LAST MINUTE JULY € 89 COZY APARTMENT IN THE TRENDIEST NEIGHBORHOOD, EL BORN

La Ribera El Borne Apartment Rental Photos and Description

This cute apartment is on the second floor (without elevator) of a restored ancient building. The entire building and the apartments have been recently renovated. You can find stone walls in the stairs of the building, rustic wooden beams in the studio and all combined with modern and comfortable furniture.

The studio is fully equipped: dinning area for two or four, TV, DVD, air conditioning, full kitchen with all the amenities needed (dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, ironing board, iron) washing machine and dryer, linen, towels, a bathroom and a comfortable double bed and a double sofa bed and all distributed in a bright and spacious place. There is a good WI-FI internet connection and double glazing windows.

The main advantage of the studio is the location, in the Born district, near everything: museums, the Gothic Quarter, Ramblas and Plaça Catalunya, even you have a short walk to the beach (Barceloneta). The apartment is in the middle of the historical center, the heart of Barcelona. You can reach most of the places of interest within easy walking distance.

'El Born' is the trendiest neighborhood in Barcelona, full of wonderful cafés, bars and restaurants and many nice but pricey boutiques.

Guestbook comments from the manager
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!

I'm from Barcelona, I love my city. I'm an apartment owner listed on VRBO and I also manage this apartment because a friend of mine asked me to do it. I love this job and I love to help you to find the best place to spend your holidays.

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 vaulted ceilings, warm wooden beams, now totally refurbished. It's a bright and nice place with a relaxing atmosphere.

FANTASTIC LOCATION, NEW RENOVATION, MODERN KITCHEN AND WASHER/DRYER

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed here for five days last week and loved the location, the amenities including washer/dryer, hot shower with great water pressure, kitchen with full supplies and equipment including a dishwasher all newly renovated. With two large teenage sons sharing the futon, we definitely maxed out the space but our queen bed and their futon bed were both comfortable and the air conditioning was very cool. Narrow, steep stairs were not a problem for us but we travel light so not much luggage to haul. The apartment location could not have been better--within walking distance to everywhere we wanted to be including the Gothic Quarter, El Born, the beach, Picasso Museum, Las Ramblas...we even walked to La Sagrada Familia and from there took the metro to Park Guell but I would recommend the metro (only a few blocks from the apartment) to La Sagrada as it is the one attraction away from the center of the action. Finally, what really made the experience wonderful was the management by Mar and Xavier who made sure we had everything we needed and were incredibly kind, welcoming and helpful.

EXCELLENT BASE FOR EXPLORING FANTASTIC LOCAL AREA!

  • 5 of 5
We were really happy with this apartment! It was the perfect size for the two of us and very comfortable, clean, stylish and well equipped! The apartment was quiet whilst being fantastically positioned for great restaurants, cafés, bars as well as many of the main cultural tourist sites of Barcelona! We visited the local food market and ate tapas with the locals on many occasions! Mar and Javier were incredibly helpful and friendly also. We would be happy to stay again on a return trip! Thank you!

FANTASTIC APARTMENT!!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment really made our stay. It was comfortable for our family with 2 children, very quiet and cozy. The hotel management was even better, very gracious and willing to help with whatever we needed. The location was close to so many sights in Barcelona, and about 1 block from a Metro station which was very convenient. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

LOVED OUR LITTLE STUDIO! CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN

Loved our little studio! Can't wait to return
  • 5 of 5
Spent 1 week at this studio over Thanksgiving Week. We loved it! The entire reservation process over email with Mar was responsive, informative, comfortable, inspiring trust in the deal. Our check in and check out was a pleasure with Javier. We got a nice overview of apt, and local tips. We had been to Barcelona before, so we needed less guidance, but if you are new, Javier and Mar are happy to help. The apt was as expected from the photos in terms of lay out, but it surprised pleasantly in terms of the completeness of all it had to offer in terms of appliances and comfort. While a studio, it was spacious for 2 people. It was very clean. Shower pressure was very good and water hot. You need to manage the hot water not to run out (50 Liter tank). It's doable. The location was just as we had hoped, in the center of old town close to many restaurants, markets, bars, museums, sea. We walked tons! The location on the 2nd floor without an elevator means whomever rents it must be comfortable with stairs. It was not a problem for us at all. The stairs are narrow making luggage transfer a bit of a challenge, but Javier is very helpful with that part, too. We enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to return. Don't miss the Mercat Pricesa, a 5 min walk from the property for many little tapas options in a renovated warehouse setting. Brand new.

GREAT FIND IN EL BORN

  • 5 of 5
This was my second trip to Barcelona, and I was fortunate to find this wonderful apartment in the El Born neighborhood. Our host, Mar, was wonderful throughout the entire VRBO process from booking to confirmation to our stay. It is always a relief to receive quick responses, and I appreciated Mar's timeliness.

The apartment is located on a wonderful side street, so it was close to everything in the neighborhood but quiet and private in the evening. It is kept extremely clean and up to date with wi-fi and air conditioning. The bed and furniture were also very comfortable which was wonderful after walking all day on cobblestone paths.

I will definitely stay here again, and I recommend this apartment to anyone who appreciates a home away from home in a new city.
