perfect for a city sightseeing.

It is a third floor without elevator.

Up to 6 person, but ideally for 4.

Located in what was the old Roman wall, what was the first Barcelona. Barcino called by the Romans.

The beautiful neighborhood known as the Gothic Quarter is called this way because the village used to be Roman, and therefore has some remnants of its glorious past. It is this mix of old and new that makes people around the world wanting to stay in the Gothic Quarter.

walking distance to the main city attractions.

  • We’ve never met with Alejandro, Ivan welcomed us when we arrived. He was a very nice host, very helpful, plus he kept our luggages for a reasonable charge when we left for Andalucia for a couple of days. However i am afraid i can not say the same positive comments for the apartment. To be honest i don’t expect much from an accomodation except location but unfortunatelly the apartment has several disadvantages despite its wonderful location. First of all bathroom was quite problematic. When we took a bath, the water came across to the living room and we had to dry the floor every time. There are two rooms in the apartment. One is completely fine (the one with two seperate beds and a small balcony). However the other one (with a double bed) is very small and doesn’t even have a wardrobe inside. Plus it has a big window hole above the wall looking to the living room, so you do not have enough privacy. No windows looking to the street, so you don’t have any natural light. Small detail but the steps to the apartment are very narrow, so if you carry luggages it may create a problem (Ivan helped us for that one, thanks Ivan!). Apart from these facts, the apartment has a great location, close to everything which may be the main reason why you may book it. Other than that, don’t expect much.

  • Logement conforme à nos attentes et surtout très bien situé.
    je recommande cet appartement

  • I would recommend this place to everyone who wants easy access when it comes to getting around Barcelona because it's very central. Barcelona Cathedral is practically a few minutes walk away and La Boqueira is easily within 10 minutes walk from the apartment. The five of us stayed in this apartment for four nights and it accommodated us pretty snuggly. Though it can be a bit small but it does not really matter for us since we're out most of the time anyway. The host (Xavi) waited for us till late night because our flight got delayed and overall, it was a good experience.

  • The apartment is small but it was clean. Xavi was a great help! Good location and close to most things you would like to see.

  • The best location you can get. Right in the middle of everything, and still tucked away on a quiet street. Big rooms, great kitchen and a super nice small gothic balcony. Alejandro was very easy to get in touch with, helpful and quick to reply. No problems with check in and check out. We had a fantastic time in this apartment (4 girls). Also lots of cozy bars, tapas restaurants and cafés around. 2 min to the main shopping street! Without any doubt a place to recommend.

  • Great Apartment located in Barri Gotic! Alejandro was very professional. His staff was very prompt and available to meet us after arriving from the airport. Alejandro was even nice enough to store our luggage at his office when we took a small trip to Seville from Barcelona.

  • The place is very well located in center of barcelona but there isn't a lot of noise. The appartment is clean, not very big, but i think it's good for some days. We were 3 and there isn't any problem for us. You can be 6 in the appartment but you will be a little bit tight.

    The metro is about 5min and there is a lot of restaurants and stores (rambla, plaza Catalunya and cathedrale are very close to the appartment).

    We don't meet Alejandro but his friend Ivan welkommed us and we could ask him if we have some questions.

    It's a very good option for some days in Barcelona, if i'll be back i'll think about it.

  • We really regret to have rented this flat, it didn't make our holidays in Barcelona succesfull. The pictures and description promised something different. First of all you couldnt close the balcony ddor so all the noise from the street came in. The flat was not cleaned proerly (floor and dishes) some of the bed sheets were stained (I made some photos and try to put them in an attachement),We couldn't cook as there are hardly any potts and pans. The equipment ist most basic, walls etc. are very used. The doors cannot be closed properly, so we once we were closed during the night and I had to open the door of our sleepingroom with my credit card.if you see the photos you can imagine that this happens frequently. This damage was superficially repaired the next day (you couldnt close it but we weren't locked in ) Though Alejandro says otherwise we never could reach him directly(mails and sms) we returned undeliverable. So the only Person we could contact was Ivan, from whom we were told, if somebody asks we should not inform that we are guests.
    First we thought that the condition of the flat is common standard in Barcelona, but we saw flats of friends rented by Airbnb (at the same time,same price and central location) which were totally different and comfortable. Last but not least Alejandro threatened to give us a bad evaluation if we post this feed back. What else is there to say?

    Response from Alejandro:

    Stefan got locked inside a room. He used a credit card to open the door. When he contacted us we repaired the door quickly, and gave him our apologies. Such things can happen. After that he started to complain about everything. He was searching the smallest things to complain. This review is not honest, it's just a revenge for that situation.

  • L'appartement d'Alejandro est très bien situé, près de la cathédrale. Il est très simple, propre, largement suffisant pour quelques jours. La rencontre, lors de notre arrivée, s'est très bien passée et agréable.
    Bref, rien à redire!

  • The apartment is very cosy and clean, and near to the centre. Metro and many places of interest are also near. We've arrived late at night, but it was not a problem to settle!
