Charming and comfortable apartment in the center of the old city of Barcelona, just minutes from main attractions such as La Rambla, the open-air market La Boqueria, and museums.
Located on the first storey of a historic building (160 years), but recently renovated, the apartment is able to sleep four; a private room in the back of the house and a separate bedroom in the front of the apartment with the bed on an elevated platform with stairs - both double beds adorned with sheets and pillows. For the bathroom, hand and bath towels at your disposal. Additionally all of the essentials of a modern home; kitchen includes a ceramic stove, refrigerator, dish washer, oven, microwave, espresso machine, toaster and a water filtration system.
Heating within the apartment during the cooler months, and ceiling fans for the warmer time of year. The front room opens up to the street with a small balcony for people watching or the breeze of the Mediterranean.
Television and Wifi enabled.
The apartment is located just 5 minutes from the most visited area of Barcelona, however it is tucked away on a pedestrian alley known for its Vintage clothing shops. Very conveniently located to 3 metro lines (Liceu L3, Universitat L1 y Sant Antoni L2). Other points of interest include cultural centers such as CCCB, MACBA, Filmoteca de Catalunya, or historical monuments such as Gaudi's Palau Güell, Monumento a Colón and the famous market La Boqueria where Ferran Adrià and the city's other greatest chefs do their shopping.
Within close proximity to the flat are many hip pubs, tapas bars and restaurants.
Barceloneta is the closest beach, 25 minutes walking, or 10 by bike. You have beach towels on the apartment at your disposal.

David was a great host, always available to answer questions and prompt to resolve concerns.
The apartment is just as shown in the photos, comfortably furnished with everything necessary to enjoy even a longer stay. It's also in a fantastic central location, within easy walking distance of multiple metro lines, and right at the top of La Rambla del Raval with its fun bars and restaurants and colorful atmosphere.
For me, there were only two drawbacks. First, the apartment gets very little light, so even on a bright sunny day, it's dark inside, without turning on the artificial lights. Second, the neighbors directly above have children who run up and down the length of the apartment half the day, so it's a bit unrestful, if you're staying in to work with the constant clomping of little feet overhead.
Die Wohnung befindet sich gleich um die Ecke des bekannten Marktes La Boqueria und der Flaniermeile Las Ramblas. Sie liegt damit super zentral, aber ist, da sie sich in einer Seitengasse befindet, doch angenehm ruhig. Die Wohnung selber bietet genügend Platz für 4 Personen und ist sehr gut eingerichtet. David ist ein perfekter Gastgeber. Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld und die Verabredung vor Ort haben super geklappt und seine Tips für unseren Aufenthalt in Barca waren Gold wert. Vielen Dank dafür!
What a great apartment! It felt even more spacious than the photos suggest. David was incredibly hospitable and flexible, recommended some great local bars/restaurants and stored our luggage til our late departing flight. The location is in a really cool neighbourhood, with an array of bars, restaurants, shops, bakeries & cafes all within walking distance. All in all, a perfect trip. Thank you!!! :)
A lovely apartment! Clean and comfortable. Recently renovated. David was there to greet us and just a phone call away if we needed help. In Raval, you are minutes from La Rambla and within walking distance to other great neighborhoods, including Gotic and El Born, and about a 30 minute stroll to the marina and beaches. La Boqueria, a charming outdoor market, is around the corner, which is convenient if you are planning to make some meals at home, but there are some great eateries there too. It was perfect!
David was very hospitable and flexible, could store our luggage till late departing flight.
Location is in a pleasant neighborhood, walking distance from metro and the busy Ramblas. Shops are right around the corner. Bakery at 20m walking distance. The street is an old street, so is the building, but the apartment itself is fine and spacious.
David's apartment was the perfect place for our family. It's location was very good. It's near metro station (especially Liceu), Ramblas, Cathedral and Gothic street. We always walked around these places. It is also located in Raval, we enjoyed Bars of Raval. His apartment was clean enough and everything was provided. (Hair dryer, towels, microwave oven. . .) And David is very kind. We enjoyed 4 days in his apartment, and after we left to Granada, we find that we left my back pack in David's apartment. We sent a message to David, and he kindly sent it to our hotel by parcel service immediately. We really loved his apartment, and appreciated his kindness.
staying here was an absolute pleasure! Everything was as described and he went out of his way to help us with our bags and call a taxi to the airport, the perfect apartment. Thank you!
Hi! My name is David and I was born in Barcelona 43 years ago. I like to travel and try to go out to see the world when I have vacations.
I work as technical arquitect, specialized on building restoration. My office and home is in the Raval neighbourhood. I live with my partner Eli (she's on the profile picture with me). If someone wants to know places to eat, drink, shopping in Barcelona only have to ask me. I like my city and I like to transmit my enthusiasm to others.
