A central and cosy treat at the heart of the old town in Barcelona.
This modern apartment close not only to the beach but also Port Vell and the trendy El Born districts. There are many little bars and restaurants where you can enjoy some of Barcelona's best seafood dotted all along the seafront and area surrounding the apartment. It is also a short stroll to the Rambla or Vila Olimpica.
The area surrounding the apartment:
The Botticelli apartment is ideally situated between the old port or Port Vell and the gothic trendy area of El Born in Barcelona. This old port area at the bottom of Las Ramblas was once a real eyesore with old factories and disused buildings has been transformed beyond recognition since the 1980's. Chic shopping, harbourside seafood treats, movies by the sea along with bars, discos and a world famous - apparently Europe's biggest - aquarium have made this the perfect area for Barcelona's stopoff point to the Mediterranean. Also a 5 minute walk away and guests are treated to the trendy gothic El Born district with its wonderful example of gothic architecture in the magnificent church Santa Maria del Mar.
The Botticelli apartment has been completely renovated and modern functional furniture make it the perfect place for your stay. This 1st floor apartment (with elevator) is perfect for a couple, a couple with a child or two, or even two couples. The bedroom contains a queen sized bed and the living area of the apartment provides the guests with a pullout sofa for 2 additional persons. The Botticelli apartment is complete with air-conditioning and heating units.
The living room and kitchen are housed in the same room as you enter into the apartment which contains lovely wooden floors throughout the apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker hob and oven, dishwasher, fridge, washing/dryer machine, iron and all of the comforts of home. The bathroom in the apartment has been newly renovated with shower and sink units. The closet space is provided in the bedroom of the apartment. Bed linens, bathroom paper and clean towels are all provided.
Visiting Barcelona and being 30 meters from the sea as well as 15 minutes from Placa Catalunya makes this apartment a real find in the busy city of Barcelona.

This old port area at the bottom of Las Ramblas was once a real eyesore with old factories and disused buildings, but has been transformed beyond recognition since the 1980’s. With lots to choose from, be it chic shopping, harbour side seafood treats, movies by the sea along with bars, discos and a world famous - and apparently Europe's biggest - aquarium have made this the perfect area for the visitor to Barcelona.
Thanks to the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona realised the enormous potential of its shoreline and beaches were quickly transformed from the “not so appealing” and filled with golden sand, imported palm trees, drainage systems, flood lighting and the promenades were landscaped. A main feature of these great beaches are the “beach bars” or chiringuitos that serve tasty snacks and play music….
Passeig Joan de Borbó is a restaurant lined boulevard where visitors can enjoy a tasty paella as they look on to the yacht marina, before or after lounging on Barceloneta beach. Behind this busy and elegant boulevard lies the real Barceloneta or “Little Barcelona”. Back in the early 1800’s these two storey houses became homes to fishermen and sailors but soon became so overcrowded that they were split in half and later quartered; these “quarts de casa” measured approx 30 m2. It is probably because of this overcrowded atmosphere that Barceloneta residents used to pile onto the streets to socialise, chat with neighbours, etc…It is for this reason that the area has maintained an exceptionally full street life with the district also being famous for its colourful local celebrations;
Plans for a new addition to this area include the tall sail-shaped hotel by Ricard Bofill, which no doubt will be an imposing sight once completed…
The Passeig Maritim esplanade is a common hangout for skaters, locals and visitors alike walking off the excesses of lunch…..
Barceloneta is a wonderful area, full of life, for the young and the old…..
