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.
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. Between us speak Spanish, French and English :)
For any further information please contact us - we will be willing to help in any way possible!

Guests have access to their own large private balcony. The room is super sunny and usually quiet (though from time to time there may be neighbour noise). We provide clean sheets, towels, blankets, fan for the summer, heating during the winter etc. Guests have free access to use the kitchen. The room itself is large (40 m2) with a sitting area, eating area, Wi Fi, bathroom and double bed. There is a fold out sofa double bed and another optional single bed if needed. It is clean, cosy and the location is amazing.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on our schedule we come in and out of the flat to mix with our guests. We travel a lot but we always have a good group of people who help us out with the cleaning and check in's. Over the years we have made amazing connections with guests and have continued the friendship well after they have gone. We love to welcome people in and show off the Barcelona lifestyle when we can...
We love Barcelona that is why we are still here. We renovate old buildings trying to keep their authentic charm and in doing so begun a journey to discover the old secrets of this Gothic quarter.
In this neighbourhood you can find everything from museums to restaurants, parks, beautiful shops, churches, cave-like bars all hidden in the labyrinth of little streets stretching out from the front door.
The beach is great in summer and the night life buzzes all around in the evening.
We love the food, the people, the craziness, the languages and the ease in which can travel to and from Barcelona.
Visitors should take note of the different neighbourhoods like the Borne, Raval and of course the Gothic quarter. The street music near the Cathedral, the hidden Plaza of Sant Felip Neri, Passeig del Borne, Barceloneta and the beaches. Drink lots of coffee of the plaza's and people watch during the day. Hotel Neri's roof top for a glass of wine at night. The flea market early Sunday morning on Plaza Reial, or the second hand market at Enants near Metro Glories...
Although one can walk to nearly everywhere there is public transport very close by:
Metro green line is one minute walk away -
'Liceu' on the green line
'Drassanes' on the green line
5 minutes walk away yellow line
Bus 59 and 14 at the end of the street (less than one minute walk)
Taxi's are also at the end of the street

Vooraf en tijdens het verblijf contact gehad met Anu. Heel behulpzaam en aardig. Het appartement was prima en we kregen een warm welkom en een rondleiding van degene die het huis netjes hield. Een hele sympathieke vrouw. Je mocht alles gebruiken wat in de centrale keuken beschikbaar was. Veel toeristische informatie en tips beschikbaar. Prijs/kwaliteitsverhouding prima. Mooie centrale ligging. Vlakbij de Rambla en midden in het oude centrum. De bijzondere mensen die ook in deze buurt wonen krijg je erbij en dat vonden wij heel gezellig en kleurrijk. Wij waren hier eind maart, ik vermoed dat het in de zomer behoorlijk warm kan zijn.
Anu's place is wonderfully located, in the very centre of everything. The whole process went well, and I can only recommend it. Understand it is a little funky, mostly in good ways! This room is one of 5 in the apartment. There is a nice unit in the front with all the street noise, three in the middle which share a bathroom and then this suite which has the rear, with small private balconies and enough room to spread out and feel at home. The communal kitchen is a nice way to meet some travellers, but it too is a bit funky. You need to appreciate the communal style of this place and the clever ways that Anu has made a silk purse from this old apartment. Great value for the money, its a place with a soul!
Die zentrale Lage ist hervorragend für ein pures Stadterleben geeignet. Alle Orte die wir sehen wollten, waren unkompliziert zu Fuss oder mit Bus & Bahn zu erreichen. Die Wohnung, die so einen liebevoll eingerichteten Eindruck machte hat uns jedoch und leider enttäuscht. Abgerissene Vorhangschlaufen an allen (!) Gardinen, der Schrank gefüllt mit Sperrmüll (?) und ein fast lebendiger Teppich konnten nicht überzeugen. Das Bad und die Gemeinschaftsküche haben wir gut und wie angekündigt erlebt. Die Hauswirtschaftskraft war uns gegenüber aufgeschlossen und sehr freundlich. Das sie allerdings schon am Morgen Bier trinkt hat uns befremdet und passte zu dem eher unlustig gereinigten Gesamteindruck. Barcelona ist toll, die Unterkunft jedoch aufgrund der erheblichen Sauberkeitsmängel von unserer Seite nur eingeschränkt zu empfehlen. Schade.

About the Host, Nina
Great to meet you!
We live in the beautiful Barcelona and we have discovered the joy of hosting people coming to Barcelona and sharing our experience of the city. We rent several apartments in the old historical centre of the city, and for those on a budget we also have rooms to rent. We offer a personal insight into the city!
The things we love about Barcelona? Sunshine, music, food, the ever creative, moving energy of the people and sitting having coffee in the hidden plaza´s...
Hasta Luego, see you soon :)
