The area surrounding the apartment;
The Universitat apartment is located right in the middle of Barcelona city only a 150 meters from Plaça Catalunya and Las Ramblas, making it accessible to all areas of interest in Barcelona such as the Gothic Quarter, and the very trendy El Borne. At walking from the apartment you will find the superb food and produce market called La Boqueria on Las Ramblas, an absolute must for any visitor to Barcelona.
Walk out the front door of the apartment building and you have a shopping experience just waiting to happen all around you. Paseo de Gracia, about 3 mins walk, alone will keep you busy for hours. Here you will also find Gaudi's famous masterpieces La Pedrera and Casa Batllo. Walk to Portal d'Angel and continue down to Portaferrisa where there are more stores for you to explore. A short 5-10 min walk will take you into El Borne one of of Barcelona's oldest neighbourhoods, an intricate maze of plaças and squares all interconnected by narrow, medieval streets where you will find lots of trendy boutiques and great bars, cafes and restaurants. Another option for the visitor staying at this great Barcelona apartment is to visit the Gothic quarter situated right in the heart of the old town, about a 8-10 mins walk from your front door. The area is a body of interconnecting narrow, cobble stoned streets where you can potter around for hours and explore the shops and restaurants.
Las Ramblas is another must for the visitor in Barcelona where the famous "La Boqueria" market is, an 8 minute stroll to Las Ramblas from your front door, where you will be amused and entertained by all the street acts as you make your way down to the market.
Excellent public transportation around (Metro, buses and taxi).
The best way to discover a city like Barcelona is by walk!

Horacio was on holiday so we were met by his associate Sandrine. She called us at the airport and met us at the taxi and helped us with our bags. She showed us all the facilities in the apartment.
Horacio also arranged a high chair for our baby and bought him a little toy!
The apartment was in a very convenient location and was easy to get to the main sights. Also very close to the metro.
We had a comfortable stay. There was an issue with the hot water supply being a little temperamental but Horacio is getting that sorted.
Thanks Horacio & Sandrine for everything!
L'arrivée a été un tout petit peu stressante car je n'avais jamais reçu le e-mail m'informant de l'adresse détaillée de l'appartement. Je me suis donc présentée à l'endroit qui m'avait été indiqué, fort heureusement à proximité de la destination, et j'ai finalement été contactée via SMS par Tania qui m'attendait à l'appartement et qui m'a transmis les informations nécessaires pour mon séjour.
L'appartement était conforme à la description et aux photos ainsi que l'environnement immédiat. En guise d'accueil, une bouteille de vin rouge fort appréciée!
Très accueillant et sympathique.
Logement conforme aux photos, aucune surprise, très propre, confortable et très bien placé.
Serviettes, draps, sèche cheveux, fer à repasser, gel douche... Nickel
There were some basic things provided such as tea/coffee/olive oil which is very helpful. The description of the apartment matches everything about the apartment itself. The location could not be better. It's right in the centre of Barcelona near everything you want to be near including the metro should you wish to head anywhere outside of Barcelona.
Thanks to horacio, his apartment is so nice and comfortable,me, my wife and our children had a great stay . near by Plaza catalunya and in front of the metro, with a market in front of the building always open. We' ve been a bit unlucky with neighbours ..... Loud music and noise on stairs in the very late night is not so good for a family with kids, once they rang our inter phone at 4.30 am!!! But we have been young too so we understand....in any case horacio is very kind and let us find fruits & ham @ our arrival the first night we arrived + milk for our little boy... He appreciated a lot!!
Hope to come back soon !!
Dear Sergio and family it was a great pleasure to host you and meet you and you are always welcome.
We normally have mature and very respectful people and the Italian group of teenagers apologized for the disturbances and promised this would not happen again.
See you soon, arrivederci Horacio
The apartment was perfect for my family of four, immaculate, fully equipped, perfect location. Horacio has been very receptive to our requests and provided a lot of useful tips to enjoy Barcelona. Absolutely recommended!
We stayed over five weeks in Horacio’s apartment. It was marvelous. Great location and great apartment: right between the old city and the new city (Eixample), every weekend some activity was occurring on the plaza, only a few blocks from the Ramblas and Piazza Catalunya. The furnishings were comfortable and stylish. And Horacio immediately took care of the few problems we noticed when we moved in. It was beyond our expectations.
Thank you Horacio!
