Great Place
The apartment was perfect and in a great location. Plenty of places to eat and drink with easy access to the city and main attractions. Only criticism is the inability to contact apartment manager other than via telephone. We had to wait 2 hrs for someone to meet us for registration. They write emails to you but don't respond to ours.

Nice apartment but problems with staff
It was really good but we needed to wait someone to make check in for 40 minutes even after sending an email with the flight and arival times at the apartment and receiving an confirmation email... it almost ruined our first plans!! Also in the end we sent an email and called to the company asking for a transfer and they answered it saying that they would make the reservation but they didn't and we needed to walk around with our bags at 3:30am looking for a taxi... we called at the night to the man that made our check out and he was rude saying that it wasn't his fault or his job and we would need to look a taxi for ourselves!!!

Not recommended to families with small kids
I stayed there with my two small kids and wife for 7 nights. The lift system in the building was shocking. We had to climb the quite narrow stairs to access the lift which was so small for a family carrying 2 baby strollers. After reaching the 4th level where the apartment was located, we had to go down the stairs with two strollers and two kids to reach the apartment door. I do not recommend this apartment to families with small kids at all. The apartment itself seemed to be renovated; however, the building outside the apartment (stairs, corridors) stinks lot as it is a very old building. The apartment looks like a long corridor (something like 4 x 20 m) and I do not recommend it if you like to stay in a place which really looks like an apartment. The kitchen was O.K. I will definitely not stay in this apartment if I go to Barcelona next time. I prefer to pay a little bit more and stay in a better place for my kids. The good point about the apartment was that your easy access to public transportation and lots of eateries around the apartment.
