It is an alternative with advantages over a traditional hotel.

AN APARTMENT WITH CHARM AND HISTORY

The apartment has been renovated and furnished in a contemporary and modern style by a famous architect. It was published in prestigious national and international decoration magazines and has been shown in two programs form the local TV. The building is of the seventeenth century. The renovation has discovered the original features of the apartment, mixing Catalan vaults, old beams and mud bricks, all original and combined with avant-garde elements and materials.

Living in this apartment is an exciting experience. The architecture was designed to create space through the movement of wooden panels, creating truly exquisite volumes and spaces.

You can change the shape of the apartment, with easy movements of its panels, creating spaces to suit you, so that you can either have closed rooms or open spaces, depending on what you want at any time .

The lighting in this apartment was treated with care, creating shadows and highlights in all the rooms. The apartment has a perimeter lighting all over the walls to give prominence to the viewed brick from 1800. This lighting gives a sense of depth in all areas.

At the top, there is a wonderful light that shows the Catalan vaulted ceilings and the exposed and restored old beams.
All doors and windows are original from the nineteenth century and have been restored and fitted with great care and detail.

Inside the apartment we created a small floating garden that connects the inner courtyard.

The whole apartment is refurbished with natural wood base.

The apartment has two balconies overlooking the street. On the balcony you can sit on a chair and read while enjoying the wonderful view of the church Santa Maria del Mar. You can see thousands of people passing through the gate of the church which is a unique setting and a treat for the senses.

The living room has a round table perfect for 5 persons and is very close to the open and transparent kitchen, creating spaces through a glass. It even has a special refrigerator for wine and champagne.

Everything in this apartment is a blend of luxury, tradition and modernism.

It is divided into the following areas and rooms:

• Master bedroom.
• Bedroom with a bunk bed and a trundle bed.
• Two full bathrooms.
• Living room equipped with a sofa, table and four chairs and a kitchen with center island, with all facilities and cutting-edge line.

Ideal for a couple or a young family.

TECHNOLOGY

The apartment is equipped with the latest technology to make your stay more rewarding and intense: high-speed ADSL, Wi-Fi, Apple TV and an Apple Wireless Keyboard to enjoy the best contents and movies without leaving the apartment, or hear your music and watch your pictures on the TV directly from your iPhone or iPad.

GOING OUT: HISTORY, CUISINE, ART, BEACH, NIGHTLIFE

The apartment is in the center of Barcelona. From the balcony you can see less than 20 meters away the main facade of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Mar, the protagonist of the bestseller THE CATHEDRAL OF THE SEA. Of course, if you like history and medieval period, this is your place.

Located in the Gothic Quarter, in the Born area where today are positioned workshops and art galleries, local fashion designers, great terraces and restaurants offering many dining options.

There are also streets around the apartment now iconic like the one where the movie "Perfume" based on the book by Patrick Suskind was filmed. From the apartment you can go walking to the beach of Barceloneta in less than ten minutes. Fifteen minutes you can also find the famous Plaza Real, in which Woody Allen filmed Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona.

And if you don't feel like walking, don't worry, the subway is right next door and there are also several bus lines that take you to any part of the city.

Also very close is the shopping street Portal del Angel. Where you can find anything you need: boutiques, bookstores, etc! Not only the most popular stores, also original products from small shops, decorating shops, crafts, or whatever you can not find anywhere else.
And the best is to wander through the streets and end up at the Church of Pi, a jewel of Romanesque art, or the Church of San Felipe Neri. Or, if you prefer to walk with the family on the Ramblas surrounded by flowers up to the fantastic Boqueria market and then down to walk past the restored building of the Liceu, the port and reach the promenade.
If you like music and architecture you can find also next to the apartment the Palau de la Música, a jewel of Catalan modernist architect Domenech i Muntaner, a disciple of Gaudí, the architect of the Sagrada Familia.

And if you walk up all Via laietana you would see also part of the Roman walls. So, you have the whole history of the city within walking distance.

Although the best is the apartment itself. As it is in the Gothic and old fishing district, the architect took the original structure and reconverted into a dream. Looks like you're in another era, but with the comforts of XXI century. A loft design but with the air of an old fisherman's house. Sometimes it feels like being on a boat. You have two balconies overlooking medieval, many light, and much comfort. It is ideal for families with children, romantic couples or groups of friends who want to have fun.

