Overview

About the property

1 bedroom sunny quiet apartment located in the very centre of Barcelona

Charming rustic 1 bedroom apartment in the old quarter Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona. The sun peaks in from early morning till midday as the large windows are facing east, its rather quiet as it doesn't face the street. There is one spacious bedroom with 2 large wardrobes and a double bed, then a common area - sort of living room together with fully equipped kitchen. There is a sofa bed suitable for 2 persons . Guests have access to internet wifi connection.

Located in a wonderful Borne area , full of restaurants, beautiful market where you can buy fresh veggies, fruit, fish, plenty of nice coffee shops for your daily cup of Spanish coffee.

On the same street there is a bike rental store where you can rent a bicycle on daily or hourly basis, they also provide a luggage locker service.

The beach is located about 10min walking from the apartment, along Barcelona port, where you can also find plenty of seafood restaurants with authentic paella dishes served all day long.

Round the corner from the apartment there is famouse plaza and church Santa Maria del Mar, around it you can find tapas places , also restaurants with "montaditos" which is the latest food craze in Barcelona.

For families with children, there is a Zoo located in Parc de la Ciutadella, which is about 10 minutes walking from the apartment towards Arc de Triomf. The park itself is definitely worth a visit, there is a big fountain and lots of space to relax.

About 15min walking you will get to Maremagnum , its a shopping centre, with nice restaurants and views of the port. There is also a Barcelona aquarium in the same block.

Las Ramblas are located also about 15min walking , you can either cut through Barrio Gotico or walk along Paseo Colon - along the port , that way you will get to the bottom part of La Rambla - and the statue of Colón

Perfect location, not perfect flat, strange owner and crazy neighbour

  • 3 of 5

We had a late flight, so we agreed to pay 30 e for late checkin.Agreed that we will call when we will be in taxi on the way to flat.Did that, but owner said she cant come quick sp we need to hang 1 hour somewhere before she picks us. Its good that we were not tired and hungry. She met us in 2 hours after i called. It was around 2 at night. Flat is in a great area. There are a lot of steps to go to reach it. The flat itself is very very basic and crying for renovation. Shower is smallest i have ever seen and water is going everywere.The biggest issue is neighbour. As soon as we started to speak in flat, not even full voice, she started to not, scream and so. She came to our door and we did mistake to open it-she shouted that if we not shut the f*ck up she will call police. Really, we didnt have music, didnt party- just spoke half voice... It happened one more night after, but we didnt open the door and ignored her. Someone was ringing the door bell from down for 10 min non stop after we went to sleep. Was it she or police i dont know...Also, first day coming back to flat we realised that owner was there without telling us she is going to come. Felt bit uncomfortable anout it. I think she could say she is going to come. Also, since we agreed on those 30e for late check in, she said we should leave them on table and she is going to pick it. I did that, but she didnt come few days.After she said she is not in Barcelona and will pick it after we leave ( we met her 10 min away from flat same evening 2 times she said she is out of Barselona;) After we left she said she didnt find money. But at the end she transferred me back all deposit so maybe she found them after. But any way location is great, flat was cheap and if you will be able to ignore crazy neighbour or not to speak at night, dont mind to stay in very old and unrenovated flat, i would recommend it!

Owner's Response: hello Leva... thank you for your review about your stay... I'm sorry for the delay about meeting you on your arrival, but I had another check-in before yours at my husband flat at 23:30 hours the same night and thir flat had an hour fly delayed. Its clearly written in the description in the add there is not elevator in the flat, because in the gothic area of barcelona the buildings were constructed in the 19th century,there were not elevators at that time and very little space to put a new one. I'm afraid Barcelona is not Oslo... there are two very different cities ,flats and houses are equipped in a differently as well. But it's important you keep in mind the price you were paying for your stay in the flat....was very low per night for 3 ppl in the center of Barcelona. When the normal price of a hotel next to the flat is charging 3 times more per night. for 3 ppl. We are very glad to say we have had many happy customers during the whole year... and never had any kind of complaints even less about our neighbors. However we did advise you beforehand, to make sure you guys respect the Community rules of the building and loud noises after 22 hours its a very strict rule,because the flat is located in a private Residential Building and tourist have to follow the rules of the community. If the community rules are not followed.... the neighbors might call the police to make sure everybody is on the same page about respecting the community and neighbors. Like I said before the flat has been rented throughout the whole year mainly to families due to the fact that a lot of people come to Barcelona to party get drunk and do drugs, that's not the kind of customer we like to have in the flat. Regarding the meeting in the apartment, we had agreed I will stop by the flat to pick up the money from the late check-in fee prior nut you might had forgotten. In reference to late Check In fee I had decided not discounted from your deposit due to the problems you guys had with the neighbor during your stay.... hope you understand and best wishes.

Amazing location, but some cons on the apartment

  • 3 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in the Gothic Quarter. It was an amazing location. We were close to tons of shops and some of the best tapa and wine places. However, there are some things you should be aware of about the apartment itself which were not clear in the description.

First, my husband and I were gone for a month traveling around and when we were looking for places to stay, one of our priorities was a washing machine for laundry. While there is a machine, it is out of order indefinitely. Now, I will say that Leonie was able to direct us to a laundromat nearby, but it isn't ideal to have to take your dirty laundry up and down 5 flights of stairs.

Next, it said there was air conditioning on the description. There is a circulation fan, but that is it. We had the windows open the entire time. Luckily, it wasn't very hot when we were there and there didn't seem to be many flying bugs.

Speaking of bugs, it is an old place, so know that there are quite a few bugs crawling around the apartment floor. Cockroaches mostly, but also some beetles were seen daily.

The apartment had a bit of a smell, probably from old plumbing and the shower being too small to contain water. This is the smallest shower I have used in my entire life, and there is no rack to put your toiletries as it shows in the pictures. That would have helped tremendously, as it would have prevented a lot of the water escaping as reached outside to pick up my shampoo, etc.

Now for some positives, as I said the location is amazing. The apartment I take is a great size. My husband and I were able to get some alone time and work done in the bedroom and living room. The kitchen had a large fridge, microwave, toasted oven, and gas camp stove for cooking. Had we not been going out to eat most meals, this would have been very useful. The food was so amazing and inexpensive on Barcelona that we didn't feel the need to cook any meals at the apartment.

Overall, we loved Barcelona and the location of the apartment. However, some things were falsely advertised and the apartment could have been cleaner.

Perfect location, quaint apartment

  • 4 of 5

The property was in El Born, near the Jaume I metro stop. Perfect location to walk everywhere. We were two and it was perfect size for us. The walk up is about 4 flights so be prepared for the stairs. The shower is very small, and water gets all over - the owner explained this to us when we got there. But that didn't ruin the experience. There are lots of windows for light and fresh air. Overall, it was a great stay!

Great location, nice apartment, fabulous owner!

  • 4 of 5

Leonie was so sweet and accommodating! The location was fantastic - easy walk to almost all of the spots we wanted to see, tons of food and drink options all around. Aside from a taxi to Park Güell and Colonia Güell, we were quite fine walking the rest of the stay. Thanks, again! :-)

Great for the price, excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice welcome from Leonie who met us and took us to the flat and told us about the area and Barcelona. The location of the flat is great in the heart of the Medieval quarter and the flat is spacious. It's basic inside and could do with some love but for the price it gave us what we needed, it was light in the mornings and quiet at night.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location in El Born. The owner was great to work with. We easily walked to everything we wanted to see. 87 steps up a steep, winding stairway. Flat was nice sized, very sparse with no view but a good value for the area.

We would go back.
