A large and very spacious apartment in the heart of Barcelona Old Town

This wonderful apartment is in a great location just off Calle Farran. It is recently refurbished, situated in the very heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella and has lots of warmth and character which makes it a great choice for your visit to Barcelona. With bars, clubs and hundreds of restaurants right on the doorstep of the apartment, you do not need to go far to enjoy all that the old town of Barcelona has to offer. A holiday stay at this convenient accommodation will make your adventures around Barcelona easy to plan.

This large five bedroom apartment is located in the Gothic district, just a short five minutes' walk will take you to many of the main attractions of Barcelona city, Las Ramblas, the Gothic Cathedral and the very trendy El Borne. It is very tastefully decorated with a lots of space, 140 square metres, with five bedrooms, two bathrooms and AC/heating. This great, modern and central apartment will allow you to enjoy a wonderfully relaxing time during your visit to Barcelona.

The area surrounding the apartment :

The Da Vinci apartment is situated right in the heart of the old town in Barcelona, the Barrio Gotic or Gothic Quater. It is situated very close to one of Barcelona's most distingushed - but least visited - Gothic churches, the Santa Maria del Pi. The quiet and attractive Plaça del Pi in front of the church is filled with bars and restaurants with outside seating where a cup of coffee goes down well while watching the quirky street performers who congregate to entertain the visitors most days. The area itself, which surrounds the apartment, is a body of pedestrianised interconnecting narrow cobble stoned streets where you can wander around aimlessly for hours imagining how it was back in medieval times. Other areas of interest within walking distance from the apartment are the famous Las Ramblas, the Liceu opera house, the Barcelona City Hall in Plaça Jaume, which is three minutes' walk from the apartment as well as the remains of the old Roman Walls coupled with many more treats from Barcelona's ancient and medieval past. Las Ramblas is another short four minutes' walk from your door, as is the wonderful Gothic Cathedral and the very trendy El Borne area which is full of fantastic one off boutiques!

The apartment:

The Da Vinci apartment is located on the first floor, (in reality a second floor)with NO elevator, in a building with lots of character. The apartment is very large and spacious with five bedrooms and many original art works, specifically made for the Da Vinci, hanging throughout the apartment.

The main bedroom, with a double bed, can be found down the passageway featuring lovely mosaic tile details which combined with the rich dark chocolate brown hardwood floor makes a great feature; this fantstic hard wood floor can be found throughout the apartment. The second, third and fourth bedroom all have two single beds and wardrobe space for your clothes. The fifth bedroom has just one single bed. Each room comes with AC/heat depending on what time of the year you are choosing to visit Barcelona. All the bedrooms have been very nicely decorated.

The living/dining room is a wonderfully inviting area; the focal point is shared by the "L" shaped cream sofa with plenty of cushions and the fantastic mosaic tile design in the centre of the hard wood floor; the area is inviting and relaxing - perfect for watching some TV or a movie on the DVD or just listen to some music. In this area you can also find the dining table and chairs. The kitchen is modern and equipped with pots, pans, sivlerware, plates, cups, glasses, toaster, juicer, fridge, washer, etc.

Both bathrooms come with shower units, toilet and sink, and of course towels, as well as fresh linen, are provided for your stay in the Da Vinci apartment.

This incredible apartment is perfect for a large family group or friends looking for an ideal place to rest in the middle of Barcelona Old Town!

It would be helpful if the "front" bathroom shower fixture was replaced. About 50% of the time this fixture did not allow hot water to flow in this shower. This did not happen in the back bathroom, so we know it is not the hot water heater. It would be quite nice if the bedrooms could be furnished with a mirror, so that the women could put on their makeup and do their hair in the bedrooms instead of taking up the time in the bathrooms to do this.

Friendly RentalsThank you very much for your feedback, we will look into it.

The apartment was in a good area with plenty of space for our group.
The floors!!! The floors were very loud and squeaky. It made it difficult to put our kids to bed and move around without waking them. It was also difficult to move around without waking adults in the morning.

Location was fantastic, as was the size of the apartment. Beds were very comfortable and having air conditioning was invaluable. Two bathrooms also made things much easier given the size of our group.
Would've preferred an actual oven as opposed to a combination microwave and the gas hob didn't have an ignition switch, meaning we had to use a lighter and regularly burnt our fingers. Door lock was also very tricky and could often take a couple of minutes to get to work - we would suggest replacing that asap.

Character and good location. Clean and well presented.
Boiler for hot water was temperamental and whilst it was reported on first day and apparently fixed it was not consistent with providing hot water especially for the showers. There was a limited supply of wine glasses and tumblers for a party of 9 adults. Whilst not problematic for us tv and air conditioning controls required new batteries.
