We were traveling to Barcelona for the first time. This was a business trip for me but I had my 2+2 family with me. The counter service/key-pickup was a good experience and helpful despite it being tucked somewhere in the back alleys - I'd suggest for the keys to be sent to where you are if you can afford the time.
The apartment was small but comfortable. It meets the basic requirements of a small family, which we are. It has a bedroom and a living room with a sofabed where my kids spend most of their time with watching Spongebob Schwammkopf (most of the sat TV channels are NOT in English but my kids enjoyed it anyway). The apartment was located a walking distance from the beach-front and also accesible to public transport such as buses and the tube - and relatively in walking distance to the local mall and La Ramblas. It fits the reason why we were there - business travel into the city in the day and family time in the afternoons. Only 2 contention/improvement are: (1) the shower area has no separator other than a shower curtain which is a tad short, which practically flooded the bathroom when anyone showers (2) the 2 single-beds of which one was somehow broken and was held together by duct tape (doesn't seem to last that long in cold and dry weather). Other than that we were happy tenants. Do check out the friendly convenience stores situated 2 blocks away from the place. They provide domestic supplies plus go out of their way to attend to your needs such as a spare pram or a quick call for a cab to the airport.
Overall, it made our stay in Barcelona a pleasant one. Would travel and stay there again.
