Lejlighedens beliggenhed var lige hvad vi ønskede, der er 5 minutters gang til La Rambla og ca. 20 minutters gang til badestranden. Der aircondition i lejligheden, bare skønt når ude temperaturen er minimum 27 grader i løbet af et døgn. Der er et fuldt funktionsdygtigt køkken (dog uden en ovn). Der er meget/dejligt stille selvom vi er midt i byens centrum. Man skal måske lige fortælle at det er på 3. sal uden elevator.
The house was in the center and it's Luke you can see in the pics. Really close to the rambla. We had a nice days in the appartament. Ibilola was really kind with us, she left house till the afternoon.
Malgré un léger retard de notre part, Ibilola nous a très bien reçu. L'appartement était fidèle à la description et très bien situé. Très bon séjour.
Great place. Absolutely ideal location. And the flat was very spacious and clean. We'd definitely stay here again.
The apartment is extremely well located within the old city (Barrio Gotico), 2 minutes walk from metro and around the corner from Placa Real. You will be able to walk to most of the city very easily from here and also to the beach. It is of a good size and would not feel too cramped with a maximum occupancy. It has two showers and toilets which would be very useful for a large group, something not that common for buildings in that part of Barcelona.
I have read old comments about the noise from the street outside and Ibilola's subsequent rectifying of that with sound-proofing the windows. I can confirm that it was very much a success. I never heard a thing while sleeping at the apartment. I will qualify this by stating that this part of Barcelona; the pre-19th century part of the city split in to Barrio Gotico, El Raval and El Born are all the time very noisy, even late at night. Ibilola has been admirable in doing her best with the sound-proofing to overcome something out of her control and that is a habitual hazard of that part of Barcelona.
The internet is a bit patchy and only appeared to work in the living room area and nowhere else. That's not really an issue as one should be out enjoying Barcelona than staying in the apartment itself. With that in mind, this apartment is a good place to stay for a short space of time so that one can enjoy the fruits of the city right at your doorstep.
Finally, I have nothing but good to say about Ibilola. She was always prompt and polite in our communications. Whenever there was an issue, she was on hand and was very nice in person too.
Overall I would recommend this apartment for large groups who want to enjoy Barcelona to the full and only need somewhere to sleep and shower while they are there.
We quite enjoyed our stay in this location; very central and in the core of La Rambla area. Great for walking tours and to all of Barcelona sights. Our host was very pleasant, accessible and on time to meet us at the apartment. Explanations and tips were very appreciated. The apartment was clean but could benefit from some fresh paint and newer bath towels.
