Why Host chose Ciutat Vella

From the moment I walked in the Barrio del Born 20 years ago and it was not even a shadow of what it is today, I noticed a special atmosphere walking along the Paseo del Born, it was early spring, with a gentle breeze, the trees just green and all these streets with names of artisans, made ​​me fall in love with the area and was really thinking in 1500 when each craftsman had his street.

Museo Picasso himself apart the magnificent works of the painter, its buildings will bring to mind those times. Now everything has changed but the streets are still fantastic.

A medieval but with all the appeal of boutiques, restaurants, tapas, cocktelerias and especially the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a city like Barcelona, ​​where nobody is going to sleep before 12 pm neighborhood.

Great apartment in a wonderful location in Barcelona.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at Flavia's apartment and it was great. Flavia was there to greet us and show us everything in the well stocked apartment. In our opinion it is the best neighborhood to stay in Barcelona with lots of narrow alleyways, restaurants and boutiques. We loved our stay and would recommend this apartment to anyone. Thank you Flavia!

Perfect location in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Flavia's apartment is wonderfully located by the Basilica in the gothic quarter. The two outdoor porches in good weather are great places to sit. The kitchen is very efficient. The loft bedroom is delightful.. it was a pleasure to wake up here and return here each day we stayed..

Construction noise, no internet, ACCUSED OF STEALING plastic internet information card

  • 1 of 5

We just returned from an unacceptable stay at this apt from February 4-8.

Day 1- We arrived on Saturday eve and met Lucas at the apt. All went smoothly. He gave us a quick overview and asked when we would leave on 2/8 so he could have the maid arrive a half hour after we checked out. He also told us there was a construction project going on next door, which was VERY disappointing news. We had plans to sleep in, recharge our batteries and make full use of the terraces during our stay. Not being warned of this prior to arrival was disheartening to say the least. We then checked the internet. No connection, which is a big problem for us. We sent a text about the wifi to Lucas but no response. An ominous start.

Day 2- Still no wifi. There are notes in the apartment to call Flavia if you need something so we forwarded the text to her. Also no response. On the way out of the apt we had a mishap with the window blinds and we were of course mortified. At this point we called Flavia to let her know, to apologize and to assure her we would pay to have them fixed. She didn't answer and there was no way to leave a voicemail. We then called Lucas and fortunately he answered and said he would have them fixed tomorrow. Whew!

Day 3- Monday morning and the loud noise begins, 7:45 AM. It doesn't stop. Still no wifi. We leave the apt and contact Lucas to find out the plan for the blinds. He texts us later to say they are fixed. Hurrah! We return to the noisy apt to find the blinds fixed, the internet card gone and the modem turned upside-down. This made us happy since we assumed Lucas was trying to fix the wifi problem when he let the worker into the apt to fix the blinds.

Day 4- Construction noise again at 7:45. No wifi. No word from Lucas or Flavia. All plans of sleeping in and/or relaxing on the terrace with wifi gone.

Day 5- More noise. No wifi for the whole stay. No word from Flavia about the internet, the noise, nothing.

We checked out of the apt, happy to depart. We left the place in great condition but did leave two small bags of garbage inside the front door, knowing the maid would be there within 30 minutes.

On 2/14 I received an insulting email from Flavia accusing us of breaking the blinds (well yes, which we paid for and tried to apologize for), of STEALING the internet card (definition of insult to injury), and making a huge deal over the two small bags of garbage left at departure. We paid a lot of money to be so insulted. Garbage indeed.

