Barcelona Apartments

Jump to last reply

Not to be confused with my Costa Brava post . . . 1st timers to Barcelona. Family of 4 (teens 16 & 13). Mid-July 5 days; heading to Begur for a week afterwards.

Would like to be well located to restaurants/markets and some sites and good transportation to the others. Reasonably quiet at night would be good as we aren't night owls.

El Born sounds up our alley but I can't tell for sure. Others have mentioned/liked Eixample. I've read a lot of the posts here to try to get up to speed. There are a zillion rentals.

I've started "conversing" with www.likelivingthere.com. The first 2 suggestions were

http://likelivingthere.com/Documents/Apt%20pages%20BCN/BCN%20pdf%20pages/El%20Born%203%20bedroom.pdf

and

http://likelivingthere.com/Documents/Apt%20pages%20BCN/BCN%20pdf%20pages/Stylish%20home%20base.pdf

there seem to be other options within those 2 buildings as well.

Another popular option I've seen mentioned is Habitat's: http://tinyurl.com/mckjckd

Any comments on the location of these? Pros/cons?

thanks for your help
