We felt as if we were staying in the heart of Barcelona. Right outside our door, every day, there was something going on: performers, speakers, vendors. But we were not on a busy street at all. The location near the church is very special. This is a major landmark in the city of Barcelona. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast on our terrace and we were periodically entertained by the organ music from this church. The restaurants below were very popular late into the night but not noisy at all. We would often return to our neighborhood at midnight and be excited to see our little neighborhood still humming with activity. When do people sleep in Barcelona? The furnishings were lovely, clean and simple. The kitchen was adequate. No need for a large dining area since you have the beautiful terrace right there. The bathroom was GREAT! I want that same shower-head installed in my home! Lots of water pressure; easy to regulate the temperature. The washer is an added bonus. This was week 3 of our trip so we very much appreciated this amenity. Now ... the stairs going to the upstairs can be a bit of a challenge. But so what? In the middle of the night heading to the bathroom, it was an adventure. But really ... to have a 2 story place with another terrace up top makes it worth it. We would definitely stay here again and we will be recommending this place VERY highly to our friends. Thank you Flavia!

Owner's Response: I am very happy when guests write to me such a fantastic comment as it means that the work we do to have them happy during their vacation in Barcelona is compensated by their satisfaction for having spent a vacation in a nice place, in a fantastic location and enjoyed Spain where people do not sleep (or at least, not enough). thank you again for having selected our apartment and hope you will visit us next time you come to Barcelona and specially the Gothic Quarter which at present is the coolest place of all the city, day and night. Thank you

fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, which is very nice and has everything my wife and I needed for a nine-day stay, is in the most interesting, pedestrian-friendly area of the city, with unbeatable views and just feet from a beautiful church. The owner was very responsive -- when the water heater croaked, she had it replaced the next day. Definitely recommended.

great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 nights at Flavia's apartment and we trully enjoyed it! The location is perfect to get a good feeling of Old Barcelona. All the communications were easy with Flavia as well as Lucas. The appointments for the key were right on time and very pleasant.

The feeling of being so close to Santa Maria del Mar is fantastic and gives a special taste to the stay!

Very quiet at night, proximity to everything, from all the tourist attractions to the food markets!

Very nice restaurants to have tapas just minutes away!

We really enjoyed very much the terraces and it was a nice quiet break at the end of a full day!

The stairs to get to the bedroom are a little steep at first but you get use to it!

We will go back for sure!!!

We are couple with 19 months old boy.

Location is just perfect. The beach, the park, the Cathedral, La Boqueria - all are in 15 minutes walk. Born itself is lovely and has nice shopping and food spots. And this place - right opposite Santa Maria del Mar - is a pearl.

Terraces are great, we all loved it. If you are with a child you should watch him all the time because of the stairs to the bedroom and not very high rail on the terrace, but our boy had so much fun there so we did not have regrets about it. Bells also were not a bother for us, but rather a nice thing.

Only downside is a small kitchen but we made peace with it easily.

Hope to stay there again.

Many thanks from all of us.

Le meilleur de Barcelone

  • 5 of 5

Cet appartement tout à fait unique et original vous accueillera au cœur d'un très vieux quartier de Barcelone. Toutes les rue sont piétonnes (sauf de rares exceptions pour services publics et les livraisons le matin) et très animées. Malgré tout, l'appartement est très calme et on n'entend que les cloches de l'église qui ont bercé notre séjour de 2 semaines. Vous pouvez visiter une foule d'endroit à pied et les transport en commun sont tout près de la maison.Service impeccable de la part de Lucas et de Madame Flavia, la chaleureuse propriétaire. Propre, confortable, calme et sécuritaire. Vous ne serez pas déçu.

The flat is excellent, clean, unique, and in a great area. The owner and manager were very friendly, responsive, spoke excellent English, and even bought us a bottle of cava for our honeymoon! We recommend this apartment highly.
