This is a nice hotel that is close to the Picasso Museum, Barcoloneta, Sagrada Familia, and tapas. We stayed for 5 days and walked everywhere. It's easy to reach from the aerobus and 2 stops on the Metro. The room is big enough and clean. After a run or walk in the city, we took a dip in the rooftop... More

I just returned from Spain after spending two weeks, the first few nights we stayed at this hotel. It was perfect, the Location is Perfect. Very cool area to walk around and lots of cafes, restaurants surrounding it. However, my one complaint would be one particular front desk clerk seemed to be a bit off. She would take calls while...

Value for money hotel, clean rooms and bathrooms. Stone's trow away from Arc De Triomf, most of the touristy locations were a 10-15 min walk and for the far off places the metro station was just about a 5 min walk. I must commend the staff, they were very friendly and helped me plan my 2 days there.

Catalonia Born did not disappoint! After meticulously searching for a hotel with a convenient location and an affordable price, I picked Catalonia Born for my trip to Barcelona based on reviews and price, and I must say I was very satisfied with my choice. The hotel is located near the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona and practically across the street from... More

Very nice hotel within 10-20 minute walk of all major points of interest in Barcelona. Staff was very friendly, rooms were modern, and there is a nice small pool on the roof. Breakfast was a buffet like in a typical American hotel.

Very modern reception area. We were also given a free drink ticket upon arrival. Updated guest rooms with all the necessities of home. Too cold for the rooftop pool, but it was very clean. Wifi was fast and reliable. Very little street noise (our balcony opened to a narrow alley) and blackout curtains meant a good night's rest. Also very... More

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.
