We had a six day stay here and were very happy with our apartment. The location is a few minutes walk from three different metro stations (and the main Sants rail station) so your ability to get anywhere in Barcelona quickly is wonderful. The area is a relatively quiet residential neighborhood, dotted with supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants....including a decent pizzeria directly across the street.
The apartment itself is a great size....probably around 600 square feet....with a big bedroom, good-sized kitchen with every appliance you would want, and a lounge/dining area with TV radio etc. The couch also pulls out into a bed. Laundry is on the top floor and very efficient.
Requests for information and assistance to the management office (sited in the building from 9 to 9) were met with courtesy and efficiency at all times. The building is very safely secured, as are the doors the apartment.
One of the bonuses for us was the access to the rooftop terrace, a huge expanse of space with tables, chairs and sun recliners. Although it's a bit spartan, it's a great place to bring a bottle of wine and watch the sun go down after a day of pounding the very busy and noisy Barcelona streets. I can't believe the owners don't promote this a bit more....and maybe spend a few euros dressing it up a bit....but nevertheless, it's a great place from which to view the activity in the neighborhood.
I would highly recommend this place.
