SPACIOUS & UNIQUE FLAT STEPS AWAY FROM CATHEDRAL - GOTHIC QUARTER

Barrio Gotico Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 mezzanine level with 3 beds, 1 bathroom with Cathedral views

OVERVIEW

All the apartments in this catalogued historic building have been individually designed and many retain their Gothic period features. This unique apartment with one-of-a-kind Cathedral views was just renovated in Nov. 2012. Situated on the second floor of a true Gothic building (sorry no Lift/Elevator), which dates back to the XII-XIII century, the renovation has been carefully done, respecting the original architecture, to expose the handmade wood beams and the stone walls. The apartment contains both vintage and loft-style-chic furniture. There are all the conveniences you would expect, including free wi-fi and a spacious walk-in shower plus one you might not - enjoying the views of the cathedral right from the living room . The large dining, living and kitchen spaces make this luxurious apartment perfect for individuals who need more space, families or groups of colleagues. PLEASE NOTE: the mezzanine level has a lower ceiling, some people might not be able to stand up in the mezzanine area.

This whole adventure started a few years back out of pure necessity. Kelly, being a Spanish-born, Korean-American but rooted in Barcelona for the past 17 years wasn´t able to find a decent long-term accommodation for all her visiting family and friends. Thus, Sal & Kelly, owners, decided to remodel one of their apartments in the gothic quarters. It started with one and continued with the rest of the building, a unique 12th century antique convent.

KELLY purchased this apartment in 1974

THE NEIGHBORHOOD & SURROUNDINGS

Situated in the heart of the vibrant Gothic District, right behind Barcelona´s Cathedral, the location of this apartment is ideal. You are a stone´s throw away from all the main attractions such as Plaza Sant Jaume ( the council square), Las Ramblas, Port Vell, Born District and Plaza Catalunya. A 2 minute walk will place you right in the L4 metro line which easily connects you to all the other main features of Barcelona such as La Sagrada Familia, Paseo de Gracia with all of Gaudi´s Buildings and high-end shops. This apartment is located in a street with only pedestrian access, making it a quiet and peaceful place but still right in the middle of all the main attractions. There is no location like it anywhere else in Barcelona.

A BARCELONA BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Kelly's unit for one week and found it to be a perfect home base for enjoying and exploring historic Barcelona. The unit was impeccably clean, well organized and tastefully furnished—just as depicted in the photos. Kelly was the most hands-on, available and engaged host we've encountered in our travels.

The building is part of the very fabric of the historic Gothic Quarter. If you enjoy imbibing the urban energy, the hustle-and-bustle, the must of the ancient alleys, then this is your home. You'll hear street performers, keep time with the cathedral bells and savor the wafting odors of the cafes. Highly recommended.

We found the smaller one-bedroom apartment just as described, so cute... and immaculate. Located in the heart of Barri Gotic, it was a great home base as we ventured out, mostly on foot, to experience the wonder of Barcelona. the owner was a wealth of information, helping to guide our decisions about restaurants as well as where to purchase that good bottle of wine. Moltes gracies, Kelly

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for a week right after Xmas at one of the smaller loft. Kelly was very responsive throughout the booking process. We arrived early in the morning and she let us check in right away. She even sent us a bottle of wine as a welcome gift, a very nice gesture!

The location of the loft is ideal--a quiet street right next to the beautiful Cathedral. Don't get fooled by the map--everything in the Born and Gothic districts are within easy walk, which makes this loft very centrally located.

We were a couple so the small loft was big enough for us. The decoration was neat. The furniture comfortable and useful, nothing fancy. All in all, highly recommend it.

ENJOYED EXCITING STAY DURING LA MERCE 2013

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in one of the smaller lofts for a week during the La Merce festival. Kelly was so helpful, sending us area info before we arrived and then more info once we got there, including a list of her recommended restaurants (we tried a few and loved them), area attractions, etc. Location is right in the middle of everything and we walked or took metro or bus to to all the sights. Loft was clean and very well maintained. Wifi Internet was avail and we never had a problem connecting. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and would return ourselves. There is a small cafe just below the lofts which was very convenient for a quick bite or beer. If you plan on visiting the Sagrada Familia, definitely order tickets ahead of time online. We did this and got in without a wait. Also easy to get from loft to Camp Nou for a FCBarcelona game which was a lot of fun and the fans are great. Overall it was a wonderful stay and Kelly was so helpful. We emailed her any questions we had and she always replied promptly.

THIS LOFT BROUGHT BARCELONA TO LIFE...

  • 5 of 5
If your intent is to experience Barcelona as the locals do, then Kelly and her team will make that happen. Our loft was like being home with all the amenities and comforts, only with old world charm and details that calmed the spirit and held captive the imagination. Everything promised was delivered and then some. This definitely exceeded our expectations. One day it rained, and Kelly offered to bring by some extra umbrellas. More than great customer service, there was a spirit of connection, she is a gracious host and definitely made our Barcelona experience top notch. The loft was clean and the people that supported that during our stay were excellent as well. It felt as though it had recently been upgraded. There were five adults and we never got in each others way in the loft. We spent a great part of every day sightseeing and visiting and exploring different neighborhoods and when we got back in the evening it was great to return to a place where we could relax and unwind before gathering more energy to see where the night would lead. One night it lead to Barca Stadium for a match between Barca and Madrid with kick-off at 11:00 pm!!! The five of us piled into the subway with 80,000 other eager fans and off we went into the night... Other days, we stayed in taking in spectacular views of the Gothic Cathedral from our front room balcony while enjoying a bottle of special Spanish wine with a selection of local cheeses and bread bought that morning from the local farmers' market. Idyllic doesn't begin to describe it. We were there to celebrate our 30th anniversary, Kelly recommended a host of restaurants for the celebration. We picked a wonderful seafood restaurant Els Pescador nestled in the corner of a small quaint plaza named Placa Prim. Food, service ambiance, amazing. The loft has a list of restaurants and other shops to enhance your stay, and all are carefully curated and live up to the recommendation. We noticed that Kelly does not recommend a place that she and her family have not tried and approve of personally. We would wholeheartedly recommend this loft to our friends and family and to all who want to immerse in a wonderful, culturally rich and magical moment during their travels abroad.
