We thought the unit would be too far from city center but it is very near a small metro line that runs right into Placa Catalunya. Short walk up to the apartment in the evening from the metro past a small market and a bakery which were great places to pick up some wine and breakfast snacks.
Walking downtown was only 20 minutes and was downhill. Barcelona streets felt very safe in the neighborhood around the apartment. Barcelona is a great city and the metro/bus system is easy to use and is all in Goggle Maps.
Staff at the office were very friendly and helpful. We arrived in the morning and they let us into the unit early. If it wasn't ready they would have checked our bags so we could visit the city and check in later.
We were in Barcelona 5 days and still didn't see everything. We will be going back.
I liked the location - quiet, yet close to transportation. Clean and spacious. Only thing I did not like was the payment process - had to send cash to the owner, and bring cash when we met. Going through pay pals or vrbo would have been easier and cheaper.
