Stayed here with one of my best friends for a long weekend, we booked a room with a shared bathroom on the top floor (floor 5). We had our own lounge area, kitchen and dining area and a balcony (although it was slightly chilly to use it).
It felt more like an apartment and effectively it is when you are staying on the top floor. Except in the morning your wholemeal home-made croissant, juice, tea and coffee is sitting waiting on the table every morning at 9am. That was the only time we seen the other guests - only two of them the whole stay and it was very nice to chat to people over breakfast.
Siri is great - very friendly, informative and has a lot of knowledge about Barcelona. Joaquin is lovely too even when we had a late morning and delayed him cleaning up! (Yes, they clean up all your dishes after breakfast too)! :)
Location wise, I think it was perfect for us - we walked everyday there and back from the Rambla and it is a good 20 minutes if not a little more. However, the metro is a couple mins walk and we used that too when we went further afield - which is spot on - quick and efficient!
Overall the apartment / B&B is amazing and would 100% recommend it!!! It is lovely to come back somewhere which feels comfortable, homely and safe! I will definitely be back!
