Four female friends on holiday, we chose an apartment instead of a hotel so we could have more time together. Happy Apartments did not disappoint. Phoning from the airport to confirm our arrival there was someone to greet us and the 'book in' process was quick and friendly. Keypad access meant no worries of keys being lost or there being enough if we wanted to go our seperate ways.
Whilst basic, the two bedroom apartment (No 6) offered plenty space and having two bathrooms with showers was a bonus! With linen, along with a kitchen area with all necessary utensils, an iron and ironing board and a hairdryer provided, our essential needs were met. (There was also access to a washing machine but we didn't check this out). Our apartment was at the rear of the building and had a small balcony. Having left the snow in Scotland it was lovely to sit outside in the sun with glass of wine in hand!
We found the location perfect and walked to most sights although public transport was only minutes away and easy to use. There were also numerous, excellent restaurants nearby (just off Las Ramblas) - perfect after long days on our feet! At no time did we feel unsafe or intimidated regardless of the hour we left or returned to the building.
Overall, we found this option extremely good value for money. Our first time of booking an apartment instead of hotel accommodation, we plan to do the same on our next city break together. Thank you Happy Apartments!
