A delightful small apartment, with a great location
Our experience was the same as others' here. Assumpta was very responsive to email inquiries, replying almost before we sent them, and her replies were invariably friendly and extremely helpful. We were met at the apartment exactly as we were told we would be, and all went very smoothly. Assumpta suggests that you don't bring a very large suitcase, and that's good advice; the stairs are quaint and the corners tight. But they're fine (and we're definitely 55+).
The apartment has pretty much everything you could reasonably want, and is nicely set up with modern, comfortable furniture. It's well laid out, with a nice sleeping area separated by a barrier from the living area, and a clean and modern bathroom (well, shower, not bath) at the opposite end. The space is well used so that, although it's not a large space, it doesn't feel at all cramped. There's heating and air conditioning, and that modern essential: wi-fi.
The location is great. Turn left, and you're on the beach in a couple of minutes. Go round a couple of corners, and in a minute or so more you're looking at the harbour. Ten minutes up the road is the Metro, giving you access to the city, although La Rambla is only a short walk round the harbour; you're pretty central. The area has plenty of food shops and restaurants, and although at the weekend the beach and harbour areas attract large numbers of people enjoying the amenities, the apartment's street is very quiet, both day and night.
Departure, too, was handled efficiently and warmly; Anna arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport, and we got there when we needed to, exactly as planned. You leave with the feeling of having been well looked after. It's a great apartment, extremely well located. We'd recommend it without hesitation to anyone, friends, family or otherwise.
