This is a very spacious apartment, very elegantly decorated, with floors, doors, windows and wooden beams. Very cozy and warm is decorated in a Mediterranean style and is perfect for 4 or 5 people.
Large apartment of 80 m2 located next to Carme street in Barcelona in the very heart of the historic centre of the city. Sunny and comfortable, this flat is provided with wooden floors and beams. This decoration, by preserving the original materials of the apartment, gives it a very warm atmosphere and charm. The windows are facing south, which allows the apartment to be sunny all day. The living room is spacious and is provided with a balcony which faces a square where a small and pretty romanesque church stands since middle ages.
The main room is a double bedroom, which is also very spacious and suuny; it has as well a small balcony and a wardrobe of period. The kitchen is the most original place of the apartment: open to the living room, it is decorated with ceramic in Mediterranean style and local marble. The second room has two or three beds (in case of need) and its respective wardrobe.
It has WIFI , so you will be able to contact family and friends explaining to the experiences you are having in this wonderful city .
A 5 -minute walk from Plaça Catalunya. 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 , Columbus monument , etc. Near Port Vell and Maremagnum Shopping Centre . 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 Raval quarter is located between the left side of the Eixample and the Gótico quarters. It is one of the quarters with more changes in the last years, going from a very popular neighbourhood to a dynamic area where restorers, designers, architects and artists have chosen it a place to settle, making the quarter one of the most dynamic, trendy and multi-ethnical ones of the city, yet without losing its popular charm.
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA), the Centre of Contemporary Culture (CCCB), and the Universities have eased the change of a marginal area to a cosmopolitan one, becoming a reference for all the city.
In the Raval the old and the modern blend naturally; for this we can see how the neighbourhood enjoys all type of facilities, from the most modern ones to the lifelong stores –the great markets of the Boquería or Sant Antoni. Therefore, the traditional, the modern, and the alternative coexist in this quarter in permanent evolution.
We must also point out the Rambla del Raval, a spacious and sunny place where every Saturday a handicraft fare takes place.
Only 5 minutes from the metro station Liceu, Sant Antoni and 5 minutes from Plaça Catalunya.
In Plaza Catalunya is the Aerobus, the bus to the airport!
We would ask that you please do not smoke inside the house, please use the balcony.
We are aware that things can break, glassware and crockery particularly simple and not charge you for replaceable items.
Please respect the rest of neighbors with regard to noise at night. Enjoy the peace and the comforts of home - but please, can not have parties.
Towels are provided for use in the apartment is not allowed to take them out of the house. If you are planning to go to the beach or pool, bring your own towels. Please take your trash and do not leave dirty dishes.
My family and I arranged to meet Manel at the apartment when we arrived to Barcelona. We took a cab from the airport and he found the address easily. Manel let us in and explained how to run it. The apartment was everything we had hoped for, comfort, clean and plenty big enough for a family of five. The view from the balconies is just lovely, overlooking a small park and an ancient church. The only concern was the shower is a bit of a challenge.
The neighbourhood is exactly what we had wanted, 5 minute walk to Las Ramblas, lots of little shops for food and groceries and great restaurants. The port area was only about a 20 minute walk. We were able to walk to many of the sights from the apartment. The location is perfect!
I would definatly recommend this apartment.
Manel의 숙소는 라발지구에 위치했으며 리세우역과 보케리아 시장이 가깝습니다.
주인이 매우 친절하고 근처에 살고 있어 도움 청하기가 좋았습니다.
근처에 수퍼마켓이 많아 생활하는데 불편함은 없었습니다.
거실 침실이 분위기가 좋았고 침대도 편했습니다. 주방기구도 고루 준비되어 있었습니다. 다만 욕실이 너무 좁고 뜨거운 물이 충분히 나오지 않아 여럿이 한꺼번에 씻을 수는 없었습니다.
그 외에는 모두 좋았습니다.
L'appartamento é semplicemente squisito. Spazioso e accogliente, pulito e curato. La struttura non è nuovissima, ma molto molto caratteristica. Si trova in una posizione centrale a due passi dalla Rambla, dal mercato della Boqueria e dalla spiaggia. Manel é simpaticissimo e molto disponibile, ci ha accolto come se fossimo sue vecchie amiche e ci ha dato molte dritte su posti da visitare e su dove trovare cibi buoni e a buon prezzo.
Manel nos recibió fenomenal. El piso está muy bien situado para patear la ciudad, y tiene encanto, pero está un poco deteriorado en general, tanto el mobiliario como la limpieza un poco escasa.
The appartment is perfectly situated, it is quite calm even if you can hear the neighboors. The appartment is clean.
The only default is the shower which is quite managable.
Communication with Manel is very smooth
Manel war sehr kooperativ, freundlich und es hat alles bestens geklappt.
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön, zentral und verkehrsgünstig gelegen. Aus der Haus raus und mitten im Leben von El Raval. Klasse!
Da es sich um einen Altbau handelt und gegenüber ein Spielplatz ist, ist hier keine ländliche Ruhe zu erwarten.
Great place, great host, great location. The apartment is large, convenient and well equipped. Suitable for a family (we were 4) and very close to the Ramblas and the barri gotic. Manel was very helpful and responsive, have waited for us in the apartment upon arrival and was able to provide useful tips for Barcelona. The neighborhood is very lively and colorful and there are a market, stores, bakeries and restaurants within an extremely short walking distance. One comment: the main bedroom can get a bit noisy - so if you are a light sleeper you want to bring earplugs with you (or buy in the pharmacy just downstairs).

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!

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 ....
