Luxury apartment, new, balcony, superb location, Gothic Quarter
These luxurious and newly renovated apartments, apartment 1 without balcony and apartment 2 with balcony, are set in the historic Gothic quarter of Barcelona. They are situated in superb location set in the heart of an attractive neighbourhood of …
We recently spent 4 days at this apartment(#1). The previous reviews were accurate what you see on the website is exactly what you get. Jordi, the property manager was fabulous to deal with. He greeted us when we arrived and arranged a taxi for our departure. The apartment was clean and the location was great. We had a bakery outside the front door, the Rambla was a 10 minute walk. Most everything was in walking distance. Checkout the restaurant Sensi about 20 meters away for great food.
I would definitely stay again and highly recommend the apartment.

Nous avons séjourné 1 semaine à Barcelone. L'appartement (celui avec la galerie) était parfait: propre, bien équipé, bien localisé , bien éclairé. Le propriétaire nous a accueilli au moment convenu et était très charmant. Nous recommandons cet appartement sans aucun doute!
My husband and I spent three nights in this centrally located apartment (Apartment 1). The pictures accurately represent the lovely modern decor; the sofa and the beds were very comfortable and the entire place was perfectly clean. There are sharp knives, pots and pans, a french press for coffee, enough silverware, dishes, and glassware for 4. A luxurious bath towel and hand towel are provided for each guest. A hi-tech combo washer-dryer allowed us to do a laundry.
Knowing nothing about Barcelona, I was lucky to chose this place. We were able to walk almost everywhere - the Cathedral, the fabulous restaurants and bars and stores in the Gothic quarter. Don't miss the Museum of the City (Cituad) if you love archaeology. A bakery is across the street for fresh chocolate croissants Monday - Saturday), a fruit stand is down the street. A tiny "supermarket" two blocks away allowed us to buy the rest of the food we needed, plus bath soap, paper towels, laundry soap, and Kleenix. Hint: bring a reusable shopping bag!
Even though we were in the middle of the lively gothic quarter during a holiday week, the street noise was not audible from the apartment because it sits at the back of the building. This was really important to my husband, who is a light sleeper.
I strongly recommend the nearby Restaurant Pla if you love food and wine. For at least one breakfast/brunch, go to Milk, just around the corner, for its legendary eggs Benedict.
We took the cable car to Montjuic Mountain and enjoyed the view, the old fort, and the Joan Miro museum. (The cable car wait was 40 minutes but well worth it)
Bring a small guidebook with walking tours and good maps of the gothic quarter -- if you can find the street with the apartment, it is a good map -- so you will not miss any of the wonderful sites. If you do not speak Spanish, you'll probably have no trouble in English, but a small phrasebook will be helpful. Most of the taxi drivers and shopkeepers speak Catalan and Spanish, and just enough English to manage. Few taxi drivers knew of this street, so we found it easier to tell them to let us off at the Colonial Hotel (with its address) on a nearby busier street. (The manager Jordi sent us great instructions for our first arrival, so you'll have no trouble getting there).
Although I own and run a vacation rental, this was the first time we had ever rented a place for our own vacation. We'd come back to Apartment 1 anytime.
Owner was very helpful during the booking process. The apartment is unbelievably nice, modern with anything you might need for a trip to Barcelona. The apartment is situated perfectly, right in the city centre with many great restaurants, bars, and clubs nearby. If we ever return to Barcelona, we will definitely stay in this apartment.
