Flat area of 128m2 (100+28). With a private huge terrace (169m2) most of all oriented at south so there is full of sun all day!!. 100Mb real internet connection via wifi - on the terrace too :) - Floor heating system in whole house, a loft with no doors.
The building was grow on 1674, and the attic was refurbished on 1834, so no elevator is in there.
The flat is located just in the best area of Barcelona, gothic is the historical area and the center of the city too, right 2 minutes walking from Ramblas, and 5 minutes walking to the sea and the beach. This area concentrate most of bars, shops, discos, and historical bilds of the city. House is an oasis, no noise, and no cars on that thin streets...
Busses and subway reaching in just 3 to 10 min walking depending the color line you want to take, all color subway lines are available in this area.
On weekend I use to cook paella on the barbacue with my friends, Boqueria market is just 5 - 7 minutes walking, so it's the best place to buy fresh meat and fish, and of course some of the bests spanish wines. We won some challenges cooking paellas... yess!
The flat is capable of wireless music with airtunes technology, so if you have an iPhone with Spotify or iTunes, an Android cell with Spotify, or a laptop with iTunes you can stream up your music to the speakers located on the upstairs room thru wifi connection, those speakers feed all flat.
As you can see on pictures there's no full kitchen for cooking. A freezer is enough for wines, cheese, snacks and cokes. I still refurbishing my house and there's no kitchen and some electrical sockets lights doesn't work yet.
I have a Nespresso machine, and every morning (email hidden) bring me the breakfast, I can ask for yours too of course.
The place is perfect to relax, to enjoying the terrace while dinking some good spanish wine, very quiet peaceful and calm in the middle of the city.
The smoking area is on the top floor and terrace.
La mía, es una evaluación indirecta, porque alquilé la habitación del loft, para amigos que estaban viajando por BCN.
El matrimonio se fue muy contento por la atención de Joan. Durante la recepción (momento que sí compartí), fue muy servicial y brindó buena información a sus huéspedes.
Las instalaciones contratadas se corresponden con las imágenes que publica (sólo la zona chill out no concordaba, pero se debía a que un fuerte viento había volado el toldo, ¡más que comprensible!).
Sabíamos que el edificio no contaba con ascensor, pero nos sorprendió la baja altura de la escalera. Somos altos y cargando la maleta al hombro, mi amigo la rozó con el techo durante toda la subida.
La ubicación fue sumamente cómoda, porque los viajeros estaban dispuestos a "patear" y descubrir los alrededores.
Si se presenta otra oportunidad de tener que acomodar gente en tu ciudad, Joan, ¡cuento con vos!
This place is just amazing. Perfect location, huge terrace, lot of space.
Place is clean and really unique.
Joan is a really nice host and will kindly advise you for best addresses in Barcelona and he will make you feel at home.
The only thing you could regret about this apartment is to not have enough time to spend just enjoying it!
Next time we'll go in Barcelona, we won't even look for another place to stay.
Joan was an exellent host. He welcomed us and told us a couple of places to go out and eat. We had the apartment to our self most of the time. We highly recomed this place and this host.
We had a very nice stay. The location was central. The appartment nice and in accordance with the given description. Our host came by in the evenings, which made it possible to ask for advice on practical questions. He was indeed very helpful and gave us many good tips regarding e.g. good restaurants.
The loft is located perfectly close to Las Ramblas and the beach. We enjoyed the fantastic atmosphere at the terrace with view above Barcelona so much. We highly appreciated Joan`s recommendations for incredibly great tapas. Additionally his charming and relaxed nature makes him a perfect host.
We had a great time staying at Joan's place and would recommend the apartment and area to anyone visiting Barcelona. Very comfortable and specious with very helpful and friendly host:)
Joan's place is just the kind of eclectic architectural digest fabulous that we were looking for. It's state of ongoing restoration made us feel at home. Juan gave us the best hit list ever for restaurants and tapas bars in the neighborhood. Juan is charming, charming, charming!!!!!

I will be happy to offer you my apartment here in Barcelona and make sure you have a great stay in this beautiful city. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need further information about my flat and about the city.
As I said on flat's description I don't have kitchen so I use to eat everyday in restaurants in Barcelona, spanish food is well known everywhere but not all restaurants are good enough (for me), and many serves food for fools. Ask me if you want to eat something special, and something good and special doesn't means expensive.
