We were met at the apartments by Vicki who showed us our two x two bed apartments and ran through the 'rules' and took a damage deposit.
The apartment was spotlessly clean and included a full size hairdryer, towels, good equipped kitchen, dish cloth, dishwasher tablets, toilet roll and a fabulous nespresso coffee maker and pods a la George clooney. In our apartment we had one twin/ double and the room room had bunk beds which were plenty big enough. There is a strict no noise policy after 10pm as noise travels through the buildings.
Location was good too. 15 min walk from the beach and 15 min walk to the Marina metro station. Marina serviced the line L4 which took you direct to stations near la ramblas. We bought a ten journey ticket for 9.95 euros and kept passing the ticket back (we were in a group of 8). Be careful on the metro though, two friends were near victims of pick pocketing even though we were very mindful of our bags. This happened during the day wore bags across the body. Be careful!
There are super markets close by to the apartment so easy to pick up essentials and extra toilet roll! The port Olympic area and beach have plenty of lovely restaurants, bars and cafes.
A great location if you like the beach side of the city but everywhere else really accessible too.More
