WELCOME TO OUR 3 BEDROOM APARTMENT IN EL BORN IN THE HISTORICAL CENTER OF BARCELONA:

This three bedroom flat is located in the central Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona with a unique location across from the recently rebuilt Mercat de Santa Caterina. This market is not only a recent addition to the body of architectural landmarks in the city, but a place to sample top quality local produce. The flat is on the corner of a building with a protected façade as an important part of architectural history.

This apartment has three separated bedrooms with balconies / windows (one double bedroom and the other 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each that can be together or separated). There is air conditioning and central heating in all the bedrooms and in the living-room. All the balconies are completely isolated with double glass.

The quality of the accommodation and the impecable personalized service are the advantages that make this property perfect for clients looking for an exceptional holiday right in the historical center of Barcelona.

Parking: there are several parkings nearby. Please let us know if you are coming by car to inform you about parking facilities. It's important to know if you are going to use your car or not during your stay in order to give you an accurate information of the most suitable and economical parking.

THE APARTMENT IS LOCATED IN EL BORN AREA IN THE HISTORICAL CENTER:

El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city.

El Born isn't just about the nightlife, there is plenty of culture to be had as well. It can be seen that Calle Montcada was also a medieval street, which is now home to the Picasso museum and the Textile Museum which has a great little café with a terrace attached to it. The textile museum is located here because in Born's early days it was home to the textile guilds of Barcelona. There is also a beautiful cathedral which you can wander around in, sometimes even when there is a wedding going on!

Nowadays people are attracted to El Born for the shopping which consists of some beautiful but pricey boutiques and shoe shops which are great to find that one-off piece.

El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same yellow line. Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minute walk away.

The beach is also just a 10 minute walk away so you can have both a beach holiday and a city break in one. Plus you are quite close to the Parc Ciutadella which is a relaxing place to sit in the afternoon and watch the hippies play their bongos. The Barcelona zoo is also located in Parc Ciutadella.

As you can see El Born is perfect for families as well as tourists. Noise could sometimes be a problem depending on where you are but it's not as bad as in the very centre of town. It is a picturesque and cultural part of the city with a vibrant café culture and bar scene.

The location is just a short walk from the fashionable El Born area including one of the most exciting tourist attractions in the city: the Museu Picasso and the Palau de la Música Catalana, a leading concert hall - World Heritage Site by UNESCO -. Walking to the Barri Gotic is a quick affair and the famous street of Las Ramblas is just 10 min. away on foot. Most of the city's main attractions (including the Gaudí works of Palau Guell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milá and La Sagrada Familia) and relaxing beaches are within walking distance or a short subway ride away.

Minimum capacity 2/3 people. Regular capacity 4/5 people. Maximum capacity for 5/6 people.

Cleaning fee (apartment, linen and towels). We provide sheets and towels.

About Licy and Jacob

We are Elizabeth and Jacob. We speak English, French, Spanish and Catalan.

We have always enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and that's why a few years ago we started offering our apartment to people who want to come to Barcelona to have a nice experience.

We like what we do!!! :)

*I and my husband Jacob are the real owners of the apartment. We are not an agency or representatives of the owners. Then, we are involved and we take care directly with our guests in case of any need or help.

*Our apartment is located in a nice area in El Born in the historical center. It’s not easy to find a quiet place in the middle of everywhere (Aquarium, Chocolate Museum, Picasso Museum, etc.).

*Our apartment is located in a corner of a building which means there is a lot of natural light. It has 4 exterior balconies.

*We accept credit card except the cleaning fee. I mean we accept credit card for sure. No surprise on arrival.

*Our apartment is a legal holiday apartment with license from the Government of Catalunya.

Licy and Jacob purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Licy and Jacob chose Ciutat Vella

We bought this property because we love Barcelona. We have this property here in 'El Born' in Barcelona city center because it's a nice place to stay for a few days as it's calm and comfortable and also it's a great point from where you can have access to the main attractions.

What makes this apartment unique

From our property, which is located right next to the prestigious 'Mercat de Santa Caterina', you can experience living in the origin of Barcelona. As it's in the corner of a building there is a lot of natural light. Also, there are no words to explain the feeling of relaxing in this great apartment. Then, you can take a real Spanish Siesta.

Great hosts and a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Even after 4 airport delays Jacob was at the apartment to welcome us at midnight. We couldn't have hoped for better hosts. The location of the apartment is very central which makes it easy to walk to many of the attractions. We also appreciated having access to a washer and dryer. The kitchen is comfortable and well equipped. The only downside to the apartment is the small living room...one couch and the kitchen chairs. We enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment.

Charming apartment in unbeatable location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located directly behind the Mercado de Santa Caterina in the fabulous Born District. Short walk on winding tapas bar lined cobble stone streets and alleys to Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalanya and Barcelonetta. Just steps from the building is the incredible Mercado and numerous cafes and bars for coffee in the morning or tapas in the evening. The apartment is on the third floor of small older style building (no elevator), but the simply furnished apartment has been modernized with a nice bathroom and kitchen area. The apartment has beds to sleep 6 people, but the living area is just the one room which triples as the kitchen, dining room and living room. I travelled with my two young adult sons, and it was perfect for our needs, with each of us having our own room, but 6 people might feel cramped.

As previously mentioned, the apartment faces the market and square in a neighborhood where "real people" live, so the sounds of the neighborhood are easily heard in the morning as people head out to work, take the kids to school, or start up their motor scooters, but that's why people choose to stay in an apartment instead of a generic hotel in some tourist district. When I went out to the nearest cafe for my morning cafe con leche, I was the only tourist in the place and there was no menu in English. It was exactly how I wanted it. The host Elizabeth was responsive to every email and we were met by her husband at 8:00 am outside of the apartment on the morning of our arrival and we were welcomed into the apartment with no issues at all. Good luck checking into a hotel at 8:00 a.m. They are people of their word who can surely to trusted to deliver on any promise they make, and the apartment is exactly as advertised and a great value for the money.

The perfect base for exploring Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

Jaesse was a fantastic host, and his apartment was exactly what we needed to explore such a great city. The location is perfect, the apartment was spacious, very clean and we made good use of the hammock. The shower was powerful and the bed very comfortable. Jaesse was very accommodating. Jaesse met us as soon as we arrived and formalised the stay - they are a more legitimate and safer host than some others, and he and his wife operate numerous apartments. Jaesse also offered us some recommendations of places to go, which were great. I cannot rate Jaesse and his apartment high enough!

The location in the El Born neighborhood is excellent.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as advertised and better than we could have imagined. Very spacious, clean, well equipped and a perfect location. Everything was in working condition. Elizabeth and Jacob were excellent in communicating prior to the arrival and throughout our stay. They assisted with cabs to the airport and made additional recommendations as well. I hope that I will have the opportunity to come back soon. Thanks!
