About the property

nice and central apartment for 4 person, close to Ramblas

The apartment is located in the city center, in the picturesque district of Sant Antoni market whose centenary will see from the balcony.

The area is excellent for exploring the city. Due to its strategic location, you can go either walking or in the countless transportation (bus, metro, bike, etc) to places, neighborhoods and most emblematic monuments of the city.

In just ten minutes walking, you will be in Las Ramblas, Plaza of Spain, the Passeig de Gracia, Rambla de Catalunya, Montjuic, Plaza Catalunya, the Gothic Quarter, the Raval, the gothic, or Maremagnum, among other examples.

Taking the subway home at 50 meters you will find in just 15 minutes at the feet of the Holy Family.

Definitely the best place to see the city.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely time in Barcelona with my husband and 7 year old. He loved the little bed in the loft. Barcelona very busy, but a lovely city. Struggled to find anything to eat before 8pm, but think this is Spanish culture. The doorway and stairs up to the apartment looks a bit unsavoury and dingy, however the apartment is nice and very safe. Lots of steps up to apartment, which wasn't a problem for us, but may be for an older person and the railings quite short, so make sure children don't lean over. Manuel (although we never met) was a lovely host and offered to book a table for dinner and sent directions to the good restaurants and even ordered us a taxi to the airport. If you want a real Spanish experience stay here. Bed lovely and comfy and shower was hot with lots of power. The apartment was clean and compact with a heater for the cold wheather. Small shop two doors up and plenty of cafes for pastries. Apartment really close to everything. We booked open top tour for two days and also walked to the gothic quarter which was fantastic. Loved our little break.

Sweet apartment in La Ravel

  • 4 of 5

This was a cute little apartment. We were adult mother and son, so the floor plan was great. A balcony gave us views of the street and Christmas lights. The loft (second bedroom) was reached by a ladder, so needs someone young. We really enjoyed the area, with many great coffee bars and restaurants. Close to subway and walking distance to Ramblas and Gothic neighborhood. Especially recommend La Boqueria, a huge food court, and Agost, a nearby restaurant with a cocktail master at the bar. Negatives were two flights of stairs, a somewhat seedy hallway and a very small shower.

Sant Antoni Rocks

  • 5 of 5

Manuel's little apartment is perfect to truly get to know Barcelona! He is a great host. The apartment is all you need. The neighborhood is outstanding! My husband and I had a wonderful stay in mid-November. The neighborhood around the apartment is wonderful. There are a ton of restaurants, mercados, bars, and shops. The prices are about a third the price you'll pay around the tourist areas. Everyone is extremely nice. My husband and I counted it up between us and decided that Barcelona is the nicest city we've ever visited. Manuel's apartment is the perfect place to base yourself. A tip: take the 24 bus up to Park Guell. It's worth it and while the bus takes 50 mins, it offers an interesting and cheap view of the city! Thank you!

Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful break in Barcelona. The Wood House is in a fantastic central location, we have walked miles, although the Metro stations are close by, you see so much more by foot. Manuel was at the apartment waiting for us on our arrival which was really nice. Thank you for the information and friendly welcome we really appreciated it. We will definitely be recommending this apartment to all our family and friends.

Wonderful Apartment with a Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Manuel's apartment for four nights and had a wonderful time. I loved the location just outside Raval so it wasn't too crowded and there were tons of eating options in the neighborhood and in Poble Sec just a few minutes walk away. While outside of the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas it was close enough to walk most anywhere you wanted and a very short walk to both the Sant Antoni and Poble Sec metro stops (two different lines) to access those areas a bit further away. The apartment was small but perfect for two or three people with a wonderful bakery just down the street. It will be truly wonderful once the market is completed renovations. What a beautiful building. The only minor issue is that it could be a bit stuffy in the hotter months as the fan which provides a nice breeze in the main room doesn't quite help out in the bedroom. Maybe a small fan to compliment the living room fan would solve this issue.

Most Importantly Manuel was an awesome host. During our stay Hurricane Matthew decided to make landfall in our hometown of Charleston, SC and we decided to cut our trip short by a day to get home to assess any damage. I informed Manuel of our plans and he said that if he could rent out the room he would refund our money and if not provide a free night during a future visit to Barcelona. Our earlier flight ended up getting cancelled and we got our last day anyway, but this is where I knew that I will always stay at Wood House when in Barcelona. When I informed Manuel that our flight was delayed he offered up the next night FREE OF CHARGE if we still couldn't get home. Luckily we didn't need his generosity but will recommend the Wood House to all our friend and even enemies if they are traveiling to Barcelona. Thank you Manuel for a wonderful Barca experience.
