This charming flat of 38 m2 is located on a private street in the Gothic district of Barcelona (old city) just between the Ramblas and the Cathedral. It's layout is one open space divided in: cooking area, with a fully equipped kitchen, a living room area with a dinning table & chairs and a sofa bed. The bedroom area is separated with a curtain.
Special care has been taken when we renovated this apartment.
It has two large glass pane doors, one for each balcony, overlooking the quite private street. The floor has been conserved and the original terracotta tiles dating back to 1820, give it a rare and special look. We have also conserved an original 60's wallpaper, one you can hardly find nowadays.
Large mirrors with antique frames and original art complete the decoration of this lovely apartment.
The surrounding area:
The area around the apartment, mostly pedestrian, is in the heart of the Gothic district where the most famous stores of Barcelona are located, as well as many other shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. The “Plaça Catalunya” and the famous “Ramblas” street are just at few meters from the apartment with the “Boqueria” market and the “Liceu” Theater, just a few minutes away. The Gothic cathedral of Barcelona is also very close.
There is a 30eur cleaning fee to be paid in cash upon arrival to the apartment.
This includes as well fresh bed linen and towels.

- great location, right in the heart of the city, very safe private street
- apt. is spacious, nicely decorated and well-equipped (a few missing cooking items were provided after some time)
- overally clean and tidy (some mold in washing machine, stained microwave, rusty toaster)
- management was responsive and helpful
- bed and couch turned out having fleas. A handyman was sent to clean, spray poison and replace bed and bed tables. The issue persisted, so professional disinfestation was scheduled upon my checking-out
- quiet private street but frequent construction work noise right across (drilling, hammering, etc.)
- wi-fi is good but occasionally goes down and you have to reset the power switch
Overally a nice stay, although I would have expected a higher discount than 10% off of my total, considering bugs issue and construction work noise
Great apartment in absolutely fantastic central location. Very friendly and informative hosts, we felt at home right away. Would stay again if ever we are back in Barcelona! Thanks very much.
We had a lovely time staying at this flat for 9 days, the size was good, kitchen had all the basics but the highlight was the location, it's so fantastically central which means you can go out as late as you want (we were there over new years) and then not have to worry about getting back, and as it's set back a little from the busy shopping street it's quiet at night.
We loved the retro decor and especially the old boardgames on the walls, Anna and Josephine who showed us in gave us some great tips on places to eat, and things to see.
Other reviews have mentioned roadworks going on in the main street, it looks like these all finished by the time we got there so was nice and quiet.
Would highly recommend!

we liked the apartment very much, it's very central and in walking distance of the best parts of barcelona. it's not ideal if you're looking for a calm place though, there is also still a lot of building work going on in and around the house
No complaints at all about the key handover. The lady, whose name I have forgotten, was very helpful and very friendly when giving us an overview of the apartment and surrounding area.
You won't believe how central this apartment is. Set back into a private courtyard off what seems to me to be a main shopping area, it was peaceful and quiet.
You can be on la ramblas in about 60 seconds from here. It really is a good base to see central Barcelona.
We we're completely charmed by the whole experience and this apartment played no small part in that. Highly recommended.
Die Ferienwohnung liegt wirklich sehr zentral im Barrie Gothìc. Man muss den Trubel dort mögen. Das Foto, bzw. die Helligkeit der Fenster täuscht. Die Privatgasse ist schmal. D.h. das nächste Haus ist 5 Meter entfernt. Dadurch ist die Wohnung im 2. Stock dunkel, sodass man am Tag Licht anmachen muss.
Während unseres Aufenthalts stand ein Bauaufzug direkt neben dem Fenster, da im Haus die oberen Etagen umgebaut werden.
We felt very welcome in this apartment. The photos make it seem a bit larger than it is, but it was the perfect size for 2 people. If we visited Barcelona, we would stay in this apartment again. The location could not have been more perfect! 2 minutes from Las Ramblas, and very easy to walk from there to other attractions in the centre. Great stay overall!
