The surroundings of the apartment:
The apartment is situated in the heart of the most antic neighborhood of Barcelona, a few steps away of the famous Ramblas and also from the sea.
This area, of a strong gothic image, differs from the rest of Barcelona for its ancient streets full of history, the squares with their bars and terraces, the movement.
Perfect for the day tourism (most of the interesting cultural places are reached in less than 5 minutes walking) and by night, with its many places where to eat or stop for a drink and listen some music.
The "green" metro line as well as the "yellow" are a few minutes from the apartment to cover any angle of the city.
It is a "principal" (the noble spanish floor) of more than 150 years, totally reformed recovering the pieces and the original parts of the house (floors, decorated exposed roofs, windows, doors and gratings)
A craft work lasted almost 7 months.
The kitchen is complete, because being able to enjoy a good meal its the perfect complement for your holidays.
The bathroom its composed of the toilette and a comfortable design shower. In the equipment of the apartment we provide towels and hairdryer.
The bedrooms are spacious, furnished and decorated with taste, double beds, antic furniture and bedside table restored.
Both of them have a spacious balcony perfect for your relax, where you can drink a nice bottle of wine after a long day around the city.
The bedclothes and sheets are included in the equipment of the apartment.

A wonderful and beautifully decorated place in great location. Close to the beach as well as to nice restaurants and bars on the other side - we can absolutely recommend this place. Nice welcome by the host, quick response and everything has been taken care of very well. Thanks for hosting us!
Het appartement is erg netjes en van alles voorzien. Er is veel aandacht besteed aan de inrichting en details.
Het licht erg centraal, dicht bij het centrum en de zee.
Wel een redelijk drukke straat maargoed wij waren en rond nieuwjaar.
Zeker een aanrader
Paola gave us great information before we left -- about the neighborhood, how to get to the apartment, lots of tips on where to go. She's great at communicating just what you need to know. And once there, Massimiliano was a caring and responsive host. If we had a question, he answered it. If a problem, he fixed it. The apartment is charming, with beautiful, high, painted ceilings, tall windows and doors, modern bathroom with a great shower, interesting lighting -- and lots of electrical outlets. It has a kind of "downtown" aesthetic, in a very good way. And the location is perfect. The Barri Gotic's narrow streets and pedestrian walkways were full of surprises: at some point in the day (we never knew when), a metal door would roll up and there would be a shop of puppets, or hammocks, or an inviting little bar and tapas place. Two minutes walk from the apartment, there's a cerveceria, with beers from around the world. The apartment is also very near the old port, and the old fishermen's neighborhood of Barceloneta. The subway is nearby and easy to navigate. Well, I could go on and on; we were there for almost two weeks. Just be aware that the street is lively, and you can hear practically everything that goes on. And there are churches, with bells, nearby, so you know exactly what time it is, starting at 7 a.m. But that's life within the atmospheric walls of the Barri Gotic.
The location couldn't have been better! 2 minutes - and you are overlooking the sea, 10-15 minutes walk to main attractions around the Gothic district. I stayed in Paola's apartment for 5 days with my aunt. My aunt didn't find the stairs too much of a problem in spite of her bad knees. The apartment itself was gorgeous, and with plenty of character. For those who love their comforts - the shower was great and the beds really comfortable (though one of them would not be suitable for anyone with a fear of heights!)
I guess the only thing I'd mention would be the street noise at night, as there are several Irish pubs on the street (you know how these guys are ;) ), but then again, both of us slept well, exhausted after days of sightseeing and shopping - so it's just something to be mindful of only if you are a sensitive sleeper.
Big thanks to Paola for great recommendations around Barcelona and Bea and Massimiliano for being Paola's friendly and very welcoming representatives.
Def. a gorgeous, clean and lovely decorated apartment on the perfect spot. beach was just around the corner together with the lovely breakfast spot Milk (a real treat). We rented a bike so we could also see the less touristic (beach)parts of barcelona. our host Massi was so kind to even help us print the boarding passes! thank you once again. lovely trip!
Very cool and clean apartment I already recommended to my friends. Even a late checkout didn't cause any problems. The location is great as well, you can walk almost everywhere, but don't forget to bring your ear-plugs!
Everything was just perfect.
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The location of the flat was perfect! Close to restaurants and nightlife, on the edge of the Barri Gòtic and near the trendy Born neighborhood. It was a quick walk to the Ramblas, La Boqueria, several public transport lines, and the beaches in Barceloneta (where we enjoyed an al fresco lunch one day). The street itself was a bit noisy (didn't bother us as we slept like rocks) but also lively, which made wine-fueled people-watching from the balconies really fun. :-)
The flat itself was unique and interesting -- absolutely loved the sleeping loft! Also slept in the separate bedroom; both beds were very comfortable, clean, and cozy. Flat had tons of character and was clean and well taken care of. There's a small kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, and two-burner range. The flat has a retro-modern feel -- it still has original floor tile (cool!) but also has some neat modern upgrades, including some industrial-style metalwork.
Bathroom was one of the coolest I've ever seen, with an operational french-door-style window that actually opened (!) and an overhead rain shower as well as a handheld one with excellent water pressure. It had a sliding barn door as the door, which was fine for me and my husband but might be a little intimate for friends sharing. Sink was a bit small and faucet overshot it a bit (leading to splashed pants-fronts on several occasions) but otherwise an awesome bathroom.
Paola was a spectacular host and was friendly and accommodating from start to finish. She sent a lot of information before our trip, including restaurant/bar/club recommendations, info on taxis and public transport, general tips, etc. -- very helpful! She was also quick to respond during our stay, was full of great information and suggestions, and even helped us sort out payment for a taxi that wouldn't take credit cards. She went above and beyond what one would normally expect for a host and is truly a great person. During checkout on our last day, we got to meet the owner Massi -- super nice guy, and also responsible for all of the cool features in the flat (he did them himself!).
We were very impressed with the flat, Paola, and Massi, and we fell in love with Barcelona (who doesn't??) and the Spanish people. We will definitely be back.
We had amazing time at Paola's apartment! The flat is very stylish and spacious. It is situated on a busy but conveniently located street: very close to the beach and to many others worth seeing places. Beatriz, Paola's colleague, was of great help and support. We highly recommend this apartment and really greatful to the ladies!
