TERRAZA; Great, quiet and bright ATTIC apartment in the heart of Barcelona.
Unique. Lovely stylish and very quiet apartment right in the centre of Barcelona.
With its own wonderful private roof terrace, all for you, not overlookind by other buildings, and with direct access from the apartment. 360º panoramic views over the whole of Barcelona and surroundings. With large table and chairs for dining outside.
IT IS LOCATED IN ONE OF THE LIVELIEST, MOST ETHNICALLY DIVERSE AND THE "COOLEST" PART OF BARCELONA, THE RAVAL, RIGHT IN THE CENTRE OF BARCELONA, JUST OFF THE RAMBLAS.
Very quiet for its location. It is located on the inside of a building on a pedestrian street. So there is very little traffic noise or pedestrian pedestrian noise. Obviously, there is usual neighbour noise (what you would expect from a street residential building.)
Loads of wonderful natural light.

AND THEN THERE'S ME YOUR HOST. I NEARLY ALWAYS MEET YOU AND GREET YOU, AND ANSWER ALL YOUR INQUIRIES AND GIVE ALL THE ASSISTANCE I CAN ON THE APARTMENT, THE CITY AND YOUR VISIT. I AM NOT SPANISH ORIGINALLY BUT HAVE BEEN LIVING IN BARCELONA FOR 27 YEARS ...... SO I KNOW IT AND THE INHABITANTS PRETTY WELL.
All the apartment and ALL the terrace!!!!!! All for yourselves!
I nearly always like to welcome guests and chat over a water, juice or tea, sometimes a beer! I like to stop by again during your stay, depending of the length etc. as I enjoy guests' company (people on holidays are normally at their best!).
It is in the heart of Barcelona, for me it IS the heart of Barcelona: fabulous, lively, mult-ethnic, varied, fun, with the best of everything in Barcelona, the magnificent Liceu Opera House, the beautiful church and cloister of Sant Pau, Gaudi's Palau Guell, the Rambla del Raval, the Boqueria, Barcelona's wonderful fresh produce market, best bars, theatres, clubs, .... best ladies of the night,.... best of everything!
Barcelona is fun and El Raval is a great neighborhood to stay in. Kevin's flat is very nice and quiet. It has a terrific terrace. We enjoyed our time there and would stay again. I especially liked the spiral staircase, the dinky orange juicer and the lamé curtains. Kevin has a good sense of humour and was very helpful. We hope to visit again.
Very nice apartment,located near the metro and the Ramblas, with well-equipped kitchen exactly as it was described by Kevin. Kevin is very kind host, ready to help us without hesitation. thanks for everything. Martina, Roberto, Emma and Filippo.
Very nice apartment, very cozy, clean and perfect located (close to Metro, Market, Cafes….) in very autentic neighborhood. Easy to arrive by feet many sightseeing spots (MAGBA, Rambla, Opera etc..
Great sunny terrace with 360 view over Barcelona.
Many thanks to Kevin…our perfect host. Great communication, very attentive and nice person, we had a lot of fun with him. He gave us many good and useful tips.
We will come again. Hopefully very soon.
Kevin was a fabulous host and we highly recommend renting from him. Kevin is a personable and socially conscious fellow who offered much information about the city and its places away from the usual tourist areas.He even helped out when one of us was sick, including recommending a pharmacist and a local place for soup.
The apartment was spacious and ideally located in one of the coolest areas of the city.The patio is great and we spent much time up there admiring the beautiful views. Being very close to the market and having a kitchen with all the essentials made eating at home a fun alternative to having to dine out nightly.
This is a wonderful place to stay in Barcelona with an even better host!
Kevin is the best host ever! A super nice and funny guy. He welcomed us with delicious Sangria and gave us very good advices for discovering the city. He made sure we had one of the best Barcelona-trips ever.
The apartment is fantastic: the rooftop-terrace is the best spot to hangout and have a beautiful view over Barcelona! The apartment is very clean and provides anything one needs. The kitchen is perfectly equipped, we loved the gas cooker!
Kevins apartment was the best choice: we felt like at home in Barcelona! We will come back definitely!
My wife Ingrid and I stayed at Kevin's apartment for four nights. Although we were late (almost 10 p.m.) due to a flight delay, he welcomed us on the wonderful roof terrace with cold orange juice and water which was a delightful chill down after a hot and strenuous day. This terrace is really a treasure; you look across the roofs of Barcelona, see the city's lights, but hear little of its noise despite living in the center of the city.
Kevin is a great host. Communication was always very quick, friendly, precise, and reliable. We enjoyed very much talking to him that first evening since he is open minded and affectionate.
The apartment looked exactly as we had expected it based on the pictures. This includes bedroom (bed was not too soft so that we did sleep well), bathroom (small, but with an efficient hot and cold shower that worked as it should, unlike others in charming old houses), kitchen (well-equipped with all kinds of utensils plus some basic food ingredients), and everything else. The apartment was very clean.
The few people in the house we met were always friendly. Noise was never a problem. The direct neighbourhood has various shops, bars, and restaurants. The apartment is located in the old part of the city, in easy walking distance to the Ramblas (in particular Liceu and Market Hall), and the Metro (Paral-lel) which makes it a perfect starting point for exploring the magnificent Barcelona.
Summing up, Ingrid and I can highly recommend Kevin's apartment for a stay in Barcelona.
was only in the apartment very briefly, but the place has a tremendous amount of character. wish i could have stayed longer to enjoy it more.
Me and my friends stayed at Kevin's appartment for about 5 days. I have to say Kevin is a very pleasant social, warm host with a great sense of humor as well. He welcomed us with drinks and gave us all informtion we needed to get around.
The appartment has everything you need and it really has an amazing terrace! Though the appartement is in El Raval, the neighboorhoud is really nice and actually very close to the citycenter.We really enjoyed our stay a lot and I'd recommend Kevin and his appartement to everyone!
Great apartment with shabby-chic look and amazing terrace. We really had everything we needed - fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, shower (water pressure not great but warm water never ran out and even 5 girls could manage very well), hairdryer, towels, cd player, the beds were comfy and the flat was airy. The apartment building is charming and the location is great (just a few minutes from rambla, gotic, born, everything, really, even barceloneta just 20 mins away). The area is a bit unconventional (lots of prostitutes on the streets around the apartment) but we never felt unsafe, even coming home later at night. At some point it becomes part of the charm, really :-) We spent ages on the terrace - breakfast in the morning, cava in the evening before or after going out. We had a great time and this apartment definitely made it happen. Kevin is a great host, always friendly and quick to reply. Top pick!
Kevin was a wonderful host and very accommodating. We ended up arriving a few hours later than we originally expected but he still greeted us with a smile. The apartment itself was very spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed drinking cava on the roof and watching the sun go down over the city every evening. The location was wonderful and we were able to go all around the city either on foot or on the metro which was just a block away. We definitely would recommend Kevin's flat as long as they didn't mind climbing a few flights of stairs to get there!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
