Communication with the agent / owner was excellent from before booking, and he answered all of my queries. We were able to arrange to hire a two person apartment and pay 90 extra to allow our daughter to use the sofa bed.
Directions to the venue were easy to follow and we were welcomed and shown local places to eat and shop when we arrived.
*** TIP*** Get yourself a five - day pass for the Metro and ride the buses and Metro trains right from the airport for just 33! It\\\'s easy to get about and you can download simple to follow Metro maps onto your phone. The route by Metro train to the apartment involves 3 air conditioned trains, but moving between them with suitcases is simple as there are elevators on every station. Or a taxi will cost about 35 (for one trip, so the Metro pass is much better value).
The location is excellent, with only a 30 metre walk to local shops and one of Barcelona\\\'s marvellous beaches. La Rambla and the city are a ½ hour walk or much shorter bus or Metro ride away. Everything you could possibly need is within easy reach (even tea bags) and the location is perfect for a combination of beach and city. The water is warm and very clear and the sandy beach is cleaned daily.There are many small convenience stores within 3 minutes\\\' walk, or a Spar, indoor fresh market, bank, three bakeries and a small supermarket within 5 minutes\\\' walk. A cheap evening meal will cost you about 10 and a more expensive one (near to the W hotel) will cost you about 20. You\\\'d need to stay for a month in order to try every restaurant and take away with 5 minutes\\\' walk! There are plenty of places locally that will hire out bicycles, electric scooters or motor scooters.
***TIP*** Make sure that you keep a close eye on your belongings! I\\\'m a retired police officer and constantly lecture my family about safety, but my daughter had her bag containing an iPhone 6, purse and some expensive makeup stolen on our last night there. The police were very helpful and even waited in numbers on the street as we tracked the phone, but when I rang it for them the thief switched it off straight away, so an insurance claim has had to be made.
The apartment itself is well equipped with easy to clean stainless steel worktop, oven, two ringed electric halogen hob and extractor, a refrigerator (complete with bottle of cava), flat screen TV (but with only German or Spanish channels) and very good air conditioning. The bedroom is separated from the kitchen / living room by a sliding door and another sliding door leads from the bedroom to the bathroom, a windowless room with WC, washbasin and very powerful shower (with two heads). The bathroom was well stocked with a hair dryer, towels, toilet rolls and hand soap. Entry to the apartment block and to the individual apartments is by electronic code, so there are no keys to worry about. There is a lift big enough for two people or one person plus a big suitcase.
***TIP*** get a room on the top floor, as other guests entering or leaving the building can be noisy! The Barcelona street cleaning also takes place at about 3 in the morning, so the higher up you are the better.
The only criticisms I could make were:
1) The WiFi was very unreliable and kept dropping out, despite the router being in a panel in the ceiling outside the entrance door;
2) There were only two very small pillows supplied, and my wife likes two pillows almost as large as an English county.
I also wish that Germans entering the building drunk and noisily would accede to requests made in German to be a little quieter. That said, the German lady in the apartment below ours actually asked me to tell her if her children were making too much noise, so it\\\'s about individuals not nationalities.
All said and done, I would recommend this accommodation without hesitation.
