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

The apartment was perfect. It was perfectly appointed with everything we needed and was very clean.
We loved the apartment and the location. It was walking distance to most of Barcelona. On a lovely Plaza, but quiet. Near everything! We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. Juan and Claudia were both friendly and helpful. Overall-a wonderful experience.
Comfortable and immaculate apartment. Not only is it the best location in the Born, it’s the best location in all of Barcelona!
Juan , the apartment manager couldn’t have been more helpful, and Claudia, the owner was very responsive throughout the entire booking process.
Highly recommend , and we can’t wait to return!
Great location, nice apartment
This is a well-located apartment in the Born neighborhood, which is very close to several restaurants and bars. However, it is very quiet, which is very important in Barcelona, where people party until late. It is a short walk to the Barceloneta metro station, making it easy to get around.
The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and modern, with all the amenities you would need including kitchenware and tools. The two rooms are next to each other, and there is a full bathroom right next to a half bathroom in the hall. This arrangement worked out fine for two people. I would much rather stay at this property vs. a hotel, and will book it again when I return to Barcelona. I recommend this property without reservations.
Also, the property management team is very professional, accessible and friendly.
Fantastic location, great 2-bedroom apartment
Easy to get to and great location. 3rd floor (4th in the US) so the elevator was great. Well stocked although some paper towels would have made clean up easier (its a USA thing). Although in the Borne, it was quiet and secure. Apartment manager met us upon arrival and explained everything well, very pleasant fellow. He also set up our departure taxi and arrived at the apartment for departure on time. Shower was wonderful (a big point for me) although I had to make sure I didn't use up all the hot water. Excellent Tapas across the plaza.
Quiet seclusion right in the thick of things.
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
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.
