"We are a family of six, with four children ages 4 through 13. We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment, because it was very convenient to walk to Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. Getting picked up for tours was a little more challenging because the street below is very small: we ended up either walking to the next major intersection, or in one case, to the closest hotel. The myTaxi app only worked about half, or less than half the time for fetching a taxi to that location; hailing a taxi from a busier intersection worked better.
We had a ton of space to spread out and relax while we were there, and slept well. The high speed Internet access was quite useful for us and for the kids, and having three bathrooms meant that no one had to wait. The kitchen was fully outfitted with plates, bowls, utensils, mugs, even a variety of beer and wine glasses.
The apartment is on the second floor, with elevator access, but we used the stairs unless we were bringing luggage in or out. We appreciated the laundry machine, although the wash and dry cycles took a couple hours each, so planning ahead is useful.
We were very happy with the family who own this apartment, who gave all of their contact information, tips on the city, and were very concerned with ensuring that the apartment was perfectly clean and ready for us. Thanks!"
