The Space

This is a private apartment rental just 2 minutes from Las Ramblas, yet on a quiet street in the stunning historical core of Barcelona.
It is suitable for families, couples and responsible groups of friends, who want a relaxed and cosy base for exploring Gotico and beyond.
All of the bedrooms are at the back meaning that you are guaranteed a good night's sleep!
The apartment has good light from front to back with a lot of space, modern fittings mixing with shabby chic detail in its exposed stone walls, wooden floors and beams set off with antiques and original artworks.

The dining room, kitchen and lounge areas are partially open plan, (email hidden) to relax and unwind over breakfast and dinner.

The apartment just around the corner from Plaza George Orwell, a bohemian square full of cafes, restaurants and shops. This is a good area for Barcelona nightlife.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Zara was great! She was very communicative and helpful. The apartment was in a great location. It was hard to leave the neighborhood because everything is so nice there, from the local restaurants to people watching from the balcony. Highly recommended, we would absolutely stay there again.

    The apartment itself is great with loads of character and Zara was very flexible with the arrival and departure times which was really helpful!

  • Had a great long weekend in this apartment. Zara was really helpful, met us when we arrived at 23h00 and gave us a lot of good tips for bars and restaurants. It was also nice to know that she was on hand, on the other end of a phone, if we had any difficulties!

    The apartment is really nicely decorated - very trendy :). As some of the other reviews say, it can be a little dark but there's plenty of lighting to make it look nice, and you probably should be out seeing Barcelona during the day anyhow! I imagine that most of the old town apartments are like this due to the narrow streets. It's also very well located, in the old town, and close to Metros.

    Thank you for a great stay!

  • A very charming apartment right in the center of the gothic neighborhood. Lots of space + it's really close to Las Ramblas, Barceloneta and metro stations. We had a very nice stay and Zara was super helpful with handy tips and recommendations.

  • Zara and Lauri were very helpful, their communication was excellent and showed us everything we needed to know at the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was exactly as described (and bigger than expected!) and in a fantastic location right in the heart of Las Ramblas, great for getting around. Zara also left a great city guide with some fantastic reccommendations of where to eat and visit. The apartment was great value for money, especially for larger groups looking for a perfect location. There was everything we needed in the apartment (all home comforts like plenty of sheets, towels and a washing machine!) and we would definitely go back to stay there again :)

  • Zara est charmante, l'appartement est très joli, idéal pour les chaudes journées d'été probablement, dans une rue calme à deux pas de la Place Georges Orwell parfaite pour des tapas au soleil.

  • nous étions 5 filles et l'appartement était (website hidden) est grand,il y a 2 salles de bains,il est (website hidden) literie est bonne aussi.l'appartement est très bien situé en plein centre du coeur vivant de Barcelone.on a tout fait à pied par contre il est un peu sombre et un peu bruyant.
    Zara est très gentille très accueillante et nous a bien renseigné sur la ville et le fonctionnement de l'appartement.
    En bref je le recommande car on s'est toutes régaléés car le lieu et la situation était parfait.

  • Fantastico appartamento,grande,funzionale e in una posizione perfetta. A due minuti dalla rambla, a cinque dalla barceloneta.
    Grazie Zara siamo stati benissimo peccato che fossero solo tre giorni!!!
    Lo consiglio a chiunque cerchi una casa pulita e in ordine nel centro della città e la proprietaria di casa è stata fantastica!

  • We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment, loved the vintage styling. This is a huge spacious apartment, great open plan living/dining/kitchen area that was well stocked with all you could want. We didn't cook but there were plenty of utensils and pots and pans if you wished too. The wifi is ridiculously fast, the fastest I have ever used! The bedroom layout is a little quirky, the main bedroom is off of a smaller one, there is a door between the two but no door between the smaller room and the hallway. The other bedroom has plenty of beds and a curtain between it and the hallway. This was fine for us but if you are with people you don't know too well you might not be comfortable with this arrangement. There are loads of great places to eat in the area and it is perfectly located, we walked everywhere from here: Casa Batllo, Sagrada Famillia, Parc de la Citadella, Parc de Montjuic and everywhere in between. We really loved this old area, it has so much character and a surprise around virtually every corner. Zara was very friendly and had lots of tips for us on restaurants and bars and advice on transportation around Barcelona. Zara had another check-in to do around the same time so she suggested a cafe in the plaza at the end of the street where we could have coffee, she text to let us know she was on the way and was there before we had finished. Even though it was her birthday she didn't rush through things and gave us plenty of time to ask all the questions we had. Would definitely recommend this apartment and Zara as a host.
