Great location, challenging neighbors
This apartment was clean, check in was smooth, location was fantastic for our needs. It does not get much natural light, but to a degree that's to be expected in the dense city center. We stayed here in July, so the air conditioning was important for us. Unfortunately, the neighbors are very hostile and seem somewhat crazy. The dropped threatening notes from their balcony saying they were going to call the police and have us evicted for running the air conditioning at night. The management company recommended we turn off the air conditioning at night which we did most nights, but we were not happy with this. We ran the air conditioning for some time one other night and again they threatened to call the police and have us evicted. The management company's response was weird--depending on who you talked to--they also threatened us with eviction in one e-mail, but Alexandra was great--she totally understood that this was not our fault and apologized. Bottom line: If air conditioning is important to you, I would not stay here.

The apartment is in a fantastic location in the Born neighborhood. There are many local restaurants, coffee shops and stores just steps from the front door. The renovations are well done, the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pans, etc. The washer/dryer combo works well, but you are on your own to figure out how to use it, we relied on YouTube. Keep in mind this is a very very old neighborhood, the bathroom and kitchen are clean and updated, but very small. This is typical for the area and part of the charm.
However, we were very disappointed that when we arrived there was scaffolding up on the building, completely covering the lovely windows in the photos and making us slightly uncomfortable from a safety perspective. We were not warned of this situation before arriving. The living room windows were locked with a padlock, which is nice from a safety standpoint, but frustrating as we expected the apartment to look and function like the photos. Instead it was a dark dungeon for our entire stay. Until the final morning, the only day we choose to sleep in on our vacation and they removed the scaffolding and created a ton of noise. The work that was being done caused a thick layer of dust all over the living room. We did not use the living room because of this, and also because the couch was not comfortable for even just 2 people.
The internet went out for about 36 hours while we were there and the dishwasher did not work. I called about the internet, but I believe it just ended up resetting itself as we received a call back a day later asking about it to see if they needed to send someone.
I booked the apartment last fall, and it appears they have increased the price since that time. I think the value was ok for what I spent, but I would not spend what they are charging now.
Good value for the price
Good value for price
Great location in the heart of El Born walking distance to everything you could need
Extra sink is great assist to single bath.
Shower is super small. Oversized people will not fit.
Pillows must be upgraded. Pillow cases odd.
Mattress in living room needs to be replaced.
Noisy at night when theatre breaks and people gather.
Every door in the unit squeaks.
We confirmed 5 guests and paid additional person charge and received one (yes 1) roll of toilet paper.
Location was fabulous
The apartment is right in the heart of El Born on a tiny little pedestrian street, steps away from shops, restaurants, and sites. It was very clean and only one flight of steps to the door. Since the street is so narrow, the buildings across are very close and block the sun for most of the day, which makes the apartment dark. The master bedroom mattress is in dire need of a replacement. I would have rated the property even lower for this reason, but the location still won out on the rating. Finally, bed linens were not quality and towels were also poor - cheap and thin. The second bedroom does not have a window and the bath (shower especially) and kitchen are very small. I would be torn about staying again until upgrades were done with bedding or price was adjusted downward to reflect overall appeal.
