El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

Check in was efficient and they allowed to check in earlie

Hi! I was wondering if the Mercat duplex supplies extra towels for the beach, or if that is something we would need to bring with us? We have a trip booked in June.
Hello jenren27! Thank you for your message. We kindly inform you that we provide bath towels (one big and one small per guest), but not towels for the beach. Kind regards!

Hi, I see that Insidebarcelona has few buildings, Mercat & Esparteria are what I am debating now. We have three adults, which room is better with Esparteria - 1 bedroom or Mezzanine? How about with Mecat - Duplex or 2 bedroom. They are all about same price range. Any ideas and suggestions are welcome & definitely helpful. thanks
Dear Emma! Sorry for the late reply! Please contact us by email, or through our website, and our bookings department will help you choose the best apartment option for you! Best regards,

Hi, I stayed here as a part of my honeymoon in 2013.. we had magical memories in this apartment and are now planning to spend 3 nights in Barcelona again to re-live our experience. Ideally, this could be most accurately done in the same apartment - yours! The only issue we face is availability... but, is there any chance? Am I wishing on a star? I want to make this happen... for my wife and I... it truly was one of the best memories we share... can you make it happen? 19th of July to 22nd July... that's all. Help us re-live our amazing experience in your apartment... Hoping this reaches the right person to 'make it happen'... Michael
Dear Michael! Thank you for your nice message! Please contact us by email and our bookings department will check what we can do for you! ;) Best regards!

"One of the best apartments we have ever stayed in."
"Mercat Duplex was the best apartment"
