About this listing
if you are looking for a quite flat in the middle of a forest... THIS IS NOT YOUR CHOICE!!!! our flat is located right a the heart of the Gothic Quarter (Old City) - a treasure made of little pedestrian streets, plazas, and private passages (in fact, the flat is located at one of those private streets)
-Set of towels (shower towel and hand towel) for each guest.
-All bedlinen and covers etc.
-Every normal mod con. for an apartment (washing machine, fridge, dish washer, dryer, cooker, toaster, electric over/microwave.
-Clothes iron and ironing board
-Tv, video and CD player
-Guide books on Barcelona and Catalonia, maps etc. etc.
-Starting supplies in kitchen cupboard, i.e. coffees, teas, etc.
-Complementary welcome refreshment drinks

Gothic Quarter offerts major cultural and social activities: museums, galleries, cafes, restaurants and bars..... to enjoy day and night (depending on personalities)
entire quarter is majorly pedestrian... but the famous RAMBLAS are located just 2 minutes away with all transports needed (2 metro stops, buses, and taxis) waling to the beach could be a 10 minutes trip also
the flat is a total combination of an old atmosphere with a new design approach and all requirements to enjoy the city
we try to facilitate everything for our guest... but we expect a minimum respect to the flat and neighborhood (no loud music or too much noise during the night / no big parties.... etc...)
we accept pets... but they must behave properly
Jose's apartment was in a fantastic location, while noisy at times that's exactly what the area is about and exactly how Jose outlines it in his description. The apartment itself was very spacious and comfortable. Had a great stay, the area is amazing I would definitely stay at Jose's apartment again.
Love this place! Location could not be better. A bit noisy on the weekend, but fine on the weeknights, and just blocks from La Rambla and the harbor. The host was really great a communication and made the check-in process super easy and smooth. We especially appreciated the AC and washer and dryer here! Large open kitchen and living room made it a great space to hang out in. Highly recommend this place!
This is a well appointed flat in an extremely central location two minutes from Las Ramblas. The entrance and stairway may be shabby chic but the apartment is comfortable with every convenience (for example, a hairdryer for my 19 year old daughter). Great communication with Jose and an easy checkin. Two things to note - this is a city centre location so it is noisy through the night and the flat is four floors up with no lift. Neither spoilt our stay but they might be important for yours.
José is a great host and a very friendly person. He picked us up at the ramblas and guided us to his apartment. We spent there a couple of days with our two kids, and we all loved the place. It was clean, spacious with a nice kitchen and comfortable beds.
As it is stated in the description by José, it can be a little bit loud at night. On the other hand, it is ideally located in the heart of the city and close to the port and beaches. It was perfect for us.
Great host and a beautiful apartment! Super central close to nice bars and restaurants and the beach! I would suggest this place to everybody!
José is the best host, always a warm welcome and some nice and usefull tips for your stay.
On the day of my arrival in Barcelona I was surprised by sudden wind and tried to find shelter for my doughter in the small streets away from the ramblas. I lost my way and came late to the appointment with Jose, but even that he solved with a smile.
The apartment is amazing, as I said before, it's a place of beauty, very nice design, simple and tasteful the way we like it. All the comfort needed, clean, spacious, really great. The first time I went as a couple, this time I went with my four year old doughter, and both times the place was really convenient. Ofcourse, as José writes in the description, it's not the most quiet place, Barcelona doesn't sleep and there's ambiance under the windows all night. But that's also because the place is so central, it's the perfect base from where to visit the whole city. I love this appartment, it feels a bit like 'home' already.
The host was very responsive to my emails and always ready to help when I had a question. He prepared a booklet with the best restaurants and other activities that are in the vicinity of the apartment. The apartment is exactly as described in air bnb