Owner's Response: Dear guest In first place, I would like to apologize for the missing internet information card. There was a misunderstanding between the cleaning lady and myself. At the same time, please consider I've been involved in short term apartment rentals for almost a decade, hosting hundreds of guests. I even had lamps stolen! Again, im sorry for the misunderstanding in this regard. In regards to the construction noise, it wouldn't have occurred on the first 2 days of your stay since it was during a weekend. Im sorry if there was noise during the remaining 3 days but we were informed by the building next to ours, the construction work had been completed in mid January. I've had the apartment occupied since then and unfortunately you were the only guests that had this issue. When it comes to contacting me, I can categorically say I had never received any texts nor phone calls from you during the days of your stay. We are in 2017, and if "there was no way to leave a message" is because you were not dialing the number correctly. I receive texts and voicemail on a daily basis from numerous people. If Lucas doesn't answer his phone, I ALWAYS receive a phone call from my guests. Guaranteed. In regards to my email from February 14th, I do not see how I insulted you. I did not "accuse you of breaking the blinds". All I said was: "when the technician came to see the kitchen blind, informed that has been manipulated. Lucas said that showed you how to open and how to close". No need to accuse anyone, especially when they have admitted the fact. Your comment " making a huge deal over the two small bags of garbage left at departure", i find it extremely exaggerated, since all I said was "You left the apartment with rubish when it is written everywhere that rubish must be taken away". That's simply a reminder of the rules to our guests when they dont follow them. I'm sorry you found your stay horrible but there is no need to offend me by referring to my lovely apartment as "rubbish". Just want to point out that you never offer to pay the blinds, I was compelled to make you pay them with the security deposit. Sincerely, Enviado desde mi iPhone

Centrally located in hip neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Place was great and our host was very accommodating. The neighborhood in my opinion is the best in Barcelona with tons of great restaurants and bars, making this apartment the ideal location. Apartment was very clean and nice and the balconies are great. Would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Barcelona.

Amazing chic apartment in the center of the most authentic neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a restorative vacation in beautiful Barcelona. It was our first visit and we fell in love. The apartment is as pictured and appears to be recently renovated. It is also clean and nicely decorated, particularly the small bedroom upstairs painted in soothing grays with a crisp, heavy comforter. We were able to lie at night looking at the illuminated Basilica Santa Maria Del Mar (which makes a handy landmark to come home to) and listen to the bells peal beginning at 7:00 am. It was romantic and special. The outdoor patio on the 2nd floor has mint and jasmine vines and a small seating area for having coffee or sharing a bottle of wine. The bed was also comfortable, firm without being hard. There is a small kitchen downstairs adjacent to a larger terrace, but since we were in the middle of the best tapas places and bars, why cook? Although we were happy for the refrigerator where we stored fruit and Lambrusco (and jamon!). No point in giving restaurant recommendations, each was better than the next. The shower was modern with plenty of water pressure and enough hot water for us. While we loved our stay, older or infirm renters may want to be aware that the stairs leading to the upstairs can be difficult to climb for those with mobility issues and I would not have small children here. Also, we encountered issues with noise at various points, mostly due to the construction happening in the adjacent apartment. There was loud drilling and hammering during some of the days. Because of the way that the patios jut out, construction workers can easily see into the upstairs and downstairs patio. This was mostly not an issue since we were out a lot during the daytime but you should be advised. Lastly, the apartment instructions come with directions to get satellite TV so we thought we could catch up on US news but we couldn't get it to work. When we finally contacted someone, we were told that the satellite TV was out. We made due with watching Hawaii Five-O dubbed in Catalan and "Barca TV," which is a 24 station dedicated to Barcelona's famous soccer team. In retrospect, it was nice to have a news "black out." The wi-fi worked well. When we called to ask for help or report a problem, the phone was always answered quickly. Our early morning taxi to the airport was arranged for us and the cab arrived ten minutes early, which we appreciated. I would wholeheartedly endorse this special apartment. Don't delay and book! Moltes gracies, Flavia!

Owner's Response: I am very happy that you enjoyed your visit to Barcelona and felt like at home in the apartment. I thank you for all the positive comments you made and hope you will come back in a near future again. Your comments are one of the best received and see that you also noticed about the plants I have in the terrace to make my guest stay near green spots even if we are in the heart of the city. All the best y moltes gracies.

Nel cuore di Barcellona

Owner's Response: Ringrazio molto per aver scelto il mio piccolo ma incantevole attico con due terrazze che sono certamente piacevolissime da riposare dopo aver camminato per Barcellona. Sicuramente cenare o solo riposare con una bibita sará stato un grande relax, se poi avete avuto la fortuna di vedere la illuminazione notturna della Cattedrale é il massimo. sono contenta che avete goduto la Vostra vacanza e spero rivedervi in un altro momento. Grazie mille.

Spending your vacation in this apartment, you will be in the heart of Medieval Barcelona life with people walking up and down anytime day and night but with the security that you can relax and sleep like an angel as the apartment bedroom is in the back of the building and you will not hear any noise. Just you will have during the day the Santa Maria Cathedral bells that really makes you feel you are in a XV century old town.
