Clean and spacious double with room with a lot of sun ,for rent in the heart of the gothic quarter in a private apartment. All the rooms have a big window. We are a couple living here , both of us are visual artists, working with photography, video end graphic design. We rent out 2-3 rooms for tourists, cause our flat is super big, so still we live quite separately. There are 2 bathrooms, and a kitchen where you can make your breakfast, tea or cafe anytime, but not cook please! We are at a very good location, surrounded by bars, restaurants, cool shops, small and big squares, close to the sea!
It is 3 minutes walk to the Rambla, 2 minutes to the Plaza Reial, 5 minutes to the Port Vell, 10 minutes to the Gothic Cathedral, two different metro lines just 5 minutes walk away as well. The flat has a unique atmosphere, typical old Barcelona style, top floor . We are on the 4th floor without elevator! If you are looking for a party place please search for an other place, we are looking for relaxed people.WIFI, towels, bedsheets, morning cafe or tea are included. Possibility for breakfast.
Prior to booking, please send a message with a short presentation of yourselves, what do you do, for how long are you coming. Just a few words, that you would like to know from a stranger that you were about to take home with you.
We look forward to meeting you very soon!

quartier très sympa, Barcelona est une ville très sympa. La chambre était bien , propre .
Great location, had a great stay. The stairs were many but we did know about them when we booked.
We stayed at Bori's and Karol's apartment for 3 nights in mid September 2013. The place is pretty well located just a few footsteps away from the busy Rambla. Communication with Bori before our arrival was always quick and friendly and we were greeted with a very warm welcome which was nice. The room is like a typical room in this area: nothing fancy but with a certain charm from the old days of Barcelona. We felt quite comfortable! One thing that did annoy us though was the noise from the streets. The big fiesta Mercé was going on during our stay and the streets were full of people even late at night making it hard to sleep. However, Bori and Karol provided earplugs free of charge which saved us quite a few hours sleeplessness. Karol even apologized for the noise. So if you do get to Barcelona, don't forget your earplugs or ask Bori for a pair! Overall great experience though. If you are looking for a central place right in the old town you shouldn't wait with your booking! :-)
Great place and very nice hosts! I will definately recommend Bori and Carols place to anyone, who wants to stay in the very center of the nice Gothic area.
Be aware, that you share kitchen with 4 rooms and the hosts. On the other hand, this gives the oppertunity of meeting others. If you prefer privacy, you may look for another place, but difficult to find a better location.
200 meters from Placa Reial.
Room was OK, nothing special.
Large living room.
Bathroom is old.
Right in the centre of the Barrio Gotico. Perfect location for everybody who wants to explore Barcelona by foot. Bori and Karol have been on vacation but had a friend who let us in. The appartment is really huge and exactly as you can see it in the pictures. With open windows it could be a bit loud during the nights because it's so close to bars, cafes, resaurants and La Rambla. Overall we had a nice stay in this flat.
A great location in the heart of Barcelona, conveniently tucked away down a small street, so quiet enough to dream through the night. I love climbing stairs, but for those less inclined, I at least recommend limited baggage for your stay. Bori and Karol also provide a website with recommendations for places to go in the area, a nice touch for tourists looking for local experiences.
Een sterk punt van het huis van Bori en Karol is de ligging. Midden in het sfeervolle oude centrum, vlakbij de Rambla, en op loopafstand van het aantrekkelijke havengebied.
Bori en Karol zijn vriendelijk en behulpzaam; wij hadden een heel prettig verblijf hier. Fijn was ook dat we de keuken mochten gebruiken voor het ontbijt. Kortom: Barcelona is ons zeer goed bevallen.
De eerlijkheid gebiedt wel om te zeggen dat het straatje 's nachts vrij rumoerig is. Ook zou de kamer die wij hadden enige investering kunnen gebruiken (bijv. een nieuw bed). Niettemin zou ik een volgende keer meteen weer bij hen willen boeken!
Bori and Karol were great hosts!
They gave us great advice on where to go in the city. Their place was nice and clean.
Todo estuvo muy bien.
