the location was unbeatable, close to the beach and the gothic quarter, but far enough away from las Ramblas to not be too noisy
there was very little care and attention given to the place. Example: the main light switch did not work, the curtains were too long and hanging a couple of feet on the floor. Small details that showed the owners don't care for the place.
Great location. Near a lot of great bars and shops.
Yes - arranging to get let into the apartments was a nightmare. We were left for 40 minutes in a dark alley waiting for someone to turn up and give us the keys. During that time somebody stole one of our bags and my husband had to chase the thief and wrestle the bag off him. Not a nice start to a holiday and I blame FGA as they left us like sitting ducks waiting for them with all our bags in a quiet and dark street. When we told them what happened they didn't care, nor did they apologise for leaving us waiting so long. In fact the only reason they ever turned up with the keys was because we rang them about 10 times asking where they were. Would never use this company again as they put the safety of their customers at risk.
I enjoyed the location of the apartment there was lots of nice little bars and restaurants which were very reasonably priced. It was about a 10 minute walk to la ramblas aswell which was great.
The apartment was very basic could do with being refurbished. It was very small. The shower leaked all over the floor and we had to keep mopping it up ther door of the shower was hanging off. The bed linen had stains on it also the couches in the apartment were very dirty looking had to put a sheet over them so we could sit on them.
Great location, close to metro stop, 8 blocks to the beach, plenty of shopping and dining places near the apt.
Would be nice if some basic things were left in the apt, like salt oil, etc. that everyone uses for breakfast, etc.
The location of the apartment is very good and central. The downside is that it can get a bit noisy. Recommended to bring some ear plugs or to go out until late yourself.
Very good location near to the seaside, railway station, metro, the very center of the town. Plenty of bars, restaurants and shops near the hotel.
