About this listing
great flat on the artistic private passeig where artist 'miro' was born. The 18th century french windows and balcony could be the high point for most people though the rest of the house is artistic and unique. We are sure you will love our home :)
Situated on a rare private street In the heart of 'el gotico' where the artist 'Miro' was born, this rare 19th century apartment is full of individual pieces and it is the perfect place to spend your vacation in Barcelona. The balcony is charming and a great place to enjoy morning breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. There are 2 large double bedrooms a spacious kitchen; there is also bathroom and a lovely living/balcony area.
This 75m2 space is perfect for up to 6 people. There is a optional extra bed for up to 6 people that can be set up in the master bedroom or the living area. The early 19th century windows spanning the length of the entire flat are also very unique.
There is a free fast Internet access within the flat and the flat is in the middle of the city whilst being on a private street making it not so loud compared to the rest of this lively city, there are also 2 fans for the summer and 2 portable heaters for the winter :)
The gotic area is one of the oldest areas in Barcelona, the architecture is stunning and the restaurants and bars are of top quality, you can even walk to the beach in 10 mins. There are 2 local metro stations within 5 mins walk from the flat and to grab a taxi would take a matter of seconds making it easy to travel around. If you have any further questions we would be happy to help and also please ask us to send over our list of local tips for restaurants and bars etc.. it has been made with our years of knowledge of living in Barcelona for the last decade.
Thanks for reading and we are sure you will love our beautiful home.
Just enjoy yourself and respect the neighbors who live there full time :)
Stayed three nights and could not have asked for a better place to stay. There was plenty of space for four people, the location was ideal for food and was walking distance to the beach. Ananda was very kind, responsive and recommended a lot of delicious local places to eat and drink. Will definitely book again if back in Barcelona. We also had no problem with the wifi.
Let me start by saying this is a good location, but…
This review is for "Charming Balcony Flat in Gotico". (some review were for other properties) We were VERY disappointed from the moment we walked in. The flat seemed old and worn out and not very clean, The linens were marginally clean. Some of the furniture and lighting shown in the photographs had been removed. And it was very noisy, with traffic, music and loud conversation. The pull down blinds did not work properly and you look into the neighbors windows which are about 50 feet across from you. Only one light in the bathroom (showed 3 in the photo), there was a dirty comforter on the sofa to shore up the sagging middle, etc, etc, etc.
We left after one day and booked another much nicer, cheaper Airbnb close to Plaza Espana that was as advertised.
Location is really excellent - you're in the centre of the Gothic quarter, not far from El Born, Barceloneta & Las Ramblas. It is definitely really noisy though - bring ear plugs!
Communication before week of arrival wasn't ideal - I sent 3 messages before receiving a reply which started to worry me. I did hear back several days before departure though and it all worked out. During our stay, communication was really good though.
We didn't have issues with wifi but there were several lights that weren't working throughout the apartment (including the bathroom!) so a maintenance check should be conducted and a few things could be renewed.
The apartment does have great character though - if a few issues are sorted out, it'd be a perfect place to stay!
It's a very beautiful apartment, as it described. The apartment was very clean when we arrived.
The apartment is near the center of the city, and it's very comfortable.
The apartment was beautifully designed and also the real Barcelona experience we were looking for! Clean, immaculate and perfect location. The hosts were also extremely quick at responding to any questions I had. I would highly recommend!!
Brilliant place . Loved the apartment in a top spot close to all the best spots.
The apartment was excellent and Ananda look after us really well. We got all the local knowledge on where to shop , to eat and to see.
Could recommend highly. We'll be back.
Thanks Amanda you have provided us with awesome memories
AMAZING!! This beautiful little apartment is wonderful. The position is brilliant , giving easy access to the ancient maze of alleys in the old city.
Amanda couldn't have been more helpful. She met us spot on time which was appreciated given the late hour of our arrival.
Will be back to Gotic and will definitely be staying with Ananda and Phillip
