Reviewed April 11, 2013

I got a 2 bedroom apartment for 5 people as I was travelling with friends and it consisted of a single bedroom, a double bedroom and a double sofa bed. We got quite a good deal so didn’t pay a lot so I guess we got what we paid for. It was a nice apartment with a fairly good location, the rooms were all a decent size and it had Wi-Fi. My main criticism would be it was quite impersonal. Although we were aware the address given was the office when we arrived there was no-one there. We waited until 1pm as this was check in time and then we rang the number on the door. The lady gave us directions for us to follow to our apartment, but not knowing the city it did take us a while to find. It would have been better if we had the exact details of where we were staying emailed to us a couple of days before so at least then we could plan our journey before we got there. When we got there the blind was broken so we then had no natural light into the lounge area, we text the lady but there was no reply. The only other criticism was there were only 4 mugs and 4 knives and forks although the apartment was for 5 people. However as previously stated, we got a good deal so for what we paid for it wasn’t too bad.

we stayed 5 nights in our two bedroom, two bathroom apartment and were very satisfied with it. Although the second bedroom is quite small and has no window to the open air, it was adequate for this time of year (early spring). The location was excellent -- just about 3 blocks from Plaza Cataluña and the nearest metro. The street was quiet and pleasant. We weren't able to use the washer either because we needed more directions or it wasn't working, but everything else was in good working order. If I were choosing this apartment in winter or summer I'd ask questions about heating and air-conditioning. We had adequate, but not strong wi-fi on the sun porch, and the TV was fine. I'd rent this apartment again.

Beware, having just returned from barcelona where we booked an apartment for 5nts for 2 people. The first apartment was 3 metro stops from plaza catalunya right on the edge of the old town. Bedroom right on road front so very very noisy. Bathroom no more than cupboard ie shower over hipbath and could clean teeth and pee at same time. Lady did offer to move us next day. Next apartment 3 bedrooms, better location, ie just up from plaza catalunya. Also bedroom at back so much quieter. Two bathrooms, however black mould in grouting of shower and water did not drain away from shower base for ages. Luckily had other bathroom but also suffered mould in grouting. Stains on couch in living room with throw over it to hide them. Our comments were sent to office after our stay but all we got back was standard questionnaire to fill in. Dont rely on pictures shown on websites. My advice only book private apartments which show what you are getting. Have done this before and were excellent. Stick to gothic area in centre.

Good location, apartment very clean ( apart from a very small kettle not big enough for max amount staying). 2 criticisms no info on checking out time & info on obtaining door keys needs to be clearer.

Though I think the apartment is in great location, I was looking to stay nearer to Placa Catalunya, where the office is... After finding the office, we needed to go 10 blocks away with the bags and children to find the apartment.
On the other hand we got a good night sleep and enjoyed the city. I would recommend it!

Very happy overall. The location is a 5 minute walk to Metro Diagonal (green line). It also is just two stops away to La Sagrada Familia. The green metro line takes you to Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas.
With a 5 year old having a kitchen is convenient for preparing a healthy breakfast before heading out for the day. Having a fridge to store milk, eggs, cheese etc also helped with our budget on our trip.
The little balcony off the living room was really cute and since the apt is on the main street you can enjoy a cup of coffee whie taking in the view.
Oh yes the apartment was very sound proof. I got a great night's sleep
