This three bedroom flat is located in the central Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona with a unique location across from the recently rebuilt Mercat de Santa Caterina. This market is not only a recent addition to the body of architectural landmarks in the city, but a place to sample top quality local produce. The flat is on the corner of a building with a protected façade as an important part of architectural history.
The location is just a short walk from the fashionable El Born area including one of the most exciting tourist attractions in the city: the Museu Picasso and the Palau de la Música Catalana, a leading concert hall - World Heritage Site by UNESCO -. Walking to the Barri Gotic is a quick affair and the famous street of Las Ramblas is just 10 min. away on foot. Most of the city's main attractions (including the Gaudí works of Palau Guell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milá and La Sagrada Familia) and relaxing beaches are within walking distance or a short subway ride away.

Great apartment in an amazing location. The area is safe, close to a great market and to to the major tourist and entertainment destinations. The host was really nice too, our flight was delayed, but she had no problem with it and waited till we arrived. There is internet in the flat which was important for us. We had a great stay here and would definitely recommend it and return.
Lovely apartment in old Barcelona

The Flor de Lliri apartment was lovely. It was better than advertised. We found it to be quite roomy, close to everything, clean and comfortable. The laundry facilities were a definite bonus. The street was reasonably quiet for the area. The only complaint that I could make would be that the cleaner should have left more rolls of paper and a small bar of soap would have been appreciated. We would definitely recommend this vacation rental for those wishing to explore Barcelona. Finally, we found your service to be exceptional, very accommodating to our travel schedule and considerate. Thank you!

Our family--grandparents, parents and children ages 9 and 12--stayed in this apartment for three days in July 2011. We found the apartment to be perfect for us. We were able to leave our luggage, pick-up the key and begin our exploration of Barcelona while the apartment was being cleaned. Which was great, since we'd had to leave our cruise ship at 9 am that morning. The location was perfect for us, just a short walk to Via Laetana where we caught the Bus Turistic to begin our exploration of Barcelona that morning. When we returned later in the day, the apartment was clean and ready for us. Although it was a Sunday and the Mercat Catalina was closed, there was a shop selling foodstuffs just around the corner so we were able to pick-up some food for an early dinner. And, around another corner, there was a Ben and Jerry's ice cream shop. In fact, it's just a short walk from this apartment to many shops and sights, some that you will be looking for and some that will be a complete and pleasant surprise. The apartment itself, was clean, comfortable and contained two really important things for summer residents...a washer and dryer and air conditioning. The pictures we saw on the site were accurate and the owners and their representative were totally helpful. For our family, ihis apartment was perfect--in the right location and at the right price. We definitely recommend it. Staying here, you will surely experience much of the best of Barcelona.

Family of four staying in Barcelona pre-cruise. The apartment was spacious enough that we weren't tripping over each other, and the proximity to the market was fantastic! There were plenty of places to eat (would highly recomend Arcano), and we felt perfectly safe walking back to the apartment after dark while eating our nightly gelato. Our kids are 3 and 7, and this area was perfect for them. Within walking distance of the aquarium and the beach, and a short metro ride to the Zoo. For as large as Barcelona is, it is an easy town to get around in, and being in this central location was very helpful. The apartment was clean and cozy, and we loved to open the windows and just listen to the sounds around us. We weren't bothered by noise from the market, and even weekend nights were quiet. I would highly recomend this apartment to anyone who likes to get out and explore the town!!

My wife and I stayed here for just over a week in late May, and were amazed daily by how great it was to have an apartment instead of a hotel room. In addition to that, the apartment is located in the heart of the Old City, which is romantic and visually stunning. You are minutes away from the beaches, parks, La Rambla, Some of the Gaudi architecture, the Picasso museum, and a number of beautiful old government buildings, art galleries, trendy restaurants that the locals eat at, and squares where you can enjoy some shade and people watching. Oh, and there's a giant market of local seafood, produce, cheeses, etc located 30 seconds walk north as well as a grocery store where you can stock the fridge for your stay. The owners of the apartment are EXTREMELY helpful, friendly, and invested in the enjoyment of your vacation. The sat with us to go over some hidden gems on a map, and also provide you with a whole bookshelf of maps, guide books, coupon collections and business cards to help you find what you're looking for while you're in Barcelona. This was our first time renting an apartment, and it's exactly what we'll do every time, from now on.
Fantastic central apartment
Guest: sue (sydney)
Date of Stay: 01/04/11 Review Submitted: 02/01/11
We loved this apartment. The location was excellent with great access to the food markets and the old part of town. The three bedrooms were excellent for our family of 5 and we loved the balconies. Once we worked out how to use the hot water in the shower everything was extremely enjoyable. The apartment is clean and beautifully renovated. Jacob met us with the key and was very helpful with lots of information. I also corresponded many times with Elizabeth who patiently answered all my questions. They were very easy to deal with. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful week. Sue from Australia.
We spent a wonderful 10 days in this well-located apartment

My wife and I, along with our son spent 10 days in Barcelona visiting our daughter, who is doing a semester abroad. I was impressed with the great location and acess to the heart of Barcelona from this location. The apartment is very clean and the kitchen and bathroom have been nicely modernized--we were even able to cook a Thanksgiving dinner! The owners were very helpful and easy to work with.

We went two couples to stay in central Barcelona. This flat located by the charming Santa Caterina market was perfect for our purpose! We were basically close to "everything" and the flat was clean, practical and tranquil. The owners were very helpful throughout the whole process, from booking to leaving the flat (too early!) to go home. We loved Barcelona and the opportunity to shop at the market and prepare food in the nice surroundings of "our" flat!
Family friendly with great location!

Lovely flat opposite the marvellous Santa Caterina market in the Barcelona Old Town. We were very well received by the owner who gave us a lot of good info about the area and the city. We truly enjoyed walking around in the neighbourhood, particulary the nearby El Born with its medieval charm as well as good shopping, and eating!
- No smoking in the apartment please
- The kitchens are of course available for your use, please be safe.
- Reasonable quiet noise levels especially after 21pm.
- Respect of the property and neighbours.
- No loud parties.
- With the hot weather we would really appreciate if you could clean down kitchen surfaces at least once a day (only if used) and bring out the garbage at least every second day. This is necessary in the hot weather, thank you! The garbage bins are located very close to your apartment - near the main front door. They are the big grey plastic containers - you can't miss them! Cheers!
- Most importantly relax and enjoy your stay!
RESPECT FOR NEIGHBOURS. As the apartment is very quiet, for the centre of Barcelona, or any part of Barcelona, for that matter, I ask visitors to be mindful of noise levels.
- Cleaning fee of 60€ euros to be paid on arrival.
- There is 150€ security deposit hold with credit card.
- Late check in (21h to 9h) has an additional fee of 35€.
