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.

Lovely apartment/perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotless and exceptionally well equipped. Located in the Gothic Quarter but just one block away from the water on one side and the Born on the other, the location could not be more perfect. Check-in and check-out couldn't have been easier and Juan was most helpful in providing information and arranging transportation to the airport. If I have the opportunity to return to Barcelona I will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment. It is roomy, clean, updated and well appointed. It was absolutely perfect for us. The kitchen is very well stocked. The location is ideal--located in the charming old section of the city and within walking distance of everything. The apartment was very quiet at night---we didn't hear a sound in our cool, dark bedrooms and slept extremely well. Juan, the apartment manager, arranged taxis for our arrival and departure and was available to answer all questions. The communication ahead of our stay, from Sara, was excellent and answered all of our questions. We can't recommend this apartment highly enough for a visit to beautiful Barcelona.

Great location & Apt

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment. It started with the Sara, our contact, setting up a taxi to pick us up at the airport. After a long day it was nice to know that it was taken care of and the driver knew where to go. Once we arrived we were greeted by Juan, our apt manager. He was fab! He showed us around the apt, offered suggestions and explained the building. We traveled with two teen boys, their beds were great as was the master bed.

This is very nice apt. The pics don't do it justice. The huge wood French doors that open to a small patio are beautiful. We didnt use the kitchen but it seemed well stocked. Major bonus for us, it had a/c.

The location was amazing too. We were right in the gothic quarter. The shops and streets were fun to explore during the day. Starbucks isn't far, 5 min walk and so many restaurants within 5 mins.

My entire family loved everything about this apt and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The condo was spacious and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

There was some noise from the street at night but the bedrooms are in the back so it never bothered us.
