I have nothing but praise for this lovely apartment and "Travelling 2 Barcelona" Rental Company. Apartment was big, very clean, pretty, well-appointed, and in a great area. With enough personal touches to make it nice, but not so many that you feel uncomfortable in someone else's space. Apartment is one flight up, and walkable to everything (Las Ramblas, right across from Chocolate museum, Picasso Museum, Sagrada Familia, parks, and really every place else.) This truly is a better location than right on Las Ramblas. The photos portray it brighter than its actual cozy self. There are views to the street/plaza on both the living room side and bedroom side. Bedroom was a little noisy at night, so bring ear plugs. Good restaurants and bars right downstairs, even better ones a short walk away. Stores and bakeries also very close by.
And the Rental Company, "Travelling 2 Barcelona" (especially Javier) was the best! Friendly and responsive on email from the US and the phone. They meet you at the apartment with the key so you don't waste time going to a rental office, and they bring you your reciept or extra key if you need one. And all the costs were disclosed up front, and cheaper than staying in a sparse hotel room.
When I go back to Barcelona, this is where I'll stay! ...And if you need someplace bigger in Barcelona, I'd get in touch with Travelling 2 Barcelona.
A cheery, comfortable place in best location and great rental company.
Would've liked more time there!
