Spotahome's opinion

The ethereal spread

Because I’m a time-traveler

Will I like it here?

Yep. You’re in an old building on top of the world. You get lots of sun. There’s central AC. You have a Buddha on the bookshelf and a dream-catcher above your bed.

Really? Tell me more...

You’ll never lose track of time. Three cool clocks hang about the comfy sofa. Your small balcony overlooks a narrow, medieval street. Take a peek.

We think this is ideal for those who live in the now and love visiting the past. You’re in an historical area. Every street offers a unique experience.

Your top 3 reasons to live here:

  • No one lives above you.
  • There’s air conditioning.
  • The decor is old, new, and a little eclectic.

But you need to know this...

  • You’re on the 6th floor. And there's no elevator.

Our Homechecker, Andrea, said:

“I loved this property. It’s bright. It’s in the best area. Every street is like a new universe.”

Give it to me straight...

This is a 6th floor studio on Carrer de la Formatgeria in Barcelona. There isn’t an elevator. The cool decor, cozy space, and balcony are worth every step.

It’s perfect if you love a charismatic space in an old neighborhood. Lose yourself on narrow streets. Discover trendy restaurants and hidden gems.

What we liked the most

  • Benefiting from the absence of neighbors above your head.
  • Cooling off on hot summer days – there’s central AC.
  • Embracing the comfort of home – the studio is full of character.

Things to keep in mind

  • You’ll need to walk up 6 flights of stairs – how medieval.

How to book

With Spotahome, in-person visits are a thing of the past. Our team verifies the property to offer video tours and photos so you can view them online. We collect all the information you need to make your decision.
With just a few simple details you can request the property and it will be held for you until you get a response. Remember, we won't charge you until the Landlord confirms.
The Landlord has 24 hours to respond to your booking request. If they accept, your payment method will be charged and we will put you in contact with the Landlord. If they don’t accept, no worries, you won't be charged and we'll help you find alternatives.
The safety of our tenants and owners is our priority.

Once your reservation at this property is accepted, we will ask you for some additional information. It will only take you a few minutes and you will only need the following documents:

  • ID or Passport
    Identification document (ID card or passport)
  • Proof of solvency
    Documents proving your financial solvency for rent payments (e.g., recent pay slips, bank statements...)
  • Direct debit of the rental payment
    Monthly rent payments are done through our platform on this property. We'll charge you automatically each month using direct debit, without any extra cost.
Arrange your move-in date, key collection and anything else directly with your Landlord. As an extra security step, we will only transfer the first month's rent to the Landlord 48 hours after you move in, unless you contact us with a problem.
Remember: you have 24h to check your new home

If the property is significantly different to what our listing promised, let us know within 24h since you move in so that we can work to resolve it.

Spotahome ensures the rental conditions of the property to deliver an unparalleled experience.

If you’re considering an early exit from your lease, it’s important to let your landlord know 30 days in advance unless your agreement specifies otherwise. Failing to provide this notice means you’re still liable for the rent during that period, even if you’ve moved out.
