We (a group of 7 with two children) stayed in two of the Villaroel apartments. The distance from the Ramblas is about 15-20 minutes walk and the apartments were very good, clean and equipped with all kinds of dishes, cutlery, so we were able to prepare breakfast and everything. I am mostly satisfied with the service I received during the booking process and on coming and leaving the apartment. The guy that did everything for us - booking the apartments, organizing a transfer from the airport, dealing with our not so small group, is called Arthur Joseph. He was great, very friendly and helpful!
The only small downside, I would mention is that my apartment was overlooking a busy street and it was a little noisy with the traffic, but the other apartment was in the inside of the building and there was no such thing there. On the whole, a great experience and we are all looking forward to staying in another Old Town Apartment!

The apartment was clean and vey comforatable. It is surprisingly large and very cool. There is a lovely terrace looking out over the rooftops - perfect for a late afternoon drink.

It is within easy walking distance from all the shops, the best sights etc. and we loved it! The staff were very helpful at the office and we were able to store our bags there after we checked out. The apartment is within easy walking distance from the office too so checking in and out was a piece of cake.

We stayed in apartment “Borne Santa Maria” literally across from the Santa Maria del Mar (certainly one of the most beautiful churches in Barcelona). The apartment is also within baby monitor reach of the square in front of the church, which offers a choice of 3 or 4 cafes and restaurants with outside terraces. This is a great area in which to stay, with boutique shopping, designer tapas-bars, the Picasso Museum and real down-town Barcelona street life.

The apartment is not big (although bigger than any hotel room in the same price category) but well-equipped and cheerfully decorated. The bedding and towels were new and fresh and the apartment was spotlessly clean. We were traveling with small children and found this a perfect way to still experience the city life in Barcelona. The lift to the apartment is a few stairs up from the front door, but for us it was still manageable.

Most importantly, the apartment is exactly what the website of Old Town Apartments Barcelona and our email correspondence with them led us to expect. We arrived very late (at 00:30 on a Friday morning), but the reception desk stayed open for us (as previously arranged and separately paid for). The directions to the reception desk and to the apartment were very clear and we had no trouble checking in.

We booked 2 apartments in the same building, at Carrere de Pere Serafi(I hope I'm not misspeled the street).
We were 8 people and we split in 4 people at apartment. The apartments were clean, well equiped. The location in my opinion was great with shops nearby from where we buy groceries. The sleep was great, the noi from outside can't be hear inside and the vertical blinds ensure you can sleep until afternoon.
Now, not so good things. The bathroom was in one of the room, so the others must cross a room in order to use the bath. The internet is available only if you pay a price, which for 1 day or 2 is a little bit high. And in the bedroom there was no tv.
So, to conclude, the one bedroom apartment is good only for 2 persons or a family.

Lived in the Valencia apartment for 4 days. Had our own terrace with a nice neighbour that played guitarr one evening which we could listen to on the terrace. Supermarket nearby and ofcourse alot of restaurants, some good and some less good, also found an Irish Pub/bar. A 10-20 min walk to Sagrada Familia (depending on your fitness) and easy acess to the metro. Good treatment from the Apartmentsapart people, we could even have our bags at their office since our flight home was late in the evening and checkout was 11am, perfect for spending a day at la Rambla or maybe going to the Gaudi park.

I stayed in this same apartment about 3/4 years ago, and it was so nice I went back again this year with a different group of friends. Two apartments, eight mature ladies and it was perfect...location right, shared cost between us all made the holiday a heck of a lot cheaper than a hotel. Everything was spotless. We were able to have a night in with all eight of us, each bringing a bottle and a bite to eat, which made a pleasant change from eating in a restaurant.

My one an only criticism is that there is a shortage of mirrors! There are two mirrors in the whole apartment and both are in the bathrooms, so a bit of a struggle between us all, but we did manage in the end.

All in all, I would thoroughly recommend Old Town Apartments.
