The Space

The Universitat apartment, is a brand new completely refurbished apartment located on the 4rd floor of a building with an elevator by the corner of Plaza Universitat, a location second to none at the edge of the Gothic Area, the Raval and the Eixample, allowing you to discover and explore the best of each of these neighborhoods and a mere 3-4 minute walk from the Plaza Catalunya, the most central point where you can get from the aiport by public transport whether the train or the airbus.

This wonderful four bedroom apartment comfortably sleeps eight guests, and is ideal for a large family or a group of friends visiting Barcelona. with a surface of 970 ft2 consist of 4 double bedrooms, all exterior with ample wardrobe spaces and comfortable beds with leather and wood headboards. Two of the bedrooms are exterior to the street and the other two ones exterior to the inner patios. 3 of the bedrooms have queen size beds and the biggest bedroom has two twin size single beds.
Each room comes with AC/heat depending on what time of the year you are choosing to visit Barcelona
The apartment comes complete with fresh linens and towels ready for use on your arrival.
The kitchen in this great apartment is complete with all the mod cons that you would expect in an apartment of this quality making it a pleasure to prepare a meal using fresh products bought at the local market.
There is one bathroom with a shower, washbasin and toilet.

The living room of this apartment has a comfortable sofas and a table to sit six people is the perfect place to sit back and relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the TV, DVD or listen to music after being struggling Barcelona.

If you are travelling with a baby/small children, a cot, high-chair, bath, toys, changing mat, baby plates and children's films can all be provided at no extra cost. A babysitter can also be arranged with prior notice.

This apartment will make your trip to Barcelona a memorable one.

The kitchen has been equipped for self-catering purposes, and all the bed linens and towels are provided.
I also provide hand soap and toilet paper. There is FREE WIFI, TV with satellite channels (mostly Spanish TV though)

The apartments is located in a pedestrian street, in the coolest area of Barcelona, the most typical and underground district: the Raval.
The neighborhood is safe and secure with plenty of fusion restaurants, bars, pubs and very nice shops and supermarket just in front of the building. There are also a lot of Art Galleries and museum, like MACBA, (the modern art moseum) is just 4 min walking.

It's next to "Barrio Gotico", Plaza Catalunya and Paseo de Gracia (Gaudi houses) where you can find the biggest and the best shops of the city and more.
By the corner of the apartment there is a metro station and a bus station (plaza Universidad).
You can reach La Sagrada Familia and the beach by walking 20 minutes or by metro (3 metro stations)

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Stayed with 7 friends over the period of this years Primavera festival. Apartment is spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Great location- be sure to check out the excellent cocktail bar Boadas at the end of the street. Horatio was a great host and gave us some super tips of places to go, see and eat and was quick to help us out with any issues we had.

    There is only one bathroom so wasn't ideal for getting washed and ready in the morning for all 8 of us so not the best if there are lots of you staying. Blackout shutters in the bedrooms means there is no noise from outside at all at night.

    Great surrounding area with fantastic places to eat.Taxi rank close by and metro right at the front door. Would definitely recommend this location.

  • Perfectly located, great rooms, very clean and comfortable. Horacio is a great guy, offered us good advice on the city and was very flexible with check in / check out. Highly recommended.

  • The apartment is very nice and centrally located - an ideal jumping-off point for exploring Barcelona. However, there is a lot of noise from partyfolk in the narrow street all night which makes sleep a challenge. During our stay there was considerable bad odor from a broken drain in the apartment above. We were told that this will be fixed. The apartment is probably convenient for young people who enjoy the nightlife but not recommended for families.

    Response from Horacio:

    Dear Adrian,
    thanks again for booking my apartment and taking the time to write a review. I am happy to tell you that we have been able to repair the drain on the above apartment and I wish you were not bother by the street noise.
    Most of my guests considered a very quiet apartment but due to being so central occasionally could be some street noise considering there are so many universities around and people going out on the weekends.

    Thanks again, and my sincere apologies, Best regards Horacio

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Horacio´s appartment. It was clean, had a lot of room and was just in the middle of everything close to Plaza Universidad and Plaza Catalunia. We liked the neighbourhood with bars, shops and restaurants in walking distance. We definitely recommend this appartment and we will be there next time in Barcelona for sure. Horacio was very helpful and gave us a lot of good tips for sightseeing and going out, Thanks!!

    Unser Aufenthalt in Horacio´s Wohnung war einfach super. Es war sauber, geräumig (wie in der Beschreibung) und lag absolut zentral in der Nähe vom Plaza Universidad und Plaza Catalunia. Das Viertel war sehr nett mit vielen Bars, Kneipen, Geschäften und Restaurants direkt um die Ecke. Wir können die Wohnung 100% empfehlen und werden nächstesmal sicherlich wieder dorthin gehen. Übrigens ist die Wohnung auch gut für Familien mit Kindern geeignet und ist durch den Aufzug auch bequem erreichbar! Horacio war sehr zuvorkommend und hat uns viele hilfreiche Tipps zu Barcelona gegeben, vielen Dank für alles!

  • We enjoyed our visit to Barcelona. This apartment is very well maintained with lots of space and is located in a great area. We started every morning with a trip to local markets, bakeries and butchers. Easy access from the airport via bus or train. Easy walk to LaRambla. Stayed for 8 nights and would have loved to have stayed longer. Horatio was responsive to any requests or questions we had.

  • Horacio is a great host and his apartment was amazing! The location was perfect, when I go back to Barcelona I will definitely try to rent the apartment again!

    January 2014
  • Horacio was the best host! Always responded very quickly and a pleasure to meet in person. The apartment was amazing! 4 big double beds in a newly renovated apartment. Everything about the apartment was designed for easy living, the kitchen is massive, the bathroom very clean and the living room with a balcony was an awesome place to chill out when resting up from the city.

    In terms of location it was so close to everything. I dont think we could have found a better spot. It was located on the edge of Raval at Plaza Universitat. We felt like locals as it wasnt in the popular tourist location near Las Ramblas. A convenience store 10m away from the front door and a famous NOSTRUM next door too.

    Will DEFINITELY rent again when we come back!

    Response from Horacio:

    Dear Samuel,
    thank so much for your positive review and for being such a friendly and kind guest, I would be delighted you host you again if you ever visit Barcelona.

    I also love this apartment being in the border of different neighbourhoods such as el Raval with the splendid Barcelona contemporary art museum Macba and the CCCB Center of Contemporary Culture and also the heart of the Eixample, with Ramblas Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia a mere 5 minutes walking where you may enjoy Gaudí´s most famous masterpicies such as La Pedrera and Casa Batllo.

    Hasta pronto!!!!
