We arrived a little later than anticipated but Oscar was waiting patiently for us outside the apartment. We were thrilled to find the place was even better than the photos we'd seen. This first floor apartment is accessed by elevator or one flight of steps. It was spotlessly clean with exceptionally comfortable beds, beautiful bed linen and towels. The kitchen is fully equipped with a large fridge freezer, gas hob, oven, filter coffee maker and microwave. There are plenty of dishes, mugs, bowls, cutlery and pots. The basket with wine, nibbles, pasta and a jar of sauce was very welcome. There are 2 small balconies from the lounge overlooking the street and a super private terrace accessed from the main bedroom where we ate breakfast. The shower room is modern and clean and houses the washing machine. I would happily stay here for longer than the 4 nights we had. There are plenty of bars, cafes, supermarkets and parks within minutes of the apartment and bus and metro stops are nearby. The immense Sagrada Familia is a few minutes walk and the Metro from here will whisk you all over the city. Oscar provided us with lots of information and was very helpful. He kindly arranged a taxi to take us to the airport (around 40 euros and are metered). This apartment was delightful and the bedrooms which are situated to the back were very quiet and all have shutters. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here but it is a residential area and you have to be mindful of the neighbours, so it's not for those who want to party or make a lot of noise.
Thank you Oscar for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment and I will return.
