Rented one of the apartments on Joaquim Costa for 4 days in October 2013. We weren't told that we would have to pay upfront so we had to go and get the cash out on the spot (not a big deal), also you have to give your keys back to the cleaner so make sure you tell them to be there nice and early so you don't have to hang around too long! (we had to wait about 20 mins past the agreed time). The apartment is in a great location - really handy to get to the Ramblas / beach & there are plenty of nice little places to grab a drink around the area. We wanted an apartment as we wanted more space and having the kitchen area is ideal. The only problem we had was that the place reeked of moth balls - we bought air freshner and sprayed constantly but as we kept leaving the apartment shut up all day in the heat the smell just lingered, really unpleasant - so much so that all our clothes still smelled of moth balls when we unpacked. There was noise on the streets in the evenings but that is only to be expected from such a central location. No dvd player in room as mentioned on website - we didn't bother contacting them afterwards about it but as I see from another comment they are provided if you ask. Besides that the place was great.
