This apartment was fabulous. Perfectly located, lovely décor, everything we could possibly want including excellent wifi included in the cost. Cannot speak highly enough of the service offered by the great staff at Inside Barcelona. We felt so at home and so comfortable and any questions, directions or bookings for tours was organised without any hassle by staff at the... More

Inside Barcelona provided us with comprehensive directions for getting to their office from the airport and advice about booking for the Gaudi sites we wished to see. We opted for the airport train with a same-platform change at Passeig de Gràcia to get to Estació de França, a 5 minute walk from the Inside Barcelona office. The comfortable apartment, a... More

We arrived at the offices of Inside Barcelona in El Born District and were met with a warm welcome. We were shown to the Mercat Apartments a short walk away and were very pleasantly surprised by the standard of the accommodation. There were two bedrooms (a twin and a single), a large sitting room with modern furnishings and, as we... More

We have just had a fabulous 3 night stay in the 2 bedroom Mercat apartment. Inside Barcelona were extremely helpful from the moment I booked a few months ago, up to the moment we left to return to London. Their wonderful staff escorted us to the apartment, ran through all the information regarding the accommodation, location and best places to... More

Our apartment overlooked the Old El Born mercat. It was very clean and well equipped with a washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, Foxtel and large fridge/freezer. The apartment was secure and also had a safe. We felt very secure in the El Born area which is close to Bari Gotic. Inside Barcelona provided very helpful information as to nearby restaurants, markets and... More

Wow! This was my first apartment rental on vacation, and we were not sorry we made the choice. The location is terrific...not too touristy, with plenty of places near by. The apartment itself is very nice with multi levels. Loved having the outdoor terrace for morning breakfast and coffee, and the view was a bonus. Not a noisy area, either.... More

My mother and I stayed 3 nights in a gorgeous 2 bed 2 level apartment overlooking the old market which is now a cultural centre and archeological site. El Born is a superb location, plenty of fantastic bars, restaurants and unique shops and not too many tourists!

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.
