About Victor Bello

I am from Barcelona. Photographer. I live and work here. I love traveling around the world. Both for living and traveling i love (I need it!!) to see the sun and the sky from the place i am staying. Open views please. Most of my apartment are attics with amazing views over the city or to some open nice places. I enjoy very much music. Now i am addicted to Spotify: it is like traveling around the world! When i travel, specially if i stay long, i like to have access to spotify and other Internet tools. That's why all my apartments have free Wifi connection and computer with web cam.

Victor Bello purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Victor Bello chose El Raval

The open big space with 3 small balconies and a nice window will give you a relaxing feeling of pleasure. Its wood floor, its big bed, NON Ikea forniture, new kitchen and bath, etc... All ready for you to feel in a sweat room of a 4/5 stars hotel. Trust me. But with the advantage of being in an apartment where you can enjoy cooking, you can be yourself without being disturb in the morning.

Also the neighborhood is ideal to discover the city. In center town but not too much touristic. And only 5' walking from Las Ramblas and Palau Guell

Lovely studio in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful studio...quiet, centrally located, accessible to shops and markets. We walked to the Barri Gotic and El Born districts quite easily. The neighborhood is vibrant and diverse. There is a wonderful vegetarian restaurant situated beneath the apartments which serves a delightful Vermut. Our hostess was courteous and informative. We will definitely return if a Barcelona stay is in our future travel plans.

Wonderful stay - Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the apartment, loved the location. Couldn't have asked for more! Sat on the tiny balcony to watch the street life and enjoy wine and snacks we picked up from here and there. Centrally located, but you need to make sure the taxi takes you there instead of telling you they cannot drive to that location. They can.

Property is as advertised and well equipped kitchen

  • 4 of 5

We loved the morning light and looking out on the trees with the birds singing in the morning. The sound proof new windows keep out the restaurant and plaza noise below, but prevent having windows open at night. AC very good. i liked the local shops that are closer and cheaper than the Boqueria. Suggest people use the St Antoni Metro as closer than the Rambla. The term balcony refers to windows that open to the floor for good ventilation, not something you can sit on. Be very clear on getting into the apartment. The person we were to meet came late and waited for us INSIDE the apartment. We expected someone outside and did not know the apt. number. Finally called the owner and got it resolved. Also the stove is very difficult to turn on and you must press the glass top exceedingly hard (new stove type to us) and the washing machine needs a manual but works fine once you figure it out. I hope the outer blinds will be restrung with new cords so they can be raised and lowered. Lots of good storage space, good lighting, supplies everything. Highly recommend.

Outstanding Location for those who like to walk

  • 5 of 5

We love to be able to get up in the morning and just go. This place was perfect, you could walk any direction and find something fun. The neighborhood was full of character and great people. The apartment was perfect for the 2 of us. We had enough room to spread out and loved having a little kitchen since we had leftovers from great restaurants more than once. Apartment is very bright during the day bed is firm and we slept great. It is on a very popular square. Everyone seems to love handing out there until late at night. We thought that was very cool.. Yes, it is a bit noisy so we slept with earplugs and have no complaint. Thank you Victor for all you help and suggestions while we were there and for the lovely bottle of wine. We did enjoy going across the street to Sexy Wines and having a glass more then once.

Good!

  • 4 of 5

Very convenient! This place is right in the middle of the Raval district. It does get noisy at night (till about 1 or 2 in the morning), so if you're a light sleeper, this may not be your best spot. It is close to Las Ramblas and the open air market. The place was clean and well supplied; appreciated the bottle of wine and the coffee!

Flor was great!

Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Barcelona Airport and rang the contact as advised. She informed us the owner was waiting at the apartment and that there had been a problem with the plumbing! This was a bit worrying.

However when we arrived at the apartment Victor met our cab and apologised profusely because his apartment was not fit to take us. He had called an emergency plumber to fix the broken pipe but he was unable to have the repairs completed before our arrival as quoted.

Once this was confirmed Victor then set about finding us another apartment. He came with us in the cab, took us into our new apartment and showed us how everything worked. He had done wonders finding us a beautiful apartment in such a short time. The apartment he found was in a great location, really clean, well laid out and equipped and suited us perfectly. He gave us advice about some great restaurants and sightseeing and checked with us after the first day that everything was right for us. He coul not have been more apologetic and was obviously really concerned for us. He is a lovely young man and I am sure that even though we didn't get to stay in his apartment anyone staying there will be very well looked after. We also appreciated the lovely bottle of wine he had arranged for us.

Thank you again for your kindness Victor you helped to make our stay in Barcelona a great one!
