From there, you can take the cable car to Montjuic - location of the Spanish Village and the Miró Foundation - for amazing views of Barcelona and the port.

Walk the other way and you are in front of Barcelona's medieval cathedral and near to Plaza Catalunya. The Picasso museum is a few minute's walk, in the heart of The Born. Wander along to The Ramblas and soak up the colors, sights and aromas of the famous La Boquería market - a great place for lunch. A few minutes further on brings you to the MACBA, Barcelona's museum of Contemporary Art.

About Rita Fryer

Pleased to meet you! We love the location of our apartment - right in the heart of the Gothic Quarter - walking distance from just about everything. We have lived in Catalonia for over twenty years. Rita spent 20 years in the hotel business worldwide and understands what travellers want. John is an international art consultant. We want to help you enjoy this wonderful city by making you feel right at home in very comfortable surroundings.

Rita Fryer purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Rita Fryer chose Ciutat Vella

Barcelona is such a great city! We both visited Barcelona before we met and had an instant love affair with the city and its people. We wanted to buy an apartment which we could use to explore Barcelona and experience the sights, sounds and aromas that make Barcelona such a great place to visit. There is no place so emblematic than Barcelona's Gothic Quarter and we chose an apartment that gives us the comfort of home within walking distance to all the sights in the historic part of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

We love strolling over to the famous Ramblas and visiting the incredible La Boqueria market which recently celebrated its 150th anniversary - unique in all of Europe. Some of our favorite restaurants are just minutes away by foot or taxi. We love walking along the boardwalk on the Barceloneta beach at sunset.

The condo was spacious and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

There was some noise from the street at night but the bedrooms are in the back so it never bothered us.

Truly AMAZING.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is better than the photos. It's HUGE, gorgeously decorated, has what appear to be brand new appliances, and anything you would need during your stay. We stayed here with 5 adults and had plenty of room. The living room balcony doors were constantly open looking out onto the gothic quarter streets. The street is loud at night but all of the bedrooms are in the back of the apartment away from noise. We loved the gothic quarter and visited multiple tapas restaurants and bars during our stay. The apartment is also close to the beach and easily accessible to other areas of the city. Juan and Sarah were extremely accommodating and booked us taxis to and from the airport. We really could not have asked for a better experience and will recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Barcelona (and hopefully stay again in the future!). THANK YOU!

Ideally positioned very well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

The location on a tiny side street was perfect to walk to most of the places we wanted to see. Lots of bars and restaurants very close by and many little supermarkets meant everything we needed was close at hand if we didn't feel like venturing very far. Kitchen very modern with great appliances and supplies. .

Lovely comfortable beds, loads of lovely towels and toiletries. We were even left a delicious bottle of wine. Taxi pick up and return to airport on time and exactly as quoted We were two couples who would highly recommend this rental.

Can't imagine a better place in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! Couldn't be happier about our stay! Everything was exactly as advertised! We had five people and we had plenty of room and weren't bumping into each other! Loved the location! So much to see and do! Close to all major "attractions" and the various metro stops! Owners and Juan were a joy to work with on making the trip one to remember! I would give this place 10 stars if I could! I am already looking at other dates where we can rent it again! So much to see and do, couldn't do it all on this trip! Thanks for making this trip such a wonderful memory!

Most Enjoyable Eperience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment exceeded expectations! It was perfect for five (5) adults for our 20-day stay. The apartment was cozy with all updated appliances, lighting (throughout) and a well-equipped kitchen. The icing on the cake for us was that we were in our favorite districts (Gothic and Born). And the fact that it was almost across the street from the beautiful marina, where we spent many afternoons, was another added plus!. On top of this, we were attended timely and courteously by the Administration Assistants, Juan and Sarah. We'll be back!!
