About this listing
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 .

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!

Manel was a great host and the apartment was in a great spot.
So close to everything.
The location of this apartment cannot be beat! We walked everywhere and had a wonderful time exploring the neighborhood. It's so close to La Rambla and even closer to the Gothic Quarter. We didn't have any problem with street noise. The apartment itself has everything we needed and the air conditioning kept us cool in very hot heat. Manel was great and accommodating with our travel times and gave us advice for getting around. If you get the chance to rent this apartment, do it!
Great location in the hip Gothic quarter with parking, restaurants, bars and shops very close. Manel was a very easy host to communicate with especially as we booked last minute. The flat was clean and met all our needs. Great value for money!
As mentioned in other reviews there is a noisy construction site across the road but as they follow normal working hours it wasn't a problem, only if you are desperate for a sleep in.
Manel was very friendly, very accommodating and a pleasure to meet. He was very informative about the area and only too happy to help. The flat was very much as described in the advert and clean. The location was central and convenient. It was a bit noisy at night as people were coming down the street throughout the night, but to be expected for the area.
Manel was a great host, very helpful and friendly. The place is nice and comfortable, just like in the pictures. It has all the basics, including a fully stocked kitchen and a/c. The location is fantastic, just a block from la Rambla, close to the beach and most attractions. Would highly recommend
Manel was very kind and helpful, he helped carry our bags and responded very quickly with any questions we had. Easily accessible and the apartment was in a great location. Very roomy for 4 ppl
The Apartment was like on the pictures! Manel was very nice, friendly and open-minded... It wasnt any problem that we arrived after 11pm. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful flat! We had a great time!

About the Host, Manel
Manel and I'm born and live in Barcelona with my partner and my two daughters. I speak english, french, italian, catalan and spanish.
I like Barcelona, I realize that the locals are very lucky: we can walk, cycle, swim in the sea, enjoy terraces, Art rooms, old warehouses, plazas and streets filled centenarians living throughout the year.
I, at least, I do and I can recommend excursions, Itineriaries, special sites (for normal ...) that you will like a lot.
I also like to sing and play guitar, in fact I know wonderful places to sing and enjoy :-))) I can also recommend tours around Barcelona: Collserola, Montjuic, Forum .... you only have to come and carried away ....Adeuuuu!
Manel et je suis né et vit à Barcelone avec mon conjoint et mes deux filles.
J'aime Barcelone, je me rends compte que les habitants sont très chanceux: nous pouvons marcher, faire du vélo, nager dans la mer, profiter des terrasses, des salles d'art, de vieux entrepôts, des places et des rues centenaires vivant tout au long de l'année remplis.
Moi, du moins, je fais et je peux recommander des excursions, Itineriaries, des sites spéciaux (pour la normale ...) que vous voulez beaucoup.
J'aime aussi chanter et jouer de la guitare, en fait, je sais endroits merveilleux pour chanter et profiter :-))) Je peux aussi vous recommander des visites autour de Barcelone: Collserola, Montjuic, Forum .... il suffit de venir et emporter .... Adeuuuu!

Adeuuu!!
Sóc en Manel i he nascut i visc a Barcelona amb la meva parella i dos filles.

També m'agrada molt cantar i tocar la guitarra, de fet conec llocs meravellosos per cantar i gaudir :-))) També us puc recomanar excursions pels voltants de Barcelona: Collserola, Montjuïc, Fòrum .... només heu de venir i deixar-vos portar ....
