We are right in the center of Barcelona, in the cosmopolitan Gothic neighbourhood.
The flat is one block from the famous Rambla, and very near the beautiful Plaza Real.
There are also plenty of places to have a nice breakfast, very nice terraces, and lots of bars and clubs. The famous Boqueria market is just across in La Rambla (5 minutes walk) and has an amazing wide range of fresh fruit juices everyday.

From here you can easily access by foot to all the different neighbourhoods : 10 minutes to the Born, 5 minutes to the Raval, 15 minutes to Barceloneta beach, 10 minutes to the Eixample, 10 minutes to Poble Sec.

We were looking for a convenient place to stay that was more affordable than most hotels in Barcelona for a recent 3 night stay. Maya and Santi's place is right in the heart of LaRambla and Plaza Real. It is great if you want to be in that area. It is very touristy but there is a lot of action there. We were able to get around and walk to a lot of areas. We also took the hop-on / hop-off bus for our sight seeing which picks up about 5 minutes from the apartment.
The apartment itself is great for people that are simply looking for a place to sleep that is clean. Santi met us upon our arrival and helped us with our bags up the multiple flights of stairs. The only nerve racking problem is that they are cracking down on Air BnB in Barcelona and they have people on the street asking if you are using an Air BNB apartment. Maya and Santi warned us of this and we just told them no. But going into a foreign country, it still makes you a bit nervous when approached by a total stranger. We got through this though. Here are our pros and cons:
*Centrally located right off of LaRambla
*Good communication with Maya and Santi
*Santi met us and helped with our luggage and made some suggestions for places to eat and sites to see.
*Bathroom was good size and the water pressure was good
*Bedroom and kitchen were good size
*Lots of narrow stairs to navigate up and down (not for handicapped or older people)
*Bedroom was dark and could use a few lamps. Only had one dim light.
*Only 1 pillow per person. Could have used two pillows each.
*No A/C so I could see it being hot in the summer there. It was upper 60's and lower 70's for our trip but if you had the front window open to get breeze in, it would be quite loud being by Plaza Real.
All in all, we had a great experience. This place met the criteria we were looking for in that it was affordable and well located. Our hosts did everything they said they would and there were no problems. That is all we could ask for and Maya and Santi delivered.
Das war eine sehr unkomplizierte Ferienwohnung! Santi hat mich empfangen und mir alles gezeigt. Die Wohnung ist großzügig und da das Schlafzimmer Fenster zu einem Lichtschacht hat, kann man auch nachts relativ ruhig schlafen.
Im Wohnzimmer habe ich ein Sofa vermisst, aber den Mini-Balkon genossen. Ich mochte die integrierte Küche - so kann man wenigstens ein paar der Köstlichkeiten aus der naheglegenen Boqueria genießen. Und eine Flasche Wein kühlen.
Santi und Maya waren sehr sympathische und unkomplizierte Gastgeber, der Kontakt mit ihnen war sehr angenehm.
a great place to stay with a very attentive and considerate host. Very clean. location is superb and the apartment caters to all the basics.
Marvellous stay right in the very heart of the Barri Gotic, an excellent location for exploring Barcelona.
We met Maya and Santi at the flat and they were very nice and showed us around the apartment, which is beautiful! Everything was super clean and just like how it looks in the pictures. The location was perfect, right off of La Rambla and nearly right on Placa Reial. Would recommend staying here!
Fantastic apartment right at the edge of the wonderful gothic quarter and La Rambla. The apartment is a couple of minute walk to a metro station which gives you quick access to all of Barcelona. Nice and spacious and great value for money. Santi and Maya were wonderful hosts and very helpful. Very glad we chose to stay here.
