About Carlos Guillermo

My name is Carlos and I am from Barcelona. I love the Old Town of the city, as it is where the city originated and it has a wealth of history and happening things all at your doorstep.

Carlos Guillermo purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Carlos Guillermo chose Ciutat Vella

This apartment is located right in the heart of Born, the trendiest area in town and within walking distance to most sights and equally, it has the highest concentration of restaurants in the city and the Picasso Museum is right behind.

What makes this apartment unique

Being located right at the back of Picasso Museum and Santa Maria del Mar Gothic church you live in the middle of history and are in walking distance to most sites, as in this part of the city, all the sights are concentrated.

Needs some updating

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed 5 days in the apartment after the property we had reserved had a last minute water leak in the shower. This one isn't how it looks in some of the photos, which look 10+ years old. The vinyl on the kitchen chairs is split. The red leather couch is a complete split mess and now has a cover on it that needs cleaning. If you don't mind that and the street noise at night, then this is a good place for you.

I agree with others that Carlos and Guillermo did a great job leading up to the rental, etc.

Excellent location and accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here Oct 4-11. Our family of 5: 3 adults and 2 children ages 8 and 11 stayed in this flat which is located near everything you need. Wonderful nearby restaurants and cafe's, lovely boutiques and markets. Plenty of exercise on the narrow stairs to the 4th floor flat which allowed us to indulge in pastries from Hoffman's bakery right down the street. The washing machine is very helpful when traveling with children. It did get very warm- up to 79 F so we needed the AC to cool the apartment but the small room with bunks was a bit stuffy. we opened the window and used the fan. Unfortunately the lower bunk still did not get enough airflow, so we moved our son onto the floor in the master bedroom and he slept fine. AC in the two larger bedrooms was great. The shower still needs fixing but still usable. Despite these minor flaws, I would stay in this flat again: Beds are comfortable, kitchen has everything we needed, bathroom is clean and modern, it is spacious enough that everyone could have some privacy and most importantly the location is unbeatable. Excellent Tapas Bars, especially Taperia on Princessa and Saboc near Carrer del Rec, Demasie for coffee and pastries in morning was open slightly earlier than other cafes. There is a cafe just a few feet away from the flat but was not open before 9am. Museo de Xocolat the park are a few blocks away- another great aspect for children that need some running space. The Market del Born is now a cultural exhibit and sheds light on the the historical development of the area and the tyrannical times under Franco. Saturday and Sunday are great for the Artisan markets and for a pick up game of football with some local children. easy access to the Metro which took us all over the city. Also the Tourist "hop-on-hop off" buses pick up near the Santa Catarina market. and will take you past the breathtaking Gaudi sites that are a must see Not too close to the very touristy La Rambla but close enough to walk there to enjoy the street performers. Too relax- enjoy a mojito on the beach and if it's too warm- just remove your top!

Our hosts:

Carlos gave guidance for taking the taxi from the airport to the flat- unfortunately I lost the directions in Spanish but our driver found our way. Guillermo waited patiently to meet us as there was a slight delay out of the airport. He was most helpful and gracious. He has plenty of tips from what sites to visit and how to access them,the nearest grocery and a taxi for departure

An amazing location in fantastic city

  • 4 of 5

This apartment has the best location ever, we have just come home from a five day trip to this city that has everything, from culture to the beach to history to the most varied foods. The apartment is great, the bedrooms are very well decorated and comfortable. The living area, has everything a holiday maker needs, (but has only one seat for relaxing on). The kitchen area is really well equiped, as is the laudry area. There was a few problems with the shower when we stayed, which we feel should have been fixed before we arrived. We were met by Guillermo, who has to be the most knowledgeable and passionate person Barcelona could ever have, his information and tips about the city made our holiday really enjoyable, he is a true treasure!! I would recommend this apartment to everyone, except those who are not able to handle the 7 flights of very steep narrow, but very historic stairs. To stay in the heart of this vibrant and historic city, is an experience everyone should have once in their lives, we loved it and can't wait to come back,

Owner's Response: Glad to learn this guest enjoyed their stay. Re the shower issue mentioned here, guests leaving the day before broke a piece of the shower; we were not informed of it until we accessed the property and went to the shop where they told us being a specific item ( not a standard one) it needed to be requested to the factory and that takes unfortunately some time; this is why when this guest was there the issue had not been sorted

An amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

This appartment is very well located in the heart of the old town and the Born district. The size of the appartment is great by European standard: we were 3 adults and 2 children and we had plenty of space. Air conditionning was a must and they were working fine.

Carlos and Diego provided us with great recommendation on the resauants in the area. They have also been very helpful in helping me recuparae a lost luggage and confirming a cab to go back to the airport.

We had an amazing time in Barcelona and the location of the appartment was definitely a part of it! Thank you very much to both of you!

Born in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer 4 jours à Barcelone dans ce bel appartement situé dans le quartier du Born. Il est très propre, bien équipé et surtout très bien situé. Nous étions 5 et l'appartement me paraît bien adapté jusqu'à 6 personnes ( il n'y a qu'une salle de bain mais on fait avec). Le quartier est très sympa, très animé, avec pleins de restos, commerces, et c'est surtout un bon point de départ pour la visite de la ville. Il est relativement calme . L'accueil de Guillermo pour la remise des clés est vraiment parfait : très ponctuel, il nous a donné pleins renseignements sur Barcelone. Les contacts avec Carlos sont très faciles et très rapides et efficaces.

En conclusion un très bon séjour, dans un bel appartement très bien situé. Je n'hésiterai pas à y retourner.
