Overview

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.

About Rita Fryer

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

Why Rita Fryer chose Ciutat Vella

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Second Verse Same As The First

  • 5 out of 5
This is the second time I've rented this apartment and both experiences have been excellent. The apartment is located in the Gothic Quarter, within easy walking distance of many excellent sites, restaurants, museums, and bars. The living room is spacious and offers a small balcony over Calle Merce - the cobblestone street in front of the apartment building. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and the two large bedrooms are comfortably apart from each other. Check-in/checkout was quick and easy and the person doing that job was personable and knowledgeable. Fast Internet access is greatly appreciated. Hopefully, there will be a third chance to stay here. Barcelona is a great city and this apartment is perfect for persons looking to enjoy all the city has to offer.

Excellent stay!

They arranged a taxi from the airport for us and met us at the apartment. The location is great! The apartment is very nice, clean, plenty of room, comfortable bedrooms and modern bathrooms. We would highly recommend it. For two couples, it was perfect!

1st time to Barcelona

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was beautiful and in the best location for exploring Barcelona! All the "extras" in the apartment - from coffee and tea in the kitchen to supplies in the bathrooms - were much appreciated and made our stay really feel like home. We appreciated the personal recommendations for restaurants and markets and enjoyed both cooking after shopping at La Boqueria and dining out close to the apartment. This was the perfect way for our family to enjoy all the sites of Barcelona and come "home" to a comfortable, well appointed apartment at the end of the day.

Barcelona Experience

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, sister-in-law & 3 adult daughters had a wonderful stay. The flat was very comfortable and just as pictured. It is walking distance from the water, La Rambla & the hop on hop off bus. There are plenty of coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants & bars all nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

All the comforts of home with a Catalan flair!

  • 5 out of 5
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.
