I stayed there last autumn. It is in the heart of the old quarter, the market is very close, also a lot of restaurants and bars around. Helpful owners and nice room. I also liked that the owners cooked a very nice paella for us.

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
