Although I recognise the hotel from other very accurate reviews, I feel compelled to add my own. Firstly finding the place proved difficult as there is no sign outside it that shows that it is a hotel. Our taxi from the airport refused to take us down what amounts to a dark alley and so we walked with our rolling... More

We stayed in a junior suite on the first floor on the street side. The room was really big, clean, with a full kitchen. The design was pretty cool. The only problem was the noise coming from the street at night, so might not be for you if you're a light sleeper. Maybe other rooms were quieter. The hotel does... More

I booked this through Expedia expecting it to be vetted. The hotel and rooms are very nice but the area is dreadful. The hotel is sited down an alley off the main road. The alley is full of graffitti and signs warning of thefts. Despite being really careful both myself and my riend was mugged on our way back to... More

Booked this hotel due to great reviews on tripadvisor and wanted to be in the Born area. It was expensive and looked good on website. Worst things: lighting - about ten different lights and lamps to switch on. No sunlight. 2 windows had screwed shutters so you could not open. Noisy - not just street noise but we could even...

I would not recommend this hotel at all. We stayed there for three nights with two kids. First of all I still don't understand why they charged extra 50 euro per kid since we payed already for a family suite. But anyway, the location was good considering how close it is to the major attractions, but the street itself is... More

It was challenging finding accomodations for a group of four in Barcelona. So we ended up being very pleased with Boria Bcn - fantastic location nearby the Picasso Museum, charming rooms, kitchenette equipped with a refrigerator to store water and snacks, and a living room/common area where we could hang out comfortably at the end of the evening. A complimentary... More

We stayed at Boria for our 10 days honeymoon in august 2007. A perfect choice for honeymooners with its luxurious and spacious rooms.

Found Boria at the last minute and it was a great find. The location was great as we much prefer El Born vibe to Las Ramblas. That being said, it was a 15 minutes to Las Ramblas so you're actually very centrally located. Also, the street that it's located on is very quiet which was a plus for a good... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
