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.

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.
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.
