The flat is well-located and offers a good starting point for visiting most sights in Barcelona.
It is situated at the corner of 2 streets and on one side the balcony looks onto trees (and parrots in them) and a building with an ornate façade with roof statues. Lovely.
The flat is ideally placed for food shopping (you'll find a good baker near-by and a small supermarket across the road).
The flat is comfortable, light, spacious and stylish with high ceilings decorated with beautiful coving.
The kitchen is large and well-equipped.
Each room has a fan which you will need to put on in the evenings in summer, especially in the west facing rooms.
The area is quiet in the morning but the cafes and restaurants in the street below bring some life (and noise) late into the night. There is also the unavoidable passing of the council vans in charge of the emptying of the bins.
It was nice to meet the owner of the flat at the start of our holiday. Perhaps the information pack could have been sent before our arrival in order for us to book some of the recommended restaurants in advance.
The pictures posted on line give justice to the flat. I feel that the renting could perhaps be made a little simpler with one price given comprising everything.
All in all, the 6 of us (family: 3 couples) enjoyed our stay in the flat very much.
