We stayed here during our honeymoon. We were greeted with a bottle of Cava by the hosts in celebration, which was very kind of Alfonso and Vanessa.
The apartment really is in the heart of Born. The hustle and bustle of the neighborhood, tourists, nearby restaurants, and performers is audible from the living room. We didn't mind it, but some people might.
We were about a 15 minute walk from Barceloneta Beach, a short walk to the bus, surrounded by tempting tapas spots, coffee shops, gelato stands, and wonderful shopping. We love to walk around to explore cities, and this spot allowed us to see a lot of the city on foot.
The apartment is not really the type of spot where you would plan on just hanging out during the day. It's spartan, which was great with us. No TV. We happened to visit during a heat wave, and their was no A/C. There were fans, but it was hot at night.
Overall, we loved staying here. It was simple to find. It offered us endless choices for food, drink, and entertainment. Born is a super neighborhood with some trendy spots along with some holes in the wall/dive bars. We would stay in this apartment again if we could. No regrets.
