This Atico Apartment is recommended for couples and friends who value a lovely apartment (at an affordable price) with a sun-drenched private terrace and very centrally located in the interesting neigbourhood called "El Raval".
This Atico 1 Bedroom apartment is well furnished and comfortable and will no doubt be a pleasure to wake up to in the morning or retreat back to at during the day or evening.
If the comfortable apartment isn't enough the private sun drenched terrace will be a pleasure to enjoy and possibly even enticing enough to enjoy all thoughout the day.
With respect to the neighbourhood, this very centric "El Raval" is an interesting and exciting area in Barcelona however it is not for everyone. Some love it and others do not but it does have a special personality and character all of its own that makes this area attractive for many, both during the day and at night.
The area is vibrant, historic, authentic and full of personality. It (email hidden)ly, multi-cultural neighbourhood with a huge variety of tempting cafes, restaurants and bars. The area has also become fashionable being host to a wide variety of art studios, galleries and trendy bookshops, not to mention the imposing MACBA (museum of modern art) and CCCB which is the neighboring exhibition centre.
In El Raval you will also find little boutiques and small privately owned shops. This neighburhood is always open and you can find food at almost any hour of the day.
As your hosts, we will ensure that you have a wonderful time if you do choose this apartment.
Great place! The flat was as describe on the site. It's very well located in El Raval you can easily walk everywhere. It is clean, very comfortable and quiet. The terrace is amazing and way bigger than the picture suggest.
On our arrival (which was late on a friday night) we were nicely welcomed and given lot of tips of where to go. Luke is very reactive and helpful.
We had a perfect stay. The flat is very central, spacious and well equipped. Fast internet connection. Ilija sent us a mail with some tips about restaurants and tapas bar...we really appreciated it! Don't mind about the stairs afterall it is the price to pay for having a silent flat in barcellona!
Tutto Perfetto, accoglienza, simpatia, gentilezza, appartamento in ottima posizione, pulito dotato di tutto, El Raval il quartiere del momento di Barcellona!!! Optate per Luke non ve ne pentirete!
We loved our stay in the apartment. It was so central to everything and the terrace was fantastic. We walked everywhere.
Alex and Luca were really helpful. Alex met us right on time after our flight into Spain and showed us around the great apartment. He also had prepared several pages of restaurant tips for our stay.
We made good use of the washing machine and huge clothesline!
A great experience
Create location, the terrasse is such welcoming after a day walking around. Everything for food, bars, market, public transport are a stonethrow. El Raval is really the typical Barcelona!!
Really nice place. Nice terrace to have a breakfast to start the day or have a couple of beers to end it in the evening. Or then just have a lazy day and read outside instead of going anywhere. Terrace was like having a private yard.
Steep and narrow stairway to the top of the building though. No elevator. Keep that in mind when considering this place.
In my opinion the neighbourhood is really nice but it might not be for everyone. You just need to have enough common sense to avoid the most shady characters and not to wander the darkest alleys in the middle of the night. Take care of your money. Don't look lost and stand too long in a streetcorner. Don't get too drunk alone. Basic stuff. If you have experience about lively areas in big cities then you'll have no problems in El Raval.
I'd recommend the area and especially this apartment. Love the terrace. If you are going to Barcelona then this is a really good place to stay!
We had a great stay at this pace in Barcelona, the situation is perfect and the fat is really really nice. The walk up the stairs is quiet hard but it's the price to pay ot have such a nice terasse :)
L'appartement (très propre) est super bien placé (website hidden) terrasse et sa climatisation sont un vrai plus pour passer un agréable moment à Barcelone !!!!! Luke est très sympa et très réactif. Un super séjour ... à refaire rapidement .
Beautiful, clean apartment with everything you would ever need on holiday. Plus it is in a great location.
Luc and Alex were great hosts. They responded promptly to all of my questions and provided some great tips on what to visit, how to get around and where to eat upon our arrival.
Would definitely stay here again.
This house is wonderfull. In a quiet spot in the city, it offer the advantage to have a huge terrasse well suited for reading and having a nice cold ice tea, which is something I might have abused from...
Luke was a wonderful guess who accomodated in the best way although my visit was quite short notice.
The house was clean and well equiped. I plan in going back in Barcelona next year and for sure I will try to arrange another stay in this little oasis!
