Apartment is very centrally located. All major bus and subway lines are nearby. Shopping are also sufficiently available in the vicinity.
The apartment (ie not on the street) is a courtyard and is therefore quiet. Also the cleanliness we noticed positive. The mattresses and pillows were new. Local support was exclusively via e-mail and worked perfectly. But that's about the positives have been.
Unfortunately, the images have promised more on the Internet, as the apartment has ultimately held. In particular, the size of the apartment, the comfort of the furniture and the beds extremely simple (metal frame, pressed particle board and cable ties) are mentioned here. According to the Internet "large" balcony presented itself as an area of ​​about 1 square meter, which was also equipped with a washing machine and even a sink to the wall. The kitchen equipment was very basic, partially patchy and showed especially in the cooking pots and pans significant signs of wear. A flat-screen TV is available, but only Spanish channels can be received.
A linen (eg sheets, towels) was not provided. It was recommended to us, easy to wash. Justification: It finally is a "low-cost housing."
The additional fee of 15 - 25 euros for a so-called "late check-in" from 18.30 clock was very strange, because we are against 19:05 clock on arrival 25 euros were already unbuttoned. The deposit was to be paid immediately - repayment by PayPal transfer was made 14 days after the end of the holiday.

Great stay in Barcelona. Apartment very well located, but much smaller than the pictures. problem with the boiler during the stay (but it was changed), when heating is a disaster!

Barcelona-home Pretty flat with cool terrace (75) HUTB-003012

Vi var 7 personer og vi er veldig fornøyd med oppholdet og leiligheten: den er godt utstyrt, ren og godt vedlikeholdt. Terrassen er også veldig fin. Super beliggenhet på Placa Espanya med 100 meter å gå til metro og samme til Arenas kjøpesenter.

OK oppfølging av kontoret både den ene gangen vi hadde bruk for dere under oppholdet og ved inn- og utsjekk. MEN - et minus: en så stor leilighet beregnet for så mange personer skulle ha hatt flere nøkkelsett uten ekstra avgift. Ekstra depositum hadde kanskje vært forståelig.

This property looked really lovely in the photos when we were searching for accommodation in Barcelona. BE WARNED, this apartment is not what it looks like or at least not any more. So here's whats bad about this apartment....

The shower, which was shared between 6 people had a lot of mould and mildew on the tiles (something that could be easily treated) and the shower, when turned on full power, flies off the wall and sprays the whole bathroom- although this is easily done as it is very small too!
The bedrooms were all very small, the beds were very uncomfortable, the pillows were very thin with no extras available, the towels provided are old, thin, a bit skanky and there were not enough.
There was NO KETTLE!!! The percolator for coffee is broken but we fastened it together with a hair grip. There weren't enough plates, bowls, glasses for 6 people.
The Iron was broken and when we asked for a replacement from our host (who said to contact her for anything we needed), she didn't reply to our messages.
Any niceties shown in the photos to make the apartment look comfortable and homely were not there..eg, rug, extra floor cushions- which were needed as there is only enough room on the sofa for 4 people at a squeeze.
The walls were very scuffed and dirty.
There was only room for 4 people around the dinner table.
Everything was just VERY basic and lacking in TLC. It felt like we were staying in a poor quality hostel but without the hostel price.
The people who run these apartments obviously love Barcelona but that certainly don't love their apartments that they rent out!
One positive- The apartment is near a subway!

Unfortunately, we can give them a rating to the apartment because we were relocated due to water pipe break in another apartment.

Apartment clean, spacious, functional, beautiful terrace ... pleasant to live .. only downside: having commodities available for tenants (trash bags, salt, pepper, coffee because most Italian coffee 3/4tasses Max. ...) we had a great week.

Dear Renata, Thank you for your warm welcome. Everything worked out perfectly. You were spot on time and have everything explained to us very well. We have felt ourselves very well. The roof terrace is a highlight. Greetings from Claudia and Susanne

everything was very uncomplicated.
the location is situated perfect directly @ urgell-station.
everything is nearby.
the flat was clean and everything was there we needed.
the beds could have been better. very lowbudget.

at least, it was quite lound inside the apartment.
you hear everything from the neighbours and from the big street
in front.

all in all perfect for a stay to visit the beautiful city of barcelona
but not for staying in the apt all the time :)

Very nice neighborhood in central location - even if the photos on the internet are a bit nicer then than it is in reality. The room with the double bed on the upper floor is unfortunately rather loud, the window does not close completely. Therefore, you can hear the road noise is relatively loud. One of the plus points are clearly the roof terrace and a total of 3 bathrooms / toilets - ideal for a larger group.
