Ciutat Vella apartment description

Welcome to Barcelona and to Acomodis Apartments!

If you come in November, December and January, please ask for our gastronomic activities we are organizing.


*Price depending on the number of nights, number of guests and season.
*If you contact us we'll answer you with the total price.

More than just a place to sleep! . . . A real factory and a school in the past . . .

We always welcome our guests directly in the apartment.

Come discover why this is a lovely and unique accommodation which will offer you not only a comfortable stay but also a nice experience in Barcelona if you want to be part of the “local scene”. In the past the building was an industrial factory and then a school. Since 1999 there are several apartments in the building with nice neighbours and our apartment is a nice place for our guests who want to visit Barcelona.

Highlights of the area: close to the centre of town, near Las Ramblas, Plaça Espanya and the Magic Fountains of Montjuïc close to Poble Espanyol.

When booking a vacation rental it's important to know who will be available to help if there are any problems with the rental. For this reason we think it's always wisest to work with a local owner / representative that specializes in vacation rentals. We are owners and we also manage other owners’ properties.
Our guests are not charged with a booking fee added on and don’t have to pay the full amount in advance. There is a reservation payment when booking of 30% and the rest can be paid on arrival.

You can send us an e-mail and we will respond quickly to offer this or another of our apartments. If you are a family with children please let us know the age of your children to know if you need baby cot.

OUR GUESTS are mature and young couples, families with older and young children, groups of friends and solo travelers.


Really elegant and comfortable apartment with very high ceilings and big three windows. Bright and comfortable space. It is fully renewed from an authentic loft with great space and luminosity.

It has now one bedroom downstairs and a second floor as another big room with beds for four (a double bed on the left side and two single beds on the right side), comfortable seats and an original hand-made hammock for maximum comfort!. Very well equipped kitchen with a washing machine and a dryer.

The flat is surrounded by semi-pedestrian streets with a relaxed atmosphere. There's a supermarket with fresh products across from the flat. It is a family-friendly place and even toys at hand if you come with your children. The interior has recently been completely renovated and equipped with all new furniture, a practical bathroom, a spacious kitchen including all amenities so guests can take full advantage of shopping for delicacies at the local markets. Furthermore, there’s a separate dining area to enjoy sharing meals, and a living-room with lots of light.

The quality of the accommodation and the impecable personalized service are the advantages that make this property perfect for clients looking for an exceptional holiday right in the historical center of Barcelona.

Parking: there are several parkings nearby. Please let us know if you are coming by car to inform you about parking facilities. It's important to know if you are going to use your car or not during your stay in order to give you an accurate information of the most suitable and economical parking.


The apartment is located close to Las Ramblas but in a quiet area. At only 450 meters you’ll find a long avenue. Paral.lel is an avenue that cuts down from picturesque Plaça Espanya right down to the World Trade Centre at the tip of the port. Poble Sec is an area spreading out from the middle of Paral.lel.

The area is safe and primarily residential but there is much entertainment to be had as well. This includes popular bars, theatre and even a club. However, whilst Paral.lel is a busy thoroughfare during the day, the areas are quiet and just a 10-20 minute walk to the centre of the city and Las Ramblas. A good choice if you want to be central but away from the crowds of tourists that populate more central areas.

Montjuic and Plaça Espanya are also very close by. The event halls and the Palau de Congressos near Plaça Espanya also make the Paral.lel/ Poble Sec area perfect for those in Barcelona on business. Of course, both Plaça Espanya and Montjuic have a lot to offer to tourists and non tourists as well.

There are several restaurants and many cafes which line either side of Paral.lel which also is home to some beautiful building facades, making it popular with visitors.

There are 2 metro stops, aptly named Paral.lel and Poble Sec, they are on the same line and are a stop or two away from Las Ramblas.

If you are looking for a bit of culture then not to worry there is more than enough to be found in Plaça Espanya which has 2 art museums and Poble Espanyol which was built for the 1929 World Fair and is a 'village' constructed from different examples of Spanish regional architecture.

Facilities-wise because the area is residential there is a good range of amenities from pharmacies to supermarkets. Also very near Poble Sec/ Paral.lel is the Mercat Sant Antoni which is a large market selling primarily food products, a good place to have a wander and overload your senses.

Minimum capacity 1/2 people. Regular capacity 3/4 people. Maximum capacity for 5/6 people.

Cleaning fee (apartment, linen and towels). We provide sheets and towels. We take care of it.

Gencat License HUT: 03-2012-0075

1. Tours: for example a visit to La Boqueria, one of the best markets in the world.
2. Food & Drink: for example Tapas and Wine Tour with a Charming Foodie.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We are Elizabeth and Jacob. We speak English, French, Spanish and Catalan. We have always enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and that's why a few years ago we started offering our apartment to people who want to come to Barcelona to have a nice experience. We like what we do!!! :) *I and my husband Jacob are the real owners of the apartment. We are not an agency or representatives of the owners. Then, we are involved and we take care directly with our guests in case of any need or help. *Our apartment is located in a quiet area in the center of Barcelona. It’s not easy to find a quiet place close to everywhere (Las Ramblas, Mercat de la Boqueria, Plaça Espanya, etc.). *Our apartment has a lot of natural light. It has 3 exterior large windows. *We accept credit card except the cleaning fee. I mean we accept credit card for sure. No surprise on arrival. *Our apartment is a legal holiday apartment with license from the Government of Catalunya.

              Why the Owner Chose Ciutat Vella:
              We bought this property because we love Barcelona. We have this property here in Barcelona city center because it's a nice place to stay for a few days as it's calm and comfortable and also it's a great point from where you can have access to the main attractions.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              From our property, which is located in a completely renewed old factory (in the past - nowadays it's a residential building -), you can experience living in an authentic, original, spacious and unique barcelonian loft. As it's in a very quiet street it's very calm. Also, there are plenty of services nearby, like a supermarket of fresh products just a few steps from the location. At only a few steps from the apartment you'll be able to taste the best and delicious 'Churros con Chocolate'. Also, there are no words to explain the great Tapas you'll find at Quimet Quimet at only 2 minutes far from the apartment.