Wow!!! I had the best vacation at the apartment Rental Property 1103870, Barcelona in July -August 2013. The photos of this apartment are truly showing the ambiance. The apartment is perfect. Jordi (the manager) is caring, educated, kind, positive, smart, pleasant, alert, punctual and always professional with very nice people skills. Jordi is a responsible and mature manager. The Barcelona is magical, beautiful town, the air smells like the mix of flowers and Mediterranean see. Barcelona is a historical town with very rich architecture. Most importantly the people in this town very warm and pleasant. They are Catalonians. Their language is more remind you French then Spanish. They are Very nice people. The tourists from all over the Europe are enjoying Good Food and drinks. My wife, my son and I are true gormandizes. The food was the best. Specially the beef at restaurant called Gilda. They also had hot green pea soup with one tea spoon of shrimp ice cream… Hey we are really talking about out of the box thinking. That reminds me Salvador Dali museum, Picasso museum, Gaudi architecture all over the town, Joan Miro museum. I visited all. As far as concerned the food: I can live with tapas and sangria's every day. The fruit is great also: Melons, Nectarines, peaches. We had limousine to pick us up from BCN airport, the driver name was Frank Evangelista who also pick us up on return flight at 7:30AM from apartment. He is a good driver and Speaks English well. The ride from apartment to airport was only 30 minutes and the cost was 60 euros (tip included). You may want to ask Jordi if he can contact Frank for airport pickup for you. I highly recommend this rental property if you like to have a nice Bohemian Vacations. Oh I almost forgot, the beach was 15 minutes’ walk and water was pleasant. La Rambla was 10 minutes’ walk. Nearest subway was 10 minutes’ walk. I loved. I will be going back for sure.
I spent a couple of days in this very well located apartment in the centre of Barcelona and close to all tourist attractions, metro, restaurants and tapas bars. It was clean with everything we needed. I could only recommend it to anyone wanting to be in the beautiful old town of Barcelona.
Het appartement is gelegen op een perfecte locatie midden in het drukke en levendige Barrio Gothico. Appartement was ook erg schoon en alle faciliteiten waren aanwezig. We hebben een top tijd gehad in Barcelona en komen hier zeker weer terug. Appartement is echt een aanrader!!!
Meu namorado convenceume de que seria uma excelente escolha para uma estadia de 5 dias. No começo eu não confiava em seu julgamento porque acreditava que, ou estabamos a pagar um monte de dinheiro, ou o apartamento estaria longe ou velho.
O apartamento foi muito limpo e cuidado, os quartos con muito boa qualidade, com um bom serviço e relaçao co cliente e no centro da cidade.
Agora, sem dúvida, sei onde ficar em Barcelona! Tão confortável como em casa.
Foi realmente um prazer. Atendeu todas as minhas expectativas. Eu realmente adorei.
Very luxurious and well located apartment in Barcelona. I'll divide my review in two parts:
First, the apartment: It has a really beautiful and minimalist decoration that really stands out. It was very tidy and everything was in mint condition when we stayed there. The customer service was on par with the quality of the apartment.
The location is excellent, this looks like an old neighbourhood that is having a second youth. Yes, you have the old stone-facade buildings and the narrow streets, but you also get exotic juice shops and high quality japanese restaurants. It is also within a walk from the beach and other popular places.
I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
It was a lovely flat and so central. We had a lovely time. Comfy beds and close to the shops/bars.
Kia ora!! We are a kiwi couple and we have spent two weeks in Barcelona with my partner and has been one the most beautiful trips in my life!
The apartment was just perfect and really clean. We found the location really awesome as we were looking to spend time walking around the city and discovering history around the corners, so this location allowed us to walk to almost every interest point.
We could find easily museums, supermarkets, bars, pubs, restaurants, etc... And after all the activity of the day, we found the apartment extremely comfortable.
Therefore I really would recomend this apartment..... if I come back ever for sure I will choose this beautiful place to stay!
L'appartement est bien situé, propre et agréable. Nous avons passé un super séjour. L'appartement est en plein centre dans le quartier Gothique, nous avons pu casiment tout faire a pied.
Je pense y revenir très prochainement et le conseille vivement a tous ceux qui veulent découvrir Barcelone.
We found these apartments to be right in the middle of the old district of Barcelona.
The aprtments were clean and had all the commodities we needed for our stay.
We definetely recommend this place if your planning a 3-7 day stay in this cities.
Bel appartement, spacieux et propre, et surtout très bien placé dans le quartier gothique donc très pratique pour les visites et ballades, mais aussi pour l'ambiance.
Tout s'est bien passé, à refaire!
We had perfect stay in Barcelona: the apartment is in the very center of the Gothic quarter: you can go walking everywhere. The apartment is exactly as you can see in the photos: nice and comfortable. Excellent value for money.
