Very clean, well-equipped kitchen, great location (5 mins walk from the Placa Catalunya, about 8 from the top of the Ramblas). Met at the door by the owner/keyholder, he showed us around the apartment, explained the keys, made sure the heating was on, etc. Gave us a card with contact numbers then ...sent a text 4 hours later reminding us that they were available if any questions/problems arose. Really helpful. All facilities in good condition, although the lounge/dining area was smaller than it looks in the photos. I dropped my phone on the bedroom floor and it fell apart; I put it back together but didn't notice that the SIM card had fallen out until I got back to UK. I sent an e-mail to the owner, the card was found under the bed and it was in the post back to me 24 hours later.
