I liked location very much. 5 minutes from the Avinguda Diagonal and Passeig Gracia. Very friendly, quiet neigbourhood. For my opinion apartment was not ready for the guests. 1. Air conditioner was from the middle of the 20 century, very loud and not effective 2. No soup in the bathroom and electric kettle in the kitchen. No windows, only door to the balcony.
We stayed apartment one for 5 days in February 2009 and it was the best Valentine weekend ever. Joana and Artur were the best hosts and when we missed our bus Artur came and rescued us so that we did not miss our flight.
We were impressed with the cleanliness of the apartment and the creature comforts around us. We didn't have the best view as the apartment was lower than the others but it was still a fantastic view during breakfast. We also went to Lizaran for tapas on Artur's recommendation and it was superb and we are now hooked on tapas!!
We did the bus tour round Barcelona and it was fantastic and with the metro stop right outside visiting all the sights was easy. We loved our stay and having Joana and Artur so close was a comfort but they also left us to our privacy which was an excellent balance.
We were on one of the lower floors but the street noise in our view was minimal and having a supermarket nearby and a little shop on the corner was great.
We would definately visit again and would recommend the apartment to anyone. The view from the roof was the best ever and we have panoramic views and the daylight pictures are as amazing as the night time ones.
Well done on an excellent accommodation, and the information and suggestions of things to do made the trip perfect. Just remember to check the bus timetables very carefully for your return journey!!
