This charming flat of 36 m2 is located on a private street in the Gothic district of Barcelona (old city) just between the Ramblas and the Cathedral. It's layout is one open space divided in: cooking area, with a fully equipped kitchen, a living room area with a dinning table & 4 chairs and a sofa bed . The bedroom area is separated with a curtain and has a double closet. There is also an exclusive bathroom with a jacuzzi bathtub!
It is by far the most artistic of our apartments.
The white floor and walls serve as a background for the original art paintings on the walls.
You will be able to relax and sleep like an angel, as the little private street where the apartment is located is very quiet. There is also a flat LCD TV.
what you will find in the apartment:
1 real double bed
1 double sofa bed
1 dinning table
The apartment's equipment
•iron & ironing board
•FREE INTERNET WIFI
The surrounding area:
The area around the apartment, mostly pedestrian, is in the heart of the Gothic district where the most famous stores of Barcelona are located, as well as many other shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. The “Plaça Catalunya” and the famous “Ramblas” street are just at few meters from the apartment with the “Boqueria” market and the “Liceu” Theater, just a few minutes away. The Gothic cathedral of Barcelona is also very close.
It's a nice loft style appartement, artistically decorated and perfect located for shopping and sightseeing. Really beautiful. A lot of interessting spots are just a few minutes by walk away. Although we never met Lucas, his friend (girl) who welcomed us was very nice and helpfull.
So why only 3 stars? It's because of the big, but very hard bed respectively mattress (a little bit too uncomfortable for the back). And sometimes it's was too noisy in the appartement because of the fridge and another device (maybe the ventilation or air conditioning?).
I think I would recommend this appartement to young people, who don't have any sleep problems and need a nice flat, which is very good located.
Perfect location!!!! and great space...
I definitely recommend this place!!!... book it!!! (^_^)
for those of you who need more info, here are the pros and cons...
pros: location!!!, kitchen is nicely stocked with all the utensils you'll need (espresso coffee maker and regular coffee maker, electric tea kettle, pots, dishes, silverware, (it was great to find sugar, salt and pepper), sturdy bed with crispy sheets, clean, quiet, simply decorated (I don't like clutter), privacy, easy and friendly booking, totally worth the price!
cons: little mold in the bathroom tiles, some ware and tear is starting to show (specially in the bathroom), small water heater (I love long hot showers), 2 floor walk up in a very small staircase and stairs (it reminded me of Amsterdam but not so much an issue for me because I travel with a carry on but wondered about bigger suitcases or other situations that might find this difficult).
One thing I'll say is that when I checked in they had very recently painted, which I appreciate the care AND was disturbed by the smell. Had to open the windows to let air flow everyday and then it was fine. I would have preferred to either be warned about it or that painting would have been done a few days prior to my arrival.
And last thing I'll say... I'm planing to come back!!! loved it!!!
A very roomy and comfortable apartment. The location truly could not have been better: everything in walking distance. Arranging things with Lucas was easy and effortless, he even allowed us to check out very late on the day of our departure which made things a lot easier!
The apartment was nice and roomy. Nice stay for a couple. Great location!
Lo mejor del apartamento es la ubicación. En el centro del barrio gótico a mano de todo y pudiendo ir a pie a cualquier lugar. Por lo demás, me ha parecido excesivamente caro para lo que ofrece. Está ubicado en un interior, con ventana a un pseudo patio en el que las máquinas de aire acondicionado sonaban todo el día. Oscuro, y frío. La calefacción estaba estropeada y estuvimos 24 horas sin calor hasta que trajeron un radiador que soluciono el problema. En las fotos parece mucho más bonito, luminoso y acogedor de lo que parece pero quizá esto es cuestión de gusto aunque yo no lo recomendaría a un amigo por el precio que supone. Eso sí, la amabilidad de Mariana esta aparte de esto.
Lovely flat in a super location.
Excellent location and the apartment has everything that you need. It is comfortable and reasonably clean , towels supplied and no hassle. Some noisy upstairs neighbours on occasion, but that would probably be completely normal in a city like this and accommodation like this. Luckily it was normally during the day . Miss seeing daylight but that again is more about the type of place you can find in city centre locations rather than this particular place ! Thank you for giving us a safe haven !
аппартаменты чистые и аккуратные. Ванна и туалет тоже чистые. На кухне есть все , что нужно. Расположение- супер удобное- 5 минут до метро или до паркинга, если вы на машине.
хозяин очень пунктуальный и внимательный.
был только один минус- в аппартаментах нет вида из окна- все окна упираются в стену(((( я была разочарована, но мы все равно приходили только поспать.
apartments are clean and tidy. Bath and toilet also clean. The kitchen has everything you need. Location super-convenient-5 minutes to the subway or to the parking lot, if you have a car.
the owner is very punctual and attentive.
There was only one negative in the apartments have no view from the window, all the windows run into the wall ((((I was disappointed, but we are coming just for sleeping
i will recomend this appartment
The room was in great location - literally 30 seconds from La Ramblas. It was in a secure location off a gated street and was surprisingly quiet considering its central location. Lucas was always prompt with his correspondence through the booking process.
We were most excited about this room as the pictures looked great however upon arrival we were a little disappointed. We had to make 2 phone calls and wait 30 mins for someone to turn up to let us in despite phoning from the airport to advise we were on our way. We paid a 30 euro cleaning fee in cash upon arrival however after taking our shoes off and walking across the floor we were left with dirty feet - the bath had also not been cleaned very well.
The person in charge of check in had only been in Barcelona a few months so was not that helpful in terms of advice of where to eat and drink.
