We rented bikes for the day at this location. The service was excellent, they provided a map and explained where the bike lanes were, spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The bikes weren't great, mine was too large for me and the brakes didn't work well, take a little test drive before you leave the shop and ask for... More

We had budget bikes for 4 out of our 5 day stay in Barcelona, and we were able to cover a lot of ground and explore the city like we never thought we could. Barcelona isn't too big, and some of the major streets have proper bike lanes so it's relatively safe - just got to keep pace, these bikes... More

The experience of a city varies dramatically depending on the mode of transportation. You could do a lot worse that Budget Bikes in Barcelona. The staff is friendly, rates are moderate, and bikes are reliable. Locks, helmets, baskets, provided on request. Recommended.

My friend and I rented bikes here upon our arrival in Barcelona. Apparently the place is run by a Flemish guy and his Dutch wife/girlfriend, and both of them started talking to us in Dutch which was convenient. Rental of 2 bikes for 2 days with insurance was a bit above 60 euro, so definitely not very budget. The bikes... More

It´s nice to hear that you had a great time with the bikes, even though there where some troubles during your stay here. When we rent out bikes for several days, we always provide them with small LED lights to place in front of the bikes, If they don´t work you can go to one of our four nearest shops... 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.
