About this listing

Studio of about 25mq with kitchen area. Very comfortable and well positioned in the beating heart of Barcelona. The Born quarter is plenty of small-artesan shops as well as where nice and particular restaurants and bars are. LONG TERM rent only.

The space

Small squared studio, with good and firm bed and nice fully-equipped kitchen. You will immediately feel home, thanks to its warmth and cosiness. You will not need to think about anything but enjoy the city and you will be happy to go back to the flat to relax. Your sleep will be safe in the apartment, since the street is a quite one and, plus, the flat does not have balcony on the street (interior), thus guaranteeing your relax and rest. The studio is forth floor with NO lift, not suitable for people with reduced mobility.
Now with AirConditioning. AirConditioning is the only service NOT included in the studio price. Only guest who want it will be charged (35€/months).

Guest access

Guest will have access to everything.

Other things to note

NOTE: Because of the absurd, lobby-friendly regulation in Ciutat Vella of Barcelona which do not allow people to rent their home the way they consider best, forcing guest to pay more money for the same services (or be illegal), this flat cannot be rented for less than a month. Hotels owner will be happy to charge you double price for less.

I spent 30 days at Gianlu's apartment and found the stay very enjoyable. The apartment in the vibrant and arty El Born district of Barcelona embraces Catalan living. The apartment building in keeping with the historic area was old but the apartment itself modern. The WIFI was the fastest I have encountered during my many working stays in Barcelona. The new boiler meant loads of hot water for superb showers. There was also a brand new washing machine. Gianlu was a great host, always on hand, friendly and helpful. The area is very safe, El Born is lively, arty and creative with endless cafes, bars and restaurants. If you want to experience a real taste of Catalan culture then this apartment is for you.

The advantages of this apartment are clear, in local Airbnb comparison it is affordable, it is very central and close to all public transport too, and Gianlu is a very attentive host. We stayed here for four weeks, the ultimate minimum period. It is reasonably equipped, we made a few suggestions for some additions and repairs, and the washing machine is of course a plus too, Gianlu is now even having an aircon fitted in. For these advantages, we were prepared to put up with some disadvantages that can't be helped, it is on the fourth floor with a very narrow, partly submarine like staircase, the apartment itself is tiny, yet feels roomy for the size, apart from the bathroom, which really is tiny but works just fine, it has very few daylight, which might help in summer, but isn't great in winter. The disadvantage we didn't like at all was the nightly noise from the other inhabitants of the house, both locals and international tourists like us, we know this kind of noisyness from summer in barrio gotico and had hoped to avoid this here, given that it says 'quiet studio', but apparently this applies to traffic noise only, there is indeed none, quiet, however, it isn't. Since you sleep immediately behind the apartment door without any hallway, anybody stomping home through the staircase chatting full volume to each other at different times in the night, to give just one example, you just cannot sleep a full night. Another thing are the cooking fumes coming into the apartment even with everything fully closed, so you have to time your airing. Both of this makes it difficult for us to come back, because at sleep we draw the line. This might of course be different for younger people ;-)).

Just for the records. I weekly check with my guests if everything is OK, and I was always told everything was perfect.

Gianlu was a great host! Very helpful and was waiting for me when I arrived. The place itself was ideal for one or two people. Located in a beautiful neighbourhood with lots and lots of lovely shops, restaurants and cafes all around as well as a stones throw from the Arc de Triomf. Highly recommended!

Great apartment, very central, very cozy. Perfect for a solo traveler or a couple who don't plan on spending much time in the apartment. The space is fully furnished and has pretty much everything you may need. It's location is awesome because you can use the arc de triomf as a reference point, also the metro station is like 5 minutes walk. The wifi is strong and consistent.

We stayed in this apartment for 1 month. I would say that the apartment is probably best suited for those who are visiting the city for no more than a few days. The location is excellent, right where you would want to be in Barcelona and within easy walking distance to everything you would need. The apartment itself is pretty small and basic, so if you are staying for a longer time, you may need something with more facilities and space. The apartment doesn't get much natural sunlight so can feel a little cold at times. Overall it is fine if you are visiting Barca for a few days.

I really recommend this studio in El Born. The neighbourhood is great and you are at the metrostation "Arc de Triomf" in 5 min. You'll find everything you need at the apartment and there are many bars, restaurants and shops close to it. Gianlu is a really great host - friendly and reliable. Thank you!
