Location description from owner
The Catalonia region
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia. It is the home of Gaudi's arquitecture. Catalonia is well known for its CAVA and other wines, the embutidos (meat sausages) and many well rooted traditions. Picasso, Dalí, Gaudi, they all left their handprint in Barcelona. In this city you can get everything, sea, mountain, good food, good museums, fabulous arquitecture and extreme nightlife for all ages. The weather is just perfect most of the year round. There are very few days of rain in the year. Around Barcelona you also have el Monasterio de Montserrat where you can go hiking around the beautiful mountain range or you can visit the monks. There are plenty more historic places in the way to Girona. Catalonia has a beautiful coast for those who enjoy the beach which makes it an ideal holiday destination for families with children and all other ages . You will not regret it if you come and be part of the history of this old city.
The flat is situated in El Raval. This area stretches all along the right side of Ramblas going down to the harbour. It is popular for its nightlife, cabarets, restaurants and bars. There are also important monuments to visit like the Esglesia Sant Pau del Camp, el Portal de Sta. Madrona (old city gate) by the arqueological museum. There is a statue of a big cat by Botero which has become an icon. The flat is surrounded by Las Ramblas and the food market La Boqueria, here you can get a nice cheap good quality meal at one of the bars situated within the market.
Las Ramblas are very lively and you can get to the main tourist atractions in a few minutes walk. No need of a car, but there is a Public Parking opposite the apartment. Even though it is in a busy street, you will enjoy a peaceful night sleep.

“Great location with (only) a couple of drawbacks”
Literally dozens of meters from La Boqueria market or the Miro mosaic in the middle of Rambla, the apartment is on the fourth level of an early 20th century, no elevator, building, tucked between small shops and kebab places. It has four bedrooms (one with a bunk bed, one with a double bed and one with two single beds), a large sitting/dining room/ fully equipped kitchen and 1 1/2 bathrooms. Everything is very clean and bright, it has a large screen TV and WiFi internet; you are given for each guest a set of towels and bed sheets that can also be washed in the washing machine. As mentioned there are a lot of touristic places nearby including restaurants, cafes, pubs and supermarkets; you can also walk for 10 minutes to the Carrefour two-floors supermarket on the Rambla. The only three issues I have to mention are: -the narrow stairs to the fourth level which you need to climb a couple of times daily, not to mention carrying the luggage up upon arrival and down on departure, -the lack of central heating; though the living room has an invertor AC and the bedrooms may be heated with electrical heaters, the bathrooms have no heating systems, and -the electrical boiler has a limited hot water capacity so it is challenging for four people to take showers in the morning in a couple of hours time span; I can imagine it is almost impossible for six people who would fill the the appartment at full capacity. Obviously the heating and hot water issues are noticeable during the cold season, I imagine there are far less annoying during the rest of the year; as for the stairs, if you travel with trolleys instead of suitcases and don't mind some daily exercise, does not bother you very much.
Thank you for taking the time to give a review. I feel disappointed that you found those drawbacks. We try our best to make people feel comfortable and we invite our guests to let us know about things they are not happy about while they are in the apartment , so we can try address the issues: 1. Stairs: it is a 200yrs old building and like in many buildings in the area there is no elevator as it is an old construction; we are trying to get permission to install an elevator but space is a problem and the Council is aware of that. The number of steps are described on the listing description, so it shouldn't come as a surprise if the guest has read it prior to booking it. 2. There is no gas in the building due to the fact that it is an old construction and for safety issues we decided to have only electricity; hence there is no central heating but with the correct use of the aircon unit and the portable heaters the apartment reaches the perfect temperature if you are wearing winter clothes (not shorts and T-shirts). We try our best to be environmentally friendly by not heating our homes to the point where it is so hot one has to sit with hardly any clothes on (practise which applies to certain cold Northen countries where electricity is cheaper). The portable heaters can be plugged in the bathroom if needed. 3. Hot water: the tank contains 100 Lts which again is suitable for even up to 6 people with the correct use. Sometimes people touch the temperature settings or set the timer and leave the tank not functioning as it should; perhaps this was the problem;we now have covered the display with paper. If this wasn't the problem, I would say in a normal household not everybody showers at the same time one after another, so if guests like long showers we always advise them to split the shower times so that you don't encounter a potential issue after someone took a long water-wasteful shower. This is also an issue attached to the NO GAS in the building. Once again I apologise if this caused a huge inconvenience to you during your stay. We will get an extra portable electric heater. We thank you for your personal opinion which hopefully will help others in their booking decission, and us to improve our services. Best regards Penélope and family
