Please help me choose a Barcelona apartment

Jump to last reply

I've been looking at 2 bedroom apartments on the Habitat site (since several people on the board have stayed in these apartments and give them good ratings). I've narrowed the list down to 4. My main critieria are light and airy and wifi and a terrace or balcony. There will be 2 of us and this is our first time in Barcelona - my first time in Spain! We'll be going for a week in mid March (returning home before Holy Week).

Most of my sightseeing seems to be centered in Eixample with La Rambla a second hot spot of sightseeing. Also a day trip to Montserrat. My travel companion (TC) wants to shop and will tag along with me for whatever sightseeing I want to do - she has no opinions on what to see and do but that's another story.

Here's my shortlist in Eixample (priority order):

Modernista B (terrace)

Rossello 1 (interior patio)

Comtal 22 (light and airy)

Modernista A (small balcony)

My fifth choice is Ferran 1 in Barri Gothic. The down side is it looks dark (but may not be). The positive - 2 bedrooms each with queen beds.

Thanks for your help!
