Barcelona bargain-historical centre

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer Sant Vicenç, Barcelona, Catalonia 08001, Spain

The Space

Our apartment, in the heart of the up and coming Raval, is a 5 min walk to the Ramblas, fully equipped, fresh and airy and full of charm.

The typical modernista-tiled floors, high ceilings, original exposed beams and brand new shower room enhance its authenticity and comfort. It offers an original marble open-space kitchen, large living and dining area all to yourself. It is on the second floor with two small outside spaces.

If you like reading we have a large library of books to keep you occupied during your stay!
This is a simple and charming base from which to explore central Barcelona.

The apartment is located in the Raval close to the antique Sant Antoni marketplace. (We have made a list of the great but still secret local delights for you to explore).
Plaça Catalunya, the Ramblas, Plaza Espana and Barrio Gotico are all within 10 minutes walking distance - getting to and from Barcelona airport is also very quick and easy see directions.

The nearby Joaquim Costa street offers Barcelona's coolest bars and cafés, leading to MACBA; a must for art-lovers.

Any questions just ask!

  • We enjoyed staying in MJ and Mikes aprtement - it contains everything we needed. Coffee on the balcony before going out to find a local brunch. The neighborhood is very charming - filled with bars and cafes. El Raval is super and so is Barcelona - we would love to come back some other time....

  • Mary Jane's place was in the perfect location! It was about a $30 cab ride from the airport and she met us there to give us the keys and show us around. The place was clean and had the necessary ammenities we were looking for, including WiFi! Mary Jane even gave us a list of suggestions for restaurants in the area, we loved the empenada place and the mexican place with cheap Mojitos! The apartment is just a short walk to La Ramblas and even shorter walk to the metro which is fairly easy to figure out. I would reccomend this place to anyone!

  • My sister and I spent a week in Barcelona at MJ and Mikes place and it was amazing! The apartment was perfect for two and had anything needed in it, besides it was designed beautifully:) The location is great, you can get to anywhere very easily and the neighborhood gives you the ultimate Barcelona experience (although it can be a little bit noisy at night)!!
    Warmly recommended!

  • I stayed in Mary's and Mike place with a friend for 4 nights and we had a great time. The apartment is perfect for 2 and had all you could ask for including lots of "charme". Raval is a great neighborhood for exploring the city and to enjoy local bars and places a bit off the main tourist tracks. Communication with MJ was easy and welcoming, perfect experience. We did not feel that it was noisy at all. The only little minus was all the trash you see from the balcony which the neighbors simply throw out from their windows ;-). I'd definitely stay there again. Thanks MJ and Mike.

  • This apartment is perfect for getting a sense of what it's like to live in Barcelona! It's in an awesome spot that's not too touristy and is full of local gems - Mary Jane and Mike's list of recommendations is AWESOME. Everything you want to see is easy to get to, or a cheap cab if you're not up to navigating public transport. And a great book collection that made us wish we were staying longer!!!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Mary Jane and Mike's apartment. It's a lovely furnished, clean and centrally located apartment. Mary Jane and Mike were very pleasant and obliging. They gave us useful informations and personal recommendations for some nice bars and restaurants. Before, during and after our stay they were easy to communicate.
    Thank you MJ and Mike!

  • We stayed two friends at Mary Jane and Mike's flat for five nights. The apartment is perfect for two and has everything you need. The interior is super cool with great posters all over.
    Mary and Mike were easy to communicate with before arrival. The neighbourhood is, in my opinion, the best of Barcelona - However, that also makes the apartment a bit noisy at night.
    I can only recommend the flat to other travellers who want to be an authentically Barcelona apartment in a neighbourhood filled with small great shops and bars filled with Spanish speaking people and not the touristic crowd of La Rambla.

  • Mike nos recebeu muito bem, o lugar é muito bem centralizado. A experiência foi ótima!
