Completely refurbished to a high standard and in an amazing location. You couldn't ask for more.

Steps away from el Borne, Barceloneta, Port Vell and with easy access to the rest of Barcelona, this apartment on the edge of the Gothic Quarter, the true heart of Barcelona, will be the focal point from which to map out your your stay.

The apartment:
This lovely apartment is one of several we can offer in the building. The photographs are a selection of the various units. The apartments may vary slightly in the layout or décor but the features are the same. Your specific apartment will be allocated on arrival.

This superb apartment and building has been completely refurbished (2012) and you will not be disappointed in the quality, modern and tasteful look. The combination of high ceilings with exposed wooden beams combined with the ultra modern look gives a very warm and inviting atmosphere and the tall windows ensure an abundance of mediterranean sunlight floods in.

The key feature of this apartment is the wonderful cupola where the master bedroom is situated. This bright and open space will promote sweet dreams for anyone staying there. Please note this area is not recommended for children or anyone with mobility problems.
The cupola area overlooks the open plan living/dining area which has the advantage of being on the corner of the building and has access to two small balconies allowing you to watch the world go by outside. The comfortable sofa converts into a double bed and the funky mismatched chairs around the dining table make it the perfect area spot for planning your days and relaxing with a bottle of wine.

The modern and practical kitchen has everything that you might need to ensure a hassle free stay.

The second bedroom comes with two single beds and wardrobe space. There is also access to another small balcony from here.

The sleek and modern bathroom is complete with bath/shower combination. Fresh linens and towels are provided for your stay.

All of this comes with A/C and wireless internet. You will not be disappointed.

This apartment does not have private parking; however, you will find public parking within 300 meters.

Location and proximity to Born, Gothico and Barceloneta. The space is awesome. The upper bedroom is a dreamy place. The interior design is lovely. The Crew of FR were very friendly indeed, James in particular.

Friendly RentalsThank you Ali! We are happy we could offer you this apartment, come back soon!

Prima. Mooi appartement op goede locatie. Verzorgd, schoon en goede bedden. Douche in bad blijft onhandig. Zeker als het scherm op het bad niet lang genoeg is om het rondspattende water tegen te houden. Gevolg: een natte douche vloer die ook niet droogblijft met een douchematje.
Jullie geven aan naar de mogelijkheid te kijken als gasten na 11u willen uitchecken. Er wordt niets vermeld over extra kosten. Wij wilden graag 1 uur later uit checken. Dat kon na betaling vd halve dagprijs. 114 euro voor 1 uurtje later. Niet zo klantvriendelijk.

Friendly RentalsThank you Sharon for your feedback! I apologize for any misunderstanding regarding late check-out. Our policy is to charge 50% of daily rate and the customer can have late check-out at 18h. However, for 1 hour later, we normally will not charge anything as long as there is no check-in that same day. I will speak to check-in department to inquire if you indeed try to request late check-out for an extra hour. We are happy you will come back and rent this apartment again. We promise we will make it up to you next time!James Customer Care

Su ubicación, el buen gusto en la decoración y la luminosidad del apartamento.
En general está todo muy bien conservado. En este caso, no funcionaba bien el exprimidor de naranja. El año pasado llevé el mío propio, pero como vi que había uno en el apartamento este año no lo llevamos. Tuvimos que hacer el zumo a mano. . . También el palo de la fregona está doblado. De todos modos, entiendo que se puedan escapar estos detalles.

Friendly RentalsMuchas Gracias Ricardo! Ahora voy avisar a Mantenamiento y Housekeeping. Para la proxima estancia, por favor contactar con nosotros durante su estancia de cualquier duda y podemos ayudar Inmediatamente. Nos vemos la proxima!James Customer Care

First of all the location was perfect! You are situated in the heart of it all, with a 10 min walk from the beach and equally a 10 min walk from the central shopping area, plus a handful of small supermarkets all on your door step. We quickly learned that we had a gem of a restaurant literally underneath us too! - 7 Portes which is fabulous for fish lovers. The apartment itself was a great size for two of us (couple) and very bright and airy inside and beautifully decorated. Being able to open up the balcony doors every morning and look over the city was amazing. Also quite a well equipped kitchen and good sized dinning area. The bedroom on the mezzanine level was lovely, especially liked the little port hole feature in the ceiling. Friendly rentals were very helpful anytime we had an issue or needed help with anything!

