About Carlos

I am an architect with 10 years of experience renting my property and friends in the most central location of Barcelona. Besides I occupy my free time in alternative activities such as yoga or tai chi, to enjoy the outdoors and long trips, I get quite conscience and experience what a good service and hospitality of a private apartment, like I want each of my guests enjoy the most authentic of Barcelona.

Carlos purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Carlos chose El Raval

It`s located in a central and quiet pedestrian street, yet close to the noisy and fun Las Ramblas, that is to say centrally located and isolated from noise, as well as very short distance from all kind of punblic transport and many sights of interest, shops, bars and restaurants in the old town (Ciutat Vella).

What makes this apartment unique

It`s modern and renovated apartment, always will be appreciated in a central city characterized by old streets.

Central, convenient, lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

A clean, tidy apartment set on the side of the most interesting and bustling market in Barcelona. Right in the centre of La Rambla, you really can't get more central to where it is happening. A lovely town, a great location to see it from and an ideal apartment to stay at.

Good efficient host

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Carlos was a great host and quickly fixed a small problem that we had.

The location was great- couldn't ask for more. Thank you Carlos for everything.

Great apartment in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family of 5. With two little ones under 5 years old we wanted to be close enough to walk to anything and everything...and you simply can't get any more central than this apartment. Carlos (the manager) met us out front, helped us up with our bags and got us situated quickly and comfortably. The apartment is amazingly quiet for how close it is to La Rambla and La Boqueria...you don't hear any street noise in the apartment. Can't recommend it enough...hope to back soon!

Everything was just as described in the listing

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just perfect for two/three people. We found it clean and neat with more than ample linens and kitchen supplies. The building itself is very well maintained.

The location is most convenient and walkable to many places and there is a metro stop very close by.

Since we have stayed there four times I think that speaks to our satisfaction with the property.

Only one thing, I must add and of course this is beyond the control of the owner/manager--it can get very noisy in the the early morning when the neighboring shops/stores are setting up for the day.

Great for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

I thought the apartment was great. You can't find a better location, right off the middle of La Rambla, a stone's throw from the Boqueria market, a minute from the metro. The apartment was great for our family of 5. The kids appreciated the TV. We appreciated the laundry facilities, both washer and dryer. Water pressure of the shower was great. Kitchen had everything we needed. The only concern I had was the noise on the street but my kids and husband slept right through it. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and appreciation about the location and the services. With regard to noise it`s important to make the difference the apartment is in a pedestrian street with a little circulation and no traffic noise; and as you say the sensitivity of each person depends on where they live normally.

Beautiful apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Hi!

We are a family of four with two young children, and we stayed in this apartment between April 6th - April 10th, 2014. The apartment is centrally located, about 100m from La Rambla. The Boqueria Market is conveniently located only a few steps away. The nearest subway station on La Rambla is also only 1-2 minutes by foot. Carrefour Supermarket is 5 minute walk down La Rambla. I could hardly think of a better location in the Old City. The building's front door is secured with a lock, and there is only 1 apartment on each floor. There is not much activity in the building, and during our stay we have not seen any suspicious activity or any strange characters. Actually, we have not seen anyone but the manager and the cleaning lady. Overall, we felt very safe. The apartment is very clean, with lots of light fixtures (lamps, recessed lights, ...), and had everything we needed: fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, iron, hair dryer, lots of towels, Wi-Fi internet, etc. It is a corner unit facing two very narrow streets, which makes the apartment a bit shady. On the other hand, if you like to have some privacy you would need to keep the curtains closed as otherwise the rooms are pretty much fully exposed to the neighbors across the street. We did not see this as a problem, especially because almost all streets are very narrow and this is something one should expect anywhere in the Old Town. This was really the only 'not-so-positive' thing worth mentioning, and by all means it would not be the reason for not renting this apartment again. Carlos (the Manager) is well organized, very helpful and easy to work with.

Thank you Carlos! If we ever come to visit Barcelona again, we would not look for another apartment.
