This is an excellent place in an excellent location. I'd been to Barcelona a number of times before and always ventured into the "touristy" areas, but Gracia, full of locals people, local restaurants and bars was joyful to experience. And the apartment is right in the middle of it all. If you want the centre, one of two metros get you into there easily, or you can stretch the legs and walk 30 mins (45 to Barcelonetta). But we ended up spending a large portion of our time here, it was so great. The apartment is amazing - spacious, modern, quiet, well maintained - with all the essentials. The apartments barcelona team were highly professional, friendly and responsive. Without doubt we will come back to Barcelona, without doubt we'll use apartments barcelona and without doubt we'll stay at Monica's place!
