The area surrounding the apartment:
Located right in the middle of Barcelona city only a 150 meters from Plaça Catalunya and Las Ramblas, making it accessible to all areas of interest in Barcelona such as the Gothic Quarter, and the very trendy El Borne. At walking from the apartment you will find the superb food and produce market called La Boqueria on Las Ramblas, an absolute must for any visitor to Barcelona.
Walk out the front door of the apartment building and you have a shopping experience just waiting to happen all around you. Paseo de Gracia, about 3 mins walk, alone will keep you busy for hours. Here you will also find Gaudi's famous masterpieces La Pedrera and Casa Batllo. Walk to Portal d'Angel and continue down to Portaferrisa where there are more stores for you to explore. A short 5-10 min walk will take you into El Borne one of of Barcelona's oldest neighborhoods, an intricate maze of plaças and squares all interconnected by narrow, medieval streets where you will find lots of trendy boutiques and great bars, cafes and restaurants. Another option for the visitor staying at this great Barcelona apartment is to visit the Gothic quarter situated right in the heart of the old town, about a 8-10 mins walk from your front door. The area is a body of interconnecting narrow, cobble stoned streets where you can potter around for hours and explore the shops and restaurants.

The location of this apartment is amazing for visiting Barcelona and I would highly recommend it. Lovely apartment and very spacious, clean and modern. Horacio was very helpful both before our visit providing us with lots of information about Barcelona and when we arrived made us feel very welcome. Thank you so much - we will never forget our weekend in the lovely city. Kim x
After a wonderful stay only remains for us to thank you wholeheartedly for Horacio. He is a very friendly, open-minded hosts. The apartment is comfortably furnished and was very clean. The functionally equipped kitchen has made us cooking easy. We will come back in any case.
Nach einem wunderschönen Aufenthalt bleibt uns nur, uns von ganzem Herzen bei Horacio zu bedanken. Er ist ein sehr freundlicher, aufgeschlossener Gastgeber. Die Wohnung ist gemütlich eingerichtet und war sehr sauber. Die funktional ausgestattete Küche hat uns das Kochen leicht gemacht. Wir werden auf alle Fälle wieder kommen.
Horacio was very responsive and the flat well located. However there were some downsides as the toilet smell, the cockroach walking around and worst of all Horacio's agent trying to keep the 300 euros caution (Caution I was not aware of) to cover for a fake fine because of the noise (he said the police fined him for 900 euros but nobody came). He finally gave us the money back when we tried to call the police to know more about the fine. Of course 13 people in a flat cannot whisper and he should consider renting it to a familly instead.
Great apartement, perfect location and a very helpful and friendly host!
Next time in Barcelona definitely again with Horacio.
Thank you again!
