WELCOME TO OUR 3 BEDROOM APARTMENT IN EL BORN IN THE HISTORICAL CENTER OF BARCELONA:

This three bedroom flat is located in the central Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona with a unique location across from the recently rebuilt Mercat de Santa Caterina. This market is not only a recent addition to the body of architectural landmarks in the city, but a place to sample top quality local produce. The flat is on the corner of a building with a protected façade as an important part of architectural history.

This apartment has three separated bedrooms with balconies / windows (one double bedroom and the other 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each that can be together or separated). There is air conditioning and central heating in all the bedrooms and in the living-room. All the balconies are completely isolated with double glass.

The quality of the accommodation and the impecable personalized service are the advantages that make this property perfect for clients looking for an exceptional holiday right in the historical center of Barcelona.

Parking: there are several parkings nearby. Please let us know if you are coming by car to inform you about parking facilities. It's important to know if you are going to use your car or not during your stay in order to give you an accurate information of the most suitable and economical parking.

THE APARTMENT IS LOCATED IN EL BORN AREA IN THE HISTORICAL CENTER:

El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city.

El Born isn't just about the nightlife, there is plenty of culture to be had as well. It can be seen that Calle Montcada was also 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. The textile museum is located here because in Born's early days it was home to the textile guilds of Barcelona. There is also a beautiful cathedral which you can wander around in, sometimes even when there is a wedding going on!

Nowadays people are attracted to El Born for the shopping which consists of some beautiful but pricey boutiques and shoe shops which are great to find that one-off piece.

El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same yellow line. Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minute walk away.

The beach is also just a 10 minute walk away so you can have both a beach holiday and a city break in one. Plus you are quite close to the Parc Ciutadella which is a relaxing place to sit in the afternoon and watch the hippies play their bongos. The Barcelona zoo is also located in Parc Ciutadella.

As you can see El Born is perfect for families as well as tourists. Noise could sometimes be a problem depending on where you are but it's not as bad as in the very centre of town. It is a picturesque and cultural part of the city with a vibrant café culture and bar scene.

The location is just a short walk from the fashionable El Born area including one of the most exciting tourist attractions in the city: the Museu Picasso and the Palau de la Música Catalana, a leading concert hall - World Heritage Site by UNESCO -. Walking to the Barri Gotic is a quick affair and the famous street of Las Ramblas is just 10 min. away on foot. Most of the city's main attractions (including the Gaudí works of Palau Guell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milá and La Sagrada Familia) and relaxing beaches are within walking distance or a short subway ride away.

Minimum capacity 2/3 people. Regular capacity 4/5 people. Maximum capacity for 5/6 people.

Cleaning fee (apartment, linen and towels). We provide sheets and towels.

About Licy and Jacob

We are Elizabeth and Jacob. We speak English, French, Spanish and Catalan.

We have always enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and that's why a few years ago we started offering our apartment to people who want to come to Barcelona to have a nice experience.

We like what we do!!! :)

*I and my husband Jacob are the real owners of the apartment. We are not an agency or representatives of the owners. Then, we are involved and we take care directly with our guests in case of any need or help.

*Our apartment is located in a nice area in El Born in the historical center. It’s not easy to find a quiet place in the middle of everywhere (Aquarium, Chocolate Museum, Picasso Museum, etc.).

*Our apartment is located in a corner of a building which means there is a lot of natural light. It has 4 exterior balconies.

*We accept credit card except the cleaning fee. I mean we accept credit card for sure. No surprise on arrival.

*Our apartment is a legal holiday apartment with license from the Government of Catalunya.

Licy and Jacob purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Licy and Jacob chose Ciutat Vella

We bought this property because we love Barcelona. We have this property here in 'El Born' in Barcelona city center because it's a nice place to stay for a few days as it's calm and comfortable and also it's a great point from where you can have access to the main attractions.

What makes this apartment unique

From our property, which is located right next to the prestigious 'Mercat de Santa Caterina', you can experience living in the origin of Barcelona. As it's in the corner of a building there is a lot of natural light. Also, there are no words to explain the feeling of relaxing in this great apartment. Then, you can take a real Spanish Siesta.

Nice apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

Awesome central, safe location. Fit nicely our family of 4, six would fit equally well. Apartment was clean and spacious. Loved the market place right next store. Jacob met us upon arrival and was accommodating of our early arrival. We walked everywhere in the City or took the subway. Nice stay.

Loved the property and the location, almost 5 stars

  • 4 of 5

We loved this property and it's location. There was plenty of room for our family of 5, with 3 bedrooms. It's just across the street from the market and there are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. At night, it was fairly quiet even though you are in central Barcelona.

The owners are very friendly and helped us out with restaurant suggestions and provided a good map so that we didn't get lost, which is quite easy with all the little streets.

I would love to give this property 5 stars, but the only thing that keeps me from doing so is the lack of extra supplies. With only 1 roll, we ran out of toilet paper. Other extras, like laundry soap and dish soap, would be nice. I would suggest leaving a few rolls of toilet paper (especially for a group of five), a roll of paper towels, dish soap, and a few laundry detergent pods. With those little extras, it would definitely be 5 stars or more!

Great location, Great air conditioning

  • 4 of 5

This was a great home base for 5 nights while we explored Barcelona. Jacob was wonderful and very helpful upon check-in. The kitchen was very functional with a full size refrigerator and the air conditioner cooled the entire apartment beautifully. The washer came in handy to travel lightly in terms of luggage. The dryer was broken which was a pain but we hung our clothes to dry. At check-in, the property manager indicated they would deliver a new one during our stay but after 5 days, it never arrived. The beds and pillows were all very comfortable. The apartment was clean but the walls could definitely use a fresh coat of paint. Also, becaware there is no soap, shampoo, or tissues provided but plenty of markets nearby allow you to buy anything needed. Overall, we would recommend this apartment because of the great location. It is a very short walk to a Metro station and the area was very safe. We loved the bike rental store down the street (Budget Bikes) where you could easily rent bikes by the day. We did a private tour with one of their guides (Mathieu) which was absolutely fantastic. He took time to stop and explain the sites and history. The city is great for exploring by bicycle. So many roads have dedicated bike lanes in Barcelona. Definitely try the restaurant at the front of the large multi-merchant market that is around the corner from the apartment. We had great tapas there. Our bike guide recommended it and we loved it. We also loved the nice Italian restaurant in Plaza Reial which is a short walk (maybe 10 min.) from the apartment.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time in Barcelona with this apartment as a home base in El Born neighborhood. Very convenient location to the old city and metro. It's a walk up flat, but fine for the 4 of us. Shower was a bit tight, even for my skinny family. Enjoyed having the market across the street (and pizza and empanadas a block away.)

Very accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

If you wish to have a worry-free visit to Barcelona and stay in a perfect little place in one of its quaint districts, Jacob’s place is the best.

Fully kitted out, comfortable and very clean.

In addition to the physical situation, your host Jacob is absolutely great. Really nice, accommodating and most helpful. He is my idea of how a perfect host acts.

The only caveat is that many of the apartments do not have elevators. If climbing narrow stairs is a problem, make sure you let Jacob know when you make your reservation request.

Great place and the highlight is Jacob, your host.
