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.

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!

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.
