Overview

About the property

nice and central apartment for 4 person, close to Ramblas

The apartment is located in the city center, in the picturesque district of Sant Antoni market whose centenary will see from the balcony.

The area is excellent for exploring the city. Due to its strategic location, you can go either walking or in the countless transportation (bus, metro, bike, etc) to places, neighborhoods and most emblematic monuments of the city.

In just ten minutes walking, you will be in Las Ramblas, Plaza of Spain, the Passeig de Gracia, Rambla de Catalunya, Montjuic, Plaza Catalunya, the Gothic Quarter, the Raval, the gothic, or Maremagnum, among other examples.

Taking the subway home at 50 meters you will find in just 15 minutes at the feet of the Holy Family.

Definitely the best place to see the city.

Perfect place from which to explore Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed at The Wood House on Comte de Borrell, across from the San Antoni Mercat, for two weeks this summer. It was perfect in practically every way. Manuel was the consummate host throughout our stay, greeting us, showing us the many amenities and comforts of the apartment, and then remaining in touch to help us order cabs, and even travel in from his own home to let us into the apartment when we forgot our keys! Such a kind and helpful host. The apartment was lovely, comfortably cozy yet private for two adults on different sleep schedules, with a perfect little kitchen and bathroom outfitted just right. We didn't cook much, but we were very comfortable bringing in dinner a couple of times, and preparing breakfast pretty much every day. Manuel has a nice sense of style, and I appreciated the several books in English, when I needed a break from my own reading material. The location was perfect--felt like a local neighborhood but within easy walking distance from just about anywhere. The shady street kept the apartment relatively cool, and the two fans allowed us to sleep quite comfortably. The neighborhood offered many many wonderful eateries, including our personal favorite, Cafe Parlement. The only downside, which was situational and temporary, was that the stairs were under construction during our stay, leading to some dust, noise and awkward pathways. The upside to that was the lift that was being installed for future visits! Mercat San Antoni was also under construction, and will be a great addition to the adventure and convenience of this very special place to stay. Thank you, Manuel!

This is a very charming very small apartment located in a great place for exploring Barcelona. Host

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this apartment and host very much. It is extremely small and cramped. It's decorating very cute. There is NO Airconditioning. We were hot at all times. There is a ceiling fan and 1 small space fan but does not circulate air. The bathroom is very tiny you have to sit on toilet sideways.

It is definitely decent for 2 people only.

Manuel : you were the Best! Thank you

Owner's Response: Hola Angelika. Muchas gracias por recomendar the Wood House. Hasta ahora ningún huésped se había quejado del calor ya que es suficiente con el ventilador de techo del salón y con el otro ventilador de suelo en un verano normal, pero este año hemos tenido dos semanas de extraordinario calor en Barcelona. Mis mejores deseos. Manuel.

Our overall experience was pleasant.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very cozy. Convenient location to all sightseeing. We used the metro system to travel and it was very easy to use. We actually ended up taking the metro to the airport. The place is clean and neat. Our request to the owner was the early check in and late check out and he was very helpful with it. The only thing that we missed is the air conditioner. The apartment has a ceiling fan but if your are used to the AC you will miss it. Nice place and will recommend it.

Great location, perfect for 2 people

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our time. The apartment is in a great location, very close and walkable to many other parts of the city. Manuel keeps the apartment very clean and comfortable. It was cozy and perfect for 2 people. Manuel was easy to communicate with and very accommodating. We hope to come back soon!

Homely, clean, full of character in great area.

  • 5 of 5

After 6 weeks of travelling we ended our European trip in Barcelona. The Wood House was one of our favorite apartments. My son (14) loved the mezzanine bed. My daughter(11) loved the TV. We all loved the vibe of the place and the small details that made it cosy and comfortable. The kitchen is tiny but functional and the food in Barcelona is cheap enough to warrant eating out most meals anyway. Manuel was lovely, friendly and warm. He was very helpful with tourist information and booked our taxi to the airport.

Good

  • 3 of 5

Comfortable but very tight bathroom. TV had some English channels which was nice for relaxing at end of day. Centrally located to everything we wanted to see. Manager easy to deal with. Nice having the balcony doors. 44 steps up to apartment.

Owner's Response: Hello Todd. Thanks for recommend the Wood House. I must beg you pardon, I forgot to tell you that all TV channels (just one hundred) can be seen in english language, the most in original version. The apartment is on a first floor without lift. The apartment has been totally renovated for your comfort as you can see in pictures. My best wishes. Manuel.

Surely the ideal apartment.
