Special offer for the last few days in February
Romatic hideaway or single getaway? Discover the real Barcelona.
Very nice interior designed flat in the Raval in centre of the Cuitat Vella (Old Town). The charming and quirky area is full of life, local characters, and is the real Barcelona. The apartment is in a building that is over 200 years old, but has been refurbished and has an elevator. The apartment has all of the basics that you would expect, plus the modern luxuries that you need when away – air conditioning, dishwasher, expresson machine, washing machine, WiFi, TV, Kingsize bed and roof terrace. The owner has a tapas bar, so there a great selection of wine to purchase in the apartment.
The layout of the apartment is fairly open plan in a loft style. The kitchen and living area is divided from the bedroom and bathroom area. The apartment has a lot of natural light, and is isolated from the street noise, as it is at the back of the building. There is a lovely 25m2 (250sq ft.) terrace that gets sun all day. The roof terrace is accessed by one flight of stairs in via the communal stairwell. there is a table for two, and two sun loungers.
The apartment is in the perfect location - only 10 minutes away from the high tourist areas - but quiet enough to feel that you are in a multi-cultural village in the original Barcelona. On the doorstep, you will find loads of bars, restaurants and supermarkets.
The Ramblas is 10 minutes away, and only 15 to Plaza Catalunya or the Port. Another 10 minutes will bring you to the beach.
TRANSPORT: 5 mins to Metro Parallel/Funicular to Montjuic, 8 mins to Metro Sant Antoni, 12 mins to Metro Liceu, 12 mins to the Aerobus (stop Urgell), 5 mins to Bus 64 to beach, 15 mins by taxi to airport (23-30€)
The apartment is ideal for Honeymooners and couples, as it is so private.
UPDATE: we have taken the feedback of guests, and a new door has been installed in the bathroom for more privacy!!
This is our third stay with Marta, this time for our honeymoon. The appartment is even great in the winter. It's in a great part of town, close enough to the tourist areas that you can go sightseeing, but far enough off the main areas that it's nice and quiet.
And if you don't go to Marta's restaurant you are missing out.
Emplacement parfait aux Ramblas del Raval, proche du métro Liceu.
Petit appartement très pratique, tout équipé, propre, avec une terrasse charmante.
Accueil adorable par Marta, aux petits soins, et organisation toujours facile (récupération des clefs même tard, idem au retour).
Le restaurant de Marta, Obsession del Raval, est tout simplement délicieux, joli, avec un très bon rapport qualité prix (tapas de qualité et bouteille vin pour moins de 20€ / par pers).
My partner and I spent 5 days at Joan and Marta's apartment in the Raval district. The apartment was perfect for our needs for the 5 days and we loved the private sunny balcony where we had our breakfast each morning. The location was great as only a short walk to Las Ramblas, La Boqueria markets and Placa Catalunya as well as a metro stop only a few minutes away to connect to the rest of Barcelona. We also enjoyed a lovely dinner one evening at 'Obsessions' the restaurant Joan and Marta own and run. The food was amazing and Marta is always on hand to help with any questions you may have about the area and what to do. I would love to stay here again! Thank you.
The apartment was wonderful. Marta was wonderful. Barcelona was wonderful!
We stayed at Marta's apartment for 9 nights and just loved our experience. We had everything we needed to prepare some meals at the apartment and loved enjoying them on the private terrace! Great location in what we found to be a more authentic district of Barcelona. Her restaurant (Obsessions) is located just around the corner from the apartment is a MUST. Some of the best Tapas we enjoyed in Barcelona!
Amazing flat and terrace: super clean, organized as an hotel plus a familiar atmosphere and friendly host
I really hope to came back and spent new days in the flat.
Authentic and multicultural district El Raval. Natural and not touristic. Simple and clean flat where you have everything at the last floor with a private roof terrace. In a walk distance (10-15 mins) - sea side, Placa Catalunya. Perfectly located. The owners: Marta - is involved from the minute one and till you leave - very kind and nice person. Thank you Marta for everything! Joan is the chef in their owned cosy restaurant nearby (3 minutes to go) with creative and worth to explore tapaserie. Check!
We loved staying at Joan and Marta's! After a week of traveling all over Spain, we were excited to settle down in Barcelona for our last week of the trip and explore the city. This was the perfect place -- walking distance to tons of sites and restaurants and very close to the train, which was helpful for a couple day trips we took to Figueres and Montserrat. The apartment is also very comfortable with a nice kitchen, so we were able to enjoy some downtime and eat in. Marta left a list of preferred grocery stores and the kitchen was stocked for breakfast when we arrived.
Fabulous experience overall. Marta ( I didn't meet Joan) was the perfect host. Communications were always prompt. The apartment itself was as the pictures show- clean and well located to transport and the sights of Barça. Marta even provided some breakfast provisions as part of the welcome-- nice surprise.
the terrace is great-- more so in nice weather... I saw the rains in Barça for a couple of days.
El Raval is maze-like. You can see the medieval origins in the neighbourhood. It was fun wandering the narrow streets getting a little lost and then finding home again.
I'd happily return to Barça and stay here.
I also tried Joan and Marta's tapas restaurant Obsessions de Raval. Delicious tapas, great wines and service.
Thanks for your hospitality, Marta!
nice, perfect located appartement near ramblas raval. thanks marta for all the help during our stay. visit marta's restaurant obsession (about 100m from the appartement) and eat some of the best tappas in barcelona !
방과 테라스가 연결되어 있지않다는 점 외에는 불편함이 없이
잘 지냈습니다. 워낙 교통이 편리한 지역이라 길을 조금 알게 되니
도보로도 어디든 갈 수 있고 가까워서 너무 좋았었습니다.
현지인처럼 살아보기르해서 BNB를 선택한 것인데 잘했다봅니다.
