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 2010

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

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!!

large family

  • 5 of 5

This large apartment has one of the greatest locations right in the center of the Gothic/Born area with walking distance to everything from the harbour area to la Rambla and further away. Heaps of tapas, breakfast places and bars around and the area is amazingly beautiful. Step out of the building and you're right on one of the prettiest streets! We travelled as a large family and enjoyed the possibility of staying home after the kids were asleep and having a kitchen and a living room. Most importantly, the apartment is very suitable for a large family/group of friends who wants the social hang out aspect hotel rooms can't provide.

fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay for a large group in a fantastic location. The beds were really comfortable. The furniture is a bit out dated but that's part of the charm and fits perfectly with staying in the gothic area. The flat has real atmosphere. All in all this is a great place to stay & the hosts were really helpful.

so well located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is so well located. Right beside the Picasso Museum, and the Museu Europeu d'Art Moderne. Carrer Montcada is a delightful street full of bars, restaurants and little shops, and very close to a little artisan quarter full or workshops and artist studios. We were able to walk easily to the Cathedral, and Las Ramblas. The apartment was very well suited for us as a group of 5 old friends, who all wanted our own rooms! The two bathrooms worked well, and there was plentiful hot water. If you like to be in the middle of things, love authentic buildings, and enjoy street life, then do consider this apartment.
