Best location in Barca - 5mins walk to Plaza Catalunya, 3mins to Las Ramblas, 1min to Cathedral. Great facilities, comfy beds and easy check in. Right in the hub of all the action, yet quiet one you close the balcony windows. Street view is great entertainment and you are surrounded by numerous cafes, bars and restaurants. Easy Metro access too.... More

Small. Filthy walls. Paper thin walls. You can hear everything outside and above the apartment. Cheap price in a popular area. Very inconvenient. You have to lug your luggage to a completely different location to check in and get your key then continue on. The apartment was not terribly close to the office.

Great location, walking distance to many cafes, restaurants ect. Modern clean apartment . Only negative is check in is about 4-5 blocks away so your rolling you luggage thru the narrow streets to the apartment .Also when we were there (late April) the elevator was not working so we had to drag the luggage up some very narrow stairs.

This apartment is in a great location for shops and restaurants. Decor is modern and the apartment was clean. However it is tiny and the twin bedroom extremely small with bars on the window and resembles more of a large wardrobe. There were no basics in cupboards so you'd to buy everything for a few days holiday, so easier to... More

We came out of the airport and found the A2 bus easily. From Placa de Catalunya it was less than 10 minutes walk in the sunshine to Portaferrisa and then a quick left to the apartment which we found immediately.

There are 2 huge benefits of this accomodation; It is in an excellent central location from where you can walk to all of the central attractions. In particular it is near to the Food market on Ramblas which is highly recommended for breakfast, tapas or just looking. Secondly it gives the independance and space of an apartment.
