We stayed for 4 nights and did not want to leave, a beautiful apartment in a truly amazing city. The location of the apartment was perfect, a couple of steps away from the hustle and bustle of La Ramblas but also in the heart of the cool and quirky streets of the Gothic Quarter. We were spoiled for choice when it came to bars, restaurants and cafes as they are in abundance all around this area, and not one dissapointed us. Carla greeted us at the apartment after giving us clear directions how to get there from the airport. She was very helpful and provided us with information about the apartment, nearest shops and bars, restaurant recommendations and how to get about the city.

I would highly recommend this apartment to top off what will be an excellent holiday in Barcelona. I will recommend this apartment to friends and family, and I am certain we will be back at some point too. We love BCN!

Thanks again.

This apartment is in the gothic part of Barcelona so immerses you in what life was like for many for hundreds of years. Close to good restaurants and great markets, you can easily enjoy local fare. The apartment is not far from the Plaza Catalunya where you can get all the tourist info you need, buses, hop on hop offs....we walked to most of what we did so saw a lot of that part of Barcelona. The beach is a 15 minute walk. The neighbourhood is busy, so bring your earplugs for night time quiet.

We had a wonderful stay in this flat Boqueria. Perfect for a couple. It cannot be more in the city center, close from everything. Carla was really kind and welcoming. The perfect place to be in Barcelona !
Perfect communication. Good price/quality.

This apartment is perfectly situated in the centre of the Ramblas area. All sights are easily reached by metro, bus or foot.
The market is a stones throw away and the choice of eateries is mind blowing!
We spent a week here and had a great adventure!
Carla was very patient meeting us on arrival as we got a little lost she went out of her way to find us and take us to the apartment!
There are a lot of steps up to the flat and if you're a light sleeper take some ear plugs as the neighbouring nightlife and general rubbish clearing etc goes on well into the early hours!
Great views from the balcony and just watching the world go by! Worth booking fast track tickets to the attractions online before you fly out to avoid queueing also buy a Barcelona card for travel tickets and discounts or a multi trip metro ticket.
Wifi is available at most cafes and restaurants just ask for code
We would def return ❤️
Great communication throughout the entire process. Carla was most pleasant and warmly greeted us which was very reassuring.
For the area (being so central to everything) the price was good for the apartment.
Would def use Cocoon again.

Right in the heart of the city, in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, the apartment is close to Placa Reial, Palais Guell, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Las Ramblas, and Boqueria Market, as well as numerous shops, cafes and bars.
Because of this, it is incredibly noisy due to people roaming the streets until the very early hours and also the nightly street-cleaning and rubbish collection. At times I felt like I was 'sleeping' on a building site and found the flat much quieter during the day than at night.
If you're a heavy sleeper or happy using earplugs then the apartment is clean and fairly well-equipped with aircon, microwave, TV, and even a washing machine -- although it has to be said we felt absolutely lost without Wi-Fi and the local bar's range didn't extend beyond its walls. A hairdryer would have also come in handy and some spare rolls of toilet paper!!
Carla, who checked us in and out, was friendly and helpful, and, overall, the apartment was good value-for-money given the location.

The welcome of Carla was very friendly and warm. Everything was perfectly organized and all issues were fixed immediately. The description of the apartment is true. The toilet room is indeed narrow, but no problem. The flat is very nice and cozy. Moreover, it was very clean.

The neighborhood is vivid as it is directly in the city center, but exactly as we wished. If the windows were closed (AC works fine), it was quite silent. Countless good restaurants, Tapas Bars, Bars etc. are in the direct vicinity. All attractions of Barcelona city are in walking distance. Otherwise biking rental stations are nearby or the good subway system at Placa Catalunya.

We enjoyed our stay a lot!

Carla is a great host. I would definitely recommend this appartment to others. The only disadvantage for me was that it could be a little noisy at night.

The accommodation was good, but there were some problems with the water in the shower. The water did'n go away. As a result of that, we had to shower with very little water and only for 5 min. max, because otherwise the bathroom would be totally wet.
The Neighborhood is good even as the Welcome. Supermarket is nearby: Carrefour at the Ramblas. Thereby we had a very good bicycle rental named Clement Johnson.

The communication before and during my stay was good. Price/quality offer was okay. Website was clear and the booking process was smoothly.

Thank you for your feedback Judith!
The owner has solved the problem in the shower, which now works correctly.
We are happy to know that despite this little inconvenient you've had a great stay in Barcelona and the apartment and its location met your expectations.
Hopefully we'll have the pleasure to welcome you again in the future!

Not being in a hotel means more space to relax and have a cup of tea during the hotter parts of the day. Good for friends travelling together as there is a bit more space and you are not just stuck in a single room.

8.5 10 Rental from 6 October to 11 October 2010
We had a lovely six day stay at Boqueria. We were on a tight budget holiday and this apartment was great value. The location was so handy for transport around the city. I must admit we were glad to see the last of that access staircase, But I think we were showing our age and too used to living at ground level.
We were greeted by Julie on our arrival. She could not have been more helpful a really nice girl.
We were checked out by John, again a really nice guy. We hope to return soon to Barcelona and would like to use this apartment. Another plus was being able to leave our cases at the Cocoon offices at no cost on our day of departure as we had a late flight home. Again very pleasant staff.

This flat is as it says on the site: central, convenient, spacious.
It is quaint and picturesque, the graffitis on the building door, the steep staircase then the green door and inside a cosy safe place.
The district is noisy.

Really fantastic location - close to all the best sites and shops, but far enough away from Las Ramblas to not feel touristy and noisy. The accomodation was up quite a steep flight of steps, and the tiny door leading to the apartment was covered in graffiti, but we didn't mind! We felt like real locals living in a real Barcelona apartment block.

The location of this apartment was fantastic and we did enjoy our stay in Barcelona and would use your company again to find a place to stay. Renting an apartment gave us the flexibility to cook our own meals when we wanted to. We also got a taste of living like a local.
