This apartment had the feel of a place someone doesn't actually live in and really just rents out. That said, it's perfectly fine as a launchpad to explore Barcelona from--but it's not a good home base to relax and cook and hang out in. The kitchen is super small and doesn't offer much space to cook. The common area is spacious with a nice big table, but that's about it. Of the three bedrooms, one is definitely nicer than the other two. One issue was the lack of a clothes dryer, even though one is listed. Instead there was a clothes line, but no clothes pins. The washing machine also wasn't working and had to be completely removed from under the kitchen counter, only to discover the cord was tucked way behind and not plugged in (and even then the instructions on the front were so worn off we couldn't figure out how to properly run it). The shower, which is only large enough for one person to stand straight up in, didn't have a single shelf to keep soap or shampoo, so you had to do a full squat to the ground just to grab what you needed (not a huge deal, but one person in our party was over seven months pregnant; NOT comfortable). Also, definitely note that if you check in on a Sunday or holiday you will be charged extra, and will be expected to pay upon arrival in cash. The same is true for cleaning--that's paid in cash upon arrival as well. Now for the nice things: the neighborhood is very safe, clean, pretty, and close to great markets and groceries. It's close to the L6/Muntaner train stop, which can take you straight into town. Sylvia, who checked us in, was very nice, helpful, and easy to contact with any problems we encountered. Overall, the feel of the apartment was a budget rental, and as long as you go in with that mentality, it'll be ok. We live in Brooklyn and are used to small spaces, so it ended up being fine. However, a little care and attention to the apartment would go a long way to make renters feel more at home.
