Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4), 30 day minimum stay.

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.

Keywords: Elegant, quiet two bedroom/1 and a half bath apartment with balcony, 30 day minimum stay.

Quiet seclusion right in the thick of things.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a perfect base for our 12 day stay in Barcelona. Walking distance to pretty much anywhere in the old parts of town, plus Barceloneta and the port. Very close to public transport for buses, Metro and trains to get everywhere else. Everything you need is in the El Born area - markets, shops, restaurants and cafes. Our stay included the Catalonia independence referendum, and the general strike and demonstrations in the week following, so it was a very interesting time to be in Barcelona. From this base, we felt very much a part of it all. Checking in and out was effortless and well handled by Juan, plus taxi arrangements to the airport on departure. We recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Barcelona.

Fantastic apartment in the Born District

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this apartment is it's great location. Anything in the Born is in walking distance as is Citudela Park, the beach, the Cathedral and literally hundreds of restaurants, cafes, bars and stores. The apartment is also very quiet which is unusual for Barcelona. There is a nice view of the Plaza de Olles from the small front balcony. Though the apartment is not large there is great separation between the two bedrooms and the kitchen and living room. The apartment is very well maintained and is very clean. Both Claudia,the manager in charge of reservations as well as Juan the manager who lives nearby are very friendly and very efficient. The instructions for the aprtment were very clear. The wifi and air conditioning work very well. The free local phone was very convenient for making reservations at the many great nearbye restaurants. A small shelving unit would be a nice addition to the second half bathroom. I highly recommend this aprtment and we are already planning on returning next year.

It was a perfect location in the center of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Restaurants, grocery stores and souvenirs shops were within a few short steps of the apartment location. An easy walk to las ramblas, the beach, the port and many other touristic attractions. Very highly recommended stay as we found the place to be exceptionally clean and accommodating with bathroom and kitchen essentials. Hope to make another trip along with a few other cities in Spain and will stay there again if available!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I stayed at this lovely apartment for four nights in late August and really enjoyed our visit. It is well located and perfectly sized for three to four people. Juan promptly greeted us and showed us the apartment and kindly arranged for a taxi for our departure.

Although in a tourist area, the apartment was quiet, allowing for a restful night after long days of activity.

Beautiful apartment. Ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is beautiful, comfortable and in a perfect location. We loved being in the El Born district with good restaurants, great shopping, quiet plazas, and charm/character everywhere you looked. Picasso museum steps away. Cathedral, Gottic quarter, Palau de la Musica Catalana, beach, and Las Ramblas within 15 minute walk. Apartment in a very nice and safe building. Importantly, quiet at night so we all got a good night's sleep. Highly recommend!
