Sant Pere - Santa Caterina i la Ribera Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

About Diana Dion-Arivas

Hello, I live in the province of Girona and often go to Barcelona for concerts and the art museums.

Why Diana Dion-Arivas chose Ciutat Vella

I love Barcelona's ancient center and wanted to have my own pied à terre in the heart of this vibrant and fascinating area.

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in this apartment in Barcelona, two adults and two kids. Loved the location, apt was clean, well stocked with items you may need and quiet. Space is smart, not huge but plenty of space for four of us and we weren't there all that much anyway! We walked or took the bus all over the city. Went to a little market nearby for groceries for morning breakfast. Everything you need is very close- grocery, wine, atm, bus/metro, restaurants, and sites. Making apartment reservation and questions regarding our stay were answered quickly and thoroughly. Would stay here again without hesitation. We loved the El Born area, and recommend this apartment.

Definitely best location!!

  • 5 of 5

Diana made the whole process of booking this apartment easy, she had a taxi waiting at the airport on our arrival. we were met at the apartment by Juan who went over details of the apartment and surrounding area even offered us to call him if we had any questions and offered to take out trash and recyclables. We were given a list of restaurants many which we had opportunity to try. We also had a taxi arranged for our departure. Our vacation was perfect. Apartment was cozy and as shown in pictures. The square was inviting, .people friendly and we had easy access to taxis. The apartment was the perfect place to stay while visiting Barcelona and would encourage other travelers to stay here!

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

On a last minute planned trip to Barcelona, we read the reviews and booked this property. Diana was wonderfully responsive, and accommodated us on quick notice. Juan, who is a delight, was at curbside to greet us. Everything positive stated in the reviews was true! We explored much of the city- which is amazing, and kept coming to the conclusion that we were staying in the best place in all the city!. The apartment is smartly put together, the rooms/ beds comfortable, and wait till you stand at the balcony overlooking the courtyard! The pictures don't do it justice. Like everyone writes in their reviews- expectations exceeded! The Born has such charm, life and energy. We loved staying here and will be back!

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is modern, clean and in a perfect location. It's not large but it was comfortable for a family with two adult children. It's well equipped and everything about the rental went smoothly. It faces a pedestrian square and we experienced absolutely no noise. Can't think of anything to complain about.

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I rented this apartment for our first visit to Barcelona which was almost a week long. This apartment looked great online but was even better in person. It was more spacious than we had anticipated and very well appointed. Having a bath and a half was also very nice. The balcony overlooking the plaza down below was used a lot and provided really fun people watching. Juan was extremely nice and accommodating. We arrived late in the day and he met us at the apartment right on time. Diana had also arranged cabs for us to and from the airport which were very punctual and much appreciated. The neighborhood is absolutely fantastic - we LOVED El Born - and no matter where else in Barcelona we went, we always kept coming back to our neighborhood to further explore. The restaurants are fantastic and plentiful - historic cathedrals just blocks away - along with the Picasso Museum. I felt very safe in this neighborhood, a lot because there were people out walking around at all times of the day and night. Bedrooms were on the back of the apartment and were very quiet and dark which made for great sleeping. Elevator and air conditioning were much appreciated. There was also a list of restaurants in the apartment, many of which we tried - and they were wonderful. I would highly recommend this apartment to my family and friends.

Awesome place to explore Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for 4 nights just recently. The place was located excellently, walking distance to many attractions, clean, and very welcoming. Both Diana (who handled our reservation) and Juan (who met us at the apartment during check-in and check-out) were wonderful to work with. Highly recommend this place.
