About Licy and Jacob

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 Gothic Quarter in the historical center. It’s not easy to find a quiet place in the middle of everywhere (Aquarium, Chocolate Museum, Picasso Museum, etc.).

*Our apartment is located in a corner of a building which means there is a lot of natural light. It has 3 exterior balconies.

*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.

Licy and Jacob purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Licy and Jacob chose Ciutat Vella

We bought this property because we love Barcelona.

We have this property here in the Gothic Quarter 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 right in front of the Roman Wall, you can experience living in the origin of Barcelona.

As it's in the corner of a building there is a lot of natural light.

Also, there are no words to explain the feeling of relaxing in the great hammock we have in the apartment. Then, you can take a real Spanish Siesta.

Charming 2nd Floor Apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Licy and Jacob (and Manuel ? who waited for us due to a much delayed flight) for making your apartment available.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights, and as a bonus, having 3 balconies overlooking an active square.

The street door mechanism is a one-off but worked perfectly.

Perfect location in the beuatiful Gothic Quarters.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect apartment for the four of us. Very clean and comfortable. We loved that so many of what we wanted to see was within walking distance. We also loved that at the end of a long day, we could sit for a drink just under our balcony in the little plaza below that had a few restaurants.

Jacob and Elizabeth are wonderful host that we hope to see again next time we are in Barcelona!

Great location in the Gothic Quarter

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be tidy and comfortable, and, as another guest suggested, it was a great place to land at the end of a long day of exploring. But the real bonus is the location. You can walk to so many things (the Cathedral, the Picasso Museum, the Historic City Museum, some of Gaudi's residential masterpieces, La Rambla), and if you don't feel like walking, you can easily hop on the metro. My husband and I rented bikes through the Donkey Republic phone app, and spent two of our days exploring outside of the Gothic Quarter via the excellent bike road. From the apartment, the walk to the beaches (Barceloneta was our favorite!) is a pleasant stroll. You can grab a seat at an outdoor cafe and sip a drink while gazing out on the Mediterranean. If you're done walking for the day, the small restaurants in the square just outside the door are great. We tried them all at one point or another during the week. Around the corner, (entrance is in the alley) is another great restaurant, L'Antic Bocoi del Gotic. It gets busy, so make a reservation. Jacob and Licy, one idea we had, which might come in handy for those arriving on overnight flights, is to offer (for a fee) to pre-stock the fridge with a few essentials (bottled water, fruit, eggs). Also, and this would be for those staying for more than a few days, a clothes-drying rack would come in handy. But these aren't complaints, just suggestions. I've traveled to Rome, Florence, Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam in the last two years, and nothing compares to Barcelona! It was absolutely amazing. I would happily rent from Jacob and Licy again!

Superb Location and Efficient Property!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this property was great! The location was perfect! We especially liked the little plaza the apartment was in, because there was a few restaurants and a mojito bar! The owner met us in a timely fashion, and was cordial and efficient. My only request would have been for more towels. We would definitely recommend this property.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasant 4-night stay here. The apartment is as described, was a good value, and perfectly fine. With this flat it is all about location! You are steps away from the action of Barcelona and it is perfectly centered to head off in various directions. We loved having the double-doors open and basking in the early evening sunlight each day on the Juliet terrace, while watching the tourists groups go by on their Segways and the folks sitting at the cafe tables below. At times it was quite entertaining with buskers of various genres singing for the tables. With the doors closed at night, we found the noise-level to be fine, even during weekend nights where the cafes stay open until 3am. Note: this is not a glam place, but it is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the young woman who met us at the exact time was a pure delight and offered us many suggestions for sites to see. The hammock could use an upgrade, the couch/hide-a-bed has seen better days, the coffee maker could be better, and the bathroom needs a reno, but for two couples or a small family, seeking a decent place to stay in the heart of Barcelona, it's a keeper. Yes, the ancient, steep stairway is screaming for a coat of paint, but honestly, it almost added to the charm of the place. When first arriving it is important to note that it is the old wood door with #2 marked above it, and not the doors that overlook the cafes. We also liked using the big old key to turn the old door's lock (something different in this modern world). Despite it being tucked away from any main drag, we always felt safe accessing it during day or night. The locals seem to like to hang out on the wall near the cafes, and there are small businesses working out of the garage-bay doors during the day, which all add to the intrigue and local charm of the place. Although it is not high-end, it is functional and fine, we would certainly stay here again.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this charming apartment. It was close to the metro station so we could go anywhere. And walking distance to the Cathedral, La Rambla and the market. It was so nice to have a place to come back to and relax and not feel like we were on top of each other.
