so we all slept well after all the sightseeing and dining.
This was a lovely roomy apartment, centrally located, perfect fo
Myself and 2 other families stayed in this lovely apartment in barcelona, there are 3 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, both with a shower and one also has a bath, we booked this apartment for our 3 families to share for the weekend in barcelona and wasnt disappointed. The apartment was modern, roomy and clean, it is also very centrally located in the Born area, easy for us to get back to the airport via train, and walking distance to everywhere we wanted to get to. Horacio and Pia were very helpful in suggesting things for us to do and Pia gave us alot of tourist information on the handover. I would definately recomend this apartment to all my family and friends, and would certainly stay here again when next in barcelona.
Response from Horacio Neira - 02/22/2012
Dear Heather we are happy to receive such good comments because they also reflect our enthusiasm in trying to offer the best to our guests and let them feel home, and, why not, even better then home!
We are particularly happy you appreciated the safety, quietness and convenience of the location specially in regarding with train connection from airport, convenient to a big family if you want to save some money and use public transport.
The completely safe, quiet and serviced neighborhood complete the picture for a wonderful stay in the Born glamour apartment.
Great apartment Excellent location
We stayed at the apartment in February, Horacio the owner gave us a warm welcome and plenty of information about places to see and eat. The apartment is located in Born in the Gothic quarter near the harbour there are lovely chi chi restaurants, bars, and shops in this area.
All the bedrooms were large and of a similar size and calibre so no arguments as to who gets which room. The central heating worked well and the kitchen was well equipped. we will definitely stay there again.
Fantastic apartment, first floor with lift, recently renewed, described as It was published, cosy, modern, spacious, clean and well maintained.
Five Double Bedrooms, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, 2 large bathrooms, laundry and dryer, everything was working fine and well
appreciated since we stayed more than a week.
It was the perfect choice for my whole family (8 members) Including my grand child 1.5 years old.
Pia, the owner's assistant, booked us a private airport transfer.
On arrival day, she waited for us at the apartment and gave us very good tips about the city, the surroundings and its best restaurants ...
During our stay, we had a free cleaning service.
She also called us to know if we need any extra assistance.
We also booked through Pia a half day City Tour with an English speaking driver.
I Took us to the city Interests at a reasonable price.
For a day trip, the Franca train station is at 5 min. Walking distance, we Took a train to Sitges, a beach town an hour from Barcelona, beautiful Beaches and great night life!
We also enjoyed to cook in the full equipped kitchen, everything was working fine and we enjoyed having breakfasts and dinners at the apartment Some,
Above all, this apartment has an outstanding location, everything was walking distance; nearby lots of excellent restaurants and bars, close to metro stations, supermarkets, parking, the Harbour, the Cuidadela park, the zoo and the beaches, the Ramblas, the markets and lots of museums.

Stayed there 3 nights. The location is perfect. Nice feeling when you are un the appartment. Good beds. Got stuck in the bathroom because of the lock that was broken but the was fun ! The owner showed us many good places to party and to visit or eat!
Would be perfect if the leaving room windows were not locked.
First time in Barcelona
This apartment is in an amazing location. It's close, but not too close, to Las Ramblas and lots of great shops, museums and restaurants. The owner is very friendly and helpful. He even brought us umbrellas on our first day so we wouldn't have to buy them ourselves and left us a map and other goodies! The apartment is also pretty well equipped for cooking, etc. It even has a washer and dryer.
My complaints are minor and easy to fix. First, the pillows are terrible! My husband and I had to share the one long flat pillow (the width of the double bed) which is not conducive to quality sleep. Easily remedied by bringing your own pillow. The other problem is that there isn't enough hot water for everyone to have a hot shower. We remedied that by having everyone turn the water off when shampooing, lathering, etc. That seemed to work fairly well.
inoubliable vacances catalanes
Ma femme et moi et un couple d'amis avec enfants, nous nous sommes decides pour passer une semaine de vacances a barcelone pour deconnecter de la vie parisienne. Nous avions des jours a recuperer grace aux fameux rtt et nous avons opte pour aller a Barcelone car mon ami Marc est d'origine catalane. Nous avons choisi cette appartement car ils nous paraissaient spacieux et acessible niveau prix. C'est un appartement entierement renove, parfaitement ameuble, avec une cuisine equipee parfaitement hallucinante. De plus la couleur des murs est tres chaleureux et te fait sentir bien. tu peux trouver dans l'immeuble un petit jardin interieur tres cool pour passer un petit moment de relax. Il est tres centrique, a cote du musee Pablo Picasso et du palau de la musica. C'est un quartier tres tranquille ideal pour les enfants ou tu peux trouver plein de commerces de proximite (boucherie, boulangeri, epicerie...). En plus le proprietaire Horacio est vraiment un type genial, super chaleureux, aimable qui est meme sorti avec nous pour connaitre mieux la ville. Il nous avec des bonnes adresses pour sortir, vraiment genial. La zone est tres bien desservie par bus et metro. Si quelqu'un souhaite aller en vacances en famille ou avec des amis, c'est vraiment l'appartement ideal. J'espere un jour y retourner
Outstanding in every way, beautiful apartment.
