The Hopper I apartment is situated in the heart of the Borne which is the trendy and upbeat part of the Old Town in Barcelona. It lays right next to the Gothic quarter of Barcelona which is the oldest part of the city.

The Barrio Gótico contains a concentration of medieval Gothic buildings only a few blocks northeast of Las Ramblas. It is a maze of interconnecting dark streets linking with squares, and there are plenty of cafés and bars.

The apartment itself is close to Paseo del Born which is 50 meters to the amazing gothic church of Santa Maria del Mar, the Picasso Museum, the Cathedral, and the port.

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.

The Hopper I apartment building has been renovated to strict rules and guidelines which conserves the historic facade of the ancient gothic quarter. The Hopper I apartment itself is located on the first floor of this lovely building and is one of five apartments in the same building, Hopper I, II, III, IV and V. There is no elevator in this building, as is quite common in the old part of Barcelona.

From the living/dining area you can look down onto Calle Rec, a small street with some great stores and good restaurants. With an open plan layout and some distinct characteristics such as original curved ceilings which are typical in some of our lovely old Catalonian buildings, any guest can relax after a day of adventuring through the narrow cobbled stone lanes of the old town.

The bedroom accommodates a double bed and comes with wardrobe and drawers where the guest can put his belongings. The decor is again simple and elegant with a fresh and sharp look.

The living room area has a comfortable sofa bed, TV and stereo and is a nice area to sit back in and enjoy some quiet time before heading out to the hustle and bustle of Barcelona.

The kitchen has been newly installed and is fully equipped with vitroceramic counter tops, and all the commonplace items like fridge, microwave-oven, pots, pans, coffee machine, fridge and so on. The bathroom comprises of a shower unit and is stylishly decorated with mosaic tiling. The whole apartment is fitted with air conditioning (hot/cold).

All linens and towels are provided as well as an iron and ironing board.
Whether you are in Barcelona on business or on vacation, staying at this apartment will make it a memorable visit!

PLEASE NOTE: this lovely, recently refurbished building is typical of the Borne area in Barcelona, as mentioned above there is NO elevator and the low and VERY narrow entrance to the building leads to a narrow and spiral staircase. This is not to say the entrance and staircase is not as nice and of the same high quality as the rest of the building.

The Hopper building comes with a great communal terrace which the guests are welcome to use during their visit...

This apartment does not have private parking; however, you will find public parking within 100 meters.

We liked the location and the very professional people of your business. Apartment was cosy, few hooks in the bathroom for towels and a shelf in the shower would have made life easier.

I am torn on writing a review on this apartment. We loved the location as it was situated in the best part of Barcelona - surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants. This was a nice change from the busy streets with cars and buses.
Because it is so close to restaurants and clubs the noise level at night is too loud. This apartment bedroom backs onto a small street where a club is. Every night from 12:00 am to 5:00am there is so much noise that it is hard to sleep - almost impossible. The apartment is old so I think the windows are not soundproof at all. Wear good ear plugs!

Friendly RentalsThank you Mary! We greatly appreciate your feedback and yes we agree the apartment location is perfect and fantastic! The apartment is in a historic building and in the heart of EVERYTHING Barcelona so some noise in inevitable for all who reside there. The apartment is ideal for those who want to experience true excitement, while immersed in culture and history, and of course the low cost price makes this one of our most popular apartments in Barcelona..see you again soon Mary!James Customer Care

Location in the very center. Helpful staff. Well-equipped kitchen. Comfortable bed.
Awfully noisy, especially at night - only ear plugs saved me. Not convenient time for check-in.

Friendly RentalsHello Iuliia, Thank you for your feedback! Being located in the Born district, with plenty of bars and restaurants in the surrounding area, the Hopper apartments can unfortunately be noisy at times. Should you wish to come back to Barcelona, we will be pleased to recommend you another property in a more residential area to better suit your needs. As for the arrival procedure, our standard check-in time is 3:00pm as specified in our terms & conditions of use; however, we always try and accommodate early check-in requests subject to availability. Thanks again for your comments on the Hopper I apartment. We stay at your disposal for any future assistance.James Customer Service

Lage war super! Service war sehr freundlich! Gut ausgestattete Wohnung! Perfekt für eine Auszeit in Barcelona
Wenn man es zum schlafen sehr ruhig braucht ist die Lage der Wohnung eventuell nicht die Beste, umgeben von Bars und jungen Menschen. es ist relativ laut in der Nacht und die Fenster nicht wirklich Schalldicht ;-) Hat uns jedoch nicht weiter gestört.

