The apartment surface is 120 square meters (1292 square feet).
Ideal central spot to use as hop on point to visit all Barcelona, easy and convenient. The apartment is located less than 10 min. walking of almost all the tourist attractions of Barcelona. Shopping, restaurants, bars and most attractions are close by.
2 bedrooms at the front, 1 big bedroom at the back, which allows better intimacy. Double bed in each bedroom + one single bed in the back bedroom. A cleaned apartment with fresh linen is always provided.
Living room and the main bedroom have big balcony overlooking the Ramblas, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the activities, music and energy of the most famous street in Barcelona. The apartment is located opposite the Liceu Opera House and 2 minutes from the world famous Boqueria food market.
The living room is sunny, with lots of space, sofa, TV and internet. There is a dining table next to the balcony. There is AC and double-glazing.
A fully equipped kitchen is provided where you can cook your fresh produce from the Boqueria Market. Microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker... All necessities are provided and included (dishwasher soap, washing machine soap, trash bags etc)
Bathrooms are simple and clean. Fresh towels and hairdrier provided.
The property is located in the heart of Barcelona, with the Ramblas at your doorstep. This area is called Ciutat Vella or Barri Gotic (the historical Gothic Quarter).
The Gothic District passes between the two most important avenues of the old city, Via Laietana and Las Ramblas, and between the Catalonia square. And the sea is just ten minutes on foot from the apartment. A very pleasant walk through the harbour.
This District constitutes the heart of the old city of Barcelona where the walled Roman city was located (the origin of present Barcelona).
Also, the fantastic Art Noveau style Cafe de la Opera is close to the apartment. You can enjoy breakfast or some tapas. Good value for money.
The Ramblas is a street full of energy, colored flower stands and busy day and night.
Five minutes walking distance through the flower stands you can find the Boqueria market (listed among the best markets in the world). You can do grocery shopping (avoid the middle pricey stands ;) and you can buy nice fresh bread to go with your freshly brewed coffee.
Opposite the apartment there is a metro station (Metro Liceu) and buses (14 and 59) that will take you to the Olimpic Village or the beach area or Barceloneta, the old fisherman's neighbourhood in less than 15 minutes to enjoy some paella. Public transport is available to take you conveniently to all areas of Barcelona.
The apartment is antique, beautifully decorated in a vintage style, with art noveau lamps.
This is a family run apartment and we will all be happy to help you and assist you in anything we can to help you enjoy your holidays in Barcelona. We are travelers ourselves and we are familiar with the necessities when living abroad.

I am a Barcelona local who loves her city and is happy to share any recommendations and experiences that will help you enjoy Barcelona from local point of view, not intoxicated by tourists.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000
Is a beautiful lively area in the center of the city. You will have a vintage experience, living in an apartment with curiosities and antique building and deco. Where ladies in the 19th century tried out their outfits, since it was once used as a tailor for the Opera House.
Enjoy the vibrant center of Barcelona and shopping and the Gotic quarter and the Cathedral are just around the corner. Super central location, after long hours of walking, you enjoy a quick rest & stop at your apartment, for a quick break, for a snack and then you can go back to your tourist race. Grocery shopping in the Boqueria market and close by supermarkets, you can store some food at home and avoid spending extra money on overpriced touristic food.
Great location in city centre, one step away from EVERYTHING: Gothic, Cathedral, museums, etc.
Right in the middle of the old city, narrow streets with immense charm, little churches and cafes are right round the corner.
The Metro is literally at your doorstep and the Boqueria Marquet only a 5 minute walk away... UNBEATABLE location.
The apartment is well kept and clean, with beautiful art deco lamps, lots of personality and charm.
Bedrooms facing la Rambla are well soundproofed. Double glazing and antique doors provide COMPLETE isolation from the noise on the street. Big living room, lots of space. Back room is huge. Plenty of closet space in all rooms!
The only difference with the pictures is the bathroom, instead of a bathtub, there is a walk in shower.
Apartment is super comfortable and has lots of space, ideal for several people.
Very good value for our money, would definitely come back again!
we have stayed at this apartment for 7 nights, 2 adults and 2 teens.
the fees were approximately half of 2 hotel rooms.
the location was great: right in the middle of la rambla, a minute's walk to the liceu metro station, 2 minutes from placa real and so on. taxi available in seconds.
eli, the owner, met us at the apartment when we arrived an hour earlier. did not charge extra for the early entry, and did not take the 150 euros deposit. she was very informative, gave us tips for attractions and safety.
as for the apartment itself: we knew we are coming to an apartment which was labeled gently as "vintage", but it was truly misrepresented in the pictures.
-spacious apartment, 3 large bedrooms. the ones facing la rambla have double glazing.
-fully equipped kitchen , including an assortment of dishes, dishwasher, washing machine (which we didn't use), fridge, microwave, induction hob.
