I'm a Barcelonian, I love my city and I own an apartment listed here, on VRBO. A friend of mine asked me to manage this apartment and....this is what I'm doing.

My friend inherited the building from relatives and he refurbished it from top to bottom. Now it is a very comfortable and nice place, very bright and spacious and with everything you can need to make your stay perfect. The location is really good. I'm sure you'll enjoy the place.

It's an old building with stone walls and vaulted ceilings with warm wooden beams, now totally refurbished. It's a warm and nice place with a relaxing atmosphere.

Recommended Apartment in interesting area of El Born

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 4, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
I rented the apartment for 4 nights in February 2014 and had an excellent stay. The apartment is modern, clean, quiet and cosy with all the necessary facilities and managed by a great couple who were very helpful. The area is on the boundary of El Borne in an interesting area that is close to metro and shopping and as a lone woman traveler, I felt safe.
I would just add that this apartment is on the 4th floor with a narrow staircase so it was good exercise to climb up and down the steps. When I reserved the apartment, I mentioned this to the apartment manager who kindly offered to help me with my suitcase upon arrival which was a great help. I would definitely recommend!

The Best Place to Stay!

My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time in this apartment in El Born. Never having been to Barcelona, the owners, Mar & Xavier were extremely helpful even during the booking process, and helped us decide El Born was the best neighborhood in which to stay. They were right! Literally everything we could need was within walking distance, including the large Santa Caterina market for equipping the apartment, great tapas/wine bars, and many outdoor cafes. The neighborhood is Medieval and historic and very charming. Try the newer Ziryab tapas bar just around the corner. It was fabulous. La Rambla and Passeig de Gracia were only a 5-10 minute walk away.
The apartment itself is small but very clean and comfortable. We were impressed by how comfortable the bed was (very important to us). Kitchen has everything you need and plenty of storage space. Coffee maker is really nice and easy to use. It can be a little noisy at night - it is a very happening area. If you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs. I slept fine wearing them.
I would strongly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Barcelona. Especially since Mar and Xavier were such great hosts. They really went above and beyond to help us and that level of customer service is a huge plus for us.

Awesome little find in a great section of Born

The apartment in Candelas was absolutely great. You can’t get more centrally located, really. Whether you want to have great tapas out or explore Mercat Santa Caterina to buy stuff to cook up your own (using the excellently equipped kitchenette), it’s all here.

And the place is clean, well cared for, and absolutely comfortable. The hosts are wonderful and attentive, so no problem there with info or orientation. Lots of corner shops right close by and a kebab place right downstairs at the corner (for a bedtime snack on your late nite trek back home).

The place is cozy in two ways - it’s not hugely spacious, so don’t expect a multi-room suite, and the neighbours are close across the narrow street, but this all adds to the feel of being “in Barcelona” for real.

Seriously, I cannot think of a downside to the place. Book it!

Great apartment in a wonderful area close to everything

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We had a number of options for apartment stays in Barcelona and had a hard time selecting, but I am so glad we chose this one. The location is perfect - right next to all the wonderful tapas bars and the market serving some of the best food I had, also next to the old town Barri Gotic and very close to most tourist attractions, including Museu Picasso, History Museum, Palau Musica Catalana, and beaches/Barcelonetta. We even walked to the Modernista sites like Casa Mila and casa Battlo from the apartment.

The apartment is nice (although small, but that's to be expected in Europe) with everything a couple on holiday might need. There is certainly enough space for two people, the bed is comfortable (you may want to ask for extra pillows, there were only two small ones when we stayed there), the kitchen is functional though we only used it to make tea. There are washing and drying machines and a well-working air conditioner (a BIG plus even in late October as we found out). Our apartment was on the third floor but by American standards it was more like the 4th floor. Beware that there is no elevator and the climb up, while fine for us, may be challenging, especially with luggage. In retrospect, if I were to book again I would have chosen first floor instead of the third if it was available, since first floor is more like second and is pretty high above ground.

Lastly, the owners are great and very accomodating, gave us detailed instructions and all information we could have needed for our stay. Can't thank them enough. Definitely rent this apartment, you'll be glad you did!

Map

El Born is one of the fashionable districts in Barcelona. This neighborhood has very good restaurants and bars, but there is plenty of culture to be had as well. Calle Montcada is a medieval street, which is now home to the Picasso museum and the Textile Museum which has a great little café with a terrace attached to it. There is also the most beautiful cathedral: Santa Maria del Mar.

Nowadays people are attracted to Born for the shopping which consists of some beautiful but pricey boutiques and shoe shops. Some of the trendiest shops around have chosen Born as their home. The center, the Ramblas or even the beach are at 10 minutes walking.
