..What you need to know
**3rd Floor – No lift. But the stairs are very spacious and easy.
**No Air Con. ( only Fans) It's a corner building and has many balconies, the air is fresh and flows
**Noise - No exemption – this is Barcelona like any other capital city full of Daily hussle and bussle. My square is tranquil but you will hear noise. You will hear the church bells in the mornings as much as the musicians in the square at lunch time, to the dog barking, to the streets cleaners. If you are not use to it , the in summer months I provide EarPlugs just in case you want to sleep early.
Very happy to help you.
