You will LOVE this flat! My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of December 2014. The location is amazing. Great little restaurants with in an easy walk. Metro is also a short stroll...maybe 5 minutes, but you will love the walk. From there get anywhere you want to go. We bought the 4 day all you can ride pass and only used a taxi once (new years eve). Close to the stop for the double decker tour bus which we recommend if you want to learn more about Barcelona and hit all the top attractions quickly and easily. Not even 15 steps from the front door is a little market to get things you may have forgotten or just to stock up on wine or some groceries. Coffee and espresso shops are just a few steps farther. We would stop on the way home and pick up some of the incredible pastries for breakfast the next day. A very safe and intimate neighborhood. The flat is one short set of steps to the first floor. Very spacious for two people. Everything was so easy to operate we had ZERO problem with anything in the flat. Victor and family have it down to a science. You will like the little outdoor space in back for just hanging out. The interior design is very up to date while keeping the charm of old Barcelona. Super clean and quiet. We used the washing machine several times for towels and clothes. There is not a dryer in the unit but you can hang outside on the clothesline on the private patio. You will really like Victor. He was quick to respond to all our questions and is like your own personal concierge if you any questions or need recommendations. Really can't express how great this location is. We really enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. We often think back to our time in Barcelona and how much more special it was having our own "home" to come back to everyday.
