A true example of the rustic medieval area of the old city of Barcelona, El Borne

This uniquely renovated apartment ON THE 4TH FLOOR WITH NO ELEVATOR has the feeling of Barcelona in Roman times. The open plan apartment displays newly renovated wood ceilings, original exposed stone walls, parquet floor and is complimented with a 21st century design kitchen. Subtle lighting and a calm atmosphere makes any guest feel the true medieval Barcelona experience. A holiday stay in this exclusive accommodation is one not to be missed.

The area surrounding the apartment:

The Manuela apartment is situated in the heart of the Borne which is the trendy and upbeat part of the Old Town in Barcelona. It lays right next to the Gothic quarter of Barcelona. This is the oldest part of the city and the site chosen by the Romans during the Augustus Empire (27 to 14 B.C.) to found a new colony. The Barrio Gótico contains a concentration of medieval Gothic buildings only a few blocks northeast of Las Ramblas. It is a maze of interconnecting dark streets linking with squares, and there are plenty of cafés and bars. The apartment itself is steps from Paseo del Born which in turn is 50 meters from the amazing gothic church Santa Maria del Mar, the Picasso Museum, the Cathedral and the port. The street which the Manuela apartment is on has lots of designer and artisan shops and boutiques as well as a wonderful italian deli, and an ethnic asian furniture shop.

The apartment:

The apartment building has been renovated to strict rules and guidelines which conserves the historic facade of the ancient gothic quarter. The apartment itself is located on the fourth floor with no elevator so be prepared for a bit of a hike upstairs. When you enter the apartment you will be glad of the open plan layout and the distinct features like the exposed walls and authentic wood ceilings. Guests can relax after a day of adventuring through the narrow cobbled stone lanes of the old town. The bedroom section has a large wrought iron double bed with large white cotton curtains which can be pulled across for privacy. The living room contains a comfortable double pullout sofabed with writing desk and entertainment center. An air conditioning system insures your visit to the Manuela apartment will pe a pleasant one.

The kitchen is fully equipped with vitroceramic counter tops and all the commonplace items like oven, fridge, microwave, pots, pans, coffee machine, fridge and so on. The bathroom comprises of a shower unit and is stylishly decorated with spanish mosaic tiling. All linens and towels are provided as well as an iron and ironing board.

The location of the property was fantastic and we really enjoyed the decor.
The flat tended to be very dark even during the day.

The Manuela apartment was fantastic, once you became accustomed to the many stairs. The location was fantastic, and even though we were right in the heart of Born, which we loved, the apartment was very quiet and extremely comfortable. Overall it was a wonderful experience staying there, surrounded by hundreds? of bars and restaurants and quirky little alley ways. The local shop owners were friendly and helpful and the prices, so cheap.
