My family and I recently returned from our vacation in Barcelona and we were very pleased with the apartment and the rental experience. Regarding the apartment we found it to be very neat, well equipped and modern. Now if you are an experienced European traveller you will find the apartment to be rather large by European standards. If you have never travelled to Europe you must realize that this is not USA! We are a family of 3 with a teenage daughter and we found the apartment to much more comfortable than a hotel room. The apartment had everything, including a washing machine and a full kitchen. It was located near shops and restaurants. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated; the photos on the website are accurate but don't do the apartment justice once you walk inside. In easy walking distance to all of Barcelona's attractions. We saw all the major sights in 4 short days; slept very comfortably every night. I would highly recommend this apartment to any of my friends or family, or to anyone looking for a little bit of space in a beautiful apartment. We have had a wonderful stay and we would love to return!
