Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Elegant two bedroom/60m2 apartment in Pla de Palau, 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.

Wonderful stay in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic time in Barcelona, and Diana's hospitality and beautiful apartment were a big part of the experience. We were welcomed at the airport and at the apartment, Juan provided excellent information and suggestions about our stay, and we were picked up for our return to the airport. The apartment's amenities were generous and provided everything we needed, plus a delightful welcome basket from Diana. The location was perfect, right in the middle of everything and an easy walk to shopping, sightseeing and even the beach (which we enjoyed in December!). BTW, if you run out of Nespresso pods (I'm an addict), you can buy more at the big department store on Las Ramblas; they have a Nespresso kiosk near the front entrance.

Great location and space

Spotless. Very convenient. Furniture and bedding dated, thus only four stars. Liked our stay very much

Wonderful property, perfect location, gracious hosts. What's not to like?

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, it was a very easy stay. Diana took care of all the arrangements, including ordering a taxi from the airport. Juan met us at the flat and walked us through everything we needed to know about the apartment and the location. The unit has been updated and is lovely. The best feature is having the balcony which looks over the square, but having the bedrooms in the rear where it is quiet. The apartment has good ventilation. The bedrooms are satisfactory (one is a little on the small side if used by adults). All in all, a fantastic stay - would love to do it again some day.

Fabulous location, fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The location was perfect: it has a quiet residential feel but is located in a sophisticated and hip part of the city. Wonderful restaurants and interesting boutiques abound. Museums within walking distance. Loved walking through the gothic quarter and the city park. The apartment is clean, spacious and well-equipped. The owners provided bathrobes and elegant soaps and lotions, which made it feel like a hotel. The balcony looks on a quiet pedestrian square with outdoor seating for two tapas restaurants and where a solo guitarist serenaded every evening. We would want to stay here again!

Great location/Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 visiting from the U.S. enjoyed staying at this apartment in March, 2017. The location was convenient and the apartment was well appointed. Juan was welcoming and we really enjoyed the wine and truffles that were waiting for us. The beds, pillows, linens and towels were of good quality. The bathrooms were updated nicely. We packed extremely light because we are touring much of Spain so having a washer and dryer was a definite plus.
