Charming apartment located in the heart of the historical center, next the harbour in the old city. Warm and comfortable this apartment overlooks a quiet pedestrian street.
The dining room has a balcony overlooking the street and a fully equipped kitchen, making it an ideal space for the coexistence of a family or a group of friends. The master bedroom is spacious and overlooks the street, has a double bed, a wardrobe and a dresser. The other room overlooks a small courtyard lighting, ventilation, and contains two single beds and a few small lockers for each guest. The bathroom consists of a small bathtub, sink and toilet.
The Gótico quarter (Barrio Gótico), is one of the best preserved medieval sets of Europe, placed in the historic centre of the city, between the Ramblas and Vía Laietana street. The beginning of Barcelona is among these ancient streets that still keep the aroma of older times. In fact, there are still remains of what once was the city wall and the Roman town (in the Museum of History of Barcelona). The cathedral, its cloister, the Plaza del Rey, the Plaza de Sant Iu, and the Plaza de Sant Just squares are places that breathe history. The quarter is formed by tiny stoned pedestrian alleys and small terraces, traditional stores, and night spots (around the Plaza Real square). Also part of the neighbourhood is the famous and crowded Rambla, a walk that is still the most popular one in the city.
It has WIFI, so you will be able to contact family and friends explaining to the experiences you are having in this wonderful city .
In the heart of the Gothic , the heart of the city. Close to all major attractions of the historic center and the Cathedral , Palau de la Música, the Gotic area , Church of Santa Maria del Mar, the Picasso Museum , Mercat de la Boqueria, etc. Near Port Vell and Maremagnum center Shopping. Lively area with many restaurants , theaters , cinemas , bars and pubs.
It is the best place to walk to the most emblematic places of the city.
I advise you to go walking to most places to enjoy the atmosphere of the streets and getting lost in the streets, people watching and knowing your corner .
Another interesting thing is to rent a bike, lets see more parts of the city in a calm and relaxed way.
Walking distance to the beach and the area of Barceloneta, where you can find the best fish restaurants, and try the best rice " arrossejats " and Catalan dishes.
An ideal opportunity to walk the streets and approach all these attractions , walking and being surprised at every turn by the various highlights of this area of the city.
It is close to the best bars and restaurants of the city center , however , is located in a small quiet street .
I'm from Barcelona lifetime, I know every nook and charming places of the city, so don't hesitate and ask me :-))
I'm your diposición for any question or problem, I always find me in my phone, also live very close in 5 minutes so I'm there :-))
The Gothic Quarter is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe, located in the historic center of the city, between the Ramblas and Via Laietana. The origin of Barcelona is in these old streets that still retain the air of another time. In fact parts of what was the city wall and the Roman town (at the Museum of History of the city) are still preserved. The cathedral, its cloister, the Plaça del Rei, Plaça de Sant Iu, Plaça de Sant Just are spaces that breathe history. The neighborhood consists of small cobblestone pedestrian alleys and small terraces, traditional shops, nightclubs (around the Plaça Real). Also part of the neighborhood is the famous and crowded Rambla, a walk that is still the most popular in the city.
Only 5 minutes from the Metro stations Metro Drassanes (line 3) and 15 minutes from Plaça Catalunya.
In Plaza Catalunya is the Aerobus, the bus to the airport!
El apartamento es cómodo y está muy bien ubicado, se pueden hacer recorridos a pie a muchos lugares de interés. Manel ha sido muy amable y atento a nuestras necesidades.
El único inconveniente es que el agua caliente no es mucha y siendo cuatro personas y en invierno, tuvimos que hacer duchas cortas y espaciadas.
Seguramente Manel lo solucionará próximamente.
Great location, great host, very nice apartment! lovely 7 days visit!!!
for future guests attention (very minor issues): ~90 stairs to climb, hot water for shower not last too long.
Overall our stay at Manel's apartment was great. The apartment is small but comfortable and well located in a quiet street of the lower section of Gotico, walking distance to the major tourism spots of the center, the port and the beach. The apartment is cozy and has a small kitchen and living room in addition to the two bedrooms.
Manel was a responsive and available host-- he was there to greet us and responded immediately when we had an issue with the internet connection. There is some construction across the street that got a bit noisy during the day but there's nothing he can do about that and it's a temporary thing regardless.
The only major downside is the shower-- it doesn't really even have enough hot water for one full shower, let alone more. In the summer this would probably be less of an issue (a lukewarm shower is a pleasure in a hot Barcelona) but in the winter it was a bit of a challenge for us and we were only two people...something to consider, depending on how much it matters to you and how many people are staying.
Tell others in the Airbnb community about your stay.
Manel is a great host: reliable and friendly, he has an answer for everything. :)
The apartment is in a perfect location and had everything we needed for our 8 days stay. It even has a supermarket next door. The only downside is that because of the water heater, it takes a long time to take a shower if you are 4 people (you have to wait for 15-20 min for the heater to do his job between showers).
All in all we had a great time in Barcelona and I already recommended this apartment to my friends!:)
Manel was very nice. The apartment was gorgeous and in a great part of town. Close to the beach, and all the other sites in the city. Thx Manel. Best regards Kyle and Clara
The location of the apartment is really perfect - the gothic center and the next metro station, both are just around the corner. The interior of the apartment is simple and functional but nothing was missing. Manel is a pretty reliable and helpful person who was always available for us.
Manel nos recibió muy cordialmente y nos brindó varios datos importantes para conocer Barcelona. El departamento es cómodo y estaba limpio cuando llegamos, con sábanas y toallas preparadas para nosotros. Manel es muy cuidadoso con esto. La ubicación del departamento es muy buena, a pasos de la rambla y del subte que te lleva a todos lados y facilita enormemente el traslado por la ciudad. Lo recomiendo.
We had a great stay at Manel's place. The appartment is in a very nice location in the city of Barcelona, and is quite spacious and very well maintained. Manel is a very friendly owner who is always willing to answer your questions. The only tiny remark is the shower which runs out of hot water quite fast. Besided that, we had a really nice time at this lovely appartment. Definately would recommend to friends!
Apartment was great. Amazing location near the bottom end of the Ramblas and also near to all of the bustling alley nightlife but also removed enough to escape all of the nocturnal noise which was a definite plus. The apartment was secure, very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable 5 day stay. Manel was extremely helpful and responsive. The only downside was that the WiFi connection was not very reliable/slow but it did work for the most part.
Next time I visit Barcelona I will try to stay in this apartment again.
