Apartment Friendly Rentals Hopper
Rec, 34, Ciutat Vella, 08003 Barcelona, Spain –
Start of dialog content
The Hopper apartments building has been renovated to strict rules and guidelines which conserves the historic facade of the ancient gothic quarter. This lovely, recently refurbished building is typical of the Borne area in Barcelona, there is NO elevator and the low and VERY narrow entrance to the building leads to a narrow and spiral staircase. This is not to say the entrance and staircase is not as nice and of the same high quality as the rest of the building. From the living/dining area you can look down onto Calle Rec, a small street with some great stores and good restaurants. With an open plan layout and some distinct characteristics such as original curved ceilings which are typical in some of our lovely old Catalonian buildings, any guest can relax after a day of adventuring through the narrow cobbled stone lanes of the old town. The bedroom accommodates a double bed and comes with wardrobe and drawers where the guest can put his belongings. The decor is again simple and elegant with a fresh and sharp look. The living room area has a comfortable sofa which converts into a double bed for the 3rd and 4th guests.

El Born is one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Barcelona and has become even more so over the last few years, combining a perfect balance between historical treasures, culture and “coolness”. This area is very much sought after by the locals as well as the visitors. It also boasts some of the highest property prices in the city. A main feature of this great area is the wonderful basilica Santa Maria del Mar, right in front of this magnificent landmark, Barcelona’s guests can enjoy tapas and wine and watch the world go by… Other spots not to miss are the Paseo del Born which is full of great bars and makes this area a lively night spot; not far from here is the Picasso museum… The Born also has its own market, the Santa Catarina, with its funky, bright colored roof. And finally not to be forgotten is the fantastic Palau de la Musica, which is possibly the most dazzling work of modernist architecture present in Barcelona...
