Catalunya, 150 to La Boqueria, 200 to the Official Cathedral), but yet the most quiet location in Old Gotico, a pedestrian square where you can wake up with the bird singing.

The host met us at the agreed time outside the apartment to handover the keys. We were then shown around the apartment and given details of the city. The apartment was clean and tidy. Overall it was a very satisfactory first experience of using Air BnB.
The apartment is in a great location - you can easily access the Gotic area, Ramblas and the beach. The location is quiet and peaceful, in a lovely square.
The flat itself is a simple but functional - perfect for a smaller budget and group of 4. The apartment had a lift which was bonus.
The rooms are basic and clean. The king size bed is comfortable however the 2 single beds are not great. The bathroom is big and the shower was powerful with plenty hot water. Hairdryers, long mirrors were useful - the flat had everything we needed.
The hosts were friendly and met us with the keys. Good communication on email.
This is a good base to explore Barcelona from - basic and good value for money in the perfect area.
Esculapi et son ami nous ont très bien accueillis, mes deux fils de 10 et 12 ans, mon mari et moi, dans ce très joli appartement du Bario Gotico. Le quartier est piéton, on n'entend pas le bruit de la ville alors que la Rambla est à 100m, et 400m de la place de Catalunya. On peut donc faire beaucoup de balades à pieds pour découvrir la vieille ville de Barcelone. L'appart est très bien équipé : lave-vaisselle, machine à laver, sèche-cheveux, Wifi… La literie est bonne pour le grand lit et suffisante pour les enfants dans la chambre aux deux lits simples, mais peut-être un peu juste pour des adultes. Propreté nickel.
Nous nous sommes rendus à Barcelone avec notre voiture que nous avons laissée dans un parking privé à 200m, de l'autre côté de la Rambla, dont Esculapi nous avait donné l'adresse. Très pratique, nous avons fait les plus longs déplacements en taxi.
Pour conclure, nos cinq jours à Barcelone nous ont enchantés et cet appartement accueillant a bien participé au bon déroulement de notre séjour.
Booked this apartment for my family. The apartment location is great. Very central in the heart of Barrio Gotico. The apartment itself is not that great considering value for money.
The apartment was perfectly located in the Gothic Quarter -- easy strolls to shopping and food along La Rambla and yet in a quiet square.

About the Host, Esculapi
I was born and grew up in Barcelona and, after living in several European countries for a few years, came back to this town. Maybe because I became sure it is the one that fits best for me.
I hope to be able to host you and you to discover the city, at least for a few days.
These apartments are in what I consider the best locations in town to provide you with the best Barcelona experience. These apartments were picked in the most quiet and peaceful downtown spots, walking distance to the main attractions and happenings in the city.
Hope that if this is your choice, it will satisfy you.
See you around!
