This is an amazing Barcelona location in the heart of the old gothic town. It is a beautiful large 19th century renovated apartment (100 m2) with very high ceilings (4 meters). The original old beams and tile floor gives the experience of living gothic Barcelona history and yet it is recently renovated and has all the conveniences of home and modern facilities such as newly improved fast reliable Wifi connection, excellent recently renovated central heating which is a rare but welcome feature in Barcelona's old apartments, large double glass sliding windows and luxurious bathroom and modern kitchen...the best of both worlds!

-The newly painted apartment is loft style on the third floor on the back of the building, so there is no sound of traffic and the view is of the inner gardens, gives a feeling of space and peace with many large windows.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the entire apartment, including all sheets and towels, full kitchen usage with pots and pans and food basics. All the cupboards are empty so you have full use to put your clothes in.

Interaction with Guests

As I am away from Barcelona when renting the apartment, I have my housecleaner come and arrange the key pick up and drop off with him.
However, when I am in town, then I enjoy welcoming my guests with wine, cheese and olives, and going out for a coffee in the neighbourhood.

Getting around

Yes, the Metro Urquinaona (Jonqueres entrance) is 100 meters from the apartment and is on the orange line. It is very convenient. There are also many buses passing on Via Laietana, right next to the apartment, as well as the Sightseeing bus next to the cathedral, a few minutes away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was my second time staying at Anna's place and I really like both the flat and the organisation Anna provides for check-in and check-out.
    Highly recommended to groups of friends!

  • Fantastic apartment, we loved it! Such a great central location and yet so quiet; very airy and bright too. Only thing I'd caution against is noise transferal between the bedrooms - not a problem for us but perhaps if you had noisy children or snorers, or people having noisy sex, might be an issue!

    March 2014
  • Great appartement. 3 real bedrooms, a nice living room and a kitchen. The flat is located right in the center, next to many bars and restaurants, and it is at the same time very quiet.

    February 2014
  • Really nice appt, really bright and original !
    the location is perfect !
    thanks again Ana for everything !

    February 2014
  • We had a lovely break in Anna's apartment. It was clean, spacious and very central, so great if you plan to do lots of walking around. We went just after Christmas and the heating worked fine. The wi-fi worked well. Despite the cold-ish weather outside (it was mild compared to the London winters we are used to!), the apartment was warm, especially with the sun streaming through the windows during the day.

    Anna was very easy to deal with before the holiday and the arrangements for collecting and dropping off keys were straightforward and hassle-free. We were a family of three - with a nine year-old child - and I would definitely recommend this for a family or a group of friends. The flat had a nice atmosphere, it was clean and we liked the decor, it was warm and full of character. You could hear the neighbours when they played music at night but it wasn't a big distraction for us.

    Basically we had a very good time there and would happily stay there again if we went to Barcelona.

    January 2014
  • We spent three days in Barcelona and had great times there. The apartment is pretty nice and well located in the down town, with the Barrio Gothico nearby. We recommend it!

    November 2013
  • The flat was really nice and in the center of Barcelona. Really good sport, we walked everywhere.
    I highly recommend this place.

    November 2013
  • The location was perfect! The flat is spacious and lovely and it gets great sunlight in the living room in the afternoons. There were a couple glitches during our stay - the hot water heater was finicky and internet/wifi wasn't functioning, but Anna and I were in touch afterward and it sounds like she has since switched internet carriers and repaired the water heater. So everything in the flat is working great now. We had an amazing time in Barcelona and Anna is a kind and accommodating host.

    Response from Anna:

    Yes indeed, brand new wireless WIFI installed in the
    reliable internet again! Also, a technician came for the water heater, so
    all is back running constantly hot, and the apartment is toasty warm!
    Thanks Sara and Matt for your feedback and communication, helping me
    maintain the highest standards of comfort for my guests.

    October 2013
  • Anna is a perfect host caring and generous. She gives us tips and organizes valuable contacts for us, which has been difficult for us to establish in four days. The apartment is nice and has everything you need within walking distance to the market hall, beach, cozy cafes, restaurants, and close to the airport bus.
    I can really recommend Anna and her place.

    October 2012
  • Thank you for hosting us, Anna! You are very kind and caring. Everything worked out perfectly - that was clear from the beginning since you are very uncomplicated and trustworthy. I really do recommend this place!
