This apartment is located in the best area of "La Rambla", the most known and cosmopolitan boulevard of Barcelona, just a few meters from Plaça Catalunya and most of the emblematic places and buildings of the city. Walking down La Rambla we will pass by the Boqueria Marquet or the Grand Theater of Liceu, and we arrive, after a few minutes of walking, to the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), leading you to the medieval past steeped in centuries of Barcelona's history. If you carry on down the Rambla, you pass by the Güell Palace nd other well-known buildings and museums. La Rambla ends at the harbour.
If you turn left, you will come across the Barceloneta Quarter, with numerous restaurants and tapas bars. If you keep on walking a little further on, you will come upon the Born Quarter, where Picasso museum and Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral are located, along with many other interesting places.Alternatively, if you walk up La Rambla, on the upper side, you can find Passeig de Gràcia, la Rambla de Catalunya and the Eixample Quarter with a huge range of exclusive shops , and two of the most well-known buildings in the world by the famous architect Antoni Gaudí: the Batlló House and Milà House, also known as La Pedrera.

Great location on the nicer side of La Ramblas
This is my second visit to BCN and had the pleasure of staying at this location. As many people have mentioned, its one of the most convenient locations to get around. You're in the safer side of La Ramblas, the south side feels a bit more sketchy towards the late night, and theres a pharmacy, a grocery store and the farmer's market, the metro, and pretty much anything you really need within a 2 minute walking distance.
They only heads up is that the La Rambla's strip is a noisy one and you'll hear the craziness from the streets on busy nights. All the accommodations were great, they even had a Nespresso machine. Win!
Maria was wonderful, she made sure everything was as expected. The washing machine door locked up on me but she was able to have it looked at and resolved within a day.
Great location and views
Pros: There isn't a better location in Barcelona. I could walk right out the door to get coffee, groceries, gifts, and the Metro. I walked to several Gaudi sites from the apartment. The apartment is clean, bright, and with great views of La Rambla. The managers were extremely helpful and friendly. When my flight was canceled at the last minute, they let me stay an extra night and gave me an excellent rate. They also brought in a chair that I needed for my work. The apartment itself is well-equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, plus a great little washing machine.
Cons: It is not necessarily a cozy place -- not a single rug on all tile floors, not even a bath mat; the shower needed some maintenance; the bathroom light and fan run on the same switch; mattress and pillows are flat and hard; futon couch is awkward to sit on tho handy for an extra guest. If you stay for a long time, the noise from the street might wear at you--an apartment on a higher floor might be quieter. Rambla F is on the third floor. It gets very little sun. Both sinks are hard to use without getting water on the counters. These are little things that got to me after 10 days, but might not bother other people.
You can people-watch to your heart's content from the windows. There is a wonderful old-fashioned elevator. Doors are secure, and you feel very safe in the building. Great little pita kitchen on the ground floor. There is a large grocer a few steps south, but a much friendlier, smaller grocer across La Rambla, down Carrer Canuda. I walked to a guitar concert and to the wonderful restaurant, 4 Gats, and did plenty of Christmas shopping. The apartment is in the middle of a major shopping area, close to the University of Barcelona, and right off Placa Catalunya, which is a Metro hub. It's very easy to get out to the main sites and back again.
Its a lovely place that meets all your basic needs. I would give it three and a half stars if I could do half-stars.
