The Space

Hello there!

We have finished renovations May 2013 and there is now a private bathroom linked to the room, sorry we still have to update photo´s!

We are normally very quick to respond to any questions so feel free to ask :however the calendar is up to date, you can use the book now button to calculate price.

After multitudes of Airbnb guests have passed through our places, more than 500 nearly all POSITIVE REVIEWS we would like to imagine we are beginning to be experienced (website hidden) please ASK questions and find out all of our little advantages over other listings like for example FREE TOURS of our neighbourhood the beautiful Gothic quarter, easy transport to and from the airport, authentic apartments and last but not least GREAT VALUE accommodation in the SMACK BANG CENTRE of BARCELONA!!!!!

What we offer:

A 60 min WALKING TOUR in the Gothic quarter around the apartment for inside tips on Catalan traditions, Spanish culture, great restaurants, nice cafe's, funky bars, historical sites, Gaudi buildings and great things to see and do in Barcelona.

WiFi connection.

There is also clean towels, sheets and a fan (Barcelona is hot during
the summer!)

(toilet paper, soap, towels, tea, coffee and cereal in the kitchen)

There is a kitchen available for guest use if you don't want to eat out with access to fridge etc.

We have two cleaners, Mariom and Cathy who also host for us when we travel. They are great and know Barcelona very well, they come to clean every day for a few hours in the morning.

About the room:

- There are two balconies in your room, great for sitting on and relaxing/ reading a book and having breakfast...

- There is a dining table, which is also a great space to use your laptop or write a diary
.
- A comfortable double bed

- A fan for the summer and a heater for the winter

- Plenty of wardrobe space

- The room is very spacious (30m2 just for you!)

-The biggest plus about this room is that it is QUIET, no city life or traffic noise gets in though we cannot guarantee will always be quiet after years and years its safe to say it is a quiet space.

- Second biggest plus is the location, you will save money on not having to pay for transport to get around to see the sights...!)

- There is a newly installed beautiful bathroom just for you with a large shower...

About the Price:

There are different prices according the the season but these factors do not change;
-15 euro per night for any extra people
-Children under 3 are free

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.

Our housekeeper also offers transport from 25 euro for up to 4 persons from airport directly to the apartment and vice versa if needed!

(Note there is a late check in fee)

  • Flow and Anuk were not at the apartment to meet us but a lovely woman, Cathy was. She was very informative and warm. The room was clean, quiet and brightly decorated (my favorite part). The only thing I was surprised to find is that there are 3 other rooms/mini-aparments in this unit. It feels a little more like a small hostel than someone's personal house. It just wasn't what I excepted, but I had a lovely stay nevertheless.

  • We stayed here for three nights and were very happy with the place and our experience. The bed was very comfortable, the sunny terrace a huge plus, the coffee and shared kitchen access convenient, and the decoration bohemian and colorful. There are three vegetarian/vegan places within 5 minutes, and lots of bars.
    The bathroom right next to the bed may not be what everyone desires, it is not soundproof, and the stairs are not for people with physical limitations, but we were okay with this. Very nice to meet Anushka, she is knowledgeable and friendly. ¡Muchas gracias!

  • Great hosts, great room, great location. Nothing to complain about.

    March 2014
  • Large room with private balcony overlooking quiet courtyard is exactly what it is. Great central location. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Great communication from the start of booking the holiday. Would highly recommend. Clean and tidy. Good value for money.

    March 2014
  • I can highly recommend this place!
    Admittedly we had some communication problems after our arrival, but Flo managed to get to the flat quickly! However, the room was really nice, the bed was super comfortable and the bathroom clean! Furthermore Flo gave us a lot of advice what we should do in Barcelona!

    Guess we'll meet again next time we visit Barca :)

  • Had a wonderful stay in Flo & Anuks place. Big room, perfectly located. The neighbours can be a bit loud late at night and the houses are old and quite noisy, so if you're a light sleeper, do bring earplugs. But with those in my ears, I slept like a baby. I understood that they are going to renovate for a few weeks now, can't wait to see the new and improved place. Thanks a lot again, and hope to see you again sometimes! Ivar & Marieke

  • A great place in the heart of Barcelona, the appartment is quiet (overlooks the courtyard) and beautiful ! Perfect hosts, full of good advices and nice addresses, thank you Flow for your welcome and your tips!

    November 2013
  • Excellent location, great room with private balcony and bathroom, Flow was helpful, friendly, and available if I needed anything. I would recommend this place.

    November 2013
  • I fell in love with Flow and Anuk's guesthouse and neighborhood! Just steps from so many great things to explore. For a quick, affordable bite to eat, I would especially recommend the vegan deli down the street (towards George Orwell plaza).

    The room was bright and very spacious - a great value. While I didn't meet Flow and Anuk since they were out of town, I appreciated their detailed guide/manual left in my room. Catty, Carlos and their daughter served as wonderful hosts. I hope I can visit the great city of Barcelona again soon and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this space again. Thanks!
