About Karen Olsen

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

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!!

Love it

  • 5 of 5

This is the best we have stayed in Spain. The residential area is so close to places of attractions - you will be amazed. Plenty of food options, including some authentic Chinese food around us. We loved the apartment - spotless, clean, tasteful, simple decoration. We enjoyed every minute in it. Cooking was easy with all utensils. Washer and dryer work great! We just LOVE it and want to come back!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Barcelona staying here. Our host greeted us on the doorstep with a big friendly smile and led us up to his charming, beautifully kept and well equipped flat which was cosy. The staff enthusiastically gave us tips for exploring a city. We loved having fresh coffee each morning in the flat, looking down onto the narrow, street below. The apartment couldn't have been better situated for exploring Barcelona; you can feel like a local, making use of the bakery and little fruit shops on your doorstep and enjoying the local bars and coffee shops, while at the same time you can easily explore the wonderful sights and tourist attractions that Barcelona has to offer on foot. In fact, we didn't need to use public transport at all during our stay, and we loved walking everywhere we wanted to go from our cozy little base chez! We can't recommend this apartment highly enough. We would love to go back some day!

great location for groups

  • 5 of 5

A great location for groups. The Born district is probably the best place for local restaurants, bars and shops. It is also within a stones throw from the Picasso museum if that's your thing. The apartment is clean, cool and bright. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The apartment we rented was close to everything, from restaurants, to shopping, to tourist attractions, to transportation, and to the beach! The apartment was impecable and beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you need for a great and comfortable stay. Close enough to everything, but still quiet enough. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great place to stay while in Barcelona. Will definitely book again with them on our next trip.

We definitely recommend it to anyone

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the flat. The location is great, central and at the trendiest neighbourhood (Born) within walking distance of Ramblas and conveniently located close to many popular highlights of the city. The place is as shown in the pictures, quiet, clean, comfortable, beautiful and nicely decorated with a fast internet wi-fi connection. Karen was very nice, friendly and courteous, responding promptly to our questions and facilitating the checking-in/out process. We definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Lovely apartment and well located

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this flat in Barcelona. The apartment was lovely and clean and looks exactly like the photos - if not bigger! The best thing about the flat is the location as it is so central. Karen was an excellent host and the gentleman who met us at check in was on time and very helpful.
