Lovely apartment was a choice for our family of 4 because of the pictures (it is really as on pictures) of the place and the location of the place. For that location price was OK. Although the apartment is best for 3 people - and the owner did not hide that fact in any of conversations - we had a great time in a funky place with best location for any activities - sightseeing, beach, food experience or shopping.
The owner gave good info regarding hot to get to apartment. I would suggest to take a cab from Airport since the price is good (25 €) and you save a lot of time looking for the address. even though here were some construction work done on the building the owner compensated that with a stacking the refrigerator. Thanks for that...
The 2 rooms are stuck in the end of the apartment so you did not hear no noise from the street. The living room has a sofa (OK to sleep, but not really good) and even in the living room noise from the street is not big issue. If the sofa would be in future perhaps replaced with a pull-out sofa 4-5 people could sleep easily. There is not a lot of daylight in apartment, but I think that if visiting in hot summer that is just a bonus.
The location is perfect with market across the street, many good restaurants and close to LAs Ramblas, beach and Metro station.
If in future visiting Barcelona i will try to book the same apartment for sure.
I stayed at the apartment with my mom in December. The hostess was lovely and very helpful. We arrived during a parade, which made it difficult for the taxi to get down the streets, so she met us midway and walked us to the apt. The hostess also was kind enough to arrange the taxi pickup up when we left.
The apt is quite unique, spacious and clean. The apt is located in the Gothic area and we were able to walk to most of the sites we wanted to see...the location is really perfect, so close to sites, markets, nightlife, restaurants, supermarkets etc. I would definitely stay again! Loved the stay and loved Barcelona!
This is in the centre of the main tourist area of Barcelona and major sites are within walking distance. Its also close to an underground station and Barcelona's excellent public transport for accessing the wider city.
The apartment, as you can see, is stylishly furnished with great attention to the period feel. It's well equipped, there are local food shops and we cooked as well as visiting local restaurants. Being in the heart of the city there is some street noise heard from the living room but the bedrooms are deep within the cavernous ancient building and are so dark and quiet that you will need an alarm to wake in the morning.
We loved this apartment. Centrally located in the old town, close to Ramblas, market and harbour. Crazy decor and very unlike usual sterile apartments. Wouldn't suit everyone's taste (lots of orange!) but we absolutely loved it. Owner very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely apartment and exactly as it looks in the photos... The location couldn't be better in barcelona, although beware of apartment buildings with scaffolding on them as you won't be getting much sleep after 9am with all the banging and drilling! Apart from that, very quiet location consdiering it is right in the middle of town. Would stay again.
