About Claudia Silva

I live and work an hour from Barcelona, in the province of Girona. My business keeps me extremely busy so I like to go to Barcelona to unwind and take part in its cultural activities.

Claudia Silva purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Claudia Silva chose Ciutat Vella

I purchased this apartment because of its fantastic location close to the Old Port - from where I often go sailing with my friends - and its proximity to all of the cultural activities I enjoy when I am in the city.

What makes this apartment unique

I can go everywhere by foot: the Ramblas, the Picasso Museum, the Cathedral, Plaza Catalunya, the Opera, the Music Festival Hall, the City Park, Barceloneta, the fantastic markets of La Boqueria and Santa Caterina and a huge choice of tapas bars and restaurants on my doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello, Diana.

We did indeed enjoy our stay in your apartment. The location is perfect, and we literally walked everywhere….bars, restaurants, bakeries, and the wonderful Santa Caterina market. We were there over the Christmas holidays and were able to cook our meals on Christmas Eve and Christmas day in the well equipped kitchen.

Your information about nearby restaurants was helpful, and the ability to use free wi-fi was appreciated.

Your manager Juan did a great job of answering any needs we had doing our stay.

I highly recommend the apartment!

Great Place for family

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in a great location. We loved our family's late dinners in the many outdoor restaurants. The narrow streets fairly near us were very quaint and exotic.

The apartment accommodated our family very well and we enjoyed our stay there.

Best of all was Diana's helpfulness in planning pick ups and departures for us. She responded promptly to all our communications.

Wonderful upscale apartment in fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for four days. Our group included two 20 somethings and their Moms. Everyone loved the apartment. Juan checked us in and made sure we were comfortable. The location is fantastic for just about anywhere you want to go. The apartment is quiet, spotless with upscale amenities. It was hard to leave but we hope to return soon. Communications with owners was top notch as well. Thank you for the memories.

Fabulous start to vacation

  • 5 of 5

There were three couples staying in this absolutely wonderful property. The apartment looked like a model apartment for Restoration Hardware. The location is perfect for exploring Barcelona. Juan the onsite manager was great, friendly and informative. The apartment was stocked with bottled water, coffee, tea, cookies and chocolate. We would recommend this property to anyone going to Barcelona.

Perfect location, Gorgeous home

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more pleased with this home. The location was perfect for walking to most of our destinations and/or the hop on hop off bus tours. Jose was wonderful to deal with, pleasant and very helpful. The home easily accommodated 3 couples and all bedrooms/bathrooms were equally lovely. The living room and kitchen were very nice and had all of the amenities we required. We would highly recommend this rental to others. Barcelona is a wonderful city and this would be a great place to spend an extended stay to the city. Two nights were not enough!

Elegant, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best properties we have stayed in anywhere. Barcelona is a beautiful city and this apartment is a stunner. We were very comfortable with our family of 5 in this 3 bedroom, 3 bath apartment near the Gothic quarter. This was extremely convenient to catch taxis, tourist buses, walk and explore. We loved La Rambla, loved the food, loved everything about it. The hostess, Diana, was SO EXTREMELY HELPFUL. I cannot emphasize this enough. Her communication was unparalleled. Prior to arrival she arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us back to the airport. The return was key because there was a taxi strike that day city-wide and if we did not make these prior arrangements, we would still be in Barcelona! Also, I personally fell ill during this trip and I made use of the doctor recommended by Diana, who came to the apartment and treated me rapidly there. It was extremely helpful and convenient. Juan was a delight, as were our drivers. I cannot recommend this apartment enough. It's so well-appointed, so convenient, so perfect. Don't look anywhere else!
