Beautiful apartment, perfect location, loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a fabulous week in Barcelona. The apartment is perfectly located with easy access to so much on foot, and also very, very close to the bus and metro to go anywhere. The apartment is renovated in a way that is stylish and trendy, but also maintains the charm of being in a building and neighborhood that is centuries old. Highly recommend!!

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in an excellent location. On a small street just off a major street so access is terrific to many sites in Barcelona. The set up of the apartment is good for two couples, two individuals or a family as the bedrooms aren't right next to each other. All appliances worked well and the beds were very comfortable. Be ready to walk up several flights of stairs, with your luggage, as there is no elevator. That was a bit difficult.

The only challenge we had with the stay is that the owner, or someone who could help with our questions, was not easily accessible. The person who checked us in and showed us the apartment was not knowledgeable about how things worked or where things were. When we tried to reach the owner, or the guy who checked us in, the only one who picked up the phone was the driver who picked us up at the airport. And he couldn't help us.

Having figured out the challenges, I would stay there again.

Beautiful Apartment in Mediaeval Barcelona El Gotic

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautifully appointed apartment. We were two couples so it was great to have two double bedded rooms instead of the single beds so many apartments offer. The location was fantastic, walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. The Santa Caterina Market is very close and we found it much less crowded with tourists than La Boqueria. There is a great restaurant attached which we enjoyed. The washing machine was a great bonus as we had been traveling for two weeks by the time we got there. The owner was very responsive in answering my many questions, he and his father have done a great job with the apartment. We took advantage of the wine offerings they can provide for you and the selections were great, the Cava was the best we have tasted and the prices were less than the same bottles in the shops in Barcelona, so go ahead and order from them.

Felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely walk up flat is located in an absolutely fantastic location. You are right in the middle of the wonderfully charming Gothic Quarter. It's exactly where you want to be in Barcelona.

The apartment has two super comfortable bedrooms with wonderfully comfortable and cozy beds, with lovely soft sheets and big warm comforters. After a long day tour it's a bed that feels great to fall into. The back bedroom has a very unique all glass shower that keeps the room feeling open. There are ample curtains etc for privacy, it's a very unique and bohemian place with small creative little details that suit the neighborhood it's in. The apartment has great ventilation and on the street side the bedroom is not too noisy. Often people complain about gothic street noise etc, but the apartment was as quiet as one could expect in a city dwelling.

Our family of four shared the bedroom as follows. My teen son slept on pullout sofa bed, and my oldest teen slept in one of the queen sized beds. My husband and I in slept in back bedroom. Worked perfectly.

The hosts left a bottle of water, a bottle of wine and a bowl of fresh fruit which was so thoughtful, as well as set up a taxi for us to go to the airport. There is a washer, but no dryer, but for a few important necessities it will air dry fairly fast.

The one small thing that could be adjusted, that while the wifi was good, it did not extend to back bedroom which might easily be fixed by moving router to a better spot within the apartment. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you will need for a home cooked meal. I loved this apartment!

I will definitely stay here again when visiting Barcelona, I liked it that much.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very nice comment. We are really happy that you had such a nice stay in Barcelona. We will check the wifi extension to the back bedroom. As for the drier our washing machine is a dryer itself. Its needs to be programed so it dries the cloths after washing them. Thanks a lot for staying with us.We hope we can see you in the future.

Great stay, great property

  • 5 of 5

We loved this flat in the center of Barcelona. It was convenient to everything, quiet at night and a lovely accommodation that was just as pictured. Julio and the gang could not have been more helpful - everything went as they promised and as planned. We highly recommend the gastro tour! Great way to experience the city!

Incredible Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This has taken me much longer to get around to writing than it should have as our stay in the Apartment was absolutely fantastic. We were a family of five and couldn't have had a better stay in Barcelona. The location was fabulous, very safe and close to many restaurants. Victor was a perfect host and we hired his father Miguel for two days for walking tours. We saw so much of Barcelona and got a much better feel for the city than if we had stayed in a hotel. Going to the Sagrada Familia with Miguel was a highlight of our stay. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to immerse themselves in Barcelona and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
