“Centrally located, quiet apartment with spacious living room.”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We are staying here 4 days now, 3 more days to go. So far so good. This apartment is 5 to 10 minutes walk to Plaza Catalunya , La Rambla , Paseig de Gracia, and Ciutat Vella, There also convenience grocery stores next to the building's entrance. You can also take the Aerobus from/to the BCN airport for 5,90€ if you don't have heavy luggage or taxi for about 30€. So very convenient location.
The entrance is kind of scary, the door is old with some graffiti. Try not to let that scare you because once you get inside, the interior is quite nice and secure with its series of lockable doors (4 of them) leading to the apartment which is located on the floor #3 which is actually the 4th or 5th floor. I wouldn't attempt to take the stairs up, but there is an elevator.
The apartment itself - just like as presented in the pictures. We like the spaciousness of the living room/eating area combination. The bathroom space is also quite generous. Everything so far are functioning properly.
Here are some cautions to fellow travelers and suggestions to the owner to improve:
1. The unit is listed to accommodate 5 persons. It is comfortable only for 4 adults because the small bedroom is too small for 2 beds. If you set up the 2 beds there, there's room to move around, specially with the laundry cart stored there.
2. The sofa in the living room that converts into a sleeping platform has very worn upholstery. We did not want to sit on it as is so we covered with a bed sheet. See pictures I took. We had to clean it first. Mauricio, the person who checked us in said he would send the cleaning lady who never showed up.
3. The kitchen is sparsely furnished, no toaster, no bowls, the water kettle is old and a bit rusty inside.
4. The air conditioning works well but somehow it cools the small bedroom more than the rest of the unit so we had to keep changing the temp setting on the control box.
5. Written instructions in Enlgish on how to operate the clothes washer, the stove and oven, TV/channel guide, and AC would be very helpful as well as how dispose of garbage. I emailed them about the garbage and was told there is garbage bin outside the building entrance but there is none.
6. The water heater is too small for 4 persons taking showers one after the other.
The check-in process was quite efficient. Mauricio who checked us in speaks very fluent English. The cleaning fee of 70€ Was collected in cash but no receipt provided. They do respond to emails promptly.
I will update this review after our check out.
I would recommend this rental tempered with the above expectations, specially not for 5 occupants.

“Unique Location. Unpleasant Experience”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

A very unique location in the heart of the city.
A very unpleasant experience with cockroaches and flies in the entrance of the building, bathroom infested with ants, all but one lamp are burnt out in main sleeping room. If second bed in the other room is setup, you get trapped in the room. Unclean kitchen utensils (smelly and greasy). Missing tableware, not enough for 3 persons, let alone 4.
We paid 70 Euros for cleaning and received the apartment with dirty walls, unclean kitchen utensils and tableware for no more than 3 people.
Agreed on a time for the cleaning person to come. It never happened, they never apologized, and when asked they gave non acceptable excuses.

Management Response

I am very sorry for the cockroaches. No one ever complained about it. We offered immediately guests extra cleanings, after receiving complain.
As well we have painted all the walls and bought new tableware.
