Other Things to Note
You'll have the place entirely to yourself so make yourself at home!
I hope you will enjoy the apartment and treat my home like your home.
Please no smoking inside (on the patio is OK) and no pets (€250 penalty applies).
Please also no parties so you don't disturb the neighbours.
P.S. Barcelona has some funny rules about subletting room, if asked by the neighbors please just tell them that you are a friend of mine, thanks :-)
Great unique apartment in an interesting part of the city. Great experience. And Damien and his team were very communicative and welcoming. Highly recommend.
Damien was very friendly and helpful upon our arrival to the flat. The keys are conveniently located in GoCar Tour shop right down the street from the apartment. The location is perfect and within easy access to all that the Born / Gothic quarters have to offer. The flat is good sized and what I would consider budget accommodations. As long as your expectations are in line with the rental price you will have no issues.
The pictures are accurate and the place was nice with a comfortable bed. The only detractors were that it was hard to find and the shower desperately needs to be fixed. Overall I liked the apartment.
We were disappointed with this apartment considering the price point. We stayed at another airbnb apartment in Barcelona for the same price per night and it was way better value.
It is important to know that this unit is on the street level (you basically open the door off a pedestrian street into the living room). Because of this you can hear absolutely everything if anyone had to sleep in the front room (including grafetti artists - the front door was tagged on our first night). Also because it opens from an alley, you can't open any of the windows in the front (or curtains) so the apartment is very dark. The shower curtain was mouldy at the bottom, as the shower bottom filled up with water after it had been on for only a few minutes.
Pros: location, Air con, Wifi, Hair dryer, Kitchen.
Appartment well located, modern, clean and comfortable.. The only negative thing is the neighboorhood, a little bit noisy but everything was great and Damien is really nice.
Enjoy your stay in Barcelona !
My mother and I had a wonderful experience at Gothic Charm. Communications before our holiday were great, with lots of info and contact details given around checking in, finding our way there etc.
The flat itself is in a fabulous position, just 5/10 mins from Placa Catalunya, and a very short walk away from the metro station which opens up the whole of this amazing city.
Very comfortably furnished, we didn't want for anything. Beds were great, we both had lots of good quality sleep!
Many thanks to Damien!
The flat is in a good location (near a main street and lots of nice bars and restaurants) and is large for the price. Unfortunately we did not enjoy our stay, the power cut out and the wifi signal didn't reach the lounge room, the boiler stopped working so we had cold showers and Damien didn't return our emails or give any explanation on how to use the washer/kitchen appliances (they were not user friendly) worst of all the place is really damp and didn't smell very nice and we were constantly bitten by bugs (whether Mosquitos or bedbugs we weren't sure) we wanted to open the doors to let fresh air in but it also let in lots of bugs.

Having traveled and lived all over the world I appreciate the simple pleasures and the benefits of staying in a home rather than a hotel. I started off with sharing my spare rooms through Airbnb and now with the help of my little team we have a dozen private luxury apartments, however we strive to maintain the family feel and love to share the best of Barcelona with you.
My assistants Karolina and Maria, the cleaning team and I are here to help.
Feel free to grab a drink from the fridge and I encourage you to buy some amazing ingredients at the market and utilize the kitchen.