Also, if you like football and want to see FC Barcelona in their natural habitat, the Nou Camp, if you want to watch live the best players in the world, Messi, Piqué, Valdés, Xavi, Iniesta, Villa, Puyol and Fabregas , the legendary "dream team" that Pep Guardiola created you can access within minutes by subway from the apartment.

Of course, if you want to have fun and spend some romantic days surrounded by history and glamor, this is your place.

  • Perfect service and communication upfront and during our trip. Easy check-in and check-out. Very nice apartment in the heart of El Born and very supportive neighbors. We loved it; my wife the great coffee shop close by and our two kids the "Happy Pills" :-) candy store around the corner. We did not expect too much silence over the weekend... We give five stars for our perfect Barcelona weekend!

  • This place far exceeded my expectations. It is exactly how it appears in the pictures. It's beautiful interior design and charm is very welcoming. I loved the combination of modern and rustic used for the interiors. This place gives you a chance to escape the ordinary and live life like a local in Barcelona. The host was very attentive and communication was flawless. As for the location, you walk out of the door into the liveliest part of town with tons of boutique shops, restaurants and bars. I was worried about the noise at night but I could not hear anything and was able to get great nights of sleep. It is also very close to the metro station if you need to get anywhere. Lots of taxis driving around too just in case.

    Overall best experience I've had so far. Highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Barcelona no matter what the purpose is. It will sure be a place to come back to recharge.

    Hello Bita, thank you very much for your words and your review. We really appreciate it. We love it when our guests have a great time in the city and enjoy our apartments and our service. Makes us very happy. You know already you are more than welcome to stay in any of our apartments. Was nice meeting you. We keep in touch.

  • This was our third trip to Barcelona and our first time staying in Le Born. It was wonderful to walk out the door and find good restaurants right around the corner. The church bells (start ringing quite early, warning!) are beautiful and you can see the church from the balcony. The apartment looks just like the photos and this really is a perfect location. The beds are comfortable and the design is spectacular. As has been stated by other reviewers, you can hear EVERYTHING else going on around you, but that has been our experience in almost every big city. Bring earplugs if you are a sensitive sleeper, but don't let that stop you from renting this place.

    Roberto was very attentive, responding to questions and requests almost immediately.

    There is a certain bit of luxury that is lacking, given the price. Simple things that could easily be remedied -- a few more (and larger) pillows, nicer sheets and towels, extra blankets. Just ONE sharp knife in case you do want to use the kitchen. A rug in the colder months to add warmth (without messing with the aesthetic). Certainly nothing that that should prevent you from renting here.

    I recommend the flat to anyone wanting to be in the heart of great shopping and restaurants.

  • We really loved Barcelona and our stay at the apartment. It is a very unique property with modern amenities in a medieval building and in the best location in the city. The Born area has tons of shops and restaurants and is great for just wandering around. We felt very safe and liked that there were always people around.While it is located on a busy pedestrian street with the shutters closed we didn't hear any noise. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the air conditioning. We did not use the kitchen or washing machine but the fact that it is available is a plus. It was nice having an apartment with all that space and I think it is a great value for what you get. Keep in mine, there are a lot of steps since it's in the medieval section of town but it was definitely worth it. Roberto was very responsive to our needs and we would not hesitate to return in the future.

  • We really had a wonderful time in Barcelona and this lovely apartment brought our experience up a lot for sure. The apartment is perfectly located within the very center of the city. It is located in a lovely street that has many restaurants, bars and markets around, and every major attraction is within walking distance, even the beach is 15 minutes by walking. Moreover, through the small but lovely balconies, you could sip your drinks while gazing directly at the mighty Santa Maria del Mar church.
    The apartment itself is wonderfully designed with red brick walls and wooden floors. It has a very warm and romantic atmosphere. It is exactly how it looks in the photos.
    Checking-in and out was quite smooth, our greeter was waiting for us in front of the apartment when we arrived and checking out was as easy as leaving the keys in and pulling the door.
    Roberto is a mindful host and he was very easy to reach by phone or SMS.
    All in all, we loved this apartment a lot and surely we'll stay there the next time we be in Barcelona!
