Welcome to Barcelona!
This beautiful traditional apartment is located in the center of the Catalan capital. The area around the apartment is mostly pedestrian as it is in the heart of the Gothic district where you can find the coolest and cutest shops and the best bars of Barcelona. Of course, there are a lot of good restaurants, pubs and cafes, as well.
And... a supermarket just in the corner of the building.
The Gothic Cathedral of Barcelona is just 3 minutes away. The Gothic quarter is also full of great shops, food stores, restaurants, bars, tea places and theaters and it is extremely close to La Rambla and Plaza Catalunya. In this part you can visit the Boqueria market where you can buy y fresh fruits and veggies and at the Santa Caterina market too which is just 3 minutes away from the apartment.
If you walk about 2 minutes you will feel the breeze of the sea..and you will find the Port Vell full of boats in 2 minutes more.

Esther is a lovely host - gives you space to do your own thing, but also very happy to answer any questions and point you in the right direction.
The room is lovely and simple with a place to hang your things should you wish and the bed is oh so comfortable :)
Location couldn't be any better if you want to experience old Barcelona and walk the streets of Barri Gotic and El Born. You're also a stone's throw away from La Ramblas and Place Rial with cool bars and places to eat.
I'm already planning coming back to this beautiful city and will definitely be staying at Esther's again on my next trip!
Auberge espagnole sans l'ambiance. Dommage.
Esther is a very friendly host. The room was silent and clean. As the flat is situated in one of the fanciest areas of barcelona we really enjoyed our stay! We recommend the flat of esther!
Nous avons passés une semaine chez Esther avec ma femme. A part la localisation très centrale de l appartement je dois dire que rien ne donne envie d y rester.
La chambre est sale et e mauvais état, quand a la salle de bain nous avons vu mieux dans des campings bas de gamme, c est tout simplement dégueulasse! La cuisine est du même acabit grasse et en très mauvais etat.
de plus nous avons donné 20 euros pour le soi disant ménage.
Nous ne recommandons absolument pas cette adresse.
Excellent location, in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, it's where you want to be! Esther was a great host. Room was pretty comfy, a little warm at night but there was a fan available to use. Shared bathroom worked quite well. Bedroom could have been a little cleaner (dusty floor). Well equipped kitchen, which we didn't use but we did make use of the washing machine which Esther was very helpful with. Great value for money stay in the heart of Barcelona!
Esther was very a welcoming and helpful host. During our stay we asked for eating suggestions, a fan for the room, and a good map all of which she readily provided. We were also allowed some space in the kitchen which was very nice to have.
Overall, the room was good, though a little small. The room was hot at night since we wanted privacy (we had to close the window for privacy), but we left the window open during the day and the room cooled down a bit. There was no closet in the room, but there were about 10 hangers which my boyfriend and I shared.
My one complaint is the bathroom: the bathtub had very poor drainage so after one or two people showering, there was a full tub of dirty water. This was not very pleasant, so we tried to shower at night or earlier in the morning before the other guests showered. As a result of the standing water, the bathroom floor got really dirty throughout the day.
If you want to experience what it would be like to live in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter then Esther's apartment is the place for you. The building itself is very cool - tones of character - as is the apartment itself. The location is convenient, close to La Rambla but far enough to avoid the tourists. Everything is close at hand here - tapas bars, restaurants, the beach, metro, supermarket, even a good laundry.
If you are used to hotel luxuries then best to stick to a hotel. We loved the apartment for its character, charm and 'cool' but had to learn to adapt, as this felt like staying at a friend's place when your friend is out of town.
Nous avons passé un week end chez Esther le 20 juin 2013. Globalement, nous avons été assez déçues. L'accueil a été plutôt cordial, limite désagréable. La chambre quant à elle était (website hidden) premier abord, elle semblait en assez bon état, mais à y regarder de plus près, elle était très sale (draps tachés).
Je ne recommanderai pas à un ami de passer le we là bas.
Central location makes this a good option for your stay in Barcelona. Five minute walk from Las Ramblas and close to a great variety of restaurants and bars. Esther's directions are great and got us right to the door without any trouble. Our room was a little small and it might not suit for a longer stay as the available space made any kind of storage difficult and so unpacking bags was not a real option.
Erg minimalistisch, als je niks wenst kun je hier goed terecht, natuurlijk is de prijs er ook na. De plek is geweldig goed in de stad,
je auto parkeren kost meer de kamer die je huurt.
