About Karen Olsen

Karen Olsen purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Karen Olsen chose Sant Pere - Santa Caterina i la Ribera

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

This 160m2 holiday apartment in Barcelona is the ideal choice for large groups heading to the Catalan capital!

The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with all amenities.

You are welcome!!

Happy

  • 5 of 5

It is not the first time as I am in Barcelona, so I already know which location is good for short term stay in the city. I was happy with my choice, we had a nice stay at Karen's place! This place is really big, many bedrooms, nice dinning table to have some quality time with your group, 2 bathrooms . The kitchen is fully equipped, the most important thing: the mattresses were comfortable and made our sleep easy. The location of the apartment is one of its biggest asset, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted and if we went further we were able to jump into the metro, there is metro stop just right by the apartment. Thank you for having trusted us with your apartment.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay in Barcelona!! In a GREAT location in the Gothic Quarter. Easy walk to metro, less than 5 min. To the La Boqueria it was 10 min or less walk. It was quaint and cozy, very clean and BEAUTIFUL design. It was everything I could imagine for my stay in Barcelona. The host is very quick to response and check in and check out is very easy. He will meet you with keys and show you in, easy as that. I’d recommend this to everyone and stay here again!!!

The place was so lovely

  • 5 of 5

The place was so lovely and everything we were looking for in Barcelona! It is the perfect size for 10 people. The location is everything, you can walk so many places.. It is steps away from the Barcelona Cathedral, shopping, great food, not far from the port and so much more. The neighborhood of this apt is called El Born and we loved loved loved this area. We checked out a lot amazing restaurants (Arcano, Lonja de Tapas and El Xampanyet were our favs), shopping, flamenco dancing at Palau Damases, museums and bars in the area. We pretty much ate dinner and went to the bars in this area every night (Bar Sauvage, Stereo 18 & Creps del Born were our fav bars). The Mercat de Santa Caterina was really cool and there is a cafe walking distance called 365 that we went to every morning! Our flight was delayed so we got there a few hours later than expected but the staff was still very accommodating and welcoming. Although it was late she stayed to show us around on a map of the city and gave us lots of great recommendations. All of the places she told us to go to were soo good!!! Thank you for welcoming us, we can't wait to return in the future!
