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.

We had a great time - location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well appointed, well stocked and has everything you need. The only thing that would have helped is a larger second bedroom and two full bathrooms instead of 1 1/2 BUT those were minor concerns. If we travel again to Barcelona, the El Born district is our first choice and we would definitely go back to this apartment again.

It really is the best location in the Born!

  • 4 of 5

Cosy, well appointed apartment in a superb location just 20 metres from one of the best Tapas places in Barcelona (Cal Pep). The onsite manager, Juan, was superb. - he was generous with his time and advice.

The property was perfectly sized and located for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at the apartment. We had already been in Barcelona for a week, but shifted to this location at the end in order to be in a different part of the city. It's convenience to the sea and churches, as well as the charm of the wandering streets, made for a wonderful locale.

Juan provided wonderful service, and came to our rescue when the circuit breaker flipped. Everything was as advertised, and we truly enjoyed our stay.

The El Born is a great area!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely and surrounded by good and inexpensive tapas cafes making cooking in the apartment unnecessary except for breakfast. It is not super equipt for cooking, but there are plenty to of takeaway places with good food as well. Double pane windows give you plenty of acoustic privacy when you need it but the balcony the shutters and windows can all open for a real feel for the neighborhood. It's a lovely apartment and we hate to leave Barcelona. Thanks for a great stay.

Loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect.

We appreciated the property managers arranging transportation to and from the airport for us, the warm and attentive reception with an on-site property manager who walked us through accessing the building and using the apartment's appliances, the fresh fruit and cava on the dining room table to welcome us to Catalunya when we arrived, the cleanliness and furnishings of the apartment, and especially the absolutely perfect location--just meters from some of the best restaurants, museums, cathedrals and cultural centers in El Born but tucked into a quiet and picturesque pedestrian plaza (read: no cars!). We will be sure to recommend the property to friends, and if we make it back anytime soon, we'll want to stay here again.

Wonderful apartment in the Born

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed for a week in this delightful apartment in the Born. It was a perfect place to stay. The location is ideal. You have wonderful shops and restaurants steps away. The apartment has comfortable and attractive furnishings. We used the washer and dryer which was very handy. The balcony off the living room is really fantastic to see the calmness of the square early in the morning and the excitement of people walking around and eating at the restaurants below in the evening. Juan greeted us upon our arrival and was very friendly and helpful in showing us the apartment and giving us general information on Barcelona. Our entire vacation experience was outstanding in large part because of this wonderful apartment. I would not hesitate to come back!
