The Space

Welcome to this renovated apartment in the heart of the Gothic quarter, 400m from the famous ´Ramblas´, near all the restaurants and bars and only 500m from the seafront.

The apartment was recently renovated with style and comfort in mind while keeping all the charm of its original nineteenth century architecture. As mentioned, the flat is in a very central location with plenty of bars, clubs, hundreds of restaurants and major tourist attractions right on the doorstep.

Not only it will make your stay pleasant and comfortable but its location will help to plan all your adventures around Barcelona with ease.

The 2 rooms apartment comfortably welcomes up to 4 guests, there is the chance to host children or a extra guest in the adjoining small room to the main bedroom, which we mainly suggest to use as a storage room.
It includes all necessities, a new kitchen, a bathroom. It has double-glazing and is located only 1 floor up (no lift). All within walking distance of all nightlife, entertainment and the beach.

  • We had a mixed stay in the apartment. We were in Spain celebrating our 10-year anniversary, and Paola and Marisa were nice enough to get us a bottle of Cava upon our arrival. Check-in was easy, Marisa was there when we arrived and allowed us to check in early.

    The apartment is in a great location and very centrally located to almost everything. As others noted, the street is very busy and can get loud. The bedroom being in the back helps, as did a white noise app on our cell phones.

    We did see 2 roaches in the apartment. After notifying Marisa, she and Paola came the next day and sprayed. We never had any other issues. Marisa explained that they were doing some work on the building and that was likely the cause. The building is older so perhaps not unexpected.They said they have never had any issues before. We were happy with their response to the issue and think they did what they could.

    The lobby of the building is very underwhelming but the apartment itself is cute. The bathroom smelled a little musty but probably pretty typical for the age of the building.

  • Thanks for a wonderful stay! Don't let the front entrance fool you! The location is magnificent, centrally located in the Gothic District, easy walking distance to the beach and other wonderful areas. We were able to walk the city!
    The apartment is small and comfortable. We spent most of our time exploring the city. It would be too small if your goal was to lounge in the apartment for long periods of time. As others mentioned, the street can be noisy, but the bedroom is in the back of the apartment and very quiet. The kitchen is small and "lightly" equipped. You would not want to prepare gourmet meals there, but it is adequate for simple fare.
    Thanks Paola! Barcelona is an impressive city. Your apartment served us well. Marisa was very helpful on arrival and helped us with several questions during our stay.

  • Muy buen apartamento,en pleno barrio gótico.Estuve con mi hija y nos resultó muy cómodo y agradable. Nos recibió Paola, muy amable a pesar que nuestro vuelo llegó con más de una hora de demora por un paro de los cargos en el aeropuerto.Las noches son un poco ruidosas pero es parte del encento de estar en un barrio con mucha movida y barcitos de tapas,genial!!
    Lo recomiendo sin dudas!!

  • Appartement atypique, très Barcelonais, au coeur du gothique, à deux pas des Ramblas, du Born, de Barceloneta et du métro.
    Il a été très agréable de séjourner dans cet appartement et de vivre à la barceonaise le temps de quelques jours.
    Il se situe au premier étage d'un immeuble ancien, il dispose du confort idéal et d'une décoration à la fois originale et moderne.
    La rue est un peu bruyante mais la chambre étant au fond vous n'aurez pas de souci, nous avons de plus très bien dormi pendant ces quelques jours !
    En bas de l'immeuble vous trouverez une boulangerie (un peu chère, je vous conseille le pain de l'épicier, il est moins cher et meilleur!), donc une supérette aussi (idéal pour la course de secours), sinon un Dia n'est pas très loin mais à regarder car je serai incapable de redire où il est. Sinon le Carrefour des Ramblas reste le plus avantageux mais c'est à 15mn de marche environ. Une autre supérette plus grande est au bout de la rue.

  • The apartment is in an excellent location - the Barri Gotic is very cool and really comes alive at night This does make for a bit of nocturnal noise, but the bedrooms are at the back so it didn't stop us (or our bub) from sleeping. The only thing is that you have to choose whether you leave the front window closed overnight for security or open for airflow to the bedrooms.

    The beach is walking distance, as is La Rambla and some cool local markets. There is a metro station (and good coffee - Cafes el Magnifico) nearby should you want to go further afield.

    Paola emailed us a very nice comprehensive email with recommendations (Picnic cafe breakfast tapas - INCREDIBLE) and directions for the local area, along with tips for things (scams and such) to look out for in Barcelona - local knowledge - always a good thing!!

    Check in and check out were easy, Marisa met us at the flat and kindly booked a cab for us to the airport. We had everything we needed, once we figured out that the wifi would only work (for us, anyway!) in the front room :)

  • We had a perfect stay in Paola's apartment! The location couldn't have been better; close to the beach and nice restaurants, cafees, shops, bars etc. in lovely Barri Gothic and Born. Clean and cozy apartment. Paola was a great host, very helpful and easy to communicate with. We would love to stay there again!

  • Paola was a lovely host and the apartment was exactly as pictured. She was super easy to communicate with, gave us a very comprehensive guide to Barcelona and allowed us to store our bags on check out day. Would highly recommend Paola and this apartment to anyone interested.

  • Paola was a wonderful hostess - very quick to answer any emails. Although we didn't get to meet her, we were greeted by Marisa at the front door and she gave us a quick rundown and she was very informative and friendly.

    The apartment is so charming - a fusion of old and new features in the heart of the gothic area. The apartment was very clean and we immediately felt at home. It also had fans which are very necessary in the Barcelona heat.

    We loved staying here and both agreed it added to our experience of the trip.

    Make sure to try Sensi two doors down - the food is both affordable and excellent, and the staff is extremely friendly. We liked it so much we ate there twice.

    Thank you to Paola and Marisa!

  • Lovely apartment and a perfect location!
    Paola was very efficient with responding to requests, emails and queries.
    We did not meet Paola but was met by Marisa with a warm bright smile when we checked in which was welcoming. We arrived later at the apartment then the planned check- in but Marisa was there waiting patiently. Thank you!!
    The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with clean towels and bed linen and located within easy access to many of the popular tourist sites in Barcelona as well as the beach and the Port.
    Paola was brilliant as she provided lots of useful information on using public transport, places to eat and local places of interest before we arrived.
    There were a few electric fans in the apartment which were much needed when the mornings and the evenings were hot.
    This was my first time using Airbnb and I didn’t know what to expect but my children and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of staying in the apartment and experiencing Barcelona as a Barcelonian!!

About
I'm an italian artist living in Barcelona for almost 10 years. . I'm in love with the city and the people who make it so special. I love getting lost in the narrow streets of its old districts and being still able to find shops and bars with an ancient feel. I usually offer my own place on AirBnB when I'm away from Barcelona due to my job and, moreover, I manage some beautiful apartments situated in the Gothic district. My pleasure is to help people to discover the best side of this city e to make their stay an unforgettable experience. Me and my friends would be glad to welcome and help you during your stay in Barcelona.
