The Space

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.

The apartment:

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.

Massimiliano & Beatriz:

they are my closest friends and help me to lead this lovely apartment, you can count on me and them for any inquiry about your stay in Barcelona.

  • I had a great time staying at the apartment in Gothic. It was perfectly clean, amazing decor, great location & a very decent size space. The unique renovation was really cool also!
    Massi & Paola were amazing hosts with excellent communication & they both went out of their way to do little extra things for me!
    I would gladly recommend this apartment for a fabulous place to stay in Barcelona!

  • We had overall a wonderful stay at Paola's apartment! It's right in the heart of the city so it might get very loud during night (you maybe should bring some earplugs if you're a sensitive person regarding noise) but it's very easy to get around from there. The apartment itself is furbished with a lot of taste and it was very clean.
    Thank you Paola and Massimiliano! You've been very helpful and welcoming during our stay :-)

  • We had a fantastic stay in Barcelona. The apartment was in an amazing location, we explored the city easily on foot and there were delicious restaurants and great shopping just moments from the apartments door. Paola was great at communication and supplied us with a super helpful document outlining some of the cities best sights and restaurants. The apartment was very modern and clean, it was a little noisy at night as you are in the heart of Barri Gotic but wasn't a big issue at all as you are usually out enjoying the city until late aswell. We highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Barcelona, we hope to be back soon!

Also the location of the apartment is (email hidden)ar the port, the rambla and just a few minutes to the beach. A lot of restaurants and bars around, a supermarket and a bakery next to the the apartment. Also the underground ist very near.....just perfect....we´ll come back!!!!!

  • L'appartement est exactement comme sur les photos, très bien situé, à 5 min à pied de la plage et de la Rambla, propre et accueillant! La literie est super confortable et la décoration très réussie. Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cet appartement, je le recommande sans hésitation! Seul petit bémol: pour ceux qui ont le sommeil léger, la rue est un peu bruyante la nuit, surtout le we! Massi est un hôte parfait, il s'est montré ponctuel, disponible et flexible (avec les heures de départ) et nous a donné un tas de bons conseils pour manger, visiter, sortir etc. A refaire!!

  • Great host. Great apartment for our 5 days in Barcelona. Perfect location in heart of the Gothic Quarter while close to seafront. Noisey at night, but that's all part of Barcelona culture. Bring earplugs if you're not up all night partying. Lots of great places to discover nearby.

  • Thanks a lot, we had a good time. Sometimes noisy, but it was ok. Massi is a nice host. The flat is clean and stylish. Inga

  • We had a wonderful time staying in this flat! Paola and Massi were fantastic hosts, who provided great recommendations (for eating, drinking and museums), were helpful with our questions, and made us feel at home. The location couldn't have been better, and the space was comfortable and thoughtfully designed with local pieces from Barcelona. I highly recommend staying here, and plan on doing so on our next trip.

About
I'm an italian artist living in Barcelona for almost 10 years. . I'm in love with the city and the people who make it so special. I love getting lost in the narrow streets of its old districts and being still able to find shops and bars with an ancient feel. I usually offer my own place on AirBnB when I'm away from Barcelona due to my job and, moreover, I manage some beautiful apartments situated in the Gothic district. My pleasure is to help people to discover the best side of this city e to make their stay an unforgettable experience. Me and my friends would be glad to welcome and help you during your stay in Barcelona.
