Great location/tough stairs
Loved the location....it was a bit hard maneuvering our large luggage up 3 narrow flights! Nice of Friendly Rental to let us park our luggage until check in !
Great urban accommodation
We - i.e. my daughter of three years and I - were quite happy with our homebase for exploring Barcelona.
The flat is very conveniently located and has allowed us to reach many of Barcelona’s highlights (at least those in the centre) by foot (for all other purposes we were quite close to the bus and metro lines). It furthermore provides you with a great immediate surrounding - though for people that are sensitive to noise: this is a very urban flat, there is a lot of life going on around and if you are looking for silent, this is not the place.
As for the flat itself, we appreciated that it was very clean and really contained everything that can be expected. Since we only went to Barcelona for a few days we especially appreciated that the kitchen was not only equipped with cooking utensils but also with the some spices; all such things one quite often has to buy en gross to use just once during one's stay). Since it was July when we went to Barcelona it was rather warm during the night - the AC that the flat is equipped with, however, provided sufficient cold. The only downside for me was the very, very narrow door and staircase that leads to the apartment - while this would normally not bother me, it was very inconvenient when trying to walk up the stairs with my daughter and all the luggage (which could not be left downstairs). Insofar the apartment cannot be recommended for People travelling with small children (which cannot walk stairs securely alone) alone.
To summarise the apartment at this price is a veritable bargain. The only possible thing that people might object to, would be the stairs (our apartment was on the third floor).