Excellent location in the heart of the Born district.
The windows have barely any soundproofing effect and there is a lot of noise from the nearby bars, especially at the weekend. Fortunately we had earplugs.

Friendly RentalsThank you Richard! Yes the apartment is located in the best location of the Born and the heart of the old city. Noise will be inevitable for any apartment in this area. We greatly appreciate your honesty and we are very happy you will stay in this apartment again on your return :) see you soon!James Customer Care

The apartment was in an excellent position to explore the best of Barcelona. Felt secure and comfortable. Well equipped, close to shop for essentials, bars and street life . The terrace available with shower
The divan bed when opened completely filled the width of the room, blocking access to the living area and bathroom . More suitable for two persons than four.

Friendly RentalsThank you Ruth for sharing your experience! We look forward to having your back!James Customer Care

The location was great and it was easy to walk around the Born and Gothic areas and it was just a 15 minute walk to the beach which is lovely. Also a 2 minute walk to the station where plenty of taxis were available. Mainly pedestrianized around the apartment so nice to walk around. A few good restaurants close by and plenty of bars and a lot of ice cream shops!

Friendly RentalsThank you Kay for sharing your experience! We look forward to having you back!

Location was great. Balcony and light in the apartment
The shower was really poor, you could not hang up the shower head and the pressure was light. This should be improved. There was a pool of water in the fridge when we arrived that we had to clean up and the fridge did not seem to be cold enough.

Zeer fijne ligging en mooi appartementje Eigen balkon is een meerwaarde , een klein tafeltje en twee plooistoeltjes zouden het helemaal af maken Alles qua winkels vlakbij
Je kan onder de douche nergens je spulletjes ( shampoo , douchecel ) kwijt , Alles moet gewoon op de grond ( vorige keer al aangegeven ) De TV deed het ( weer ) niet en de instructies in het boek komen niet overeen met de merken van TV en DVD , vervelend en al derde keer

Geweldige plek. Alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Levendige buurt en overal dichtbij. Schoon en verzorgd. Extra bedlinnen en handdoeken. Heel fijn.
In het weekend kan het wat luidruchtg zijn buiten. Voor slechte slapers op leeftijd dus geen aanbeveling.

Very nice check-in service (Sonya). Apartment location (near Arc de Triomf, Barcelona Cathedral, metro station, shops), equipment (washing machine, microwave, coffee machine, TV/DVD player, etc. ), furniture (sofa, table, chairs), cleanliness, the view.
During the night it was rather cold, there was only an air conditioner in the other room - the bedroom was missing a proper heater during colder nights. The electric kettle was shortcutting the power grid. The hot water in the shower lasted only for a few minutes - I understand the reasoning behind it, but it would be nice to be informed about it beforehand. During the night it was very loud - people were chatting outside until the early morning, plus there were cleaning cars going around multiple times during the night.

Die Lage ist hervorragend zu sehr vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten, zum Einkaufen und zum Bummeln. Die Einrichtung des Appartements ist zweckmäßig, das betrifft besonders die Küche. Der Weg im Haus zu Appartement und Dachterasse führt über eine abenteuerlich schmale Wendeltreppe. Man ist gut beraten, nicht mit einem Schrankkoffer anzureisen.
Uns hat alles gut gefallen

La situation de l'appartement près du marché El Born, avec sa place publique; nous pouvions profiter de la lumière et d'une belle vue sur la place. Très central pour aller dans tous les quartiers de Barcelone à pied. Assez près du métro. Beaucoup de services: marché, traiteurs, restaurants. Une belle animation sur la place et dans les environs. De plus, nous avons beaucoup apprécié la terrasse. Un appartement bien situé, avec du charme!

Great location, right in the heart of the Born district of the old town, looking onto a small square. Very close to the Citadela park which was nice for evening walks, jogging and playground. If the market was not undergoing reconstruction, and was open the location would have been even better. The apartment was a good size and nicely styled with a good balance of modern fresh kitchen and bathroom as well as period character. The narrow twisty staircase entrance was also a novelty, even if a tight squeeze to get in.

We really loved this apartment. The location was great, and the apartment was light and airy. After a month of travel, it was great to have a washing machine (and drying rack--but we had to buy our own closepins.) Rooftop Terrace was an added bonus. Clean and modern, nice decor. Would rent the same apartment again, and will probably check in with you for an apartment in Buenos Aires for our upcoming trip in January.
