**BEST LOCATION IN THE BORN**

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

Hello, I live in the province of Girona and often go to Barcelona for concerts and the art museums.

Diana Dion-Arivas purchased this apartment in 2003

I love Barcelona's ancient center and wanted to have my own pied à terre in the heart of this vibrant and fascinating area.

Staying in El Born has so many benefits. Great restaurants, fantastic museums and easy access to the airport.

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!

FANTASTIC APARTMENT & LOCATION

Fantastic Apartment & Location
  • 5 out of 5
This apartment could not have been more perfect. Coordination leading up to the trip was excellent. The property is professionally managed and the folks at Barcelona Luxury Rentals proactively contacted us weeks before our vacation to sort out all the details. They had a driver waiting for us at the airport and a native english speaker waiting to check us into the apartment. With regard to the apartment itself, "luxury" is an apt moniker. The space was meticulously clean, modern and well appointed with everything in flawless working order. The beds were comfortable and we found it very quiet and peaceful at night. The location is absolutely ideal, right in the heart of The Born and minutes from two metro stations. I frequently travel for business and am fortunate to generally stay in nicer hotels. This apartment matches or exceeds luxury hotel room standards while providing more space, a functional kitchen and the cultural benefit of being immersed in a neighborhood as opposed to a tourist oriented hotel. When we return to Barcelona, we'll stay here again with no hesitation.

FABULOUS APARTMENT!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! This apartment was truly great -- the location, the apartment itself and the people that welcomed us to Barcelona. I stayed there with my two grown sons and it was very comfortable and in a great location.

We loved the view, the nearby cafes, and the overall ambiance. From the first contact to book this apartment, it was easy and smooth.

I'd highly recommend staying here for your trip to Barcelona.

WEEKEND IN BORN

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! We couldn't have asked for a better rental for our long weekend in Barcelona. The apartment was in a tremendous location-close to everything we wanted. Rachel and the mgmt. made check in & checkout very convenient. We'd definitely recommend this property!
