Interaction with Guests
As I am away from Barcelona when renting the apartment, I have my housecleaner come and arrange the key pick up and drop off with him.
However, when I am in town, then I enjoy welcoming my guests with wine, cheese and olives, and going out for a coffee in the neighbourhood.
Yes, the Metro Urquinaona (Jonqueres entrance) is 100 meters from the apartment and is on the orange line. It is very convenient. There are also many buses passing on Via Laietana, right next to the apartment, as well as the Sightseeing bus next to the cathedral, a few minutes away.
Very easy going, just enjoy! Although I allow smoking, I prefer that you limit it to only smoking out of the kitchen window with the door closed.
Respect the neighbors and don't play music very loud. Just try to behave and have a good time there without bothering the other people. They are really nice and friendly, but it is a well to do family oriented building so quite a peaceful haven from the fast pace and noise of BCN!
