BARCELONA ***FANTASTIC LOCATION *** GOTHIC QUARTER LUXURY

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Ciutat Vella - Merce

Luxury Spacious 3 Bedroom Apartment. 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

UNBEATABLE GOTHIC QUARTER LOCATION

Luxury three bedroom apartment in Barcelona's emblematic Gothic quarter, in Carrer de la Mercé. Near to the Cathedral of La Merced - Barcelona's patron Saint - and right in the heart of 'Old Barcelona'.

Beautifully renovated, fully air-conditioned apartment in an historic building with every comfort and decorated to the highest standards. Located just off the seafront, only five minutes' walk from the famous Ramblas in one direction and The Born in the opposite direction. Surrounded by myriad restaurants and tapas bars.

Medieval sights abound mixed in with shops of every description and sidewalk café life. A short stroll takes you to the Port Vell--Barcelona's beautiful old port, lined with restaurants and museums and location of Barcelona's acquarium and the Marenostrum shopping and entertainment complex. From there, you can take the cable car to Montjuic - location of the Spanish Village and the Miró Foundation - for amazing views of Barcelona and the port.

Walk the other way and you are in front of Barcelona's medieval cathedral and near to Plaza Catalunya. The Picasso museum is a few minute's walk, in the heart of The Born. Wander along to The Ramblas and soak up the colors, sights and aromas of the famous La Boquería market - a great place for lunch. A few minutes further on brings you to the MACBA, Barcelona's museum of Contemporary Art.

The apartment is a genuine home from home with 4 metre ceilings and balcony. Large and comfortable living/dining room with original works of art, satellite TV, WIFI and iPod/iPhone/iPad dock; fully equipped kitchen, central air conditioning throughout, central heating, two bathrooms, washer and dryer. Easy access to the airport, train stations and minutes from two metro stations.

Pleased to meet you! We love the location of our apartment - right in the heart of the Gothic Quarter - walking distance from just about everything. We have lived in Catalonia for over twenty years. Rita spent 20 years in the hotel business worldwide and understands what travellers want. John is an international art consultant. We want to help you enjoy this wonderful city by making you feel right at home in very comfortable surroundings.

Rita Fryer purchased this apartment in 2003

Barcelona is such a great city! We both visited Barcelona before we met and had an instant love affair with the city and its people. We wanted to buy an apartment which we could use to explore Barcelona and experience the sights, sounds and aromas that make Barcelona such a great place to visit. There is no place so emblematic than Barcelona's Gothic Quarter and we chose an apartment that gives us the comfort of home within walking distance to all the sights in the historic part of the city.

We love strolling over to the famous Ramblas and visiting the incredible La Boqueria market which recently celebrated its 150th anniversary - unique in all of Europe. Some of our favorite restaurants are just minutes away by foot or taxi. We love walking along the boardwalk on the Barceloneta beach at sunset.

This place is fabulous. We were greeted by the owner who happened to be there and she was so welcoming and let us store our luggage as we arrived early from our ship. The property was meticulously clean, well maintained and accurately reflected the photos in the listing. Rachel, the property manager went out of her way to show us how everything worked and came to our aid when we had a hot water issue. We would definitely stay here again or in another of the owner's properties as we intend to return to Barcelona in the future. The location can't be beat! Calle Merce is just perfectly positioned between Ramblas and El Born and all the wonderful sights in the old city. The recommendations for dining and entertainment were very helpful as well. The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked with staples and all the dishes/utensils one could need or want. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms being in the back were away from night time street revelers.

We had the privilege of staying in this wonderful apartment recently for a two week period and it far exceeded our expectations. Firstly the place is beautifully decorated and has everything you will ever need for your vacation. From the first correspondence to the orientation the owners pay close attention to every detail and answered all our questions quickly and explained everything making it so very easy! The location was fabulous right in the heart of the old city and so close to everything. The person who greeted us was exceptional, so personable and provided us with so much additional information. The apartment is so well stocked that we were all so amazed those little details that the owners supplied made this rental one of the best we have encountered! Thank you so much for everything you made our trip spectacular!

Barcelona Vacation

The location of this lovely apartment was great. We walked everywhere. Twice we went on day trips outside the city and the meeting place for our guide was a simple half block away at the post office. Wonderful restaurants nearby. The apartment was beautiful and very comfortable. The owner has thought of all the little details that make one's vacation pleasurable. Diana, who managed our account, was so helpful particularly before our arrival and answered several emails with lots of travel questions regarding the apartment and the city. Rachel who met us at the apartment with the keys was also extremely helpful with information about the apartment and about the city and it's sites. My husband and I would love to return to the fantastic city. And we would definitely rent another vacation apartment from this owner. Thank you!

Thnaksgiving Break

Recently rented the apartment over the week of Thanksgiving. I can honestly say I could not have been happier with the apartment, or in my dealings with the owner Rita.
I felt like we were staying in what would be equivalent to an apartment in the West Village of Manhattan. Awesome location with restaurants/cafes/shopping all in close proximity. There was also plenty of space in the living room area, and the satelite TV was an added bonus. Well renovated kitchen and baths as well.
Thanks Rita!

Owner's Response: We are really honoured you chose to spend Thanksgiving with us in Barcelona and that the apartment added to your enjoyment of the city. Please come back!

Clean, Comfortable, and great location!

We really enjoyed Barcelona and being there for the festival! We found the apartment clean, comfortable, spacious and very well located. The bar directly below was a little busy the first night (Saturday night during the festival) and there was a bit of noise from below, however we were tired from our travels and it didn't seem to bother us (no ear plugs required - even though we brought them as we were concerned about the bar directly below). The noise level was not a concern for the rest of the stay.

We really enjoyed the Barri Gotic area, and we liked to see the activity on the street below the apartment. Brad was excellent with the check in and out, and helped us a lot. He even waited with my wife, mom and aunt and our luggage while I tracked down a taxi - which was very kind of him.

Thanks very much to you. I understand we just missed you Rita when we checked out, which is too bad - we would have liked to meet you. We would highly recommend this apartment to others!

Moving around Barcelona is easy: taxis are cheap and plentiful and public transport works really well. Two metro lines are only 5 mins away. The hop on/hop off Touristic Bus also stops nearby and is a great way to see the city.
