The Hopper V 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 V apartment building has been renovated to strict rules and guidelines which conserves the historic facade of the ancient gothic quarter. The Hopper V apartment itself is located on the fifth 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 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.

All linens and towels are provided as well as an iron and ironing board.

The apartment is fitted with partial air-conditioning (hot/cold) in the living room.

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.

location, location, location! iT'S a great neighborhood close to a lot of interesting stuff - good restaurants, hopping nightlife. Close to train and metro stations (5 minute walk) and close to the waterfront. Price seemed reasonable for the neighborhood.
Did not have WiFi as advertised. The rental agency made some efforts to remedy the situation, without success. They promised a price adjsutment as compensation but never delivered, which makes me question the rental agency's reliability. The stairway is an extremely narrow circular staircase which made it difficult to take bags up and down. I STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST THIS APARTMENT IF YOU HAVE BAD KNEES OR LARGE SUITCASES.

Friendly RentalsThank you Paul! I am very sorry about the wifi issue that occured during your stay. We did indeed process a refund to you, if you did not get it please email us. I appreciate the notes on the stairwell as it is very narrow and may not be suitable for all guests. Also a note to guests: this apartment is on the top floor which is 5 floors up. We are happy you will stay with us again, keep in contact and see you soon :)James Customer Care

The building is very old and classic, which I love. It had a lot of personality. The beds were very comfortable and the AC really helped in the warm weather.
I didn't like the narrow stairwell and 5 flights of stairs we had to climb with all of our luggage. Other than that, the apartment was great.

- Very helpful administrators on the reception - Nice and cosy apartment, well-equipt and clear - Wery good location - not far from both historical center (Rambla, Catalonia squere, Gothic quarter) and the embankment - A lot of nice restauranrs, bars and shops around
- There is the narrow ladder and no elevator - it was not a problem for us (young couple without children and heavy baggage), but it's important to know before choosing this appartment - There are no more minuses in our experience of staying at Friendly Rentals!

Friendly RentalsThank you so much Artem!! Your review is great and very helpful. See you soon!James Customer Care

L'appartamento è molto carino, arredato in maniera semplice e funzionale, dotato di tutto ciò che deve. La posizione, nel cuore del Born, davvero bella.
Nel week end la zona è molto rumorosa soprattutto di notte. La scala a chiocciola così stretta è infattibile con un bagaglio più grande di un trolley

The space in the apartment was great. The wooden dining table was a nice touch too. The layout was well thought out. The roof terrace was a nice quiet spot away from the busy street below. The location near to all the best spots in Barcelona was ideal for us.
Small staircase. Was aware of this due to the previous reviews. Also, the hi-fi did not have a red and white port for the speakers, nor did the tv. I bought a cable to connect my ipod (via 3mm jack) to the hi-fi or tv to play songs. This wasn't possible as the hi-fi did not have this connection and the tv only had a scart connection. Overall, the apartment was slightly dim lit.

Friendly RentalsThank you Ravin for your honest experience! We are happy you could enjoy your music and we will speak with maintenance department about possibility of upgrades for better music enjoyment. Because Barcelona values energy conservation we equip apartment with efficient lighting to ensure energy objective. For your next stay, please inform us right away if we can do something to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. We look forward to having you back!James Customer Care

The location was absolutely perfect, it had everything we needed for a short stay. Very well equipped for cooking in the evenings and the kitchen was well stocked with cutlery, glasses etc. Everything was clean and tidy, no problems with anything
The staircase to get the apartment was very narrow, although we already knew this from reading previous reviews it might be an idea to upload a photo of the size of it as it would make getting large suitcases to high floors very hard.

Location. We travelled with a young child, so we felt we needed to be centrally located and close to things we all like (for the adults, sightseeing, for the little one the beach and park). After booking we were thrilled to find out (from reading our guidebook) that we were so close to so many different wonderful food shops and markets. Since we love food, and we would be cooking several meals at the apartment this was great. Apartment just the right size for us. The price was good for us, we could not have afforded to spend more money on a different apartment, although the access was a bit difficult with a small child.

Located on 5th floor so noise from the streets below barely reached us with balcony doors closed. Roof terrace equipped with shower and sun tanning beds was really nice for chilling.

The apartment was in the center of the action in El Born, very much as described, and reasonably priced. When we reported things that were out of place or in disrepair, Friendly Rentals was VERY responsive. A repairman was sent the very next day and took care of many items. I would definitely book with Friendly Rentals again based on their excellent, caring service.

Roof terrace - Sun-trap during the day, and great to chill out there with a glass of wine in the evening. Cleanliness - Flat was very clean on arrival, and in great condition Shower - Very powerful shower, big fan!
