A GEM AT THE BEST OF THE HISTORICAL CENTRE. LOW MONTHLY RATES

Photos and Description of this holiday studio in La Ribera El Borne

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

EL BORN

Nearest Subway station: JAUME I

Cozy 30 sq mt loft, recently updated with high quality furniture. Wood beamed ceilings & a cool ambience makes for an extremely inviting getaway. A small balcony overlooks this quiet, pedestrian-only street in the heart of Barcelona’s fashionable Born district.

El Born is the quaintest and quietest neighborhood within the Gothic district. Its meandering, medieval streets are not just lined with history, but also boutiques, tapas bars and gourmet restaurants. Its plazas offer you outdoor eating and a place to ponder what life must have been like here in the Middle Ages.

Breathtaking palaces and museums (Picasso, Costume History) are just steps away. The Palau de la Musica, The Ramblas, The Boqueria Market, The Plaza Reial and even the beach are within an easy walking distance.

A 3-minute walk to the subway at Jaume I, to the Picasso Museum and 5 minutes to St. Caterina Market.

Keywords: Studio. 2nd floor no elevator in a charming old town building. Wood beams. Nice atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Je viens de rentrer d'un super séjour dans cet appartement. L'accueil de Miguel est chaleureux; l'appartement est conforme au descriptif donné. Le plus extraordinaire est son emplacement. Le quartier est très agréable, très vivant (mais la rue est calme). Tout le vieux Barcelone est à portée de pieds et à deux pas il y a station de métro et bus pour nous emmener où nous voulons. Je conseille plutôt les bus car les changements dans les grosses stations de métro sont longs. Épiceries, bars, etc. au bas de la porte et pour ceux qui ont envie de cuisiner le marché Ste Catherine est à 5/6 mn à pied (j'ai préféré d’ailleurs ce marché à celui de la Boqueria très connu et seulement à 1/4 heure à pied) Bref un excellent séjour que je renouvellerai si j'en ai l'occasion

In my 60s. Job: video director. Love travelling all over the world. Fond of doing as host to travellers and giving advises and information about this special city. Cooking and wine tasting amateur.

Miguel purchased this studio in 2001

I'm barcelonian and love my city. I've been living in the area for more than 10 years and I always had the feeling that walking around just to get some fruit or milk is like a daily present. There is a unique atmosphere in the old streets around. The studio is redecorated every few years improving the interior, amenities and atmosphere. There is a guest book in the apartment and 100% of remarks are positive. This is a place made as if I went abroad I'd like to get something like that to live in.

The space itself is a very pleasant place to stay with all kind of amenities you could need.

Within 2 minutes walking you can get:

-Sta Maria del Mar a Gothic Church of the XIV century

-Picasso Museum

- Step distance to top restaurants

-Beautiful medieval streets with arty shops, cool fashion stores, a nice train station, a green park with museums and a Zoo

-Vila Viniteca: A wine store with more than 3000 spanish wines. Experts shop assistants.

-Colmado Vila A delicatessen food store (in front of the wine store)

-a long long beach with showers, bars, sailing activities (at 10 minutes walking)

Great location, comfortable studio

  • 5 out of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay. Could not ask for a better location for access to the city, metro and many great sites just a short walk. Shops, bars, etc. at the door step. Cannot wait to return. We have already recommended the property to others.

Amazing Location ~ Loved it!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Barcelona and this apartment was perfect, location, supplies and amenities. The apartment was spotless and it had everything we needed. We loved how close we were to wonderful restaurants and great sightseeing opportunities. I would highly recommend this rental. My only note would be potential renters should be able bodied, there are 37 steps to the apartment door...great workout after all the wonderful food we found in a beautiful city.

Tranquil retreat close to everything

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 6 days and I must say it was hard to leave. Miguel, the owner, offers a tranquil studio apartment with everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel, but better! He has thought of everything a traveler would need, maps, guidebooks, recommendations ,etc. The studio is very comfortable and quite. The space is perfect size for two. Amazing open floor plan with sitting and sleeping area separated with the perfect amount of storage/closet space. Very comfortable bed and sitting area. We enjoyed sitting in the living room area with the windows open to the terrace, made us feel like locals. Well-appointed kitchen with everything you would need. The location is perfect. Close to everything in the El Born and Gothic Quarter. Wonderful places to eat, shop, plus jamon & wine shop right around the corner. Our next trip to Barcelona we will be staying here again. Thank you Miguel for all your attention to the details.

Comfortable & convenient

A great, exciting area and a pleasant apartment. If you are norteamericano like us, and have trouble sleeping after a meal at the Spanish late-opening restaurants, your ideal solution is to have your large meal in the afternoon, and then a few tapas later. El Born's tapas bars are open long hours. Or even just a bit of bread, cheese, fruit, and wine in your kitchen. Miguel's apartment is ideal for either of those plans. Miguel was very accommodating in allowing us to stay past the usual checkout time. We're going back again, for the only two free nights before we fly to London.

This cute little apartment was perfect for our 3 night stay in Barcelona. The space was clean and very well equipped. The location was perfect for getting down to the beach or walking around the old city. Also very close to the subway which was very safe. We were able to buy food and wine at the local market and bring it back to the room. We spoke to Miguel on the phone but his son met us in the apartment on our arrival. He was very helpful with any questions we had. Our only criticism was that we wished we had two keys because it was hard for us to go off separately and meet back at the apartment with just one key. We would come back here again!!

El Born at its Best

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful apartment that I will stay in again. It is close to everything, and Mar was easily reachable for any questions. I highly recommend it. Clean, quiet, and comfortable. By our second evening, I was referring to it as home.