-plenty of hot water for 4, clean towels.
- needs thorough cleaning and renovation: many loose/broken floor tiles, broken door handles, non closing closets.
- all beds and mattresses old, our kids slept ON the blankets to soften the bed.
-larger bedroom facing la rambla has no closet (as in pics), no extra blanket, glass doors that do not provide privacy. woke to the sound of the supply truck to the restaurant below which left its engine running every morning.
- smaller bedroom facing la rambla does not have double glazing or shutters, nor does the curtain close completely- so it was unusable. it's a good thing we were not a larger party.
-back bedroom does not have double glazing so it was very noisy up to the little hours.
-bathroom very small and smelly! the tiles are painted over and the the grout was moldy. we were told the vent has to be on constantly- but that didn't help.
-instead of the a hot tub there was a tiny walk in shower with a curtain that did not stop the water. we do not mind that it's a shower, still the photo shows the bathroom before this change was made, and all the website says is "clean and simple bathroom"-which it's not.
- the marble stairs to the apartment are steep, worn out and slippery.
- the apartment next door was being renovated during our stay almost around the clock, so we woke up and surprisingly went to sleep to the sound of hammers.
all in all: not a great property on a great location.
website photos need to be updated.
Great location, clean and spacious apartment. Eli was an awesome host, she gave us great tips and advice. Apartment had all you needed - we shopped daily at the market up the street for meals (delicious and very inexpensive). Beach was a good walk but you can always use transit at the door or rent a bike! We will be back again.
Having a week off from the kids and needing a getaway, we decided on Barcelona. We had never visited Barcelona before and knew nothing about the layout of the city, so after umming and ahhing over a bunch of listings we plumped, luckily, for this gem.
Fantastic location! Smack dab in the middle of Barcelona, right on the rambla, you couldn't ask for an easier start each day to go do all the touristy things! There's a underground station just outside the door and across the road is the opera house. Even a walk to the big Bocaria market-place only takes a few minutes.
We just wanted to say thanks to Eli, the owner. Our plane was delayed and we were over an hour late getting from the airport to the flat. But she was still waiting for us, thank god, and gave us a great welcome and took her time taking us through her beautiful place. Lovely old decorations throughout and a great size. (It almost seemed a pity we hadn't brought the kids as there was tons of room. Almost!) The flat looks right out on the rambla, with two little balconies, where we sat out most evenings and had a glass of wine.
Barcelona is a big place, full of restaurants and bars and places to visit, but honestly it's very difficult to know where to start.
Thanks again Eli! She told us to call or text if we needed any help, so we did,...a few times.
She was so helpful and just added that extra something you are looking for when you get to a new city and don't know anyone, or even which direction to start walking in. She advised us on what areas were good to go out in, the best places to visit, where not to wander and gave us some great tips on some restaurants and bars she frequents, which turned out to be great advice and made us feel we had had a much more authentic stay. (Would you know where to go to have real 'Swiss chocolate and churros' with the locals?!)
And luckily she showed us how to keep our eyes open for the cities pickpockets, and we left with cameras and wallets intact.
Just wanted to say thanks again for looking after us Eli, you were a great host. We will definitely come visit Barcelona again! Maybe with the kids next time!
M & C
This apartment gave us access to everything in the Old City in minutes. Spent a week there, still didn't touch all that we could have. Subway stop in front, endless bars, restaurants, shopping, parks and market within blocks. Safe, comfortable, very quiet despite the constant crowds on La Ramblas below. Eli was a generous help with direction and ideas. We didn't spend much time there but to sleep and prepare for the next outing, but it had plenty of room for 4 adults, clean and comfortable. Walk or quick train/taxi to all the Gaudi and other attractions, beaches, museums. Barcelona was a non-stop, diverse and friendly international experience for this family's first European vacation, and this apartment was the perfect place to start from.
If you are expecting American standards like the Hilton, you may be disappointed. But if you want Barcelona and location, location, location, well, this is for you! After I saw the apt, I was relieved to know it was as expected: huge rooms, and CLEAN. We loved the huge doors that open to the balcony overlooking La Ramblas, and did I mention the WIFI? We were able to facetime and text our families any time. The two bedrooms at the front were VERY quiet, thanks to those massive double windows/doors, and the back bedroom was a little noisier but we slept soundly anyway. I did notice a bathtub in the photos, but the tub is now just a shower. The additional half bath came in handy since there were 4 women. The only problem we had was the stairs...my mother and her friend, both 80, struggled with their luggage but once we were up, all was fine. I will definitely recommend this apartment to my friends, and I will stay there again. Remember: location, clean, huge, 1.5 baths, wifi, great price! Sorry we didn't get to meet Eli as she was out of town. Next time, Eli!