Friendly RentalsThank you Stacey for sharing your experience! We hope to enhance the apartment as you recommend. We look forward to having your back!James Customer Care

The location of the apartment was the best part. The building was very secure and beautiful. I loved the interior decor, it was bright and clean and spacious. I would book this exact apartment again if I return to Barcelona.
The bathroom was starting to rust in parts, which although clean, made it seem a bit dirty. The room was loud at night because of street noise, but anywhere in Barcelona is going to be noisy at night.

posizione perfetta, centralissima appartamento spaziosissimo, luminosissimo, ristrutturazione curata nei minimi dettagli sia all'interno che all'esterno, nelle zone comuni arredamento molto curato e di ottimo gusto magnifico il soppalco sul soggiorno
premetto che sono solo dettagli, perchè l'appartamento è perfetto: - servirebbero alcuni ganci appenditutto in più nelle camere - l'ideale sarebbe avere una macchina per caffè a cialde (con qualche cialda, o con un distributore di cialde negli spazi comuni) - i cuscini sono un po' scomodi

L'emplacement idéal; la luminosité; la taille; le niveau de prestation; la chambre en mezzanine sous la coupole; un appartement dans un vrai palais
La salle de bain beaucoup trop petite pour une famille (et comparée à la taille de l'appartement); le WC dans la salle de bain. Appartement idéal pour 4; pas idéal pour 6 étant donné le manque d'intimité pour les personnes dormant dans la mezzanine, au dessus du salon.

EL APARTAMENTO ES PRECIOSO Y MUY COMODO, SU SITUACIÓN ES IDEAL. LAS INSTALACIONES TE HACEN SENTIR COMO EN CASA.
EL PROBLEMA PRINCIPAL ES EL RUIDO, EN LA ZONA CENTRICA DONDE SE ENCUENTRA HAY MUCHO TRÁFICO, Y CREO QUE FALTA UNA BUENA INSONORIZACIÓN EN LAS VENTANAS. OTRO PROBLEMA ES LA CLARABOYA DE LA HABITACIÓN PRINCIPAL, DEMASIADA LUZ PARA DORMIR. . . . MUY INCOMODO PARA EL ESPAÑOL ACOSTUMBRADO A LAS PERSIANAS.

Très bien situé, proche de tout (transport, commerces, café, restaurant, etc). Appartement très confortable et plein de charme (ah la chambre sous le dôme!) et parfait pour une famille (2 adultes, 2 enfants). Propre, bien chauffé. Service d'accueil serviable, aimable et chaleureux (nous avons apprécié de pouvoir intégrer l'appartement avant l'heure prévue). Service d'entretien très efficace (problème de chasse d'eau réglé en très peu de temps).
Un temps infini (3-4 minutes) pour que l'eau chaude coule pour la douche le matin. WiFi fluctuant Une cafetière italienne plutôt que le café filtre serait appréciable (mais il y a de nombreux cafés alentours qui servent un excellent café)

the main design and interior of the app is really great. the location is perfect. beds are comfortable. but: pillows are too hard. a selection of 2-3 different ones would be great!
was too cold in the appartment when arriving. the bathroom is way too small for the size of this appartment. no shelf to put something on. only 2 hooks for the towels. water from the shower is splattering all over. a nespresso of coffee-pad machine would be great. (who drinks filter coffee nowadays?)

La qualité des lits, l'emplacement de l'appartement, l'entrée des lieux sécurisés. Pression de l'eau et accès à l'eau chaude et au chauffage. La disponibilité d'une laveuse à linge, d'une planche à repasser et un séchoir à cheveux. Propreté des lits et de la cuisine et salle de bain. Échantillon de shampoing et papier de toilette disponible à l'arrivée.
accès à internet difficile. Pas de napperon ou de nappe pour la table de cuisine. La douche était très bien mais la porte n'est pas assez longue et l'eau coulait partout sur le plancher.

Bus Hop-on-hop-off hält direkt resp. um die Ecke zur Wohnung. Alles sehr sauber!! Sogar Spülmittel, Wischlappen, Küchentücher sind vorhanden. Kein Lärm im Treppenhaus in der Nacht! Wir verbrachten super tolle Ferien in dieser schönen Wohnung. Vielen Dank i hasta luego!
