“We would recommend this flat for anyone wanting to visit Barcelona. It is excellently situated on the edge of the old town, close to the station (but not at all noisy). The flat itself is very stylishly decorated with beautiful pictures and furniture - a really enjoyable place to stay. The flat was very clean and Cristina and Peter took good care of our flat in exchange. A great stay - we would go again anytime!”
Cristina's reviewsAs a host (4)
“The house is great. Very comfortabele. Beautiful art, furniture, all very tasteful and charming. The location is superb as well. Peter andere Cristina are excellent hosts. We felt very much at home in this lovely place.”
“It was a super exchange. The apartment is in the best possible place, near all we could possibly need. Cristina and her family were very warm and always available to clarify any doubt. It was also a unique experience to sleep in a water mattress!! Thank you”
“Cristina, Peter, Alex and Nina are an extremely nice family and very uncomplicated people. They offer a spacious and charming apartment, which is perfectly located in one of the most beautiful cities we have ever been to. Not only our exchange with them was fantastic. The mailing before was also very nice so that we have always had a good feeling about the swap. Perfectly organized in advance. All thumbs up and highly recommended!!”
Where is it?
Our flat lies in El Born, just by the beautiful park La Ciutadella. It is a five minutes walk from the Picasso museum, a 10 minutes walk from the charming old harbour and 15 to the beach.
The Born district is considered to be the Soho of Barcelona, and it is one the most beautiful parts of the city with all the old world charm and a very local feel. Medieval streets, breathtaking palaces, churches (Santa Maria del Mar), markets (Santa Caterina) and museums. It is full of galleries, trendy as well as traditional shops, amazing wine stores and nice restaurants with terraces. It is very close to the sea and the Barceloneta district, an original fishermen neighbourhood full of tapas and fish restaurants.
Also at a walking distance are the city hall, the cathedral, the famous Ramblas, the Palau de la Musica, the market hall el Mercat de la Boqueria and Plaza Real.
And if you do not feel like walking, you have all public transport just at the corner!
There are multiple public transportation options- the yellow and red metro lines; numerous bus routes; the regional train lines connecting to the beaches to the south just one block away. Barcelona is full of bike paths (you can ride to the beach on a bike in 10 minutes taking only bike paths and just crossing car traffic a few times).
We have a long list of suggestions; we love to give advices about enjoying the city and choose the best restaurants off the touristic mainstream.
