We first rented this wonderful apartment on the Rambla in Barcelona in 2016. The location was perfect, just about 5 minutes' walk to Raval, Barri Gotic, Placa Catalunya, La Boqueria market, the cathedral, and more. We returned to Barcelona this year and were lucky the property was available when we planned our trip. Walking out the front door, every convenience (metro, grocery store, pharmacy, tapas bars, restaurants, shopping, museums and gorgeous buildings) were there to enjoy. This property is unique in that it is totally quiet because it faces the inside of the block, not the street. There is virtually no street noise, which is a real problem in many places that face the Rambla. Mario again was a wonderful host being both punctual and attentive at every turn. A delightful and cozy place to stay for two peas in a pod like us!
