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 :)
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.
What a great location and apartment! Centrally located, clean and very well set out.
Could not have asked for more from our hosts! Richie sent us a great list of local recommendations which we tried a lot of, and really enjoyed them.
We highly recommend this apartment if you are looking for an authentic experience in Barcelona.
L'emplacement est parfait puisqu'au coeur du Barrio Gotico, donc à quelques pas de la Rambla, de la place de Catalogne, de la Cathédrale sublime, des superbes places (Place del Reil et del Pi) où il fait bon boire un chocolat chaud, super bien desservi par tous les transports en commun ... bref, IDEAL. En plus, l'appartement se situe dans un passage privé bourré de charme. Quant au style de l'appartement, très sympa. Un seul bémol : le samedi soir c'est hyper bruyant. C'est le seul bémol !. Un petit creux, le resto d'en bas est une merveille ! Voilà, super séjour, hôte accommodant : tout bien et de ce fait, la prochaine fois, c'est ici que nous poserons nos valises une nouvelles fois.
Generally the apartment was ok, the location was great. However, the apartment was like an igloo. It was really so cold inside, that it was more comfortable to face the strong winds outdoors. Taking a shower was really an act of courage. When we tried to turn on both heaters (which were really weak) there was a blackout!
Also I was disappointed with the lack of sunlight – which probably made the matter worse. Despite the big windows, there was no direct sunlight at all.
For travellers with lots of luggage, also be aware that although the flat is one the first floor, there is a long set of stairs to reach the flat.
Despite these drawbacks, generally the hosts were attentive and professional. Ritchie even bought a brand-new crib for our baby. When there was a situation – like the one that an obnoxious representative of the gas company showed up and said that the gas bill was not paid – they acted on it immediately and avoid the catastrophe.
All in all not bad, but never again during the winter!
Dear Manuela...we are on the very fisrt floor, hardly any stairs to get to our door, we made our best to accommodate you :), the heaters nicely warm up if you put one on each corner of the house and leave them on, we cant have them both on one plug socket, we are on a lovely private 18th century gotic street, cant get any better in the heart of barcelona, more sun light is easier to get out of the center or in a major street. A person delivering a gas bill with an attitude was out of our hands, all in all we do not understand the negativity as there was no problems while you stay with us, we even let you have a late check out cleaning ourselves over night, we hope you had a nice time in Barcelona.
Great apartment, super central. Smooth key hand-over, arrival and departure. Always again! Neil
Great apartment with a great location. The only negative point is the bathroom : old plumbing equipment and ineffective water heater (not hot enough!)
hey thanks we are glad you enjoyed the flat :) we are not sure why it ran out of hot water, even though you were 5 people showering it still should not have ran out as the boiler is gas not electric. We checked and the boiler is now turned up to max, thanks for booking and all the best!!!
Thanks again for letting us stay in your perfectly located flat! :) We had an amazing time and enjoyed the city, the weather and the beach. The location of the apartment in the middle of the city is perfect and makes it easy to excess all the important sights. It was tidy and clean but differed a bit from the pictures as furnitures have been arranged in a different way. Since we want to be honest to those who are interested In this flat we would also like to mention some things which we did not like that much. As the glass of the windows is quite thin it is pretty loud at night - bringing ear plugs makes sense. In addition most of the lights and quite a few sockets did not work. There were two heaters in the apartment but one of them made strange noise and therefore we didn't use it. Furthermore it was not that easy to turn the key of the front door - thanks to my boyfriend I didn't need to struggle with the door :)
All in all , we really enjoyed staying and would definitely come back again!! Maybe already this year. :))
Thanks for the use of your quaint, comfortable and well situated apartment. My wife and I spent two nights here and will definitely be back. Over and above the accommodation Richi was quick to respond to any queries and was kind enough to provide suggestion of city spots based on our preferences. Thank again.
The apartment was very charming and spacious and in an excellent part of town. Only complaint would be the cold. Our stay was in January and it was much colder in the apartment than outside. If you go in the winter be sure to bring extra layers of clothing to sleep! Other than that, Richie was an amazing host, offering us some excellent recommendations of what to do and where to eat.
The apartment has a great location. Itself in a retro style, which is very cool. We came in the winter, so it was a little bit coldly, but we are not complaining.
In general, it is a great apartment. Ritchie has a super english pronunciation, and it's giving him extra 100 points;)
