Quiet Apartment In The City Center

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer de Sant Gil, Barcelona, Catalonia 08001, Spain

The Space

The apartment is located in the "old town" in the center of Barcelona. It's within walking distance to all of the attraction, yet it's located on a quiet secondary street assures that you'll be able to actually sleep at night- which is not common in this city.
The apartment is also conveniently located regarding airport / train station communication. The main train station, Sants Estació, is a few metro stations away, and Placa Catalunya where the airport shuttles are, is within walking distance, (2 metro stations)
The nearest metro station (San Antoni) is a few steps away from the apartment.

In the price are included:

-Sheets and towels
-All kitchen amenities and laundry.
-Fans or heaters
-Toiletries, washing powder
-Cleaning fees
-A city map
-Discounts here and there (apx.10% on most of the touristic attractions)

A grocery store is right next door, and a supermarket one minute away.

*The time of check-in and check-out are apx. 12 noon as a general rule. It's often flexible, as it depends only on other guests, so feel free to check it with us.

*We have stated 6 as the MAXIMUM number of guests, not the recommended number of guests. Originally the apartment was used just by the two of us, so although it has 6 sleeping surfaces, with high number of people it's not really suitable for hanging out. However, If all you need is for is sleeping, shower, etc., we'll be happy to host you. We've had many groups of 6 and they were very satisfied (feel free to check the reviews), but please keep this comment in mind when writing the review. Thanks!

  • The place is exactly what we needed. It's small, but close to a metro and the city center. Barcelona has so much to do there's no need to stay around the house anyway!
    The place was easy to find, clean, inviting, and a map of the city was provided. They made sure we got in safe and didn't need anything further.
    Great place to venture out and around Barcelona from.

  • We have just returned from a wonderful week in Barcelona and Seb's flat. Thank you so much to Angelina - their friend for helping us when we got the wrong train!

    1) The location Positives - perfect walking distance to main attractions, very close to Metro, right next to local shops, very very quiet at night. Negatives - the area is a little seedy but we felt safe at all times.
    2) The flat - a perfect crash pad. Very well maintained, clean, tidy, everything we needed was there. incredibly (website hidden) grateful for the WIFI.
    The shower - the narrowest shower I have ever seen. The kids were fine but I'd advise adults to try not to drop the soap! You'll struggle if you are tall or much over a US size 14 (women) . But...it works and does the job. We knew it was going to be small so were not surprised.
    The door buzzer - we only realised that it was not working after our teenage daughter got stuck outside. Luckily the shop at the bottom of the stairs had a key to let her in.
    The stairs - there are 89 of them and they are quite steep and very narrow. We were fine but I think, had we any joint problems then this would be an issue.

    A few food suggestions nearby: Wok Dao is not far away...massive Chinese Buffet. 16 Euros for the most amazing array of fresh seafood. It was full of Chinese guests and the food was tasty...a bit expensive but if you are looking for something different it is worth it. We also had outstanding burgers at Devil's Kitchen, wonderful paella at Pollo Rico and great tapas at O'Toxo Tres Hermanos. All of these were in a 10 minute walk radius. There's a bakers round the corner from the flat that does great pastries.

    We had a great time in Barcelona and the flat was perfect for our needs. Cheap, cheerful and a great location. We would definitely book again if we were returning to Barcelona. Thanks!!

  • Our group enjoyed our stay in Sebastian's apartment, it is exactly as seen as the photographs. It is centrally located near the La Rambla markets and is very near a metro, so you can easily walk / metro to many of the popular tourist destinations. Sebastian was not present for our stay, but we had support from Pauline and their friend Angelina (who works at the Center Rambles Youth Hostel) helped us to leave our luggage at the hostel for us to go to Barceloneta beach on check out day.

    Pros:
    Centrally located
    Inexpensive accommodation, suitable for a simple place to sleep for the night
    Amenities all provided for the price
    Hosts are very friendly!

    Cons:
    Bathroom / living space is tiny. This place might not be suitable for tall or larger people as space is quite cramped
    No heating at night. It got quite cold during the nights

    I would recommend the place if you are looking for simple and inexpensive accommodation to sleep and will be out for the majority of the day

  • The appartement was very nice and only few mins walk from the center. It's true that the shower was a lilttle too small but that didn't really matter. The appart was cool, comfy bed, cute fishes :p
    If I go back, I'll definately go back to Seb and Pau's place.
    Had an awesome time.
    BTW! it's 4th floor but actually it's 6th hahaha so be prepared to climb the stairs :)

  • Great location, 5-10 minutes from Las Ramblas. Quiet and clean. One double room and one bunk bed room. Small but functional, simple decor and furnishings, but perfect for a short, cheap stay in Barcelona. Lots of stairs if you have big bags or poor mobility.

  • El piso es pequeño pero está muy bien para 4 personas. Buena relación costo-. ubicación. No vimos a Sebastian y paulina pero por mensajes fueron atentos, las indicaciones del piso son muy claras y flexibles. Hay mapas y cupones de descuentos lo cual es útil y además nos consiguieron un parking mas barato cerca de ahí. El único inconveniente es la falta de ascensor por las maletas.

  • Whilst this is certainly not living in luxury, this flat has EVERYTHING that you could possibly need for a no-frills, low cost and well positioned stay in Barcelona. These elements are - free wifi, a central yet impossibly quiet location and beds - what more do you need in a city like Barcelona? Also there is a small shop by the front door for all your late night munchy needs. Great communication from Paulina and Sebastian, would definitely stay again.
