Dear Family and Friends,
Chuck did a fabulous job of shopping for the apartment that we would rent for our week in Barcelona.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Actually we want to return and rent here for a month or more. There are many things we did not see or do, even though we were here for a whole week.
Our apartment is fully furnished. It has two bedrooms (one with queen bed and one with twin beds). The owner is an architect and has completely modernized this apartment. Chuck enjoyed the balcony every day for smoking his pipe.
This apartment has all expected amenities (dishwasher, clothes washer, modern kitchen with even an espresso maker.)
The apartment is located one and a half blocks from the metro. Very, very close. The tourists section of Barcelona is only three stops away. Actually, we have walked to the tourist center several times. It is downhill and an easy walk. The beauty of living here is that we are close to all the good stuff, but yet we are in a quiet neighborhood. This is great for getting a good night's sleep.
The neighborhood has many restaurants, pharmacies, grocery stores and produce markets nearby.
The condo is on the fourth floor and there is a good dependable elevator.
The wi-fi is terrific.
If you are planning a trip to Barcelona, we highly recommend this apartment to rent.
