Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Ribera El Borne - Vintage 2

2 bd 2 br apartment in the city center

An Unforgettable opportunity to experience Barcelona staying in a charming 17th century building once a palace.

This Unique 2 en-suite bedrooms apartment has lots of history in it. It has been renovated in 2012 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.

Each bedroom has a very comfortable and top quality queen bed. One master bedroom has two very artistic handmade bed side tables done with the original hydraulic tiles of the flat. It also has a lounge area with sofa.

The bathrooms are a state of art. One with an amazing rock made washing hands basin and exposed stonewalls.

You have also your fully equipped kitchen to cook as a chef. It has dishwasher and first class electrical appliances. The living room can accommodate two extra people on its sofa bed. There is a large refurbished table that seats 6 people and a very nice wing chair next to the fire place. We also have here two additional tables made with the original hydraulic tiles that once where covering the floors of this unit.

Wood beams, exposed stone walls refurbished furniture such as a piano from the beginning of the last century

mixed with high quality materials used for the renovation makes this apartment a five starts experience.

We also give an exquisite treatment to our guest with a full concierge service while you stay in Barcelona.

The apartment is located in a narrow cosy and safe street in el Barri del born (quarter) half block from the famous Palau de la Música Catalana (Music Palace), Santa Caterina Market, the Cathedral and the Museo Picasso and just 5 minutes on foot to Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas and Santa Maria del Mar church. You just need to cross Via Laietana to be in the Gothic quarter where you can have some yummy Spanish tapas and walk a few blocks up to visit the charming Art Nouveau buildings of Gaudí. It’s ideal for vacations or business.

Incredible Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This has taken me much longer to get around to writing than it should have as our stay in the Apartment was absolutely fantastic. We were a family of five and couldn't have had a better stay in Barcelona. The location was fabulous, very safe and close to many restaurants. Victor was a perfect host and we hired his father Miguel for two days for walking tours. We saw so much of Barcelona and got a much better feel for the city than if we had stayed in a hotel. Going to the Sagrada Familia with Miguel was a highlight of our stay. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to immerse themselves in Barcelona and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

great home base for touring Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

The property is just as described on line. It's clean, quiet, comfortable and most of all conveniently located. You get a great feel for living in Barcelona. This is one of the better VRBO properties we have rented. Victor and his associates were very easy to deal with.

Great Apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was beautifully restored and had all the modern amenities. As the four of us stayed for six nights, having two separate bathrooms was a big plus. The apartment was clean and well maintained just as it was represented in the listing photos.

As far as location the apartment couldn't have been more centrally located to all of the main sites: museums, churches, shopping, restaurants, sea shore. Nearly everything that we wanted to see was within easy walking distance.

One of the best features of the apartment was our host, Victor, who was readily available via email, text or phone for any questions that we had. Victor provided us with restaurant recommendations, arranged for taxis, and provided entertainment suggestions. He is extremely friendly and helpful.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to have a great experience in "old" Barcelona.

Absolutely delightful time...perfect for 4 of us

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly wonderful--up high, overlooking a charming walking street, nearby wonderful restaurants, the Born area, a huge delightful market, everything you might need on hand, including large refrigerator, dishwasher, 2 bathrooms, and a washing machine with clothespins (on the deck!). Having stayed in other high-end VRBO places in Paris and Rome recently, I can say without a doubt that this is the best apartment we've ever had. The owner-Victor-is an absolute gem, having had to deal with our daughter's lost luggage (Air France, what can I say?) in an expert and timely way (thanks Victor!), and even replacing our feather pillows immediately with excellent new fiber ones the next day after we inquired about it (due to allergies). I cannot say anything better about this place--it fit the four of us adults nicely, and the layout even allows for some privacy, which is yet an extra bonus. The remodeled place has a distinctly "Born" area feel to it, which reflects the architecture and culture of the surrounding area. Barcelona beaches, museums, and wonderful sights are just steps away. And, the place is amazingly quiet at night. I can't wait to go back.
