About Philip Spark
I'm Philip, I lived in Barcelona for more than 10 years and specially love "La Barceloneta "and the old town with all the pedestrian streets and local life with beach, markets and the cosmopolitan atmosphere. All my properties are fully furnished and have all the appliances of home! I always enjoy being hospitable with all guests and it is my biggest satisfaction that they enjoy themselves and have a memorable experience in Barcelona. My hobby is urban photography and sea activities. See you soon!
Philip Spark purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Philip Spark chose El Raval
Supermarket, baker´s, greengrocer´s pharmacy, public parking at 50 meters distance from the accommodation where to make your everyday grocery shopping, there is a famous Boqueria market for the fresh aliments for your meals. If you prefer to eat outdoors in this area you will have a large choice of International and national food just a few steps away from the apartment. Located in the heart of the city, the ideal election for groups or big families!

Amazing place, we were shocked by how big both apartments were. Have everything you need plus the location was perfect; near nice bars, rent a bike places, literally one minute from a supermarket, loads of lovely cafes. Best apartments I have stayed in and my friends agreed. Thank you!
The apartments are located in the very center. We were absolutely blown away by the location! Half a block away from Ramblas, then maybe a short block to markets. We had no idea we’d booked a place in the heart of the city so that was a lovely surprise. The place is super cute and spacious. Beds were all comfortable and had crisp, professionally laundered sheets. Towels were clean and plentiful. Gorgeous high ceilings. Good A/C and heating. Nice courtyards! Stylish place. The metro is very close and simple to use. We frequented a grocery store called condis. So many things were right about this place and the price was so reasonable that I’ll just say... 9 out of 10 for this lovely apartment in old town.
Thanks for the review! See you soon!

Thank you so much!
Loved the apartments! Clean, thoughtful touches, bright and spacious! Outstanding communication! The best location !! Walkable to the old town and various parts of the city and tourist sites. Would love to stay another time.
Thanks for your review!
If I could rate this higher, I would! We loved our stay at this apartments. Thank you Philip and all the staff for the accommodations and excellent communication prior to our stay and during our stay. The location was close to every area of town and had everything we needed close by (bakery, store, etc). The spaces were surprisingly large and offered four full bathrooms (very helpful with 7 teens!). I would recommend this space to anyone who wants to spread out. We had two families, with four adults and seven teens, and everyone had a bed and a room. Another huge plus was the dishwasher, which was needed during our stay in Barcelona after having traveled from Northern Spain and France the previous week and a half. Thank you !
The apartments were very clean and confortable. The beds and pillows were comfy. The entire family slept well. The apartment is well isolated so we didn’t hear any noise from the streets. Wifi works good. This apartment is well located right next to la Rambla.
