In a quiet part of beautiful El Born. We stayed there for 4 nights with our teenage daughter. The location is superb. 15 minutes’ walk to the beach and just some minutes away from many good restaurants (like Cal Pep). Very clean apartment with wooden parquet. High ceiling and free Wi-Fi. Inside Barcelona was very (very) helpful and the service... More

I would say everything about this was great. The Inside Barcelona people are organised, friendly and helpful. They gave easy to follow directions to our rather chic location, and left details on good local eating places, transport, sights etc. The apartment was spotless and well equipped, furnished in a minimal modern style with excellent wifi, AC etc. hand and bath...

We've stayed in this apartment for 8 days in February and absolutely loved everything about it. First of all the location is absolutely excellent, right on the edge of wonderful El Born and right next to the Ciutadella Park. The complex is situated on a quiet road at the back of the Mercat del Born museum. El Born is probably... More

We had a two bedroom apartment. Large enough for a family of four and a very well appointed kitchen. Location was excellent and as usuall for central Barcelona there were plenty of places to eat within a short stroll. It was a quiet apartment as there is no road at the front or back and there was almost no noise... More

Inside Barcelona provided a great apartment for us. Efficient, clean, right size (2 bedroom) and a fantastic location. More important, their staff (thank you Paula) helped us in planning the trip and in the bumps on our trip (US Airways--no thank you).

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
