On to Barcelona apts

Jump to last reply

Hi, just booked our hotel for Seville for our May trip, now the Barcelona apt is the only accommodation left to book! This would be for DH, myself & our 2 adult kids for 4 nights.

Would appreciate all opinions since I am not familiar with the streets, noise factor etc. I would like something that's walking distance to most attractions but also close to public transportation since I am not one for long walks unfortunately! Though I have heard that it's easier/almost as cheap, to take a cab if needed especially since there are 4 of us. Would also prefer a balcony, not essential though.
Here are my choices:

The first 3 are my top choices, thought they are more expensive. Casp seems to be short on seating in the living room but it would be nice to have the 3rd bedroom. Has anyone stayed there?
I like the 4th one too but it is an individual owner & the website charges the whole amount upfront though it says I get a full refund as long as I cancel 60 days prior. I am not too comfortable with that.
The last 2 are slightly less pricey. I have not heard of any experiences with the agency - Sweet Dreams Barcelona. Has anyone dealt with them? Same with LovingApartments.com

Sorry if the choices are too many! I feel like I have to be really sure of this since (except for one), the deposits are non-refundable. I'm not sure if it is still early but would rather do it now when most apts are still available. I know I can count on everyone here to help me make up my mind. Thanks!
