Show the property description
If you want the old rustic feel of Gothic Barcelona with a central location this is your apartment.

Located in the heart of the gothic district of El Borne, this apartment offers guests all they need for a realistic Barcelona experience. It is situated at 40 steps from one of the most famous examples of Gothic architecture in Barcelona: the Santa Maria del Mar church, which overshadows the neighbourhood. Tastefully decorated, comfortable with balcony views of the busy walkways below this apartment will make you visit special.

The area surrounding the apartment:

The Manel apartment is situated literally steps away from one of Barcelona's most distingushed Gothic churches, the Santa Maria del Mar, in the center of El Borne or Born. The Born district is an intricate maze of narrow, medieval streets where you will find lots of trendy boutiques and great bars, cafés and restaurants. Another option for the visitor staying at this great Barcelona apartment is to visit the Gothic quarter situated right in the heart of the old town and about a ten minutes' walk from the apartment. This is the area that fell within the medieval walls and, until 150 years ago, made up the entire city of Barcelona. The area is a body of interconnecting narrow, cobble stoned streets where you can potter around for hours and explore the shops and restaurants.

The apartment:

The Manel apartment has been decorated to retain the original architectural details combining modern appliances with elegant antiques in a building that dates back many centuries. The original mouldings, exposed wooden beams, but especially the typical shuttered windows give guests the true Barcelona feeling. This first floor apartment is perfect for accommodating a family or group of friends, with two bedrooms and a pullout sofabed.

The Manel apartment is situated on the corner of the building and as such it is surrounded by large wooden shuttered windows. The living room and dining room is accommodated in one large room with a pullout sofabed. The master bedroom has a large double bed with plenty of closet space while the second bedroom houses bunk beds. The beautiful kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, oven, fridge, pots and pans, toaster and all the comforts of home. The spacious bathroom is clean and comfortable with shower, bath and a sink unit which have been newly installed. Please note that the actual toilet is separate to the bathroom. The whole apartment has been tastefully decorated with some rustic and antique furniture pieces.

You will not regret choosing this expectional apartment to enjoy your stay in medieval Barcelona!

Elevator was nice. Large flat was well decorated. GREAT location. Double vanity in bath was nice as was the separate WC. We would visit again.
We could have used some English instructions as to how to use the washer and dryer. The street noise got a bit loud but we expected it based on the area.

The apt was in the middle of everything we wanted to see and do. Easy walking to food shopping, restaurants and museums. . . particularly the Picasso Museum. We liked the rustic quality of the apt. We liked that the apt came with both a washer and dryer.

The location was unbelievable. We were surrounded by everything we needed. The metro was 2 minutes away, cafes were 30 seconds away. While we thought we would cook, there were so many amazing restaurants the only time we used the kitchen was for cold water. The A/C worked great, the layout was spacious with kids on one end and us on the other. The value of the washer and dryer exceeded the use of the kitchen. The wifi worked perfect. Little supermarkets were everywhere for water, snacks etc. The apartment was clean and inviting. I would not stay in any other area then Born and this apartment. If you expect an amazing view, you will be looking at the old side of the Santa Maria and some pigeons (did not detract at all from our stay) -- you have windows which open and can watch those walking and hear the life-- we did not need a reason to stay inside since there was so much to view and see outside!!

Location of the apartment was excellent - centrally placed for touring of the historic areas and close enough to the subway to easily get to the outlying areas we wanted to visit. There were literally hundreds of very good restaurants withing walking distance. We will stay here next time we are in Barcelona!

This beautiful apartment is right in the middle of the older section of Barcelona and so within walking distance of almost everything that we wanted to see and also only a 5 minute walk to the metro for when we wanted to go to outlying areas . The apartment itself was even better than expected - in an old building but beautifully restored and with all the modern amenities . Friendly Rentals was a pleasure to work with even when our arrival was delayed 4 days by the volcanic ash cloud . We will definitely use them again and stay at the Manel apartment whenever we return to Barcelona.

The location is fantastic, especially for those interested in participating in El Born's party scene. The apartment is quite large and well appointed. We loved everything about it. Given location, size of apartment, amenities, etc, it was a great value.
Nothing to complain about at all.
