Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday apartment in Barrio Gotico - APBCN Beautiful apartment
5 double room, sleeps 10, 2 bathrooms city centre Ramblas near beach
Centrally located and newly renovated, this great apartment is located right in the heart of Barcelona! This 5-bedroom property has all you need to explore the center of the city: it will be the ideal base from which to explore the Gothic district as well as the bohemian Borne area and the lively beaches of La Barceloneta. The Reloj apartment is located in the busy and multicultural area of Las Ramblas, in the Gothic district. Its maze of narrow roads is ideal to wander around and discover the treasures the city has to offer but please note that its colorful and lively atmosphere might not be for everyone as the neighborhood offers a different dynamic than other more residential districts of the city. The apartment has been completely refurbished and decorated while keeping its rustic style: it features restored wooden doors and original ceilings with exposed wooden beams. It has a nice and comfortable living room where guests can relax and chill out. The dining area gives access to the kitchen, which comes fully equipped to ensure a hassle free stay. All bedrooms (1 double and 4 twins) are exterior facing with windows oriented to the Pasaje del Reloj street. Being a first floor in the Gothic, well known for its narrow streets, rooms receive natural light until midday. The apartment comes with 2 bathrooms: one with bath/shower unit, the other with shower. Comfortable and centrally located, the Reloj apartment is the ideal base for your stay in Barcelona!

How to get there: Some tips with regards to the transport means from airport to the apartment
There is good shuttle service called Aerobus and runs normally every 15 mins. It will then take you to the city centre where you can alight at Placa de Cataluna in the city centre. From there you can catch the metro. (or walk 20 minutes) and get off in Drassanes , green line
Once you get off from the Metro, you will see the statue of Colon. Opposite to this, you need to walk 10 minutes up in Las Ramblas street, turn right (you will see COSMOS restaurant in the corner) in Escudellers street and in 200 m, at the end of the street you will see a big iron gate where it is written 'Pasaje del Reloj' (before LA CONCHA Restaurant). You are already there!
Taxi will cost you from around 25-30 Eur to get to the apartment (20 minutes depending on traffic conditions and only 4 passengers).

Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights during late June 2010. Our group of 6 friends found it to be an ideal base for our time in Barcelona.
The apartment is very central and easy to find. You can walk to most places in the central city within 15/20 minutes and public transport is easily accessible should you wish to use it. The apartment was very clean and well set up with everything we required. Local information was supplied and there is an excellent selection of local food shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants within 5 minutes walk.
We received good customer service from Carlos, and we would have no hesitation recommending this apartment and returning to it next time we visit Barcelona
