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.

Fantastic location in Pla Palau

  • 5 of 5

Although we spent a little more on this rental than we had intended, Barcelona was our last stop on a 2 week tour around Spain and we were so happy to see such a lovely apartment! The location was stellar for us! We LOVED walking right out into the square leading down into shopping and museums. The Picasso museum was a 2 minute walk and the fantastic Santa Caterina market was a scenic 5-10 minute walk down the same alley. A convenience store was right around the corner for grocery staples. Barceloneta was also just a 15 minute walk away. Juan met us before and after, and was very friendly, helpful and professional. We would not hesitate to recommend this property!

What a perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The best apartment in the best location. We loved every minute of our stay in the El Born area of Barcelona. Juan was a gracious host and gave us plenty of advice of places to eat and things to do for our 4 day stay. Everything about our stay could not be better. We will return.

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in this apartment in Barcelona, two adults and two kids. Loved the location, apt was clean, well stocked with items you may need and quiet. Space is smart, not huge but plenty of space for four of us and we weren't there all that much anyway! We walked or took the bus all over the city. Went to a little market nearby for groceries for morning breakfast. Everything you need is very close- grocery, wine, atm, bus/metro, restaurants, and sites. Making apartment reservation and questions regarding our stay were answered quickly and thoroughly. Would stay here again without hesitation. We loved the El Born area, and recommend this apartment.

Definitely best location!!

  • 5 of 5

Diana made the whole process of booking this apartment easy, she had a taxi waiting at the airport on our arrival. we were met at the apartment by Juan who went over details of the apartment and surrounding area even offered us to call him if we had any questions and offered to take out trash and recyclables. We were given a list of restaurants many which we had opportunity to try. We also had a taxi arranged for our departure. Our vacation was perfect. Apartment was cozy and as shown in pictures. The square was inviting, .people friendly and we had easy access to taxis. The apartment was the perfect place to stay while visiting Barcelona and would encourage other travelers to stay here!
