Great apartment of 70 sqm with natural light consisting of 2 suites (one with a double bed and the other with 2 comfortable single beds) with ensuite bathroom, 4 exterior balconies, living room with 1 sofa comfortable double bed, kitchen and 2 full 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 (the Fish). A curious fact that the building is this apartment, works still the oldest pharmacy in the city. The apartment is completely exterior with four balconies overlooking the street, is a 3rd floor with natural light. In his rehabilitation all the original architectural elements were respected. Parking close to the apartment (Avinguda de la Catedral). Note: There is parking closer still, but for the first day is easier to get to the Cathedral Av.. The building where the apartment is located is right next to the Gothic cathedral of Barcelona, just 500 meters from the port and its adjacent beaches. Because of its unique situation is not necessary to use any transport, being 5 minutes walk from the Ramblas and Plaça Catalunya. Most museums and major attractions are within walking distance, however the main bus lines and Metro are located right next to the apartment.
Great location & the apartment had everything that is required.
The stairs to the apartment can be a bit of a challenge all depending on which floor you are on and your fitness.
The apartment is difficult to find even for our taxi driver who had a GPS. We were met at the apartment and shown the details of how things worked and what to do if we needed anything. The stairs are pretty rough. If you have a bunch of luggage, like we did, navigating the stairs to get everything to the apartment is a pain but once you have it up there you are set. The A/C worked very well for the first 3 days and then on day 4 it seemed to lose some of its cooling power. The location can't be beat. Walking distance to everything you want to see. The market is less than a 10 minute walk and you can see many of the sights by just exploring the area. The apartment is pretty basic and was fine for our stay. Beds could have been a bit better but after a long day of exploring the city some cool A/C and a flat place to lay down were all we really needed. I think if you temper your expectations of what kind of luxury you are looking for then this apartment will do you just fine. I absolutely loved the area, but if staying next time I would probably look for something with a bit more amenities.
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!
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.
Appartement très bien situé dans le quartier gothique.
Conforme à la description sur abritel.
Nous sommes arrivés à 3 heures du matin suite à un problème de vol.
Appartement à recommander et que nous louerons avec plaisir quand nous reviendrons à Barcelone.
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.
Apartment house located in a quiet area of the Gothic Quarter near Las Ramblas. The Gothic area is a maze of streets, alleys and squares full of life. In its corners medieval city history was written. Stroll through the Gothic Quarter is an unforgettable experience. All the beauty of the gothic architecture is around: The Cathedral, the churches of Santa Maria del Mar and Santa Maria del Pi, Plaza del Rei with Tinell Hall, the Call (former Jewish quarter), the museum Picasso and many other buildings. The oldest restaurants and bars of great tradition is mixed with new modern design. Next to fashion shops open their doors and craft shops selling antique furniture and objects. In the vicinity it has 3 subway lines through which can quickly reach the other key locations of Barcelona.
We own a century-old apartment building in the historic center next to the Cathedral, just 5 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas and the Picasso Museum, and 10 minutes from the best beaches of Barcelona.
The apartments have all comforts, ADSL-WIFI access throughout the building and air conditioning with heat pump.
We also have a solarium terrace on the roof of the building with views of the cathedral of Barcelona.
The area is quiet and pretty, with beautiful historic buildings and next to the main shopping street of the city.
