BARCELONA AREA GUIDES: EL BORN
Despite humble beginnings as a settlement built on top of a medieval area of jousts and celebrations, El Born has become one of the most fashionable places in the city.
Every day, the cafes are full of people, and at night people move to Passeig de Born, which is according to locals the site of the jousts. At Passeig de El Born, there are many bars, all of which offer good mojitos, and people say that here you can find the best place for eating pizza in Barcelona. You can't complain about €1.50 for a slice!
Nevertheless, El Born is not only about nightlife. There are many cultural attractions to discover as well. On Montcada Street, an old medieval street, you can find the Picasso Museum and the Textile Museum, which has a great little café with a terrace attached to it. The Textile Museum is located here because in El Born's early days it was home to the textile guilds of Barcelona. There is also a beautiful cathedral you can visit, and sometimes even witness a wedding!
Nowadays, people are attracted to El Born due to the shopping facilities consisting of some beautiful but pricey boutiques and shoe shops great to find an amazing piece. Some of the trendiest shops around such as Brazilian company Colcci have chosen El Born as their home.
El Born is located between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by Barceloneta and Jaume 1 metro stations, which are on the same line. Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minute walk away.
The beach is also just a 10 minute walk away, so you can have both a beach holiday and a city break in one visit. In addition, you are quite close to the Parc Ciutadella, a relaxing place to sit in the afternoon and watch the hippies play their bongos. The Barcelona zoo is also located in Parc Ciutadella.
As you can see El Born is perfect for families as well as tourists. Noise could sometimes be a problem depending on where you are, but it is not as bad as in the very centre of town. It is a picturesque and cultural part of the city with a vibrant café culture and bar scene.

Reviews of this property
Hello Wimdu, unfortunately we did not get the apartment that we had booked! Supposedly there was sprayed for bugs and poison because of concern about our health we were offered another apartment (we had no way to the reserved apartment at least to look at). We had booked 3 bedrooms, each with 2-3 beds, now had three women sleep in one room, another in the living room on the sofa. I was glad to have brought my own towels because the towels in the apartment have very gefusselt, they were placed directly into the bathroom unwashed from loading table. We are very disappointed and think that Born Montcada 4 a loss leader is. Barcelona is a very interesting town, so annoying that you so "is ripped off" for a lot of money.
Hallo wimdu, leider haben wir nicht die Wohnung bekommen, die wir gebucht hatten! Angeblich wurde dort wegen Ungeziefer Gift gesprüht und wegen der Sorge um unsere Gesundheit wurde uns eine andere Wohnung angeboten (Wir hatten keine Möglichkeit, die gebuchte Wohnung wenigstens anzusehen). Wir hatten 3 Schlafzimmer mit je 2-3 Betten gebucht, jetzt mussten drei Frauen in einem Raum schlafen, eine andere im Wohnzimmer auf dem Sofa. Ich war froh, meine eigenen Handtücher mitgenommen zu haben denn die Handtücher im Appartement haben sehr gefusselt, sie wurden vom Ladentisch aus direkt ungewaschen ins Bad gelegt. Wir sind sehr enttäuscht und denken, dass Born Montcada 4 ein Lockangebot ist. Barcelona ist eine sehr sehenswerte Stadt, um so ärgerlicher, dass man für viel Geld so "über den Tisch gezogen wird".

Large apartment with a good location. We found taxis easily and there are lots of restaurants. close enough for the beach and touring. The kitchen facilities, cookware, plats, glasses, etc were well provided.
everything worked pretty well. the only thing is that it is up 4 flights of stairs that
are not so large near the top.
provided contact numbers for problems and were helpful
Good,central and clean Location in El Born. Simple Check In and Mark was very friendly. We stayed one week in this appartement. Sometimes it was a little bit noisy , but Barcelona is never quiet!
A great place of residence!
Everything was well organized and prepared: confirmation after booking, arrival guide, appointment at the appartment for handover, useful ttips and the return as well. Many thanks to Pol, Mark and his Team!

Incredibly beautiful apartment in central Gothic Barcelona. Close to everything. We stayed two families and had nice space.
The apartment was great, clean o clean. Plenty of room for 6 people and perfectly situated near the Picasso Museum. Nice o helpful host. Drawback was the narrow o steep stairs to the 5th floor.
Lägenheten var toppen, rent o fräscht. Gott om plats för 6 personer och perfekt belägen nära Picasso-muséet. Trevlig o hjälpsam värd. Nackdel var den smala o branta trappan till 5:e våningen.
Apartment very beautiful, generous (we were two couples), fully equipped kitchen, ingenious location: bakers, tapas bars, shops in the immediate vicinity. Very nice contact with Mark, stood before the apartment when we arrived from the airport by taxi!
We'll be back!
Wohnung sehr schön, großzügig (wir waren zwei befreundete Paare), voll ausgestattete Küche, geniale Lage: Bäcker, Tapasbars, Geschäfte in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft. Sehr netter Kontakt mit Mark, stand schon vor der Wohnung als wir mit dem Taxi vom Flughafen kamen!
Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!
The apartment was good. Location very good. The equipment in the kitchen was somewhat inadequate. There was for example, Only four forks and we were seven people. Although we would not be out clean, it had been good with a broom.
Lägenheten var bra. Läget mycket bra. Utrustningen i köket var något bristfällig. Det fanns t.ex. endast fyra gafflar och vi var sju personer. Även om vi inte skulle slutstäda, hade det varit bra med en sopborste.
