The Space

We offer a clean & chic studio to enjoy a comfortable stay right at the heart of Born area.

A few blocks away from the Picasso Museum, Santa María del Mar, Barcelona Disseny Hub, Mammoth Museum, Santa Caterina Market, The Cathedral, El Palau de la Música Catalana, and many more interesting sites.

It is at a walking distance from Ciutadella Park and the beach.

This area is crowded with options for eating out, shopping, or just wandering and enjoying the beauty of medieval streets & sites.

Well connected to metro and buses. But really, who wants them? Staying here you can walk everywhere, or rent a bike and go around the city in a heartbeat!

Nearest metro station is Jaume I (yellow line) two minutes away, then Urquinaona (red/yellow lines) is also close about eight minutes away, and Liceu (green line) is about ten minutes walking through beautiful Ferran street.

The apartment consists in a large space, where living room and kitchen share the same surface, as well as the bedroom that is separated by a sliding door. It can be divided to host up to three guests: two in the main bedroom and the third guest in the expandable white couch you can see in the pictures.

The kitchen is equipped with:

-coffe maker (american style)
-washing machine (no dryer, you can air-dry your clothes outside)
-pans, pots, dishes

And, there is Santa Caterina market just two blocks away, there you will be able to find a variety of products to cook at home if you enjoy doing so.

We don't allow to smoke inside, there is a balcony where you can smoke in case you really want to. The space is smoke free.

Dog and family friendly.

  • I stayed in this great apartment with a girlfriend and it was perfect for this purpose. It is located in the coolest part of Barcelona (away from Las Ramblas and the obviously touristic area, albeit I am sure every second person was possibly a tourist, it did not feel like that). It had a great vibe but was still quiet enough, not to be kept up all night. It was conveniently located near the Jaume station and perfect to walk to many of the sites in the old part of town, as well as sensational cafes and wonderful boutiques. The apartment itself was beautiful and well maintained with everything we needed, although we couldn't help eating out almost every night when it is such a happening area. Maria was helpful and accommodating and in all, we would highly recommend this apartment.

  • This is a great apartment, larger than it looks in the photos, in a very convenient location in the Born district. The address is a bit hard to find as the apartment is on a small lane, but this is soon figured out. It is very close to the Metro (Station Jaume 1) and there are several grocery stores a stone's throw away, along with restaurants, and a bike rental location. Maria was terrific to deal with, and very generous with tips and maps.

  • I booked this agreeable apartment for the second time because of the superb location and the very friendly host. The flexible check-out was very pleasant since our plane was leaving at the end of the day. Enjoyable stay!

  • Thank you for this wonderful stay right in the heart of Barcelona. The Appartement was gorgeous. Everything was clean and cosy. El Born is very recommendable as there are lots of nice cafés and bars and even the beach just around the corner.There is no need to take the Metro at all. We rented a bike and really enjoyed seeing Barca by bike. Really looking forward to come back to this beautiful place!!

  • We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It is located in the nicest area of Barcelona with lots of little shops and restaurants in a very friendly neighbourhood close to Santa Maria church and Picasso museum. On walking distance to the old town, Placa Catalunya and Barcelonetta. Metro L4 is around the corner. We felt at home at the lovely apartment which is clean and modern and very quiet since the little street is away from nightlife and in a pedestrian area.

  • Perfect place, perfect location. Calm neet and very cute place, where we found everything we needed even olive oil.
    We really felt at home, and loved to rest and cook in this appartment.
    The location is amazing, and the metro is a block asay, buses the same, that takes you all over the city.
    The only thing you have to know is that the bed is quite small for tall people, but you tend to forget it because there is no noise, and it's comfortable.
    We loved it!
    Thank you!!

  • Super cool spot in an amazing little neighborhood! We loved the cute little streets, and easy access to lots of good restaurants. It was really easy to walk or take the metro to all the must-see spots in Barcelona.
