Very relaxed and uncomplicated and I love to travel.
HI, this is an excellent place. Very tasteful decorated and the location is central, yet a quiet peaceful house. Fernando was very helpful and friendly. I definetely recommend this place to everybody!
Was good, we do not want to tell much more because we'd like
to come again ! :)
A beautiful apartment, in a beautiful city. Lovely host and felt really comfortable and at home. I want to live there!
Excellent! , best place so far, third time
A uniquely bohemian and special space, in a central location and a genuinely hospitable host made our stay perfect. My husband and I were visiting our niece who is studying in Barcelona this semester. We had never stayed at an apartment while traveling abroad and while the photos and description of the place were great and our initial email interactions with Fernando were cordial, we were a bit nervous. Well, the nerves were not necessary. Aside from the place being more magical than we had imagined, Fernando could not have been a better host. He checked in via email throughout our stay (six nights) and answered all our questions about places for lunch, dinner or just people watching Plus, the courtyard /garden is a great place to have some cava before going out for the evening. While we only used the Nespresso machine, there is a full, well equipped kitchen as well. Finally, the bed is huge and comfortable -- a true king sized bed (not two twins pushed together).
If Fernando is still renting this place the next time we return, we will most definitely want to stay there again.
Thank you Fernando for helping make our stay so very memorable!!!

Perfecta, la casa está genial, limpia y muy chula. Fijarse bien a llegar para encontrarla.
The apartment is indeed a beautiful haven of tranquility in a wonderfully central location. Fernando is obviously a keen art and antique furniture collector which translates into a sense of sophistication in the apartment. Would definitely like to stay again at this beautiful palazzo! ;-)
Soy de Barcelona y no creo que haya un lugar más céntrico per al mismo tiempo tranquilo y con tanto encanto como este. Encantada de redescubrir mi ciudad.
The PERFECT location, we walked to almost everything we wanted to see & do. The apartment was just as advertized. Fernando met us at the cafe next door and made us familiar with the apartment and was available by e-mail to answer our questions.
Watch out for the steps down from the platform bed.
Go & enjoy !
Amazing host and location .. and very quite .. the house is much better than the photos ! .. i recommend it
Fernando as guest, he is clean and organized about communicating arrival/departure times and any other details concerning to his visit. he's welcome to stay with me whenever visiting Israel
Although I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Fernando, all the correspondence we had was pleasant and clear. My niece enjoyed chatting to him when he arrived, and he left the apartment in perfect shape. He was very pleasant and low key, and communicated clearly. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to other hosts, and look forward to staying in his apartment in Barcelona in the future.
I have been lucky enough to enjoy, several times, this hidden sanctuary, right at the center of Barcelona´s gothic quarter. Every time I go to Barcelona I stay there, I don´t want any other location, it is that perfect. It is part of a former palace turned into an apartment with its own private gorgeous, large and ever so quiet private terrace; even with a soft cascading giant water fountain!. You don´t hear a sound other than the birds, a rare quality for any location in the gothic quarter. It has a gorgeous living room with extremely high ceilings and a most charming Tribeca style decor, where old-vintage and modern mix with charm, and with the difference that this was a former palace´s salon for you to enjoy, entertain or even do business meetings. The bedroom makes you want to stay all day in and also has direct access to the terrace. Around the location you find everything, Palau de la Musica Catalana (Barcelona´s Carnegie Hall), Museums (Picasso, Textil, PreColombian art, Museum of the city of Barcelona and so many other), artisan shops, commercial shops, cafés, great restaurants, the Ramblas, and it is extremely well connected to all accesses in any direction for Barcelona´s key places to see. Fernando is also the easiest person to deal with and can give you the best recommendations for the city ;o)
Stay in this apartment only if you want the most amazing Barcelona experience. If you want a less than average experience look elsewhere. This apartment is beyond amazing: clean, authentic, full of light and a very good location with a garden that makes the space unique and unmatched in Barcelona.
Fernando is the friend that we would all like to have, educated, fun, restless, generous and a great traveler. All these qualities are reflected in his home. He can show you things most visitors never get to see. He has the scoop on all cultural happening in the city!! If you want to enjoy the real Barcelona in a place with amazing spaces and floods of Mediterranean light, Fernando is your contact.
The property is located in the most happening part of the city. On top of it. I can guarantee you will feel special staying there. This experience is worth living, not reading! So ENJOY!
