In april 2012 5 of us stayed in this apartment which was extremely well located in the Ribeira district near the Picasso museum. The apartment was comfortable and only a very short walk to Jaume station. Sadly it was too cold to use the rooftop terrace as that would be delightful in warm weather. It is located upstairs with no lift, which might be an issue for some, but not for us.

The erceival by Jordi was very nice and we liked the apartment which was nice and spacious and well decorated. Also the contact with Claire was kind and pleasant. However the apartment was not very well cleaned. We called Jordi and he arranged that the cleaners came back! However the quality af the cleaning is not very well. When people outside are talking in the street it is like they are standing in the room (even with windows closed). The location of the apartment is very nice!! Shops and restaurants closeby.
We liked best: the location and the apartment space and decoration. We liked less: the cleaning and noise. Overall we had a very nice stay!!

This apartment is great! We spent 2 weeks in Barcelona and we had a wonderfull time. Me & my daughters loved the huge bathroom with 2 showers, the open kitchen and the comfortable sofa. The roof terrace is great at night after a hot summer day. In the neighborhood are good restaurants, famous museums and a market with delicious fresh food. We didn't need a car and walked to the beach in 15 minutes, we rent bicycles for sightseeing. We enjoyed our stay and we would rent the apartment again when we come back.
Thanks to Claire for the perfect organization

This is a great refurbishment of an old building, right in the heart of the Born neighborhood. Lots of charm and really great location in the narrow streets, with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. We were a group of six, and this apartment had plenty of bedrooms for all of us, as well as a nice big lounge and kitchen.

This was a lovely apartment with everything you could want for your holiday in it. I have been to Barcelona many many times and always stayed with Bcnbound and this has to be one of the nicest and most convenient apartment on thier books. Plenty of room for family or friends to all sleep comfortably. There were several of us this time and it was great.

“Fantastic apartment in Barcelona”
Left on 12/13/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Dec 13, 2011Stayed Sep 2011
Myself and 3 girlfriends rented this apartment in September, it was everything we hoped it would be. Great location,really big rooms lots of space for all of us including the bathrooms. The roof terrace is a great bonus and lovely to be able to sit and watch the sunset over the city with a nice glass of wine!
The service from Bcnbound was excellent, and the instructions were very easy to follow and lots of great tips on where to eat where to drink and very importantly where to shop.
We have already booked again for next year. I can't recommend this apartment enough!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we very much enjoyed meeting you and your group, we look forward to seeing you next year.

this apartment is right in the el borne area which is the best place to stay, all the tourist sights are nearby and the metro is 30 seconds away. It is huge, well furnished, has free wifi, air con and 3 huge double bedrooms. The main bathroom is lovely and the 2nd shower room great for our large party of 7 persons. The roof terrace was great for having a drink. Thanks for all.
Thanks for the review, we are delighted you had a great time, it really is a very lovely apartment and in a great location. Claire

“El born apartment barcelona”
Left on 11/30/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Nov 30, 2011Stayed Aug 2011
This is the most beautiful apartment we have ever stayed at. Right in the city centre with everything we needed on our doorstep. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished and really well looked after. Our meeter and greeter George was fantastic and showed us around and answered all our questions. He also showed us up to the roof terrace where we sipped cocktails as the sun went down. Truly a wonderful place to be, spacious and light with a feeling of luxury. We can't thank you enough! We loved it and the price was great too!
