Neighborhoods in Madrid and Barcelona?

Jump to last reply

I'm traveling to Spain with my parents in June. Last summer we went to Italy and had a lot of luck finding/renting apartments for a few nights in each city; I'm hoping to find the same thing this summer for Spain (and it's my job to figure out accommodations). Does anyone have any recommendations for fun (but not too loud/crazy), accessible/close to many attractions neighborhoods in Madrid and Barcelona?

We'll be in Madrid for 3 nights and Barcelona for 4 nights. I'm 30 and my parents are 68 and 59 (but very active/fit/etc).

If, by chance, anyone has stayed in a great apt and has a link (trip advisor/airbnb/vrbo, etc.) I'd, of course, appreciate that tip!
