Lots of space, 3 bedroom apartment. Each bedroom with a double bed.

The apartment surface is 120 square meters (393 square feet).

Ideal central spot to use as hop on point to visit all Barcelona, easy and convenient. The apartment is located less than 10 min. walking of almost all the tourist attractions of Barcelona. Shopping, restaurants, bars and most attractions are close by.

2 bedrooms at the front, 1 big bedroom at the back, which allows better intimacy. Double bed in each bedroom + one single bed in the back bedroom. A cleaned apartment with fresh linen is always provided.

Living room and the main bedroom have big balcony overlooking the Ramblas, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the activities, music and energy of the most famous street in Barcelona. The apartment is located opposite the Liceu Opera House and 2 minutes from the world famous Boqueria food market.

The living room is sunny, with lots of space, sofa, TV and internet. There is a dining table next to the balcony. There is AC and double-glazing.

A fully equipped kitchen is provided where you can cook your fresh produce from the Boqueria Market. Microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker... All necessities are provided and included (dishwasher soap, washing machine soap, trash bags etc)

Bathrooms are simple and clean. Fresh towels and hairdrier provided.

The property is located in the heart of Barcelona, with the Ramblas at your doorstep. This area is called Ciutat Vella or Barri Gotic (the historical Gothic Quarter).

The Gothic District passes between the two most important avenues of the old city, Via Laietana and Las Ramblas, and between the Catalonia square. And the sea is just ten minutes on foot from the apartment. A very pleasant walk through the harbour.

This District constitutes the heart of the old city of Barcelona where the walled Roman city was located (the origin of present Barcelona).

Also, the fantastic Art Noveau style Cafe de la Opera is close to the apartment. You can enjoy breakfast or some tapas. Good value for money.

The Ramblas is a street full of energy, colored flower stands and busy day and night.

Five minutes walking distance through the flower stands you can find the Boqueria market (listed among the best markets in the world). You can do grocery shopping (avoid the middle pricey stands ;) and you can buy nice fresh bread to go with your freshly brewed coffee.

Opposite the apartment there is a metro station (Metro Liceu) and buses (14 and 59) that will take you to the Olimpic Village or the beach area or Barceloneta, the old fisherman's neighbourhood in less than 15 minutes to enjoy some paella. Public transport is available to take you conveniently to all areas of Barcelona.

The apartment is antique, beautifully decorated in a vintage style, with art noveau lamps.

This is a family run apartment and we will all be happy to help you and assist you in anything we can to help you enjoy your holidays in Barcelona. We are travelers ourselves and we are familiar with the necessities when living abroad.

About The Owner

I am a Barcelona local who loves her city and is happy to share any recommendations and experiences that will help you enjoy Barcelona from local point of view, not intoxicated by tourists.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose Ciutat Vella

Is a beautiful lively area in the center of the city. You will have a vintage experience, living in an apartment with curiosities and antique building and deco. Where ladies in the 19th century tried out their outfits, since it was once used as a tailor for the Opera House.

What makes this apartment unique

Enjoy the vibrant center of Barcelona and shopping and the Gotic quarter and the Cathedral are just around the cornder. Super central location, after long hours of walking, you enjoy a quick rest & stop at your apartment, for a quick break, for a snack and then you can go back to your tourist race. Grocery shopping in the Boqueria market and close by supermarkets, you can store some food at home and avoid spending extra money on overpriced touristic food.

Fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

It has taken a bit for me to write this but the apartment was wonderful. It is so comfortable and centrally located..walking to the world famous market, along Las Ramblas or even to the beach was perfect for our family of 5. Our kids are big, so there was lots of space for them to relax and have some down time. I think the best thing was the character of the place though, or the advice/info we got about Barcelona. Our stay was wonderful!

Perfect Apartment for Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Barcelona apartment! This apartment worked perfectly for 3 couples visiting for a week. There are 2 huge bedrooms and one normal size, each with a queen size bed and which are quiet at night once we closed the doors. The living space was comfortable for us all and we appreciated having wifi. We loved overlooking the Ramblas and being so central to the Boqueria market. Our host Elisender met us when we arrive and was helpful and attentive. It was easy to get around the city from our apartment, on foot, metro, bus or taxi. We loved being in an older apartment in the heart of the city and would happily come again.

Ideal Spot for your Barcelona Visit

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples, no car, fresh off a Med cruise, and this was the perfect spot for us! Although right in the middle of the action, the apartment was quiet and private. Take a step out to the balcony and enjoy the action! Beds were comfortable, two of the bedrooms are HUGE, both street-front bedrooms are very quiet at night and the kitchen was just right for our culinary efforts after stocking up at the market (a long block away). Can't go wrong choosing a stay here. Eli was super attentive and helpful.

Charming and good location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very centrally located. It is an easy walk south down the Ramblas to the port, and right on the edge of the old quarter. Great for wandering in a car-free area. Some of the streets to the south and west are sketchy at night, as guidebooks indicate, and you have to watch out for pickpockets on the Ramblas. The subway is literally a few steps from the apartment. The 3 bedrooms are large. Two face the street and open onto the living/dining area. One is down a hallway and faces a rear courtyard. The door to the apartment opens onto a lobby area in the middle and one and a half bathrooms (i.e. you don't go through any of the bedrooms to access the bathrooms which is convenient for sharing). To the right is the main living area and to the left is the galley kitchen and third bedroom. The kitchen has a small table and seating area next to it but we ate in the main room. The balconies facing the Ramblas were too small to sit on (but the double doors from the master bedroom and living/dining room could be opened for air and a bit of a view. There was a fair bit of street noise on Friday and Saturday night but it wasn't too bad when the doors were closed. The people in the courtyard bedroom actually had more of a problem with noise. The apartment is charming and spacious and provided privacy so that we didn't feel we were on top of each other all week. The climb from the street wasn't too bad except taking the luggage up at the beginning, so bring a strong young person like we did! The kitchen has two burners and a small microwave. No oven. We shopped at the Boqueria market and had breakfast and two dinners in the apartment, which made a nice change from eating out. Eli was very helpful and obliging. There are many guidebooks in the apartment and some novels if you don't want to bring your own. My only criticism was the pillows. They were not supportive enough, and I slept on my neck pillow from the plane. All in all I would recommend the apartment.

Rambles apartment

  • 5 of 5

With three women and three bedrooms, we each had a room of our own. The delightful living room provided a place to relax and enjoy the action below on the Ramblas. Mornings we walked 5 minutes to the Boqueria for coffee. A favorite neighborhood, El Born, is also within easy walking distance of the apartment. For sites further away, we loved that the metro was just outside the door. With it's quick link to all of Barcelona, it made touring the city very easy.

During our stay Eli was responsive to all of our questions and we were pleased with all communications related to the apartment. This has to be the most convenient city location and the most charming apartment I've stayed in. When I return to Barcelona, I'd love to stay here again.

Charming spacious apartment with great location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, her husband and my sister and I spent 5 nights in this great apartment. The location was perfect in the middle of La Rambla so walking everywhere or hopping on the metro right outside your door was great. The apartment is very spacious, with a huge bedroom in the back overlooking a garden courtyard with large trees, while the front living area and 2 bedrooms have balconies overlooking all the action on La Rambla. I loved the old chandeliers and interesting antiques, and nice to be able to have a kitchen area to make coffee or store your wine and cheese for evening snacks while relaxing and regrouping for the day.
