Located on a quiet street, in a spacious apartment which boasts lovely period features, the Cute Suite sleeps 2. It's just 3 blocks from Las Ramblas, and in the surrounding area you'll find yummie restaurants and cafes, as well as shops and museums.
A cosy, quiet bedroom with a queen size bed (1.40m x 2.00m) and a wardrobe to store your garments, plus a small sitting/study room with a writing desk and set of table and chairs.
It is superbly located on a quiet pedestrian street in a beautiful part of the Old Town, at a stone's throw from Las Ramblas.
Suitable both for couples or single users.
Clean bedding and towels are provided.
Gay and straight friendly.
The apartment is a spacious 3rd floor walk-up (NO LIFT!!) in a historical building that was constructed in 1910. The exterior was recently restored beautifully and the building is well maintained.
You are welcome to join me in the lounge and make use of the dining room.
WiFi internet is available at no extra cost, for use with your own computer, tablet or smart phone.
Shared, spacious bathroom with shower and ample storage space for your products. The WC is separate.
You are welcome to make your own breakfast or snacks in the kitchen, although there are cool cafes just doors away that serve good coffee and yummie food - I'll be more than happy to direct you to the best ones.
If you are staying at the Cute Suite for more than 10 days I will happily do your laundry for you. Not staying that long and need to wash your clothes? There is a laundromat just one street away. I'll gladly point you in the right direction!
FEEL AT HOME
My guests are welcome to come and go as they please and are given a set of keys, so they can do just that.
If you fancy a chat, want information or need recommendations, then please feel free to let me know. I love Barcelona and know my way around, so I'm sure I'll be able to offer some suggestions!
I am a sociable person and like getting to know my guests. But I am also very good at giving you lots of space and will leave the amount of contact you wish to have up to you.
The Raval is mostly a warren of small streets and multicultural inhabitants, but there is an area, close to Plaça Catalunya, that is tranquil, residential, leafy, beautiful and very pleasant. It was built in the Ensanche style and has a relaxed ambience, numerous cafe terraces and delicious restaurants. Cute shops abound and the MACBA and CCCB are practically around the corner.
The Cute Suite is in a very central location, so most tourist attractions are within walking distance. If you want to go a little further afield and don't like walking so much, there are heaps of options available in the form of public transport, including bike rentals, metro, buses and of course (inexpensive) taxis. The harbour is a short taxi-ride away (or a 20 min walk), so this location is also very convenient for 'pre/post-cruise-ship' accommodation.
Should you have a car, there are several underground Car Parks close by.
Let me know how you are arriving and I will provide you with the quickest and most cost-effective and comfortable route to your home away from home. I look forward to welcoming you here soon!
Filled with character and authentic details, such as the traditionally Catalan mosaic floors and moldings on the high ceilings, my home is slowly being restored. I do this myself (mostly), bit by bit.
Don't let this put you off! I don't DIY all the time - far from it - plus, I live here myself, and I keep it clean and tidy, even if certain areas are a work in progress...
During your stay I will try not to bother you with dust or noise, and if works are on-going I will be sure to let you know in advance. In any event, your rooms, as well as the kitchen and bathroom are in full working order and freshly painted.
Lisette was very welcoming and helpful host. Her amazing apartment is very nice and full of character. It is in central location. The guest room is made of up two rooms, very comfortable, providing privacy within the apartment.
Notre séjour Al Raval a été très agréable, l'accueil chaleureux et la disponibilité de Lisette y sont pour beaucoup !
La position centrale de l'appartement nous a permis de rentrer nous reposer au calme avant de repartir découvrir d'autres quartiers, musées...
Adresse à retenir !
I was staying in the Cute Suite with Lisette for nearly 2 1/2 weeks.
I had a wonderful time. The place is great and has a very good and original atmonsphere. Besides is wide, airy, quite and very clean.
Lisette is always there for you if you need anything, if you have a question or problem.
I would always stay there again.
Had a great stay with Lisette, the location was perfect and Lisette was so helpful with information. Enjoyed our short stay.
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay at Lisette's! The place is super airy, quiet, and probably in the best location in Barcelona. Lisette was really helpful, responsive, and fun.
The only tiny room for improvement was that the bed had some springs poking into my ribs. Sleeping on top of the comforter increased the comfort factor for sure. (I'm sure our jet lag and Cava hangover didn't help our sleep patterns!) We let Lisette know about the bed and I'm sure by the time you read this it won't even be an issue.
Honestly, I would stay here again even if I had to sleep on a bed of nails! Invaluable host and amazing location.
Ik heb hier met veel plezier overnacht. Het betreft een mooie kamer in een mooi appartement en de ligging is perfect, dicht bij het centrum. In de buurt zijn leuke eetgelegenheden. Wij hebben het hier helemaal naar onze zin gehad en hopen nog eens terug te komen.
top location right in the middle of Raval, which became my favourite, close to public transport (plaça catalunya) and surrounded by very nice neighbourhoods. Very charming apartment, quiet room and very clean. Lisette is a great help with any kind of question and knows a great deal about the local hot spots. Highly recommended!
Wow.... what a wonderful and relaxed location! Lisette was more correct with us, the room big enough, and the rest of the house gave me also a good feeling. I want to keep this a secret!
I now have a new nr.1 place for Barcelona.
Cute Suite felt perfect for me and my daughter. A comfortable appartment with Lisette as a very kind and easy-going host who happens to be a Barcelona-expert with very good advice about where to go, have lunch and dinner etc... The quiet street in a vivid neighbourhood near the Rambla was an ideal starting point for beautiful strolls to any of our preferred destinations (Museums of Miró, MACBA, Picasso, Casa Milá, harbour, shopping streets) and we only took public transport for Parc Guëll & Sagrada Familia. A place to return to!
We spent 4 nights in Lisette's apartment...everything was good, really clean and quiet!
The Raval is a perfect district to live the city and visit the most important sites!
Lisette is a person reseved and very helpfull... We recommend this Cute Suite to all the people who want to live in the best way the beautiful atmosphere of Barcelona!
