Another "Should I stay in this apt. in Barcelona?" post

Jump to last reply

My first trip to Barcelona. We are going first to Venice for a week and then flying over on Vueling to Barcelona for a week. We are two middle-aged gals from Santa Monica, CA--(both named Pat!)

I have been studying best areas and even called my friend who moved back to his native Barcelona (alas, he lives in the suburbs in a too small place). Had decided Eixample Dreta was right for us. The discussion yesterday over L'Eixample vs. El Born let me to Habitat Apts. I found this one, which as you see is not in either but in Gotic'. It is in what seems to be a little alley off Carrer Comtal near Porta Angel. Why I like it is we wanted two separate bedrooms that both have decent-sized beds--which turns out to be very hard to find. But this seems to have two double bed sized bedrooms. However, it is on the first floor. Would this likely be very noisy? I am a light sleeper, my friend not so much. I wish I could find more reviews on it. They are all excellent on the page but may not be real.

Here's the link:

So far this is the only apartment the two Pats agree on.

Thanks so much for your insight, Fodorites!
