Great flat for a weekend stay.
The place was beyond clean with all the commodities, hair drier included, and also a fully functioning kitchen. Location was also great being a mere 5 mins walk from the Arc de Triomf tube station.
The only (but big) BUT was the treatment from the people working at reception. Seeing as how we were arriving past midnight, we were asked to call a phone number when we arrived at the flat. It was then when and to our surprise, we we were asked to provide with our card details over the phone to pay an extra tourist fare no one had mentioned before. What's worse if the fact that we were told that it was either that or they wouldn't give us the keys to the apartment, even though we had already paid for the full stay and were let in to the lobby already. It was only after we got hold of the manager we had been speaking to to arrange our arrival when she sorted it out and we were finally given access to the flat.
The fact that we had some Spanish speakers in the group helped solve the situation quickly, but it was far from the ideal.
Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed our stay, but I would advise to double check on these extra fares to avoid any last minute surprises.
We had an amazing stay in this apartment! The apartment itself was spacious. Although it was meant for 4, we asked for an extra bed and all 5 of us still had enough room. It's great that the kitchen and living room are united, that way we could spend more time together (some eating, some relaxing). The bathroom was big enough for 5 girls and our things! :) All the employees were kind and helpful, we received help with our visit to PortAventura and every time we needed extra towels or blankets, they were provided. As we cooked most of the food ourselves we quickly ran out of kitchen towels (a few more would be great) and a slightly better dishcloth would be useful as well, it was a bit difficult to wash the dishes or clean the table with it. Basically everything is within walking distance: only 20 minutes to La Rambla, Arc de Triomf is almost around the corner, walk to the beach takes also about 20 minutes. There is a great bike rental nearby and Domino's Pizzeria is next door. Great location, lovely neighbourhood and a cozy apartment! Gracias! We really recommend it.
