Lovely apartment, lived in but not cluttered, elegant and filled with brightly colored paintings and lots of light. It is on a busy street, but there are noise- and light-blocking shades on the windows
Great kitchen, with a double sink, dishwasher, and washing machine. (We wish we could have a kitchen like this at home in NY!) There is a good assortment of cooking utensils (a great garlic press, a grater, strainers, a blender, etc.)
The bed is a little smaller than a double (full) bed in the U.S.
The location is fantastic. About two blocks away is the Gracia neighborhood, which is filled with small streets, independent boutiques, great restaurants, and two markets. (It used to be a separate, bohemian village.) There are buses outside the apartment that go to the beach, the center (Catalunya), and Montjuic. It is possible to take a long walk to Passeig de Gracia to see the famous Gaudi houses and other aspects of Modernista architecture in the Eixample. Two subway stations are nearby.
Anna and Raf were very helpful. They left us detailed instructions in the apartment, and lent us some baby items (a high chair, stroller, a travel crib, and a bathtub and bath toys). When we contacted them about a problem with the hot water, they responded immediately, came over within a half hour, and had a technician come fix the problem the same day, even though it was a Sunday.
The only downside of the apartment was the very slow, unreliable internet connection (the free public Barcelona wifi). We would often loose the connection in the middle of trying to send an email, so we would compose email messages in Word first before trying to send them. We managed this way, but realize that it might be unworkable for others.
