Expert review of Boria BCN

Smart aparthotel in the Old City.

Strictly speaking the Bòria is an aparthotel, and houses nine elegant rooms, of ample size and with useful-if-basic kitchens (microwaves but no ovens). On the roof is a peaceful deck for sunbathing.

Location: 

Ideally situated on the outskirts of the Born neighbourhood, just a few metres from the Via Laietana but away from the crowds and traffic. The nearby Mercat Santa Caterina is handy, given the kitchenettes in the rooms.

Bedrooms: 

There are two types of room - the suite and the junior suite. The latter, particularly, is very well priced, and has a good-sized sitting room/kitchen (with fridge, sink and microwave), a double bedroom and a large bathroom - steps lead up to large storage area over the bathroom. The look is cosy and doesn't work too hard at being trendy.

Public areas: 

The lobby is not a place to hang around (for one thing there's nowhere to sit), but has newspapers in various languages, books on design and architecture and a couple of shelves of novels in English.

Eating and drinking: 

Currently there is no breakfast served, and no bar, but plans for a café are in the pipeline.

Service: 

Service is limited - no central kitchen means no room service - but pleasant enough.
