Great apartment of 70 sqm with natural light consisting of 2 suites (one with a double bed and the other with 2 comfortable single beds) with ensuite bathroom, 4 exterior balconies, living room with 1 sofa comfortable double bed, kitchen and 2 full bathrooms with shower. The apartment is in a typical old building of the Gothic Quarter. Both have been recently renovated. Modern and nicely decorated apartment combines perfectly with the old style of the building. The building is accessed by the Ripoll street but the apartment and the main facade facing the Plaza dels Peixos (the Fish). A curious fact that the building is this apartment, works still the oldest pharmacy in the city. The apartment is completely exterior with four balconies overlooking the street, is a 3rd floor with natural light. In his rehabilitation all the original architectural elements were respected. Parking close to the apartment (Avinguda de la Catedral). Note: There is parking closer still, but for the first day is easier to get to the Cathedral Av.. The building where the apartment is located is right next to the Gothic cathedral of Barcelona, just 500 meters from the port and its adjacent beaches. Because of its unique situation is not necessary to use any transport, being 5 minutes walk from the Ramblas and Plaça Catalunya. Most museums and major attractions are within walking distance, however the main bus lines and Metro are located right next to the apartment.

Great apartment in a fantastic location
Quite hard to find but once you do it's a great location. Lots of narrow steps to climb up to apartment but worthwhile, great views.
The apartment was in an excellent location. It was pleasant and in nice condition. The little kitchen served very well for breakfast and coffee breaks. Not much noise and a great view of old Gothic building and the back wall as seen from outside was a bit of Roman aqueduct. Easy walk to Las Ramblas, Plaza Catlunya, Garcia, Cathedral and the Picasso museum. We were right in the middle of the action. Lots of little shops for cava, bread and cheese near by with a Carrefour on Las Ramblas and Mercado Santa Catherina near by for easy shopping. Tapas were every where to keep you going. We travel light so we had no issue with the lack of elevator. I could not figure out how to turn the stove vent on or use the washing machine, so some instructions on those would have been good, otherwise I can think of no other feedback. One of my coworkers had stayed here in the summer so the space came with a recommendation.
Nice location close to the sights in Barcelona. Felt a bit conned by the pictures. 1 apartment was 2
We had the impression that we had rented one apartment, not 2 small ones! Nice location though. Still haven`t got our deposit back 1,5 months after the trip to Barcelona.

Apartment house located in a quiet area of the Gothic Quarter near Las Ramblas. The Gothic area is a maze of streets, alleys and squares full of life. In its corners medieval city history was written. Stroll through the Gothic Quarter is an unforgettable experience. All the beauty of the gothic architecture is around: The Cathedral, the churches of Santa Maria del Mar and Santa Maria del Pi, Plaza del Rei with Tinell Hall, the Call (former Jewish quarter), the museum Picasso and many other buildings. The oldest restaurants and bars of great tradition is mixed with new modern design. Next to fashion shops open their doors and craft shops selling antique furniture and objects. In the vicinity it has 3 subway lines through which can quickly reach the other key locations of Barcelona. We own a century-old apartment building in the historic center next to the Cathedral, just 5 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas and the Picasso Museum, and 10 minutes from the best beaches of Barcelona. The apartments have all comforts, ADSL-WIFI access throughout the building and air conditioning with heat pump. We also have a solarium terrace on the roof of the building with views of the cathedral of Barcelona. The area is quiet and pretty, with beautiful historic buildings and next to the main shopping street of the city.
