La Ribera El Borne Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12 (convined 449548)

An Unforgettable opportunity to experience Barcelona, staying in a charming 17th century building once a palace. This Unique two bedroom two bath apartment has lots of history in it. It was renovated in 2009 by an extremely sensitive architect that mixed the old art of the building with comfortable areas (that are going to make your vacation very special). It has 4 m high ceilings with wood beams, stonewalls, hydraulic mosaic tiles.

The master bedroom is equipped with its own double rain shower and basin. The shower has lots of history - its walls are covered with a 100-year-old double wood door and it has a unique Murano glass lamp. The other bedroom keeps the original hydraulic floor, which is a true piece of art. There is an additional bathroom with its impressive shower located where once was the stone entrance of the palace. The NEW third additional bathroom has design toilet and washing hands basin (built in December 2011 with lots of style and avant-grade)

You also have your fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and first class electrical appliances. The living room can accommodate two extra people on its sofa bed. There is also a separate dining room with a Le Corbusier table that fits six people.

This apartment is located below the unit 449548 listed at vrbo/ 449548vb listed at homeaway. In case you are a large group there is the possibility to rent both units with a total capacity of 12.

Fantastic Flat

  • 5 of 5
You will LOVE this flat! My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of December 2014. The location is amazing. Great little restaurants with in an easy walk. Metro is also a short stroll...maybe 5 minutes, but you will love the walk. From there get anywhere you want to go. We bought the 4 day all you can ride pass and only used a taxi once (new years eve). Close to the stop for the double decker tour bus which we recommend if you want to learn more about Barcelona and hit all the top attractions quickly and easily. Not even 15 steps from the front door is a little market to get things you may have forgotten or just to stock up on wine or some groceries. Coffee and espresso shops are just a few steps farther. We would stop on the way home and pick up some of the incredible pastries for breakfast the next day. A very safe and intimate neighborhood. The flat is one short set of steps to the first floor. Very spacious for two people. Everything was so easy to operate we had ZERO problem with anything in the flat. Victor and family have it down to a science. You will like the little outdoor space in back for just hanging out. The interior design is very up to date while keeping the charm of old Barcelona. Super clean and quiet. We used the washing machine several times for towels and clothes. There is not a dryer in the unit but you can hang outside on the clothesline on the private patio. You will really like Victor. He was quick to respond to all our questions and is like your own personal concierge if you any questions or need recommendations. Really can't express how great this location is. We really enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. We often think back to our time in Barcelona and how much more special it was having our own "home" to come back to everyday.

A Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Two couples stayed in this flat for a week. Everything about this apartment is exactly as described, even better! First off, you cannot find a better location! It is in the midst of Old Town, lots of excellent restaurants and close to the metro. We hired Miguel as our tour guide for 2 days and he was thorough and delightful. There is nothing about Barcelona that he doesn't know. We exchanged emails with Victor before we got there and he answered all of them promptly. We had a worry-free vacation, thanks to Victor and his families forethought to details. We highly recommend this apartment and hope to come back again!

Perfect Barcelona Flat

Good location! Apartment was well appointed and attractively decorated. Victor answered all emails immediately and was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and ordering a taxi back to the airport for us. Apartment was in a wonderful area with a great market just steps away.

Perfect apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
A tranquil, beautifully appointed, perfectly located apartment. We stayed for 4 nights and had an absolutely wonderful time. The owner is immensely accommodating providing us with spot on recommendations for restaurants, activities etc, the entire time we were there. The apartment is unique in its proximity to many of the best attractions in Barcelona, and a brief walk to the nearest Metro. You will absolutely love this place. We hope to come back again soon.

Barcelona gem

  • 5 of 5
I went to barcelona (with 4 kids in tow!) before my husband arrived for our cruise out if Barcelona. Miguel met me at the apartment and helped me get all of our luggage up the one flight if stairs- He was awesome in explaining everything and telling me to contact him with any issues.
Victor was always available and was incredibly prompt in all if his email replies and all the info given before we arrived was spot on!!
The apartment itself was great! The kids loved it and the patio was great for sitting outside and relaxing. There was no noise! We slept great and being so close to all the restaurants and shopping one could ever want. We WILL be returning soon and will definitely stay here. I highly recommend it. Oh and my daughter left her cell phone there and once we realized it we contacted Victor ( who replied right away) and they mailed it back to us in the states!! What a great experience all the way around
