- english, french, spanish, portuguese, italian, norwegian, Catalan
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.
ACOMODIS purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why ACOMODIS 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.
What makes this Apartment unique
From our property, which is located in a completely renewed building, you can experience living in an authentic, original, spacious and unique barcelonian apartment. 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 several restaurants at only 2 minutes far from the apartment.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
3-night stay in the Gothic Quarter
Jacob accommodated our early check-in request and shared his recommendations for local sights and restaurants. The apartment is on one of the lesser traveled streets in the Gothic Quarter and only 1 block away from the harbor front main road. Can get noisy outside at night due to a few tapas bars on the street. Great central location though.
Nice host, worn and loud apartment
Communication with the host and check in were great and the property was in a central location. The condition of the property was quite worn and all the furniture and bedding had seen better days. The listing had been removed from VRBO prior to our stay, so we could not go back and look at the pictures to compare what the property looked like when it was listed compared to what it was like during our stay. The property is extremely loud as there are several bars and restaurants right outside. It wasn't possible to get to sleep on Thurs-Sat nights until around 3:30 in the morning. Although the host was very kind and helpful, the property itself fell short of our expectations and we would not stay there again.
Hello, Adam, thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are glad to know communication was great and you liked the central location of our “ACOMODIS” apartment. A few days before your arrival we put a new sofa bed and a new heater. The listing was not removed from vrbo. It just expired and had to be reactivated. That’s it. The pictures correspond to our “ACOMODIS” apartment since we started advertising it a few years ago. The only recent difference was a new sofa and a new heater when you arrived to our apartment. Barcelona is not a quiet city if you want to stay close to the main attractions, nice restaurants, cafes, the beach, Las Ramblas, etc. Anyway, we're completely sure you could find the perfect place for you in another of our “ACOMODIS” apartments we have in Barcelona according to your needs. It's a shame the location didn't meet your expectations. It was a pleasure to welcome and help you with your stay! Thank you again. Greetings!!
Perfect location for Bario Gottico
This apartment is in a perfect location for exploring the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Jacob was very good and helped us out when we needed a couple of favors. Check in and out was simple. To be fair to the other potential renters I have to give a completely honest review. It is a very noisy area at times. There is a bar downstairs to the left that opens late and has people outside right under your front window until at least 3am. It is a window not a balcony as I thought originally. The bedroom is in the back so with all doors and windows closed and the fan on it isn’t too bad. Possibly a younger couple looking to take advantage of the ample bar scene would enjoy this. The bed in the main bedroom is just a mattress on slats. Not very comfy especially for someone with a bad back. However some people would not mind this. The apartment is older. On a block that does not get much sunlight due to the narrow street and the height of the buildings. If you’re looking for a bright sunny apt this may not be it. That being said, the water pressure is very good. There is a small kitchen although we did not make use of it. All in all it was a positive experience mostly for the hospitality of the owner and the great location.
Best Kept Secret in Barcelona
Jacob and Elizabeth were very friendly and nice from the very beginning of the process. This was my first time using VRBO and Jacob couldn’t have been any nicer taking the time to explain where we were on a map and points of interest. The apartment itself was as advertised and in the perfect location for everything that we wanted to do. I will definitely be happy to come back here again!
Hi, Patricia. Thank you for your review. What a pleasure to know that the apartment and the location were to your liking. For us, it was very nice to welcome you and make your stay in our "ACOMODIS" apartment a nice experience. We are happy to know that our attention made this first opportunity a remarkable moment. Hope you have fallen in love with Barcelona as much as we. Until the next time, kind regards! :)
Very interesting area
Loved how we could walk everywhere from this location. Enjoyed Barcelona very much. Place was clean and easy to find. Host was terrific. We had trouble sleeping due to the noise, so I would say if you are a light sleeper you may find that this location is not for you.
Patricia, thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are happy to know you were in love with the location of our place. Your suggestions are much appreciated! It was a pleasure to welcome and host you in our apartment. Thanks again for your kind words. Warm regards from “ACOMODIS” Apartments. Until the next time. :)
Great apartment, near to wonderful sites!
Wonderful host and a fabulous location. Lovely apartment, so easy to explore Barcelona from here. Great host. I highly recommend and would stay there again.
That's just great, thank you for the review, Marianne. I'm so happy that you liked the location of our “ACOMODIS” apartment and that it made it easier to visit our city. Your comments are much appreciated! My pleasure to host you all! Cheers!
