*The Apartment*
Completely refurbished in summer 2011, this antique 95m2 (1023 ft2) unique apartment is in the Barri Gòtic, the heart of Barcelona, 5min straight walk to Las Ramblas, La Catedral, Plaça Reial, Born and the beach, among other remarkable landmarks, and still peacefuly quiet. Perfectly connected to all subway and bus lines (in a walking distance to the airport bus and the central train station.

Brooklyn, our cat, lives in the apartment. He is sweet and quiet. Please tell us how you feel about cats! For long stays of more than 15 days we can move him somewhere else.

*History*
Right in front the building's main entrance there are millenarian roman ruins, what used to be Barcelona's Gate, and now part of a cultural center. On the Middle Age, the building was a surveillance tower from which guards controlled people's entrance. There's even still a tiny chapel for travelers from that time. The actual building was built in 1865 and the apartment, which is historically listed, was completely redesigned and refurbished on the Summer of 2011.

The Neighborhood

This unique place is next to Barcelona's City Hall and in a really short-walking distance (less than 10min) from Las Ramblas, Liceu, La Catedral, plaça Sant Jaume, Plaça Reial, beach and Port Vell, Plaça Catalunya and the hip neighborhood of Born. Just check the map! Thanks to its location, you will be very close to many of the best restaurants in town, nightclubs and theaters that we're willing to recommend to you. We love food and culture so you can trust us on this!

Given the fact that the apartment is 2min walk away from Barcelona's City Hall (the entrance used to be in this same street), you'll always see policemen around. This is a very safe spot in the city, perfect for families that want to be in the city-center without the noisy nights.

  • Ona was a great host; very communicative and always available for advice. The flat itself was perfect, and in such a fantastic location. A very well equipped kitchen was really useful with small children, and the cat Brooklyn was a huge hit.

  • We stayed at Ona and Eduard's apartment for 10 days at the beginning of this year and loved every minute of it. The apartment is even more gorgeous in real life than in the pictures, and is in a perfect location. We stayed there with two teenage children, and it was a great place to rest our weary legs at the end of the day (with a few wii games for the kids for their r&r), and then go out again for dinner in the evening! Ona was extremely helpful and a great communicator. Thanks very much for having us!

  • Dear Ona,

    thank you so much for all your suggestions and useful information you provided for us. The apartment was really fantastic, location could not have been better. Your brother was very welcoming. Brooklyn was a lovely addition to our Barcelona experience. I would have no hesitation in recommended your apartment to any of my friends that are lucky enough to be travelling to your beautiful city.

    Thank you.

  • Excellent flat in the heart of the Gothic quarter and on one of the better streets. Everything we could have asked for was in the flat, Ona was really helpful and made sure that we had everything covered including a detailed handbook with some great recommendations!

    August 2013
  • The flat is in a perfect area. It is clean, beatiful and very close to the main sights of this magnificent city.
    Ona is a perfect owner. Very comunicative and present.
    Thank you for everything.

  • We stayed in Ona's beautiful home for a month and a half. We were constantly pinching ourselves as we could not believe just how perfect everything was. The location in the picturesque Gotic could not be better: just footsteps away from great restaurants (try Mirrella and Pla), bars, live music (Side Door and Harlem Jazz Club), grocery stores, bakeries, and a cupcake place that claims to make the world's best cookies (and I agree!) as well as a short walk to the beach, the Ramblas, amazing vintage stores, the metro, and great museums. Ona's place is on one of the most picture-perfect and charming streets of the Gotic. Though it’s close to all the great sites, the street is very quiet with little traffic, many great local hang outs and feels a world away from the tourist traps selling bad and over-priced paella. The apartment is just fabulous. It's very large (with incredibly high ceilings), stylish and cozy. If you are a foodie, the kitchen is a major bonus as it is fully equipped and is a true delight to cook in. On top of all of this, Ona was an absolutely wonderful host. She provided us with great advice on places to eat, drink and play. She was welcoming, flexible and so considerate. She thoughtfully provides everything you need for a perfect stay (local guide books, a Nepresso coffee machine, a great DVD selection, washer and dryer, lint remover…I could go on for ever!). If you are not a cat person, Brooklyn, Ona's pet, will convert you. He is very sweet, playful, low maintenance and just plain lovable.

    In short, this place is a catch. We adored every second of our stay in Barcelona because of this because apartment and our great host. If you have the opportunity to stay here, take it!!!

  • Silvia's brother Eduardo greeted us when we arrived. We didn't get to actually meet Silvia but she was very responsive when we had questions about the area and apartment. The apartment was large, clean, and had all the appliances you needed (including a blowdryer).

    The apartment is located in a very safe area in the old town. The area was very conveniently located and was walking distance from Las Rambras. It was a very quite at night. The apartment does have a cat named Brooks who was very low maintenance and very friendly. We would definitely stay in the apartment again in the future and would recommend it to everyone!
