This quirky retro apartment is situated in a fantastic location however everything in the apartment is old and showing real signs of wear. I'm sure the photos were taken 20 years ago. Aside from everything being old the bedroom was situated at the end of the apartment which meant it was very quiet in the evening. However, the bed was a foam mattress and had a mattress protector on it which heated us up and made crinkly noises when you moved. It was also hot with no a/c. The bedding and towels etc had also seen better days. Pillows were terrible. If you are going to rent at least have decent pillows. We had booked and paid to stay in the apartment for a week, and we did not see or hear from the owner. When we arrived we were greeted by a delightful woman who was a friend of the owner. It was the worst accomodation booked in our 18 days in Spain. Would not recommend.
This is a fantastic, unique apartment right in the centre of the Gothic Quarter. There's everything you need, and the host was super helpful and friendly, and very accommodating. You can walk to loads of things from here, including the beach and Plaça de Catalunya, so you can get to anywhere in the city really easily. The apartment is ideal for a family of 3 (two adults and a child), and it was the perfect place to experience bustling Barcelona. The little shop in the courtyard seems to open all the time and has all the basics you need. There are plenty of other shops and amenities nearby. Although you are right in the middle of everything, the bedroom are right inside this old building with thick walls, so it's really quiet when you want to sleep. The tapas restaurant two door away is fantastic, and there is also a lovely bakery on the same street.
Had the most amazing stay thanks to Reyes the most wonderful host. Apartment was lovely and enjoyed the quirkiness. Great central location, yet quiet, allowing us the opportunity to enjoy all the amazing things Barcelona has to offer. Check out the Sensi restaurant on the doorstep offering the most mouthwatering tapas. Many Thanks again Reyes, would highly recommend to anyone for a stay in Barcelona
We had a very pleasant stay in Reyes apartment, she is an excellent host and the location is the best you could ask for, walking distance from the main attractions, the place itself is very confortable just the way it looks in the pictures.
We had a wonderful stay. The location was perfect and close to everything. A short walk to the subway. Everything in the apartment was clean, easy to use, and functioning. There was minimal noise from the street below with the window open, closed it was quiet and the bedroom was very quiet. The apartment manager was polite and helpful. We would stay here again.
We were very pleased with our choice to stay in this apartment. The apartment is exactly what the pictures depict, nothing fancy, but comfortable, and in the middle of all of the history, shopping and dining of the gothic quarter. Also close to all transportation options. Communication with the host, Reyes, was clear and complete. She also delighted us by stocking the refrigerator with some breakfast supplies, cold water and a few beers. We were not expecting this and really appreciated it. As others have posted, the street noise rises into the living room, but open up the big windows and enjoy the fun! When time to sleep, the location of the master bedroom is in the back and completely quiet. In the courtyard is a grocery store, pharmacy, and fresh juice bar. Coffee shops, bars and restaurants are just steps away.
Last april we stayed in the lovely apartment of Reyes Torio. We felt back to the 70's ;-) We arrived very early in the morning and we're lucky that she already cleaned the apartment and we could get in. The apartment is in the centre of Barca. Close to the beach en close to the Ramblas. Go if you can!
