About This Listing
Cute and cozy loft in the heart of the Gothic Quarters.
All the lofts in this catalogued historic building (known to have been an antique convent in the 13th century) have been individually redesigned and decorated, no two lofts are alike.The renovation has been carefully done, respecting the original architecture, to expose the handmade wood beams and the stone walls and bringing to light their Gothic period features.
This unique loft with one-of-a-kind views of The Lieutenant's Palace was just renovated in June of 2012. It is situated on the third floor of a true Gothic building (sorry no Lift/Elevator).The loft has been tastefully decorated with loft-style-chic furniture. The original mural painting inside the bedchamber dates to the early 1900`s. The flat is equipped with a flat-screen television and Ipod dock with speaker. Original artwork is provided by Professional LART. This quaint loft is great for couples or families of 4 that want to be right in the center of the gothic quarters.

Situated in the heart of the vibrant Gothic District, right behind Barcelona´s Cathedral, the location of this apartment is ideal. You are a stone´s throw away from all the main attractions such as Plaza Sant Jaume , Las Ramblas, Port Vell, Born District and Plaza Catalunya .This apartment is located in a street restricted to automobile traffic. There is no location like it anywhere else in Barcelona. Also, please note that we are right in back of the cathedral and the bells do ring every 15 minutes, even at night!!!
A 2 minute walk will place you right in the L4 metro line which easily connects you to all the other main features of Barcelona such as La Sagrada Familia, Paseo de Gracia with all of Gaudi´s Buildings and high-end shops.
Other Things to Note
Please note once again that there is NO LIFT.
This is the Gothic, so noise is part of it, and the bells do ring even at night!

Had a fantastic stay in Kelly's beautiful loft. We were greeted by lovely Baadai who showed us to the loft and helped with our cases and we were presented with wine and water on our arrival. Loft was super clean and well equipped. The best thing about the apartment was the superb location. Would definitely want to return! Thanks Kelly and Baadai!
This is an all-round great apartment. We stayed for three nights on our first trip to Barcleona and couldn't have asked for a better base - fabulous location, clean and comfortable. Cannot recommend Kelly's apartment enough!
The apartment was perfect for us (2 adults+2 kids),
Just the right size, all bright-clean, good coffee maker, and a bottle of wine to start :-)
The location is perfect,
all the question and requests were answered immediately.
I'm sure the other apartments are as perfect.
My son and I spent a great time at Kelly' s cute, perfectly clean and well equipped loft!
The welcoming was very friendly !
The location us just PERFECT!!
We surely will book this loft again.
Thanks a lot , Kelly!:)
This was the perfect space to stay in Barcelona. Very clean and comfortable. Kelly's employee Baadai was friendly and accommodating and was easy to meet at the appointed time and place. The area is quite busy but with the windows closed the noise of the hustle and bustle below isn't bad at all. Check out time was a bit earlier than expected due to a miscommunication with Kelly, but otherwise everything was fantastic. This is an excellent base for exploring the city. I would recommend staying here to friends!
Kelly's little loft is a perfect hideaway for those who want to discover every inch of Barcelona's center. Located right next to the cathedral it offers a look out over all the tourists swarming around it.
Perhaps a little personal touch wouldn't hurt to make the appartment a little more cosy to stay in, but all together it was a pleasant experience staying here.
Kelly's apartment was just as it appeared in the pictures. Extremely clean and inviting. Kelly's assistant Badaei met me at the apartment and assisted with my bags.
The apartment is is a fantastic location, very central in the Gothic Qtr, and despite is being so close to the Cathedral the windows blocked out any outside noise.
Kelly had a very helpful booklet on Barcelona, where to eat, drink, transport, etc. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kelly's apartment for your stay in Barcelona.
Thanks Kelly & Badaei!
