EXQUISITE RENOVATED FLAT-FULL OF HISTORY IN THE CITY CENTER. LAST MIN AUG23-SEP6

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Ribera El Borne - Exquisite flat in city center

2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12 (convined 449548)

An Unforgettable opportunity to experience Barcelona, staying in a charming 17th century building once a palace. This Unique two bedroom two bath apartment has lots of history in it. It was renovated in 2009 by an extremely sensitive architect that mixed the old art of the building with comfortable areas (that are going to make your vacation very special). It has 4 m high ceilings with wood beams, stonewalls, hydraulic mosaic tiles.

The master bedroom is equipped with its own double rain shower and basin. The shower has lots of history - its walls are covered with a 100-year-old double wood door and it has a unique Murano glass lamp. The other bedroom keeps the original hydraulic floor, which is a true piece of art. There is an additional bathroom with its impressive shower located where once was the stone entrance of the palace. The NEW third additional bathroom has design toilet and washing hands basin (built in December 2011 with lots of style and avant-grade)

You also have your fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and first class electrical appliances. The living room can accommodate two extra people on its sofa bed. There is also a separate dining room with a Le Corbusier table that fits six people.

This apartment is located below the unit 449548 listed at vrbo/ 449548vb listed at homeaway. In case you are a large group there is the possibility to rent both units with a total capacity of 12.

WE HAVE INSTALLED A NEW DOUBLE SOUNDPROOF WINDOW TO AVOID THE NORMAL NOISE OF A VIBRANT CITY SUCH AS BARCELONA (July 2011).

ADDITIONAL AMENITIES:

* Complementary bottle of Spanish wine and fruit

* Air conditioning and Runtal heating

* High quality Chortex Peremium towels and cotton linens provided (Zara Home and Calvin Kelin)

* Design Furniture in each room

GREAT FLAT, GREAT LOCATION

We stayed with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The flat is in a wonderful location, the beds were comfy and it was nicely appointed. We especially enjoyed our evening drinks on the back deck.

PERFECT LOCATION

This apartment could not have been better located. The cathedral almost within sight, 15 minutes walk to the beach, 15 minutes walk to La Rambla and lots of good restaurants nearby. The apartment is beautifully decorated with some lovely touches.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this flat for a week with friends when we visited Barcelona. The flat was everything promised on this site. The building has a lot of history and is in the heart of the gothic area and close to all the attractions. We loved the terrace in the back and were able to enjoy it every day. Bedrooms were a good size and the flat comfortable for two couples. The neighbourhood is wonderful with a good ice cream shop next door and a large market just around the corner. We would definitely stay here again.

EXQUISITE TASTE IN RIBERA BARCELONA

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Barcelona, in part, due to this 2 bedrooms apartment, renovated and decorated with exquisite taste! We recommend to any seasoned travelers. Perfectly situated, in the Old town, authentic. The owners offered to upgrade us from another apartment (also very nice), so to show us their pride and joy, with no extra charge, and without any demands from us! Amazing.

AMAZING!

  • 5 out of 5
This is such a beautiful flat in the midst of Barcelona. On a beautiful little side street, dripping of history, we have been on the doorstep to everything. We have 3 kids, 5/8/11, and they have loved it too - we have been able to easily walk to everything. The flat is gorgeous, everything is so clean and well thought out with stylish details.The help and information from Victor and Miguel was priceless - we felt cared for and safe, it is like having our own 5* hotel suite! Next time we visit (and we will!) we will return!

  • The architect decided to have a master room with comfort and avant-garde. There is a double glass cabin with rain shower, whose rear side is a double-leaf wood door with its original wrought iron hinges and lock, over 100 years old, on which six coats of marine varnish were applied for total waterproofing. And it also has a 'cabinet' type washbasin with a big mirror, that wasn't there for the pictures. The room has 4 meters high ceilings with wooden beams and the architect didn't accept to have a 'toilet' inside the room (we tried to convince him, but he said that we would definitely ruin the sense of the room). There are another two bathroom one with shower, a cabinet and a toilet with a window and another one with toilet and washing hand basin.
