I stayed one week with my family in this flat and I enjoyed this week . The flat is very nice and warm with 3 rooms and a small swimming pool shared with all the tenants. You can have a drink on the terrace if you want. Flat near the underground ( 2 mn ) . A supermarket is next to the flat and you can find everything.
The only point that could be improved concerns the sound insulation. the walls are very thin and if your neighbourg is noisy ,your week could be disturbed but this point is checked by the landlord with a specific rule and a noise detection after 11pm.
This apartment was immaculately clean, with good facilities. The plunge pool on the roof was excellent. It was a 2 minute walk to the metro so really good base for exploring Barcelona. We had an apartment on the front with a small balcony which caught the late afternoon sun, excellent for relaxing and watching the world go by. If I have to find fault, I would say the second room was slightly small, particularly to 2 older teenagers.
Stayed in this apartment with 5 other lads for a stag do and the apartment was nothing short of brilliant. Comfortable beds with fresh linen and towels provided for longer stays. A modern kitchen with a large fridge, coffee machine and cooker. The bathroom was perfect and very clean. The decor inside the room was very modern with some touches of Spanish tradition with some tiled patterns and the little balcony's on each side of the dividing wall were perfect for a bit of air in the morning or if you just want to watch the city in full swing. The Air Conditioning was also a massive bonus as when we were in Barcelona, the temperature never dropped below 27 degrees so we needed a break from that heat and the Air Con did just that. When we arrived in Barcelona, we found the apartment easily by jumping in a taxi which cost €30 between 6 lads so basically a good price even for a family or couple as it's no stress and no worry. Although we did use Urgell metro station to get start the day and get home at the end of the day, as it is less than a 3-4 minute walk from the apartment entrance. Once we got to the apartment, a quick call to the aparteasy contact and someone met us within 20-25 minutes to take our details and give us a brief tour of the apartment. We waited in a bar/cafe two doors down which was ran by two Venezuelan ladies and the food was a real treat and very reasonable in price. We used this little bar a couple times to start the night as they stuck on the football for us too which was excellent. The terrace at the top of the apartment was a lovely little bonus, a small childrens pool, plenty of sun loungers and a nice padded seating area at the back where many people would be reading, relaxing and having a few drinks. All in all, I can't really complain much about this place as it was a very enjoyable stay.

This whole building is owned by Aparteasy. The location is great, only around 10 minutes walk to La Rambla. The thing that really made us angry was that we had booked and payed for an apt with 3 bedrooms. When we got there, they took us to an apt with 1 bedroom and insisted that that was the one we booked. We could prove that we booked the 3-bedroom apt, and it turned out that they had double booked that apt. In the end, they solved it, but not OK to insist that we should stay in a much smaller apt when we had already payed for the larger one. It is also quite difficult to get in contact with the administrators, they responded to our sms sometimes. BUT, they were very helpful when we needed assistance with our luggage. In all, I guess it is a mixed review, both good and bad.
Great relaxing views from the roof top. Room was spacious enough for all and good cooking facilities. Easy to walk to restaurants.
