I couldn't ask for a better apartment while visiting Barcelona! Only a 10 minute walk to Plaza Catalunya. The apartment is located 4 blocks up from Plaza Catalunya off of the busy La Rambla-Catalunya street to merit shopping and place to dine all around but far enough from the crowded Catalunya area on down to the sea. The apartment has been modernized and perfect size for a small family. Taxi hub is located just across the street and the Metro subway is a 3 minute walk around the block. And hands down to the apartment manager Roberto. He was great to work with. He greeted us at arrival, took us up to the 7th floor where the apartment was located and gave us the official grand tour. He also gave us a map and helped us navigate through the subway lines and streets. Great resource! He also made himself accessible if or when we needed him! The elevator did go out of service the day before our departure and couldn't be fixed prior to our departure so Roberto came to our apartment around 6am on our depature date, helped carried all of our luggage as we walked down 7 floors of stairs and hailed a taxi to take us straight to the airport. The elevator breaking down had me thinking 4 stars initially however, Roberto's good deed warrants that extra star. Apartment was really nice, comfortable, great location and Roberto was the best manager hands down. This experience merits 5 stars.
