We stayed at the2 bedroom Mercat rental. Beautiful two level apt. Gorgeous bathroom big shower. Wonderful view from balcony of the rooftops of Barcelona. Lower level bedroom super quiet. Faces inner courtyard. Bedroom on top floor facing street was slightly noisy but ear plugs did the trick. It was National Catalan day/ week so probably a little more noise than... More

Arrived late Thursday and our initial impression of the area could not have been further from the truth. We stayed at Mercat in a 2 bed duplex. The district of El Born has the remains of the ancient market as well as lots of cafes, restaurants and bars and is lovely to walk around in the day or at night.... More

Second time we stayed here. We usually choose the apartments in Mercat but I'm sure their other properties are as good. The staff are very helpful right from king reservations to storing your luggage for you. The first time when we stayed (August 2014), they explained everything; how to use the metro, book tickets for museums, where are the supermarkets,... More

We have spent almost two weeks in apartment Mercat (2 bedrooms). The apartment is big, modern, clean, with everything you need. The location could not be better. Just in front of El Born Commercial. You have a lot of restaurants near by, and just walking distance from many attractions. The staff from the office is just amazing! They helped us... More

This MERCAT apartment which is located opposite of the el born centre, is very quiet. Even though we are just on the 2nd floor (lift available), we could sleep peacefully without any disturbance, sometimes we overslept. One room faced the inside building and the other facing the walking street so one room is quiet and the other not so. Other... More

We (2 adults/1 child) stayed here for 5 nights in April 2015. This is the first time we stayed in an apartment abroad (usually stay in normal hotels) and we was a bit worried beforehand for troubles. But the staff at inside apartments was very helpful. As soon as the booking went through we had several emails from them, confirming... More

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...

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.
