For those who want to be right amongst the action, this apartment is perfectly located on Barcelona’s most famous street – Las Ramblas boulevard. This 1.2 km pedestrianised stretch divides the Old Town from Placa Catalunya right down to the water’s edge, giving you easy access to the city’s main attractions. Watch the passing parade of performance artists, locals and visitors from the communal balcony of this 190 sq apartment, before retreating into one of the 6 private bedrooms available for a respite from the busy city streets.
Recently modernised, all 6 bedrooms are private and individually lockable doubles, with common shared facilities of 2 toilets, 2 showers, kitchen and a living area which opens out to the Las Ramblas via a balcony.
Relax with your flatmates in our social living space, newly furnished with a comfortable sofa and TV. Write notes to your friends on the communal blackboard wall or share a glass of wine watching the world go from the balcony. There is a separate laundry room with a washing machine and a dryer which means no waiting for someone to finish their shower to clean your clothes.
You could not get more central than this perfectly located Las Ramblas apartment, both for public transport and city sights! The historic heart of Barcelona, Las Ramblas divides the Old Town into the touristy Gothic Quarter on one side and the shabby chic area of El Raval on the other.
Along this buzzing tree-lined boulevard, packed with outdoor cafes and a carnival atmosphere, are a number of key Barcelona attractions. From Miro’s mosaic under your feet, to the famed Liceu Theatre and vibrant La Boqueria food market selling everything from black eels to freshly squeezed juices, you won’t need to wander too far from the apartment for a taste of Spanish life.
A few streets east, and you’ll find yourself in the heart of the Barri Gothic – a labyrinth of small streets and picturesque squares full of churches, cafes, bars and shops. Sitting on top of the remains of Barcelona’s Roman origins, this is perfect place for history buffs and culture critics to soak up the city’s past and present.
EAT: Satan’s Coffee Corner: Wondering where to get decent coffee in Barcelona? Look no further than Satan’s Coffee Corner, in a hidden corner of the Gothic neighbourhood. With floor-to-ceiling windows, and simple, modern décor, this is a bright, airy and welcoming café with great coffee and delicious quick bites.
SHOP: L’Arca: Banys Nous, a street well-known as a go-to destination for antiques, is also where you can find the beautiful dress shop/theatrical wardrobe L’Arca (formerly L’Arca del Avia). From thirties flapper dresses to art nouveau jewellery and lace wedding gowns, the store is a carefully curated mix of vintage pieces. It has also attracted attention for hiring out costumes for blockbusters Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Perfume and Titanic, some of which can be seen displayed at the front of the shop.
DO: Museu Frederic Mares: This museum-sized cabinet of curiosities contains a truly unique collection of objects, from hatpins to crucifixes to baroque art, hoarded carefully over time by sculptor and traveller Frederic Mares.
