Fantastic location grand apartment steeped in history. Right in the centre of it all yet peaceful enough to think you are worlds awY from hustle and bustle. Highly recommended we were a party of 4 adults.
The title pretty much says it all.
Mid-way between Diagonal and Passeig de Gracia metro stations, getting around couldn't be easier - a very short walk from La Pedrera and Casa Batllo and a couple of metro stops from anything else in the heart of the city.
Quynh (the owner) has been an absolute pleasure to deal with - very responsive and helpful throughout.
I haven't stayed in a Barcelone apartment before, but to my mind this one's BIG. Unlike Paris, where an apartment of this size would be listed as "sleeps 12", this one's honest, spacious and comfortable. It isn't appointed with the ultra-high quality fixtures & fittings you'll find at some others listed, but it's perfectly acceptable and significantly less expensive as a result.
The apartment itself has two double bedrooms and a kids' room (with 4 beds). Our boys are 15 and 12, but the kids' beds are big enough for them. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, there's a separate bath/shower room and a further shower room with toilet. The kitchen / dining area is also a good size and has a table big enough for 8. The sitting room is also spacious, with a little alcove and small balcony.
The front two rooms (master bed and kids' bed) overlook Rambla de Catalunya, and were it not for the two layers of double glazing would probably be quite noisy. The sitting room (and balcony) overlook a very large courtyard with a school. During the week there's almost continuous noise from the kids playing outside, but unless you want complete silence it shouldn't bother you (and if you want complete silence, why would you stay in a city centre?!).
Overall, we're very pleased with every aspect of the stay.
