The Space

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.

  • We had a great 3 day stay at Centric Attico July 6-9.
    Arrived in the evening and was met at the entrance by Brad (one of Luke's colleagues). Very friendly and helpful. Brad took us to the apartment and showed us around. The apartment is on the top (5th floor I think) so you get a good workout on the steps. Well worth the effort though. You have a great terrace and the place is clean, well equipped and exactly what we expected. The location is perfect for food, metro, fun, beach. The neighborhood is very colorful with a blend of many cultures. Highly recommended.

  • The apartment was perfect, just as described. Private roof terrace as fantastic, lovely space to enjoy the sun or a glass of wine.
    Location could not have been better, 5 minutes from La Rambla and less than 10 minutes to the beach.
    Would highly recommend the apartment to anyone looking to visit Barcelona

  • The hosting was good, exellent communication, very helpful.

    The apartment did have a great terrace (worth the 74 steps to get to it) exellent for relaxing and dining. The apartment itself was spacious and clean with good fixtures and fittings.

    Good location, close to the metro. The area was vibrant and local, not overly touristy but with some lovely local bars and restaurants. We went to one of the restaurants reccomended in the information left for us and it was fantastic, do try Sesamo if you book this apartment.

  • Really understanding hosts as we did not know until the last minute what time we would be arriving at the apartment! Cute place, really central, lots of awesome local places to eat and hang out ( we especially liked the skate bar Nevermind which was really close ). Place was clean and had everything we needed. Would happily stay there again. Lots of sun on the terrace. The stairs were a little tiring so I wouldn't recommend the apartment to anyone who's not up for the hike to the top.

  • Lovely apartment in Raval! Small but cute with everything you need close at hand. The terrace is fantastic and bigger than the photos suggest. All that is missing is a set of good loungers and you would never have to leave :-). The apartment is situated on the 5th floor which guarantees you a nice workout when on holiday. The Raval is a very lively neighbourhood with loads of bars and restaurants and a short walk to a lot of the tourist attractions. That said, we found the apartment and the surroundings quiet at night.
    Luke and his members of staff (Alex, Jeroen but mostly Pim) were fast responding, very helpful and friendly. Especially Pim made us feel right at home. Probably because he is Dutch, just like us ;-).

    All and all, we had an awesome time!

  • Very nice appartment and Luke was also a great person. Maybe hot in the summer under the top of this nice building but we were here in may and that was just perfect.
    This area in the old center is lovely. The appartment is quiete and the terrassse is just beautiful!

    Be careful if you come by car, we had to pay 170€ on the blue parking just because the time was 30 minutes off.

    Well, the appartment itself is really nice and Luke will help you to get more info if needed.

  • We had the pleasure of enjoying this beautifully decorated apartment ideally located in a quiet and charming neighborhood. The terrace is great, sunny morning to evening. We also appreciated the extensive facilities (iron, hair dryer, large comfortable sofa ..).
    2 caveats though:
    - No lighting worked on the terrace, we had dinner in the dark it's a shame
    - For check-in and check-out, we had to restart several times for someone to come agency (a little scary at the time!). Besides that, the team was helpful and smiling.
    In overall the balance is positive, thank you!

  • Absolutely great apartment!!
    We stayed in Luke's apartment for 4nights and absolutely loved it. Apartment itself is very good,very privacy, looks much better then on pictures same as the large terrace (much more large than on the pic!), which we very (email hidden) we could enjoy a lot of sun during the breakfast.we personaly were wishing for comfy bed and sofa. Many shops and restaurant around and very good locations! Really in the main center and in the nice part of the town.

    On the first day we met Luke's friend Jeromy,nice guy,he gave us handy tips what we would like to see,where to have a good meal as tapas or paella and even recommendation for good clubs.

    We would come back to this apartment! Thank you. Klara and Lukas

  • 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!
