The Glory Facade Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay in Barcelona if you are staying for a short or long time and are looking for a quiet, cheap apartment with good location.
It is situated next to La Sagrada Familia, Metro, Tourist buses, Starbucks, souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, parks...and yet it is very peacful and quiet. It takes you about 20 minutes to walk to the city center, but if you prefer the metro, the station is right across the street.
The apartment is big. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with shower, one with bath), a kitchen (the owners take care of breakfast- free toast, jam, juice, milk, eggs... you can cook lunch, dinner, use the fridge...), a dining room (big table) and a living room (two small sofas, TV, travel guides, free WI-FI). At the time of our stay there was only one other room taken, so we actually had 2 bathrooms for 2 bedrooms. The other couple was very nice, did not bother us at all, we had a nice chat about Barcelona and exchanged tips about what to see and when...
Me and my partner stayed in Picasso room, which is the biggest of the 4 bedrooms. It has a huge window, a good sized bed (I was in my 6th month of pregnancy and had no bigger trouble sharing :)), a desk and a chair, a mirror, a wardrobe and two night stands with lamps. The bathroom is right next to this room, which was also very convenient for me (especially at night).
A cleaning lady comes every two days, to clean the apartment and change the towels. The apartment is, however, not very clean (especially the kitchen and the living/ dining room are in real need of being thoroughly cleaned). And even though I really enjoyed this apartment it really bothered me that the kitchen was so sticky and was not really comfortable with touching anything in there or in the living room. That is the only problem I had with this apartment.
Overall, the apartment is great; good price, perfect location and comfortable rooms. I would stay here again.
