Great location, about 15 minute walk from La Ramblas or 3 metro stops, but it's a nice walk in a safe neighbourhood so we chose to walk each day. The apartment was very clean, a nice friendly welcome from Denise and a lovely smell of warm bread in reception which was equally welcoming! We all struggled to sleep on the first night with road/traffic noise ang light through the blinds - we only realised that we could close the shutters on the second night which was a big help. Unfortunately there was a lot of noise from the room above early in the morning and late at night; not the fault of Erik Vokel at all, just disappointing. The apartment was smart but small, I had hoped for more space by booking a 2 bedroom. I would rather have had more living space and smaller kitchen area. We also found the beds to be rather hard and uncomfortable. That aside, these are lovely apartments with reception staff who are polite and eager to please which can't be underestimated and I would therefore recommend but seek out a larger apartment if we returned.
