About Carlos

I am an architect with 10 years of experience renting my property and friends in the most central location of Barcelona. Besides I occupy my free time in alternative activities such as yoga or tai chi, to enjoy the outdoors and long trips, I get quite conscience and experience what a good service and hospitality of a private apartment, like I want each of my guests enjoy the most authentic of Barcelona.

Carlos purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Carlos chose Ciutat Vella

The apartment is located probably in one of the best and quiet neighborhood of the historic city, yet close to the noisy and fun Las Ramblas and the Boqueria market, the latter with a variety of products and local and international food that makes life easy for local people and visitors, that is to say centrally located and isolated from noise, as well as very short distance from many sights and monuments, shops, bars and restaurants in the old town (Ciutat Vella).

What makes this apartment unique

A classic renovated and modernist XIX century apartment , in a large and bright street, always will be appreciated in a historic center characterized by narrow medieval streets.

El Mejor (Best) Apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at this excellent apartment in the heart of Barcelona - one couple and 2 singles. It was perfect - very spacious, well-equipped, comfortable beds, and the location could not be better. The Ravel neighborhood is artsy, interesting, and lively. Being so close to the Rambla, the Boqueria, Plaza España, the Gothic Quarter, the Port, the Eixample Neighborhood, the Born - all within walking distance - is just great. The internet worked perfectly. Carlos handled the reservation speedily and provided all necessary information ahead of time. Parking was also an appreciated feature. Since Carlos was traveling when we arrived, his assistance Lavinia met us to introduce us to the apartment. She was efficient and charming. There was one small issue with the bathroom vanity light - voila, Lavinia took care of it right away. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to stay in the heart of Barcelona. It will add to the amazing experience one already gets just from being in this vibrant city. A huge GRACIAS to Carlos and Lavinia. We plan on returning, every year if possible!

Amazing historic apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were positively impressed with the historic al character of the apartment and the warm welcome of our hoste. Well located with Subway, restaurants and market around. The only negative point is the lack of air conditioned. Although, this corner apartment with several double doors allows air circulation.

I recommand this apartment for any one wants to imerge in Barcelona.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your reviews and comments. I`ll be a pleasure to receive you again. About the AC, unfortunately as the building is catalogued as historic, is no AC because we don`t have any alternative to instal tub on the celling, balconies or windows; if well all our guest can apreciate it in summer season.

Los angeles apartment

  • 5 of 5

The flat is well-located and offers a good starting point for visiting most sights in Barcelona.

It is situated at the corner of 2 streets and on one side the balcony looks onto trees (and parrots in them) and a building with an ornate façade with roof statues. Lovely.

The flat is ideally placed for food shopping (you'll find a good baker near-by and a small supermarket across the road).

The flat is comfortable, light, spacious and stylish with high ceilings decorated with beautiful coving.

The kitchen is large and well-equipped.

Each room has a fan which you will need to put on in the evenings in summer, especially in the west facing rooms.

The area is quiet in the morning but the cafes and restaurants in the street below bring some life (and noise) late into the night. There is also the unavoidable passing of the council vans in charge of the emptying of the bins.

It was nice to meet the owner of the flat at the start of our holiday. Perhaps the information pack could have been sent before our arrival in order for us to book some of the recommended restaurants in advance.

The pictures posted on line give justice to the flat. I feel that the renting could perhaps be made a little simpler with one price given comprising everything.

All in all, the 6 of us (family: 3 couples) enjoyed our stay in the flat very much.

Great apartment!, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in the apartment has been an exceptional experience. Above all we are very grateful for Carlos´s warmth & professionalism. The apartment is much more than you can appreciate in the photos, especially its size, the space & details. Its also very well located, between the Ramblas & the Macba, in a quiet neighbourhood, which offers quality, good bars, restaurants & has an organic bakery & organic supermarket round the corner. Thank you very much Carlos! We hope to return in the future.
