The apartment has two big balconies with large floor to ceiling double windows overlooking the 14th century Santa Maria church and the picturesque Plaza del Pi, a pretty square that is buzzing with cafe's and art sellers in the day time and calm and (email hidden)uth facing, the apartment is filled with sunlight from sunrise to sunset and cooled by a breeze in the summer which carries in the chiming of the ancient bells of Santa Maria del Pi.
There is a dining room and lounge with sofas and a table that seats eight, a clean and fully fitted kitchen and a modern bathroom with small bath and powerful shower.
The apartment is in a pretty, quiet square in the heart of the historic centre, overlooking the 14th century Santa Maria church. It would genuinely be hard to find a more central apartment in Barcelona or a more convenient base from which to explore this wonderful city.

Barny's place was great and Barny in particular was a great host! He even made us an extra copy of the key as we were two people and there was only one pair of key available.
The location of the apartment is really really good. Great shopping and great restaurants very close. Super cozy area!
The apartment was quite responsive though but I guess that is due to European standard :)
We had a wonderful stay in Barny's apartment. It is a superb location! The apartment is very large and airy with great light. Ben, who met us and gave us the key, etc, was very friendly and super helpful. It is, however, on the third floor, so quite a few steps - maybe not the best choice for older people to stay. The beds were really comfortable and the whole flat was tastefully furnished - a great atmosphere all round!
We really enjoyed our November stay at the apartment. Barny and Ben were lovely to deal with. The apartment had all that we needed, was clean, spacious and had stylish decor which made it feel very homely. We looked forward to getting back to the apartment after a long day out. The location is absolutely fantastic being very central off La Rambla with most places in walking distance although the metro is also close by. The surrounding Gothic quarter is beautiful, with lots great shops and eateries on the small historic streets and stunning architecture from the Cathedral to Portal del Bisbe etc. We were also able to watch buskers from the balcony in the square below and La Boqueria and the Miro mural on La Rambla pavement are just 5 minutes away. Although the temperatures in the city were pretty cold while we were there the heaters provided kept us warm and comfortable in the apartment. The hot water was a little sparse on a couple of mornings but the guys were quick to resolve it. Also as mentioned previously there are a lot of stairs up to the apartment so hard work if carrying something heavy but this wasn't a problem for us. We definitely will be back to check out even more of Barcelona and would be more than happy to stay at this apartment again. Nice touch with the recommendations and recipes on the board in the kitchen! Thanks a million.
We had a wonderful weekend in Barcelona. The apartment is really nice and just perfectly located. Tasteful interior, spacious rooms, nice balconies. Barny and Ben are really nice and helpful. We arrived and felt at home.
The apartment is surrounded by bars and restaurants - perfect...but it could be noisy. If you are looking for a quiet night, this is not the right place. If you want to explore Barcelona it's just fantastic,
Negative points are the rather old and small bathroom and the steep stairs. But nothing we couldn't live with...we'll definetly come back!
Barny's apartment is in a great position overlooking a vibrant square.
We loved the atmosphere, yes there is noise but it is quiet at night.
Great bedrooms and a relaxing living area, all in all a great place to stay in Barcelona!
This was our first visit to Barcelona and we could not have had a better location. We loved the two small balconies from which we could watch the world going by in the Plaza del Pi. We were prepared for the stairs and some noise but it was all part of the experience. Ben made us feel very welcome. All the amenities in the flat were as described other than the shower which was not very powerful. Overall a great place to stay in Barcelona.
There was a bit of a mix-up when we arrived at the apartment (we ended up enjoying some wine at a café in the plaza while we waited), but the apartment was great! It was very spacious, pretty clean, and we appreciated having a kitchen immensely--as soon as we had settled in, we went to the nearby market and purchased food to make a nice dinner.
We tried some of the Barny's recommendations for bars and restaurants, and they were all good. The apartment itself is located in a great area, with easy access to the cathedral, markets, and tons of shops, bars and restaurants.
One thing to note: There seemed to be a lot of trash/recycling activity on the street, the noise from which sometimes woke us up.
But this was small compared to how much we enjoyed the location and the apartment itself. The sounds of the street performers in the plaza and the views from the balconies made for an even memorable experience. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Barny was a gracious host and went over and above to accommodate my group's arrival. He responded very quickly to my inquiries and gave great recommendations for food and drinks! The apartment is kept clean, the view from the balcony is gorgeous and the location is accessible to everything! Make sure to bring ear plugs as it can get very noisy late at night and early in the morning. I would totally recommend Barny and his properties!
Barny's apartment was perfectly located: i.e. just behind the commotion of La Ramblas, but near to the Parc de La Citudad, the beach, the market off La Ramblas and also the one on the way to the Parc de La Citudad. Having 2 balconies was a pure luxury that we enjoyed. The place is very sunny and clean. It is perfectly located to enjoy the culinary delights of the city and to just relax after a long day of sightseeing. He even left a nice bottle of wine in the fridge for us as a welcome gift. Wireless connection great. Maps at our disposal. Overall, a great 4 days in Barcelona! However, if you are noise sensitive, please do note that the apartment overlooks a 'square/place' so you will have noise from the cafes. neighborhood dogs, and random people in the street.' In my opinion, these are the noises of life, but if you need absolute quiet...consider this. ENJOY!
Location great. Goods views over square from the 2 small balconies. Rooms were actually bigger then they appear in photos. And 75 stairs to the apartment so at least you can burn off all the tapas you will eat!
