Other Things to Note
You can smoke in the terrace:
Apartment's location is perfect - a quiet block but very near markets, restaurants galore, tourist attractions, metro. We walked everywhere, then came back to relax pre-dinner, then out again.
The layout of the place is good - bedrooms are separated from each other so we could be on vacation together but not on top of each other.
We were there during a heat wave and the place was breeze-less except for the dining room and one bedroom. No AC or ceiling fans and it was 85 (real feel 95!) - although Ramon did bring us two floor fans when we asked.
Wireless is good, went out once but Ramon came by quickly to restart the router. Generally he was very responsive to texted requests.
However the hot water was erratic at best (alternating scalding and cold in the shower) and went out twice - Ramon came to fix it each time, but overall, during our stay we only had 2 showers (out of 12) that had a consistent water temperature other than VERY COOL.
Also the patio faces onto a common wall of balconies, making one of the three bedrooms difficult to sleep in because of the other apartments' noise (TV, family gatherings, phone calls, etc. all sounded as if they were in the next room, till 1 or 2 am). Bring earplugs if you need them!
All in all we would stay here again because of the location and spaciousness of the place, but think twice due to hot water issues, noise at night, and airlessness (but that's probably better when it's not 10 degrees above normal summer temperatures, as it was during our stay.)
Ramon made us feel very welcome when we arrived and was extremely accommodating.
The flat is exactly as described, in great condition and perfect for our group of 5 to visit Barcelona for the weekend.
The flat is also perfectly located within walking distance of all the great restaurants and bars in the gothic quarter.
Definitely would recommend!
Ramon was the perfect host. He came to meet us when we were totally lost & helped us to find the apartment!! And kept in touch during the visit to check everything was OK.
The apartment was in ideal location for us. We wanted a flat in a residential area that was reasonably close to "everything" with parking nearby
Quiet , narrow (one way) street. Market, restaurants & shops close by.
Underground car park round the corner.
Easy access to museums, shops, metro etc.
The apartment is descibed as basic but that does it a bit of a disservice. As soon as our own "things" were around, it became home!
There is good mix of IKEA & traditional furniture. Because it is a traditional flat, the fittings are more solid than you'd often find in modern "restored/refurbished" accommodation. In my mind, a big plus!
All rooms are bright and nicely decorated. The terrace is large & bright.
All in all, excellent!
There were only 2 of us staying in the apartment but there was plenty of space for a full party of five and that would make the total "rent" better value.
This apartment is situated very centrally, close to many things, yet it is nice and quiet. It is only one level above the street, so there are not tons of stairs to climb. The apartment itself is basic but functional; my family and I were glad to stay there. The owner (Ramon) is fantastic: he was very responsive to our needs and requests, and responded promptly to any issues that arose.
