Overview

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.

Keywords: Elegant, quiet two bedroom/1 and a half bath apartment with balcony

Very good experience

  • 5 out of 5
I would echo all of the comments here.

The apartment was great, had a nice layout, with some separation between the living area and the two bedrooms, which was nice. Everything felt clean and new, and worked properly.

The location is absolutely perfect. Neighbourhood is safe at night.

Communications with the manager were also excellent. They were able to delay checkout with no notice (we had a flight delay), which was much appreciated.

Would stay here again, and would recommend to others.

Best place to stay in Barcelona!

  • 5 out of 5
It is a fabulous apartment, great neighborhood, close to many great restaurants and nice areas, “las ramblas”, and few blocks of “El Gotico”, 5 min walk to the restaurants by the port… plus a great reception and service from Rachel as well helping us arranging a taxi from the airport to the apartment, she welcomed us gave us a tour of the apartment showing us how everything worked.
Apartment full equipped, clean and with many amenities, will recommend it 100%... definitely when I come back to Barcelona will stay here again!!
THANKS Rachel for taking care of us!!!

A great apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is as good as advertised-spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The owners representative was very helpful-organizing taxi service to and from airport and providing recommendations for sight seeing. The location is tereffic-right in the old town on a courtyard with 4 restaurants (including Cal-Pep!) and a short walk to the beach. I highly recommend this rental.

Great Apartment, Great Location, All Amenities

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment was the absolute perfect place to us and we can't imagine it not being perfect for any other couple. For starters, the owners and their staff are friendly, english speaking and very flexible to your needs. Diana helped make our trip easier by providing all the services and international traveller would need from car service waiting at the airport, to detailed write up about Barcelona's attractions and restaurants to providing all the amenities you need within the apartment, even more than what you would get in a hotel (from guide books, to beach towels, to shampoos, to electrical converters). The apartment itself ended up being in an ideal location of Born. This old city provides easy access to every tourist area of the city and the beaches. It was only a few blocks from the Metro. Our biggest concern was safety and that was not an issue. The neighborhood is young, vibrant and people are around at all hours yet this apartment is as quiet as it can be. Great sleeping conditions. Everything was modern, everything worked well. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 baths makes for a great place for a couple, a couple with kids or 2 couples. Having access to in unit laundry was a perfect. Best of all, the location within the beautiful square of Les Olles makes you feel like you are part of the cultural scene. When we return to Barcelona, which we will, this will be the apartment we stay in.

Extraordinary location and comfort

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I absolutely loved this apartment. We stayed for four days and it was the perfect place for us. Quiet on the inside but right in the heart of the action. Three good restaurants within 20 feet of the front door and one of the best restaurants in Barcelona (Cal Pep) about 40 feet away. We were able to easy walk to Barceloneta, El Raval and the Sant Marti neighborhoods and of course throughout El Born. The staff was outstanding and we felt taken care of and appreciated from beginning to end. Loved the place and would stay there again in a heart beat . . . . . . in fact I am trying to figure out how to get back there as soon as possible.

The Best of Barcelona

  • 5 out of 5
WOW, loved the location of this apartment...right in el Born. Plus, the flat was totally first class and Diana and her team provided wonderful service! I can't say enough about the overall quality of this stay, from the bath supplies to the welcome gift to the willingness of the team to support my arrival schedule. The flat was luxurious, super clean and quiet! It was absolutely one of the very best VRBO's I have enjoyed. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
