Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Barrio Gotico - Font

Beautifully Decorated 3 Bedroom/2 Bath Apartment. Sleeps 4.

UNBEATABLE GOTHIC QUARTER LOCATION

We just finished renovating this 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'.

This apartment is right next door to our larger apartment, which we have owned and operated for 10 years with 5 star comments (see listing #132527). This is a beautifully furnished air-conditioned flat 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: 150 years old and still a feature of Barcelona and 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 two balconies. Comfortable living/dining room with original works of art, satellite TV, WIFI, and iPod/iPhone/iPad dock; fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, central heating, two bathrooms, washer and dryer. Easy access to the airport, train stations and minutes from two metro stations.

About Rita Fryer

Pleased to meet you! We love the location of this 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 2013

Why Rita Fryer chose Barrio Gotico

Ten years ago, we bought the apartment next door, so we couldn't resist taking over this apartment, too and have just finished renovating it.

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 this apartment 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the apartment, location and your beautiful city! Brad and Rachel were very professional and accommodating. We would certainly stay again.

wonderful hideaway in historic part of town

  • 5 out of 5
First of all, Barcelona is a gem of a city with lots to do and see and fabulous places to eat around every corner. This apartment is in the historic part of town near the Sea and is a walker's delight. We walked for miles everyday because we wanted to, but there are taxis everywhere so getting around was easy. We felt right at home in the apartment, very comfortable and very attractive. The beds are excellent, the towels are plush, the kitchen is well stocked, even though we never cooked, the TV and Internet worked great, no complaints. Rachel, the manager, was terrific and arranged taxis for us to and fro the airport so everything went very smoothly. Way better than staying in a hotel, this apartment is a gem!

Great Rate, Excellent Location, Fantastic Flat

  • 5 out of 5
This flat exceeded our expectations. Brad was very pleasant and welcoming as well as accommodating since we arrived much earlier than our check in time. We were able to drop off our luggage before heading out while the flat was prepared for our stay. This unit included everything you needed and could ask for. Location was incredible, with so much to do and see surrounding the location and all within reasonable walking distance. We would definitely stay in this flat again during our next visit to Barcelona.

Gem in Gothic Quarter

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of husband, wife, and 2 adult children stayed in this apartment for a week during the Christmas holidays. The apartment was just perfect for our family. The location is on a pedestrian street and walkable to so many places for shopping, eating, drinking, and sightseeing. And if your feet are tired, there are 2 metro stops 5 minutes away as well as amazingly cheap taxis at every corner. Inside the apartment, the attention to detail by the owners is truly exceptional in a rental. The decor is lovely with some eclectic art pieces, but not so fine that you feel awkward sitting on the couch. The kitchen and bathrooms are fully updated and there's even a washer and dryer (although we didn't use it). The owners provide absolutely everything and more to make it feel like a home away from home - ample closet, hanger, and drawer space so you could unpack; comfortable beds with fine linens; a large supply of fluffy towels; toiletries, bathrobes, and slippers ; a really good hair dryer; American style coffee maker with filters and the coffee to go in it; an Apple ipad/iphone dock with both kinds of connectors. They provide a very useful information packet that included restaurant suggestions; we tried several of them and they were spot on. The owners' contacts while we were there were Rachel and Brad, and they were personable, immediately available and responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Do note the owners' caveat on their listing that explains about the noise on the street. This affects the master bedroom only, not the two smaller bedrooms in the back. I brought earplugs and it was just fine; the noise didn't bother my husband at all. This is Barcelona, a very joyful city; and part of the thrill of travel is experiencing the rhythm of the city. This apartment, in the center of it all, allowed us to experience that joy.

Barcelona's medieval catherdral is a short stroll through the Gothic Quarter and near to Plaza Catalunya. The Picasso museum is just a few minutes away, in the heart of the Born.

Wander along to the Ramblas and soak up the colors, sights and sounds of the famous La Boquería market - a great place to have lunch. A few minutes further on brings you to the MACBA, Barcelona's museum of Contemporary Art.

Paseo de Gracia, with its famous Gaudi buildings - Casa Batllò and La Pedrera - is a short taxi ride away. Paseo de Gracia runs from the Plaza Catalunya up to Diagonal and is home to all the best designer shops.

The iconic Sagrada Familia - Gaudí's famous unfinished cathedral - is just a 15 minutes taxi ride.

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.

Notes:
This apartment is in a pedestrian street in a fantastic neighbourhood with great ambiance. Restaurants and tapas bars line the streets of the Gothic Quarter. As a consequence, noise filters up from people chatting on the street. This is especially evident when the doors to the balconies are open. The doors are double glazed and when closed, noise is reduced to a minimum. We have fitted the master bedroom with an extra set of double glazed doors to ensure maximum possible silence. The two single bedrooms are at the back of the apartment and not affected by street noise.
