Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in La Ribera El Borne
This cute apartment is on the second floor (without elevator) of a restored ancient building. The entire building and the apartments have been recently renovated. You can find stone walls in the stairs of the building, rustic wooden beams in the studio and all combined with modern and comfortable furniture.
The studio is fully equipped: dinning area for two or four, TV, DVD, air conditioning, full kitchen with all the amenities needed (dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, ironing board, iron) washing machine and dryer, linen, towels, a bathroom and a comfortable double bed and a double sofa bed and all distributed in a bright and spacious place. There is a good WI-FI internet connection and double glazing windows.
The main advantage of the studio is the location, in the Born district, near everything: museums, the Gothic Quarter, Ramblas and Plaça Catalunya, even you have a short walk to the beach (Barceloneta). The apartment is in the middle of the historical center, the heart of Barcelona. You can reach most of the places of interest within easy walking distance.
'El Born' is the trendiest neighborhood in Barcelona, full of wonderful cafés, bars and restaurants and many nice but pricey boutiques.

About Mar Mellado
I'm from Barcelona, I love my city. I'm an apartment owner listed on VRBO and I also manage this apartment because a friend of mine asked me to do it. I love this job and I love to help you to find the best place to spend your holidays.
Why Mar Mellado chose La Ribera El Borne
My friend inherited the building from relatives and he refurbished it from top to bottom. Now it is a very comfortable and nice place, very bright and spacious and with everything you can need to make your stay perfect. The location is really good. I'm sure you'll enjoy the place.
What makes this apartment unique
It's an old building with vaulted ceilings, warm wooden beams, now totally refurbished. It's a bright and nice place with a relaxing atmosphere.
Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartment in Candelas was absolutely great. You can’t get more centrally located, really. Whether you want to have great tapas out or explore Mercat Santa Caterina to buy stuff to cook up your own (using the excellently equipped kitchenette), it’s all here. And the place is clean, well cared for, and absolutely comfortable. The hosts are wonderful and attentive, so no problem there with info or orientation. Lots of corner shops right close by and a kebab place right downstairs at the corner (for a bedtime snack on your late nite trek back home). The place is cozy in two ways - it’s not hugely spacious, so don’t expect a multi-room suite, and the neighbours are close across the narrow street, but this all adds to the feel of being “in Barcelona” for real. Seriously, I cannot think of a downside to the place. Book it!
