About this listing
Fabulous Penthouse Suite with private terrace in the very heart of the GOTHIC QUARTER in Barcelona (4th floor with elevator).

There is a Starbucks at the corner.
The Room features a huge Kingsize bed (160cm x 200cm), airconditioning and your own private access to the Terrace.
Modern bathroom with bathtub and shower.
I will provide you with clean bedsheets, fresh towels, bottled water and juices for the mornings.
Vince made us feel very welcome in his lovely home; the penthouse is so central and only a 10 minute walk to the beach and loads of great restaurants. Vince was very helpful when we wanted to know where to go for dinner or how to catch the metro around the city. The roof terrace is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for sunbathing or enjoying some drinks in the evening. Barcelona as a whole is just amazing so all in all we had an unbelievable stay - thanks Vince!
Absolute perfect. Location is incredibly central, rooftop unbelievably beautiful and the hosts were awesome and friendly.
Prior to the trip i sent Vincent a quick message asking for directions and timings. He response was ideal with great help on how to find the flat with landmarks ect.
The flat is bang in the middle of tourist hub las ramblas, 20 mins walk from the beach and 10 minutes from el bourne (the old town). Never far away from restaurants and bars.
Vincent and partner Julio were extremely friendly and helpful, always offering us beer and wine on the rooftop.
The room offers its own access to the terrace and has a massive king size bed. Overall, perfect for a romantic trip with my girlfriend. Cannot recommend it enough.
Amazing central location and lovely hosts. Feel's like you're staying at a friends house, very friendly, clean and welcoming. Would reccomend for a getaway trip to the amazing city of Barcelona!
Vince & Julio where fab hosts, their apartment is beautiful and well located in the gothic quarter. The roof top terrace is a little bit of tranquility in the busy city. Would def recommend and stay here again - lovely boys :) x
My fiancé and I stayed at Vince's apartment and it was even more beautiful than in the photos. They're perfect hosts, so helpful and friendly, they make you feel very welcome. The apartment is in the perfect location, close to everything and a metro station. They also have the most adorable little dog (who was the hardest thing to leave in Barcelona!). Would definitely stay again.
Accueil très sympa de Vincent qui nous a fait partager certaines de ses passions (Son petit chien, son drone, sa terrasse, ...). Vince a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable. Les photos de la chambre sont tout à fait fidèle. Les plus de cette location sont la décoration du logement, l'extrême propreté, la situation en plein Bario Gotico (Plaza Real, La Boqueria, Las Ramblas, Puerto viejo, Catedral, ...) la terrasse et la sympathie de Vince.
Vince and his partner, Julio, were most welcoming and helpful throughout our stay with them. They have a lovely apartment, very centrally located, and well described in the information we were provided before making our agreement to stay with them.
As indicated, their apartment is very small and the bathroom is shared. The bedroom is essentially a bed, but what a bed! Very comfortable. The private entrance to their terrace, which overlooks the old part of the city, allows easy access and the terrace is lovely. The terrace is shared as well, but Vince and Julio allow ample privacy, as they do throughout the living space.
One feature that we were informed about only just before our visit is that the couple have recently acquired a small dog: a chihuahua. While the dog is sweet and very playful, this might be a problem for some guests, especially those with allergies. It was not a problem for us, since we are dog lovers.
Vince and Julio are generous and warm people. Not a night went by without an offer of tea or wine, and we enjoyed our conversations (though Julio's English is limited). Vince was always willing to help us in our planning and we enjoyed our interactions with him.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone not troubled by the intimacy of the setting, the relative lack of space in the bedroom, and the presence of a dog.
