THE R.U.S.T.I.K.A. APARTMENT

Affordable Luxury with Old-World Charm in the Epicenter of Barcelona

Our charming 2 bedroom apartment in Born (right next to Barri Gòtic) comes with EVERYTHING you will need: 2 TV's, iPhone 4, 100 Mb Fiber Optic Internet with Wifi, 1 King Bed, 2 Singles, Universal Power Adapters, 100% Egyptian Cotton Linens, and more!

70 M2 / 750 SQFT RUSTIC SUPER-COZY APARTMENT IN THE CENTER OF THE OLD TOWN

With the look & feel & coziness of a genuine rustic Cabin, using all-original elements of the 200+ year old building it is perched up above on, including early 19th century wooden beams, Catalan vaults, porcelain door knobs, and exposed brickwork, our apartment will be your oasis away from home where you can relax and unwind after a long day of sightseeing around this beautiful Mediterranean city. Old-world charm meets new-world creature comforts!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Located on a small quiet street almost exactly in-between the Gothic Quarter and Born at the epicenter of both districts, you will get the absolute best of both worlds: the history and ancient Roman streets of the Gothic Quarter plus the Medieval and Bohemian charm of El Born. That's why our apartment is literally surrounded on all sides with countless restaurants, bars, and cafes! There's even a restaurant/bar on our street corner, just 5 seconds away! See further below for a list of nearby attractions so you see for yourself just how well-located our apartment is!

FRESH MARKET FOOD AT YOUR DOOR STEP

The massive and famous “Santa Caterina” Fresh Food Market that's been running since the 19th century is at your door step! Between the huge selection of fresh food and our beautiful and fully-equipped kitchen, you won't need to eat out to eat great! We've even included an English-language book with amazing and unique Catalan recipes for you to explore and enjoy! And when we say at your door step, we're not kidding, the Santa Caterina market is only 45m / 150ft from the door of our building!

CREATURE COMFORTS:

2 TV's / 46” + 32” FULL HD TELEVISIONS W/ CABLE

Unwind after a long day of sightseeing with 46 inches of glorious Full HD Cable TV in the Living Room and 32 inches of Full HD Cable TV in the Master Bedroom with English-language Channels including CNN, BBC, Fox News, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Fox Series, AMC, and more! Watch news, TV series, movies, and more all in English! Especially useful for the occasional rainy day or just to unwind after a long day of sightseeing! Several HD channels available as well!

100 MB INTERNET + WIFI + SMART TV

Super-fast FIBER OPTIC Internet with Wifi reaching every corner of the apartment for you to connect all your devices. And if you don't have any internet devices with you, you can use our Smart TV to navigate the Internet, book tours, research restaurants, and more! It comes feature-rich with a full Internet Browser, Apps, and more!

IPHONE 4 W/ LOCAL NUMBER + FREE CALLS + FREE DATA

To help you get around, our apartment comes with a free iPhone 4 you can use fully-equipped with a local number and data so you can connect with local friends, navigate maps, reserve tours and restaurants, and more all on the go without having to spend a single cent! That's right, you will be able to make free local calls, send free SMS/Texts, and use unlimited data completely free of charge on our iPhone 4! The perfect tool for exploring the city!

1 KING-SIZED BED + 2 JOINABLE TWINS/SINGLES + CRIB/COT

Unlike most apartments in the city which have Queen size beds with substandard mattresses, we have a full King Size bed (NOT 2 singles joined!) in the Master Bedroom plus 2 Twin/Single beds in the 2nd bedroom, all with Top-class mattresses from the leading Mattress brand in Spain (Pikolin) so that you rest well and can recharge for your next day. The 2 Twin/Single beds can also be joined to form a 2nd King Size Bed, just let us know we'll leave it all ready for you! We also offer a Crib/Cot made in Germany for your Baby so that they can sleep in peace and you don't have to worry! Just let us know in advance and we'll set it up for you!

100% EGYPTIAN COTTON LINENS & TOWELS

Most tourist apartments in Barcelona use Ikea linens, which use a mixture of polyester and cotton sheets and are mediocre at best. We treat our guests with strictly 100% Egyptian Cotton (percale & combed!) high thread count Linens & Towels for a luxurious feel you won't find anywhere else except expensive hotels! That's right, 100% of our linens and towels are 100% Egyptian Cotton! Did we say luxury?

UNIVERSAL POWER ADAPTERS IN EVERY ROOM

Don't bother bringing or buying power adapters for Spain/EU. We have installed universal power adapters in every single living space (even the kitchen & bathroom!) so that you can plug in ALL your electric appliances no matter where you are! Just make sure they can handle the 220V we have here in Europe!

AND MORE...

Including a HAIR DRYER so you can pack lighter, IRON + IRONING BOARD so you always look sharp, ULTRA-FILTERED WATER through a 6-step Reverse Osmosis advanced mineralization and filtration system so that you never have to buy mineral water, PAID PARKING just a few meters/feet away in case you rented a car, DOUBLE-GLAZED WINDOWS throughout the entire apartment for added comfort and noise-insulation, PROFESSIONAL CLEANING SERVICE to prepare everything for you before your stay so that you find the apartment and linens in perfect conditions (hence the Cleaning Fee), and more!

5TH FLOOR, NO ELEVATOR

Some may consider it a disadvantage, but we consider this a feature! Others pay to go to the Gym, and here you have the Gym come to you for FREE! We're talking 89 steps that will help you burn all your calories from all the delicious Sangria, Tapas, and Jamon Iberico de Bellota that you will be eating and enjoying day in and day out in the many awesome restaurants surrounding our apartment! That's 89 extra reasons to indulge more - GUILT FREE! :)

GUEST ACCESS

Guests will have access to our entire 2 bedroom apartment, plus an iPhone 4 that can be used fully-equipped with a local number and data so that guests can connect with local friends, navigate maps, reserve tours and restaurants, and more all on the go without having to spend a single cent! That's right, guests will be able to make free local calls, send free SMS/Texts, and use unlimited data completely free of charge on our iPhone 4! The perfect tool for exploring the city!

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS

As the owner of Orange Donut Tours, I run 2 Free Walking Tours of the historic Gothic Quarter every day Monday through Saturday, so I am very accustomed to interacting with and helping all visitors of this beautiful city! Of course, when they are guests in my own home, I am even more open to interacting with them and answering any and all questions at ANY time!

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

The location of the apartment could not be more perfect for both new and frequent visitors of the city. If you were to draw a square around the historic Gothic Quarter and the bohemian Born neighborhood, our apartment would be in the exact center of that square! It could not be more central! It also means the apartment is within easy walking distance to 75% of what Barcelona has to offer, with the best of both worlds!
