Ciutat Vella studio description

Nearest Subway station: JAUME I

Cozy 30 sq mt loft, recently updated with high quality furniture. Wood beamed ceilings & a cool ambience makes for an extremely inviting getaway. A small balcony overlooks this quiet, pedestrian-only street in the heart of Barcelona’s fashionable Born district.

El Born is the quaintest and quietest neighborhood within the Gothic district. Its meandering, medieval streets are not just lined with history, but also boutiques, tapas bars and gourmet restaurants. Its plazas offer you outdoor eating and a place to ponder what life must have been like here in the Middle Ages.

Breathtaking palaces and museums (Picasso, Costume History) are just steps away. The Palau de la Musica, The Ramblas, The Boqueria Market, The Plaza Reial and even the beach are within an easy walking distance.

A 3-minute walk to the subway at Jaume I, to the Picasso Museum and 5 minutes to St. Caterina Market.

Keywords: Studio. 2nd floor no elevator in a charming old town building. Wood beams. Nice atmosphere.
