What Past Guests Are Saying
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The Good: The location of this apartment was prime. Being in the Gracia area, away from the hustle and bustle of La Rambla gave us a place to unwind. The metro is very close and so we were able to siesta for a few hours in the day. The mattress was comfortable. Loved being in Gracia where we enjoyed the restaurants, markets and shops. Felt very safe. The young man checking us in was so friendly and helpful. He mapped out our top destinations and showed us how to get around the city, giving us useful tips & restaurant recommendations.
The Bad: Not as cute and stylish as it claims. The furniture was a bit shabby, the view from the window was to an inner courtyard where laundry was hung. The hallway into the apartment was dirty, drab & dark. I didn't feel like they were prepared for us. The bed was unmade with only one pillow and no pillow case. Set of towels were for one person & we had to ask for another set. So unlike our stay in Egypt where in the two different apartments we stayed at they had the proper amount of linens for each person, the rooms were welcoming and they even had some fruit and cookies to receive us.
The Ugly: Okay, all the above can be forgivable, but the two worst experiences were the lack of duvet covers & toilet paper. The "blankets" were duvet inserts, one of them was down-filled, but it was stained and I had to smell it to see if it was washed. Usually inserts have removable and washable covers, so to me it felt cheap and unsanitary not to provide them. We had half a roll of toilet paper, not enough for the 4 day stay w/ 2 people. We were told to go to the office to pick up another roll. When we went to get one a young lady told us we needed to buy our own. Really?? After protesting, she relented and gave us a roll. It was very demeaning to have to beg for a roll of toilet paper which should be included in the rental, especially for short-term stays.

No comment to the 2/5 review. It looks very fair :)
