Rita Fryer purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Rita Fryer chose El Barri Gòtic
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.

Fantastic apartment near everything
This is a very lovely property in Barri Gotic. Immaculate, plenty of supplies, within easy walking to El Born, Eixample, Barceloneta, and nearly every major attraction in the historic zone. The property is perfectly managed with easy Check-in in and check out. We would definitely recommend the apartment.
The flat was wonderful. Very clean with nice furnishings. The kitchen was very well equipped and functional. Good location with an easy walk to most major sights. It was a little noisy at night but was not a problem because the bedrooms were quite and dark with comfortable beds. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this owner. They are very responsive and reliable.
Great Property in the Perfect Location
My wife and I spent 3 nights in this lovely vacation rental. The front room contained a balcony over the local street. It was always interesting to spend time out there watching and listening to locals and vacationers as they passed by. In the evenings the street would liven up and you hear happy voices from people in the local bars. If you wanted to escape the noise all you had to do is close the doors to the balcony.
The bedrooms are all in the rear where it was always quiet and peaceful. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of closet and drawer space for all of our belongings. The kitchen was well appointed. It was pre-stocked with plenty of coffee, which we Americans appreciated very much. Also, there was a bottle of Spanish Red Wine there waiting for us upon arrival.
Sara handled all of our pre-arrival communication flawlessly. She answered all of our questions promptly and even arranged to have a taxi driver waiting for us at the airport when we arrived in Barcelona. As it was our first ever visit to Europe it was quite comforting to be met with someone to get you to destination without issue. Our flight arrived at 8:30 AM and we were allowed to go directly to the vacation rental. This allowed us to get in a mid-day nap which re-energized us for our first evening in Barcelona.
We met Juan upon arrival and he was also very helpful and courteous. He is available at anytime if needed, but fortunately we never needed to contact him. He was there at check-out and allowed us to leave our luggage in the apartment until the afternoon when we were to check into our cruise.
I couldn't imagine a better location as most all of the popular tourist attractions in old town Barcelona are within walking distance and there are countless nearby restaurants offering any kind of dining you could desire. Definitely worthy of 5 stars!
Lovely apt. in Old Town, near everything!
This lovely historic apt. is well designed for travelers! From the beginning, Sara responded promptly & nicely to all questions. Upon arrival Juan warmly greeted us at the apt. where a bottle of wine welcomed us, along with lots of available info. & comfy robes! The location is terrific - so close to the great tapas/restaurants in El Born (try euskal Etxea - tapas & dinner!), taxis, & a convenient & friendly market. It's hard to get lost - head for the water! We (2 couples) enjoyed the spacious living area and loved Barcelona!!
Walking distance to great food, shopping, and pier. Up to date bathroom and kitchen. Spacious apartment with elevator in building. Could only hear street noise if you were in family room, not in bedrooms. Provided recommendations of places to visit and eat in the city.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay - do think of us again the next time you visit Barcelona!
Location, location, location
We stayed at the property with our twin 11 year old boys for a 4 night break and it was absolutely fabulous, the location of the apartment could not be bettered with all the main attractions and restaurants just a few minutes stroll away. The apartment is clean, tidy and has all equipment you need. The WiFi is super fast, so that kept the kids happy! We would not hesitate to book this apartment again when we next return to Barcelona.
