This beautifully furnished apartment is positioned on a lovely shopping strip in between La Rambles and Le Cathedral.
The furnishings are stunning and complemented by high ceilings, and all the extras you want - CD played with CDs, DVD player, cable TV, wireless internet and desk area. It has a proper sized fridge and kitchen, washing machine and dryer and a fold out sofa bed. They even supply things like coffee and cereal to get you started.
The apartment is set back inside the building from the street and was suprisingly quiet given its proximity to all the action. The heating and cooler systems both worked really well - important given the temperature fluctuations here.
We stayed here 4 nights and found it so comfortable, clean and good value (EUR 112 per night). We spent the previous 9 nights at Tosca Apartments (Also booked on www.ratestogo.com) but found Tosca overpriced for the furnishings, more noisy and quite dirty and run down. Not to meantion not nearly as funky and central as this one.
For check in a lovely lady called Mary meets you here and finalises the paperwork (5 minutes). So easier than a hotel even.
Only thing to remember is that taxi's can't access many of small shopping streets like this in Barcelona. So get the Taxi to drop you at La Rambles and Portaferrissa street and just walk down. It's only a few minutes walk.
Highly recommended for couples or families with young children like us. Our 3 and 4 year old kids shared the sofa bed.
