We have just returned from a lovely break in Barcelona and could not have wished for nicer apartments. The Inside Barcelona office took a little bit of finding (we circled Santa Maria Church twice ) but the staff were really friendly and checking in was really quick. Our two bedroom apartment was a few minutes walk from the office and... More

We stayed here for 6 days, and the apartment was very good. Traveled with a kid, and bedroooms in different floors was very nice for all three of us. The aircondition was almost too good, but perfect for me! The beds are a bit hard. The employees at Inside gave us very good service, og we will choose them next... More

The apartment is on two levels with the main bedroom and bathroom downstairs and the kitchen lounge and second bedroom upstairs. The standard of furnishing and kitchen appliances was excellent. The apartment is very close to the main area of the El Born district which is characterized by wide pedestrian areas with many pavement cafes. The check in process went... More

A year ago visited here: Apartment: Mercat Duplex street “Comercial”nº15 This was just directly behind El Born building. Similar named streets are several, so taxi drivers won't find there. Correct address is more like "back door of El Born building". There is wine shop for restaurants in down street, but consumers can buy also wine bottles from there. So location... More

Not much to say about this perfect apartment in El Born. It is well equipped, it is spacious and comfortable. The neighbourhood is calm and quiet, still near the busy square Passeig del Born. Maybe the beds could be a little better but that is a minor problem. We were very satisfied!

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.