My family and a couple of friends with kids stayed in this apartment after returning from a Mediterranean cruise, and could not have picked out a better place to stay . We loved this apartment, it was newly renovated, modern and fitted out with all the best appliances, tastefully decorated with some artwork and nice paintings on the walls, very colourful and cheerful with exposed brick walls in the living room and one of the kids bedroom. Also we liked the little interior garden that add to the feeling of relaxation and being away, providing a peaceful retreat after a long day exploring the nooks and crannies of beautiful Barcelona. Unbeatable location where to experience the wonderful feeling of living in a quaint neighbourhood with exemplary bakeries, cafes, florists, quality restaurants, sunny terraces and fresh produce shops along with a lovely park and main tourist amenities at your doorstep like Picasso Museum and Palau de la Musica. Horacio the owner was also friendly and accommodating, providing us with fruit and a bottle of wine when we arrived, and eager to recommend several cool places to go, and some nice tapas restaurants like Bar Pinotxo in La Boqueria, a truly Spanish experience, he went above and beyond as hosts go, to make sure nothing was missing.
This spotless, well appointed apartment was worth every euro and great value for a family or a group of friends. Also, hop on/hop off bus stop within steps of the apartment, just at the entrance of Ciudadela park where we enjoy strolls and went to the zoo with our children. We would love to return and would definitely stay there again.
Excellent weekend away with the girls
Excellent and very accommodating service received from Pia and Horacio, lovely flat in an excellent location, with plenty of sights, bars and restaurants around. Recommended for a big group, good sized rooms and all the facilities you would require.
Spokane Wa, Phoenix AZ
Perfect location all as promised
Three couples stayed in this unit. It was perfect for us. Located in the Born3 near everything. Small, clean unit. Too many places to eat close to numerate. Walked everywhere. Be aware the apartment rear faces an active night life street. Ear plugs or fan is needed to mute the noise.
All three couples would stay there again. Thats our highest recommendation. Horacio organized our transportation from the airport to the apartment and the apartment to the ship. Everything was flawless.
fantastic apartment, fantastic location, fantastic welcome
This was the 6th year we have brought our staff to barcelona for our christmas party but the first time we have stayed in these apartments. When we walked through the door we were certainly not disappointed, the pictues and description when booking looked great and it is great when you get there, sometimes walls can be thin and you hear alot of noise from other rooms or apartments but not here. The location is fantastic just round the corner from passage del borne with plenty of great restaurants and bars. Pia who met us was very helpful and gave us a warm welcome and recommended several places to go, and we were not dissapointed with her suggestions, the restaurant at the santa catalina market was fantastic. I could not recommend this property enough, we love barcelona as a location and will definately be back and look forward to staying here again
we had a fabulous stay at the good located appartment: nice, comfortable rooms, a little bit noisy at night in some of the rooms due to nearby bars, but nice all the same, just bring some ear plugs. Anyway, you won't go to bed early in a town like this: too much to see and explore. Very nice restaurants and bars just a stone's throw away. Would go back, definitely!
Ian Harrison's Review October 2011
The service was first class. We were met at the flat by a representative who gave details of local amenities, restaurants etc and provided us with maps of the area.Horacio also arranged for transport from the airport for our group by minibus.The flat and contents were exactly as described on the internet. The location was ideal for us, close to the beach,the park,the zoo and the lively Passeig del Born.Something for everyone in our party.
Fabulous apartment in fabulous Barcelona
Stayed 3 nights with my wife and 5 kids (aged 11 to 17. The Born area of Barcelon is fantastic. Away from the touristy Ramblas with more of a village feel within the city. The apartment was exactly as described and the location superb. 10 minutes from La Rambla, 10 minutes from the beach and close to markets and some fantastic tapas bars and restaurants. The accomodation was very clean and spacious with lots of amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen, satelite TV and DVD player etc. Horacio, the owner, could not have been more pleasant and helpful. He took us on a mini tour of the area for about 20 minutes (we actually cut it short) pointing out bars and retaurants and the way to certain attractions in the city. The two restaurants he recommended we visited and had fantastic meals. In fact when we came back to Barcelona (4 weeks later at the end of our holiday in Spain) for an overnight stay prior to an early morning flight we went back to one of the restaurants, it was that good! I would highly recommend the apartment for groups of friends or larger families. In fact my wife and 4 friends are staying there next March!
