Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Sant Pere - Santa Caterina i la Ribera - Vintage 2

2 bd 2 br apartment in the city center

An Unforgettable opportunity to experience Barcelona staying in a charming 17th century building once a palace.

This Unique 2 en-suite bedrooms apartment has lots of history in it. It has been renovated in 2012 by an extremely sensitive architect that mixed the old art of the building with comfortable areas that are going to make your vacation very special.

Each bedroom has a very comfortable and top quality queen bed. One master bedroom has two very artistic handmade bed side tables done with the original hydraulic tiles of the flat. It also has a lounge area with sofa.

The bathrooms are a state of art. One with an amazing rock made washing hands basin and exposed stonewalls.

You have also your fully equipped kitchen to cook as a chef. It has dishwasher and first class electrical appliances. The living room can accommodate two extra people on its sofa bed. There is a large refurbished table that seats 6 people and a very nice wing chair next to the fire place. We also have here two additional tables made with the original hydraulic tiles that once where covering the floors of this unit.

Wood beams, exposed stone walls refurbished furniture such as a piano from the beginning of the last century

mixed with high quality materials used for the renovation makes this apartment a five starts experience.

We also give an exquisite treatment to our guest with a full concierge service while you stay in Barcelona.

The apartment is located in a narrow cosy and safe street in el Barri del born (quarter) half block from the famous Palau de la Música Catalana (Music Palace), Santa Caterina Market, the Cathedral and the Museo Picasso and just 5 minutes on foot to Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas and Santa Maria del Mar church. You just need to cross Via Laietana to be in the Gothic quarter where you can have some yummy Spanish tapas and walk a few blocks up to visit the charming Art Nouveau buildings of Gaudí. It’s ideal for vacations or business.

Felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely walk up flat is located in an absolutely fantastic location. You are right in the middle of the wonderfully charming Gothic Quarter. It's exactly where you want to be in Barcelona.

The apartment has two super comfortable bedrooms with wonderfully comfortable and cozy beds, with lovely soft sheets and big warm comforters. After a long day tour it's a bed that feels great to fall into. The back bedroom has a very unique all glass shower that keeps the room feeling open. There are ample curtains etc for privacy, it's a very unique and bohemian place with small creative little details that suit the neighborhood it's in. The apartment has great ventilation and on the street side the bedroom is not too noisy. Often people complain about gothic street noise etc, but the apartment was as quiet as one could expect in a city dwelling.

Our family of four shared the bedroom as follows. My teen son slept on pullout sofa bed, and my oldest teen slept in one of the queen sized beds. My husband and I in slept in back bedroom. Worked perfectly.

The hosts left a bottle of water, a bottle of wine and a bowl of fresh fruit which was so thoughtful, as well as set up a taxi for us to go to the airport. There is a washer, but no dryer, but for a few important necessities it will air dry fairly fast.

The one small thing that could be adjusted, that while the wifi was good, it did not extend to back bedroom which might easily be fixed by moving router to a better spot within the apartment. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you will need for a home cooked meal. I loved this apartment!

I will definitely stay here again when visiting Barcelona, I liked it that much.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very nice comment. We are really happy that you had such a nice stay in Barcelona. We will check the wifi extension to the back bedroom. As for the drier our washing machine is a dryer itself. Its needs to be programed so it dries the cloths after washing them. Thanks a lot for staying with us.We hope we can see you in the future.

Great stay, great property

  • 5 of 5

We loved this flat in the center of Barcelona. It was convenient to everything, quiet at night and a lovely accommodation that was just as pictured. Julio and the gang could not have been more helpful - everything went as they promised and as planned. We highly recommend the gastro tour! Great way to experience the city!

Incredible Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This has taken me much longer to get around to writing than it should have as our stay in the Apartment was absolutely fantastic. We were a family of five and couldn't have had a better stay in Barcelona. The location was fabulous, very safe and close to many restaurants. Victor was a perfect host and we hired his father Miguel for two days for walking tours. We saw so much of Barcelona and got a much better feel for the city than if we had stayed in a hotel. Going to the Sagrada Familia with Miguel was a highlight of our stay. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to immerse themselves in Barcelona and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

great home base for touring Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

The property is just as described on line. It's clean, quiet, comfortable and most of all conveniently located. You get a great feel for living in Barcelona. This is one of the better VRBO properties we have rented. Victor and his associates were very easy to deal with.

Great Apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was beautifully restored and had all the modern amenities. As the four of us stayed for six nights, having two separate bathrooms was a big plus. The apartment was clean and well maintained just as it was represented in the listing photos.

As far as location the apartment couldn't have been more centrally located to all of the main sites: museums, churches, shopping, restaurants, sea shore. Nearly everything that we wanted to see was within easy walking distance.

One of the best features of the apartment was our host, Victor, who was readily available via email, text or phone for any questions that we had. Victor provided us with restaurant recommendations, arranged for taxis, and provided entertainment suggestions. He is extremely friendly and helpful.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to have a great experience in "old" Barcelona.
