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.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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 .

Interaction with Guests

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 Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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!

  • The apartment is very cosy and clean and has a good location in the middle of the district Raval with a lot of little shops and bars in the near and short distances to the metro and the street La Rambla.
    Perfect to explore the heart of Barcelona by foot.
    The neighborhood was a little bit loud but i think that is spanish city life.
    Manel was a very friendly and helpful host who informed us well with all needed informations.

  • A wonderful, spacious apartment. Very clean and tidy, just as it appears in the pictures. Very convenient for getting around Barcelona as it's right in the middle of town. Manel was lovely, and a very obliging host. Would definitely stay again.

  • Had a great stay here with my husband and parents. It's a perfect apartment for a family or two couples. The location was FANTASTIC-- easy walking distance to most of the sites and close to restaurants and night life-- but just far enough off the main drag to feel like you are really soaking up Spanish life. The neighborhood was a little loud, but that's city life. The apartment could use a few updates like new bed frames and linens, but it was a great value for the price. I would happily stay here again.

  • We had a really good stay in the apartment with two kids - Manel very easy to communicate with and helpful. The apartment is in a great neighbourhood, close to transport, galleries, great food shops and real people. The noise at night was just people on the street and kids in the playground. The pictures are accurate and we would certainly stay again. Thanks Manel.

  • Very centrally located flat in Raval. Ramblas, Barri Gotic, Mercat Boqueria can all be reached by foot. Raval offers nice cafés, bars, and restaurants. A metro station (Sant Antoni) is 5 min. and a supermarket 2 min. away from the flat. The place is ideal for two people as it provides enough room to have a minute on your own. If you are planning to visit with more people, the flat holds a third room with two extra beds which is very dark as it has only a small rear window. The kitchen is well equipped. The bathroom is very functional although the shower might be a little narrow for a bigger person. Staying that central was perfect for us, however, if you have a light sleep bear in mind that it can geht very noisy in Raval by night. We definitely recommend this flat and are planning to stay there again.

    Manel was a brillant host. He responded quickly on the request, answered all our countless questions, offered extra tips on how to approach the city, was timely very flexible. Someone you could rely on in a foreign city.

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.

Manel et je suis né et vit à Barcelone avec mon conjoint et mes deux filles. Nous avons un établissement de petite entreprise dans le centre-ville.

Moi, du moins, je fais et je peux recommander des excursions, Itineriaries, des sites spéciaux (pour la normale ...) que vous voulez beaucoup.

Adeuuuu! Soy Manel y he nacido y vivo en Barcelona junto a mi pareja y mis dos hijas. Tenemos un pequeño negocio de alojamientos en el centro de la ciudad. Me gusta Barcelona, me doy cuenta que los barcelonesers somos muy afortunados: podemos pasear, ir en bici, nadar en el Mar, disfrutar de terrazas, salas de Arte, bodegas viejas, plazas y calles centenarias llenas der vida durante todo el año. Yo, por lo menos, lo hago y os puedo recomendar excursiones, itineriarios, sitios especiales (por normales...) que os gustaran. También me gusta mucho cantar y tocar la guitarra, de hecho conozco sitios maravillosos para cantar y disfrutar :-))) También os puedo recomendar excursiones por los alrededores de Barcelona: Collserola, Montjuic, Fórum.... solo teneis que venir y dejaros llevar.... Adeuuu!! Sóc en Manel i he nascut i visc a Barcelona amb la meva parella i dos filles. Tenim un petit negoci d'allotjaments al centre de la ciutat. M'agrada Barcelona, m'adono que els barcelonins som molt afortunats: podem passejar, anar en bici, nedar al mar, gaudir de terrasses tot l'any, sales d'Art, cellers velles, places i carrers centenaris plens de vida durant tot l'(website hidden), almenys, ho faig i us puc recomanar excursions, itineriarios, llocs especials (per normals ...) que us agradaran molt. 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 ....
