My mum and I stayed in the St Jordi Apartments on Carrer Fontanella from 11th to 15th February and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The apartments are roomy, spotlessly clean and in an ideal situation.
The small kitchen area has everything you need for making a snack (including fridge and microwave) - apart from a kettle (I had read this previously and had taken a travel kettle with me). There's a dining table which seats four and a sofa. There's also a small sideboard and a great flat-screen TV. There's a washing machine if you need one and cleaning materials are to hand.
The two single beds are very comfortable and the bathroom had everything needed (including hairdryer), with a plentiful supply of hot water. Bath sheets and hand towels were changed daily. There's a safe in the wardrobe.
Both the lounge and the bedroom had a balcony - we were on the third floor and it was great to look out over the street below and watch the world go by.
The location is ideal. Just down the side of El Corte Ingles, two minutes' walk to Placa de Catalunya, five minutes' walk to Las Ramblas. It's a safe location, the street it's on is well lit and busy most of the time. Having said that, the double glazing is fantastic and once the balcony doors are shut, you really don't hear any traffic noise at all.
Getting there from Barcelona is so easy - just catch the Aerobus from the airport and get off at Placa de Catalunya and within two minute you're at the apartment!!
I really can't recommend these apartments highly enough. Just a couple of tips - next door is a Chinese buffet restaurant. The food on offer was okay but not nearly warm enough, it wasn't even lukewarm. We did find a fantastic little restaurant. If you go to the top of Las Ramblas and take the first street off to the right, you will see a small place on the right called Restaurant Tallers. It's a homely kind of place (it is busier at lunchtime than in the evening) and is really clean. You get a four course meal (nothing fancy, just good wholesome food) plus wine (half a bottle per person) and bread for 9 euros - bargain!!
