About Philip Spark

I'm Philip, I lived in Barcelona for more than 10 years and specially love "La Barceloneta "and the old town with all the pedestrian streets and local life with beach, markets and the cosmopolitan atmosphere.

All my properties are fully furnished and have all the appliances of home! I always enjoy being hospitable with all guests and it is my biggest satisfaction that they enjoy themselves and have a memorable experience in Barcelona. My hobby is urban photography and sea activities. See you soon!

Philip Spark purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Philip Spark chose Ciutat Vella

Despite humble beginnings as a settlement built on top of a medieval area of jousts and celebrations El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city.

El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same line. Las Ramblas and the very center of the city are a pleasant 5 minutes walk away!!!

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is the perfect choice for your stay in Barcelona.

At walking distance of main highlights of the city.

Perfect for big groups to stay together in the same building, or for families, friends, etc...

Enjoy the most authentic area of Barcelona!!!

The location of this apartment is fantastic. It's in a very lively section of town. The metro is about five minutes, La Ramblas about the same and there are cafes and shops literally everywhere. We would stay here again.

bigger than looks on the photos

  • 5 of 5

The house is big and nicely decorated, spacious enough for at least 6 people. With all the facilities in place, we enjoyed cooking at the open kitchen. The house is located in the city centre where it is easily accessible to most sightseeings.
