UNBEATABLE GOTHIC QUARTER LOCATION

Luxury 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'.

Beautifully renovated, fully air-conditioned apartment 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 - 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 balcony. Large and comfortable living/dining room with original works of art, satellite TV, WIFI and iPod/iPhone/iPad dock; fully equipped kitchen, central air conditioning throughout, central heating, two bathrooms, washer and dryer.

About Rita Fryer

Pleased to meet you! We love the location of our 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 2003

Why Rita Fryer chose El Barri Gòtic

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 we chose an apartment that 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.

Rita’s apartment was spacious with abundant amenities for our party of 6. Location was superb!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed walking in the gothic center with plenty of restaurant choices, and easy access to both the metro and the sea. We walked to La Boqueria and purchased abundant seafood, cheeses and vegetables for a delicious meal at home one night. Juan and Sara were both extremely helpful and gracious support during our stay. We highly recommend this charming apartment for a stay in Barcelona.

Perfect Hospitality in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The murmur of the pedestrian traffic below float up and drift through the open balcony doors. Beds comfortable. The single bedroom is a small, but functional. Would return as the location is really to die for.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The flat was wonderful. Very clean with nice furnishings. The kitchen was very well equipped and functional. Good location with an easy walk to most major sights. It was a little noisy at night but was not a problem because the bedrooms were quite and dark with comfortable beds. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this owner. They are very responsive and reliable.

Lovely apt. in Old Town, near everything!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely historic apt. is well designed for travelers! From the beginning, Sara responded promptly & nicely to all questions. Upon arrival Juan warmly greeted us at the apt. where a bottle of wine welcomed us, along with lots of available info. & comfy robes! The location is terrific - so close to the great tapas/restaurants in El Born (try euskal Etxea - tapas & dinner!), taxis, & a convenient & friendly market. It's hard to get lost - head for the water! We (2 couples) enjoyed the spacious living area and loved Barcelona!!
