Nice apartment of 70 sqm with natural light consisting of 2 large suites (one with a double bed and the other with 2 comfortable single beds) both equipped with bathroom, 4 outdoor balconies, living room with 1 double sofa bed, kitchen and 2 bathrooms with shower. The apartment is in a typical old building of the Gothic Quarter. Both have been recently renovated. Modern and nicely decorated apartment combines perfectly with the old style of the building. The building is accessed by the Ripoll street but the apartment and the main facade facing the Plaza dels Peixos (Fishes). Curiously, in the building where the apartment is located, still it works the oldest pharmacy in the city. The apartment is completely exterior with four balconies overlooking the street, is a 2nd floor with natural light. In his rehabilitation all original features were respected.

Great location but…….

  • 4 of 5

First the good news….this apartment is a great location. It is a few short blocks from lots of great places and is on a small side street. We were there in February and the area was still very busy. At night it can get very loud in Barcelona so we were happy not to be right on a main street. The apartment was clean and just the right size.

But now the bad news…..and this is important. There is no elevator in the building and the stairway is treacherous. We were on the second floor which felt more like the fourth floor with heavy luggage . This apartment is not for elderly people. (we also did stay in the 4th floor apartment on our final night. The owner had a mix up with our reservation so we had to move upstairs. Fortunately he moved all of our luggage up the awful stairs.)

So if you are prepared to tackle the stairs then this is a lovely apartment in a great location!

Good location, very clean

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed four nights in April. Best things about the apartment: location, space layout, comfortable bed, very clean, good coffeemaker. We could easily get to major sights by foot or access to the Metro. We did find it to be a bit noisy; motorcycles, trucks, some construction. But it's in a big city, so to be expected. We used some ambient "white noise" sounds on the iPhone and it helped for sleeping. A few things would be helpful in the kitchen, a spatula, pasta drainer, better skillet. And there was only a little bit of toilet paper; we were told that wasn't supplied, which is a very different basic policy from the other VRBO properties we've rented.

Small, but very nice studio apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed four nights in April. This apartment is small (studio), but it has all the necessities. A nice bathroom, and a "modern look". The beds are not very comfortable :( But the place was clean and nice looking. The apartment is located very close to the La Rambla and to the beautiful Cathedral in the old town, but the quarter is very quiet still. It´s within walking distance to place Catalunja - where the public transportation system is easy to navigate. There are many reasons to choose to stay here. The payment and service was handled professionally, and we felt very welcome. The beds are the biggest drawback.
