This apartment is very nice, and the hosts, Alex and Sara, really go out of their way to make their guests comfortable. They met us at the property when we got in (late, due to a flight delay), introduced the property and neighborhood to us, and were available to answer questions and give advice via phone or email during our entire two-week stay. We were there over the Christmas holidays (Dec. 16-30), and our family of five adults was very comfortable in this property. The four bathrooms in this apartment are a rarity in Barcelona, and they contributed greatly to the quality of our stay. We could all get ready at the same time, which is great. We highly recommend this apartment. It is in a great neighborhood, is very comfortable, and offers easy Metro access.
I looked at hundreds of apartments when planning our trip, and this is one of the very few large ones that had a bathroom for every bedroom, so you have the privacy and convenience of a hotel (bathroom-wise, and each bedroom with a key-locking door) while having the great public dining/living/kitchen space of a home.
There are literally dozens of good restaurants, bars, etc, as well as groceries and any other shopping (clothing, drugstore, electronics, movie theater, you name it) within a few minutes' walk of this apartment.
For a large family group or group of friends, you cannot go wrong with this apartment. We travel a lot and often stay in rental houses or apartments, and this one cannot be beat in terms of comfort, style, and cost.
