A 60 min WALKING TOUR in the Gothic quarter around the apartment for inside tips on Catalan traditions, Spanish culture, great restaurants, nice café's, funky bars, historical sites, Gaudi buildings and great things to see and do in Barcelona.
About the room:
Though we do not live in this apartment we are come twice a day and try our best to organize free tours every day from the apartment.
This authentic apartment is full of Catalan memories with old Spanish tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, wooden beams all along the apartment and typical Spanish shutters. It is a huge apartment (185m squared) kitchen, living room, internet, two large rooms ( one of which has a private bathroom) and two small rooms, the shower and toilet are shared!
About the location:
The apartment is located in the centre of Barcelona in the 1st District “ La Ciutat Vella”, it is in the heart of the Gothic quarter next to "Plaza Reial" with lanterns by Gaudi and a step away from The Famous pedestrian boulevard " The Ramblas" (The main street in Barcelona) with Gaudi's building "Palau Guell" 1 Min away. We are situated close to most of the well-known tourist attractions.
The apartment is on a famous street with its old restaurants and Catalan Tapas bars. There is also ‘’Plaza St. George Orwell’ (locally known as “Plaza Tripi"), all around the corner. The nearby streets contain many of the city's most emblematic buildings.
The narrow, winding streets create quite a labyrinth meaning it can take a while to get one's bearings! I recommend that you should always look up and around in case of missing some of the nicest sites. The Gothic quarter has plenty of peaceful squares (plazas) where you can relax and enjoy your surroundings. If we are around during your stay I will gladly take you on a tour of the neighborhood so you can find your feet here!
Transport is easily accessible in this part of town (metro, taxi, bus). However this quarter is relatively small and most of the city’s attractions are a walk away distance.
(Note there is a late check in fee)
Flow has lived here for many years, his Grandmother being Catalan. Flow and I met here in Barcelona years ago when we studied theatre and happily decided to continue on our Barcelona adventure. Florian speak Spanish, French and English :)
For any further information please contact us - we will be willing to help in any way possible!
Flow and Anuk:)
It´s really worth climbing up the three stairs to this charming appartment.We stayed for five nights in the nice room next to the kitchen, comfortable beds, enough space for clothes and luggage and a table where we could eat our breakfast in the morning and some tapas in the evening. And last but not least - very nice Flo And Anouk! We will come back. Hasta luego! /Ingrid and
This place is in the middle of every thing.. Flow and Anuk were very kind. There are a lot of stairs but it's worth it. Good value for the money.. Michael
great location : right next to la ramblas, very close to the port bell.
flo&anu were on vacation so cathy and her husband took care of my check-in and the room, and she was such a nice person. she gave me all the information she can offer.
the room was cozy (i was by myself and i was surprised there were three beds in my room haha) and the building had great access for sightseeing of bcn! also hot water was available all the time in the shared bathroom.
* well if you want a private bathroom, you can check if the master room is available.
anyway it was a great choice for me to stay here.
thanks cathy and anu!
Flow and Anuk where great and really helped me with everything. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again :)
I had a great time at Flow and Anuk's, the house is easy to find and is right on the Ramblas, the place itself is gorgeous and is filled with art. Flow and Anuk were great especially since i ended up running late and went to measures to make sure i arrived safely. I would definately recommend this place to anyone travelling to barcelona. Thank you heaps!!!
Tough the room is small the accomedation is verry well. .Als well the service. I'll come back with my grandchildren when they are a bit older .Then I.ll take the biggest room in the appartement so they will say in a fairytale.
Thanks for your hospitality.
Very happy with the location and accommodation. The room is small but adequate. As I arrived earlier I phoned Anu and Flo got to the flat in few minutes. Flo was very kind and helpful. He gave me great suggestions for eating and sight seeing. Thank you guys.
Хорошая комната, восхитительные хозяева, помогают решить проблемы гостя. Один недостаток, высокий этаж, крутая лестница. Спасибо Flow & Anuk!
First of all, the room was unsanitary. The sheets and bed smelled of sweat and there were cockroaches. Second of all it is in unsatisfactory condition. One of the windows in the door is missing and the walls of the room were dirty. Third, and most importantly, the flat is unsafe. I was assaulted by a man who was brought back to the flat by another renter. Flow didn't care enough to even answer the phone when I called. Lastly, the first night I was there the power to the whole building went out while the city worked on a gas leak. The only positive was the tour, which was led by Flow, and was actually informative. Please don't rent this room. Your only going to encourage this type of substandard treatment of. Isotopes to Spain by Flow and Anuk.
Nathaniel was the first ever guest we had to evict because every night he called us around 3 am in a panic. The first few times we responded we believed the stories but after the 3rd time and having talked to 3 other witnesses we realised he was possibly not in his sound mind. I talked extensively with airbnb and eventually we asked him to leave hence the very negative review. I am hoping airbnb will remove him from being a user of this website. This was our first experience of this nature after hosting close to hundreds of guests over the years so I do not think it is something to be alarmed by.
I had Room 1 in Flow and Anuk's apartment.
First of all, the apartment is precious. Very authentic and old (Cathy the housekeeper's daughter told me some history). If you want to experience authentic Spanish living this is it. However you should be aware that it is on a floor without an elevator so be prepared to climb stairs with your luggage.
I would suggest Room 1 only if you literally just need a place to sleep. It's small enough that to have floor space I had to put my suitcase on the bed and it gets kind of warm in there. Not even size of a walk in closet. But all the rooms are very cute & I'd definitely come back and stay in one of the larger rooms. However-- for the price and location it's pretty hard to beat.
Also Flow and Anuk are great. Didn't meet them but they constantly checked on me by message. They also have great books to read and provide cereal for guests. Very well run place and they communicate well.
It's in a great location off las Ramblas.
