Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Ribera El Borne
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Elegant two bedroom/60m2 apartment in Plaça de Les Olles, one of the most unspoiled pedestrian squares in Barcelona's renowned 'El Born'.
The Born is the historic area between Barcelona's city park (Ciutadella) and the Gothic Quarter and is home to the famous Picasso Museum. The best tapas in the city line the narrow streets of El Born, juxtaposed amongst cosy cafes and exclusive boutiques.
Everything is just a short walk away: Santa Maria del Mar, one of the famous gothic cathedrals of Old Barcelona is virtually on the doorstep; the Port Vell, Barcelona's Old Port, is just a five minute stroll away, halfway to the beaches, bars and restaurants of Barceloneta. From the Port Vell, take the cable car to the Spanish Village on Montjuich where you will also find the Miro Museum. Las Ramblas, the colorful tree-lined promenade which connects the Colombus Column to Plaza Catalunya, is only a 10 minute walk.
The apartment is on the third floor of a small modern building with elevator. It is fully equipped to provide every comfort. You will feel right at home with cable TV, DVD, WiFi, fully equipped kitchen including Nespresso machine, washer/dryer/iron and ironing board. Fully air conditioned throughout. We even provide a computer for you to check your emails.
The living room balcony overlooks the colorful pedestrian square with its cafes and boutiques. And, best of all, the two double bedrooms are located at the back of the apartment, allowing for a peaceful night's sleep.
Getting around is a breeze: there are two metro stations within a five minute walk; the Touristic Bus stops just off the Plaza and taxis and busses are plentiful, allowing easy access to the airport and train station.
