I spent a lot of time trying to find an apartment that was convenient, big enough for 5 adults that need their space, and quiet. This one met all the criteria. It is right in the heart of Barcelona, on the main avenue, yet it is on the 7th floor facing the back of the building so it is very quiet. You couldn't ask for a better location and we were thrilled the the apartment. As a bonus, it has a view of Goudi's Sagrada Familia and it is across from his Casa batlló pottery house.
