An Unforgettable opportunity to experience Barcelona, staying in a charming 17th century building once a palace. This Unique two bedroom two bath apartment has lots of history in it.

A Charming Flat Bordering El Born and Barri Gottica Areas of Barcelona

  • Review Submitted: 18-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
Victor's flat was in an excellent location making it easy to walk to El Born, Barri Gottica, and to the modern areas of the city. It was on a charming street that is close to the Santa Caterina market, and many local restaurants and artisan boutiques.

The apartment is modern, small and cozy with two rooms, plus a sofa bed, and a charming outdoor area for al fresco dining in warmer weather. The decor was a mix of traditional and modern, with dramatic touches, and he provided high end toiletries, as a nice personal touch.

To arrive at the flat, you have to climb a staircase, so keep the suitcases light!

A convenience store is right downstairs for water, milk, bread and other staples.

Within close proximity there are a variety of eating options.

We would happily stay here again as a family of four!

Great flat, Great Location!

My family of 5 stayed a Victor's apartment during the New Years Holiday and loved the location. We were able to walk to Las Ramblas, the Born district, and with a Metro stop within a 3 minute walk, we could get to anywhere we wanted. Victor and his father were extremely hospitable and went above and beyond what other owners have done for us. We 've traveled all over the states & Mexico using VRBO - and Victor's team is a stand out.

Victor even helped us arrange a culinary walking tour with the lovely Regina. It can be hard to have 3 generations all enjoy a tour like this - but everyone enjoyed the tour and the food. And I loved how Regina shared foods that met our interests and took us to some mainstays, but also some of the smaller businesses that we would never have found on our own. All in all. You'll fall in love with Barcelona staying here!

Great Place To Stay!!

Wonderful historic neighborhood and lovely old building with an apartment that has been remodeled and decorated in tasteful contemporary style. We found the accommodations comfortable and beautiful at the same time and we would not hesitate to stay here again. We loved the proximity to the fresh market, the Picasso museum, music center, boutique shopping, and many tapas restaurants. Very centrally located and easy walking to almost everything we wanted to do. The apartment is very clean with all amenities necessary for the perfect vacation.

A nice place to stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Barcelona which was enhanced by the quality accommodations at this rental property. The apartment was conveniently located only a few blocks to the center of town. The bedrooms were spacious a quaint breakfast room and a small den in the rear of the apartment. Had the weather been warmer we would have enjoyed spending time in the private outdoor living space. As for practical matters the place was clean the kitchen had all the necessities and there was a washing machine our needs were well met.

Great Barcelona Flat in a Perfect Location

  • Review Submitted: 17-Dec-2013

My husband and I met up with my brother and his best friend here in Barcelona. We had a great stay in a perfect location. We walked everywhere and never took a cab the whole 5 days. It was superb.
The bathrooms are tight but that's pretty standard in Europe. The see-through shower in the master, while beautiful, lacks in privacy.. So shut the bedroom door!!
It was an over all wonderful stay and recommended.

The room has 4 meters high ceilings with wooden beams and the architect didn't accept to have a 'toilet' inside the room (we tried to convince him, but he said that we would definitely ruin the sense of the room).
