OLLES has 75 square meters and is prepared to lodge, with absolute comfort, up to 6 people. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom (with bath), 1 toilet and a spacious kitchen - living room space with a balcony from which you could enjoy the views of the nice square where the flat is located. Although it is quite complicated to find a completely new building in the old district, this flat is part of a new one (finished in July 2003), so it has elevator.
Stylishly furnished, the flat has been carefully decorated to ensure that your stay will be very pleasant. It has heating and air conditioning. On the other hand, it is fully equipped with all domestic appliances as washing machine, clothes-dryer, vacuum cleaner, fridge-freezer, microwave, kettle, squeezer, toaster, iron, ironing board, TV, hair-drying, etc. It also has baby cot, baby high chair, sheets & towels and Internet (Wifi).
This apartment , located in the heart of Born district, gives you the opportunity to enjoy yourself from a stay in the most fascinating area in Barcelona. Full up of the most fashion shops, cafes and restaurants in the city, you can also find amazing places to visit as, for example, the Santa Maria del Mar Church (a XIV century gothic church) as well as medieval palaces built in this historical neighbourhood.
We only accept couples aged more than 30 years and families
The apartment has a very good location, you can go to one of the many restaurants of the neighborhood by foot, the subway is very close and the apartment is clean, functional and very nice !
Great weed-end there !
This apartment is in a fantastic location - we loved being able to access the trendy area of Born so easily. The lift was a real bonus for us as we had a baby in a pram and it saved us having to lug it (and him) up flights of stairs. In terms of constructive feedback... The property advertised a cot... I would suggest replacing it as it is broken and is not safe to use. Also, the sheets and towels really could do with a good soak - they're very discoloured. Other than that, a good experience.
If you believe in Location, Location, Location, then you will love this apartment. We were there for 4 days and felt like we were living in the best neighborhood in Barcelona. The shops, the restaurants, the nearby church were a different revelation every day. An easy walk to the beach, too.
Then, after a tough day of being a tourist, you can pull up a chair or 2 to the window you see in the picture there and look down into the Placa de les Olles, relax and people watch. There is the sweet old lady across the Placa that tends to her extensive balcony garden every day, the proprietors of the wonderful cafe, and the people that line up every day for the super-trendy restaurant on the corner.
Everything worked as advertised. Very quiet and the A/C was very good (It got hot outside). My only tip to the owners would be to refresh the paint job on the walls.
Loved everything about the place! Perfectly located elevator building on a quiet square, clean, very secure, really could not expect anything more from a rental.
I recommend it unreservedly.
Living nowadays also in the old part of Barcelona, I really like this city. Located close to the see, and no far from the mountains, it is a fantastic place to visit and live!!
