About Karen Olsen

Hi there! I'm Karen and I'm in love with Barcelona.

I have worked in the accommodation sector in Barcelona for 5 years, I love my work!

I live here and deal directly with the owners, so I'm pleased to help visitors to find the best apartment offers in this wonderful city!

Also I love to travel and I love to rent apartments and feel like home around the world! I understand your needs!

I love to live in the best city in the world!!! Welcome to the Mediterranean heart!

Karen Olsen.

Karen Olsen purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Karen Olsen chose Ciutat Vella

El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same line.

Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minutes walk away.

El Born has been transformed almost overnight into the stylish, in-vogue heart of the city.

Small, intimate, friendly and funky quarter.

The heart and soul of this community is the wide open, tree-lined Passeig del Born. At one end of the Passeig is an impressive metal and glass structure, the former Mercat del Born covered market, while at the other end is one of the most important Gothic churches in all Catalonia, Santa Maria del Mar.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very well equipped and located in a wonderful area of Barcelona.

Enjoy the pedestrian streets, the cafés and tapas bars!

great experience

  • 5 of 5

It was a great experience. Even if we were a large group, we had enough space to be very comfortable in the apartment. The location is just perfect, right in the center and next to a metro station. Very clean and conform to the photos. Thanks again!

fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this apartment. The size was great for our family of 5 (3 adult children). Great information when we first arrived and we were allowed to move in early which was a bonus. The location is awesome, supermarket 5min walk away and you are right in amongst all the action. Incredible location. We would definitely stay again if we were back in Barcelona. Thanks!
